Where the actual $!@&% has (either) Jimmy been?

In a word:busy.

Life’s been rough around these parts lately, but the light at the end of the tunnel is getting much, much brighter.  “A couple weeks off” turned into “two months of making sure that there would still be a That Ruled”.  Basically, I needed to take the time to make some money to keep things running around these parts.  For a while, it seemed very possible that both my place to live and the very infrastructure of That Ruled was in danger.

More good news: there are a bunch of podcasts that have been recorded, if not edited, that I can release in the coming weeks.

Jimmy TR and Jimmy D will also be seen in the relatively near future, at the very least, on Versus and KTHXDIE, respectively.

I am even going to put together some sort of a schedule (yeah, I know – crazy talk), so that you know what’s coming when.  Look for that in about a week or so (I have a new day job to become accustomed to).

I want to say thanks to all my TR Producers for flying the flag as best they could while I was gone.  Your efforts did not go unnoticed, and I simply cannot thank you enough... but I’ll try.

Special Thanks to TR’s new team members: Ben From Canada and Re-Animator Graham for infusing us with some much-needed new blood and variety.

Extra Special Thanks to SkeleTroy and NNTV for just plain pushing.  Without you gents, This may well be a very different writing.  Thank you.

Super Extra Special Thanks to anyone reading this.  You’re the reason that this community exists.  Thank you.

Great things are afoot, folks.  Thanks for sticking with us.

Jimmy TR

KTHXDIE 21 – Return of the Nostalgia Critic

D talks about Channel Awesome’s announcement that the Nostalgia Critic is to return shortly.  An announcement like this the week he quits smoking is not wise.

KTHXDIE 18 – Reboots & Remakes

Jimmy D discusses the cinematic phenomenon of Hollywood franchise reboots and remakes. SPOILER: It’s not all Hollywood’s fault.

KTHXDIE 15 – Demo Reel Versus Nostalgia Critic

D weighs in on Channel Awesome’s controversial business move, and the fanboy fallout that resulted from it.

KTHXDIE 14 – DRM/Digital Rights Management

Digital Rights Management – the music industry’s attempt to control the way you listen to music – oh, yeah, D’s got stuff to say about this.

KTHXDIE 13 – Vampires & Werewolves

Jimmy D weighs in on the new-millennium fad surrounding vampires and werewolves.  NOTE:  If you find that your favorite incarnation wasn’t mentioned, consider yourself lucky he didn’t make you cry.  Keep your “corrections” to yourself.

KTHXDIE 11 – Hangovers

Usually, these are released much earlier in the day… as you can see by the title, Jimmy D’s not feeling so good today… you can even see the stars circling his head if you look closely.

KTHXDIE 10 – Coffee

Jimmy D is sick of people ruining one of his favorite things – caffeinated goodness. The perversion of this simple pleasure must be stopped.

KTHXDIE 6 – Commercializing Rebellion

Jimmy D weighs in on monetizing the human propensity to be “different”. SPOILER: You’re not different.
