One of the perks of being in the Bay Area is that there are some really cool toy stores up in here. One of them, Time Tunnel Toys, even puts on a great toy show every once in a while. It goes beyond just toys, however, and includes a bunch of other cool stuff, such as celebrity appearances. This weekend will be playing host to a couple of cool cats, such as Veronica Cartwright (Alien, Invasion of the Body Snatchers) and Walter Jones (original Black Ranger).

When it comes to things to see in Los Angeles, there’s quite a bit. But one small stop is easy to miss: The Hyaena Gallery. A veritable little shop of horrors, the Hyaena Gallery is home to a large amount of paintings, sculptures, posters, and MUCH more. Each piece has one thing in common: it’s highly unusual. Some might say macabre, or dark. Perhaps even ghoulish. And I mean that in the most complimentary way possible.
A couple of more additions to Sideshow’s Halloween Spooktacular, including Aliens, Indiana Jones, The Joker, a Deadpool peek and a great deal more!
Here’s the new additions:
Yesterday we mentioned that Sideshow Collectibles was running their Spooktacular event, in which they have all sorts of contests and prizes. What we didn’t know is there’s much more than we saw yesterday, as they’re adding new contests daily.
Ah Halloween, the most corpse lootiest of all holidays. And no, Christmas doesn’t count. It’s more of a trade/loot situation, with usually very few corpses. And Sideshow Collectibles is here to make Halloween all the better with their annual Spooktacular event!
I like stuff. A lot. It’s probably one of the things wrong with America, my liking things so much. One of my favorite things are statues and busts from movies and comics. Usually pointed to in popular culture as the sign of being a shut in loser, people don’t tend to realize the artistic value many of these items have. Plus they represent another aspect of culture not given enough credit for its artistic qualities.
I’ve been to and through Los Angeles a couple of times now but, until recently, I haven’t really had much time to explore. So when I finally got out and hit the pavement, I was thrilled at what I found. There are a lot of great places in L.A., but one of my new favorites is definitely Dark Delicacies.
