These Are a Few (more) of My Favorite Things

25 Aug

It’s that time again folks.  I’m feeling lazy, but there’s no way in hell I’m gonna drop the ball now with only a week to go on my self imposed “Blog a Day for the Month of August Challenge.”  So here is a mostly visual based blog, featuring pictures of more exciting selections from the official Domingosaurus “Archives of Awesomeness.”

First off, Me!  (From way back when I was cast in a Stephen King movie, oddly enough as female twins.  Let’s face it, it just doesn’t get much scarier than that.)

COME PLAY WITH US! FOR EVER…AND EVER…AND EVER…..

A beeramyd. An incredible feat of architectural engineering unmatched since the days of Ancient Egypt.  Unfortunately my cat Vader discovered it seconds after this photo was taken, and it became on incredible feat of instant chaos.

003

My ever expanding collection of vintage 70’s-80’s era Fisher Price Little People (and accompanying accessories and play-sets.)  Incidentally the more modern versions of these toys (which they still make) are fat and stupid looking which I suppose is a more accurate representation of today’s average American.  (Also I suppose so they’re not as easy to choke on.  Hmph.  When I was a kid we just knew better than to choke to death on our toys!)

A little ceramic bust of Neil Diamond.  (I don’t think I can really add to this with mere words.)

007

A very small sampling of my collection of VHS tapes.  Some movies really are better on VHS.  Like all the original Friday the 13th movies.  I actually love making a big bowl of popcorn, busting out one of several VCR’s I still have laying around, and popping some of these movies in once in awhile.  (Takes me back to the good ole days…)

009

Relatively recent Star Wars action figures of varying sizes.  (WILDLY varying sizes.)

006

And an assortment of VINTAGE Star Wars action figures, which are oddly enough all pretty much the same size.  (Most of these I’ve had since I was a kid.  Oh wait, did I say since I was a kid?  I meant since I was a much younger kid.)

011

A picture I drew of Boris Karloff.  (Every once in awhile I do some “arting.”)

396219_10100286116951434_1705512095_n

A boxed set containing what is pretty much the Ramones entire discography.  (Total runtime: 25 minutes.)

013

OK I was kidding.  It takes at least 45 minutes to listen to every Ramones song.

My recent high scores at Galaga.  Read the names from top to bottom.  Uh huh.  That’s right.

382342_10100151870422554_765164221_n

A small portion of my glow in the dark ceiling.  It puts the local Planetarium to shame.

522126_10100529437285534_506059775_n

And to close out this post by using some of the most disturbing imagery I could find, here are a few instances in which I have badly cropped my own face into some of my favorite album covers.  (Have fun trying to sleep now.  I’ll be leering directly into your soul!!!)

10422350_10102156944058914_664357056593255768_n

10422549_10102156859583204_8666404912561138748_n

11096628_10102191209331034_1072535329968368514_n

Oh wait, one more of my favorite “things” in the form of my favorite Red Foreman quote:  “Good Night.  Sleep Tight.  And don’t let the bed bugs put their foot up your ass.”

    VHS tapes? You still have VHS tapes?! (Isn’t it scary I find that more bizarre than a ceramic bust of Neil Diamond?)

    • domingosaurus August 25, 2015 at 1:26 am #

      Well doesn’t everybody have at least one? (ceramic bust of Neil Diamond that is.)

      • Carrie Rubin August 25, 2015 at 1:34 am #

        Haha, of course!

        I have a gargoyle in my front yard, so I shouldn’t talk. But it’s a way of thumbing my nose at the city’s building regulations. I’m such a middle-aged rebel.

        Fight the POWER!

      • Carrie Rubin August 25, 2015 at 1:38 am #

        Absolutely. As long as I can still watch my shows while I do it.

    Nice Star Wars collection!! Jealous! 🙂 I have several VHS around somewhere just no way to watch. My big thing is vinyl though and I DO have the means to play those in the form of this HUGE record player/stereo/8 track (yes 8 track!) from the 70s. I would likely cry if anything ever happened to that.

    • domingosaurus August 25, 2015 at 1:45 am #

      I haven’t had a working record player in years, but I do still have about 3 or 4 hundred of my records. (Down from about 2000.) I have a few 8 tracks around somewhere too. (I love nostalgia.)

    • domingosaurus August 25, 2015 at 1:50 am #

      And by the way that’s not even CLOSE to being any sort of representation of my whole collection of Star Wars things. A whole blog would be required for that. (Possibly even a mini-series of blogs.)

    Funny story about Neil Diamond. I was in a store a few weeks ago & Sweet Caroline was playing. A young kid in front of me, probably around 8 years old starts singing…Sweet Caroline, ba ba ba…. I smiled thinking how this song has transcended generations. I wonder what Neil would think?

    • domingosaurus August 25, 2015 at 7:02 pm #

      He would probably shove her down and say “Get away from me little girl! Don’t you know I’m Neil Diamond?” (I’ve heard many stories about him being a jerk to people.)

    Thank you for distinguising between younger kid and kid 🙂

    I bought a few of the old-school Fisher Price people earlier this year on ebay. Crazy how the new ones look; lumpy, awkward and no imagination needed it seems.

    • domingosaurus August 25, 2015 at 4:22 pm #

      It’s the bright primary colors and generic look of the older Fisher Price Little People stuff that I like most.

  5. BunKaryudo August 27, 2015 at 4:06 pm #

    No wonder storm troopers always win. They can just trample everybody else.

    • domingosaurus August 27, 2015 at 9:59 pm #

      Good thing too, cause they couldn’t hit the side of a Sandcrawler with a ten foot wide laser beam.

    I have our old Fisher Price stuff! The boat I’m not sure about – I know I had one. But I have the house, and the schoolhouse, and a load of ‘little people’ and animals (most missing a leg or tail, they dry rotted over the 40 years I’ve had them). Cool!

    Your Twins pic reminds me of what Aphex Twin does in his music videos. Ever seen come to daddy? Nightmare stuff right there. Even worse is that he looks JUST like my husband. Actually you look a bit like him, too – just not a blonde.
