My Deepest Apologies...

Alright. Dear loyal followers. (Ok. That's probably a bit strong. XD) I am here today to finally announce that a lot has kind of been going on, on my end of things. That isn't to say I have forgotten my projects or won't continue work on them... it just means I've slowed down... (x__X What else is new?)
I wouldn't argue if anyone would call me borderline incompetent. I've been pretty frustrated that I haven't been able to do as much with my stuff. But... some decisions have been made to hopefully speed things up and if someone would be so kind as to offer advice where needed, it's plenty welcome.
To those who have been trying to reach me, I'm very, very sorry if I haven't been getting back to you. I intend to pick up now and see what I can do.
Phantom Cat: I have decided that since a recast for everyone and a script revamp is in order, this will become my last priority for now. I would like to work on this script, perhaps as a collaboration. I will see what I can do to get this project rolling again... eventually.
Toad Patrol - Shank's Story: I still want to put some time into further designs and getting good at them. I already have Flash 8 and have been working on some very basic art... as well as some very brief (and simple) animations. There will be a lot of extras in the first episode so I will need to at least be able to improvise those... even if they're temporary designs. As the episodes progress, it should be easier because there won't be as many extras to worry about. So this will take its time coming along. My apologies to those who are waiting so eagerly to see how this will turn out. I will show some finalized design progress soon!
Pokémon, The Eighth Movie Fandub: My first priority work right now. For a while I was looking for a new program to dub this in since I have decided that I want to remix it from scratch. (I mixed it initially in like... 2005-2006 and am NOT happy with the results.) Since my mixing has improved, I want it to really reflect in this... and because I've taken so long with it, I want that much more for people to be impressed by the results.
I have attempted Adobe Premiere Pro but my computer doesn't have the requirements to even run the most basic parts of that program. I have also heard that Sony Vegas 6 and Ulead VideoStudio are good. I have tried Sony Vegas 6... but I can't seem to figure out the simplest way to go about anything with it. If anyone can tell me how to cut apart video clips (or trim or whatever the term would be) then please do. I should be able to figure out the rest (more or less) from there. I have also tried Ulead but it lags very badly. I don't know if it's because I'm running BitComet but needless to say, when I was running what I could of Sony Vegas 6, it wasn't lagging nearly as much. Any information/help would be amazing.
Detective Conan Radioplay: Since discovering my inconsistancy in the story line some time ago, I have been hesitating to piss off the fans of this series' community... but since this is a practice project to improve my mixing and make it the best it can be, I will continue it until the end regardless because I expect my future projects to be much better. Hopefully, I will still draw some fans of my writing and the voice actors will be patient with me.
Troidzone: The only main reason work on this has been so slow is because I've been hesitating to screw the mixing. I still don't feel practiced enough... that and my priority as of late has been into my movie dub which goes back much further than this. However, while that's no excuse... this is an Original work which I intend to put as much time and effort into as I possibly can. I have also been considering rewriting some of the scripts. The only reason I think I'm not going to is because I also intend to do a series version for a pitch... ;D Don't want things TOO consistant... I want some surprises if ever that should happen.
Tails' Story: I have been trying to get around to reviewing lines for a while... since my priorities are elsewhere, I've been slow. D= Sorry. I intend to get back to work on reviewing and sending out redoes/information very, very soon!
Tanabi and Rox: While I continue work on my Toad Patrol project, I intend to use that as inspiration to go back to designing for this and making a more consistant design. I also hope to finish the script sometime sooner than later... but for now, this remains rather low on the priority list.
Welcome Back, Pinocchio: I've been putting very little thought into this one, I will admit. But I've decided that I will go through with my plans... only once the video program is functioning and I can work it. Hopefully, the Pokémon movie fandub will be finished sooner than later so I'll have a bigger motivation boost to put some work into this.
Again, if anyone would like to give their input. It is welcomed.
Take care and please, all I ask if your continued patience.
Take care all!
