Tonight I realised the hottest thing a girl can say to me is that they're obsessed with Animal Collective.
mentions of obsessions and animal collectives would come as a bonus however
i think the time attached to the post says it all. do i have to actually type that it was a joke? yes.
solace in the fact that you'd imply that i ever had any
Which does not help my drunken lust in any way. LUST I say! Why cant all girls be hot and like animal collective. Is it REALLY that hard for that to be a reality?
I've found a few but one of them was ginger.
with teh gingers?
But she was literally a red head
i always wanted red hair
saying that, i'm struggling to think of anyone i've ever met who will have heard of Animal Collective. I don't think this is a good thing
A bit of musical similarity with someone real would be nice, i guess
sorry, everyone. it was a MAN.
I realised I want to meet girls who are into dance music, preferrably ones who know a lot more than I do. I don't think I have any interest in indie any more
There's 3 (possibly 4) girls on there I'd like to speak to. Sadly one of them lives in America, so I guess she's out the picture. How do you go about it without coming across like a nutcase? What the hell do I say as a kick-off?
Yeah I'm hitting the minimal techno hard at the moment. and loads of Air France. I don't know if you can make such a conscious decision, but you can try and aim in a certain direction, so to speak. I think.
subscribing thing is pretty funny. ever since a certain 19 year old girl added me, all of her male friends seem to be checking my profile late at night. i find it somewhat humorous that im being scoped out.
i just dont know what theyre looking for!
yeah i know.
thank god for flickr.
subscribers only subscribe so they can see who visits there page, but then you get a bit paranoid about visiting other subscribers pages and not wanting to be seen like a stalker or so. anyway of my friends apart from the recent influx of disers they are all from america so I chat music but i'll probably never see them, so its cool.
thank you. Its nice to hear that maybe girls won't think you're an insane internet stalker weirdo just because you think they're a) hot, and b) have excellent music taste. I always gravitate towards the negative assumption, its not good.
One of my best pals Dan is second in command at Boomkat, awesome guy. Its a bit expensive but they're really good. Yeah a happy medium definitely exists, same applies to music imo. Like, it'd be great to have niche areas in common but not so much that you AGREE ON EVERY LAST THING. That'd be dull. You (and anyone else who uses it, for that matter) will probably be able to watch me fail miserably on last fm as it happens anyway! Surely there's got to be a book equivalent of last fm?
Haha! So I befriend guys you fancy, then line them up for you? Makes sense, sort of like a 'finders fee' in recruitment circles. Lets blue sky it!
as such really. </LATE SHIFT>
Damn. What makes you say that? I did have a pretty bad obsession with watching The World At War a few years ago, admittedly. I'm just after some full-on Bravo Two Zero type action!
is watching Daring Raids Of World War II. I'll keep that under wraps though. Ross Kemp, he pulls of chickens heads with his bare hands, and doesn't think about getting hot & heavy with other men EVER. So, y'know, don't even talk about it, because its not true.
Smooth! like Sáde! I'll accept it. Though don't think I'm going to just let this character assassination slide
I first got told that he was in no way inclinded towards men about 3 months ago by my flatmate, and she's a teacher! Even teachers know! And they don't work in the meeeeedia or anything!
Ross Kemp is NOT gay.
you can find your neighbours and limit the search by age & sex. score!
I can't anyway. Not when you've got audiobooks and Pimsleur's basic French classes listed on there and you can't remember how to delete them.
It is the posing pouch/cycling shorts of the internet. I'm on display in all my disgusting, lumpy glory.
it seem to mostly consist of ways to pull french people. there was a whole lesson about trying it on with a married lass.
pas mademoiselle; madame.
Ah, je comprends. est-ce que vous voudriez boire quelque chose avec moi, madame?
non, monsieur. non.
Although my housemate told me that the German way to pull is to stare completely unpassionately at your target until they succumb to your gaze of irresistibility
where you held the other person's chin and the first one to laugh loses. Once I'd got over the strangeness of it I was quite good.
Maybe I just have a funny face.
he pretty much won her over via his table football skills. what an age we live in. moon pie!
or a frenchman
or an italian
or an afghanee
maybe I'm just rubbish :(
the other day; I've got a lovely reading of it that I can send you via internet magic if you like (or.. a CD in the post more likely).
Internet dates! They are excellent and not at all awkward, ever (warningmaynotbetrueinallcases). What will be your first move? Your opening gambit?
if their a subscriber they're intrigued at who this could be and then they have a look at your page, and this isn't too unnormal, maybe you leavea shout on the wall, then it all blossoms from there and you get married and have kids in three weeks, last.fm gives you quick gestation.
then you can delete the records of the shouts in the recent news thing, ta dah, no one will ever know of your classic last.fm stalking.
i'm a theorist, i don't really "do it" in real life, ahem.
i'm a old cynical last.fmer, i don't mind if people see me snooping around.
i'll go to the two high places gigs i think, i forget what i'm going to but i should have 20 lined up until christmas, erk a bit too much.
i know what you mean, well theres Zach Hill in december. I'm hoping Fennesz does a date as well before NBC. Lichens is pretty awe-inspiring.
so that should induce a tour/one off gig in london. can't wait.
is a useful but dangerous tactic in this modern age if you actually -have- done it before. people are good at googling. stuff gets archived on forums and that.
Generally, i think a bit of weird is fine. it's an intrinsically weird way to meet someone so if they can't cope with that, then they can get tae fuck.
I have no idea what I'd do on there.
1. oh emm gee you like [band x]; have you heard [band y]?
"Q: what is one of the best things to see when looking at someone's last.fm profile for the first time? A: copious lashings of The Organ, that is what is the best."
if I'd suggested a 'better' (read: more obscure) band for you to be listening to, then I'd'a been a textbook last.fm lech
want him on your patio?
of messages from boys i don't know saying stuff like 'omg, yr music taste is totally rad' and trying to engage me in conversation and things like that.
one guy was a bit mental and i had to block him because everytime i looked at my profile he seemed to know and he'd be like 'hey, you just looked at your profile' and he'd get all angry because i didn't reply and all he ever seemed to listen to was my personal radio channel.
in a enticement procedure. "engaging target: NEEEOOOOWWW"
Now that you've blocked him, can he still listen to your radio? He probably just listens to static noise now, while weeping
permission to flick hair away from face?
your flightpath is clear of all intercepting traffic, commencing transmission of unpleasant erection-prevention imagery in 5.. 4.. 3..
Because you're casting your rod in the right direction, honey pie.
is FROWNING STERNLY at you.
even though i think i technically am one. i'm not self loathing either.
"Wow, you're so indie, please sleep with me."
"No, I hate indies. God you're all so boring, go away."
"But you are an indie."
joy >>>>>> negativity.
If you find it chafes, wear a t-shirt underneath.
and great people who have the polar opposite taste/no interest whatsoever. do you guys really use bands as a personality substitute? that's pretty weird brah
but i'm really nice :(
I'M FREE, LIKE THE REST OF MY LIFE.
but not exactly.
an amazing place.
they stole our name, bitches.
we have the villa pop factory. CANTBEBEATEN.
i'll get some biscuits in
I don't think I could date any of these people. they are all either men with beards, maybe-hot-but-what's-the-point girls who live a billion miles away, or emo scenester boys. Although that thread klaire posted last night did kinda pique my interest, so that last group is out in front at the moment. let's get in that cupboard.
even people who i like, kinda know.
i hate it when they leave you messages saying 'hi, i seen you looking at my profile' or something. it makes me nervous.
I didn't realise that subscribers could see who had visited their page. I looked at this one girls profile a bunch of times but she didn't seem to mind as she added me as a friend eventually.
4 of my neighbours are girls. 3 Americans and one from the Netherlands.
MORE BOYS LIKE THIS IRLZ. pleasethnx.
my lastfm neighbours are all in the us&canada.
i don't live there :(
(checks profile to check sex...)
Hey Dolly, I not only like Patrick Wolf, I like holding hands and long walks along canals in autumn.
I mean, er, drawing silly pictures on window condensation and sudden silences where more is said than in a lifetime of words also.
into a montage with backing music. And of course twirling and shared laughter
No wonder we get threads like "Is there any girl on here who hasn't slept with someone here", they can hardly not in a desperate sausage fest like this
I noticed that thread and didn't bother opening it. Maybe that was the wrong thing to do. I should've opened that sucker up and told everyone about my tandem
I'll fap and cry to it at the same time, and you won't get a better user review than that.
they think is generally only liked by other boys. Liking the same bands doesn't immediately make you kindred spirits.
It would be nicer and more democratic if they were perceptive enough to see who had the potential to like music given the oppertunity.
I can just imagine a girl jumping around and going 'whey woo la la la' just like Animal Collective do. Don't like it
i showed it to my friend and was like THIS IS THE VIDEO FOR A BAND I LIKE and they gave me scared looks :(
so yeah, what would this involve. exorcism?
I'M INTERESTED IN YR SERVICES.
