On hiatus...

Dear listeners,

Okay, so we have some good news and some bad news. The bad news is that VGDJ is about to take a break for a little while. The good news, however, is that we will be back... and hopefully with more interviews and special features than ever. While we have fun releasing a weekly show, we also don't want to burn out... and we don't want YOU guys to burn out. After all, if you think about it, TV shows don't run a new episode every single week- maybe half the weeks in a year.

We'll still be here on the forums and on IRC, of course. And we do really appreciate all of you who listen to the show, have donated money, bought a t-shirt, left us a voicemail, clicked on our ads (when we still had 'em), sent us feedback, or even just voted for us on podcast alley. You make this show worth doing. We just need a breather. Until then: take care, guys!

Thats a dirty shame. You guys rock at doing what you do, and don't deserve this. I commend you, Zircon and Pixie, for your continuing dedication to VGDJ. You really do deserve a rest to sort things out. Keep up the awesome work! =)

I'm very sorry to hear about being snubbed. Considering what you mentioned here as well as in the past about your respective schedules, the two of you deserve a break (as others are also saying).

Rest with the angels for now - we'll patiently wait for more zircontricks-brand (zixietricks? Or just zircon and pixietricks, the Dynamic Duo of Podcasting?) VGDJ goodness.

See you soon!

Boo to the Project Chaos team for not showing up for their interview. Some people are so unreliable, unlike our beloved VGDJ hosts. Do what you guys need to do. Spend more time together, remix more, concentrate on school, take a tour of rural New Zealand, whatever works for you. You guys deserve a break, and thanks again for all you've done on VGDJ and OCRemix as a whole.

I'll miss the podcast and will be awaiting your return. Mondays will suck more than usual now, but I'll cope somehow. Maybe I'll listen to all the back episodes.

I guess this might actually a blessing in disguise for me...now I finally have time to catch up! ;)

I'm sorry that they did that to you, it's awful that they might just think it's okay to not just show up. Especially with all the work you guys do around your personal lives, to do the show.

I love listening to you both every week, it's really a treat, and I always look forward to it. But I also don't want you two to be frustrated, and unhappy, and to do the show when these kind of things happen.

Please rest, relax, and do what you need to do.. And take all the time off that you need. Us listeners will always be here to support you guys. Good luck with everything! :D

Rest assured, you've got a great amount of respect from your listeners. Sorry to hear you got ditched, but I'm left with a big question mark as to why, specifically because you mention you had already agreed on a time and place. Well, if they can't care enough to publicize Project Chaos, it looks as if you don't need to worry about it...

I'll check back regularly to wait for your comeback! And what a great season premiere it will be.

It's too bad that things aren't going smoothly. Your show is something I always listen to while at work, and I must say, I'm going to miss you guys until you return. Your commentaries are something I look forward to hearing on a weekly basis.

But you are totally deserving of a break. Take care!

I think you're the greatest. Thank you so much for everything. Good luck.

I'm saddened by this. Here's to hoping they're back soon.

Hmm... sounds like you guys are going for a rather long time. I think we listeners can wait for a month or two for a new episode; you VGDJ hosts can have your long Christmas and New Year holiday :D

I wish Santa will you give the nicest present this year! After all, both of you have been good, haven't you? :o

(one listener from Singapore who took the survey, yay :D)

Aw. This is really sad news indeed. :(

Putting being stood up aside, I do think that you guys need to take some time off, though. You deserve the breather. Both of you have been doing some amazing work for the past few months.

Before you go on a break, I hope that there'll be at least a videocast about MAGfest or something. I really want to see what goes on in there.

I'll be patiently waiting for the next update. Until then, don't be discouraged. As you've noticed, VGDJ has been the number 1 podcast numerous times. You've earned our respect.

Blogger Pixie &amp; Zircon said...

Oh, we'll definitely do some really good MAGFest coverage, but that's not gonna be until *after* the break, considering the event isn't till January. We're on break now, silly. ^-^

Thanks for all the hard work you guys do. I, like most people, completly understand why your taking a break. You deserve it. Great episode after amazing episode after great episode...you need a break.

Everybody needs to take a break now and then. And, comon, it's Chirstmas (month)! Everybody is runing around doing what needs to be done (and not done).

Plus, considering you said you'd cover Magfest which is January 7th, that's only 4 saturdays away!

I REALLY enjoy listening to your guy's episodes, and find it really really sad that some people just don't respect you.

I really wanted to hear a episode devoted to the Sonic ReMix project - It wouldve been one of the best episodes!

And again, thanks SO MUCH for all the work you do.

I have this happen to me all the time, and it is awful. I'm glad you stuck with the show to this point despite being stood up before. Looking forward to listening when you're back.

A few months ago, I had an extra ticket for Play! A Video Game Symphony, on July 27, in Philadelphia. It was worth $80, and I called someone to offer it to them, FOR FREE. He said he thought he could come but couldn't commit until the Tuesday before the Thursday concert.

Guess what? He never called back, and the $80 ticket was wasted. I never heard from him again. A FREE TICKET! I was going to mail the ticket to Zircon and tell him to use it to cover the concert for VGDJ if the friend declined. Instead, this idiot who used to be my friend couldn't even give me the courtesy of calling me back to decline the $80 ticket that I offered him for free. It was too late by then and the ticket was wasted.

People like him will never get very far in life. You, on the other hand, have thousands of listeners to your show and are admired by many. Don't let these people get you down!

I miss your podcast (wondered why iTunes was no longer updating the feed), but I await eagerly for your return.

No rush, though - Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year!

Hey guys I'm really sorry to hear that you keep getting the shaft. I started listening to the podcast about 2 weeks ago and I love it. You guys do an amazing job and I'm so totally entertained with the shows so I hope you come back soon. Keep up the good work!
