Anyone done this?
Seems a bit stupid to me.
it was at reading.
i was really drunk.
i was strapped to a pilled up blonde girl whose name i didn't know.
the prodigy were on the mainstage in the background.
i couldn't see a bloody thing as i wasn't allowed to wear my glasses.
it was just about the BEST THING EVER.
and then made us all watch the free video he got of him doing the jump over and over and over and over and over and over again. And if you were with a friend who HADN'T seen the video, out it came again and again and again until the sun set in despair at such crass repitition. So I agree with Bob, having done one by proxy 342 times
videos of any of my friends, or anybody at all for that matter, doing 'extreme' sports. Yes, you enjoyed it and it was a 'crazy rush' now go and enjoy it by yourself in your own bedroom.
why do you think it's stupid?
Prole mentioned something else and I decided to respond to it.
I can understand why someone might want to bungee jump off of a beautifully situated bridge in a creek in New Zealand but in a car park in Reading? Nope.
anyway: because it was fun.
Maybe I'll do it then.
and when a band he was in 'did well' I had to 'show interest' in various videos and promos he would make us watch and I made comments once which meant I was 'jealous', so I had to be 'approving' of the bungee jump - he's a very close friend so I respect what he does but enjoying things by proxy is quite hard. I was happy for him of course
in Greece when I was on holiday at the ripe age of 18. I loved it...I jumped off backwards for the second one...it's, like, a totally bigger buzz maaaan.
I haven't done one since...I'm saving myself for that massive one in New Zealand.
I actually have a pic of me in mid air. In illuminous orange swim shorts.
I'll send it over...Do you have a colour fax where you are?
and upload it to photobucket so we can all see.
Maybe it should be the cover to your next single?
the next single is called - "The Boy Who Bungeed in Illuminous Orange Shorts while on Holiday in Greece".
It's almost too perfect.
