Hit a couple of thrift stores today, noticed that they all had earlier model dSLRs for relatively little. I'm curious about doing time lapse photo sets of the visible night sky in a light pollution-ary city (and maybe try some stop motion again). Any suggestions on which older makes/models/lines might be suitable or could be good finds to keep an eye out for? [more inside]
I was going to buy an IKEA bookcase, but I looked at the instruction manuals for all the ones I'd like to get and they all have a thin, fake-wood back instead of a real wood back. I think this looks a bit corny, and I've seen thin backs get absolutely destroyed. Target's bookcases aren't any better. I'll buy a bookcase like this if I have to, but - are there any places that sell relatively inexpensive bookcases with actual wooden backs?

Smallest child is being outright bribed into potty training, and the ultimate prize she now wants is a Furby. She has been asking for a robot of her own for a while and if it gets her out of diapers, we're thrilled. The online reviews are all super positive but don't cover my main questions, especially is there an alternative animatronic doll under $100 for a child? [more inside]

My car is about to be paid off and I'm planning to drive it into the ground before shopping for another one. And let's be honest, my next car is going to be what I can get the best deal on.

I found this photo of two mysterious Adventure Time figures on tumblr, and can't find it again. Are these figures something that I can buy, or some custom job or Photoshop? I don't think they are Dunnys or Munnys, and I've looked at many, many "designer vinyl" sites.
