Yay! I made another unboxing! The FairyLoot unboxing February 2017 was super fun. First, because I got the box in record time (it was sent on Friday, and I got it on Saturday); and, second, because the contents are amazing! If you’re a bookworm obsessed with fantasy and science fiction, this box is an excellent idea. Plus, it has something called reading buddies. You get a card with a code. Someone else will get the same code. You post a picture, unboxing video or whatever on your social media, use your code and find your buddy! So, I hope that my potential future partner is out there and is as crazy as I am. Please, post something on your social media so I can find you!
This post (and the video) contain tons of spoilers. Boxes are still on their way for many people, so if you’re waiting for yours and don’t want to be spoiled, I recommend you to stop reading here. And, of course, stay away from the video. If you aren’t a subscriber or you don’t mind spoilers, keep on reading and discover the treasure!
Welcome to Funko Friday! Today I’m going to talk about Funko Pops and books on Instagram this week. I’ve changed a bit the way I post on Instagram, and to reflect that I decided to share an appetizer here. Why? Because I love Pops, comics, and books. Yes, for me comic books are books. And so, I start with Valentine’s Day! I got a blind date with a book. Although the unboxing (rather un-wrapping) video will come later on, I can tell you that this made my day! I was quite gloomy, and suddenly I got this mysterious present. It doesn’t say who the sender is nor the sender knows what book I got! (So, unless you tell me who you are, I’m not going to tell you what book was inside before releasing the video. Ha!)
I felt like getting Newt‘s suitcase in a way. You don’t know what’s inside, nor the scope of that magical suitcase. In any case, this idea rocks and I loved it. I also had a blast unwrapping the whole thing. (Yes, I’m still editing the video.)
I have a 1 Month Free Marvel Unlimited Subscription for a lucky person! If you love Marvel Comics, you might love this subscription. I’m a subscriber of Marvel Unlimited. You can read as many comics as you want. However, the subscription doesn’t include the latest titles. These come up after six months hitting the stands. But, I assure you that you have enough comics to read for a lifetime! You have access to all the classics, to all X-men, to everything Marvel! The subscription only costs 9.99USD a month, so I think that the deal is pretty good.
So, what to do to get this free month? Easy! Follow me on my social media, share all about this post and do it right now! I’ll announce the winner this Sunday!
Today is the World Anthropology Day, according to the American Anthropological Association (aka AAA). What better way to celebrate it than exploring the art of geek observation? Anthropologists observe what people do, why they do it, how they do it, and even when they do it. To explore a culture is to explore humanity. But can only anthropologists engage in the art of observation? Can we, as observed beings, also become the ones who observe?
Usually, the ones observing what’s going on are anthropologists. They watch, interact and take part into the object of study. But can we, as geeks, do the same? We have the idea that Anthropologists are either “Indiana Jones” or like dull academic creatures. However, we, geeks, can be anthropologists too.
So, it happened with J.K.Rowling’s Wizarding World Loot Crate unboxing! I made a video! It took me three days of wait until I could open my box and prepare myself to talk in front of a camera. This box came quite late since Loot Crate came up with some problems getting all the items. As I understood, we had to choose our House, and they would send us times from our House. However, items came mixed. To my delight, I got a tee from Slytherin. It seems that they’ll be sending a House-themed box next time. I hope they do since I was expecting that from this box.
When I was sorted in Pottermore, I got Ravenclaw. Then I tried again, and I got into Slytherin. So, I suppose I must be a mix of them: Raverin. Although I end up rooting for Slytherin, I have to confess that I do have Ravenclaw traits. Besides, I love Luna as well!
This past week I’ve been watching Outlander (Amazon). Although I’m not into romance, the time traveling aspect of the show seems enough to give it a try. I found the show on Amazon Prime, and so far it’s a jewe. Claire travels back in time in Scotland when she is traveling with her husband after WWII. When she touches ancient stones, she is thrown back to the 18th century in middle of the concoction of a war: English against Scotts. She ends up saved and prisoner among the Scottish.
Claire is a woman of the 20th century: a nurse that served in the War, a smart and independent woman. When she sees Jamie wounded, she cures him making her valuable. Although the Scotts think that she’s an English spy at the beginning, she ends up earning their trust after a long time.
Welcome to Comics THORsday on Friday. This is a mashup with Funko Friday. Today we’re exploring Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur Vol. 1: Bff (Amazon) along with Uhura. I bought Moon Girl by chance. The cover of the trade is quite funny. Although I couldn’t figure out how a story about an evil dinnosaur could fit in the Marvel Universe, I bought the trade anyway. It was a smart move sin the trade is very funny.
This is a comic for all ages: it’s sweet, smart, and funny. It has a great recipe for having tons of fun. What’s more: it has a great recipe for natural diversity. What do I mean with “natural diversity”? A type of diversity that isn’t forced but it feels like just walking in the streets. The only magical thing here is the dinosaur.
The best thing of Once Upon a Time in its second season is Captain Hook! I’m not going to lie to you: Killian Jones is the sexiest pirate in history, or so tell my exploding ovaries. Snow and Emma end up in the Enchanted Forest just after the curse is broken. In this season we’re having lots of cool flashbacks with all the characters, and the appearance of some new ones. For starters: Killian Jones. But also a new villain to take care about: Cora, Regina’s mother.
This season is cool because you can choose from an excellent array of villains. You’ve got Mr. Gold, Captain Hook, the Evil Queen, Cora, and even Charming’s “Dad.” But there’s something else: we get to know what happens when you obsess over things and when you decide for others. I’m talking about Belle’s Dad and his attempt to make her forget Rumple. Both Rumple and he decide for her. But, what about her opinion? Isn’t she old enough as to choose what she likes?
Welcome to Funko Friday! Today we’re going to have fun with DC Suicide Squad Harley Quinn Funko Pop. Although I didn’t like DC’s movie Suicide Squad, I did like Harley Quinn. She is completely bonkers, and incredibly sexy. But she is a walking bomb too. You never know when she’s going to explode!
I find that the Pop is better than the real character. Simply put: this Pop is super cute! She is detailed and has very funky colors. To be honest, this is the funniest Pops I own! My DC collection is starting to look a little bit more promising with a Batgirl and a Harley Pops. (I’m sure it won’t grow too much since I’m not such a DC fan.)
Welcome to Harry Potter Book Night: the Professors of Hogwarts! Last year we played games related to Harry Potter, and so we’ll do the same this year! But the games are different, of course. You’ll find part of the fun on this post, and the rest of my Social Media. All Professors have something cool surrounding them. However, my favorite is Severus Snape. Who is your favorite Professor?
Prepare yourself for a night of magic! This post is going to be long and mysterious. I’m not going to write the answers to all the questions today. You’ll need to wait for a day so that people can have fun first! Besides, if you had all the answers at the end of the post, it wouldn’t be that fun, would it?
