Unsolicited commentary and thoughts


These new Urban Vinyl-influenced Star Wars Mighty Muggs toys came out, and for the first time in six years I find myself scrambling around from store to store trying to find the “hard to get” one. This time around the store happens to be Target, or the Red Dot Boutique as I like to call it, and the hot one happens to be the intergalactic bounty hunter Boba Fett. I forgot how proud I felt as a 19 year-old pimply faced college student asking the high school-aged employee when a new shipment of toys would get in, and it’s just as embarrassing as a 25 year-old pimply faced man-child. Well I finally got Boba Fett nonetheless, and he’s enjoying his spot on my desk at work next to Darth Vader. Han and Chewie, I’ll come back for you two later.

While on the hunt I came across a real live De Lorean. It made a mean sound when it accelerated so I assume it had been modified, and the driver was in an awful rush, probably trying to hit 88 so he could get to wherever he was going sooner. I’ll tell you what would be in my CD player if I owned a De Lorean: Huey Lewis.
