May 25th is Towel Day

May 24, 2009

Tomorrow, May 25th, is Towel Day. On this day you are asked to proudly carry your towel with you to celebrate the life and works of Douglas Adams. Why a towel you ask? Only because it is the most “massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have” and surely you wish to be thought of […]

New Horo figure by Volks

May 23, 2009

Yesterday Quazacolt informed me there was a new Horo figure out but quickly left without giving more information. So I set out in search of whatever Horo figure he was talking about. Much time passed and I’d still not found it. I started thinking perhaps he meant that the second season of Spice and Wolf […]

Lucky Star Ita-oil

May 17, 2009

Here’s something that will never go in my car, except in maybe the passenger seat or window. But certainly not for what appears to be it’s intended use, lubricating my engine. Apparently it comes in Mint and Peach fragrance (is that before or after use?), which seems very odd, I never smell my oil. It’s […]

Exhaust Gaskets

May 17, 2009

I kept choosing to do this because she’s probably my favourite figure so far and wasn’t quite sure how to present that. Not only is she Horo, one of my favourite characters, but she’s done rather well in this figure. She’s also the smallest Horo I own so far coming in at 1/8th scale.

Review: Spice and Wolf II – 00 (OVA)

May 5, 2009

Finally! More Horo! And I’m already late for the show. The Spice and Wolf II OVA was released 6 days ago and I only just had a chance to watch it today. Some how I’d forgotten about it thanks to my work schedule, at least that’s the story I’m sticking with. I was really happy […]

A set of proper tools

May 1, 2009

Up until now I’d been using cheap tools or old tools, just whatever was available to try and get the task done. This worked for the most part but sometimes there were just some things that were harder than they should have been. So yesterday I got fed up and decided to buy some proper […]
