Yes, that's a sickle and a mask. Everybody needs a hobby.



It's funny -- I picked up the Poe and Van Gogh toys on two consecutive weekends at two different yardsales. Paid fifty cents for one, a quarter for the other. They're both important figures to me. (Shit. That's a pun, isn't it?)


But just remember, oafboy, you want their drive and their talents. Not their fucking careers.
