As per the latest (at time of posting) blog entry: http://blogface.lovelycountry.net/2010/49/vigour-renewal/

I am quite keen to get this done and sorted however as most of the suppliers of making such things and allowing others to buy them (which is by far easier than the creator having to order enough for everyone and getting paid themselves) is based in the US which leaves the cheapest rate of shipping (3.99) up to 15 days to arrive. (It's over double the shipping costs to have it arrive within 3 days). Which means it needs to be finished early August at the latest to have a shot of arriving in time for any big celebration meets so people can sign each others faces (or their own on other's books) and such or what not.

Thus ideas for themed pages and stuff that should be in it would be grand. Also as mentioned on the  blog what people are willing to pay for the book might be helpful in deciding how much to put in it (though what we're supplied with will undoubtedly be a factor in that). As always 5years@lovelycountry.net is the email to send photos, thread transcripts, words and what not.

the place I'm looking at also has a charitable section http://www.blurb.com/blurbforgood/benefits so that if we can think of a charity that doesn't involve raping any goats (for the sake of national unity) we can more easily get it going on for such a thang.

Some further sparadic thoughts on the book make up. Obviously chronologically it'll cover things from the beginning till the end and what not but stuff that I think would be good to include.

First Lovely Day (when we're named) and photos from the TV show era.

Embassy photos.

First Christmas Meet.

Subsequent Christmas Meets.

First Cheaster. (Maybe an idea not to dwell on later ones too much)

Other Meet pictures and talking about them.

A yearbook like thing where citizens who consent can have a picture of them (past or present or not even of them but their avatar) listed with their name.

A yearbook like thing where there will be the "citizen most likely to..." statements following a month of polling in July say.

Entire pages/half a page given to various citizens to choose a few specific photos and say some words about their thoughts and feelings about Lovely.

A small (between 3 and 10 pages) comic strip type thing about the history of Lovely, maybe two or three considering various biases some accounts may have.

A letter from King Rasputin (it'd be nice).

A silliest polls double spread where new polls are put for people to put to their firends/famalies to gauge opinion.

Photocopiable pages for personalisation to make official documentation for Lovely.

Citizen Biographies. Where upon a citizen can write up about another citizen worthy of note.

Transcripts from threads of old and old GA articles Lurker and the Truth (and even other times) articles.

The Second Cheaster wasn't so bad, even with Schnips, who wasn't the worst person in the world, at least she talked unlike David Blunket who just swore at us and stayed on his own.

Cheaster as an event has kinda petered out, Christmas whilst having been moved to Feburary is still celebrated and still is clearly "Christmas" rather than any old meet.

I don't think subsequent Cheasters will supply the photos and snippets of memory in easy soundbite length passages of one or two sentences to be able to handle a page or more devoted to each event. The First Cheaster could probably fill up two-three pages with ease.

note no one has actually sent me any material or what not nor have I really looked any up and I'm so not up to writing the majority of the content for it so it might peddle out into nothing.

There was somebody doing a photobook on the Saz Facebook group, maybe you should get in touch with whoever it is and steal their photos.

I only have pics from the wembley meet that I went to with Bo, Gidds and Ray. Don't think I took any photos at any other meet I've been to, but I haven't been to many...


Erm.... meeting Marie in Merry Hill; meeting Love and Mike in Oxford; meeting Ray to go see Foo Fighters (although the band released this gig on DVD so we might be in there somewhere..!) and then bumping into Saz, Mike and someone else afterwards; the Brighton meet (Giddseys first meet, I believe!); Going to Wembley to watch Schteve McClaren's England lose to Germany; watching Rugby in Swindon with Schaf; Xmas meet in Feb; my "stag"; my wedding (although, I wouldn't really class this as a meet as such tbh); meeting Ray in Bath*; going to see Dinosaur Jr with Mike in Oxford; going to see Half Man Half Biscuit with Schaf; another xmas meet; meeting Schaf in Bath*..


errrr... can't think of any others off the top of my head?


*that place in the West Country, not an actual bath LOLZS

that said it doesn't all have to be photos, witicisms and what not are wanted as well.

Rev why don't you put your drawing talent to set the story straight and make some sort of comic detailing events?

That would probably alienate most of the potential market for the book
