So, based upon the contents of my humble blog, one might think that all I do is sit around painting Space Marines, watching Blu-Rays with my feet propped up on stacks of comics and board games while I jam mass quantities of crackers and Cheez-Whiz into my piehole as I surf Kickstarter for new projects to back. And while that does accurately describe many of my weekends, I do have to work for a living to help support my family and my nerdtastic lifestyle. So that means driving home. And THAT means road rage.
I know what you were thinking. “Dude…this guy must get a paycheck from Kickstarter. No, not THAT. You were thinking, “I wish I could find a cool Christmas gift on Kickstarter but those things take sooooo long to get delivered.” Well, fear not Merry Nerds of Earth. An outfit out of Los Angeles (my homeboys!) named Trusted Cape is offering a sweet little hardcover (and an eBook version) set to ship just in time for the most wonderful time of the year. Ladies and gents, check out Moving Christmas: A Holiday Adventure.
Your man here is a HUGE Sherlock Holmes fan. Back in 1989, my then-girlfriend got me The Complete Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle for a birthday present and I was hooked. Of course, when I say, “got,” I later learned that she most likely shoplifted it. Turns out, when your girlfriend asks you to pick her up from her community service, it may not be for a speeding ticket even if that’s what she claims. Yeah, that shoulda probably been a red flag. But I digress.
As a long-time fan of the world’s most famous detective, I was pretty excited to get an e-mail last week from Jackson Robinson announcing his new Kickstarter project–a Holmes-inspired playing card deck.
