The Purple Pinup Guru Platform

When purple things are pulsating on your mind, I'm the one whose clock you want to clean. Aiding is Sparky, the Astral Plane Zen Pup Dog from his mountain stronghold on the Northernmost Island of the Happy Ninja Island chain, this blog will also act as a journal to my wacky antics at an entertainment company and the progress of my self published comic book, The Deposit Man which only appears when I damn well feel like it. Real Soon Now.

Now that the Political Crap is now out of the way
This Friday the Thirteenth - Rent this!
High School Ghosthustlers:

Schlock-horror-meister Yoshinori Nishikiori has also written and directed the squishily irresistible Bugs! HSGH, though, is his true magnum opus to date. One of the more bizarre live-action series to come out of Japan in recent years, "High School Ghosthustlers" plays like a campy mixture of "Sailor Moon" and "Ghostbusters." The GhostHustlers are three beautiful female students (played by three of Japan's top models), Kyoko, Mayu, and Emi, who fight evil spirits at Onin High School. The GhostHustlers are called into action when their school is invaded by "Erotomaniac Spirits" that have turned the female students into an uncontrollable libidinous frenzy. While this proves to be quite popular with the male students, the school is also being overrun by slimy paranormal creatures. Faced with supernatural foes and the increasing moral turpitude of their students, these three heroines do whatever is needed to save their school. Ghouls just want to have fun!

Ouiji Madness is sweeping Onin High School, destroying the morals of the student body. Senna Matsuda is a ravishing Japanese idol and swimsuit model who tried to make her bigscreen debut with High School Ghost Hustlers. The film seems an amusing and slightly ecchi bit of OV cinema that’s reminiscent of the more innocent days of exploitation filmmaking, when plots were milked for opportunities to show a few breasts but virtue triumphed in the end. Its charm lies in managing to tell a story of sex-crazed Japanese schoolgirls – starring smokin’ hottie Senna Matsuda, no less! – who become possessed by penis slugs, while remaining almost entirely inoffensive. The Tokyopop DVD is currently, and sadly, out of print, but can still be found by scouring the Internet.

Please note the above “straight to video” offering is something you should rent!

- Happy “Friday the 13th” from your pal Sparky
Sparky got a letter from Donna Brazile
that he thought worth sharing:

Hammer the Hammer Fund

In 1994, the Republicans campaigned nationally on the Contract with America, promising high ethical standards and responsiveness to the great citizens of this country. A hard charging, take no prisoners lawmaker named Tom Delay said to the American people November 16, 1995:
"The time has come that the American people know exactly what their Representatives are doing here in Washington. Are they feeding at the public trough, taking lobbyist-paid vacations, getting wined and dined by special interest groups? Or are they working hard to represent their constituents? The people, the American people, have a right to know."
Just Another Hog Ready for the Butchers...

Tom DeLay's friends, calling themselves "the Conservative Movement," are rallying to his side in the only way they seem to know how: a $250 per plate dinner with Republican power brokers and extremist special interests.

In their own "celebration" of DeLay's high achievements in influence peddling, the DCCC is making a special push for the Hammer the Hammer Fund in recognition of his distinguished career - and to help him towards retirement in 2006. Best of all, they'll match every dollar you chip in. That means for every $50 you contribute, $100 goes to defeating Tom DeLay and his friends:
Hammer the Hammer Fund

Since 2003, Tom DeLay and his "movement" have had control over the entire government, and what do they have to celebrate?
  • They worked with Enron and giant oil companies to write an energy bill that does nothing to lower gas prices, and which was described by their fellow conservatives as a "mishmash of corporate giveaways and special interest kickbacks."
  • They passed a Medicare bill that does virtually nothing for seniors and everything for the big drug companies that helped write that bill.
  • And they continue to throw tax breaks to the big special interests hand over fist; even after those policies led to the tragic "jobless recovery" we went through for most of President Bush's first term.
This is what you get from your government when it falls into the clutches of shameless swindlers and large scale cheaters - help the DCCC throw them out on the curb with a matched contribution today:

As for the "saluters," they seem to be offering a new kind of contract - as one of the organizers put it:
"The message is, if you want support from conservatives in the future, you better be in the forefront of those standing beside Tom DeLay."

Looks like old Tom DeLay's gone and taken his party hostage - anybody still wonder why they call him "The Hammer"? Well, if Tom DeLay is the "conservative movement," then that is a sad movement indeed - and certainly nothing to go around celebrating.

Now that the original "Contract" is null and void, it is time to clean up the House of all this garbage, and the only way to do that is to put more Democrats in Congress where they can stop Tom DeLay's pay-to-play racket once and for all.

The people who will do that for us are my friends at the DCCC - so help them celebrate Tom DeLay's career by sending him and his loyal friends packing:

Hammer the Hammer Fund

One wonders what the Dem's strategy of keeping silent in the face of obvious cheating is. He hopes that it doesn't mean they want to subvert it for their own.

Should have been the below:

When Marvel was hot

Sparky thinks all of this fan worship insanity needs a dose of reality. Robert Williams once penned a tale where the so-called hero fantasy movie star was in reality yet another hooker.

IF You See Your PP GURU Wearing The Below Tee — Now You'll Know He's A Closet DD Fan.
Then Again Only A Selfish Fan Wants to do Pregnancy Planning With his Favorite Actress

PP Guru surmises that the hot chick who making headlines this week ( or would that be headlights?) is none other than the always ever pristine Jennifer Garner (other than the piss poor skewered performance of Bigfoot Paris Hilton in House of Wax- see where the PP Guru toldja that she would have Time Warner stock come crashing down).

Now that rumors are flying left and right about Jen getting pregnant with one of Ben Affleck's abhorent abominations, (the PP Guru has a lukewarm atitude when it comes to the six to seven degrees of Ben seperation- he really dug Affleck's performance in Daredevil ... the director's cut, that is; In case anyone hasn't seen it - it's a more tolerable monster than the chop suey edition that was shown theatrically- but yet the B A boy has done some awful stinkers that may cause Milk Dud or Sour Worm regurgitation in the multiplex aisles. Pearl Harbor anyone?) what is this little dodad of a news item gonna to do for the Disney stockholders?

Garner has a contract to do Alias through 2007. And she can't very well go around kicking ninjas and dirty double agents if she's got Ben's abomination doing the watusi in her soon to be demolished beautiful belly.

It's just sacrilege.

This takes the PP Guru through some serious mytol flashbacks when Gillian Anderson, Agent Dana Scully of the X-Files got herself knocked up by a grip guy on the Vancouver set of that show during it's second season - but time as measured by future television season went whizzing by, everything worked right as rain weaving her absence into the show's storylines. But in Garner's case, you can't be doing high flying judo kicks or tucks and rolls and emerging with a .38 cocked and ready to blow some Al Qaeda terrorist's nuts off on a very full stomach and not have people scratching their scalps in befuddlement.

And why now when the show is doing tremendously in the ratings? The risk pulled off by anchoring the show following another J.J. Abraham created show, Lost . Is this Jen's cunning plan to sabotage the show and put her esteemed co-workering cast out of a job?

So why Jen, Why now?

So the PP Guru has a big bit of advice for Jen:


In 2007, you'll still be fertile enough. ~ Coat

PS Sparky offers this Electra Wallpaper as a peace offering to anyone who thinks Cary really wants Jennifer to abort a child.

The PP Guru has been having shitloads of trouble with this blog's postings. It's buggerfuck with the reasons why some entries are being cut in half - mixed up links and etc. He's doesn't have a preschool panty clue as to what the fuck is going on.

But the blog life goes on.

The PP Guru hasn't been getting a lot accomplished in terms of keeping the recordal of events timely- shit, he still hasn't had time to reflect on his near narrow escape from the Spock's Beard show last month.

The PP Guru also wanted to expand on last Saturday's Free Comic Book Day - but SOL on that too.

But the PP Guru does have an obligation to provide the weekly Strange Stirrings Below the Belt. You can bet your sweet thong hanging asscheeks that is a mandatory weekly requirement . The PP Guru took the oath for that.

But now, the PP Guru has a date and doesn't have time for this minuscle bullshit.

Adventure on!

(The PP Guru sure hopes that a certain former comix ace colleague isn't reading this.)

Sparky says:
Tell Them The Truth — They've got Bupkis.

Sir Moses Montefiore
According to an apocryphal account, Sir Moses Montefiore is
supposed to have been confronted by an anti-Semitic member
of the House of Lords at a state function, who informed him
that he had recently returned from Japan, "where they have
neither pigs nor Jews." Montefiore is alleged to have responded
"in that case, you and I should both go there, and then they shall
have one of each."

I'm counting on all the PP Guru readers being hip to my earlier rant on "Baby J" — Xtians are sometimes puzzled and hurt by the allergic reaction of us Jews to “Jesus” -- even to the mention of his name. But the energy is not really to “Jesus” the person, about whom Jews (like everyone else), know very little, but to his appropriation by the church and the oppression of Jews in his name.

The Other Albert
Albert Schweitzer
The quest for the historical “Jesus” has gone on for about three centuries with no success. Now, the classical study was done by Albert Schweitzer in his book, "The Quest of the Historical Jesus" — What he showed was that from the 18th century on, the attempt to find out who “Jesus” really was had been conditioned all the way through by the needs and wants and desires of the people who were writing the Gospels.

Funny thing is no one wants to admit they have bupkis here. Nada. Nothing. And certainly “human framework” to hang the myth on. there's really very little that we can know in a firm historical sense about the real “Jesus” as he is nonexistent. We really are only seeing the wake of the myth fashioned by Paul.

Franz Rosenzweig when asked what Jews thought about “Jesus,” he answered simply, "They don't. " But in regard to the historical “Jesus,” the same thing could be said about Xtians.

The historical information about “Jesus,” therefore, is precious to me as a way of understanding not just the historical puzzle about this “whisper campaign gone awry,” but also to understand the nature of the source religion and of its varieties. Modern scholars have routinely reinvented “Jesus” or have routinely rediscovered in “Jesus” that which they want to find, be it rationalist, liberal Christianity of the 19th century, be it apocalyptic miracle workers in the 20th, be it revolutionaries, or be it whatever it is that they're looking for, scholars have been able to find in “Jesus” almost anything that they want to find.

Yet Jews have also been fascinated by the “Jesus” myth. When Jews began to think about their own history, they had to consider him as part of its' baggage. Nineteenth-century scholars who investigated “Jesus” included the Jewish historians Heinrich Graetz and Abraham Geiger. Claude Montefiore wrote a two-volume commentary on the Synoptic gospels in the early part of this century, and What A Jew Thinks about Jesus, published in 1935. Joseph Klausner wrote Jesus of Nazareth in Hebrew in 1922. Translated into several languages, it is still the best-know book on “Jesus” by a Jew. The present generation draws a bold line between “Jesus” as Jew and Christianity's picture of him. Just as earlier generations of scholars often separated “Jesus” from his Judaism, present-day scholars, Jewish and Christian, both distance him from the Christianity that claimed him. Jewish writers — when coerced under the gun to tell fundamentalists their myth was real — often characterized him as simply another unexceptional Jewish holy man, beyond his later public-relations image first created by Paul, or so unlike Jewish expectations of a Messiah as to make his lack of acceptance by most early Jews utterly unsurprising.

Honestly, even if all the hoopla was about a real person, he'd simply be yet another "failed messiah" versus the harsher "phony messiah" skeptical historians label him. If you want a person considered to be a messiah (or annointed leader) that would be Simon Bar Kokhba.

The Jewish sage Rabbi Akiva convinced the Sanhedrin to support the impending revolt and regarded the chosen commander Simon Bar Kokhba the Jewish Messiah, according to the verse from Numbers 24:17: "There shall come a star out of Jacob" ("Bar Kokhba" means "son of a star" in Aramaic language).

Due to the failure of the earlier Great Jewish Revolt in the eastern Roman provinces, Bar Kokhba's support was mostly limited to the Roman province of Judea. Despite some initial successes, his revolt was brutally crushed by Emperor Hadrian: Bar Kokhba and his followers were killed in a dramatic last stand at the fortress of Betar, southwest of Jerusalem. Many of his supporters were executed, among them Rabbi Akiva. Nevertheless, it was a costly victory for Rome, and the generals, when reporting to the Senate, did not begin with the customary greeting: "I and my troops are well." After Bar Kokhba's defeat, Jerusalem was razed, Jews were forbidden to live there, and a new Roman city, Aelia Capitolina, was built in its place.

Over the past few decades, much new information about the revolt has come to light, thanks mainly to the discovery of several collections of letters, some possibly by Bar Kokhba himself, in the caves overlooking the Dead Sea. These letters can now be seen at the Israel Museum.

At the time, Christianity was still a minor sect of Judaism and most historians believe that it was this messianic claim that alienated many Christians (who believed that the true messiah was Jesus) and sharply deepened the schism.

The Jewish leaders carefully planned the second revolt to avoid numerous mistakes that plagued the first one sixty years earlier. In 132 CE, it quickly spread from Modi'in across the country, cutting off the Roman garrison in Jerusalem.

Remember the real messiah will fulfill all of the below in his first visit:
  • The Sanhedrin will be re-established. (Isaiah 1:26)
  • Once he is King, leaders of other nations will look to him for guidance. (Isaiah 2:4)
  • The whole world will worship the One God of Israel. (Isaiah 2:17)
  • He will be descended from David HaMelech (Isaiah 11:1) via Solomon (1 Chron. 22:8-10)
  • The Moshiach will be a man of this world, an observant Jew with “fear of God” (Isaiah 11:2)
  • Evil and tyranny will not be able to stand before his leadership. (Isaiah 11:4)
  • Knowledge of God will fill the world (Isaiah 11:9)
  • He will include and attract all cultures and nations (Isaiah 11:10)
  • Jews will have returned to their homeland (Isaiah 11:12)
  • He will swallow up death forever (Isaiah 25:8)
  • There will be no more hunger or illness, and death will cease (Isaiah 25:8)
  • All of the dead will rise again (Isaiah 26:19)
  • The Jewish people will experience eternal joy and gladness (Isaiah 51:11)
  • He will be a messenger of peace. (Isaiah 52:7)
  • Nations will end up recognizing the wrongs they did Israel (Isaiah 52:13-5)
  • For My House shall be called a house of prayer for all the nations (Isaiah 56:3-7)
  • The peoples of the world will turn to the Jews for spiritual guidance (Zechariah 8:23)
  • The ruined cities of Israel will be restored (Ezekiel 16:55)
  • Weapons of war will be destroyed (Ezekiel 39:9)
  • The Temple will be rebuilt (Ezekiel 40) resuming many of the suspended mitzvos
  • He will then perfect the entire world to serve God together, as it is written (Zephaniah 3:9)
  • Jews will know the Torah without Study (Jeremiah 31:33)
  • He will give you all the desires of your heart (Psalms 37:4)
  • He will take the barren land and make it abundant & fruitful (Isaiah 51:3, Amos 9:13-15, Ezekiel 36:29-30, Isaiah 11:6-9)
To paraphrase Maimonides who wrote why Jews believe that Paul of Tarsus was wrong to create Christianity (and why they believe that Mohammad was wrong to create Islam) he laments the pains that Jews felt as a result of these new faiths that attempted to supplant Judaism. However, Maimonides then goes on to say that both faiths help God redeem the world.
As for Paul of Tarsus, who claimed “Yeshua of Nazareth” to be the anointed one who was killed by the Roman court, Daniel had already prophecied about him, thus: "And the children of your people's rebels shall raise themselves to set up prophecy and will stumble" (Ibid. 14). Can there be a bigger stumbling block than this? All the Prophets said that the Anointed One saves Israel and rescues them, gathers their strayed ones and strengthens their mitzvot whereas this one caused the loss of Israel by sword, and to scatter their remnant and humiliate them, and to change the Torah and to cause most of the world to erroneously worship a god besides the Lord. But the human mind has no power to reach the thoughts of the Creator, for His thoughts and ways are unlike ours. All these matters of “Jeshua of Nazareth” and of Mohammed who stood up after him are only intended to pave the way for the Anointed King, and to mend the entire world to worship God together, thus: "For then I shall turn a clear tongue to the nations to call all in the Name of the Lord and to worship him with one shoulder.

How is this? The entire world had become filled with the issues of the Anointed One and of the Torah and the Laws, and these issues had spread out unto faraway islands and among many nations uncircumcised in the heart, and they discuss these issues and the Torah's laws. These say: These Laws were true but are already defunct in these days, and do not rule for the following generations; whereas the other ones say: There are secret layers in them and they are not to be treated literally, and the Messiah had come and revealed their secret meanings. But when the Anointed King will truly rise and succeed and will be raised and uplifted, they all immediately turn about and know that their fathers inherited falsehood, and their prophets and ancestors led them astray.

Mostly I'm rambling again but I am tempted to show the attempted Mongol Invasion of Japan was actually "Jew on Jew" violence - Sparky

PS Wishing I had a good scan of Sean Kelly and Neal Adam's Son O' God Comics.
PPS Never forget that the KJV version of Daniel and Isaiah are sort of tainted and bad. They have errors and edits to make Xtians look better.

During the course of a funhouse excursion of a restless sleep due to The PP Guru being just a tad perturbed over hearing various news reports of two little girls, ages 8 - 9 ( it's seems that the PP GURU can not fall into the land of nod without a all night radio news station blaring on the dial - who else is there to take the steady pulse of the world while other the unsafe denizens are hibernating behind triple bolted doors?) discovered out in Zion, Illinois both found brutally stabbed multiple times that he couldn't help but toss and turn thinking how the world could really use a concerned citizen ... er, or make that to be politically correct, a real life mercenary named Jon Sable.

Why was the PP Guru thinking of the equally increasing melancholic Jon Sable during a troubling time such as this?

Well, the PP Guru is going to have to purge his memory banks to sometime in the mid to late eighties when the PP Guru was first exposed to IDW publishing answered the four color clarion call by unleashing the first brand new Jon Sable mini-series of this century, Jon Sable: Bloodtrail and and the PP Guru supposes that it's no coincidence that the first issue opens up with Jon saving a little girl from the clutches of some nasty terrorists/kidnappers, before ascending into political strife that's currently keeping up with the times. Although, it's a little bit pricey for a thirty-two page book ($3.99? jeez, the PP Guru can cut down and pulp a tree himself for that much dinero), The PP Guru does intend to keep a watchful eye on it just to see if Grell can address this terrible academic of innocent kids being slaughtered left to right. Because the PP Guru has some major anger management issues when it comes to this subject.
According to yesterday's the Randi Rhodes show aired during the drive time period on Air America Radio, Randi discussed something she had heard on last weekend's MEET THE PRESS on how some general was explaining that Georgie Girl Bushie once gave the order to him to capture Osama Bin Laden and to decapitate the heads of him and his fellow Al Qaeda lieutenant buddies to skewer them onto pikes just. Like you would on a shish-ka-bob and then pack them all in boxes of dry ice and have them shipped to the White House so they can be mounted as mantlepieces at a state dinner or something of the sort.

The PP Guru apologizes for not taking sufficent notes or finding the proper links, for he only heard snippets of the conversation and couldn't remember the name of the general who was yapping his gums.

There must been some lover spat or miscommunication on behalf of Drydrunk Georgie - maybe the attention whores were so restless on that day- 'cause we both know how tight both Ossamie and Georgie are these days - they're practically Texas trout fishing buddies and the PP Guru still hears that they are still co-oping that lovely Sultan air base out in Saudia Arabia.

And where the fuck would someone find dry ice out in the middle of Afganistan anyway?

Nice war we're having, aren't we?

Yesterday, the PP Guru tried to walk you through a cornucopia of bountiful goodies that he received from the Academy of Science Fiction and Fantasy for services rendered on some consulting he did for them. For some unfathomable cyber jetisoned reason - half of his entry got whittled in half by some unseen chicken robot blog editor.

What the PP Guru tried to explain to you yesterday before he was rudely whittled in half was that he went comic book store and bar hopping in the West LA area in door to door promotion of Cary Coatney's latest completed mini-series, the Deposit Man & the Last Great Gate of Mortality - which he hasn't had time to promote since the last APE shit fiasco last month.

And over the coarse of time the PP Guru has learned that comic books and alcohol don't mix. Try and read portions of Alan Moore's penned Swamp Thing after a couple of two quart bottles of King Cobra Malt liquor if you don't believe him.

He could tell that he went a little overboard at the Frisky Kitty the previous night before because he woke up that morning on his Rob Liefeld wee-wee pad in a pile of his own puke, but luckily, his plastic bag of goodies remained unscathed.

Fortunely, there were a few treasures in this year's outing- 15 pristine copies were picked up from Hi-De-Ho Comics in Santa Monica, Ca by the PAP Guru this time simply because they had advertised a big comic book gobbling soiree that was going to take place when they had a tent set up at the Los Angeles Times sponsored Festival of Books a couple of weeks ago. They were a few others he could've snatched up but on second look- they looked like as if there were leftover from last year.

I wish the PP Guru could say that there was a panoply of books to choose from but sadly, they were mostly DC and Marvels. No alternatives selections from Oni, Top Shelf or Fantagraphics to scarf up or were already sold out....., er, I mean given out, so the PP Guru had to make do with what was available.

So far the PP Guru hasn't been disappointed with the prize booty he has read with the exception of the Marvel Comics debut issue of Arana in the revamped Amazing Fantasy 1. Hi De Ho should have took a Butane torch to the entire stock that was left. It was giant-size load of shit with all the gaseous trimmings- as typical with most Marvel products these days.

But not to sound too cynical - but the best issue the PP Guru has read in this pile was an Archie comic. Now the PP Guru doesn't like to admit that he has a soft spot for Archie Andrews and the rest of his Riverdale High delinquent degenerates because he doesn't his fellow breathren to think that he's the Pink Pinup Guru on the inside - if you know what I mean. This issue they gave out of Archie was a total joy to read because it featured a lot of inside jokes and knee slappers on the comic book industry that the PP Guru felt that few were privy to know. It also featured, of what the PP Guru would assume to be- the second cameo appearance in a Archie Publication of the late King of Melrose Ave, Bill Liebowitz, founder of the Golden Apple chain of stores in Los Angeles. Other reputable comic book retailers making appearances were Joe Field of Flying Colors and Buddy Saunders of Lone Star Comics along with little cameos from noted creators like Stan Lee, Joe Kubert, and Colleen Doran all rendered in the inaffable Dan DeCarlo style. The story is called "I Was a Teenage Comic Book Character" and mainly it deals with Archie trying to break into the comic book industry through a series of misadventures and parodies of many components in the genre including a manga and the Legion of Super-Heroes. The PP Guru had an enjoyable time reading this while sipping on a Green Tea Clorox smoothie over at Jamba Juice. Certainly a wonderful read.

Another gem that garnered the PP Guru's attention was Marvel's main offering of their all ages title, Marvel Adventures which featured a updated retelling of Spider-Man's first encounter with the Fantastic Four and the team up to round up the quick change artist/super spy, The Chameleon. The PP Guru felt mostly the story was a ho hum pedestrian affair (do we really need remakes in the comic book industry? Don't we have enough problems in the film industry with the constant barrage of remakes?) - BUT was more bowled over by the back up feature on how a regular everyday Marvel comic is produced from beginning to end. The PP Guru felt that it was very admirable of a money sucking entity such as Marvel to give a FREE LESSON into what goes into creating the comic book that the readers are holding in their hands.Education is the only godamn way to do in this business nowadays- it almost maked the PP Guru to want to apologize for the previous paragraph....but he won't. The only caveat or a bone that the PP Guru has to pick is with the offered lesson and glossary is how much comic book conglomerates dismiss the notion that the glorious days of actual real life human beings of flesh and blood are not regarded as colorists in this day and age. They have all been assimulated as computer software programs these days. Those long thrilling days of Dr. Martin dyes and color have now been placed on the dusty shelf along with other relics such as parachute pants and mood rings.

Other little gems picked up were

from Wildstorm:

The Twilight Experiment # 1
Smax 1
Terra Obscura #1


Doom Patrol 1 (the PP Guru didn't bother with the official DC Free Comic Book Day edition of the BATMAN STRIKES - because the PP Guru can't tolerate this bastardization of an animated series. Don't get the PP Guru all in a hemorraging hatemongering tangent over it. Search previous entries for his malignant hurtful remarks of this show).

Swamp Thing Vol 3 1


Marvel Knights Spider-Man 1
Crimson Dynamo 1
Rogue 1
Mary Jane 1

Old 1992 failed Malibu comic book of Tarzan the Warrior

Wizard Magazine Top 100 Trade Paperbacks of All Time

and a Betty & Veronica.

Sometime last week, The PP Guru was whining on Heidi MacDonald's blog about how he was getting no pittance nor recogniztion for pitch hitting ideas to the Saturn Awards committee- not even a nod towards 'creative consultant'. Two of the PP Guru's fellow minions happen to be on that committee and usually get to help out with the ceremony and hang out with some of the presenters that include Ron Perlman, Ben Browder, Claudia Black, Christina Carpenter, and a whole slew of others. The PP Guru doesn't like to shimmer in the limelight in a small trail of accomplishments, so rather ramble on and on how unapprecative his contributions don't matter a swinging dick - lo and behold, a surprise was left on his desk by members of the Vamp N.R.G

2 20oz bottles of the campanion drink, Dracola.

2 copies of Vertical Coffin paperbacks written by Stephen J. Cannell

2 copies of The Amityville Horror Conspiracy written by Stephen Kaplan Ph.D; with Roxanne Salch Kaplan.

1 copy of Blood Will Tell by Jean Lorrah.

1 copy of this June's Sci-Fi Channel Magazine (official sponsor of the Saturn Awards)

1 copy of this June's Cinefantastique Magazine.

1 copy of May-June's Femme Fatales Magazine with the ever luscious Elisha Cuthbert on the cover.

1 box of Rasinets.

1 Double Dvd set of the AMC Monsterfest Collection featuring Bela Lugosi (4 films - The Ape Man, Devil Bat , The Human Monster, & White Zombie)

1 DVD of The Collective - A cosmic film anthology.

2 DVD copies of the 1983 Rock & Rule animated film directed by Clive Smith.

1 XXL black t-shirt of the Outer Limits.

and lastly....

1 very cool looking Outer Limits - mousepad.

Fuck, with all this loot, who really needs a Whitman's Sampler?

See- it does pay to suggest to a voting committee that CSI can be considered in a best outstanding special effects in a Sci-Fi tv-show category. They may have laughed at first, but....

Tomorrow, The PP Guru is going to go over the free comic book day portion of our program.
