Saratoga History Museum Honor

If you haven't read on Facebook or the jillion other places I promote myself, I'm being honored as one of 100 famous Saratogans at the Saratoga History Museum now through January. This Friday, November 27, at 6pm, they are having an open house to show the museum. Other honorees include Stephen Spielberg, Olivia De Havilland, Kerri Walsh, Ed Solomon, Lance Guest, Bill Hasselman, among others. I will be there if you are in the area. The Saratoga Historical Foundation Museum located at Saratoga Historical Park: 20450 Saratoga-Los Gatos Road, Saratoga, CA.

Yay! Casper in Hardback and in Color!!!

The "Casper 60th Anniversary Special" is out today featuing the complete St. John "Casper" #1" and complete Harvey "Harvey Comics Hits" #60 (which actually is "Casper" #6). Incidentally, the copy of "Casper" #6 used in the book is my copy. I shipped it to Leslie Cabarga for scanning and he sent it back. Just FYI, as my name wasn't mentioned in the book. The best part besides being in color and a hardback is that it's only $9.95! What a deal! Finally, some respect for lowly Harvey.

Good Evening New York City

Paul McCartney has just released his 347th album since leaving The Beatles, where he sings "Let Me Roll It" for the 45,652nd time in his career. The 94-year-old ex-Beatle said of the release, "I just need to milk it one more time before I join John and George in the sky!"

Ringo commented that he was more impressed with "Two Virgins", and has now approached Paul to be an All-Starr, as this album now qualifies him.

George Martin was quoted as saying, "What?"

McCartney hopes to outsell (and outlive) Yoko Ono's new CD, "I'm Screaming My Head Off and I Don't Know Why". Available at better record stores and Goodwills everywhere.

Christmas is Coming! Buy My Books!

Didn't mean to scare you...

Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm Christmas CD

I saw this on CD for the very first time when I went to Border's yesterday. Does this mean that the other long out-of-print and never issued to CD Hanna-Barbera albums are due out soon?

Hey Hey I'm a Be-Atle!

1000 Comic Books You Must Read

Here is yet another book that I assisted with about the information on Harvey Comics. My friend Tony Isabella has written an excellent volume as it covers all types of comic books, not just the superheroes. My highest recommendation!!

Fun Ideas Productions News

In case you didn't hear it (or I haven't bragged about it enough to you in person or on Facebook), here is my appearance on the November 4th edition of "The Dan Shahin Show" on KSCU in its entirety.


I'll be posting my appearance on "The Howard Stern Show" from the same day as soon as I get a copy of it.

Also, while I have your attention, please be sure to stop by The Saratoga History Museum anytime from now through January as I'm being honored as one of 100 famous Saratogans. The museum is located at 20450 Saratoga-Los Gatos Road in Saratoga (obviously). It is normally open Fri, Sat and Sun from 1-4pm. There will be an open house reception on November 27 at 6pm. All are invited. I'll be there.

And, for my East Coast friends. If Saratoga, CA, is too far away, you might want to attend the Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art at 594 Broadway #401 in New York, on November 19, at 7pm, as they have an opening reception for "The Art of Archie Comics", which I helped coordinate. I don't think I'll be in attendance that day, but the show does run through February 28, 2010, so I may make it out there before the show concludes its run.
