Look What I Got Today!

I'm a Marvel kind of guy. I really only collect Marvel related stuff (especially The Hulk). But, I've been fascinated by DC's Metal Men since childhood. I'm not sure why, I just love 'em!

I got the rest of the Metal Men figures in the mail today. My brother bought me Platinum & Tin for Christmas. I bought Lead for myself. These guys aren't available in stores, you could only order them from

I already had Gold, Iron and Mercury. They were available in stores over the last couple of years. I also have Chemo, the Metal Men's evil enemy. He was a build-a-figure (thanks again to my brother for piecing him together).

Now, should I open them or leave them in their packaging?

My Christmas

Well, the celebrating is over. Time to relax. We had a great Christmas today. My wife and I got up around 6:15 and got our son up around 7:00. We opened our gifts and then started preparing for the feast. For the first time ever, my son deep fried a turkey (it was really good). The in-laws came over around noon with ham and other goodies. We exchanged gifts with them and then we ate. Everything went well. I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!

Christmas T-Shirt #16

Lighting Engineer

Gold Lantern

I have a few of these ornaments that belonged to my parents. Probably from the early 70s or late 60s. I'm not sure why I've always liked these, I just do. My wife isn't as fond of them as I am. She thinks they're bird cages. :)

Yay! It's December. Time to break out the Christmas shirts. Unless I buy some more, I don't have enough shirts for every day. I'll probably wear some of them twice. But, I'll only post them the first time I wear them.

Larry Hagman, R.I.P.

From Dallas News --

Larry Hagman, the North Texas native who played the conniving and mischievous J.R. Ewing on the TV show Dallas, died Friday at a Dallas hospital. He was 81.

Mr. Hagman died at 4:20 p.m. Friday at Medical City Dallas Hospital from complications of his recent battle with cancer, members of his family said.

“Larry was back in his beloved Dallas, re-enacting the iconic role he loved most,” the family said in a statement. “Larry’s family and close friends had joined him in Dallas for the Thanksgiving holiday. When he passed, he was surrounded by loved ones. It was a peaceful passing, just as he had wished for. The family requests privacy at this time.”

The iconic role of J.R. Ewing metamorphosed Mr. Hagman’s life. He rocketed from being a merely well-known TV actor on I Dream of Jeannie and the son of Broadway legend Mary Martin, to the kind of transnational fame known only by the likes of the Beatles and Muhammad Ali.

Mr. Hagman made his home in California with his wife of nearly 60 years, the former Maj Axelsson. Despite obvious physical frailty, he gamely returned to Dallas to film season one of TNT’s Dallas reboot and part of season two.

Linda Gray's agent, Jeffrey Lane, said the actress was at Mr. Hagman's bedside when he died, according to The Sun in London. He said another co-star, Patrick Duffy, was also present. “They had been friends for 35 years and they had worked together for many years, so obviously it is devastating," Mr. Lane told The Sun.
