Old School Lane Updates 9/10/2013

Hey guys, Patricia here. You might be wondering about where the Nickelodeon tribute is since I haven't posted a new review over the past month. Well, I've been busy with a lot of things. First and foremost, as some of you will probably know, Kevin and I are co-writing the Manic Expresssion movie script. We've been bouncing ideas between James and Some Jerk from Boston of what the final results would be. It's becoming great so far and we're hoping to get the script done around Christmas. Also, Kevin and I have been making up for our lack of articles with episodes of Casual Chats, Turtle Talk, and Nick Jukebox. We hope you've been enjoying them since it's become a huge stress relief for us to talk about some fun topics. We will be having 6 more episodes of Casual Chats until we complete our first season and we'll be taking a break to work on other topics for Season 2.

Another thing I want to bring up is that Kevin and I will be going to two book events on Friday, September 27 and Saturday, September 28. The one on Friday will be promoting the book Slimed! An Oral History of Nickelodeon's Golden Age by Mathew Klickstein. You probably remember our interview with him a while back. There will be many special guests over there from former Nickelodeon celebrities to writers and creators. It'll be a blast for any Nickelodeon fan. The one on Saturday will be promoting the book A Christmas Story: Behind the Scenes of a Holiday Classic by Caseen Gaines. You probably remember our interview with him a while back when he wrote his first book Inside Pee-wee's Playhouse: The Untold Story of a Pop Culture Phenomenon. A few of the actors from the movie will also appear there. If any of you are in the Manhattan area and are going to any of these events, come by and say hello to us!

Plus, I'm also an admin for the Re-Open Nickelodeon Studios in Orlando, FL Facebook Page and I host, edit, and produce their podcast series monthly, I help Comic Book Cast co-host Ben with his series Childhood Throwback reviewing movies from his childhood, and I've been looking for a job. All of those things combined with watching movies and TV shows for the Nickelodeon tribute left me burned out. I needed a break from writing articles. However, I'll be back doing it real soon since I want to do other projects other than Nickelodeon shows. So please be patient.

Plus, I've been feeling very low lately. I've let a lot of people down with delayed audio tracks needed for Podcast Plays, not feeling that I do enough for how the movie is progressing, and the fact that I'm almost 30, completely broke, unemployed, and still living with my parents. Recently, an old co-worker that I knew from college had his first son. He wasn't the first one since most of them since our graduation have either gotten great careers, married, and some even have children while I'm still left behind. However, hopefully things start getting better.

Anywho, that's what's been going on. Thanks for once again being there for me, everyone. Love you all. See you guys around.
