It's Not a Doll!!

This guy could take down an entire Barbie Dream House by breakfast. It's the latest from Sideshow Collectibles...a Cobra Trooper.

I'm gasping in wonder...

And check out all of this havock-wreaking gear!!

I love how this guy is packing 7 clips worth of ammo.

Oh Boxing Day

So, now that Christmas is gone for another year, I thought I'd turn my allegiance to England. You see, they have this holiday today called boxing day. I think it has to do with worshipping shipping containers or something.

Anyway, here's my ode to the box:

God bless us everyone.

Peace on Earth

Man, Oh, Man!! Christmas is almost here. As a kid, I ate up everything that had to do wih Christmas. And that included this very creepy Christmas cartoon:

Yay!! Mankind is gone for the holidays, and animals rule the world!!

Rockin' the Holidays

Throughout my life, Santa has left me some kicking gifts. And one of those was the gift of music. I present to you, theFisher Price Record Player.

Its simplicity is very futuristic. Its ruggedness amazing. Fisher Price knew that grubby little fingers have almost no cognizant motor skills. Plus, this being the 80's, this record player could take a direct hit from an ICBM launched by the commies.

And, come Christmas day, there was only one album powerful enough to entertain me for hours on end:

And when I say hours, I mean hours. I believe that to this day, my parents go blank-eyed and begin spouting drool whenever they hear this song.

A Brite Christmas

I knew at a young age that I would never be an artist. But that never seemed to deter my parents from trying to fertilize any hint of talent I may have. Thus, the Lite Brite for Christmas...

I would spend hours in the dark, insterting brightly colored pegs into the black construction paper mounted on the front of my Lite Brite. And the best part: Lite Brites came with templates, so no matter how inept one was, he/she could create a work of bright, plastic art.

Never has a light bulb brought so much high culture to one's life. And, get this, you can now bring out that inner Dali at home or at work with the Virtual Lite Brite!!
