Ok, so I think it's time I updated a little bit on "The State of the Flapper".
April: April panels and interviews have all been collected and are ready to go. Thankfully, the calendar has been updated and scheduling is back on track. Unfortunetely, my Friday reviews are going a little slower than I would have liked. Mostly because I cannot find a formatting that is easy to read and tasteful, but also because trying to get anything done on Friday that isn't taxes is just plain out of the question.
I may make it an "every other week" thing to help with my own scheduling until further notice.
May: I'm happy to confirm that Ileia, Pink Haze and Nya-Chan Production have been confirmed as interviewees for the month of May. Reggiesmalls is also a possible candidate, but I'm waiting on confirmation from two other editors before I can say for sure if he'll be in May or June.
Regarding PDFs/Digital Formats: I'm not going to lie, so I'm just going to say that they're basically on a stand-still. The girl that I had working on the formatting hasn't touched it (since it's a "free" job) since I last mentioned it to you all, so it may end up being me again that does the formatting, which won't be done until after the 20th of April (if not later).
Regarding Panels: Yes. I know I've been slacking on panels. It's hard to find "experts" in certain things that I really want to talk about, so I've been putting off a lot of panels until I'm satisfied that they're as good of quality as past panels. Plus, one attempted panel I tried had 5-6 people all say the exact same paragraph almost word for word. Not really an entertaining read there. XD The effects panel is coming, and a "studio" panel is also in the works. Can't really promise much outside of those at the moment.
????: MiMS interview will be held eventually. I'm waiting for a time when I can do a "culture" month with all the different AMV communities getting a spotlight. Chiikaboom has yet to finish her interview questions, so that on is still on hold until further notice.
Feedback: So? I hate to keep doing the same thing month after month! Please let me know if you have a fun idea that you'd like to see implemented on The Lip Flapper! Now that I have proper recording equipment, nothing is out of bounds.
Thanks for all the continued support!
