Things to Do While Waiting for Your Fibonacci Numbers to Come Around

Now Playing: Sidsel Endresen: 'Do Do Do'

Topic: LondonLifer

Stuart of Kitchentable was blogging about things to do before you die. Or become 40. Feh. Same diff.

So which ones are still on the list to get done afore I peg it?

Tick these off, they're done:
-go out of your way to befriend someone entirely new who isnt already in your friends circle
-quit one of your worst vices (cut drinking last autumn)
-have an orgy (come off it, who's gay and hasn't?)
(PS, if my mum reads this, I'm lying)
-naked photoshoot (got that one covered several times over already)
-fall in love (over-done that one)
-Buy a new leather jacket, put tweed patches on the elbows, and try and claim that you're "being gracefully punk rock."
-sponsor a child in the third world on a monthly direct debit so he or she can go to school
-Get a love-bite.
-Wait around after a gig to get an autograph.
-Hang out for an afternoon in a bus shelter with your mates, a bottle of cider and a ghetto-blaster.
-Whip your top off on a podium while mouthing all the words (it's been a while).
-Cover your bedroom wall with a collage of magazine photos.
-Write a love-letter on pink notepaper drenched in scent, with a "secret" acronym on the back of the envelope.

Nah, nah, nahhh, yew ain't done nonna these:
-a balloon trip
-pose naked for an art class
-write a novel
-see all seven wonders of the world (Mostly becuase I don't really know what they are)
-get a tattoo (Ewww, tats are ugleeee)
-learn to play an instrument from scratch (not the blue veined piccolo)
-Run with the bulls in Pamplona.
-Grow a moustache, and try and claim that you're "being ironic." (this one might be hard)
-Buy the Franz Ferdinand album, and claim - ah, it doesn't matter what you say, no one will believe you.
-Carve ____WOZ ERE on a tree-trunk.

Right, better get cracking on some of those. I'm not going to be 33 (the year of the sideways boobies) anymore in a few day's week's time, and the blog at least, is dying.
I've got me pen knife. Where's Pamplona?
Best Blo'te of the Day So Far: Van Mega
"One of the main ways listeners propelled artists was through the art of the mixtape. According to George, mixtapes were huge, and shared extensively (don't forget CD's and the internet was kinda rare and still quasi-cutting edge back then). George then argued that today?s music climate was now in a position to take on the same exciting diverse traits of the early 90's. He the presented a challenge to the viewer to not just get back into making mixtapes, but getting selfless about it. He challenged everyone watching to regularly make mixtapes and mix CD's, featuring the bands which they personally felt were vital and interesting, regardless of if they were obscure indie groups or glossy major label types. Most importantly, George challenged us to share and give away the mixtapes *to strangers*, as a way to spread the word. You know, just leave them lying around in a classroom or wherever, and see who picks them up, and see how they get passed on. Kinda like a pay it forward kinda thing, but the currency is sonic.

I challenge other bloggers to publish a mixtape. Do it up, you've got an audience, spread the word (or whatever). Get in touch with me and let me know when you step up and publish a mixtape. I'll cherish your mix and link your ass, like whoa."

Home Page: can cross off the seven wonders of the world as it shouldn't actually be on the list - it is only possible to visit one of them - the pyramids...the others: the collosus at rhodes; the hanging gardens of babylon; the statue of zeus; the lighthouse at alexandria; *brief pause while I turn to google*; the temple of artemis; the mausoleum at halicarnassus - these are all destroyed (and yep, I didn't know them all either)...unless, of course, the author meant wonders of the *modern* world - in which case, people are still arguing over those :^)...
...and I would have thought that the "running with bulls" idea was finally put on hold after billy crystal did it in city slickers which makes it a bit *wanky* in my mind :^)...there again, I'm over forty so I'm trying to take as many things as possible off the list so that I can say I've done them all :^)...

I'm 38 and don't have the time or money to do all that stuff (excluding what I have done). I might as well eat worms. :o(

I only learnt about Fibonacci numbers earlier this year, and I am fascinated! They are better than prime numbers and triangular numbers. @#%$!, excitement about numbers = too much time talking to Vic.

Oooh read the Da Vinci Code, then! Do you know about Phi? aka The Divine Propertion? I think I remember touching on it in my A level art history class - well, if it's the same thing as the Golden Section.

Glad you're still speaking to me after I flamed you on usenet.,....!

Oooh, do you sing the 'think I'll go and eat worms' song? ;o)

I've always always thought, even as a kid - which is plain weird - that my forties would be the absolute best years of my life. So I'm hoping that at the very least I'll be so enlightened I don't need to make lists of pre-40 dares.

@ 7 wonders - Doh! I can't believe I made that mistake. What a dolt.
I managed to wipe the entire experience of city slickers from my memory, fangyewvairmuch.
