Such is the tradition- ask me anything.
I actually missed the 10,000th post, tsk.
I really should though, with job applications and stuff I'm a bit short of time at the moment. Might give it a go later on after the footy.
What do people eat in Norway anyway?
Have you said you 'I love you' to your girlfriend sober yet?
Twice when drunk though. :D
I'm not sure what she'd say back..
hehe so are you planning a big Dawson's Creek moment for the sober one?
Maybe then, see if it feels right. I've only been seeing her 3/4 months or so.
on something constructive, what do you think you could have built by now?
Hmm, that's definitely what I'm going to do when I retire.
.but with the advent of green/brown lego, I think it could be doable.
So far I have liked:
No Age- Nouns
Minus- Great Northern Whalekill
Cancer Bats- Hail Destroyer
Charlottefield- What Are Friends For?
Earth- The Bees Made Honey In the Lions Skull.
Not sure on my fave yet...
the No Age and Charlottefield ones. I shall delve into the others. Probably. Maybe. Possibly.
slam dunk da funk?
a) cut a wagon wheel in half and squish each side onto Anne Widdecombe's naked hooters, leave them there until they fell off then lick the jam that gets stuck on tantalisingly with your tongue
b) have Cliff Richard perched at the end of your bed with an acoustic guitar from 5am - 7:30am, singing a collection of his "greatest hits" every morning for 365 days?
I'd take some pictures and sell them to the Sun, and using the profits undergo hypnotherapy to erase the memory of the experience.
how long a lever would you need to move the Earth?
velocity of an unladen swallow?
I dunno ARRRRHHHHHAAAAA!(sic)
such as the position of the fulcrum, and the exerted pressure on the other end of the lever.
I think the only constant I currently know if the mass of the earth!
what other users do you remember from when you first started posting?
Posters I cant remember too well, -but I remember grockle because it took me ages to work out what 'bf' stood for.
like Larry David's father?
I think Species would win against a single Alien, but would struggle against the numbers normally encountered.
though I think we could be louder, we should just try using all the amps in the practice room.
where should I head to?
as many hurricanes are accompanied by flooding- so stay out of the Meadows/Lenton.
I'd say heading home isn't a bad idea- it's on high ground, and within a (relatively) low rise solid building. Go home, board up the windows, and use the radio to listen to further instructions.
If you're at work at the time, stay away from the windows and try and stick to the core of the building- hide in the basement if possible.
to Home-made's tables and chairs outside? And who would be responsible for a lunch time contingency?
.. was it Wild?
Top Man. The changing room attendant was stood in front of a fan. Good work thinking about the customer first. Lucky she was hot else i'd have punched her face out the back of her head.
..you could have punched her out, then violated her in a changing room?
I've yet to visit a top man in Nottingham.
I'm well top, me!
she frowns upon the violent assault and rape of fitting room staff.
was not taken, i was just stealing girl opinion on jeans. I had a can of coke and offended a beggar. Little else occured.
A DiS lunch should be arranged though cause the little un is off virtually all the time at the moment. Maybe friday, I can coincide with picking up Smash Bros.
Lauren still has my book as well.. but she's at Glasto! Gaah!
Apparently there's somewhere that does 2 for 1 on Thai meals..
i've not seen it.
anyway, yes to this.
I can't do Friday anyway, I'm working through lunch to finish early.
Email may be the future?
What are you talking about young lady. Us older men aren't as web 2.0 as you youngsters.
in my new jeans Emily? I didn't think to ask.
Am I going to be subjected to this horror on Friday?
this would mark any kind of departure, jean-fit wise.
It's far too warm in this office. It's literally ridiculous. What's your bit of the Guildhall like?
in front of a massive window. So I feel like an ant under a magnifying glass as it happens.
It's probably a more interesting view when the students are there.
Thinking about it... when the new freshers arrive, some will be almost 9 years younger than me. Does this make them off limits?
If I invest in some Top Man clobber they might think I'm one of 'them'..
Assuming I'm still here of course.
I will be... :)
of something that exhibits neither of the above qualities.
magic the gathering's just little cards isn't it?
And in warhammer you get SPECIAL DICE.
You can be my Space Marine any time.
to the extent that events will happen as a combination/result of previous and present events. I don't believe there is a singular entitity who controls human 'free will'- meaning to some extent events in the future can be predicted.
Psychologically I always felt that people's behaviour was more based on past experiences than genetic coding- so I'd always favour a more deterministic approach.
(I may have trusted wikipedia too much)
how would it pan out?
Firstly, I think Bono is quite snide and cunning, so would step back initally allowing the two gungemasters to go head to head. I think Edmonds has always had a bit of a psychopathic streak.. but I reckon with his new found fame he would have become complacent, whilst DBP is hungry and bitter, and would probably drown Edmonds in the gunk dunk, where his natty nitwear would become sodden and weigh him down.
As Edmonds lifeless body slumps beneath the lurid gunge, I think Bono would attack Benson Phillips. However, I feel he would hold back, for fear of appearing to be racist, allowing DBP to pull Bono's hat down over his eyes, steal his Red iPod, and ram it down his throat.
exchange a sandwich for friendship?
(that did actually make me laugh just now! REYNOLDS!)
didn't we perform that song once in my bedroom at a party?
we did. highlight of my musical career. fuck playing with the futureheads and six. by seven and floodshock!
there's now a Floodshock! facebook group? I was the 39th person to join. :S
how many make 5ive?
Sorry, I know that wasn't for me.

End of the lesson time for one more question
I got a question.
Do you like me
and i started posting here about 5 years ago
how does this make you feel?
I need to work on that one.
good choice, that's the best of all of them.
...assume good humoured tone in this & above post...
Generally I enjoy things with guns and shouting!
And also with the following things:
Distortion pedals and walls of amps
If anyone could combine the above into one film, I'd probably buy it on DVD.
threatening to destroy the world and the world's only hope was japanese noise musicians playing new and innovative styles of noise music to kill the virus
with useless 'collectors cards' edition from HMV.
If you tell me this isn't an actual film it's going to ruin my afternoon, by the way.
"And the first 30 minutes or so is apparently some noise musician recording vaccuum cleaners run through distortion pedals that are strapped to him and him making feedback on top of a mountain in a huge field and apparently all the music is pure noise or piano and it's all about this noise dude and it's also about a virus that has been spreading in many cities worldwide. It is a suicidal disease and the virus is infected by pictures. People, once infected, come down with the disease, which leads to death. So, the noise musician fights against this virus. And I guess there's all these shots that are like 10 minutes where nothing happens and there's almost no dialogue in the whole film. Sounds fucking AMAZING!"
I need to source a copy of this..
I feel like maybe I've asked you this already, though? But if I don't remember, you get asked it again.
I had loads of dinosaur books as a kid, and the Deinonychus looked consistently awesome in the pictures.
closely followed by Metallica's Some Kind of Monster, though I often get the two confused.
