    - Absolutely 'Sparkle and Fade'.

    What is your favourite lyric that 5 has sung?Sitting on my couch like a leper, interrogated sociopath,
    One hand is resting onto their holster, the other their staff,
    In my life I've been trained to respect them, bred only to protect and to serve,
    Now I know they're paid by the wealthy, the need won't be heard.

    How many times have you seen 4 live?
    - Not once.

    - That would be the b-side 'Thing About You'.

    What is your favourite lyric that 2 has sung?

    I think I lost my smile,
    I think you lost yours too,
    We have lost the power

    Let's just leave this place
    and go to summerland,
    It's just a name on the map,
    sounds like heaven to me

    - From 'Summerland'.

    What is your favourite song by 9?
    - Haha, that'll have to be the early demo version of 'Klaymen Theme'.

    - Tough one, think I'll have to go with 'Hung Ups'.

    What is your favourite lyric that 3 has sung?

    Your beauty took my breath away,
    in awe all day,
    your company was so relaxing,
    easy going ways,
    we saw the first signs of summer and springtime change,
    walking barefoot along the sand,
    i hadn't planned to stay

    - From 'Walking Barefoot'.

    What is a great memory you have considering 9?
    - When me and my brother beat the game 'The Neverhood' and Terry's last song 'Neverhood Theme' came bursting out of the speakers. I laughed my eyes humid.

    What is your favorite song by 10?
    - I love every song with Longview, but I think 'Further' is my favorite.

  • And, yes, as a matter affect I DO, recommend my own forum posts.

    5 fév. 2006, 9h16m

    I just got a recommendation to go read a post in the Feeder group forum, where I am a member. Just one little problem...

    I posted the message myself! I know that I write very good and thoughtful posts, but hey...
    What's the use to recommend me to go read my own posts?

    I take the opportunity to do a recommendation myself; anyone out there who likes bands such as Zebrahead, Antifreeze or Ash should try out I Hate Kate, a pretty new group with the former Zebrahead lead singer Justin in the front. They actually sound pretty much like Zebrahead, apart from the rapping-stuff.
  • Transatlanticism.

    4 fév. 2006, 8h45m

    I have listned to Death Cab for Cutie for quite some time now, but until last week I did not have Transatlanticismin my collection. Don't know why, really.
    One of my best purchases in history, goddammit. A totally complete record.

    I recommend you to go buy this right away.
