    G.I. Joe grunt.


    G.I Joe Grunt

    One the first things I collected as a child was G.I Joe Action figures… Dolls for boys.
    A lot of the kids in the neighbourhood also collected them, we played war together on the porches

    They took a lot of wear and tear… and when they fell apart we simply glued them back together.
    Back then, the most exiting thing is when G.I Joe action figures came out with “Swivel Arms”. collectors know the difference : “straight arm” Gi Joe and Swivel arm G.I Joe Action Figures…

    and now for something completely different.

    The term “grunt” is used in the military as a general term for someone who’s MOS (Military Occupational Specialty) is “Infantry”. In the Marine Corps all MOS’ preceeded by the number “03” are Infantry. About as “grunt” as you can get in the Corps is “0311 – Basic Rifleman”.
    As I was told, the term is a slang that comes from when a infantry soldier takes his pack off and takes a break for marching. WWII

    Beatles Yesterday and Today… Butcher cover.

    Yesterday and today

    Yesterday and today

    For old vinyl collectors like me, thus the story we heard… the Beatles were unhappy with the way American Capitol records was repackaging their albums by 1966… the beatles were already moving towards theme based whole albums such as the eclectic Rubber Soul, and the alienating mix on Revolver, Capitol was trying to keep up with the huge volume of singles and albums the beatles were making.
    When Capitol ask for an a cover photo for “Yesterday and today” the Butcher cover was the response…
    The rest is collector history.
