What's top of your Christmas wish list this year - excluding world peace?
I'm going into my daydream world... and I'm seeing an Evo 5 or Type R WRX. Let's face it, guys with 'character noses' need all the help they can get.
As a wee'un, what was the one present you always wanted but never got?
I always wanted a jig saw so I could build my parents a new mailbox. Every Christmas when I asked for a jig saw, I would get a jigsaw puzzle! Go figure?
Do you still want it?
Absolutely. The personalised mailbox industry won't know what to think when I get my hands on a jig saw... Placing orders now.
Defining moment of 2006, for you personally:
Turning 20 and actually being able to grow facial hair. Every year before that I would always get the bumfluff cough from my Nana at the Christmas table.
Most-overrated thing/person/topic of the year:
Emo clones - there are far too many out there to be classed as alternative. Come on guys, it's Christmas. Put away the black and wear something festive!
Album of the year:
Arctic Monkeys -
Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not
Movie/DVD of the year:
Out Of The Blue
Person of the year:
It's so nice of you to offer me that award ... Oh sorry, I misunderstood. Rove McManus.
The most important lesson you learned this year was...
A joint bank account isn't the end of the world. It's far worse.
New Year's resolution for 2007:
To rock harder and longer than Iggy Pop.
Your prediction for 2007's 'next big thing' ...
Jerry Seinfield's mullet, man bling, and dress shirts tucked into sneans. (Sneans = sneakers + jeans). Emos watch out!
