As I’ve slowly crawled my way back onto social media, I’ve kept a pretty low profile. Currently only utilizing Instagram and Twitter (along with my tfw2005 account) I have kept it simple, and as “toys only” as possible. Between the politically-charged spurts, and mentions of real-life struggles and triumphs, it’s easy to become distanced from how I’ve gotten to know, or would get to know, many online collectors – and this is my answer for that.

Another week, another show! I don't collect anything these guys talk about, but I find the show really entertaining, and it's one of the few podcasts that has held my attention continuously for more than a week or two.
