Here’s Kim Carnes with the video to the #1 song of 1981 “Bette Davis Eyes.”

Here are the classic Terminator Endoskeleton and Reese 3.75in. ReAction action figures, part of the line of nostalgic 80’s and 90’s figures from television and film including Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Rocketeer, Predator, and more. Available beginning in April, you can pre-order them for the low, low price of $10 each.



What’s a guy to do when he wants a set of action figures from old Activision classics like Pitfall! and Keystone Kapers? Make your own out of old G.I. JOE figures. Very cool, and I love the packaging.

It’s been 17 years since Mazzy Star released an album, and for those of us that used to rely on a Mazzy Star/Portishead playlist to seal the deal it’s been a long, long drought. Now, not only is the reclusive duo set to release Seasons of Your Day, they’re also gearing up for a live tour. Get your oh, so moody mood on by listening to the whole amazing album, but I will personally clock the first fool to bust out a puka shell necklace or Yagi shorts.
