Generations Armada Starscream


I was excited when it was announced that Hasbro was making a new Armada Starscream. Transformers Armada may have been an objectively terrible show, and the toys were very hit or miss, but I always thought the character designs were pretty neat.

Unusual and Unexpected New Transformers DVDs


Shout! Factory has listed a new Transformers DVD. It's a budget disk titled "Roar of the Dinobots" and presumably features a couple of Dinobot episodes from the original series. I say "presumably" because they haven't actually listed which episodes are included.

This is completely different, and I'm not sure what to make of it.

We traveled roughly eleven miles to a pair of towns whose names could easily pass for a death metal garage band from Warwickshire: Lower and Upper Slaughter.

Chedworth Roman Villa


Rome occupied Great Britain for 387 years.  I occupied it for 7 days.  I'm the Info Zombie, and this is my honeymoon trip to England.
