    Posted: 15 May 2014 at 10:22pm
After a five year spell the 'Getting to know' segment has returned from the wilderness.

This week I was up bright and early and caught the 6.15am flight down to Melbourne to see a forum member who has been here with us since 26th September 2008. In that time he has posted over 7800 times.

Here is my interview with NOCTURNAL.

Where were you born and where do you live now?

Hepburn Springs and now in Caulfield.



Married, Kids, what do they do for a living?

Married 23 years , no kids and Mortgage Broker.



Who is your No.1 Supported team? And who is your favourite player?

Collingwood and Swanny



What other sports do you like to play and watch?

Snow skiing is our main sporting activity , will watch cricket ,AFL and Horse racing , as much as I can.



Tell us something we don't know about you. Any hidden talents?

Part owned Weekend Hussler . No hidden talents



What is your favourite book, movie and CD?

Anything by James Patterson, Notting Hill ( know it almost word perfect) the Boys light up Australian Crawl



When was the last time you had a cry?

A real cry At a friends funeral , misty eyed watching the recent you tube segment of the 2 English lads on UK XFactor



What is your favourite beverage and food?

Italian and Red wine.



Earliest horse racing memory?

Spending cup day at a mates and his old man took us fishing , I was filthy



Favourite race horse past or present?

Weekend Hussler for obvious reasons and Black Caviar for pure excitement



Largest win and worst lose?

Took the $7 Weekend Hussler in the Newmarket in early market for my biggest collect and I had $5k on one of mine that got beaten recently



Most famous person you have met? And would like to meet, why?

Steve Madden from Wolf of Wall Street Fame , love to meet Russell brand as I think he is classic.



Do you have any advice about life for the young fellas on the site who may need your words of wisdom?

Respect your elders that have been through life , don't take growing up for granted



Money is no object, where do you go on holiday and why?

I would like to lose 10kg and put it all back on eating and drinking my way around Italy



If you could meet any person from history who would it be and why?

Martin Luther King an amazing human being



What would you do with your last $20?

Try and turn it into something



Now time to finish up with a few quick answers-

Thoroughbred Village- entertaining .

Politics- no interest

Female Crush- Elle McPherson

Who would play you in a movie- some people have said Vince Vaughan , I would have thought Robbie Coltrane was a better match

Punting- must watch replays , first thoughts are the best

Legend- Viv Richards

24 hours to live- eat and drink my way through the menu and wine list at the Stokehouse



Nocturnal thank you very much for your hospitality. Any chance of a lift back to the airport?

Cheers for the interview mate!

Great stuff Kanga.

Really interesting to get a read on the people on this forum. In this case Noccy comes across as expected - well balanced, middle aged, but a Collingwood fan....please.

Collingwood fans are captains of industry and some of the smartest people in the land.

Unfortunately their football team is hopeless.

Sounds like a good bloke for a mortgage broker! Hepburn Springs, Collingwood, wine, skiing, easy read fiction, punting... all ticks from me.

Kanga pleease interview fiddles. Would be entertaining and interesting.

 Noccy is as good a bloke as anyone on here...and the Notting Hill bit adds to his reputation...good movie, very funny...the fact he admits to it shows he is comfortable in his own skin...

 great interview, Mick...

I'd like to thank everyone for being respectful of this post. It's great I see all the positive chat about a great forumite like Noccy.

I also appreciate the positive feedback for this concept.

The next two victims are booked in. I could easily get another one up and running tomorrow however I think it gives the interviews more importance and respect of I do them once a week.

A few people have been approached and knxoked back the offer. I totally understand that some people like to be private while others have jobs that make it difficult for them to take part.

The idea is for everyone to have fun, have a laugh and enjoy the experience.

Enjoy
