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?

This is a fun thread. I should participate more.
BS what is your favorite Prince song?
BS: Ideal lover's traits?
BS: I realize that there is probably a thread about this already but could you post a play list of some of your favorite songs (keep it down to 20). I am very curious to hear what you really like.
BS, you still haven't answered my first question.
Here's a new one anyway:
Describe your first kiss.

BlackSwan, some of your most whimsical inclinations?
Answer however it suits you to do so.
I think you've made this apparent, but I will ask just to be sure. You're a vegetarian right?
Are you a never-nude?
Here are some answers. I'm working on the other ones...
perigourdine poached egg
mushrooms, black truffle
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...
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.

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?
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.

Why would going vegan be stupid? What attracted you to be an anthropology major and do you work in that field now?
I definitely use the kind of thinking processes that studying anthropology taught me, but I don't work as an anthropologist.

Vegan and thin. %uck me running.
2 oz blended whiskey
Juice of 1/2 lemon

Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.
I have a BA in anthro, too. Favorite culture? Favorite cultural ritual?

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?
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)?
Favorite park in SF?
