Guns and planes, yes! We would just have to hide the gun-part from Liesbeth.
By the way, photo#3 in the series looks like it's taken straight out of Reservoir Dogs.

That "woooooo WEEEooooooo" sound in the background of Bowie's "Heroes" is an ebow.


It's also featured very prominently on R.E.M.'s fantastic E-Bow The Letter (feat. Patti Smith!)

Re: Article by John in the Seattle Weekly Reverb Residency

You have to count on your fans to recognize when you appear too tired, when you appear skittish or frazzled, or when you're talking to A REALLY PRETTY GIRL RIGHT NOW AND CAN WE TALK ABOUT THIS THING IN JUST A SECOND? You are absolutely right, and many times it's obvious, but some other times, it's ...

Aside from the fact that JC has a very distinctive style and that the lighting in some photos just kills me, he seems to able to make ...

Re: Superfans: they love you, then it gets complicated

As a superfan I cannot help but respond to this week's column. My husband read it and said 'my god, he makes it sound like it's really terrible to have fans'. I have to admit when I first read the article my impression was that John must have had more negative experiences with "superfans"...

Wait. Vienna has Brno as sister city as well. Does that mean we are city cousins?....

We have many sisters, from many misters. I think that Sondre Lerche informed us that Bergen, Norway was our sister city as well. Looks like you and Chris are both correct: http://www.seattle.gov/oir/sistercities/cities.htm That's a very cool list. Wanna trade Reykjavik for Moscow? Pretty please?? O...

Re: Article by John in the Seattle Weekly

This might be a really stupid question, but I am not sure about the difference between "making fun of someone" as opposed to "talking shit about someone"; I thought " "I watched him eat a human baby once" or "He has all the charisma of a sack of candles" ...

Christians are funny (not)!

Well at least at first I thought this article was a joke, but apparently it isn't. In fact, there's nothing funny at all about the website where it came from. How much shit for brains do you need to have to spew diatribes like this ? But at least now I know what's been bothering me about John all th...
