Everything changes all the time and The Dock Blogger is covering New Tracks

November 10, 2011

Good morning folks, anybody wondering how my Dock Blogger Review Meeting went?

There may be some small and big changes ahead of us, my identity may (or may not) be revealed to youse all rather sooner than later, and ‘d like to know what the dear readership makes of that? The first reaction of my two confidantes was an OH NO!; whereas my daughter thinks that is the coolest that can happen, her Mum being officially around town with a big camera round her neck, interviewing people and checking things out.  I hope the people from funding are reading the ‘big camera’ bit!

So folks, question’s over to you, how would you like to see the Dock Blogger around town, do you want a face to that idea, or do you think incognito is mysterious, funny and adding to your pleasure of reading the blog?

Again as everything, there’ll be the two sides to that, the mystery will be gone, done and dusted forever, but the blog can pick up a pace as I’ll be able to officially crouch into all the hidden corners, behind the curtains of the dressing room, take pictures openly without Natalia trying to figure me out, drag things into the light that otherwise won’t be seen or heard by any of us…

So, there might be a face to the Dock Blogger soon, and you yourself might be next to be interviewed properly and officially for the blog, all the Open Season Candidates may step forward at that! My daughter by the way wants to help me with the questions for the interviews, looks like the whole gang will be roped in  for the job!

Besides all that, the idea is to cover more of Behind the Scenes, people getting ready and prepared for shows, the actors unwinding in the dressing room, dressing up and dressing down, maybe the odd interview with the actor, singer or band you’ll see next week on stage, or to find out what is Ailie Blunnie’s favourite place, what makes people thick or inspires them… there will certainly be more planning and organizing involved for me, but my country of origin is notoriously famous and well slagged for planning being second nature to its citizens, so I should be just fine!!

The actual programme and upcoming shows will always be in the What’s On Guide for you, at the official Dock Website, on Facebook, or if you follow our little tweeting Dock Twitter Birdie; of course I‘ll continue to keep you on your toes re the programme too, but maybe slightly less so… I’ll be aiming for three posts a week, one on Monday morning, just because I like being cheered up at that time of the week too and I imagine you in your office sneaking a quick glance at our page, knowing something cheerful will pop up… the second post around midweek, and the third anytime between Friday and Saturday, depending on all the inner and outer forces within and beyond my control. So that is the days to look out for updates and news from my side, whereas in the meantime I will be getting hold of the artists, writers, invisible helping hands … and everything behind the scenes that may be exciting, interesting, cheeky, funny, forgotten, beautiful, difficult, heart warming or wacky … and that will make The Dock come more alive for you, and all of us!

Dock Blogger Offline, A Non-Post, and Thinking outside the Box

October 13, 2011

Sorry guys, no post today, having one of those mornings, aaaaarrrrgggghhhhh, but I am on to Vodafone big time! Check out my last post, maybe Mundy or the funny David O’Doherty on YouTube, that’s the best I can do under the circumstances!

Apropos the best under the circumstances, I may have a story up my sleeve for you after all, just for the craic, it is called Learn to think outside the box!

 An old Italian gentleman lived alone in New Jersey. He wanted to plant
his annual tomato garden, but it was very difficult work, as the ground was hard.
His only son, Vincent, who used to help him, was in prison. The old man
wrote a letter to his son and described his predicament:

Dear Vincent,
I am feeling pretty sad because it looks like I won’t be able to plant my
tomato garden this year. I’m just getting too old to be digging up a garden plot.

I know if you were here my troubles would be over. I know you would be happy
to dig the plot for me, like in the old days.

A few days later he received a letter from his son.

Dear Papa,
Don’t dig up that garden. That’s where the bodies are buried.
Love, Vinnie

At 4 a.m. the next morning, FBI agents and local police arrived and dug up
the entire area without finding any bodies. They apologized to the old man
and left.
That same day the old man received another letter from his son.

Dear Papa,
Go ahead and plant the tomatoes now.

That’s the best I could do under the circumstances.
Love you, Vinnie

Enjoy the week,

Your D B
