I can't think of anything comparable that I do right now.


How about the fact, that you constantly post the same old images of your mug. with maybe 12 months seperating some of them.

Kinda an inherent problem with all cover albums, I guess, but hopefully with time they'll develop charms of their own. Anyway, I'm still gonna buy it.

Look, I'm doing my part to not berate you at every turn as part of my great TW Comeback, so if you could kindly do your part (i.e. don't respond to my posts with obnoxious nonsense) I think we'll both be much happier.

Understood, we are currently suffering a heatwave in the UK, apologies for my daft replies, the heat has gone to my head.

that book looks fucked up. reminds me of clockwork orange

eno actually decided at some point after achieving success as a musician to do something similar and randomly select a new career to embark on. the gods of randomness came up with ship repair or something, but he never followed through (with good reason)

Re: Idiosyncrasies new [re: dice]

i tend to do shit in multiples of 6 or 44


That's interesting. There was a point in my life where everything I did had to be even- like if I picked something up with my left hand, I would then have to pick up something of comparable weight with my right.

Now, I only think in multiples of six. I don't actually do things in multiples, only think about them that way. It usually works that way with sentences. If someone is talking to me, or I hear a sentence on TV, many times I will have to count the syllables in the sentence and make it add up to a multiple of six. If it doesn't end in a multiple of six, I will cheat by counting a period as one syllable or three syllables- something like that. In extreme cases, the resulting number is allowed to be a multiple of three. But only in extreme cases.

Nibblin' nutz new [re: JarethsGirl]  

I'm just glad you understood what Twixes and Ferrero Rochers were: I wasn't sure if these European delicacies had reached you over there. Did you ever have those cheesy (and you kow how much I like cheese) ads on TV that were about an ambassador's reception: a waiter was carrying a huge gold plate with a cone-shaped structure of Ferrero Rochers on it, and this foreign-sounding lady (what the hell accent was that?) picks one of those babies up and says, "Ambassador, with these chocolates you are really spoiling us!" That is a cult ad in the UK, I'm telling' ya.

I like the sound of the crackers/melted cheese combo. It reminds me of pulling off the best and cheesiest nachos from the top of the bowl in Mexican restaurants before anyone else gets them. They have to eat the soggy ones at the bottom, drowning in the guacamole, sour cream and salsa (although they're quite edible too).

Nice to meet someone who shares my little 'foibles' ('idiosyncracies' sounds like an insult ).

I will drug you and fuck you, on the perma-frost.

To Strawman and Dogz new [re: Strawman]  

You both have to leave a building the same way you entered it, right? But what if it's one of those shops where you can only get in one door and out the other, you know, like those automatic opening ones in supermarkets? Do you barge past like some kind of crazy, pushing the door back the wrong way with the strength only a robot with OCD could have, before escaping into the free world the way you came?

I will drug you and fuck you, on the perma-frost.

It's supposed to be a French accent I think, but the actress they got clearly isn't too sure about the difference between French and Italian accents.

Remember, in ad-world, if you want to suggest something is vaguely naughty and very sophisticated, you ham up the French connection. Whereas if you want clinical efficiency and cold ruthless engineering, you hire the bloke who does a great German accent.

It's a lot lighter in the flesh than the Wikipedia entry makes it sound. Same sort of territory as Catch 22.

Well if you're going to nitpick, wrong - and I've never exited a building the same way as I entered it with dogz, 'least not to my knowledge.

And I don't recall ever visiting a supermarket that didn't have its entrance & exit doors within close vicinity.

So that'll do for me.
