change

You walk by a man and he asks you for some change.
You go to a fancy restaurant with your friends and hear them how they want to change.
You see people talk about it on tv, radio, the internet, even on the random street corner.

Everybody wants it!

So here I am, standing proud and tall on the porch of 2012, looking with hope and gleam at the horizon.
I'm not on a horse but I believe I have some change in my pocket. I'm not sure how much though...

What I do know is that each coin is shiny, new and bearing an evil looking grinning man on one side, and a question mark on the other.
"In you we trust." says the message imprinted on the side.

I guess it's up to me to figure out how much change I really have. More so, how much I really need.
Then again... the best things in life are said to be free, so I'll probably keep some change for a coffee.

Deep serious shit, I know.

tomb raided

I've always been a big fan of the games, and when I saw this figure I knew I had to have one.
Now I do, and this be the photo review of said figure, Tomb: Raider: Lara Croft, by NECA.

The packaging was fairly what you might expect, with everything neatly tied in place.


Out of the box, the contents are pretty diverse. Lara comes with quite a nifty array of weapons: her iconic twin pistols that can be holstered in her hip holders; a pump-action shotgun; a grenade launcher and a very funky sword of some sort.



The figure of miss Lara Croft is surprisingly detailed, from the articulated torso, neck and arms, down to the brown boots. The colors are great, and most important: the face is realistic. This usually is a major issue with action figures, as they tend not to look like the character they were made after.
This is not the case here, as Lara's action figure looks gorgeous.


Hit the road, Jack!
She's a blast. :)

Due to the high level of detail, close-ups of miss Croft were possible, and not only that, they also looks amazing. More so, one can improve upon the original images and create some surreal pieces of art.









And here's where she stands.

Now, one might ask: do Batman & Spider-Man guard Lara, or is it the other way around? Hmm...

the tinkerer

As a kid I've been fascinated by pocket knives. I had one I used to fiddle around with sticks and to carve my name in trees and such. I still have it. It's old and needed resharpening a few times, but it's still there, in a box somewhere.

Today I got that which I wanted for a long time, a Victorinox Swiss Army Knife, the Tinker model.
I feel like saying more about this whole obsession, but I'll just post some funky pictures instead. :P

snail

It rained today, slightly more than one might have expected for this time of the year.
And yes, that's a snail.
