My Hero Academia

Los Angeles is community.  All the deep urban/suburban blocks from West Adams, Jefferson, Arlington Heights, Little Tokyo, Arts District, Highland Park, Eagle Rock, Culver City, Inglewood, Boyle Heights, Bunker Hill, DTLA, East LA, Vernon, West Hollywood, Larchmont, Beachwood Canyon, Los Feliz, Silverlake, Atwater Village, Echo Park, Glassell Park, Frog Town, Pacific Palisades, Malibu, Santa Monica, Venice, Culver City, Mid-City,

In case you hadn't heard the word is Hot Topic has a dedicated My Hero Academia packout!  Complete with an exclusive character (exclusive tool in very low numbers), and exclusive treatments, including C28, rare chase finds, collector cards, and other goodies!   How rare is rare?  Well, toy manufacturing is set up for mass production, what TLS does is the exact opposite, like dedicat

Ever seen one of those 80’s tour videos?  Usually accompanied by a ballad from the hair band of the day; life on the road, truck stops, loading in gear, setting up in big venues, sound checks, load out, backstage exhaustion, back in the van…the wear and tear of the road as you setup to play from city to city.  Journey “Faithfully”, Motley Crue “Home Sweet Home”, you know, the “tour video”!  As a kid I’m thinking, “That d

My Hero Academia, for those that don't know it is one of the best Anime, and Manga of its time.  Centered in a world which folks have super powers, surreptitiously a young boy named Izuku Midoriya, affectionately better known as “Deku” is born without super powers but finds a mentor in one of the most recognizable, and famous super hero contemporaries, “All Might”.  All Might

New York?  LA?  New York?  LA?  Back and forth like Taipei vs Hong Kong in a ping pong tournament.  Pros for New York – it’s one of the greatest cities on earth, with a great fan base, some of the greatest restaurants, it’s Fall when the leaves are changing, Central Park strolls, great hangs, meet ups, costumes, a ton of passion, a couple of my favorite restaurants, some good haunts, and some old friends to see

The Loyal Subjects, and hobbyDB team up!  Offering customers access to the TLS archives in the form of a unique database/marketplace that allows collectors and fans the ability to archive items, show off collections, buy, sell, and trade in a trusted space.

From Nashville to Tokyo.

First off, I have 100 blogs to write.  My last update was a shout-out to Predators making their way to the shelves at Walgreens.  It looks like folks are enjoying the Predator packouts.  I love this line, I say this about every line but of course they're all my babies.  I dare not cast any one line into the shallows, they are all precious, my precious (hint).  A ton has passed since the last update – plans, tra

This year marked the 5th annual Fan Jam.  An idea first presented by a friend of the Company, with the simple implication, “Let's do something special for folks who like, and support TLS”.  Great idea (I thought), a fan appreciation event but without the walls and borders between folks who like TLS and the folks who work at TLS…a “break down the velvet rope” style event in which we all mingle, chop it up, share

The Loyal Subjects was born from a letter to friends, and family, aptly titled “The Loyal Subjects”.  I was going through a transition; a failed attempt at a business, a musician, and a show creator.  I had creative juju but zero business sense.  A literal creative in the wholesome term – all things creative matter, everything else a distraction.  After my failed attempts, I received a divine moment of whiplash, the

I’ve explained this for years – Comic Con is like Halloween but in July.  It’s colorful, a celebration of (nearly all) things pop culture; folks are happy, engaged, invested, and whole heartedly adopt the suspension of disbelief for the better part of a week as (most do) dive in head first into the “Let your freak flag fly” mantra.
