Dan in real life...
I escaped the womb during the heatwave of '76. Elton John and Kiki Dee were at number one with Don't Go Breaking My Heart. I really should have listened.
The Human League released Don't you Want Me. I'm pretty sure my love of electronic music started here. But not a love of cocktail bars.
My nan got me a ZX Spectrum for Christmas. Horace Goes Skiing and Jet Set Willy changed everything.
I read my first book by Terrance Dicks.
What a hero. He's up there with Bowie.
I recreated The Cure's Lullaby promo as part of my Theatre A Level. It was more disturbing than the actual video. I also grew a floppy, new-wave fringe.
I chopped off the fringe and got my first marketing job. I demoed my credentials by creating a James Bond themed Excel template. I've never looked back. Cheers, boys.
I managed my first website launch.
45+ websites later, I still get a kick out of it.
I attended my first E3 and met the voice of Mario. Thumbsticks was launched. A podcast followed, as did The BGM Show.
