All I do is dream of Toys…Toys.. Toys!

A somewhat updated list of my dream toy wish list:

  1. Shogun Warriors: Godzilla. Yes he is the shorter one of the Shogun Warriors team and didn’t come with any interesting accessories. BUT he has some awesome fist shooting action and a “tongue of flames.”s-l1000hqdefault
  2. Jumbo Machinder: Raydeen. This super Robot a delta wing missile coming out of it’s stomach! 66d3812e80d2e781fd3aa3d0b5989424hqdefault (1)
  3. Micronauti: Emperor- GIG’s is the Italian  line of Micronauts toys. This toy has the same components as his Mego counterpart in terms of magnetic joints and shooting fists. However his face mold has a sinister grin and it is made out of rubber instead of plastic.  3aa09f5ff34307d63c5da61cb85be723e37bb317e387819217628e11bc31b872

It is about the 40 year history of the science fiction comic 2000AD4622009122

“Something about us”

“Something About Us” by Daft Punk
It might not be the right time

I might not be the right one

But there’s something about us I want to say

Cause there’s something between us anyway
I might not be the right one

It might not be the right time

But there’s something about us I’ve got to do

Some kind of secret I will share with you
I need you more than anything in my life

I want you more than anything in my life

I’ll miss you more than anyone in my life

I love you more than anyone in my life 

Addicted to Love

In 1986 producer Terrence Donovan directed one of the most iconic 80’s music video of Robert Palmer’s song:  “Addicted to Love”.

960

This song is on Robert Palmer’s Riptide album and was it’s second single. Every time I think of Robert Palmer two things pop up in my head: this song and this video.

Some interesting facts of this video and song:

-The models in the video are not actually playing the instruments in it. A musician was hired to teach them fingering routines to give the impression of playing the instruments.

  • The same models were recast in future Robert Palmer’s videos such as “Simply Irresistible”, “I didn’t mean to Turn You on”, and “Change His Way”.
  • Robert Palmer was going to make this song a duet with Chanka Khan but her record company would not allow her to sing in it due to her contract. RobertPalmer-AddictedToLovevob_tn-800x602
