I’d bet that every nerd out there has one or two “Holy Grail” items that he or she covets but the high price tag keeps the good ol’ “Buy It Now” button from being pushed. For me, one of those items has been the inflatable Led Zeppelin blimp you see hanging in my nerd cave above.
OK, this one falls well into the category of “First World Problems.” Even so, I’ve got a minor dilemma I’ve been going back and forth on and thought I’d share it with you guys in a “thinking out loud” kinda way.

I know, I know…another Kickstarter post. I’d told myself I was gonna chill on the KS love for awhile and talk about some other stuff.

Greetings nerds of Earth! I’m back from vacation and gearing up for a fall season chock full of nerdy goodness. July was a bit busy with various stuff, so I thought I’d jump on here to drop some random thoughts on you…
