The Greatest Christmas Present Ever

I got my Mighty Men & Monster Maker for Christmas in 1983, and it's all been downhill from there.



The Mighty Men & Monster Maker was a toy manufactured by Tomy in 1976 and given to me (or perhaps my older brother?) as a Christmas gift in like 1983 or 1984.  Just look at it.  Take it all in.  This is possibly the greatest present ever given to a young boy as a Christmas present.  You can just make all the freaking monsters you want!  It's amazing!

Is This Emily Dickinson?

This photograph, taken in the 1850s, may be only the second known image of the reclusive American poet.
