Man you scream ******* hipster. [lol]

 

the weird thing is, I'm not.

 

These were the most comfortable glasses I found, I suck at growing facial hair (although its nicer now) and my ears get cold for whatever reason, so once it hits october, I'm usually always wearing a beanie because ever since I was a little kid, my ears have always been very sensitive to temperature.

 

but it makes people feel better if i tell them im a hipster, so who cares?

I've also gotten "weird old sailor who lives in an opium den" as well as most recently "it looks like god's pubes"

 

You kind of look like an old member who used to post here, I think his name was Fred61.

Interesting list Farnsbarns.......( I forgot to mention some of the original Cars, and the J.Geils )....In the work you do, it's a rather regular thing....

 

I imagine for many in certain fields it's a normal thing......IMHO, its easy to 'forget' that people are people, and want to be met as such, without the

 

perverbial " OH MY G*D !!!! IT'S YOU !!!!!! " stuff......I imagine E.C. is a very down to earth guy.....Pete Townsend, eccentric, etc etc.................

more added. I am sure there are more but I can't think at the mo. Oh, The Eurythmics...

 

Breaking news. Dizzy Rascal assisted me and my missus in the theft of a portion of noodles from the guest area at V festival.

 

I met about half of them through the wife at after parties and in guest areas rather than through my work. Julian Barret was looking in the window of a travel shop I used to work in so I went and introduced my self. I was 4 when I met Pollo Barnes but I stayed with him for a week so I properly met him. I trod on Robert Plants foot at an after party at a Goldfrapp concert. When I was a kid my best mates mum was Richard Stilgoe's PA, I met Peter Skellen through them too. Geoffrey Howe visited my school when I was a kid, so did Chris Accabussi. I met Faye from Steps before she was famous.

Oops, Double post, faulty mouse, always clicks twice, must order a new one.

 

Better use of this double post. UK members may have read in the papers a few months ago about a girl called Alison Cox who tried to poison the owner of Anne Summers with screen wash while acting as her nanny. I am close to being related. I went to school with her and then years later I met her mothers boy friend's niece (that's my wife)! I was amazed when I heard what she had done. I think she's still in prison. Haven't actually seen her since school.
