CDC #347– In Memorium – Results

Well I thought this challenge was a bust until a last minute flood of entries. Thanks to everyone who came out to honour Cliff. I am sure he would be tickled.

Honourable mentions this week go to Melmo44 and rossoftheyear. Melmo gave us a satyr enjoying his leisure time, and Ross created a satyr guaranteed to put a smile on your face,

This week's runner up is AMS for this stunning work; the background is a mastrerpiece.

2017 Movie Roundup Part 2

2017 Movie Wrap-Up

Hello everyone, it’s that time of the year again. We’re now in 2018 so let’s give 2017 one final send-off by talking about the movies of the year. I waited a little bit to write this because there was one movie that I really needed to see again before I put everything in the final order. Now that I’ve taken care of that we can get down to this. I didn’t see that many movies this year (I have a list of 22) for a variety of reasons such as distance from theater, releases that don’t release wide enough for us to get them, general time/life/work, etc. things. There are some big releases that I haven’t seen that I wish I could have put on here but unfortunately can’t, so sorry to It, Thor: Ragnarok, Blade Runner 2049, Geostorm, and Justice League, but you don’t get to be on the list. I will be seeing them once they hit home release but I just didn’t get to them theatrically. With that said, let’s get part one started!

Merry Christmas

(Picture courtesy of Cliff)

Merry Christmas to all of our community members here on Heromachine. Hope you're all having a wonderful holiday season where-ever you are.

R.I.P Cliff

It has just been brought to our attention that Heromachine Community member Cliff unfortunately passed away yesterday, December 23rd. Cliff was a wonderful member of the community, known as much for his exceptionally long and insightful comments as for his excellent machinings. It is a sad day to lose such a wonderful creator and he will be dearly missed. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family at this difficult time.

Rest in peace Cliff, see you on the other side dude.

This Is What It’s Really About

Okay, guys, anyone who's spent any time on the Internet since Last Jedi came out knows it's been controversial. Since JR did a fantastic review, I thought maybe I'd talk about the backlash surrounding it. But that's super negative to do right before Christmas, and refuting all the complaints would be super spoilery. So I thought I'd do something a little more uplifting for the season. Get your kleenex, folks.

dope meshter: That moment you realised Pikachu can talk.

Treasure Hunter: The normal response to the latest Team Rocket swimsuit calender.

Treasure Hunter: They said Net Neutrality would slow down certain content, but the episode has been stuck in this frame for the last hour…

HerrD: Try as the might, the new pop band just couldn't hit the same note and the same time.

But there can only be one winner and that winner is:
