    To become someone that I can be proud of, I guess. I'd love to craft at least one piece of music that I can truly say was completely honest. Something striking in either beauty or ugliness but that actually says everything about me. I'd like to be able to sum myself up in something like that, even though I know it's impossible. I guess my main priority in life is to raise a family. I'd love to meet a girl to build a home around. I'd love to have kids and do a good job raising them. Which is weird, because I've never really been much of a family kinda guy. I have a great family that I'm just not that involved in...but I guess you always want what you don't have, right?

    I mean, not yet. Definitely not ****in' yet. I'm not done being a kid myself, yet.

    Honestly, I haven't really acheived anything that I'm all that proud of. I'm still alive, which is pretty cool. I have incredible friends who I've known for over half my life, which is an acheivement. Apart from that...nothing really. Actually, I dunno; having the lowest rate of attendence in school and not getting kicked out is something that still makes me smile.

    Quote Originally Posted by Redmist View Post

    I've become a pretty ****ty guitarist, which I kinda regret. I've changed a lot since I was a kid...I regret a lot of stuff I said and did back then. Certain words should never have passed my lips, certain rocks should never have left my hand and I definitely should never have been so weak. I regret that.

    In my own selfish way though, I guess my biggest regret is not saving a certain relationship. It was well within my power to do it...but I didn't. That's something I still think about almost daily.

    I doubt that any of you really know much about me at all and to be honest, there isn't a whole lot to know. I'm pretty boring. So yeah...I dunno. I'll come back to this one. Maybe.

    Quote Originally Posted by Redmist View Post

    That I'm not as funny as I think I am. I'm actually well aware that I'm not funny.

    Ain't gonna stop me trying though.

    I have a different philosophical truth for every day. All of them are pretty much pointless and meaningless and end in drunken, dumbass, pompous, psuedo-intellectual rants to a group of bored friends that just wish I would shut the **** up.

    I guess my latest one is that thoughts and words are ****ing useless without actions to back them up. I hope I stick with that one. At least until I'm rich.

    A more specific example: My dad went on a trip when I was a kid. I was like five or six years old, I think. It wasn't a long trip or anything, just a week in Dublin with some friends to run the marathon. When he came back he brought me gifts; a box of chocolates and a teddy bear (I still liked teddy bears when I was five...I don't know if that's embarrassingly late in life and frankly I don't care). Anyway, when he came back I had this huge fight with him. I have no idea what it was about but I said some pretty savage things that I had no business saying to him. I tried to run away but he stopped me at the gate and pretty much forced me back into the house. I was crying and screaming and cursing and trying to fight him off me and whatever. That wasn't normal for me...I really wish I knew what made me so upset.

    Anyway, I ran to my room and I took the teddy bear that he had given me and threw it out into the hall and lay in my room crying for hours.

    He came up later and didn't say anything, just put the bear in my arms and patted me on the head. That was all it took. I guess that was it...I knew it was okay and that I was forgiven and that he was there for me. That was a good feeling. Just being forgiven and accepted. I still remember that pretty vividly.

    Actually, apart from at a funeral, I'm pretty sure that was the last time I've cried. Huh.

    Judging by my hairline, I'll probably be well on my way to being bald. I'm not looking forward to that. No offence, of course.

    I can't pick one thing, I'd change pretty much everything.

    I guess it's a toss up between not being so directionless and not being hurt so much by everything.

    Probably the directionless thing.

    Christ, man. That took it out of me. I'm starting to develop the claw, I think...

    **** man, as long as they're not crotchless then you're probably okay. Jeans are timeless. I like ripped up jeans but obviously whatever suits you.

    And thanks for being the first person to ever ever ever come to me in search of fashion advice. I can cross that off the aul bucket list now.

    I've been to the States a couple of times, actually. NYC thrice, Orlando twice, Tampa once and Washington D.C. once. I loved it each time. I met some really incredible, warm, friendly people who did nothing but make me feel welcome and happy in your country.

    I have plans to visit again some time next Autumn. If everything works out then I'll be spending some time in San Francisco, Nevada, Vegas and then staying a while up in Oregon.

    I'm actually a lot more interested in seeing the lesser known parts of America, the wilderness and the small towns and countryside. I'd love to visit Yellowstone. I'd love to see Seattle and some of the surrounding landscape. I'd love to take a roadtrip across the country, through the deserts and the mountains and all the impressive terrain that America offers. NYC and D.C. were the only cities I really had a huge desire to see, now I'm more interested in small town America. Just the regular country and regular people. Hopefully it's something that I'll get to do before I die. After seeing more of Europe it's very close to the top of my list.

    Just wanna see what all the fuss is about, really.

    I'm a lot more fussy about the base of a pizza than what's on top. That's what makes or breaks a good pie for me. I'd probably go with spicy chicken, green peppers, olives, onions, jalapenos, some nice cheese and plenty of grease.

    Quote Originally Posted by Bones View Post

    Never been to jail but I've come close a couple of times. Getting chased by the police used to be a hobby of mine. I always managed to evade them, though. Just stupid kid ****, really. If they really wanted to arrest me then they would have caught me.

    A cop totally wiped me out once. I was running and he pretty much clotheslined me, completely flooring me. I didn't even see him and before I knew it I had my face in the ground and his knee in my back with him telling me I was being arrested. Lucky break though; I was in a pretty big crowd and evidently someone behind me did something much worse than me because he got off me and went to grab someone else, completely ignoring me. I didn't really know what to do so I walked away kinda slow and confused but he didn't come after me. I wish I could find whatever guy distracted him and shake his hand.

    That's about it, really. I've never been in any real serious trouble with the law.

    ****...probably the toughest question so far. Pretty much any girl that Jessie posts a picture of. That dude has impeccable taste.

    Though, I obviously would have a hard time turning down any of these three:








    Just off the top of my head, really. I'm not exactly up to date on current famous women. I should work on that.

    go
    Punching a dragon in the balls to save a fair maiden. Then I'd punch her too. Just for making me jump through hoops and fight a mother****in' DRAGON. Then I'd probably sleep with her mum (who's probably way better in bed anyway, not to mention more ****ing grateful) and chew some bubblegum.

    I don't think I've eaten an oyster but I've eaten mussels and other ****ty seafood. I don't get it. People think it's disgusting to eat slugs and insects that live on land but just because it has some pretentious shell and lives under the sea it's fine all of a sudden?

    Not for me, thanks.

    I've eaten a booger when I was a kid. My own, of course. Pretty salty.

    No grasshoppers either. I don't have a problem with it but I don't think I could do it if it was still alive. That would freak me out.

    I'm flattered, man, and I really like you and stuff but I'm sorry, you're just not my type, dude.

    Well, as Redmist said in his Well, I'm really not sure how unique or culturally independant any of our traditional dishes really are. Our food tends to be just good, hardy meals consisting of standard vegetables and cooked meats like beef, pork and lamb. There aren't a whole lot of really adventurous uses of herbs and spices or anything like that, so it's really hard to pick a favourite meal, since I have more of a taste for Eastern or European flavours.

    I mean, we're known for potatoes, whiskey and famine. That says it all, right there.

    I guess potato bread is fairly unique to us, and it's delicious. It's one of the only culinary things I miss when I'm away from home.

    Irish stew is fairly popular here, especially in the winter, though it's not one of my favourites.

    I'm not sure exactly how Irish it is, but I've had seafood chowder in some coastal towns around Ireland and it hasn't been like anything I've had anywhere in the world, even in America, so I guess I'll include that.

    Apart from that, I'll include Guinness...since it's so thick it's pretty much a meal in a glass, anyway.



    Quote Originally Posted by Jeff_H View Post

    I'm really not that fussy about beer, I'll drink anything. I do generally prefer bottles to cans though. If I have a choice, I'll usually drink Guinness or Stella...though the Pilsner I had in Prague was definitely one of my favourites.

    Quote Originally Posted by Jeff_H View Post

    I like Jack Daniels and would drink it whenever I get a chance. I recently got a bottle of Gentleman Jack, which I really enjoyed too. Tastes pretty much like Jack but a lot smoother and easier to drink. Twas good stuff.

    I really like Rum and I'll drink pretty much any variety of it. Captain Morgans is my usual if I'm out and about in a rum kinda mood.

    While this isn't exactly a hard liquor, I just have to include it:



    Buckfast is a fortified, tonic wine which fuses 15% alcohol with more caffeine than Red Bull. It's ****ing rocket fuel. I really like the taste and the drunkenness is always the fun kind, not just the bleary-eyed tongue-tied drunk that makes you retarded.

    There's a lot of controversy around it, though. They've tried to ban it a couple of times, with a lot of pundits in the media blaming it for increased levels of violence in some area of Ireland and Scotland. It's brewed by monks in Devon in England, in a place called Buckfast Abbey (home of the Buckfast Bee, apparently) though it hasn't really taken off in England, just Ireland and Scotland. We're crazier than them, apparently.

    If you ever make it across to Ireland I'll buy you a bottle. Me and a couple fo friends have started to really perfect our Buckfast cocktails. Be scared, man. Be very scared...
