Honestly AJLe I'm shocked you would start a Dirty Harry project.

Breaker 1, Breaker 1, I might be crazy but I ain't dumb...

I finally made the trip down to Luray, Virginia to Cooter's Place, in order to get one of the last living Dukes of Hazzard people I've never met - Ben "Cooter" Jones. Ben is 76 years old, and rarely (if ever) does convention appearances anymore, but he does perform with his band almost every weekend...

Re: Friday Night MonsterMania Report

Having a family member who've suffered from strokes, it was probably more of him going through some "good moments" and "bad moments" with his motor skills throughout the day. When I met him (and I don't say this to be in any way insulting or disrespectful), if half of his sig had gone off the poster...

Re: Alamo City Comic Con - Oct 26th-28th 2018 - San Antonio, TX

To be fair, the $1250 is for the combo plus 3-day admission, not "just" the graph. Still obviously pricey, but if I hadn't gotten him back in March, I'd be booking a flight right now.

Friday Night MonsterMania Report

Left work early to head down to Cherry Hill for MonsterMania. After the total disaster the last show, I don't plan on ever going back on a Saturday unless it's absolutely necessary to get a major want. First thing I noticed was that the new scannable wristbands don't really accomplish much. When I f...

Re: Monster Mania 40- August 17-19, 2018- Cherry Hill, NJ

I'm pretty sure he was $40 the last time he did MMania, but that was a few years ago. Personally, if I was getting him I'd budget for $50-$60.

Don't know the graph price, but Dave has said that he will NOT be doing table ops.

Re: The Gathering (August 15-18, 2019) Charlotte, NC

I think the only thing NWA/Crockett related that could get me to make a trip down to Charlotte would be Ole Anderson with the rest of his Horsemen crew, but that doesn't seem likely. And even if they did book him, he'd be a high cancellation risk due to his health, so even he wouldn't be a slam dunk...

Re: Monster Mania 40- August 17-19, 2018- Cherry Hill, NJ

Dave and his sons SUCK at providing information. This is nothing new. They are in fact often combative about it. Very true. But con promoters still shrugging their shoulders and pointing at the agents in 2018 for price info is the equivalent of somebody still using a pro photo company that makes yo...

Re: Monster Mania 40- August 17-19, 2018- Cherry Hill, NJ

I kinda shake my head at Dave pushing hard the whole "The stars and their agents set the prices!" thing on FB. While that's true, it's also true that Dave obviously has the contact info for those agents (since he booked their guests) and could easily have asked them "what is so-and-so charging?" and...

Re: Hazzard County Comes to Steel City Con

Nice! Catherine Bach had some of the longest lines when I was there on Friday. Tom Wopat was sitting at his booth playing guitar and singing. It was weird seeing the disparity in the lines - Bach had the consistently longest (she came down later than the guys, but she never really burned through he...

Hazzard County Comes to Steel City Con

Made the (relatively) short drive to Monroeville, PA for the Steel City Con, mainly to get the elusive group pic of the surviving Dukes of Hazzzard family - Bo, Luke, and Daisy. And while there, get a complete 8x10 of the three. Got to the show for opening, and was able to get John Schneider and Tom...
