Back from Washington D.C.

Arlington National Cemetery at the Tomb of the Unknowns. 
The When It Was Cool family has safely returned from a great visit to Washington DC.  We were blessed with great weather and a smooth trip the whole way there.  Infamous DC traffic wasn't even that bad.  We hit all the sites you would expect such as Arlington National Cemetery where we not only got to see the changing of the guards at the Tomb of the Unknowns but also two wreath changing ceremonies.  I should have video of that on our YouTube channel by the weekend.

All of the monuments and memorials on the National Mall were well worth seeing.  We will talk about some of our favorites when we record a new When It Was Cool Podcast sometime this week.  The biggest surprise of the trip was just how impressive the National Cathedral was.  We both loved the incredible building with it's Gothic architecture.  

I have lots of recording to do this week.  The July Classic Wrestling Marathon is almost here over at Wresting Observer and I am mixing the shows right now for it.  31 shows in 31 days!  Whew!  Hopefully it will bring some new visitors over to When It Was Cool.

It was nice to wake up to yet another new Patreon supporter this morning.  Once we hit 50 I am going to open up a new stream at iTunes where you can download all our free shows on one feed if you like.  That way you can get the When It Was Cool Podcast, Up Hill Both Ways, Wrestling With the Dawg, NoFriender Thrash Metal Show Podcast, and the new Champions at Heart podcasts all in with one iTunes subscription if you want.

Thank you again for checking out When It Was Cool.  I'll be working on audio all week so there probably won't be any new articles until the weekend.

Thank you!
Karl Stern

G.I. Joe is... dead. And I know exactly who to blame.

G.I. Joe is dead.  R.I.P.  Rest in Peace.  I have followed the property continuously since 1982 when I bought most of the first series "straight arms" off the shelf.  I read every issue of the Marvel Comics G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero comic book series straight off the shelf beginning at issue seven.  I was more a fan of the comics than of the Sunbow cartoon series but I have still seen every one of them.

Even through the "dark years" of the late 1990s when there weren't any G.I. Joe products on the shelf, I continued to be a fan, collecting figures off of eBay and flea markets.  I didn't even hate the movies.  Ok, the first one was a little rough, but I don't hate it.  I am as hardcore a G.I. Joe fan and collector as you will find.  While I'm not a famous or a well known member of the online community, I watch all the videos from the greats like FormBX257 and Hooded Cobra Commander 788.  I am a big fan of GIJoburg podcast, Joe on Joe, Star Joes
