I've picked up a lot of fun stuff since I last posted here. I took a trip to Walt Disney World and posted nothing. I stayed silent through Comic Con and all the other nerdcentric news producing events. Star Wars Episode VII got a name and we found out a trailer is comming Friday and I did not blog.
All of that perfectly blogworthy material and this is what finally forces me to break my blogging apathy:
Kinda loosing my shit a little over this. Along side Mad Magazine, GPK perfectly define my childhood.
GPK Wacky Wobblers and POP! will certainly count among my favorite 2015 releases.
As can be assessed by looking at my lack of activity here, I haven't been up for blogging lately.
I'm still collecting, acquiring, and curating. I just haven't felt the need to write about it.
Of course, as evidenced by this blog, I'm not much of a writer. I started this as an extension of my Flickr photo-stream, as a way to elaborate on what I was doing over there.
I'm not a fan of the new Flickr interface and I miss the Picnik photo editing software so I haven't been active there much either.
So, time to try something new. I'm going to give this Instagram business a try. I'm a novice, still learning about the app and the hashtagging and whatnot so it might be rough at first. I'm using the same handle ronsrandomstuff, if you're inclined to take a peek.
This blog will remain, and I'm sure I'll post from time to time. Just time to give something new a go.
I was fortunate enough to win a Kidrobot blind packed Simpsons figure on the Butterfinger Facebook page prior to Thanksgiving last year. It was a pleasant St. Patricks Day surprise to find that it was delivered this afternoon.
After unwrapping I was happy to see I scored a rareish Disco Stu. Sweet.
I was less happy about the letter included with my prize . . .
I have never "laid a finger on Bart's but" and I don't appreciate the accusation.
I kid, I kid, I am stoked to add this figure to my Simpsons roster and I'm sure the fine folks at ePrize will be more mindful of their abreviations in the future.
This thing is making me insanely happy. Holding it, it just feels right, has nice heft to it. It's limited articulation, vintage lightsaberesque action feature, and just the right amount of detail make this fella feel perfect.
I highly recommend this and will be trying to pick up the rest soon.
Can't wait to see what else comes of the Re-Action line.
