    Looks like I missed another great show :cry: , wish I could have made it, but you know the deal. Congrats to Rich for some amazing vinyl, Scott & Lauren for another FANTASTIC SHOW, and of course Terell, for wining that great prize :shock: . (and yes Judy & I miss you & the guys too)

    Great pics, guys!

    Lauren and I wanted to thank everyone again for coming out last night, and to Rich (a.k.a. LASH) and Jackie for taking the time to fly down and putting so much effort in to making the night truly memorable. The number and quality of toys on display was phenomenal.

    Thanks animator, I appreciate the kind words. Lash did a great job on all of the pieces. And indeed these two look great together.

    Made it home safely from Florida and have started to try and figure out an arrangement for the additions to the new cabinet.

    Wow, St. Petersburg was such a great and fun time. Visiting the store for the Grinning Death show was by far one of the best vacations ever! Everyone was very hospitable and just all around some of the most generous & kind folks you will ever meet! I highly recommend everyone putting forth the effort to visit whenever the first available opportunity arises!

    It was great to meet so many board members, you FLaskers are awesome and thanks so much to Scott and Lauren, ya'll were quite the congenial hosts!

    Grand Applause to Lash and Jackie, Lookin forward to what's around the corner!

    Congratulations Rich on a kick-ass show. Wow! I wish I could've been there. And thanks to all that posted pics. Aside from Rich's wild creations, I would had been all over the Woo.

    I just want to say thanks again for all the good times this weekend. I had a blast hanging out and getting the opportunity to meet everyone. Its not everyday that I can say thank you in person and get feedback face to face.

    @ Scott ... Your store is on its way to being one of the best shops on the east cost to meet and experience new art and artist. I'm honored you even considered having me host a show in your shop. Florida People, you have a gem that most collectors will never experience, cherish this !

    @ Chis B ... I'm honored that you flew in for my event, that was a first for me and I wont soon forget that ! You and your lady are always welcome in my neck of the woods if you ever make it over.

    @ Sumatra ... Better luck next time with the lottery I swear your turn is coming !

    @ Mean Mr Teeeeeeeeepeeee ... I never did get that address so I can't send you all the free goodies O well I guess .... ;)

    @ Christan .... I'm gonna look like a fool in that interview, hahaha once that fucking camera came on I was like a deer in headlights ... but being questioned and expected to answer ..... please be kind when you edit that ! :lol: lots of quick MTV edits and a voice over by Morgan Freeman .. just saying ....

    @ DylanX ... I don't know how old you are, but you have a great eye for making a matching set of toys! Take it slow and I think your gonna have a lot to explore in this hobby !

    @ Gojigirl ... I swear I think we are related, you just felt like family. Me and Jackie had a blast talking with you and yours, your enthusiasm for this hobby and the people in it are really what makes this special !

    @ PoorBadger ... Its spelled W O O K I E E ;)

    @ EVERY ONE who showed up ... So many faces and people I couldn't possibly mention you all without forgetting at least one so .... You guys are the best. I loved that you all had questions for me. It shows that you are all in this hobby for the right reasons and want to understand why things are the way they are instead of looking for toys with $$$ attached to them.

    O and for the kid who scored that unpainted black flake Sludgie, your awesome for never giving in when everyone wanted you to trade with them. That blew me away, SO so awesome !

    I cant wait to make it back, I was trying to figure out how I can con ... I mean convince Scott into letting me do this again :twisted: Again thank you all !

    Thanks Rich, i'm 15 and it was a VERY tough decision deciding what to buy, because everything at the show was great. I really also liked the idea of choosing your own header. That was great that you were answering everyones questions, I would've been overwhelmed. Do you plan on having any more Sludge Demon releases? Hopefully you could come back down to Florida and have another great show. The sludge demon sculpt has really grown on me and I'm glad to have your work in my collection.
