Yeah I think it would be cooler as bookends really.
I had the same thought.  But then, I'm a sucker for cool bookends.

I haven't forgiven myself for passing on these...



I bought that one for Laurie, back when I had the ol' employee discount at f.y.e. (and back when there were f.y.e.s).

I thought they already had jerseys in Buffalo.







p.s. I had to look up stats to determine which team to slot into that joke. I am such a fucking fraud.  :)

A girl (~13 years old) was wearing one of the Vader jerseys as part of her Halloween costume trick-or-treating at my house tonight. :)

Ok so, just a concept but:


If this was made, and I had a house with all wood floors necessitating a rug, I'd absolutely consider buying this. :)

Then the table starts to move across the rug as you sit on the couch, then you spontaneously combust :o

My wife found a groupon deal with a large selection of canvas prints of vintage movie posters.  There were a lot to sort through, and several of them had a Rifftrax connection (including an awesome looking Dr. Who and the Daleks poster I couldn't talk her into).  In the end, this is what we picked out.

I guess this is as good a place as any to post some model pictures.

For some reason Christmas put me in the mood to build a model, since the only original NCC-1701 model they had was a snap together one I got a Wright Flyer kit.  With the crappy weather Sunday and work closed due to a power outage yesterday I got it done.  Figure it took about 8 to 9 hours, half of that getting the string to cooperate.  Now I see the string is frayed and doesn't look that good in close macro shots. :(

I never really looked at the Wright Flyer closely before, the radiator is a metal tube strapped to one of the wing struts, and the gas tank is a little bottle also strapped to the top of one of the wing struts.  Guess they never needed the engine to run very long so no need for anything more heavy.

Pictures spoilered for size and number:

Haven't used a 2 remote flash setup in a long time, was fun to experiment with the lighting... ;D
