    Mine is learning to play the guitar. Guitar got me into music and music means alot to me (as does guitar) and its worth the effort to be able to play.

    Also is getting a snake after wanting one for 6 years, being at the Memorial show and getting my gaming computer.


    Haven't kissed a girl high 5!!!

    Okay now my heads cleared up ill get listing propperly.

    Learning guitar and writing some songs im proud of. As ive mentioned getting albums done n shit like that. Id fallen out with all my old friends over shit but over time ive got that back to a talking stage, but it just got me out socialising much more and ive become a new person in crowds of people or with new people.

    I wouldnt worry about it if you havent been kissed or anything. Just head out to some propper clubs. Being into metal its difficult to find women. I sorta like that though because id hate to be in a relationship with somebody who loved all the same bands as me. Dunno why like but ahh well.

    Hmmm, well there are quite a lot actually. I've been lucky in life in a lot of ways.

    Academically I have an English Degree with first class honours and a Masters in Literary Studies with distinction. I'm quite proud of that.

    I'm proud of the ten years I had with my last band, we were the biggest metal band in Aberdeen for most of that time, and while that may not seem like much, we did literally hundreds of gigs and most of them were pretty packed. when we retired a year ago the venue was absolutely chocabloc and we did a two hour set, and everyone screamed the words to all our songs and generally went apeshit. One of my favourite nights of my life, I really felt like God for a couple of hours. I'm proud how many people on the local music scene tell me we influenced them to start a band or to like metal, and I really count that as something of an achievement. We won the Most Metal of Metal category 8 years running at the local music awards, and the people voted us best band aswell. The band I'm in now are current holders of most metal too, which officially makes me the most metal person in Aberdeen, and I think that's quite an achievement too. I've also seen Iron Maiden 25 times, and hundreds of other bands, and I'm proud of that too because it involved a lot of travelling and I've been to a lot of very cool gigs with bands both big and small and met many of my musical heroes.

    In terms of relationships I held down a six year relationship with my first girlfriend where we were both nice to each other most of the time and that's some kind of achievement too I think!

    I've got a radio show and have fun with that which is something I always wanted even when I was a kid, so that's cool too.

    And I've got a lot of great friends, many whom I've known for most of my life. I count myself very lucky really, things always go wrong but overall I've generally had a pretty good time :)

    However, all this is eclipsed by my one single greatest achievement, which is surely my beard :lol:

    yes, I am aware. Normally I wouldn't say such things, but I was pissed off as all hell.

    @ Caveman Ninja
    that's kind of how it was in my town, but I saw it from the other side. there was this band of high school students called Blue Destroy, and all of the guitar guys in high school, myself included, worshiped them. Their main songwriter, Aaron Brooks, would hammer on melodies on his left hand, and play the harmony on the keyboards with his right. They kind of pushed us to go beyond the led zeppelin, pink floyd,
    boston, stuff we were all playing and be more technical. That's when we started to get really into Megadeth and Liquid Tension Experiment. You can still see the impact that they left. The 16-19 year old kids are sooooo much better than any of us were at that age. I expect you'll see the same thing.

    Our "metal" scene sucks here in my town. The heaviest you get (HA!) is metalcore bullshit.

    Did you work on Moon?! I fucking LOVED that film... one of my favourites of last year... what did you do exactly?

    :lol: Thank you sir!

    Yup, that's exactly what happened. For a couple of years we were the only band in town playing melodic metal with guitar solos etc. Now there are loads of them, and while none of them have the songs which put us where we were (we were blessed with a drummer who is the most gifted songwriter I know), the kids now can play a lot better than we could back then!

    Yes, I worked on Moon, I'm credited as Trainee Modelmaker, working with people like Bill Pearson (built the Nostromo model for the original Alien film, plus quite a lot of Red Dwarf's models) and John Lee (among many other things was the team leader for the building of the Houses of Parliament model that was blown up in V for Vendetta), who I had previously met when he was guest tutor on one of our uni projects. I am hugely proud of the film and what it has achieved, not least because of the tiny 2 million pound budget for the entire film. The budget for models and props was only £40,000, which is negligible - I'm sure Jim Cameron's bar tab for Avatar exceeded our budget!

    You worked on Moon? Great film. I'm surprised the budget was so low, the effects, scenery and props were great

    Man, that's amazing! Well done indeed. The model work was partly what made the film for me, gave it a real old-school feel :)
