Words and Pictures Museum

Kodak Moment #74

I got hundreds to thousands of photos through my life.  A lot of which would match up to stories here on Cowabunga Corner, but for one reason or another they are not chosen.  This does not mean that these photos are not worth sharing and do not hold stories of their own.  I would like to keep sharing what I can here on the site, so whenever I can I will share a photo and a story to go along with the photo.  If it’s a part of events that has been shared here, we will link back to the stories of the events themselves as well.  Hope everyone enjoys.  Today’s photo is from the Words & Pictures Museum in 1996.

Review: Paint and Pixel Festival 2012

There are some events I go too which are not really planned out.  For weeks I was planning to spend October 20th and 21st in Rhode Island for the Yu-Gi-Oh event.  Though during a visit to Northampton, MA with a few friends we learned of another event.  As Tokka and Fugitoid found a flyer in the Thrones Market for a local Art show.  The top of their Guest list, Peter Laird.  Going to be on the East Coast already, but I could not stay in Northampton.  We had to travel back down to New York City, I had to make the choice to spend the full weekend in Rhode Island or take Saturday for Northampton.  I made the wise choice of heading back up to Northampton.

Cowabunga Corner #94: Words and Pictures Parties

Hey everyone,

Words and Pictures Membership Party 1997

In honor of it being Kevin Eastman’s Birthday, a week from today, I would like to share one of my many stories of a time I met up with Kevin.  Today’s story goes back to 1997 at the Words & Pictures Museum.  It was time for the Words & Pictures membership party and a handful of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fans from the TMNT-L mailing list decided to meet up for the event this year.  It was a busy weekend.  On Thursday, Kevin was doing a speech about his life at the museum and we also had the airing of the second episode of the Next Mutation that Friday.

My first Internet meet up

Ever get nervous about meeting fellow fans from the Internet?  Ever wonder if the person you’re talking to sitting on the other side of the screen is really who they say they are?  Has this prevented you from going out and meeting fellow fans?  I know I was nervous when I first got online, all you heard on the news was the bad stuff.

Michele Ivey's "Cowabunga Corner" #70

Michele Ivey's "Cowabunga Corner" #44

In this episode I share memories of the Words & Pictures Museum. Cowabunga Corner #5 & #20 focused on the opening and closing of this museum. Here I talk about how I found the Museum and some memories I have. The Words & Pictures Museum has always meant a lot to me and I miss it.

Cowabunga Corner #20

In this episode I share video footage from July 1999 of the closing of the Words & Pictures Museum.

This is the Thank you speech to those who supported the Museum during the years that it was open. We also see Kevin get a few awards for the kindness he’s shared with others.  I filmed most of this video personally the other camera person was my sister Miki. I was filming through the full speech, I know the camera swings around a bit from time to time.

Cowabunga Corner #5

In this episode we show another area of the Ninja Turtle History that Cowabunga Corner will cover, this being Kevin Eastman’s “Words & Pictures Museum”.

The Museum was a comic book arts Museum, though the locals called it “The Ninja Turtles Museum”. They had a wonderful set up of original art work from all sorts of comic books, and even statues of the Ninja Turtles on the interactive floor.
