Disney's What the Hellfire was I dreaming? by Tabascofanatikerin
Disney's What the Hellfire was I dreaming?
Yes, you might be wondering what this crossover is all about. Who comes up with this stuff? Well, it's me, obviously. But how?

A few days ago I dreamt two different dreams about flying in one night.
The first one was about me travelling by plane for the first time (I've never done that before).
But the second dream is what made me paint this weird picture:

In this dream the happy end sequence of the Disney movie "The Hunchback from Notre Dame" from 1996 (which is one of my favourite Disney movies btw) turned out differently.
As you may know in the original the villain dies, the crowd of Paris cheers as the heroes Quasimodo, Esmeralda and Phoebus step outside of Notre Dame and everyone is just happy. The beauty of the film, Esmeralda gets together with Phoebus and that's it.
But in my dream she steps towards the crowd to give a speech. In it she tells that she finally realized how bad and evil humanity turned out to be and that she no longer will live among men. As she says that a pair of wings appeared out of her back. And if that's not enough, Dumbo landed next to her. That's right. Dumbo, the flying elephant from another Disney movie. She climbs on his back and they set off to fly into the sky/to heaven (remember, Esmeralda technically is an angel now) as all the people in Paris stare in disbelief at the situation.
So Esmeralda and Dumbo fly towards the sunrise and high above Paris together (sometimes seperate, sometimes with Esmeralda on Dumbo's back) and Disney-typical triumphant music is heard throughout this scene.

I dream a lot and a lot of weird stuff that deserves to be put on paper but here I actually did this in form of a quick painting.
So, dear Disney fanatics, what do you think of this crossover?

A content Christmas Bear by Tabascofanatikerin
A content Christmas Bear
This is my water colour painting for the campaign "Operation Christmas Child". More specifically, it's for a boy (2-4 years old) and is inspired by the stuffed animal I put in the box. It's, of course, a teddy bear.
It's cheesy, I admit, and I guess I have a thing for having people or other creatures drinking tea in a nice scenery.
But at least I hope that the recipient will like my homemade Christmas card :)

Done with pencil and water colours.

P.S.: If you are interested, you can see this year's christmas boxes of mine here: tabascofanatikerin.deviantart.…

Operation Christmas Child 2014 by Tabascofanatikerin
Operation Christmas Child 2014
It's that time of the year again :)

I think you've already heard of the project "Operation Christmas Child". It is a project that has been going on for many years now and it's about packing shoe boxes full of gifts for poor children in poor countries (like countries in East Europe, Haiti or Kenya) for christmas. Where I live and where I come from the same project is called "Weihnachten im Schuhkarton" (Christmas in a shoe box).

Like last year I packed two shoe boxes. This year they're for a small boy and a teenage girl. I had the feeling that this year I had some more trouble keeping all the gifts in the boxes. But somehow it worked.

This is what I packed this year.

Girl aged 10-14 years (top)

1 pair of gloves, 1 wool cap, 3 knee-lengths socks, 1 stuffed rabbit, 1 Yamaha recorder, 1 skipping rope, 1 Yo-yo, 2 sets of colourful beads, 3 chocolate bars, 1 big lollipop, 3 small lollipops, 1 bag of fruit candies, 1 pack of grape sugar (currant), 1 washcloth, 1 toothbrush, 2 toothpaste tubes, 1 comb, 1 lip balm lipstick, 1 set of hair clips, 3 different notebooks to write/draw in, 1 pocket calculator, 1 ruler, 1 triangle ruler, 2 erasers, 1 sharpener, 1 ballpoint pen, 3 pencils, 1 set of coloured pencils, 1 tin box for a few pens and smaller things, 1 water colour picture (with photo and greetings on the back)

Boy aged 2-4 years (bottom)

1 pair of gloves, 1 fleece cap, 3 knee-lengths socks, 1 teddy bear, 1 toy car, 1 yellow softball, 3 chocolate bars, 1 bag of fruit candies, 1 pack of grape sugar (orange), 7 small lollipops, 1 washcloth, 1 toothbrush, 2 toothpaste tubes, 1 comb, 1 colouring book, 1 set of coloured pencils, 1 eraser, 1 sharpener, 1 water colour picture (with photo and greetings on the back)

Even though I think the mixes are good I feel kinda bad that the girl's box has more stuff in it. But then again the extra gifts are mostly smaller school supplies. And the boy's toys take up good space in his box.

Next year I wanna participate again, of course :)
Does anyone of you pack shoe boxes?

Top 10 Favourite Video Games when I was a Kid by Tabascofanatikerin
Top 10 Favourite Video Games when I was a Kid
My good friend :iconzwerg-im-bikini: created a new meme: A top 10 of favourite videogames I played in my childhood.
I like the idea and so this meme gets filled out.

What are my own rules here?
- Every game I knew and played before I turned 14 counts.
- Only video games, no board or card games (of course).
- Every platform that was there counts and because I was a PC/MS-DOS child you will see mostly MS-DOS games here. Only one exception: LCD games from Tiger Electronics don't count.
- The order is random because I can't put them in an exact order.

Here we go (clockwise, beginning in the upper left corner):

- Simon the Sorcerer (PC, 1993) (and the sequel)
This was a special adventure game. Why? First, it was not from Lucasfilm/LucasArts and second, it was one of those adventure I solved together with my sister (because we didn't have internet back then or a walthrough book, you know). It was a lot of fun and the game (as well as its sequel) also works perfectly fine today. It's one of the best adventure games I've experienced with beautiful graphics, a fantastic soundtrack, good jokes and challenging but fun puzzles to solve. Oh and I think this was the first adventure game in my life with speech!

- Tomb Raider (MS-DOS, 1996)
True story: When this game came out I browsed in an electronics store with my dad. I saw the game and said out loud that I would love to play this (I knew that I had parents who wouldn't buy me everything no matter how hard I wished for that right now). And he just took a box and bought it. Can you imagine how happy I was? :D
And can you imagine how fascinated I was by the graphics and gameplay? I no longer had to run from left to right but right through caves and environments, up and down, exploring places and shooting creatures, it was so awesome!
To this day - even though it can't say I've played all Tomb Raider games - this first one is still my favourite Tomb Raider.

- Dungeons & Dragons: Stronghold (MS-DOS, 1993)
This is my favourite simulation game that I still enjoy to play.
What is it about? You build a kingdom including maximum five castles and races (you can choose between magicians, elves, fighters, dwarves, clerics etc.), take care of your people and buildings, raise money and fight your enemies (which are all random monsters of different kinds).
The game is addicting and even when I had times in my life when it got boring, some times later I would wanna play it again so much ;) This qualifies "Stronghold" for the Top 10.

- Day of the Tentacle (PC, 1993)
I guess this is the LucasArts adventure that had the most impact on me in my childhood (next to the older "Last Crusade"). I loved the concept of time travelling and controlling three different characters in their time periods, I loved everything in this game (the graphics, the soundtrack, the puzzles, the characters...) and I still do today.

- Disney's The Lion King (MS-DOS, 1994)
I adored platformers and I adored "The Lion King". So it was clear that I had to play the official game. Oh boy, did I suffer because the game was (is) so hard later on! But anyway, it's a good game and challenging, a game that drew me to it over and over again and I guess that the level design is the most appealing thing to me. It's kind of addicting. Oh and btw I managed to beat the game back then but only with the life-restoring cheat code during the last few levels. I know: Pathetic...

- Crystal Caves (MS-DOS, 1991)
One very old classic of my childhood.
It's a platformer where you go through levels on an alien planet. The levels include different monsters and other dangerous objects (like air containers that cause your death if you accidentally shoot them), jewels and keys you have to collect to continue. It's very basic and even a quite silent game (only a few sound effects) but I liked it very much and it's addicting.

- Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (MS-DOS, 1989)
This is the very first adventure game I've ever experienced in my life (if I'm not wrong). And I even played it before I ever watched the movie.
The story is the same and I enjoyed the graphics and puzzle-solving so much. I was amazed by all that and by the character sprites. As a kid I never completed the game, nevertheless it burned into my brain.

- Super Mario World (SNES, 1990/1992)
You might be wondering why there are hardly any console games like this in my top 10? That's because I never had any consoles. Whenever I had the chances I played consoles at friends houses or in stores but this wasn't enough time to fully experience most of the games. One that impressed me much and that I still played often was "Super Mario World" on SNES. As I told: I adore platformers and "Super Mario World" was one of the most entertaining and beautiful ones I've played.
I thought about putting "Super Mario Land" (Gameboy) here but this SNES game feels like a full package.

- Commander Keen in Invasion of the Vorticons (MS-DOS, 1990)
The first "Commander Keen" ever and one I experienced very early. The graphics, gameplay and levels appealed to me. I even found something scaring me in that game and that's the weird blue wolf (werwolf?) jumping around. It would only be the first of many great CK games but yes, this one came first.

- Jill of the Jungle (MS-DOS, 1992)
And another great platformer (even with a female protagonist).
You controll Jill through several levels killing animals with your flying dagger and collecting keys and apples (for health).
Simple and so good. What I liked (and like) the most were the level designs and the soundtrack. This and more made this game memorable.

Other games that didn't quite make the list but are notable, good childhood games:

- Sam & Max Hit the Road (PC, 1993)
- Mario All-Stars (SNES, 1993)
- Hocus Pocus (MS-DOS, 1994)
- Hugo (MS-DOS, 1996)
- Commander Keen in Aliens Ate my Baby Sitter! (MS-DOS, 1991)
- Pandemonium (PC, 1997)
- Lemmings (MS-DOS, 1991)
- Tetris (1989, Nintendo Gameboy)
- Kid Icarus: Of Myths and Monsters (Nintendo Gameboy, 1991/1992)
- Super Mario Land (Nintendo Gameboy, 1989/1990)
- Sonic the Hedgehog 1 (Sega Genesis, 1991)
- Aladdin (MS-DOS and SNES, 1993)
- Xargon (MS-DOS, 1993)
- Monster Bash (MS-DOS, 1993)
- World Class Leader Board (MS-DOS, 1988)
- Stunts (MS-DOS, 1990)
- Leisure Suit Larry 1 + 5 (MS-DOS and PC, 1987 and 1991)
- King's Quest VII: The Princeless Bride (PC, 1994)
- Battle Chess (MS-DOS, 1988/1991)
- Halloween Harry (a.k.a. Alien Carnage) (MS-DOS, 1993)
- Bio Menace (MS-DOS, 1993)
- Whacky Wheels (MS-DOS, 1994)
- Secret Agent (MS-DOS, 1992)
- Cosmo's Cosmic Adventure (MS-DOS, 1992)
- Jazz Jackrabbit (MS-DOS, 1994)
- Mickey's Dangerous Chase (Nintendo Gameboy, 1991)
- Skunny: Back to the Forest + Save our Pizzas! (MS-DOS, 1993)
- Disney's Animated Storybook: The Lion King (PC, 1994)
- Mario is Missing (PC, 1992 and yes, I enjoyed the PC game at least a bit)
- Fiendish Freddys Big Top O Fun (Commodore Amiga, 1990)

And a lot of other games (mostly MS-DOS games again, but also SNES, Sega Genesis, Gameboy and Amiga titles) I either can't recall their titles, didn't play that often or are fun but not worth mentioning that much.

I also noticed that a lot of platformers I loved to play (and that are still fun today) came from "Apogee Games". :D

I think this news deserves an entry: The final match of the FIFA World Cup 2014 just ended and Germany is World Champion now. After an exciting match of about two hours it finally happened again after 1990!

I may be just a regular German who is not even interested in soccer every day but I'm really happy for the German team and their coach Jogi Löw. They played very well, if not awesomely, in general. I watched every match they were in.
RESPEKT, liebe Nationalmannschaft! :)
