New Feature Announcement.

20130501-234219.jpg

Hello my blogging chums! Apologies to many of you for my recent absence but I will be paying more frequents visits again very soon. There have been many reasons why I’ve had to take a break: Namely, my dear wife and beautiful kids; my new 10 week old puppy; my work and the course I’m studying for; escaping to the hills and building a home there and also my – out of control – Scottish drinking habits 😉 Most importantly for you bloggers, though, I’m aware that a lot of you are pining over the temporary hiatus of my running feature Tuesday’s Trivia Tidbits. Fear not! As there has been another good reason for me taking a break.
I’ve had another little idea that I’ve struggled to get off the ground due to time constraints and now that some time has been freed up, I’ve been able to do a little work on it.

I won’t keep you in suspense for too long as the first one will go up tomorrow and it should feature at least once a month (or more frequently, depending on demand) so that Trivia Tidbits can return to it’s usual weekly slot.

More info, I hear you say?

Sshhh! There, there! Okay, then…

Basically, it’s my version of Classic Scene’s from cinema. I notice that other bloggers do these types of posts but my intention is to provide it a little differently and do it in true transcript form with the added bonus of an accompanying video clip, wherever possible. As an avid reader of screenplays, I always find that the words from a scene can really stick in your head and jump off the page and that’s as good a reason as any to share some of my favourites with you. For anyone that shares this enthusiasm with me, then my new Classic Scene’s feature should appeal to you too. Hope you enjoy it! 🙂

    • Cheers Chris! I don’t think anyone else is doing it at present, so it’s a different way of sharing my thoughts on good dialogue and classic scene’s without muscling in on a similar idea.

  11. Sounds good brother. I hoped you were going to be recreating Trainspotting word for word and filming it, but this could still be good 😉

  12. Sounds good! Adding new features that aren’t reviews always seem like a good thing for a blog, I should think about some for myself 😉

    • Cheers Ewan. You should add a little something. It mixes it up a bit and can sometimes get most of the traffic. My Trivia posts are the most successful part of my blog. It allows a little more diversity and can encourage people to hang around more often. Not to mention, it gives your blog that little personal touch.

    • It’s not as catchy as TTT but it’s something that appeals to me and hopefully to others. Should be getting posted in about half an hour. You’ll find out then, if it’s for you or not.

  16. Look forward to checking out that new feature, especially now that I see that it is Reservoir Dogs.

    So are you building a castle or hut made out of peat?

    • The first post of the feature is now up Adam. The wait is over 😉

      Haha! I’m not building it out of peat but I would like it to be a castle. Its a complete wooden structure which is actually nearly finished and completely habitable. Just building an extension at the moment to realise it’s full castle potential. 😉

    • Thanks again Georgina. I’m busy as hell over the coming weeks so, I’ll be a bit quieter than usual. I totally understand your taking time off. It must be done sometimes. My first post on the new feature is up already. Hope you like it.
