- the functional stuff -
Closet converted to storage area for old document, tax and business information, carrying cases for laptops and gear, software and hardware manuals, blank notebooks and sketchbooks, empty folders and binders, media archives and some extraneous cables and peripherals.
- the fun stuff -
That blown-out glow under the Kiss Rock And Roll Over clock (it rotates!) is a small lamp that sits on top of an insanely heavy Sapien shelf (14 shelves) which holds a variety of toys - Sideshow Toys Little Big Heads (black and white versions), Homestar Runner figures, three die cast Batmobiles, Ren and Stimpy with magnetic butts, a random Micronaut, ED-209 from Robocop, wind-up Wolverine, Captain America Pez dispenser, a couple other random little toys and an original model of a spaceship my brother made for me in the late 70's, sculpted from balsa wood with found model parts added. Classic black and white Universal Monsters photos are aligned above the closet, with an assortment of magnets (Kiss, Watchmen buttons and Universal Monsters stamps) stuck to the metal shelf. The shelves under the window hold Creatures of the Night monster busts, three scrap metal sculptures from the defunct metalart.org site (Predator,Alien and Boba Fett), and three banks - Wolverine, Spiderman and Batman. A small selection of art and design books sit on the bottom shelf.
