My Favorite He-Man

We all have at least one toy that we've held on to since the second we got it. Something big or small that just remains one of the lasting connections to our childhoods. It could represent a moment that means something, it could also just be that favorite toy we would take to the playground or that long roadtrip to your aunt's house. My choice is the ultimate figure that captures all that and more as well as providing the perfect link to my lifelong devotion to the Masters of the Universe: Flying Fists He-Man was a variation of the titular hero that was released alongside a similar version of Skeletor called "Terror Claws Skeletor" in 1986, which was a point where the line started to begin to go downhill in popularity. At that time, you were a loyal MOTU collector and fan, it had been years since you purchased the original figure and prolly needed a new upgrade. And while there have been other cool looking variants, in my opinion, this was the coolest. It still remain


I told myself I wouldn't do any more of these theme months until Thanksgiving. I actually had a full slate of Ghostbusters content I wanted to produce this summer but with the movie being pushed back it just wasn't doable. Then about a month and a half ago, I realized needed something to energize me. Blogging, creatively, podcasting, whatever, I just need something to motivate me and as it has been the case since I was a kid, that's when He-Man stepped into save the day... MOTU MONTH, a fun He-Man-centric event that I started back in 2017, has always been something I looked forward too. It always made me dig into the mythology of my favorite childhood toyline and explore things that even I didn't know about! It's a fun time of year. Of course I know everyone is gearing up for Halloween and fall but I'm just still trying to squeeze that last feeling of summer and when I think of summer, I think of being a kid and having as much fun in the backyard with my GI Joes

On His Own: A Tribute To Bobby Brown and The Ghostbusters

Ghostbusters 2 remains not just my favorite Ghostbusters movie, but one of my all time favorite movies. There's just so much going on in this movie that I just adore and one of those things happens to be one of the songs from the soundtrack and one of the most random cameos ever by none other than R&B's original bad boy, Bobby Brown!
