The Unboxening: October Lootcrate

So, here's a video I made. It features me opening a box full of toys.

I'm only on my second month, but I have to say I'm enjoying Lootcrate. It's kinda like ordering the sampler platter from a geek buffet. I'm also thinking of trying Nerd Block. I like how Lootcrate's theme is different each month, but there's something to be said for getting to pick your poison with Nerd Block.

Speaking of geek stuff, I've also found a couple of t-shirt sites that I really like: Once Upon A Tee and Companion Tees. Each site offers a new collection of shirts each week (I think they have options for hoodies, mouse pads, phone covers, etc., as well). Companion Tees focuses on Doctor Who (often mashed up with other fandom), while Once Upon A Tee covers a more general range of fandom. They're sister sites (I think it's the same company), but completely separate...which is slightly annoying since you can't combine orders.

That's all for now. Enjoy your weekend.


  1. I was unable to comment on the video itself at YouTube. You didn't seem overly thrilled with this month's crate.

    1. Yeah...disabled comments on the video. The idea was to focus more on the blog than the YouTube channel...but I'm still playing around with it. As far as the wasn't terrible. A couple items were good, but the tattoos were kinda WTF and the t-shirt was a letdown. After last month's crate and the hero crate (August, I think?) I guess I was expecting more. Still totally worth it, IMHO.
