Firstly I’d like to send a thank you to those who are keeping up with this blog, which presumably means you’re enjoying my write-ups. I’d like to think my analyses have improved somewhat over time, and hopefully I’ve made them interesting enough to keep you guys reading, and keep the spirit of classic Simpsons alive. This project is a huge undertaking (as mentioned, I’m only a fourth of the way through), and I plan to see this thing to the very end.
That being said, come 2012, updates may start becoming a bit more infrequent. Starting January, I will be attending the DAVE School in Orlando for a one year program in computer animation and visual effects, something I’m sure will eat up a fair amount of my time. On top of that, I’m also planning on diving up the little free time I’ll have to do other reviews; I’m long overdue to update my Disney Animated Canon blog to include the two newest films (Tangled and Winnie the Pooh), and I also want to start a whole new one devoted to going through the Dreamworks Animation library, to examine an entirely new studio’s body of work and its evolution to where it is now. It’s just something I figured would shake things up, and would freshen up my critical mind to analyze something other than The Simpsons for a change.
So yeah, this project may take a little longer than my now roughly one-season-a-month schedule now, but it was already going to take over a year anyway, so what’s one more? I’m glad a bunch of you out there are enjoying the blog, and I hope you continue to in the future.
Also, I’m going away for a few days. Expect the next review next Monday.
