I've been receiving some comments from some of you guys (I do read the comments you people make), and have received some mail, both inspiring and, well, some that make me glad I've never put my address on the site. I really only like to post new comments whenever there's actually something to post about - random comments about nothing are just like twitter, and we all know how much I loathe twitter.
Oh, you didn't know I hated twitter? well I do. A lot.
Anyway, lately I've been feeling like I just kind of left everyone who actually still cares (How or why is a miracle in itself) in the dark on what's going on with my stuff. I recently received a personal message from a fan, which I replied to and essentially summed up everything I want to actually explain in layman's terms:

I'd give about a 45% chance that the movie is ever going to be completed. Although I started it long ago, I never got far into it (Literally, only a few hundred frames) and have honestly lost my urge to animate at all.
I'm hopeful that one day my animation 'pang' will return, but don't hold your breath.
That is, essentially, everything I can say at this point. Call it whatever you want, but I call it creativity block, and it's been going on since I began (or tried to) Madness Mini 6 in early 2008. Like I said in the PM, perhaps one day it'll go away, perhaps one day I'll get that urge to create back, but at the moment, animation is basically a hollow process for me, and nothing good comes from doing something you don't want to do.
Anyway, not trying to be a downer or anything, I'm just telling you people like it is, because I know (for the most part) you're all mature enough to take the truth without going ballistic (although past experiences may prove otherwise).
In the meantime, this is where I get off.
