"Getting to know Sean"  January 2004

These questions were gathered from Sean's Message Board in the "Questions for Sean" Conference.

1. Guido D, Neverneverland 
    Q.  If you could leave a time capsule the size of a microwave oven to be found centuries from now, what would you put inside it?
A.   I was going to say "a microwave" but that would be too crap even for me.  I would put in all of my Man records so that the people who opened it would think that everyone was into them. 
2 Tampa, FL, USA 
   Q.  Have you ever eaten alligator? If not, what is the weirdest food you have ever eaten?
A.  I have eaten alligator and Matthew Lewis can verify this 'cause he tried some.  It was in and American style diner on the A41 just outside Watford about 2 years ago.
3.  Jenn F., Massachusetts, USA
   Q.  Hey there Sean, ever thought about trying to play a keytar (you know those keyboards that are made to look like guitars, think 1980's)?
A. No, but someone had one at the pub tonight.  First time I have seen one in years.  Weird.
4. Katie S.  NJ, USA 
    Q.   Sean. Help me think of a good excuse to give to my Math professor so that I don't have to take my Math exam. I don't think "The dog ate my review sheet so I cried about it" is going to cut it.  And while we're on the topic of school, what was your least favorite subject?
A.  I usually told my maths teacher that I'd miss the exam 'cause I was doing a play or something, but that was usually true so I don't know how well it'd work for you.  

Drama.

5. Penny S. Canada 
   Q.  
I want Scottish citizenship, will you marry me?
A.  That won't work.  I'd only marry you in Canada so I could get Canadian Citizenship.  Anyway you can't get Scottish Citizenship.  Only British, which is not so cool.  
6. Brittany V,  Illinois, USA
   Q.  What's Paul Kelly's home phone number?
A. You've no idea how tempted I am.
7. Lindsay S New Jersey, USA 
    Q. If you could have prevented one song from ever being created, what song would that be?
A.  There are so many!  Possibly "You Love Us" by the Manic Street Preachers.  
8. Amber L Clintonville, WI, USA
   Q.  So your a Beatles fan. But, have you seen the infamous Beatles movies? If yes, what is your favorite one? I always liked Help!.
A.  I love the Beatles movies. Hard days night is probably my favourite. It's amazing to think that Yellow Submarine came before Terry Gilliam's work on Python.
9. Hannah A, Sweden 
  Q. Hello Sean! If you were invisible for an hour, where would you go and what would you do? 
 A.  Come on, we'd all like to deny it bit if I'm honest I'd go to a Girls changing room like every other guy.  
10. ELISA W.  Rotterdam, Netherlands 
    Q. How do you make sure you don't forget your lines in a film?
A.  Do another take.
11. Kristin H Orange County,California 
    Q. So what is the worst prank you ever pulled on a friend? Did they get pissed off at you?
A.  I once nearly broke a friends neck with a maths textbook.  That doesn't really qualify as a prank but he sure got pissed.  
12.  Penny S, Canada  
     Q.  Sean, who do you like more, Diane or Gary?
A.  I don't like either of them.  They are both deeply disturbed, evil people bent of world domination.  
13. Rebecca B. Orlando, Florida
    Q.  Hey Sean, I was just wondering if you've ever played a Taylor guitar before. If you have played one, what did you think about it? They're great guitars...I know it doesn't seem
like you play acoustic much, but they have a new electronics system that's amazing.
A.  Yeah, the shops here are full of them. The new expression system is excellent
for plugging in purposes, but I still prefer Martins on the whole.
14. Hannah F. Ottawa, Canada
     Q.  Sean, as a musician, you must have some opinion on all these teen actresses getting record contracts because they are already famous and all... like Hilary Duff and Lindsey Lohan. Any thoughts on the matter?
A.  People get record contracts based on whether or not they'll sell records. If they don't manage it, they soon don't have record contracts. The public only have themselves to blame for being sufficiently gullible and tasteless to buy all the Pop Idol crap.
15. Kaleigh R, Canada
    Q.  Sean, I refuse to give up! What's the difference between a duck?
A.  I know this one! Both legs are shorter than the other.
16. Samantha
    Q.  Having a marvelous experience in the movies of Harry Potter, what was your favorite time of those magical days?
A.  It's hard to choose from two years of good memories but I don't think I've ever laughed as much as when James, Oliver and Martine Phelps and I ran away from from fans in Liverpool.  We were in tears for about half and hour.   
17. Jenn F. Massachusetts, USA
    Q.  Hey Sean, I was wondering what holiday you think is absolutely pointless and should be eradicated all together?
A. I can't think of how to answer this without being incredibly offensive to one religion of another.  No that that wouldn't amuse me greatly but I don't really think it's wise.  
18. Ann B. Idaho, USA 
    ::shakes Sean senseless:: Will one of my questions ever be answered? ::flips Sean over and waits for an answer::
A.  HA HA HA! That tickles!
19. *>bubba<* Ireland 
    Q.  Right Seanus, I need you to settle a debate I'm having with my friend!! *glares at friend*  who is better tigger or piglet?
A.  Toughy. The're both pretty clueless.  Tigger is funnier so I'll go with him.  I'm more of an Eeyore fan. 
20. Annie W. Lake Mary, Fl, USA
    Q. Sean, have you ever gone through a really creepy phase that you now regret? Maybe you wore parachute pants back in the 80s... Tried to get a mullet... Dressed like the lead singer of Twisted Sister for a while?
A.  I once listened to a Manic Street Preachers album.
21. Kathleen Qc, Canada 
    Q.  Sean, we mostly all know that you're favorite Red Hot Chili Peppers song changes all the time but what is your favorite album, if you have one?
A. Californication.  Love it.
22. Kayleigh, Cornwall , England   
    Q.  I am going to be a main character in a play in January. Have you got any good acting tips and for learning lines?
A.  Iím very lucky in this respect. They tend to stick in my head quite regularly. I think itís an individual thing. Just figure out what works for you.
23. M. J. Dublin, Ireland
    1. How do you get to the SECC without ending up on the damn freeway??? Last time I got lost to the north of Kelvingrove Park, this time it was to the south. I suck.


 I DON'T DRIVE SO MY ONLY SUGGESTION WOULD BE TO WALK OVER THE BRIDGE.

   2. Have you ever had a bird try to land on your head while walking down Sauchiehall Street? It hurts.


BY "BIRD" I'M ASSUMING YOU MEAN ONE OF THOSE THINGS WITH WINGS, IN WHICH CASE, NO.  NO I HAVEN'T.

   3. What are your feelings on the following bars/clubs: Metropolitan in Merchant City (too posh for my taste), The Edge (went to 21st bday party there), and Bamboo?

I'VE NEVER BEEN TO METROPOLITAN OR THE EDGE. I WAS IN BAMBOO A COUPLE OF TIMES (ONCE WITH DIANE ACTUALLY) AND IT WAS HORRIBLE

  4. Saturday night while walking up Sauchiehall Street I saw two girls pull up a young lads kilt. Has anyone ever done this to you?

YES. I MADE THE MISTAKE OF GOING CLUBBING IN A KILT ONCE.....

  5. I spent about ‚ā¨25 credit on my mobile in two days ringing/texting mobiles in Glasgow. This did not deter me. May I have your mobile number?


YES.
