Off Topic / G I Jeff - Community parody of the Sunbow toon

Anyone catch this week's episode of "Community?"

I haven't laughed that hard at an episode of Community in a long time!

Off Topic / Anyone see Dragons Den last night?

There was a Toronto-based company called Shelf Life that is trying to become the ultimate in collectibles buy-sell-catalog websites.

Looks kinda like YoJoe Premium on steroids.  Not sure if I'll try it or not, but if I can pick up a few missing items there, why not?

For Sale or Trade / Blueprints etc

I picked up a large lot of 100+ (English) blueprints this week, but of them I only wanted about 1/3 of them.

I've still got to sort through them thoroughly, but of the lot, my list to dispose ranges from Armadillo to WartHog.

There were also a lot of other old order forms ranging from hooded CC to the wrist-bands and even the 82 Vehicle mail-in list.  There are a bunch of duplicates for most of it.  Again, still have to sort through all of it.

There are also several 82 - 84 product flyers, with 1-4 copies, depending on the flyer.

My preference would be to sell as a single lot.  I will post a detailed list once I've sorted through it all.

Is that something anyone would be interested in?

Off Topic / Happy birthday, Doctor Who!

For those Whovians amongst us, happy 50th to Doctor Who!

Did anyone watch "an adventure in space and time" last night?

A touching tribute to the first 3 years of the series.  A series created by a Canadian! :D  I gave it 2 Jellybabies up!
I lucked out and got tickets to see the 50th anniversary episode in the cinema.  Can't wait to see it!!!  (I just hope it stands up to all the expectations!)

...The Oktober Guard's vehicle from ARAH issue # 6 and 7?

Sadly the auction is ending in moments, and $50 shipping is outrageous.  But it would have been fun to fill it with the comic 3-pack OGs!

There's an image here for comparison:

Not quite perfect, but close enough.

Off Topic / Podcasts vs iOS 7
« on: September 21, 2013, 10:49:07 AM »
If you're a big fan of podcasts (I listen to 12+ hours of podcasts a week), avoid the iOS 7 upgrade.

They have completely disabled the iPod's music app's ability to play podcasts, and are forcing users to download a podcast app (preferably their own).

The Apple Podcast app sucks!

If you love your podcasts, and use smartlists or just listen to them in the regular music app, avoid iOS 7!

I saw a poster for this at a local comic store.  Hopefully there's some Joe there...

Finally got a Dr. Venom.  I wish it was a loose one though.

Now all I have to do is wait until my Kwinns come in from SJ, and my modern era (carded) Snake Eyes, Kwinn and Venom will be reunited.

That Jetfire/Skystriker is at the top of my WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANNNNNNNNNNNNNNTTTTTT list!

Anyone going?
