TTDILA 2015 Gift Guide

Take a nice Dodger baseball bat and smash those other gift guides until there nothing but confetti to throw out when you present the items on this lists as presents. We at TTDILA have compiled our own Gift Guide. A guide to be praised and raved about. A guide for those who want to give gifts that matter and aren't cheap crap . This list is a list to help you get better presents in return for what you give. I mean why would you give? It's to get the ladies or the men.

First we recommend getting off your butt and actually looking, for if you live in LA you can go to Tweak, the greatest of gift stores. Parking might be impossible, yet you may be able to enter the stor after a walk. This store remains our top shop for "that" gift. There even open on Christmas (10-2pm), because they're insane or probably Jewish.

Tweak has a selection on par with the rest of our following guide and more. It's vast selection has something for everyone...even beating Wacko in selection of both oddities and useful presents.

The Fan

The following both come from ACME Archives, a wonderful store selling all things related to your favorite shows and films. Special edition prints, pins and tribute pieces await you when you look at their store. We're both fans of Aliens and Futurama, as such, how could we resist the two following items:

Planet Express Logo
limited edition pin
gold variant

This collectible trading pin features the Planet Express Logo from Futurama as a high quality cloisonne pin with a gold metal base and is limited to only 200 pieces in the edition.

A Friend to You

This artwork was originally created as part of Poster Posse's digital tribute to Alien's 35th Anniversary in 2014.

Adventure Time: The Enchiridion & Marcy’s Super Secret Scrapbook!!!
Oh, please, if you read the site you must have known we would be putting something Adventure Time related up. An almost perfect compendium of Adventure Time thinking from Martin Olson and his daughter, Olivia Olson (Marceline). For the fan of Adventure Time a great read that breaks down one of the most prized item from the show, The Enchiridion! Great artwork inside from Tony Millionaire to connect to the utterly so silly concepts of wizard getting and hot to kiss a princess.

Glen Brogan Art

Glen Brogan is a treasure as an artist who can make fun nad have fun with the fandome he goes after, because he's a fan of it too. He's newest work centers around Batman from two different galleries.

Gotham Afternoon
Limited Edition of 80
Batman (1966)

Love That Joker
Numbered edition of 50

"In Neo-San Francisco, a vibrant city of low life and high tech, you will witness the world’s first sapient robot learning to grow and live as you become embroiled in the darkest scandal of 2064"
We fell in love the too-honest Turing, your robot bud, as soon as he spoke and made jokes about how unhygienic our apartment was. This cyber-punk adventure is akin to Blade Runner though much lighter in tone. A good game to solve a mystery over time.
