Heroes of the East is taking a short hiatus December 6, 2010

Posted by Cal in : Uncategorized , trackback

I will be taking a short break from Heroes of the East to concentrate on other exciting ventures.  Rest assured, I will be back - either in a couple of weeks or a couple of months.  To all readers, thanks for your continued support over the last three years, and keep on watching!

Any news on what the exciting ventures will be? Will you still monitor the messages here? Will you still be watching movies?

Hiya Shawn…

Yes, I’ll still be watching films and yes I’ll still be monitoring messages on here. I will probably become more visible on the HKMDB as a result, so you haven’t seen the last of me yet ;) . And besides, I’ll probably be back writing here sooner rather than later. I just put this update on so no one thinks the blog’s died.

I am trying my hand at writing comedy, and want to devote a bit of time to it. I’ve no idea yet how long I’m expecting to do this, or how successful I’ll be at it, but I desperately want to give it a shot to see how it goes.

So keep on posting on here and I’ll certainly be around before you know it! :)

I hope weeks instead of months for your next review but if it’s months I hope it means success for your comedy writing. Goodluck buddy.

Thanks a lot, mate :) . I’m starting to think I might not be able to stay away from the reviews, but I’ll try to be strong!

What films have you been watching lately Cal? I need to recommend some film noir for you. I’ll start with two basics (film noir 101): The Maltese Falcon and Double Indemnity.

Good luck, mate. We hope to have you back here as a regular presence soon.

Thank-you for continuing to support my blog. I’ve been a silent supporter of your’s for quite some time. My intention was to become more vocal recently; however, you’re off chaneling the spirit of Benny Hill.

Speaking of HKMDB: I managed to lose my password. My repeated requests for a new one have been ignored and my request for a new account denied. I recently stopped by to investigate. Apparently there’s been some form of a shake-up?

If you have a Facebook — friend me — and I can keep up with the play-by-play.

Cheers Adam - where are you on facebook? I can’t seem to find you. I’m here: http://www.facebook.com/mjocallaghan

I won’t pretend I know what’s happened at the HKMDB. I love the HKMDB - it’s a valuable resource written by passionate and mostly well-informed people. But I hate the way vague threats and warnings are doled out with no explanation, and often feel I’ve been a very naughty boy indeed when I probably haven’t done anything wrong. As of today, I can still log in - but I don’t feel like adding anything more because I just don’t know if I’m welcome anymore. From what I’ve heard, others are in the same boat. It’s a terrible shame, and I hope the situation is cleared up someday soon.

Actually the issue at HKMDB is a bit simple (my last PM was ignored). Bob decided to close down the forums for posting and take away editing privs of several. We cannot add anything to the forums right now (not editors and even editors cannot post to the locked forums). Brian thinks this is partially because of him arguing with Bob. But anyways the whole thing stinks.

This upsets me because I’ve had information I’ve wanted to add for movies since the shakeup. I mean really there was only a few posters in the forums anyway.

9. Cal - February 8, 2011

Couldn’t agree more. It’s a shame Bob didn’t just resolve his issues with the person(s) directly responsible instead of making others feel guilty. I guess I won’t be allowed back anyway now for criticising the administration, but what the hey…
