New Contest For Artie, The Strongest Man In The World!

Send in your entries for Artie to see!

We're holding a new contest this week and I'd really like all of you to participate. Why? Because, if you're a fan of The Adventures of Pete & Pete, you'll be excited to hear that Artie, the Strongest Man in the World will be viewing each and every one of your entries! Yep, the one and only Toby Huss is going to be our guest on Doc Mock's Movie Mausoleum this Friday night! So lemme explain the contest.

First off, you do NOT have to be a real artist to participate in this. It doesn't matter if you want to draw it in Photoshop, MS Paint or even with finger paints... we'll be judging these entries solely on creativity and humor, not artistic talent. So, to enter the contest, all you need to do is draw Artie interacting with the cast of Doc Mock's Movie Mausoleum in any way you see fit. He could be saving them from danger, he could be enjoying a snack with them... whatever comes to your mind really. Once you have your entry created, simply post it in the official contest blog thread or you can email it to me. Make sure your entries are turned in no later than 5pm PST on Friday, February 12th. If you turn them in any later than that, I can't guarantee they'll make it onto the show. Lastly, if you're a fan of any of Toby's other characters, including "The Wiz" from Seinfeld and "Stumpy" from Carnivàle, you're more than welcome to submit entries involving them as well. And yes, feel free to enter as many times as you like.

After you've turned in your entries, just kick back and watch the live show on Friday night at 10pm PST and we'll be displaying any of the entries that were submitted and letting Toby comment on each of them! A winner will then be selected to receive an autographed poster! I wanna see entries from all of you guys whether you can stay up and watch the episode or not. After all, you can always see what Toby had to say about your entries in the archived version of the show.

Alright, so you've got all week to churn out some great entries involving Artie, Doc, Miss D, Licky, Smiley and anybody else you'd like to include, so get crackin' on 'em. Good luck to all of you who enter! Pipe!

Also, just to let you guys know in advance, I'm extremely excited about our guest next week, because I grew up watching him as Artie, the Strongest Man in the World, on the Adventures of Pete & Pete. In addition to being the voice of "Kahn" on King of the Hill, "Mike" on Reno 911, and "The Wiz" on Seinfeld, he's also played Felix 'Stumpy' Dreifuss in one of my all-time favorite shows, Carnivàle. That's right, Toby Huss is going to be our guest on February 12th, so be sure to catch that one live!

Yes Sir, Dollar General, Sir!

I was searching through some of my files earlier today and found some photos that I completely forgot to post over the holidays. Of course, I had moose mugs and peppermint crunch Junior Mints on my mind at the time, so it's easy to see how a guy could forget to update his blog. Fortunately, this isn't really a holiday season entry, so it doesn't matter that I'm finally getting around to posting it in February.

In December, we paid a visit to Nags Head to visit some family for the holidays. This was my first time there during the winter, which isn't too surprising considering it's a beach town and everything there dies down after the summer. Trust me, the desire to ride a jet ski or a banana boat drops in conjunction with the temperature of the water.

Way to go! Have fun with that repair bill, Popeye.

That said, there are still ways to entertain yourself in a beach town during the winter season. For one thing, you can tour the damage done to the beaches and the docks of the nearby marinas. As you can see in the photo above, the bad weather has a knack for exposing novice sailors who don't know how to tie a spring line and end up having their boats ram up against the docks whenever it gets real windy out.

Aside from that, you can check out the local shops, but many of them close up during the winter since there aren't many vacationers in town. So where can you go? To the Outer Banks Dollar General store!

It's like going to a really bad carnival, only cheaper.

Yes indeedy, the Dollar General store has long been a source of amusement for me over the years, because they're basically a bastion of ultra-cheap, generic products that no other other store was able to sell. So, while we were in Nags Head, we decided to pay a visit to the Dollar General and here are some of the amazing products we found: (more...)
