For International Bidders for the Ebay Auction

Okay, people, if you'll recall the Odds and Ends post I made a few days ago, I set up some ebay auctions. Three of those auctions, because of their size, I'm not doing international shipping on. The rest, however, I'm more than happy to do International Shipping...

...except ebay is kind bass-ackwards about this kind of thing and I screwed up. I thought listing off exclusions to where I won't ship would automatically mean NOT putting those exclusions meant international shipping would be fine.

I talked to Doug Walker, however, who has done ebay auctions, too, and he told me that ebay actually pretty much hides those options when you first set up a listing and you can't put them back on when the item is already listed. I refuse to punish the people who have already bid on these items by cancelling them and relisting them. However, it seems that there IS a work-around available. Really the international exclusion thing SEEMS to only just hide the listings from people outside the USA, but they're still capable of bidding on it if they have actual links to them.

As such, I am reposting the direct links to each listing that I am doing international on for your use. If this is not the case and it seems you CAN'T actually bid on them, then I am truly sorry and it was certainly not my intention. This first attempt of mine to do ebay selling has been a success, however, and I plan on doing some more for more comics that I've reviewed in the future and I will make sure this doesn't happen again.

Again, apologies for the inconvenience and hopefully this will work this time.

Normals and Beginnings

We've got another Odds and Ends post for you! Click below to see updates on various things, the schedule of upcoming episodes, me trying out Dr. Pepper, and Ebay auctions!

Schedule of Upcoming Episodes
Here are the upcoming episodes for the next two months! As always, they're subject to change if it turns out they're not so bad or just so painfully dull that I can't make anything about them funny.

1/30 - New Guardians #1
2/6 - Gameboy #2
2/13 - Secret Double Feature (Plus: The End of the "His Blue Soul" arc)
2/20 - Mr. T #1 (AP Comics)
2/27 - Mr. T #2
3/5 - The Amazing Spider-Man and Captain America in Dr. Doom's Revenge!
3/12 - The Invincible Four of Kung-Fu & Ninja #3
3/19 - Kamandi at Earth's End #2
3/26 - Blackweb #1

I should also note that after the end of the "His Blue Soul" storyline, we're probably going to take a break from storylines for the following two months or so. It's been kind of non-stop for me since the end of the Entity storyline with only a reprieve in January... which was still occupied by MAGFest. So yeah, I think we could all use a little break (at least that I could), especially with what's going to be coming with the end of this one.

Linkara Tries Dr. Pepper
Yeah, this is probably a post that could be on its own, but I figure what the hell - watch me jump on the "reviewer tries food" bandwagon as I try Dr. Pepper for the very first time ever.

Dracula: Sovreign of the Damned Bloopers
Behold the bloopers for the crossover Bennett and I did! Plus: bloopers for his crossover with Spoony where they reviewed Diatron-5!

NOTE: If you're wondering why my swearing is bleeped here and not in the stinger for the Wonder Woman crossover, it's because I didn't realize Nash was going to put that in at the end. Had I known, I would have asked him to bleep it. While it should be common knowledge that I use that kind of language outside the videos by now, I always prefer to not have that available for people except on something like, say, a DVD extra, where you can see me use certain choice words in the Alone in the Dark review bloopers on the That Guy With the Glasses volume 1 DVD.

Upcoming Crossover Review
As I've stated elsewhere, I recorded three crossover reviews for MAGFest. Two of them you have already seen - the Wonder Woman 2011 TV pilot and the Dracula: Sovreign of the Damned review. However, the third one is a little more complicated. I'm the one who's actually editing that one... and writing it. Yeah, in the anticipation for MAGFest, I had to write four scripts and I ended up prioritizing them: getting two regular episodes and the live show took priority.

The fourth script, the actual crossover, took last and as a result, I ended up only taking notes on the movie, then writing up the live action scenes I knew I wanted to do, and filming those there. As a result, I need to actually write the voiceover sections for the review. It shouldn't be TOO difficult a process, since voiceover tends to be a summary... but this movie is painful and confusing and I'm writing for a loooot of people and as such I need to get all their voices down. I'm going to try to finish this script in the next 2-3 weeks, but I just wanted to let you guys know that there's one more crossover from MAGFest featuring me, and yes, it involves that picture of me with the DeLorean.

Smallville Review by Vincent E.L.
Vincent E.L., the guy responsible for the Atop the Fourth Wall theme song, recently started his own review series! Check out the pilot episode, a review of an episode of Smallville!

Media Meltdown Interviews Linkara
And here's another interview from MAGFest!

That's All I'm Saying Update
A lot of people have been asking about the status of That's All I'm Saying and if I'll be continuing it. Unfortunately, due to the lack of time I've had, I haven't had a chance to really think about working on it. While it's a relatively simple thing to put together, it still requires time to write and edit.

On top of that, with everything else I'm working on for AT4W, I'm actually BEHIND on my comics reading and have a stack of at least twenty comics I haven't had a chance to read yet from the past month or two. And even then, there isn't much to say about the stuff I'm reading beyond what I've already said before.

Is the series dead? Eh, I don't like to say that, but I want to focus my efforts on stuff like History of Power Rangers or other shows than taking a day to look at my pull list. I may still do an episode if I have something I'd like to say on a subject, but otherwise it's unlikely you'll be seeing anything any time soon, sorry to say.

Ebay Auctions
I have some items up for sale!

You can see the ebay list of items available HERE!
NOTE: Some items I will not be doing international shipping on, I'm sorry to say, due to their size.

Pollo Contest Update
I am happy to report that I have now gone through all 298 entries! Now the process has to be narrowing down those entries into finalists and to pick one from those. Fortunately, I marked which ones I liked along the way, so that process shouldn't take too long. Then I have to confer with the Prop Lady and see what's actually viable to create, especially given some of the imaginative and awesome ideas proposed by people. Do I have an actual date in mind when the winner will be announced? Unfortunately not, especially with the end of the storyline coming up, but still, you should at least be happy to know that progress is being made.

History of Power Rangers Update
SEE: The last Odds and Ends post.

Well, I lie. Unfortunately, there are still delays to be had with the aforementioned storyline finale.

However, there is now an actual reason why there is a delay beyond that. For Christmas, I got a brand-spankin' new editing computer. It is supremely awesome. In the process of transferring data and doing a major cleanup of my old computer, there's a lot of items that have not been transferred over yet... and on the list of stuff to be transferred back just happens to be all my Power Rangers episodes. As a result, I do not have access to them since they're sitting on a hard drive at my parents' place and thus I cannot watch anything right now. Don't worry - I know HOPR is taking a while, but I will make it worth the wait for people, and we're in the home stretch of seasons now.

The Road to 200
I am VERY proud to report that this summer will feature the 200TH EPISODE OF ATOP THE FOURTH WALL! What will I be reviewing? I'm not saying. What I will say is that it's heavily requested and that it's multiple issues. As a result, I may split the 200th episode into two parts of the same episode, but I will give this one the utter destruction that it deserves.

I'm not sure yet how I want to start the buildup and celebrations for 200 episodes, but I want to find some way of doing something exciting for fans as we go down the road to 200. If you have any ideas, please post them below!

Dracula: Sovreign of the Damned

In this episode of Bennett the Sage's Anime Abandon, Linkara joins in to review a made-for-TV movie based on Marvel's Tomb of Dracula series!

NOTE: Yeah, I know, I should probably wait for the next MAGFest Mega-Post to put this up, but I fear with how scattered the remaining MAGFest content is going to be that that would take a while. ‎ Read more!

MAGFest Mega Post #1 (2012)

Like last year, here's a Mega Post of videos from MAGFest! First up is, of course, THE LIVE SHOW! What have I uncovered from the depths of gaming for my third live show?

Next up is an interview I did after the live show!

Let's continue into the next day with THE GREAT NERF GUN WAR! Mind you, the thing lasted for an hour but these are just the first several minutes. My NERF knock-off shotgun was a big hit amongst my peers thanks to ejectable shells.

And in the evening... THAT GUY WITH THE GLASSES PANEL!

And like last year, I was throwing marshmallows. Some fans actually gave me a marshmallow gun, but I did not have time to assemble it before the panel.

There will probably be more to come after this, in particular several crossovers that I participated in, but just as a preview for the one that *I* am putting together, I leave you with this picture courtesy of the Critical Marine.
