Lights, Camera, Action

It's evening in Belfast, and the first day of shooting is now in the can.

Feels strange. Exciting, but also... I don't know, maybe I'm feeling a bit of empty nest syndrome. My kids have left home, and are making their own way in the world.

I'd wish good luck to everyone involved in the HBO production, but I recall that you never say that in the theatre. Maybe everyone concerned break several legs.

And me... well, a blank computer screen awaits. Still a lot of story to tell.

First I'd like to thank you for replying to my comment, you do me an honor.

I figured as much- you only have to look around the street, not even peek into royal courts, to see that a lot of names are reused all the time. Hell, I myself am named after my grandfather(even if my name is quite rare these days), and my older sister after the grandmother.

I understand the reasoning behind the HBO decision, but it still reeks from "stupid viewers might get confused and we don't want to upset them". Sure, I understand how the business works, even if I'm unhappy with it.

I also wanted to add what you yourself said, that it gives your world realism to have consistent, related names.

And keep up smacking at that damn, dirty ape!
