Video of Travis - Live in Glasgow - "You didn't hear about the polar bear?"
Video of Travis - Live in Glasgow|
"Frozen you have chosen, the path you wish to go..."
*G* Enjoying this... the music's good, I finally get to see what Travis looks like, the bass player is a funny goof (reminds me of a goofy Phil Cunningham), Fran (the lead singer, right?) sounds like Billy about an half-octave lower, with a similar set of expressions and humor. Hell, he even looks a bit like Billy, with his oval-shaped face, light colored fuzzy beard, big eyes and expressive eyebrows - despite the fauxhawk that's dyed pink on top - *G*.
"If we turn, tu-u-urn, turnturnturn, we might learnnnnn... learn"
*!* The bass player gets to sing - nice...
"I want to siiiing, to sing my song... I want to live in a world where I belong..."
Little bits of video in between the songs, showing the guys in the hotel rooms, with their girlfriends/wives (darn! *G*)... and, yes, Fran on the toilet (GUYS!!! JEEZ!) with a hand covering the essentials (gotcha!). Silly bits with fans, silly bits without fans. Tour of the lovely SWAN hotel by the bassist (hmmmm... wonder if I should try staying there? *L*).
HC - do you have this? Would you like to borrow it after I've worn it out? *G* I'm only seeing it for the first time, so that will take a while. *smiles at the waving Scottish flags in the audience*
Oooooh I'd LOVE to borrow it when you're done! I've never seen them play live. Hee! :)
Great!!!! Give me a couple of weeks to see it again. *G*
OOH! I have that. God, I haven't watched it in the longest time. *loves them oh so much*
I loved them explaining the songs actually. Especially 'Turn'. ... and 'Flowers in the Window'. God, Franny, I love you.
The 'Do They Know It's Christmas' clip? Yeah, I kept spazzing out over Frannie. Just complete azefjah-ness. He's CUTE! And .. yeah. Very everything. And so sincerely Billyshly nice, you know? He actually reminds me of Moby sometimes, though. Then again, I've thought the same thing of Billy a couple of times. Maybe I'm just weird.
Andy introduced me to William Burroughs, which makes him cool. Well, you know, not personally, but his books. 'Queer', I think it was I read. Plus, you know, he's the one who said "It's about the basic human condition, wishing that you didn't give a fuck" which just adds extra cool points. I put that line in my 'Quotes' file, because I just liked it so much.
Dougie, ah, I've had a soft spot for Dougie for the longest time. Well, actually, if I have to be very honest, since the first time I saw that picture of Fran and him both wearing lipstick and Fran writing 'U16 Baby' on his chest. Fran/Dougie OTP!!! And yes, I know he's married. But DUDE!!! He's married to Diane! Kelly MacDonald! DIANE FROM TRAINSPOTTING! How fricking cool is that? VERRAH! DIAAAAAANE!!!! <3
The other OTP is Andy/Neil then, obviously. Kee! They pair themselves up. I love it.
I actually don't know that much about Neil... huh... well, I remember something about a shoe fetish.
They can just all be such utter dorks, too. I LOVE that. And they're utterly slashable, though I don't know if there's actually any slash out there. The cuddling and nuzzling and linked arms and writing on chests hands on stomachs and looking at lips. But you know, they're just such... NICE guys, you know? (even if Fran claims he's a right cunt.) I love Travis for the same reasons as I love the LotR boys, I suppose. I mean, there's Neil staying home from a tour with Oasis because his wife was expecting a baby, or them all just taking a huge long break when he had his pool accident. They're real friends and it shows through.
I'm just.. Yeah, I need to see this DVD now *puts it on*
Thank you for reminding me, Ros.
Wow, that was a bit long, wasn't it? Sorry, got carried away.
Ummmm, yeah, a little bit. *G*
You know what I think?
I think YOU should come over on the 11th, and you and me and Kam should hang in Glasgow and Edinburgh and THEN she can go with you to Belgium while I check out the coast and do the nature photography thing!
No can do. Got exams in ealy June. Sorry :(
Durn. Thought she was goign to visit you then, though!
Nah, she's going to come over when I've finished.
Okay, now, back up a few feet... which one's Andy? And Neil? And Dougie? And who's married to who? And I thought Fran was gay, but he was with a girl. A tour with Oasis? I've heard them sing "and what's a wonderwall anyway?".
Remember - all I know is I've heard a couple of their CD's!
And they say something about William Burroughs? On the DVD?
Okay, now, back up a few feet... which one's Andy? And Neil? And Dougie?
Frannie - vocals
Andy - guitar/vocals
Neil - drums/vocals
Dougie - bass/vocals (the goofy one ;))
And who's married to who?
Dougie to Fran and Neil to Andy... in my slasherific mind. Heh, no, Dougie married the girl who played Diane in 'Trainspotting'. <3 I actually don't know any more.
And I thought Fran was gay, but he was with a girl.
Frannie's gay? *blinks* Why was I uninformed. I thought he had a girlfriend. Or a wife. Whichever.
*beats the bunnies with a STICK*
A tour with Oasis?
They made the first part of Oasis when they went on their America tour, erk, when was it? La, a couple of years ago. Can't be arsed to look it up.
I've heard them sing "and what's a wonderwall anyway?".
They're Oasis fans. *L* And Noel Gallagher has said that he's a Travis fan *ggl* Give and take?
I LOVED that line 'and what's a wonderwall anyway'.
*hums 'Writing to Reach You'*
And they say something about William Burroughs? On the DVD?
On the official site, actually. Andy'd recc'd him on there, and I just happened to pass by the library that day, found him and read him. *g* Easy as that.
*G* *bows* Thank you, all-knowing one! *G* Do you know Travis was actually doing a tour in Great Britain when I was there! *shakes fist at fate* But, of course, no tix. *sigh* They were even in... *sobs*... GLASGOW!!!
Maybe I just heard about a bunch of Fran/Billy slash stories and thought Fran was gay... but, yes, I did think he was. Must be wrong - *G*.
Do you know Travis was actually doing a tour in Great Britain when I was there! *shakes fist at fate*
AUGH! :( 'm sorry, auntie.
I remember the Fran/Billy!! Well, actually I just remember one. ^_^ Demelza's. God, I fell in love with that fic before I even knew who Fran Healey WAS. And then I found out, and forgot about the fic. And then found it again, and there was squee. Lots of it.
Hmmmm... still remember where it is? *G*
Yeah, the site was called www.liebesdachs.com, but it doesn't look like it exists anymore :( maybe in an archive somewhere? I forgot the name of the fic.
