the limbo of lunary souls..
a ghost.. a real ghost.. has no need to die.. what is he except a being without access to the universe that he has not yet managed to forget? <br > ~ randall jarrell

hey sally, glad you enjoy the lost & found & gumbyland :) the problem you mentioned with the bendys on card was due to the kind of rubber used on some of the original bendy toys, it reacted with the card & the plastic bubble covering the toy, often you find them warped wherever the toy touched it.. i was very lucky to find someone on ebay many years ago that had some pristine unreactive bendy toys out of an original box, i've referred others to him over the years, but it's been so long he probably has no more :( i'll look into it a bit more & see if i can locate him.. it's not such a strange question that you ask, another gumby fan who used to comment here, zaneloco, makes stop animation youtubes using old gumby toys & would relate.. i think you might try bottled acrylic to brighten up eyes & such, but i'll be honest with you i haven't tried it.. i don't know if it would adhere or react? i do know it helps to keep old gumbys in a dry place rather than bagged up air tight.. it's always good to hear from another gumby fan!

hey matt, those are part of my son's power ranger collection & we don't have any duplicates, so i'm afraid they're not for sale.. i've found that if you save a very specific ebay search & toggle on the notifications, you can often get the jump on items like this before anyone else sees them.. hope this helps, good luck!

perhaps the butterfly.. #infj #ThisIsLife @lisaling #MoreHarmThanGood #psychology #health #mentalhealth #benzos #suicide #nobutterfly #fuckbenzos #prescribedharm #benzosurvivor perhaps the butterfly is proof that you can go through a great deal of darkness yet still become something beautiful.. i saw this message on lisa ling's cnn special tonight on benzos.. my heart goes out to everybody touched by benzos & the over prescribing & irresponsible prescribing of this group of drugs, i went through this nightmare myself back in the 90s when i first told a dr i felt difficulty swallowing (a problem my son also inherited) & was told it was only anxiety & first put on xanax.. it didn't help at all, but i was on it for years & had to get myself back off of it without help of any kind, only to be put back onto it again when i tried to seek help from a psychologist instead.. years again, then the klonopin, also add into the mix stomach drugs like reglan, for YEARS.. i am only alive now because i'm irish & i am fucking badass.. the klonopin withdrawls were a nightmare.. to every so called 'professional' i sought help from who did not listen to what i thoughtfully explained to them ~ FUCK YOU! i'd be dead a dozen times over if i'd trusted them over my own experience & judgement. this makes me so angry, the people going through this now.. & yes i am ranting, this is a rantworthy topic.. to suddenly go from being treated like a highly intelligent person to just an anxious female & given these drugs over & over & over.. yeah, i am fucking angry.. thank you lisa ling for getting this out there for the public to hear.. https://friendlyghost.typepad.com/photos/a_mouthfull_of_razorblade/x-2.html https://friendlyghost.typepad.com/photos/a_mouthfull_of_razorblade/x-3.html https://friendlyghost.typepad.com/photos/a_mouthfull_of_razorblade/the-akathisia-black-hole-that-was-1995-all-brought-to-you-by-the-evil-stomach-drug-reglan.html https://friendlyghost.typepad.com/photos/a_mouthfull_of_razorblade/f-1.html https://friendlyghost.typepad.com/photos/a_mouthfull_of_razorblade/k.html http://brensgumbyland.com/doll%20medicine.html https://friendlyghost.typepad.com/photos/lost_hollow/raspberry-klonopin-swirl.html http://brensgumbyland.com/images/BFFs%20large.png https://friendlyghost.typepad.com/photos/lost_hollow/xxanaxx.html http://brensgumbyland.com/collidescope%20medicine%20chest.html motherfuckers.
