I’ve blogged before about the occasional gems to be found at antique malls, thrift stores, and garage sales. In the spirit of Two True Freaks’ Garage Sale Gloat episodes, I thought I’d drop in and tell you guys about my latest score…maybe inspire you to embark on a little treasure hunt of your own.
Hey there my people. Back from a posting dry spell with something that’s got me really nerding out. Thought I’d share it with you guys…
Much to my wife’s annoyance, I just can’t keep off my Kickstarter app. Sitting in the doctor’s office (a frequent happening for me lately) or waiting for my daughter to wrap up her play rehearsal…I just can’t NOT look to see what’s new. One of the first things I usually do is search the keywords, “Cthulhu” and “Lovecraft.” A couple of days ago, I hit upon this project. And while there’s only about a week left in the campaign, I still have to drop a plug for the Lovecraft Inspired Sideshow Art Series by Midnight Circle LLC.
A few months ago, I told ya’ll about my new hobby (because can you really have too many?) of collecting playing card decks off Kickstarter. To date, I’ve backed thirteen playing card projects, ten of which have funded and I’ve even already received my first deck. Today, I’m back with a heads up on a really cool deck featuring everyone’s favorite elder gods.
“In his house behind the couch, Cthulhu waits dreaming.”
–H.P. Lovecraft (sorta)
I like inflatable stuff. Used to have a 5′ green inflatable alien in my old bedroom. I don’t exaggerate when I say “It really tied the room together.”
Recently, while searching “Cthulhu” on Amazon, I came across the Inflatable Cthulhu Arm. Went right into the ol’ Shopping Cart and arrived at my door three days later. Of course, as is often the case with me, I bought it before I’d thought about what I’d actually do with it. Luckilly, inspiration hit quickly and it now resides behind the Nerd Cave couch. My kids love it. My cats love it. My wife…well, she didn’t give me much on it, but I think she secretly digs it. I offered to buy one for our room but she hasn’t gotten back to me on that yet.
Now I just need to find a place to fit in a 5′ green inflatable alien…
