the collector

okay...

i mentioned in my post the other day that i've been cleaning things up around here, throwing things out, and setting some stuff aside for either a yard sale or ebay, that virtual yard sale. now i have never avoided the term "collector", at times i have used it myself, been quite proud of it...but holy crap! i mean...HOLY CRAP!

over the course of my crazy, complicated, cartoon-like life, i have acquired so much trivial, useless, and in some cases, forgotten stuff that i find myself surprised by some of the stuff i've come across! an arnold schwarzenegger as sgt. rock movie promo button from the '88 san diego convention! my copy of mouse guard #1 (first printing) that i put in a safe place ('cause of the off-size) that i then couldn't find for almost a year now! three bread wrappers from the 1960's featuring batman and robin and a bunch of villains--a couple that no one ever saw! a spider-man print given to me and autographed by stan and john romita that i completely forgot i had!
COMPLETELY FORGOT I HAD!!!





anyway, i've gotta go and get some more cleaing done, but i'll leave you with five for the weekend...

Ugh. Oh, next week.

the shark, the fox, the vulture, and mr. zero (obviously a mr. freeze prototype). i think that one or two of them were used in the daily comic strip.
i'll get the camera out and post close-ups so you can get a look at 'em!

1. what mad artist won fame and recognition for his tiny and hilarious pantomimes in the margins of the mag? Sergio Aragones, the World's Fastest Sketch Artist!

2. (i hate that new cat-look, but) what originally made rather human-looking hank mccoy gain his more beastial visage? While working for the Brand Corp. he came up with a concoction to increase his strength for brief periods but after failing to take the antidote soon enough the transformation was permenant

3. before he became the joker, what was his wife's name?

4. who was travis walton? John Boy's brother?

5. yellowstone national park is primarily located in what state? Nevada? Todd, you totally stole this from the 5th Grader show, too bad I didn't watch for the answer

You still have that Sgt. Rock button? I lost mine years ago, but I'm pretty sure I still have a couple of the Vibes postcards we picked up that year. And I just came across the Batman bread wrapper you gave me a little while ago. I love that you can always find the coolest stuff.

todd said...

really?!
you guys are drawing blanks on a lot of these questions. have i slid from trivia to minutiae? lemme know.

colin--yeah, i DID happen to be flippin' past that 5th grader show the other night--haven't watched any more than that one question. is it good?--and was amazed that so few people knew the answer. thought i'd throw it out here.

walt--i thought i had two of those sgt. rock buttons--can't find the other one. i still have about four of the square yellow batman movie ones though and only one vibes card left. oh, cyndi...

Walt said...

It scares me to think that I've been lugging those Vibes cards around for 19 years. Has it really been that long? Damn, I'm old.

Colin said...

Todd, the 5th Grader show is interesting to watch with other people and play along so you can mock each other's lack of basic knowledge. But as a show it's pretty lame and Jeff Foxworthy takes forever to get to the next question, which is why I flipped the channel and didn't see the Yellowstone answer.
