Episode 52 : Fifty Two

10.20.08 – Episode 52 : Fifty Two

Show Notes – Tune in for Mezco’s Cinema of Fear Jason, Skeletrino from tokidoki, Steam Crow Art, blindboxes, tons of events, and hate! Whip up a delicious 10 second dip in your Magic Bullet, break open the chips, and join us for a Toy Break!

* The Magic Bullet is actualy pretty cool, great for dips and drinks. No recipe, however, takes only 10 seconds. Turns out that advertisement was a lie. We feel so deceived. Deceived and full of homemade fat-free hummus, berry smoothies, and chocolate mousse.
