Remind Magazine says they are running low on some of their BEST back issues! Grab them! For that matter grab a subscription to the magazine! The magazine is Excellent and they have full access to the TV GUIDE archives and use many great images in the magazine! I was featured in the Christmas 2018 issue and the April 2019 issue and I will be featured in the August 2019 issue about Collecting! We also hope to celebrate Rankin/Bass' Frosty the Snowman in a future issue too!
The Hammond Downtown City Council cancelled tomorrow's event due to forecasted storms! We may end up playing at HAUNTING IN HAMMOND October 5th...we'll see!

Someone sent me the idiotic trailer for some new Banana Splits garbage tonight. The Costumes looked like they were bought at Party City and the concept appeared to be written by someone in a psycho ward.

Here I am with Romeo's brother Gene in New York in 2003! As you may know from my books and my blog, Romeo Muller, Jr. and Paul Coker, Jr. were the Stan Lee and Jack Kirby of the Rankin/Bass Universe! Romeo not only created all of the characters in Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, but went on to write and create characters for Frosty the Snowman, Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town, The Little Drummer Boy and more! He was also a member of the Writer's Guild. Paul Coker Designed all of the characters (which Kirby did for Marvel/Disney and was recently heavily compensated for), except for Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer which was designed by my late friend Tony Peters! The Rankin/Bass Universe would not be the same without Muller/Coker! Happy to help!
I have a new canvas print coming from my pal Greg Pair. I didn't know there were two versions of this cover! One with a reaction (Which is the one I have) and one prior to the reaction, which is the one on the canvas print.

Join my friends Tony, Jerry and I at the Wheaton All-Night Flea Market August 17th! Our friend Kristy McNichol is coming too!
I found a 1954 original release insert poster for "Living It Up" for basically free, one of the best Martin & Lewis films! Years ago I had the three sheet with the same graphics, but sold it due to it's huge size. #deanmartin #jerrylewis #livingitup

I was glad I got to meet him several times....the first time in costume! One of my best memories was the screening of the Batman 1966 movie in 1989 at Harper College! I made it into a News segment with Adam on ABC7!
