You're back again?
Yes I am.
There must be something new in your life then, because your name hasn't changed (like last time).
That's not a question, but it is true!
Well? What's new?
Quite a few things! For one, Twilite and I are now living in a real-life sized apartment, not a teeny-tiny studio. For another, we have a baby girl!
Yes, her name is Molly and she was born on the last day of August 2011. She's adorable and awesome and we love her very very much.
So what's it like being a mom, then?
It's pretty amazing. I have this tiny little human who completely relies on me for everything - food, warmth, care, entertainment...
And are you happy?
I am. Wonderfully, supremely happy.
It is not happy people who are thankful.

Right, think of questions...
Explain the name?
Well, I live in an old house called Magpie Farm, and I want to be a jeweller- they just seemed to go together.
So, what are you doing right now?
Currently writing this, but I'm in the last year of school doing art, english and history, as well as attempting to organise various other things.
Making LOTS of jewellery, occasionally glass painting, attempting and failing to sell said jewellery at craft fairs, reading, singing in lots of choirs, procrastinating, wishing for a soldering torch and bellringing. Yes, bellringing, and yes, I'm weird. It is actually quite fun, and I've managed to discover the secret society of bellringers, which is good.
Gaiman, Pratchett, and basically any decent fantasy. The longer the better,because I read fast.
What do you want in the future?
That soldering torch. Also the ability to be able to use a cigarette lighter easily, to light said torch. I'm not a failed pyromaniac really...
|half the man he used to be|
Oh god, was I supposed to do one of these?
only if you want to, no one is breathing down your neck
So why now?
it's friday and work is really slow
Ok, so get on with it already
i'm matt. i live in san diego california usa. i like loud live music, good beer, furry cats, staying up late, waking up early, ingesting lakes of coffee, and riding a bicycle everywhere
So you're a hippie?
i'm NOT a hippie, i am just me, an individual, just like everyone else
But you're pretty much all about music?
yes. i play in 3 bands currently, the living room at my house has no furniture and equipment everywhere, we throw shows about once a month in the living room, pretty much all my time and money goes to music, and if you're ever in san diego and you want to go to a show, hit me up and you will feel that west coast hospitality
So music is the only thing you like?
hardly. i inhale books of every genre, i lurk the internet in every kind of nerdy forum and site, i adore video games, i am often to be found at a museum, enjoying paintings and sculpture, or up a tree, or the side of a mountain, or sometimes sleeping
Sounds like you're pretty busy!
i have a fortune taped to my desk at work: "You are a bundle of energy, always on the go."
Whoa, you work? That's not very punk rock bro!
gotta pay the bills! rent won't pay itself...up the house punx!!
get a job! those 40s in your backpack are made by CORPORATIONS yo
Do you have anything more to add?
yes...this board is a grand place. tacos rule. visualize world peace
Take a shower!!

I just re-read my entry, posted in September, 2007. Nothing's really changed!
Minister of Kraftwerk in the Realm of U & P, Order of the Pineapple with frond for advancement in Nap studies.
The brain: not always amenable to logic. ~Hive
I prefer to live in a country that's small, and old, and where no one would ever have the NERVE to wear a cape in public, whether they could leap tall buildings in a single bound or not.
the parrot... ...gets tiresome.
the parrot... ...i ate him.
Oh dear. My one of these is terribly out of date--enough that I think I'll just write a new one. Maybe a kind mod will redirect my linky so it linkies here instead if I ask?
Your last FAQ said you were a clown. Still true?
Um ... kinda. I've never actually managed to bring my clowning supplies with me to Newfoundland, so though I would still do clowning on occasion if I could, the occasion hasn't come up in a while.
Yes. I've left the prairies for the least prairish place in Canada.
Hey, you live in Newfoundland now, how do you get a one-armed Newfie out of a tree?
Wave. And I find that joke deeply offensive.
Well actually, I don't but plenty of people around here do. "Newfie" is actually an offensive term here, especially when it's used by mainlanders.
I live in England. I'm not a mainlander.
If you're not from Newfoundland you're a mainlander.
Is it true that Newfoundland has its own time zone?
Yep. We're half an hour off of the rest of the world. All the tv shows start on the half-hour instead of on the hour.
And do they really talk funny there?
Deed they do b'y.
What are you at?
This is it.
What's after happening now?
Okay I think that's quite enough of that. Fun though. So what brought you to Newfoundland?
I moved my whole family so I could do a PhD here.
Yup. My wife Jayelle posts here once in a blue moon, and we have two daughters, G and M.
What's your PhD in?
English literature. Specifically, the changing representations of the sacred and the secular in 15th century literature and particularly in Sir Thomas Malory's Morte Darthur.
But wait. I thought you said before it was about Superman.
Okay one last question. How come you never post anything except ukulele videos?
I'm not sure. I read lots though, if that counts for anything.
Okay then. Long may your big jib draw.
G'wan my son.
Never stare into a car's headlights and freeze, because you'll either be run over or shot.
Do you still think it'll never get finished? Really?
And I never did get round to doing a FAQ. I guess it's because people never ask me questions so I wouldn't know where to start. Maybe I will one day. You never know.

Oh you should go for it! I think I did mine mostly with questions I frequently ask myself.
Anyway, why don't people ask you questions? And I swear I'm not trying to be clever by asking you a question just because you said no-one ever does. It's just that that's actually something I could've said myself, too. I seldom get asked anything, and I can't remember the last time anyone asked me anything personal. (There are lots of people I regularly interact with who don't even know where I come from, for instance, even though they must hear from the first word I utter that I'm not Dutch.) And I sometimes wonder about that...
Anyway, we used to have this really nice thread where people took turns asking each other all sorts of questions... I learned so much about the other boardies. Like their gangster names! What would be yours?
Sorry, but you are looking for something that isn't here.
Tis what a lovely reply that was. I can't believe I haven't seen it until now. Thank you x
PS What is your gangster name? :P
Those who believe in telekinetics, raise my hand.
So what is with your user name?
I play harp to my pet dragon.
Pet dragon! Are you nuts?
Yes, a little.
Why did you leave the board so long?
I got locked in the attack by a guerrilla bat. Nah not really, I have really obsessing over video games like Skyrim, Minecraft, Portal 2, Fallout 3 etc...Plus going to college as a non traditional student.
What are you studying?
I completed my AA in Science and communications. Now I am working on a masters in Computer Science.
Are you back then?
I pop in and out. I will be checking in while I am on med leave from school.
What are you doing today?
Cooking dinner for the two 18-year old boys and their guest. They are still sleeping at 4pm after having a Halo and Magic card game party with 4 other young adults who brought extra xbox's here. They had two TV's split into 3 players and were chasing each other around on Halo.
Lets hope I do not burn the rice while I am posting here.
