Re: DVD SIGNING!


quote:

It IS, I'm impressed! Where did you learn such skills, sir?

I'm Welsh. emoticon Although I was born in Cambridge. Me and my sister are like day walkers (love that phrase) in my totally welsh family. Luckily my dad then moved us to north wales for a decade or so. Unfortuantly we are all south walean. If you are southern Welsh then you know what that means; we may as well have moved in with the queen in London. emoticon My dad doesn't like most of his family (esp the inlaw Cardis, and everyone knows how tight they are....)...

Amusingly I now live a stone throw away (bit of a good throw admittingly) from Ascot race course, and if it wasn't for the depression (meant in fog of doom way rather than dip in ground) I could see Windsor castle from where I work. Also, fairly interestingly, we were took over by a firm in Slough (for a laugh look up Slough in a dictionary) and we had to merge from them. Every day I pass that "Industrial estate" sign from the Office. Quite a few parallels with that program (the singing fish and the "doctored" photo being spot on). Apparently the building where they filmed the outside of is just a few streets away (as is Harry Potter's Uncle's house from where I live) but in the five years we have been there everyone has been too depressed to look. They could be lying I suppose...

Oh, and nice nickname. You know what we welsh lads are like. emoticon

Cheers

Wow, what a bunch of a/s/l cosy gang we're becoming.... How was the signing? I'm stuck in the middle of an abandoned mansion in Devon at the moment so couldn't be there emoticon The only thing that's keeping me sane is my collection of singing potatoes...

I live near Ascot. I basically just couldn't be arsed.

To make up for it I'm planning on a Darkplace night on my projector. Yes thats 104" of Dag. Of course thats only excitement with the prospect of the cinema experience of Darkplace. ie. I'm not gay.

Cheers

Re: DVD SIGNING!


Just back from the signing. Didn't manage to meet any. Allthough tbh given the size of the turnout this wasn't suprising.

I was late arriving, only just managed to get there for six. Entering the store to the sounds of 'One track lover'. The queue was massive interweaving it's way through half the basement of the store (and presumably strategically right through the sale section). The store seemed short on Darkplace DVD's which suggests the turnout had been underestimated. Virtually dead on six the store tannoy switched to playing the Darkplace theme, which it then preceed to loop repeatedly approx 45 times!

It took a full 3 hours to get to the front (45 repeats of the theme tune and then 3 loops of an AC-DC album) by which time Matt & co must have been ridiculously knackered but they were very chatty and pleasant and impressively were still remaining in character. There was a camera present filming the event, which I asked "Garth" about. He said this was to pad out the DVD release of Man 2 Man (which actually wouldn't suprise me). I also managed to ask why it was changed from Deano's After Dark - the in character reply being this time "contractual reasons" and "had we not changed it we'd only be able to show it in peru". By the time I left it was around quarter past nine and the queue still looked like it had a good hour or two in it yet.

Hopefully such a magnificient turnout bodes very well for future projects. Looked like Save Darkplace had fulfilled it's intended perhaps with flying colours.

Seriously can't see why they have treated Darkplace so badly. Look at the american Sci-fi forums and basically they old just got to see it, and then at [sign in to see URL]. After one episode they moved it to [sign in to see URL]! And no repeats (again). Again everyone loves it there and can't understand the lack of repeats and stupid time slots (I sense a pattern). There was an amusing post that applauded channel 4 in the UK for repeating it so quickly in october. emoticon

Cheers

Tbh tho I think it's helped build a strong faithfully fanbase. It was great seeing so many Darkplace fans in one place. Rich/Matt looked plesantly suprised. Hopefully Man 2 Man will reap the rewards and get very positive viewing figures.

I was suprised to see alot of people when i arrived at 5. Luckly it was only about 20-30 people in front of me and i was right at Hasselhoff biography. By the time i was at the front the queue was huge.

Agreed, I'm gutted they held it the one time I was away from home and I missed the get together. Would love to see some photos of the event!
