HAPPY NEW YEAR CRAZIES!!!  Going with a short post today.  I'm sure we all got a lot of things to do before the big day hits.  To briefly summarize though, 2018 was definitely a marked improvement for me.  Got a lot accomplished but still feel like I could've gotten more done.  Among the big goals I have planned for the coming year is to get myself back into shape.  I'd like to take a few trips outside of the usual Anaheim and Long Beach stops as well.  I also hope to FINALLY get the second Bubble Fox book done while also possibly putting out an art book for cons and such.  And as the above art likely suggests, I'm also hoping to get Peppertown back up and running at some point in the New Year.  I have a lotta plans and a lotta energy.  Just need the time and resources really.

I'm excited for the coming year folks and I hope y'all are too.  There's a lot to look forward to and I hope y'all will hop along for the ride.  So for the last time in 2018, thank you all so much for the support and kindness.  Take care and I'll catch y'all in 2019!

Merry Christmas CRAZIES!!!  I know, I know, Christmas is still six days away, but by the time the next post hits, Christmas will be over!  I mean, I could do a Boxing Day post, but most folks stateside don't really know about that one, so we're celebrating now!  I'm sure we can all agree that an early Christmas celebration is better than a late one, right?  Good!  So let's dive in because we all got parties and festivities to go check out!  But first, some old pals stopped by to say hello, so let's get to it!  Enjoy...

Mike and Mindy.  Even in retirement those goofballs still get into trouble!  Back bacon ain't cheap, let alone four pounds of it!  And that was brioche French toast they ate!  I hope those little turds are in agony when nature eventually calls!  Better hide my five golden toques before they mistake them for Christmas crepes!

And that's all for Christmas folks!  Next week will be all New Year's, so we're getting the merriment in while we still can!  As we close the book on another year I once again wanna encourage all of you to help those in need at this special time of year.  I was one of those less fortunate growing up and you know what?  A donated meal or toy really can make a world of difference in a person's life.  So please, lend a hand.  Until then, have a fun and safe holiday with your loved ones!  Take care and Merry Christmas y'all!

We're back!  It's week two of December and we're plowing right along to Christmas!  Last week, the Snow Miser came by for a visit which led to some hurt feelings from another figure known for his holiday... Cheer of sorts.  So I figured fair is fair and invited this individual down to give his opinion on the state of the holidays.  Grab some eggnog or chilled cider and try to keep cool with this one.  Enjoy...

He's Mr. Green Christmas,
 He's Mr. Sun...
He's Mr. Heat Blister,
He's Mr. Hundred And One...

His friends, few and far between as they may be, call him Heat Miser.  This is largely because everything he touches tends to melt in his clutch.  It can't be easy going through life looking like a giant, angry troll doll, but the Heat Miser, voiced by veteran actor George S. Irving, did it with style!  I think Heat Miser's anger was somewhat justifiable.  Having lived in San Diego my whole life, I've never been able to enjoy the magic of a Winter Wonderland.  Granted, a Christmas beach party is pretty cool too, but it's just not the same!  Take heart Heat Miser.  The CRAZIES appreciate you.

And that's a wrap for this week.  Speaking of wrapping, I need to get my presents taken care of!  We'll be back next time with a few familiar faces who'll be staring down a belly full of trouble!  Until then, take care and please think of those in need this season.  Donate while you can.  Every little bit helps!  Take care and I'll catch y'all later!

Welcome to December CRAZIES!!!  Is it really the end of the year already?  Time just flies by, doesn't it?  Seems the older I get, the more it speeds up.  But hey!  It's Christmas time!  Ain't no room for sad sacks around here!  It's time to bust out the tinsel and holly and bake some cookies!  The Holidays are here and we're celebrating with some old favorites!  So pull an ugly sweater over your head and enjoy...

He's Mr. White Christmas
He's Mr. Snow...
He's Mr. Icicle,
He's Mr. Ten Below... 

Yup folks.  We got the Snow Miser chilling with us this week and let me tell y'all something:  Ain't no business like Snow Business!  The Year Without A Santa Claus has long been a favorite of mine as far as the Rankin/Bass holiday specials go.  It's one of those shows that's so weird its great!  And probably the biggest reason why the show is so memorable is because of the Miser Brothers, Snow Miser and Heat Miser, respectively.  Snow Miser was voiced by comedian Dick Shawn who'll long be remembered best as LSD in the original film version of The Producers.  And much like Mel Brooks' legendary comedy, Shawn steals the show here too!

And this seems like a good place to call it for the week.  After all, the holidays are in full swing here and it's a super busy time for all!  But we'll be back next week with more fun with an old pal from Christmas past, so be sure to come back and give it a look!  In the meantime, take care and be sure to donate to local food, toy and clothing drives this season.  Remember those who are less fortunate and lend a hand!  Until next time, I'll catch y'all later!
