    Post "Babylon 5" -- JMS' Yard Sale -- soon to be on EBAY

    Excerpts from a Zacalo Today e-mail newsletter:

    I know I'm going to hate myself for this (I've been known to bid on
    these things myself) -- but I didn't want any Babylon 5 Fan to NOT
    know about this yard sale JMS just announced. Here are the details
    as given by JMS:

    JMS YARD SALE
    Here's a note from JMS everyone will want to read:
    Date: 4/9/2005 9:11:29 AM
    Okay. That's it. I give up.

    Over the last few days, I've been trying to sort through the tons of
    boxes that have for the most part been sitting in storage for the
    last several years to try and find space for all this stuff, and
    there just isn't any. The floors are wall-to-wall with boxes,
    crates, palletes, you name it, the detritus of decades of making
    shows and writing comics and being a pack-rack. It has literally
    grown to overflow two rental storage facilities.

    **snippity doo-dah**

    It's going to be kind of a JMS retrospective in some ways, because
    as I said, this stuff covers decades...from memorabilia and
    storyboards for the Ghostbusters, He-Man and Captain Power series,
    original scripts from Twilight Zone and Murder, She Wrote...but the
    bulk of it is B5 stuff.

    There are the actual script books I used during production, into
    which I shoved the script I was working on, the breakdowns, shooting
    schedules, any storyboards that were needed...the whole thing, in
    one book per episode, some of which still have my original notations.

    There are episodic dailies tapes, with takes and bits not previously
    seen anywhere, posters, publicity material, a ton of stuff.

    Props from the show, from my personal collection, where I have
    doubles or just no place for them anymore.

    Another prime item is going to be one of two huge original art
    pieces that the late Peter Ledger did for me to help sell B5 itself,
    big, elaborate paintings, signed by Peter. The one I won't sell is
    the first painting of the B5 station itself from the outside; the
    one I just don't have room for is the very first
    visualization/painting of the Garden area, with the core shuttle,
    folks floating around, and in the bar, a fight breaking out between
    humans and aliens, with an early version of Garibaldi in the thick
    of it.

    There's caps, and a disco-style prototype of a B5 crew jacket, a few
    of the original blue key B5 symbol t-shirts made up before we did
    the pilot and given out at a couple of conventions, an assortment of
    souvenirs and some truly, truly weird ****, some of which nobody's
    ever heard of before, let alone seen.

    So starting sometime probably next week, the week of the 11th, and
    from time to time over the next month or so, keep an eye on Ebay.
    (I'm playing with the idea of doing this chronologically, from the
    earliest stuff to the latter stuff, but I don't know if I'm
    disciplined enough for that.) I likely won't put this stuff up every
    day, only when and as I think of it. So you may have days pass with
    nothing, then a day when four or five items go up. The Ebay user ID
    is babylon5auctions. Once I've cleared out enough room to actually
    see the floor again, the auctions will stop and that user ID will go
    away.

    Let the games begin.
