The Man of Wax

As I mentioned before, I am in the astoundingly time consuming process of going through my old tapes and pictures taken on various shoots from the last several years.

I stumbled across some pictures of the Superman wax statue and movie costume that were on display at the "Palace of Wax & Ripley's Believe it...or Not!" in Grand Prairie, TX.It's not the best likeness of Christopher Reeve but it's not the worst either.

We took these pictures while shooting a segment for "North Texas Explorer."

We shot part of the documentary in Oklahoma which has been home to a surprising amount of comic book writers and artists like Chester Gould ("Dick Tracy") and Archie Goodwin (legendary editor and both DC and Marvel). Who knew?

Color Blind

I found a "fail" in the toy aisle. Good times.
It's always important to read the "ingredients" on the package of what you buy but sometimes it just doesn't help.

A Tribute to Robots: A Robot Tribute

For some reason Blogger won't let me upload any videos so we're going back to our YouTube roots for a Tribute to Robots.

When you drive around to many, many places in order to shoot video for various documentaries you are bound to run into a robot or two. This video is a loving tribute to many of the robots I have met in my travels.

Look! Up in the Sky! What the Hell is That?

What if I told you a giant 40-foot-long iguana flew from New York to Texas? Now is that something you might be interested in?
