I came in to work on Tuesday morning and found this waiting for me: My dear friend Craig, knowing of my love for all things He-Man, found these Golden Books at his local thrift shop. That guy goes to the thrift store about three times per week and always comes back with some sort of […]
It’s that time of year again, where we show copious amounts of love to those who mean so much to us. Husbands, wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, dead, undead… you know the routine.

Here’s another entry in the oobject.com list of top 14 toy robot commercials. This one I’m sure many of you remember. Hell, I’d bet money that a good number of you owned this watch.

You should all know that I have a deep distrust for this red Muppet. As cute as he may be and as much as my daughter adores him, as far as I’m concerned this little thing is a demon in furry form, thrust upon us by the Children’s Television Network for Lord knows what purpose. […]
