Can’t have a final ZIM Fact without a ST:TNG reference, right?
You can, actually, but it’s too late to go back now.
Looka that artwork up there! Â Thanks to Vincent Perea for the beautiful likeness and for being one of the three people who read every single one of these entries. Â Check out Vincent’s work over at HIS WEBSITE! I am currently ahead of him at a Words with Friends game by ten million points. Â Vincent did all that shmancy artwork for the Misadventures of PB Winterbottom, so he’s pretty good at what he does, but he can’t match my masterful use of the word ‘fart’ for more points than he’ll ever see in a lifetime.
In case you forgot, I started writing these at the start of the month to coincide with INVADER ZIM airing for just one month only, this grizzled month that we’re now seeing come to an end. Â That ZIM was actually airing I can’t say I verified with my own eyes as the only things my television is hooked up to are a power outlet, a receiver, and a variety of gaming consoles. Â If ZIM was back on the air I didn’t see it, but some people have told me they’ve been watching it, enjoying it, and even not throwing up while watching it and they seemed liked reliable sorts.
I probably had more fun writing all this stuff than anyone had reading it, and that’s pretty much what it’s about – my selfish enjoyment of myself. Â Still, I wanna thank the people who’ve been checking these out tirelessly and even those who can’t stand this shit but have been enjoying the show all these hundreds of years.
It’s people like you who make me a bit sorry that I don’t have anything better to finish off the month with, having counted on getting something rare and amusing to leave you off on. Â The “rare” video interview with Rikki Simons, the voice of Gir, Â I’ve been promising over the past weeks turned out to be sort of a bust as it’s just the usual thing only this time worse. Â I searched around online for other interviews with the guy and found some pretty bad stuff on youtube, and this lil’ thing I’m uploading for you isn’t that much more informative.
Still, we had some fun, and I, for what it’s worth, this video is at least new, and I know some of you guys are just completists. Â That’s something, yeah?
Anyhow, thanks again, and have fun.
Rikki Simons and Eric "da fist" Trueheart in happier pizza restaurants.
Actually, a bit of info on the video: Â It’s apparently a fragment from a documentary about voice actors by “Ani-Mazing” Magazine, one of the many publications I’ve never had the pleasure of taking with me to the bathroom. Â The thing never got completed, and Rikki was actually the last person the filmmakers interviewed. Â That’s just what the guy told me who gave me this thing. Â If you ask me, AniMAZING Magazine should have stuck with magazines because the interview sucks as far as interviews go, and the sound and camera work is just awful. Â The title of this last post comes from something the interview touches on, that Rikki, besides playing the lovable GIR, also played the lovable Bloaty the Pig.
Anyhow, here’s the thing. Â Knock your socks off if it’s your cuppa.
Until the future!
