Go check out Destructoid's collectible toy culture blog, which I proudly run:



Here is a list of things you should know about me:
I'm a female game/toy blogger living in New Orleans.
The NES is my favorite system of all time, closely followed by the PS2.
My DS is more or less glued to my person.
I can't resist playing Contra. Ever.
I think toys are the best solution to not wanting to grow up, and I have an always-growing collection of them, which is why I started Tomopop.
I require sushi for living.
I'm hopelessly addicted to Japanese dramas and skinny Japanese boys with awful hair.
I love wandering around used bookstores for hours.
I think about throwing rocks at people a lot.
I replay The Legend of Zelda about 5 times a year.
I read a lot.
I can't live without music.

Kon-kon!


This Pedro guy is pretty good.

And these RetroforceGo! people aren't so bad.


Actually, the people I work with are pretty freaking awesome in general.


Sometimes I put on costumes, too.

I took this picture about 3 years ago when a girlfriend of mine's dog had puppies. It's a White Highland Terrier (coolest dogs ever in case you didn't know.) I sent it to Cute Overload and it was featured a while back. Then today, I got an email....

"Your shot of the highland terrier puppeh in your hand is one of my FAVE photos. (And I git a lot of them!) I'm writing to you, as a photo owner who has been featured on Cute Overload, to ax you a question. We're gonna do a 2009 Cute Overload calendar. It's only our second product (after the well-received hamster t-shirt, natch) But back to you: would you consider letting me use your photo in the 2009 calendar? In return, I send you a free calendar, and the satisfaction of being one of tens of thousands of photos chosen..."

I know, I'm gay. But it made me HAPPY!

If you like cute little things such as this, rejoice in my unexpected success and buy the calendar -- not so much for my pic as to support Cute Overload because it's about ten times as indie as we are and run by ONE girl who collects all this awesomeness.
