Think I mentioned this on a thread before, but I'm off to a web marketing conference in Leeds this weekend, driving up on Friday (5/6 hr drive - fun!) and then at an all day conference on Saturday and think they have after events drinks (according to accounts of the last time they run this conference the after events drinks finished at 4am!?)

Anyone else have much planned for the weekend?
Harry, I have no idea how big Leeds is, are you out this weekend?

The conference is at the Alea Casino Conference Centre (Clarence Dock)
Do you know it? & the hotel I'm staying in is about 15 mins walk from there

I havent been to Leeds in ages, last time I was there had an amazing night out in the Cockpit, not sure if it'd be your thing though Greg.

I can like to the bands I saw, and it's safe to say I might be one of the only people on here who would like them!

Depending on the bands, I might like them too :p

maybe not though, my music taste is very eclectic, but have some pet peeves...

Muchos appreciatos to Chris for keeping the spambots at bay whilst I was away!
Going to be keeping Chris on with moderator powers, so there's now 3 of us to catch any spam that does pop up, should help keep things tidier :)

Also thanks to Harry for meeting me in Leeds on Friday, enjoyed a few chilled beers in a cool bar :up:

Aye, t'was nice!

Although we did have to meet in the gay part of town*, it looked so wrong me waiting outside a hotel and meeting some random bloke. 'Oh hi, you must be Greg. Drink?'

*I live 5 mins from the gay area, I mean really gay, dressed as sailors kind of gay and Greg's hotel was smack in the middle of it all haha :D

I won't repeat your story of how you "accidentally" ended up in one of the aforementioned gay bars then?!
...I wondered why the hotel was so cheap!!

I found out it was the gay area by accident (see below) a couple of months after moving there, honest.

Haha complete accident! We were just looking for a lively bar and the one that was gayest (in the happy sense) was actually gay (in the gay sense). It wasn't 'til a muscly Bobby Davro had the following conversation with me that I realised haha.

Muscly Bobby Davro: Are you gay?
Me: No mate, no I'm not.
Muscly Bobby Davro: That's ****ing shameful!

And another guy, called Richard, came up to me in there and said 'Hi I'm Richard. Don't worry I'm not a paedophile.' I was like 'Erm well that's okay cos I'm not a child.' :lol:
