Nerds

One of the Madman’s Very Unofficial Top Ten Films Of All Time, without a doubt, is Fight Club. Based on the novel by Chuck Palahniuk and brilliantly manifested for the screen by David Fincher, Fight Club was the type of film that defied categorization, somehow addressing and articulating the inexplicable, inchoate anxiety and bullshit and disenchantment of the Modern American […]


Why build a lopsided breakable toy handgun like a big boy when you can build it like a bad ass? Everything is better in gold! Except, perhaps, for teeth. Think Geek (the makers of totally important and necessary stuff like a Star Trek phaser remote control and the ability to make Zen ice cubes) wants you to bling out […]

Defender of the Universe & stander of desktops

For all you Voltron nerds, it’s time to get your G0Lion on thanks to the geeks at Think Geek. You know, the geniuses that made these super spiritual ice dudes possible. Aside from being a little 4″ super-deformed Voltron figure (as if that wasn’t enough), this trinket comes with a shitload of features such as […]


Nothing beats the visceral satisfaction of finding music classics on vinyl at the local swap meet. Or better yet, swiping classic rock records from Dad’s forgotten collection. But there has to be something said about getting those old jams freshly remastered onto brand new, fresh-off-the-press wax. In that case, you’ll be happy to hear about Led Zeppelin remastered boxed […]

The Micheal Lau (sometimes known as Crazy Smiles) Garden(palm)er collection continues. You may remember last installment from this past Spring, created in conjunction with How2Work toys. The third Garden(Palm)er Series finally shipped in late December after having preorders booked back since Summer. Each 10-piece set of 1/12th-scaled articulated figures went for $650, the toy figurines standing at about 18cm and having 16 […]


Newly available on the Rotofugi Limited store is the especially limited-edition exhibition toy-piece known as “The Passage — Ignited“. Created by Mark Landwehr and Sven Waschk of Coarse, “The Passage” is available on a strict one-per-household basis, with a total of 150 available in all. If you’re not familiar with Coarse, you’re probably not nearly nerdy enough, but you can take a catch-up course in […]


A lotta love and and all hands on deck went into creating this toy likeness of the late James Yancey, known to most as J-Dilla, aka Jay Dee, aka Jay Donuts. Rest in peace, sir. Funded by the estate of Pay Jay Productions, this vinyl J-Dilla stands 7.5″ tall and is rocking the Stussy tee, a […]


I remember the first time I went to Wyoming as a kid with my dad, and they had Jackalope postcards everywhere. I was fascinated. What the hell was this amazing creature, and how come I’d never heard of it before? This fantastic hybrid looked like any ordinary rabbit, except it had deer-like horns on top […]
