Christmas Aftermath 2011.

Oh what fun it is to... make a mess.

So what did Santa leave under your Astro-Weenie Christmas Tree this year? Yes indeedy, you know the drill... post what gifts you received over the holidays this year so we can all be extremely jealous and decide who we need to burglarize in the future. I'll post my holiday haul soon, but first I have to survive some more travel, so I'll let you guys get started.

Okay, on with the gifts! Post lists of whatcha got and feel free to include photos of your Christmas holiday hauls! Let's see just how spoiled you bastards really are!

Happy Christmas: Holiday Color Blanks And Some New Videos!

Wow, Christmas really sneaked up on us quickly this month, didn't it? I guess time flies when one is preoccupied with all things Abobo. Well, I hope you guys enjoyed the two huge pictorials from our trip to South Korea, including the latest one from Lotte World in which I shared videos of their insane Christmas parades at night and more. And speaking of Christmas goodies, check this out:

Color Blanks - 2011 Special Holiday Pack!

We found this new Color Blanks 2011 Special Holiday Pack at Target a few weeks back and simply had to pick it up. Some of you may recall the Halloween Color Blanks from last year, so it's good to see them releasing some Christmas ones too. This particular pack came with a blank snowman and a blank reindeer figure. Of course, I could've just slapped on the cheap stickers that were included with the set and ruined them, but I live with an artist, so I decided to have Re color them in. I clearly chose wisely, for here they are:

Color Blanks - 2011 Special Holiday Pack!

As you can see, Re made a wonderful little snowman and reindeer, who are both feeling a bit embarrassed about their poop chutes being left open. Pretty nifty, especially when you consider that the markers they include with these Color Blanks sets are awful.

In other news, I recorded some brand new Christmas videos with my buddy Andre "BlackNerd" Meadows and they're finally up online just in time for the holidays. Behold!

Anyway, I survived some hellish Christmas holiday travel, but I'm drinking some black cherry flavored ginger ale out of my moose mugs and am now feeling peachy keen. Gonna watch some of my favorite Christmas holiday flicks over the next 24 hours like Jack Frost: The Mutant Killer Snowman, Scrooged, and Silent Night, Deadly Night to name a few. Hope you're all having a great holiday season so far and I hope Santa treats you well.

And yes, we'll have another one of our traditional "Christmas Aftermath" threads in the next day or two so you'll be able to share all the goodies you received. Until then, may you all find your way out from underneath a mountain of discarded Christmas present wrapping papers. The journey is long and hard, but you must continue dig, dig, dig... for oxygen awaits! And maybe even an Astro-Weenie Christmas Tree.

As they say in Seoul - Happy Christmas!

p.s.: Hit the jump for two more goodies - outtakes from our Christmas videos! (more...)

8-Bit Rock Around The Christmas Tree MP3! Download And Be Jolly!

Last holiday season, we released a splatterific new game about Mrs. Claus called The Snow Runs Red and you guys did a fine job of defending your Christmas trees while killing hordes of greedy kids. Once again, I received some requests for an mp3 copy of my 8-bit rendition of "Rock Around The Christmas Tree", so I've decided to put it up as a free download. Just click below to get your copy of the mp3:

[Download Rock Around The Xmas Tree]

I hope this tune makes a nice addition to your Christmas jukeboxes, and may it make your holiday season happier than Buddy the Elf in a maple syrup factory.

Also, in case you missed it last year, I also released my 8-bit version of "Santa Claus is Coming To Town" which you can download here. And while you're at it, play our Santa Fu game as well.

By the way, I know there haven't been many updates here since we released our new Abobo's Big Adventure trailer earlier last month, but we're really working hard to wrap up our work on the game and it's taking up a big chunk of time. On top of that, Re and I just took a Thanksgiving / early-Christmas trip to Seoul, South Korea and it was absolutely amazing. Naturally, we took a boatload of photos while we were there, so you can expect a big "Christmas in South Korea" I-Mockery pictorial coming to the site in the near future. Believe me when I say that the people of Seoul do Christmas better than pretty much any place I've seen in the United States, and you'll see why soon enough. Until then, enjoy the 8-bit tune!
