If they are doing The Gate (which i love btw) then they may as well do a Ghoulies print. That movie is good fun.

Do you have ideas/suggestions for framing the postcards? I've seen it framed before, but thinking of getting a cheap frame from Hobby Lobby for them. Glad Mondo had these on hand.
Thats lame, a lot of us out here and Cali have lent out a helping hand to many of you Austin folk for rides, finding places to stay, poster buddies ect... for MMMLA . . . Yet none of us have been able to get a AWIL and they've been available for 3 days, call it what you want whining, bitching, whatever, im jus tellin it how i see it . . . this isn't directed at anyone specific. I jus find it frustrating seeing tons of these AWIL prints jumpin up on eBay for $300-$400 multiple times by the same sellers who are obviously in Austin. Ok Now I'm Done. Love U.

I haven't asked for crash space or rides or anything other than info from LA peeps here, and I posted an open offer on Friday to pick up any non-Frank FF prints or Maniac vinyls for members. Only one person here asked me to grab an Innkeepers print -- that was it. Apparently poster buddy offers don't count if they're not for a hugely sought-after print? Don't be so quick to blast those of us who are just average collectors like you just because some other greedy folks rounded up all their buddies and bought up prints for resale.

Besides, you should also take into account that sometimes people just can't afford to drop cash for other people's prints even with promises of quick payment. It all depends.
It counts to me!
You only asked for the poster because you're secretly in love with me. Admit it. :heart:

And toobs and I are all good. :cheers: He has reason to feel frustrated, but the people to lecture are on eBay, probably not posting here. (Though we could be wrong...)

Is it a secret or something? It's openly hanging on the wall at the store.

Right now Mondo has a one print per person policy period, so we are limited in the amount of people we can help. I have helped folks with every in store drop we have had. So have many others I stand in the lines with. All very gracious.

Usually I help those that have been cool to others on the board or have helped me in the past. Sometimes I will just randomly reach out to cool folks on the board to see if they need something.... I'll just say that bashing the folks in Austin is not a good way to get on anyones cool list here. What is that old saying..."you draw more bees with honey". So true.

Any word when the stuff from FF is going to drop online?

Between Frankenstein, House by the Cemetery, & The Beyond, I don't know if I'll be able to get them if they drop at the same time.
