Posted @withregram • @retrogimmick "What a horrible night to have a curse." I've seen a lot of cool Simon Belmont customs, but never him with his look from my personal favorite, Castlevania 2: Simon's Quest. This figure is one of a kind and it has a pretty good amount of original sculpting. It's up in my Etsy shop now. Link is in my bio!
In the process of preparing to move. Discovered some old photos that still bring me joy.
This a band I was in in the mid 90's in Salt Lake City called 7th Sight. Short lived but arguably one of the most productive groups I was in as a young man.

KLM Boeing 747-206B(SUD) registered PH-BUP and named "Ganges", seen at Amsterdam Schiphol in late 1991.
Aside from my weak framing of the shot 29 years ago, this photo shows the 747-300 type of stretched upper deck that KLM had added to ten of their late-build -200 series 747s in 1984-86. KLM was the only airline to buy this modification package, but found the extra carrying capacity and income earning potential worth the cost.

Today In 1992, Pantera Released Their 6th Album "Vulgar Display Of Power" Through Atco Records.
It Is The Band's 2nd Album Released Through A Major Label. The Band's 1990 Major Label Debut, "Cowboys From Hell", Demonstrated A Change In Their Musical Direction, From Their 1980s Material Influenced By Hard Rock Or Glam Metak Bands Like Van Halen & KISS To A New Similarity To Bands Like Slayer, Metallica & Black Sabbath.
In 1991, Pantera Returned To Pantego Sound Studio In Pantego, Texas To Record Their 2nd Release Under Atco, "Vulgar Display Of Power". The Album Was Produced By Terry Date, Who Specializes In The Rock & Metal Genres & Had Worked With The Band On "Cowboys From Hell".
