Old School Lane Update: April 2024

Hello everyone. Second verse, same as the first. I don't have time to make a vlog update, so it's going to be via text. As of right now, Old School Lane is going on a semi-hiatus until further notice. Why? Well, I'm getting married. In the next few months, I'm putting all of my energy into packing my stuff, planning the wedding, and ending the chapter of my life here in Alabama and starting anew in the United Kingdom. I did record a few episodes of Casual Chats and will have the Good Burger 2 Go video up in time for All That's 30th anniversary, but other than that, you're going to see very little content from me. I'm sorry to those who have been patiently waiting for more Old School Lane content, but I need to focus on what's important.

Speaking of All That, I was originally going to announce that I would be doing a virtual reunion livestream on the Nickelodeon sketch comedy show where a few people were interested in participating. However, I was then told that due to certain circumstances, they didn't want to do it anymore. I know exactly what they're referring to and I completely understand. I'm planning on doing one, but not yet. Maybe it won't be on a Nickelodeon show. We'll see.

For those who were wondering if I'm going to do any panels at conventions like I did last year, I will not. I had applied for several conventions, including MomoCon in Atlanta, but was rejected. That's okay because I do have plans to get married and I can't afford to spend money on tickets, travel, autographs, photos, and souvenirs. By the time I'll consider doing panels, I'll be in England with Arun so maybe we'll do them together. That would be great.

I want to give you my wholehearted thank you for the overwhelming responses when I posted on social media about my writer's block getting worse. I'm glad to see so many people given their support on my situation and telling me that they're willing to wait. In this era of new content creators coming in left and right and delivering great content while others who can't keep up are left in the dust, hearing that made me feel reassured that my viewers and listeners are patient. The YouTube channel doesn't reflect it, though. For the first time in years, I had gained less than 100 subscribers a month (not too surprised), but, again, my priorities are at a different place right now, I've been suffering from writer's block, and the podcasts I've been posting haven't caught on. Also, thank you so much for letting me know that you love for me to cover video games in addition to movies and TV shows. When I have time to write scripts for videos, I will definitely include video games in the mix. 

That's it for now. Again, thank you so much for your patience. It really means a lot to me. See you around Old School Lane soon.
