I have many Lord of the Rings figures and other pieces from the trilogy in my collection so I was thrilled to find this in the mail from one of my bestest buddies, Dr Goat, from Arizona. Peter has been with the Cave of Cool from nearly the beginning. I have no idea how he found me but he is one of the people who gave me validation when I first started up this blog. Most days he is one of the few people who comment on anything I do and that means a lot to me. I wish we lived in an age where we could just teleport to a nice café somewhere to enjoy drinks and wings together while discussing how to solve the world's problems. It's too bad that any friends I do have live so far away from me. Maybe we wouldn't be close if my Internet friends ever met me in real life but that is unlikely to ever happen so maybe I dodged a bullet there. Again, a great piece for the collection.
Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
