With today being Thanksgiving here in the US, we’re supposed to use this as an opportunity to give thanks for what we have in our lives. Sure I’m thankful for the usual things as everyone else like family, friends, etc. But one thing I’m extremely thankful for is YOU, the fans of Strange Beaver. When I started this site a while back it was just my own little corner of the internet to post the stupid things I found while surfing. A place where my friends could go to laugh or just get a brief escape from the everyday. I had no idea it would grow into what it has become but I’m thankful that it has. Every day thousands of people that I’ve never met come to this site to enjoy the randomness that I’ve found. Many of these people keep coming back, day after day, to see more. This site has evolved from just some idiot sitting on his couch posting stupid stuff in his spare time, to an idiot sitting on his couch posting stupid stuff in his spare time that lots of strangers seem to enjoy. Along the way I’ve made some new friends, seen some really cool things, learned new things and most of all, I’ve had fun. Through all the good times and bad, the ups and the downs, you guys have made it all worth it. For that, I’m thankful.
Thank you Beavers, and have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving,
The first winner of the “Show Us Your Beaver!” Contest is Arc One Welding from Jacksonville, FL.
This surgeon with a plasma cutter took an old oil drum and cut out the Beaver logo to create the world’s first Strange Beaver Hobo Heater!
We are pleased to announce a new addition to BeaverMart, the ‘Jackie Gibson Collection’. Named after a very special friend of ours and helping a great cause.
Since we first decided to open BeaverMart, it’s mission was clear, offer Strange Beaver fans cool Beaver merchandise and use the proceeds to help out TeamBeaver’s various charity work. The addition of the ‘Orange line’ (helping the National MS Society) was our first venture into ’cause specific’ items. But there was another cause we wanted to help out as well, and for good reason.
Long time friend of Strange Beaver and one of the first members of TeamBeaver, Jackie is a dear friend to everyone. Unfortunately, she was diagnosed with Breast Cancer last year and has been working hard to kick it’s ass. That is why we are proud to name this new line of products after her. The ‘Jackie Gibson Collection’ is all your favorite products, with a pink flair to help support The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
The first items to be released are new Beaver Logo decals. The Pink decals are the same fuschia you see on many items that support Breast cancer research. We’ve also added a soft pink as well.
Check out these and all the other cool products at BeaverMart. Show everyone you’re a Strange Beaver and help a great cause.
It’s the end of the year so you know what that means. Time for the “best posts of the year” list. We searched the logs and come up with the most popular posts of 2012.
So tallying up the hits, here is the list:
Every year an interesting convention rolls through Tampa, Fetish Con. This year was FetishCon 12 and it was sure to be entertaining. Since StrangeBeaver wasn’t “officially” allowed to be there, we had to go incognito and get some pictures of the highlights. There are two things that make Fetich Con interesting, the people, and the toys. If you’re into jackhammers and power tools designed for different orifices, or just looking for something romantic to tie up your significant other while you beat the crap out of them, there’s probably something there to tickle your fancy, or something else.
