1. What's your level of education?

High school.
I dropped out of university twice.
I'm at a music school and a music production school currently.

2. In an office environment, do you/would you/did you prefer open plan or partitioned off space?

Partitioned. I'm not a big fan of people usually. Especially if I need to focus.

3. What does the voicemail on your phone currently say?

"Yo. Speak"

4. What sound or smell evokes peace and relaxation for you?

Only smells, no sounds

Cooked beets
Camellia Sinensis plants
Springtime Warsaw smells in general

And probably a few more, but I can't remember right now


5. Headaches and mild pain in general: stick it out or pills immediately?

I rather wait.
Pills only when it's unbearable. Like when I had four teeth removed.

6a. (For Americans only) How close, if at all, did a protest or march come to where you live?

Racist.
Up until two months ago I was living right next to the ministry of education, ministry of foreign affairs, ministry of justice, the constitutional court, the prime minister's office, the Vatican embassy, the Ukrainian embassy and a monument to a nationalist politician from the 20s, so with all the **** that's been going on in Poland for the last 6 years I had demonstrations pretty much every week right beside my windows.

6b. What's the loudest sound in your home at night?

The guy who lives upstairs and likes to play techno at 3am.


1. Will there ever be a rainbow?

I suppose they do happen quite often, so yes.
Though I haven't seen one in a while.

2. Who's that girl running around with you?

Yeah, I think I'm in love actually. So...she's my love interest.

3. How many roads must a man walk down before you can call him a man?

None.
It's a nice poetic sentence, but in real life makes no sense.

It's like that old saying that a man becomes a man only after he had built a house, planted a tree and had a child.

Sounds nice, but it's nonsense.

4. Have you seen her?

Well, yes

5. What shall we do with the drunken sailor?

Get drunk with him and listen to some stories.



6. If a picture paints a thousand words why can't I paint you?

This is actually a pretty tough philosophical question that I don't feel can be covered here in a joking manner.

See ya next week!

More like "read ya"

Roasting smores.

Stick it out.

Apparently right down the street from my job, but I didn't see anything.

Everything? Lol, but probably the stairs.

If there is ever a pot of gold somewhere, a rainbow will be there.

2. Who's that girl running around with you?

Eve.

3. How many roads must a man walk down before you can call him a man?

A man only walks down lonely roads, permanently.

4. Have you seen her?

Oh I hear her voice as the cold wind blows.

Dunk the drunk.

6. If a picture paints a thousand words why can't I paint you?
You never learned how to paint.

1. What's your level of education?

In Ireland, we go Primary School (7 - 11 maybe) then Secondary (up to 18) and after that college. I never finished Secondary, left at 17 to go to work fulltime in an office, a job I held for almost 30 years.

2. In an office environment, do you/would you/did you prefer open plan or partitioned off space?

I appear to be one of the only ones who preferred the open-plan arrangement. I disliked being cut off from everyone else and the craic decreased exponentially. When you have to stand up and look over a partition to say "did you see the match last night" or whatever, you tend not to bother. Boo to partitions. What was it Obama, or someone, said? We need to be taking walls down, not building them? Not sure who it was, definitely not Trump.

3. What does the voicemail on your phone currently say?

I really can't recall. Something like my name and then "you know what to do". Must be something else though as someone who rang me complimented me on the humour of my message. Shrug.

4. What sound or smell evokes peace and relaxation for you?

Sound: falling rain, birdsong, church bells (those multiple ones like in Rome or in movies about Victorian London), the gentle screech of tyres as another robbed car streaks up the road.. wait, what?

Smells: Freshly baked bread, that winter smell of smoke and fire on the air, that smell after the rain

5. Headaches and mild pain in general: stick it out or pills immediately?

I almost never use tablets, so unless it's really bad I'll stick it out.

6a. (For Americans only) How close, if at all, did a protest or march come to where you live?

6b. What's the loudest sound in your home at night?

Hard to say, but if I had to choose it's probably the tread of the insane murderer coming up the stairs dragging that heavy double-headed axe...

And now, special FUN questions which make no sense!

1. Will there ever be a rainbow?


2. Who's that girl running around with you?

I think she wants to kill me...

3. How many roads must a man walk down before you can call him a man?

One, if he's a Protestant: the Falls Road.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Falls_Road,_Belfast
4. Have you seen her?

I really need to get my eyes checked...

5. What shall we do with the drunken sailor?

Keelhaul him and rob his booze.

6. If a picture paints a thousand words why can't I paint you?

Because I'm out of art supplies and it's Sunday; all the shops are shut.

See ya next week!

Nah, it was Kaczmarski



with a twist

He was lone, young and inspired
And their numbers couldn't be counted by anyone
With his song, he gave them strength
He sang that the dawn is near

A thousand candles burned in his name
Smoke was rising above their heads
He sang it's time the walls collapse
And they sang along with him

Rip the teeth out of the walls' mouth
Break the chains, shatter the whip
And the walls will fall, they'll fall, they'll fall
And they'll bury the world of the past
Rip the teeth out of the walls' mouth
Break the chains, shatter the whip
And the walls will fall, they'll fall, they'll fall
And they'll bury the world of the past

Soon, they all knew his song by heart
And the melody, without the words
Carried that old idea forth
Sent shivers through hearts and heads

And so they sang, and so they clapped
Like a discharge did their applause sound
And the chain seemed heavier and the dawn seemed to drag
And he stiil sang and played

Rip the teeth out of the walls' mouth
Break the chains, shatter the whip
And the walls will fall, they'll fall, they'll fall
And they'll bury the world of the past
(...)

They teared down monuments, they teared the pavements up
"This one's against us, and this one's with us"
"The lone one is our greatest enemy"

But the singer himself was alone
He watched as the masses walked
He stayed silent, listening to them march
And the walls grew, they grew, they grew
And the chain rocked by their feet

He watched as the masses walked
He stayed silent, listening to them march
And the walls grew, they grew, they grew
And the chain rocked by their feet

1. Where were you when JFK was shot?

2. What's your favourite tipple (drink)?

3. What's your eyesight like?

4. Generally, do you trust people or are you always looking to see what their angle is?

5. If you could go on a date with one celebrity who would it be?

6. If you could be in - and survive - one historical battle which one would it be?

And now, some nonsense questions again:

1. Why do birds suddenly appear every time you are near?

2. When will there be a harvest for the world?

3. Have you come here to play Jesus to the lepers in your head?

4. Why can't I get no Tang?

5. How can I protect you in this crazy world?

6. What do you want from me?
