Kodak Moments #17

I got hundreds to thousands of photos through my life.  A lot of which would match up to stories here on Cowabunga Corner, but for one reason or another they are not chosen.  This does not mean that these photos are not worth sharing and do not hold stories of their own.  I would like to keep sharing what I can here on the site, so whenever I can I will share a photo and a story to go along with the photo.  If it’s a part of events that have been shared here, we will link back to the stories of the events themselves as well.  Hope everyone enjoys.  Today’s photo is from 2004 only days before I was injured at work.

Random Review #36

 

Throughout the years of being a Ninja Turtle fan, my collection has been growing.  Every year I get something new that joins the collection.  Growing since 1989, I have over 500 Ninja Turtle toys out of package and over 300 in package, as well as books, animation cels, original comic art, scripts and so much more.  To cover all of this on Cowabunga Corner is not something I really think I can do.  Though I get a lot of questions about my collection, so I figured I could do random stories from time to time to share one item in my collection.  This one is a 4Kids Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles book called “The Big Sewer Surprise”.

Hey everyone,

Cowabunga Corner #101: Motor City Comic Con

Hey everyone,

Welcome to episode 23 of Cowabunga Corner Season 4.  In this episode I talk about Motor City Comic Con.  How I started to go to the convention, how it inspired me to hold a booth for TMNT fans, and why I still go to this convention to this day.  Motor City Comic Con was where I held my TMNT con booths in 2000, 2001, and 2003.

Tales of TMNT Guest 2

In January, I shared some stories of when I met some of the TMNT Guests.  People seemed to enjoy these stories. So here I am to share a few more of the TMNT Guest stories.

RSD Update

Many people have been asking me how things have been since my surgery, what I’ve gone through, and just how much of a difference it has made.  I’m at the point where I’m ready to share the last few months of my life and just what a wonderful thing these doctors have done for me.

Michele Ivey's "Cowabunga Corner" #40

In this episode I share video footage from June 5th, 2004 taken at my house. The VH1 Crew was there to film an episode of "Totally Obsessed" and I was the target. I got into this when a friend recommened me to contact VH1 in February 2004 about a show they were starting up about collectors. This friend, did not realize that they weren't going to share my real story either.
