THUNDERBIRDS CONTEST WINNER!
Here on the Spy Vibe blog, Spy Vibers have posted their comment/entries for the THUNDERBIRDS dvd set contest. Winner announced from the blog: Thanks everyone! So great to hear about your experiences with Gerry Anderson shows. Warren, Joe 90 did have a cool theme song! And Tanner brings up a great live-action show, The Protectors. Especially nice to see interesting middle-aged action heroes in that show. As a US viewer we have an unfortunate obsession with "perfect" looking young characters. Check out all the supermarionation shows mentioned- they are ingenious, adventurous, and fun :) Looking for behind-the-scenes context? Sylvia Anderson's books, various documentaries (some on Youtube), and The Art of Mike Trim are all excellent.
The winner is... Robert Lindsey! Send your address to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Congrats and thank you to everyone who entered. The next contest deadlines are coming up for a Golgo 13 novel and an original Man From U.N.C.L.E. novel from 1965. I look forward to hearing your comments about assassin stories and fave UNCLE moments :) -Jace
