80s Spotlight -David the Gnome

Here's a quick jolt of nostalgia on this Uneventful Thursday in September....."David the Gnome"! As a kid I remembered absolutely loving the theme song. It had a sort of "magical" feel to it and got me super excited for the cartoon to follow. The memories this show jogs would be sick days home from school and catching a few of these episodes in a row. Would love a day like that right about now ;)

"Look around you.
There are many things to see, that some would say could never be.
These things I know.
It's true and I will tell you so.
They are there to see, if you believe.
Trolls and wizards and fairy kings, birds that talk and fish that sing.
And if your heart is true, then you will find them too.
In every wish and dream and happy home, you will find a kingdom of the Gnomes."

League of Extraordinary Bloggers - STOP IT!!!

So this week the League is venting our pet peeves. For me it was between Facebook Spoilers and those ridiculous singing intros before prime time football games. You know the ones with scantily clad women (performing some stupid rendition of a main stream song, edited for football) who have probably never watched a football game in their lives? Well Facebook spoilers won!

With "Breaking Bad" coming to an epic close the spoilers have been redonkulous! Not everyone can tune in exactly when the show airs. I mean I've seen mid episode spoilers! I even had the winner of "Top Chef" spoiled for me! Is nothing sacred! To those who spoiler shows on facebook I say this "I know you're super hip and trendy, watching a show like "Breaking Bad" (who does that) but please, give us at least 24'hours before you blab about how shocked you are by the plot twists!" .....end rant!

So there you go, my biggest pet peeve. League updates to come when I'm home and not on my iPad ;)

Iconic Picture Spotlight - The Breakfast Club

One of my all time favorite movies, 80s, or any other decade! The perfect ending. The song is, of course, perfectly fitting and at this point iconic. John Bender throws up the old fist pump knowing he won the day. A timeless classic by the great John Hughes!

League of Extraordinary Bloggers - Feeling Blue!

So this week the League is "feeling blue!"

I decided this League assignment was the perfect opportunity to show off my Kenner Super Powers Batman Collection! Now anyone who's checked out this blog knows that I'm a huge fan of Kenner's iconic DC Super Hero Line and that I've got a pretty sizable collection. What you might not know is that Batman is my "character focus" and I've set out to collect as many variations of him as I can! I've got him on 1984, 85, and 86 US cards and even a few international cards from both north and south of the border. There's all sorts of variations and even a first shot (pre production piece) amidst the chaos! Still got a few tough ones to track the mean time Superman is next ;)
