Oh, do grow up...
I seem to be quite late to the party, but Matthew Graham appears to be seriously pissed off with Philip Glenister over his Radio Times interview.

He does seem to be even more angry about him and Ash being referred to as "the writers" than about Phil's claim to have originated the phrase "Fire up the Quattro". Which was a crap phrase anyway imo. Anyway, the tone of those tweets seems like something there's no coming back from!

As an aside, I screencapped the tweets and was going to post the cap, but after I'd uploaded it to Photobucket I got presented with a new set of Terms and Conditions, including the following:

"If you make your Content public, you grant us a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free license (with the right to sublicense) to copy, distribute, publicly perform (e.g., stream it), publicly display (e.g., post it elsewhere), reproduce and create derivative works from it (meaning things based on it), anywhere, whether in print or any kind of electronic version that exists now or later developed, for any purpose, including a commercial purpose.

You are also giving other Users the right to copy, distribute, publicly perform, publicly display, reproduce and create derivative works from it via the Site or third party websites or applications (for example, via services allowing Users to order prints of Content or t-shirts and similar items containing Content, and via social media websites)."

So I upload a photo I've taken, and they are allowed to make money out of it? I'm not happy about that. No wonder I keep getting desperate emails from them asking me to come back and use my Photobucket - people must be leaving in droves. I shall be checking my account tomorrow and deleting any original work. This will result in broken links, which is annoying.

So, anyone recommend a similar picture-holding site where they don't assert their right to benefit commercially from my property?

I upload mine on the LJ scrapbook application, which you can link to from anywhere. No idea what the T&C are on it though haha.

There is one good thing to come out of all these tweets: I've discovered I wasn't the only one to think "Fire up the Quattro" wasn't very good.

It was fine as a line. It was just that the papers gave it this huge buildup beforehand which only the likes of "a tart's furry cup" could have lived up to, so as a catchphrase, it was doomed to fail.

I quite liked the fact that the interviewer stood up for him and said it was her decision not to name Matt & Ash because - obviously - the feature wasn't actually about their work. It simply wouldn't have been appropriate. The actual claim is an interesting one though. I can see Phil saying that as a joke, totally deadpan, and if the woman doesn't know him very well she would have missed it and taken it at face value.

No doubt it will all come out in the end - even Ian Wylie has mentioned it and he's always very diplomatic.
