Hello! I am so excited to finally plug my shrine for the Creature Feature Challenge. :D Allow me to present Like a Boss, dedicated to the awesome angry gumball machine, Benson! He is a major character on the animated series Regular Show, which can be seen on Cartoon Network. The show is pretty weird, but it's funny and has lots of supernatural stuff. Plus 80's references. So what's not to like? Benson is the boss of the two main characters and is known for his temper. And being a gumball machine.. But anyway, I should let you learn about him at the site!

I hope you enjoy it! And if you aren't familiar with Regular Show, I hope that my site can at least pique your interest. Do let me know if you ever check it out, I'd love to see what you think of it. And of course I'd love thoughts on the site, too! This is my first character shrine in a really long time, so I felt a little rusty.

Thanks, everyone!! :yay:

Alread told you on Twitter but I love it! It's also easy to understand for someone who has not seen the series (like me lol).

I've never seen the show either, but I had no problem reading through it! It was really accessible and easy to read through. The work you put into this site really shows, and I'm really glad you were able to get it done for the challenge! C:

Also the layout is really stunning -- simplicity/minimalism can be tricky but you really pulled it off well here. I'm in love with the navigation in particular, omg. :heart:

Hi, Sarah!

I know I've said this on twitter, but I really like the layout! It's very easy to look at and read!

When I clicked through this earlier, I also really like the way the navigation is set up ^_^ (i.e. the Office = site-related) it's a cute idea!

This definitely makes me want to watch the show, because I have been wondering for a while now where your icon was from XD! So I am very glad you included where I can watch this for free! :heart:

<33 I also really enjoy freebies and I love your pixel Benson, his expression really solidifies him as being an angry character!

Now I have to watch that Lonely Island video XD

Edit: I found this in the video comments and I couldn't help myself from copying and pasting XD

I'm not familiar with the character, but right away I can see that you've put a lot of time and thought into this, not only from what I've seen on Twitter, but just be looking at the site. The layout and pixel are so cute! It's fun getting to know this character, I enjoy listening to your writing style. :)

Sarah, this is awesome! The layout is beautiful and simplistic. I like it a lot. I've seen very little of Regular Show, but I like Benson, lol. I love your choices of shrine subjects.

I am so in love with the simple layout you made it's ridiculous.

@Crystal: Thanks so much, Crystal!! I'm glad it's easy to understand. I always appreciate that whenever I visit a site to a subject I'm not familiar with.

@Larissa: You are too kind. :blush: I was worried about the layout being too simple, but I feel much better after what you said. And navigation is always a headache for me, so your liking it makes it worth it! :D

@Neo: Wow, thanks for all kind comments! I'm glad you like the navi and feel that the pixel captured Benson's anger. xD And aw, you should have asked me about my icon before! I'm glad you know now, though, hehe. Also, that is some awesome giant text right there! :Db I hope you can watch the show sometime, let me know what you think.

@Mikari: I'm so glad my love for Benson shows! Thanks, Mikari. :D I consider you a pixel genius so I'm thrilled you like my pixelling attempts, hehe. I appreciate the comment on my writing, too, I always worry about that.

@Todd: Even seeing a little of it is good by me! And you like Benson, even better. :D Thanks for all the kind words, Todd! I appreciate it a lot.

@Destinie: THANK YOOOOUUUUU!! I've been excited to see what you think since I know you like Regular Show too. :D Please do adopt one if you want! He's a hard worker. ;)

@Nyx: Aww. ;-; I kept thinking this layout was so simple it was boring, but your comment erases that worry. <3

THANK YOU EVERYONE!! :heart:
