"I'm a real blog!"

No way! I was just on the Odyssey Scoop looking around, and their latest post was about me! It was amazing! They mentioned my blog! But of course you knew that, since you probably just came from there.  You can see the post here.

Mysterious Character

Okay, here's the deal. When your on the redesigned Whit's End website, you click on "CDs, DVDs, and More", and you look at the top of the screen. . . There's a picture of a red-haired man wearing a purple suit.  Who is it? You decide. (In other words, I don't know.)

Paul Herlinger, who recently retired from being the voice of Mr. Whittaker, was born on May 1, 1929 and died on February 2, 2010. Though they already replaced him with Andre Stojka, it is still a very sad day for Odyssey fans. If you want to read his obituary, click here.

I almost forgot! I've shown you Eugene, Whit, Matthew Parker. . . But I haven't shown one of the biggest characters. Connie. I've heard her called Taylor Swift, but I don't agree. It's only the hair. No more turtleneck. It looks like she just aged 5 years!
I know it's a little late, but there is a contest that the Official site has started. It's called the "Act like Odyssey" contest. The first place winner will win the first 50 albums of Odyssey, plus the "Lost Episodes"! The two runner-ups will win the "Encore" and "Platinum" collections. The deadline is March 31st You can read more about it here.

Finally, they released the summaries of the first 4 episodes from "Take It From the Top". They actually look pretty good.

The Inspiration Station I

Summary: Connie loves spending time in Whit’s newest invention, the Inspiration Station. But when a glitch shuts down the machine, her obsession may go too far. Meanwhile, Eugene traces the source of the malfunction to Matthew Parker, who apparently has been "fixing" everyone’s electronics, with disastrous results.

The Inspiration Station II

Summary: Whit is concerned about the Inspiration Station’s strange effects on Connie, but hopes the invention could be just the thing to inspire young Matthew Parker.

Storing up treasures in heaven

Summary: After nearly being mauled by the junk in his own garage, David Parker declares that his family is going to have a yard sale. Will the entire Parker family survive parting with their treasures?

Game for a Mystery
Putting off important things

Summary: Simon Jones just wants the hedge trimmed, but his son Barrett can’t tear himself away from his portable video game – until it disappears without a trace! Emily, along with trusty sidekick Matthew, takes this as a case for the newly‑formed "Jones & Parker Detective Agency."

There's a new look for the Whitsend website. That's where you can see the redesign of the characters. Such as Eugene. On the cover of album 51 "Take It From the Top" you see Connie cutting Eugene's hair. This is his new hair cut. Now he doesn't have hair in front of his eyes. Whit probably didn't appreciate Eugene walking into walls at Whit's End. "It scares the kids away. And it disturbs my exercising."

Lots is happening in the Odyssey world, with the new season coming up March 1st. Even the characters are being redesigned. This is the redesign
of Whit to the right. Did he just lose 45 pounds?


New blog! Hope this works. . .
