How was your day?

edited May 2007 in Social Entropy++
I'm considering moving, so I've been thinking about what to do with my stuff. Several years ago, my parents had a storage garage. They put my mom's Christmas ornaments in there (a shitload of them, a lot of them from her mother and grandmother), along with a friend's boat, and a bunch of other stuff. A couple of years ago, the industrial park it was in burned down. It sucked.

So, today, I just realized that all of my GI Joe toys--which included most of the action figures that the first several seasons of the cartoon was based on (and by "most," I mean all but Stormshadow), a shitload of the guys from later series, and a metric fuckton of vehicles (including the hovercraft)--was also in the storage garage.

It's worth mentioning that my OCD tendencies extend back into childhood: all of these vehicles and guys still had all of the equipment they came with. Maybe one or two of the vehicles were broken in some minor fashion, but most were still in excellent--if very played-with--condition.

I almost cried.

    Could never fucking find him.

    I even had the Sergeant Slaughter figure you had to send in a bunch of UPCs from the back of other figures to get.

    i remember at one time you could order your own GI Joe made just for you

    in actuality it was just a limited edition one they made for that specific purpose and every one got the same one

    but you got custom boxart with the name you chose and stuff

    I found an alternate version of Of Montreal's Cherry Peel and a bunch of "pre-Cherry Peel" demos.

    I haven't listened to the demos yet, but one of the songs is called "Big Titted Sluts" so uhhh we'll see what happens.

    one of my fondest childhood memories

    was me and four of my friends

    disassembling GI Joes by removing the single screw in their backs

    and making custom joes

    that was so much fun.

    I still had all of the weapons to all of my GI Joes.

    Not to mention the fact that I don't have the rest of the set to go with it.

    movie was pretty good

    duke lived because optimus prime died, true story

    the movie was supposed to feature duke dying, by serpentor throwing a snake through his heart

    however earlier that year the transformers movie came out and prime was killed in it and it upset so many fans and parents and stuff so they changed it so that duke went into a coma using dialogue spoken by a character off screen

    and then at the end of the movie they were like "we just got a message from HQ, Duke's gonna be okay!"

    except duke didn't appear for the entire season of GI Joe after the movie because those episodes had already been animated and so far as was decided at the time Duke was dead
