Predator- Xenomorph Aside

The Alien franchise crossing over with the Yautja brought a great deal more than the individual creatures and battles.

Beach Boys Christmas

On December first my sister and I gave our Mother her Christmas present, the Beach Boys Reason for the Season Christmas concert in Morristown at MPAC.  My daughter and two nieces came too. Basically it was a girls' night out, plus me.  The younger kids probably knew the Beach Boys from watching Full House, which is likely the only nice thing I’ve said about that series in my life.

2018 Holiday Parade Festivities

GooooooOOOOOOOOOooooOOOOOOOoOOOood Afternoon! It’s Anabelle here, back again at the Traditional Christmas Village. It seems like this year, we got some new residents. Although I’m not going to go off on that tangent right now. Anyway, it is that time of year again: the time for the “I Wish I Was In Jeff’s Village” Action Figure and Hess Truck Extravaganza!

Christmas Village 2018

A Writing American Hero
Here Comes Stan Lee Claus

I originally didn’t want to involve superheroes two years in a row for the annual Christmas carnage atop the frozen Norwegian wastes of Sluttbordet Plateau.  However, with the passing of Stan Lee, this is unquestionably the year a Marvel tribute is needed.

Cobra forces once again are perched atop the plateau.  “Weren’t they defeated by the Justice League?” I hear an outburst or readers cry.

Would you believe, a couple of readers?

Would you believe, it’s just one? (Hi, Mom!)

Yes, Cobra was defeated, but in the Mighty Marvel Manner, the Watcher asks:

“What if Marvel heroes and villains co-created by Stan Lee 
joined in the annual snow covered battle?”

Christmas Calculation!

Looks like a get an early Christmas present this year.  A day off!

For extra credit, my daughter's math class was tasked with writing a math based Christmas carol.

Most others wrote or typed out something short and basic, to a simple song.

She made a giant, multicolored page with images, and parodied a Rankin Bass storytelling number.

I have no idea where she gets it from.

Come back next time for the usual Action Figure based holiday fun.

Predator Post

The original Predator is showered with praise by fans of that sort of thing. 

And I think one of the big reasons that the sequels failed to live up to the expectations of the first for many that are not me, is that folks are a bit confused about what “that sort of thing” is.
