Day One Dorfus Adventure!
THAT’S ME … Jonathan Andrew McDorfus… IN 1983 Greydon Clark cast me in Joysticks. This 1980’s Classic I actually saw at the Palmdale Drive Inn when it was released. Time Magazine’s review said, “The best way to describe this film is the character played by Jim Greenleaf when he not playing his joystick he’s letting wind.”
This Movie took us thirteen days to create. The first week in release it was the fifth highest grossing film of that week. Dubbed a cult movie of the 80’s because it was a microcosm of the arcade world where the youth of towns and cities across america grow-up.
I want to thank some twenty-eight years all the followers, from Facebook to Youtube, who have shared with me their fondness for my work in this film. All I can say is, “DORFUS MANEUVER!” as I raise my arm and leg to you. Hope to see you at California Extreme 2010. Saturday night there will be a showing of “JOYSTICKS” followed by a Q&A.
My hat is off to Jeri Ellsworth and her team for pulling this together. Greydon Clark and I will be a booth to take pictures sign autographs and something very special will also be there…(can’t tell ya…you’ll just have to be there.)

Palmdale, CA 06.26.2010 JG – As I cruised down the 14 Freeway at dust the Full-moon spotted me. The cool blue globe smiled at me and winked in the warm summer eve. I knew tonight would be something special. I had no idea how special, but, the closer I got to Butler’s Coffee house the more I sensed I better make the most out of this experience.
Walking into the local beanery the smell of freshly drew java and the sound of a band in the midst of a sound check transported me into the past. It was a much simpler time, at least in my world, I found myself wrapped in the innocence of a dive coffee house of the 1960’s.
I heard her say, “Where’s my drummer?” Looking to the stage wearing a guitar like a best friend was Tracy Newman. The glow around her emanated a comfort that she was in her world, no longer a high powered Emmy Award winning Producer for the last 20 years, rather a young soul eager to share her written word through music with the help of her band The Reinforcements.
Pam, the owner of this wonderful venue known as Butler’s Coffee House, had given a heads up to Tracy that I wanted to interview her for our local social network ilivetodayav. Armed with only my MacBook Pro I walked over to Tracy. “Tracy, I’m Jim Greenleaf…” before I could say anything else she reached and grabbed my hand, and with a warm smile she offered “Hi, Jim where do you want to do the interview?” I instantly felt a connection with this true spirit of a person and my job was to find it.
Tracy got a cup of coffee and we sat down at a small table in the middle of the room and I fired up my laptop . My MacBook Pro has become my plait. Not only will I capture the interview but also her performance will be itched into it’s memory. In the midst of this interview Katy Moffatt walked back into Tracy’s life and into mine for the first time.
This is what followed:
I left this nights sojourn with tears in my heart. Tracy and Katy gave this old man a renewed spirit for the cause for which they live each day creating art where ever they trek. In honor of what they shared so freely I am bound to spread this to those that will listen .
Combining the old with the new creating a time capsule that will live forever on this highway we call the Internet. I hope this Cloud goes viral and touches many hearts as it did mine.
Thank you Tracy Newman and Katy Moffatt
