Wow! Hard to believe this community has recently passed it's SIXTH birthday!

Things have been pretty quiet on the LazyTown front for some time now, though  LazyTown Live! The Pirate Adventure made its way around the UK and Ireland last year, and while I've no confirmation that it did, there were at least plans for a Spanish-language LazyTown Live! to tour the United States earlier this year. (Anyone have any info, or see it for themselves?)

I have some exciting news! According to The Official Page for LazyTown on Facebook, LazyTown "has recently signed a five year period with the BBC"! Does that mean new episodes? We can only hope.

I'll be honest, I myself have fallen well behind in LazyTown news, but I'm working to fix that. I also plan to do some much-needed spring-cleaning (well, fall-cleaning) in the community, including a new theme, redesigned profile, going over the administrator, moderator, and user lists to remove mods who have moved on and users who are no longer active on LJ. I also just founded LazyTown over at DreamWidth, and while I don't know exactly what I'm going to do with it right this moment, I intend it to be a sister to this community and will cross-post news posts there as well. If you've got a DreamWidth account, feel free to hop over and join us there as well!

This brings me to my next point. All mods and admins, if you could comment on this post I would be very grateful. I need to know who is still doing their duties, who is still interested, and who would like to pass the torch to someone else. This includes the following people: razothredfire , tehsp0rk , zx2_152 , dreaminganita , notoriousmdc , and merlin55 . Thanks, guys!

I'm also going to try to organize the LazyTown goodies I have stowed away. I unfortunately lost a lot in a hard drive crash, and I don't currently have access to my backup discs, but I'll go through what I've got and recover as much as I can to make available.

I also want to thank enganchada in particular for her many news posts this summer. I appreciate everyone for their posts, but I have to say that enganchada has gone above and beyond with links to multiple articles, and even letting us know of a brand new song! Thanks!

Happy birthday!!

Yay for a LazyTown post!!! I was starting to think the LazyTown fandom groups on LJ were dead. Though, rabid Sportafangirl that I am, I haven't done my share of posting LazyTown stuff here ^_^;;.

That piece of BBC news is EXCITING! I really hope for new episodes, the series still has a lot of life and potential left. And then there's the movie that we've been told about for years now. I've also heard on the wind that there is a chance that LazyTown will return to North America; that lazyTown Entertainment's contract with Nickelodeon (<--boo hiss) will expire next year. The hope is Magnus will try to sign a contract with another North American television station (I'm hoping for PBS). I don't want him to forget about N. America and give up on LZT airing here.

This entry made me so happy!! Thanks so much!!

I'm still around and still subscribed to the community, and I still have an interest in Lazytown. However, I no longer have the time and energy to continue working on the community.

If you need massive amounts of Lazytown content, I have many Gigs of goodies ferreted away, although I confess I have not been actively seeking out and archiving new content for about a year now. If you wish any of my files, I'd be more than willing to share.

Do you want to be removed from the admin list, then?

And I'd love to get a crack at your stuff. Hopefully you've got stuff I've lost, and I'm sure you've more than I ever had. :)

Honestly, I don't much care one way or another. It's nice to be on the list in case something happens, but there's also not much point if I'm not doing anything, is there? XD

I have all of my stuff archived on various externals. I'll have to see about pulling it and getting it uploaded somewhere. Do you just want everything? Looking for anything in specific? It'll take me awhile, if you want it all. It's a really massive archive. >_>;

Sorry to sound nosy, but I'm wondering what kind of stuff is it you have? Media of some sort? Are they things you can't otherwise find easily online?

Hmm. Might as well go for it all, I think. No rush, though.

I just wish I hadn't lost some of the custom stuff I did a while back. I'm so glad you've still got your stuff, honestly.

Did you ever post any of the custom stuff? I saved oodles of things.

I'll see what I can do about starting to pull the files, zip them up into manageable rar files, and uploading them.

Like Razoth, I'm still subscribed and I still have an interest in LazyTown. I've been reviewing some of the submitted submissions, but in general I don't have too much time to do anything else here. I also don't care if I stay on the admin list or not; either's good for me! I'll still be subscibing though, so yeah. (:

Okie doke. As long as you're still interested, I'm not going to drop you. :) There's not been a lot going on so there's not been a lot to do as it is!

Thanks to Ana I was able to interview Magnus last week. I've nearly finished the transcription... and let me tell you, there is a lot going on.

It's just been confirmed by a video I saw on Facebook by Tomas Orn Tomasson of a stunt being filmed in the studios...

Actually Ana has already posted about the interview, it's the link in the post below this one. The one about Magnus and Julianna.

Yay for the UK, but BOO! for us here in the US! Not even Noggin (I mean, NickJR) plays the episodes in reruns anymore. My kids are verrrrrrrry unhappy, but what can be done?

LazyTown.com offers downloads of the first season episodes $1.99 a piece, including episodes that didn't make it to dvd. I intend to make a proper news post about this later today. :)

Six! Years! Wow!!! Congratulations to us!!!
I still have the time and the will to help, but as you said, there hasn't been much going on on the LT fandom for a while.
I try to keep an eye of things, to comment on the posts and such, but it seems to me there's not much more I can do to help right now. However, if you're planning to get things moving again, I'll be glad to help in any way I can!

six years is fantastic, and i'm glad to have been a help this past year.

i don't mind staying on, but the most i've done is approve posts, cause i almost never have anything to share.

i remember starting a Photobucket account, the basic one, for the Comm, but nothing has really come from it.

Well admittedly there's not been a whole lot to do this past year, so no worries there. Interesting idea with the Photobucket, too. I used to have tons of LT pics, behind the scenes stuff, all sorts of images, and I lost most of it in a hard drive crash. It'd be neat to have a place where all that was backed up.
