John’s Newsround – Late/Sorry/05

Sorry this is, erm, “late”. Me and Ian QUITE LITERALLY spent the weekend shagging our respective partners. Yes, we have sex! Aren’t we great? Then we needed three days to recover, of course.

Sadly, I should have told Tanya to FUCK OFF AND TAKE HER LEAKY VAG WITH HER, and rushed off to do this Newsround, as it’s a bloody brilliant update from TOS. The main one being the launch of the webcomic. Ian will have a review of it on Friday when the last page is published, but here’s my mini-review: I LOVE IT. (And I’ve read it, too.)

In DVD Details news, we also have a rundown of the VII deleted scenes. Having seen them already because I’m great (I mean, sex and watching VII early – can you get more cool?), I will say just one thing: the fact that the running joke from Holly was cut in Nanarchy is a CRIME. It’s without doubt funnier than anything in the finished episode.

Lastly from TOS, there’s a reminder about Memorabilia (26th-27th of November @ the Birmingham NEC, people) – and news that you’ll be able to buy the Dwarf headknockers and Flibble glove puppets there! So, that’s me going, then. Official release of both items will be the start of December – nicely in time for Christmas.

But the main thing in the article is… Memorabilia ads from Danny and Robert! And here was me thinking that Coldseal Windows had the best ever radio ads. (Or Coca Cola.) Listening to them is just… just… weird. In a good way. And Smeg Ups! GNP, with these MP3s you are really spoiling us. AlthoughhearingDannyspeaklikehe’sreadingoutinsurancesmallprintisworrying.

A couple of other bits of news. There’s been another BBFC classification – and it’s Back In The Red Xtended, running at 82 minutes exactly. The seperate three parts of BITR come to 84 mins 59 secs – but then, you have to remember that two sets of opening titles and overly-long recaps are being removed, leaving time for the small deleted scene additions. I am really rather looking forward to this.

And really finally – the BBC’s Dwarf site has “updated”. Why not follow the link on there for yourself and SPOT THE DELIBERATE MISTAKE.

  1. I was actually really surprised OD didn’t have a running evaluation of the webcomic. I was going to start one but apparantly I lost the correct login URL…would you be a dear and email it to me Mr Hoare?

  2. By respective partners, I now assume you mean Lady ‘Partners’ as opposed to ‘writing’ partners which of course are yourselves…I suppose I should have read the next paragraph first, before
    jumping to conclussions…
    I wonder if the Beeb spot the mistake..

  3. I cant listen to the adverts by Danny and Robert cos by broadband at home is dead at the mo, and the work ps’c dont have speakers :( That mistake on the BBC site is funny, I wonder how many poeple dont realise and buy it anyway…

  4. Can you not get them at work, save them to disk and take them home? They’re worth a listen, particularly the outtakes.

  5. Yeah, Im gonna abuse one of the CD writers later me thinks :)

    When it comes to terminally single first year drama students*, who have no luck whatsoever in attracting members of the opposite sex (or the same one, come to that), you’ve not done yourselves many favours there.

    (* – called Simon.)

  7. Thats what you get for being a student ;)

  8. I’ve had about 50,000 times more sex since becoming a student than I did before.

  9. Hearing Danny and Robert doing something in character makes me want new Dwarf right now. Even though it’s just this advert.

  10. Yep, it leaves me wanting more…
    Love the out takes, kinda knocks a hole in the Dwarf V’s bad language debate :-)

    So, who’s the most professional, Robert, Danny or
    the bloke in charge of putting the ‘bleeps’ in?

    Fuck *beep* knows, DOH, it’s not as easy as it sounds…………..is it.

    Where does that happen? Cos we didn’t just beep the fucks, we chopped them out – leaving in the F and the K, but remove the middle and add a beep later.

  12. >Cos we didn’t just beep the fucks

    Please don’t refer to Robert and Danny like that.

  13. “Where does that happen? Cos we didn’t just beep the fucks, we chopped them out – leaving in the F and the K, but remove the middle and add a beep later”

    I never actually said it did happen…

    The “> Fuck *beep* knows, DOH, it’s not as easy as it
    > sounds…………..is it.”

    Was a poor attempt at humour, and was censoring
    my own answer (badly) to the “who’s the most profffesional” question…

    I found the out takes clip highly amusing, but I
    don’t think anyone could claim to have censored
    it entirely, and nor should they have to…

  16. I think we’ve experienced this period of time before.

  17. And that one.

  18. Hmm, my message was sent to a holding page that invited me to try again by pressing ‘post’. on two
    occasions the same page came up..so I err pressed it, 3 times seemingly…

  19. Someone punch him out ;)

    I think it sounds funnier if you leave the F at the start anyway.
