Here's our own DandyLyons and a friend with Nigel in Vancouver:

There's another WTFer who was so chuffed to meet Nigel and got a great pic with him and I'm embarrassed to say I'm drawing a blank on who it was! :oops:

Someone help me out....

Wasn't it mock? If I recall correctly, mock got Nigel's email.

And didn't Nigel invite Dandy and her friends for coffee or something after she mentioned she was planning a trip to NZ? Or am I making this up (wishful thinking perhaps)? I could have sworn this happened to someone. I so would have taken him up on that offer.

I can't remember who else got their photo taken with him. :hrm:

No, I was just in the tour thread reading Dandy's acct...he gave them suggestions of where to go when they were in Wellington the following month and they chatted for a while. Had a wonderful meet with Nigel and Jemaine. :)

But that coffee invite rings a bell....maybe who I'm trying to think of??

The person I'm remembering is a big fan of Nigel's and was wearing a hat her sister made....maybe? That's what I'm remembering. And Nigel had that big bunch of hair under a hat, i think.... :hrm: Must've been earlier in the tour cuz it was chilly/rainy...grrr! It's gonna drive me crazy!

4e! That's a great pic! Since I know what you look like, my brain just goes right ahead and puts you back in there. :)

Hmm the only other account which sticks out in my mind of a WTF-er meeting Nigel is ASmallTurnip's account in Toronto.

Aww lovely pic, 4ever and just as Laura said I'm putting your beautiful face back in that picture in my mind ;)

I'm almost positive it was ASmallTurnip. I remember seeing the pic in the Toronto thread. She was extremely excited about it, and I don't blame her :D

Yep, I was in that thread when the board stopped working for me again...grrrr...

Here she is with Nigel:

Image

Well, Nigel in the hat I remember.....but I still remember someone else who either had on a hat made by their sister of their sister was also there in a hat, lol.....that sticks in my strange brain for some reason.

(But we're getting lovely shots of Nigel and WTFers, eh? Turns out some of the ones who meet him seem to go away though.....:( Come back!)

Wow, 4ever! Nigel is smoking hot in your photo, his hair all tousled and scruffy. :snakeman: Did you muss up his hair? :eyelashes: Is this when he promised the WIUO US tour? C'mon Nigel, don't let us down. :pray:

He told Dandy they were coming here next year, too. :) He said he wasn't sure if they'd make Canada, but if they did- definitely Vancouver!

Awww. thanks guys.

I was so excited to meet him. He was so great to me, he talked to me for at least 20 minutes I'd say. We talked about WIUO coming to the U.S., he told me that he was working on a project & writing with a friend, we talked about why he didnt tour with the guys before this (he said his visa wasnt in proper order at the time), we talked about the songs they played for NZ WIUO gigs, we talked a lot about the WIUO cd, um im trying to think...All I could think about was how much I wanted to touch his hair, LOL. He is a super nice guy. It was so cold that night and it was at least 130am if not later & he was the only one who stuck around & indulged the fans. He had a lot of fans out there. He seemed quite taken by that. It is very memorable and I'd love to have the chance again.

Also, just wanted to say, this is so good to hear. I'm really kicking myself for not asking him what he was working on/ planning for the future. :doh:
After doing a fair bit of googling ( :oops: ), it's pretty obvious that Nigel's done a lot of acting, mainly theatre, and co-written/devised at least a couple of well-received productions. So yay for more of that :D
BUT he must find it hard getting pulled in so many directions, with the WIUO planning to tour again in March (with at least 2 more gigs already booked in for Jan/Feb), and Bret talking about FotC tours (UK mid next year, and poss NZ/Aus before that??). I wonder how he manages to juggle it all?
