    Hi just thought i would show you my screen used crystal from the Roswell series the episode were they are trapped in the cave with all the bad crystals around them :) anyhow i bought it from the propstore of london paid one day received the next excellent service guys.
    The prop is basically just a block of clear blue resin so i made a display base and a little hidden lighting with light activated switch and recharchable batteries and bobs your uncle it really sets it off and makes it glow just like in the TV series very pleased with it now :)

    Cool.- can you post or scan any pics from it?

    I can't say I really followed the series a whole lot. Watched moreso once I found out JB was in it. A friend of my wifes actually told me he was in it. She must think he's a "hottie" or something. She asked if I knew him, cause he went to Richfield- She must have done her research :lol. I said yeah, why? She told me he was the lead character in the series.. so I started checking it out more.

    I can't say I'm friends with him now or even much in highschool, but was in pretty good aquaintance with him way back in the day. I hear from other peeps I run into, that he comes into town every so often and hangs out with fam/friends. I'll have to check and see when/if he comes back into town and get out to that "get together". I know I've been asked to see if he could attend a Sci fi convention here in town too, but again.. not on a personal level with him anymore.- Though, could see about contacting him and see if he remembers me. :p

    Hmm. doesn't look like anything from our books. Lockers are white. Ours were Maroon/Red.

    might be from some other actors school or something. Cool pic though.

    I'll have to see if I can post a pic of my junior High yr book. The drawings on the front, and main pictures thru-out were all Jason... I think he designed the book too.

    HEY JD,

    sorry for the crappy pics. hard to take close ups without the blur.. wish I had a scanner or my new digi was at home.

    anways, these are OLD pics from when I was in Jr High Scool (many moons ago). I was in 7th grade, and Jason was in 8th. We used to SK8 together.. Thrashers as we were known then. :p Tony Hawk and Powell was in full force.. haha.

    So, JB designed pretty much the whole yr book.. notice the sketch on front.. HIM.
    Large inner pics of him at each section.. I just added a few. He was into modeling even back then, so i think this was partial to that..

    pics:
    Front cover of yr book:
    [​IMG]

    sorry, this ones blurry.. JB's 8th grade photo.
    [​IMG]

    Heres one of the main page spreads of him.. This is where he signed everyone yr book that yr- Got his own page. (guess you could call this one of my claims to fame or my Roswell autograph :) )
    [​IMG]

    Heres anothe main page of him.. Starts the section to 8th grade.
    JB is on the right side.. 2nd column down.. 5th one over. (Same close up pic I posted up top)

    Enjoy. - If you want to see any others, LMK.. got all my high school yr books too.
    Thanks WC for hosting..

    since I was going thru it, thought I'd add another claim to fame from my highschool.. Darby Hendrickson. Hometown hockey stud. Plays in the NHL.. and played for our MN Wild Team when they first got going a few yrs ago.

    Sorry, didn't mean to hijack your post with these pics..

    Yeah, it is pretty weird when you see people you knew/hung out with or even lost touch with- make it big. Its awesome to see though.

    Another friend of mine from child hood works at the local radio station in town, I listen to their morning show every day on the way to work. (93x half * morning show- for you MN folks reading) Funny part is, that they are always joking around and he likes to bring up childhood crap we did to get in trouble back in the day.. just brings back memories cause I was right there with him. :lol

    He also went to school in Richfield, but went to a private school called Holy Angels. He graduated with Kelly Carlson.. if that rings a bell to you. She's an up and coming Hottie TV star. I think she's on the show Nip tuck? I don't watch it, but have seen her on tv being interviewed in the past, and was recently giving commentary on some show I just saw. *Guess she was also in Starship Troopers.*. Hes always talking about how he went to highschool with her on the radio... hehe. Gotta live vicariously (sp?) sometimes I guess.

    We should have a OT topic about famous people that we know... I know theres alot of peeps on this board that know a lot of different people. Would be cool to see a list.
