Sundance's Achievements

DeathSpider Embryo

DeathSpider Embryo (2/8)



  1. I don’t think we differ about our worldview I think we take different avenues and means, to achieve the same results. To preserve our film history and our stories, go hand in hand with a movie prop. I like looking back in history and seeing where we were and how far we have progressed. Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History is here to preserve our past and present in the entertainment history; among other things. From music, superheroes, even music, and comics. It’s a small part of our heritage, but vital to our way of life and thinking. “This Museum's popular entertainment collections hold some of the Smithsonian's most beloved artifacts. The ruby slippers worn by Judy Garland in The Wizard of Oz reside here, along with the Muppet character Kermit the Frog, and props from popular television series such as M*A*S*H and All in the Family. But as in many of the Museum's collections, the best-known objects are a small part of the story. The collection also encompasses many other artifacts of 19th- and 20th-century commercial theater, film, radio, and TV—some 50,000 sound recordings dating back to 1903; posters, publicity stills, and programs from films and performances; puppets; numerous items from World's Fairs from 1851 to 1992; and audiovisual materials on Groucho Marx, to name only a few.” I could spend days in the Smithsonian...I am a history geek! Kiva, does sound interesting and something I will address with the administrators. It would be great to branch out. I raise my plastic Solo cup (it’s red) to your rocinante cup! “Whatever, you LOVE you are...” ~Rumi 

  2. I have no sweaty t-shirts in my collection!! Sweat is very costly...and with DNA cloning and the advances of technology...it’s out of my range!!! I do have a tacky, crumbling, stick of gum that I found in one of Robert Redford’s shirt pockets! However, without proof that he touched it or thought about chewing it...it’s value diminishes each day!!!
  3. I belong to a prop group that is huge on FB. Would it interest you to know that while we do spend some major money on props for many it is more than just an expensive pastime or hobby? I can say we have changed lives in a village. Our donations of items to various charities...has benefitted Make-A-Wish, cancer research, animal shelters, children’s hospitals, Ronald McDonald’s Houses...just to name a few. Lives have been changed and transformed. It’s been nice to participate in giving back because I could donate Hollywood history to an auction that would raise money for things I hold dear to my heart. Especially, cancer research..I lost my father and my sister to cancer. Teresa, (my beautiful sister) donated her eyes...all she had left to give...now someone can see...TJ’s PSA on that touched my heart and soul. Also, it’s nice to know that we are preserving Hollywood history in some form. Films touch our lives and entertain us. In the past, studios would dump...these items... can you imagine..Judy Garland’s dress or ruby slippers being dumped? Gene Kelly’s outfit from Singing in the Rain, eaten by moths or dumped also? Of course, because of collectors, this part of our America film history has been preserved for generations to see. I collect whom and what I love in regards to film...for enjoyment and because their work touched my childhood and adulthood. Very proud to say I have also achieved having an item from every one of TJ’s films. To me, he’s worth my time and money and maybe one day I can donate his items to an archive or museum. We are fans, we just take it to another level. He has graciously authenticated items for me and admits he collects certain items as well. To watch Deep Blue Sea and know I have his “stunt wetsuit” or a shirt from Molly, just makes me smile, and has opened up my world to different friends and people, just like this forum. We are no different then the fans that were here in the TJ heyday, or the fans that travel worldwide to go to premieres or Comic Cons etc...to see or meet film heroes. I know a lady that owns TJ’s hero vest from The Punisher...she traveled many miles to see him at a Con...and brought the vest with her. As she approached him in line...she could see his eyes light up. When she got up to him, he asked if he could hold the vest. He validated her time, money, and trip, with his smile and questions. He was a bit overwhelmed to see something he had wore so many years ago, preserved in a fan’s home and hands! That alone...along with the reasons I mentioned is why I collect TJ...he loves his fans. His words to me about the Deep Blue Sea prop: “Says Jane and says ‘stunt’ so it looks like you got the real stunt suit!Nice find. Just don’t wear it on a hot day. ;)“TJ So, as you can see our time, money, effort, we do not considered as “thrown” away. We pay it forward, we love what we do, and love why we do it. Thanks for your response!

  8. This just came up today in my movie prop group on FB. I really liked this movie and believe TJ’s performance was so unrated. With Black Friday and Christmas coming, can I afford this prop? Where’s that money tree when you need it?
