Snowcolypse 2012


It's was going to blizzard like crazy on xmas, but now...now the weather models say NOPE.
That makes me sad.  
I love snow.  I mean, I LOVE IT!  I love to play in it.  I love to shovel it.  I love to build things out of it.  Things like snow forts, snow walls, snow people, snow Daleks, snow Hutts and I get better at it everytime I get a chance to play in it.

I even enjoy getting the action figure out and playing with them.  IN THE SNOW!


Snow makes those Star Wars Hoth related toys even more awesome!


So everyone think, "Snow for Jen" and maybe, just maybe it'll work and I will get some snow.

If you want to see more snow action figure pics, check out my Flickr.

Wow. New Superman Trailer. Wow.




This looks pretty epic.  I'm a huge fan of Zack Snyder though.  Happy to see Amy Adams in there.  

Art Toys



Sometimes toys are art and art is toys.  To understand what I mean, look at the pic above.  It looks like a toy, right?  It is, but it's more than that.  Several artists including Josh (Shag) Agle and Joe Somers (of Squibbles Ink) collaborated to bring this piece to life.  They made 100 pieces called Gallery Prototype Editions and they were available to those who showed up at the art opening for $90 each. There will be another edition available to the general public in 2013.  You might scoff, but this is no more or less art than Rodin's Thinker or DaVinci's Mona Lisa.  Gen X'ers love toys.  We refuse to give up those things that brought our imagination to life.  Art like this is a way for many Gen X'ers  and others to collect art that really speaks to them.  They buy it because they like it, not necessarily because it is any sort of investment.  I love this trend in art.  I hope it isn't just a trend and that it becomes a permanent part of art.  For more interesting art pieces go check out Rotofugi.

I apparently missed someone who also was involved in this piece!  Apologies to Scott. Scott Wetterschneider (Shinbone Creative) was right in there on this with Josh and Joe.

Hellboy in HELL!



If you haven't been keeping up with Hellboy, you've missed something important.  I won't tell you what, but let's just say it has led to the fact that Hellboy has now gone to Hell.  Yep, he's in Hell.  The first issue of Hellboy in Hell came out this week.  If you're lucky, your comics shop will still have some.  If they don't, but you can't wait to read it, you have a second option: Online comic.  There's a sweet trial look if you aren't sure about reading a comic online.  Darkhorse has done an amazing job with the Hellboy comics online.  The online price is the same as the tangible paper copy: $2.99.  It works on the Android OS as well as Apple's OS, so you have no worries there.  The only problem you might encounter is if you want to read it on Kindle.  At this time, there's no Kindle support.  Sorry kids.  However, laptops and desktops are also a way you can read it.  So really, the Kindle is the ONLY thing it won't play on, pretty much.  Go, get you a copy now!  Look how far behind you are on reading one of the most amazing comics ever!  Go!  Hellboy in Hell!
