Happy Halloween!

Today was GREAT! Saw some cool costumes and learned I wasn’t quite the biggest Doctor Who freak ever!

Doc Brown vs Doctor Who: Epic Rap Battles





and the loser is:

Doc Brown = EPIC FAIL!

An Assimilated Klingon Action Figure!?

NO WAY !!  WTF is next?? Ann Coulter being succinct and non-polemical??

Oops! Damn! I’m already breaking my own topic rules!!

Still, come on this is a KLINGON were talking about? You know them, right? They’re found between ‘kick-ass” and  ‘kreatophagia‘ in the dictionary.

Borgons?

This may be old news to some of you die hard Star Trek collectors, but in the 1990s when I was collecting Star Trek merchandise we had to walk 10 miles to school, er I mean, a Klingon was a Klingon and never a “Borgon” or whatever these abominations disguised as an action figure are referred to as! Shame on you Art Asylum!

When action figures come to life…

It’s no secret that I love my action figures and with all the photos of my collection I’m getting ready to post it will definitely be one (secret) out of the bag soon enough. Action figures were in fact the main reason I started this second blog.  I have a blog about politics, LGBTQ rights, where I basically subject anyone who will read it to my opinion on the world, et al. One thing for sure. this blog doesn’t care about Obama 1 little bit and it would be an odd occurrence to find a post here about him

abbama

unless he’s an action figure and preferably standing next to a cool Goth rocker babe! (see example 1)  Otherwise he’d be way off topic and no where to be found in this blog.

So (finally) here’s the question….

What happens when action figures come to life? This is a topic I hope to examine through out a few posts. I’m definitely leaning towards a possible conspiracy theory. I mean seriously. Here’s what got me started. We all know that Buffy Summers never was turned into a vampire, unless you count the episode “Nightmares” (season 1 episode 10) in which people’s nightmares were coming true, but at the end they figure out what’s happening and all the nightmares go back to normal.

Still look at this evidence!

And the VIOLA!!! Live and in person: (NOT Child SAFE! May cause trauma!)

It’s uncanny, innit? And VERY scary too!!!!!!! Oh well, at least it’s close to Halloween meaning that this horrid occurrence has happened just in time for that old shrivelled up face to step out of the box and scare some people. I know I’m scared

 right this very minute!! One thing is for certain I will definitely be sure to keep at least one eye out and report  any other strange “action figure to live human transformations” that may occur between now and the scariest night off the year! If you find any interesting examples be sure to share with me!

Telly ala mode?

Okay so I have a friend who loves the television show “House, MD.” Whenever she’s watching it and I’m around it always seems interesting and I always say, “One of these days I’m gonna watch that show!” A week ago the day finally came around. I was pretty excited by the prospect of being able to start watching a show with so many season ahead of  me to enjoy so I made some food, sat down and keyed up my favourite source for watching previous seasons of shows. I always heard you could learn a lot from an episode of House which is what  inspired me to write this very post today entitled:

Five TV shows not to watch while eating dinner

Number 1: House MD. – You never know when a camera   shot, right up the left snotty nostril will catch you and the  cheese nacho you just shoved in your mouth off guard.

Number 2: True Blood – Most of my friends know I love me some Sookie Stackhouse but spaghetti and meatballs while Sookie suddenly decides to blow the head off of Debbie Pelt at close range with her big o shotgun just doesn’t make for a good meal!

 Number 3: Walking Dead – As if Walker Texas Ranger meets the contents of my trash can after a 15 day city garbage strike would ever be appetizing with steak tartar and rice….

Number 4:  Bones – what could be so bad with a TV show that’s about reconstructing/identifying dead people from their bones. I mean bones are just bones, right? Hmmm well next time you hunker up in front of the TV with a medium supreme pizza, remember 1 important fact: sometimes where there is bones there can also be rotting flesh which oddly enough kinda resembles slices of medium supreme pizza…. 😡

And last but not least:

Number 5: Any television show with the possibility of subjecting its viewers to Glee’s Blaine Andrews with out his hair gel, beauty/fashion advice from Joan Rivers or Rush Limbaugh breathing. 😀

I’m just glad that my suffering may help and enlighten others that are like myself and still thought having dinner during medical dramas and apocalyptic zombie shows was OK dinner viewing.

Action Figure Collection

I started this blog so I could post up pics of my collection of action figures, play-sets. gadget like phasers, etcetera rather than to fill up my regular (right-brained) blog @ Once Upon a Lesbian. I’ve been working on re-doing my shelves and adding more shelves (not to mention dusting, omg!) so I can get some good pictures and moreover make the collection aesthetically pleasing to its lone audience member. Me!

Here’s some of the under construction photos:

Below are some old photos I took a few years back of my Doctor Who collection which was considerably smaller since Character Options was only @ wave 1.

As you can tell I was trying to be all artsy at the time. 🙂  For me collecting action figures isn’t a profit hobby. I open mine, display them, talk to themfondle them (not really!) and arrange them into amusing little poses. Since I don’t collect to sell them later all I can surmise is that I simply like looking at them.

Go figure, huh? ;-p
