Happy Birthday, DOOM!
It's been only a couple of weeks and it's time for another anniversary that has to be celebrated; id Software's DOOM turns 20 years old today! And since this coincides with our Weekly Penguin Tuesday, we just have to create a special wallpaper for the occasion, bringing together the originators of TAGAP; The one-and-only Funky Penguin and DOOM!
Happy 20th Anniversary, DOOM! Let's hope we'll see your return soon enough!

Happy Birthday, Doctor Who!
If you've been following this site these past years, two things should be pretty clear by know; Penguin DT is seriously into penguins and Doctor Who. And now the latter is about to hit an epic benchmark by turning 50 years old next Saturday, November 23rd.
And how to celebrate this momentous occasion? Why, by creating a special artwork, of course! Perhaps the biggest digital art project I've ever done outside TAGAP, here comes The Eleven Penguin Doctors. For more detailed look on the artwork and 'Who's Who' within it, check out this week's Weekly Penguin entry.
Considering how great the artwork turned out, naturally we've turned it into cool little downloads, from full-range of wallpapers to brand new buddy icons – there's no better way of showcasing your love for penguins and The Doctor than sporting these around the Interwebs.
But more than anything, this artwork is our way of giving our heartfelt thanks to BBC, Big Finish Productions and all the Doctors; Thank you for keeping The Doctor alive, vital and ever-so-inspiring. Without 'the madman with a box' the world would be a lot duller place.
Happy 50th Anniversary, Doctor! And a toast for another 50 years to follow!

Welcome to TAGAP.net v4.0!
TAGAP website has been upgraded to version 4.0, perhaps the biggest overhaul this site has gone through since we launched in 2007. The new site is slick, faster and in general more modern and up with the times.
To learn more about the website overhaul and changes, please refer to our latest blog post. The blog also delves into the matter of forums being shut down as well as gives you another TAGAP 3 progress update. And this is November 2013, after all, so naturally Doctor Who gets mentioned.
This overhaul being so big and complex we're bound to hit a snafu or two in the process, so if you stumble onto something that doesn't work, please let us know.

First ever metal concert... on Antarctica
Non-TAGAP Antarctic news, so to put it short; Metallica will perform an exclusive concert on Antarctica. No big band has done this before, ever. In addition the extremely hostile conditions, the place is highly protected, so not just anyone would be allowed to do it.
Speaking of protection, fear not, this is not a case of a band exploiting nature for PR, but actually a co-operative thing. Great care has been taken not to spoil the last untouched place on Earth, to the point the attendees will listen to the concert via headphones. Additionally, the Carlini Argentine Base hosting the gig will receive hefty amounts of equipment donated by the band and the participating partner Coca Cola.
You can't buy tickets for this legendary exclusive event – and you can't even win them unless you happen to live in the South America. But hey, if you do, you lucky sod, head to Metallica's official site and follow instructions to participate. Actually, I'm kind-of glad I can't buy the tickets, as I would've set up a tent outside the ticket office already.
This news popped up earlier, but I actually dismissed it as nonsense; No way something this cool – no pun intended – could actually happen. But hey, it's actually true, so here we go!
