There will be no recipe in this column, friends.

But I think I found something you’ll like this week. It’s called Loot Crate. It’s a subscription-based service that sends you a box of shit. But not just any shit; wonderful, nerdy goodness. Pop culture-themed products that readers of HoboTrashcan are bound to fall in love with.

If you aren’t sure if it’s your thing or not, you can go to their past crates and see what has been sent in previous months. Funko figurines, Marvel PEZ dispensers (food!), Star Wars, Comic Books, Doctor Who, South Park, zombies, cartoons, video games … it all seems amazing and its like a surprise nerd-splosion every month.

I have something similar, for health and beauty products, called Birch Box. Which is also nice, if you like soft skin and good smelling hair. They have it for men and women. But that one seems a little less relevant.

You don’t have to commit, you can try Loot Crate out for one month or you can sign up for the three or six-month plans and save a little money. I actually haven’t signed up for it yet, but I’m planning to after I submit this column to Mr. Manager here at the Hobo Trashcan offices. This column was not sponsored by them, I’m not getting paid to tell you guys this, I just think it’s a cool offer and you should all know about it.

Go cray, fellow nerds, geeks and gamers! Go cray.
