I know that BK a few short blocks down. The was a Sub-Center on the corner next to it and a Lemon Tree II sub place across the street. Happy times for me, too. I used to go to the 'Ulan's Bookstore' in the strip mall connected to Sub Center and buy my comics there on occasion as well. I still have dream of going in there and looking for the new issue of Creepy, Vampirella, the Avengers, Thor, or Detective Comics.
Oh yes, I know what you mean about Miami Beach today. It's not what it was at all. Sometimes when I watch the reruns of 'Surfside Six' on American Life cable channel I all but weep at what has happened to Miami Beach and South Florida in general. When we first moved there, it was sterling, glistening, open, uncrowded, and beautiful in every way, a real kind of paradise. In that sense, I think the recent 'Miami Vice' film was very honest about the look and tenor of Miami today.
I, too, remember how you could shake out the seaweed near the shore and find needle fish, trunk fish, crabs, shrimp, and all sorts of little sea creatures.
That was also a great era for concerts (mostly at the Hollywood Sportatorium), I saw Springsteen, Jimmy Buffet, Bob Seger, Fleetwood Mac, Boston, Steve Miller, Eric Clapton, Black Oak Arkansas, Bad Company, Queen, Heart, Yes, KISS, Linda Ronstadt, Cheap Trick and everyone else back then, and was able to meet Bad Company back stage.
I also remember the 8mm films at Starship; I bought 'The Monster That Challenged The World' there even though I didn't have a projector! I jsut liked to own it and look at the little colored box.
I've been a life-long Basilisk fan myself, and decry his death at the hands of Scourge. Like the Melter, we definitely need to see him back in action. With his powers and origin, far more than the Melter, I don't see why he simply can't just rise from the dead, or why a means to have him do so can't be found.
It's been 20 years, and all of Scourge's victims have been dead long enough: I'd like to see an arc in which they all return, in one fell swoop, Turner D. Century, Commander Kraken, the Vamp, Letha, the whole crew.
Hope Connecticut is working out for you better than NYC is for me; I'm simply not an urbanite. I'd rather be in WEstchester any day.
