Delorean Hot Wheels Found!

Delorean Hot Wheels Found!

So I finally, after around a year of searching local shops, found some Hot Wheels BTTF cars.  While I am super happy about this, I really wish the BTTF1 car had been the car from the start of the movie, and not the end of the movie. These two (see photo)... Read More »

A young man discovers that his father was from another dimension and that he is the key to the operation of a crystal that can be the deciding factor in a war crossing the dimensions - and that's where the thrill ends.    This sounds like a good ide... Read More »

The Red Delorean

The Red Delorean

So I'm still trying to hunt down a BTTF Delorean from the Hot Wheels Collector series. This one was was close, but it's a standard Delorean and not a Back to the Future example, actually, while I'm referring this as an 'example' its a very SHITTY example... Read More »

Just a moment

Just a moment

Just a moment to most people might be a few seconds or some other very short interval, but what you may not know is that a moment was once an actual measure of time, surprisingly longer that a minute, a moment is actually worth 90 seconds.   This fr... Read More »

Hot Wheels Retro Entertainment Series

Hot Wheels Retro Entertainment Series

A while ago Hot Wheels started producing movie/tv cars under the category Hot Wheels Retro Entertainment Series.  Normally I only collect1/25 scale cars, but since the 1/25 BTTF cars are also priced well above all the others, I thought this might satisfy... Read More »

Songs are Time Travel

"Songs really are like a form of time travel because they really have moved forward in a bubble. Everyone who's connected with it, the studio's gone, the musicians are gone, and the only thing that's left is this recording which was only about a three-minute period maybe 70 years ago."
~ Tom Waits

Hollow World

Hollow World

I've always been a massive fan of Time Travel books, sadly they are few and far between when you are an avid reader. I'm about 80% through this book and finding it to be a very interesting story and a fresh new spin on a few other tales (somewhat). Rather than... Read More »

The Anubis Gates

The Anubis Gates

This time it's not an audio book, it's a real book - I haven't read an actual real book in a while, which is strange for me as I do enjoy the actual page turning interaction of it, and I have a shitload of books. I'm reading The Anubis Gates http://en.wikipedi... Read More »

Back to the Future Time

Back to the Future Time

Just when you thought Back to the Future has already given you everything it could, there is more.  I watched this again last night and as I was also in the middle of choosing a new licence plate for my GTA5 cars, I thought I might use something from Back... Read More »

Timeline

I'm currently reading, rather listening - with Audible, to Micheal Crichton: Timeline.   Michael Crichton's novel opens on the threshold of the twenty-first century. It is a world of exploding advances on the frontiers of technology. Information... Read More »
