Celebrate Koopersmith's 14th NATIONAL SPLURGE DAY - June 18, 2008

DateLine: Tuesday, June 17, 2008

Chicago, IL: In 1994 when I conceptualized NATIONAL SPLURGE DAY ©1994, as one of my HOLIDATES TO CELEBRATE, the Thesis was that it was well over 2 months since Americans received their Tax Returns. Why not go out and splurge with this added Bonus. After all, you deserve(d) it. The Equinox would be arriving in 3 short Days and the Summer Season would be in Hot Pursuit on a variety of Fronts & ForeFronts.

A lot has occured in 14 years, to say the least. Of which, rising prices in every sphere have made Life (to the Common Man) literally and physically impossible to 'splurge with the same success rate' that he/she/they and/or I have been able to do in The 1990s and early 21ST Century.

However, there's no time like The Present. NATIONAL SPLURGE DAY ©1994 is celebrated every June 18TH. This is not to say that Prices will be escalated moreso in 2022 (in another 14 Years) but for the Principals of the Original NSD Documentation, the Urge to Splurge is as FUN-damental as they come.

Contest Winners of the NATIONAL SPLURGE DAY: 2008 Sweepstakes will be meeting at Oak Street Beach on Wednesday at Noon, at which time We will be 'splurging up a storm' by tackling The One Mag Mile during the Afternoon. After all, into everyone's life a Splurge should occur. And, there's no need to take off the tags. Things are returnable, you know. Film is forever.

For more Information on this HOLIDATE or any others as a total of 1,700+ (that fall into 39 specific categories) exist on my:

Koopersmith's International Skeptics' Days ©1995 takes a U-Turn.

Blog #62
DateLine: Friday, June 13, 2008

Then there was the Day I woke up so self-confident and self-assured, I bought Ten (10) One Dollar Lottery Tickets of the very same Set of Numbers. The Nightly Drawing for Friday, June 13TH stated $56 Million was up for Grabs for the Illinois Mega-Ball Game – a Bi-Weekly Bet-a-Thon that happens in the Heartland. I felt 'grabby,' not crabby and thought I’d ‘try’ my Luck. That was Sign #1. After all, my next Big Birthday Bash is going to be celebrated in 56 more Days on August 9TH. Strategically, I marked the numbers:

8, 9, 17, 52, 55
with the Mega Ball as 40

for my Lucky Picks.

Who would I share this 10-Way Diversion with? That Allotment could process many Dreams.

ANSWER: Well, let's see. At this Age, there have been Aliases, Non de Plumes, Secret Admirers and Imaginary Characters that have shared a Host of Trials + Tribulations (as well as Highlights & Spotlights) with me - no matter what the pre-conditions were.

Their Grand Payoff would, indeed, surprise them because Generosity & Charity do begin at 'Home' as the Stroll to the Bank gets underway.

Sign #2: What could be more cosmic than Winning The Lottery on Friday, the 13TH, a Date I helped to immortalize in the late 1900s - circa 1995 to be exact -- with my Creation of:


some 13 years ago. You do not have to be skeptical or superstitious to gamble or play The Lotto. It's merely a matter of Personal Choice, Finances, Time and Riskola ® that are Four (4) Key Elements that affect our Days, every Day.

As for my Contemporary and Current Comments on the Topic and Subject Matter of Skepticism (that I am often asked about in International Radio Interviews which include VOA: Voice of America) and how I have spiritedly grown the last 13 Years which amounted to 42 International Skeptics' Days (as it is a Floating Holidate) to date:

Well, it's like this: “The older a Person grows, the more reluctant s/he is to feel about the Changes 'change' make. Skepticism grows proportionately after Age 5 and significantly increases as the Years on The Planet fade or quickly decrease. The Tables turn. Cynicism lurks at the ForeFront, becoming Skepticisms’ Bed-Mate.”

Founder: International Skeptics Day ©1995
Friday, June 13, 2008 – 12:30 PM


Sharing that Mega Loot with the Assortment of Aliases I've encountered the last 55 years seems ’The Write' Thing to do - as well as an Eventological Rite of Passage for creating and promoting a Topical Event as this. Spreading the Wealth takes the overbearing Burden from the Science of Skepticism.

RE: "There's no Lead in these TOYS!" ©2007 Dateline: Monday, November 5, 2007

Update: Monday, July 7, 2008

Chicago, Illinois USA: Well, there you have it. Global Warming. At this critical Point in our Collective History, it evidently is here to stay. Even if you don't really label the Phenomena as 'Global Warming,' the Earth hardly compares to what it was when I was GUK: Growing Up Koopersmith in Mendota, Illinois (a small Farming Community 100 miles southwest of Chicago) back in the 1950s and 1960s.

Having just turned 55 in August, 2007, I've seen a lot of Action* happen within the last: 19,810 days (to date).

I've downed 59,990+ Meals (most of which were ‘happy’);

My Heart has beaten 2,295,640,080+ times (thank Goodness!)

I've methodically blinked over 265,651,140 times, without Interruption or Delay.

For this Period, my Sleeping Time ranks as: 6,947+ Hours or 992-3/7 Weeks which is 17-2/13 Years, comprising slightly one-third of my Age.

Throughout this Parcel of Time, I have noticed and noted Issues pertaining to The Planet that show it decaying away at incredible speeds. The Guinness Book of World Records Registry would shutter at these Accounts.

BEFORE OUR VERY EYES: To partially paraphrase Richey Cunningham: Those were "The Happier Days" when Four (4) distinct Seasons abounded. We knew April Showers would bring May Flowers (and ‘The Mayflower’ brought The Pilgrims, of course). The intolerable and sweltering Heat Index was non-existent and no brutally Cold Index would report Temperatures that felt sub-Arctic on the Open Flesh. Nor did We experience such terrifically forceful Winds or continual seismic Blasts of Tornados, Tsunamis and/or Hurricanes or had Episodes when entire neighboring States caught-on-fire while others were completely flooded while still others were as dry as a bone.

My Family (minus my Brother, Joe who opted to 'stay home alone') rode out Hurricane Camille that struck the City of New Orleans on Sunday, August 17, 1969. Since that Natural Phenomena happened, I truly appreciate(d) each Day for itself, no matter if it was not a National Holiday with a Day off from Work, with Pay included. This Event later turned into the Basis of my original Literary Creations called:

The ART of EVENT-Making
ADRIENNE SIOUX KOOPERSMITH's Campaigns For Humanity ©1990

that contains a Bounty of 1,700+ HOLIDATES TO CELEBRATE which commenced on Wednesday, July 25, 1990 at 9:45 PM. TO FOLLOW SUIT: Because The Environment is radically changing all Aspects of Our Lives, We must adapt to its ‘Nature’ or perish as a Civilization. Doing our Parts on a daily Basis to:


is what We have to do in order TO SAVE those Creatures whose very Lives are threatened, including ourselves.

Startling as it may be written in Words: "I would not be surprised to some day learn that Mankind himself is on The Endangered Species List with the Damages already occurring on our Planet. Some Individuals argue: “It’s too little – too late.”

"MY POA: PLAN OF ACTION: I'm not a Scientist. I'm not a Teacher. I'm not affiliated with a(ny) Major Corporation. Probably ranking more as an ardent and dedicated Creative Idealist, what I do is exercise by walking and/or biking around Chicago carrying a terrific Symbol -- an Icon -- that exemplifies The Global Crisis. Armed with a 24.5" tall TOY FROG with a contagious 11" Smile who I have cleverly named: GORF (which is FROG spelled back-words), every Day since Friday, January 28, 2005, I proudly stroll around Chicago (now referred to as):


with GORF in tow. People pass-by and look. Others (who are curious) approach and ask me about him.** Since Human Attention Spans are as fleeting as Time itself, at this Pivotal Point (since I have gained their undivided Attention), this Golden Opportunity allows me to gently remind these select Individuals about THE GREEN MOVEMENT.

As a Species who is 217,000,000 years old, THE FROG (now fondly represented by GORF) is tantamount in assisting me in SAVING THE PLANET: Our Only Home. Sometimes, all it takes is an 'Alert' in order to go on to the next Step, once given the GREEN LIGHT to proceed." REACTIONS RECORDED: "No one yet has argued that Point. Most Folks make significant and/or interesting Comments about THE GREEN MOVEMENT and admire GORF's immense Smile. Others say what an eye-catching TOY he assuredly is with that Mass Appeal Animal Magnetism fully set in place. Business Men, Mothers, Children, Homeless People, Tourists, Teens and Grandparents have all remarked and expressed their Opinion about GORF. His Popularity in The Polls rates as #1."

TO MARKET: TO MARKET: These People suddenly get excited about my GORFIAN Marketing Strategies and see the absolute Relevance in its Structure. Once Strangers, they now become Friends. Marketing Experts term this Concept as Guerrilla Marketing. I prefer re-labeling it as:

GORF-ILLA Marketing ®.

"The FROG is the perfect Species," Adrienne explains. "He has been on The Planet for the last 217,000,000 years – even outliving the Mighty Dinosaur, yet it is our Generation that is killing him off and driving him and many other Species into the Black Hole of Extinction. Extinction is final. Extinction is forever. We should be so ashamed of our Selves with our frivolous, greedy and wasteful Ways. The terrifying Part is that this is happening within our Lifetime and right before our very Eyes. Face it: We're all on an Endangered Species and it's High Time We reverse The Devastation (if We can). 'Later' is now at Our Doorstep.

After all: To generate more interest in ATG: All Things Green, GORF is the selected and designated Mascot that heads all of my GREEN Pursuits as well as 1,700+ EVENTOLOGICAL HOLIDATES ®. There are invaluable Lessons to be learned from THE FROG, yet it is Our Generation that is killing them off in record numbers and driving many others into the Void of Extinction." Because GORF is a 'Wake-Up Call to GO GREEN,' his Hierarchy of Titles include:

‘Chicago's First Green Mascot’
‘Illinois' Foremost Goodwill Green Toy Ambassador’
‘America's Greenest Mascot’
‘Mankind's Most Beloved Toy’
‘Nature’s Greenest Creature’&
‘The Icon of The Green Movement’

With Annual Sales bustling at $22 Billion, the TOY Industry rocks The Planet. People of all Ages create, manufacture, distribute, play with, save, collect, sell, resell, buy, gift and regift TOYS. Early TOY Images were drawn on Neanderthal Limestone Walls and later depicted in Egyptian Hieroglyphics. To keep astride of The Excitement perpetuated by Fine TOYS, because I was proclaimed as:

'America's Premier Eventologist'
by Gene Koprowski of Insight Magazine (Washington, DC) in August, 1997


'The Premier Eventologist in the History of the World'
by Eric Zorn of The Chicago Tribune (Chicago, IL) in January, 2001

I 'writefully' decided that a multi-level and multi-faceted continuous HOLIDATE® needed to be created that addresses Global Warming completely and engrains THE GREEN MOVEMENT into The People’s Conscience.

Therefore, I established: 2006-2016 as:


"I should add also that this is merely a Grassroots Endeavor on my Part. I receive no Funding or Grants from any Arts' Programs. I have no Sponsors. All Expenses are paid strictly out of my own Pocket. I have no Publisher for any of the Publications or Literature. The Compositions total 1,800+ Pages with over 500 superb Photographs, (renamed as: photoGORFs). I have no Advertising Budget. To date, I have self-produced 13 Original Prototype Books about GORF since Friday, January 28, 2005. GORF's Summer of 2007 Releases deal directly with Ecology and are cleverly called:

50 Ways to Leave Your Water or Like a Frog Takes to Water ©2007


GORF's Toothbrush & Toothpaste Challenge: 2007. (which appertains to how We can save Water by better brushing our Teeth). Droughts are plaguing our Planet. Seas are drying up before our very Eyes. This is one more Process in which every Man, Woman & Child can actively and gladly participate in for the betterment of 'The Whole' without having your Pearly Whites suffer one single Drop.”

@ GORF Werks Central:

Two other cuddly and irresistible TOYS recently joined GORF in turning Attention to helping The Environment. PANZEE measures the Size of a real Baby Chimpanzee and made her NBC-Chicago Channel 5 Appearance on Monday, November 5TH.

Amber is a Vervet Tree Monkey TOY (measuring 27.5” long from head to toe with a 15.5” tail; 14.75” Legs with Arms stretching of 10”). She is silver gray with a mass of mink-brown facial fur. Her hands, feet and ‘skull cap’ fur are also dark brown. Her long eyelashes offset a pair of golden, sultry Amber Eyes, thus her Name.

Because One-Third of all Primates are now on the Endangered Species List, I realize that TOYS appeal and immediately capture an Audience's Attention, thus easily implanting and imparting a SEED OF CONSCIOUS GREENNESS ® into their Minds that can later be cultivated.

"GORF, Amber & PANZEE (THE GAP) have their Work cut out for them."

Subscribe to GORF's Green-Weekly Messages. Each GORFism ® is accompanied by a PHOTOGORF of The Frog-In-Action, who (by the way) is Part of an entire Family of 5 Frog TOYS, namely: GORF GORF's BODY DOUBLE Pink, Ming & TurQ. The Launch of GORF's Green-Weekly Messages is especially meritorious as 2008 begins Year #3 of GORF's 10 Year Ecology Campaign called:

THE DECADE OF THE FROG with GORF officiating

the Brainstorm and Concept of which coincides with his earlier Quote GORFISM ® Series.

THINK ABOUT YOUR NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS YEAR-ROUND: There is no better Time than 'The Present.' One of the best Presents you can give yourself, Family, Friends, Neighbors, Co-Workers and/or Associates is 'The Gift of Biking.' Not being too athletic, Bike Riding is the only Sport I thoroughly enjoy. Coasting is a 'breeze.' Breaking for a lost wallet or cell-phone will make you into an instant hero or shero. Although I rode extensively as a Child and across Campus in my Younger Adult Years, it wasn't until Tuesday, February 25, 1997, that I seriously began riding in order to:

- Exercise and get healthy(ier)

- Get to my Destination quicker and on Time

- Save Money on Bus, Train & Taxi Fares

- Cycle into Neighborhoods that Public Transportation did not have access to


- Prove I could become Part of this 'Elite' devoted Mix.

No matter what the Weather Conditions are, because of My Diligence, I have stoically taken Four (4) Inches of Baby Flab ‘n Fat from my Thighs and turning it into Muscle via this regular Routine, which equates to peddling One (1) Hour a Day or only 4.16% of your total Day's Activities. This is a small Price to pay for Optimal Health. Furthermore, I have never driven a Motor Vehicle since I moved to Chicago in May of 1974, thus keeping my Intake or Consumption of Petroleum to a near Zero Level and my Carbon Footprint extremely low.

Undoubtedly, the Top Benefit of Biking (that I did not realize before pursuing it) is that I now have no Guilt whatsoever when I eat or snack. The persistent and conscientious Daily Exercise Biking affords its Aficionados keeps me (personally) slim, trim and as fit as a fiddle. This ultimately leads to great Peace of Mind, which, of course, leads to more Creative and Pioneering Visions for GORF GOING GREEN ®.

GORF-O-METRICS ® is a Two-Prong Term I have launched for this Cycling Process (which is a Cycle in and of itself). One of my Book's Names that details the positive Affects of Bicycling (no matter what your Age) is also called:


WASTE NOT – WANT NOT: My Theory all boils down to:

"A Woman's got to do what a Woman's wants done correctly."
Friday, November 9, 2007 – 8:48 AM CST

Having a Set of Jovial TOYS possessing such unfound and unwarranted 'Animal Magnetism' combined with a non-stop Imagination that focuses on the Preservation and Survival of Humanity & all Earthly Creatures, it's not hard to GORF Day-in and Day-out. This is why GORF's nickname: THE GRIN REAPER ®. fits him so well.

“YOU CAN BE RESOURCEFUL, TOO: Setting an Example in Greenhood ®”
Friday, November 9, 2007 – 1:09 PM CST

My self-imposed Job to SAVE THE ENVIRONMENT and pinpoint Strangers 'on the Street' to inform and help is quite simple and elementary, yet heroic. I walk, stroll and/or bike around Chicago with GORF and my trusty Camera in tow. I have been doing this since I purchased THE TOY on January 28, 2005. Completely mesmerized by his 'captivating Look,' this Character has attended major and minor Art, Cultural & Social Events/Festivals in 'The Windy City' and many Occasions out-of-state.

His Appeal automatically halts People in their Paths as they quizzically wonder why 'a Grown Woman' (as I am 55 now) is carrying a large, plush over-sized, whimsically colorful TOY Frog. Kevin Bacon's 6 Degrees of Separation quickly slips away as GORF becomes someone they remember by Name when I cordially explain "GORF is FROG spelled back-words." These Folks light-up and laugh. Curiosity peaks many People's interest in this whimsically amusing Sight. They will stop me. Others have even run after me. No matter what their Query is, I simply say that: "I probably would not be talking to you if you had not stopped to ask me about THE FROG."

At that precise Moment, their Mood lifts, a Smile and/or Laugh ensues. This One-Liner breaks ‘The proverbial Ice’ and a meaningful Conversation pursues for any Amount of Time that would not have occurred had I not been carrying THE FROG. In a Big City where Indifference runs high, this Methodology, you must admit, is ingenious. GORF (as an Ice Breaker) gains The Masses' Attention and greatly assists me in promoting THE GREEN MOVEMENT to People who may not be 'totally GREEN' yet. After all, We collectively can assiduously make the Planet GREENER, safer and healthier. It's our Responsibility.

THE ROOTS: In the early 1990s, I founded CARTOONISTS AGAINST CRIME ©1991 after I was assaulted, robbed and left-for-dead in the lobby of my apartment building. That Artistic Campaign later segued into CARTOONISTS AGAINST TERRORISM ©2001 after Terrorism struck American Shores. Now, my primary Concern is the unsparing Natural Disasters wreaked by what Global Warming is capable of generating for us and Future Generations whether We are categorized as Terrorists or Saints; Flora or Fauna.

Therefore, given all The Facts and Results,
GORF is,
the ideal Icon for THE GREEN MOVEMENT.

ADDITIONS INCLUDE: Since January 28, 2005, 13 Prototype Books have been written about GORF. GORF has 11 enticing and worthy Campaigns that he conducts of which Ecology, the Environment & Nature are his major Concerns. Exercising (via The Bike), Reading and Eye Care (so you don't get Big Red Eyes like THE FROG) are Three (3) others. Thirteen (13) ECO-HOLIDATES (beginning in 1994) derived from my EVENTOLOGICAL Calendrical Writings (which number 1,700) are now geared for GORF's GREEN MOVEMENT.

In other words:

"ASK not what your Planet can do for you, ASK what you can do for your Planet."

Bee Movie Returns to Chicago 31 more Times!

KOOPERSMITHin Blog #59 since November, 2007

How to make BEE Movie into the Healthiest Addiction you’ve ever had or needed.

Dateline: Friday, June 6, 2008

Co-Written with: Klancy Perkins
Assistant to: ASK: Adrienne Sioux Koopersmith

Nobody does ‘Chicago better’ than Mayor Richard M. Daley.
Nobody does ‘Movies better’ than Steven Spielberg.
Nobody does ‘Comedy better’* than Jerry Seinfeld.

With those Three (3) Conclusions firmly established, the 2008 MOVIES IN THE PARKS SUMMER SERIES will feature a Selection of Pop Culture Outdoor Flicks for Chicagoans, Suburbanites and Tourists that are FREE and BEE-gin at Dusk in 159 Locations (on Park District Turf & Territory).

My favorite Movies (BEE-sides BEE Movie) are the older Entries of:

BambiThe Wizard of Oz
Babe The Pig &
Forrest Gump

BEE MOVIE (released in October, 2007) will be featured, run and rerun at all of these Park Districts (conveniently located in Chicago and accessible by Rapid Transit (ie: CTA or Bus). This is an ideal Way to make positively sure you really travel the Distance by GOING GREEN and saving on Gas and Parking Expenditures.

ONE WOMAN’s INTERPRETATION: Viewing of Jerry Seinfeld’s BEE Movie will now zoom back to The Days of the once-popular, quaintly old-fashioned Outdoor Drive-In Make-out Movie Theatres of the Mid-1900s, that other Century where many of us were born and raised. This Impression has the Potential to leave the Viewer with a much different Vantage Point than if he/she/they were encased in an air-conditioned deluxe Movie Theatre Complex.

After all, ‘BEE-ing out in Nature’ where THE BEES actually live, call ‘Home’ and cross-pollinate will give The Viewer more of an authentic Feel to what is happening on the Golden Honey Screen. To elaborate, it’s more of a BEE’s Eye View than previous Accounts reveal.

The Dates of BEE MOVIE (as a collective whole) all BEE-gin on:

Friday, June 6 at Hale Park – 6258 West 62ND Street

Thursday, June 12 at Piotrowski Park – 4247 West 31ST Street

What a BEE Blast those Shows will BEE! Getting down and numerical: “31 is a Prime Number and BEE Movie is a Prime Production.” How many People will attend for the Summer Season has not been hypothesized yet nor how many Fans will return a ‘dozen’ times, at least, but Seat Counts are expected to be taken and that Figure should be available in the early Autumn, upon BEE Movie’s First Anniversary.


Hey, Chicagoans, why not host an entire BEE-op-alooza ® and dress up in Shades of Yellow and Black (in Spanish and French, it’s known as Amarillo & Noir) Stripes for the Event(s). ASK will BEE there with GORF, ‘Chicago’s First Green Mascot’ dressed as BEES as they did for the Movie’s Chicago Premier on Monday, October 1, 2007 along with another one of ASK’s prized TOYS, ET who was dressed in a Puppy’s Halloween Costume of a BEE, transforming him into a bonafide:


Yes, it did appear that ET had returned to EarTh (once again so many Decades later) for another Spielberg Film and to revisit those he left BEE-hind. Or as Punsters would ask: Is that Spiel-BEE-rg?

This Event (which headlined Jerry himself) was all captured by Entertainment Columnist and Radio/TV Personality, Bill Zwecker of The Chicago Sun-Times who (before Seinfeld’s Appearance) spoke to ASK & photographed her with GORF & ET-BEE at her Side for his Celebrity Column-Watch that appeared on Tuesday, October 2, 2007.

Now in Round 2, The BEE-Movement continues to cast its Charm towards new Viewers and delighting its former Fans.

[Bearing (BEE-ring) in mind Chicago is the 4TH Greenest US City]

After all, the Underlying Theme of BEE Movie is ‘if BEES were to disappear so would Our Planet, our only Home.” BEES are that vital and an integral Part of our Linkup to all other Creatures and the Eco-System. Destroying them means Suicide + Extinction.

GORF’s ribbiting Battle Cry is:
“Go Green, Black & Yellow”

NOTE: Other noteworthy Spielberg Movies for this Reeling Series include:

Shrek The Third
ET, The ExtraTerrestrial and

The Series runs through Saturday, August 30, 2008.

IT’s ALL THE BUZZ: Rumor has it that all 3 Dynamos (The Mayor, Steven & Jerry) will appear, pose and autograph Pix during The Intermission. Make it your Mission to take your Family and/or a ‘Honey’ of a Date to these Drive-In-Chicago-Style Flicks this Summer.

To clarify, that was My BEE-rogative (defined as: an intelligent Prerogative based in perfect BEE-ese, the Language of BEES). Because it’s such a great Marketing Idea + Photo Opportunity, you’ll often find these kind of Misperceptions online as Bloggers are aptly entitled to that Bout of Creative Exile or Slant. It could make News, newsier, as well as increasing the Blog’s Word Count significantly.

In case it rains or storms on the designated Evening that BEE Movie appears, don’t fret! BEES are grounded and naturally do not fly in Cloudbursts, but according to City Politics, some Parks will move their Films indoors if nasty Weather prevails.

Part of this Series can BEE contributed to PARKWAYS FOUNDATION. This Organization assists the Chicago Park District in “DREAMING BIG” through private yet generous Funding; thereby making a beneficial Influence on City Parks & Recreational Programs in The Windy City. Contact them directly at:

BEE there.


“Stand-up (Pun intended), grab your Blankets, Mosquito Spray, Picnic Baskets (loaded up with Honey and Honey Cake) and head on out. After all, the more Times you see BEE MOVIE, the more you realize how relevant (as well as entertaining) it is Today to our World’s Survival. For Outdoor Fun throughout The Summer in The City, it doesn’t get any BEE-tter than this!”

EDITORIAL NOTE: Reflecting on the Third Opening Sentence.
We could also substitute the Word: ‘Funnier’ in this particular Spot, but for the Purposes of Flow, ‘better’ was left in instead.
