Good writing times

Just a quick heads up -- the DVD of my film "A Short Film About John Bolton" is now shipping though The film's about half an hour long, but the DVD comes with many cool extras, including the whole of the CBLDF's "LIVE AT THE ALADDIN" video. I don't actually know whether it's shipping before Xmas from the various other outlets who sell it -- I think the early Amazon thing may be unique to them.

And I was delighted to learn (from Sheila Lynne, who sent me the link) that an Anglican spokesman is confident God is not actually worried, and will be "able to cope" with having George Bush, Hugh Grant, Tony Blair and the Beckhams arranged into a nativity scene at Madame Toussaud's, while a Vatican spokesman says "You cannot use contemporary personalities as the central figures of the Nativity ... And it becomes worse, if that were possible, if the people may be of questionable moral standing," he added taking, in my opinion, rather an unfair pot-shot at Bush and Blair.

Fortunately for the kind of people who worry that God may need to have a sit-down and a strong cup of tea after being exposed to famous waxworks, the UK is proposing a law that makes it offence "to criticise religious belief, practises or leaders". Lots of people think this is a stupid idea, including Lord Blackadder.

The writing's going really well, thank you for asking, while the telephone lines get worse and worse. (I hope this posts.)
