CBlogs of 04.07.08

Hey everyone! I'm excited to be helping out with the CBlog recaps. Doing something on this scale really gives a sense of accomplishment when you finish it and I'm glad that ceark was willing to trust me with his grand enterprise. And maybe this way he'll get Rio's painting finished so he can start working on mine.

Anyway, no rant or anything today, just a hell of a lot of blog posts. Enjoy!

*- Explanation as to why I'm not ceark (not including all the awesome he has unrelated to CBlog recaps)
*- A bit ironic, but it needs to be said
*- This is what you do in Mexico, people
*- Epic drawing of Hamza makes me think he may be compensating
*- That's a lot of peenoo (dvddesign's Japan blog series)
*- Hoygeit reminds me that I should play more Sam & Max with this sweet bit of fanart
*- I know these picks keep winding up being art, but I can't help that you guys are so fucking epic
*- Admittedly, I'm a Star Trek geek, but this game idea is gold
