Insomniac Yardsale Video 110 | Rey’s ‘Operation Desert Accessorize’ (Star Wars Force Awakens Rey Unboxing)

In INSOMNIAC YARDSALE 110, it’s another Star Wars action figure — this time, destined-Jedi Rey, from Hasbro’s The Force Awakens basic figures line. Nice costume details with wrinkles and creases give the leading star’s toy version an authentic look. As she is adorned in her original desert scavenger gear from her homeworld of Jakku, the addition of a slew of 4 different accessories also illustrates her innate skills in scavenging and combat alike. We can’t wait to play her against our new Kylo Ren figure for an epic battle of good vs. evil in 3 3/4″ scale.

Insomniac Yardsale Video 109 | Ello Ello Ello (Star Wars Force Awakens Ello Asty Unboxing)

In INSOMNIAC YARDSALE 109, it’s another Star Wars action figure — this time, the X-wing Pilot, Ello Asty from Hasbro’s The Force Awakens basic figures line. Super detail with his pilot’s uniform as well as the wicked side-arm and holster are the hallmarks of this alien rebel. The only real drawback is that his helmet is not removable and thus, we never get to see Ello’s full face. But otherwise, this one is a nice addition to our resistance fleet.

Insomniac Yardsale Video 108 | Awaken To The Dark Side (Star Wars Force Awakens Kylo Ren Unboxing)

In INSOMNIAC YARDSALE 108, it’s another Star Wars action figure — this time, the dark side warrior, Kylo Ren from Hasbro’s The Force Awakens basic figures line. Great sculpting and clean, simple articulation are the triumphs of this toy. He’s also a towering character and with his robe adornments, Kylo seems all the more imposing. The sword-like light saber fits well in his hands and promises to bring hours of fun as we reenact the Star Wars Episode 7 duels.

Slumberjack Legends Video 017 | Night Trucks On Highway 60 (Experimental Music Video)

In SLUMBERJACK LEGENDS 017, it’s a return to the succinct experimentality of music videos. This one is a one-shot, one-take performance art piece paired with one of my solo tracks “Night Trucks On Highway 60”. Taken from the EP “Incubator Chicks”, recorded under the Sleepworld Radio moniker, the song lyrics connect to the video via a psychological fishing line, nearly indistinguishable and yet obvious once you’ve grabbed hold.

Chubby Bounty Hunter Video 031 | Chubby’s Your Nonna (Zito’s Marketplace Lasagna + Veggies Review)

In CHUBBY BOUNTY HUNTER 031, I’m at another grocery store hot table for lunch in the van with Mistercee. Zito’s Marketplace on Toronto’s Marlee strip is as authentic Italian as you can get in Toronto. The shelves are chalk full of house-made products and that goes for the takeout items as well. Today, I go with the server’s suggestion of lasagna with a generous side of veggies. The pasta is perfectly cooked and the meat gravy is simple and tangy with nice dimension and depth. The side veggies – a mix of green and yellow beans, carrots, and a choy-style leaf – are sauteed gently in garlic, herbs, and oil to make for tasty times. All in all, I felt like I was having dinner at Mistercee’s Nonna’s home and Mistercee agreed.

Insomniac Yardsale Video 107 | Eton’s Alpha Pod Escape (An Eton & Daddy Imaginext Unboxing & Review)

In INSOMNIAC YARDSALE 107, Eton Zootine joins me again for the final member of our Imaginext Space Alpha force. The unboxing of this diminutive Alpha Pod is a joy with all the typical Fisher Price elements crammed into such a small space. The vehicle is a ship and a claw and a cannon all in one with possible uses as an underwater vehicle as well. Now that we’ve opened our entire team of good guys, the war is brewing. Look out Ion Aliens!

Chubby Bounty Hunter Video 030 | Turk Trouncin’ Chubby (Big Turk Candy Bar Tasting & Review)

In CHUBBY BOUNTY HUNTER 030, it’s another snack-sized installment as I gobble up a Big Turk candy bar. The chocolate-covered Turkish delight is a classic Canadian treat from the fine folks at Nestle. It is a polarizing food with most people I know deriding the Big Turk as one of those sweets that NOBODY likes. But here I am and the chocolate and gelatin combo is my favourite of all the bars as well as being my ticket to the afterlife.
