I'm the space invader...you're squawking like a pink monkey bird...
Well, perhaps this one wasn't quite as easy as I thought, it's always easier when you know...he crassly stated. Lots of wrong answers early on prompted me to post another clue, which seemed to do the trick. Perhaps Space Invaders (the popular arcade game of the early Eighties) wasn't quite as popular outside of the UK. The idea was that you would recognise the clever clue above as a screen grab from the game. The invaders themselves were Bowie heads. The dates in the scores were 1972 and 2002, the release of 'Ziggy Stardust', and the thirty-year celebration date of Ziggy, the album the song 'Moonage Daydream' came from.
The second clue (click on the picture above if you really want to see it again) was a comic reference to 'pink monkey bird'. Again the term 'bird' may have been a little too colloquial, but this clue certainly translated into an influx of correct answers. One of those correct answers was sent to me by the technological wonder that is The Random Selector.
As this is the last competition before Christmas, firstname.lastname@example.org (Catharine Chen) gets to choose the prize of her choice, from this list. Your choice will be winging its way to you as soon as you have furnished me with your real world address Catharine.
Go here for this month's competition picture that was chosen purely for its very vague Christmas connection.
