  1. Blimey, I live in Hammersmith... Actually, that's a little too close for comfort. You're going to pop round and give me a rape now, aren't you?
  2. Alright fellas! I'm 30 and live in 'that London' with my girlfriend. I work as a Film Editor and I specialise in making comedy films and shows for the telly. If you're wondering: yes, you've probably seen at least one thing I've made. My hobbies are films (what a surprise), poker, Xbox, football and snowboarding. I'm a massive Millwall supporter on account of me being a filthy cockney. It's actually a great time to follow them, we've won 8 out of our last 10 games and have conceded the grand total of 5 league goals this year. We're right in the play-off mix and have a huge game against fellow play-off hopefuls and long-time rivals Charlton this Saturday. Off to Banff in Canada for some snow related fun in ten days - I'm getting a bit excited to be honest.
  3. Thankyou Sean, very nice of you to say so. Likewise, well played, especially in that first game and genuine good luck wishes for the rest of the season. After all, we need you to take points off everyone else so we can get higher up that table. p.s. I'm still waiting for my Macarena.
  4. I'll be the judge of that. Record us a Sean version of The Macarena and upload it please. Dancing compulsory.
  5. Ah so the bad luck you suffered was more unlucky than the bad luck we suffered. MASSIVE WINKY ----->
  6. Hang on there a second. Some people, more sensitive thin-skinned wussy people, would say the same about the comments floating our way from your lot during the first game's routing we suffered. I think accusing us of snidy remarks is a it off to be fair. There was definitely some gloating aimed at us in that first game. We took them as funny and laughed along with them. If any comments we gave back in the genuine spirit of friendly banter have hit a nerve, like I said, maybe not dish them out first then? I'd hate to think it's a case of Athletic only sing when they're winning?
  7. Oh yeah. We had the luck in that second game. But then you guys had all the luck in the first, so it evened out. Nice games boys.
  8. Not sure where this is coming from Sean mate. We were in high spirits. I do remember your boys giving us stick for 'moaning' about restarts and a comment along the lines of "Don't blame the corner, blame your awesome throw-in" after one of your goals. It seems to me if your lot can't take a bit of banter, I suggest you don't start giving it out.
  9. Always happy to play the any. However, this is my far preferred option. It's difficult to run players up and know exactly what to do in the nano seconds you get on the ball going forward, but swapping between players defending is much easier. I've also found that when I play the any, the RM and LM end up being a bit more defensive for the above reason. I agree to finish 4th (or better) we need at least one win tonight and we won't cause enough trouble going forward with me as the any on the LM, RM and CAM. If there's a chance the Joffs may go wandreing, should we set the LM arrows back as well? I can run him uo when needed, but if I need to jump over to cover the LB position, it'll be easier to do so if the LM's already hanging back. Sorry I missed last night by the way, had to work late. And when I got in, the missus was watching My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding on 4od. Which was actually quite good.
  10. I'll be around from 9ish tomorrow Winch and any other Town boys. I may make practice this evening, we'll see. I'll keep you all in suspense as to whether I get my clogs on.
  11. This one of my favorite docs of all time, I highly recommend it even to people who aren't all that interested in war.
  12. Just one more thing..... it turns out EVERYONE is a cock.
  13. The Hill is a fucking GREAT film, first film I saw when I was younger that made me think 'Hey, maybe Black and White movies aren't so bad after all'. For a film set in the desert, you can amlost feel the sweat dripping off the camera, it's so overwhelmingly overbaring.
  14. No probs mate! Yeah, I'm around early evening, 6 or 6.30 any good for you?
  15. On another note, I saw a bunch of us were playing the Ultimate Team mode last night. Give it to Robben!
  16. I'm really enjoying this. Unbeaten so far in single player, the chemistry thing makes such a difference. After winning two cups and building a nice little squad, I bought a silver pack, threw the 4 new much-better players into the team and they were atrocious! I've got a 57 rated Korean CF with such a blistering left foot on him I just give it to him 30 yards from goal and watch the scores rack up. Here's one with me pissing around with the camera angles. http://www.easportsfootball.co.uk/media/play/video/17286380
  17. Oh how convenient. The one night it's your turn in defence and suddenly your daughter is born. I bet you were feverishly feeding your misses curry and castor oil all week to induce the little 'un. Congratulations dude! Although commiserations you've now got an impatient little girl to deal with for the next twenty years.
  18. You'd be surprised. Compiling a show is very much a collaborative effort, while there's many things in the edit a good director will be on top of, getting the order and duration of the sketches requires both parties top be on sparkling form. It's the place that the director/producer most commonly gets 'edit blindness', where they've been so close to the material for so long they just don't know what's funny any more. I've seen many a director just get up and go home in sheer frustration during these times.
  19. Meh. I've missed out on the BBC Sketch show I was up for. As I'm now not working on it, I guess I can reveal that it was the next series of Armstrong and Miller. According to my agent, I was head and shoulders above any other editor they saw in terms of preference. However, they've been offered a post-production package by a company that includes a staff editor - as in an editor who's staff at a facility and not a freelance specialist in a certain genre. This package is apparently so cheap they can't turn it down. It's an odd move by them really, sketch shows are made and broken in the balancing of how each show's put together - which sketches go where, how often they re-occur during the series, that sort of thing. It's a complicated process that's not unlike a massive jigsaw puzzle, you were certain that piece should go there, but it just doesn't seem to fit. You have to be able to separate your own personal preference of a sketch from what makes the best possible episode. A non-comedy editor could really balls it up. Unfortunately, I think it's part of a growing trend in TV post-production. It's been happening in other genres over the last couple of years, it looks like it's now happening to comedy. It's a bit disappointing really. Ah well, another reason to move over permanently into films I guess. Personally, while I'm not massively gutted about losing out - I really like the show but all sketch shows can get quite dull after 4 months - it does now mean I've got a huge hole in my diary with no real work on the horizon for months. That's a bit worrying. I guess it's time for me to hit the phones, otherwise how will I keep myself knee-deep in Creme Eggs between now and Easter?
  20. I've seen it before - you'd pretend to be my pain buddy then as soon as Timmo comes back to the league and starts moaning *bang!* you'd drop me quicker than a hot potato full of AIDS. At least you're sat in the lofty position of the chumpionship. Being a League-one supporter in real life, it's like hearing Rafa Benitez moaning about having no money to spend. I'm second from bottom in the fucking Ryman's league. I've so far only one point more than BIRMINGHAM. And he's got TWO GAMES IN HAND ON ME.
  21. Yeah thanks. I didn't come in after your original post with a sarcy comment did I? KICK ME WHEN I'M FUCKING DOWN WHY DON'T YOU.
  22. Yeah totally, once you were two-up you defended fantastically and definitely deserved the win from there. It would have been very harsh of me to come back then. Just after the frustration of the first game, the moment you scored that first goal off my players tackling each other again I was just FFS I'm even glad I managed to keep the damage to just two, you were always threatening coming forward. I just wish I could have scored a couple of the guilt edged chances I had in the second half.
