I always feel bad because I want to contribute here more and visit more often. But with 2 jobs, training, starting a new business, working on 2 hobby writing projects and also trying to get 8 hrs. of sleep, it's always a challenge.

No reason to feel bad about sparse visiting with a workload like that!  :)

Ok, we're back to this. I see that people are on this site all the time. Why don't you guys post something...anything. There must be an interesting movie you've seen or a great album you listened to. Maybe you saw an interesting figure or poster somewhere. Maybe, I really get on your nerves. Share. Even if it's an infected toenail, we want to know.

No photos, please!!!

I bought a couple of things, lately. A Creature enamel pin from Mondo, which should be out this month. Another Creature pin from Fright Rags and a 12" embroidered Creature patch from Rock Rebel, both of which are on their way. Also this digest size book/mag about digest size books/mags called "The Digest Enthusiast" (#10). It has some nice original cover art and an article about the Creature in digest publications (like "Mechanix Illus." May '54).

 I really love those pins. Are they both still available? Btw, I guess I won't be posting pics of my infected toenail. Thank for spoiling my plans.

I've obtained a few enamel pins over the past year, maybe four or five, but I haven't yet figured out what to do with them. I mean, do I get some kind of display case? Put them on a hat, except I don't wear a hat, so that's a no-go. Maybe I'll find a nice looking vest or jacket, wear it every October festooned with dozens of little enamel horrors.

That's a good idea! Especially if you go to cons, etc.

All of mine are just in a box, for now.

...Right...here's one...
I just finished reading Debbie Harry's bio "Face It". One thing I had to look up on Internet while reading the book was about the time she and Chris Stein went to Switzerland to work on two videos with H. R. Giger for her first solo lp "Koo Koo". I remember when the record was released and loved the lp cover. I didn't know about the videos at all since back in 1981 I didn't have cable, Internet wasn't around, etc.

Anyhoo, I recommend both videos especially "Now I know you know" on YouTube. Amazing trippy hypnotic creation only Giger could imagine. Ms. Harry did a good thing collaborating with Giger. Good for her! The video reminds me of a silent film they way it was shot in 16mm. I love it! The character is like a mechanical mummy being reincarnated as...a goddess? This video was way ahead of it's time.

 That's great, thank you. Deborah Harry looks stunning in this. The overall look reminds me of ELP's "Brain Salad Surgery" cover.

Yep, I was thinking the same thing. Couldn't you find the NOTLD pic with the naked chick? That might rate a few clicks.
