Dam Fine Fansite...
read your interview with Rob Van Dam about his comic book,
would it be cool if I add it to my RVD website, www.rob-van-dam.com?
I'll give you credit for it and add a link to your site.
Rob, despite our name, we're a pro site. And you give me the
opportunity to clarify our "quoting" policy. Just
as we wouldn't use anybody's full piece from another site
(comics company press releases are sent to us for publication
as is), we ask that you not take our entire text. What's to
drive anybody over to us, then?
welcome to use an excerpt from the interview, with a link
back to us for the full article. That way, you get your traffic
and we get your traffic. We're both happy.
by all means, Van Dam fans, check out Rob's site. It's pretty
cool, and pretty extensive.

got to meet RVD?!! You are SOOOO lucky. Is he really cool?
Is he down to earth?
son and I met Kurt Angle back in May at an amusement park
in Bristol, CT. He was so nice. They had a raffle after the
autograph signing and the 5 people chosen got to go on rides
with Kurt and hang out with him (but there was a ton of people
following them around the park).
my 9 year old son was one of the lucky 5. He went on a roller
coaster twice with him and this thing called the sky coaster
(you swing way up high on a bungy). I can't believe I let
him go on it. When they asked me if he could go on the "sky
coaster" with Kurt, I thought they meant a different
ride. When I found out what ride it really was, I started
to panic. My son really wanted to go, and my husband said
to just let him go. My heart was in my mouth, but it was an
awesome experience for him. How many kids can say they rode
the sky coaster with Kurt Angle?
RVD was just as nice - Kurt and Rob are my 2 favorites. RVD
should have Triple H's title from when they fought on Raw.
man, you are so so lucky! Have you met any other wrestlers?
met John Cena, Dawn Marie and Kurt Angle. John Cena and Dawn
were really nice too. You think John would be an a-hole especially
since I was all excited and stumbling over my words when I
thanked him for bringing us such good sports entertainment
and how I LOVE the WWE. He was really humble and grateful
for us watching. We met JR too. He was nice too.
and thanks for sharing your experience meeting RVD.
all the guys currently wrestling, I'd say Angle would be the
one I'd most want to meet. Though really, I just want to exchange
Christmas gifts with Mick Foley.
They Have To Call Him "Serpent Plissken" in England?
is back, but is he back for the U.K. fans? 'Cos I'm in
the U.K. and my favorite films are Escape From NY/LA.
I just don't want to miss out on new Snake stuff. So will
I be able to get it in the U.K.? if so, where? Thanks.
being in the San Francisco Bay Area, I'm not certain of British
distribution patterns, but I'm 98% sure that CrossGen ships
overseas. So if you haven't seen John Carpenter's Snake Plissken
Chronicles yet, you need to find a new comics shop.(And that
series, by the way, will last as long as you blokes keep buying
it. Ho ho. I said "blokes.")
for the rest, I know MGM will be releasing a new special edition
(no, really, it's really special) of Escape From New York
sometime in November. And then we have the anime due sometime
in 2005, from the producers of Ghost In The Shell.
note to Chris Garcia: Ian here is actually British, and he
still spelled "favorite" without a "u."
So get over it.

Now you'll know why.)

that based on the crappy location the indies were in last
year at San Diego that we'd try a different con this year.

small press section was divided into two, with both being
strategically and cleverly placed near food outlets. That
means that anyboy sitting over there might just glance up
and see something in the way of small press that caught their
attention. Unless that hot dog was realllllly good.

Thanks so much for actually paying attention to the story
that's there, instead of imagining some other story entirely!
and I hope I never let you down.
guys may not know what an honor it is to have this woman read
the site. When Fanboy Planet was not even a gleam in some
Daily Radar writers' heads, I was reading her column, "You'll
All Be Sorry," over at Comic
Book Resources. She's one of our own; both giving inspiration
to and setting a high bar for internet would-be comics writers
I never let HER down, either. Nor you, for that matter. People,
thanks for reading and thanks for writing in and letting us
know just how we're doing. Keep it up.
