I’m trying to get into the habit of posting more radio activity; a few days ago I had the pleasure of contributing to national news show Good Morning Scotland. The subject was the return of the Frasier Crane sitcom, which is scheduled to run on the new Paramount + streaming channel. There’s also plans to dust off IP like Flashdance, The Italian Job and Fatal Attraction, so it’s a clear opportunity for the studio to capitalise on a wealth of popular intellectual property. Link at the bottom of this post, last five minutes is the business end.
It’s also worth taking the opportunity to thank the many contributors and commenters who have made this blog such a huge success in my imagination. Unfortunately, as has been previously noted, there are a small minority who cannot control their worst impulses and simply do not know how to behave themselves online; I did not create this comments section as an inane chat room, or as a place for unfortunate people to attempt to sell and/or swap their soiled rags and clothes. These people know exactly who they are and I will act swiftly in future to stop such behaviour.
I can’t believe I have to say this, but it beggars belief that these same people are now accusing me of using inflammatory language towards them; I note that innocuous if colourful comments that I have made such as “I’ll smash your melt in’ and ‘I’ll crush your skull like a creme egg’ are now being taken out of context in an unscrupulous effort to make me look bad and discredit my blog. Such politically motivated, selfish behaviour should not be tolerated; I am keen to put the whole thing behind me for the sake of unity moving forward, and trust my complainers will see sense and feel the same way.
Thank you for listening to my message.
