‘Get those **** snakes on the **** plane!’ 

Because of a tiny involvement in the film by way of Lucire ( in the seat pockets), I have tracked how the has been going in terms of . Right now, while Google News hits are plentiful, the overall number of references in the search engine has dropped dramatically:

January 19: 96,900 (blogs; plus original coverage after Wired)
February 1: 461,000
February 5: 380,000
February 15: 176,000
March 25: 880,000 (after news of extra footage)
April 3: 4,270,000
April 8: 6,020,000
April 17: 9,700,000
April 28: 5,390,000

Addenda after this post
May 5: 4,360,000
May 18: 2,820,000
June 2: 4,570,000
June 4: 0! (See here!)
June 10: 2,600,000
July 2: 4,950,000
August 4: 11,700,000
August 18: 18,900,000
August 20: 40,400,000
August 21: 47,400,000
August 22: 56,200,000
August 24: 67,500,000
August 25: 60,900,000
August 30: 54,800,000
September 3: 39,400,000

   So, either gets radical on the , as I stated earlier, or reschedule the film (for earlier). Or get out an additional out as soon as possible, so that restarts. While 5·4 million references to Snakes on a Plane (in quotes) is higher than when the first talked about it, the downward is noticeable. People are having less fun with Snakes on a Plane, and this , given its premise, needs to be fun, involving and conversation-generating in every respect.
   In fact, let carry ads for free as teasers. Every will have unsold ad inventory at some time, so provide some artwork for us to download to fill gaps—and let us behave like the bloggers! ! (We would even consider it for our , for the heck of it, though this last issue was packed.)
   I also learned from Roadshow here in that we won’t even see it till November (October 5 in Australia), by which time the hype will well and truly be over. So: get those **** snakes on the **** plane!

Entries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
   With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
