HAD FUN !



   One of my favorite things to do is to go to comic book/video expos in the NYC area. I get off on the childlike enthusiasm of the people who go to those things.

    I had always wanted to start a black-themed collection of old films, music performances, television shows, etc, and was always interested in the old 60's and 50's tv.

    I went to a comic book expo just outta curiosity and was suprised that there was a whole culture of people who collect pop culture artifacts.
   The videos got me. Never a comic book enthusiast as some of my friends were, I purchased some old 60's tv show videos and enjoyed it so much that I go to em' on a regular. I consider myself a bit of a collector now.
    It's fun going to em'. I always like to see what "celebrities" show up at these things, (usually old tv show stars like the cast members of star trek, old wresters, superhero show stars, old western and tv heroes, etc) and it's actually fun to get to meet the people you were entertained by as a kid, and to get to tell em' how much you appreciated it. Usually they are pleasant enough. You get mostly adults (mostly men) at these nostalgia shows who share old childhood memories and I find it kinda cool.
    Here's me with a dvd of THE GREEN HORNET tv series with BRUCE LEE AS KATO from 1966. HAD FUN !!
