I did not pay too much attention to the new star signs when the news first hit as I am not into astrology, but I do find it interesting that along with moving some of the dates they have added a whole new sign to the line up.

Several of my friends and family have changed signs. Wonder what they link of their new sign? Does it match their personality or will they stick with the old one?

The new 13th sign is Ophiuchus (how the heck do you pronounce that).

The new signs and dates are as follows:

Capricorn: Jan. 20 – Feb. 16
Aquarius: Feb. 16 – March 11
Pisces: March 11- April 18
Aries: April 18 – May 13
Taurus: May 13 – June 21
Gemini: June 21 – July 20
Cancer: July 20 – Aug. 10
Leo: Aug. 10 – Sept. 16
Virgo: Sept. 16 – Oct. 30
Libra: Oct. 30 – Nov. 23
Scorpio: Nov. 23 – Nov. 29
Ophiuchus: Nov. 29 – Dec. 17
Sagittarius: Dec. 17 – Jan. 20

Maybe this is what’s wrong with the world today? No one knows where they stand or how they are supposed to act or which horoscope to read in the daily paper!

Robby Action FigureI know I am a day late…but better late than never (and it almost felt like I would never feel like writing on my blog again…but thanks to some meds, my friends, my cat and whoring myself out with sponsored posts I am back and I want stuff!)

Check this sweet (and very expensive) Forbidden Planet figure out.

While Valentine’s Day has hardly come and gone Easter is hitting the shelves of the stores already. Target had PEEPS on the shelves Saturday when I stopped in to pick up a few goodies. I love Peeps. I especially love the Peep Shows that the Washington Post has every year. I just wish they would open it up to more than DC and the surrounding areas. I reall, really want to enter. Guess I could make my own…and maybe even have my own contest too….hmmmm. That’s what I am going to.

Okay, everybody get to working on your Peeps dioramas contest information will be coming soon…for now get some ideas brewing in your heads. At least in my contest you won’t have to deliver anything but a photo of your diorama to me.

Here are some of my favorite dioramas from the 2009 Peep Show III.

Time Travel AheadEvery day on my way to work I pass this sign (okay not exactly this sign since I photoshopped it — the real one says Travel Time Ahead). And in my dyslexic mind I ALWAYS read it as Time Travel Ahead (so I went ahead and made it say that since that is what I see in my mind’s eye anywho).

Just some random silliness.

CBS announces new licensing agreements to hock Twilight Zone merchandise inlcuding a US postage stamp (probably the reason stamps are going up to 44 cents in May). Other products will include games, dolls and Hallmark ornaments. So I guess the new Star Trek film isn’t the only thing CBS is whoring out.

I Want It Wednesday: Life-sized Captains Chair

Boy would I love one of these for my collection, but at around two grand I cannot foresee ever having one. Noting in my Star Trek collection has cost me more than $200. I just can’t bring myself to spend that kind of money on a collectible. (funny though I spent that on my other […]

Name the 50 Aliens on This Shirt

I had so much fun with my friends trying to figure out the 51 Robots on my other Chop Shop t-shirt that I thought I would do the same here with the 50 Aliens shirt. (Both of which are highly recommended by me as being both uber cool and uber geeky.) Here’s what I got […]

The number one fan of all things science fiction passes away. Forrest J Ackerman, the man who started the Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine and shared his home for years with fellow fans died last week (Dec 4th 2008). I have very fond memories of a visit to his Ackermansion back in 2000 with my […]
