The cuteness…it is melting my brain!


Ok, I’m sure when Funko says they’re releasing Guardians of the Galaxy figures they’re going to release all the main characters. But, I really don’t see the point. Look at this cute little motherf&#%er! At this point I’m buying them in bulk and covering my entire apartment in dancing Groots. They are successfully filling the dark and cavernous hole I have in the very core of my being. These guys are MAGICAL.

But, for sake of argument, I suppose I should show you some of the others. Because apparently you’re so jaded you can’t be swayed by the platonic ideal of cuteness.

You’d be cuter if you weren’t so angry, Rocket.

On top of all the Guardians mandness Funko lkeeps putting out the good stuff with the Big Lebowski and Adventure Time sets.

That little Walter may have to find a place amongst the sea of dancing Groots. He seems like a pretty rad dude to have around in a crisis…unless it’s Shabbos.
Now, do as I have and fill your life with Groots!

Honestly, did any of you know Steve Jackson’s OGRE was re-released? It’s been a long time since I’ve thrown up jamscreens and battled the hulking tanks in 2085 A.D.

Here’s a tiny amount of history…

A while ago, back in 2012, Steve Jackson released the “designer’s edition” But the real story began back in 1977. It was the first game Steve Jackson ever developed, and I can only hope that he knew deep in his subconscious that the world needed to simulate large hulking tanks assaulting highly defended futuristic military bases.
And it’s three bucks, which is cheaper than very expensive gum.

This is how excited I am about large tanks. Also, if you do the Carlton dance during the game it really distracts you opponents.



JAPANESE CAT BEER

It is from Japan, it’s a wheat beer and it’s adorable. What else can I say? A lot actually, so I’ll try to keep it brief. It’s definitely at wheat beer, but it’s light, refreshing and has more than a touch of ginger. The refreshingness is the key point here, you can down can after adorable can and it stays crisp, never heavy. Which means you won’t feel slowed down as you play Talisman for hour after hour.
In addition, you can peel off little stickers with English words that reveal Japanese words. So, in theory you culd teach yourself Japanese! What other beer can say that? Also, it has a cat on it.
