A really bad idea

Sometimes, it's best to reveal the truly awful ideas only when the urge to act on them has passed. Some background: as any regular reader will know, work had dried up for me last month and I was so broke that I had a stack of bills I couldn't pay, as well as pretty much no chance of making the rent. So I hit upon what seemed an idea of pure genius - putting the film rights to e-luv up on eBay. Not only was it relevant, dead clever and postmodern, but it would also generate huge publicity resulting in a 6-figure deal. Strangely, not one person shared my enthusiasm for this and the idea was quietly dropped.

Hi Dave,
Nice blog, I'm very pleased you're linking to me from it. I'll pop a link back from mine.

Anyway, I just wanted to say how cool it is that you've actually owned up to having a bad idea. I actually think it could've been a very good idea, but a lot of things I think are good ideas don't seem to work out, so that doesn't mean much... You've got to keep giving things a go though haven't you? One of these days you'll come up with a gem, I'm sure.

I think it's a good idea.

Set the reserve at 100K or whatever and do it.

Thanks Julia - I did decide to give it a try. No bids yet, unsurprisingly. Anonymous. OK, will do.
