Toylanta 2018!!

Toylanta was this weekend—it’s a big annual toy convention held in Atlanta over a weekend. It started as a hub for GI Joe collectors but expanded to include vintage toys across the board.

Monsters in the Movies: The Dark Crystal Skeksis-to-URru Guide!

This is a repost from my old blog, but I was inspired to bring it over after seeing The Dark Crystal on the big screen last week with Steve and my old high school pal Stephanie. What a great time!

Halloween Countdown 2017: FRIDAY THE THIRTEENTH!!!

Well, how could I let the ULTIMATE Friday the 13th go by without posting my hellacious pic of getting choked by Kane Hodder? He’s one of the biggest, baddest dudes in the horror industry and an amazing example of getting through tough times. Bullied and tormented as a kid, he grew up to be a powerhouse of a stuntman only to be burnt severely in a stunt mishap that nearly killed him. The entire story of his long and excruciating recovery, the emotional and physical damage it caused, his fight to break back into the industry and the success of landing the role of Jason Vorhees, is all told in his book, Unmasked–True Life Story of the World’s Most Prolific Cinematic Killer.
He’s another hero of mine–the amazing Kane Hodder! Happy Friday the 13th, everybody!!!!
