Austin Toy Museum

Every time I went to WizWorld, this organization brought a diorama to advertise their existence. So Somara and I finally checked the place out. It’s located downtown and on the East side of the interstate in a modest-sized building. Overall it was … Continue reading

“Weird Al” is my co-pilot!

A recently released action figure who comes with two heads; his pre-1999 look and his current look; one interchangeable hand; to hold a microphone instead. I currently have him sitting on my work server to keep it company while I’m … Continue reading
