my goggle collection

so i've never been one to collect things...well, that's not true. i have more crap than your grandma. but i've never sat down and said to myself that i'm going to buy completely superfluous things and call it a hobby...until now. last summer was the season of the pirate. this summer (and probably far beyond), i've decided to go with the mad scientist theme. and what does a mad scientist need? GOGGLES. and lots of them...why? because it's mad...and just plain awesome. so i figured i would debut the "collection here" and have a record of the humble beginnings!
1. Photobucket
and nothing is more humble than this pair...which started it all. these babies were originally purchased as super cool swim goggles...because they are...but have been floating into my costume wardrobe for years, being involved most notably with my oompa loompa costume, as well as my more recent website promotion photoshoot as a...what else? mad scientist!

2. Photobucket
i overcame my fear of purchasing wearable items on ebay to buy these...but alas was a tad disappointed to find out that the lenses were clear. i mean...sure...they are probably one the most practical goggles that this collection will see, but i was looking forward to sporting these as sunglasses on the beach in an all white bikini...let's take a moment to soak in just how awesome that would look...

3. Photobucket
if i may divert your attention to this amazing eyewear, do note the biohazard symbols on the lenses because they are hysterical. instant classics...and i'll finally fit in with those supercool cyber goth kids!

so i know its a little early to be picking FAVORITES, but holy crap, i love these things. in their short life, they have already seen a day at the office, a work bbq, a date, a midnight underwear cookie-making party, and a fleetwood mac concert and were a big hit in all scenarios. whether on my head or adorning my face, they just make everything a little better.

that's it for now, but off to a good start!

drag me to hell

THANK YOU sam raimi for making just a damn fine horror movie.

the movie won my heart for so many reasons...it just hits all the points it should. scary. shocking. creepy. gross. funny. absolutely ridiculous...and complete with a gratuitous wet t-shirt scene and one of my favorite endings of all time. ta-dah! i'm not one for writing reviews or giving away plot points...

i'd rather just simply say GO SEE THIS MOVIE AND IT WILL BE ONE OF THE VERY FEW WORTH $11.50!!!!

Also...i think staples in the forehead should be the newest fashion accessory. shit's hot...not sure if the one in the eye will catch on though...that's a little pretentious...so maybe only in williamsburg.

The Beginning

come one! come all! welcome to my ASYLUM!
let me just say that as i sit here spinning around in my wonderful leather chair, goggles on and marker in hand...i can't help but look at the blank screen, cross my eyes, cock my head and think how much i'm stumped for a good introduction...and also notice how im all of a sudden scared to start a sentence with a capital letter. I....AHHHHH....I.....AHHHHHahahaha

...perhaps i shall refrain from the shift and caps locks keys altogether then...

anyway...if i may be so bold as to proclaim a "mission statement" for this here blog...i happen to have it written on the bottom of my feet.

Mission Statement Feet

So i hope that clears up any confusion...and turns on my foot fetish fans...if you didn't catch the foot pun, shame on you.

Stay tunes, my minions. There will be more madness to follow...we don't take ourselves too seriously around here...
