Pop Vinyl: The Dark Side of Pop Culture

It’s time to talk about a dark side of fandom and collecting–Funko’s Pop Vinyl. They’re cute little vinyl dolls you see in any major store (and now they are even EXCLUSIVE, depending on the store) and feature some of pop culture’s darlings. They also have subscription boxes and exclusive tie-ins with products.

One of the first Pop Vinyls I ever saw was this one:

Most of my friends know how much I journal, and how much I adore the Moleskine format of journal. I have a lot of them, from a Mickey Mouse to the Simpsons, from Star Wars to the Hobbit—they’re wonderful to write on and even better to keep around. I have planners and always look forward to next years ‘engagement only’ planner (I have a separate planner for business stuff).

I got an email first thing this morning,
