As soon as we heard word that Classic Articulation and The House Of El were featured on Rano's site, we were totally flummoxed (that means 'surprised') as Kal-El and I were under the impression that our readers were the strong but silent types.
It's pretty cool how far a blog reaches when it's been around for long enough. But, we would both have to admit that from time to time it does get a little trying to be free enough to get online to add in new updates: I guess, it all comes down to passion.
Just thinking back: I could be a rich guy if I could get 50 cents from every person whose thrown me a weird glance for spending days and days stalking through toy departments and children's sections: it all comes down to passion.
A big shout out to Rano and Simpur for encouraging bloggers to blog and for taking this little hamlet of Brunei online - we have to move with the times, but we still have to stay retro, we have to stay classic.
I don't mind the votes, but the support is what is most rewarding - knowing that that niche culture is here at home too. This blog was only started this year and it's still cool to be a geek.
But ladies and gentlemen, that's not the end of the story for Kal-El and I. We have big, big plans for this coming year. Trust me - plans that will knock your retro socks off.
I encourage everyone to keep their ears to the ground and to watch and wait as we move to the next level of toy-worship.
Be safe, all our friends. May next year be a good year. For everyone.
