shirts printing, posters shipping. the hustle and bustle of december begins.
- symmetry of wes anderson
- so many iguanas. like little dinosaurs.
- interesting goonie related item, baby sloth taking a bath. he aged weirdly.
- life of a 98 year old. my grandpa's 92.
- snoop doggone it. pencil weirdness.
- star wargs. hopefully we find out what happened to boss nass. and did luke ever settle down and marry that tauntaun? geez, so many questions.

lotta g.i.joe offers. some a bit more outta my range than others. i mean, sarah would not be happy if i bid on this. but we'll get there. just to kinda put it in perspective, they do come up now and again for sale, i don't mind people shooting for the stars but please don't be offended if i pass on your offer. appreciate all the offers though, keep em coming.

any old g.i.joe collectors out there? i'm looking to rebuild my collection, sadly lost a few years back, gone to the sands of time. only the years 1982 through 1988. if you've got some that you're no longer into, lemme know. i'm not really looking for the 'i'll trade you Xamot for a Robocop poster' type of deals. obviously at that point i could just sell something of mine and buy xamot and tomax both.

but if someones sitting on a few old joes and wants to trade for a handbill, or a bunch for a poster, that kinda deal is what i'm looking for. your castaways for mine. guns and accessories, not quite as big of deal, i'm looking mainly for the figures. don't have to be in the box obviously. and again, not wanting to open up the whole can of 'I got some MASK figures if you're interested' worms either. lets keep it joe-only, 82 thru 88.

another poster sale come and gone. i've talked about why i sell prints via the lotto before, so i won't go into it again. but if you didn't get a poster, its thanksgiving week, enjoy this time with your loved ones and don't sweat the small stuff. its only a poster. if you missed this one, we'll have another one down the road. as you know, posters are kinda my babies.

til then, stay weird. ok, not that weird. medium weird. ok, slightly happy weird. perfect.

ps. last chance to pick up one of these shirts, presale ends tomorrow.

captains log 0047: goonies poster sale

update #3: 2nd round of emails have gone out. several refunds have happened, according to sarah, people entering twice, or purchasing without being picked.  that pretty well wraps it up, thanks once again.

so the goonies poster sale lotto is up, here is the info. you should be getting an email from me if you're on my mailing list, its going out now.

watch this space for any additional info, if you're worried. i wouldn't worry though, should go smoothly. i will stop worrying about it now. ok NOW. ok NOW. five minutes. tomorrow.

so, couple of things. i added a 4XL and 5XL design to the shirt sale. if you bought a different size previously and would like to upgrade, let me know and i'll refund your previous order.

secondly, i'd like to auction off a print for a charity thing, high bidder wins. i could just say 'email me your bids'. i could have people post their bids in the comments. ideally i guess i'm looking for something less ebayish. recommendations in the comments.

other than that, its a holiday week, so sit back, relax and enjoy the melodies.
- get a horse. so great. classic mickey.
- space exploration: pushing boundaries.
- i'm never eating skittles again. or reeses.

so far, i don't have my goonies prints, so i am still unsure when my copies go up for sale. once i get em, things will be set in motion. til then....
- bartkira. what a legacy.
- a very murray christmas. kinda an old school vibe to this. seems like it should have a muppet. kinda a scrooged vibe to it? fingers crossed.
- prometheus 2 mild news. interesting to hear what happens to shaw.
- pac rim effects breakdown. this movie has kinda won me over upon repeat viewings. i wasn't on board initially, but i enjoy it now quite a bit.
- another print i donated is up for sale on the ol ebay, all proceeds going towards a good cause.

thinking about getting some shirts printed up. if you have a moment to cast a vote on tshirt preference, i'd be in yer debt.
(in the survey i mixed up the two descriptions, American Apparel is typically thin, 50/50 is thicker)

- more prometheus news. sir ridley scott is not getting any younger, makes me nervous.
- red vs yellow. humorous, though it goes both ways, i know.
- biker scout segway. yep.

remembering our veterans today. my dogs and cats salute you. ho ho. special thanks to my dad and my grandpa who both served. my other grandpa served as well, i still dream about him, 10 years later. my favorite kind of dreams.

- writer behind prometheus explains prometheus. no bones about it, i was a huge fan. i know some people weren't. but to me, it was perfect. DON'T MAKE ME DISABLE THE COMMENTS AGAIN.
- this guy. he gets it. he did a corn one that was so true as well. here it is. funny.

damaged posters...come back to me, my children, yessss.....honestly the idea of making people cut up posters and send pictures as proof weirds me out, ha. i like damaged prints, they make nice christmas gifts. or bribes for potential employers. but we are working on a new poster packing process that should fix all our problems.

while sarah's working on returns, if you participated in the handbill madness awhile back and have yet to receive a print, lemme know. more than likely, it'll involve refunds on my part, since i ain't made of handbills!

til then, cheers, big ears.
- smoosh the world
- once more, with marty
