About Me

No Fixed Abode, Home Counties, United Kingdom
I’m a 51-year-old Aspergic CAD-Monkey. Sardonic, cynical and with the political leanings of a social reformer, I’m also a toy and model figure collector, particularly interested in the history of plastics and plastic toys. Other interests are history, current affairs, modern art, and architecture, gardening and natural history. I love plain chocolate, fireworks and trees but I don’t hug them, I do hug kittens. I hate ignorance, when it can be avoided, so I hate the 'educational' establishment and pity the millions they’ve failed with teaching-to-test and rote 'learning' and I hate the short-sighted stupidity of the entire ruling/industrial elite, with their planet destroying fascism and added “buy-one-get-one-free”. I also have no time for fools and little time for the false crap we're all supposed to pretend we haven't noticed, or the games we're supposed to play. I will 'bite the hand that feeds' to remind it why it feeds.

T is for Totem Pole

I've placed 'Totem Pole' in the tag list, so if you go down there and click on it, you'll get this above the original post, so it'll be more in context. These are the ones I couldn't find when preparing the original article.

And from left to right they are; Unknown modern Hong Kong/China, from a bagged play-set with poor copies of the Airfix Cowboys and Indians; JIM from France; Starlux, also French and an unknown tourist trophy similar to the Greg Wolf one in the original post, even down to the black resin material but smaller.
