Post It Post #7

I’m back again with another Post It Post for you guys and gals out there to chew on.

So what do I have for you this time around…how about the ever popular “Frankentroy” and “Gordon Shumway” himself.  

    

The “Artzee Fartzee” “Frankentroy” was another one of those drawings done while at work. Several Halloweens ago I went to a friend’s party dressed as the green gentle giant. Unlike the Post It Post I did with “Underdog,” I’m not going to post a picture of me made up in that particular costume. Not that it was all that terrible…but mostly because it was not all that good. I meant well…but unfortunately it did not turn out how I had intended. The costume itself was fine and but the makeup was lacking…not that I didn’t put my best foot forward…but feet can’t compete with humidity and sweat. The green makeup kept melting off my face and making me look like that Nazi at the end of “Raiders of the Lost Ark.” All-be-it a cool effect “Yes,” but not when your intentions are to look like “Herman Munster.”  

In “ALF’s Nose Job” I get to meet one of my heroes from my childhood, “Gordon Shumway,” the Melmacian with the most…ALF! That’s right, I was an “ALF” fan in the biggest way back in the day, which might explain why I am the way that I am today as an adult. You read into it that what you want. And since we’re on the subject of that wise cracking wanna be Muppet…man he never really got his due, did he? Picture it…coming to a theater near you in the Summer of ’09…“ALF: The Movie.” Okay, so the title needs a little work but here’s the concept…a live action version of his Saturday Morning cartoon series. ALF on his home planet of Melmac before it blew up, getting into all kinds of hijinx. With the CG effects today…how sweet would that be?  Don’t answer that!  Let me…if merely for a moment, let me live in a world where such a movie might be possible…
