Writer's Blockade

Posted by Sir Max on January 20, 2015 at 2:00 PM

Long time, no see! I can tell you've been finding our lack of blog posts disturbing. Some have asked, "Has Sir Max lost his touch? Is he experiencing writer's block?" And let me tell you, good Toon, the answer to both of those questions is an absolute "Yes."

I should clarify that a bit. It's not writer's block, but rather a writer's blockade that I've set up around the Toontown Times building. I haven't seen sunlight in weeks! You heard me right, Toons. Grab your picket signs, torches, and miscellaneous pointy farm tools, because we're going to a protest!



It all started about 4 and a half minutes ago, but ah, I can remember it like it's yesterday. I was talking to the Toon Council about getting the working conditions of the Toontown Times improved - did you know that our blog hasn't changed once since the Daily Alpha Updates? Yeesh, it needs a makeover. So I ask them about it, and you know what they say?

"We'll get to that soon!"

To set up the blockade I just I went and shoved a couch and some ducktape over the door of the building. It occurred to me, however, that I might have locked myself inside. Luckily, I'm confident that you guys can handle the protest for me while I lay here and relax. Oh, and if anyone can throw in some peanut butter and crackers through the window, it would be much appreciated.

Hey, you know what they say: "Burn the buildings of democracy! Tear down the legislative! Buy more T-Shirts!" -- and that's precisely what we'll pretend we're doing!

(Keep your eyes peeled for more blog posts ahead - we've been really busy over the duration of the new year, and you'll see why soon enough! We're sure Sir Max's shenanigans will keep you occupied in the meantime.)

January 15, 2015 [ttr-beta-v1.7.17]

Sir Max... You never fail to impress me with what you do. :D

Ooowoo said on January 20, 2015 at 2:10 PM
I'm standing here with my giant picket sign that says"BRING ON THE NEWS!" I also set up a stand selling torches and other signs. Feel free to throw pies at the building too.

"I can tell you've been finding our lack of blog posts disturbing. " Is that supposed to be a Star Wars reference? (no copyright pls.) No matter. Can't wait for more blog posts soon!

Crazy Winky Cheezyswirl said on January 20, 2015 at 2:13 PM
Hah. I know the community suggested update is likely what's in the works at the moment, so I don't mind the lack of blog posts.

Master Drippy Gigglemouth said on January 20, 2015 at 2:13 PM
This is interesting. Is this gonna be like a new event? Oh and I am so excited for Bossbot HQ and more special event updates. Hope you can do well!

(holds up a picture of a guy picking something out) Electronugget: No, THIS. Bring News or Give us the Blues. Short, sweet and to the point. Young Toon: How about this? Bring News or Give us the Clues! Electronugget: You really want another puzzle, don't you?

Colonel Poppy Crumblewhip said on January 20, 2015 at 3:44 PM

Skipper Jumblezaner said on January 21, 2015 at 12:58 PM
I missed this last blog, but a really cool feature TTR could do would be to add new interesting just for fun tasks. For example, tasks that changed your gloves' colors, tasks that gave you big gloves, or big shoes, or big ears etc....

Great job, Sir Max! Can't wait for the new content!

King Cat said on January 26, 2015 at 2:16 PM
I'm sorry, but this IS getting a little weird. We need more blog posts! Even so, I'm sure TTR is working harder than ever in the background, so keep up the good work, TTR team!

Frostbite said on January 26, 2015 at 9:04 PM
-grabs torch and pointy farm tool- DEMOCRACY! WHATEVER THAT MEANS! TALK ABOUT THE LATEST NEWS AND NEW TRENDS! -calms down- Maybe I'm just over reacting, sorry. I think you should talk about the most worn items by toons and make it a trend or something. (just a suggestion, ur choice) :P

Rotten Donut said on January 26, 2015 at 9:39 PM
Give me updates or give me cogs to defeat!!!

King Cricket said on January 27, 2015 at 1:35 PM
I can only begin to wonder what may be in store in future time... until then, I'll get some crackers.
