The other day I was driving down to Southcenter and happened to pass by the Hat & Boots gas station. The place is in a terrible state of decay. Won’t some dotcom millionaire with a taste for kitsch buy and restore the place?
Tasteless, rude, and offensive (so of course I’m linking it here): Rejected Easter Candies.
Ok, maybe the guy does have too much time on his hands. But Quinn’s Schmoo is way cool. I miss Fisher-Price Little People. The things they call “Little People” nowdays are phonies that don’t deserve the name “Little People.”
Rob has been mentioning Bendos in his journal a lot lately, so I finally checked them out. It seems to be an attempt to start a Beanie Baby-like craze, complete with retiring a few Bendos every couple of months. But, dammit, they are really cool. How can you not like a character named Sir Wincealot? And Shark Man is neat, though as a supervillain he falls a little flat. If there is a League of Substitute Villains, he’d fit right in.
