Welcome, Shackers! Happy holidays! We’re finally in December and winding down to the last weeks of Shacknews coverage for this year. We’re all ready to march into 2023 with renewed vigor, but there’s still a few days left to wrap up all of our fun and games before a much-needed break.

Neil Diamond is still GOAT’ed
I don’t know who needs to hear this but Neil Diamond, who retired from performing five years ago because of Parkinsons, just had a Broadway show of him open and it at the opening night he did this pic.twitter.com/eJ02YUAzr5— Ben Phillips (@benphillips76) December 6, 2022
Dude’s been through the wringer in his old age, but those pipes are still pristine. Good times never felt so good. (So good! So good! So good!)

I’ve been meaning to get back into some Simpsons lately. When they were good, they were very good.
Making a Mauscall
Tandemaus and Maushold still remain some of my favorite new critters from the new Pokemon. So silly.

Press the snooze button on their boopable noggin to be thoroughly awakened by the cute.
Some silly and slightly morbid fun. This Asteroid simulator lets you choose the material, speed, and collision angle of an asteroid hitting a place of your choosing. Good for killing a few minutes and seeing what kind of effects an asteroid would have.
Sometimes… you just want to offload the problem because misery loves company. Hopefully Bear 1 eventually gets to the honey and shares with Bear 2 and 3.
Shiny Pokemons for charity

Now, im going to take all these shiny pokemon and Surprise Trade them to kids who got Scarlet/Violet for Christmas.
Stay tuned 😎 https://t.co/tIVTRlFQ4e
This is a pretty cool idea to raise money for the needy and it sounds like the Pokemon will go on to make some lucky kids’ days happier. Good on them for such a cool and kind idea.

I didn’t know it till now, but Street Fighter x Splatoon is a collaboration I would happily accept. Juri looks natural in Splatoon style.
Thanks for stopping by and reading the Evening Reading as always. If you’d like to support Shacknews, don’t forget that you can do so with Mercury for as little as a dollar a month. Don’t have a dollar? Don’t need one to enjoy the delightful and improved Shackpets! Update 1.07 has launched and brought sticker packs, monthly and weekly Challenges, and so much more. It’s quite a lot of fun in the ultimate battle for pet cuteness and still available for free on iPhone and Android.
And there you have it, Shackers. That’s your Evening Reading for this fine Tuesday. What are you up to tonight? Good games, reading, or TV? Let us know in the Chatty section below!
