 Re: Shilling Shockers Marathon today
I was able to stop by at the studio with my daughter for a visit last night. We got to meet the Shilling Shockers gang and even got put on screen for a bit while they were filming a little between-scenes promo segment!

My daughter turns four next month, so this is the first year she's REALLY been into the whole Halloween thing. I wanted to bring her to this event because I figured it would be a special memory for her. Knowing that she'd probably be scared of a witch and (especiallly) a werewolf, I tried to build it up over the past couple of days--telling her that we were going to see these creatures who were my friends and who were good (even if they looked a bit scary). True to form, she was very shy when meeting them. Penny and Garou made a point of trying to engage her in a gentle way and I appreciated that (she DID accept some candy from Garou--guess chocolate can defeat the fear of being in close proximity to a werewolf). While she was very quiet and shy during our visit, as expected, as soon as we left all she could talk about was Penny and Garou!

P.S. She didn't have any nightmares last night, so apparently the visit wasn't too shocking for her :wink: .

Here's a photo of my daughter and myself with the Shilling Shockers gang from October 30 (my daughter's the shy skeleton that I'm holding).

It's a bit late, but here's another photo of my daughter and I hanging out with Penny and Garou. Trust me, she wasn't traumatized by the experience--just a little shy and apprehensive about meeting a witch and a werewolf (which I think is understandable).

 Re: Shilling Shockers Marathon today
I finally got around to seeing a Shilling Shockers show the other night. WCCA-TV streams it on the Internet , but at the unholy hour of 1AM Friday (or late late Thursday night if you will). I could only watch for a half hour before I got too sleepy--I would love for RTV to air this show... say around 10PM on Saturday nights?

...Penny is a real hoot!

 Re: Shilling Shockers Marathon today
Agreed. Nothing against Wolfman Mac, but I'd LOOOVE to see Penny's "Shilling Shockers" and/or Mark's "Saturday Fright Special" there on Saturday nights instead! They do sell most (if not all) the seasons of Shilling Shockers at their website. I have two of the seasons and they're really fun to watch. My daughter wanted to watch a couple episodes over and over after we met the Shilling Shockers gang that night!

Hey gang. This isn't exactly Halloween-related, but this seemed like the best thread to mention this. Saturday afternoon Penny Dreadful and Garou made another Worcester appearance and I just HAD to take my daughter to see them again! She was much more comfortable being around them this time. Here's my blog entry about our visit with them if you'd care to read it:

 Re: Shilling Shockers Marathon today
Thanks Beastball! And, what is up with your new avatar and Batmobile "signature"? Too cool! I'm assuming that you did that for the 45th anniversary of the 1966 TV show. How did you manage to put up an animated avatar?

 Re: Shilling Shockers Marathon today
Actually, the 45th Anniversary of the show didn't occur to me so that's great!
I put up the new Batman avatar for a few reasons. I've been waiting for the Batman TV show to be released on DVD for so long, and to my knowledge has never been released nor will ever be in the foreseeable future. I decided to download the bootleg available on Bit Torrent. It's been decades since I've seen it and it's wonderful!
Also, for the past 2 years ( :o ) I've been working on my AMT Enterprise kit and am about 80% finished. The reason for my glacier-like pace is two-fold: 1. I've been heavily accurizing/modifying the kit and 2. I only work on it sporatically when I feel like it. I sometimes put it down for weeks or a month at a time. In fact, since the playoffs and baseball started, I've barely looked at it. What does this have to do with Batman? Well, several years ago I bought this fantastic resin Batmobile kit out of Italy and am now thinking of building it after the Enterprise is done.

Here's what the Batmobile kit looks like (click each to enlarge):

As you can see from the pictures of a finished kit its highly detailed. It even has a jet turbo engine instead of a regular gasoline engine--which makes sense since the Batmobile on TV had a flame jet exhaust!

As to how I made the animated avatar; it wasn't hard provided you have two programs.
Since I now have all the Batman episodes in my computer as avi files, I simply fired up my NERO editing program and snipped the desired section and saved it to my computer. Then I used my JASC Paint Shop Pro which has an animated gif generator. All I needed to do was edit the clip to fit the CDF board parameters for avatars (100 X 100 pixels, 1MEG or under).

In all honesty, I made the animated avatar just to see if I could do it. Now that I know how, I can make all sorts of animated avatars from now on provided I have the avi file.

...We return now to your regularly scheduled thread :)
