Pop Culture League – Gold Medal Winner

PopCultureLeague-Logo-BigIf _____ was an Olympic sport, I’d have a gold medal around my neck.

 

 I really have no idea to go with this one and keep it on the path of “Pop Culture”

If clutter on the desk was an Olympic Sport…

If Unfinished Projects was an Olympic Sport…

If Binge Watching Netflix was an Olympic Sport…

When it comes down to it, I am not overly obsessive about much of anything… I have little micro-collections on themes, but no major awe inspiring collections…

IMG_20160822_191706584-1024x576I have my Bossk’s (I also have one of Gamorrean Guards, but it is packed away right now…)

IMG_20160822_191659603_HDR-1024x576I have my Raph collection…

and of course I have my Hulks…

I have a lot of Hulks, but mostly they are things I picked up off clearence racks or Garage Sales. I have never really slapped down the big bills like the Gold Medal collectors do…

So when you get right down to it, it is far more likely that I would be sent home with a participation ribbon over a gold medal… but I am fine with that… I like my little collections.

Throw away characters

23In my favorite films there are always these tiny little characters in the background that I get interested in.

In the Star Wars Movies it has been characters like Bossk and Wedge Antillies.

In the Dawn of the Dead, one of my all time favorite movies, it was this guy here. he has just seconds of air time, but for some reason I want to know what happens to him…

This guy is what made me start dreaming up The Last Hometown…

My Art – Sketch Cards

I forgot to grab the camera out of the bedroom before the wife went to sleep… So tonight instead of a picture of the Cyclops drawing I just did you get some older drawings of mine that I have saved on the Hard Drive…

To maintain the Mutant trend we will start with a couple of Mutant Sketch Cards.

League of Extraordinary Bloggers – Who Are you… Who Who???

leaguelogo_mediumHello, my name is… Tell us a little about yourself — even if we all know who you are, there are plenty of new folks wondering if you’re in fact a dog.

Truth be told, I am not a Dog.

I am a goldfish.

(Falls over and dies from lack of water…)

Seriously though.

I am Charles. Stay-at-Home Dad, Husband,Draw-er of Things,Geek and All Around Cool Cat.

At times on the internet I have been known as CrashedNeon, Eboladuck, Crayduck, BobaDuck and now just CRPechonick.

I love this shot of all three of my girls ThinkingIn real life, I am the only male in a house of Females. That does not bother me though. Because my Wife and Children (Internet Codenamed: Wife, Red and Gold) are wonderful. I have been a stay at home father since a little after the oldest, Red, was born. Making the choice to stay at home with the kids is one of the few smart choices I have made in my life.

Being a stay at home Dad has had a side effect though. My Oldest has turned into a bit of a Tom-Boy Geek because of it. (see picture later in post) she would much rather watch Super-Hero Cartoons and goto Comic Conventions then any of your stero-typical girl stuff. Lucky for me though Goldie has turned out to be a girly girl there by redeeming me with my wife. 🙂

I am someone who is rushing through his 40’s at an alarming pace and trying to stay a kid.

I do this by drawing cartoons reading comics and being an over all geek.

I have way to many projects in development. I have enough outlined and plotted ideas to last a lifetime but very few finished pages.

My goal is to some day make some of these ideas into a comic of my own…

I am a collector.

No real central focus like some people have, but anything that catches my eye.

I do have a series of Mini-Collections, Small obsessions with certain characters or themes that have ended up in them having little displays of their own.

Some of those include Famous Cartoon Ducks, Hulk, Lego Mini-Figures, Boba Fett, Greedo, Gammorean Guards, Bossk and Green Toys.

So That is all I feel like writting right now… The house is a DISASTER and I really should be cleaning… Maybe I will return and expand on this more later… No Promises though.

Movie/TV – Recycling: Star Wars borrows from Doctor Who

UPDATE: Turns out they were actually suits used by the RAF

http://screenburn.kotaku.com/the-star-wars-costume-thats-recycled-from-a-doctor-who-1571401648

A while back I was re-watching the Second Doctor Who (Patrick Troughton) serial Wheel in Space. During the episode two astronauts show up and I right away recognized the costumes from Star Wars: A New Hope and Empire Strikes Back.

Wheel

The Costumes worn by the astronauts would a decade later be pulled back off the costume shelf and reused as the costumes for Boshek (A New Hope) and Bossk (Empire). Made for a cool little geek moment seeing that.
