I must confess it has been a considerable amount of time since I have caught up with the league. Unfortunately, I have been absent from the game for period and am squeezing my way into the fray once again.
This edition from the League of Extraordinary Bloggers, is about showing who you are by showing off some of your shelves.
We will be exploring pretty much any flat surface that can hold something at my apartment. Hopefully, some connections will be made or you will think I am an insane person who desperately needs to be committed. Either way, here we go.
Starting y’all off easy with action figures.
If you can’t tell I like Raph.
I will zoom in a bit for all the sections.
Got you some turtles from the new series. I haven’t really seen the new show( I do like the fact that Baxter is black and not a fly), but the figures are pretty bad ass. Got the four mean green teens, as well as a few compatriots: Metal Head( My favorite in the original run). Leather-head, splinter, and of course Baxter Stockman.
Blade, for anyone that doesn’t know is from a series called Puppet Master.
He is badass.
He is also covered in blood.
Moral of the story is:
Don’t mess with Blade!!!!
Do you need more explanation?
The Maxx was an existential comic about a social worker who helps a lot of mentally damaged people. One of which is Maxx a purple suited, huge toothed, homeless guy that has spikes on the end of his hands. The ISZ are beings that exist in the subconscious called the outback. The TV show was a lot different the comic and if you really need more info, check somewhere else this ain’t Wikipedia.
Duke Nukem was/is the main character of a computer game with the same name.
He is also badass.
Little close up on Buddha and his pal.
Rat Fink!!! On top of a game of liars dice.
He holds coins.
Oh, what else is that he is holding?
A ticket stub from seeing The Raid 2.
Speaking of The Raid 2, if you haven’t seen it you are wasting your life. It is single-handedly the most brutal Martial Arts movie ever. Ever!
Hey is that K-9 Tom Baker’s sidekick from the original run of Dr. Who?
Damn Skippy it is.
With a very dynamic pose from Robocop. Battle damaged.
Dead or alive, you are coming with me……………..to the living room, where more treasures and shelves lie.
On to the movie shelves.
There is one turned around backwards. I can’t for the life of me be sure of what it is.
Maybe the man with no name trilogy. Maybe Tim and Eric Awesome Show. Who knows.
You’ve got your Texas Chainsaw, your Kurosawa, your Fulci’s Zombie-featuring the most epic scene of eye gore since Salvador Dali in 1929.
Of course Mad Max. and some Ralph Bakshi, Holy grail, Dark City which you can barely see to the right.
The real stars however, are the American Pop and Fire and Ice. American Pop is Ralph Bakshi’s awesome look at music from vaudeville all the way to punk and others. Fire and Ice is also Bakshi, but it features artwork and design from none other than the art world bad ass Frank Frazetta.
One of my favorite movies of all time is here. The Fifth Element. The best Punisher movie as well.
If you haven’t seen The Professional, it is important that you see it. Seriously.
Crossroads——not Britney Spears jack ass. Just look it up. It’s the karate kid, playing the hell out of a guitar.
This movie is perfect.
Not to mention the kid in the beginning reminds me of me a whole hell of a lot.
Except the voice.
Annnnnd more books:
Some MAD, some Shoe, lots of Calvin & Hobbes, The Far Side, Red Meat by Max Cannon, Frumpy the Clown, Hellraiser, Chas Addams, and CEREBUS (a barbarian aardvark, that becomes Pope, president, and so many other things).
One of my oldest books, The Star Wars Technical Journal, which was sold along with the magazines, back in the day.
Whelp, I guess that’s it from my current shelves.
