I saw it for the first time on a television yesterday at Cape Ann TV.  The women couldn’t tear themselves away from the set. 

The goal was to make a DVD which you could show people and blow them away with stuff that they have never seen before.  Especially cool are the mutant lobster and marine life videos on the larger screen. 

As a Christmas or Hanukah  present it’s a no-brainer.  Small size, easy wrapping, totally unique, totally Gloucester, easy shipping, perfect price point- $20.

This will be the perfect gift to have a couple wrapped and in the front hall closet for when those people stop buy with a present for you but you didn’t think to get them one- you have a couple Good Morning Gloucester DVDs all wrapped up in the closet and ready to go!

No brainer, right?

They will cost $20 for 1 Buy 5 and get 1 free, buy 10 and get two free.

I’ll put up a paypal link once I have them in my possession.

Huge thanks to Dan King for the background music for the DVD menu and The Joey C’s Gloucester at Dawn Slideshow, Adam Bolonsky and Sam Hartson’s Greasy Pole Footage and Beth Swan for Designing The DVD Artwork.






If you have a relative that has moved away, if you want to show something during Thanksgiving, if you want to try to explain Greasy Pole to friends that have never seen it- this is it.

New Face & Voice @ Kory Curcuru

Peter and Vicky Van Ness write-

Dear Joey,

Please allow me to introduce Kory Curcuru — a glosta boy who’s recently returned home from Australia and Hollywood, where he wrote comedy and produced DVD special features for all the major studios.  Here’s a picture of him at Sardo’s inBurbank.

Before he abandoned us in 2006 he wrote Gloucester’s funniest book, St. Peter’s Fiasco.  You can still get this spoof of the Perfect Storm at Stop & Shop’s dollar table and other fine establishments; and it’s complete with his famous Glostary for those trying to learn how we speak in our fair City.

He’s moved back, bought a house here and has nearly completed his second book about Gloucester.

Vickie and I are lucky enough to have known Kory for over a decade and ecstatic to be working with him now.

Kory is gimmesound’s new talking head.  You can see his 1 minute videos showcasing Gloucester’s thriving music scene every day beginning tomorrow (Friday 10/21) at

Check it out!

Rubber Duck Quick Tip: Orion Meteor Shower tonight

Rubber Duck: The Orionid Meteor Shower will be slamming into our path tonight. Best viewing is after midnight closer to dawn as the earth faces forward and gets a face full of ice chunks that Halley’s Comet left in our path. Weather maps say it will be clear.

Paul: But weather maps say it is clear over Cape Ann right now and all I see is big grey clouds at sunset.

Rubber Duck: They will clear out of here by midnight.

Paul: But that’s what you said about the Draconid  meteor shower and that was a total bust.

Rubber Duck: Don’t blame me, you’re the one talking to a bath toy.

Tiny Tugs At The Gloucester Maritime Heritage Center Photos From Cliff McCarthy

Hi Joey,

I don’t know what this was all about, stumbled upon it at the GMHC this afternoon.

There was a British film crew there filming from a tow boat.

Cliff, they were shooting an episode of the BBC hit show Three Men In A Boat.

Robert and Pamela Marcaurelle Represent

Robert and Pamela Marcaurelle from Ipswich representing at the Good Morning Gloucester Gallery.  Robert has been a friend of the blog for two years, and met Joey when he was manning the gate at the Shriner’s Auditorium in Wilmington and Joey was there to photograph the Boston Massacre Derby Girls.  He also works in the seafood business at Castle Hill Lobster Co.

As you can probably tell by the way they are dressed and the fact that the gallery is now closed, I am catching up.  Sorry Robert and Pamela for this taking so long, but better late than never.
