Apologies for the break in transmission

I’ve been away for the last few weeks and haven’t kept the blog updated. But being in Paris, Cannes and Spain hasn’t meant the hilarity from Mat and I hasn’t been continuing. Well. Our usual work, anyway. So I will try to catch up over the next couple of days. Cheers Wok

Good News! Week!

EDIT 21/1/07: Well I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, never believe what a writer tells you… according to Channel 10’s press release published at TV Tonight the show will actually be on Mondays at 8:30pm, not 9pm as I said yesterday.

One door closes, several revolve

G’day folks, Sorry I’ve been pretty much incommunicado lately. You probably all thought I’d shrunk into my hermit crab shell with the cancellation of The Glass House and have been hoarding ammunition and tinned food in preparation for a brutal massacre in which none will be spared. But that’s only half-true. In fact I’ve had […]

New look Empire; same old crap

Hi all, You might have noticed the Media Empire layout’s a bit changed now. The blog’s moved over from running on spam-magnet bBlog to WordPress.
