Shite Update

The G&T testcard. Awwww.Gentlemen, thank you for attending the meeting. Now, let me begin by saying that it can’t have escaped anyone’s attention that things have been getting rather shit around here of late. It’s no secret that the site is on the floor. We’ve lost all trace of news, articles are strained, and updates are low. How many times have we used this quote again?

Nevertheless, I shall continue. The reason G&T hasn’t been updated as much recently is partly due to lack of news (we’re between DVD releases, after all) – but mostly to do with the fact we’re BUSY. Busy for a start with the Observation Dome fan film (due to start editing next weekend) – and I’m currently in the middle of a big redesign of the OD site, due to go live in a couple of weeks.

And after that’s done, us here at G&T Towers, to use an irritating 80s phrase that just popped up unbidden from my keyboard, are starting work on something rather special for DJXII. So, you can expect the odd proper site update from us, and continued news coverage, but don’t expect anything decent until after DJ to be honest.

So, in the meantime – hang tight. The site’s not dead, just a bit dozy at the moment. You can help by contacting us if you spot any news. And hey, if you want to write an article for the site, get in touch as well. Think we’re too harsh on VII or VIII? Then convince us otherwise…

That concludes our public service announcement. You may now return to your regular wanking duties.

  1. “Think we’re too harsh on VII or VIII? Then convince us otherwise…”

    Nah its not worth facing a wall of shit

  2. > Nah its not worth facing a wall of shit

    Piss off, Matt. We’ve just fucking invited people to offer views that oppose our own – do you think it’s a big conspiracy so that we can take the piss out of them? Mr. Flibble’s got an article on here about why he likes Series VII, and that was greeted with praise for the quality of writing and intelligent and mature debate about the points it raised.

  3. Series 7…Ya know, all the girls (I know) love Series 7. They said it had class. You have Gail from Australia and a gal I email who lives in Oklahoma….they both give 7 a ‘classy’ rating. Class???
    I want series 6 quality. Ya know…

    Lister dieing for Currie.

    Cat obsessed with his wardrope and girls.

    Stumbling onto planets and shite in Starbug.

    Now series 8 is shite. Prison is not funny.
    What plant were Doug and Naylor smoking when they dreamed that series up????

  4. I’ve got an “in defense of series VIII” article coming up. I’ll work on it this week, hopefully. I, for one, am not afraid to face the wall of shit.

    Also, I’ve got a nearly-complete list of every time someone says “smeg” in the show. Exciting! I basically just wanted the tally to see which character said it how many times. It’s far from fascinating, but I’ll donate that to the cause as well.

  5. Good luck with those tasks, Phil. I think VIII is probably the hardest series to defend.

  6. “Piss off, Matt”

    I was taking the piss you humourless twat

  7. yeah, I agree with you Matt, a guy who writes a very dedicated and thorough fan site for one of the funniest TV sitcoms ever is obviously a “humourless twat”

    He does have hair like a girly-man though

  8. “yeah, I agree with you Matt, a guy who writes a very dedicated and thorough fan site for one of the funniest TV sitcoms ever is obviously a “humourless twat””

    Me and Symes have a slagging off/love relationship. He knows not to take 99% of my insults seriously

    I STARTED THAT ABOUT A YEAR AGO

  10. The captions from Series VIII probably run him close, though…

    THE SMEG THEY DO!

  11. > I STARTED THAT ABOUT A YEAR AGO

    Finish it, fool.

  12. Fucking awful months for updates these past two months, haven’t they?

    I will try and do better this month.

  13. Am I permitted to contribute the word cunt here?

  14. The longer you leave it the more I realise I don’t give a shit and that the only thing keeping me here was inertia.

  15. Well, I think you’re a very silly man.

  16. Did they have akiosk on this versions?

  17. I actually have a theory about this, John.

    Perhaps the article slow-down has to do with Observation Dome. Since it’s so easy to post a one- or two-sentence observation and have people respond to it, there’s less of an incentive to write a full article about the same idea.

    I remember thinking I probably could have padded up my 1984 observations and gotten a short article out of it, but it was easier to just post a rundown. Also, I’ve come across a few entries on Observation Dome that I thought would have made very, very good full-length articles…but weren’t.

    As critical as I may sound, I’m not…I’m merely suggesting that, maybe, the simplicity and traffic of Observation Dome has convinced people there’s no further need for individual articles.

  18. I think that’s part of it, yes. I think I’ve done a few posts that would have made full articles. I’m sure it is for others too.

    But the main reason I’ve not done any recently is pure laziness, sadly – coupled with the fact I’m busier than I used to be. After TOP SECRET DJ STUFF, I’m determined to get back on track.

  19. “I’m currently in the middle of a big redesign of the OD site, due to go live in a couple of weeks”

    LIAR

    Soon, though…
