Every Thursday, Voting


; Hello World

Get out and vote.
The entire country depends completely on YOUR vote.

Do it.
Do it today.

NOW, Damnit..

Before you read the depressing section of the newsletter with all the deaths in it.
Get out and vote, then you can sit and read the rest of this.



Have you been?

Right then..
Let's continue.


; Festive Theme

Spurred on by Rockford, I finally got around to making a half-assed Xmas theme for the site.
First a ball was made, then a ghastly red theme, then it got toned down to be less shit, and finally some lights were added.
A job well done, and I've been using the theme all week, so it's not as bad as it sounds!


; Creativity

Shroomy is making great strides with his use of the powerful ShaderToy site, with all manner of different effects being produced.
Jay carries on posting all sorts of odd stuff, but ends up wrapping himself in knitting. (And being a bit of a twat, too)

; Calendars

Jay carries on being slightly disappointed by the chocolate coffees, and his boring four spices.
Meanwhile, Rockford's Star Wars calendar continues to impress.


; Suffuse

As expected, last week's Word of the Week went entirely without a single post.
There's just no time to keep up with all the awesome threads, especially with Xmas being just around the corner!

; Managers

This week's Word is "Managers", and ... damn, I really want to do something with that, but lately my mind is completely fried, and exhausted trying to keep up with the Creativity thread.
Maybe I could turn the Knitting thing into some sort of "Haberdashery Manager" or something..!?!


Holy fuck, has it been a shit week for Celebrity Deaths

Turning that lump of tree into a mug, now that's just way too f***ing cool.
