Yup, in a year that has seen the deaths of Leonard Nimoy, Terry Pratchett, "The American Dream" Dusty Rhodes, and "Rowdy" Roddy Piper, the Reaperman has taken another icon of popular culture: Yvonne Craig.
Well, I mean, three is many faces to have. Three is the number. Four is too much and two is not enough unless it's followed by a third. And five is right out*. I actually had a Man-E-Faces when I was a kid. It was a pretty good toy and the face switching never got old. Need a Wolverine-like berserker? Covered. Need a robot to team up with your Autobots or plot with the Decepticons? Done. The human face would probably work well with superhero action figures as either a hero or villain from the future. Like many of my childhood toys, I have not one clue about what ever became of it.
*I'd like to take this moment to apologize to Monty Python and the entire fandom for that butchering of a classic scene from Holy Grail.
So yeah, I decided to rename Giant-Size Nerd-Thing! to Nerd Trash for a number of reasons:
1. Felt like it. What can I say? I'm whimsical.
2. Giant-Size Nerd-Thing! is a bit much to type.
In addition, I used my nascent MS Paint skills to create a header. Check out that sweet ass font, yo. Here it is, in case you're reading this post after I've undoubtedly changed the header a dozen times in the near future.
I do plan on changing the header from time to time, but it won't be on like a monthly basis or anything and it'll be more of a rotation, so previous ones will be revisited.
I'm also going to be cleaning up the blogrolls, adding new blogs and eliminating others. Theme-wise, I'm going for old cartoons, comics, movies, toys, etc. In light of that, I'll probably be purging posts that are no longer relevant.
The new Blade is a high school girl named Fallon Grey who also happens to be the daughter of original Blade. You know, the one Wesley Snipes played in three movies? He's in the series too, but I'm assuming that from the above picture, she's probably going to get more of the attention. Comic Book Resources has an interview with Tim Seeley, the writer of the new series. Worth reading.
