Today, the Cool & Collected information gathering mission continues. Welcome to the focus group -- you will be asked several questions, and refreshments will be served. Collect your money on the way out. I'm convinced that only nine people visit my site, due to the consistent commenting by those same few individuals (you guys are awesome!), but the stats prove … [Read more...] about Whaddayawant???
This one is for all my fellow pop culture bloggers out there (assuming there are still pop culture bloggers out there!). I've been doing a lot of ponderous pondering lately about the state of the internet, and am frankly a little uncomfortable with the way of things. Here's my problem -- Facebook and Instagram are running (or is that ruining) the show. What's the problem? … [Read more...] about Not dead yet!

These characters strive and survive in movie classics such as Starship Troopers, Stargate, Avatar, Battlestar Galactica, and more.

I picked this neat little toy camera up on eBay not too long ago. I like to think this is the camera that Peter Parker used to capture all those awesome photos of the web slinger, but there was no COA to back up that claim. This is the type of item that I love to add to my collection. You can take your action figures -- for me, the collecting gold is in products like this … [Read more...] about 1978 Spider-Man Toy Camera
