PIXAR is 8 for 8!

We saw RATATOUILLE yesterday and it is a very different kind of film than the usual animated film. Again, it is a well written film and does not rely on farting and throw up jokes like the usual bunch of CGI films. In other words, it is special. We also saw the most unfunny trailer for a film called UNDERDOG. If you want to see how a classic cartoon can be totally ruined, check this one out!

EBAY link

GIN BLOSSOMS in Downers Grove & Crystal Lake, IL

We had a GREAT time at some GIN BLOSSOMS shows over the weekend with our friend ROBIN WILSON and the rest of the guys. A GREAT way to kick off the summer and SCOTTY JOHNSON'S new solo CD was just released. ROBIN and SCOTTY played and sang on both of my CDs. We will be seeing them again in AUGUST!

Original RANKIN/BASS 'Animagic' figure on EBAY!

To start out my birthday, I listed an original 'ANIMAGIC' figure from THE FIRST CHRISTMAS (1975) on EBAY under seller ANIMAGIC1. These puppets are extremely scarce and I put a fair RESERVE on the auction. This is one of the jewels of my RANKIN/BASS collection BUT it is time to find her a new home. She comes with all of her original eyes, mouths and a few eye lids too. She got plenty of screen time in the RANKIN/BASS classic TV special. It will definitely be a CHRISTMAS IN JULY for some lucky winner! Hopefully she will wind up in a museum for all to enjoy.
