Merry Christmas!

I (Tets), Jack, Starscream, Transformers mini-Satan (an anagram of Santa no less…) and Santa of course would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!


Thanks for reading and I hope to add more as the years go on!




Jack better watch out! Looks like Starscream is making a move for the present!

Tree interpretations.


Over the past few months that are encompassed within the realm of “Christmas,”  I have noticed and interesting trend in the old Christmas Tree.


Today, being Christmas eve, I thought I would share the ones that I was most impressed with.

Blowing my own trumpet

Well actually having it blown for me.

 I was pleased to recieve a Zombie Rabbit Award from a fellow blogger.   eerieeriksreviews kindly gave me one. (More about the Zombie Rabbit Award here) and it was nice to recieve it from a fellow blogger.

I will admit, despite not originally having much interest in beer and horror movies, I do find the blog most amusingly written and an enjoyable read, so 'twas a good feeling indeed.

I would have never known about beer brewed from pumpkins.  Who woulda thunk it!

Cheers Drunketh, much appreciated!  To recieve a bit of recognition for having fun can't really go bad hey?

Chrazy Christmas Decorations.

So, I have been a bit quieter this Christmas compared to the last.  Obviously the horror of the Advent Calender chocolate has slowed me down.

Oh and work has been crazy as well.

Today though I would like to add some strange Xmas trinkets I spied whilst wandering the shops. Most of these are various baubles for hanging on the old Chrimbo tree, what struck me as odd was that not many of them had a Christmas feel to them…

Clever Cup cakes

So, it’s Christmas time and bad food is being eaten all over the place.  On a personal note, I have been puzzled by the rather sudden rise in the popularity of cup cakes that has taken the world, well Australia at the very least, by storm.


Why?  They just seem to be a standard sponge base of either vanilla or chocolate with a sickening amount of icing on the top (Personally I prefer butter icing over plastic icing).  I have seen a few come through work as there has been many made for home Christmas parties and not consumed.


One such episode happened today in fact.  I was however impressed with the look of these cup cakes.



Looks a bit like a frog, but think of the blue, and oh is that a cookie?  Waitasecond…




From the right angle, they looks remarkably like Sesame Street’s Cookie Monster! 


Despite my curiosity and slight dislike for cupcakes (more of a muffin guy myself), I take my hat off to my workmate who cooked these little blighters up!


Well done and bravo!

Sleek & Slippery–Animated Oilslick


Oilslick from the Animated Cartoon only featured in one episode, but we managed to get a toy of him.  Omega Supreme was a major player in quite a few episodes and he is not available.  Odd.  Oilslick though is a very nice little figure, and the character has a lot of potential.  Again, another bit of evidence that shows Animated finished before it’s time.

Holiday Central. The main List of where.

This is the post that links my admittedly slow attempt at blogging my Wildflower holiday.  Originally I meant to do it ON the holiday, but slow USB modems, the country and lack of coverage, as well as many late nights and need for sleep foiled that idea.

The whole holiday from day 1 to end covered a large amount of the state.

Now THAT is a Collector’s Edition

Sonic Generations.

I was hoping there would be a special edition of Sonic Generations.  It is for Sonics 20th Birthday, so I expected something great.  Especially considering how they actually did a nice little version for the 10th Anniversary with Sonic Adventure 2, and that was the times when extra additions were rare!  However, I was worried, as until say two months or so before release, my googling of ‘special edition sonic generations’ only provided me with information about the game coming with some free DLC.  Well, that doesn’t make a special edition in my books.

So I was pleased as punch when I saw this baby pop up on the SEGA blog!  And it’s a beauty too!
