I just added a lot more photos to the review of "Asylum" I posted a year ago. The computer I was using at the time did not have screen capture capabilities and the photo was a blurry "digital camera taking a photo of the screen" type. Decided to fix that with some bright, sharp new photos that do Robin justice! Enjoy!

Pretty fun to watch this review of the German release of "Horror Hospital". I just know a little German so I can understand a few words here and there. This guy is pretty thorough as he shows us the cover, the discs, the booklet inside - which I notice is pretty big and has photos! Cool! I can read German better than I can understand it spoken, so I'm anxious to get this! Wonder what that whole booklet is saying??? I'm just waiting for the price to come down. So far Amazon.de has it from about $25 used to $45 new. But I'm confused about the shipping thing, as it looks like one place is asking for 15 Euros to ship world-wide? Almost 20 bucks? That can't be right. Ugh, annoying.
I'm particularly anxious to get this, as Darrell Buxton has mentioned on one of my previous posts that his interview with Robin in Manchester in 2005 is one of the extras! Ahhhhh!
I'll wait a little longer for the price to come down. Darn confusing Euro system. Ordering stuff from England is at least easy to comprehend!

I'm always perusing the auction sites for anything Robin I MAY need. For being a huge fan, though, I'm not that into collecting a lot of paper goods or autographs. Especially not at this time in my life where I'm realizing it's all just stuff that people are going to have to deal with after I'm gone...and they're sure not going to cherish it the way I did! I shudder at the thought of my son and his future wife sighing as they load up the truck with piles of rare Robin Askwith and Sweet posters and heading for the church rummage sale....who will not be able to sell any of it and throw it in the dumpster afterward - yikes. Better leave the rest of it in Europe where people know who they are and collect it!
So....that is the reason why I'm not bidding on this super-cool auction that I would have IF I (1) was young enough to not worry much about far into the future and (2) also had a lot of extra money! These lobby cards are amazing! The seller is located in Lebanon, of all places. Wonder if they'll sell? $200, whew.
