TSS Wants Your Sonic Holiday Cheer!

sonic2-thumbIt’s December 1st and that means that the 25 days of Christmas has begun.  As usual, we here at TSS will be providing all sorts of Sonic-related holiday features throughout the month, but we also want to showcase the creations of our visitors.

If you build a Sonic snowman, draw some Sonic Christmas art, bake some Sonic cookies, or hang some Sonic ornaments on your Sonic Christmas tree, we want you to take some pictures and send them to us!  Pending on the amount of content that we get from you, our readers, we will be regularly featuring your holiday spirit!  Of course, Chanukah, Kwanzaa, and other holiday items are welcome as well!

Send us all of your Sonic holiday creations by using the e-mail address provided at right (thesonicstadium AT gmail DOT com), which is where you can also send us news tips and community stories for us to publish.

Many thanks and let’s have a great December, guys!

Turning Japanese…

vending-japanHey guys, this will be my last update in quite a while – I’m off to Japan to enjoy the sights of Tokyo and Kyoto for two weeks! The last time I went to the land of the rising sun, I covered the Tokyo Game Show (in 2007) as well, which was awesome buy kind of rushed the rest of my time there (which was my actual holiday).

But who will look after the coop while I’m gone? Well, T-Bird’s going with me, so he won’t be here either, but Shadzter, Bolt and Brad will still be on call to cover Sonic happenings. Overseeing the whole site will be our Guest Editor, Paul Street. You might have met him if you went to Summer of Sonic last year, and also writes some excellent stuff for TSSZ News too. Give him a warm welcome – no doubt he will write a few update columns in my place if he fancies getting to know you all.

I’m due to leave the house tonight, and my plane will leave tomorrow afternoon. Wish me a good 12-hour flight (well, at least it’s better than 14 hours with a connecting flight – never doing that again). In my last day of ‘not-really-here-but-rather-packing-and-leaving-the-computer-to-do-stuff’, I’m uploading the last missing pieces of Soundtracks to the Media Portal. I’ve also created a few new pages to the Music archive on the website, so you can look at Sonic Boom, Sonic the Fighters and a few others now.

So it’s off to Nippon I go – land of vending machines, noodles, Super Potato (!) and Bubble Man drinks. Although we probably won’t dress as a vending machine like the chap in the picture, there. See you guys in two weeks!
