Greetings Manic Fans. Les here to begin the long process of catching up on the blogs I missed while my computer was broken and I was away to help a good friend move their entire house of furniture(but I digress....). I’m here today to present the Outstanding Blog of the Week for the week of 3/10 to 3/17. I hope to post OBotW for 3/17-3/24, 3/24-3/31 and 4/1-4/8 in short order as I get caught up, thanks for being patient with me.

It’s always difficult to select a winner with such talented posters, but I had to make a decision, so I’m giving this week’s Outstanding Blog of the Week to....
Who posted a thoroughly researched and highly entertaining look at the biology of the Xenomorph from the Alien films. 12/14/12
Rarely have I ever seen a topic as completely researched and referenced in clips the way Decker did for this one. With his “best hair in internet reviewing” hair tied back, professor spectacles and an official looking clipboard, he analyzed the life cycle of the Alien and it’s various physical changes from film to film, host to host, etc. in a way that made complete logical sense and came off as authoritative and comprehensive as any college biology class. Well done, Decker!
And so, my friends, please join me in lifting our glasses to toast this week’s winner. “Here’s to you, Decker Shado. May you continue producing video reviews that are informative, very professional and highly entertaining as you’ve been doing.” And thank you Manic Fans for giving some of your time today to help support one of our members.
The Outstanding Blog of the Week is chosen from Saturday to Saturday and posted on Sunday Mornings. If you have a blog, or see one you’d like to recommend, send me a message or wall post and I’ll be happy to consider it for this award. Peace.
