A day by day and often hourly account of a temp

For those of you that know me, I make action figures for people of themselves on their birthday. For those of you that don't know me, I make action figures for people of themselves on their birthday. I used to work at a bar called the Last Exit and it started out as just gifts for the bartenders there. The I expanded onto the "Customer Collection". Tonight is the birthday party of a friend who happens to work at a "rival bar" across the street called Magnetic Fields. They have already called a truce, but the whole thing is pretty funny. So I thought, why not make an action figure for this guy and call it the "Villain Series"?

And it was so. I don't have a picture of the doll I fashioned to look like this guy, but today I made the information about the doll on the back. There's a lot of inside jokes. But then again, most of the people reading this blog are my friends anyway.

"Meet The Villains!

Many years ago, in the Way Way Before time, there existed but one bar. The Last Exit. But with further destruction by Lord Gentrification, other rivals popped up with great force, similar to an uncontrollable virus. Most were destroyed by the Last Exit Avengers. But much like a hydra, it seemed the sooner one was cut off, others regenerated.

One of them would afterward be known as The Magnetic Fields. No, not like in the band. Like in the electromagnetic field that exerts force on a moving charge. And moving charge they did.

Later, unbeknownst to both establishments, they would ban forces against the greatest threat of all, the Atlantic Avenue Betterment Association. But until then, battles were constant and often bloody.

Other action figures in the VILLAIN COLLECTION!™ are:

Dossier: A shapeshifter, Devon uses her powers to turn into other bartenders to lure potential customers to her bar. She is most notorious for tricking people by looking like Karaoke Katharine, and inviting them to her “Devon Dale”.

Dossier: Once known as mortal “William Crane”, a freak accident in a bakery left scars of various confections on his body which he passes off as “tattoos”. When angered, the donut burns red hot, causing the DONUTTER to fight with uncontrollable rage.

The most elusive of all Villains, Phototron is neither human nor Super. Phototron was created by evil Dr. Booth to capture souls with every click of it’s deadly camera. In the shape of a friendly “Face Place”, the monster even has an elusive MySpace profile, whose author no one knows the true identity of. Phototron’s powers can cause confusion and lack of judgment to those who encounter the mechanical beast."
