I would have called it Power'Nap 3000, but still, great product if you're into 1970's sci-fi decor.

Kamandi certainly wasn't the first post-apocalyptic tale - the Victorians wrote them as well - but it is the one infused with Jack Kirby's astounding imagination. This is volume 2 of the hard cover series of reprints.
Now we just need Thundarr vs. Kamandi, and we'll be all set.

I rate it a solid C+, which for me is a pretty good grade for a modern movie. Hey, they screwed up the name and the marketing something fierce, but the flick was pretty fun and only moderately annoying if you're a fan of the series of books. For modern Hollywood, that's about the best you can expect.
It could have been ...
But it least it had ...

Okay, so the cartoons are pretty lousy (though wonderfully weird), but I'm sick of all the Aquaman trashing that goes on these days. Besides, without these cartoons, there never would have been a Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy!
One of the greats, and apparently 100% complete. Yeah, some of the material is dated, especially if you have no idea who Phil Silvers is (I think approximately 65% of all characters in the series were imitating him), but they had a great warped sense of humor and some of the best voice actors in the business.

Goodness knows, we of the middle-aged, computing generation could stand a bit more exercise, especially when you get paid to be a desk jockey.
Oh, and this one I actually did buy - today (July 14), it's only $65 at Amazon
Update: Great little product. I couldn't use it under the desk - my knees would have hit it - but I keep it next to my desk in my office and can spend 10 to 15 minutes pedaling while reading a report or article and burn 100 to 200 calories. Easy to assemble, works well (so far) - all in all, I give it high marks.

I'm a nut for old detective shows, and Mannix is one of my favorites. I own the first two seasons on DVD, and am slowly working through season 2 (very slowly, darn you streaming Netflix).
The game I cut my teeth on (I really shouldn't have been chewing on it), and still my favorite version of the grand old game. An excellent starter for kids and adults alike.

Okay, technically I already own this one, so I'm too cheap to buy another copy.
This is easily one of the most useful books a role-playing gamer can own, regardless of what system they use. It's also an artifact of the halcyon days of the hobby, from just before a weird game enjoyed by bearded men became a money-making phenomenon.
