Okay… two points right off the bat.  I have always been drawn to interesting, unusual people, businesses and ways of thinking.  I enjoy reading business blogs that offer interesting, out-of-the-box content that gives me a glimpse into who the owner’s are as well as what the company has to offer.  The occasional “what I did on my summer vacation” post is a great way to introduce some whimsical content in with the business to business postings.

With that said, I am going to revisit a thread that I had originally started back in February of 2008, the “Shelf Chronicles”.  I have always enjoyed watching bonus feature material on any dvd from Pixar Studios as it typically shows employees working in there impossibly cool studios surrounded by all manner of interesting, weird, out-of-the-ordinary toys, decorations etc.  I have a corner in my office which is devoted to my “muses” as I call them.  They are a collection of things that have special meanings for me;  from toys of my childhood to action figures and statues from tv shows, anime and movies that I have enjoyed over the years.

This particular thread on my blog will be a way for me to introduce them to you and give you the opportunity to get to know the “geekier” side of Shadowbend Studios (whether or not that is a good idea, we’ll soon find out!!).  Those of you who may have read my pseudo-bio on the company information page on my website will know that I am no stranger to quirky, odd ramblings 🙂

So, on to the first introductions…. perhaps we should begin with one of the more unique members of my extended family;  Tybo the Carrot Man from “Lost In Space”.  He was one of the first of my collection and always gets a double take from visitors.

Tybo is the main alien character from the Lost In Space episode “The Great Vegetable Rebellion”.  For those of you are in the mood, you can view the entire episode on Hulu by following this link.  Enjoy! 🙂
