    BS, Gorillaz or Blur? How did you come to be a Blur fan? What's your favorite Blur album, and why? Finally, what's your opinion on Graham's solo career?

    I wake up to some morning sex, and this is wake naturally, not from an alarm clock. Shave, shit, shower. Breakfast...

    perigourdine poached egg
    mushrooms, black truffle
    and
    liquid breakfast
    granola, strawberries, honey, banana and soy milk

    I then go bodyboarding on perfect waves for 2 to 3 hours in warm, Hawaiian waters.

    (And just to clarify this for people who are not familiar, this kind of bodyboarding...



    Not this...)



    Nachos and margaritas for lunch at some awesome beachside spot.

    After lunch, a relaxing afternoon with a full body massage.

    Dinner at XIV... customizable vegetarian tasting menu.

    Then, off to a Radiohead/Gorillaz co-headlining show with All Access passes.

    I have to make sure to leave the show on time because my band is opening up for LCD Soundsystem at a late night show. After blowing the crowd away with our set, James Murphy gets me to come on stage to play cowbell on one of their songs.

    Marissa Miller is in the crowd at the show and my wife ends up chatting with her a bit.

    The night ends in a threesome with Marissa Miller and my wife.

    I have not. I haven't gone in there since a couple days after Coachella. I am assuming one of the 8 unread messages is yours, and I apologize for my flakiness. I also apologize to anyone else who is reading this and has not received a response to a pm they have sent me recently. To put things in perspective, a good friend of mine who I grew up with called me two weeks ago... I just called him back yesterday. Everyone, I promise, it's not personal. It's not you, it's me.

    Sadly, I don't remember my first kiss. The first kiss I remember was on the street outside of my first girlfriend's (real girlfriend, not fake childish romance) house. I was in middle school at the time. It was awkward.

    Cool. Exactly how long have you been a vegetarian and do you plan on going vegan anytime soon? What are your arguments for being a vegetarian? Favorite vegan/vegetarian restaurant?
    You're an anthropology major, yes?

    I have been a vegetarian for almost 10 years. I will never go vegan... I think it is stupid.

    My reason for going vegetarian was mainly because I stopped liking the way meat tastes. I was working at a natural food store at the time, and it opened my eyes to all the good alternatives to eating meat.

    Beyond that, our current mode of producing enough meat for the people of the world is unsustainable. It is detrimental to the environment, and is an all-around horrible practice. Basically, everything here: http://www.goveg.com/environment.asp.

    I have more than one... Greens (SF), Millenium (SF), Vegetarian Paradise 2 (NYC)

    Why would going vegan be stupid? What attracted you to be an anthropology major and do you work in that field now?

    Because I love cheese... It might as well be a world wonder. I think anyone who puts such strict dietary restrictions on themselves is silly. Also, being vegan isn't natural. Even as a vegetarian, I still eat things made with meat stocks. Meat stock makes some things taste DELICIOUS.

    Quote Originally Posted by seandlr View Post

    My xenophilia. I spent a good deal of time in high school and the beginning of college studying, and idealizing other cultures and philosophies. Whether it was Mayans, Daoism, Rastafarians, etc... I always thought there was some greater answer to be found outside of my own culture. When I was young, I dreamed of exploring and discovering some untouched civilization. As I progressed through school, I learned a lot from these studies and ended up finding my answers, but they definitely weren't the answers I was expecting.

    I definitely use the kind of thinking processes that studying anthropology taught me, but I don't work as an anthropologist.

    An overwhelming portion of the IT/tech/engineering managers I've worked with were anthropology majors for undergrad. Not sure why that is. (Other than, we didn't want to do field work and also cared to make a lot more money).

    This question makes my head hurt. They are such different projects, and I don't know if I would accept a world without both of them. When it comes down to it, I would have to go with Gorillaz. There are certainly more good Blur songs than Gorillaz songs, but we get so many different sides of Damon with Gorillaz. I think the diversity and experimentation with Gorillaz keeps me guessing, and I like that. To be fair though, I could have just as easily chosen Blur. Even though I heard Blur way before Gorillaz, I ended up with more of an emotional attachment to Gorillaz, and that usually makes for a win with me. I am big on the whole "music marking a place and time" kind of thing. I wish Damon would tone down the guest spots sometimes and do more songs like "Last Living Souls", "O Green World", "Dirty Harry", "El Manana", "Rhinestone Eyes", "On Melancholy Hill", etc, but it's always interesting to see how utilizes guests, so I can't really complain.

    My first introduction to Blur was Parklife. I used to watch Much Music a lot as a kid and I remember really liking the singles. I distinctly remember the silly videos for "Girls and Boys" and "Parklife". The only two albums I ended up buying in the 90's were Parklife and Blur. After Blur came out, my tastes shifted a lot and I didn't rediscover them until just a couple of years ago. I'm glad I did, because I had missed a lot. I'm still not a huge fan of 13.

    My favorite Blur album has got to be Parklife. The prime reason would be it's the one Blur album in which I LOVE every single song. Modern Life, Great Escape, Blur, and Think Tank are all great, and have some of favorite Blur songs on them... "For Tomorrow", "Oily Water", "It Could Be You", "Universal", and "On Your Own"... "On Your Own" is in top 5 for sure. With that said, Parklife opened me up to Brit-pop, and in my opinion, is better than anything Oasis has done as well.

    I dig Graham's stuff when I am in the right mood. The pop of Happiness in Magazines and Love Travels at Illegal Speeds is great, and I gave last year's The Spinning Top quite a few spins. I would definitely see him if he ever came to the US... Too bad that will never happen.

    goddamn it, how did I miss BS doing GTK week?

    BS,
    You've just been elected Mayor of SF, what's the 1st thing you do?

    You are in charge of picking the top 3 names each day @ next year's Coachella (not taking into account silly things like if the damn thing will sell or how expensive said acts are) who do you pick?

    Out of all the places you've lived @, which did you like the best/least and if you could live anywhere else, where would it be (saying you'd stay in SF counts)?
