One of my abiding memories of this place was when LewisD and Aaron went to Tokyo. Aaron ended up going it alone after a week or so, and I remember him posting a video of some friends of friends he met up with. I was living in Japan at the time and actually knew one of the lads in the video, so I gave his number to Aaron and I think they ended up hanging out.

Small world.

What is especially cool is that, at one point or another, I've ended up meeting almost all of the ITB/Skill Club crew and they've all been sound people.

Sadly there's very few of us left on here now.



You know it was ten years last month since we met for a pint in London. :shock: :shock:


Ah yeah, Team Rocket’s famous for that as well. What happened to that guy.

I used to read Daily Radar when I was a wee guy and eventually joined up and acted like a knob a lot when I was 16/17, by that time it was Games Radar. Probably 2002/3.

I remember when when everyone believed that 8hrs was going to write a book.

Them were the days.

Wasn’t my first, but I had a heart murmur or something during the DML game when there wasn’t any strawberry floating wolves and was blue lighted to hospital.

That was Albear, wasn't it?

JK also moaned about his girlfriend on her and got caught, and now most of him is in a safe in a sinkhole somewhere.
