1. The Dark Museum has gone thru a couple of changes.

a. The ETMP is now in Retirement mode.

b. The Ripper set is now in Retirement mode. (Though the Demented Eye is available)

c. I have a new shipment of Leather Dispatch Envelopes for 3 No Evil and they are SWEET!

d. fEARs (3 ears) in retirement mode.

e. Pirate Toes (3 Toes)in Retirement mode.

g. The NEW and only Dark Museum prop set now available contains a Shrunken Head, Monkey's Paw and 2 (two) Ears and a Toe. The price is such that a buyer will be getting a free Ear. Smile But this is the set that puts the effect in the Feature category and simplifies the decision process. (see the site for new photos)

h. Good news for those interested in the Werewolf transformation props...finally there is a light at the end of the tunnel finding the perfect apparatus to make the swith. News soon. ( http://grindshow.com/grindshow/moon.html )

i. There is a new Zibit critter to choose as a substitute for the Mer. See http://mist.grindshow.com Same price as the Mer and bridges the gap between Science and Myth...well sorta. ;-)

2. Discussions and plans are being CONSIDERED for a Higley DVD...in other words I'm being hammered to get one done from numerous quarters (even one at home.)

That's about it for now. If you are not 'friended' on FB please look me up. (my name) I only have 'performers' as freinds...NO muggles (except for a couple of offspring)

Thanks all.

Lots of great information here Doug. Especially about the DVD. That would be a great release for the bizarre community.

So Doug, does retirement mode mean that you may still have some of those goddies available but once gone they won't be available anymore OR there are no more period?

I'm interested in a couple of things if the former Smile if so, can you PM me please?

Thanks,

David

Not to be morbid, but it would be nice to have that kind of a legacy from Doug. None of us are immortal, and this type of stuff will be important for others to see long after I've finished converting oxygen to carbon dioxide.

I feel the same way about a few others here and elsewhere.

I totally blew an opportunity to have a private audience with Slydini in his later years, but at least I have DVD footage of him both teaching and performing. I kick myself every time I think about it. I don't do so as much in relation to Mr. Higley, considering how available Doug has made himself via other modes of communication. However, it would be very nice to have DVD footage of him.

Good question David. 'Retirement Mode' to me, means it's not on the site, and no I have nothing in stock. But for those in the know, I'll always make exceptions. I mainly just want to get the best out there I can...many who ordered an ETMP ordered the head anyway, as an extra prop. This brings the head back into the main routine, which is really how it should be done anyway and was the Original release about a hundred years ago (it seems). Just simplifying things and getting ready for a major re-do of the site. Bottom line though is, it's just the way I want it. I enjoy making snap decisions. ;-)

To blow his cover, Tony is one of those hammering me for a DVD. I'm not all that convinced I have anything to offer beyond what I already do...unless I can figure out a way to work in a babe with a huge rack to help sales.

And Christopher Handa, I resist the temptation to say 'up yours' but I appreciate the sensitivity in which you phrase your response. Smile

Looking forward to the DVD!

I have (and cherish) the Ripper set and have a list of Higley 'wants' as long as your arm.

Wow, Doug, nothing like addressing somebody by their full name to REALLY emphasize the age gap!!! Smile

What about the construction of a full-sized AA figure with the face of Gepetto and the deep baritone voice of a lion?

I think an Indiana Jones type adventure that shows Doug obtaining all these wonderful items in various locations would be a winner. Call Spielberg!

A Higley DVD would probably commence with him reading all of our names off a list and saying "Up Yours!" and "Kiss my Gepetto Ass!" ;-P

That would be so worth it! It should be Higley giving you what for all the way through....

"Ok, now you take the 'zibit and...wait. I know what you're thinking..Come here! <smacks camera> Don't even try it. Either ya want to bathe in dollar bills or ya sit yer sorry ass alone in the rain. So listen up! Gepetto don't make no fools!"

That was Gangsta... I just imagined one of those ghetto horror flicks like Snoop Dogg as vampire.
