So, here we are again....

Over to you and I promise not to touch it again :roll:

Haha...we really shouldn't let you be in charge should we? :P

Anyway, here's the link to the thread on the Edgar Wright forum again to give you some ideas:

If you take a look in the 'Announcements' section of the forum, you will find 'Julian's Birthday Project', and in there are the instructions of what to do to take part. Basically, prepare a message or picture that you would like to be included in a birthday 'card' to be printed out and sent to Julian for his birthday. Here is a link to the Julian's Birthday project thread....http://www.julianrhind-tutt.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=538

Good luck :D

Loved your South Park Mac FQ ! Are you gonna use it or was it just to prompt some ideas?!
Anyway, I have an idea of my own; a home-made CD for Julian - 2 songs from each decade of his 40 years.

Songs I have thought of including are:

1, You really got me going - The Kinks
2, Increasing Heartbeats (you know the one in GW - like I have to explain that one?! - anyway not sure who its by so thats why I wrote the former)
3, Happy Birthday - Altered Images (it was listening to this that actually gave me the idea in the first place! Chose the song simply for the message!)
4, A couple of Bowie songs - Life on Mars, Heroes or whatever
5, Bob Dylan
and as for songs from the "noughtees"; not sure about any - can anyone help?...
...And more importantly - what do people think, or is it utterly ridiculous?!!

It is a good idea, but it'd probably make more sense for you to send it to him directly...seeing as our thing is just this card/book of messages. We can't really have everyone sending in other bits and bobs to be included too, or the package would be massive!

And yes I am planning on using South Park Mac, unless I can think of something better!

Wise words indeed FQ and you do have a point - the forum is not made of money after all?!!! It always seems to be you that make me think logically ( I do "rush into things" without thinking - :duh: )

I shall post a message, in the relevent place, in due course...

I posted the finished card/booklet off to him on Saturday! I took some photos before I sent it so I will try and get them up later if my internet behaves. :)

As you can see, it's like a little booklet made up of different colours of card. I hope it's ok!

It looks great FQ :WD: Thanks for all the effort you've put into it. :clap:

I'm sure The Birthday Boy will be very appreciative.

Thanks FQ for putting that together on our behalf, very good.

Liked the cake and the balloons (wasn't there some Channel 4 series a while ago that ended with a scene about cake and balloons?) :lol:
