    Woolleybeans wrote a new blog: "Handling Criticism. ".
       https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MJNXNIPlsSY&feature=youtu.beThis reading really speaks to me and my reactions to criticism. I thought is might resonate with a few other people, too.

    Daedalus
    "Daedalus" commented on Tony's Blog "Film Clichés that are just plain Wrong".
    @Alan and Whisks - apparently there's a single sound effect of a creaking door that's used in just about every film, and has been more or less as long as there have been talkies. It's a sort of industry in-joke I gather. Listen out for it - every ...

    @Gerry - apparently in '300', the abdominal muscles of the titular Spartans were enhanced digitally in post production!

    Overwhelming, engulfing October comp entry. Poor old Malestrom, poor old engineer. Nice one.

    The clock on the wall never stops. I look around a year after this time last year and a whole pile of mates are gone. Must be an age thing. I remember a few bad times in the Forces but I had that youthful sense of timelessness to protect me. It ...

    4 A.M. RAIN I can see my breath as it hits the cold night air, people walking past me never stop to stare. Lying in a door way, I try to get some sleep. But I'm so very hungry and I can't feel my feet. I see you in the evening as you run to ...

    Only just caught up with this. Appearance-ism (1): black men can have dark faces but black women must have lighter faces - very depressing, I'd imagine, for most black women. (By the way, when I lived in Zimbabwe, there were loads of skin-lightening ...

    Seagreen Apparently, 'Would you like a small glass or large glass of wine?' is a legitimate question and I shouldn't have laughed.

      Woolleybeans Sounds like the sort of question where you stare blankly for a moment, until sure you have their attention, and then laugh in the most sarcastic way possible.

      Seagreen I wasn't sure what I wanted. Do you think I was wrong to order wine, sherry and Baileys all at once?

      AlanP I once defined the rim of a glass as representing the point to stop pouring. But I was younger then.

    Hulloo Al! Strangely... no... :D It was inspired by a throw-away comment made by another incidental character in a different sci-fi piece I was writing... plus an over-exuberant imagination reading New Scientist & BBC Focus magazines! :) It's nice ...

    The voice style does seem to polarize opinion at the moment, Stephen. It is my natural writing style I think, if you consider I just wrote without constraint. I have in mind that "flippant" is a negative style so I'll look it up and see how to ...
