There have been a few at various industry type events. These are mostly limited to LA, NY and Vegas during NAB it seems though.

I can make it if you hold one in Newcastle. :)

Here's some information about one of the most trendy and cosmopolitan places in Europe.

There are now enough in the UK to make it somewhat worthwhile, I guess.

Anyone interested?

So Matthew, were you a student at Royal Grammar School, Newcastle and can we call you a Novocastrian? Also how come you don't have the Arms of Newcastle upon Tyne on your post somewhere? If El Paso had a cool logo like that I'd have it on mine. If we did have a coat of arms it'd probably be a rattlesnake covered in dirt from a sandstorm. And what famous landmark listed do you live near the famous Grey Street? Our most famous landmark is probably the grave of the imfamous gunfighter John Wesley Harden the most dangerous killer of the old west, who is reputed to have shot 44 men, one for snoring. Hardin was gunned down, shot in the back in the Acme Saloon in El Paso in 1895 while playing dice by Constable John Selman, a gunman who had manage to get elected and was hired by Martin Morose to kill Hardin when Morose found out Hardin was having an affair with his wife. The ironical part of it was Hardin was pretty much reformed, having spent 15 years in prison, studied law and become a lawyer. He had given up drinking and was trying to live a decent life. Just goes to show ya, it never pays to be too decent. B)

I think a meet up would be fun. I doubt I could make it unless it was somewhere in the midwest (then I could probably just drive) or somewhere like NAB.

Here's a photographic tour of Fenham. All of these locations are within half a mile of my home. The village green is even at the bottom of my street. :)

well im from chicago and always looking for people to pick brains with on cinematography. But im sure im the only chicago native on these boards.
I though however do belong on other forums where meet ups are usual and well its weird it brings people closer together and its just nice putting faces onto screen names.

so if any one in the chi-twizzle(chicago) wants to meet up im all for it.

I like knowing that people from other countries dislike the US government as much, or more as some Americans. It kind of puts it in a sort of new perspective (at least for me, anyways....and I don't like the government now either I might add)

I live in St. Louis and I've never been to Chicago. Pretty much everyone I know here has been there. Sometime durring my totally busy summer (probably would be sacrificing any time that I'd actually be home for this) I wan't to take a road trip to Chicago and then to Memphis. ...Yea, sorry, this was kinda off topic. :rolleyes:

Wow, that's a really good idea. I've always wanted to write an autobiography book, but I don't understand how people write those and remember everything in and about their life. I'd just write every day and write about what happened that day (kinda like a diary) and just turn it into a book. But then I decided not to do it.
I think a movie is a much better idea. I'd definately go see it. It would be a great thing, too, to pass on to your children and stuff.
