Bill "Mo" Buckbee is a State Representative from and for New Milford, CT. It's just about time for the public to vote and Bill didn't want to leave re-election to chance, so he brought out the big guns. Buckbee got the famed filmmaker Myke "Foo Media" Furhman, Mayor Pete Bass and headed to some of the most iconic New Milford locations to shoot a film for the ages.

The message is clear here, Buckbee > Superman. You're taking off the Superman duds to get into the New Milford version, of the "fear the beard" campaign t-shirt. I give it two thumbs up, five stars, a 10-out-of-10, a bravo and a brava.

But one signal is coming through louder than any other when I watch this video, BEARDS. I don't think you have to have a beard to get elected in New Milford, but it certainly wouldn't hurt. I love that both Mayor Bass and Representative Buckbee are so confident in their abilities, that they can get on-screen looking like they are competing in a corn shucking contest.

If you have any questions, criticisms, or are seriously offended, please refer to the options below. Feel free to choose between options 1-5, and consider it a reply from the author.

1 - Corn shucking contests are real.

2 - Lighten up, we're friends.

3 - I wish my beard was as stout as theirs.


5 - Phil Collins

Danbury Resident Has Astonishing Close Encounter With Famous Moose

His name is Daryl Pitman, and he's a Danbury resident who recently had a super-close encounter with a moose that has become famous in the Greater-Danbury area. In the past few days this moose has been seen in multiple Danbury locations, it's been seen in Newtown, New Fairfield, Woodbury and even Pawling, NY to name a few. 

I saw Daryl's pictures in a different moose related thread and reached out to him. I asked him to tell me more. I wanted to know if these photos were real? Did he take the pictures? Was this in Danbury? When was this? How did he feel. An excited Daryl got back to me with the following responses.
