In an effort to finish behind Nate (The All-Powerful Urine Toast) in volume
(see, I really do know how to spell it) and save people's delete fingers, I
am consolidating my posts into one.
Very Obscure Groo Sighting: I was given a Flyer for the January 6, 1985
Los Angelos Comic Book & Science Fiction Convention that has a neat Groo
drawing on it. There is a little almost completed scene of Groo charging
into battle with Sergio finishing the drawing while Mark is writing the
dialogue in the cartoon bubble. I'm sure there are a bunch of Groo
sightings like this one that I will never know about. Groo Sergio & Mark
were the focus of the Con.
I also received an article from the CBG #568, October 5, 1984, which
discusses the transfer of the Special from Pacific to Eclipse. Nothing
Mark hasn't told us before, but its still kinda cool. (Ruben, I'll send
you a photocopy)
Re: Dr. Dean Adell & Baseball hats: For some of us, it is a purely
academic question. (Someday I should regale you all with the lyrics I
wrote to the tune of the Garth Brooks
song "I've Got Friends in Wrong Places" which I call "I've Got Hair in
Wrong Places" .......
Or maybe not.)
Re: Urine Toast & Ebay: Deny it all you want Nate. Excuse me, Mr.
Urineto...er.. Piekos, um Mr. Piekos. I just checked, and there STILL
haven't been any new Groo or Aragones ebay entries since 7:20 testerday
morning! Man, that is power!
Re: Grooism & School Names: We had something similar happen at my school,
UPS (University of Puget Sound) At that time, we had a prof. in the Art
Department who was world famous for the very large pots that he threw.
Anyone who knows about pottery knows it is difficult to throw a 4-5 foot
pot. His name was F.C. Ball and the very unofficial name of the ceramics
building was "Ball Hall". Meanwhile one of the major benefactors of the
school was a guy named Norton Clapp and there was talk of naming a new
building after him. Well, the powers that be were already upset that we
had a building refered to as Ball Hall and they decided they just could not
deal with having Ball Hall and the Clapp Building on the same campus.
