It's Time To Touch Base (And THAT Article From This Week)

There was an article published earlier this week with a very enticing headline that other outlets have since also repeated. I have not and will not post that link here, because the information in said article is just wishful thinking on the part of people who are, essentially, asking for jobs. As much as I support the creative endeavors of the people involved, I cannot and will not contribute to the spread of information that, unfortunately, will now be talked of as truth for the foreseeable future.

This is not the first time baseless TMNT rumors have been spread, and it won't be the last. Earlier this year there was what seemed to be credible information regarding a TMNT project that I did share with excitement. However, as soon as it was revealed that there was no such project in the works, I quickly retracted and corrected that information.

One of the reasons I created Ninja Pizza in the first place, way back in 2007, was because no one else was reporting news that would be of interest to fans, or they were similarly spinning tales of projects that had no truth to them. I have always been a one-person crew and my ability to provide updates has changed over the years. I work a full-time job and I train in karate five days a week. If I see something cool, I can share it in seconds through Facebook or Twitter and go on with my day. Versus spending exponentially more time rewriting the information and publishing it on just to earn maybe a few pennies through Google AdSense.

While many of you have expressed your thanks throughout the years (and I am thankful to all of you), many people also get mad at me for telling them things they don't like, or sharing information they aren't interested in, or expressing my dislike for certain things, and on and on and on. That's fine. I am used to people not liking me. And while I can possibly be a little blunt with my words at times, everything I say, good and bad, is said with passion for characters that I really do want to see flourish in new storytelling and other creative projects. But encouraging baseless wishful thinking just doesn't lead to that.

I hope that those of you still following me here will keep checking in and paying attention to what I do and don't share. If I don't share something that seems relevant, there's probably a reason for that. Thank you.
