Halloween 2008 Snacks!

Hey there, folks — it’s been forever! I’ll dispense with the excuses, but hopefully we’ll have more content for you before another month goes by. And if you find the wait in between updates to be too unbearable, here’s a reminder to stop by Random Action Hour. Ragey and Galvatron’s prolific updates put some news outlets to shame.

Okay, on to today’s update. First we’ve got A Crayon Haiku #83, which features my Alex custom figure at a very early stage. I’ve come quite a ways with the painting since I took this picture, but — since I’m very slow — there’s still much work to be done. Whenever I take more pictures and/or actually finish the thing (remember, Mallah’s been in WIP status for the last eight months), expect Alex to appear in another haiku or featurette somewhere on the site.

The main draw for this update, however, is our belated Halloween 2008 Snacks review. There’s not a ton of items reviewed in here, really — just reviews of two gummi snacks, Halloween-themed Oreo cookies, and a bonus non-food review of a Halloween Domo-kun plushie — but still. If nothing else, the Bacardi cameo makes the article worth a look. 🙂

Aaand that’s it for this update, then! Until next time…

  • Better late then never. Especially with a website that always brings the fear, all year ’round.

    I was going to inject some Halloween into election day, by including Frankenstein as one of my joke-votes (my tradition is when there is a Republican running unopposed, I write in a joke vote).

    Unfortunately, there was only one unopposed Republican on the ballet in my town, this year so i only had one place to use a joke-vote and, with apologies to Frankenstein and Babar, I had to go with Ghengis Khan.

    Anyway, I just wanted to mention that I watched The Jetsons: the movie a couple nights ago. If you can track it down, I recommend it. The use of well-known characters, might make it sound mainstream, but make no mistake. it’s EN site gold!

    Actually, I could probably find the motivation to review it if you’re interested in such a guest article.

    Short, sweet, and to the point. Strunk and White would be proud. =) Plus, liked the boxing gloves he was sporting!!

    Tetsu: Ghengis Khan? Don’t you mean Genghis Frog?! 😉

    And yes, do feel free to write up a review of the Jetsons flick! I must have seen that during my childhood, though I don’t think it made much of an impression upon me because I only vaguely don’t at all remember what happened in it (this Wikipedia synopsis sounds completely alien to me). The Jetsons Meet the Flintstones, however, I remember quite well.

    Mick: We aim to please! And yes, Alex must have his boxing gloves — without them, he’d just be another raptor. 🙂
