Are Stamp Expos Necessary?

November 9th, 2014

Stamp ShowThere aren’t a lot of stamp collecting podcasts but I’ve been listening to a new one called Stamp Show Here Today.  They had an episode recently about the 2014 SESCAL stamp show and how it seems that people are starting to go back to some of these shows, following a mass exodus with the advent of the Internet because it’s cheaper and easier to just buy something online than it is to travel to a show and dig through dealer boxes.

That’s Not a Crash!

November 7th, 2014

crash2I used to fly R/C planes and drive R/C cars a long, long time ago. It’s been many years since I stopped, probably close to 20 years now since I had a plane in the air and somewhat less since I drove a car around a track, but I still enjoy watching it and every time I go into a hobby shop, I get the strong desire to get back into it, even though I know I have no time, nor proper facilities close by. One thing that a lot of people enjoy watching are R/C planes crashing and I came across a bunch of videos on YouTube, but honestly, I have to say that most of the so-called crashes aren’t really crashes. So read on and we’ll explore mass destruction of R/C planes together.

J-Drama Review: Tenchu (2014)

November 4th, 2014

TenchuMy pile of J-dramas that I need to watch form a tower that is unbelievably high. I just don’t have much time to jump into them, but on those rare occasions that I can, sometimes I come across a real gem, like 2014’s Tenchu, a surprising 8-episode tale about ninjas and warriors of justice in modern day Tokyo.  No, it isn’t as weird as that might sound, in fact, it’s a really nice piece about family and forming bonds and, of course, kicking some serious ass.  But is it a great series?  Of course, you’ll have to continue on to find out!
