- Other bits
What's the first film you were taken to see as a kid?
Believe it or not, mine was Paint Your Wagon (1969) with Lee Marvin and Clint Eastwood when I was 3 years old. Umm I don't think my parents really chose that one for me somehow! I blame my father wholeheardedly for any subsequent Clint Eastwood fixation.
What was the first video you rented?
Remember renting videos? Which was your first rental?
Your favourite RPG?
I love JRPGs especially the Final Fantasy games - do you have a favoute RPG or series of RPG's?
What was the last truly scary horror film you saw?
I grew up on Hammer House of Horror & Stephen King books which explains a lot but I just don't think films are scary these days?
What is the best night out watching the big match ever?
I had a fab time the night of the England-Germany semi final of Euro 96, sadly we lost after a string of nail biting penalties but the drunkenness in Nottingham market square afterwards (including a whole array of boys showing me their st george cross boxers in the street!) made up for it :D

Do you remember the whole process:
Firstly, buying the role of film, winding it in and hoping you hadn't wound it in too far and lost the first picture.
Then taking either 24 or 36 pictures which is all you could fit depending on the film you bought. A good portion of which will come out blurred because either the people moved or you didn't keep the camera straight.
Putting the film in a bag and sending it off for processing or taking it into a shop to be developed.
Waiting a week or two to collect them or have them posted back.
If collecting them, opening them up expectantly in the shop because you couldn't wait til you got home to see them.
Then most of them being utter RUBBISH and having to pay for them anyway.
Then putting them all in albums.
Ah, those were the days..........
