A new model for Back To The Future Part II

Happy New Year 2016

Back almost 3 years ago, I posted pics of my Back To The Future Hot Wheels models. This last year, there was a new model released of the DeLorean from the iconic movie series. This time, it’s the hover converted time machine from Part II.

I tried to find it for the longest time, even considering paying $15 on Amazon for one. Until late last year, while shopping at Target, I decided to once again, look through all of the Hot Wheels in their toy section. And I found one. For 99 cents. I looked for a second one, but alas, just the one was found. Which means this stays sealed in it’s original packaging. If I do happen to find another one, it will be opened for this fan to display next to my other model from 2013.

I hope to keep collecting these over the years, even if I don’t have each and every model released.

CISPA Blackout

CISPA blackout

Last month, I posted about CISPA being a bad bill and that it passed in the House of Representatives and is now heading to the senate. That time is now and today we are asking you to call your senators to tell them to vote NO on this privacy destroying bill.

One small amendment to this bill gives employers the right to demand your login details to your social media sites/accounts like Facebook and Twitter, using this information to “know” more about you before they decided to hire you. Not only is this a weak excuse to find out about potential employees, it’s a breach of your privacy.

Find Your Senators

If the Senate passes this bill, call the White House and tell Mr. Obama he needs to veto it.

LEGO is opening a Utah Location

utah lego store coming soon
Utah will be getting it’s first LEGO store

As the screenshot above shows, Utah will have it’s first official LEGO store opening in 2013. The official LEGO store page announced this back on Feb 21st. I wonder how I missed this?

Now to wait for the grand opening date and to plan accordingly.

JLaw Gets Jack’d Up

After the Oscar telecast on Sunday night, interviews with the winners happened.

Of note, this was one of the best:

Jack is 53 years her older. Or JLaw is 53 years his younger.

Please don’t date each other. This was cute and fun. Seeing these two together will not be.

David Bowie “Where Are We Now?”

Announced on his 66th birthday, The Thin White Duke is back with new music. Check out the very mellow new song [and somewhat odd video] above.

The new album “The Next Day” is available on March 12th. Click here to pre-order on iTunes.

LEGO Brings BTTF

It’s true. Sometime in 2013, there will be an official LEGO Back To The Future set. Complete with Marty and Doc minifigures and a Delorean.

I can’t wait.
