WIN! edit, I should get a kilt. But I don't think we'll be back to that place in Queens. Seems more Jazz/Latin-ish oriented.

Wait, she was just reading?  I had the impression she was reading aloud (like, doing a reading) while you guys played...

Yeah... I can't describe how awkward it is to have somebody just butt in like that, but we didn't really give a shit (as you can see by the fact we didn't even pay attention). And she was gone in a matter of seconds, maybe a minute max. What a fuckin weirdo hahah

That just reminded me of a cool story. A friend of mine was pretty bummed out last year - he had a marathon scheduled on the same day as a Frank Turner concert that he'd bought tickets to. He'd been training for the marathon for ages, and because of geography, couldn't do both. So he gave his sister his tickets, in she went in his stead. Anyway, that night his phone starts ringing. Unknown number. He answers the phone, and on the other end of the line is a voice belonging to Frank Turner, who says that he just rang up to congratulate him for finishing the marathon. Turns out, his sister had bumped into Frank after the show, and explained how bummed her brother was about not being able to go.

Also, The Ballad of Me and My Friends, fuckers.

All of these awesome stories about FT are half of why I want to go on tour and become similarly semi-famous. Because you have the power to make people's days SUPER RAD just by being a nice guy.

I don't want to pour cold water on this discussion because I listened to some of his music and he does seem quite good, but I wouldn't call him an English folk singer. Dude does not sing English folk music.

Actually, his self title is "skinny, half-arsed English country singer".

But he gets looped into folk punk, I suppose.

Dude can be from England and not be singing english folk music! I've never heard of folk punk either. Remember that what America calls folk music is more like what England calls country music - english folk is a totally different tradition.

...yyeeeeeaaaaaahhh, folk music's a different ball o' wax entirely.  Too many people label siger-songwriters as folk musicians.  They are not  the same, although there's overlap, as with all genres.  Woody Guthrie springs to mind - everything he wrote souded like it had been around forever. 

English folk makes me think of Child ballads.  And my entry into them, through Steeleye Span. 


Now, where did I put all those old records?

Back in highschool I used to do archery (there is no proper verb form). I was really into it for a few years and my dad got all excited that his bookish, unmanly son was interested in a sport and he bought me a really nice bow and a bunch of gear. Last few weeks I've been getting back into it and the other day I managed to drive down to the Olympic Park and practise with the new gear I'd bought.



Not bad for the first proper session in about seven years.

Nice. (Shame about that one in the black.) I'd wish my dad bought archery gear for me, but I'm more glad he doesn't advocate the stereotypical view of manliness, on account of being a massive nerd - just like me. I did an introduction course to archery once as well, but after the initial lessons were over, the archery club did require you to buy your own bow, which we couldn't afford at that time. Still, I walked away with some good lessons, and it was pretty fun.

We had some bows as kids, my two brothers and I. I thought they were the coolest things.

But I was and probably am still so weak that I couldn't pull the strings of the bows and instead of helping me my dad just did that "well hahahahahaha you suck because you're a girl" thing. so.

I got back at him by being the awesome kid.

(Ps. Archery is badass. So, Jimmy The Squid, you are officially badass in my mind, no matter what. Forevvvvvvver.)

I took an archery class my first semester in college, and found I was a lefty.  Bought a left handed 45 lb recurve - it's in the garage.  The arrows are in the attic.  haven't shot it since my SCA days, and the arrow rest broke off. 

I'll have to dig it out this summer... don't know where I'll fire it, though.

You know what I had in HS PE? Running. We ran. Everyday. Into eternity. Which is probably why they didn't bother making you go passed the 10th grade. Then we just had like higher level pe that was optional and was still just running.

Man, you people are so much cooler than me.

For PE in my school I just had irrational fits of rage and sulked behind the bleachers a lot.

I was can be a moody person sometimes.

My teacher would try to make me and my friends do stuff. He'd look at the three of us, tell us to stretch and start running. We'd look back, say no, and that was that. Still got an A. I think the pure boldness made him not hate us?

I was also moody. Still am. Unfortunately, my friends would have looked behind the bleachers. Misery loves company.

I never got why my high school PE teachers were always so emotionally invested in making people who didn't want to play sports, play sports. It's not like they were ever actually teaching us anything. They just picked a sport, and we had to play it for a while or else. Why, Mr. [NAME OMITTED], is it so important for you that I play football? WHY?

There was one kid that was a little bitch in my PE class in 9th grade. During the hot months (in Arizona, no less) on Fridays we would all have to do a mile on the track then we got to go chill in the pool for the rest of class. No hard exercise, just playing in a pool. This one fucker would take like 18-20 minutes to walk the mile, even when more than half the class (everyone had already finished) went back and urged him to jog the last 100 feet or so to at least try and improve his time and get us into the goddamn pool faster. He just said no in this super snappy tone and so we all stopped liking him at all after he did it 2-3 weeks in a row.

Like, even the dude who was crazy overweight and was taking the class because you have to would jog in the last bit.

One of my middle school gym teachers assumed that everyone knew how football worked, and just rattled off some stuff about what counted as a down. He was incorrect, so in addition to not being too good at throwing or catching, I had no idea what the rules or objectives were. Fun times.

After going through this thread I have reached the conclusion that I must have the most uninteresting life ever. Band singers, choral festivals, Halloween madness, models, the whole gamut of lifestyles. You people are crazy! And I mean that in the exciting, 'I want to move to where you are' kinda way. (Also, this small cross-section seems to suggest that the QC readership is mostly comprised of white late-twenties). Anyone not from the US here? I wonder what the results of a poll would reveal about the demographics of QC readers.
 
Me looking stoned without being stoned. Actual camwhoring here, but it's one of the only pictures I have of myself so not sure if that really counts. (I hate photos cos I'm horribly unphotogenic in most circumstances)

Will check out this Frank Turner dude. In turn I recommend Amanda Palmer and The Dresden Dolls (her band but she's also a solo artist). Incredible stuff.

PS: If someone can tell me how to shrink photos I will give them a free hug. =)

demographics of QC readers.

I guess that this forum has a majority of people in their 20s from the US; but there are a lot from Britain as well, and from Canada, Australia, New Zealand, France, Germany, The Netherlands, Scandinavia, and elsewhere.  Also people of all ages: there are active contributors who are teens and a couple in their 70s.  This all reflects reasonably well the readership of the comic as Jeph has remarked on it in the past.

Well it's good to know we're such a diverse bunch, even if it is largely limited to the western sphere (which is to be expected, given that this is an English-language comic). I was just surprised that there weren't more from Asia, Africa and such, considering that QC is likely the largest/most popular/famous webcomic currently running (I realise that this may be wrong, but if so, what IS the most popular webcomic out there?).

How about a photo of you doing something you enjoy? I'm sure you're plenty interesting. Nobody so curious can really be all that dull!

It's serious business throwback time. This is me at the age of 16 on Skye in Scotland.



For comparison, because I really have not changed in appearance much (I am now 23!), and yet I certainly have. From a few weeks ago while visiting friends in Berkeley. The young lady is a friend's little sister. We bear an uncanny resemblance to each other!

A Viking shield I'm making.  The background was later painted in a cadmium red, but under certain light it looks almost orange, so I might repaint it in a darker red.  The only thing keeping me from doing that is that it took almost an hour to edge the jörmungandr before taking a larger brush to the shield.
