Interests
Well, getting an early morning start and heading over to The Big E in my area, our annual regional fair up here in New England.  :eager: :cool:

Dunno how long I'll be out today, probably until the late afternoon or early evening at latest. It's the biggest local event of the fall season and we never miss it. =) Best of all six states of packed in one place for seventeen days of the month. ;)

I'll only be able to check in here by phone while I'm there, so don't expect many replies until I'm back at my desk. ^^; Still, hope you all have a good day, will chat with you all later. =)

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.

Joined AntiAll-Stars. I hope others will do the same and spread the word about what a true betrayal it was to the series.

I plan on releasing it as soon as the writing portion is done. And if you guys know me, that is VERY time consuming. ^^;

Have you ever seen a pilot called "Mr Pickles"?

Well, Scotty did an Animated Atrocity on it, but no.

He did? Well, it's pretty much about this satanic dog that randomly kills people. I just watched it and it was THE worst thing I've ever seen. :fear: :puke:

I put together an atrocity card of the pilot episode: haterassasin96.deviantart.com/…

Can I just say I hate when something like commentary is only available on Blu-Ray?

Seriously. i mean, I don't mind having Blu-Ray exclusive stuff...but commentary should be on DVD and Blu-Ray.

You should block gonzo22. I'm positive he's a troll who's been annoying other people about their opinions and what not. Just wanted to let you know since you're apparently one of his friends and I don't want you to get swept up by his troublemaking.

The weekends are going to be pretty crazy for me, considering on each day, one of the shows I watch will air new episodes. Korra on Friday, Doctor Who on Saturday, Once Upon a Time on Sunday.
