Occasionally I get a question along the lines of "Why are you -- a 42-year-old man -- constantly taking pictures of toys?" Well, first, I'm only 42 for six more days. Second, allow me to enlighten you.

This is the last cassette Walkman I ever owned. It is the Sony Sport WM-SXF10.
A week or so ago, Katie bought me a little poly bag Star Wars LEGO set for my desk at work. It's a tiny little thing, which is ideal given my small workspace, but it's really cool.

Check me out! I'm actually a couple days ahead of schedule for my March video.
This is another one of those Throwback Thursdays that's not an old photo so much as a new photo of an old object.
