gadjunk has gone all .com

That is right. I've decided to make this a serious venture. As serious as a grown man can be about toys.

I am taking this party to a bigger and better location.

Check out the new

Forget this old place. It means NOTHING to us now.

I can't help it.

They are right next to the register.


Like when I was a kid and I would beg. Sometimes I'd get them. Sometimes I'd get a smack.

So, I grab a couple. $1 a pack. Even if I spend five bucks and get one good joke or blog from them it's worth it.

I got this Bruce Wayne card. Couple of chuckles come time mind. Secret life? Him and Robin hiding things in the 'batcave.' Those glasses. The sweater/shirt combo with the gheri-permed helmet that could protect his skull better than anything connected to the bat suit.

Oh crap it's got gum!

Quick math.

Batman released in 1989. This is...check the cell phone...2009. Twenty years old.

I won't swallow it.

I'll just chew it. See what happens.

Is there still flavor? Will it still taste like gum? Will it make me sick? What is the emergency medical number? Just in case.

How the hell would I explain it?

"So, let me get this straight, you bought a pack of two decade old trading cards from a flea market and decided it would be a good idea to eat the gum? I refuse to pump your stomach. You should die for being so dumb."

It's gum. What could go wrong? If it tastes like crap I'll spit it out and grind some Rolaids in my mouth.

OLD COOL: Original gaming chair/impromptu boinking apparatus

The bed was too far away from the gaming system. NES controllers stretched, what, two feet.

You needed a comfy chair to log hours of Contra, Super Guinea Plumber, or one man Madden tournaments until the ass crack of dawn.

The Chair

It also unfolded. To lay down and really get into the two player action when the opposite sex came over to hang out.

Perfect for those chicks that refused to get into the actual bed. Because that was somehow 'dirty' and not how 'proper girls' acted. Your cans are out and my 'R button' finger is up your Umbros and about to save the Princess' peach. Totally classy.

Like the Queen of England.

FLEA MARKET FIND: The Undamaged X-Men

Found Mr. Wolverine under a pile of WWE rasslers from Summer Slam '98. 

His packaging is in pretty solid condition, corners are clean, and no huge rips from poorly placed sales stickers. He is going into the closet for safe keeping for the little gadjunk (whenever he gets here). 

This store is amazing and frustrating all in the same trip.

Finding people for A-Team movie almost as impossible as finding actual A-Team

I wanted to complete the YMCA but I lost Murdock years earlier. I didn't care, he was my least favorite.

Knight Rider. Dukes of Hazzard. American Gladiators. Shows from my childhood all ruined by unoriginal and uninspired TV and movie execs just looking cash in on a recognized brand with a hardcore fan base. The A-Team is the last piece of my childhood television viewing pleasures that hasn't been stomped on.


According to internet rumors, Twentieth Century Fox has assembled a creative team to turn the popular 80's TV series into a summer movie slated for a 2010 release. The movie has been in talks for years but what popular 80's TV sitcom hasn't been tossed around the rumor mill?

So help me Jeebus if anyone lays one finger on Punky Brewster I'll go Punky Power on all of Hollywood.
