Hi Everyone,

(I'll start by saying that I'm not sure this is the right place to post this...but here goes!) My name is Jim, and I'm not only a G.I. Joe kid, I'm also an Associate Producer for VH1's Totally Obsessed. This new show takes a fun look at Americans' obsession with everything related to pop culture, the truly bizarre, and the just plain obsurd.

The greatest part of my job is being paid to talk to people who share my interests and passions. I'm wondering if there's any of you who would like to discuss your interest in G.I. Joe with me as a possible story for the show? I'd be happy to tell you more about our submission process, which includes putting together a 5-10 minute videotape. And the shipping is free!

You certainly do not need to be a nutcase to take part in our show. Don't get me wrong, if you're planning on naming your first male child Duke or Grunt, I'd love to hear from you as well. ;)

Thanks for your time, and feel free to send me an email at: [email protected] for more information.

Jeez. Someone was just talking about this. Well gang, here is your chance to show the world how much of a freak you are. :D Not for me though. I have no interest in getting on TV and there are far to many other people that blow my knowledge, collection and obsession of GIJoe out of the water.

Hey everyone,

I wanted to thank those of you who have sent me emails regarding this project. And, a big thanks to everyone for having such a positive attitude towards me and the show. I will be replying to all of your emails today.

My door is always open for suggestions and comments! :D

All the best,

Jim - [email protected]

Have you posted this in the joecustoms.com forum? It might be good for your show to talk about people who customize their joes...

actually, if you ever want to do something about some horror movie freak, thatd be me. I have 1,000s of movies from across the globe, theatrical posters, props, anything you can imagine. I have 2 rooms jam packed with stuff and half of my basement with stuff in boxes that cant even be displayed anywhere.

You know I would have done this .I contacted the guy,and he gave me a deadline that was less than aweek away.I would have never had time to get my collection ready.Did anyone else actually apply?
