I’m falling in love with this logo
I enjoyed my first experience with Loot Crate to a point. I liked the concept of getting a themed package of swag delivered to my house, and I loved the quick service. However, I was not a fan of the idea of getting a bunch of loot from something I don’t care about, as the last Loot Crate I did was based on Bravest Warriors, something I knew nothing about.
But when I saw that April’s theme was “dragons”, with the promise of swag based on the Game of Thrones HBO series as well as Elder Scrolls, it was impossible to pass up. I found another code online which gave me a chunk off the total and I re-subscribed so that I could get my dragon on. While I was a bit let down by the swag from the “Warriors” Crate, I was not disappointed in the least by the “Dragon” Crate.
I can feel the Elder fire burning within
A dream come true…
Back in January I was talking about the Simpson’s dream house that was going to be available from Lego. At $200 it’s quite steep, but at the time Lego had promised something in the way of smaller sets that would be more wallet friendly. The wait is over, and Lego has released pictures of the new minifigures.
Unfortunately, it’s not what I was hoping for. I was under the assumption they were going to make small sets, like maybe Otto’s bus or Bart’s classroom. Instead, the minifigures will consist of a set of sixteen individual characters, and will run about $4.00 a figure. Here’s the group photo:
Gotta catch ‘em all
Maggie Simpson shot Mr. Burns. Midi-chlorians make up the Force. What awaited Roland at the top of the Dark Tower. These are examples of plot twists that were just horrible. Well, you can now add Brock Lesnar breaking the Undertaker’s WrestleMania streak to that list.
I may not watch wrestling these days but I always keep my eyes open to get a general sense of what’s going on in the WWE Universe. I knew that Undertaker was slated to face Brock Lesnar, and while I wasn’t a fan of the match card, I expected Undertaker to walk out of the
Silverdome Superdome 22-0 at WrestleMania. Instead, I was shocked when I checked on the status of the match before going to bed last night and read that after three F-5′s Lesnar got the three-count and shattered the Dead Man’s streak.
It took three of these to lay the Undertaker to rest
Too bad they couldn’t find a better logo image
It’s no secret that I’m a supporter of Sasquatch, in that I know it’s out there somewhere. I’ve read books on the subject, watched plenty of documentaries and debated with people over the possibility of the existence of such a creature. I think it’s entirely plausible that such an animal could be running about in the woods; something with heightened senses that have allowed it to elude positive human confirmation all these years. I’m like Fox Mulder, and know that the truth is out there.
I Want To Believe…In Sasquatch
Trouble is, people who claim to be friends of Sasquatch do nothing but trudge his name in the dirt. There’s the guy who just last week claimed to have shot a Sasquatch and has been having the body tested by “professionals”…but this is the same guy who claimed to have a Sasquatch body several years ago, but turned out it was just a gorilla costume.
It’s either a dead Sasquatch or the guy’s old Geico Caveman Halloween costume
There’s also a heaping amount of horror movies and books that represent Sasquatch as a killer monster rather than a reclusive animal. Nowadays the big craze is “reality TV”, based on tracking down the gentle giant. The biggest perpetrators that slander Sasquatch’s good name are the folks behind Animal Planet’s TV show “Finding Bigfoot”, and they have found their way onto The Shit List.
These clowns are on Sasquatch’s personal shit list
The swankiest home on Evergreen Terrace…coming to your home soon
The Lego company has long been putting out awesome sets based on popular franchises. I had plenty of the Star Wars sets back in the day, and the recent sets based on The Hobbit have been tugging at my heart strings. However, there was one franchise that had been neglected from the block builders until now…The Simpsons. That’s right, the family that went to Blockoland can now come to your home in Lego form!
So far the flagship set has been revealed, and it’s a doozy. It is a 2500+ piece set that depicts nothing less than 742 Evergreen Terrace, complete with the entire Simpson’s nuclear family…and stupid Flanders as well. All six characters look pretty awesome.
Television…teacher, mother, secret lover…
