I don't want to be asked questions. I want to ask YOU questions. Come in and say hi!
Do you have plans for World radio domination?
I'd rather be in a band that doesn't get played on the radio ever, but if that doesn't work out, a career in radio would be good. But then, I wouldn't want to be a DJ if I couldn't play what I wanted, so that could narrow the opportunities :(
Zebras. Dead cute, huh? ;)
what would you like to know?
you laughed so much that your sides hurt?
watching arsenal come back against Bolton, we began working on an accent that just evoled into a stand up routine. So funny I fell of the chair.
oh and congratulations or commiserations (i can never tell) on 10K posts.
I was born in Bury-St-Edmunds. What's it like these days?
Changed much? Well, apart from the record shop bit maybe.
Sounds like a narrow escape.
I thought it was quite a sweet little place. Abbey Gardens are pretty.
it's nice to look at alright.
Yes, I am single.
I have a nephew one year older than you.
Do you know a Joey Frost, also resides in Salisbury?
though I'll ask around. I'm bored.
= totally a superhero name
Guitar hero, style hero, geek hero. <3 Joey. My oldest internet friend!
He has eleven guitars. All named after girls he has fancied. Bless him.
Got a new job yet??
Fingers crossed for you.
for no longer being cool? :(
buuut you still cool :)
that you are not pretty, when everyone else disagrees?
What saddens you most in the World?
so I was totally all *popcorn*
go for the chrisjabe version.
You are so lovely.
I hope that one day you see it too.
I'm going to save it on my phone :)
But shouldn't that be commiserations?!
Because I'd miss you :(
At least, not until I find the next internet addiction.
The last one lasted for four years. So I reckon there's a good six months left in me yet!
If you could only ever eat one type of cheese ever again, which one would you choose?
if you were to hand me a cheese board with all the cheeses in the world, british, frend and italian and to the other regions in this fine cheese producing planet we call earth, it would have to be the simple pleasure of Mexicana, peppers in a great british cheddar not only allow me to be patriotic but contenental at the same time!
Have you ever made your fingers bleed through frantic riffing?
Other notable stage injuries include...
Running onstage, jumping off of the drum riser straight into my guitarist's headstock, causing me to bleed from the side of my face for the whole gig.
Blacking out during a slightly over-long scream.
And cracking my teeth on the microphone so my gums bled.
:D And congrats.
THIS is a great way to do it :)
Can you write me a haiku please? Thanks!
jesus mirri, you don't half expect much...but you're a love, so I will do my best :D
Haikus are easy
But sometimes they don't make sense
theft it be
Beauty Turns Joyous
When Autumn becomes Summer
The Season of Lust ;)
i've had in a long time :)
8/10. You only failed because it's factually incorrect. Autumn never becomes summer. I like it though :D
you're right! I just focussed on my two favourite seasons and skipped spring. It would make SO much more sense if it was spring, insted of summer. but then it wouldnt work. eejit. I have other too, but won't bore the "bored" with them.
I prefer it to the dolls
Those were quite freaky.
They may yet make a return. I kinda miss them.
Boris Johnson. Who made him up?
I genuinely had to double-take to make sure it wasn't him. TRUESTORY
Why do the wicked folk on DiS call you the man shaped yawn?
i am quite boring.
- is he interesting? I've not meated him yet.
A mythical man appears and offers you £50,000 to eat some meat. But he doesn't specify what sort. It could be beef, pork, or cat or dog.
Nobody will EVER know. Do you do it?
Unless you mean "meat" as in the sexy way a drunk man asks you to eat his, then I am not sure... especially if it is potentially dog...
How could you possibly risk eating that cutie?
you're a heartless fucker!
ask me a question, and i've got my 5000 coming up in the next two days too so you can ask me another then
How do you feel about genetic modification of animals for things like replacing organs in humans? Has the World gone daft?
You've asked two separate questions, and I'll answer the latter first. The world has gone daft, but it went daft before I was born, in 1981 when Joe Dolce's "Shaddap You Face" beat Ultravox's "Vienna" to the number 1 spot.
Genetic modification of animals for replacing organs in humans, eh? Well, I'm sorry to sound like an animal rights loony, but that's a horrible idea - what does it mean, breeding pigs so, say, we can use their livers to transplant into humans whose livers no longer work? (note: i've no idea if you can actually do that without severe death happening)
HOWEVER, and this has just occurred to me, how different is it to farming animals for meat? After all, in both cases it's merely about the use of animals to help human beings....this is a chin-strokingly interesting topic indeed, hm
And then you have the whole question of what having an animal's organ could do to the human race.
I think it's that aspect I find most frightening.
Tell me about the last time you had butterflies in your tummy.
Or the time before, if that's more appropriate.
5 weeks ago tomorrow, right, I've said too much already!
That was the last time.
If all the hair styling products in the World were outlawed, 1984 style, tomorrow, what would be your new funky cut?
Sad as it seems, I've thought about this for quite a while now.
you wouldnt be able to have a hair cut at all?
i think i would just leave it and grow it long
If you received a £20 note in a birthday card with the explicit instruction to 'indulge yourself', what would you spend it on?
He's not getting any birthday money from me now. Silly John.
As a child, what one thing most made you gasp in amazement, that you can remember?
When was the last time you wanted the ground to open up and swallow you in embarrassment?
quite possibly a fortnight ago, waking up having thrown snowballs, with an accomplice, at a housemates window for half an hour or so after getting back from a club. Our next door neighbour tried taking pictures out of the window with a digital camera :-s
If you could disown one member of your family or a friend forever, who would it be, and why?
with a friend from uni. Reason: we used to be great friends, then he turned a bit shit, then said kind of apologised and said he didn't want to lose me as a friend and all that kind of bullshit and that I shouldn't give up on the friendship, and then proceeded to pretty much everything you can possibly do if you don't want to be friends with someone anymore. I even deleted him off my Facebook, that's when you know it's serious business.
Who is your hero?
I don't have a hero.
am i too late to join in?
Nope. Can you explain to me why the light sabres sometimes change colour in Star Wars? Luke's is at least two different colours (I watched three of them at the weekend, it's really been bugging me).
Incidentally but not at all interestingly, I once knew a dog called Sabre.
so i'll do it now, where you won't see it. The light sabres change colour according to their mood, i haven't worked out which colours relate to which mood yet though, they're notoriously difficult to read.
When was the last time you made a GOOD post, smugface?
Were you the victim of the lemon shark incident, or is my memory a bit hazy? If I'm right, what did ever happen to that girl?
Jimmy Heartbrokenstar got lemon sharked. I think the shark died not so long ago, dunno about the girl.
I wanted it to have a happy ending. Must've been the 'lemon' confusing me.
Lames dressed up as a cow and went to Truck. Where he met the lovely Jo (scarecrow). And they lived happily ever after in Keynsham.
I'm wearing a towel. SAFETY WINK
I don't know your real name. Oops.
So, Games Workshop. What's that all about?
Games Workshop is a long-running gag that Shucks has been playing on me. He's bought up lots of vacated city-centre retail sites, and got some of his weird mates to play board games in them whenever I walk past. He doesn't fool me.
I'm Miranda btw. Hi!
Or ben. Hello!
And now I know. Fancy that. Hello.
Often enough to ensure I stay up all night worrying?
Most of them are of White Dwarf magazine!
Do you? David Mitchell? Hello?
the pain of my broken toe is sending me a bit loopy.
If someone were to introduce themselves to you as the 'global head' of something, would an image pop into your mind?
but probably just a stereotypical image of a guy (or woman) in a suit who attends a lot of meetings.
If you could ask yourself one serious question that you'd really like to know the answer to, what would that question be?
at the cinema.
Being that it's so darn good!
They were having a good old laugh before you arrived!
But so, I should go to bed.
Night sweetiekins x
It's what I'm good at!
Hmm. Anyway, that isn't my question.
Tell me about a media whoring so called 'feminist' that you detest, if such a person exists?
I don't really know. Does Jilly Cooper count? She's a daftie but she makes me laugh lots.
In terms of least favourites, it's a toss up between Germaine and Janet Street-Porter. In a dark alley, with a sock full of snooker balls, there's no saying what I'd do to either of them.
id say germaine has done enough to make up for any current indiscretions. Porter (though i dont mind her) you can smash as much as you like.
But must she persist in making such an utter tit of herself now?
She may've been radical in her day, but sheesh, shut the fuck up when you have nothing new to say, unless it's an addition to grumpy old women, which I doubt I'll ever watch.
I guess my point is: she could've grown old gracefully. She hasn't. Respect: diminished.
few people do grow old gracefully, and germaine greer doesnt seem to be one of those people. shes a bit like the mad old aunt that you continue to humour, because she fought in the war or something. and, thinking about it, it wouldnt have been very feminist to go off and be a quiet housewife or something, would it? and, considering how many stupid people making tits of themselves nowadays, why not join in? Basically, admire what she did, not what she is. and im still letting you have janet street porter, so fairs fair!
How many bands have you been in? Which one did you love the most?
but ones that i've actually written music for and gigged in, 3:
plurals is the one that i like the music of most, but as it's the one that i'm still in, that's a bit predictable
I thought the references to the number of bands you've been in was a bit of a pisstake. Now I'm just gobsmacked!
I'll check them out tomorrow. Ta for links.
but most of them are just me and someone going "hey lets form a band" and not much more than that :)
Questions for you above :)
Just wanted to say hello too.
Does your username refer to one fab city in particular?
also my initials are FAB. My name is FeliCity so I put it all together. But yeah, I wouldn't call myself fab-city if I still lived on the Isle of Wight, that's for sure!
let's get boho, mofo.
That's a really bad introduction, i'm sorry.
(SO much worse than yours, it had to be done)
did you intentionally sneak in after I'd logged out in order to avoid being questioned?
MirriLondon - pretty rad.
i totally forgot i met her at field day, and then at zonino i asked her who she was. and she still acknowledges me! amazing.
I was struggling to remember who you are for a moment there ;)
Can you answer me this please? I NEED TO KNOW.
BASICALLY, light sabres work by focusing energy through a certain type of crystal, and the colour of the blade depends on the colour of the crystal.
Do you have a problem with that?
Do you have a problem with that, punk?
Something about dinosaurs and children.
well done on reaching this most excellent landmark
Can I go now?
but yes I think you may
I'll run now, while my dignity is still intact.
Ask me a question if you want, or don't, but I still want to know what dinosaur was your favorite when you were a child.
PS: I don't actually not care about your dignity, of course. I wouldn't want anything bad to happen to your dignity.
since you didn't bother to ask me in my thread :'(
I ask in all question threads, regardless of the poster.
That's why it cuts so deep.
I'm going to miss some question threads. But since we are both here now, and since I would LOVE to ask you some questions, here you go:
What was your first pet and what was he/she called?
Do you have any siblings? Are you oldest, youngest or somewhere in the middle? How do you feel your birth order affects you?
Shag/marry/kill with DiSers who are currently online(!!!!111!): klaire, fucktherave and me.
Goldfish, but I can't remember his name.
I have one sister. She is younger than me, making me the oldest. I feel that this has left me out on my own in the world somewhat, in the sense that I have no one to go to for advice or anything.
klaire for all 3.
you were doing well until you got to the third one. Anyone familiar with the concept of shag/marry/kill knows you can only use one person for each choice, and so of course must also use all three. God, and I even used the British name for it. (I learned it as sex/marry/push off a cliff.)
I just refuse to pick anyone ahead of Claire for any of them.
that's why I'm so disappointed in you. I will never ask you such an important question again.
Speaking of which, what do you think of Marc Bolan?
As for T Rex, I could take them or leave them. Probably leave them.
that's a lot of posts, it's my bosses 30th today, i'm expecting him to bring in good amounts of food please.
My boss isn't getting his mitts on them!
He's big and from Yorkshire. They might melt in his grasp.
Have you ever intentionally fucked someone over who was quite nice for your own personal gain?
I'm too much of a coward to be an all-out bastard! I'm much more a sticks and stones guy!
are you a self-concious person?
please name ten uses for Vaseline, thanks.
I totally screwed that one up.
Which film do you know almost every line of?
"I love acting. It is so much more real than life."
Who do you think this quote belongs to?
Please describe in as much detail as possible, the last time you were actually out-geeked :D
that I always thought you were a girl, probably something to do with your cutesy user-name. Can you pProve to me that you are a man?
Meet me behind the bikeshed in 10 minutes. I'll be wearing a smoking jacket.
but i shall answer nonetheless.
Ten uses for Vaseline:
1. Using it as hair wax when you run out of VO5
2. Greasing yourself up so you can slip through bars and rob places
3. Chapped lips
4. Chapped "lips"
5. Greasing up your dog's paws so it slips around on the kitchen floor
6. Bin all the contents so you have a nice blue tin in which to store 2p pieces
7. Drawing smiley faces on windows that are really hard to clean off
8. Moulding warts and sticking them to your face on a night out when you think you might fuck a munter - that way you won't be accosted in the first place and avoid herpes
9. To lubricate the poles in a fire station so that when the firefighters slide down it it looks more like they're pole dancing, thus enhancing the "sexy fireman" cliche
10. Using it to lubricate the monkey bars in playgrounds so the kids fall off and break bones
Can I push you to try for another 10?0
handed on a plate, to have a really successful and well-paid career back in Australia, but it would mean leaving London indefinitely, would you do it?
Clue: the correct answer is NO.
it's getting confusing in here today.
right now, the answer would be yes, but that's only because I have been pushed out of my current job. and I'd only go if I had my UK passport sorted out!
however, i'd miss everything here too much!! I mean, I doubt that there is an electro club scene on my doorstep like the one I have now... and and and.. I just love the 'randomness' of this city socially - my life is unplanned socially most weekends and yest still, there is always an amazing time to be had, bands to hear, music acts to check out, new people to meet, snog, love, hate... It's great :)
** I'd really am working on that role as an international consultant when I hit about 40 tho and really want to take a back seat from London... I really really want to be able to jet around the world with my Mac live between two contintents then. And if I don't have a family I plan on leading a very very very nice lifestyle. Geddit?
PS - would miss you too much too. x
Do you believe that Princess Diana's death really was a conspiracy by the royal family because they didn't want Al Fayed associated with her?
true fact - my step dad LOVED diana and he used to go see her all the time, so much so that she recognised him and made a beeline for him when she saw him.
he even got chased down the street once by reporters asking if he was her secret lover!
I love being asked questions.
Except by the NKVD. Those weren't fun questions.
First thought to spring to mind?
If you were a one trick pony, what would your *one* special trick be?
Question courtesy of medulla ^^
ask away. I'm particularly good with gardening / diy questions apparently.
You can ask me anything.
You have the ability to zip back in time and use any (no longer existing) method of transport you like.
What do you chose?
Amazing luxury, and with the benefit of hindsight I'd be able to choose one which didn't crash 'n' burn.
But they were really really slow. Maybe I'd like to be with the Wright Bros. on their first successful flight instead.
The first powered flight was shorter than the length of a jumbo jet. It’d be over very quickly.
do you know anyone who lives in Manchester who may fancy knocking off my husband, just for shits and giggles like?
or killing him? I have friends who would do either, for drugs. I look down on them.
but may I have their numbers? :)
07888762068 thats dave
07855 152271 thats paul, they're both plumbers as well.
this was always guaranteed to get loads of posts cos everyone is so self-obsessed.
plus i reckon she's running out of questions to ask.
I'm always full of questions. The buggers at work are making me actually earn my living so I'm a bit snowed under.
Do you believe that it would be correct and sensible to abolish tradional English in favour of something simple and phonetic?
If your referring to 'Chavspeak' then hell no! There's enough idiots out there already and it wouldn't burden well to encourage a widespread dumbing down of what has been perpetuated for countless generations over the course of history.
Personally I'm a particularly fussy speller and often end up enraged at unforgiveable spelling mistakes. That given I can admit I'm not the most eloquent of persons at times, but the English language is the richest form of communication that we as humans possess.
I don't know, I might just think about it for a while, on my own, with me.
- are you an indie?
don't think I'm really anything. Apart from bad at diy..
Do you sound pretty when you sing?
jasmine will vouch for me, once I actually properly sung along to a muse song and apparently I was "really good", but most of the time I get really self-conscious and 'joke sing'. I don't know whether I sound *pretty* though.
or sunburn. or new born. or bliss.
there's a massive vocal range in some of those, and bugger all in others.
but probably not new born, too low. bliss probably.
Who was your inspiration for your snazzy dress sense?
Have you ever 'sold out'?
Would you please be kind enough to make a short yet entertaining story containing all of the bands listed in your 'music taste' section of your profile?
i'm not ron. i'm oli. i do own a lunchbox. it's in storage.
How much do you pay per month to store that lunchbox, and what's it got in it that makes it so valuable?
stuff so i pay no money per month. it's got a lovely picture of the transformers on the outside. i expect the inside is just full of air from 1989 that still smells like banana and cling film.
getting my hands on your lunchbox now.
I'm only interested in the Transformers!
I'm bored at work. If you're still around, fire away!
Have you seen East is East? What did you think of it?
where someone makes a model of a fanny?
Although I don't remember it specifically by that!
oddly enough that has stayed with me! I think I enjoyed it and found it amusing. Congratulations on your gazillion posts. Your employer would be delighted xx
where the hell have you been?
mine was really rubbish
You ARE that fly, on THAT wall, witnessing THAT historic event.
What is it, and what *really* happened**?
**if in doubt, lie.
look at me i'm replying in the wrong place!!!
the last thing that made you really really happy. Don't care how silly or utterly amazing - I'm talking ear-to-ear grin type happy. Thanks!
Which undesirable character trait do you most despise in yourself?
And I know you read it because you replied to me. D'oh!
