Over the past several days I have been inundated with comments and e-mails and just want you to know I read them all
. I added my comments a few times in the comments section, but I do not know if everyone sees them, so I thought I would respond in the actual blog so that way everyone can read what I am thinking.
I really appreciate the e-mails and comments because I see things I need to improve and also allows me to clarify things which may be misunderstood and has also provided me some tips (VERY GOOD tips) which I will try and confirm, but alas, I am not a journalist so it will be difficult.
Australian LINK of the day (this one is for you Mel)
Australian Idol finals which is cool, but what is really interesting about the article is how much money the producers are making from the telephone votes and also states how much the budget for the whole series was in Australia this year. The budget was $10M which I am going to assume was Australian dollars which works out to be a little less than $8M USD for the whole season. In the last year of Friends, one episode cost more than that to produce. This is why reality television is here to stay.
For those of you in Australia, New Zealand, or Canada or any other country, send me the links of any interesting entertainment stories from your country and I will be glad to post them. Speaking of Canada, I got an e-mail from http://www.ctv.ca/entertainment to do an interview for their e-talk television show because of the S blind item. If I went on there I would end up saying too much, so it is not going to happen. Their site is really cool though and they have lots of videos I would love to see, but they cannot be shown to people outside of Canada because of copyright. They will let you watch the commercials (gee, thanks) before the videos, but not the actual video itself.
OK, speaking of links which I was doing here somewhere, I have been getting people e-mailing me their websites and wanting to link and such. I have been really busy this week with Thanksgiving and having to entertain and be a chauffeur but I will look at all of them and then add them to my links section when I get the chance.
