One of the longest running threads of the SFX forum, I started it after enjoying the original on the now long defunct Overgrow forum (google it; not my scene for a long time, but a large part of my life about 12 years before this post). And now, as the SFX forum closes, and as The Getting To Know You Thread (part 2) nears its end, I'm breaking a rule I set myself and starting it here.

The rules are simple. Your post should answer the question in the last post. At the end of your post, ask another question. Put whatever you like in between, but always remember: answer the question, then ask one of your own! Originality is encouraged.

A few caveats. Don't ask unanswerable questions. That kills the thread. And don't descend into conversation, that also kills the thread. Remember, you can say what you like in between, but always answer the previous question and ask another at the end!

So...


What would you improve if you had control of Offtopica 2?

Ummm I would give it a reddit style voting system so we could all give ourselves imaginary internet points to spends as we please!

Honestly I wouldn't have a clue how to manage a message board. If I was in control the site would quietly die from neglect and ill judged humour.

So what would you like to invent?

J.S.Bach - To ask him "what the hell were you thinking with Brandenburg 2?!?!?!?"

(this is a very trumpet-based answer and bonus points to anyone who understands - welcome to my world)

If you could play any instrument, which would it be?

To play - classical
To listen to - either jazz (style varies) or I will join you for the metal

(although sometimes it needs to be classical)
My tastes in music vary hugely depending on my mood - there is a reason I have over 1500 CDs (covering everything from Gregorian Chant to Metal!)

Do you Tweet?

Trek. A thousand times Trek!

Sorry, bit of a Star Trek fan. :smallsmile:

Just watched the Ecclestone Who episode "The End Of The World" (well, the end of it, anyway) and it's made me wonder:

After so many years of new Who, looking back with the same sense of comparison to earlier actor's performances we've imposed on Tennant, Smith and Capaldi, how much is Christopher Ecclestone's take on The Doctor actually "The Doctor"?

A deep and meaningful question
Purely personally, I thought (and still think) that Christopher Eccleston's Doctor was VERY Doctorish, with moments that seemed to come direct from past Doctors. From his first look and "run" I could hear both Troughton and Baker (4 - NEVER 6) being a part of the performance. He also had the facial expressions to go with the offworldly character, in a similar way to Troughton, Baker (4) and McCoy - that halfway point between intergalactic clown and genius.
Again, a purely personal point of view, I found Eccleston to be a more convincing "alien Doctor" than Tennant.



Did you enjoy school?

Learning things, yes. The people, bullying, racism and general depression, not so much.

Who is the best stop motion character(s)?
