today i learned that my uncle (who you probably know as Biff Tannen) has a voice part in the spongebob movie (not to mention a host of other projects i haven't been keeping myself well-informed enough to know about). truth be told, i probably won't go see it, as a half-hour episode is about my spongebob tolerance limit, but that's still cool.

(google also just taught me there's a punk band by the name of Biff Tannen. props to them.)

then i went and checked out his website, and learned he's taken up painting (genre: pop-culture impressionism). part of me wants a signed print of the Pit Bull*, and the other part wants to build a lifesize replica out of MDF just because i know i could get him to sign that.

_sigh_ i really miss that "wing" of my family. A, i hope you'll pass that on to the rest of them for me; it's been way too long.

*the Pit Bull was that bad-ass snarling black hoverboard he rode in BTTF2- i'd provide a link but after ~90 seconds i decided there was something morally wrong with url-hacking a family member's website, so go look yourself

to bad you couldn't get him to sign a back to the future 8x10 with some catchy biff saying. :P

actually, i used to have a signed glossy mad dog tannen 8x10. and on the same trip down to LA, i met sugar ray leanord and got a signed photo from him too. but that was ~10 years ago and i have no clue where they are now.

yeah, it is. it's fun once every decade or so, though.

I like the view master one. view masters seem to be a reoccuring theme in my life lately.

glad to contribute.

once when i was down at said uncle's house for xmas, little brother got the most hardcore viewmaster i've seen, before or since.

i don't remember how it worked, but there was an audio track recorded on the wheel with beeps to indicate when to go to the next slide- so it told a story instead of just showing you pictures. my favorite was the scooby doo one.

I'm glad that someone else has the same tolerance limit of spongebob as I do. I can make it through one episode (barely) and I've had enough. I couldn't stand a whole damn movie..

i just read that, and it made me smile.
i am assuming i am "A" and i am to pass this on to my family, which i will do.
