I bought it as well. It looks like the first 13 episodes of season 1.
I have not been able to find Family Guy. I want that DVD set.


Family Guy comes out April 30th, which can't come soon enough  ;D

Where's the best place to get them?

Any large scale book store like Barnes and Noble, Borders, etc. should have a fairly decent collection of TPBs.  They're usually near the science fiction section of the store.

In addition to what Brad said, I would also recommend looking into TPBs of the Rogue Squandron comics.  The whole run should be out in TPB now (except the first arc, Rebel Opposition)

If you're into a sometimes humorous look at the Star Wars universer as told by different authors, I suggest also picking up Tales.  Its produced quarterly (issue 16 came out last week), but there are 2 or 3 TPBs out now that reprint the earlier works.  Some issues are not as good as others, but there a quite a few excellent stories in them.

I don't know if you're really into comic books at all, but the Clone Wars stories in Republic and accompanying one shots are excellent.  It might be worth it to add them to you're monthly list (if indeed you read comics)

Hope this helps  ;D

Watto's Junk Yard / Top 500 Alternative Songs Ever
« on: March 25, 2003, 12:40 PM »
My local radio station (FNX 101.7) ran their Top 500 Alternative Songs Ever over the weekend.  Click on the link for the complete list:

There are songs that I have not heard in years.  I kind of had the feeling Nirvana was going to be #1.  Its a great list for fans of alternative music and a great starting point for anyone interested in some downloading.

Thoughts?

If that's correct, then here goes:

What size pumps did Corporal Max Klinger wear on M*A*S*H?

3 Part Question  :)

Who was Rowdy Roddy Piper's tag team partner in the Wrestlemania I? Who did they spar with? And who were the referees.

(Very Surreal if you ask me :P)

Mr. Wonderful Paul Orndorff / RRP vs. Hulk Hogan / Mr. T.  Muhammand Ali was the special guest ref.  Piper / Orndorff was accompanied to the ring by Cowboy Bob Orton.  Superfly Jimmy Snuka accompanied Hogan / BA Barracus.

Mine is the number of my favorite Nascar driver, Robby Gordon, driver of the Chevy Monte Carlo Cingular Wireless car.

It used to be the Patriots logo, but now that football season is over, I decided to switch to my current fav sport.  Once baseball season starts I'll probably switch it to the logo of the perpetually cursed BoSox.

Last month's Playboy (not the one with Carmen Electra on the cover) had the women of Spanish TV in it.  Very nice indeed.

It does add a feel of community.

Mikey or Mike is fine, but never Michael.  Only the wife calls me that.

I think a very overlooked collectible line is the Applause figural mugs...
Oh yeah, I forgot about these.  Good call Mike.  They are pretty nice - too nice to be drinking coffee out of for me!  I've got about 8 of these, all OT characters.  I can't recall the total number that were made, but I think I'm still missing at least 4 from the OT...

Matt, here's the OT mugs.  The only one missing is the Luke Skywalker Jedi.  Him and Obi Wan were the hardest to track down.

And mine have never seen the sweet delicious brew of the coffee bean.  That's what my New England Patriots Super Bowl Champions mug is for  ;)

I think a very overlooked collectible line is the Applause figural mugs.  I received one for Xmas one year and then had to have them all.  Unfortunely, mine are all boxed away (as is most of my stuff) but I have big plans for them once I get my own home.  I've been eyeing this wood shoe rack at Target (think cubby style) that would be perfect for displaying these.  I think each mug in its own cubby would look awesome.  Applause only made three for E1 (Jar Jar, Maul and R2) and then went defunct, I believe.  Some other company picked up the mantle for AOTC, but only made Jango and Clonetrooper.  I would love to see these make a return.

Just checked the other lists, and Mikey D is right on target with his choices!  As long as Mike can take a Treadwell Droid instead of Dannik Jerikko, he should be a happy man, assuming Hasbro does what it's told, and uses MY list!   8)   ;)

I must say that some folks around here are getting a tad bit overzealous with their choice of "10" figures though.  This ain't 10 Cinema Scenes or dioramas guys!  Gotta narrow a few of those lists down, eh.   :P

Hasbro should just package the treadwell droid with Dannik and we'll both be happy.  It can be from the ultra rare never before seen footage of when Dannik stopped by Luke's place for a smoke.  ;)

I'd be all over a Seinfeld DVD as well as Cheers...my two favorite shows of all time behind the Simpsons :p

Thanks for the Link Mikey, I'll check it out

Ask and you shall receive.  Cheers season 1 is coming in May
