Favorite Things: August

I have a bad habit of collecting t-shirts. I almost have more than I can wear in a month (mostly because I have to be a professional and can only wear them 3 days a week tops) and yet I want more. There are a couple of cool websites I look at a lot. One is bustedtees and the other is J!NX.

Albert Einstein: Time Mason (comic) by Tony Donley.

Albert Einstein travels through time and looks like a young Tom Selleck. It looks funny and quirky and that's just the kind of comic I can appreciate! For as little as $1 you can get the first issue in PDF format. For $12 you can get the print version plus a signed 6.5/10 print and a couple other perks. Hurry up and check it out... The Kickstarter ends August 31st!

Loot Crate
This month was my first time getting Loot Crate. I heard about it from a couple of YouTube unboxing videos last month and thought it looked cool... every month I'll get a geeky present. From myself. Plus if you get it right now and enter the code "ANIMATE" when you check out you'll get 12% off! There are some pros and cons with it, though.

The pros: You get cool stuff and the total amount of the items in the box would cost you more to buy them individually, so you're going to get your moneys worth.
The cons: You may not always like what you get. It's a chance you have to take if you get it every month.

If you like surprises and want some cool mail every month, I recommend this! Plus it makes a great gift!

The shirt: Caffeine Power Up from Shirt.Woot
The vinyl zombie: Walking Dead Blind Box Mystery Minis


  1. I have such a big list of tee shirts that I want that I'm going to have to post them on my blog soon. I just got a Star Wars one from ThinkGeek and a Tim Burton one from Qwertee and I really don't need any more shirts, but oh I want more. And I just discovered LootCrate this month, but I haven't bought one yet. I'm waiting for a theme I really like. I'm kind of sad I missed the Star Wars one. Hopefully they'll do another Star Wars one sometime in the future.

    1. I'm sad I missed Star Wars too! But I've got my fingers crossed for a Doctor Who theme in November since it's the 50th anniversary.

      P.S. Cool blog!
