imp will be delighted

So, once again I notice how many of you seem to know each other or have met. This time itís over in SSSís Beardhammer thread where Leo, SSS, DD and GFDC are lined up in class shot.

It got me wondering, a silly, childish thing, how long could you make a thread if I entered one member, then a) the first of you who knows this member or have met him/her enter your own member name, a story or anecdote about some encounter together with the entry would be the bonus Iím looking for, and b) if you do your best to keep the chain going by not entering your name if you know itíll die with your entry?

It would be silly to start with me, as only Shishko could come next and that would kill it.

There must be at least three other members between each of your own entries.

I'm sat outside in a van, looking through a lens focussed on your sitting room windows, as we speak.

Ah, but Rogin, that red dot on your forehead is the scope of my sniper rifle.

I've met Leo, twice I think. The last time was in a hidden pub in the backstreets of Camden, we were there for this lad's birthday. He (the birthday boy) was sporting a fake black eye.

Alright, I'll play.

I've met Leo. The first time was at the launch party of BANG! magazine, for which I had invited him to be a contributor (based on his excellent OTF Music posts). I couldn't hear much of what he was saying, because our special guests The Darkness were playing very loudly, but he seemed like a terribly nice chap.

The next time I remember properly meeting him after that was on Easter Monday this year, when a bunch of us (Gas Filled Dolphin Carcass, Super Sharp Shooter, Diggedy Derek and Mrs Diggedy Derek) embarked on a Haringey pub crawl to mark Derek's birthday. This was the legendary occasion on which the millionaire rockstar's sport of Big Tank Chess was conceived.

Embarrassingly, I didn't know who he was at first, because he'd grown his hair. (Equally embarrassingly, I got his surname wrong on OTF because I wasn't concentrating, and I mistook him for another music journalist called Leo... who is dead).

He's been to Stay Beautiful a few times too, but my next vivid memory of him is the first BigSexyLand, when he was dressed like one of The Hives and seemed badly in need of a shitty stick with which to fight off all the attractive women who were surrounding him. Respect.

There you go, not exactly corking anecdotes, but it's a start.

My job title is the extremely nebulous 'Creative Manager'. I run the design department (including doing lots of design myself) and stick my oar in generally with the whole day-to-day running of development, coming up with processes and overseeing schedules and so forth.

20 years, man and boy I've been doing this stuff for. And I still can't quite explain what I do.

Actually, mostly I stand around saying "For fuck's sake, what's this? Can we do it again properly please?" I might just write that on a cardboard cutout of myself and spend the rest of my life down the pub.

You work in the industry in some way or other don't you?

Just to show how narrow those degrees of seperation are, I've met Leo too.

SSS, did you write any Spectrum games?

One of my best friends wrote Loads Of Midnight. No misspelling, sadly.

I do, or at least I did until a couple of months ago when I left Sony. Looking for something new now.

I've been a Creative Manager too, with Infogrames in France which basically involved something along the lines you mention - "that's shit, can you do it better please" to loads of people. Or to be more precise "c'est merde, pouvez-vous le faire mieux ?"

Actually I am the Salieri to everyone else's Mozart, I am good at spotting skill and talent in others without being able to do anything of note myself.

Which company are you with ?

Yes. But they were all pretty awful, so we won't be discussing those here.
