Garrrrrrr - it be Talk Like a Pirate Day, matey and that's the extent of sea-faring shiz you'll get from me in this post.

Over at the Cardfish site where those happy-go-lucky folk
have me in charge of commissioning I gave artist Sarah Hopson and grandmaster-flash Phil Bower the opportunity to celebrate this one-of-a-kind event with a Cardfish eCard that let's you paste your mug or a mate's onto a Peg-legged Pirate who jigs, dances and - surprise, surprise - talks just like a genuine flippin' pirate!

There's a little mutinous twist I added to the mix, plus some extra bits and bobs and the voice of the characters supplied by yours-truly. Pop over there and send someone you love (or conversely, can't stand) a Cardfish to celebrate this frankly ridiculous day! (Once it's gone you can send Birthday or Get Well Soon versions of the same card, so it's not all been a terrible waste!).

(While you're at it, this weekend is your last chance to vote for the E4 award nominated game I also let them get away with - the supremely satisfying Hamsters Vs Aliens!)

Hamsters Vs Aliens

Like me you've no doubt pondered exactly what would happen if those lovable fur-baring, oft-caged critters we know as hamsters went toe to toe against mean green flying-machine equipped alien beings! Well you need ponder no longer as two of my Cardfish shipmates Phil Bower and Sarah Hopson have created a game which reveals the terrible out-come of such a mismatch in all it's grimy glory!

Very soon you'll be able to send each other a version of this game as a personalised greeting card, but for the time-being it's in the running to win a much-coverted prize at

Please pop over there and give them your vote - their competition isn't much cop and frankly they could do with the cash....
