Here ya go folks, what we've all been waiting for... drum roll pleez.... Jinx toys!!!!... The correct name for them would be Jinx Figgums... or inaction figures...lol... I had the brilliant idea of making one master head and then making poses as they popped into my head, so more poses ar on the way...lol... This is a collage, rather than make 3 posts for each one... but they came out surprisingly well for the first batch and being prototypes and all... i couldnt be happier with them, considering i hate all my shit...lol... Wish there was some way i could market these or sell them or somehow make money off them...lol... If anyone has any ideas lemme know, and i can make them for anyone who wants them too... I can market them as good luck pieces too, contrary to what people believe about bad luck being attached to black cats.. which is bullshit, cuz our 2 black cats, Mina, now Jinx, have brought us nothing but good luck and happiness... i may post more pics later with more poses, cuz these bodies with the head are actually poseable to a certain degree which is very cool too... So enjoy and soak in the EBIL... muah hah hah....lol

Love this logo so much i made a buncha shirts that i gave out to friends and a few people, and hopefully will be busy with new art stuff, so yes this brand is still alive and kicking and ready to make some killer new shit...lol... and again... Fun Cute and Cuddly... ummm, Kuddly... FCC, then FCK cuz FCC was already taken... and it looks like FUCK... god i'm good, i got a million of em...lol
Here is the logo of my new brainchild, a graphics brand and non-existant mini company, like FCK industries, which is like the father company in this case...lol.. anyways, confusion aside, this is my facebook page where people can reach me if they want band logos or anything art related... just look up that name in facebook, spelled just like this, "deadEnd graffixx", and BAMMM!!, you're on your way to gettin some kickass art done...lol... Well, heres the logo for the project, cuz you guys know how i feel about logos...lol... This one was so easy it kinda happened in my sleep, and i like the smaller one too that would look nice on caps or mugs or stuff like that, i always have that shit in mind when i make a logo, so maybe i'll go to cafe press and get some of this shit made... i'm a sucker for my own shit...lol
This is a little cartoon project i'm workin on for fun... I find pics on the interwebs of disasters, tragedies, horrific snapshots, crashes, etc... and i put a little cat in there somewhere to hint that she coulda been the cause of the trouble... seemed like a fun, easy, almost too easy idea, but i figured why not, i'm bored and it'll be fun... lol.. plus i'm gonna make the Jinx character into little sculpey toys too... so if this takes off and i have fans of the project and whatnot, i'll be able to make you guys little toys to go with the cartoon... Well anyways, this is the title page and logo for the project... I love logos, can't get enough of em...lol... Maybe i'll even do shirts and stuff too, who knows?... well, anyhoo, next time you see a horrible accident or tragedy, look around, there could be a little black cat slinking around that had absolutely nothing to do with it... Like Jinkers here in my apartment... i hear a crash or boom, and sure enough, theres the little creature, peekin around the mess i have to fix and clean up...lol...

Sorry, kinda let thhings slide here a bit... havent posted in awhile, but all is good, just been busy with a ton of other shit, and just kinda forgot to post on here...lol.. i'm a bad blogger i guess... been slaggin on my xbox blog too, but i'm gettin back on track with that one too... I made a new facebook artist page to try and get some work artwise, band logos or anything... actually dyin to do a band logo, just oozing with inspiration and shit, so i know it would kick ass...lol.. my facebook page is DeadEnd Graffixx, so look that up and friend me... I found this logo the other day, i did this like a few years ago for a contest when the metal band Lizzy Borden was having a contest for a new logo design.. they didnt want to change it too much, just kinda revitalize it, and keep the same feel, just juice it up, and thats what i did... i think this one blows the old logo away, nd i think they didnt even go with a revtalized one... and who knows, maybe they never even got the ones i sent.. cuz i sent a few, this rusty one, one with a flag, and one shiny metal... but maybe they'll stumble across this blog, see the killer new version i did if they never got my submissions, and BAMMM!, they'll use it and i'll be giddy as a school girl...lol... anyways, i LOVE this logo, i have no idea how the band didnt dig it... oh wells, if anyone has any connections with the band, forward them here so they can see it...lol...

Here i am rockin out with BC Rich Warlock wearing my Halford hat... sorry, don't have assless chaps so i cant't complete the full ensemble...lol.. Halford is the Metal God, whatever his sexual preference is, I love him no matter what... um, love not in a gay way, love in he's like one of the coolest motherfuckers in metal and still one of the best voices in music no matter what genre he sings, he's a badass... well i'm continuing my annoying assault on all your patiences out there with my annoying little likeness of myself...lol.. i'm having fun, so thats all that counts...lol... Just keeping busy till i can play xbox360 again when the nascar race is over, and i already got all my dinner ingredients prepped and ready to go too, making salmon and teriyaki rice and asparagus... nom nom nom... I'm like a gourmet chef too, my list of talents just grows like everyday, God, i'm awesome...lol... and delusional too...lol
I know i'm gonna get really annoying with my little doll, but oh well, i really am i annoying in real life anyways...lol... Keep making little additions to Munny me like a new strand of hair or another piece in my arm tattoos.. but i think i'm done, i think i already overdid it, so i'll stop now...lol... well here i am with samurai sword slaying a dragon and saving a damsel in the background...and rockin out my new hat... payin homage to the metal God, Rob Halford... in my next post i'll be rockin out out for real and wearing my Halford hat too... told ya i was gonna be annoying... Anne is watching Nascar so i can't play xbox360 so i'll be keeping amused by annoying you guys makin blog posts and facebook posts too...lol... you can add me as a friend on facebook just by searching my name, its pretty easy...

Here is a close up of the Jinx figgum, by herself, not to be upstaged by sharing the same frame as my awesomeness...lol... And i've coined my own word that i'll be using from now on to describe my little creations and toys... they're to be known as "figgums" from here on out... you heard it here first folks.. so when you here kids on the street, you know, the "cool kids", throwing around this vernacular, you'll know where it came from... cuz i know i havent been hangin around any mentally retarded folks that would've mangled the language in any way to come up with a word as goofy or clown shoes as the word "figgum"... see, that ones all mine, bitches...lol... will be posting more pics and stuff as i make more stuff or come up with more pics or close ups, i'm bored so why the fuck not...lol...
Here's the cutest lil badass motherfucker on the planet... and the guy with the greasy hair next to her...lol.. Munny Me and Jinkers... and i'm holding my japanese katana in one hand and my BC Rich Warlock in the other... Every action figure needs accessories, so now i have accessories pack no.1...lol.. will have to think of accessorie pack no.2... This little figgum and his cat came out so cool... and actually made a few mistakes that i wanted to fix when i was doin it, but i let it go and i was still happy with the results... the pic of just me is up as my facebook profile pic and maybe i'll use this one too someday... maybe down the road i'll photoshop the little guy into some funny pics and have him go on adventures... this will be fun... buckle up folks, i'm takin the dirt road road home...lol...
Here ya have it, one of the coolest things on the planet, second only to me... which makes sense since its ME immortalized in vinyl form... Thanx to these little things called Munny minis, which are blank white vinyl toys, anyone can make these things into whatever they please... and what pleased me at the moment was to make an action figure of me, currently what i look like now with stringy greasy bangs, arm and neck tattooes, my watch, even my black nails...lol.. hopefully i didnt miss any details, but this is mindblowing in its cuteness,accuracy and plain old mindblowingness...lol.. and coming soon will be accessories for the little Munny Me, like a black cat named Jinkers, a samurai sword, a Warlock guitar, a nerf gun, game controller... all things i normally play with on a daily basis...lol... I'll sum munny me up in one of Anne's favorite words..."SQUEEEEE!!!!"....lol

Here is a model i made when i was like 10 or 11 years old... Thought it was lost forever and the other day when i was goin thru my dads attic looking for an old boardgame, i stumbled across it... a few pieces were broken off and missing, so today i made them outta sculpey and replaced em... I must say i did a pretty good job on this, paint job and all, and the fact it was a Japanese model kit, with Japanese instructions, AND I WAS 10!...lol... so yeah, fond childhood memories come flooding back when i look at it... the little models around it were from the recent movie i just got off e-bay, which is an amazing movie, worth tracking down of you're a starblazers fan.. even if you're not, and just a fan of good sci-fi, it was an amazing film... i know i'm gonna watch it many times... i've already watched it like 3 times already, and the first time i watched it, it was without subtitles, just straight up Japanese, and i still loved it...lol... the movie is called "Space Battleship Yamato".. and make sure you get a DVD with English subtitles.. they're floatin around ebay for around 9 to 12 bucks, great price for such a great unknown movie... what are you waiting for?... get on ebay and buy one now!... This model kit is actually really rare and worth alot i think, but unassembled and not painted by a nerdy little 10 year old who was obsessed with Japanese anime...lol... oh that was such a kinder, gentler time...lol.. look what i'v become, scroll down a few posts of me in the Japanese domo onesy...lol... thats what happens, so parents, keep your kids away from Japanese cartoons... i should be a poster child for so many things...lol
Here i am in my newest onesy...and right after i took this pic, the goddamned zipper broke...so i havent been able to wear it since... so i'm in the process of finding a tailor or cleaners that do alterations and such that can fix my zipper... and i loved this one too... dammit... and thats the hood, with my head down you can see my nasty beard stickin out... kinda kills the illusion, oh well...lol... I'm wearing my blue onesy right now as i'm writing this blog, in heavenly comfort i might add... oh its so comfortable and cozy in this thing, you have no idea...lol

I discovered this site one night while watching Attack of the Show on G4 on cable... The site is called welovefine.com, and they specialize in really cool art versions as t-shirt prints... and that night on AOTS they gave a promotional code for like 15% off your order, which is what prompted me to check it out and make an order.. I got 2 art-nouveau versions of Rogue and Mystique from the X-Men, done like Alphonse Mucha, not sure if i spelled that right...lol.. would do them, in the art nouveau style which i love... and i got Anne a My little Pony shirt done in the same art style... the shirts came today and they are great quality prints on really soft shirts, and as a gift they gave us this Hello Kitty laundry bag!... this thing is killer and its HUGE!!!!... thats what she said...lol... can never resist that line, thank you Steve Carell..lol.. so definitely check these guys out if you want really cool geek wear, they have a HUGE selection in every genre imaginable done by really great artists... this site was definitely a great find we stumbled across, so check em out.... nothing scary today, but in the next couple of days i'll post a pic of myself in a new onesy... i love these things, they are so friggin comfortable... the new onesy is from Nightmare Before X-mas, and its Jack Skellingtons costume, black with white pinstripes, and it has a hood which is embroidered and its Jack's head with the evil smile!... so you've been warned, watch out for it...lol

Title says it all... just got out of the shower so hair is slicked back and wet, and this is my new onesy... My Domo Onesy... this character is Japans version of Gumby, look up Domo or Domokon on the interwebs for the full story... This is the most comfortable thing i ever wore... even better than the blue forever lazy... only drawback on this one is there is no back door... Ruh-Roh!!!... which means won't be easy access back there and i can't back that shit up like i can with my blue one... oh well, the price you have to pay for fashion... Funny thing is i'm wearing this out tomorrow to visit my dad at the nursing home he is staying for his leg rehab, cuz tomorrow is Bingo nite, this should go over well with the citizens at the home while i enjoy a night of bing with them...lol... most will think they're hallucinatin off their pain meds or something...lol.. most probly will be so god help them, who know what i'll look like to them...lol...

Got this last nite after lookin for it for over a year, finally found it at Walmart.. Its called the Forever Lazy....

She's understanding tho and present company excluded about being alone... she's takin one for the team and stayin with me, makin it work...lol...

I just got it cuz of the deal i got on it, and there is a new video game comin out soon that you use a real guitar to play it, and did i mention the great price?...lol... 59.99, i still cant believe the price, mind you its used and beat up and stuff and has issues, but so do i...lol... this thing is less beat up and less issues than me, so we were meant for each other...lol.. this is like my soulmate of guitars...lol... the red splotch you see is just a pick i taped there so i always have a pick and won't lose it... I also got a Forever Lazy last nite.. for those of you unfamiliar with that, its like a onesy for adults... has a back door zipper and everything... and i got it in blue, so i look like the cookie monster or a giant blue baby... sexy baby i might add...lol... got this sexy guitar, my sexy new outfit... Annes gonna have some competition in the sexy dept over here... hubba hubba, i cant keep my hands off myself....lol... be back later with a pic of me in my blue baby pajamas...

Monday, October 10, 2011
Be sure to check out my video bar off to the right, loaded it up with hilarious vids by one of my favorite bands Steel Panther.... these guys seriously kick ass and write some funny shit while sounding like real 80's metal...lol.. and here is a favorite pic of Jinkers when i started this blog... the joke was the old one..."every time you masturbate, God kills a kitten", so i just did my version of it...lol
Here she is again, for halloween... so adorable, hard to believe this cat accidentally almost tore off my nose once, sliced clean thru a nostril and claw sunk deep into my septum.. she got spooked when i picked her up snuggled... i guess never snuggle with a cat who has wolverine like talons...lol... we dont believe in declawing cuz thats inhumane, its like cutting off the top part of a humans finger at the knuckle.. but i lost like a gallon of blood that nite, and Anne was urging me to got the hospital cuz i felt the right nostril cut clean thru... so i stopped the bleeding best i could by making a paste from blood and triple antibiotic ointment and glued my nose back together... was a little off so if you look really close you can see a lins and limp where i didnt match it perfectly...lol.. but scars add character.. i have enough of those....
Here is our beautiful black cat Jinkers, Jinx, Jinkums, she answers to like 20 variations...lol.. but had to post this and will post others for october and halloween, she's a Halloween cat, cuz as you can see from my other posts, every day is halloween here, i never put that shit away, all my punkins, skulls and stuff, stays up year round... thats how i roll....
Not many single bedroom apts have their own punkin patches, but mine does, and its looked over by Buffy, so don't get any silly ideas...lol... just put the tombstone and some other little things in there recently to add to the flavor, i know, i need help...lol... and yes, that is my scarf, very similar to the one in that cartoon, despicable me.. that fucker is 18 feet of scarf... made it myself, you can't handle that much scarf, but i sure as hell can...
Here are 2 shelves of my collection, more all over the apartment, but in here are some of my favorite and rarest pieces, i'll leave it to you to click on the pic, zoom in and find all the hidden characters and shit... the mickey mouse watch in the far left corner was mine as a kid, mint condition in case, new on amazon, they want 350 bucks, so i dont even know how much an antique one is...lol... all kind of stuff like a thunder cats sword of omens, hard to spot and pretty new addition... mint condition star hawk there too... all the battle of the planets series 1 figures... and all the macfarlane sets like twisted christmas and land of oz when they used to make cool sets like that, now they just make halo figures and sports dolls... i dont mind the halos tho, i have them all over the apt...lol... and thats my live katana, hand made, i really oil it like every few weeks, its a real functioning cut a zombie in half, razor sharp can slice thru a sticky note sumbitch, love that thing...lol.. well knock yourselves out and see what you can find here...lol
Monday, October 3, 2011
Here is what a real gamer/loser/eclectic-weirdo/'s living room looks like... another reason i say Anne is a saint because she doesnt mind my decorating style...lol... i saw a pic of this amazing looking minimalist living room this morning, and thats what i know Anne wishes ours looked like, and thats what inspired me to take this pic...lol...again, its hi res, so the fun here is to zoom in and see the weird details, like the dreamcast, the 3DO, the planetarium collection, the telescope, the gargoyle collection, etc etc, it goes on and on and on the weird stuff i have here... the home theater setup i have are the sony tower speakers on the sides, and then a center channel and 2 pyramid speakers you cant see, but this to me was the best setup they made before they went to the small tiny speaker setups on the poles, i hated those, so i had to track this setup down till i found it... each speaker has a subwoofer built into its base, which accounts for how heavy each tower is, crazy heavy...lol... and XBOX360 is my current console of choice for all my gaming, and on retro nites i play some PS2, dreamcast and 3DO, which are really great fun systems, and i have nice libraries for all of them... huge gaming nerd besides all my other hobbies... gamertag is fundead for anyone who is on their and would like to add me as a friend, that would be cool... so off now to play some games.. have fun exploring that pic and lemme know anything cool you find that struck a chord with any of you out there...lol
Sunday, October 2, 2011
Here is a pic i took for Anne tonight, figured i'd post it here to show that we're crazy cat people and we only have 1 cat... That's all it takes really, considering we were plain crazy in the first place... all we're doin is puttin another word we associate with and BLAM, another way to describe us...lol... Under the pile you can see the latest issue of Cat Fancy, which is basically porn to cat people... Just subscribed to it today for Anne since its like 5 bucks at petsmart, and like 13 for the year when you subscribe, so had to do that... and it's even got centerfolds... hubba hubba...
Saturday, October 1, 2011
This is it folks, this is where the magic happens and i sit in my pain and write these 2 crappy blogs, insights into my wonderfully pathetic existence...lol... ah, it aint that bad, i got Anne and Jinkers and all this wonderful tech and toys, so i make the best of what i've got... you can only see the mouse on the left, but farther left off screen is my laptop which i use like a desktop, then there is another 19 inch monitor next to that for an as of yet broken PC..lol.. no rush to fix it cuz i have my mac here and my PC needs are taken care of with the laptop, which is a pretty good laptop, even for gaming, has a decent video card in it, so its pretty cool...as always, if you're bored, click on the pic for a bigger version so you can zoom in and marvel at some of the tiny details of my life like my Marvel Squinkies, my little Baby Jeebus, and he's holding my mom's wedding band, which she passed on to me when she passed around 9 years ago... But yeah, theres alot to see in this pic, and this is only like 1 tenth of the clutter and chaos of the rest of the apartment...lol.. but its cool clutter, cuz its cool rare shit you're never gonna see anywhere else in the boring outside world... i tell evryone, if i'm gonna be a hermit, i'm gonna surround myself with all the coolest toys and shit i can get my grubby little mitts on...lol... this place is like a bizzarre little museum of oddities and treasures, and i love it, so feel free to explore it with me as i make more posts and pics of the place and all of its nifty little inhabitants...lol
Friday, September 30, 2011
Just got these tday, and i'm as giddy as a schoolgirl...lol... This is the complete set, all 48 of the Arkham Horror investigators miniatures... sorry about the frontline being blurry, i guess the camera thought the point of focus was the center of the crowd of figures, DOH!!!... was lazy and didnt feel like retaking it, so oh well...lol... anyways, having the complete set is pretty rare cuz according to the fantasy flight website, the entire set isnt available at retail brick and mortar stores due to some stupid bullshit, so here ya go, soak em all in, i'm gonna be drooling all over these things tonight... drooling right now but that might be cuz my meatloaf and tatoes just came out of the oven and i'm hungry, nom nom nom....lol... These will work also with the Elder Sign game i just got, cuz that game uses the same investigators as Arkham Horror, which is the reason i wanted them, cuz the character markers that came with the game were these little cardboard chits, so that sucked, chitty is more like it..lol.. i crack myself up... and i've been playing elder sign solo alot so i decided to splurge and go for it, and i couldnt be happier, and these things werent cheap.. i take this chit very serious so i had to get these, couldnt help myself... anyways remember to click on the pics here cuz as always these pics are in hi-res so they blow up nice so you can see all the details and chit... off to eat my meatloafs and tatoes, nom nom nom, be back later with a new post...
Wednesday, September 28, 2011
Here is the saber with blade lit up... This pic doesnt do it justice cuz the flash washes out the brightness of the bade which is pretty friggin bright and intense... Like i said before, these things are awesome and for hardcore nerds only, cuz the average person can't appreciate how awesome these things are... nerds do....lol.. which makes us even more awesome, cuz nerds are awesome to start with... nerds armed with a handmade custom lightsaber are too awesome for mere words...lol.. so that makes me pretty friggin awesome..lol.. i know, i'm pretty deluded and odd, but with all the shit i have goin on in my life, things like this make it a lot better...lol... This pic has the green lit up, but i can make seven different colors by mixing them with the 3 RGB switches on the hilt... the bottom fourth switch is the master switch... and the pommel is from the war glaive model which i just got yesterday... all the parts for these things are all TCSS certified and all compatible so you can mix and swap out parts so you can have a one of a kind saber.. they actually all are one of a kind cuz they're all handmade to your specs that you fill out when you order them, which is awesome, cuz there are a ton of options on these things so you really do have a custom one of a kind piece when you're all done... again, i can't say enough good things about these sabers and the company that makes these models, which is www.ultrasabers.com... go there and get one of these things today, you won't be sorry, and they have a TON of models to start with, then you start adding all the features you want... I love my saber, and i'm a huge nerd....lol
Here is one of my loves of my life, my Ultrasaber... This is her unlit, will post another pic next with the midgrade normal blade lit... I also have the midgrade ultra-edge blade too which is awesome and a little bit brighter... This saber is also customized more cuz i put a war glaive pommel on it that resonates louder, so it sounds even better than the regular pommel that came with this model, which is the Bellicose.. The company that makes these by hand is called www.ultrasabers.com... these guys are GOOD... and these sabers are made for actual duelling, thats what this company specializes in, sabers you can actually duel with, which is fun as hell... duelling is like a choreographed dance, look up some vids of this on youtube, its amazing and fun to watch.. so i'm actually getting better at spinning this thing really fast from my right hand to my left and back again, which is actually pretty hard, especially when you do it really fast, which looks cool as hell at nite when the blade is lit... This is also an RGB model so i can change to any of 7 colors on the fly, its awesome... and i have a soundboard in there that you can modify all the sounds and settings via USB port.. these things are well made and pretty complex, and for hardcore nerds only, cuz these things arent cheap... when you add all the goodies like sound and RGB... I shoulda got the lighted switches, cuz i was already paying a nice amount, but oh well, i like these switches cuz they have guards on them... Its made of aircraft grade aluminum and with the new pommel adding weight to the back end, has a great weight and balance to it, which make spinning even smoother... i'll write more about it in my next post where i post a pic of it with the blade in it lit up.... I am such a dork...lol
Sunday, September 25, 2011
Havent posted a Jinx pic in awhile, so here ya go, cuz the interwebs have a shortage of cat pics...lol... here is Jinkers on a lovely box we picked up to store all our soda cans, cuz having like 5 boxes of 12 pack sodas was getting a little unsightly... so storing them all in one box seemed like a better idea and Anne liked this one when we were doing our yearly Halloween shopping night at Homegoods the other nite.. I'm sure you'll be seeing other purchases we made from that evening on here soon, cuz we got some really cool shit that night and the following night at AC Moore the craft store...
Friday, September 23, 2011
Here is one of my favorite deities up there with fat Elvis and Cthulhu and all his minions... but Baby Jeebus is up there, as he should be, all adorably omnipotent and shit... just look at him, just fills you with goodness just lookin at him... mmmm, filled with goodness, i sound like a fuckin twinkie now.... gots to go eat one after talkin like that, nom nom nom, mmmmm...lol... i have him mounted right under my 22 inch mac monitor, so under the monitor is His Holiness, and above the monitor is His Fishiness, Ryley... maybe i should have it the other way around, but oh well, i have both these guys basically glued to my shit with blue putty, so i think they're gonna be stayin put...lol... be back soon cuz i got lots more creamy goodness ready to fly on here...lol... ok, that sounded like Peter North, i'm all over the place tonight...lol... be back soon kids...
Here we have some of Anne's My Little Pony collection... They did a reboot of the show recently which Anne absolutely fell in love with, so in my ToysRus trips i've been getting her these things every trip... Some of these were in a nice little box set, and the ones in the back were individual ponies... I don't know the names yet but she does, so i should have her make a post and list all the names, cuz they're just so adorably cute they'll haunt your dreams...lol...
This is a nice close up of my new little buddy R'lyeh.. (Riley) is how we say it, easier off the tongue that way...lol.. named after an island in the dreamlands from the Cthulhu mythos for those nerds out there in the know...lol.. Got him this past week when we went to petsmart to get Jinkers her cat grass for the week.. we get her fresh grass every week cuz she's spoiled rotten and she loves that shit... So i got a whole setup for the fishy and some live plants and lights for the little tank, pretty sweet little setup that i have set up on a shelf right over my 22 inch monitor, i know, really smart to hang a tank of water right over my computer, but i'm careful with that shit...lol.. The fishy is a red crown-tail betta, never had a red one before, my last one was blue and a crown tail.. i knew it was time for a new fishy and tank when i walked past him at the store, something about him caught my attention and i was like, BAMMM!, time to get a new fishy...lol... will be posting more regularly in the upcoming days cuz i've been feeling better and i have my fresh supply of meds so i'll be healthy and good for the immediate future, and i have some cool pics i'll be posting too, so tah tah for now kiddies, be back soon...
Friday, September 9, 2011

Love this friggin cat, she is one of a kind fo sho...lol
Here is a color pic of the DVD shelves that is just a portion of Annes DVD collection of live metal shows and cheez metal...lol... Also in there is Bob, my homage to the Dresden series of books and shorts stories by Jim Butcher... anyone familiar with the books will know who Bob is, and this is my Bob...lol.. You cant tell from the pic but he lights up, i have a puck light under him and then i also coated the inside of him in glow paint so when the light is off he still glows... what can i say, i'm a weirdo, oh well... eccentric sounds nicer....lol... And like all of my pics on this blog, they're pretty high res, so click on them and they blow up really big so you can see all the details nice... in this case, you can the titles in her DVD collection... She has some really rare stuff too, some European acts and live shows that are just awesome... and you can see some of my retro Playstation and Dreamcast games that i actually still play...lol... So all this music and gaming goodness needs protection, 2 of my Halo soldiers, the red in my current configuration that i'm playing now in multiplayer, and the other in the steel colors... both have jetpacs which is my favorite and the only loadout i use in the game...So yeah, click on thepic and zoom in and see some of the cool shit we have on DVD and the old games... on the other side of the apartment she has the rest of her collection cuz its in alphabetical order, and i have some of my own rare DVDs stuck on some other shelves cuz we ran out of shelving real estate because i have too much shit and collectibles... but in my eyes, there is no such thing as "too much"... when it involves cool awesome shit anyways...lol... in that case i have WAY too much... much thankfully i have Anne and she adds to my collections of cool awesomeness...lol

Been on a kick with all my collections lately, and here is the prize piece of my planetarium collection, and yes i have a collection of planetariums, 5 or 6, then i have like 6 discs that go into these homestar planetariums, so that makes a pretty cool collection if you're a science geek like myself or Anne... Yup another thing her and I have in common, a love of science, astronomy, physics, all things in a broad spectrum of science...lol... so she tolerates the clutter in the apartment of things like this, the Homestar EXTRA... I forget the exact number of stars compared to the regular homestar, but considering its like over 15 times brighter than that model, which i also own, told ya it was a collection...lol... This model was made for Japanese clubs and schools... it works in low light situations, doesnt have to be total darkness like the original homestar which is 1 watt.. this one is 16 watts... also comes with a remote that lets you punch in any date and it will show you the night sky for that date and year... when i discovered this online, i pined over it a couple years and made due with the first homestar which still is a good unit, but when i finally got this one and it arrived at my doorstep, i could barely contain myself and had a nerdgasm the first night i set it up and got it running... i tried getting some pics but none of em came out that great or do it justice, you just gotta see it, its pretty friggin amazing, the first thing everyone says is.... WOW....lol... you dont even have to be a geek to be wowed by it... even our cat is mesmerized by it when we have it running...lol... its a Japanese import and the prices vary from expensive to out of your mind expensive, but like the first Homestar when i got it, i found a really good deal online, so i had to get it, and its still one of my best impulse buys ever... lol... this is so far the highest end mass market home planetarium available, so if you ever get the chance to buy one at a good price, or can even find one cuz they're kinda rare and overpriced as is, scoop it up, you won't be sorry.... i've used this thing alot and i'm still wowed by it the first time i fire it up after not using it for awhile...lol... come to think of it, i think i'll sit under it tonight for an hour or so, whenever i use it, i feel like a little kid at X-mas, i'm pretty goofy like that...lol
Got 2 of my collections represented here in this lovely little pic... A halo figure decked out in the current configuration of weapons and armor and colors that matches what i'm currently playing in Halo Reach... same colors and all... i know i'm corny as hell, but just another of the many distractions i have to make my weird boring life more interesting and tolerable.. Anne finds it adorable, she is the most amazing and wonderful and accepting person on the planet, just to be able to be around me 24/7, i can't give her enough credit...lol.. Love her so much...she is the best thing that ever and will ever happen to me... even winning the lottery can't even come close, and i tell her all the time that the odds of meeting someone like her are greater than any 100 million dollar lottery...lol... i'll take one of those tickets tho anyway baby Jeezus if you're listening...lol.. I'm grateful for Anne and all, but can't blame me for bein greedy, its the american way...lol... did a little artistic tinkering with the pic, hope you guys like it...
Another of my collections, and i'm discovering i have many...lol... lemme see, nerf guns, music, gargoyles, action figures, board games, planetariums, and a sample here from my skull collection... and its probly my favorite out of all of them... it just has a creepy spooky evil vibe to it... so i played around here adding mood to the pic in photoshop, hopefully i did it justice...lol... lost count of how many skulls i have, but i took a few pics today so you'll be seeing more of them in upcoming posts...lol... trying to update this blog more often to accompany my other blog that this blog is linked to... and i actually have regular visitors to both, which i find awesome and i'm grateful to all the nice people who find my ramblings and my stupid shit and hobbies and collections and art interesting...lol.. thanx again to all you wonderful bored people out there...lol.. boredom would be the only thing i can think of that would make me seem interesting and a reason to visit both blogs... sorry for the bad grammar, tired after a morning of flailing playing kinect fruit ninja, and boy are my arms tired... sounds like a punchline, but nope, that game kicks the shit outta my sorry outta shape ass... but its fun as hell... if you have a kinect and an xbox, you gotta get it... i gave it a great review on my other blog...lol

Here we have another of my prized star wars collectibles, a fully functioning scaled down R2 unit... does everything, rolls around, plays games, voice activated, tons of voice commands and hidden tricks he can do, one of the coolest toys in my collection... Not sure if these are still in production cuz i know sharper image was selling them right before they went belly up...lol... but i got mine a long time ago from toys r us... they were only available there for a short time, so i'm glad i scooped him up when i did... yesterday i was at Target and i saw a hasbro force FX light saber plastic version, but with the one piece LED scaling up and down blade like the expensive ones, does all the same sound effects, and it was like 30 bucks, so i had to grab it...lol... now that sits right next to the trusty little R2 unit on the floor next to my RC WALL-E... will post a pic of that some other time, i got too many cool damn toys...lol...
Apologize again for being away for so long, caught up in the usual bizzy shit and medical woes, and lots of gaming and music and my usual shizz...lol.. and for new visitors here be sure to go to the bottom and hit older posts, cuz i have pages and pages of cool old shit like art samples, more pics of my toy collections, cat pics, all kinds of stupid goodness...lol.. Todays pic is of one of my prized pieces of all my star wars shit, my 3 force FX lightsabers from Masterreplicas... these are the first and original ones the company put out many years ago, i'm bad with ages and times and shit, lol... Just that these were allegedly made with parts from lucasfilm that they used in the original movies... they didnt say what parts, just weird shit like screws and knobs and random pieces... and they're like a third bigger than the current ones you see now in stores, they're the mass produced ones that are a third smaller now and the new ones use 3 AA batteries... my little babies take 6AAs, so that with the size difference give them quite a heft in your hand as opposed to the new ones... these feel like what i'm sure a real saber woulda felt like...lol... and they're in mint condition like most of my shit, and the pics just don't do em justice... i love these things..lol.. comin soon i'll put up a pic of my R2 unit that is pretty friggin awesome, voice activated, all the sound effects and lights and he rolls around like the real thing...lol... so keep comin back, i'll try to be better at updating it and posting fun new shit... and i link this site to my XBOX360 after dark blog, so if you're here from there, thanx again for reading both these, i appreciate the readership for both... hopefully someday i'll be rich and famous and you can say you were there from the beginning...lol.. i mean i do have my little limited brushes with greatness for stuff i did a long time ago like creating all the graphic elements and wallpapers and everything for a little yogurt store in NYC called Eskimix, samples of that are here in older posts, I was the original artist that did a big T-shirt line years ago called Butt-naked that a made alot of people a lot of money except me of course, the story of my life..lol.. I did the logo for Symphony X that they still use today, love those guys, and alot more that i'm too lazy right now to remember and write about, but my art is out and about there floating around in all kinds of forms, graphic design elements i did, other T-shirts i did for penneys and Kohls, again i can go and on, but my shit is everywhere...lol.. so i'm famous in own little bloated self-hating ego, i suck..lol.. be back soon

Maybe my damn game isn't done yet cuz i can't stop making stupid logos for it?... hmmmm, ya think?...lol... I just love doin logos and this is one of my favorites i've done in a while, so i can't stop making new variations...lol... Here is the logo for a black manual cover or for black shirts, caps, mugs, whatever...lol... i'd love to make a shitload of merchandise for it on cafe press but maybe i should focus my energies on finishing the damn game... prioritizing was never one of my strong suits...lol... considering i've made so much more work for myself like having to draw up a ton of new cards for the crew, new board additions, new ship counter art and additions, planet rules and a shitload of D20 results for a shitload of new D20 die roll modifiers and shit... i did say i was getting ahead of myself..lol.. but i must say again, this game is gonna be epic... if i ever get the fuckin done... but i will have some a nice coffee mug and t-shirt for a game that doesnt exist...lol
Still workin on my friggin game, turned into an epic since its been so long in the making and i've added so many new elements like crew cards, a 20 sided die and planets and a ship diagram for mapping hits, etc., that i made a new logo with a new subtext...lol... i know i'm retarded and shit but i love doin shit like this, its more fun for me than the game will probly be...lol.. So if you're a company and this looks interesting to you and you wanna market my game, just leave a comment... This game is gonna be amazing once its all done and whatever, so you game companies start lining up now...lol

Just what the internet needs, more pictures of fuckin cats, enjoy... oh the cuteness...gggllnkkak... i think i just threw up in my mouth...
Here is a crappy blurry pic of my crappy pieces for my StarShip boardgame...lol... they came out ok i guess, the more i messed with em when i was sculpting em the worse and clumpy they were comin out, but i guess they're doable... they have these little black stands you can see on the yellow one that came out pretty cool....

When i was takin the Bumblebee pic, i had it on Jinx's favorite piece of furniture where she sits when i play video games and watches me, her black ottoman...lol... You can't see in this still pic but the funniest part is that her little paw is tapping at the toy so fast, but the Nikon caught it without even a blur..lol.. This is the most curious cat on the planet, and anything new to her needs to be pawed at, chewed and investigated...lol.. But i managed to get the pics before she got her mouth and teeth into it, and she is adorable and photogenic as ever...lol
