iBoy Designer Toy Kickstarter from Classicbot

   I've spent this first week of isolation doing a lot of art projects and writing a lot for a bigger story I've been working on.  Basically I'm just trying to put a silver lining on all of this craziness that has become our normal for the foreseeable future.  My wife and I have also done a fair amount of house cleaning, which has been interesting to say the least.  For one, I will never understand how we have a full sized trash can worth of socks but I am never able to find them when I want them.  One load of laundry was nearly all socks but I can almost guarantee you by June I will be in the store buying another pack because they have disappeared.  The second thing that is weird is determining what we own that could be worth selling in a pinch.  I have a ton of local crew shirts from various bands whose shows I've worked over the years that I will never wear but refuse to just give away.  They're like the ultimate limited edition merch item and I keep telling myself I'll put them on eBay but instead they're in a box that I will discover some time later and be surprised about.  You want a Kid Rock shirt with Sanford and Son on it?  I got one and I'm not proud of it.

    Sadly as we dug through the layers of our hoard I did not find any original iPods in their unopened packaging, because those things are worth a small fortune now.  Classicbot can't make up for the fact that I didn't see those things becoming more valuable than gold, but he can sell me one of his iBoy figures to ease the pain.

    If Stephen King taught a young me anything, it was to be weary of any inanimate object at all times because they are one short story away from trying to kill you.  This dude looks like a pretty chill guy; just barely enough to calm some of my irrational fears. There are 20 days left on the Kickstarter for this anthropamorphic blast from the not so distant past, but the good news is he is already funded so your figure is guaranteed.  Check out the campaign at this link
