Traditionally speaking, at least everywhere else in the world that celebrates the holiday, the Twelve Days of Christmas begin Christmas Day. This period is also known as Christmastide. The Twelfth Day of Christmas is 5 January, with the celebrations of Christmas traditionally ending on Twelfth Night and is followed by the Feast of the Epiphany […]

Happy Beer Drinking Day!
March 17th, 2010 by slangon

Or as my mom calls it, St. Paddy’s Day. In honor of all the boisterous teens who were cutting school in order to go to the NYC St. Patrick’s Day Parade that were on my train this morning, preventing me from reading my newspaper in peace, and the drunken fools who will inevitably be on […]

I Think I’ve Found A New Card Obsession
September 22nd, 2009 by slangon

Ever since I’ve gotten back into collecting, I’ve always wanted to own a few cards from the big, old sets. I’ve gotten a handful of cards from some of the big sets of the ’30’s and ’40’s, but I’ve been stymied so far in my quest to own a T205 and a T206. I like […]

August 28th, 2009 by slangon

Thinking About Design So the checklist is not final, but it’s being worked on. I’ve contacted a few folks to get their input as to who from their team they would pick using my 2 man criteria. I’ve heard back from a few, still waiting on others. In the meantime, since I’ve already made up […]
