I quite enjoyed Dan Varian's cynical interviewee style.

And Franco - every time someone says 'bon effort', Jesus kills a kitten.

In reply to UKC News: Don't really understand this comment: "Then again no one ever tries Edge Lane if there's a chance they might fall of it". Does this mean everyone supposedly headpoints it? I know this isn't the case by any stretch.

Great effort in fine style. This got me thinking about Mr Pearson...I mean:
Walk of life E9 down from E12, The Promise E7 down from E10 and now this...ground up solo of latest 'last great problem'....is that an elephant I see in the room?

In reply to Craig Smith:

To be fair while it's hard to defend the wild (if unintentional) inaccuracy of the original Walk of Life grade, The Promise was originally done without mats and Return of the Jedi has never been portrayed as cutting edge.

"Return of the Jedi has never been portrayed as cutting edge"

I guess it appearing in ads and getting hyped up on here doesn't count then?
