Interests
For all of those who may not yet be aware of my intentions for the upcoming half season of Total Drama, this is a quick reminder I have decided to put out.

For those who have not yet heard, I have no intentions whatsoever to do any episode reviews of Pahkitew Island which is debuting on Cartoon Network sometime between now and July. Given my lack of confidence in the season as a direct result of both the look of the season and the massively insulting disappointment of All-Stars, I simply do not wish to devote any energies towards it.

I'm very sorry if this upsets anybody who followed my review series of Total Drama: Revenge of the Island so faithfully a long way back. I had a ton of fun reviewing that season for you all and I will always be grateful for the enthusiastic support you gave me as I covered that season from start to finish. You guys are great watchers and I am happy so many of you enjoyed those as much as you seemed to when I did them. You have no idea how much your support means to me, for you all to have expressed interest in my feedback.

And I am also hugely grateful for your support of me during my reviews of All-Stars, I am glad you liked the earlier ones enough to encourage me to do it again. I strongly regret that I was not able to do a more complete series due to my haphazard timing and slowness. But I do not regret tuning out when I did, because that season made me very angry. I wish it didn't come to such an abrupt end, but I had no patience or energy left to bother with the effort. But I am sorry for the outcome of that.

I hope you guys understand. I wish I could be more enthusiastic and join those of you who are still tagging along for the upcoming ride. And I'm still doing reviews, those won't disappear. But until things with the series improve, do not expect another episode-by-episode series of reviews like this anytime soon.

I am sorry that it ever came to this point. But my decision is and will remain final. But don't forget that I will always remain grateful for the generous enthusiasm so many of you showed when I did these. Again, many thanks to you all. There will be other cool things coming your way in the near future.


P.S.: I do not desire any major updates on TDPI for the time that season finally airs. Sorry, but I am intent on sitting that one out.

Not mine, of course. Did that last year. :XD:

Actually, I'll be attending my sister's college graduation in Washington, D.C. on Saturday and will be staying with my folks in Arlington, Virginia for what looks like a good week starting tomorrow. Gonna be stopping in New Jersey briefly before moving on south to see my family there. Gonna be a busy week of festivities and job discussion while I'm in the city.

That being said, don't you guys be surprised if I'm out of touch for long stretches of time. This is shaping up to be a busy week and I can't predict how each day will play out after the graduation ceremony. We'll be staying down there until Memorial Day, eventually making our way back up to New Jersey before finally coming home. For the time that I'm in Virginia, if I'm unavailable for any reason, please assume that I am at a family event or preoccupied with other things. Again, I have no idea how my free time is going to pan out, doubt I'll be allowed to be very lazy in the days before or after the graduation so long as I'm in Virginia. :hmm: But you know me, I'll keep in contact as best as I can. You guys can't get rid of me that easily. ;)

Anyway, so if I'm all over the place or not there at all for the next week and a half, you now know why that probably is. So don't be dismayed if I don't get back to you all right away on comments, discussions, the whole enchilada. I won't be gone, I just likely won't be there as readily as I normally am. Gonna miss you guys in the times where I can't be on but like I said, you're not getting rid of me that easily. =D

That being said, hope to be able to stay in touch with you whenever I am actually able to.

It sucks. I'd like it if it wasn't usually too hot/humid to take advantage of the day.

I swear, the days of summer feel so long, but the actual days go by way too fast.

So, I've listened to more Hush Sound songs, and either "You Are the Moon" or "Weeping Willow" are still my favorites.

From what I hear, it is written by a few people from the pre movie era. Although I am not a big fan of CGI, I like it so far!

I know, surprisingly enough, the trailer was actually funny.

Of course, that doesn't mean anything for sure, especially since this is only one trailer. But, if the movie is as good as this first trailer, it promises to be interesting. Though, I do hope that the movie has a decent amount of hand-drawn animation, and isn't mostly CGI and live-action.

Me too, I don't want it to be overly CGI and live-action either, as that's not where the heart of the show is, even with their occasional forays into live-action.
