that was the hip-est 190 ever! good job guys!

oh, don't forget to send a copy to nakanari - i assume that you guys tivo-ed it. it would be suduper cool if you do get a digital file too as birdy and bug can then see it too without having to do the whole ntsc to pal conversion thing.

Thanks to our good friend Stephan (whose name I'm probably spelling wrong) we got our hands on a DVD copy of our 190 North appearance from this past Sunday. Four hours later I've managed to figure out how to rip and compress said segment down to a somewhat manageable size for 'net viewing....and here's the link:

:D

It'll also be re-broadcast this coming Sunday (April 3) at 11am...ABC Channel 7 in Chicago.

THANK YOU SO MUCH KIRBY FOR POSTING THE VID!!! I'm so glad you guys are getting exposure. Everytime I tell people I collect designer toys they look at me with a confused expression on their face. Now, I can pass this vid along to show them what I mean! (Don't worry, I saved it so I won't kill your bandwidth) Very cool! Keep on rockin'! :cool:

We've had quite a few people say they came because they saw us on TV. Good news is that the piece runs again tomorrow morning. :D
