Great Game Music You've (Maybe) Never Heard Before


There's a ton of really great video game music out there, but a lot of it is hidden away in the least likely of places. Today I have compiled a list of 50 (!) songs from various games that you've maybe never heard before. Here you'll find no Castlevania, no Final Fantasy, and certainly no Streets of Rage. Instead, what you'll find are some deep cuts and surprising jams from games you've potentially never even played before.

Proof of Youth: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles


Lately I have felt very uninspired. I have had a creative block and I haven't been able to come up with anything to write about at all. At the same time, lately I have been extremely nostalgic and I've been trying to relive and re-experience things from my youth, so maybe there's the answer to what I should write about.

Toys "R" Us: The Final Week Cutting Room Floor

So a while back I posted an article about the final week at Toys "R" Us. In it I had several pictures I had taken throughout the course of the week. Now that some time has passed, I thought I would post the pictures I took but didn't use for the article.

Summer convention season is quickly approaching its end, but we still have a bit to go. This past Sunday was the ToyMan Show, and I attended it along with a few friends. This time it isn't so much a comic haul as it is a toy haul.

Toys "R" Us: The Final Week


As I wrote about previously, I was am a Toys "R" Us kid. I have been for most of my life in one way or another. I thought it would be nice to talk a bit about the final week at my Toys "R" Us, store 8927.

My Lego Creations: Minifigures


I've been into Lego for a long, long time. Over the years I have created a bunch of custom Lego minifigures by switching parts around and developing a little story to go along with them. Today I'd like to show you some of the custom figures I have made for a little story I've concocted.
