It’s past 10am on a NEEEEWWW DAAAY! So you know what that means…

To begin this day 3 of Desert Bus, why not check out some amazing Silent Auctions?
All of these end at 6:00pm PST.

To start, we’ve got a Paper Craft Kirby Shadowbox!

The shadowbox features several small cave scenes, showcasing Kirby and some of his many lovable partners seen in the game, as well as sparkles and treasure galore! Look at all that beautiful detail!

This auction is currently going for just over $250, but you’ve got lots of time to get that up there!

Next up we’ve got a wonderfully detailed yarn work Desert Bus on a plastic frame.

Made entirely from plastic canvas and yarn, it’s the little details that put it over the top:
-real plastic windows
-“Desert Bus” destination sign
-Loading Ready Run logo on the roof
-Desert Bus for Hope logo on the back
-and, of course, a tree air freshener hanging in the front windshield

This is going for over $1000 already!

And last we have another yarny wonder, a Dr. Mario Cross-Stitch.

A painstakingly detailed replica of the front cover of Dr. Mario’s first big portable adventure on the Game Boy.

This lot is going for just over $500.

moviebobMovieBob will be calling into Desert Bus at 6pm 7:15pm PST on Sunday, November 16th.

Writer, film reviewer and host of Escape to the Movies, The Big Picture, and MovieBob: Intermission on The Escapist. He has a love for early 80’s and 90’s video games and ripping apart bad movies. A focus of his is to give analysis of gaming culture and the industry in a style that is similar to a college-lit-class style know as “close reading”, also using overlaid imagery to support his points.

Along with his work on the Escapist, Bob also hosts The Adventures of Game OverThinker, a comedic series that combines video game news and commentary. Blurring the lines between reality and video games, OverThinker is a story driven analysis of gaming culture. This series led to the creation of Overbytes on ScrewAttack, with more of a focus on culture and tropes.

Bob has also written a book titled “Super Mario Bros. 3: Brick-by-Brick“, in which he deconstructs the game in the form of a “novelized Let’s Play” while analyzing the cultural significance and history of the Mario Bros. franchise.

He is also very active on his blog and twitter.
