Updates!
~01-10-2011~

Hey everyone. Yes, this place is still alive believe it or not. Well, I am anyway. I just wanted to say I'm really truly VERY sorry about the lack of updates on here. I understand fans come here to visit and find out things about Michael and what he's been up to in the past, but also hoping to keep up to date on the present and hopes of possible peeks into his future workings as well, and I know I haven't been supplying you with what you're hoping for at all. All I can say is I'm ashamed, and I'm very sorry. No one wants to hear sob stories, so all I'll say is my life has been extra rough the past year, and I'm not disappointed at all to see 2010 be over with. Looking to 2011 with hopes for a better future for both my life in general, and this site.

I'm not asking for pitty, but as I said, life is really rough lately...but I would like to get this site back on track to the way I had hoped it would be. I could really use ANY help I can get from you fans right now though, so if ANYONE wants to say, send me a few pics they took of Mike at a con reciently to add to the photobucket, a heads up that he's gonna be attending a con that I haven't already posted about, a new show he'll be working on, whatever you can give me as help, I'll take it. As I've always said, I can't do this without you guys, and boy do I mean it!

As a possible addition to the site, I was considering adding a page for Mike quotes...both serious and thoughtful, and those of the amusing not really making any sense type. So if anyone wants to help me get that started that would be great as well! Just send me the quote, and if you can, when/where it happened, such as "this con of this year", for example...if you can't remember that's fine, but it would be helpful. I would put the quote on the page with the info you provide, and credit you as providing it as well (unless you'd prefer I didn't). This is just a thought/work in progress, if it turns out I don't really collect enough to make it worth happening then I suppose it won't happen.

I also need to get to work on updating Mike's credit list. I think the last work I have him credited for on the site was from around late 2008 early 2009, so I have alot of catching up to do. I could use ANY help I can get, guys! Plus to help out YOU all, I need to go back to the ones currently on the page and put dates next to them. But like I said, if you can help me, please do!

For good measure in a very horrible attempt to beg forgiveness for the lack of updates, I've added a few pics to the photobucket in addition to this update. Once again, I'm so sorry you guys, I know you were visiting hoping for updates and I disappointed you all. I'm gonna do my best to try and make up for it, but I really need your help as well. The best way to contact me nowadays if you're willing to help me out in improving the site in anyway is via my Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/critical.crittle
Feel free to pm me with any questions, comments, or info that you'd like to provide and it will be GREATLY appreciated. I love you guys! More updates VERY SOON, and that's a PROMISE! :)

Hey everyone! Just wanted to poke my head in here and say a few things, as to show I haven't completely forgotten this place! ;)

Thanks to Shae, I added a handful of new pics to the photos section, from Youmacon 2009. I wanna thank everyone for the collection of pictures we have now, which would be almost 490 at this point! That's alot of Michael! ^_^

As far as cons go, I haven't been able to find any other cons Mike has been confirmed to attend at this point beyond Mizu Con (see previous post for more information on this con) in August. If anyone else finds anything, please be sure to let me know and I'll be glad to add it here for everyone's information!

Thanks once again to all the fans for all you help contribute to this site, we couldn't do it without you! :)

Updates!

Looooooong overdue updates at that! God, I'm so full of FAIL, I'm reeeeeally sorry guys! So what has happened since I last posted in....freakin' October of LAST YEAR? Oye!

Well, let's see...all those cons I previously posted have come and gone obviously...and a con I forgot to post about too, which I'm really sorry for. Yes, Mike was at Ohayocon...where he apparently even had his own roast (that I heard he was late for lol)! I unfortunately missed out on this, but if anyone attended and has any pics or video clips they'd like to share I'd simply LOVE it!

Katsucon is coming up this weekend and I'll be attending, but apparently Mike wasn't invited this year for some reason, which is odd cuz he's usually there EVERY year. Not sure what happened there, but I'll be questioning guest relations about that one.

As far as any upcoming cons Mike will be attending, I don't know of any at the moment, but if you know something I don't know...please let me know! lol ^_~

Pertaining to other updates of the site, I've added a few more random pics here and there, some even taken by the wonderful Jamie McGonnigal! :) Also, I'd REALLY like to update Mike's roles page, but I could REALLY use the help! If any of you could help me out by making a list of things he's worked on since the end of 2008 (that's how freakin behind I am! :( ) and email it to me I'd REALLY appreciate it! Just please remember to put something in the subject such as "Mike's Updated Roles" so I won't delete it, as I get alot of junk mail unfortunately.

What else....oh yes! I would just like to point out a few things about Mike and Facebook.
~First of all...yes, there is a "I Hate Michael Sinterniklaas" group on Facebook. I actually encourage people to join it though, as even though it was originally created by an angry fan, Mike's fellow voice actors and friends have overtaken it and turned it into a joke, mostly sarcastically mentioning nice things he's done, making it sound like it was horrible. So please join if you wish to poke fun at the guy, and don't take the comments seriously, it's all a joke.
~Secondly, I've gotten several messages from various fans, wondering why they can't get Michael to friend them on Facebook.As I've told these fans, so I will share with everyone. Please PLEASE do not be offended if you try to friend Michael on Facebook and he does not friend you. He is a very busy man, who most likely gets ALOT of Facebook comments and friend requests, and may not have the time to go through them all. Also I've noticed he usually only tends to friend people he knows fairly well personally. So please do not take it personally if he does not get around to your friend request. He's always being pulled in so many directions that he just didn't get to it. Also, PLEASE DO NOT ASK ME TO GET HIM TO FRIEND YOU!!!! I do NOT have direct contact with him, and although I leave him comments every now and then on his Facebook and I'm sure they get read, it's not often he responds to them as he most likely doesn't have the time, and I understand this. I hope that everyone else understands this as well.

One last thing...our Team Mike member Victoria shared a video reciently with us that Mike plays a role in, and I'd like to share it with everyone! I've never seen this side of him though, I could never imagine Michael like this lol. Enjoy!


In closing I'd like to remind everyone, please join our fan groups!

Updates!

~10-19-09~

Major sorries for being to behind on updates! Attended New York Anime Festival, it was fun though the con seemed mainly focused on the dealer's room and their Japanese guests....which is fine but, you guys know why I go to cons lol. I got to see Mike for a short period of time Friday (maybe 5-10 minutes at an autograph session he was of course late for...come on, it's Mike! XD ) and talked to him for like 15-20 minutes on Saturday. I got to make sure he saw the site with his Happy Birthday page up, which he enjoyed....but it's finally down now, cuz it HAS been a little over 2 months since his birthday after all lol. But yeah, and didn't even get to see him Sunday cuz he apparently had to leave early for a flight, most likely back to LA...so I honestly didn't get to see him too much...but hey, every minute counts! ^_^

I should have mentioned this earlier, but Mike's officially on the guest list for Youmacon! Here's the updated upcoming con list! If I've missed anything please let me know, you can contact me by checking out multiple ways to do so under the "Original Team Mike" page!

~Youmacon
Dates: October 29th-November 1st
Location: Hyatt Regency Dearborn of Dearborn, Michigan
Website: http://www.youmacon.com

~AnimeUSA
Dates:November 20th-22nd
Location:Hyatt Regency Crystal City of Arlington, VA
Website: http://www.animeusa.org

In other news, the Venture Bros. Season 4 premier episode was last night at midnight and lets just say, my head almost exploded and I just know this season is gonna ROCK! Apparently though, there was an error with the airing for the west coast viewers....after the commercial break between the first and second 15 minutes of the episode, it came back just to play the first 15 minutes over again, so the west coast viewers didn't get to see the last 15 minutes of the episode! Adult swim is begging for forgiveness though by re-airing the episode Monday through Thursday at 12:30 am. I really hope that doesn't happen again though. So, don't forget to set your DVRs for every Sunday at midnight for new episodes of Venture Bros....but if you happen to miss them, adult swim usually puts them up on their site Monday afternoons. Never forget to enjoy VB! GO TEAM VENTURE! ^_^

Well, that's all I have at the moment! As always, please feel free to contact any of the Team Mike members with any pics or information you'd like to share to help our site! Until next time, later! ^_^

Updates!

As you may have noticed, we need to do some work in the facts section of the site for Mike, cuz I KNOW there's so much more I could share about him with the world! I did an interview with him several years ago and have been saying over and over that I'd get to typing it up to add to the facts page, but it has yet to be done. Truthfully, now as I look back on it...it wasn't a very good interview. It was very scattered in both the sense of the questions asked and the replies he gave...no offense to him of course ;) I'm considering asking him if I could possibly set up another interview, and I'm pretty sure if he has the time he wouldn't mind at all. So, if you think there's something you'd like me to consider putting into the new interview that you'd like to know about Mike, please email it to me at Crittle@sinterniklaas.com with "Mike Interview Questions" in the subject. Please note though that your questions are for consideration, and may or may not be added to the interview. I would like to have this interview ready by October or November, so feel free to send in questions til then!

There was an event Michael attended reciently that I wasn't aware of until it was over with, and for that I'm sorry! Michael was at a TMNT even at Golden Apple Comics in LA, and I've posted a pic of him with a fan outside the store into the photobucket! We have 419 pics now by the way, keep them coming everyone! :)

Mike WILL be at the Venture Bros. panel at San Diego Comic Con with Jackson, Doc, and James this weekend by the way! If you plan on attending this panel I'd definately get there VERY early if you want a seat, this panel is VERY popular! Go Team Venture! ^_^

Here's an update on upcoming cons Mike will be attending!

~AnimeUSA
Dates:November 20th-22nd
Location:Hyatt Regency Crystal City of Arlington, VA
Website: http://www.animeusa.org

That's all the convention information I have at the moment, but as I find out more I'll be sure to update! Until then, don't forget to sign the guest book and join our myspace page at http://www.myspace.com/sinterniklaasdotcom and as always, feel free to leave us a message if you have any suggestions for the site!

Updates!

I'm sorry, I know it's been awhile! Here's the news you've been waiting to hear!

Unfortunately I did NOT come back from Colossal Con with new updates, info, and pics. Michael mysteriously completely canceled on Colossal Con, and I never got a straight answer as to why when I asked staff members what was up. I hope that all is well with the guy, and that it was just work that got in the way of him not being able to come.

As for upcoming cons, let's see what I've got for ya. Here's some cons coming up that he's scheduled to attend....

~San Diego Comic Con
Dates:July 23rd-26th
Location:San Diego, CA
Website: http://www.comic-con.org/cci/
****NOTES: PLEASE NOTE THAT JACKSON PUBLICK, CREATOR OF VENTURE BROS, MENTIONED IN HIS LIVEJOURNAL THAT HE WOULD BE DOING A VENTURE BROS PANEL WITH DOC HAMMER AND MICHAEL SINTERNIKLAAS THOUGH HE WASN'T SURE WHAT DAY IT WOULD BE AT THE TIME, BUT THAT HE WAS SURE THAT IT **WOULD** BE HAPPENING. NEITHER JACKSON, DOC, OR MICHAEL ARE ON THE GUEST LIST AT THIS TIME THOUGH.****

~Southwest Animation Convention and Expo 2009
Dates: July 31st-August 2nd
Location:Albuquerque Grand Airport Hotel Albuquerque, NM
Website: http://www.swace.net

This is all the convention information I have at the moment, but as I find out more I'll be sure to update! Until then, don't forget to sign the guest book and join our myspace page at http://www.myspace.com/sinterniklaasdotcom and as always, feel free to leave us a message if you have stories, pics, or info you'd like to share about Mike!

Updates!

If you've reciently visited Sinterniklaas.com and it says that it's under construction, well...we're sorry, but that's because it's under construction! lol But don't worry, that won't be for long, promise! So, what are we up too? Well our lovely and talented Team Mike member vikkiverka is completely redoing the graphics and layout of the site! We were do for a new look I think ;) And I really think you guys are gonna like it! If you've visited the site and the new layout is up and running now....HOW COOL IS THAT?! I think it's amazing myself ;) With this new design, we've added a new page dedicated to Team Mike, our group of fans/friends that help to mod and maintain the site! Also, I've created a myspace page for the site, for people to join and meet other Mike fans on myspace and also provide us with comments/suggestions about the site, or pics and info for us to add! Go to www.myspace.com/sinterniklaasdotcom and join!

Well, that's all well and good about the site, but what about MIKE?! lol Well honestly I'm not very sure what he's been up to lately, but Colossal Con is just a few days away, so when I see him there I'm sure I'll come back with some tidbits of news, info, and pics for ya.

Until next time, Go Team Mike! ^_^

Updates!

~4-28-09~

Update time, cuz once again we're long overdue and I apologize!

As far as Michael in the world of entertainment, Venture Brothers Season 3 was released on both DVD and Blu Ray as of March 24th, and will go down in history as the FIRST adult swim show to be released on Blu Ray! As for Season 4, it is said to start airing sometime in November, though I haven't heard an EXACT date yet. This season will be split in half though, as in they will show a few of the completed episodes of the season while they work on completing the rest of the season, instead of making us wait extra long for the complete season, which I think is a VERY good idea, cuz I always hated waiting so long for new episodes!

Also, Freedom was released on DVD April 7th, where as before it was previously only available on Blu Ray! Now you can get it either way, which is great for poor people like me who can't afford Blu Ray/don't have players for it! ;)

As for the convention world, Michael will be attending the following conventions:

~Colossal Con of Sandusky, OH on June 4th-7th For more information see www.colossalcon.com
~Southwest Animation Convention and Expo of Albuquerque, NM on July 31st-August 2nd For more information see www.swace.net

Now that I've updated you on Mike, lets talk about the site! As you may have noticed, for the LONGEST time, our site continued to wish you Happy Holidays! XD I'm REALLY sorry about that, my friend who tends to help me with the site is having some problems and can no longer help me with the site at this time until further notice, so I finally got my friend Kyra (xmidnightx) to help me fix that. In other news, we now have a collection of over 400 pictures thanks to you fans, and I hope you continue to send them in so we can make our collection even LARGER! It's all thanks to you guys!

Also, please be sure to keep an eye on the site, because we'll be going through some changes soon! Previous banner contest winner Victoria V. aka Vivi (vikkiverka)has agreed at my request because I LOOOVE her work, to totally redo the layout of the site for me as soon as she has a chance! So, don't fret if we may randomly be down for a few days, we'll be back and having a new look soon!

One last thing before I end this update. Of course I love to get pics of fans with Mike, or fan stories or information of where he'll be or what he's working on and things like that from you guys,and I'll even try my best to answer any questions you might have as well. But PLEASE, when you email me those kind of things, PLEASE if you could put "pics-sinterniklas.com" or "info-sinterniklaas.com" or "question-sinterniklaas.com", or whatever the email is pertaining to with "sinterniklaas.com" in the subject. I get ALOT of junkmail unfortunately, so much that if I don't know the person sending it to me I will delete the email without even opening it to see what it was. And of course, I don't know all you fans out there personally, so if you have tried to send me something in the past and the subject of the email didn't somehow reference Michael or the site and caught my eye I unfortunately may have deleted it. So in the future if you want to send something to me for the site, please feel free to send it to Crittle@sinterniklaas.com but PLEASE put the appropriate words in the subject so I will not automatically delete it! Thanks so much!

That's all for now, thanks for stopping by and stay tuned for more details! ^_^
