Everyone knows MIA sucks

It's come to my attention that some of the recaps have missing or dead picture files and all I don't want to do is click click click on every entry. Every title should have a picture of the book and sometimes additional pix throughout the entry. If you spy an entry missing this junk, leave a comment below or email me so I can fix everything. And by fix everything, I mean of course that I will solve to the best of my abilities any additional personal problems or crises you may be experiencing

I'm glad that R.L. Stine released you from your cage for a few minutes and let you use the computer to write this post.

I've noticed this on a few entries while rereading them but the main problem I've had is that it's a sporadic problem. When I first found the site, the pictures in "Let's Get Invisible" didn't work, now they do.

Please do not read this comment.

You know what my crisis is? No new reviews!

gene said...

i need validation

Groggy Dundee said...

If you mean the singer I'd respectfully disagree.

mat 9 said...

i looked at the cry of the cat entry and it didnt have a cover. also when are you gonna do new reviews.

Robin said...

"May the odds be ever in your favor."

Ankara Fernicoe said...

i thought the missing pictures on Let's Get Invisible were a joke.
I'm glad you're alive, Troy!

Robin said...

I'm too comment to drunk.

Robin said...

By the way, I've accidently typed "bloggerbear.com" instead of "bloggerbeware.com" several times.

whats troys new blog called?

Anonymous said...

Props to Troy for posting seven of eight comments which have nothing to do with what he asked about. (At least eight of nine, now.) ...New reviews would be amazing, though.

Haven't noticed any busted links and I just reread your entire blog these past two months.
Glad to see you're still around!

dillin said...

Are you talking about the singer? Because she's awesome.

Robin said...

"Tick, tock. This is a clock."

Robin said...

My random quotes and non-sensical remarks are merely a method of nagging Troy into updating.

Anonymous said...

Did you put the blog on hiatus because there really WERE only so many times you could say the book under discussion was the worst Goosebumps book ever?

Groggy Dundee said...

Dillin: Hear hear!

chris said...

The original series and 2000 series were completed, now all that's left is the Horrorland books to complete the trillogy. You can do it!

So i just read an Rl Stine interview. he was asked which Goosebumps character he is the most like.

his answer...was evan.

seems about right.

I couldn't have written a better response

I don't know. Robby Schwartz from Dr. Maniac Vs. Robby Schwartz is really blatantly just Stine as a boy.

Benny here. Troy when is the next update going to be posted.

it's now been ONE year! geez, i hate this hiatus!

The picture of the cover for the "My Hairiest Adventure" book is gone.

Groggy Dundee said...

Troy, are you aware that this blog has its own TV Tropes page? I don't know if that's an honor or a putdown of some sort.

Anonymous said...

Oh my god, you need to come back. I do not have enough of validation for reading all those Stine books back in the day (which I only did so I could exceed the book list requirements in class, and then get on with my own damn reading).

I can understand being distracted by Adventures in Babysitting over at Shuelogy, but six months have passed! MY RSS FEEDS MISS YOU.

no joke

Groggy Dundee said...

I forgot to mention that I recently read Why I Quit Zombie School, one of the more recent Horrorland books. The following passage is pretty representative:

"Gallons of thick brown vomit spewed up like an erupting volcano."

So, yeah. Just in case you thought Series 2000 was the ultimate toilet bowl, Stine again seeks to confound expectations.

Ryuhza said...

Troy, it's 2013 and I'm crying. What happened?

Dracobolt said...

Looks like The Abominable Snowman of Pasadena is also missing its image. =)

Love your work, and hope to see two of my favorite articles fixed!

The original series covers as well as the other images used in their entries are gone. All of the Imageshack images, it seems.
