  1. Yes, I would add that. I remember making the first posts on the Forums a long time ago. That seems like a lifetime ago and there are certainly a lot of Forums-related memories - some great...some not so! It's a real mix up of feelings behind this decision, but we always come back to the same answer when we have thought this all through... A real thank you to the people who have genuinely supported the Forums over the years - I don't mean by just taking part, but helping out in other ways. That has been really appreciate it and we really do hope you keep in touch. For folk like that
  2. METAL, kind of 恥ずかしい I'm not well up on car details - actually not that interested. I just like ones that look nice and drive well. Oh yes, and good sound system is a must. I had the default speakers replaced and a subwoofer put under the drivers seat. These things are extemely important. Something to do with rear wheel drive and not being 4wd.
  3. I did indeed... until I changed it. Was getting a bit old. That one was ok through the winter though.
  4. 634-maru, i have a BRZ and I love it. But, it's not a snow country winter car! Thanks to a local friend, I drive a K car in the winter months while the BRZ has a long sleep in the garage. Something of a comedown, but for me it's worth it to enjoy driving the BRZ April to November. Wouldn't be driving in winter though. Do contact me if you want to know more.
  5. We haven't decided what we're going to do with this kind of thing next season. We'll let people know around November.
  6. There's probably various things we could do 'to (try to) make lots of money', doesn't mean that I and my colleagues wish to spend our lives doing them though. Travel agency kind of work has absolutely no appeal to me, so you won't be seeing that here any time soon.
  7. You're right on that. But I'm pretty sure I recall him asking on the phone if I could use chopsticks and how it would be interesting to viewers if when I had lunch it was eating with them and that kind of stuff. I can well imagine they would have wanted to add in as much igirisu puppet nonsense in there as possible.
  8. Well done Chriselle! A number of times I have been asked to do some silly tv stuff. The worst one was a Niigata local station that wanted to do a 'gambatte iru' gaikokujin piece. They explained to me that it would take half a day, they wanted to come to the office and film me talking on the phone (!), eating lunch (!!), drinking coffee, talking to unspecified locals apparently about anything, and typing on the computer keyboard (!!!). No kidding. Perhaps come into my home too. Er, no, I don't think so. Just the idea of it horrifies me!
  9. I'm afraid that even with only the briefest of information we were told, we all had to sign complicated NDAs. They wouldn't let us out of the room otherwise.
  10. My wife and I were at the local neighborhood annual meeting today. Part of the huge resort complex that is Mt Granview is in our neighborhood so there were a few Mt Granview related things, some of which I cannot reveal at this time (as you might expect). It was funny though, at the nomikai part at the end when the beer and sake was flowing, I overheard one of the old guys mentioning to my wife next to me how they were really surprised at the number of foreigners at Mt Granview this year. (I don't think he knew what I did or anything like that, he just came up with it).
  11. Well done guys! Looks like a fine day. I'm afraid I think lots of those buildings dotted around are unoccupied..... though I have not actually been up to that area myself. Mick will have the latest on that. Perhaps with all the redevelopment going on at Mt Granview, there may have been some changes. That run off to the left might even have been part of Mt Granview one day I think, so they are probably just in that transition redevelopment phase. It's brill living near Mt Granview though. Not too close to the bustling car parks and base plaza. It somehow feels right that the clo
  12. Congratulations! If I had known, I'd have invited you round for cake, crisps and pop..... secret World HQ here is just over 1km from Mt Granview, I'm looking up at it's soaring peaks now actually.
