Australian Sons Let Us Rejoice


Tom_In_Oz_: We have a new Aerogard insect spray TV ad for Australia Day that uses "Summer Lovin'" as its cooking sausages in his red Speedos *classic*

MathewParry: I just looked for the Aeroguard ad after you mentioned it. The guy in the red Speedos is *just right*! Phwoar.

imjustanerd: @Tom_In_Oz_ Just saw the ad. Guy in red Speedos - hilarious. LOL

Tom_In_Oz_: @russelltovey Just noticed you are past 29,000 followers and rising. Being Human returning to air has increased your following me thinks!

BillBraxton: @russelltovey just watched my first BH. You are all fantastic. Taking story like that & making it poignant & believable. Fabulous talent.

"Tom in Oz" meets "Joff of Oz"

Joffofoz: @Tom_In_Oz_ he's gay???? Oh my there is a god afterall !!!!

Tom_In_Oz_: @Joffofoz Of course he's let's move there anything else I can help you with?

Joffofoz: @Tom_In_Oz_ yes get me a uterus so I can have his babies

Tom_In_Oz_: LOL

Joffofoz: @Tom_In_Oz_ Mmmm apart from the excellent show there's a bit of butt that's getting followed me thinks

Tom_In_Oz_: @Joffofoz yes there are some tail chasers amongst his following but that's OK. Russ promotes it in fact...I think he secretly wants it!!!

Joffofoz: @Tom_In_Oz_ he's a very generous guy!! I just think he's the bees knees !!! Swoon

Tom_In_Oz_: @Joffofoz Am I allowed to blog your conversations with me?... & use your avatar?

Thank you for your concern:

HorshamiteHarry: Tom_In_Oz_: morning Tom. Question. The amount of work you do on the RT site. Have you had any conversation or feedback from him directly?

Tom_In_Oz_: @HorshamiteHarry Nope never...not any kind of word...why?

HorshamiteHarry: @Tom_In_Oz_ whats the point then if your work is not appreciated and ignored. I will tell him what I think of his lack of respect.

Tom_In_Oz_: Dear Harry @HorshamiteHarry I wrote to Russell @russelltovey in April 2010 and let him know I was starting a fan blog.

I told him I'd yank it if he objected. I sent 7 copies of the letter out to his agent [C.C.], to BBC3 and so forth...never got word I just started...then within a month the blog following just grew and grew.

The blog now has 70,000 things re-tweeted around the world. People from 106 different countries have visited the site, and currently the monthly figures are at 170,000 hits.

I also told Russell blogging was something I'd do for free but if he objected to things I would remove them.

Most of the time things have gone smoothly. A couple of Twitter errors by Russ I didn’t agree with but hey...he will cop trouble with his fans not me!

In fact although we don't talk, when we do exchange Tweets, he's given me permission to upload his naked pics either he's happy about what I do..or just doesn't care...

Most of all the fans just love the blog...otherwise the site figures wouldn't be so good...

I have had a few strange people accuse me of making money off of it which is a laugh! The name I use is anonymous and has no business associated with it etc...some deluded Twitter guy thought I was scamming Russell for fame...well how is an anonymous name going to be famous I ask? (Yes, Tom in Oz made it to an article in Attitude Magazine - WOW! Tom in Oz in now famous). Anyway my full-time job is teaching, which is nothing to do with celebrity or show biz.

I didn't even meet Russell when in the UK and had the opportunity to do so. So the answer is yes, I'm a fan but no, not devoted to the point of slavishly wanting to please Russell or stalk him.....

Mostly, I please myself with what I make and do for the blog...and expect nothing in return...well maybe a Happy Birthday or Merry Christmas would have been nice, but that's it!

Cheers and thanks for being worried about me.

HorshamiteHarry: @Tom_In_Oz_@russelltovey Now that is a reply and a half. !!. Like your style Tom. X


My aim is not to offend or discourage fans from enjoying this site. The following picture is censored but still may offend. If you wish for it to be withdrawn please leave a request in the "comments" box.

NB. When I received the picture on the right from a Tovey blog fan it made me laugh out loud. Obviously whoever made the fake didn’t do their research and got Russell’s religious persuasion wrong Wrong WRONG!
