You know, you've just picked on one of my favourite joke formats. i.e.:

"I'm a stupid fat smarmy bastard with no life and no friends."
"You're not stupid!"

Makes me laugh every time.

I always remember moving swiftly through the game reviews in Zzap to see if anything caught my attention, then staight on to Paul Glanceys "PG`s Tips" page. Poke mad I was.

Still am !

My first thought when finding the latest issue in the newsagent in our little community was>>>" I wish I had the guts to steal this coz I wont have enough dosh till next week. My face would be pressed up against the schoolbus window trying to see into that dark and damp old store.>>"just one more glimps of the cover before battling my way to my seat..
Doesnt anybody reallize the best mag in the whole world sitting there? Who cares about homework.. Ive got hours of fresh tapeplayer ajusting and real gaming coming up..So what about your amiga 500 you rich scum!!..."
Then apon finally scrounging enough dough ( usually by selling field mushrooms or passionfruits to the tourists ) I would begin the process described by ANT :!:
Tentatively clicks SUBMIT and cringes..oh well, If you can handle C64 you can take a joke.

I always read the rrap first. one time i had a letter published, i dont remember what it was about but i will never forget Lloyds reply
"Trees, trees, trees and bees. Don't forget to feed the goats."

inspired.

I looked at the gold medal and sizzlers first... to see what i would be spending my pocket money on ;-) Then I would check the tips section... allways on the look out for good pokes there were some really tough games on the C64.
