You're in a desert, walking along in the sand when all of a sudden you look down and see a tortoise. It's crawling toward you. You reach down and flip the tortoise over on its back. The tortoise lays on its back, its belly baking in the hot sun, beating its legs trying to turn itself over. But it can't. Not without your help. But you're not helping. Why is that, Ictus?
Shane, I love you man, but what the hell is this bullshit?
What happened at your heat with the voting slips was absolutely shitty, and you're absolutely right to raise it with the organisers. However, Johnathan has handled it brilliantly, and the tone of your posts is way out of line. There's always a way to raise these things constructively without being a dick.
Johnathan listened, talked to his volunteers, and took steps to make sure it doesn't happen again. What more can he do short of time travel?
"Brush it off so lightly with a little spin" ?? 😂 This kind of comment, especially combined with your weird insinuations around the choice of venue, as if it's some kind of grand conspiracy that they're using the Hollywood because they now own it, not to mention your batshit-crazy comments around keeping the prize pack secret, all makes you come across like a bit of a tin foil hat lunatic.
OF COURSE they would use the Hollywood this year?! To a lot of us film nerds it's like a home-away-from-home and seeing our films in that particular theatre is a dream come true. The presentation of the films was exquisite - better than at any other past venue. You're not uncovering some big secret, and framing it that way is just juvenile. The organisers of an event that requires a cinema happen to own a cinema, and they used it for their event?! No!!
It's a huge job, with new city managers that are in their first year on the job, and there were some teething issues on the first night. They learned from it, made adjustments, and from all accounts both Wednesday and Thursday have been seamless.
The organizers of this comp have always been very open to criticism and feedback, and Johnathan's response to you shows that this is still the case. I just don't understand why you've got to be so hostile?
Oh, and you know that spam means unsolicited, right? If you don't want to be on Ant's mailing list, may I suggest that you unsubscribe?
Looking forward to talking about this in person over a beer. You had a real issue to raise here, but you lost both legs you were standing on by being so unnecessarily hostile.
man, i LOVED driveby stigmata! that was their first entry, right? what ever happened to that team??
