Introduce Yourself (Right On!)

Postby Eean on Fri Jul 18, 2008 2:10 pm

Seeing that this is new talkscape and peeps be unknown and shit. Like klinsmann18 suggested...Feel free to introduce yourself if you like.

Firstly if you get the reference in the thread title you are automatically my friend.
Secondly, I'm a UK Grandaddy Fan.
Thirdly, i have a 'diffffffferent' sense of humour.
Fourthly, I only seen GDID live one time in Sheffield. Some feller kicked my wife.
Fifthly, I have been on the old talkscape for many a time.
Sixthly, I have met a whole bunch of talkscapers and managed not to have killed any of them!
Seventhly, this is what I look like...
Actually it looks more like Taco's......

Hey misters biggs, bestall and warner

Things about me:

- my name is not really Jed.
- I have very big hair and am told on a regular basis that i look like that twat Mika and the guy from Razorlight
- my UK passport says I'm in my mid-twenties
- But I'm actually six
- I'm a journalist and review cool shit
- when I twiddle with my belly button, it makes my penis tingle ever so slightly
- I've got one abnormally long hair on the back of my left knee
- I signed up to the Talkscape bandwagon in the first days of Talkscape mk 2 (Spring 2003 i guess) and posted a monophonic AM 180 ringtone that I'd made on my Nokia 32shitty phone.
- I've met Eean. He gurns a lot.
- I love Grandaddy but am not too fond of Fambly Cat
- I like the minimalistic ones - like Protected from the Rain 'n shit like that.
My favourite Grandaddy thing is Through a Frosty Plate Glass. I like it. I think it's good.
- I once vomitted in a woman's handbag in a club without her realising and then ran away
- The Electric Six song 'Synthesizer' makes my body dance even if i don't want it do
- I also only saw Grandaddy once. Summer 2003 in Bristol, England. Lytle was strumming his guitar and his plectrum flew out of his hand, hit my girlfriend on the nose and then landed on her shoe. I spoke to Jim at length after the gig and he kept calling me Dave even though that's not my name.
- I miss Elliot Smith
- I think Pink Floyd are the greatest band of all time
- I think The Wire is the greatest thing ever to have been on television ever
- I think Wives of Farmers is awesome
- I'm currently wearing a green Mr Buz Grandaddy -shirt
- I saw Meat Loaf play the other day. Pavarotti can sing better than him using flatulance alone.
- I procrastinate by making text funny colours
- You can't ignore my techno

1. I miss Elliott Smith too.
1a. but in a different way to Jed, because we're all different (but not in the eyes of the Lord)
1b. I don't believe in God so ignore the previous reference

2. When I bought my first flat near Brighton I came out of the local Argos (had no money left and had to furnish said flat) and literally bumped into Paul McCartney (when he was with Heather). That made my day more than moving into my new home.

3. My Nan's cousin was a world famous magician (Gardini) who influenced Paul Daniels

4. I've still got my Star Wars toys from when I were a lad. I've always said that I'll never sell them and I won't, even if I develop a crushing crack habit

5. I love Toronto and would like to live there one day.

6. My dad's family are Canadian so there won't be much of a VISA issue. My mother's side hail from Wales but I don't tend to make such a big deal about that (sorry to any taffs out there)

7. Sebadoh III is my favourite album of all time, and will remain so

8. I prefer animals to humans (not in THAT sense, you sick bastards)

9. I'm obsessed with 'MGM Grand' and think it's one of the greatest songs ever

10. I don't really care for about 30% of my Facebook 'friends'

11. oh, and I always seem to panic towards the end of a joke and totally fuck up the punchline.

two! hahahahahaa - I am not eight years old
three! hahahahaa - I am in awe of you guys
four! hahahahaha - I need music to survive, it replenishes my circuits.
five! ok I'll stop that - give me attention; I crave it.
six! - I wish I knew more. Share your knowledge! I'll keep posting 'till you do!
I has a PhD.

I'm Matt, I'm quite normal with smatterings of slightly unnormal thrown in for bad measure. I'm from the UK, I'm still a little confused but will try to contribute anyway, and my mobile phone just vibrated, and seeing as I left it on my dinner plate, it made a really loud rattle, which was amusing.
Welcome back to solid ground my friend.
