And of course profanisaurus. I love the little pastiches they do of Jennings and stuff.

Isn't it nice when we all agree on something?

Anyone remember The Diary Of Samual L Pepys where Samuel L Jackson played the eponymous diarist? Very, very clever stuff and totally hilarious.

Anyone read the strips: 'The Hunch Back Of Notre Dame's Got Talent.' And a little further back 'Miniature Granddad.' Genious. If you grew up with Viz, Chris Donald's semi autobiographical book: 'Rude Kids' is an excellent read. If you didn't. It's probably rubbish. I had this article published by Viz at the height of the bird flu media storm:

PANDEMIC PANDEMONIUM PREDICTED

Experts warned that another flu pandemic could be predicted within the nest five years. Many predictionists warned that the next prediction could be even worse than the recent prediction with as twice the number of people predicted to die. "It's not a case of if there will be another prediction but when," an expert predicted.

Prescient or what.

Very good :D

My favourite short piece recently was the one about Richard Fairbrass being too sexy for the lease on his flat. Perfect in just about every way.

I remember reading a few Viz compilations and almost crying with laughter. I was 15 though.

I was looking forward to framing my first proper writing cheque, but they paid me direct via the PACS system. Framing the receipt/invoice doesn't really seem the same. :(

I kept the invoice too, someone suggested framing it, but to be honest it's pretty ugly bit of paper. :)

Quote: Griff @ November 2 2009, 4:01 PM GMT I've got a photocopy of my first writing cheque, for a short story I sold for £250.00 in 1995. How I looked forward to a life of profitable writing. As it turned out, the next one (not counting day job stuff) was for about £20.00 the following year, and the one after that was about £10.00 for a NewsRevue sketch about Ruth Kelly in 2007.


Did you photocopy Ruth Kelly ?

Atleast you didn't fax her.
