Mongolion Beef

MongolionGiving me flaming-ass fire! Actually, it was the burritos. Too spicy? Too spicy! Anyway, the next in the line of Snakes of Infinity fight figures from Super7 is their collaboration with Lamour Supreme, named Mongolion and pictured above in all of its prototype glory. This is one sick-ass sculpt by none other than the great Cosmo Liquid. I can't wait for this figure to drop! They have to do one in some sort of clear yellow or orange colorway with a lot of red and gold spray. Ridiculously awesome! Definitely my favorite so far of the Snakes of Infinity series. It debuts in March, just in time for my birthday. If there is anyone out there who hasn't thought of the perfect present yet, this could be it.

Those Are Freakin' Hot!

Tokidoki x Onitsuka TigerThat was the first thing I thought when I saw these new Limited Ed. Tokidoki for Onitsuka Tiger sneakers [pictured above, right]. The sneakers, not the girl! Damn it, get your head out of the gutter. Anyway, they would look rather nice on some young ladies, and since I rarely write about anything for the fairer sex, here y'all go. I like the pink and green ones, maybe I will get a pair for Anne for Valentine's day, which comes soon after these ship on February 4th.

They also have unisex pairs, which feature a glow-in-the-dark print on the side, in gray and white and red, white and blue, for the guys who are into Tokidoki stuff. I like the gray and white ones, myself. They will run ya' $125 a pair, which isn't too bad, about average for a pair of sneakers nowadays. Well, back to work.

Erasing The Dead

The Mystic Arts of Erasing<br />All Signs of DeathTonight at 7pm at Secret Headquarters in Sunset Junction there will be a release party for Charlie Huston's new novel The Mystic Arts of Erasing All Signs of Death. There will be a very brief reading from the novel followed by Secret Headquarters' traditional stupid trivia and prizes. All preceded by cheap beer and good bourbon whiskey. The combination of which greatly improves the entertainment value of the reading and trivia, according to the e-mail that I received this morning.

Apparently, Charlie Huston's visits to Secret Headquarters are some of their favorite events and are not to be missed. I will try to make it out for this, but it all depends on when Anne and I get done with dinner. I'm not a big whiskey drinker, but I do love cheap beer, especially PBR, so this seems quite inviting. Now, back to work!
