How I Spent my 35th Birthday

There was a time when my birthday weekend was a booze-soaked mess that I would barely survive. Nowadays, it’s harder to black out the entire world when I my 2-year-old gets sick and my 5-month-old is up all night from teething. So how did I celebrate instead?

All I Want for Christmas is this Life Size Alien Egg from NECA

In space, no one can hear them criticize your flannel shirt.
It’s the simple things in life that make me happy. And by “simple things,” I of course mean “This Life Size Xenomorph Egg and Facehugger Set by NECA.” I was unaware of its existence as of a week ago, but now I can’t live without it.

Standing nearly 3 feet tall, it has flaps that open and comes complete with a facehugger. Not only that, the facehugger has a bendable tail, so I can wrap it around my neck, just like a 35-year-old man is supposed to do. Hopefully Santa is good to me this year. If not, I’ll just have to take off and nuke the entire North Pole from orbit. (It’s the only way to be sure.)

These E.T. Blind Bags from NECA are Worth Phoning Home About

Luckily, the super low price point on the NECA blind bag ET figures will keep anyone’s nerd rage at bay. I just bought handfuls and gave the duplicates to friends.

Thanks NECA. These things rule so hard.

My October Horror Movie List: The Sequel Sampler

Along with the rest of the Horrorphiles on the planet, I live it up in October. While I used to do 31 horror movies in 31 days (like everybody else), the presence of a 2-year-old and 3-month-old in my house has greatly reduced my ability to do that.
