Today’s Drama has some content that is indeed questionable.
We also found out today that Palisades is pretty dead. We all saw this coming, sadly, but it still sucks. Seriously, I was gonna buy their Sesame Street stuff. I had the biggest hard-on for it. Here’s a story my dad can confirm (Hi, Dad): When I was a little kid, I loved Sesame Street. With a fanatical fervor. My grandparents had lots of spare wood in their garage, so every time I visited, I would assemble the Sesame Street sign/lamp post out of it. Repeatedly. Eventually out of anything available. Remember Close Encounters of the Third Kind? The making of the Devil’s Tower out of mashed potatoes? Yeah, I was that crazy about that damn sign. I think I had Aspergers.
It got to the point where I was in like first grade, and I was still so hung up on Sesame Street that my mom actually bought me every Transformer we saw. Well, she sure got me out of Sesame Street. But damned if I ever got out of Transformers.
But anyway. There was a Sesame Street playset diarama that Palisades was going to sell with the first wave of figures. It had The Sign. I was going to buy the fuck out of it. But Palisades is dead. Apparently they sold way too much stuff that only one person (like me) wanted. Damn.
I hear they did Transformers statues, too. You know, based on the Pat Lee look. Yeah, things weren’t going so well for them. Sucks, ‘cuz I bet they hired all sorts of cool people. Oh, and the biggest tragedy, I’m sure, is that I mention them in, like, a strip next week. In the present tense. I guess I’ll have to rewrite it. Sucks to be me.
