I know I haven’t updated Gremlins Online! In some time, and I can fill you all with fun excuses such as my homework ate my dog, but the truth is sadly much more uninspiring than canine-devouring schoolwork. (Though having homework would be quite a feat, seeing as I am a quite a few years out of school)
No, dear readers, the truth is that life just got hectic at a time when Gremlins news has been coming at a trickle, nay, a drop at a time.
So here are your updates:
-No new news, except for a Gremlins Online reader that apparently spoke with Joe Dante recently who said that it is unlikely studios would touch it, as gremlins wouldn’t really be taken seriously nowadays. (this is taken as rumor until verification, but seems likely as it is the same thing he has been saying for some years now.)
Gremlins Board Game by NECA & Other Gremlins Merchandise
-Surprise, surprise, nothing new of interest here. I did recently find an online retailer that has been listing the board game since as far back as June 14, 2006. So this nonexistant game is just kind of sitting in limbo, much to many fans discontent.
The Lost Gremlins PS2 Game
-I have a little more info, a short video and some music, but I cannot release it on the site until given permission from the content owners. Once this happens, the Lost Gremlins Games section will see a full revamp, and it will be a good thing.
Fan Art Friday is still kinda-sorta happening, but on a less frequent basis. I still plan on updating it on fridays that I get more fan submissions.
Videos have been lacking lately, it seems more people enjoy putting themselves and friends acting like complete morons on video sharing sites rather than creating interesting content.
Recently, I have had some ideas of merging Gremlins Online into a larger site that I have been in the planning stages of where it is a pop-culture/geek-culture blog site, but the internet really has enough of those it seems.
It all boils down to Gremlins news comes in waves, and unless we get a confirmed Gremlins 3 in the next year or so, we probably won’t have a ton to report about on a daily basis.
That said, I will assure you this…we at Gremlins Online will keep trying and will find those tidbits of info that you so ravenously crave!
