I'd like to say this is because Blogger is a pain to edit a lot of the time, and it is, but mainly, it's because I've been having fun playing with Tumblr and new, shiny things are always more exciting.

So, from now until I change my mind again, new posts will be at I'm not going to delete this blog, though. Importing all the old posts into Tumblr was only moderately successful and to be honest, I'm still a big fan of how Blogger deals with archives.

But how and ever. Come and visit, won't you?

When I was four, we didn't have Super Mario Kart. We had to content ourselves with the sort of Matchbox car collections that these days you'd be more likely to see as part of the set design in the next Wes Anderson movie. One guy had the Lotus from The Spy Who Loved Me, in full underwater mode. When he pulled that out it was like the business card moment in American Psycho. If we had access to a chainsaw, Phil Collins and a Manhattan apartment in that moment, we'd have known what to do.

I had a Pontiac Firebird. It was red and the front wheels were mashed in such a way that you couldn't roll it properly. Still, Knight Rider, right?

Anyway, when I saw this, my four year old self jumped into the front of my brain and demanded we go Ebay surfing. He also wanted candy, but screw him, I've got a beer to finish.

Fleshbot or Facebook? You figure it out. I'm not going near this.

Even though I can't see how this will work, these guys get a free pass. Not you, Lucas.

Bet you didn't know he was one of the good guys.
