A Calendar?? What a great idea. I'd most certainly want one.
And Zamm, could you please tone it down about Dental work. I don't know what it is, but everytime someone mentions Dental Work, my Teeth start bothering me!

I'm sorry... I promise not to mention the implants (10mm titanium allen screws wich are laser "micro-etched" so they have more surface area) that are going to be screwed into my upper jaw ( that is after the "Cadaver Bone" replacement to my empty jaw bone does it's work in the holes left by the vertically cracked root which is infected at both the apex and longitudinally along the fistula) then sown up for 3 months to see if they take ... Whooops!
No More Teeth Talk
Thompson Calendar...Great idea, I'm sure we could get our hands on 12 models, and probably some guns too!

I wish that I could get my hands on 12 models too!
The Thompson calendar sounds great tooo and I am sure with your tallent it will turn out excellent!

Hey, thanks for the compliment, but I'm not sure I'm up for a whole calendar!
I'm thinking along the lines of limited edition print, numbered and signed, real "high quality" type thing you would want to frame...
Give me some time to think about this, could be cool.
As for the calendar, we need sombody who has more contacts with commercial layout and printing, you know, someone that does books and things, ya know, nod nod!

Since when did Ted Turner join the message board?

| Zamm, you've got the whole year to ease into this...different shots in different seasons...find out who can do what for you, etc. I think a calendar like this would sell big time, not just among us Thompson perverts. You might be able to turn a nice piece of change on it, and spin the idea out over several years. That first pic was very creative.|
The "Thompson Memories" calendar.
February - a valentine from Big Al
March - an alternative means of automobile recycling
April - tilling the Spring flower bed at 800 RPM
May - ridding the yard of moles
June - when kitties go astray
July - proud hunter with Thompson beside dead African elephant
September - a different kind of leaf blower
October - dealing with the neighbor's jack-o-lantern
November - dancing rabbits
December - deer hunting with Tommy (lateral string of holes on trophy)
Well Phil, since you left out January, let me suggest the, "new snowblower and automatic ice remover, otherwise known as, The Heater."

you guys are stark-raving mad, trouble is I understand and agree!
Phil, you better patent them months before I do steal em!
Hey, How the hell did a bloody thread get named after me in the first place!!??

Another novel idea would be to find what dates gone by correlate with say 2006. If lucky it may match somewhere in the 20's or 30's.
Count me in for 2!

Here's the deal,
I am going to do a portfolio of hand editioned copper plate engravings ( they are called "phpotogravures, and were the way that photos were reproduced late 1800's-early 1900's ) of our favorite Thompsons in really nice setups, like Chris's infamous violin case photo.
Then Limited Editions, numbered, the whole bit. These things will look so f*king cool, they will belong in museums.
I don't know why I did not think of this before. Okay, that's going to happen on my end regardless.
Now, onto the poll. I think you should start a thread with the calendar idea, though i think skimply clad XX cromosomes may win out
Go to it, and watch inthe future for the Limited gravures, Z

Zamm is way too modest for his reputation. He has worked with some highly notable artists and has quite a reputation for his gravure work. Grab them if you can!!!!
Zamm, love that Spaghetti survivor. It has real gravitas.

Thanks for the kudos, your no slouch yourself!
Mike, I will and you shall... Just has to be the right image.
Really counting on this guy at the NYCpolice museum giving me the go-ahead to "shoot", as in photograph,
the Colt w/ the C drum out of it's display case.
Good things on the way.
