How's everybody doing? I'd like to talk about the subscription service, "Loot Crate".
For about a year now I've heard of them, seeing their posts on facebook and whatnot, so after a while I got curious.
I wanted to check it out, but before I went for it, I had to make sure it was legit. So I looked up reviews and all that good stuff, and nothing struck me as a red flag, and so I decided to give it a shot.

For those who don't know of it, Loot Crate is a monthly subscription service that sends you various pop culture items pertaining to a monthly theme. It's about $20 for a monthly subscription, but they also have a 3 month and I want to say 6 month subscription as well.
Well anyway, I decided to give it a shot, and near the end of the month I have received my first crate......and I'm a little underwhelmed.

I got quite a bit of stuff, no doubt there, but the vast majority of items are basically things I wouldn't really care to buy myself.
Here's what I got:  a Ghostbusters doorknob sign, a Captain America air freshener, a Simpson's wallet that would seem cool, but it looks a bit impractical to me, Tetris stickers, a Batman Comic and exclusive Batman POP! Vinyl figure, and......Guardians of the Galaxy socks.

Now, the Batman comic and figure, those are quite bad ass, and the Tetris stickers are fairly interesting, but nothing I would actually use.
The thing about the socks for me, well every advertisement I see for Loot Crate, they talk about having a shirt in every order. After watching the Guardians of the Galaxy this year, I have to say it has become one of my favorite movies this year, and I would have loved a shirt by them, but.....socks.

I don't want to sound bitchy or picky about it, but cartoony socks just don't appeal to me. Honestly, they look more like women's socks if I'm to be honest.
Don't get me wrong, I don't expect them to put out a bunch of high priced random trinkets to every consumer, but how they advertised this month's theme (it was anniversary's in case you're wondering), I expected something a little more substantial than a door hangar, stickers and......socks.

So my verdict for Loot Crate as of right now, I'll have to give it a pass.
I think I might keep my subscription going for just one more month, though, just to see what I may get next. Basically like a one more shot type of thing

After reading some less than desirable comments on an older image I did of Marge in this pose, I took it upon myself to fix it up!
By the way that IS a strawberry, and it is quite large.....I'm going to chalk it up to high levels of radiation in Spingfield's soil, and that's why strawberries are so big.....yep!

just to let you know, this screen cap is circling the internet.  You have been caught.  Good thing for you that Slug does not care about people that steal his art.
