Ahhh so many cool things in the nerd world today!
First of all – for the first time ever, you can own a piece of Calvin and Hobbes. For realises. None of this Calvin pissing on whatever you want him to crap. The cover of a Calvin and Hobbes calendar from 1990 is going up for auction this week. The starting bid is $5 000 and is expected to fetch more than $50 000. I would definitely LOVE to have this in my house. Maybe not $50 000 want, but still want a lot alot. I guess making it my new background will have to do.
The link to buy is down at the bottom, and need I remind you that some one has a birthday coming up….
Secondly in Nerdom – pictures of the Lego Lord of the Rings characters have been released! I’m not a huge fan of LOTR, but these are still pretty dang cool. More here (http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/lord-of-the-rings-lego-line-286032)
Artist Tim Doyle is making super cool pen/ink drawing of popular TV locations. Such as the Kwik-E-Mart, as made famous by the Simpsons. Lovely art.
I don’t play Pokémon anymore – but I can definitely relate to this. I’m definitely going to have a bit of nerd in me always from the good ol’ days of Pokémon.
I did have a Silver emulator on my laptop for a while…maybe I’ll start playing that again….
Who did you start out with?
