LEGO storage can be a tricky issue, which is why the innovative new BOX4BLOX has just come to the market.
What a great saying this is - "Out with the old and in with the new!"
With that in mind I thought you''d like to know that I've started updating my Everything E-Directory starting with the E-Patterns, E-Stitcheries, E-Doodles, and Digitized Embroidery page.
I can't promise how quickly I'll get the Everything E-Directory updated but I'm working on it.

Faulty sex toys sold at a shop in Barnstaple are being recalled by the manufacturer. Customers who bought the Ultimate O Vibrator from Ann Summers in Green Lanes are being asked to return the sex toy.
While we have not seen PLANES yet, one of the coolest characters in the film is clearly Hector Vector. And of course, the Disney Store is already to go (he is NOT on any Mattel list). John H. sends along great photos and has done all the scale math for us all. First he is [...]
I had my eyes peeled for the perfect vintage trophy that we could customize this year, and wowee did we luck out! This little knight was a chess trophy – and guess who’s baby daddy likes chess? It had a brass label attached to the marble in the front, but that was easily removed with [...]

Here’s A Buttload of New Pokemon X & Y Info Along With A New Trailer
The Pokemon Company International just released a heap of new images and info about the latest upcoming Pokemon installment including some new monsters, a gang of friends that the protagonist will set out on their journey with (and exclusive friends depending on whether you play as a girl or a boy!), and an official worldwide release date of October 12!
Video below. Full press release chock-full of details after the jump.
POKÉMON GIVES FURTHER PEEK INSIDE THE KALOS REGION
AND ANNOUNCES FIRST GYM LEADER OF POKÉMON X AND POKÉMON Y
New Friends, Gym Leader, Towns, and Never-Before-Seen Pokémon Revealed
BELLEVUE, WA—June 14, 2013—After a flurry of Pokémon activity this week at E3, the Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles, The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo announced even more details this morning about the Pokémon X and Pokémon Y video games, launching worldwide October 12, 2013, for the Nintendo 3DS system. The games’ newly discovered Kalos region will feature many towns to explore, people to meet, and never-before-seen Pokémon to encounter. Players will also meet new Gym Leaders to challenge and collect Gym Badges from as they travel throughout Kalos. Many specific details are being shared for the first time today.
Welcome to Vaniville Town
Once a player has chosen to play as a male or female Trainer, Pokémon X and Pokémon Y begins in Vaniville Town. Step outside the house you just moved to and soon meet four new friends that will embark on a journey around the Kalos region with you. These four friends—Shauna, Tierno,Trevor, and Serena (if you play as a boy) or Calem (if you play as a girl)—are unique individuals:
· Shauna is an incredibly energetic girl who is coming along on the journey to find a dream of her own. She’s friendly and outgoing, and seems to genuinely enjoy all the curiosities you’ll come across on your journey.
· Tierno is the dancer of the group and wants more than anything to create a dance team with his Pokémon. Strong, kind, and light on his feet, Tierno gets easily distracted by watching opposing Pokémon during battles because he’s too busy trying to incorporate Pokémon moves into his dances.
· Trevor bursts with curiosity about the world around him. He’s an excellent student, and very competitive, wanting to be the first of the group to complete his Pokédex.
· Serena or Calem lives next door to you in Vaniville Town. This character has a passion to become a powerful Pokémon Trainer and sets out on the journey to accomplish that dream.
Meet Santalune City Gym Leader Viola
The first Gym Leader players will encounter on their adventure is Viola, the Gym Leader of Santalune City, a pleasant city that is known for its large fountain and park benches. Players will learn about Viola by first meeting her older sister, Alexa, a journalist working for a publishing house in Lumiose City. Alexa insists that her sister will be happy to meet players visiting Santalune City. A professional photographer who specializes in Pokémon photography, Viola presides over the Santalune City Gym, whose interior is constructed from threads like spiderwebs, strung together tightly above the darkness. Players will need to find a safe path through these threads, and will receive useful advice from Viola when they battle her.
More never-before-seen Pokémon that players will encounter in the Kalos region have been announced this morning. You can check them out in battle at the official Pokémon YouTube page.
· Litleo is a young, hot-blooded Pokémon that is always ready for a battle. A Fire- and Normal-type Pokémon, Litleo’s red mane blazes with heat during battle, which burns hotter when it battles very strong opponents. Litleo knows a new Normal-type move in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, Noble Roar. Useful against strong opponents, Noble Roar intimidates targets and lowers their Attack stat.
· Debuting as a Fairy-type Pokémon along with Sylveon, Flabébé lives atop a flower that it chooses soon after it’s born and will care for its entire life. Players may see different Flabébé holding flowers of different colors when encountering them in the wild. Flabébé is able to draw forth hidden powers that lie within its flower and use those powers in moves while battling. Flabébé knows Fairy Wind, a Fairy-type move debuting inPokémon X and Pokémon Y that summons a wind that blasts an opponent as it attacks. Like all Fairy-type moves, it’s super effective against Dragon-type Pokémon.
· As Pokémon evolve, they take on new appearances and learn new moves. Pokémon X and Pokémon Y will introduce the Bug-type PokémonScatterbug. Scatterbug knows String Shot, a Bug-type move that can lower the Speed stat of opposing Pokémon. Scatterbug evolves intoSpewpa, another new Bug-type Pokémon that can withstand half-hearted attacks due to its stiff, fur-covered body. Use the Normal-type move Protect at a beginning of a turn to protect Spewpa from moves used against it on that turn. The final evolved form of Scatterbug, which was revealed earlier this week, is the new Bug- and Flying-type Pokémon Vivillon. It’s said there’s a secret behind the colorful decorative pattern on Vivillon’s wings, which it uses to scatter its scales or create a strong wind to attack. Vivillon can learn Struggle Bug, a Bug-type move that lowers the Special Attack of any opposing Pokémon it hits, so the move not only causes damage but also reduces the damage inflicted on Vivillon from certain moves during battle.

I have to say while a bit of a retread of the Weeping Angels, I’m a big fan of the Silence.They are just creepy enough to stick with you. Once again I let Mrs. Nerd pick a Doctor Who Titans box and it paid off. She has an uncanny knack for this blind packed stuff. [...]
Anamanaguchi Playing Late Night With Jimmy Fallon Monday, June 17
Chiptune darlings Anamanaguchi will inch the chip music scene a bit closer to the mainstream radar when they bring their 8-bit-infused rock and roll sounds to the Late Night stage. Set your DVRs.
I first heard of these guys maybe six or seven years ago and it’s insane to see how far they’ve come. After lending their sounds to a few video game soundtracks, playing PAX a few years back, and then having Disney steal one of their songs for a mobile game, it’s awesome to watch these dudes get bigger and better year after year.
