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.

News, Views...etc...Space Candles

Tom Clague has sent me this picture, which he took in a store 'down-under' somewhere...

As Tom pointed out they are Matchbox sculpts...as candles! I did Google Noup Design and couldn't find them but I did find ten-stud Lego bars as candles and cartoon bombs with fuses!

Tom makes music of a trancy ethereal nature, and gives it away! Details of the new album - which features Airfix astronauts on the cover and mentions Gerry Anderson - are here;

Mood Processor

and the free download is here;


In other news, I updated the Foreign Terms and Figures pages yesterday and should add some more to the Khaki Infantry page today.

$20 for five candles? I just hope that they are scented although I am not that sure I want to know what a GI smells like.

Now a GI Jane on the other hand...

What's that in earth money?!!!!

As to GI Jane...I had something similar as a dark-soul'd teenager; all black wax and wrapped round a snake if memory serves...not wearing much!

Album is very good, if you like that type of music, was playing it earlier.

I've had a listen too, better than the last one. Moody but gentler?


Maverick Collecting said...

Yes, more ethereal!
