Otter Wizardry And I’m back from hiatus! For my first post, I can’t think of anything better than this amazing video of an Asian small-clawed otter demonstrating his dexterity with a small white rock. It looks fake, but it’s not! [youtube]gmLQkBcemyE[/youtube]

boxback.jpg OK, I can’t talk about this yet, but since TvShowsOnDVD.com listed it I can point out to you that Super Friends: The Legendary Super Powers Show has been scheduled to be released on August 7, 2007. And now that the box art has been seen, might I suggest taking a close look at the special…

  "Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat."  -Theodore Roosevelt

Tell me about the rabbits, George. I must apologize to my more sensitive readers, but there is just no other way to descibe this that I feel will do it justice. This is some crazy, crazy shit. [youtube]A4Yf-7Z_6PE[/youtube] I surely didn’t see that coming. I didn’t see any of it coming. I’m not sure exactly what I did just see.  Can…

I Am Death Wrapped In Butter The title has nothing to do with nothing, son. But I had to grab your attention to get something in front of your peepers, Jasper: I Love To Singa. Man, I just love the Hell out of this cartoon. I think it is my favorite of all time. Did you know the song is based…

  I just realized that it has been as long since now and the time the Star Wars: Power of the Force line was relaunched in 1996 as it had been between then and the end of the first line in 1985! Damn!

boystoyspage.jpg So I got this book not too long ago as a gift: Boy’s Toys by Jed Novick. It’s a kind of odd book, wanting to be a primer of the popular toys of the 60s & 70s, with a bit of the 80s thrown in. What it comes off as, though, is one person’s memories…

Legacy_Cover4_sm.jpg In addition to books and toys, I buy a lot of DVDs. Mainly old movies, because I’ve already discovered that they don’t always stay in print for long, and then command crazy insane prices on eBay once they’re out of print. Plus, the past few years have been great as far as the rarer films…

mickey1.jpg If there is one thing I enjoy collecting more than toys, it has to be books. I like books in all shapes and sizes, but mostly concentrate on biographies, books on history, art, and films. But one genre is the most near and dear to my heart: compilations of classic comic strips.  I think my…

Ok, I know the blogging has been inconsistent at best, but hopefully now that I have some massive projects coming to an end I can post the bits of "Otter Wisdom" a bit more frequently. First, though, I need to give massive props to our friend "Vader" who has been a tremendous help in keeping…

Happy Holidays! I have a more apropos post for the christmas season coming soon, but have been too busy to write it. Instead, why not marvel at the spectacle of nature that is…Baboon vs Hyrax?!? [youtube]KamOLSt9g8M[/youtube]

xevbk2.jpg Like the previous entry on the BK Lord of the Rings figures, these were pitched to Burger King in 2001 as a tie-in to the then airing X-Men Evolution cartoon. The earlier idea of figure packs was such a hit internally, when the X-Men license rolled around it was thought that the perfect "never been…
