He-Man sings a song

Oh dear god.

Just to make it clear, I have absolutely no nostalgia for mid-eighties cartoons. Silly singing however, slays me every time. It's a weakness.

Completely off topic, but there we are.

James, I don't suppose you would be interested in talking to a bunch of secondary school girls next time you come up to London would you? Only, I'm starting a Creative Writing club at school, and a chat with the writer of such great works as Bob the Builder and Green Wing would no doubt be a great incentive for getting people to come. It could be a bit like that episode of Green Wing, only we won't ask you if you're married.

No pressure, but email me on meay@hotmail.co.uk if you feel up to it.

Can I take a rain check on that? Partly due to a sudden vision of tabloid headlines along the lines of 'TV writer uses website to get invited to girls schools', but also because I really need to focus on the book for the immediate future.

Writing groups are fun though - my friend Sonia and I ran one at Waterstone's. Lots and lots of coffee - I was usually quite wired by the end...

Sure, that's fine. I'll use another of my myriad of contacts to get a screenwriter. I believe my third cousin is the agent of another GW writer...

Yeah, but you might end up with Stuart, and I'm sure that would breach his tagging order...

When you've quite finished arranging your packed social calendar, could you please call me and sing the He-Man song down the 'phone to me as I don't have broadband and I'm feeeling extremely nostalgic for eighties cartoons.
I'll give you a fiver if you do Thundercats too.

Just looked at my bank balance. You may just have yourself a deal....

One of those moment when you look at the bit of paper in your hand and think OHMYGODSOMEBODY'SRIPPEDOFFMY- no, wait, that's probably right actually.

Nanga parbat will your dial up stretch to downloading some small mp3's? Just that you can find some coarse Thundercat language on this site.
It may satisfy your 80's cartoon cravings.

If you see an increased number hits on random old posts, like this one, it's just me trying to read your May 2009 Television Outlines posts from work but I'm having to google my way into your blog via old posts because your main page is flagged by my work server as "Access denied - PORN DETECTED!"

That was rather more complicated to explain than I expected.

james henry said...

I never should have put up all those porn videos, sorry FR.

james henry said...

FR - I've taken out a rude word in one of the outline posts, which may help.

Fat Roland said...

I didn't expect you to change your blog especially for me... but yes, it's worked. I can now access your blog again. Thankeee.

This is like talking in the past.

Yes, I'm picturing us both in black and white.
