I was reading my flist, when I saw news that new Toxic Avengers stuff was going into production. And then I vaguely remembered the cartoon.

Anyone else remember that? I can't believe they made a kid's cartoon out of a Troma film. I admit that it was one of my favourites at that time -- my mum forbid me from watching Transformers, so I got into cartoons much later than everyone else. It probably explains a lot.

Another favourite was Gravesdale High. One of the funny things about watching that after Toxic Crusaders is seeing how all the character archetype match up to each other. It's like every 80's children's cartoon had a blond surfer dude.

I didn't know at the time that its main selling point was Rick Moranis though... Wasn't there also a Little Shop of Horrors cartoon as well? Anyway, next up are The Hurricanes, adorably recorded direct off someone's TV.

Attack of the Killer Tomatoes was never one of my favourites, but I seem to remember the opening very well.

And... Bananaman!

Finally, Family Ness, the cartoon no one really watched.

I've been writing lately and have high points and low points on that front. Sometimes I look at it and wonder how I could've plotted and written something that awesome, other times I wonder how the hell I can fix it. Recently I kept thinking that if I can't get it published and if no one ever reads it, then I'm wasting my life spending so much time on it. I just had a birthday, got a year older, so that's been pressing down on me a lot recently.

It's the last day of my spring holidays and I'm back at work tomorrow in a new school. Any impressions will have to go into a locked post.

Wrote something for weissday, which I posted on Archive of Our Own. I haven't really been focusing much on online stuff recently, because I've been feeling kind of down. But after Sunday I felt much better and I'm okay just in time to go back to work!
