Monday Madness: GPK Goes Funko!

I have never been excited about new Funko figures. I like to buy used, cheaply priced stuff from the DI for goodness sake. Funko figures are new, expensive statues. I like statues, just not expensive ones. Despite my hesitance to purchase any Funko POP! figures I might just give into the madness next year when Garbage Pail Kids merch starts rolling in! 

Actually, I doubt I will buy any even then. I din't even buy a single pack of the blind bag GPK Minikins. I will probably ooh and aah at some GPK Funkos on store shelves and snap a few free pics and then move on with my life. Despite that fact, I couldn't help but get excited over the news.

Is anyone else excited for GPK Funko?

Sunday Reflections: National Geographic's Hardcore Hobbies

I recently came across National Geographic's new TV series Hardcore Collectors. It certainly sheds a dark light on collectors, I'm not sure what to think of it. I do agree that any collection can get out of hand and that family comes before collecting. I also believe it is possible to have a large collection and not have it affect your quality of life as long as it is organized and doesn't create a financial strain. I do feel like collectors are largely misunderstood and, though my collection of varied junk isn't huge, people often look at me like I have 2 heads when I try to explain that I collect toys.

Has anyone else watched the series? What do you think?

The Aquabats Tour Utah

So yeah, I noticed that The Aquabats! Super Show! is filmed right here in the good old Beehive State! Here are a few locales I recognized:

Ream's Food Store! Ream's is a quick 10 minute bike ride from my childhood home! We used to ride our bikes and roller blade here after school and spend our pennies on candies and other childhood delights.

Camp Tracy! I spent many a winter camp here as a Boy Scout, as well as several Cub Scout day camps.

Lagoon! Utah's premiere amusement park.

The Aquabats also made an appearance at the Salt Lake Comic Con.

Good News & November Break

Halloween came and went so fast! I had some many things I wanted to share and before I knew it time was up! Before I take a blogging break for the rest of the month until Creepmas rolls around again I just wanted to share some good news:


After a 5 years hiatus Homestarrunner presents a 2014 Halloween cartoon!!! So, go watch it, the costumes this year are great!

Enjoy the fall season everyone, rack some leaves, jump in them. Make a scarecrow, paint pumpkins, take walks in the mountains, play Animal Crossing during Harvest Festival, and make hand traced turkey cards.

I'll see you guys December 1st, Happy Thanksgiving!
