Hi Everyone,

I do in fact check the website everyday also for changes, but I have not been posting in a while it is true. The reason is as follows.

I thought about doing a Picture Meerkat and pretending I was taking a year off posting, but in fact the true reason is that with Picture Meerkat sending me nothing, I have nothing to update you on. Picture Meerkat would like to believe that I've been doing nothing movie wise for the last month, but I've been busy advertising and publishing. If he was in touch with his social media (facebook/twitter/dailybooth/youtube) he'd know I've done lots of stuff over there, as many of you probably know. 

Also, one thing that is worth pointing out is that Picture Meerkat can't spell, as his post below proves!

Finally, I have got some news for another guest actor coming in the next few days but I'm just finalising arrangements first, I don't want to let you down that's why I'm making sure I know the situation first!

I'd also like to remind Picture Meerkat who made all of the pages and updates for this website apart from the odd one from Picture on his blog and his annoyances of this page!

I thought I would post this here because it has been a while since Lazykat posted anythink, and when I check to see everyday, nothing has changed. I am hoping that I will forget that I posted this, so that next time I look it will be a nice suprise. Heat over to my blog for more news than the news page... Simples!

 
 
Hi Everyone!

Long time no see! I've been really busy outside of the movie series, but I'm now able to update you with further news.

I have sent out the last of the second generation DVDs today, which means I am now up to date on DVD sales. Those DVDs were a set to Picture Meerkat and a set to a budding fan of the series - I won't fully name him, but he is called Cameron and he is one of the many of you fans that decided to buy these DVDs! Sales have gone so much higher than the original first generation DVDs where hardly any fans brought the DVDs, but thank you so much for your support, I hope you (have) enjoy your copies!

Animating has begun, because Picture Meerkat has done a few scenes from the new movie, he will hopefully be working on animating them soon, but he's done a good job from what I have seen so far! For more details, I highly recommend you check out his blog right here because he is keeping to his word and has been leaving a number of interesting posts!

We've had some problems with the voicing arrangements because I am now unable to do any of the dates originally agreed with Picture Meerkat, so I'm going to wait to hear from him as to what he wants to do. What I've suggested is he does the voicing with him up in his new home and the rest of us can arrange something down here, which will be a lot easier to sort out!

Finally, my role has had to change in the movie series. Although I will maintain my name, I will no longer be doing the animating. This will enable me to change my original plans - which were to leave after movie 4 - but now I shall stay for the whole series, but won't be involved in the animating. 

For those of you worrying what that will mean for you, it just means I'll continue to be heavily involved in the online social networking (twitter/facebook/youtube) for the series as well as: DVD production, advertising, website maintenance, script writing (for all the movies in the series from now on - unless Chris wants to write movie 7!), compiling, editing, music adding, talent scouting (for voice actors/music composers etc.) as well as a number of other roles which you probably didn't even know existed within this project!

So as I hope you can all still see, I'm still going to be heavily involved in the movie series!

Look out for more news soon!

Hi Everyone,

How has your February begun? I hope it is going well so far! I'm glad to have been able to continue my tradition which is to post on the first day of the months. Some months I have no news so just don't manage to do this, but this month I have some great news for you to start your February off well!

Exciting times!

Hi Everyone,

So a podcast has been recorded! This time it was co-hosted by my cousin, Katie, who plays a number of the characters in the movie series, one of which is the Queen. She is our youngest voice actor (only 9!) so I hope you enjoy the episode when it comes out in a few days but don't be mean to her! She did her best! The episode will be out in the next few days, as I've already said and I think she did an awesome job - well done to her!

I just wanted to say, if you were expecting a DVD (that you had ordered) it should be with you soon. About 8 DVDs have been ordered in the last few weeks by you guys, and I have been working to get all of them out as soon as possible. I'm currently writing a copy of DVD 3 with my other computer. I think for the minute I have two more DVDs to make (including the one being made now) but then I have another batch in a week or two! Sorry if you've had to wait a few weeks, but I'm working on it so they DVDs should be sent in the next few days (maybe at the weekend).

I'm hoping to announce another special guest for movie four this weekend, one guest has told me the lines should be with my by this  Friday, so more announcements soon!

Hi Everyone,

I assume you've already seen the butt in below? Yes, that's referring to the post below, left by Picture Meerkat on my blog! But as you'll hopefully have noticed he's decided to finally update his blog for you again yesterday - his first post in... a year. I don't know why he sees this as worth celebrating, but his mind never ceases to confuse the rest of us!

That also explains why he decided to change the banner at the top of the website. It now looks rather Irish with the array of green colours. I have had to edit the banner because it probably left some of you in bewilderment, I added the text above 1st post in one year, because I didn't want you to all think we were celebrating our birthday again. Therefore I added to picture meerkats blog so you would understand what he is on about. Don't worry, its not our movie series birthday again already! That's October!

The reason I visited the website today was not to look at the changes Picture Meerkat had made (because I don't see it as something we should be celebrating and so remembered to forget all about it) and wondered why everything had changed myself! In fact, I visited today to tell you about the new voice actor guest confirmed. Yes, this is our second of a possible four guests that we are welcoming on board, I expect we will probably have three, but who knows! Two is amazing. Look at the paragraph below to find out more about our new guest!

First thing you should know about him is his name is Jack and he has a YouTube channel called BaptismonFire. His channel is the smallest of the four channels of which we asked to join us on this project, but never the less he has had over 14,000 channel views and over 100,000 upload views! He has 621 subscribers and makes British song parodies and spoof on his channel. For us, he will be playing a character called Stocklimp! That's all your getting from me about that now though!

Now we're just waiting to hear from another three people. One we should hear from in the next week or so, the next one we should hear from this time next month and the last one we should hear from in March!

Luckily for you, or maybe unluckily - it depends on the way you look at the situation - the announcements have been staggered. This is not deliberate, it just happens to be the way things have worked out.

:Look out for more new announcements soon!

(P.S. and if you can be bothered to visit Picture Meerkat's Blog and see his first post in a year, your welcome to do so. It is the second half of his Meelin tutorial, that is, if you didn't get bored of waiting for part two and have since deleted your version of Meelin from your computer altogether!)
 
 
Actually, the one year anniversary is on 21st January. Simples!

Hi Everyone,

As it stands, I'm expecting the theme tune any day now from musickat, Mr Jeremiah Pena himself. He is meant to be finished any day now, but I'm speaking to him online later tonight, and will hopefully be able to update you with more news in the next few days. 

As podcast listeners will know, being my usual, creative self, I have some massive plans for recording of the fourth movie, which would involve a really cool live ustream in which you will see interviews with us, watch us record and get behind the scenes exclusive. This would be recorded so those of you that can't watch it live can watch it after the event as well!

At the minute, I'm just waiting for news from Picture Meerkat as to when he is returning back to Meerkat HQ for recording, as it stands, we're expecting him sometime near the end of February, so we'll keep you updated as we approach closer to the time.

In the meantime, I'm told you lucky people (or unlucky as the case may be!) are going to be subject to a new post from Picture Meerkat on his blog in the next few days. Yes, he has decided to give you a little update to celebrate (as he calls it! I see it as to laugh at his failures) his first post in a whole year. I think its something like the 18th of January, so check out his page for more. 

He assures me he is going to start updating the website once a week (or so) with new posts, but I doubt this very much, so don't hold your breath. We have all been subject to the incompetence (hehe!) of him in the past, so don't expect anything!

Hi Everyone,

So it's finally here. Well, two things are finally here! First of all, it is the 11th of the 1st 2011, which means a lot of elevens! Everywhere I look online today, people are saying 'happy 11/1/11' so I didn't want to guys to feel left out so I decided to include the movie fans in this moment of madness!

The real reason for today's post though is because the new podcast has now been released, and you can download it from here. I'm really pleased with how it turned out, and the sound quality is a lot better than on the old headphone mic that I used to use for recording. Because it has been so long there was so much to update you on, so I'd appreciate you all going to check that out from the link I provided above!

One other thing, of which I didn't mention in the title of this post, (so its an exclusive for those of you interested in reading further into this post) is that another guest voice actor has been sent his lines! He's working on recording over the next few days, and so we now have two guests to confirm. Unfortunately, I only found out about this new one yesterday, so it missed being in the podcast, which I guess is a good thing because it means we can mention some more exclusives in the next episode.

Please listen to the podcast if your interested in finding out who the first guest voice actor is!

Hi Everyone,

As promised, we have a voice actor announcement for you, but I have changed the way it will be presented to you.

Kyle and I have recorded a podcast for you today, and will be uploading it in the next few days. In this podcast, the first of a number of voice actors is announced, so the announcement should be with you in the following days.

Sorry about any disappointment, but we want you to find out in the podcast first (consider it a podcast fan exclusive!) - just going to edit it now!
