Review: Figma Link DX

I think I’m on a bit of a fantasy kick lately. The Mythic Legions figures didn’t quite satiate my fantasy craving. They’re awesome figures, but they’re also fairly large and heavy. I want a figure that is easy to grab and carry along, or easy to pop in a container and …

Building A Hulk

I’ve been on a big Incredible Hulk kick lately, which surprises me as I normally am not that much of a fan of the Hulkster.  However he seems to be tickling my muse, so I am running with it.  I recently watched Thor Ragnarok with my son, and I was …

The Coming of the Fairies

This is a true story about one of the most ingenious photographic mysteries of the 20th century; The Coming of the Fairies! It started in the wonderful village of Cottingley in West Yorkshire when two young cousins Elsie and Frances were playing with the camera at the bottom of the …

Free is never free

Social media isn’t free. There is an actual, real and concrete cost to social media. Not the typical metaphorical costs often mentioned like time away from family, unnecessary screen time, privacy costs etc. I’m talking about real dollars and cents (or your equivalent currency). Free is never free If you …
