Today is October 2nd, the second day of my favorite month in my favorite season in my favorite part of the world. Two years ago, I wrote a post to celebrate the 1st of October as it coincided with the first true day of Fall, for though a calendar can call a day it claims […]
Ray Bradbury died today. Something Wicked This Way Comes is my favorite book. I always have a copy of it on my desk. This book is full of wordplay, as was Mr. Bradbury, of wit and alliteration and a feel of the fantastic. While Mr. Howard and Mr. Burrows taught me many things, it was […]
Dear Doug, Dear Luke, It was nice to have you crash visit at our place the other night afternoon. Staying up late Eating pizza and watching Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog, The Legend of Neil, and Father Ted Olympic Curling while you opened all the transformers we picked up for you. But I want you […]

So, I picked up an Elite Guard Bumblebee as a present for my future Mrs. After a quick custom mod, I gotta say… He’s pretty impressive. Thankfully he does not have a yellow head, as all the promo, stock, and package pictures show. The yellow that is there actually enhances the black (and the black […]
Lots of spam comments lately. Most of them are repetitive comments saying some slight variation of ‘hey good post, very thoughtful. OH BY THE WAY I FOUND A PLACE TO WATCH TRANSFORMERS 2 ONLINE CLIK HERE KAY THANKS!” Seriously. What idiot thinks this is good marketing for anything? With this being mainly (so far) a […]
Last weekend was the grand start of another new line, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Call em Bionicle, Bayformers, Ugly, or just plane Awesome, they’re here for the next couple of years. With the demise of Animated confirmed at Botcon, and Universe\Classics 3.0 a long way off, how many of you will drown your sorrows […]
