TOTLB S20 The O’Halloran Experience

That first picture, was the end of what might go down in history, as the best (or one of the best) episodes that Thinking Outside the Longbox has done! We started off the day at Colorado Springs Comic Con, not being invited (or forgotten if you ask Frankie) to a low key house party. Once we were invited (after a pity invite), our friend Jack "Smitty" Smith told us that he would be bringing along famed Clerks star Brian O'Halloran! Of course, we're big fans: Upon arrival, Smitty introduced...

You witness everyone trying to cope and help with the situation, while also finding out that one of the passengers is...


TOTLB S18 Youtube Original – Impulse

I started watching the Youtube "Original," TV show, Impulse, a little bit before we headed out to Comic Con International! What a crazy cool idea!! The very first scene in the pilot, sucks you in, without really knowing what is going on!! Two guys fighting, and teleporting, between what seems like an iceberg in the middle of nowhere, and a crowded subway car. It always peaks my interest when the action starts the movie, and every move from then on, represents a step towards knowing what...

The Mego Corporation was founded in 1954, but turned to doing license action figures in 1971! One of the first action figures was NFL Hall of Famer, Joe Namath.

Unfortunately, in 1983 Mego closed down, bringing an end to what once was one of the greatest action figures makers in existence!! The great news is, that in...

TOTLB 092 Knights At the Rectangle Table

TOTLB S12 Cut Throat City

It's been about seven years since the last time that I was in New Orleans. This was still at least six years after hurricane Katrina hit, and it was STILL a mess. Driving around different cities, you'd see houses on high stilts, abandoned houses, houses that were demolished, or spaces that were empty because nobody could afford to rebuild. It was definitely a sad sight to see. Cut Throat City tells the story of a group of kids struggling to get back to normal life after the hurricane hit....
