I have no problem believing that dudes that look like this are out there in the vast expanse of space. I also have no problem believing that while they may have been interested at one time in coming to visit us, not even the sideshow carnival charm of Earth can entice them anymore. For the sake of money, or feeling like our shrimps are more prawn-like than popcorn, we continue to wreck our planet and everyone on it. It depresses me to feel like a helpless passenger in this flaming dumpster that has been pushed down hill, so I try to remember the good things we have that we can control. That's why art is so important, maybe now more so than ever, because to me it is the greatest example that our humanity is not completely lost. In spite of everything, or maybe because of it, we still create things to express ourselves and draw out expression from others. So while the news is mostly depressing (except for yesterday, in which a few bad people got what they deserved) go and look at a painting, or in this case a toy, and realize that there is still hope for us yet.
Now that I've waxed philosophical while sitting in my underwear, lets talk toys. This Garglmon from Blurble One and Dski One is releasing today at 3pm pacific time. Cast in luxurious Japanese sofubi infused with glitter, then enhanced with a nice minimal paint job, he can be yours for a mere $80 exclusively from Lulubell Toys. Each one is seven inches tall and features random eye colors to add a little bit of mystery into your life. Pick one up for yourself by visiting www.lulubelltoys.com.
