Collections / My collection boxed up and home construction photos
« on: January 1, 2005, 11:59 PM »
Just to be a little different, I'm about to start pulling stuff off shelves.  We've spent the last couple of days painting and doing general fix-up stuff for our house.  We've been planning on getting a different house for a while, but now that I know my job is stable (for a while, anyway), we've decided to get the house ready to sell.  We likely won't list it until we buy a new one (or build, we've given ourselves a short period of time to find a house we like, otherwise we need to build). 

As such, I'm about to start the packing up process.  My wife thinks that a room dedicated to star wars toys is not really going to be a huge selling point.  She also suggested that having stuff I don't want stolen sitting out on shelves is probably not a good idea (hello blue snaggletooth).  I am rather inclined to agree with her, so instead of opening more stuff up to display, it's getting put away. 

Most of my material is in tupperware tubs and there are more of those than she is aware of ;)  I'm thinking this stuff will also make the same journey to plastic bins of hell, but I'm not sure some of it should be there.  So I'm kind of looking for suggestions from folks as to what should be done.  The vintage collection is what I am most worried about.  I have piles of loose figures in ziplock bags already stored in tubs, so the modern stuff will suffer the same fate.  But is that good enough for vinty stuff?  I'm not inclined to bubble wrap 100+ figures, but maybe I should? 

Unleashed will turn into a huge pain in the ass I believe.  They're great loose, but how do you move those things in a huge group?    The rest of the stuff isn't so bad, but all of a sudden I have way too much stuff :-\

Anyone ever packed up and moved an entire collection before?  Love to hear some suggestions.  Please.

Still have one around here.  It's in the box and does actually make the sounds (which is better than the one I have at home).  Box is ok, but no way I'd call it mint. 

$5 and shipping.

Watto's Junk Yard / What's the best portable music player out there?
« on: December 26, 2004, 09:31 PM »
Everyone loves their Ipod, no doubt about it.  But recently I've been reading a bit (subjective stuff, nothing definitive) about the Dell Digital Jukebox.  Now RobL chimed in about the Sony Network HD Digital Walkman at 20 GB.  So now we have three choices, all by reputable brand names. 

Not sure on the pricing of the Sony, but Rob's statement
Quote
...but if you will only be recording from CD, want top quality at high compression and you want the smallest HDD player out there at the moment, then go for the Sony).
pretty well describes what I'm after. 

MP3 sounds a little muddy to me, but that might be my Sony MiniDisc player I currently use.  It's nice enough and keeps me happy with the assorted discs I can make for working out, but obviously it is limited.  Is it the player or the format?  Seem to have lost a lot of the dynamic range in the sound?

Ipod's are, obviously, IT right now.  Huge marketing campaign and seemingly, by all reports, a very well made product.  One drawback is that you can only transfer music from one computer once the software is installed, is this indeed the case?  Any conflicts with Windoze software occurring? 

Dell is obviously a huge player and their 20 GB player comes in at about $100 less, not an insubstantial amount.  Is the user interface as friendly as the Ipod?  Oprah  ::) recommends this one, just about enough to send me screaming the other way, but I'll try and keep my biases out of it.  I haven't seen much more than subjective criticism of Dell's player - Dell is a bigger company (???)...copycat...not as well done as Ipod - but nothing that is really based much in fact?  Is the product too new? 

How does the Sony compare?  Aaaaaaargh!  Too many choices.  What sayeth the audiophiles?

Watto's Junk Yard / Trilogies
« on: December 21, 2004, 03:36 PM »
Was reading a review of the latest box set for LOTR-ROTK and the critic stated this was clearly the greatest trilogy of all time.  Now, that got me to thinking - is he right, what are the other trilogies and if he's correct, why? 

I think for continuity, sure, I'll give LOTR the nod.  Consistency as well.  I think arguably I'd agree with him on the whole concept, but only with the recognition that most preceding trilogies did not have the benefit of being filmed in such rapid succession - a trilogy has never before been a forgone conclusion from start to finish. 

Star Wars is the natural comparison of course, and I got the distinct impression that his comment in the article was a veiled shot at Star Wars.  But I consider it unfair.  I recall seeing SW back in 1977 at age 13.  While I certainly saw the possibility of a second movie occurring (Vader's alive?), I did not consider it to be a forgone conclusion.  From the documentaries I've seen, SW was a longshot at best and a tremendous risk for the studio with fairly low expectations on returns.  As such, a comparison with a remarkably well thought out, planned and funded trilogy like LOTR is unfair.  I know Lucas had it thought out as a multi-series set of films, but that was probably not what was in the mind of the studios. 

As far as other trilogies (or multi-series) go, there's more than a few that come to mind, but most, if not all, were not pre-planned. 

Indiana Jones
Blade
Batman
Planet of the Apes
Harry Potter
James Bond - king of the multi-series
Bourne ______ - presumably a trilogy
Austin Powers

What are your thoughts on the topic?  LOTR = greatest?  Is it a fair comparison?  What else is there to compare with?

Watto's Junk Yard / Are there any products you endorse?
« on: December 21, 2004, 11:58 AM »
I don't mean commercially, I mean personally.  As in are there any technologies that you've been pleasantly surprised by or anything that worked in just the manner you expected that you'd recommend? 

I bought my last winter jacket off ebay, a nice Summit Series North Face Gore Tex shell with a fleece jacket inside.  When I got it in the mail, it pretty much fit as expected and I knew Gore-Tex was a good product - breathable and water repellant as expected.  But when I tried on the jacket, the fleece inside was pretty damn thin.   No damn way that would keep me warmn in a Canadian winter.

In the past, I've worn fleece jackets as a layer - they are typically available in 100, 200, 300 weights - the higher the number, the heavier and warmer the fleece is.  The North Face fleece is probably about a 100 weight fleece.  BUT... it has a layer of Gore Windstopper fabric in it. And that's the product I've found a new respect for.  It is not, as I expected, warm enough for winter up here, so I added a 200 weight fleece vest (thanks MEC) underneath and now I'm as cozy as some dumbass Californian thinking it's cold at 60 F.  The windstopper layer does an amazing job of blocking the wind, much better than any conventional fleece jacket.  I first figured this out in Hawaii on top of Haleakala crater, where it was a little cooler and the wind was blowing pretty good, yet I was plenty warm. 

Gore-tex and Gore's Windstopper fabric get my nod of approval.  The former is no surprise, but the latter was to me.

So, anything you folks would stand behind as a quality product? 

111
Not sure how many folks have been paying much attention, but a disproportionately high number of my VOTC stuff has creasing in the cards when viewed from the back. 

I first noticed when I made a trade with a guy for four of them.  I thought maybe he was a bit rough on them (they were packed well, and no, no one from here) but before bitching about it, I checked some of my others.  Lo and behold, a fair few (maybe 30%+) had creasing. 

It's not been devastating, as I have decent copies of each so I've just selected out the worst cards to open, but these were not handled all that carefully when being put in the plastic cases, at least in about 1/3 of the cases.  Most of the damage is lower right hand corner when looking at the back, but I do have a few with creases more than 2 inches long running down the center, not associated with the bubble. 

I've got a pretty good selection to judge from as I have 3 complete sets, plus an extra Chewie and 17 extra stormtroopers to look at.  One set is minty-mint, the second is a little less than perfect, but ok, maybe 2-3 should be replaced.  Third set is openers, so that's cool. 

Anyone else notice this, or have I gone over the edge into absurd pickiness?

Watto's Junk Yard / Tragic news concerning our fearless leader.
« on: November 30, 2004, 01:32 PM »
I know this is hard to believe and it deeply saddens me, but I'm forced to show you what just showed up on the newswire..... :'(

(AP)In news that shocked the Star Wars internet collecting world, the body of Chris Berry was found today in the Ohio countryside.  Berry was well known as the owner and leader of a Star Wars collectible board known as JediDefender.com

His body was found by a passerby walking their dog.  One Mr. Coleman stated that he was just out walking his dog and the dog suddenly became very excited, barking loudly.  When Coleman went to look at what was causing the ruckuss, he found the body.  "It was awful" said Coleman, "not only because, well, it was a dead body, but because it had all sorts of horrible burn marks and holes in the body." 

Police spokespersons were unwilling to comment on the nature of the burns or holes.  They would only comment on the fact that there were numerous suspects.   "There's a lot of unruly behaviour in the internet community" the officer in charge said, adding "no leader of an internet site is without their fair share of enemies." 

When an employee of the site was contacted for comment, one Mr. S. Pearson, he initially refused comments.  But later stated that "y'know, Ohio is really nice this time of year, er, I mean I've never been outside Minnesota!" 

Another staff member, a Mr. M. Colman (not related to the witness Coleman, but quite similar sounding in spite of differences in stature) was reported to be deeply saddened by the news.  What baffled the interviewer was the giggling in the background. 

Suspects were not specifically noted, though there is an international flavor apparently.  Apparently, one of the board "members" is from Canada.  No real name was obtained, but police are very interested in finding this individual.  His "code name" (bunch of ******* geeks) is Koda - apparently some satanic name, relating to an evil band from the 70's that went by the name of Led Zeppelin.  Though police did not reveal the information, there is speculation that satanic marking were found on the body including the word "ZOSO".  As far as motive for the elusive Koda there is the suggestion that he was waiting on some help from Berry and became impatient.  Something to do with "snowtroopers" though no one knows what the hell that means to anyone in the civilized world. 

Also tied into the satanic rumours were suggestions of some sort of voodoo involvement.  Rumour has it that one former board member was recently killed, but has surfaced occasionally in the form of a spectre.  The Ghost of Virex apparently had no love for Berry, as he was not allowed power at the site in question.  Some speculate that the Ghost of Virex came back to exact his due revenge. 

Other rumoured suspects are as follows, all using the ridiculous ::) code names from Jedidefender.com:

Angry Ewok - another staff member.  Apparently the name relates to his hirsuteness, when coupled with his short stature resulting in a less than pleasant demeanor (& odour) and poor taste in star wars characters.

Jokabofe (what the **** does that mean ::)) A disillusioned and bitter toy collector from New York and we know all New Yorkers are involved in some type of crime. 

As well there are numerous suspects from Minnesota, including the aforementioned Pearson.  As police spokespersons put it "you can't trust the people from Minnesota y'know."  "They're just like the folks out in Montana - you can't trust 'em.  Oh sure, they seem all citified and civilized but you know damn well they're drunk most of the time and packing weapons.  Can hardly blame them, what with the cold weather and polar bears and **** like that."

Crime scene investigators let slip some information that the burn marks were consistent with some type of crystal light.  Precisely how that could happen, they were unwilling to speculate. 

Investigations continue.  Berry apparently left behind few friends but plenty of family.  Not all were known to him.

RIP Chris Berry.

(couldn't find a thread, please add to other if it exists). 

Second huge trade with Jim.  Absolutely flawless both times.  31 figures this time around and three boxes back to me from Jim.  Communication is top notch, packing unparalleled.  One of the best of the bunch (and there are a lot in that bunch).

Watto's Junk Yard / Farewell to the old barn.....or....
« on: October 31, 2004, 01:58 AM »
The ramblings of a drunken fool.  Fair first warning, it's not too late to back out.  Go now, before boredom sets in. 

Still here?  Huh, amazing. 

Alright then, second warning.  It's post-midnight here and I just came home from a concert and a bout of drinking.  Stay if you like, but be warned, I'll likely regret posting this in the morning or at the very least be embarassed.  Carry on if you are brave. 

1. The old barn is the old Winnipeg Arena, former home to the Winnipeg Jets of WHA/NHL fame. 

2. The concert was the Van Halen concert, the last major concert at the venue listed in #1. 

So, here I sit, about to type this post/thread, rusty nail (Johnny Walker black and drambuie) and Granville Island Lager at my side.  I'll sleep soundly when this is done, the refreshments will only assist the earlier imbibations in achieving that goal.   I won't wake up nearly so happy, but my hearing certainly will not be intact.  This is your last warning, go away now, if you so choose. 

If not, carry on. 

I have lived in Winnipeg my whole life.  Born, raised and still living here.  As such, the Winnipeg Arena has seemingly played a role in my life.  Not dissimilar to any arena in any other city in North America, it has been host to WHA and NHL hockey; host to concerts of all colour and stripe; WWE (F) wrestling; world curling championships ::); world cup of hockey; world junior hockey.  It is, quite simply put,  a storied old building; not as famous as Boston Garden or the Montreal Forum, or any building of similar age and ilk, but still, it remains a trusted old friend. 

It closes its doors in about a week from now. 

We still have AHL hockey in the form of the Winnipeg Moose.  It's not at all the same as the glory days of the WHA or the fun days of the NHL and the drawing power of the league simply isn't there: they draw maybe 8000 fans a game, pretty pitiful really.  In the NHL days, they drew 12,000+ fans, even in years in which we won only 9 games total in a season.  Pathetic in the scheme of the NHL, but truly a hockey town.  Bitterness towards the departure of the NHL (and Bettman, general peckerhead) remain and impact the attendance of the subsequent team.  That team will move to the new MTS centre, a building that seats about 16,000 with great seats, good site lines and reasonable prices.  Generally speaking, it's a much better building. 

From a concert venue standpoint, it is likely to draw bigger names, more frequently, in a building with better acoustics.  This should lead to more and better concerts.  So all in all, it's a good thing. 

But I can't help feeling sad.   :-\

I don't remember the first time I went to the Winnipeg arena, probably sometime back around 1972 or so, before many of you were even alive, but pegging me at the wise old age of 8.  One of the most memorable hockey games I attended was on my 10th birthday, Quebec Nordiques versus the Winnipeg Jets.  IIRC, both teams sucked for the most part, but I was in my heyday of Canadian boyhood, playing hockey and madly, passionately in love with the game.  The game that evening was attended by my dad and I and I believe the Jets won it about 6-4.  It was not notable in the grand scheme of things, with the exception of the fact that the game took better than four hours to play.  Barbaric to say the least, well over 300 penalty minutes were assessed and the duration of the game was a dream come true to a 10 year old.  I didn't get to bed until probably 11 PM.  The next day I revelled in the fact that the game was high scoring, full of fights (eh?) and I got to stay up super late. 

Many more hockey memories were fostered during the tenure of the old building:  multiple Avco cup trophy wins - Hull, Nilsson, Hedberg; entry into the NHL (finally); Hawerchuk being an amazing player; Jets finish 4th overall, only to lose to the Oilers in the first round (Edmonton finished 1st, Calgary 2nd overall); Selanne's amazing year; the whiteouts that have never been matched; the last regular season game; losing to Detroit in game six of the first round in 1996, a game that never should have happened. 


Concerts were another critical part of my life.  My first concert was around 1976, Alice Cooper's Welcome to My Nightmare tour.  I'm pretty sure my parents didn't know about this one, or they would have put the kibosh on it pretty damn quickly.   Later, early concerts included Nazareth, Styx, CCR and more.  All in all, I saw probably over 100 concerts in the old building.  AS mentioned earlier, the acoustics, to put it mildly, sucked ****.  It was, literally built as a barn, adapted to a hockey rink and made into a concert venue for lack of another suitable sized venue.  Numerous bands refused to tour through Winnipeg because of the ****** sound and sight lines.  Money was there to be made, but they didn't like the venue so didn't come. 

I saw Alice Cooper, Nazareth, Golden Earring, Kick Axe, Quiet Riot (booed off the stage at the height of their popularity - the crowd came to see Whitesnake and a local band, Kick Axe); Motley Crue; Black Crowes (Guns & Roses was the opening act, back in 1986 :o); Styx (Paradise Theatre tour for you old farts); Scorpions (4 x); Iron Maiden 4x - once backing up the Scorpions); Judas Priest (4x); KISS (saw every show); Van Halen (3x); Ozzy Osbourne (3x - both the loudest and the lamest show in terms of volume); Metallica (2x) and so very many more.  Drunkeness and drugs were a part of the culture of the Winnipeg Arena.  Just a fact of life.  I have every ticket stub for every show I attended there.  The list above is pale in comparison to whom I have seen.

I left a University Exam early to see Twisted Sister open up for Iron Maiden :-[;  I passed out during a ZZ Top encore, after being up for 38 + hours pulling an all nighter studying for exams.  My girlfriend (at the time) threw up all over the side of the car following an Alice Cooper concert. 

Alice Cooper has played a pivotal role in my concert going history.  It was my first concert at the Arena, or anywhere else for that matter.   The second time I saw him, the girlfriend blew chunks on the car.  The last time, some few months ago, ironically I had the opportunity to meet with Alice after the show and have his autograph (and yes, a picture) to prove it.  I was sorely tempted to leave the history at that - first and last concert being Alice Cooper.  It may not scare anyone these days, but he did in the day and I appreciate him for it. 

Van Halen was a suitable follow up for the last concert though, and ended the symmetry of seeing Alice, first and last.  The show, while not spectacular, was good.  Sammy Hagar was entertaining; Eddie can still play the guitar like so few others.  The show was loud, energetic and well received.  After the lights came up, Green Day's Time of our Life was playing, the last song I'll ever hear in that building - fitting, ironic and sappy all at once. 

The truly lasting memory I'll have of that building is of the bathrooms though.  Not sure how many places in the sporting universe have trough systems rather than individual urinals though.  In a wave of personal privacy lost forever, at some point in the distant past, some Einstein decided that the human male's need to urinate would easily overpower the need for privacy.  As a result, individual urinals were never installed for the men's bathrooms.  Instead, a long and large "trough" was put in, allowing as many males as could comfortably stand astride one another do so.  They would urinate on the wall, draining into said trough, fed by a constant stream of flush water.  This is an innovation that will never be repeated.  There has never and will never be a line for the men's washroom at the Winnipeg Arena.  Tonight, for example, during the opening act, we stood in the outer area drinking beer and subsequently needed to use the facilities (i.e. trough).  We walked a short ways, passed the lineup for the women's washroom, did our duty and returned to find the women's line had not moved an inch.  Clearly the designers of said facility had drunken men in mind.  A more practical and politically uncorrect decision shall never be made again. 

Anyhoo, if you made it this far, bravo.  Thanks for your attention.  I had need to "verbalize" a fond memory fueled by alcoholic consumption.  Carry on. :) ;)

Watto's Junk Yard / What kind of car would you buy if.....
« on: October 24, 2004, 12:09 AM »
you could spend up to $100,000 and you had to drive the car every day?   You have to pay for the insurance and the gas, etc. 

I went and saw Taxi tonight and really thought the BMW 760 looked pretty sharp.  Not sure of the price, I haven't looked yet. 

I'll have to do some digging for other vehicles, but at the moment I really want an Infiniti G35 two door.  My kids big enough she can crawl into the back through a single door.  All wheel drive, decent economy for the engine, looks pretty sharp.  I'm sure I'll stumble on a more expensive car for fantasy purposes, but right now that one sticks in my mind.   How about you?

Watto's Junk Yard / Anyone been to Hawaii?
« on: October 20, 2004, 10:49 PM »
We're likely going, so I'm looking for suggestions.  I've been before, but always like to hear what other people have done or enjoyed doing. 

Most likely we will go to Maui.  Oahu/Honolulu seem a bit to city-ish and crowded for what we are after.  I know you can get away and I'd really like to spend some (more) time at Pearl Harbor, but with a 4 year old it's probably not going to be really interesting for her.  We'll do it later once she's in school and taking history classes and such. 

So, give me your thoughts please.
