Spike

I've noticed a significant increase in traffic on this blog today. I don't recall talking about free sex, teenagers go wild or big n' bouncy so I'm presuming I've been linked to a much more popular site rather than it being random searches.

If so, my thanks and I hope that any new readers get something from it. And feel free to ask any questions.

Your blog was mentioned on Shooting people today:

"I had to write about English Dave because his blog is so raw and honest (and anonymous) that it always strikes a chord and usually hits on exactly what's annoying me right now.

His 1st April blog about the 'baby script ed' and the clueless producer had me in tears (though not the kind of tears that equate to drama), and also the 28th March blog about prodcos asking you to do a rush job on a script because it's urgent and then not bothering to read it for a month or two, or just generally taking years to reply even when they've solicited YOU.

What business is so badly run that it takes two months to make a decision? Is it that they're generally clueless or just that they have zero respect for writers? You have to wonder.

Anyway, bookmark English Dave. A refreshing change from the daily smell of bullshit: http://wasitsomethingiwrote.blogspot.com/"

You're a refreshing change, apparently.

My thanks Phil, and to Shooting People whom I would plug shamelessly if I knew how to. Is it a spin off of Murder Inc? I may need their services for several producers I have in mind.

I kid. I know enough to google. Shooting People seems like a great indie film resource. And thanks for the mention. Telling it like it is is the only way I know, hence the anonymity!

Lishy do you ever worry that 'they' might recognise you?

English Dave said...

Sometimes it does, potty. But I feel I should try to do my bit for writers, if that is what I am doing, rather than promulgating the myth that most of those involved with production actually know anything about entertainment. And the bottom line is that is what writers do. Entertain.

So Mr. ED...shouldn't this be incentive for you to fire up that old sidebar and get some links a happening?

Or click the 'links to this post' function in the template/layout so new (and old) fans can link to individual (and always entertaining) posts?

You can only play the internets fool for so long, my friend.

Just sayin'...

Will,I truely am an internet fool. Sidebar and template layout are things I neither understand or want to think about.

Hi, Lishy. I'm one of your new readers via Shooting People. It's all gone quiet over there!

I've been reading all your back blogs till last October. All I can say is keep 'em comin' mate. I'm learning lots and having a laugh.

Only potty calls me Lishy cos she is cyber hot.

I know ED sounds like Erectile Disfunction but none the less it is my preferred nome de plume! lol
