    What do you geek out on , besides toy collecting?

    For me it's the wild west and Hamlet I usually read every article or notice every time it pops up somewhere while out in public.

    You are transparent; I see many things... I see plans within plans.

    I'm a conspiracy guy myself, it's hard to bring it up sometimes. But to think there isn't a vanishing point on power and control of society would be extremely naive or stupid.

    Anyway , I'd love to collect vintage paperbacks but it's hard to know where to start. I love the Frazetta covers and my grandpa had multiple copies of every ERB novel. Someone pointed out the first Masters of the Universe wave was a greatest hits of all the Sword and Sorcery and sci-fi tropes of 70's paperbacks. That's why I love them now.
