Fun With A Scanner!!!

I was sifting through some old photos the other day, and just for the hell of it, I decided to crank up my computer scanner and scan in a few selections. These are actual photos from Dyckerson's personal archives...and if I hear so much as a chuckle out of any one of you losers, I'm coming to your house and taking a dump on your front lawn!



We start out with my first car. As you can see, she was quite a beauty! She looked even better before I wrapped her around a tree back in 1994. In case you can't tell, this was a 1984 Ford Escort...



Next, we have a photo of my two bitches from 1997. Actually, they're my dad's bitches, but we're very close. The bottom left bitch is currently dead, but the black bitch is still alive and well. She's named Blizzard ("Bliz") for obvious reasons...



Here's a shot of the master control room at one of the first stations I worked at. This was in the early 90s. As you can see, it was quite a piece of shit. But it was MY piece of shit and I loved it. Ah, simpler times...



Now here's the part where I embarrass myself for your personal amusement. When I was a younger Dyckerson, while other kids were out doing fun stuff like dating, I was barricaded in my room constructing replicas of game show sets. These were taken in the late 80's. See if you can guess which one this is...


Yes, it's the $100,000 Pyramid! (It was cool, so shut the fuck up!!) The light bulbs are fake, but those trilons really turn, baby! Check it out from behind!!!


This is the game board to Super Password, which ran on NBC from '84 to '89. It's the only one of my creations that still survives. The little doors slide open to reveal the words...


And last but not least, my most ambitious creation...

This thing was fucking humongous, and it was never fully completed. But like the others, it featured a fully functioning gameboard...



So that's it. I hope you enjoyed this little stroll down memory lane. By the way, that reminds me. Time to set an appointment with my therapist.

So did you stop making game show sets after you "wrapped" your Ford Escort around a tree in 1994?

I love the family feud! Just don't bash your head with a rock, because I'm not cleaning that!

Pud said...

Wow! You were really addicted to game shows.

Mighty Dyckerson said...

Bitch - No, but I definitely stopped driving drunk at about that time.

Jmeped - Survey says...YES YOU ARE!!!

Pud - That's nothing. You haven't seen my wax sculpture of Wink Martindale.

jmeped said...

Sorry I'm out of pork scented bleach.

I swear by Wink Martindale's wax sculpture, that I had an '84 Escort that got totaled, too. It was black with red trim. I got slammed by some drugged out lady, when she ran a red light. It was just as well, really... the damn car was a lemon from the moment I drove it off the lot. I have rotten luck with vehicles.

So you like to build things and you have quite an eye for detail. No giggling here; I'm impressed, Mister Dyckerson. Fine craftsmanship, indeed. 'Course, there's another portion of me that is screaming, "Run away, run away! He's a total wack-job."

But then, some of my best friends are clinically insane. It's the normal ones that scare me.

Nerd!

Your creations of the game shows was way cooler then the real thing! Where is the pic of your stretch armstrong doll?

Manola Blablablanik said...

Aw shucks, actually this is very endearing.

Mighty Dyckerson said...

Thanks Stacy. I'm glad somebody around here recognizes true art when they see it.

Rev, shouldn't you be puking in a men's crapper right about now?

Dyke, it's in a box along with my Flat Stanley.

Manola, good. Now show me your ta-tas!

Loooooooooser.

Sorry Hushums, but I think Dycky is the biggest loser on the Internets.

Geez you're a geek!

Kelli said...

I can relate Pecker. I had an obsession (circa early 80's) with carving small insects out of cheese doodles. Unfortunatly I failed to document them on 3 by 5 high tech Kodak paper.

Willo Keays said...

ECP - I miss you! You went and moved - now we never see you! You must write home every once in awhile!!!

And yes ... dyck is a nerd. That - and the kilt - is what makes him so attractive.

Mighty Dyckerson said...

ECP is just jealous because I happen to be worshipped and adored by tens of women...and he hasn't gotten laid since Dawson was on the air.

Well then .. i think it's time for the jealous men to start worshipping the tens of women to steal them away from you. In fact - all jealous men - feel free to start worshiping me at any time. The more men who write stuff on my blog - the better. {I love attention!}

ecp said...

hushums, i just wanted to freak you out a little by saying i've uncovered your real name and address in all of 5 seconds! geesh, in this day and age, you should really conceal that information!!!

Tripe Face said...

For Christ's sake Dyck, I leave town for a week and suddenly you start posting pictures of puppies and the car you lost your virginity in (When was that, when you were 27?)

I won't even comment on that sad obsession you have with bad tv shows.

Suck it up wimp and start posting like a man. Otherwise I'm gonna start calling you DColtonBrownie, Jr.

ThePinkPanther said...

You were fat as a kid weren't you?

blog Portland said...

Replicating game show sets seems like the perfect hobby, especiallly for your average serial killer.

Mighty Dyckerson said...

Tripe - Actually I lost my virginity behind the Pyramid set.

Pink - I prefer to think of it as "pleasingly plump."

McFatty - Shut up and roll your pennies.
