Happy Hallowe'en!

it's a happy Hallowe'en here in Paradise!

i've had this odd experience- i still have two more episodes to watch, but somehow i don't want to finish the series. i think that would also then mean i really had to bear down and finish the book.

so i better get on with it!

more and more

getting more and more cool stuff to add to the book. so far, it's still just 32 pages, so i think i have some room to add some cool scans from old tv guides about what was on the telly at the same time Marine Boy aired. there were a couple of years that had some great lineups to watch in the mornings and afternoons- you could watch Marine Boy, Speed Racer, Ultraman, Batman, DC Super Hero cartoons, Spider-man and more in a single day.

it's kind of depressing now to think NONE of those shows are aired at all any more. good thing more and more of these are coming out on DVD. here's hoping that my book will inspire a release of Marine Boy!

i've also done some more good screen grabs, which i can now pepper the book with, and if they are small, they look better!

good news, i got the replacement disc in and can watch the Final Four episodes. these are from the place i recommend, which is the best place to get 'em. more expensive, but worth it. so i'm back to writing after a bit of a break. and i've accidentally learned how to format the book, which really helps.

so far the book is a whole 32 pages long. i expect it to be at least 50 by the time i get done. not including front and back covers. i'll be adding some screen captures and other pictures. not a lot of promotional material about for Marine Boy.

i think i'm supposed to have a photo for the back cover, and a blurb about me. perhaps i'll get one of Dacya and i for it.

no real news recently, i am still waiting for my replacement disc of Marine Boy. it's a drag, but since they are free, i can't really complain. and i really need to get some of the credits and things done. just been concentrating on other things at this point.

that's a bad excuse, eh? i'd be worried if someone were reading this...

doggone it, i do have something cool to embed here, but i don't seem to be able to do that. well, go here for something fun! it's the video promo for Marine Boy- well, i doubt it was video back then, a real film promo sent out to sell the series.

the cover

my friend Mike is doing the cover of the book for me, and he sent me a preliminary sketch for it. i think he's got the exact feel of the show down, so ima do a sketch for him how i see the cover should be, and he and i will collaborate on the final deal.

now i just have to figure out the title, and do that. oh, the cover is on the site. do i have that linked here?

a minor setback

i have four episodes left to watch, and the first two in that set will not play in my machine. i had wondered about that disc, since it was one of the first i ever made with my recorder.

so now i'm in the process of getting it replaced. hopefully it will come from here, the best place i've seen online. i know for sure their Prince Planet episodes are awesome in quality!

it's a bummer, but it's only the last four episodes, so i can call Corinne and talk to her in the near future. i hope that goes as well as the interview with Peter. what a great guy he is!

down to 7

down to seven episodes left, and that seems so short now. i'll miss Marine Boy and Neptina and the rest of their friends. but i'll also be glad that part is done, so i can sit back and just WATCH the episodes again.
though i will need some screen captures from a few episodes as well. good thing they look a lot better in b/w and small.
