[21:38:26] <snoozysoft> One thing I found curious was how quiet Violet's character was for the most part. Was it originally planned for her to have more lines?

[21:38:29] <LV54Spacemonkey> Was the squeezy stress doll thing next tot he computer a reference to Dirk Gently or just a thing that you had lying around?

[21:39:20] <DRALEXPGAYWOOD> Did you approach the musician and popular policeman 'Sting' to voice the character of Sting, and if so what did he say?
[21:39:31] <KaravanPark> "don't stand so close to me"
[21:39:32] <mrak> There was a bit planned where a bum was to attack a Xenoxxx scientist but wasn't shot due to reasons. Whereabouts would that have fit into the finished article?

[21:42:55] <LV54Spacemonkey> Are the adverts from Digitser now kinda canonised as being products of Xenoxxx Industries being sent through the portal to our world now?
[21:44:29] <Eyebrows> Photography enthusiast question: what camera(s) did you film the finale on?
[21:44:33] <snoozysoft> this christmas, if we hail xenoxxx especially hard, will we receive a shiny album comprised entirely of sensorium girlybox hits through the vortex?

[21:47:34] <JohnVeness> Violet, what was it like working with Andy again? Shame he couldn't join us.
[21:47:38] -!- rarararar [rarararar!939334bc@Clk-77DEB94C.clients.kiwiirc.com] has joined #questions
[21:47:41] <Cube> was the mispronunciation of goujon an intentional thing or an accident that you went "you know what that's actually ace" about and went with
[21:47:58] <CJJC> Ace, Pete Ace.
[21:48:23] <LV54Spacemonkey> I asked about that goujon pronounciation on the video's comments. i have a theory about that.
[21:49:11] <theoctopus_> Also G.J.’s mispronounciation of Xenoxx, was that accidental too?
[21:49:55] <snoozysoft> i get the feeling theyre all happy accidents that biffo decided to not correct
[21:50:51] <Glyn> Just questions in here please, head over to BV for all your theorising needs ;) :D

[21:51:44] <JohnVeness> Who was the bum actor first seen? I think I got his pre-lubed bumface the next day.
[21:52:39] mrak is now known as Smilin_Peter
[21:53:15] Smilin_Peter is now known as mrak
[21:53:25] <JohnVeness> I like to think the bumcrawlers were left in the tunnels!
[21:53:28] <DRALEXPGAYWOOD> Are there any plans for any Goujon John merchandise? If you sold us t-shirts we could try to get photos of us wearing them in stupid locations in a "Digitiser=Filth" kind of way and create much publicity

[21:55:49] <snoozysoft> I've heard through the grapevine there'll be a DVD - will that bad boy be out in time for a lovely christmas present to torment my younger siblings with?
[21:56:44] <MatthewSmith> Hallo! One for Mr B: What were you originally planning to do with the photos of folk who paid to appear in the show? How To Speak German was entirely wonderful, but I'd be intrigued to learn how you were intending to work them into the finale.
[21:57:15] -!- jim [jim!6d98b07c@Clk-77DEB94C.clients.kiwiirc.com] has joined #questions
[21:58:00] <JohnVeness> Regarding the songs, it'd be great to see the credits for them (composer, lyrics, singer). I believe they are not all CJJC..?
[21:58:53] <jim> What was the original plan for the backer photos in this episode?

[22:00:42] <PeterkVT80> Was Faktori a bit stressed when he sent his last message. It says "ACTIVED" which isn't it a type of cold medicine?
[22:01:24] goujons is now known as chriswyatt
[22:02:10] <JohnVeness> Was there ever a thought to try and get the real GJ (Pete Ace) doing some location filming?
[22:03:44] -!- SpineyOS [SpineyOS!8afbcd79@Clk-77DEB94C.clients.kiwiirc.com] has joined #questions
[22:05:03] <MrBiffo> Peter: buggeration. And yes... I know that I got the character's name wrong. It'll change for the DVD...
[22:05:29] <Glyn> Should that question be stricken from my list?
[22:05:48] <JohnVeness> I'm glad Peter asked that, not me!
[22:05:51] <chriswyatt> Mr Biffo, have you always been obsessed with bums?
[22:05:55] <MrBiffo> Yeah, I answered it here, in case it didn't get through!
[22:06:06] <Glyn> All questions will get through! :P
[22:06:28] <MrBiffo> We'd better crack on. Could be here all night!
[22:06:43] <CJJC> Molotov was just using someone else’s “account”, and had other things on his mind. EXPLAINED.
[22:06:45] <Glyn> I haven't started my own list of questions yet! ;)
[22:08:40] <Glyn> Any more questions? There are currently... 5 in the cue ahead of you.

[22:09:26] <snoozysoft> Will some of the shorter skits and bits ever be expanded upon? I'd like to see some more elaboration on the xenoxxxverse holidays (e.g. hammer day)
[22:10:00] <PixelGuff> MrBiffo: How hard did you laugh when you got your first recording back from Pete?

[22:10:55] <MatthewSmith> So, Lord Brannigan-7 and Goujon John; are they still lurking somewhere out there in the multiverse?
[22:11:12] <liverandonions> Will there be a Christmas single this year?
[22:11:44] <JohnVeness> Forgive me if this was explained on screen and I'm just being slow, but what exactly were we bums? Were they born like that, or were they previously human Xenoxxx employees that got infected? What was my motivation, Mr Director? 😃

[22:15:41] <chriswyatt> What future plans do you have with expanding the Xenoxxx multiverse, e.g. web comics or maybe another series?
[22:15:56] <chriswyatt> *universe I mean
[22:15:57] <SpineyOS> One thing I've been trying to figure out is how the Elon Musk song fit in if everything in FF is set in and up to 1993?
[22:16:05] <Cube> the goujon cinematic universe
[22:16:46] <liverandonions> What happened to Simon Bates' "12" rating?
[22:17:21] <LV54Spacemonkey> Was there any Digitiser references thrown in that people haven't noticed as of yet?

[22:21:24] <JohnVeness> (Re: difficulty Pete Ace filming) I guess that's the downside of many/most Rivers
[22:21:55] <JohnVeness> Whoops. many/most Fiverr people being US-based.
[22:22:25] <Glyn> Mr Biffo: C'mon - questions for Violet too! She's a legend!

[22:24:08] <RFredW> Question: What determined which bits of the trailers didn't make the series proper? (I'm thinking Wozniak, Swan paint, Roaming Thomas, f''rinstance)
[22:24:08] <Nikki> I'm curious about how Violet originally got involved with Digi. What's the story there?
[22:25:09] <CJJC> Violet, what are your fondest memories of the finale, from Biffo first getting in touch to now?

[22:26:11] <JohnVeness> Violet: who designed the look of your character? Was it given to you fully formed, or did you have input or change things?
[22:27:32] <CJJC> Violet, how does this stack up against working with Peter Gabriel?

[22:29:09] <Eyebrows> In terms of famous faces from gaming we all grew up with there's one face I don't recall spotting in FF: did Dominic Diamond not want in, or did you not ask him, or something else?

[22:35:12] <Cube> why did you call it #Questions and not #GoujultationZone
[22:35:37] <chriswyatt> Can you explain what inspired the goujon idea, or was it just a subconscious idea that popped into your head?
[22:35:39] <Glyn> Because you're not asking questions of Goujon John :)
[22:35:43] <GoujonJohn> Cube: Because hush.
[22:35:49] <Cube> =x
[22:35:58] <GoujonJohn> >=)
[22:36:12] <snoozysoft> slammed by the goujon man himself

[22:38:58] <JohnVeness> Violet: You're known as a writer and a presenter rather than an actor. Have you done much acting before, and how did you find it working on the finale? I thought you did very well, by the way!
[22:40:45] -!- rarararar has quit [Read error]
[22:40:57] <snoozysoft> Violet: I don't have a question but I'd just like to say thank you for being one of the many TV folk who showed my younger self the magic of science! I blummin' loved The Big Bang as a kid.
[22:41:14] <snoozysoft> Definitely certain I'm the youngest one here
[22:47:25] -!- KaravanPark has quit [Read error]
[22:47:59] <RFredW> Violet-o-question. Or not question, but discussion point. Glasses vs contact lenses - Steve mentioned that the FF finale was first contact, as t'were. Thoughts?
[22:48:53] <JohnVeness> I don't even understand that question!
[22:49:34] <Glyn> Your questions are important to us, please continue to hold.
[22:50:34] -!- Horsenburger has quit [Read error]
[22:51:31] <MatthewSmith> Here's a geeky one: What was with everybody counting rapidly up to 10 in Advanced Strangulation?
[22:53:28] <JohnVeness> Paul: You don't have to answer this now, but one day it'd be great to have a behind-the-scenes on the "ARG" side of things, like who was involved, anything we missed.
[22:54:42] <RFredW> When I was pitching FF to workmates, I definitely hit a "woah" moment when I realised I was working with video games developers who weren't born when Gamesmaster/Bad Influence were on.
[22:54:46] <Cube> was the implication that yuri had killed their dad in a dadpellet
[22:57:51] -!- theoctopus_ has quit [Quit: theoctopus_]
[23:00:58] <Glyn> CJJC you're being asked a return question.
[23:01:05] <CJJC> VioletBerlin in an interactive thing called Eve
[23:02:41] -!- VioletBerlin has quit [Read error]
[23:03:24] <Glyn> There were outstanding questions for Violet, I will hang on to these and see what can be done later.
[23:04:06] <CJJC> Someone in Goujon Chat asked who did the amazing score for the Finale, but they failed to ask in th proper channel, so I thought i’d do it instead.
[23:05:36] <CJJC> Glyn there’s a President Trump pic too, so time is not strictly as we understand it on this Earth
[23:05:37] <chriswyatt> Biffo mentioned it earlier before the QA started
[23:05:46] <snoozysoft> Glyn feel free to discard my bit from the list, i just sent it to her on twitter
[23:10:56] <SpineyOS> Speaking of Dr Derek Doctors' appearance on FF, I had wondered about that. Is Biffovision yours or the BBC's? I loved that pilot and have forced many friends to watch it over the years.
[23:12:54] -!- mikec has quit [Ping timeout: 180 seconds]
[23:16:19] <SpineyOS> Also: how did Danny Wallace end up being on this? I hadn't ever really got the impression he was much into games (and therefore Digi) before Assassin's Creed 2, but I could be woefully wrong there

[23:25:15] <Glyn> Did warn folks about chatting in here :P
[23:26:29] <mrak> Any chance you could license some of your previous funnies (K&W, Biffovision, And Now The Weather etc.) from the relevant companies for the Digitiser 2000 Youtube channel, even if it involves another Kickstarter?
[23:27:28] <LV54Spacemonkey> What happened to your neighbour that kept trying to get you to watch his dance? Was he not allowed to be in Found Footage?
