The Movable Book Society, Svengoolie and Randall Flann, a.k.a. Artist RoFo

During late evening on Wednesday, August 26, 2015, while I Internet researched interactive/on movable paper design techniques for a series of 32, 17” by 22” color illustrations of static (fixed in one place) and movable Svengoolie Art by Randall Flann… I ran across The Movable Book Society website, http://www.movablebooksociety.org.

I found The Movable Book Society website to be an enjoyable, educational and an additional inspiration to complete my movable works of art. I sincerely thank The Movable Book Society, especially, Director Ann Montanaro Staples for allowing me the privilege, honor and gracious opportunity to be considered for acceptance in a very prestigious, educational, enjoyable and impressive group of contributing Fine Arts Artist and Paper Engineers with its internationally recognized society and operations.

I designed drawings that complemented my October 19, 1999, U.S. Patent Number: 5,966,743 A, entitled: SUBSTANCE DISPENSING HEADGEAR, referred to herein as the RoFo BevDisHeadgear beverage dispenser, or the RoFo Headgear beverage dispenser concept with MeTV network’s Svengoolie program.

"Svengoolie" (a play on the word Svengali), currently played by Rich Koz, wears face makeup, a wig, and top hat, that shows various (and often low-budget) horror, sci-fi (science-fiction) movies nationally on Saturday night on the Me-TV network.

   

As a Midwesterner, for numerous years I have watched this campy horror hosted program. During the year 2012, Svengoolie; Rich Koz had a heart attack. While Rich Koz recuperated, I illustrated my first series of Svengoolie Art by Randall Flann that I mailed to him to lift up his spirits during his recovery. My Svengoolie Artwork can be seen a little less than the middle of the page on Svengoolie's Photo Gallery page.

During April, 2015, while I watched an episode of Svengoolie… I noticed one of his major signature props; a Top Hat. My first impression was to illustrate his topper with iconic images recognizable and related to his 2 hour horror program. Moreover… my Dali-esque perception didn’t settle for that. A more elaborate, creative idea emerged. Have parts in my colorful illustration become animated, movable, to add greater interest to an already amusing theme. After a period of time of trial and error, I was able to come up with 3, 17 inches by 22 inches movable illustrations that paid "O-Maj" (homage, a physical representation of respect) to Chicago, Illinois’ Saturday night horror genre debonair dapper blue-collar unconventional Videopire (words video and vampire combined. Coined by Randall Flann) host, Svengoolie.

The following are descriptions of the 3, 17” by 22” color illustrations of interactive/movable Svengoolie Art by Randall Flann.

1. View of the back of Svengoolie. By turning a flap on his tuxedo coat’s elbow… Animates/moves his arm with pointed thumb gesturing to notice a RoFo Svengoolie, universal STUDIOS horror movieS host top hat BevDisHeadgear beverage dispenser that he wears.

2. On another illustration, on the bottom half of the RoFo Svengoolie, universal STUDIOS horror movieS host top hat BevDisHeadgear beverage dispenser is an “OFFICIAL CHICKEN THROWER” BUTTON. When the “OFFICIAL CHICKEN THROWER” BUTTON is pivoted, “your” hand throws a Rubber Chicken hitting the invincible and impenetrable colorful Enchantress Nocturna’s Svengoolie Rubber Chicken Shield.

Above the official chicken thrower button, is a Svengoolie Orchestra Conductor Baton. When the baton is swiveled from left to right, Doug (Scharf) Graves of the band; Doug And The Graves-Tones, plays a jaunty tune on the Lowrey () organ keys.

3. On another illustration. On the bottom half of the RoFo Svengoolie, universal STUDIOS horror movieS host top hat BevDisHeadgear beverage dispenser between a Vincent Price look-alike and Boris Karloff look-alike mounted gargoyle heads is a closed Massive Wooden Door. Maneuvering a nearby masonry wall’s black boulder backwards and forwards, opens the Massive Wooden Door. Behind the wall and in front of the opened Massive Wooden Door, an Arm and Hand extends to shake your hand with a warm Welcome and invites you to come in and take pleasure in viewing a fine Svengoolie program… in addition to enjoying watching a Universal Studios Horror Movie. Memories - lasting – forever.

Above the Chamber Massive Wooden Door, are Svengoolie’s friends, Zallman T. Tombstone, a disembodied talking skull and Kerwyn, a prehistoric Smart Aleck Rubber Chicken. Jangling the nearby black gate, the 2 characters' reacts jittery. The other 55 static 17” by 22” color RoFo RoFo SVENGOOLIE: UNIVERSAL STUDIOS HORROR MOVIES HOST TOP HAT BevDisHeadgear beverage dispenser illustrations shows separately or, being worn and demonstrated by Svengoolie.

I sent Director Ann Montanaro Staples of The Movable Book Society a RoFo SVENGOOLIE: UNIVERSAL STUDIOS HORROR MOVIES HOST TOP HAT BevDisHeadgear beverage dispenser movable illustrations DVD and letter. Ann corresponded back to me and stated that the DVD and letter was interesting, but was not the kind of movable illustrations that is of interest to members of The Movable Book Society. She went on to inform me that the primary focus is on commercially printed books with movable illustrations. I have never met in my life a person with such a beautiful, compassionate, perceptive and professionally assisting outlook towards the artistically talented and the movable book illustrations knowledge needing desires of other persons as I have found in Ann.

The Movable Book Society consists of a forum for collectors, artists, curators, book sellers, book producers, and others to share enthusiasm and exchange information about pop-up and movable books. The Society has approximately 400 members globally and increasing per year. The Movable Book Society holds biennial conferences that awards two Meggendorfer Prizes (Lothar Meggendorfer {November 6, 1847 until July 7, 1925 in Munich, Germany} was a German illustrator and early cartoonist known for his pop-up books). In addition, an award is given to the Outstanding Emerging Paper Engineer.

I strongly suggest that you take the opportunity to expand your horizon of knowledge and enjoy learning more about The Movable Book Society, http://www.movablebooksociety.org.

I don’t wanna see a White Christmas. I wanna see a Green Christmas… Give Me Your Money!

While waiting for my investor to invest the manufacturing funds to produce the first commercial run of RoFo FÚTBOL BevDisHeadgear beverage dispensers, I occupy my time doing “busywork.” Work that is unnecessary but is done to avoid playing video games, watching television, doing drugs or drinking alcohol. In this case my busytime was accomplished by painting and creating 58, 17 inches x 22 inches, Svengoolie static (fixed in place) and movable illustrations. Svengoolie Artwork by Randall Flann.

The show's title, Svengoolie, is taken from the name of the character host. The horror movie show is a long-running local program in the surrounding Chicago area and has expanded nationally, airing on Saturday nights on MeTV, owned by Weigel Broadcasting Company (a.k.a. Weigel Broadcasting), an American television broadcasting company. The company is based in Chicago, Illinois, alongside its flagship station WCI U-TV (Channel 26), at 26 North Halsted Street in the Greektown neighborhood.

A movable illustration (or book)… is a hand colored paper animated by hand assembled inserted paper tabs, cutout paper joined with paper ribbon, wire pivots and brads. This style of artwork is called Paper Engineering, the term used today to describe the paper mechanics of a movable illustration.

The RoFo Svengoolie, universal STUDIOS horror movieS host top hat BevDisHeadgear beverage dispenser movable illustrations video I created, is an informative video about my family-friendly RoFo Svengoolie, universal STUDIOS horror movieS host top hat BevDisHeadgear beverage dispenser movable illustrations and what are movable illustrations. A Movable illustration is a seldom produced art form that is enjoyable to interact with and to look at. My intention was to make a historical movable illustration video documentary that other persons may review and be inspired from.

Hypothetically, the following are detailed descriptions of the [fictitious] “product”. The handcrafted RoFo Svengoolie, universal STUDIOS horror movieS host top hat BevDisHeadgear beverage dispenser is made of lightweight food-grade quality plastic: Linear Low Density Polyethylene (PET). Weights approximately 1½ pounds empty, and about 5½ pounds full. Holds and dispenses around 67.6 fl oz, roughly 6 - 12 fl oz glasses of refreshment (6 Pack/Pint). The dimensions are around Height 9 inches and 11inches Diameter. The product is a Nonalcohol Beverage Dispenser. This statement protects me against frivolous lawsuits pertaining to the unwarranted use of alcohol associated with the product - including freedom from responsibility for its misuse. A RoFo BevDisHeadgear beverage dispenser is appropriate for children 16 years old and older. It’s a Cool Tool for a Good Ghoul out of School.

Die and Go to Hell Randall Flann, Artist, and Comedian… And Waste of Skin.

Thank you everyone for not knowing me, or never contributing to and never enjoying my U.S.A. patented invention entitled; SUBSTANCE DISPENSING HEADGEAR, a.k.a October 19, 1999, U.S. Patent Number: 5,966,743 A, referred to herein as the RoFo BevDisHeadgear beverage dispenser, or the RoFo Headgear beverage dispenser. A person can be in the bowels of solitary confinement in a prison, all their life… Without ever having been behind bars, and never showing evidence on their face or signs of the effects in their behavior.

Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is mental disorders that can develop after a person is exposed to a traumatic event, such as sexual assault, warfare, traffic collisions, or other threats on a person's life and are at a higher risk of suicide. Following the rules, regulations and restrictions of religious beliefs and social mores, while trying to achieve recognition in a challenging uncommon profession over a course of decades can also cause and have the same effects as Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

The following is a summary of recent events. On Thursday, April 7, 2016, at 7:00 p.m. and 9:30 p.m., Jay Leno performed at Milwaukee’s Potawatomi Hotel & Casino, in The Northern Lights Theater. To have seen his show… The suckers, I meant to say - the viewers had to shell out between $85.00 to $100.00 per person. Those prices are okay… if you’re gonna pay for a hooker, or bribe your way into heaven through a church, a temple, synagogue, or mosque through a donation, but to pay to sit down and listen to someone say “Why did the chicken cross the road”… Is not my idea of spending your money wisely, even if you are drunk, high or both while watching the performance. But, now that I think about it… It’s so much better than paying good money to watch the Milwaukee Brewers, the Milwaukee Wave, the Milwaukee Bucks, or the Green Bay Packers live. I mean… Do what I do… If you want to look at a loser, or someone that you can really get a laugh at… Look in the mirror!

Friday, May 6, 2016, I received documents in the mail from BIG DOG PRODUCTIONS, Inc., a company owned and operated by none other than comedian Jay Leno. To make a long story short… the documents that Jay sent verified that he acknowledged me and remembered personally handling and demonstrating my RoFo GRIDIRON FOOTBALL BevDisHeadgear beverage dispenser during an episode of the Tonight Show with Jay Leno and that he regret the fact he had not the time to talk with and have a photograph taken with me when he performed in Milwaukee. Though I did not have contact with them when he was in Milwaukee for a few hours… Jay Leno took out the time to let me know that he remembered who I was; my product and that… out of all the persons that he comes in contact with on a daily basis… That I was an individual that was not forgotten whom he had met in his life.

Since I’ve been involved with my investor… Since 2007, when according to my daughter, she first introduced him to me, because he was tutoring her algebra to become a funeral director and for a realistic basis… A long distance “booty call” (a late night summons, often made via telephone, to arrange clandestine sexual liaison) between the both of them. Then… in the year 2012, when two Mexicans murdered my daughter in Green Bay, Wisconsin, I was assured by the investor that he still planned to invest a quarter million dollars in my U.S. Patent Number: 5,966,743 A, entitled: SUBSTANCE DISPENSING HEADGEAR, referred to herein as the RoFo BevDisHeadgear beverage dispenser, or the RoFo Headgear beverage dispenser for the purpose of having it manufactured into a customer ready product. To date, I still wait for this investment monies.

So… as an artist with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee, living as an On-Site Building Manager for the past 31 plus years, I performed busywork (work that keeps a person busy but has little value in itself). I performed busywork way before Wednesday, August 26, 2015, while I internet researched interactive/on movable paper design techniques for a series of 17 inches by 22 inches color illustrations of static and movable Svengoolie Art by Randall Dexter Flann, so far I still wait for my investor to release manufacturing funds.

In closing… I am trying to emphasize to the reader of this article, curiosity seeker and admirer of my invention, is that since I first invented the SUBSTANCE DISPENSING HEADGEAR, I have received international acclaim that I am seriously humbled and grateful for… and at the same time disappointed and ashamed I don’t have a customer ready RoFo BevDisHeadgear beverage dispenser product for the mutual benefits of both myself and my prospective global customers.

MeTV’s Svengoolie program and Artist RoFo has a Falling out.

Thursday night, September 23, 2016, I was looking at the Svengoolie website to see if their Photo Gallery would once again displayed drawings and works of art from Svengoolie fans. As I previously mentioned… I created 32, 17" x 22" RoFo illustrations I communicated by email with the executive producer of Svengoolie; Jim Roche. Mr. Roche was kind enough to inform me the date and time that a few of my illustrations would be shown on his July Svengoolie episode featuring the movie curse of the COBRA and we left it at that.

In real time, Friday, September 23, 2016 I left a message on both Mr. Roaches and Mr. Kos voicemails regarding my disappointment that I was not acknowledged for the inspiration I gave to MeTV's Svengoolie program to create new limited editions of the Svengoolie buttons and magnets. Viewers of my artwork can immediately identify the influence and similarity to that of the Svengoolie buttons and Svengoolie magnets. One specifically image that was modified for the profit-seeking and broadcast recognition MeTV's Svengoolie program is an obvious modification of my “Official Svengoolie Thrower” button. Compare the two images, a person can plainly see how MeTV's Svengoolie program altered my original “Official Svengoolie Thrower” button to their show’s theme.

To see anything different would be hypocritical and deny the proof/evidence is a deliberate insult … first to my artwork then secondly to my intelligence. My artwork was the profound impact that motivated Chicago's MeTV's Svengoolie program enterprise to fabricate and sell an innovative line of merchandise.

See how the first two images were combined to create the third… and I wasn’t even thanked by MeTV or by the Svengoolie program for my Svengoolie Official Svengoolie Thrower design that inspired the third design. Because I cannot afford a lawyer MeTV and the Svengoolie program… infringed upon my publicly acknowledged, noncopyrighted original artwork altered it with the deliberate and acknowledged intent to profit from it for their own gain.

Some of MeTV’s Svengoolie program’s buttons and magnets were also motivated by the influence and existence of my 58, 17 inches x 22 inches, Svengoolie static (fixed in place) and movable illustrations; Svengoolie Artwork by Randall Flann works of art. You would be angry to if you knew and established company stalled in altered your original creation our creations for their own exploitation and profit!

Australian Road Rider magazine premiered
RoFo MOTORCYCLE BevDisHeadgear beverage dispenser.

July 2015 edition of Australia’s premier motorcycle periodical:
Australian Road Rider magazine…

Road Rider Magazine Road Rider Magazine

with its Pulitzer Prize-winning caliber journalist and Editor Mr. Mick Matheson published an article pertaining to America’s king of kitschy (decorative beverage dispensers that are regarded as tasteless, sentimental, or ostentatious in style) beverage dispensing toppers, FIRKINHEAD, “The Head Giver of Foam”, a.k.a. Fine Arts Artist RōFō (Randall Flann), the RoFo MOTORCYCLE BevDisHeadgear beverage dispenser on page 126.


The Australian Road Rider magazine is considered amongst worldwide motorcycle authorities and enthusiasts, one of the world’s best motorcycle magazines for current features regarding motorcycle industry news, motorcycle history, latest motorcycle product information & development, events, and motorbike trends Journalism.

William G. "Willie G." Davidson; Alive and Dead. Willie G. “The Weasel” Davidson is no longer the man he was. Thank you God!

Saturday, January 31, 2015 10 AM until 11:07 AM in the motorcycle riders’ themed Iron Horse Hotel, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, recognized American Photographer Michael Lichter had a Motorcycle Photographs Reception Show in the basement during the photographer’s reception; Mr. Lichter presented a 1 hour color slideshow retrospect of “CAPTURING A GENERATION ON BIKES.”

In the 60 Minutes presentation, Mr. Lichter explained slide by slide the events, mood, observations, and cultural norms of the times (circa 1969 through the present).

I sat, in the third row, in the outside by the aisle. During the middle of the presentation, Mr. Lichter gave an acknowledgment to a person present at the affair for the manufacturing and history of the Harley Davidson motorcycle; *William G. "Willie G." Davidson, who sat in the center seat of the front row with family and friends by the slide projector. I was stunned and excited because after more than 11 ½ years of what his company done with my invention the RoFo BIG TWIN Headgear beverage dispenser, since the year 2013.

To most persons (who don’t know him personally), he stood as a symbol of motorcycle intellectual integrity. For me, as an everyday opportunistic, disreputable, nepotistic, undeserving, untalented Son of a Bitch. Here was my chance to tell this man my hurt, betrayment, and rage over Harley Davison Motor Company’s theft of my motorcycle design. After the presentation ended, Mr. Lichter spoke with Willie G. Davidson. Mr. Davidson mentioned the various paintings he produced to Mr. Lichter. Mr. Lichter left, I immediately approached, introduced myself to William G. Davidson (Willie G. “The Weasel” Davidson, as I call him, for his part for stealing my design). His grandson, I suspected, stood by him. “Willie… my name is Randall Flann. I promised myself I was going to say this to you before I died. Willie Davidson… You’re a Son of a Bitch for stealing my 2003 motorcycle design. In year 2003, during Harley Davison Motorcycle Company’s 100th Anniversary… During the evening of the last day, Sunday, while the stage was setting up for that Elton John fiasco, a Harley-Davison Company representative instructed me to come over to the stage and talk with him. I explained what the device was on top of my head. The Harley Davison representative took a photograph of me wearing my RoFo BIG TWIN Headgear beverage dispenser, kept my business card, and an illustrated brochure. One year later, Harley Davison Motorcycle Company comes out with a replica of my motorcycle beverage dispenser design. For 100 years,” as I pointed out the detailed features on my RoFo BIG TWIN Headgear beverage dispenser (now called the RoFo MOTORCYCLE BevDisHeadgear beverage dispenser) to Willie G. Davison, I continued “Your company had the same muffler design for 100 years, until your representative took my information, designed and reproduced it as a mechanical version. One year later… Harley-Davison Motorcycle Company earned over $1 billion.” Mr. Davidson’s appearance, to me, was that of an elderly, short, thin, frail, skeletal-framed, geriatric man (senior adult) wearing his signature black beret with Haley Davison Motorcycle Company logo, with all concern he asked me “What kind?” I replied, “A Harley-Davidson 2004 XL 1200 Sportster. The similarities were more than beyond coincidental.” I knew from his question that William G. Davidson was no longer the same man of influence that inherited the prestige and privileged circumstances that came with his family’s Harley-Davidson name sake.

Note: Years 2004 to 2006 were an important wakeup call for me about how Harley-Davidson Motor Company obtains and develops motorcycle design concepts. Through my research to increase exposure for the RoFo BIG TWIN (motorcycle-shaped) BevDisHeadgear beverage dispenser, I discovered Harley-Davidson replicated my 2003 RoFo BIG TWIN (motorcycle-shaped) BevDisHeadgear beverage dispenser (now called the RoFo MOTORCYCLE BevDisHeadgear beverage dispenser) design – even to the extent of duplicating my… MY originally designed detailed muffler system assemblage from the engine, lower handlebar, stylish saddle, luminous engine, real red gas tank and tachometer.

Because of my RoFo BIG TWIN (motorcycle-shaped) BevDisHeadgear beverage dispenser design… Harley-Davidson Motor Company presented a radically transformed 2004 Harley-Davidson Sportster; the 2004 Harley-Davidson XL 1200R Sportster 1200 Roadster. Place the images of the right side view of a 2004 Harley-Davidson XL 1200 Sportster, or a 2004 Harley-Davidson XL 1200R Sportster 1200 Roadster up against the right side view of a RoFo BIG TWIN (motorcycle-shaped) BevDisHeadgear beverage dispenser… the similarity is more than, more than beyond coincidental.

I left for a while to go grocery shopping; as I got back into my car… I decided to drive back to the Iron Horse Hotel to give Mr. Davidson my business card. I arrived at the hotel to find Mr. Davidson in the hotel’s souvenir room, I gave my business card. He remembered me, repeating… “You should fill that up with something.” Again, his grandson stood near him. I again reiterated to Mr. Davidson, “Willie, here’s my business card. And even if you are a real Son of a Bitch for stealing by 2003 motorcycle design… I can’t dislike you, or hate you… You’re too darn nice of a guy! You’re just too much of a nice guy!” (I replied, being diplomatic rather than being accusatory, belligerent, insulting, or considered combative. I ignored the over 11 ½ years of hatred for Harley Davison Motorcycle Company’s indiscretion of profiteering from the theft of my 2003 motorcycle design). “And besides… Us Artists need to keep it in the family. Goodbye Willie.” Mr. Davidson smiled, graciously took my card, I left without incident out of the Iron Horse Hotel.

At the end I discovered one Truth… A Person will be a person, and a Son of a Bitch (William G. "Willie G.", “Willie G. ‘The Weasel” Davidson) will be a (disreputable) Son of a Bitch (for upholding illegal, corrupt corporate practiced morals).

rofo Headgear Longhorn Bull Riding

It isn’t a Bull Fighting beverage dispenser, it’s a Bull Riding RODEO beverage dispenser.

Have a Hog-Killin' Time (American cowboy slang fer, “A real good time”) usin’ this crazy-cool head wearn beverage spittin’ contraption. American Artist RoFo (Pronounced RōFō, a.k.a. Randall Flann) has created the ultimate drinking device that bestows homage to the quintessential icon of the United States, the American Early West, the Cowboy, Aboriginal (The Inuit, the Métis and First Nations Indians) bull rider groups, Native/Indigenous rodeo groups. Additionally, North America and the First Nations rodeo athletes, the RoFo LONGHORN BULL (ROUGHSTOCK) RIDING RODEO BevDisHeadgear beverage dispenser.

Longhorn Code of Honor Logo

The number one image that symbolizes the United States of America is not a damn turkey, majestic bald eagle, or an over-fed; over sexed capitalistic American Couch Potato watchin’ Gridiron Football... the number one undisputed representation, crystallizing all that is the U.S.A.... is the American Cowboy Hat - that conjures thoughts of a bygone era of América’s pioneer strength and ingenuity. Bull Riding is a fierce, risky and rough sport called "The Most Dangerous Eight Seconds in Sports." America’s original Extreme Sport. ROUGHSTOCK is the American cowboy term for a bucking horse or bull in a rodeo.

American madcap Artist RoFo (Randall Flann) sculptured, replicating the most grueling and adrenaline-engorged 8 seconds sport in the world. The RoFo LONGHORN BULL (ROUGHSTOCK) RIDING RODEO BevDisHeadgear beverage dispenser is similar in appearance to a cattleman cowboy hat with a tall narrow crown, with a slightly curved brim, one parallel wide rectangle crease on the top crown and one parallel crease on each side. This most popular style head covering allows a cowboy to pull the hat down further to stay on in the wind and in the rain. Many bull riders prefer this particular style. The RoFo LONGHORN BULL (ROUGHSTOCK) RIDING RODEO BevDisHeadgear beverage dispenser replicates Rider and rank (American cowboy term for an especially hard-to-ride bull) Longhorn Bull in 1:32 Scale models. Measurements: 15⅜ length, 12⅝ width, by 7¼ heights.

The RoFo LONGHORN BULL (ROUGHSTOCK) RIDING RODEO BevDisHeadgear beverage dispenser’s container simulates a 100X beaver fur (beaver fur is quite oily, which helps to keep the rain out). Natural color: (color nearly white, like that of undyed fibers, hide, or yarn). North American, western-styled shovel brim with a cattleman or rodeo crown, with ornamentation belt buckle attached on the left side.

The RoFo LONGHORN BULL (ROUGHSTOCK) Hat and Spigot are light in color for customization to represent one’s favorite four cloven-hoofed Bovine Athlete, female/male rider, and to advertise a favorite rodeo celebrity, affiliation, or family name.

rofoheadgear bull riding

The RoFo LONGHORN BULL (ROUGHSTOCK) RIDING RODEO Motific spigot’s Plug duplicates a Roughstock Longhorn Bull in droppy (American cowboy term for a bull that kicks his back legs while his front legs are still off the ground) action. The RoFo LONGHORN BULL (ROUGHSTOCK) RIDING RODEO Motific spigot’s Tap replicates a cowboy bearing down using finesse to earn high scores by spurring, “riding the bull’s momentum”. One hand is bind through the bull rope directly over the bull’s spine, near the withers and back of the shoulders, avoiding going “into the well” (American cowboy term referring to a bull that throws a cowboy to the inside of a spin) during the adrenaline-gorged eight second ride. As for the longhorn bull... You’d be bucking too, if your mountain oysters had a flank strap or bucking strap lassoed firmly around’em. ‘Yeow!!’

A little of my background. As a child growing up in Oconomowoc (Native American named city), Wisconsin, I watched the most popular themed television broadcasts during the late 1950’s, early 1960’s... “Westerns”. Western movies depicted all the aspects of America’s early stages developing to the number one most powerful independent country to date.

The Rodeo Bull Rider earns AS MUCH respect, merits and acknowledgments equaling to that of all Police Women and Men, rofoheadgear bull riding Fire Women and Men, and Military’s Personal for continuous dedication, bravery and stamina. In addition, the RoFo LONGHORN BULL (ROUGHSTOCK) RIDING RODEO BevDisHeadgear beverage dispenser helps to satisfy an outlaw thirst.

The determination and courage of a human being (female or male) challenging the sheer strength and intuitive behavior of a bull is the theme for the RoFo LONGHORN BULL (ROUGHSTOCK) RIDING RODEO BevDisHeadgear beverage dispenser.

Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In

Because of Ruth Buzzi's appearance in the year 1999 film documentaryLaugh In by American, film director and producer Rick Sebak: A Hot Dog Program, I sent to her a RoFo HOT DOG Headgear prototype CD-Rom that was inspired because of her presence and the show's theme. Ruth was gracious to send me an autographed photograph of her. I am still amazed, and she is still a grand woman.

Harley-Davidson 100th Anniversary (Thursday, August 28 through Sunday, 31) 2003. Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Willie G. "The Weasel” Davidson... DIE, DIE, DIE!

Sunday, August 31, 2003, on the forth and final day of Harley-Davidson 100th Anniversary Celebration at Veteran's Park in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, I and 150,000 folks packed an outdoor stage without knowing who would perform. One of the mystery headliners turned out to be Elton John, hardly a rocking choice for a group that came to party. He's not American, certainly not very manly, and far from hard rock.Musician Elton John Sucked as a replacement performer at the Bikers’ event. During which a representative of the Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Company asked me for as much information and documents about my RoFo BIG TWIN MOTORCYCLE Headgear / RoFo MOTORCYCLEHarley rivet BevDisHeadgear beverage dispenser I had. A year and a half-later… Harley came out with a copycat version of a muffler and exhaust pipe system (Harley Davidson’s year 2004, Sportster XL 1200 Roadster) exactly as the one I first originally designed and fabricated years before. The Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Company between years 2004 through 2005 earned revenue over four billion dollars. My stolen creation contributed to Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Company’s profits. Shortly after, the Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Company both laid-off and fired hundreds, hundreds of their disposable and replaceable American employees.

I want to express my contempt for Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Company business ethics and methods to obtain new motorcycle designs, I purchased a 3" Living the Legend™ stainless steel rivet customized with my name and personal statement displayed on a Harley Davidson Museum Curved Steel Rivet Wall inMilwaukee, Wisconsin. C 82, or Row C, Column 82. My angst reads; "DAVIDSON STOLE MY 2003 CYCLE DESIGN RANDALL D. FLANN." To this day, I appreciate that my rivet remains a lasting part ofthe Harley-Davidson Museum.
