Hey there!

I'll be making my first ever appearance on the Canadian convention circuit at ConBravo this weekend! If you're going, here's the places and times you can find me in terms of panels and events.

I'll also be out and about and will likely find at least a few hours to set up for autographs and selling copies of SMB3: Brick By Brick; but even if you just see me walking the floor by all means feel free to say hi (I might have books with me then, too.)

Here's how things look...

The Day's News 7/9/14

So. You've probably noticed that the blog has been a bit sparse of late, owing to me doing more news-item posts for The Escapist than for here.

Starting today, I'm going to try and change that by doing (when possible) daily summary-posts of news I've reported there - please, feel free to comment and chat about them. Note: there will be some "older" stories on this once, since it's the first:

Opie & Anthony's Anthony Cumia Fired For Racist Rant

Brandon Routh Will Play The Atom on ARROW

TRANSFORMERS Writer to Script Disney's Live-Action DUMBO

Christian Bale is Moses in Ridley Scott's EXODUS: GODS & KINGS

Real Evil.

Addendum to Tuesday's show: You think Michael Bay is evil? You think TRANSFORMERS movies are civilization on the brink? No. On balance, Michael Bay is harmless. You want to see evil onscreen? Rick Santorum is making movies now:

You want to talk about evil? A feature-length propaganda movie celebrating a culture's slide back into dark ages barbarism is evil. Agitating AGAINST the improvement and progress of a society via the lessening of the influence of superstition and pointless "moral" self-denial/self-hatred is evil. Advocating for ignorance is evil.

There are two kinds of people in the world. Thinkers and Believers.

Also, some TRANSFORMERS because it's that kind of week.

And now we start the clock on how long this is actually relevant. Ball's in your court, Warner Bros...

An Important Announcement About The Future of THE GAME OVERTHINKER

Many of you have probably heard the news over the last few days that Blip has been culling series from the network. A lot of shows, some long-running and fairly popular, have been getting the hammer for a variety of reasons, and I just a few hours ago learned that unfortunately ADVENTURES OF THE GAME OVERTHINKER will be one of them as of July.

Obviously, I'm unhappy about this. Before anyone asks, no, Blip has not been forthcoming at this time about the exact reason for removals and this series has been no exception. The general sense is that Blip is looking concentrate on the most profitable and entrenched brands as opposed to growing series like this, and that's understandable from their perspective even if it's a bother from mine.

I've been contacted (privately) by a few parties so far interested in possibly helping the series find a new regular home; but at this time no decision has been made and I'm exploring all options. What this will not do is effect plans and scheduling for the actual release of episodes so far as I am able. EPISODE 93 is 98% completed and should be ready for Friday or Saturday. My plan, for now, is continue uploading to the Blip Channel until they shut down my ability to do so but also to simultaneously upload to YouTube. After that... your guess is as good as mine.

I want to thank everyone who has supported this series over the years, and reaffirm my commitment to continue this series. This particular show is 100% a labor of love for me, and whatever happens to it going forward the one thing I can assure everyone of is that I will not be doing anything that will compromise the form I want the series to take. Please stay tuned to The OverThinker Blog for further updates and details.

I appreciate the ongoing support, and I hope everyone enjoys our upcoming shows - no matter which video-player they wind up being delivered on :)

Bob Chipman,
Creator & Host, Adventures of The Game OverThinker

P.S. If you'd like to help the series, the best help we can get is for you to spend some times re-watching and sharing the still-monetized Blip-hosted episodes of the show HERE.

Oh, and hey - PODCAST!
