Walmart's little fabric draw string holiday bags meant to hold gift cards make a perfect little Santa bag for decorating. In my case, for an 11" Turtle... Made him a little Santa hat several years ago, and the bag (stuffed) is a nice addition.

Your work? That's really good!



Random thought... When you are watching part of this "Legend of Frosty the Snowman" animated movie (not sure I've ever come across this before) and you just can't shake the feeling that deep down Frosty is Patrick Star... Like it's not quite the same tone, but there are some very similar vocal mannerisms, for lack of a better word, that stick out.

Looked it up... Yup. For some reason this just seems strange. lol

No real TMNT section thread to put this, so just gonna toss it in here. (Almost wish there was a general thread for just all the weird and funny TMNT images people might come across or already have saved. But then I'm afraid I might be the only one goofy enough to be using it. lol)


That said, I offer you...

When you're looking through screen shots online and you find an amusing odd one that's just begging for a caption... This may have to be used as some kind of reaction image one day. That's definitely an "I see what you did there" kind of look, or something along those lines.

My god the Black Fleet Crisis one of the worstseries of EU SW books...


it didn't need to be three books. could have been one decent one.

annoying characters. bad characterizations. odd side characters that didn't need to be in it. odd narrative choices in the second book...ugh.


re reading the eu to remind me of good star wars books and this wasn't one of them.

Anyone see the ad for the 2020 presidential race chess set? Can't decide if they're serious or if it's a joke played completely straight. Love Pelosi, McConnell and two others riding on the little donkeys and elephants.

Why did they name that virus from China the Coronavirus... I can't un-think the Kingdom of Corona from Tangled being the source when I hear the name.



Also, I'd still really like to know what is the disconnect with eBay listings out of Japan and the price value. They're always grotesquely expensive. Why??

Ran across a key ring, apparently a souvenir from The British Museum, listed for $39.58, plus $20 shipping! If only to be so rich that spending $60 on a little key ring seemed reasonable. lol Good god.

Definitely don't want to start a new thread about this, so I'll put this here in case anyone asks.

I think I might be done with The Technodrome forums.

It has nothing to do with you guys (y'all know I love ya) but I just can't bring myself to care anymore. There's been a few times where I write the first sentence of a post before thinking "ehhh, who gives a sh*t" and closing it.

I've always been more of a passive Dromer, anyways.

But yeah, I'm not gone just yet but if I disappear... refer to this post

Very relatable.

The combo of a sort-of lull in the new content area paired with this forum not getting any new blood/older members leaving has made for a bit of a stale environment.

But I will never leave. You pukes are stuck with me.

It’s named that way because under the microscope, the virus looks like a little sun, thanks to a ring of little petals that line the exterior.

The “petal” ring looks like the ring of the sun, what we call the corona.

Also, it's quite a lot of fun to change the lyrics of "My Sharona" to "My Corona", especially if you're at a barbecue.

Although it's not quite as much fun as changing the lyrics to "The Facts Of Life" theme song to "The Crack Ho Life". It actually makes MORE sense that way.

Ohh, very interesting. Knew the sun part but didn't know the virus was named for the look of it, thanks.

Glad to hear it.

Sometimes people just move on or have a phase where something they like goes to the background, good luck with your ventures Krutch, should you vanish from here one day.

This is something that has been on my mind for a few days now, mainly due to observations made over the past few weeks regarding the fires in Australia and elsewhere. The gist of it is this- our Mother is dying, she is screaming in pain and anguish, and we have all ignored her and turned deaf ears to her cries for far too long, to the point that she has finally called her other children- those of fur, feather, fin and scale- to deliver her message to us bodily. What I mean is that we have all seen the images, and heard the stories in the media, of WILD animals approaching random passing humans to beg for aid. Understand, these are creatures who have always been self-sufficient, and never needed us for ANYTHING, who are now seeking us out for food, water, even medical attention, either for themselves or to lead us to those too weak or injured to seek it themselves. And STILL we have missed the message they are sending us- that they need OUR help! That humans, whom they have always avoided as enemies, as dangerous predators or competitors who take away their homes, their food and water, even their lives. are now their only hope of survival.

Mother Earth has reached a point of desperation, sending us our animal brothers and sisters to speak for her, to say that we need to STOP our destructive ways. They are begging us to SAVE them- and ourselves, before it is truly too late. And while we collectively "awww", and murmur "so sad/sweet/cute" or whatever, e are still missing their message. They NEED us now. With fires and floods the world over, giant masses of plastic in our oceans and waterways, and untold destruction from pollution of those same waters, they are crying to us, bodily coming to us for help, and doing everything except to speak it out in our own tongues. I want the world to understand and to LISTEN. We need THEM as much as they now need US. But we need to change NOW. before the message- and our own Mother- is lost forever.

Seller on eBay is probably going to laugh if they notice my address is just the next town over in the same state.


2/4 -- Came out of Walmart and noticed in one of the parking spaces not far from me was a yellow spray painted spot. In the middle was the shape of two shoes, probably mens. lol What is the story here? Why did they need yellow shoes? Did they buy the shoes and paint there, after not finding yellow shoes on the shelf? Did they need yellow shoes that very same day and were then headed to whatever it was that required them? Hmmm...

I always snicker when I see a "news" headline about two grown adult celebrities who've decided to mash genitals. "BREAKING NEWS: __________ Is Dating __________!"

Not they're not. They're not "dating"; they're not 15 year old kids who are gonna go see a movie and split a sampler at Denny's after; they're f*cking. "________ Is F*cking _________." Maybe they'll go to dinner, but that's just practical, that's not what the arrangement is about. Nobody "dates" after high school; grown-ups audition potential f*ck buddies, they don't "date". Say what you mean, damn it.

It's just as silly as when old single people introduce someone as their "girlfriend", or "Lady friend" if they're really old. I know that "This is my friend Agnes, who I f*ck after bingo sometimes" is kind of a mouthful, but again, at least it's honest.
