    Ate up some Nik-L-Nips and watched 'Monster Squad' with my nephew.


    aw yeah I picked up that movie not too long ago I love it.

    Saw it with a buddy when I was like 10 yrs old. 14 yrs ago.

    OH HELL YES

    I'm so stoked right now my Camp Candy Christmas VHS tape just came in, I can't believe it - its still sealed in its original shrink wrap.

    Just in time too, I got like two episodes left of Captain N that I need to watch. Here I'll scan it so you guys can see the box art.

    Well, I got the new Three Caballeros DVD, so I've been having fun with that. I also got Bill Cosby: Himself through Netflix today, so I'm gonna watch that later.

    Well, I just received my two Buy It Now items off of eBay which were a Ralph McQuarrie prototype Boba Fett Star Wars action figure and the Sega Genesis game, Virtual Pinball. I've also been trying to watch the entire Star Wars saga but in my busy day, by the time I actually have time to watch the movies, I'm too tired. Here's how bad it was: It took me a week to watch Episode I and after that it took me three days to watch Episode II, which I finished this morning. I might start Episode III today yet.

    Even though I still consider Episode III to be the best film of the new trilogy, I think I've come to the realization that I like Episode I more than Episode II even with Jar-Jar Binks and all his shenanigans. Which would now put me off on a tangent for my ranking of which Star Wars film I like the most:

    My top six (there are only six films):

    6. Star Wars Episode II: Attack Of The Clones
    5. Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace
    4. Star Wars Episode VI: Return Of The Jedi
    3. Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope
    2. Star Wars Episode III: Revenge Of The Sith
    1. Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back

    I guess I like Episode I more than Episode II for the fact that I like the Pod Racing, the Space Battles, and Darth Maul. Episode II is still a good film, but the attempt by George Lucas at romantic dialog is kind of awkward. Like I said before elsewhere I still like this movie because it is still Star Wars and for the fact that Jango Fett makes the movie and foreshadows his son's involvement in the next trilogy. Boba Fett is my boy!!

    Anyway, as far as everything else goes, I'm just trying to finish this semester at college as best as I can, continue working at the Winking Lizard, and just try to just enjoy day to day life.

    heh, good luck man, I'm sure you'll find it. There's this place called Play N Trade that sells tons of retro gaming gear, I'll probably pick one up myself. I never had a saturn.

    wow that's nice...

    u got one of them small records players...

    I recommend Crosley products if you like vintage record players, they make them in that style.

    My g/f got me a beautiful Crosley record/CD/Radio/Tape player, its all cherry wood with the vintage style speaker coverings and all that...

    that was the greatest Valentines present I have ever received, take notes ladies, my girl earned more cool points for getting me that than all of my X's ever had combined.

    That day I went and picked up 3 records - Alice Cooper, Led Zeppelin, and The Eagles


    This sounds awesome!!! I really need to get my hands on an inexpensive turntable and buy some Beatles, Pink Floyd, Queen, Aerosmith albums, and even a Bjork album or two (fairly rare because they were European releases).

    Dude another one of my Camp Candy movies came in, Comedy Capers, I watched about half of it on my lunch break today it rules. On top of that, over the weekend I picked up about 4 bag fulls of VHSs all with their respective covers, some of them were:

    School House Rock: Multiplication Rock (The 1987 VHS recording in great condition)

    Tom Hanks - Big, and That Thing You Do

    Flintstone Kids
    Speed Racer (still in original shrink wrap)
    Captain Planet
    Johnny Quest (The original)
    The first 3 episodes of Biker Mice from Mars on VHS
    The original Ricki Ticki Tavi
    3 tapes of Bucky O'Hare
    Tiny Toon Adventures: How I spent my summer Vacation

    I must got brain lock cuz I can't think of any more right now but I'll look at them again and list the rest a little later. The box art to Comedy Capers and another title that should be arriving soon is no-where to be found online so I'll post those for everyone to see when I get the one I'm still waiting for.

    BTW I know I said in another post that I got the C.O.P.S. complete series, I was mis-informed its just the first 22 episodes or whatever it is that comes in the available box set. Someone asked me about that... anyway what've you guys found lately.
