Marvel Titan Heroes Iron Man Custom Repaint

Just uploaded my newest toy video. Check it out if you're interested. I give the history of my first custom repaint of a toy. I was pretty scared to try it, so I made sure to do it on a figure that was totally worthless, a Titan Heroes figure. Didn't matter if I screwed it up, and it was okay to make mistakes while learning, but all in all I think it turned out pretty good, and gave me some confidence to risk it on some better things.

The Apocalypse Wave Storm



Just posted another video to my new toy review YouTube Channel. Check it out, and hope you enjoy hearing my toy stories.

Now I gotta get to recording the second half of my story Fireflies so we can put it up on the Dunesteef.

The Minefield Remains

I thought with the end of the Christmas season that things at work would be easier. But no, came in yesterday, and there was this on the counter:


Christmas season is over, Girl Scout cookie season has begun.

Today, there's supposed to be a big luncheon at work too. There's going to be Italian food there that I could eat...except that there isn't a thing that I can think of that fits the bill of Italian food that doesn't include tons of carbs. So, I think I'm going to skip the luncheon. I'd have to go to work early to attend, and who wants to do that, right?

Spider-verse on TGMG

Rish and I talked Spider-verse over on That Gets My Goat. If you haven't checked it out, this is my official invitation for you to do so:


Rish Outfield, world's biggest Spider-man fan (or maybe it's world's biggest Bossk fan, maybe you should just ignore that statement), and Big Anklevich, world's biggest waist, got together (virtually) to talk about the new Spider-man animated feature film called SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE. 
Did they like the film?  Did they like the animation style?  Did Big Anklevich continually use annoying phrases like, "second verse, same as the first," over and over again? Find out by...you know, listening to the show.

Check it out at this link.

The Christmas Minefield, Part Four

I thought I was done, but then everybody decided we needed New Year's Day treats as well. There was this cake:


The most tempting to me were these nut clusters:


There were these nutcracker cans full of candy:


And two kinds of fudge, plus more candy:


I think I'm finally done with the minefield. We're through the happy Chistmassy time of winter, and into the miserable slog of January. Nobody brings treats in January. I assume everybody is now joining me in attempting to be healthy. Surely, they'll mostly be doing it wrong though. I've seen a bunch of commercials for Nutri-system and Planet Fitness. So, a few weeks from now, there will be a bunch more people who gave up and quit because of their lack of success, inability to control themselves on a low calorie diet, and so on. Hell, my own wife has sworn to be good, and started counting her damn calories. She thinks I'm crazy for fasting, and won't even try it.

The good thing is that Keto and intermittent fasting is catching on more and more. Seems like every book at Costco is about Keto. So, not everyone will be wasting their time in pain at the gym raising their cortisol levels with stressful exercise. I'm still in the vast minority, but someday eventually it'll catch on enough that the tide will turn, and diabetes, PCOS, alzheimers, and other related diseases that stem from inflammation caused by carbohydrate excess will fade back to normal levels, instead of enormous, crush and destroy your entire society levels. One can only hope.

Oh, if you're reading this, and you have no idea what I'm talking about, but you're trying to fulfill a new year's resolution to improve your health, please look into the Ketogenic diet and intermittent fasting. There's tons of videos on YouTube on the subject. I think I may join in that crowd and make some of my own journey. Check it out, you'll be glad you did. Here's a good first video to start with:

Chirstmas Toy Decorations

This video is a little late, but I just couldn't quite get it done in time. I misjudged the amount of time that videos take versus audio. Anyway, on New Years Day, I bring you the last of my second and final holiday video. This is about my decorations that I created for my study this year. I had a lot of fun putting them together.
