ebonystarfire @ : Hey everyone!
As if you haven't noticed, unfortunately the contest never happened, because not enough people became involved. Oh well, perhaps I'll try again later, because I'm still interested in making a logo for the site to possibly put on tshirts, business cards, buttons, whatever, ya know? ;)
In other news, if you haven't reciently stopped by the site, PLEASE DO! IT'S BEEN COMPLETELY REDESIGNED AND LOOKS GLORIOUS!!! And feel free to sign our new guestbook too!
Also, you can find us on Myspace as well now, at www.myspace.com/sinterniklaasdotcom so go check it out and friend us!
As far as news in Mike's world, he'll be attending Colossal Con on June 5th!
That's it for now! :)

ebonystarfire @ : Sinterniklaas.com Contest!
I've decided to go ahead and have a website contest once again, which I'll say is officially open as of now, November 20th! What is this contest, you ask? Well, I'm asking you, the fans, to create a logo of sorts for the website! A catch phrase, a picutre of sorts that represents the site, something like that! Nothing huge though...my thoughts are the winner's logo will be used in banners and business cards that I can hand out at conventions I attend, to help advertise the site and spread the word! Think kinda like the logo Mike made to represent NYAV Post, ya know?
So here are the rules: Keep it basic. You can apply as many times as you'd like, though I'm gonna say no more than 4 times per person please. No more applications will be execpted after January 20th, 2009 so that gives you 2 months to work on this. The applications turned in will then be posted on the site, and the fans will vote on their favorite by emailing their vote to me. The one with the most votes will be the winner...and you will not be allowed to vote for your own application. Those are the rules....now go out there and create, and good luck to you all! ^_^

ebonystarfire @ : Just for my own record, and the record of anyone else who might care, I'm gonna be posting Mike's involvment in Season 3 of Venture Bros. But first...just so everyone knows, Mike will be coming to New York Anime Festival this September! Check out http://www.newyorkanimefestival.com for more information!
Now, onto the Season 3 episodes....
The first episode of the 3rd season, titled "Shadowman 9: In the Cradle of Destiny" had no Hank or Dean, and Mike didn't have any random background character parts either, so he was not in the premiere episode of the season....which made me kinda sad. Oh well...
Mike was included in the second episode of the season however, titled "The Doctor Is In", as Dean.
But then once again, Mike was not involved in the third episode, titled "The Invisible Hand of Fate", because it didn't include Dean (or Hank) and he wasn't asked to do any extra characters.
Mike was in the fourth episode though, "Home Is Where the Hate Is", as Dean. Also in the fifth episode, called "The Buddy System", as Dean and also credited as "Additional Voices" as well. He was mainly the voice of a little Indian boy, who says the line "Why is it so dirty?" in referance to the E-Den, and random other children in the camp as well.
Michael is credited in episode six, "Dr. Quymn, Medicine Woman" as Dean, as well as in episode seven, "What Goes Down, Must Come Up"
Dean has a very unfortunate part in episode eight, "Tears of a Sea Cow", so Mike gets credited for that. And Dean is also in the nineth episode briefly as well.
Episode ten "The Lepidopterists" doesn't include any Dean or any other additional part for Mike. Episode eleven though, "Orb", credits Mike as Dean and also "Half-Jackel"
Episodes eleven and twelve are the two-parter final of the season, titled "The Family that Slays Together, Stays Together" (Parts one and two) and Michael is Dean and Dean alone for both episodes. And GOLLY GEE IS IT THE MOST AMAZING ENDING TO A SEASON EVER! That's all I'm gonna say about that.
So, ya see...Mike got to do a few extras like, twice...and Dean really wasn't in all the episodes...I was sliiiiiiiiiiiiightly disappointed. I mean, it's called "The Venture Brothers"...it should be all about the boys. Hank and Dean are AWESOME! They're my favs! ;)
But...that's enough of that...and now you know! lol

We regret to inform you that due to a new professional obligation,
voice actor Mike Sinterniklaas will not be attending this year's

can tell us all about it at next year's convention.

An unfortunate and very rare event, considering he tends to do this convention almost every year! Sadness. Oh well, I'm sure he must be busy outta his mind right now, to have to turn down this con. Perhaps next year!

ookami_love @ : Anime Next!
"Voice actor Mike Sinterniklaas is coming back to AnimeNEXT in 2008.
His most popular castings as a voice actor are Leonardo in the 2003
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon and Dean Venture (and other
small parts) in the Swim cartoon The Venture Bros., Leo in Full
Metal Alchemist, Mikey Simon in the Nicktoons Network series Kappa
Mikey, and Mahad in Yu-Gi-Oh!. In the past, Sinterniklaas has dubbed
such shows as Twin Signal, Night Hunters, Magic User's Club, and
If there is anyone going to ANext? I would love to have a picnic with everyone and Mike if we can arrange it. We did that one year when Vic Mignogna came to ANext, so maybe if someone can email him and ask him it'd be awesome.
Anyone willing to help?

ebonystarfire @ : **Michael Sinterniklaas Website Banner Contest**
Attention one and all! We're having a contest! What kind of contest? Well, to make the site look super cool for the new year, and to show Michael how much we love him, we're going to be having a website banner contest!
What do you have to do for the contest? Make a banner for sinterniklaas.com containing pics of Mike and/or pics of characters he voices in various shows, and email it as well as a completed entry form to Crittle@sinterniklaas.com. I will officially open the contest and start collecting entries November 14th 2007. All entries MUST be submitted by February 14th, 2008! No entries will be accepted after that date! So, that's 3 months! You've got 3 months to make a banner and enter it! Get on it! ^_^
On the weekend of Katsucon, February 15th-17th, 2008, Michael Sinterniklaas has agreed to look through the entries submitted and select the banner for the website. The winner will not only get their banner used for the website, but will also receive an item special signed by Michael himself!
Please see below for entry rules and form!
Rules and Entry Form
1. Michael wished for me to make it very clear that he would only take part in this contest on one condition, and this is it. As we all know, in any contest there is a winner and not everyone can win. If Mike doesn't select your banner, it does not mean he doesn't appreciate you as a fan or all the work you may have put into making the banner. So, if you aren't chosen, please do not be upset or think that Mike doesn't like you or something like that. Remember, Michael appreciates ALL of his fans. And if you DO win, congrats; but please don't go around bragging about it to those who didn't win. Let's be mature about this contest, and not have battle of the fans because of it, okay? Michael agreed to take part in it, which was VERY very nice of him, and if we get into fights over immature stuff like this, he most likely won't want to do something like this again for us in the future. We don't want that, right? Right. **This rule is going to be STRICTLY ENFORCED!** Anyone who breaks this rule will not only have their banner removed from the site, but will not be allowed to participate in any future contests for the rest of the year.
2. All banners must contain a picture of Michael Sinterniklaas and/or a picture of any character he does a voice for. It must also contain the web address, www.sinterniklaas.com. Feel free to add anything else in there, but please be sure to keep it appropriate!
3. Please follow size requirements. Banners should be at least 100x600 but no bigger than 150x750
4. When you make your entry you should send it as an email attachment along with a completed form. Please send to Crittle@sinterniklaas.com. Please put "Entry" in the subject.
5. Please be aware that if you make an entry in hopes to win, you must be willing to email me your full name and address if you do win. Otherwise I won't be able to mail you the prize. Unless you don't want the prize and just want your banner on the site. This decision is up to you.
~Please contact site admin at Crittle@sinterniklaas.com or on AIM as Dean0Venture with any questions or concerns~

ebonystarfire @ : Major apologies for not posting in so long!!!
Just thought I should let you guys know a few things though, since it's been awhile.
First of all, Anime Next was an absolute BLAST as always, and I can't wait for next year! Otakon, on the other hand, I was not too impress with. They need to get a better hand on their scheduling, and making people aware of who's going to be attending what panel. For example, when you have "Directing Dubs" on your schedule, you should list which guests are going to be running this panel, because some voice actors like Mike direct as well, so they may or may not be attending this panel, ya know? Yeah, stuff like that.
While at Anime Next, I got to talk with Mike alot...and I got to tell him about his website! If you didn't know, I've made a fan based website just for Mike...it's still under some construction, and it's the first website I've ever made, but check it out if you'd like! www.sinterniklaas.com I also got the chance to INTERVIEW Mike as well, after the convention! Something I never thought I'd get the chance to do, and he actually took the time to let me do it! The man is AWESOME, and I'm so VERY GRATEFUL for him letting me to that! THANK YOU SO MUCH MIKE!
It's a little late now, but HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MIKE!! Mike's birthday was August 13th! ^___^
And in closing news, Mike has been officially confirmed for Katsucon of Washington DC, February 15th-17th, 2008!
And that's all I've got for now! I'm in the process of typing up the interview I got with Mike at Anime Next, and once it's typed up, I'll post it on the fan base, and surely will let you all know when it's up there! :D More news as I get it! Later!

ebonystarfire @ : Hey folks! It's me, here for another update!
As I said, I didn't make it to PortCon or ColossialCon, but I heard that Mike was very sick with a tummy bug and/or fever for ColossialCon from a friend that attended it as well. Poor guy :(
I never heard how PortCon went though, if he ever got better by then or what...did anyone around here go and could tell me how Mike was?
Anime Next is coming up soon, and Mike will be there! Check www.animenext.org for more information!
Also, don't forget about Otakon as well, Mike will be there too! Check www.otakon.com for more information on that! :D
I shall return with my sotries of how Anime Next and Otakon went when I return, because I'll be at them! ^-^ Check ya later!

ebonystarfire @ : Attention one and all! Another long overdue update! I'm really really sorry for slacking here. I sometimes forget about it, since I'm trying to keep 2 other communities and a website updated and stay in the loop with things on 4 different fourms as well...I'm sorry :c
Anyway, I just wanted to share a few cons Mike will be attending soon, in case you didn't know!
~Colossalcon 6 of Independance, OH June 15th-17th For More Information, see http://www.colossalcon.com/2007/ Althought they don't have Mike up on their official site as a guest yet, I saw on their fourms that they had Mike listed as a guest. If this information isn't correct, I'll be sure to let you know asap! I'm hoping it's right though and they just haven't updated the site yet.
~PortConMaine07 of South Portland, Maine June 22nd-24th See http://www.portconmaine.com/index.htm for more information!
~Otakon07 of Baltimore, MD July 20th-22nd See http://www.otakon.com/default2.asp for more information!
I won't be going to Colossalcon or PortConMaine, but I'll totally be at Otakon since it's only 40 minutes away from my house after all! Hope you all can make it to these cons, and if you'll be at Otakon, I'll see ya there!
No other new news to report at the moment, but be sure to check http://www.sinterniklaas.com/ often, as I tend to update it more then here...shame on me, I know heh.

ebonystarfire @ : Happy Holidays!
Hey everyone! Happy Holidays! I come bringing good news!
Mike has officially been added to the list of attending guests for Katsucon 2007! Katsucon is an anime convention in Washington DC, and this year it will be Feb.16th-18th! If you wanna meet Mike, I definately sugegst this convention! This will be my...3rd year I believe...attending this con, and every year so far it's been a blast! Hell, this was the convention I FIRST MET HIM at! Good times, good times.
For more information, please visit the official site: www.katsucon.com
Mike will POSSIBLY be attending NYC Comic Con as well, the weekend after this con....but that's a big maybe. I'm only saying this because he went LAST year...but he's not on the list of guests yet this year. I'm not 100% sure if he's doing it or not, since he's not on the guest list yet and it's the weekend after Katuscon...I don't know if it's too much for him or if he already has plans or something. It's right in the area where he lives though, so...We'll see. I'll keep you updated!
As far as Mike's shows go....
~Nickelodean will be showing a Kappa Mikey Christmas special sometime next week!! I don't have the exact day yet, but I know there will be one because I saw a commercial saying they'd show one Christmas special every night at 7...or 8 (I forget) starting next Monday and among the ones they mentioned, Kappa Mikey was in there. So next week between 7-8ish pm keep a look out for the Kappa Mikey Chrismtas special!! If I find the exact day out before hand I'll let you know!
~adult swim will be playing a Venture Bros MARATHON Christmas Eve! :D This being my favorite show ever, I'd have to say this is the best Christmas present I'll ever get! The last 2 episodes from Season One, then ALL of Season Two will be playing all Christmas Eve! WOOT! I'm sure they'll be playing the Christmas special too, though I'm not exactly sure of when yet. I'll let you know!
That's all for now! Happy Holidays everyone!

ebonystarfire @ : Hey guys...bad news everyone. Yes I've been watching Futurama too much. Anyway....appears that though Mike was invited to Youmacon thanks to the efforts of emails/other forms of requests sent to Youmacon by fellow fans.....he has been too busy to reply and unfortuantely won't be attending this year. A friend of mine even went to Anime Weekend Atlanta just to ask/remind him about Youmacon and he said sorry, that he had forgotten about it but would check his schedule and let them know once he got home. Guess he forgot again lol. He DOES have like a million things on his mind at once though, so maybe next year heh.
THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH FOR YOUR HELP though, it was great to see that the effort everyone put in at least got him invited, and I appreciate that!
In other awesome news, AWA also included something awesome for me, though I wasn't there. My friend ALSO got me a voice mail from Mike! How cool is THAT?! I love it! THANK YOU IVEY, and thank you Mike! ^-^
Well, that's all for now, sorry I've been slacking on updating this but life's been kinda crazy for me lately. No new cons for Mike that I'm aware of until Katsucon in Feb 2007. If I find he'll be at any other cons before then I'll update, as well as if I get any other awesome news invloving him heh. I won't start posting more news about Katsucon though, until they start posting the "official list" of attending guests...Mike NORMALLY attends, but of course you can never assume things. So as soon as I get the offical word I'll let you all know! ^-^
Oh yeah, HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYONE!!!

ebonystarfire @ : Oh man Mike....
Today was the premiere of my offical favorite Venture Bros episode of this season. Love Bheits. Yes, it was a Dean based episode.
There's this one part, where Dean screams out in terror....and man, it's the highest pitched scream EVER. It's funny cuz afterwards the character with him goes "I'm fixed,what's your excuse?" lol
Seriously though, I need to ask Mike how the hell he pulled that off. If he can do a scream that high NORMALLY, well.....WOW. Just...wow XD
Keep watching adult swim Sundays at 1030 for Mike in action as Dean in new Venture Bros episodes!
In other news, Kappa Mikey is now showing on regular nickeloden Sundays at 11am, for those of you who are interested but dont get the nicktoons channel! Keep an eye out!
I'm still not sure at the exact status of Mike's being invited to Youmacon, but I'll be certian to keep you posted! :D

ebonystarfire @ : A piece of Anime Next
Look, someone put this on youtube! XD
The story behind this, before you watch it...is as follows....
The night before, myself and a group of friends had had a *lovely* adventure at a NYC bus station. We, not being from around there...got lost in the station trying to find our correct bus home. Some acted normal to this, others freaked out, while others sat back and watched in amusement. We ended up finding our bus finally and making it back safely of course, but it's a moment I'll never forget.
Anyway, next day at the Leading Roles in Voice Acting panel staring Mike S. and Vic M., a friend from our group got a cahnce to ask the guys a question (the line was cut off after her, so I never got to ask mine sadly) and she asked the guys to do an improv of Leonardo from TMNT (since Mike voices him) and Ed from FMA (Vic). They asked doing what? I shouted LOST AT A BUS STATION in memory of our little adventure, and she told them that, and here it is....XD
Something I shall not soon forget lol
