Death Goldblum the Gore Fly Kickstarter from Evil Dave




    When you've tired yourself out watching pimple popping videos and cyst removal the next logical progression is watching a bot fly get yanked from someone's festering skin.  It really has everything you could ever want:   There's the horror that the person is raising an insect baby in their flesh and they are really not exited about being a parent.  And there's a second person who is going to do the removal and whose excitement level is directly proportionate to their lack of medical training.  And let us not forget the botfly larva itself, whose tiny little black spines are hell bent on staying knuckle deep in their seemingly endless food source.  Armed with little more than a pair of tweezers and a cell phone camera the magic is beyond anything Kubrick could have dreamed up. 


When a man is known as Evil Dave, you can bet he's not dreaming up unicorns and rainbows.  Enter Death Goldblum the Gore Fly, whose appearance is absolutely as advertised.  He's buzzing around on Kickstarter now in the hopes of becoming a vinyl toy, but he needs your help to make that dream a reality.  Check out the link here, snag some rewards, and bring this turd eating insect to life.

Gold "Choices" Vinyl Figure from Jermaine Rogers




      A rabbit with a thousand yard stare and a kitchen knife is the perfect spirit animal for my week.  Sharon and I started binge watching Mindhunter and we finished season one and have dipped our toes into number two. And you can't watch that many fictional representations of actual serial killers without giving everyone you encounter a second look.  Whether it's been the grocery store or at work I've been staring at each person I encounter looking for signs of deviant behavior.  Thus far I have only diagnosed a creepy kid in Wal Mart who was following a group of girls and staring at them from afar in every aisle they went down. It turns out that it was one of their brothers, so I'm glad I excercised restraint and did not use deadly force to apprehend the suspect.  The next life I save may be your own, or something.

    This bunny may not have done bad yet, or he may be contemplating continuing an otherwise unheralded reign of terror, but either way he is a compelling character from the mind of Jermaine Rogers.  He's eight inches of pure vinyl and limited to 100 pieces in this gold colorway.  You can add a dose of potential mayhem to your collection when he goes on sale this Friday October 11th at 3pm eastern from www.jermainerogers.com.

A Smattering of New Releases from Violence Toy



   When a company has a name like Violence Toy its fairly indicative of what their products will entail.  I myself am a fan of getting right to the damn point, which is something rare when you work with the public.  The quickest point between your problem and my solution is a straight line, but for some people they have this overwhelming internal monologue that demands to come out.  It happens so often I don't even have concrete examples, as my brain goes into safe mode and refuses to reboot until you have finished the story about the crazy traffic you encountered earlier or the fact that your daughter just got out of rehab and doesn't she realize that she's gonna have to get a job so she can pay you back for having to take her pet snake to the vet? I wish I was clever enough to make up half the crap people willingly tell me.


 So it seems I didn't get right to the point in this post, thus making me appear a bit hypocritical.  I shouldn't hold you up any longer than it takes to drool over all of these new releases because unless you are on the Violence Toy mailing list, then you have no idea what time these will be available.  I can tell you that it will be sometime today, which is Friday October 5th.  And I can tell you that they will be available at https://violencetoy.com

Silver DeathCat from Deathcat Toys x Toy Art Gallery




    Do you remember the movie Clash of the Titans?  I'm talking of course about the original, not the crappy remake one from a few years back.  It's one of my all time favorites and other than the three original Star Wars films, the only one I'd watch repeatedly without getting tired of it.  Recently I was discussing cats with someone and they asked how I ended up with five of them and the best way I could think to describe is was the way the Gods presented Perseus with the various weapons in the film to complete his task.  Everything was placed strategically so he couldn't help but find what was intended for him and I feel the same way about the little critters that wake me up at 6:30 every morning demanding to be fed.  They were intended to enter our lives at that exact moment and all we had to do was scoop them up and take them in the house.  Ok, so we managed to do that with one of them, the others didn't make it that easy, but you get my point.  Especially the one who wedged himself behind the car engine and required four hours and a tow truck to lift the front of the car to get him out.  It would have been easier to fight the Kraken.

     Deathcat Toys and Toy Art Gallery are set to release another of the former's mascot figures in silver sparkly sofubi.  He stands at four and a half inches tall, looks meaner than a snake, and will be available starting today at 3pm eastern time for $45 each.  That's way less than we spend on any of the three prescription foods that we feed our little buddies, who decided its way more fun to have individual dietary needs than to come together and share the same one.
