So long, and thanks for all the fish...

There comes a point in life where you realize that something that was once your muse has become a chore.

Simply put, my interest in SWAT Kats is... gone; and updating the blog has become a chore.

I'm not sure why it happened. Maybe I've just grown tired of waiting.

Let's face it: I've been working this blog for almost half a decade and all we have to show for it is some vague mumblings about a Kickstarter campaign that comes... sometime in the future. When you see the same show and dance for the last three or four years, you begin to wonder if it will ever happen. Yes, they've said they're working on a Felix the Cat project, but there isn't even news about that, meaning it will probably be years more until that's complete; which brings us to the next problem.

Many of the voice actors of the original series are either dead or are retired from voice acting (the later includes the voice actor of Razor, Barry Gordon, who currently runs a talk show and is a teacher at a university). So even if the show was revived, how many of the original voice actors would return after so many years?

Maybe someday we'll see a new SWAT Kats series, but it will be so different from the original that I think fans would be disappointed.

It's probably for the best that it's not revived, better to relive the memories than to expect something that will probably let us down.

This blog will remain, but it's unlikely that there will ever be new posts.

See you all somewhere else.

I'm Still Here

Don't worry, I haven't forgotten about the project, and the Tremblays don't seem to have forgotten either.

Good things come to those who are patient. :)

Music Genres

I've decided to make a post about music genres that fit various characters.

Chance and Jake: blues (example).

Razor and T-Bone: progressive metal (this was a description of the genre I heard used in the credits).

The Metallikats: neurofunk (a subgenre of drum and bass, example).

The Pastmaster: symphonic black metal (example).

Dark Kat: dark ambient (example).

Any you can think of?

There won't be much activity for now

As the Tremblays are currently working on a project unrelated to SWAT Kats, this blog will not have much activity until they are done.

With that said, you might want to set up some way to be alerted when new posts do show up. With any luck the next posts will bring good news.

News

The Tremblays currently have a planned revival of the SWAT Kats on the back burner.

They're still planning on doing it, but they're currently working on something else. So we will need to wait a while.
