saucy_tara
Aww!!!!!They are fab photos, but where are the breasty-dumplings??!! wink.gif biggrin.gif
Logicman
I REALLY REALLY wish I coulda been there... if this forum lasts a few more years, maybe I'll get to! *prays* please, God, lt Matazone last... *counts* four more years at least! And let me be able to afford the plane ticket! I shall start saving now, so that I may meet all lf you and be shocked by the fact that Leo's bald.
CommieBastard
My hand's in one of those. That's closer to an actual photo of me than I like.

Diiiiiirtttty tongue.gif

Actually we had to work out who they belonged to and then decide whether to post them or not biggrin.gif

As it turns out, they are mine and I give you permission to post them if you really must rolleyes.gif
Queenie

Don't worry there will be no posting of mammaries unless express permission has been given (see above post wink.gif)

I'm positive I have at least one photo of you so you'll just have to be patient tongue.gif

'Costers' (a.k.a. Costermongers) is a pub not a club and the music was no louder in there than it was in Scruffys from what I can remember. If anything it was quieter sad.gif I didn't dance as I had sobered up rather suddenly and didn't feel like making an a$$ of myself on the dance floor dry.gif

laugh.gif

Unfortunately the best ROCK club in Birmingham (XL's) no longer exists sad.gif *cries*
Mata
Here you go, I didn't take many...

Oi Mata, his name is Ed sad.gif Obviously not as memorable at WeeJ's bloke who seems to be nothing short of hot according to NummyNums

Did no one think Ed was hot? dry.gif *sulks* laugh.gif I do wink.gif

And you're right, I do look slightly mad but then that's probably because I'd been talking to you for a few minutes tongue.gif
Mata
Yep, I think the mania did set in at that point.

I've put Ed's name on there now. I wasn't actually introduced to him at any point during the day and I'm not sure if I got the chance to talk to him at all so I never learnt his name!

Thanks and my bad sad.gif I thought Ed had been introduced to all and sundry (especially sundry as he gets narked if you don't introduce people to him biggrin.gif).

Also Ed's quite a sociable chap usually and he often just introduces himself. I think it had something to do with the footie being on rolleyes.gif

Sorry, I'll remember for next time......er.....even though you'll know who he is......er.....right blink.gif
Mata
Don't worry about it, I was probably sorting out my train ticket when you two arrived so I missed out on the round of introductions. I was never told who you were either but I figured that out pretty quickly!
Industrial Kybosh
There's been some reet good photies thus far... By my usual track record, I'll have finished my film by Christmas. So expect some more in time for Easter.

Musical note - the tune being danced to by Debs and meself (and the uncredited, and mostly unphotographed, Queenie) was 'You Love Us' by the good ol' Manic Street Preachers. Well, if you're gonna dance to something, better make it a classic. Now, if they really had played ABBA... Oooh...

/me has soft-focus thoughs of waltzing across the dancefloor with leo to the strains of 'Dancing Queen'...
Mata
Queenie's either not in the second dancing photo or Debaser is obscuring her... It might be the latter actually now you mention it, I think I can make out her feet...
Industrial Kybosh
Aye, she's only a wee lass... The fact that Debs can obscure her stands testament to that little factoid...

Looking at my camera, it seems I took 16 pics. Of what, I have no idea. I'll have to fire off a few shots of me thrashing Pixie at pool this weekend so that I can find out, and share my discoveries... Well, the good ones, anyway...

Oh again I don't think so sonny Jim! The only photos you'll be taking will be of me beating you!!! tongue.gif

I shall bring my camera and take some of you crying into your pint afterwards too biggrin.gif
Prince Aries
Right sexy group you all are *fierce nodding*

Looks like a great time, I can only hope our three US meets can go off so well happy.gif

Some great pics taken, thanks for posting them guys! Glad to see it was a good time.

And Mata - Thanks for the Commie pic wink.gif laugh.gif Another to add to me collection bwahahahahahah laugh.gif

I could make some lewd comment about 'salty tastes' but I'm not going to be that obvious wink.gif

Cider and black it is. You'd best get the first pint in then as you'll be getting the rest in tongue.gif

We are going slightly off topic here.....

I shall get my photos developed ASAP.

Here is a picture of the maniacal expression I shall adopt as I beat InKy at pool next weekend tongue.gif

Industrial Kybosh
And this will be the look on my face as I count on my fingers the number of times I've beaten you in one afternoon:



I've been trying to remember how many people were taking pics... Leo, Mata and WeeJ/Drarok have made some contributions thus far... Pixie and I have pics in the pipeline... I'm pretty sure Debs had a camera - but he also had a lot of booze in him...

Anyone else getting flash-happy at the meet?

No, no, no *shakes head sadly*. That's the look of horror on your face as I beat you for the 5th time that day!!!! biggrin.gif
Pixelgoth
AND don't forget me laughing at you while I hold my cigar and black and ciggy and you pot the black for 2nd time that day! biggrin.gif



Is there anyway we can get these pictures a sensible size? They are either tiny tiny or massive and won't fit on the page sad.gif Is there any way I can resize them on my computer?
Mata
I changed my monitor settings to as large as they will go and Weej's pics still didn't fit on the screen!
vicrawr
Mata, I'd like to say that you and SPS are two of the best looking guys I've ever seen.

And Pixie's hott too! I'm coming next year (if I can), cuz I'm sure you guys need a redneck to make fun of.
Pixelgoth
QUOTE (IrishGuy @ Sep 9 2003, 03:40 PM)
And Pixie's hott too!

*spits out tea*

What ME?!?!?

*blushes furiously*

Why thank you kind sir! wink.gif
Mata
Cheers Irish!

It's true Pixie, you are very good looking, but then again so are WeeJ and Queenie too!

*blushes even more furiously* Awwwww, ta Mata and I have to say you ain't been hit by the ugly stick either wink.gif

Yes Queenie and WeeJ are honeys but then I is biased as WeeJ is my e-wife and therefore I am gonna think she's gorgeous and Queenie....well......she's just a lil' cutie pie! biggrin.gif

i had a camera, but i don't think i took any pics...there might've been some during my "lost hour"...should check really...
Cath Sparrow
OOOOOOOooooo!!!!! That sounds worrying lost hours + alchol + camra never add up to anything good! Except for us as we roll about the floor with laughter as you find out what you've done. tongue.gif
Industrial Kybosh
Lemme tell you lot - if you think the peeps in the pics look attractive, you should see them in person.

Every one of them benefits from the addition of a third dimension, believe me.

Such fiiiiine ladies... oh my...
leopold
Okay, so I got me arse in gear an threw this together:

Leo's pics from the meet

They aren't all on there cos some were bog awful, frankly. I've still got the vids from the eyeball stunt, but I jus dun have the time to crop 'em jus yet. Damn RL gettin in the way!

My favorite are the "What's with Inky?" pics. Inky man, you rock. biggrin.gif *flashes thumbs up*

And of course Mata was looking exceptionally lovely that day...oh...um...*cough*

((And Pixie, Mata says you have a touch of mania in your eyes, but I don't think so! You possess the most infectious smile I've ever seen!))

You're all so cute. I want to take you home with me!!! wink.gif
Rattgirl
I just look at the pictures and realize that yup...I was right. You guys are some of the coolest people I've never met. And Mata's a fexxy hunk. *sighs* And I still wish I lived in Europe. Anywhere in Europe...except the eastern part.
oobunnie
Is that a Pizza Hut?!

It looks so... restruant like. I never new they had real places that you could sit and eat....with menu's n' everything. Fancy!

I now plan to go to England just to see the Pizza Huts, and if other places are like that. Tell me lets say what a KFC looks like.

Leo those photos rock! I actually laughed out loud laugh.gif

Now I have some photos of Queenie too wink.gif
Mata
Nice pics Leo, the 'What's with InKy?' is my favourite.

Just exactly how much space do you have on your memory card???

Oh, a quick tip for clipping images into smaller sizes using Photoshop...

Use the Actions panel (it's part of the layers menu) to record you resizing one image to your desired height or width (make sure you leave on the option that maintains the ratio or everyone will comeout squished!). There's a little button to make a new action, another button to begin recording, you do the action then stop recording. It's all pretty logical!

Then you go to File>Automate>Batch. The menu that pops up is pretty self-explanatory, but essentially you point it at the files you want to change, tell it where you'd like them to go and what action to perform on them (ie. the one you just recorded) and it'll go off and do the same thing to all the different files. Hurrah!

This process certainly makes my life easier when I have 3000+ frames of animation to convert the file format of for MTV2!
