More Fun than a Planet Full of Action Figures

One of my new readers (ha! you're all new--it's a new blog!), named David, made a nice comment here about divorce rates and New Englanders. David, a fellow Boston-area blogger, has a cool site called Katie's Papa. Aside from the fact that Katie herself is adorable (check out the nameplate across the top), David has some really interesting links and observations about photography and the visual arts. In particular, I love the stuff about Dr. Harold Edgerton (whose work you will recognize, even if the name is unfamiliar).

I also had to LOL at his post entitled Jesus Christ, which is about--believe it or not--several different lines of Jesus action figures. David lists a couple of mail order sources, should you be so inclined as to collect the whole set.

I'm also pretty sure I've seen some of them at one of the most amazing stores in the annals of SFNE-dom: Planet, in Camden, Maine. I couldn't find a Planet website (if anyone knows of one, please let me know!), but it's a store filled with an amazingly eclectic and fun selection of goodies. I dare you to go there without buying something. Really. I double dare ya!

Wow, thanks for the plug! Glad you liked my site.

Since your Planet link lists the store as being at 10 Main St in Camden, I think this is their website. (...based on these Yahoo Yellow Pages results.) Unfortunately, there's virtually nothing on the website.

Still, it sounds like my kind of place. I'll have to check it out next time I'm in the area.

Yep, that looks like it must be Planet, but considering what a fun store it is, you'd think they could beef up their website. Like, um, include an address and phone number? And store hours? Would that be too much to ask? I'm all about the store hours!

Thanks for the info, David!
