HAPPY 20th BIRTHDAY SONIC THE HEDGEHOG!

Jun 23 // Jim Sterling
   @JimSterling

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
