    Dick's Blog & Log...

    Here's stuff that's more than 140 characters so it won't fit on TWITTER, or photos or videos, stuff that I found interesting, and hope you might find it interesting too.

    8th Annual Giz Wiz Meet-Up - Sunday, October 21, 2018 - 2 to 4:30 PM. -- Live! at the Gizneyland Studio

    Friends, Fun, Match Game questions, lots of cheap, crappy prizes too! Maybe some expensive ones too.

    Since so many people asked to see the revamped Gizneyland studio, we thought we'd just have the meet-up there this year. Chad will be in his Giz Wiz Studio in Dallas, Texas and we'll do part of the meet-up 'live' via YouTube & GizWiz.TV for all those who can't make it in person! We'll post the time of the virtual party when we get closer to the meet-up date! Our chatroom will also be open so you can watch and comment. We hope to have at least one person at the party monitoring the chatroom at all during the show.

    If the weather is good, we'll also use the backyard where you can see the Gizneyland Railroad running. And meet Charlie and Dennis in person too!

    Of course it's all free, but we'd like to know if you're coming so we can save the proper amount of space. Just send an email to gizwizshow@gmail.com and put "Meet-Up" in the subject line. If you're bringing guests, "Meet-Up +1, 2" or whatever number of guests. Hope to see you there.

    So live or in-person, we hope to "see" you on October 21st, 2018!

    Here's a photo (via Joe Bolanos) of last year's meet-up. Now you can see why we want to move it out of the sight of other people.

    Who helps find all those gadgets for The Giz Wiz Show & World News Now?

    YepYes, Dennis Wunderlin. The number of products he's found and the number of videos he's shot for the Giz Wiz Show, our YouTube Channel and even World News Now have passed the 500 mark. Dennis not only designed the Giz Wiz logo, but he also roams the aisles at trade shows looking for gadgets for The Giz Wiz to use on his ABC News spots, the Giz Wiz Show, The Tech Guy Radio spots, and Computer America. He's done a couple of reviews of his own, but he prefer to remain behind the camera.

    In addition to shooting great videos, Dennis is a commercial artist for Metro Creative Graphics. He also does other freelance art. You can sample of his work at this website.

    MAD Magazine leaves New York City.

    To ease the sadness of MAD leaving NY, Dennis is helping me build a MAD memories wall at Gizneyland studio. It's a great background for Podcasts too. Still some work to be done, but What Me Worry? (Yes, MAD is moving to Burbank, California, and they'll be a whole new staff out there. However, Bill Morrison, the new MAD executive editor wants me to continue my 51 year streak of being in every issue of MAD, so I will. And I'll be doing it here from my Gizneyland studio, also home of the Giz Wiz Show. (www.gizwiz.tv)

    One of the things I'll miss most is being able to show high profile guests around the MAD offices.

    (June 2017) I promised Lin-Manuel Miranda (a huge MAD fan & a huge star!) a tour of MAD & today was the day. Great fun till Alfred E. showed up and pushed his way in!
