    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.



    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. (


    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!


    Turns out Neil Patrick Harris is also a MAD fan and came up for a tour.


    And tech star David Pogue visited twice and stayed for hours.

    I suspect he'll still be up at the MAD offices even after they close in December 2017.


    A fun Facebook memory. 

    Dates back to the days when Blink Funlove (Chic Glitz' twin brother) hosted "You Want It, You Got It" on Nickelodeon's DON'T JUST SIT THERE. Blink was going to wear this for Halloween, but it's hasn't come back from the electrician yet. (The lights are being converted to LED's.)

    Thought I might wear Blink Funlove's Tux jacket for tonight's Giz Fiz, but Blink said his jacket has a nasty short-circuit. (Yes it lights up.) You may seen Blink Funlove on Nickelodeon's Don't Just Sit There. Happy Halloween, Blink!
