God, it's been forever since I wrote a journal! Well, I didn't have much to talk about, I guess - but I just recently started a new side project that I'm having a lot of fun with, and I wanna let people know!
Back in 2009 or so, I had a discussion thread going at the Toonzone Forums called The Disney Adventures Archive, where I culled from my massive collection of Disney Adventures magazine (one of my favorites as a kid), scanned various pages from each issue, and put together little mini-articles awash in childhood nostalgia. Those threads are long buried now, though, and even if you could find them, all of the photos are broken now that Photobucket charges for off-site hosting. So on a whim, I decided to go back and resurrect this concept...as a Facebook group! It's public, so check it out if you're in the mood for a little good-natured ribbing at what kids in the '90s thought was cool: [link]
I've got about ten issues up right now, but you can certainly expect more. Oh, and the other thing is, my Disney Adventures collection is very close to being complete, but in my efforts to accumulate the entire run of the magazine, the only issues I never managed to get my hands on were October 2000 and December 2000. Just curious, if anyone out there happens to have one or both of those hiding out in your basement or something, would you be willing to hook me up? I'd be super grateful - heck, I'd even be willing to draw you something if you could
