So today was pretty damn awesome once it got rolling around the afternoon. At my college we’re in the last of week seven out of the quarter, and my class got free prepaid tickets to this panel and it’s 40th, so I got to see and hear some rather insightful things from some amazing people.
Didn’t even matter if I knew them or not (and believe me it’s obvious I knew at least two of these people) they were all just…there was such an expansive variety when it came to their stories, their advice, their knowledge. Or even them pretty much bullshitting at times. It was all hilarious and extremely joyful, like you were just sitting around with these people as they are - people.
I think this is partly why I didn’t suddenly pass out because of my great admiration for these two men right here, who’ve pretty much been part of my childhood since forever. I’ve come to take such awesome instances as these to really just let them be themselves and not always leave them in the shining heavenly light, even though they very well deserve it. Matt and Craig were nothing but the best even if it was a shame that they had to leave so soon, and any stories they had to share was just priceless!
Thank you guys for coming out from your busy days and making an appearance at my college which you so proudly came from. It makes me feel all the more prouder and eager to really get to my own work and who knows, maybe even make my own mark on the world :)
Hey Arnold! Comics from Simpsons Illustrated
If you’re ever looking for some good and valid information on Hey Arnold! you should definitely check out:
The Hey Arnold! Wiki
Don’s Hey Arnold! Site
Both are super great resources! Don’s site has basically been around since FOREVER. The wiki has some very hard to find information and visuals. Check ‘em out!
Oh, I also recommend Arnold’s Room as well. Tragically, it’s had to be dramatically revamped at least once due to hosting issues, but there’s still a lot of stuff there that no one really checks out.
There’s also a couple of forums, but none seem to stay active for long. That sort of sucks, because I think forums are great for easy chatting, but it just doesn’t seem to be a popular form of e-communication these days.
"Long time ago, (at 2004 precisely) my birthday was approaching and I had the luck to contact Craig Bartlett via snail mail and sent to him a "Party Wagon drawing", so as a wonderful person he is, he contacted me via email replying that he liked the drawing and also thanking me for it, so I replied that receiving his mail had been the best birthday present ever. Days later, he sent another mail saying that he was going to send me some "Hey Arnold cells" as a Birthday present. And here they are. Nowadays I treasure them as you can see."
