HAPPY NEW YEAR !!!!
I want to wish a Happy New Year to all of my loyal visitors who have been so surportive in 2000. I never expected to get so many visitors so fast!!! And such kind and wonderfull e-mails about my work. And who would have thought that Rebelscum would invite me to join their team? I can tell you for sure that 2001 will be filled with even more creative dioramas. I just hope that I can live up to all your expectations. I even have some new sections planed and a few more surprises behind my sleeves. heh heh.
As for my fellow Canadians, Let us pray that 2001 will finally give us some new action figures. We've been desperately waiting since Captain Tarpals !!!!

Vacations are over :( - Niubniub back up to speed
Yes, It's terrible, Today I have to go back to work like the rest of you all. It's unbelievable how fast 10 days pass by. Especially when you play Banjo Tooie and watch DVD's all day long. Oh and a ski holiday doesn't help either - ha ha. So no more slacking, I have much catching up to do :) And for the curious I have finished Zelda majora's Mask. it was a cool game. If you got a N64 for Xmas you should give it a try.
New year - New Change - well small change - LOL
I have so many cool things I want to make for you guys this year. I think I will make a lot of collectors happy. But that is still a little down the road. To mark the New Year I made a small change. Can you tell me what it is? hee hee. I think this one is less tricky then finding the secret page - LOL

DVD Reviews are back
Many of you have told me you got DVD players as a gift during the hollidays (even some lucky playstation 2's) and were asking me if I would give tips as to what movies are good buys. So I have decided to put back my DVD Catalog and Reviews in the Home Cinema Section. I will try and add reviews on a regular basis. I have a lot of catching up to do. My first reviews are Titan AE a movie I think most of you will really like and the classic Planet Of The Apes. If you have a DVD you would like me to comment on just send me an e-mail. Perhaps it is a title that others are interested in also.
