2019 PROCRASTINATION POST - HOSS

WAS HAVING A GREAT TIME DOING MY TWELVE DAYS OF AD-MAS POSTS AND THEN I ACTUALLY FINISHED THE SERIES (RARE FOR THIS BLOG) AND HAD NO IDEA WHAT TO DO WITH MYSELF. IT WAS THE HOLIDAYS SO I FELT JUSTIFIED BEING A LAZY BUMP BUT NOW IT'S A NEW YEAR DECADE AND WORLD WAR THREE MAY BREAK OUT AT ANY MOMENT SO I'M FEELING THE PRESSURE TO DO SOMETHING WITH MY LIFE AGAIN. LOTS OF PEOPLE ARE DOING 'BEST OF 2019' STUFF BUT I'M WAY TOO DISORGANIZED FOR THAT AND BESIDES I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE HELL I DID IN NOVEMBER LET ALONE FEBRUARY SO HOW CAN I JUDGE THE BEST OF A WHOLE-ASS YEAR UP TO MY RIGOROUS STANDARDS WITHOUT HAVING ALL THE FACTS. IN DESPERATION I LOOKED THROUGH THE DRAFT POSTS I MEANT TO PUBLISH MONTHS AGO FOR SOME EASY CONTENT AND DISCOVERED I ALREADY HAD A BEST OF 2019 SERIES ALREADY UPLOADED! I JUST HAVE TO TYPE IN SOME NONSENSE AND HIT PUBLISH! BEST OF ALL IF I FIND ANYTHING LYING AROUND ON MY DESK I MISSED IN THE MEANTIME I CAN JUST POST IT AN Y'ALL WILL NEVER KNOW

IF YOU WANT A REAL TOP 5 LIST GO CHECK OUT THORZUL WILL RULE DEATH STARE CARDS WHO DOES THIS RIGHT EVERY YEAR, GOING SO FAR AS TO TEASE A GREAT HIT ON TWIRRER AND THEN MAKE US WAIT MONTHS TO SEE IT

1975 TCMA ALL TIME GREATS OLD HOSS RADBOURN


I MAY HAVE LIED WITH THE ADDAMS FAMILY CARD, THIS MIGHT BE THE BEST OF THE YEAR. IN THE 70'S TCMA PUBLISHED A SET OF ALL TIME GREATS POSTCARDS WHICH ARE REALLY COOL AND WERE FAIRLY COMMON AND CHEAP IN THE 80S AND THE ONES I GOT I COLORED ON AND GENERALLY TRASHED AND NOW I WILL NEVER SEE ANOTHER ONE AGAIN. MAN I WISH I COULD DO THE ENTIRE DECADE OF THE 80S OVER. THE POSTCARDS WERE SO COOL, THEY DECIDED TO DO A SMALLER SIZED SET OF TRADING CARDS. THESE AREN'T STANDARD BASEBALL CARD SIZE BUT ARE A LITTLE LARGER, MORE LIKE CARDS FROM THE 50S. FOUND A SMALL PILE OF THEM AT THE FLEA MARKET IN A BOX FOR $1.50 A CARD AND POOPED A BIT WHEN I FOUND THE OL HOSS WITH THE FLIPPING THE BIRD POSE. WHO NEEDS A SUPER EXPENSIVE OLD JUDGE OLD HOSS WHEN YOU CAN GET THE VINTAGE CHEEPNISS. I SOMEHOW GOT THIS FOR FIFTY CENTS PROBABLY BECAUSE THE SELLER FORGOT HE WAS EVEN SELLING THESE THINGS



I DON'T KNOW WHAT IS VICIOUSLY JABBING MY NOSTALGIA GLAND MORE - THE TEXT THAT LOOKS LIKE SOMEONE SHOVED AN INDEX CARD IN A TYPEWRITER OR THOSE INEXPLICABLE LITTLE DOTS THAT LOOK LIKE FAKE PERFORATION. THIS IS LIKE A BASEBALL CARD ZINE AND IT'S FRIGGIN FANTAZTIC. I WANNA GET SOME INDEX CARDS AND A BUSTED OLD TYPEWRITER AND MAKE MY OWN CARD SET NOW

BONUS 2019 IN REVIEW CONTENT!!!

BEEN FEELING INTROSPECTIVE LATELY AND HAVE KINDA SORTA FIGURED OUT SOME OF MY FAVORITES OF 2019 SO WHAT THE HELL, LET'S SHARE THEM HERE. MOST OF YOU HAVE ALREADY CLOSED THE TAB AFTER DROOLING OVER THE OLD HOSS CARD, THIS IS A NICE LITTLE BONUS FOR THE STRAGGLERS

BEST MOVIE OF 2019

I DON'T GO TO SEE MOVIES ANYMORE, I GET DRAGGED BY MY FAMILY. SO THE 2019 MOVIES I'VE SEEN CAN BE COUNTED ON ONE HAND AND I WASN'T CRAZY ABOUT MOST OF THEM. MY FAVORITE OF WHAT I DID SEE WAS:



STAYING ON BRAND BY ONLY LIKING THINGS FROM LAST CENTURY. THIS IS ONE OF THOSE THINGS THAT SHOULD REALLY BE SEEN IN A THEATER BUT I'M SURE SOME OF Y'ALL HAVE A 96 INCH PLASMA SCREEN SO THAT SHOULD BE CLOSE ENOUGH. I WAS OBSESSED WITH SPACE TRAVEL AND THE MOON LANDING AS A KID AND BEING ABLE TO SEE ALL THE BEHIND THE SCENES STUFF WAS FANTASTIC

AS FOR MY FAVORITE FILM OF 2019, I DID MANAGE TO WATCH A BUNCH OF MOVIES THAT I HAD BEEN PUTTING OFF AND I GENERALLY REALLY ENJOYED THEM. HONORABLE MENTION GOES TO GET OUT AND HAUSU BUT MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE IS DEFINITELY



THIS MIGHT BE MY FAVORITE MOVIE PERIOD NOW. I'VE ALWAYS LOVED GODZILLA AND I'M A BIG FAN OF NEON GENESIS EVANGELION AND IT'S LIKE BOTH OF THEM GOT MOOSHED UP INTO A DELICIOUS CINEMATIC PEANUT BUTTER CUP. NINETY PERCENT OF THE FILM IS IDIOT BUREAUCRATS RUNNING AROUND WITH THEIR HAIR ON FIRE TRYING TO DEAL WITH THE OTHER TEN PERCENT WHICH IS GODZILLA ABSOLUTELY WRECKING SHIT. I LOVE THE JAPANESE OFFICIALS BICKERING. I LOVE THE INTERNATIONAL MEDDLING. I LOVE HOW THE UNDERDOG SAAVED THE DAY. I LOVE GOOFY-ASS BABY ZILLA. I LOVE ASS KICKING GROWNED UP ZILLA. I LOVE IT ALL. THE POINT WHERE IT WENT FROM MY FAVORITE OF '19 TO MY FAVORITE PERIOD WAS WHEN THE NERD SQUAD CONVENED TO TRY TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO DEAL WITH ANGRY KAIJU AND THE GODDAMN EVANGELION BATTLE THEME MUSIC PLAYED. AND THEN IT BECAME THE NERD SQUAD THEME SONG. JUST WATCHING THE TRAILER HAS ME ALL VERKLEMPT, I NEED A MOMENT

MORE 2019 MEMORIES SOON AFTER I BUY THE DVD

I know those TCMA All-Time Greats cards well but have never seen that Radbourn. That is spectacular. I bet if I look one up right now it will be 20 bucks (*makes quick check*). OK, between 10 bucks and sold out. But I found a cheaper card with the same pose!

The "family drags you to movies" years killed going to the movie theater for me. The appeal is gone forever.

A. THORZUL is back? Sweet.
B. Looking forward to watching Apollo 11 online somewhere.
C. Your Godzilla Shin review motivated me to buy it on Amazon. Can't wait to watch it on my puny 52" screen.
