I get nostalgic about some of my earliest memories of the video stores around my town in the early 1980s. Video Rental Shops were such a big part of growing up in the 80s and the beginning stages of my adult life in the 90s. It’s understandable why they went extinct, but it’s still a shame.
In this episode I unbox Jedi Master Yoda and he wreaks havoc in my side of the laundry room. I also show-off some great “fan mail” donations sent to me from an awesome viewer.

This week’s entry is from the very insightful Jeff from The Imperial Talker. Jeff has a tremendous Star Wars blog that looks at the bigger picture of Star Wars and how it reflects on our world with social views and commentary. He also has some great haiku poems and needs to bring that feature back, ASAP!
For his entry into “Fiction’s Fearless Females”, Jeff chose the first Princess I ever had a crush on, Princess Leia. As a kid I was smitten with Leia for her strength and no BS approach to the Empire. I think this was the first time I ever saw a girl stand up to the villain of a story and not really ever waver in her convictions, She wanted to bring them down and she stopped at nothing to try and complete this goal.
For his entry, Jeff has only chose to cover Leia’s story in The New Hope. With such a deep and fascinating history this is the best place to start while talking about Princess Leia. Hit the link below to read this great entry into the Fiction’s Fearless Females event.
In this issue I grab a Fist Full of Joe Comic Books and I look at some Winnie the Pooh toys that were prizes in boxes of cereal.
In this episode I take a look at some of the biggest romances in the worlds of cartoons, movies, and comic books that left a big impression on me as a kid.
In this Issue of IT CAME FROM… My Side of the Laundry Room I show-off a really great Jabba the Hutt figure from the Star Wars Black Series that was donated by a fan -and- I open and play with some original Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Ranger Happy Meal toys from 1989.
