Me too, I am excited for the rest :popcorn:
Where are we going and why am I in this hand-basket?

I'm just glad it was pretty good, long and drawn out. (that's what she said.)

Thanks, fellas. Part 6 is up!

The condo is right on the water and I think poor Jim is sitting in the glare coming off it while I am situated in some shade provided by the blinds. Sorry, Jim!

What a great last photo :thumb:

Just listened to the last 2 episodes.
Thanks guys for doing this. :thumb:

Now everyone who watches it should give it the thumbs up aswell. I think the last one had 23 views and only 3 thumbs up :thumb:
I wish their was a Spinal Tap comic, and I had a copy CGC graded at 11.

You guys have done a really great thing here. Incredibly nice of you to acknowledge Jim's 50th anniversary in the business like that. I'm still working my way through the interview clips when I can, but wanted to say, it's a solid interview so far. :clap:

My wife likes to draw stuff too, and she is better than me! [I'm very proud of her]... https://www.facebook.com/pages/Sara-Dec ... ref=stream" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Thanks! I thought the interview was awesome...I was hanging on every word..really rare video footage..
Lots of great tidbits..
I really loved warriors of plasm and dark dominion..
I know classic media ended up with warriors of plasm, but not sure about dark dominion..

Don't even know how to add to this, but just zenith-high kudos to all involved in making this magic happen.
I honestly loved every minute of it and it was so much fun to hear the 50 years of lifetime stories from Mr. Shooter himself.
