- CKY: The 12 Days Of Christmas
I've become a member about two weeks ago before seeing this page ^^ hehe. But yeah.. ELLEUH! Hehe.

Stand-Up or Otherwise!
Until recently i didn't really care much for comedians, but having recently gone through a depression i have been searching for things to make me laugh and truly, laughter and comedy is life saving stuff!! Just like music or any other form of self expression! <3
Who are your faves? Comedians or comedic actors (:.
Since having left England to move to Holland when i was 11, i didn't grow up with the great English comedians and all i knew was Mr Bean and Monty Python, but i feel that a lot of the world's greatest comedians come from Britain (: (in my opinion most Dutch comedian's try too hard.. i guess they all do but it just doesn't feel as natural to me as it does with most British comedians (: i do like Guido Weijers). I still don't know a lot of comedians but i lovelovelove:
1) - Eddie Izzard (ultimate fave)
2) - Lee Evans (ultimate second)
And then really anyone in random order:
Billy Connolley, Bill Bailey, John Cleese, Robin Williams (Stand-Up, not film), Peter Kay, Sean Lock, Jim Jeffries, Rick Mayal & Ade Edmondson, Bill Hicks.. (:
Who do you recommend?
I have an obession with the freckled man with the pale blue eyes who could be my father.. lol. Anyone else here have the guilty pleasure? :p :D
I don't believe in idolizing people, as to me the whole idolization thing kinda feels like ranking someone higher than other people, and i believe everybody (yes, EVERYBODY!!) is as special, they just have to (have the advantages to) tap into their true self and powers, etc (:. I truly believe anyone can be a huge inspiration to anyone else, and Eddie Izzard just happens to be one of MY most inspirational people (: .
*plus the small side fact that he's mega sexy.. prrr... hehe.. oops shh!!*
WHO IS EDDIE IZZARD YOU SAY?
British Stand-Up Comedian * Award Winning Actor * (Action/Executive) Transvestite * Multi-Marathon Runner for Sport Relief (43 in 51 days!!! Watch Marathon Man and be blown away and MEGA inspired!!!) * Humanitarian * Political Animal * History Buff * Sexy Sexy Creature!!!!

So.. any other Izzardians about? Hehe! ^^
I agree with you (:.
She never claimed to be a punk anyway so whatever, lol.
I still hold the Distillers dear to my heart and they mean more to me than Spinerette probably ever will.. but i do love that she's doing her thing now in what suits her best at the moment, and i do love the music (:.

I'm new to searching for these bands. But i have scanned through some recently, and a couple that aren't listed that took my attention are:
- Spiral Rhythm:
Also, i don't know if this counts but i'm guessing every little helps :p. I'm a huge fan of Emilie Autumn. Her stuff varies from gothic to neo-classical metal to pagan and folk, to industrial and rave stuff, etc. Check her out, she's amazing! Here's one of the many brilliant sides of Emilie, i took this one cause it's one of her more pagan songs.
- Emilie Autumn:
Hope this helps!
