A Real Collector's Swap Event
But after a few long talks, we decided that we weren't a good fit for the show. Not only do we have a crazy family dynamic but the requirement to forgo being on any other television show for 18 months would then limit our pursuit of more educational projects, such as my work with domestic violence, special needs, and history/culture issues.
(Plus, while we don't mind laughing at or being laughed at especially regarding our collecting habits, we* aren't exactly loud exhibitionists.)
However, if you belong to a family of collectors and welcome the chance to participate in this social experiment called reality television (for financial honorarium too!), check out the casting call and then contact Matthew McLaughlin at firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP. Don't forget to tell him that Deanna from Collectors' Quest sent you!
* When I say "we aren't exactly loud exhibitionists", I mean some of us are :cough-Me: and some of us aren't :cough-Him:

Quick, What Decade Is It?
We're sure that Mackenzie really wishes she had traded places with Marlene Dietrich back in 1976. Marlene was still alive then; so trading now, while it may alleviate some of today's problems, really isn't a good idea.

Goodman Action Figures
I've never seen The Big Lebowski; so maybe I'm un-cool. But who doesn't want a John Goodman action figure?
Personally, I've always wanted Roseanne action figures. I'd totally love to play with the Connor family. I double-dog-dare you to say you wouldn't either.

The Un-Charmkins Episode
Like Humpty Dumpty, all the king-sized voice talent couldn't hold the cartoon together.
Ben Vereen (Dragonweed), Aileen Quinn (Brown-Eyed Susan), Sally Struthers (Poison Ivy), Ivy Austin (Skunkweed), Martin Bierbach (Willie Winkle), Lynne Lambert (Lady Slipper), Chris Murney (Bramble Brother, Briarpatch, Crocus), Bob Kaliban (Bramble Brother), Gary Yudman (Thorny), Peter Wardren (Popcorn), Freddi Webber (Blossom), Patience Jarvis (Announcer), Tina Capland (Announcer), Helen Leonhart (Vocalist), Jamie Murphy (Vocalist), Helen Miles (Vocalist).
While the Charmkins only had one episode on TV, I recently had my own Charmkins episode. It resulted in a headache so fierce, that I'm selling the smelly jewelry playmates. If you want 'em, they're cheap.
Advil is extra.

About The Get Out! Kitschy Kitschy Coo Award
The Get Out! Kitschy Kitschy Coo Award is given by Pop Tart and reflects Pop Tart's enjoyment of mocking, amusing, and amazing comments made at any of her blogs, including her blog posts at CQ.
The award gives more than a nod to Elaine Benes, only Pop Tart's incredulity isn't mocking; she's really amazed &/or amused. Pop Tart reserves the right to remove the mocking element in the "Get out!" because the person commenting has already provided that. Plus, she's not shoving you.
Or perhaps it's that your comments are Elaine-esque, giving a full frontal shove to Pop Tart. But we'll leave that debate to the philosophers in the crowd.
Should you be clever enough to be given the "Get Out!" Award, feel free to display the award with a link back to Kitschy Kitschy Coo (either to the post where Pop Tart awards it to you, or the blog's main URL, Kitschy-Kitschy-Coo.Com).
Oh, and feel free to celebrate with a dance.

Shape Changes and Imagination
Thursday, November 15, 2007
In it you get to see more of me than I'd like. Not only do I discuss that ugly little sad folk art piece and my boudoir chair, but I threaten my children -- publicly:
"I keep telling my kids if they get rid of my stuff when I die, I will haunt them. So they are not allowed to get rid of it."So I guess if I haunt them, I'd legally be without a leg to stand on. And, if the chair is one of the items they get rid of, I won't even be able to sit on that. But I don't suppose either of those things matter to ghosts.

Something Fishy I Can Blame On The Simpsons
Now I discover I missed the animated TV series.
Adapted to the cartoon format in 1992 as an attempt by CBS to compete with the success of The Simpsons by creating cartoons adults in the prime time evening slot, starring a wonderful cast:
* John Ritter as Inspector Gill
* Hector Elizondo as Don Calamari
* Edward Asner as Chief Abalone
* Jonathan Winters as Mayor Cod
* Tim Curry as The Sharkster
* Robert Guillaume as Detective Catfish
* Buddy Hacket as Crabby
* Megan Mullally as Pearl
* JoBeth Williams as Angel
* Frank Welker as Mussels Marinara/Doc Croaker
* Georgia Brown as Goldie
* Charlie Schlatter as Tadpole
But the series was very short-lived. According to Toonopedia:
Despite the star-studded cast, Fish Police failed to reel in viewers. Six episodes were produced, but the plug got pulled after only three had been aired. The rest appeared only in a few overseas markets.Another reason to hate The Simpsons. Sure, if it weren't for them, maybe Fish Police the TV series wouldn't have been made; but the too-high rating expectations CBS had was unrealistic for a new show. (And don't get me started on how few episodes shows get before they are cancelled -- it drives me nuts.) Plus I just don't like the Simpsons.
Guess what collection-obsession's on my horizon?
