I just got this message on Facebook:
Hi there, just wondering if you were the Director of Revenge Billy the Kid (1992)?
If so, I’m an author, and would love to chat to you about your work.
Which reminded me that there is another famous Jim Groom, maybe not as rich and Google famous as me, mind you, but famous in his own right. The other Jim Groom is a British independent/cult filmmaker, most famous for Revenge of Billy the Kid (1992). After a quick vanity search it’s apparent that I’ve pretty much annhilated his presence from the first five page of Google, whereas just three short years ago he owned his online namesake. I love it when an upstart American brings the British cult film empire to its knees!
So I want to take this post to apologize to the other Jim Groom for the irreparable Google harm I’ve done him, and I’d also like to let him know that we can work out a mutually beneficial arrangement for jimgroom.net or jimgroom.org given the right price. Also, there’s an author looking to talk to you about your work 🙂
And let me ask all of you, do you know who owns your online identity? In three short years it could be a character as unsavory as me, protect yourself now, and start a blog god damn it!
