Anyone who has stumbled here before knows that the emissions are only occasional, that weeks can pass between all of us venting and frothing and arguing over a post such as the previous few, after which the entire site seems to go into sleep mode.
Apologies. As I explain elsewhere on the site, this is not the day job.
And this morning, in New Orleans, the schedule shows writing deadlines, one hard on the heels of the other. Sure, when Eric or George or someone else has the upcoming episode, it’s all fun and games with the internet. And who can’t do set coverage and swing an iPad in between rehearsals and takes? That’s the down time that is made to answer posts, to poke and be poked with the digital stick. But for now, I have to go to where people pay for copy, and where there is a film crew that will rightly stomp on me if the white pages for episode 404 are late.
Thanks to everyone for all the recent banter and discussion and argument. Is it my imagination or are a lot of us becoming better behaved at this sort of thing, if not actually a little bit pleasant? Feel free to continue to lunge at each other in every way that is argumentative, but not mean-spirited.
