John’s Roundup – 18/11/05 News Posted by John Hoare on 18th November 2005, 23:36 Pffft. After all the excitement of the VII DVD, not much is going on at the moment. A few little snippets to keep us going, then; and there’s a site update later on… TOS: Just one update to TOS this week. Basically: 47,000 copies of VII sold in first week; VII Film Cells will now go on general release on December 1st instead of being exclusive to Argos; and the planned Australian calendar is now cancelled due to people being CUNTS – but the UK one is fine. And IMPORTABLE. LLEWELLYN DVD: Remember Robert’s DVD project, “a sizzling comedy documentary which has been brewing away in the Llewnie brain for years… a fantasy that could so easily be true”? Well, he’s recently posted in his guestbook and told us that its halfway through shooting. Excellent – I really can’t wait for this. (Coming early 2006.) And he also has some ideas about another DVD: ” I already have another planned and I have been toying with the idea of issuing shares in production costs so I can do a better one. So, small investors, keep an eye on the projects coming up.” Wow. Although I’m more interested in the fact that somebody on there referring to the site thinks it takes “years of programming to do something this well”. YEAH RIGHT OF COURSE YES. I’d have read more of the guestbook, as I’ve not read it in a while, but I was limited to the last ten pages. Stunningly well designed, I’m sure you’ll agree. Must have taken them years. MASSIVE MACHINES: There’s also a new Massive Machines entry over on Chris Barrie’s site. And there’s still no way of reading previous entries. WELL DONE. God, I’m a cunt. FANSITES: Slipping almost unnoticed onto the web is Garbage World’s latest article, about, amongst other things, technological singularities. You’ll have to ask Austin – he does all that stupid sciencey brainbox type stuff. Cappsy’s Stinky Twat has updated with a few more wallpapers – and don’t forget his VII review too. Speaking of which, Channel 27 also has a review up – and also reports that Craig and his wife are trying for a 3rd child. The image of Craig and a copy of Razzle is now permanently etched into my skull. And MOST IMPORTANTLY, don’t forget to check out The Movie: Yeah, No, Yeah, No extras over on Observation Dome. Although I suspect the six people who are interested will have already watched them all, having been the ones who created them. Look, I just did a funny! AND FINALLY: I suggest you all buy this. Now. No excuses.
