HAPPY 20th BIRTHDAY SONIC THE HEDGEHOG!


1:00 PM on 06.23.2011



Today is the 20th anniversary of my favorite ever hedgehog that is blue and runs fast and is in videogames and is called Sonic. I decided to celebrate this beautiful event by debuting my first ever stop-motion film, Snonic The Snedgehog. It is inspired by Sonic and it makes me cry.

In all seriousness, as much crap as I've given Sonic games, I genuinely love that little blue fella. Sonic 2 was the first game I ever got the first console that was properly mine (and my brother's), the Sega Genesis -- or Mega Drive, as it is known in the UK where I used to live. 

I still play Sonic the Hedgehog 2, to this day, and I will play it again today in celebration. SEGA and I are known to butt heads, but I earnestly want to thank the wankers for giving us twenty years of games that have ranged from utterly terrific to at least memorably bad. 

Much love. <3

This Altered Beast boss figure exists against all odds

Of all the videogame characters that could be turned into figures, this guy? Aggar? He's the first boss of the old Sega beat-'em-up Altered Beast and, okay, he's memorable as far as bosses in that game go -- I'll grant you th...more
