Baby Groot Phunny Plush Doesn’t Dance

Baby Groot Phunny Plush Doesn’t Dance
I like Guardians of the Galaxy, and thought Volume 2 was pretty cool too. As with the first movie, Groot pretty much stole the show for me. Baby Groot obliviously dancing away as the opening battle sequence rages was one of my favorite parts.

Antzy Top Review: The Coolest Fidget Spinner

Antzy Top Review: The Coolest Fidget Spinner
Fidget spinners get a lot of hate. I think it’s in part because the name implies that the people who play with these things can’t control themselves, which isn’t the case. I can sit still as long as I want, but it’s kind of fun to have something in your hands you can fiddle with.

Pennywise POP! Figure Will Show You How to Float Down Here

Pennywise POP! Figure Will Show You How to Float Down Here
One of the creepiest and scariest books that I ever read was Stephen King’s IT. Pennywise the clown was freaky as hell, and in the TV movie based on the book, he was just as disturbing.

Microsoft Maluuba AI Dominates Atari 2600 Ms. Pac-Man
I had an Atari 2600 back in the day, and one of the game I played a whole a lot of was Ms. Pac-Man. I sucked at it. I got devoured by ghosts constantly, and never racked up much of a high score.

Mario Kart VR is Only Landing in Japan… And that’s BS
Bandai Namco is doing something super awesome and super annoying at the same time. It’s opening a VR arcade that will have VR version of Mario Kart complete with little karts you can sit in. The crappy part is that the arcade will only be in Shinjuku Tokyo, leaving out most of the world from enjoying it.

Pinhead 6-inch Figure Wants to Raise a Little Hell

Pinhead 6-inch Figure Wants to Raise a Little Hell
One of the scariest movies I remember seeing growing up was the original Hellraiser  Pinhead creeped me out something fierce. If you are a fan of the franchise, you will want this Pinhead 6-inch stylized figure that comes complete with real metal pins sticking out of his head.
