Who knows for how long.

THANKS to those who did comment and support.

To those who never did...........

I Am SO Going To Enjoy Sitting Back And Letting This Happen.

So why don't I do comic book videos anymore? Because someone in the UK keeps reporting content. One of my OLDER vlogs just vanished (can't see it in 219 countries I'm told) Why?

"Hi Terry Hooper,
Due to a copyright claim, your YouTube video has been blocked in some countries. This means that your video is still up on YouTube, but people in some countries may not be able to watch it.

Video title: Not Quite A Vlog
Copyrighted song: Girls Just Want To Have Fun
Claimed by: SME"

Somewhere in the background the song must have been playing faintly. If I use a song I always put the credits with the video and then no problem. I'm told the song was "manually detected" then reported to You Tube and the company.

Now this has happened a couple of times and now it is in legal hands.  You see, You Tube hasn't just got a duty to protect or work with publishers of music/TV/movies but it also has the duty of informing its users what is going on and who is reporting what.

So, slimy little toad and mate, I now have ISP you used, your email and your name.  Did you really think you'd get away with it and all the things you've been writing about me (quite defamatory and in some cases provable outright untruths)? 

It's all gone in the file and now I'm waiting to give the word for legal action. Today?  Tomorrow if I wake up in a bad mood?

Time you were legally stamped on and not a slap on the hand -we are going for as much financial remuneration as we can get and then everyone in the "comics community" will be privy to that decision and your name(s).

And trying to get your friends to Friend me on my private Face Book friends and my family pages to see what I'm writing and doing -good luck with that.

Toby Jones To Join Cast of Sherlock

Toby Jones. That pushes up the level of expectation by warp factor 6.  After all, he literally stole a whole episode of Dr Who from Matt smith.

Toby Jones joins Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman in the fourth series of BBC One's Sherlock

"I'm excited and intrigued by the character I shall be playing in Sherlock"

Toby Jones (The Secret Agent, Marvellous, The Girl) is confirmed to star in the next series of the multi-award-winning hit Sherlock, produced by Hartswood Films for BBC One.
Toby will star in the second episode of the brand new three-part series, which starts filming today.

Episode two will be directed by Nick Hurran, who was Emmy nominated for Outstanding Directing for a Miniseries for 'His Last Vow' series three Sherlock episode.

Toby Jones says: “I'm excited and intrigued by the character I shall be playing in Sherlock..."

Co-creator, writer and executive producer Steven Moffat, says: "Delighted to have Toby Jones on board, bringing to life one of Doyle’s finest villains."

Co-creator, writer and executive producer Mark Gatiss adds: "We're thrilled to welcome one of our finest actors to the Sherlock family. I know Toby will embrace the part with true relish!"

Sue Vertue, Executive Producer for Hartswood Films, says: "Great to have Nick Hurran back after his fabulous work in series three, and I've been wanting to work with Toby for ages, so this is a real treat."
Promising laughter, tears, shocks, surprises and extraordinary cases, it was announced last month that series four will begin - with the nation’s favourite detective, the mercurial Sherlock Holmes, back once more on British soil - as Doctor Watson and his wife, Mary, prepare for their biggest ever challenge - becoming parents for the first time.

Sherlock: The Abominable Bride, which aired on New Year’s Day this year, was the most watched programme over the festive season with 11.6 million viewers and the highest-ever audience share for a Sherlock episode. The Victorian special was also released in thousands of cinemas around the world to complement the TV broadcast.

Sherlock is written and created by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, and inspired by the works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Sherlock is produced by Sue Vertue, and the executive producers are Beryl Vertue, Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat for Hartswood Films, Bethan Jones for BBC Cymru Wales and Rebecca Eaton for Masterpiece. It is distributed internationally by BBC Worldwide.


Next year I would like to get a table at two comic events in Germany and try to fit one in over in the Netherlands.

Just need to find those three events that are close together.

I would ask but no one ever responds to CBO requests so....

That's it.  Bye.
