Looking at the deathtraps these kids are careening around on makes me wonder how any of them lived long enough to tell the tales of their adventures. Some of them are, literally, 2x4s with some old roller skate wheels tacked on. Crazy

It sold out pretty quickly. Kawsone.com was getting clobbered the whole time I was in there. At $315 there wasn’t any way I was going to be able to get one, but it was fun to monkey around with a big time drop.
I’m a big, dumb nerd for Kaws. Not so much his Spongebob stuff, but his Companions and his Chums hit me the right way.
Brad McGinty (of the Xenomorph Anatomy shirt fame) has a new shirt up for sale and it’s terrific. Based on a bootleg Chinese toy, it’s RobertCop 2.
