Something has gone awry. When I posted, the main page said it was 1999 before I posted, which would've made mine #2000. But on my computer right now, it says that my post is #2003 which doesn't match with what anybody says.

What's up with that?

PF's comment reminded me of Bill Cosby's children's brain damage sketch from Himself:
"I said, put your hand, on top of your head, and tell me what you feel."
"He said, there's no hair."
"I said, right! Now how did it get like that?"
"He said, I don't know."
"And that's brain damage!"

So here's my hand, with a VHS (:eek: ) version of that show. :jellopuddingpops: Tell me what you all feel. :) Stilla, when we get older, we start to lose our minds and these new-fangled machines seem to get crazier every year. I know that's true for me. :crazed: :tired:

At that point in the day, I had already snagged some WM exclusive DC figures, so I couldn't complain too much for that WM's lack of new stuff. I just love running into the occasional angry third shift employee who gives me guff when they see me looking at products on skids.

As a collector and a former WM employee, I know: if it's on the floor, it's LEGALLY for sale. You have toys, I have $$. Where did our communication go sour?

I don't hunt as much as I do, but I was in dayton, using one of the parents cars (not my gas) and we were in the neighborhood, so I hit 3 stores and found nada that night.


I think I've seen that picture before somewhere.

lol This pic is pretty much all of us at one point, BF. You could take me out and toss in another collector and there wouldn't be much of a difference.

If you start, don't stop. I was half way through my Master's when I ran out of money (primarily) and enthusiasm for academics. I double majored as an undergrad and jumped right into my Master's, but six years of school and living on minimum wage jobs took its toll on me mentally.

I regret not finishing my graduate degree. It haunts me.

Sorry to hear that. You are not the first person to tell me that, though. My biggest worry is taking the coming semester off from school. I hope I can still get back in the swing of things come next fall.

Fortunately, though, I'm entering a profession that requires you to continue with your education. Not finishing is not really an option.

Back to the picture posting. Here's my father-in-law and I getting ready to climb a rock wall. Note the pseudo "hardcore-ness". On a side note, I was sure to wear a Red Wings shirt on my first day in Colorado much the same way a dog imediately pees on a new tree to mark his territory. :pleased:

There aren't pictures that I know of, but I remember the days I got my best vintage toys:

Millennium Falcon / Death Star came for the holidays. I believe I got it all together!

AT-AT was for my birthday and it was a rainy day. I couldn't wait to get home from school and play with it. My mom let me peek in the car trunk, but she had to drive the other kids in our car pool home first.

Ewok Village was during the holidays as well. I remember they only made Chirpa and Logray when that came out. So I had a whole village but only 2 Ewoks.

But those were good days.

I was at a restaurant that I also ended up working at for a couple years, J.T. Brandons. Like many restaurants that occupied that corner of the outskirts of the mall, they went belly up. Sadly I worked at two other of the new places that occupied that same building before they also met their demise.

The mall here has one of those "As Seen on TV" stores, but I've not checked to see if they have them there. I've never thought to check Target or anyplace like that either. Maybe they aren't real ShamWow's. The ad does say to beware of imitators.

In that case, do they actually work? How does the price compare to the incredible deal they are offering on TV?

They're $19.95 at Walgreens and $19.99 at Target, and it's the full set of eight (four large orange ones and four little blue ones). I've only tried the big ones and they worked really well the first time I used them. They don't really work wet too well, and they seem to have lost some of their power after being washed in the washing machine. There's a fairly long instruction list on the box, so maybe I missed something.

Also, there's the shot in the commercial of the lady rolling up her sweater in a giant ShamWow. They're not nearly that big (or maybe she was a midget or baby or something).

From BobaFrett's camera, used with permission:

I'm in love with my nurse Michelle and seem to be winding up dating her! :love:

A concert and Comic Con, plus a restaurant trip are in our immediate future as I recover.

Even more importantly - the only reason WHY I'm recovering at all - Barry BobaFrett from our very own message boards, the man who saved my life with his selfless kidney donation!

I'm wearing my Chargers gear coincidentally when BobaFrett wore his Bears shirt, so we call this NFL matchup the Kidney Bowl!

With Barry is his wife Robin who took care of him during this difficult proceedure.

I sat in conversation with both Josh and his nurse, and I didn't recall seeing powerpuff girls, most likely because I didn't want to get hit by my wife for looking at her too much. But now that I see it, they do look like powerpuff girls, OMG.

Josh may want to do a little more research however, to make sure that it wasn't something that the hospital gave her, because she might actually despise the PPG's.

No one can despise the Powerpuffs. A cartoon that appears to be a superhero series for little girls, but has references to things like South Park and Monty Python, an entire episode composed of Beatles lyrics, and a recurring villain who's Satan (and just happens to be a crossdresser)? That's one of the best shows ever made!

These pictures are from the Anaheim Queensryche concert at Downtown Disneyland, House of Blues.

Here is me and my friend Christina (also from San Diego) with bass player and vocalist Eddie Jackson (Ed Bass).

Next is me with lead singer Geoff Tate, the world's best voice 10 times over!

And next is me with drummer Scott Rockenfield (Scotty that keeps the engines running).

This band is just so awesome. These photos were taken at the private party for selected guests after the concert, just prior to everyone leaving Anaheim, heading back to San Diego.

This is a good sized group of us from the after-show private party where the band meets and greets invited fans.

The next pic is me and Guitar Hero Michael Wilton (The Whip) who plays lead guitar in the band.

This was such a good time. I saw the show for several nights in a row and I'm completely drained and tired, but I'm so wanting to go to another concert!

Cool! I don't know much about them, but I know you really love the band. Have you met them before?

Yes, I met Queensryche on April 2, at a promo for their new album (released March 31) at Best Buy, in Thousand Oaks, Calif. The band is from Seattle, Washington, but went around the country for promo appearances where music is sold (most stops were in California). There they signed autographs and I got one of their new CD's signed for BobaFrett and I took one of the newspaper clippings about his kidney donation and a picture of the two of us so that they would know who they were signing for. I have a picture of bass guitarist Ed Jackson reading the article from the Elmhurst Press ('Frett's hometown newspaper) concerning his brave gift that saved my life. I sent those to Barry, as you can barely see me at the edge of the frame in each of them anyway. (My friend took the pictures and she was mainly trying to get the band members in her photos.)

When I saw them again beginning April 22 and thereafter, they remembered me and my story. Geoff Tate immediately asked me how my doctors said I was doing. He's a really sincere, kind person. Before this past month, I never knew what exactly to expect from a major rock star. But this band's members are some of the coolest people I've ever met - and I got to spend a good deal of time with them on this latest tour so I feel alright making that call.


And what's the deal with Christina? Your "friend", eh? :lipsrsealed:

She's my friend. I met her at another Queensryche concert some years ago. Now we see a lot of shows together. It's great having a friend that loves the same kind of music as you do.


Dude, Geoff Tate is an incredible vocalist! Awesome pics man.

Thanks and I totally agree about Geoff!!! I've been a fan for over 20 years. I reflected on that with him personally when I remembered that Queensryche was in the tapedeck when I was first learning to drive.


Way cool! Geoff and you could almost be brothers in that pic.


Cool. But I just got a new brother with BobaFrett. Now I get these strange urges to buy Stormtrooper armor...

Glad he got the FX Lightsaber bug though. That's a healthy addiction.


He grew his hair out.

Yeah, his hair has been long since at least 2006. After my brain aneurysm (Aug. 2005), Queensryche was the first rock concert I lept to go to (Oct. 2006). In fact, I got a voicemail message that I'd been approved to get a kidney transplant while I was staying at a hotel on San Diego's main waterfront with my former girlfriend from back in high school who I brought out to go to the show with me. That was always one thing I took her do back then, too (Empire Tour in those days). So I saw Mindcrime II (which was actually the full 3 hour concert of the whole Operation Mindcrime with stage sets and weapons and costumes for at least 9 different actors who joined the band to put on a super show - and I went to that 4 times from Oct 2006 to Dec 2006 in a few different towns around the Southwest.) Then I saw their greatest hits played live in 2007, and in 2008 I saw their cover-song tour, which was accompanied by a set list compiled by their fans on the internet. I usually see them play about 3 times every year. I love it that they like to tour so much and interact with their fans like this. When I'm restored to full health and all my surgeries are over, I'm going to follow them around the country to various shows in states where I already have friends I can visit. A few plane tickets and a collection of those little shampoo bottles you get in hotel rooms and I might finally wash that obsession out of me. (Probably not though. And I'll just be hoping they don't retire so I can do it again!)


Where's the other guitarist Chris DeGarmo?

His wife made him quit the band. She didn't want him constantly touring. He became an airline pilot, but he has occasionally played with the full band while they're home in Seattle. He also sang with Geoff Tate on a song they wrote together and performed as Queensryche.

He is the only man to ever be replaced in the original lineup for this band. There have been three (3) guitarists since:

Kelly Gray (who mixes and produces for Queensryche, even working on their latest album).

Mike Stone a guitarist in his 30's (who was the best - next to DeGarmo - in my opinion, who left to play more punk music and forge a new sound for himself. Queensryche provides links on their website to Stone's projects, so there's only good friendship going on there).

Parker Lungren, who's 22 years old I think, and used to work for the Queensryche fan club answering the phone and filling shipping orders. He played really great guitar, so Geoff invited him to play in his solo band, which incidentally features many of the members of Queensryche anyway on various occasions - but plays lighter, "more coffee shop" music that doesn't really fit with the Queensryche program (but is seriously good to anyone who loves Geoff's singing). So when Stone unexpectedly announced plans to leave, Geoff invited Parker to try out playing with the full band on their heavy stuff. Meanwhile, Parker started dating and became engaged to Miranda Tate, Geoff's 21 year old daughter (I met them too, of course). Geoff will be his father-in-law and Susan Tate (Miranda's mom, Geoff's wife) will be Parker's 2nd boss - Miranda being his first of course. (I wonder how THIS is all going to work out. But with Emily Tate (12 years old) singing on the new album really long verses and chorus lines, Queensryche has really become a whole family act. It's kind of like the Osbournes without drugs, too much alcohol, and tons of stupidity).


Nice pics Josh!

Thanks. Here's a new one of me in front of my seat at the San Diego Padres game the other night. I usually sit around here at the ballpark and you will be especially happy to know I'm bringing my Grandpa, Uncle, and Aunt to the Cubs game in August when I'm once more all recovered. (They play the Cubs in another earlier series, but I'm not sure I'll be healed enough to attend. I'll play that one by ear.)

You have the coolest job ever. I never get to go to school for stuff like that.

I have to agree! Where can you blow stuff up on purpose and it's OK to do it!?

Actually, there is a serious side to all of this. The FBI enlists the help of other law enforcement agencies throughout the country to help it out on big cases. For example, the Oklahoma City bombing had literally hundreds of people from other agencies from surrounding states (and beyond) to help work that awful tragedy. That scene was worked 24/7 until it was completed. It takes a bunch of folks to make that happen. The Feds just don't have that much manpower. So, they provide the training and we come a-runnin' when they need us. I've been called out once so far by them and I'm used frequently by our own bomb squad (believe it nor not, California is the Pipe Bomb Capital of the Nation!).

I've also been through arson school. Same drill: you get to burn stuff up and then go find out the cause and origin. Working arson cases is one of the most interesting aspects of my job IMO.

I feel very fortunate to have fallen into such an interesting job (I had planned on becoming a teacher but fate had other ideas). You can imagine there's a lot to the job that's not so appealing as well.

Well I have to get my 4th of July pictures up because it's the week after already.

I took 5 friends to see the San Diego Padres defeat the LA Dodgers 7-4 in an exciting back-and-forth game where everyone got a free beach towel that looks like a Calif. license plate that says, "BEAT L.A." on it with the San Diego Padres' logo on it big and bold - and that's exactly what the Padres went on to do!

The one girl I truly love went and most of my pictures are with her. There's a great group shot of 4 of my friends together with me in our seats at the game.

Afterwards we went out to hit the beach bars and then watched like 8 fireworks shows simultaneously that were shot over the water as the partyboats circled around the bay with DJs and dancing on board, plus all-you-can-eat buffets (with hot wings, shrimp cocktails, stuff like that) and the first drink on the house. I love San Diego!

JT will be in the picture with Figrin, Chux, and me.

I am also waiting for the pictures from my friends camera that were taken today of me and wait for it....Mark Hamill!

I went to Official Pix' booth and Mark was signing (for $100 for every pic) and he overheard my conversation with the lady that was selling the autograph tickets. She'd seen me and Barry in the Star Wars Insider and knew of our kidney transplant and Mark called me over to the front of the line and we talked about what happened. I thanked him for being there from the beginning which started this whole phenomenon which still fills a significant part of my life and actually wound up initiating the friendship with Barry, that saved my life.

I wanted to put Barry on the phone with Mark Hamill but "BobaFrett" was not available. We didn't do voicemail because I didn't want to hold up Mark's autograph line. But the people they let me ahead of didn't mind at all and actually congratulated me on my story and recovery. I shared with Mark the fact that I'll be back playing baseball next month thanks to this surgery. When I get the pictures from my friend (he's putting them on a CD for me) I'll post them along with Figrin, Chuxter, JT, and me, as well as a shot of me and BumbleBee from Transformers. Michael Bay wasn't there or I'd have told him how great I think his movies are - especially the scene with Wheelie the robot humping Megan Fox's leg.

The Smallville panel was my favorite part of Comic Con, and I'll post about that in the Smallville thread. The 9th season will be starting and they are shooting for a 10th even. Clark WILL become Superman finally. JT and I saw him in a dark outfit with the House of El symbol on his chest (the famous "S") and wearing a dark trench coat. The show may be retitled "Metropolis!"

I also enjoyed hanging out with SirSteve on the rooftop nightlife spot above the Merriott, called Club Altitude.

Oh boy. As much as my better senses tell me NOT to go to Comic Con another year, I'm sure I'll be buying next year's ticket in the next couple of days. We were told that there's NO on-site discount for purchasing it at Comic Con in person, 365 days early even, and the price has risen to $100 for 2010. :rolleyes:

07-26-2009, 10:13 PM
Holy crap, I had my phone turned off, as I went to Church today. That would have been awesome to hear from Mr. Hamill! I'm glad you got to share the story with him! I'm still looking forward to seeing pictures! Awesome! Was Mark signing Star Wars pics? Or just standard photos? I had heard at one time he wouldn't sign anything Star Wars.

Fine time to have my phone turned off. *kicks self in hind quarters*

Tycho
07-27-2009, 05:08 AM
I always put my phone on vibrate mode when I don't want to disturb anyone else with my calls. Then I answer "Hold on" if I have to go somewhere else where it will be easier to talk. But this way my phone will always be able to record the information in case Megan Fox calls me when I can't answer the phone. But you better believe I'd answer the phone!

Anyway, Mark was signing Star Wars autographs on Star Wars pictures of him - with Yoda on his back, in his X-wing, fighting Vader in ESB, with Han and Leia on the Death Star, etc. (He loves Leia's line "You came in THAT thing?" and all the jokes about the Millennium Falcon "What a piece of junk!")

He was really great with the little kids. One came up with his father and looked at the Luke pictures and then at Mark and said "Dad, that isn't Luke Skywalker." And Mark replied "Well don't tell anyone, but I'm actually Luke's grandpa." The little kid nodded and accepted his autograph.

They also had the Uncle Milton "Force trainer" where you levitate stuff one isle over in the huge Star Wars pavillion that they always have in Comic Con. Well, another little kid tells Mark that he just found out that he can use the Force over there and levitate things in the Uncle Milton display. He said that Mark should go over there and see what he could do - that Mark could raise it all the way to the ceiling. Mark replied that this would be cheating because he's a Jedi Master.

The guy is so great with people and really enjoys being part of Star Wars. I'd met him before during Comic Cons and SW Celebrations, but this was the most memorable time and the longest interaction I ever had with him. Mark Hamill is just one more reason to be proud to be a Star Wars fan.

Well, here I am with Mark Hamill (aka Jedi Master Luke Skywalker) himself!

Mark was great with the kids and showed a tremendous sense of humor: a little kid looking at the movie photos of Luke and then peering up at Mark said, "Daddy, this isn't Luke Skywalker." Mark calmly replied, "Well Luke had to leave to go out and save the galaxy again, so he asked me to cover for him here. I'm Luke's grandpa." The little kid looked at him with full-moon eyes and nodded softly and let Mark sign an autograph for him. It was a classic moment and I got to share a laugh with the one-and-only Mark Hamill.

I also met BumbleBee from Transformers. He said his dramatic crying scene with Shia LeBouf in Revenge of the Fallen illustrates how he could be appropriately cast in a sentimental role when Michael Bay makes a new movie for the Lifetime channel without explosions. BumbleBee described it as a story about a car who breaks up with his longtime mechanic because the garage across the street has cheaper prices during the economic downturn.

Finally, here again is an illusive photo of JediTricks, along with FigrinBran, myself, and El Chuxter at the Transformers panel at Comic Con.

We do express a lot of dark humor on occasion while on scene. Especially if it's a bad one. It's a way of dealing with the stress and unpleasantness. So, mabs' little scenario is appreciated! (Although he forgot to mention all my female colleagues in their slinky, low-cut garb ;)).

BTW: If you were wondering, I'm in the Vaderesque attire. My unit is permitted to wear plain clothes or uniform. For me, uniform is cheaper and more durable given the types of locations (urban and rural) we end up working. Street clothes don't last near as long as a pair of boots and BDUs.

It's the way you sit in the kayak, and not having muscles worked out, in addition to my right leg wanting to curl up because of the years of not walking on it correctly. Next year, I'm hoping to drop some more weight, and do some stretching beforehand.

Ah. OK. Well I hope it gets better for you. Yeah. I need to try kayacking. You can rent them to go out in the bay here for $18 for 2 hours I believe.

You get to kayack with the sea lions and dolphins riding along next to you. It's pretty cool.

I want to meet that one baby seal (or sea lion I think) that went ashore and took off and went to Chevy's Mexican Grill over in Del Mar (next town north of La Jolla where you were staying out here).

If that little seal would cross a highway to go to a restaurant (remember, this is a TRUE story that was in the newspaper here - I linked to it some time ago), he must know all the best places to get seafood along the Southern California coast.

When you kayack here, the seals and dolphins really do come by and say "hello."

You play in shorts, Quack?

I'm making it a point to buy myself some new baseball pants this week. I was even wearing some and I dove into 2nd base when they tried to pull a double-play on my team last weekend. I skinned my left knee open (and cut up my right hand - so add batting gloves and an athletic cup to my sporting goods shopping list). I think my old pants were washed too thin, so I'll look for something thicker this time.

I also need to remind myself that after a kidney transplant, not letting them get me out is just not THAT important! :rolleyes:

But actually I got on base and they didn't catch me. However, the throw to 1st was still in time to get the next batter for out No2. Then another of my teammates flew out to left, leaving me stranded on 2nd.

I remember that inning clearly since I play 2nd base and I didn't feel like walking around on that leg too much, so I just yelled for a teammate to throw me my glove and I went about my infield drills for the next inning and I could eventually ignore the pain (that was Sunday however - right now I just changed the bandage because it was bugging me and keeping me up at 2am going into Tuesday morning here).

Tonight I took Barry and my doctor's out to the ballgame to say thanks for taking such good care of us and literally saving my life.

Pictured are Dr. Randy Schaefer (Barry's doctor), Dr. John Fisher (my doctor), myself, and Dr. Chris Marsh (Chief of Surgery for our Scripps Hospital).

I got BobaFrett here on the phone with Dr. Schaefer while we were at the ballgame.

We had terrific seats and I caught a ball launched into the stands by the Padres Girls (at the 5th inning they throw squish balls, rolled up shirts, and other prizes into the stands). This photo was not shot at our seats but at the top of the stairs leading down to them (1st base field box).

So maybe this could have been posted in the Tycho's Health Update, but it also qualifies as a picture of myself that I posted, so...

Any pictures of me as a youth would:
a) be far too embarassing,
b) all be in black & white, being from the '20s and '30s of course,
c) break down the entire Internet from hideousness,
d) all of the above, or
e) 42.

I'll probably do the 4 braids in a couple of weeks again, get a picture of that one.

I went to the game last night with my friends Marq, Debbie, and Matt and we had some great seats. I'll post some shots from the game (of Adrian Gonzalez and Heath Bell) in the MLB "beisbol" thread.

Actually, what the hell: I'll post them here.

I became an uncle on Monday! Here is Naomi, only 8 hours old. I stayed up all night with my smallest family member. She came as a surprise while I was at the baseball game. So I rushed to bring Naomi her first Padres uniform. You're never too young to be a fan! So no sleep, but looking forward to the Del Mar Race Track on Friday and Nickelback with Pappa Roach on Saturday night!

Congrats on being an uncle, Tycho! Is this your first niece or nephew?

I have 2 nephews and I LOVE being an Uncle!

I believe it is his second Niece. His first niece is pictured with us in Star Wars insider issue #109

Yup, this is my cousins' 2nd daughter!

LBC, great picture. From the scoreboard I think you are at an Atlanta Falcons game?

Looks like you had seats pretty close to the field? Where were you?

Going to pro-sports games is awesome (especially baseball games for me).

We are both only children, though Gloria has half-siblings.

So without a close brother, and us being nearly the same age, she says I'm her children's uncle.

Yup, they really are cousins. She is my Grandma's Great Niece, and the babies are her kids. So she is my 3rd cousin, and her children are my 4ths in actuality.

Unless my adopted little brother has kids (he and his wife will probably one day), I have very little chance of being an uncle.

My family now only really consists of cousins, and my own uncle, and my grandpa.

But BobaFrett is technically now also my big brother. :thumbsup:

Okay, so last night I sit down to dinner, and the first two pictures are of the Fork that was next to my plate, I said "are you trying to say something?" I mean do I honestly shovel my food into my mouth that I would need a fork that size?

The third picture is of my naturely curly hair, just shower, through a little leave on conditioner and toss, wa la!

Frett,

I hope when I reach your age that I still have a fraction of the thick and swarthy hair you possess. If you look at the earlier photo I posted, my brother who is 6 years older, is starting to lose it fast. I hope I didn't get his gene!

Thanks Frett! I've never ridden a motorbike before, so its been a real learning experience. Lotsa fun!

Its a Harley Sportster 1200 Custom. Everything on it is stock except for the sissy bar / luggage rack, locking gas cap, and small bag on front forks.

The leather jacket I want to get is a distressed brown with no collar. I might have to change it to a distressed black though, as my uniform for work is brown. ... There's a helmet I kinda want to get that is designed to look like a helicopter pilot helmet; I was thinking to get that and have someone either paint it to look like Luke's X-wing helmet, or use Scotchlite reflective tape.

Took a solo ride yesterday up to French Creek State Park, in PA. It was just under 100 miles roundtrip. Gas light came on on the way there but I wanted to wait to see how far I could go. Seems the light comes on at about a half tank. I had been determined to make it all the way home, but after sputtering up a number of hills I decided to get gas with about 5 miles to go. It took 4 gallons (tank is 4.5).


Where'd you get such a ginormous fork Frett?

Here's me at Nickelback with Hinder, Papa Roach, and Saving Abel.

Last night I saw AC/DC but you can barely tell it's me in those pictures because it was so dark. I'll post more of the concert pictures in the music section under the bands the pics match up with.

Sweet, did the dealer give you lessons? Or how do you go about getting a motorcycle driving license if you don't yet have a bike? Or does the dealer give you a permit?

My brother bought a bike from my dad, he put $500 dollars down on it, then didn't make a payment for several months, so my dad sent him an e-mail saying "if your not going to pay for the bike, then give it back", so my brother drove it to my dads cabin, left it in his driveway, and booked. What a moron he can be sometimes.

My step sister set the table that night, and she put on the table the silverware my wife put out for her to set.

Hey, family is family! Congratulations, Uncle Tycho! I get called Uncle Andy by friends/children of friends and have been since before I had biological nephews.
