Get ready, here it comes ready or not.

One knackered Lardvaark would like to announce the imminent arrival of The GreatBigMightyStoneLetter. I will PM everyone who would like to see it before it goes off to Kevin.

I've incorporated our shared views into the main text, then I took specific direct quotes from you all and put them in at the end. The message is "signed" on behalf of the lot of us, but I've mentioned specific names too. If anyone would like their name amended (your real one included for example) give us a shout. If anyone thinks they've missed the boat - I hear you, Halfaery, don't worry - I can add specific names as you like.

And so I hand it over.

BTW I will try to catch up with all the goings-on around here in the morning. My computer's been sick. Also, Happy Pancake Day.

Thanks for your patience.

Has everyone got a copy who wants one? If anyone finds themselves without please let me know ASAP. If you are all approving we'll go with this, and I think I'll say that if I haven't heard from you by the end of the day I'll hand it across in its current form.

Halfaery and Alec (are you still with us, mate?) - the two of you expressed an interest, but if you want your real names on it I'll need them sooner rather than later. If I don't get them, I'll still include you both as you've given your consent.

Cheers m'dears

Lardvaark and friends

I have also sent my email to Robin Lane Fox to his other email address, as I got no reply from the first one I sent.

I'm not trying to show off or steal your limelight but I promised myself I'd send it if I hadn't heard from him in two weeks and that time is up now. We are trying to get our message across on all channels, after all Smile

Just wanted to say again how great I thought the letter was!! Hope it influences OS to either leave the film be on DVD - and put out an extended version (like with Stargate where you got the original Cinema release and the extended version in the one pack)

Let us know if you get any reply Cool
