100x100.jpg I’m sure some of you have seen this, but it is still cool. The amazing "Secret Menu" at In ‘n Out. Good stuff. Here in Colorado we don’t have In ‘N Out. It makes me sad. I love that place. I would eat this. Go check it out: http://supersizedmeals.com/food/article.php/20060125050438458

Star_Trek.jpg If you read TOAWBAH when it was a column, you may remember there were two lines that drew me to collecting: Batman: The Animated Series and, before even that, Playmates Star Trek. I remember exactly how I felt as I drove away from Toys R Us with that first figure, Captain Scott. He was right…

black_friday.jpg Let’s set the "way back machine" to 5 years ago when I would wake up at 0’dark thirty, drive out to Pasadena, pick up my buddy CubanZod and drive up the highway hitting every Wal-mart, K-mart, Target and KB Toys that we could find (mostly outside the LA city limits), looking for all manor of…

dst_trek_picard.jpg Diamond Select Toys has breathed new life into an old love of mine. Star Trek has been a part of my life since I can remember. My family watched the series on it’s original NBC run when I was a toddler (the original series debuted in 1966…I debuted in 1965). I don’t remember those as…

I’m sure we’ve all gotten the odd sidelong glance from parents or employees while trolling the pegs for the latest treasure, but here’s something I hadn’t encountered until yesterday. I’m in the Wal-Mart figure aisle, flipping through the DC Superheroes.  Behind me, a guy is trying to align a large, unwieldy box under the price…

Delusional and Hubristic 80s Kids I know I’m probably overloading on YouTube, but I think it’s the greatest thing since the original Netscape browser.  Here are two gems that cannot be ignored if you haven’t already seen them: the below subpar rapping of the Average Homeboy and the incredible overacting of Brian Atene.

SuperPowerLogo.gif   As some of you know, I am a certified James Robinson Starman nutjob.  Loved the character of Jack Knight, loved the series and Tony Harris’ artwork and loved pretty much anything else associated with the property. Still do. I re-read all the trades on a fairly continual basis – just great, great stuff. So with apologies to Robinson…

Strider.jpg *Almost. In our first visit of the blog era, I listed ten things I believe you can do to escape or avoid toy addiction.  Subsequently, I thought of an eleventh item for that list, but there’s a problem. The eleventh thing you can do to beat toy addiction would have been… There are two kinds…

Go Vote! That’s it. Polls close at 7pm (I think). Go vote. Doesn’t matter for who. Or go vote against. Just do it. Want to show that Iraq was bad? Go vote. Want to demonstrate our freedom to other countries? Go vote. Please! It does matter (except in Florida)! VOTE!!!! Old School Election Cartoon:  [youtube]Ckr1tZitZtU[/youtube] New School…
