Ha! ...and posters cost only $30 back in those days...maybe $38 w/shipping.
I remember smelling my Night of the Creeps.

I became a man that day.

Another perfect example of why nobody takes this forum seriously. Anonymous clowns making trite jokes about things they can't grasp. Get real dude, Jay rules.
Sorry man, not following you here.
You seem to take it seriously enough to log in and sass off at his haphazard comment. He doesn't like the poster, end of story. Why is he a clown? What exactly does he have to 'grasp'?

He could have chosen to take time in constructing a quality debriefing of the print, but he went with his knee jerk reaction. It's less about hiding behind the internet, and more about the fact that visual creativity (or lack thereof) often gets adored or cast aside in seconds.

What was personal? You threw out the personal attack/name calling.

Also, in terms of 'folks not taking this place seriously' check out your other friend's threads, Olly and DD...places where good rapport (as well as critiques) is evident over a stretch of time between the artists and their fans/demographic.
i'm with wonka on this. "sir" came out firing, and then bitched and moaned about people who do the same fudge as he.

Have there been any rumors or ideas as to when Mondo is going to release the regular version of Back to the Future Part III by Durieux?

I have the other two regular versions and can't wait to complete the set!

Thanks in advance.

I was about to check out of this conversation, but I have got to reply to this because let's face it, it's COMPLETE horseshit. It's trying to invalidate years of hard work, which began long before my name was mentioned on this forum. I did not make and perpetuate a thread about my art, I am not in debt to this forum. If I'm being honest, and anyone reading this, if you agree with the above statement from wonkabars7, please, don't buy anything from me in the future. I don't want support from people that think their patronage equals some sort of ownership in how I should act, think, or feel. If someone is being a cynical dickhead for no reason, I'm going to call them out on it. What does buying something from me have to do with that?

And EB is the reason I was able to move to Austin? What the hell are you smoking cause I want some.

Absolutely. Gotta wrap it up early though, I've grown increasingly anxious about driving at night.

Sundowns at 6, so even driving at half the speed limit, in the fast lane, and almost coming to a complete stop for left turns, I should be home before dark to take my evening pills and overpay for things I don't need on HSN.

Old people jokes!
