We haven’t posted anything new here in over a month. We’re not happy about it either.
We’ve just been sidelined by the usual real world jackassery, then in addition to that we’re now coming into the holiday season, which is a notoriously bad time to try to do anything creative. We do have some new stuff planned, but we more than likely won’t be posting any of it until after January. If something quick and spontaneous comes up we can probably post that, but the more detailed stuff requires time and attention, which we just don’t have right now in the midst of all of this holiday havoc.
Just to give you guys a little taste of what’s to come, here’s a quick preview of some of what we have in the works:
We’re planning to do 2 “Why We Like…” posts: one for Dreamworks’ Trolls…
And one for WB’s Jellystone! (I’ve been wanting to do an updated, more detailed post about this show after that Peeks, now that we’ve actually seen it.)
Both of which likely won’t be ready until after January.
Speaking of Jellystone!, we’re also planning to do a What The Funny for J!; of course a miniseries requires even more time and research, so that probably won’t be ready to post until spring. The earliest I would expect to see this one is late February or early March. (If I want to be super-duper optimistic, maybe late January at the very earliest, but more likely the latter.) The good news is that both of us will be working on this one together, so we should get it done in half the time of past miniseries, and the gaps between the individual entries shouldn’t be as long this time. (And no, we haven’t forgotten about the Regular Show What The Funny or the Animal Jam Pop Dream; we do plan on resuming those miniseries, but we have to be into them in order for them to be good, and neither of us are feeling those right now; the spark for those just isn’t there at the moment.) Also, the miniseries from this point forward will no longer be numbered; when Pop Dream and What The Funny were originally conceived, they were each just going to be one-and-done; when we started doing more and they became semi-recurring segments, we no longer felt it was necessary to number them; we didn’t be doing Pop Dream #35 or What The Funny #46, so from now on the miniseries won’t be numbered. We originally planned to stop numbering them after #10 because we didn’t think either segment would get up to 10, but in the case of each, entry #10 coincided with miniseries we were doing at the time and each still had more entries to go, so we kept the numbering at least until those were complete.
We’re also planning to make more detailed dives into the Cartoonito show Bugs Bunny Builders…
And the new WB produced brawler, Multiversus…
But of course we can’t do that until after either of them debut, which won’t be until 2022.
We’re also planning to do an opinion piece on Mickey Mouse; we’re going to make the case that Disney should start treating him as a character again and not just a corporate mascot…
Again, we expect this one won’t be ready to post until after the holidays. Once more we’re thinking January at the earliest.
So yeah, there is more stuff coming to this site, as soon as we don’t have these pesky holiday preparations and commitments to distract us. In the meantime, we still make the occasional Tumblr post from time to time, and we’ve recently returned (after a self-imposed 5-year sabbatical) to the Anime Superhero Forums; not posting as frequently as before (this is by choice) but we’re there again.
So we know.
And we’re working on it.
Thank you for your patience.
