There Is Nothing Wrong With Your Television...





I'll get back to my photo adventure tonight, but several people brought up the old Outer Limits trading cards, Jelly Man in particular. Here's my set, though my favorite is a tie between The Thing From Mercury and the Xanthi Misfits (which were wasps with heads like Norman Fell). One day, I'll do a post on my Univeral Monsters trading card set, of which I'm missing only three out of 106. And no trading card posting would be complete without me showing myself in a 1992 trading card that Greg Loudon did for the AIDS Awareness series. If Greg could one day do a zombie card set, I don't think I'll have to do much more than just show up and make my nose bleed...Wayne

I didn't know they had these trading cards. Man, I'm pissed that I never found all this cool stuff when I was younger.

Dude!! Do you have a whole set of the Outer Limits cards??!!

One day my dad walked into the house not long after he'd opened his bookstore. "Are you interested in these?" He handed me a paper bag filled with MARS ATTACKS cards. I thought that they were cool, but not my bag, man. So I traded them to some other kid for something. I forget what, but something. Some models, I think.

The Universal cards look new. With an illustration by Mignola, they'd have to be new. At least by the way I consider "new".

Oh, I love the style of the Frankie and Bride artwork!

Oh, man, now there's a trip down Nostalgia Road--Outer Limits trading cards! They were THE hot item in my elementary school, especially because they were (inexplicably) difficult to find, unlike the Universal monster cards and the mini-sized Monster Midgees. My friend Sam has them all and more.

Weirdness--color cards from a B&W TV show.

Incidently, I still get creeped out whenever I think of "It Crawled Out of the Woodwork". This may explain why I never vacuum my apartment.

Two things;
1. There is DEFINITELY something wrong with EVERYONES' TVs. There's nothing but evil brainwashing crap on & now everyone's going to have to pay even more for it (switch to digital? Kiss my fat ass!)
2. Is that Bea Arthur in the last image, shooting smack? I never would have imagined...
