Don't get me wrong. I am a big fan of this Jeebus. Loves me some Jeebus. Hated what they did to him. He had a lot of good ideas. He also invented the most comfortable style of summer footwear, the sandal or as we called them as kids, JESUS BOOTS. I would never have this piece in my collection. I have an action figure of JOHN A. FREAKIN' Macdonald and Wilfred Laurier (figures of our first and 7th Prime Ministers - who DOES that?) so I know about crappy figures as much as good ones but even I have my limits. I don't have a OUIJA board for the same reason. It's all just bad JU JU.
No one can ever claim that my collection doesn't have depth.
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.
