oh oh, what about that time the guy who was angry at losing a pound in the fruit machine asked Al Ewing, John Spelling and me to go back into the club and trash it? hahaha

"I'm not being funny, mate, but you and me, we've got long hair, and people with long hair are a bit special and different, aren't they, like not part of the herd? Now come on, let's maim us a bouncer etc."
Try again. Fail again. Fail better.

A great weekend - thanks to everyone I met, especially thinky, JEB and LMS for the floor space Friday night.

Genuinly sorry to have missed out on the club on Saturday but I jest wasn't in that frame of mind.  As it was I missed my bus by two minutes getting lost within the Eurobar and had to pay a tenner rather than wait an hour.  Arm wrestling sounded fun.

Max as certainly got a great pitch technique, if he can couple that with a real script he'll blow everyone away ;) Unless Frazer was recording the pitch to use in lieu of a Script that is...

Oh and Colins extrememly cheap art has gone down a storm back home.  So that's another plus.

See y'all in Brighton...

Dan

Top weekend, with my non-booze related highlight being Bryan Talbot's excellent talk. Much drink-related tomfoolery, and the great Alan/Simon debate will surely rage for many years to come. For some reason I kept bumping into Dom in toilets, I'm sure this was a totally innocent coincidence though.

Rumour has it there was a bit of a pagga at the afternoon panel, which I missed cos I was queuing for sketches. Did anyone see this and can they elaborate?

Well, that's a damn shame.

Alan Barnes has helmed the Meg through a real renaissance, and put it in a position where it is now the best it's been since it first launched. If he does leave, he'll be leaving the Meg in a fine position, but it'll still be sad to see him go.

Not quite the news I'd hoped for!

Well, as far as being a Meg reader goes, it would be a shame if true.  It's gone from a magazine that I really didn't have any interest in, to a must have handy companion to 2000AD.

Anyway, if it is true, best of luck to him.

You could've slept on my face and I doubt I'd have noticed...
Pffft...

Great to meet some new people as well as chatting to old friends.

Highlights

Best rumour evah goes to the Simon Spurrier one... his reaction to it when I told him back to him was priceless...

Oh and I now look on Molcher in a completely different light given the relevations regarding his reading tastes... who would have thunk it.

The Talbot talk and doing my best not to gush when I was talking to him in the bar.

Outing Viggo as a ponce for having a cig case.

Insulting Jock ... then gushing.

The two nutters in the pub.

Frazier's insight into things I don't think I can really discuss in public

Hang on... no fight this year?

I'm sure I read you won the pitchfest gary, is this so?  

If it is, well done, for beating Art in the number of stories drawn, 3-2, 3-2, 3-2... 3...2...

Heh, sorry.

Big thank you to all of you guys and girls who came down to Dredd Con on Saturday - especially Logan who helped out all day long.
