You have great taste in comedians, my friend ;D All of them are epic, especially Russell (Well, that's just my opinion :L), and I can't help but look at Jon Richardson without going "AWWWWW!!" :3 Am I to say that you've read Danny Wallace's books? I've read them all apart from "Yes Man". Decided to watch the film instead xD
Haha cheers :D
Russell’s cool, he was a really nice guy too when I met him a while ago! I think that’s part of the appeal of Jon Richardson isn’t it? I’m off to see him tomorrow actually!
Have you listened to their old podcasts/radio shows, if not you should give them a listen I’m sure you’d enjoy them…
Yeah I have indeed read all of Danny Wallace’s books, you should check Yes Man out, it’s different in quite a lot of ways to the film :)
“Music is just, it’s the base code, it’s everything, its the background. I’m always humming something. And the thing I look out for in music is honesty, that moment when you feel like somebody pushed themselves past this kind of barrier of keeping your guard up, you know? And you suddenly, you break through, and you feel you got this moment, this perfect moment where you break through and you see something real, something underneath, you see the bone through the flesh, you feel a glimpse of the soul. When the voice cracks, when the guitar feeds back a little bit and you just feel like you heard something true and something that is undeniable, something that can’t be taken back. That’s the moment that I love in music, that’s what I try to do with the music that I make and that’s what I want to listen to.”—Frank Turner (via musicitsmysubstituteforlove)
“I’ll tell you what, I’ve never particularly liked the word “fans”. To me it implies almost like a class division between people who makes music and people who listen to it. When I’m not on tour, which isn’t all that often these days, but when I’m not on tour I buy records or go to shows and hang out, same as everybody else. I used to write zines and I used to put on shows. See what I mean? The word “fan” is just a bit kind of like, “You’re over there and we’re over here”. I don’t trash hotel rooms and have you guys pay for my fuckin’ idiotic, adolescent self-indulgence, and then you go home and don’t talk to me or the band after the show. So basically I’d just like to say, “Hi, come hang out”. Last night I was in Chicago, I went and found an Italian restaurant, I love Italian food. I had a great meal, finished up some work that needed doing, then I was like, “What am I going do?”. I just put a thing out on Twitter and ended up at a whiskey bar with a bunch of kids who are coming to the show tonight. We were just drinking whiskey and hanging out and I had the fuckin’ best time. They were really nice people. We drank some cool whiskey and they told me a bunch of shit I didn’t know about Chicago. It was called the Duke of Perth and it’s pretty near here I think. I would much rather do that with my day off than sit in my fuckin’ hotel room being a tortured artist.”—Frank Turner (via susanananananaa)
