We have our first Hollywood endorsement!

#1 Post by AYBG » Sat Aug 21, 2010 2:03 am

Jesse Reid, from a little film I'm barely familiar with called WATCHMEN, has just included the twitter account in a Follow Friday recommendation, with a direct link to this here site - presumably indicating that he approves! Wahey!

Is that why we've got so many newbies? I must admit Twitter speak beats me...

Nah, Jesse's twitter page isn't very publicised. I just really like the fact that of his own accord he found the site and likes it enough to share.

Aaaand we have another endorsement. My favourite musician, Ben Folds, has been doing a lot of video chats recently with hundreds of fans sending in messages constantly. I was lucky enough to get about a dozen responses from him, and I happened to be signed in via twitter so my username was "fmuk". He tried to pronounce it - struggled and failed. :D
Apparently he's going to upload snippets to youtube. I pray to all things awesome that that includes that bit - it'd make a hellava video on the front-site!!

Forgot to add that Rove McManus, Aussie comedian/talk show host, namedropped me/us a bunch of times in one of the last chats.

Today, I told Ben that he pronounced it wrong the other day, and reading it out he pronounced it "fuckmilk" this time :D
