TSJA Drinking Game (content pages)

The Sarah Jane Adventures Drinking Game!


Thirty years after her stint with the Doctor, Sarah Jane Smith returns in "The Sarah Jane Adventures"! And to make an enjoyable program even more fun, we've created a drinking game you can play while you watch.  (4/11/08)

The Sarah Jane Adventures Drinking Game!

Hey all! I'm a bit late with tonight's feature -- the show's already started on the East Coast -- but hopefully you folks out West will have time to check out the rules and drink along to "The Sarah Jane Adventures", premiering tonight at 7:30 PM on Sci Fi. And this is also the debut of my friend Mickey of Strange Cousin Susan as a contributor to the site, so do welcome her! I've been eager to have her write for us for some time -- and few people love Sarah Jane Smith (and her boots) more -- so it was really fantastic to have her along for this piece. 🙂

The Sarah Jane Adventures

Anyway, if you miss that initial airing -- or, on the EC, want to check it out with the drinking game -- it'll be on again at 11:00 PM. After this week, TSJA will be airing at 8:00 PM on Fridays. So if you're at all interested in "Doctor Who" (which, starting next week, will begin airing directly after TSJA) or Sarah Jane (or just want to watch solely for the excuse to drink along 😉 ), be sure to check that out! If you're going to play our game, though, remember to drink responsibly and remain aware of your limits while doing so.

One more thing about the game -- don't be confused by the frequent mentions of Clyde in the rules, since he does not appear in the pilot episode airing tonight. Apparently test audiences found Kelsey to be as annoying as we did, so she was axed and replaced by the very likable Clyde. To make up for the sips missed in his absence, though, you're welcome to take a sip every time you find Kelsey grating on your soul. If you choose to do so, please remember our warnings. Scary-Crayon and Strange Cousin Susan are not responsible for any embarrassment and/or injury that result from participating in this activity. 😛

ALSO! For Sarah Jane fans with access to the classic "Doctor Who" episodes, you might want to give The Sarah Jane Smith Drinking Game at The Sarah Jane Smith Wardrobe Appreciation Society a try. I haven't played, so I can't vouch for it -- but considering how incompetent Sarah Jane could be in the older episodes (I still liked her, but give me Leela, Romana, or Ace any day), I suspect that you'd be sipping an awful lot.

Until next time, minna-san! :mrgreen:

Discounted King Kong figures Part 1 (content pages)

The 8th wonder of the world!


King Kong returns to Scary-Crayon -- this time in the first of a two-part Kong figure review! Here, we look at three of the 6" Kongs as well as the 11" Roaring Kong. Don't be fooled: some Kongs are better than others!  (4/7/08)

A Crayon Haiku #76! (content pages)

Jimmy Olsen: luckiest photographer in Metropolis?

A Crayon Haiku #76!

In A Crayon Haiku #76, Jimmy rightfully blasts Clark for rejecting Chloe on "Smallville". Sure, it's the Silver Age Jimmy Olsen figure and Clark hasn't actually become Superman on the show, but it's still a valid jab.  (4/7/08)

Discounted King Kong figures!

But first, another Crayon Haiku! Seriously, this is pretty much the only reason I went for this Jimmy Olsen -- if I can't have a Chloe figure, I'll at least have someone to rag on Clark for letting Chloe get away. I mean, Superman losing to Jimmy Olsen is way worse than losing to Brainiac or Lex Luthor, especially when it's entirely his fault! Pathetic.


And now, what I really meant to post last week but have just now finished: the first part of a King Kong action figure review! Playmates released a whole line of Kong figures in conjunction with Peter Jackson's remake back in 2005, but it's 2008 and most of these Kongs are still sitting on the shelves in KB Toys locations across America. In this installment, I look at three of the 6" Kongs as well as the larger 11" Roaring Kong figure. Next time, we'll look at two more of the smaller figures and the 15" deluxe Kong from Mezco. Sure, Kong's no longer exactly current -- not that he has to be for a Scary-Crayon review, but still 😉 -- but these figures weren't worth the original prices anyway. Discounted, however, they are awesome.

I'd like to say that the second part of this review will be up soon, but who knows considering that I still haven't finished the Quick Change Dinobot piece! That said, whereas the QC Dinobots have all but disappeared since the 2007 winter holidays, not even Christmas (or the previous Christmas, for that matter) managed to dwindle the Kong armies manning the pegs at KB. I'm confident that you'll have your chance to make an informed decision before they disappear altogether. 🙂

APRIL FOOL’S DAY 2008!!! (content pages)

More fun with Bacardi!


Yeah, we missed April Fool's Day last year, but we did get a quick commemorative gag off for 2008 -- our pal Bacardi eating to a fun banjo tune! If you haven't seen it (or want to check it out again!), you know where to click.  (4/1/08)

Hope y'all enjoyed today's prank! Or, if you missed it because you came directly to the blog or are a day late, you can check it out here. At first I was planning to do a mock layout littered with Daleks and entitled Skaro-Crayon, but then it completely slipped my mind and I found myself with nada as of Monday morning. But then, as I finished up a late night photo shoot for the next article, I came upstairs and found Bacardi happily chomping away and decided to film him enjoying his breakfast. Cartoon lightbulbs flared, resulting in today's quick April Fool's Day gag. :mrgreen:

Also, we skipped last year, but feel free to check out our April Fool's Day pieces for 2005 and 2006. This year's is definitely less involved, but I think it wins out in terms of cuteness.

If all goes according to plan, I'll have that article (the first part of a two-parter -- one that I hope to actually finish in a timely fashion!) ready sometime this week. Until then, minna-san! 🙂
