Thanks to CB Johnny for featuring my blog in his panel!
I hosted a lil’ hour long presentation called “You mean there’s MORE exciting Zim stuff?!” and it didn’t suck. Hurray! Footage will be edited and prepared in the coming week.
Eric Trueheart said that there was never a specific canon age for Zim to his knowledge.
Mystery solved…..kind of
I just found out from Eric Trueheart that after reviewing the story to the x-mas episode, some Nick execs brought up these criticisms. Because it was the last episode they were producing, they didn’t change anything, but added this scene to represent how they were simply ignoring those questions.
Q:Have you ever looked back at your old works and wanted to stab your past self woth a pitchfork?
I sometimes wish I could go back in time and smack myself, sure, but only because I love the idea of time-smacking. However, I usually enjoy seeing what’s changed in my work and how. It would have been horrible to have doubted myself back when I was making that old stuff as part of what makes working fun is actually HAVING fun.
I knew plenty of people who were so worried that what they were making wasn’t good enough that they tripped themselves up or just didn’t push on through to get it done at all.
I don’t look at any of that old stuff of mine as perfect in any way but at the same time it is exactly what it was supposed to be for the person making it, a person who was a giggling idiot who didn’t know enough to give a shit whether what they were doing was perfect or not.
Q:What happened to the tallests? When I joined years ago, they were so interested and excited to get OHP up and running. Now it seems they've abandoned the cause. It's really sad..
First of all, thank you for your long term support.
Seems is a great word. The Tallests are OHP’s founders. They’ve made wonderful contributions to this fandom while trusting in those they’ve selected to keep the process efficient and ongoing. We do our best to keep things evolving with the times yet also in accordance to the spirit of their vision. They haven’t stepped down from their roles but their influence over the past year has been on the private side of OHP’s functioning.
Operation Head Pigeons Website Makeover!
Good morning, to all of the pigeon headed boys and girls of the world!
We have a TON of new ideas for projects and such, as well as some cool new logos, banners, ads, and other design stuffs for our Facebook, tumblr and even twitter pages!
Please be patient with us, as it might still take us several weeks.
Also, I have picked a few people who I thought would be interested in helping, like Cassia, Mel, and Caiden. But we are willing to accept a few more people, if they are capable of making digital prints and good enough to meet our standards. Message us, or email me.
My email: email@example.com
I will take a look at your work and see if we can use your help.
Also, any writing, like summaries of what we’ve done, what we plan to do, and stuff relating to that will be helpful! Or even videos, or animations.
Don’t hesitate to ask!
We do this less as a way to put some of the work on you guys, and more as a way to get more people involved and get their talents noticed by other members.
Lastly, keep in mind that this does not mean that you will become a CB, but you will be treated with respect, acceptance, and definitely be credited for your work.
After all, that is pretty much how I started, as well as Anna and Johnny.
Q:On Invader Con II, they said that there would only be an Invader Con III if Invader Zim came back with new episodes, and there will be and Invader Con III. Does that mean Zim is back?
Wasabi Anime originally said Zim would need to come back because (paraphrasing here) they need assurance that a third would be a success. They explain it further in detail better than we can but the Kickstarter is the reason they’re doing it.
I don’t even know why we have Halloween anymore when I pretty much made it as scary as possible years and years ago! Seriously…give up trying to beat these chills, Halloweens.
Invader Zim rerun coming soon!
Good news, everyone. Nicktoons will air an hour of Invader Zim on Tuesday night. They are doing this as a part of their plans for the Halloween season. [Source: LocateTV]
I wasn’t sure if LocateTV was a reputable enough source so I did check my own local listings now that schedules for October 15th are available. It’s true!
Here’s why we’re pleased: Invader Zim hasn’t aired on United States television since April.
Before Project Massive and Invadercon II took place we noticed that Invader Zim was mostly on graveyard slots weekday nights and also afternoons for Sunday. That’s not bad for a decade old cancelled program.
AFTER Project Massive it went to weekday breakfast hours and weekday afternoon hours. Then Zim was moved to weekend mornings instead of weekday anything. Quality over quantity for sure. All good things and a sign that we had found success in our efforts.
Then everything changed when a whole bunch of shows were taken off regular rotation. It doesn’t seem to reflect badly on Zim or its ratings per se but it certainly was alarming and it meant we had to cancel a big mission involving bringing back the old “watch Invader Zim on ____ network” tags from Hot Topic.
Now you can verify all of our claims about Zim’s schedule history by exploring this reputable fansite NickandMore.com ‘s archives.
We do not know what Nicktoons plans to do with the show in their schedule afterwards but we are hoping the ratings will be enough to justify it returning to weekend mornings.
Take care, everybody.
Saw this pop up on Kevin Manthei’s Tumblr and found myself laughing through most of it and only crying for a bit of it.
It’s a medley of some of the dumber bits of music from the show, and more specifically, music used from literal sources within the show, like cartoons on televisions in the background or coming out of speakers in an elevator and such.
In general, the soundtrack for the show was of the “take it seriously and it’ll only make the show look even sillier” mentality, but if it was music characters were actually listening to or hearing within the show then it was usually way more idiotic sounding. One of my favorite things was to have Kevin sing along, actually use his voice in the pieces, to sing like a little kid would to some insane commercial they’re seeing.
If I had to pick any favorites here it’d be that heavy metal sounding one, and the slower one with the sad meows (Both of those are Kevin’s voice).

I am able to name every episode these are from, along with the character dialogue.
