There is a lot of art on the walls of the building where I work. Sometimes when I’m looking for something to shoot I take photos of the art. Outside one of the bathrooms are two boxes and in one there are some bumblebees and in the other there are these weird ostriches. It is strange what is considered art and what gets purchased as art. We have this giant installation that was made from twist ties from sandwich bags. Bizarre.
Skylanders have become so hard to find. In every possible place they are sold out. When they do arrive in the stores they fly right off the shelves. Yesterday I stopped in at Walmart and saw that there were two Skylanders that we didn’t already have on the shelf. So I picked them up. Other people are picking them up as well and they are selling them for insane money on Amazon.com and Ebay. The figures are about $8 each. On Amazon they are going for $30. It is insane. I am sure that there will be a huge flood of them coming sometime soon and the opportunists will get stuck with their inventory.
MY friend Brendan tweeted me the other day that a blogger for Activision is giving away some three packs of Skylanders. You can enter to win just by liking his facebook page. You can find out more at One of Swords.
