  2. DOM’s list has been subject to an administrative cock up.

    There is one film missing – can you spot which one?

    And, there is another glaring error – can the sharp-eyed proof readers spot it?

    No prizes. Just for fun.

    Promise to put things right soon!

  3. I noticed that the number under the categories on the right-hand side of the page didn’t reconcile with the number on the list.

    La Dolce Vita is missing and the numbering goes to cock after 22.

    I’ll put it right.

    Ah the joys of double-entry. It’s a good job that you are not in a job that requires you to spot these things Dom.

  4. There has been the promise of no less than 3 pieces from Dom for next month. I trust that you will exert your influence over the weekend to ensure that the pieces are delivered!

  6. Those readers who are desperate for a bit of Dom Dirk, will need to be patient for a little longer. I have been assured that the pieces are on the way, but are currently subject to Dom’s strict, New Yorker style fact checking.
