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.
