AIO News 1/5/13

     Well, it's a new year, everyone! I'm sorry about the 16 Days of Christmas, I suppose you at least got a few Christmasy posts from me.  But, I will now be starting fresh with a new AIC that will most definitely come next week, as well as constant reviews of Album 56.  As for the podcast and the USS Response, their fate is now uncertain, as I'm not sure I will be able to run the podcast, and I'm leaving SS tomorrow. But, as I haven't done a news post in a while, I figured it was time to present some... new news.  What I mean by new is that I shall be expanding on the idea of Alex Jefferson reporting, and I will put him in different situations each news report that have something to do with the news, just to make news even more fun for readers...

     Hello, I'm Alex Jefferson, reporting at you live from the Family Friendly Art Gallery, a delightful establishment run by the illustrious Mr. Glover Gillicudy.  Gillicudy is a father of seven children, and a good one at that, but he also is a huge painting enthusiast.  In particular, he loves portraits of other famous families.  He says that, "The purpose of me lil' art gallery is to educate our youngins' on the importance of hartwork, but present this hartwork in a... family friendly manner."  And Mr. Gillicudy seems to be succeeding in this, as many families have flocked to the recently opened gallery: The Washington family, the Barcaly family, the Jacobs family, and many families from the dusted off series known to all AIO fans as Family Portraits.  And what better place to announce the release of the original Family Portraits collection than in an art gallery filled to the brim with portraits of families?
     Anyway, in case you don't know, the 13 episodes included in the Family Portraits collection were released in 1987 as a pilot series to a bigger drama, a drama we now know as Adventures In Odyssey.  And now, for the first time ever, these episodes will be released from the vault and put on Disney DVD - I mean, AIO CD.  For more information on Family Portraits, check out Whitsend.org.  That's about it for now.  If you need me, I'll be looking at a portrait of the Lincoln family.  Until then, I'm Alex Jefferson, and this is... AIO News!

     I apologize if the "Family Friendly Art Gallery" thing was overdone, but this new news format will take a bit to get used to. I will have another Top 5 list tomorrow, so keep watch.  And, as a last word before I wrap up this post: It's good to be back.
     Thanks for reading!
