Blog job

Was rather taken aback recently when Dave, my shrimp pal, returned in an excited mood from CrustCom 05 (the annual Web Communications and Strategies Conference for marine and freshwater tri-segmented athropods), and promptly asked me if I "gave good blog". I looked him squarely in his compound eye and explained that although flattered, I wasn't that kind of pandalus borealis. I hope we don't fall out over this as he still has a number of my DVDs that I'm keen to retrieve.

Bloggy Allen

Sometimes it's good to take a break from your favourite film genre and slip the old brain into neutral for some mindless entertainment. And when I do, Woody Allen is my preferred writer/director, even though he hasn't produced anything of worth since 1985's Hannah and Her Crustacean's Exoskeleton. As with all great artists, Allen has that knack for writing memorable dialog that is just as relevant today, so as I boot-up my repaired laptop and guiltily post for the first time in over two weeks, I'm reminded of a line from Annie Hall "A blog is like a shark - it has to keep moving forward or it dies."
