|"Imagine our white babies, Fraulein!"|
The year was 1985 and I was in my toy-obsessed prime.
I was mostly a science fiction kid due to STAR WARS and my burgeoning interest in STAR TREK, but alongside this began my (unhealthy) obsession with counter-terrorism through the military-industrial behemoth known as task force "G.I. Joe" as depicted in the comic book and contemporary television program, each named "G.I. JOE." What did "G.I." stand for? Who was "Joe?" What is a "weather dominator" and why should we fear it? My mind was filled with wonder at this new world of laser-powered weaponry and 0 death count. I thought the top "Joe" Conrad "Duke" Hauser (RA 213-75-7793) was a competent fellow, perhaps alarmingly Aryan for my 8-year old taste, but nonetheless a pleasant alternative to the likes of "Flint" or the foolish drunkard "Ship-wreck." And I also found his romantic tension with Master Sergeant Shana "Scarlett" O'Hara a refreshing break from the sexless robot adventures of a certain program which shall not be named. Oh, the drama of protecting the free world!

PREORDER66 - EP56 "REAL"
i.e. Coming Clean. Like Centaurs.
Tonight, on a VERY SPECIAL episode of Preorder66: This is the TRUE story of five brothers picked to record together, share a hobby and have their thoughts taped...to find out what happens when people stop being polite and start getting REAL...THE REAL 66. Brought to you with limited commercial interruption, in blazing 56K speed.
Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, very much alive, Preorder66 comes back one more time with a fresh new review! There’s just something about us that we can never stay away for too long, and it will only take small fragments of time before one of us hops on this site to drop a little digital love your way. Readers, fans, students, teachers, dancers, singers, and everyone in attendance in the Indo Silver Club, please lend me your ears (or eyes) for the next few moments!
My undying Thanks.
So..wow. I am in a state of shock here. I can't believe what has happened, and how much our community amazes me. I never expected any of this and am in near tears as I see how kind and generous everyone has been. I'm not going to lie or sugarcoat it, it has been a real rough year for me. But through all of it I had my friends, and never more so than these past few days. When I got into the accident that morning, after the smoke settled I had but one thought "what am I going to do?" I was in a state of near shock all day, trying to figure out how to fix this, and then Dan happened. He started this fundraiser, to help me get back on my feet, and everyone responded with such generosity I had hope, in one of my darkest moments.
I'm not great with words, hell you can read my reviews to figure that one out, but I try to express what is in my heart. And now it is happiness, joy, and a undying gratitude for all those kind enough to donate to me, when they all have their own struggles to face. I am now in a position to actually buy a car, thanks to every single one of you. I just hope I can repay this kindness to you all in the future.
Thank you, so much. Every single one of you. This kindness will not be forgot, for the rest of my days on this earth.
You can make a kind donation here.
