Let's see what happened last time, and what's changed.
Favourite film? Wall-E. Toss-up between this and Galaxy Quest, but in the end this is too adorable, even if the second half is rubbish. Then I watched Totoro again. And Mononoke. And Spirited Away. Probably Totoro out of those three, but all good.
Favourite actor/actress? I suppose Martin Freeman, although I'm really not that into TV or film. Benedict Cumberbatch isn't bad either. Still applies. Apart from anything else, Freeman made The Hobbit bearable.
Favourite television/online show? Yu-Gi-Oh: the Abridged Series. It would be Naruto: the Abridged Comedy Fandub Spoof Series Show, but that doesn't update often enough. Although neither does YGO:TAS, to be fair.
Unless Homestuck counts? It has animated segments, and is utterly amazing. Everyone should read/watch it. Why haven't you read/watched it yet!?
Favourite musician/band? Tom Lehrer. (url deleted because I can't post external links for seven days. STUUUUUUUUUUUU!) Still him. Although the Homestuck musicians are very good too.
Hobbies? Gaming, duh. Also playing music, composing, writing and cocking about on here. And cocking about on the Internet in general.
Secret talent? Memory for pointless crap. I know all about competitive Pokémon, for example, despite never having gone much beyond the Elite Four since RSE. I'm not actually a bad drawer either, although I can't shade for toffee.
Favourite sport? Swimming, I suppose? Wouldn't watch it though. Wouldn't watch any of them. I have actually started getting into cricket recently, to my shame. Again, I don't watch it, but I love poring over post-match statistics.
Favourite athlete/sportsman/sportswoman? F**k off. All the way off. That's right. And don't come back.
Favourite food? Oh God, where to begin? I suppose it would be some really nice crispy duck with pancakes and hoi sin sauce. Or possibly bruschetta. Or pasta with meatballs. Or... argh! I really like food. Take bruschetta off that list and replace it with roast beef with Yorkshire pudding and sausage stuffing. I could never be a vegetarian. Never.
Favourite fast food? Subway. Well, sort of. I go in there lured by the smell, thinking how great it's going to be, and then my average-tasting sandwich disintegrates in my hands and showers me in tomato-y lettuce. I haven't had one of these for ages. I'm okay with that.
Favourite cartoon character? Urk, this is a hard one. Like lots of cartoons, but not many characters stand out. If I can use drawn cartoons, I'll go for carcinoGeneticist from Homestuck. Forget cG: Damara's where it's at now. But I'm not giving any more details because SPOILERS.
Person you would most like to meet? No one famous. People tend to disappoint. I suppose I'd like to meet Steven Sondheim, as composer and writer of some of my favourite musicals, but most of all I'd like a big meet-up with all youse fine folks from NGamer. Haven't got any more sociable in the intervening time.
Best advice ever recieved? How to spell "receive". Zing! And it's still wrong.
Alternatively, "don't worry so much". Now I just have to learn not to worry so much. This is never going to happen.
Biggest thrill in life? Playing Rhapsody in Blue in front of the school. Nothing competes with performing, terrifying though it is. I dunno, meeting my current girlfriend was pretty good.
If I could have done it differently... I'd have broken up with my first girlfriend at the six-month mark. Actually she wouldn't have been my first girlfriend because I'd have actually talked to that sweet girl in orchestra instead of being massively tongue-tied. Also I'd have been a much more eloquent and witty person in general. Hey ho. Oh, you had to remind me of this, didn't you, me of yesteryear?
Favourite computer game? Super Mario 64. Still the best after all these years! I would love Nintendo to make me change this, but they haven't. Not yet. Twilight Princess comes close.

I memorised pi up to 101 decimal places back in school, primarily because someone from the girls' school could do 70.[/show-off] Doubt I could do that many now though. Also isn't School Days really creepy? I've only ever heard of the ending...
I wouldn't say School Days is creepy. Sure, there are some intense moments, but that's it, really. I mean, there is much creepier anime out there. I really liked the original game that the anime was based on, too. Hoping some of the sequels will also be released in the West…

Favourite actor/actress? Hmm, don't really have one. Jeff Bridges I guess?
Favourite television/online show? Breaking Bad
Favourite musician/band? SID
Hobbies? Listening to music, Watching Toku shows, Collecting Toku Figures, Self-teaching Japanese, wrestling
Secret talent? Being able to run out of things to say in under 5 minutes : P
Favourite sport? Wrestling /inb4itsnotasport
Favourite athlete/sportsman/sportswoman? Daniel Bryan
Favourite food? Chips
Favourite fast food? Same as above
Favourite cartoon character? If Anime counts, then either L Lawliet, Kisuke Urahara or Roy Mustang (can't choose between them)
Person you would most like to meet? My Japanese friend (who lives in Japan atm making that difficult)
Best advice ever recieved? Honestly can't recall anything in particular that stands out, though I take most advice on board (within reason)
Biggest thrill in life? Nothing particularly exciting has happened thus far, meeting someone from online IRL for the first time was a pretty awesome experience though
If I could have done it differently... So many things honestly, I suppose I should have taken better care of myself in the past really. Also should have ended a LDR I had a few years ago much sooner but strung it out longer than necessary which was a waste of time.
Favourite computer game? Hard one.....either Pokemon Red or Super Mario World

Favourite film? Amélie. Still makes me well up at the end, nearly twelve years after I first saw it.
Favourite actor/actress? Well, Russell Tovey is amazing, and Nathan Fillion is pretty cool. My favourite actress is probably Marion Cotillard.
Favourite television/online show? Doctor Who has slipped from this pedestal in recent times, so Futurama has nipped to the top spot.
Favourite musician/band? A three-way fight between James, The Divine Comedy and Fatboy Slim usually gets given to The Divine Comedy.
Hobbies? Apart from Nintendo gaming and the cinema, er... marking Maths questions?
Secret talent? Hmmm. I'm OK at imitating accents?
Favourite sport? Football, although I no longer feel the thrill of televised football. Just give me the highlights and be done with it!
Favourite athlete/sportsman/sportswoman? Stuart Pearce. His reaction to scoring in the penalty shoot-out against Spain in Euro '96 is my favourite sporting moment (with the possible exception of Ian Woan's goal against Newcastle United that one time. Cor blimey).
Favourite food? Proper fish and chips cannot be beat.
Favourite fast food? See above!
Favourite cartoon character? Fry, from Futurama. The everyman, with about thirty IQ points removed. It's amazing how such a simple creation can be so funny. [sure I said someone else last time!]
Person you would most like to meet? To be honest, more of you guys. A GNamer forumite meet-up must be organised!
Best advice ever recieved? This is still the same as it was last time: "Be yourself, but not too much". Worked like a charm!
Biggest thrill in life? Wow! Owning a purple marker pen has rocked my world recently. On a more serious note, seeing my girlfriend walk through the door after an unexplained hour and a half delay in her arrival time on Wednesday was pretty good.
If I could have done it differently... There's a girl I should have asked out but lost my bottle (which, I swear, I need to attach some sort of GPS sensor to).
Favourite computer game?
