Before I Forget...

A bunch of things are going on here. I just joined Facebook in order to see pictures and stuff from an old college friend. Either he doesn't have much up, or I don't really know my way around Facebook. Not that the two are mutually exclusive. But anyway, if you're on Facebook please feel free to friend me and we'll see what we shall see.

On Friday while getting ready to take the tiara photo, my tripod let go of my camera. It fell to the floor with a resounding thud and I haven't been able to get it to work since. I haven't given it a good going over yet, but fear the worst. Luckily I had my webcam to take the shot, but I may go into withdrawal without my regular camera. I am not quite ready to get the cameras I want (yes, plural) but may have to get the small portable one just to feed my habit. Maybe the next item will provide me with funds to get the bigger, semi-pro camera I also would like.

I am going for a job interview for a State position on the 24th. It is not my dream job, but it would be better than 2 part time jobs, one of which I dislike greatly. And it would get my foot in the door for all the current-State-employees-only jobs I see listed a lot. Wish me luck.

Meanwhile, in Tarzan news, Darkhorse Comics is releasing hardcover reprints of the early Dell Tarzan comic books. The first one is out and available on for less than cover. I think the $50 book was listed at about $35. I will definitely be getting this, and the next several at least. I have a lot of Tarzan comics, but the early years are not well represented in my collection.

And I rejoined the Yahoo group that posts scans of Tarzan comics. I have started saving the scans to my computer rather than just reading them. I had planned on printing out the ones I didn't own and putting them into my comic collection, but never did bring a list of what I had in to work where I had access to a color printer. Now I think I will just save them to disk and not worry about having more paper cluttering up the house.

As big a fan of Tarzan as I am, I'm surprised that the only time I seem to draw the character is for the rare occasion when I'm doing a special envelope with some connection I can pull to him. And that hasn't happened more than a half dozen times.


  1. There are a LOT of Kieth O'Briens in Facebook. There is ONE Jack D. Fulkerson in Phoenix in Facebook (case sensitive).

    Need more info on your side or you could try connecting to me from your side.


  2. And probably even more Keith O'Briens...

    I think there were only two in Maine when I looked. And the other one was in Portland. I have a picture of me that I had in an earlier blog post up as my Facebook photo, so that should also help.

    But it will be even easier if I just try to friend Jack D. Fulkerson...

  3. That's a nice Tarzan illustration but his elephant seems somewhat disgusted by Dumbo's antics.
