JFOUND: Ellsworth, Robert ‘Blitz’ [MC1983] interviewed



> Overkill’s Bobby Blitz: Adaptation + Reinvention Fuels Longevity; Singer Talks ‘The Grinding Wheel’ [Interview]
> By Full Metal Jackie February 13, 2017 10:26 AM

Overkill‘s Bobby Blitz was the latest guest on Full Metal Jackie’s weekend radio program discussing the thrasher’s new album, ‘The Grinding Wheel.’ The record is the 18th from the New Jersey icons and the frontman spoke about keeping their sound fresh with different dynamics, their work ethic, longevity, their punk influences and more. Check out the chat below.

*** begin quote ***

>> Bobby, another band called Overkill was part of the Los Angeles punk scene at the same time that your band was beginning on the East Coast. How aware were you of them and the L.A. punk scene in general?

>> Well of course we were aware of it. They released I think simultaneous or very close to our first release and I think there was confusion from both camps, people either the metalheads or the people in that L.A. punk scene. I actually remember the record and own it, it’s called The Triumph of the Will which came out in 1985 when our Feel the Fire [album] came out. We weren’t that close to the L.A. punk scene.

>> But I can tell you, we were very close to the New York punk scene. When I went to Manhattan college in the Bronx, I was a one train, subway ride away from getting down to The Village. Being able to walk on the hallowed ground of CBGBs, Great Gildersleeves, The Mud Club even existed at that point. Max’s of Kansas City. That is where a lot of our energetic inspiration came from. There were iconic bands from that era and area that existed whether it be The Ramones or I remember seeing Blondie on the street. Iggy Pop was living in New York. The Dead Boys came in from Cleveland and set up house in New York and I was also a big [New York] Dolls and Heartbreakers fan. So I think punk for sure influences this band, but I think it was more East Coast punk.

JFACEBOOK: Jablonski, Lou [MC1972] with more details on the Kidney Walk



When Peter Jablonski, son of Lou Jablonski , Business ’72, needed a kidney transplant, Peter’s aunt, Helen Jablonski, Business ’83 stepped up in true Jasper fashion and donated the gift of life to her nephew. The Jablonski family celebrates their good fortune by supporting the New York City Kidney Walk.
Here is our latest update:
Friends, Family, Colleagues,

First, I hope this finds you and your families well.
Second, THANK YOU.

This will be my last update before the New York City Kidney Walk. With only three days remaining before the Walk, I am pleased to report that we have raised nearly $30,000, to date. This is an incredible statement and one that the Jablonski Family does not take for granted. So many of you, ( in fact , several hundred of you ) have chosen to join us in our celebration of Peter’s good health and my sister Helen’s generosity and love. Transplants don’t happen without a donor.

My thanks to all of you for allowing me to spread the word and ask for your help. Through your generosity , we are among the top fund raising families in all of New York.

As always, we hope you consider joining us at the Walk on Sunday. If you can’t join us, then give us a thought on Sunday as we join with thousands of other who want to beat kidney disease.
Should you know of anyone who might want to join our ranks, please direct them to our team web page :

You are the best.

With best regards,

JFACEBOOK: Sola, Ray [MC1983] plays in zombie apocalypse movie

Between the coming of Halloween and election, the 2013 film, made in Prescott, AZ, has been released to the internet. If you did not get to see it at any of the screenings, now is your chance to watch it.

Plot Summary: It’s been over a year since the zombie apocalypse and the people of Crest Top, Arizona have gotten used to life with the shambling dead. But when zombies decide they want the right to vote, folks aren’t sure what to think. Congresswoman Serena Paltry sees a political opportunity and holds a press conference to officially endorse zombie candidate Blaine Walpole. Unfortunately, Serena forgets the first rule of living with the walking dead: never, ever turn your back on a zombie.

I appear in it at 5:47 and at 5:59 you can see my butt as I help subdue a crazy zombie.
