The Send and the Shred (Long form writing/music review/psychedelic experience reporting)

2020.04.19 17:50 4burner The Send and the Shred (Long form writing/music review/psychedelic experience reporting)

So I don't quite know where else to post this, and if it isn't appropriate feel free to delete it and point me elsewhere. The TL;DR of all below is that after a fantastic trip set to a fantastic playlist on Friday night, I'm feeling compelled to flex my creative muscles, share some good vibes and lessons, and spread the word about some great tunes. As the title says, it's long form - only venture below if you want to read a good 3000 words or so. If you want to skip the introduction, and see what I wrote about what song this week, hit ctrl+F and search for VOLTO!. It'll be the next entry after that one.
The Send and the Shred
As far as dates go, the 18th of April is fairly unassuming. There’s no interesting mathematical patterns to make it stand out, nothing notable happened in regards to current events (outside of the average of these entirely too interesting times, anyway), and the most widely celebrated holiday across the nations I could find is that of Zimbabwean Independence, which I suppose is probably a big deal in Zimbabwe, however significantly less so in my home country of Australia. The grand expanse of history of course provides some Wikipedia-worthy births and deaths, but then, so does any day you care to name – there’s a lot of history contained within the entirety of recorded history, after all. If it weren’t for my wondrous psychedelic journey that early morning, I would say the highlights of the day would have been Divock Origi’s birthday (Liverpool FC striker and scorer of some of the most important goals of the club’s recent history), or the daily visitation from the pair of magpies that have conned me into providing them with parcels of mince at my back door every afternoon.
However, I of course did undertake a psychedelic journey on that fateful 18th, and, like all good voyages to the far-flung wild and unexplored territories of wherever, I came back with a better and broader sense of not only the world at large, but my path and place through and in it. The date, whilst likely remaining fairly low-key for the majority of Non-Zimbabweans, will forever be a significant one now for me personally.
At the stroke of midnight, I placed 3 LSD tabs under my tongue, re-arranged the living room furniture into trip configuration, and settled in to wait for take-off; not for the first time, and not for the last. Like all trips, getting the vessel into flight-ready mode takes time. All there is to do is wait and cast your gaze forward, giving self-assurances that this has all happened before, thousands and undoubtedly millions of times before, and the chance of something going wrong is quite small provided all the checklists are checked off. Still, nerves are common, even with experienced flyers, and my chosen travel-calm balm is distraction – this particular evening in the form of Book 8 of the Wheel of Time series, The Path of Daggers. That’s not a relevant detail, just a plug for what I consider the greatest fantasy series I’ve ever read. I get through a chapter and a bit before the captain announces we’re ready to launch ourselves across the night sky.
And launch we do. The itinerary for this little jaunt away from the day-to-day is a cruise through THIS purpose-built playlist, at the end of which I will land ready to watch the debut of a toudocu-movie titled Chunky Shrapnel, by Psych-Rock (and many genre’s beside) titans King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard. The tune list was painstakingly constructed over a week of frenzied adding and culling and reviewing tracks, checking vibe transitions from song to song - it started life as a simple collection of 20-odd tunes that I considered the “Best Of” my favourite artists, but quickly became much more. The snowflake that sent the avalanche careening downhill was the simple addition of the song Lonely Steel Sheet Flyer, breaking the unwritten-but-definitely-previously-heeded rule of including only one track per artist. And like all avalanches, once started, all you can do is let it happen, and hope the toll isn’t too great when the dust settles. In the end, all this cost me was a week’s worth of ‘productivity’, however given the current quarantine and its effect on my day job situation, this particular toll equated to a net-negative, and I therefore gained rather than lost. The avalanche somehow built a few log cabins as it tumbled down the mountain, to further stretch a strained metaphor.
The end reward was a playlist that I’m immensely fond of, whether viewed through a psychedelic lens or not, and a certain sense of pride in that it took a chunk of work, and that work paid dividends. I didn’t produce any of the tracks myself, but the journey that the sum of these parts created was and is incredibly conducive to a positive and rewarding and insightful trip – a journey that was the direct result of the work put in. And of course, it’s just full of Top Tier Tunes, never a bad thing at all.
So when the trip was ended, and after I had given my brain the sweet release of a 2 or 3 hour nap, I was reviewing the night’s travels with my partner, and scrolling through the playlist as I did so - spouting off certain thoughts I’d had, vibes I’d received, lessons or connections I’d come to recognize etc. Now, at the best of times, my memory is …sub-par, to say the least, courtesy of a good two decades’ worth of smoking as much weed as I could possibly inhale (A habit I’m happy to report has been thoroughly exorcised). Couple this with LSD’s somewhat intangible nature when it comes to recalling the specific nuance and spectacle experienced, and usually my trip recountings lack for clarity outside of a few well defined and shiny moments or revelations. I was kind of shocked to realise that as I was scrolling through the tracks, I could remember in great detail what was happening in my head at the time of listening – I had, and still have, clear memories tied to just about every song in that 80-deep list.
So, what a gift! But what to do with it? Like many, I’m sure, I’m a frustrated hobbyist novelist-in-intent if not in actuality, and with so much free time on my hands thanks to the current apocalypse I’ve been feeling the creative muscles twitch. I also feel that writing trip reports, codifying the experiences, helps us digest and retain the lessons and any positive changes that might come about, and furthermore sharing these reports might end up being beneficial to others who may come across them – I know I’ve spent plenty of time on Erowid, for instance, reading the stories of those who came before, digesting what I needed, and so contributing what I can to that communal database of experience seems the least I can do. Finally, I just love music – talking about it, writing about, reading about it, sharing it – even sometimes, gasp, listening to it - so throw all these three factors together, and I had a plan.
This essay is the first result of said plan. The Send and the Shred Music Review Series came to me as I was laying in bed the night after, contemplating, well, everything really, but more specifically how to share the good music (and good vibes and messages) I came across in a way that’s informative, maybe helpful to those who may need it, but above all entertaining – a music review column based mostly on my experiences with said music whilst floating somewhere beyond Saturn. The name comes from the realisation I had when constructing the playlist, and trying to figure out why some songs were appropriate and others simply were not: For me, there are only two measures to consider in regards to a song's trip-worthiness, and if you’ve read this far I can only hope you’ve guessed those measurements by now.
The Send factor is what I’d define as the inherent ability of a song to pull you out of your head and put you somewhere else – it’s literally sending your thoughts, your self, somewhere, even if that somewhere is somewhat contradictorily an imagined place inside your own head, but perhaps one not regularly visited. Be it through an engaging narrative, otherworldly or fantastical vibes, or metaphorical content that engages your brain in thoughts regarding anything but the who and here and now, songs that send are hugely enhanced by psychedelic substances, and vice versa, in that an already weakened grasp on reality can be further loosed. Sending factors can be hard to tangibly label or identify; it’s one of those “I know it when I see it” things, only in this case it’s obviously ears and not eyes we’re using. Things that I’ve found to hinder a sending vibe are references to our time and place, biographical tales of real people or events; basically any lyrical content that essentially ties the track to a real-world place or happening, however not always – The track Go by Public Service Broadcasting for instance is a huge sender, and the lyrical content of that track is made up exclusively of audio clips taken from the NASA control room during the Apollo 11 moon landing. It’s often easier to identify why a song isn’t sending, as opposed to nailing down why another track is.
Even though the quality of sending is based on getting out of one’s head, that isn’t to say a sender of a track has no value in regard to self-analysis, and perhaps even the opposite is true – the less you get in your own way, after all, the more you can objectively review the self and your patterns. A track that puts you in orbit may grant you the space and point of view required to take a wider snapshot of any issues you want (or are being forced) to face.
The Shred factor is a measure of commitment and execution and sheer musical chops. Shred is traditionally reserved for a wild guitar solo, however midway through the trip I’d redefined it internally as the above – I consider the extended keyboard solo in The Doors’ Light My Fire to shred, for example. Supporting this, Steve Vai, noted guitar shredder, is quoted thusly:
The terminology (shred)(is) used for someone who can play an instrument, and has such a tremendous amount of technique that what they do just seems completely effortless and absurd. It's like this burst of energy that just comes out in extremely fast tearing kind of playing where the notes actually connect. Shred has to have a particular kind of 'tide' to it, I think, that actually gives you that 'blow away' factor that makes it impressive, to a certain degree."
Shred, outside of the musical definition, is a visceral term referring to the utter destruction of a thing, a process by which only tatters remain afterward. Similar to someone “absolutely killing” something, in that they’ve executed a thing so damn well that it’s metaphorically dead – nothing more could be done, the execution is complete. So, to Shred, is to simply do a thing well enough that it boggles the mind, drops jaws and maybe pants/panties, and leaves one thinking that literally nothing else needs to be added, nor indeed could be added, to enhance the spectacle.
Any particular musical genre can be psychedelic, and musical taste and genre definitions are subject to personal interpretation anyway, for the most part – I’m definitely not going to try to pin anything down or set definitions outside of the two I just did. In my track reviews I’m simply going to introduce the track, score them on the two metrics above, tell you why I think the track is amazing and what it did to/for me, and leave it at that. I welcome any and all discussion, recommendations, feedback, meal vouchers, song recommendations, etc – Reddit is a vehicle for the exchange of ideas (supposedly, nyuck nyuck), and I’ll be putting enough of mine out there – I’d sincerely love to hear yours.
Alright, enough of that, though. Let’s chat tunes.

The Send and the Shred, Ep 1.
Track #2 VOLTO! – Grip It
Following a wild introduction to the night via the absolutely soaring track Meeting Of The Spirits by fusion outfit Mahavishnu Orchestra, we are dumped into this energetic and riffy beast by VOLTO!, a fusion/proggy jam band out of LA, California. I have no idea how I originally found out about these guys – up until writing this piece I thought they were with the Constellation Records label, home of Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Do Make Say Think, Fly Pan Am, and many other vaguely obtuse and obscure artists I used to pride myself for knowing about. I thought I had memories of reading through the ordering catalogue packaged with GY!BE’s Lift Your Skinny Fists album and seeing VOLTO! listed, but apparently I’ve just made that entirely up. Memory, eh?
Anyway, this track is purely instrumental, like all VOLTO! releases, and sits on top some incredibly capable drumming by none other than Lord Danny Carey, noted octopus god who sits behind the skins for Tool. If you’ve heard Tool, you know how complex and layered Danny’s drumming can be, but with VOLTO! it’s a little pared back – there’s still a truckload of fills and falls and pockets just filled with percussion, but you can hear that it’s more relaxed, less programmed, maybe. Much more, appropriately, jammy in nature, and I like to think he’s playing all this with a pretty chill grin set upon his face.
Riding this rhythm is some very tasty chugwork by a guy called John Zeigler, who I’m not going to pretend to know much about, aside from the fact that he plays also for Pygmy Love Circus alongside Danny. It’s riffy as hell, and the main hook is one that is prone to wedge itself in your mind in the best possible way. Big, brash, well-constructed, fantastic tone: exactly what the track calls for and nothing more or less. There’s a solo in the middle-ish of the track that sounds straight out the credits of perhaps any 80’s action movie you care to imagine, which is nice if you like that sort of thing. Sunsets, California coast highways, that kind of scene.
Said solo gives way to a nice keyboard section that could have been mistaken for something from Mahavishnu Orchestra if you ignored the previous 3 minutes, then it gets bridgey, then Danny does some nice stuff, then it’s back to some good ol’ riffage to close out. This track doesn’t reinvent anything, doesn’t try to be something more than what it is, and it’s perfect in what it is for that reason – it’s just a tasty showcase of some fine guitar and drum work.
I was about 40 minutes post-drop at this stage (having dropped at midnight, but started the playlist ~30 minutes past 12), and the psychedelic state was just moving from the energetic buzz of anticipation to actual lift-off – the artwork displayed on the tv was decidedly wavy, and the slightest washes of violet and blue and yellow were noticeable, but only at the very fringes of perception, gone as soon as they arrived. I was taking off. Tray tables firmly stowed, please and thank you.
The main draw of this song, and the reason it is where it is in the playlist (like a lot of these early tracks) is purely the energy. I knew at this stage of the night I’d be bouncing my feet on the carpet, tapping on things, trying to burn off those pre-trip jitters or at least ride them out, and having a soundtrack that allows and indeed encourages you to table drum and shake your head around and generally release is a perfect match. I was well into it, following the lead riff with some truly awful fretwork on my air guitar, shaking my bonce about like a loon. Top stuff.
Headspace wise, it was too early to be hit with any metaphors or grandiose life lessons, no revelatory offerings from beyond the veil. All my mind was doing was grinning with glee, both at the awesome bombastic qualities of Grip It, and in anticipation of what was to come.
Send: Instrumental tracks obviously suffer from a lack of overt spoken narrative, in regard to measuring send, however without words to get in the way the mind is then free to absorb pure music. This track is not designed to put you anywhere in particular, but the pure simplicity of some tasty riffs played loud, on top of a driving and filled-to-bursting percussion track, is more than enough to bypass the front brain, activate the reptilian rhythm centres of the mind and strongly encourage you to give in to those desires, whispering “move your body, feel the beat”. Comparatively, though, 2/5.
Shred: Shred is what this track is all about. As stated earlier, it just delivers a truckload of solid percussion and riffing, straight up, already signed for and the dude has started unpacking it all in your living room. All you can do is accept it, and the sooner you do, the sooner you’ll love what’s being presented here. Don’t try to find hidden depths or meaning, it’s purely unpretentious slabs of high-energy guitar rock. 4/5.
So, thus is VOLTO!’s Grip It, and thus concludes the first entry of this Send and Shred series. I hope to keep this up at least weekly, and obviously moving forward I won’t have a 2000odd-word-long introduction to shove down your throats. I also don’t plan on writing out an entry for all 80 tracks contained within the playlist – you’ll note I already skipped the first track. I don’t have an exact plan of what songs I’ll pick, but there’s a good chunk there that I have very fond memories with, so we’ll see where that takes us.
Thanks for reading. Hope to see you in the comments. If not, see you next time!

2019.03.19 19:50 LetsRead_YouTube Dating Story 1

Tinder. A poisonous cesspool of lies and prejudgment, somehow straddling the dead ground in between
apathy and desperation. The ultimate set of first world problems. Being casually ignored by a girl who
sees you as little more than a backup plan. Figuring out a potential flame was only after a free plate of
Korean BBQ. At least, that’s what I thought until one particular profile happened to find its way in front
of my thumb.
Her name was Faith. She was beautiful. Rich, ebony skin and deep, golden brown eyes; her hair was
perfect, marvelously aesthetic curls that tantalized the eye as they fell. ‘Pharmacy graduate, trying to
make the world a better place’, her profile read. To think that she was intelligent and idealistic to boot, all
my reservations were washed away as I swiped right, feeling a spark of excitement in my chest.
Despite my initial enthusiasm, I was well practiced at pushing my hope for potential dates to the very
back of my mind. Tinder can be hell on a person’s self-esteem, so for the sake of my own mental health, I
didn’t really think about the perfect girl’s profile.
Dawn, a few days later. My phone vibrates against the hard wood of my bedside table, a harsh buzz that
echoes around my weary skull and never fails to wake me. Irritably, I rolled over in bed, grabbing the
offending device to see just who was evil enough to text at such an ungodly hour. It was a notification
from Tinder, I had a match. With tired, but curious eyes, I unlocked my phone, waiting for the app to
open so I could see just who I had matched with.
What I saw made my heart skip a beat. It was her, it was Faith.
I leapt out of bed, bounding downstairs to make myself a coffee. I had to wake myself up, I had to be
lucid enough to think of a witty opener. Maybe a joke, or a compliment, anything that would make a good
first impression on the girl I found myself fawning over. I decided to just be polite, she was obviously
something of an early riser, so maybe some morning well wishes would serve me well.
Good Morning! I’m guessing you’re up early for work, hope you have a lovely day.
My heart was practically pounding by the time I pressed ‘send’, my head spinning with hopelessly
romantic ideas. To my absolute joy, her reply was fast.
Good Morning to you too! Yeah, I commute to work so I get up super early. Kinda busy right now, but I’ll
message you later. x x x
I couldn’t believe it, she was utterly charming. I struggled to hide my delight as I completed my morning
We talked for a few days, sharing interests and telling each other our worst Tinder experiences. My
dating-app regrets were forgotten in the midst of those rolling conversations. Eventually, we arranged a
Sunday dinner date at a little Vietnamese place I knew of. The food was phenomenal and it never failed to
impress, but I must admit to being incredibly nervous in the run up to our meeting.
When the time came, I shaved, put on my best shirt and the classiest cologne I could find, before walking
down to the Vietnamese place. It was a few blocks away, but I found the walk helped calm my nerves and
it gave me time to decide which anecdotes I would break out to combat lulls in the conversation.

Walking into the restaurant, I saw her immediately. She was radiant; she stood out from the medley of
people so much that my eyes were instantly drawn to her. She smiled, I smiled, I felt my cheeks turn a
shade of hot-pink.
It was even more magical than I imagined. I helped her choose a Vietnamese dish that wasn’t too spicy,
she helped me hold chopsticks like an actual grownup. She was complimentary and an excellent
conversationalist, every minute in her company was a leisurely breeze.
Until it came to her family.
“Well, I was actually born in Zimbabwe, though I grew up not too far from here”, she said with the same
cute smile she had in her profile picture.
“Oh really? Wow! Did your parents work over there or something?”
“My Dad works for the government over there, but he travels to a lot of different countries as part of his
job”, she said, her smile fading slowly as she spoke, “he has a hard job, I think so anyway, he has to make
very important decisions so naturally he’s under a lot of pressure”.
“Jesus, it sounds like he has a very important job!”
“He does, and naturally he gets paid very well, it’s something our family is very grateful for, we’ve
always been very privileged in that respect. Seeing the way some people live in Zimbabwe has always
kept me humble”.
God, she was so thoughtful and world-wise. I found myself staring into her beautiful, ochre eyes as she
spoke of her extraordinary life.
“So what exactly does your Dad for the government, is he like a minister or something?” I asked after two
bowls of Chicken Pho arrived at our table.
“He – he works in security”, her stutter had me paying extra attention, “he was one of the top police
officer’s in the country until an incoming president gave him, well, a lot more responsibility”.
“Oh that sounds fantastic, he must be quite a man”
“He was, shall we say, tough to live with. I think that’s why my Mom had us sent to school here in the
US, he could be kinda mean sometimes, but he’s my Dad, so, I love him all the same. How about you,
what do your parents do?”
It was obvious she found the topic awkward, and her question to me was little more than a tactical subject
change. Still, we continued on the subject for a while, I talked about my Mom and Dad, what they did for
a living. We told each other little stories, tried each other’s food, the whole thing was just fantastic, the
best date I’ve ever been on. The night ended with us agreeing to see each other again, I was elated.

But then, after a couple of days, her message replies were arriving later and later, until one day they
simply ceased. I was desperate not to come off as needy or desperate, so although it took all the will I had,
I didn’t sent her any follow up texts.
The next week, I had a particularly bad day and the whole thing was weighing on my mind, I broke. I
typed out a length message about how although we’d had fun that night, I was disappointed that she had
just ghosted me. I said something along the lines of hoping she was okay and to get in touch if she wanted
to go out again. Still trying to claw back what I thought was my dream girl.
This time, the reply was instantaneous. Only it didn’t come from Faith’s number, it came from a restricted
one. [Restricted] was all it read, along with a message that was as confusing as it was mysterious.
Don’t try to talk to, Faith anymore. Forget her.
I immediately hammered out a reply.
And who is this exactly!? I was horrified when it occurred to me that this could be her boyfriend, that the
sweet, thoughtful girl I thought I knew was some kind of unfaithful liar. But again, the reply arrived in
mere moments. What I read made my blood run cold.
It was my address. House number, street name, even the zip code.
I rushed to the window, scanning the dark street and parked cars for any sign of someone watching me.
There was nothing, just dead silence in the empty, moonlit street. How in the hell did she know where I
lived and just who in God’s name was texting me!?
Out of pure fear, I didn’t send Faith anymore messages. After a while of considering approaching law
enforcement about the situation, I decided that the most likely explanation was that she really did have a
boyfriend. It’s not uncommon for girls to use Tinder to cheat; I figured maybe I was just unlucky enough
to have been that guy.
However, just last week, I found my mind wandering back to that wonderful dinner date at the
Vietnamese place, how nice it was, even if it didn’t bloom into anything. I happened to know Faith’s last
name, and although I’m not proud of this, I decided to look her up on social media.
Everything was gone. Her Instagram had vanished, no more Facebook profile, her twitter handle came
back with nothing. I decided to google her name. Again, nothing, I scoured the search pages for
something, anything, that would inform me of her fate. But it was like looking for a ghost.
Only, I did find something; an article about a Zimbabwean politician that had recently captured the
presidency in a bloodless coup. He had cracked down on his political rivals, torturing and murdering
thousands while subjecting prisoners to horrendous forms of torture. He also had a name that looked very
The article went on to say that he had appointed his children to positions of power within the country’s
security services. There were rumors that some of them even presided over advanced interrogations that
used powerful narcotics to secure confessions.
My jaw dropped.

Pharmacy Graduate.
“My Dad works for the government over there – he’s in security”
“He could be mean sometimes”
I took my phone out, removed the sim card, and then flushed the small piece of plastic down the toilet. I
took a walk around the block, checking for idling cars, then down to the narrow river near my house,
where I tossed the cellphone into the running waters.
On the walk back, I thought of Faith’s deep brown eyes, of how she used her chopsticks expertly while
eating her noodles. I thought of the sweet, innocent young woman I thought I had come to know…
..and how wrong I had been about her.

2017.03.10 00:16 RedFive-GoingIn UPM: The Journey In, Onward & Upward

tl;dr; What advice do you have for people coming up the ladder or wanting to make a transition towards being a UPM?
= =
Welcome to a new series of blog-style articles called "Open Dialog". These are intended to generate discussion and comments. Enjoy!
= =
I am often asked how I get to do the job I do. People ask how to move from TV to film, or vice versa. People ask how to start doing bigger budgets. These questions have no straight-forward answer. There is no golden ticket to being a UPM, no checklist of things to directly do in order to achieve these goals.
I was discussing this with someone last week who asked how they might be able to start doing bigger budget projects. I certainly started on films which were sub-$1M, then gradually got offered bigger and bigger shows. To date, my largest budget for a studio was $143M. The largest show I did as a UPM was just under $120M. The smallest show was $350k. It’s difficult to quantify ‘what I did’.
For me, it was not only being in the right place at the right time and getting the opportunity to show what I can do by two producers who trusted me. It was also years of hard work and dedication to learning.
My story is unique. Ask 100 people how they got their start, how they got to be where they are now and you’ll hear 100 different stories.
I have known I wanted to make films since I was five. Yes, I am one of those people. Aside from working with a cinematographer way back in my early teens while he worked on commercials, I really started out as an intern on two features for an Italian film company. I was 18. Meanwhile I was working at a local CBS affiliate doing various things - eventually as the Director of Weekend News (the guy controlling the technicals of the show, not the news stories). Then, I finished school and moved down to Los Angeles. After a few months of no jobs, living on the street for a few weeks (don’t tell my mom), I landed a job on a show as a set PA. After a few years, I was an AD. Then, on one show working as a Second AD, I was thrust into the office setting. Long-story-short here, I was enamored and mesmerized by all the things that really go on behind the scenes to allow the set to do what we did. So, I started over in the office as a PA. Worked my way back up. A few more years pass. I was a production supervisor on a high-budget documentary with a big name director. He and his Producer were kind enough to give me a shot at doing the budget for a shoot in Mexico …and boom, I was made the UPM. Eight years after that, collecting non-union UPM days along the way, I was able to join the DGA.
I worked hard to prove I can be trusted with bigger projects. I worked hard to create great budgets and well thought-out production plans. I took time in the evenings and on weekends to review things, attend some seminars, have meetings with people who would lend their time and share their experiences. I listened a lot. I sent resumes to hundreds of people. I pounded the pavement. In the beginning, I did a lot of budget work for free. Tried everything I could do to show I had what it takes to be given the next opportunity. I still do all these things (well, perhaps not doing budgets for free anymore). My network has grown a lot since those beginning days. My resume is much longer and my experiences are much broader.
Each show I do is its own challenge. Each project has its own heart and desires. Each director their own vision. Each producer their own needs. Learning the ways to navigate not only the needs, stress, and nuances of how to create budgets and schedules are beset only by the need to understand the hierarchy of Hollywood and cultivate relationships.
Still, how did I get here? Hard work, dedication, sacrifice and a little luck. Many people say “It’s who you know” that will propel you - and while this is a lot of it, there is also something to be said about what you know. You can be besties with the head of a studio, but if they hire you and you fail because you really don’t know the job - that’s egg on not only your face but theirs too.
Considering the core query, looking back on how I got here, what did I do which helped me get here? I don’t have a solid, one-stop answer. It’s a combination of things.
Have lunch with people. Offer a meet at Starbucks to say hello and get to know someone (I can sometime be coaxed by way of a Venti Chai, hint). Cultivate a friendship which will perhaps lead to a job in the future. Perhaps they know people who know people, who know people…
Study. Take the time to review things which have nothing to do with your current project. Read blogs & websites and see what other people are doing. Attend some industry conventions and see what the latest buzz items are. Knowing a new technology is out there will help you when figuring out how to do a shot or something later.
Learn more. I was the UPM/Line Producer on a film at Fox. At the time, I was horrible at Post Production. I knew just barely enough to get by. So, on that show, I hired a Post Supervisor with a caveat - she had to hire me as a Post PA when I was done with the shooting. She did. I worked as a PA in Post for six months after. Learned a ton. We did another show together, and today, I have 5 projects with Post Supervisor credit. I now know that world too, which helps me as a UPM. Take a class, feed your brain. Listen, 10 years ago, I did stuff I thought was awesome. Looking back, I have grown and know so much more. In 10 more years, I’ll know even more than now.
Stay updated. Ensure you have or have access to the latest rate guides and contract information.
Be involved. Nothing creates a sense of community than getting out there and being involved. Peoples access to you, and yours to them, when people are active in the community. Our community of filmmakers are things like this Reddit, or local gatherings like Women in Film, DGA and PGA events, or a host of other seminars like ones put on by Greenhouse.
Be attentive and show you care. In whatever project you do, be there. Be 100% dedicated to the show and ensure your producers know it. If you are half there, people will notice. Dedication has lead me to additional work, because people see I really care. Which I do. You should care about the work you do. Do it to the best of your abilities.
Do more. Ask what you can do to expand your knowledge. I was the VP of Production and Post at a company for awhile. While there, I was interested in dabbling in marketing and promotions. They allowed me some opportunities and I ended up running the Oscar campaign for a film. Do I do this now for a living? No. However, what I learned from doing that is still referenced in projects I do today.
Don’t be afraid to PA. Test other waters. I can’t tell you how many people I speak with who want to simply jump into the hot seat as UPM. No. Learn the ropes. Understand how things work and you will be a better UPM later. I rest a lot of my abilities on the fact that I have done a lot of different jobs. I have been a Grip, Boom Op, done Post, Marketing, been a VP at a major TV studio, intern’ed in Wardrobe, been a PA, AD, POC, APOC, Camera Assistant and more. If you don’t want to actually work all those jobs - find people who do those jobs, get in their head, ask questions and understand what they do.
Find your niche. For me it was tough shows in odd places. I slowly built my career on being able to parachute into tough places, figure out how to make a film and do it - on time and on budget. From Zimbabwe to Jordan, and Scotland to South Korea, 18 countries later I am very comfortable doing this. I get hired because of this experience. Find what drives you and figure out how to put that into your job.
Do it well. Whether you are doing a project for $100k or $100M, do it well. Take the time to ensure your budget and plan are well thought out. Communicate issues to the crew and your producers/studio. Strive to ensure your projects never go over budget or off schedule. Think through as many ‘what if’ disaster scenarios as possible and you’ll be ready in case something goes awry.
Experience Matters. Don’t expect to grow into this position with one project worth of experience. Have a long term game plan and you’ll get there. Take each show for what it is and learn what you can from it. Keep that knowledge for the next one.
Choose projects which speak to you. I was once given the scripts to two films and asked which one I wanted to do. Both got made, but I chose the $4M film shot in a far-off land, as opposed to the $22M feature directed by a legend. Why? I felt the smaller film had more heart, more grit and was a bigger challenge. That decision has not haunted me one bit. The bigger feature was a total disaster, and while the smaller one failed to gain mainstream notoriety - it is one of those films which I still hold as one of the best I have ever done. (check out: The Stoning of Soraya M.) So, be ok with passing on shows you don’t connect with. Do projects which will challenge you and you can feel proud of.
Read this Reddit. Is this not a well veiled plug for this group? Well, so be it. It stands to convey the aspect of a community of like-minded people. Being a UPM and/or LP is a fairly lonely position. No one else on the show does what you do, and most of the time 80% of the crew feels you are screwing them over - even when you are not. So, use forums like this one to ask for help, query others on best practices and share your experiences too.
Love what you do. I end this article with my greatest advice. You must love what you do! L-o-v-e. Don’t be a UPM for money, glory or fame. Do it because you love doing the job. It’s a tough job, no doubt - but rewarding too. As a related note, try to hire people who love what they do too. My father once told me, “Find a job you love and you’ll never work a day in your life.” Indeed.
This is your career. Make the most of it.
Have some additional words of wisdom? What’s your story? How did you do it? (or how are you doing working on it currently?)
The goal of this discussion is to inspire those who are looking to break in or move up. I encourage you to share your thoughts, experiences, and wisdom. Liked this article? Find other Open Dialog discussions by searching for ‘Open Dialog’ within FilmTVBudgeting.

2016.06.22 11:54 HydroCakes Organizing UFOS

Hello all. This post is a work in progress. I'm trying to collect keystone cases in ufology and put them into some kind of context complete with thoughts, sources and dates.
Establishing a Link @ NASA
Buzz Aldrin talks about UFOs on a documentary made by Discovery called First on the Moon: The Untold Story in 2005. He later continues his story on Larry King (best date I can find is 2007?) explaining in long way that he most likely saw ejected panels from this ship itself, and again during his Reddit AMA. This checks out for me, seeing as the edits in First on the Moon are pretty deceitful and almost the EXACT SAME EDITS are made in Entertainment Tonight's Documentary Aliens on the Moon: The Truth Exposed in 2014. Buzz Aldrin does not link UFOs to NASA, nor does it seem like he backtracked his statements or does it appear that he believes visitations of any kind are happening.
Gordon Cooper gives a good interview here and I'm not quite sure of the source. There is a lot more research to be done on this source, but for now, Gordon's interview about things he's experienced seems pretty candid, clear and for the most part unedited. Furthermore, in this interview with Yolanda Gaskins he tells the same stories, as well as here(Haven't managed to track down the sources of these videos). However, these interviews do not link NASA to and kind of UFO activity. I think it is fair to say that it links the military (film confiscated by military officials). This does not point to any cover up. He describes "saucer" shaped UFOs while flying in Germany. He cannot say how big they were and doesn't say how many there were though they did make visual contact, only that they "flew in formation" and they "zipped away" easily out maneuvering their plains. He also describes seeing film shot by a military crew. While holding the frame up to the window, he saw a "saucer" shaped UFO that had landed with "three little landing gear" out.
Military Interception Cases
Above Tehran, September 19 1976 two F-4 jets (flown by ??? and General Parviz Jafari) are scrambled by the IIAF in response to four civilian phone calls from the Shemiran area of Tehran. The following report found it's way to the American Department of Defense. Jafari has appeared many times through all sorts of media, including as a panelist at the famous National Press Club which was held in Washington D.C. on 11/12/07, giving interview on Coast to Coast am on 11/19/07 (audio of which I'd like to hear). He streamed an interview live on random YouTuber TruthLoader's channel on 9/5/13 and has been part of many Documantary TV programs which I'll populate as I track them down and Identify them.
USAF Col. Frank B. McKenzie?
Belgium in the '80s?
Videos and companion videos:
Ariel School in Ruwa, Zimbabwe 1994 If you're not familiar with this one just know that the video I've linked to is a compilation of several programs that have been made about this event over the years. There only program I can identify in here is a recent documentary called Experiencers.
Old KGB Footage This one is part of a larger documentary which is hiding on YouTube somewhere but I've been unable to find. It's really interesting footage if you ask me, and the story of where it came from is compelling.
The military footage from Mexico is an interesting story, but it seems to actually be hard to track down exactly where it came from. Best as I can find so far, Jaime Maussan announced that the Mexican Department of Defense would hold a press release on May 11, 2004. There, the footage (linked above) would be released. However, I cannot find any info about this press release.
More to come

2016.04.26 04:36 Aklav Collection of ENFP'isms!

Heidi Priebe is a staff writer at Thought Catalog. Her bio reads: She drinks too much coffee and criticizes all Myers-Briggs types equally.
The following are articles she has written about the Myers-Briggs Personality Types, and I have collected everything relating ENFP. Enjoy!

Here’s What It’s Time You Forgave Yourself For, Based On Your Myers-Briggs Personality Type

Forgive yourself for leaving when you should have stayed.
There were times, ENFP, when you leapt before you looked and failed to be there for the people who needed you most. There were times when you let excitement get the better of you and failed to think through the consequences. And it’s time that you forgave yourself for all of it. You’ve learned when to run free and when to stay put. You’ve learned that your choices are not made in a vacuum. You’ve learned that you are accountable for the commitments you make, and you are not about to make the same mistakes again. So forgive yourself for having made them once. You are a better person now for having realized it.

I Asked Each Personality Type To Open Up About Their Sexuality – Here’s What They Had To Say

ENFPs And Sexual Orientation
Of the 445 participants sampled:
75% identified as heterosexual
19% identified as bisexual or pansexual
4% identified as homosexual.
2% identified as ‘other.’
ENFPs And Sex Drive
When asked to rate their sex drive on a scale of one to ten, the mean ranking was 6.92. ENFPs And Hookup Culture
When asked how they felt about “hookup culture:”
45% of participants selected “I dislike it and rarely/never engage in it.”
50% of participants selected “I like some aspects of it but dislike other ones.”
5% of participants selected “I love it and almost exclusively look for casual hookups”

I Surveyed Each Myers-Briggs Type To See Which Type They Were Most Attracted To – Here Are The Results

23% of ENFPs listed themselves as most attracted to INTJs.
14% listed themselves as most attracted to INFJs.
13% listed themselves as most attracted to other ENFPs.
Overall, ENFPs showed a significant preference for other intuitive-dominant personality types.

What Each Myers-Briggs Type Needs For The New School Season

Vacuum Robot
Let’s be serious – you’ll be too busy attending your 500 extra-curricular activities and staying up all night writing essays the day before they’re due to do any cleaning this year. But you still want your house to look presentable for the parties you plan on throwing. Enter the robot vacuum, which literally does your dirty work for you. Plus it’s kind of like a pet that you don’t have to feed. Score.

Here’s What Would Happen To You In A Horror Movie Based On Your Myers-Briggs Personality Type

In their usual fashion of refusing to process anything remotely negative, the ENFP would fail to acknowledge the impending danger in a horror movie and get ruthlessly murdered while singing show tunes in the shower. It will be the reminder the other characters need to get their asses in gear about the killer on the loose.

Here’s Who You’d Be On ‘The Bachelor’ Based On Your Myers-Briggs Personality Type

The contestant who gets super jealous if they aren’t chosen for all of the fun, adventurous dates.

Here Is What Your Ex Still Misses About You, Based On Your Myers-Briggs Personality Type

Dating an ENFP guarantees that no two days are ever quite the same – and your exes miss the enthusiastic variety you’d bring to their day-to-day life. Since you parted ways, their life has lost the inexplicable sparkle that you always brought into it. Your positivity and inventiveness lit their world up – in a way that nobody since you has been able to match.

Here’s What Kind Of Boyfriend You Are Based On Your Myers-Briggs Personality Type

You are the hopeless romantic boyfriend. When you fall hard for someone, there’s no outrageous length you won’t go to in order to sweep that person off their feet. You’re the master of elaborate surprises and extravagant romantic gestures. You want to make your partner feel as though they’re living in a modern-day fairytale – one that you’ve craftily written for the two of you to star in and play out.

Here’s What Kind Of Girlfriend You Are Based On Your Myers-Briggs Personality Type

You’re the partner-in-crime girlfriend. Whichever wild antic, adventurous trip or crazy idea your partner comes up with, you are not only on board for but are probably even more excited about than they are. You love the way you do everything else – passionately and without restraint. Your partner never has to question whether you love them, are invested in them or are down for the next big adventure. You are, and you’re probably more excited about all of it than they are.

Here Is Where You’ll Meet The Love Of Your Life, Based On Your Myers-Briggs Personality Type

That they need stability in order to thrive.
Hiking up a mountainside in Nepal, because the love of your life also took a 6-month sabbatical to go adventuring. Obviously.

What Each Myers-Briggs Personality Type Has Trouble Admitting To Themselves

That they need stability in order to thrive.
ENFPs and ENTPs are the ultimate adventurers. Their lives are a constant quest for the new, the novel and the unconventional. But what this type loathes admitting to themselves is that they actually function best within a system of external structure. When their inferior introverted sensing is appeased by their external environment, they are free to let the creativity that stems from their extroverted intuition run wild. And letting their Ne run wild is undoubtedly what these types do best.

What Each Myers-Briggs Personality Type Means When They Say ‘I Love You’

I’m enthralled by you.
It’s not that their love lacks depth, intensity or commitment – quite the opposite, in fact – but when an ENFP says they love you, you can guarantee their heart is turning a thousand miniature cartwheels every time you enter the room. This type loves the way they do everything else – passionately, fully and enthusiastically. The thought of you drives them wild and their ‘I love you’ roughly translates to ‘My heart is basically BURSTING OUT OF MY CHEST every time I think about you, which is approximately all of the time.’

Why The Modern Dating Scene Is Driving You Batshit Crazy, Based On Your Myers-Briggs Personality Type

You absolutely love having options – but there’s a point at which options become option paralysis. With a never-ending number of profiles to swipe through, bars to frequent, apps to download and dates to go on, your ‘greener grass syndrome’ is quick to spiral out of control. Sure, the date you went on tonight was fun, but what about that cute guy you’ve been chatting with on Tinder? What if he’s THE ONE? You simply HAVE to see that date through… and then the next one… and the next one…

How Myers-Briggs Personality Types Are Portrayed Online Vs. How They Are In Real Life

Online Description:
ENFPs are passionate, idea-generating revolutionists who inspire others through their fierce determination and spirit.
Real ENFP:
Hides inside watching cat videos for literally days at a time.

Here Is What Energizes Each Myers-Briggs Personality Type

ENFPs and ENTPs are energized by exploring and synthesising new ideas.
ENFPs and ENTPs lead with extroverted intuition – a cognitive function that gains energy through brainstorming and exploring new ideas. When these types are low on energy, they recharge by speculating about new plans or projects they can take on, and new adventures or opportunities they could partake in. Nothing rears these types up quite like the emergence of an exciting new idea.

The Realization That Will Trigger Your Quarter-Life Crisis, Based On Your Myers-Briggs Personality Type

ENTP and ENFP – The realization that life is too short for them to experience absolutely everything they want to experience before they die.
Types that lead with extroverted intuition are ceaselessly possibility-oriented, and take a “Try everything once” approach to life. By the time they’ve hit a quarter of a century or so, however, the ENxPs of the world are beginning to realize that the time they have on earth is limited – and that they may not have time to cash in on absolutely every pipe dream that they have established for themselves.
The realization that they may have to start discriminating between appealing plans for the future is enough to launch the possibility-oriented ENxP types into full-on crisis mode – and elicit a quarter-life crisis.

The Support Group That Each Myers-Briggs Personality Type Needs

A support group for people who are way more excited about life than everybody else and need to find new people to high five.

What Each Myers-Briggs Personality Type Needs To Let Go Of In Order To Grow

ENFP and ENTP – The fear that they’re missing out on something better.
ENFPs and ENTPs are ruled by dominant extroverted intuition – a function that picks up on a seemingly endless slew of possibilities in the user’s external environment. While this is a wonderful skill at the best of times, it’s a stunting one at worst. ENFPs and ENTPs can easily become quickly paralyzed by their own rampant perceptions – wanting to experience everything and consequently following through on nothing.
These types needs to let go of their fear that there is constantly a better idea, situation, opportunity, person or chance out there for them to pursue. When they learn to focus in on what they’ve chosen, ENFPs and ENTPs are capable of incredible feats. But first they have to learn to say goodbye to FOMO.

What Each Myers-Briggs Personality Type Is Like As A Fitness Instructor

Sings along with all of the background music and regularly asks the class if they are EXCITED to be getting FIT, which they expect a chorus of enthusiastic cheers in response to.

The Privilege That Is Inherent To Each Myers-Briggs Personality Type

ENFP and ENTP: The ability to fathom a plethora of different solutions to any given problem.
Being a type that leads with extroverted intuition means that you are naturally able to tap into the wide scope of possibilities that exist in your external environment. While other types may get stuck in stagnancy and lack the ability to see a way out of the ruts that they get stuck in, you are naturally creative and adaptable. You can usually think of approximately fifty solutions to any given problem, which means you never stay helpless for long.

The Warning Label Each Myers-Briggs Personality Type Should Come With

May spontaneously up and move to Antarctica moments after making a serious commitment to you because they saw a picture of a penguin online that looked cute.

Here Is Which Myers-Briggs Personality Type You Should Go To Based On What Kind Of Advice You Need

When you’re feeling stuck and need help seeing new possibilities, go to an ENFP or an ENTP.
ENFPs and ENTPs lead with extroverted intuition, a cognitive function that is constantly scanning the horizons for new, exciting possibilities. No situation is too odd or unconventional for these eclectic types and if it’s an undiscovered solution you’re searching for, they’re the ones to go to. You’ll walk away with ten thousand different solutions to any given problem or situation and feel supremely empowered to boot.

Why Each Myers-Briggs Personality Type Is Good In Bed

They are always down to try something new, unconventional and exciting – particularly if they know that it will please you.

How To Be A Good Friend To Each Myers-Briggs Personality Type

Believe in them.
ENFPs set their sights high and their ambitions strong. This type is constantly being told by others to ‘be realistic,’ but it’s their unrealistic nature that helps them accomplish so many incredible feats in life. To be a good friend to an ENFP, make them feel as though you truly believe in their wildest ambitions and dreams. Emotional support is infinitely more important to this type than practical or instrumental support.

Here’s What To Get Your Significant Other For Valentine’s Day Based On Their Myers-Briggs Personality Type

A Retro World Map Canvas
ENFPs are the ultimate explorers at heart – they’re always dreaming of where to go or what to do next. Fuel their grandiose, wanderlusty ways by gifting them with this larger-than-life watercolor map. They can dreamily gaze at it over their morning coffee – and then excitedly text you about all the new trips they’re planning on taking with you.

Why The World Needs Each Myers-Briggs Personality Type

The world needs ENFPs to inspire people who have lost their purpose and can’t find their way.

What Each Myers-Briggs Personality Type Looks Like When They’re Thriving

An ENFP at their best is open, inventive, compassionate and committed to his or her goals. They possess the unique ability to accomplish almost anything they set their minds to and serve as an inspiration to those around them. This type of ENFP is able to balance his or her big picture ideals with their day-to-day emotional and practical concerns. They have let go of feelings of anxiety, inadequacy and jealousy and are able to welcome both success and failure with open arms and a ceaselessly resilient spirit. Others look to them as a source of inspiration and strength.

How Each Myers-Briggs Personality Type Likes To Fall In Love

Intensely, excitedly and passionately.
ENFPs dive headfirst into almost everything they do and that includes falling in love. Though this enthusiastic type can force themselves to take things slowly, they’d much rather be rushing eagerly into whichever new relationship strikes their fancy – and experiencing it full-force, no holds barred. They want to know the all of a person, as quickly, intensely and passionately as possible.

What Each Myers-Briggs Type Does When They’re Sick

Refuses to rest or relax – disbelieving that this will help them get better – and goes about their day as usual, getting everyone they encounter sick in the process.

How Each Myers-Briggs Personality Type Prepares For The Holidays

Gets so excited about the holiday festivities that they completely forget to go gift shopping and end up ferociously wrapping presents at 11pm on Christmas Eve.

Each Myers-Briggs Type’s Superpower

ENFPs are the ultimate optimists – they see the best in everything they do and everyone they meet – and they possess the unique ability to inspire the best in others. This type’s endless enthusiasm for the world around them – combined with their ability to chase and achieve their dreams – is incredibly motivating to those around them. If ENFPs were superheroes, their superpower would be inspiration.

Each Myers-Briggs Type’s Kryptonite

The ‘Greener Grass’ Syndrome.
ENFPs are ceaselessly scanning the horizons for new, exciting opportunities that they haven’t tried yet. Even when they’re perfectly content with their lives, this enthusiastic type is prone to abandoning a good thing in favor of the next, potentially better thing. Their never-ending quest for the next great thrill – and their corresponding aversion to stick with what they love – is the ENFP’s Achilles heel.

What Exhausts Each Myers-Briggs Personality Type

ENFPs thrive on the excitement of not knowing what comes next. This wildly imaginative type gains energy through speculating about the future and planning what could and might come next. Consequently, this type is drained by routine and predictability. When their options are limited and they don’t have a challenge to rise to, the ENFP becomes exhausted and lifeless.

What Each Myers-Briggs Personality Type Does After A Breakup

Tells everyone they’re over it, puts on a sunny face and secretly dies inside.

Here’s What You Should Dress Up As For Halloween Based On Your Myers-Briggs Personality Type

Something witty that showcases your enthusiasm.
You love making people laugh and the cleverer a costume you can think up, the better. Take the chance to showcase your enthusiasm for life through a particularly witty costume that you pull of with ease.

The Definition Of Heaven For Each Myers-Briggs Personality Type

A world in which all adventures are open to them and everyone they love is eager to come along.

How To Motivate Each Myers-Briggs Personality Type

Tell them that if anyone can do it, it’s them.
ENFPs thrive on feelings of empowerment. They want to impress and inspire others at all costs, so if you suggest that there’s a challenge only they can rise to, it’s the surest way of getting them on board. They’re eager to prove themselves and show the world that their wildest dreams can become a reality.

Here Is What Each Myers-Briggs Personality Type Is Afraid Of

ENFPs are the ultimate novelty-seekers. These highly enthusiastic individuals want to dive headfirst into life and experience it in as many different fashions and facets as possible. The thought of getting stuck in a monotonous routine or situation is paralyzing to them. They can think of nothing worse than having their lives stay the same indefinitely.

How Each Myers-Briggs Personality Type Is Likely To Die

Decides to go on a “Fun Jungle Adventure!” alone, without a map, and never returns.

Here Is Your Mental Age, Based On Your Myers-Briggs Personality Type

No matter how old you become, you maintain the drive, enthusiasm and passion of someone who is just coming into his or her own. You are young at heart but old in spirit – you may best be described as 21 going on 90. You have the energy of someone much younger than yourself but the wisdom of someone much older.

What Each Myers-Briggs Type Is Secretly Smug About

Leading an unconventional life because they’re more daring and creative than the other types.

16 Little Fall Things That Remind Us Of Each Myers-Briggs Personality Type

The Top Relationship Dealbreaker For Each Myers-Briggs Personality Type

Having limits placed on their freedom.
ENFPs have big visions of what they want to experience in life – and they aren’t interested in discarding those visions for anyone else. Though they’re happy to accommodate and incorporate a partner into their lives, the ENFP has no interest in a relationship that is going to hold them back – they need an open-minded partner who is happy to explore and adventure their way through life together.

Here’s Which Bratty Behavior Each Myers-Briggs Personality Type Needs To Check Themselves For

Disappearing on people.
ENFPs have a lot of feelings but a short attention span – which means their feelings for other people tend to change quickly. Unhealthy ENFPs have the tendency to keep their options open at the expense of other people – they may string friends or love interests along while they consider their many options for romance or the future in general. And as soon as something new catches their eye, they are at risk of disappearing without warning and leaving a string of confused loved ones in their wake.

What Each Myers-Briggs Type Does When They’re Angry (And What They Should Do Instead)

What they do: Attempts to look at things from the other person’s point of view and if it’s not what the ENFP would do, shames the other person for their way of handling the situation.
What they ought to do instead: Ask the other person to explain their side of the situation and try to understand the intent behind their actions.

Here Is Which Workout You Should Try Based On Your Myers-Briggs Personality Type

Adventure Racing
Your relatively short attention span means you struggle to commit to just one form of exercise – and with adventure racing, you don’t have to. This multi-disciplinary form of racing keeps you training for various sports simultaneously – every race provides a unique new challenge for you to rise to.

What Each Myers-Briggs Personality Type Was Like As A Child

What Each Myers-Briggs Type Does In College

What Each Myers-Briggs Personality Type Is Like As A Friend

The excitable yet surprisingly insightful friend who subtly gives you a pep talk every time you hang out and leaves you feeling like you could be the next President.

Here’s Which Drug You’re Most Likely To Enjoy Based On Your Myers-Briggs Personality Type

Extroverted intuition is somewhat of a high in itself – but a high that lacks focus. Ne dominant types are constantly searching for a way to defy their physical needs and improve their follow-through on their many excitable ideas – and speed (or amphetamine) provides a shortcut to accomplishing both. ENFP and ENTP types are highly at risk of developing an addiction to this intense chemical combination that both strengthens their concentration and increases their energy levels.
Many Ne dominant types are prescribed Adderall (a pharmaceutical drug that contains amphetamine) as a method of concentrating their racing thoughts. Many others self-medicate with speed or its sister drug methamphetamine.

Here’s Which Alcoholic Drink You Are Based On Your Myers-Briggs Personality Type

Wine? Brandy? Fruit? Why not have it all? If there’s anything the ENFP loves it’s variety and this festive beverage lets you try a little bit of everything. You’re colorful, lively and, okay, a wee bit indecisive – making this the perfect drink for you.

What We Forget To Thank Each Myers-Briggs Personality Type For

Thank you for believing in us even when we do not believe in ourselves.

Here’s Who Probably Has A Crush On You Based On Your Myers-Briggs Personality Type

Who’s crushing on you: The quiet, nerdy one.
They’re focused, composed and together. You’re scattered, enthusiastic and charming. At a first glance it might not be a match made in heaven but something about your quick wit and fearless charisma keeps drawing them back to you. Try giving this combination a shot – you may be surprised to find that their intensity and firmness balances you out in all the right ways.

How To Spot Each Myers-Briggs Personality Type On Facebook

Enthusiastically changes their relationship status/location/career path every 2-3 months and somehow gleans hundreds of likes from it every time.

Here’s How To Attract Each Myers-Briggs Personality Type

Flirt with them once and then act completely unattainable. ENFPs love a challenge.

How Each Myers-Briggs Type Contradicts Their Own Stereotype

Stereotype: ENFPs are hyperactive social butterflies who never stop spewing off about their feelings.
Reality: ENFPs have intuition and thinking as their extroverted functions, meaning they’re much more comfortable posing questions and debating ideas than they are talking about their feelings. They are also highly reflective and need more alone time than any other extrovert – many ENFPs actually initially assume themselves to be introverts!

You are Phoebe Buffay.
Zany, creative and full of new ideas, Phoebe Buffay plays an exaggerated version of the classic ENFP. No speculation is too out-there for this unconventional character who lets her extroverted intuition run wild when it comes to evaluating her career and romance options. When she needs to make a decision, Phoebe uses a strong set of internal morals to govern her. She is a classic ENFP – if her song lyrics won’t convince you, her outlandish actions will.

Here’s Who You Were In High School Based On Your Myers-Briggs Personality Type

You were either the class clown or the drama geek, possibly both. You had a strange, disjointed friend group that ranged from total nerds to reigning socialites and mostly you just floated around. You couldn’t wait to finish high school and go do your gap year in Zimbabwe, which you talked about pretty unceasingly.

Here’s How You Are In Bed Based On Your Myers-Briggs Personality Type

You don’t enjoy sex if you don’t have an emotional connection with your partner. That being said, you connect emotionally with just about everyone you meet so this isn’t really a problem for you. You’re a warm and enthusiastic lover who enjoys exploring all facets of their sexuality. You don’t NEED sex in the physical sense of the word but as soon as you meet someone you’re excited about, it is ON. In whatever weird new way you can think of.

Here’s Why You’re Still Single Based On Your Myers-Briggs Personality Type

You’re single because: You over-analyze social interactions to the point where it seems easier to just avoid them altogether.
You’ll get into a relationship when: A hell-bent ENFP follows you around for a long enough period of time that you eventually just accept that you’re dating.

Here’s Where You Should Live Based On Your Myers-Briggs Personality Type

San Francisco, USA.
ENFPs barf rainbows. San Francisco barfs rainbows. It’s a perfect fit. But in all seriousness, the liberal values of San Francisco have been attracting NF types for decades. Known for its hippy-dippy attitude and intellectual focus alike, the city is a perfect fit for the idealistic, liberally minded ENFP. This type enjoys exploring numerous avenues of self-expression and personal growth, which San Francisco provides ample opportunity for. This buzzing, vibrant city mirrors the attitude of the effervescent ENFP in almost every way possible.

Here Is What Happens When Each Myers-Briggs Personality Type Makes A New Year’s Resolution

“I resolve to make less than thirty new years resolutions this year, and keep at least two of them.”
Outcome: Stays up for fourteen straight days in an attempt to complete first resolution and subsequently ends up creating fifteen more.

Questions Answers
Can you expand a bit on why you were put in jail? The fine police officers of Cape Verde (understandably) didn't quite understand what the hell I was doing arriving in the country on a big wooden canoe with a bunch of Senegalese fishermen. I was an idiotic thing to do, there isn't a day that goes by that I don't kick myself for being such a fool. I was angry with Cape Verde for a time after that, but it was five years ago and I've mellowed in my old age. Like seriously? A WOODEN CANOE??
Total dick move.
Congo - that's not as justifiable, but I did lose my rag with the police chief (once I'd been arrested and taken to the police station in Brazzaville). I shouldn't have done that - I learnt an important lesson though... KEEP SMILING! Seriously. Could have saved me a good few days of sleeping on a concrete floor.
How were you able to finance your travels? Were you able to communicate with the locals when they couldn't speak English? Did you ever suffer from homesickness? And thank you in advance for answering my questions. I saved up, I got some money for the TV show I made for Lonely Planet (Link to - not in the UK? Use Hola) and towards the end of my journey, my family and friends chipped in to ensure I finished what I had started. The whole thing cost me around £27,000 over four years - just under £7,000 (US$10,000) a year.
Yeah, communication was never really a problem, at the end of the day you can just smile and point at stuff! I wish I had more of an aptitude for languages though. I've got a mate who speaks like 8 languages, he's like a wizard or something.
Homesickness no so much... with stuff like Skype and Facebook, home is never far away. But it IS good to be home (when I'm home!!).
Which country's currency did you find the coolest or most appealing? Zimbabwe had 50 billion dollar notes, which was crazy. The Queen is smiling on the money in Fiji. Eritrea and Guyana have really well designed banknotes. When I was in Libya, Gaddafi was on every note - on one of them he looks like he's forgotten his keys. I tend not to like plastic notes, but somewhere like Bangladesh it's preferable to fabric. I love the name "kwacha" for the money in Zambia and Malawi and "quetzal" for Guatemala. In Uzbekistan the biggest banknote was worth about 50 cents, you walk around with these massive wads of money like you're some ridiculous high-roller. In America they have "In God We Trust" in the UK we have Charles Darwin. That makes me smile.
Do you think you would have had a harder time if you were a woman, or would it have been less safe? I think it would be harder, but not impossible. Some of the greatest travellers of all time - Nelly Bly, Gertrude Bell, Annie Londonderry etc took on similar challenges, back when the world was a LOT more dangerous.
Staying safe includes following your intuition, always updating your Facebook or Twitter and having somebody waiting for you at your destination (CouchSurfing is great for that). You'll find that you'll rarely travel alone, there's often someone who'll make sure you get where you're supposed to go.
There's an incredible woman from Ghana who is attempting to go to every country. She's a mother of six. GO PRINCESS!! Link to
In some of the bigger countries (United States, Mexico, etc.) where did you go in each? Like did you just pick the most popular spot in each, or did you travel around? In the US I went to Florida, hung out in Fort Lauderdale, Miami and Key West for a few days, then after visiting Cuba I buzzed on up to New York. In Mexico I just travelled through really, only stopping at Cancun, Mexico City, Veracruz etc to get on a bus. This year I returned to Mexico and visited the Mayan sites of Tulum, Coba, Chichen Itza, Palenque amongst others.
In China I spent 7 days in Tibet, stayed in Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong. Australia I travelled up the coast from Melbourne to Townsville (via Fiji). I got loads more of Brazil and Russia to discover, I barely scratched the surface, same with Canada (although Halifax is a great little place).
How did this whole thing start? It all stemmed from my love of travel, which I've had since I was a kid. Before I embarked on the journey I had already been to about 70 countries in my life up until that point. I can't sing, I can't play a musical instrument, I can't run 100m in less than 10 seconds, but I am fairly gifted when it comes to getting around, sleeping in uncomfortable places, making myself understood, trying new things, putting myself out there... going to every country without flying seemed like something that was within my capabilities - I was kinda surprised nobody had done it before, to be honest.
Do you have that and can you share it with us? Getting on cargo ships is tricky, but with a bit of persistence you might get lucky. You need to find the shipping timetables online, find out who runs the line, get permission from the ship charterers (ie. Maersk, CMA-CGM, PIL), then get permission from the owners (usually a different company), then the local shipping agent, and finally the captain of the ship.
Also I remember (gawping at you/ your document ) you seemed to travel on cargo ships between places. How did you manage this? I'd get my friends in the UK to send emails on my behalf, sometimes following them up with phone calls. As I was going for a Guinness World Record, making the TV show for Lonely Planet and raising money for charity a lot of them really helped me out. I literally couldn't have done it without them.

Wow, impressive! Side note: I just saw on your Facebook that we have a mutual friend, how weird! Though we're both scouse so it's inevitable but still strange! Scousers get everywhere, we really do :D.
Gotta catch 'em all! :) YES!
What languages do you speak? What's the toughest region of the world for trying to get by just on English? I speak a little bit of French and a little bit of Spanish. I have to admit I'm not so good at languages. But I'm fairly good at making myself understood. Kinda. China used to be tricky, back when I first went there in 2002, but now - since the 2008 Olympics - a lot of the signage is in both Chinese characters and Roman letters, so it's a lot easier to ensure you're on the right bus. Russia's pretty tough still.
What is the most important thing you learned about yourself and is approximately 7 days per country enough to get a solid impression?? I learnt that I'm more capable than I give myself credit for.
And no, it's not. Even living here in Panama for the last 8 months I barely feel like I know the place!! You get an impression, and it's tremendously subjective. I guess it's a bit like a relationship, or friendship. Do you know people any better because you've known them for years? I'm not so sure... people can still surprise you, and so can countries!
Can I live with you? I am extremely nice, I love animals and cooking. Ha! You can surf my couch over on Jinja Island, Panama (look it up on Google Maps, CouchSurfing), but you'd have to be nice... and a bit crazy to live here!
Thats awesome, congrats. Sorry if I missed it, but did you spend as much time as possible in each country, or just go through them marathon style to check them off a list? It was fairly marathon style, but some places I hung around, waiting for visas or ships. Sometimes I'd stay a little longer than I really needed to... I occasionally found it hard to prise myself away. But, as I always say, these places aren't going anywhere and, who knows?, off the back of this thing I might get a TV show in which I can go back really explore these places without having to race through (or hold a video camera at arms length!).
Lebanese here. Did you like Lebanon? Plus Armenia, how was it? I did like Lebanon. I first went there in 1999, and to return there in 2010 was a real treat - you know why? THE FOOD!! Oh my god you guys have the BEST kebabs in the WORLD. DITTO ARMENIA (I really like kebabs. The ones you get in Turkmenistan suck balls). Both really beautiful countries, I so need to spend more time in both of them. I will. I'LL BE BACK!!
Any place you found was your favorite? Never going back to? Most beautiful? Can I live on your island? Difficult to say. I loved lots of places!! At the moment I'm most interested in returning to Iran. There's nowhere I wouldn't go back to. Awww come on! Anywhere, everywhere can be beautiful... just check out /EarthPorn/ !!! I have special affection for Palau in the Pacific though! No you can't live there, but you can come visit for free via the CouchSurfing network!
What's the process of getting your own private island? That's my plan if I win the lottery one day. I won a Samsung "Survivor" style competition. It came down to a public vote and I won. I chose Panama because I wanted to spend more time in Central America (I rattled through here on my expedition) and it's nice and central (ha!) for my friends coming to visit from Europe, the States, South America, South Africa, Australia etc. I also wanted to learn Spanish. Still working on the Spanish!!
Did you fall ill of any diseases while doing this and if so which ones? No! Remarkably enough. They should so make SUPER-SOLDIERS from my DNA. Dunno if they'd be any good at fighting though, probs just end up down the pub.
I had all the vaccinations I could possibly have before I left the UK, I took anti-malarial tablets in malarious areas, tried not to drink the tap water and tried to stick to hot food. Plus a fair dollop of luck!

Hey Beast -- this is fun. Who invented cereal? As in Breakfast Cereal? Because cereal crops have been around since before time. Do you go for Kellogg? I go for Kellogg.
On the US version of the show, it seems like you miss some culture questions that would be fairly simple for US citizens. I guess I'm remembering one question about Baskin-Robbins and one question about baseball stadiums. My question is how do you go about studying or preparing for these sorts of US-specific questions be they about culture or local geography or other things you wouldn't necessarily be as exposed to across the pond? Well the Baseball was annoying because I watch a lot of baseball and I didn't remember the Marlins incident but for a Brit, I watch quite a bit of American sports.
But that is going to be a trap, the questions you have to live in the states to have a reasonable chance of answering. The more time I spend in the states, the better I am at answering them. When I travel around, I ask questions, like finding out that IHOP stood for International House of Pancakes, and Wendy's has square pancakes in their burgers, the little stuff you only pick up living in a place.
But when it comes to the rest of the world, I'm far better at international trivia than most Americans.

Are you the Mark Labbett who played and wrote about play-by-mail games about a decade or so ago? No, I did not write a book, but I did write some play-by-mail articles, I did do a few 10-15 years ago. I was always very keen on all of these things. Things like Facebook games are so much better these days.
Do you still play play-by-mail games? The answer is pretty much all of them. Board games are nice when you can get your family together to go see them. Sports - I'm 48 now, so my competitive playing days are over, but I still like to get the occasional game of cricket going, basketball would be a bit of a tremble. I must confess I just bought the latest Grand Theft Auto and have enjoyed tearing up the streets. And crosswords and puzzles, I get bored with them easily.
Whether you do or not, what games do you play outside quizzes - board games, computer games, physical sports, puzzles and so on? Link to
Hey Mark big fan, can you say hello to the Quinn family for me? They love the show. Anyways, what is the typical daily routine for a Chaser? Get up, record one of three shows (we get one each), win. Go back to the hotel room, and then party like it's 1999.
Who of the other Chasers would you not want to face if you were a contestant? And who would you fancy your chances against? None of them, I can beat them all. And I'm sure they'd say the same answer about me. When he's at his best, Paul Sinner is apart from me the fastest and he probably has the widest range of knowledge, but he has gaps in his knowledge. As a second generation immigrant, he gets called out on questions that he missed in his education. Old English phrases will catch him out, whereas the kind of phrase my granny would have told me, I would know it, but when he is on his top game his top to beat. For consistency, it's Ann - she's nothing spectacular, she is almost like a machine, and she rarely makes errors. She has the best win / loss ratio but she doesn't have the gear to get out of trouble. She grinds up good wins but she grinds them out, versus Paul and I can do the "how the HELL did you do that? 8 correct answers in 26 seconds"

How did you get chosen to be on the show? did you have to answer a series of questions or were you scouted? The good news is I was scouted. When they were looking for people to be Chasers, they started with a show called Mastermind which was our most prestigious show traditionally in Britain for trivia. A lot of them are quite bright, but they are not the most interesting people in the world. So they asked "Who's the most interesting person you know who could be slightly intimidating?" and here's the thing, that sense of theatricality - most of these guys went along to the interview in smart outfits, and I went in my MASSIVE soviety greatcoat with my coat sweeping behind me like Darth Vader, and most importantly, I could answer the questions.
Link to
Have you ever liked a contestant so much that you have purposely got questions wrong so they win ? Because sometimes the chasers get really obvious questions wrong in the final chase. No! Let me go further. I have never thrown so much as a question, let alone a show, and I'm totally confident my colleagues would say the same. We get flustered, we make mistakes, every once in a while we do something so unbelievably stupid. I had one the other day, I don't know if it's a form of Tourettes or something - "How many S's in Assassination"?
I work out there's 4. I then say 6.
And I know people might not believe this, but I thought 4, I said 6. It is not my job to decide who wins on that show, it's the contestant selectors and the producers, who am I to have the arrogance to decide who wins and loses on that show? The only fair way is to play as hard as I can on every show. If my beloved nieces were on that show, I'd play hard against them too. A few years ago, there was a British contestant who came on with an unbelievable sob story. I caught the team with 5 seconds to go, and afterwards, as I"m walking out, he's having a cigarette, and we have a brief chat, he turns around and says "I thought with my story you'd let me win." Nobody checks people for their backstories. And I can understand if people tell great tales to try to get through the contestant process. I'm a moral vacuum when we are playing. If you could piggy back on the signal in my brain. all you would hear me is thinking "What is the question Brooke just asked me, and what is the answer." And then afterwards, normal human being comes back. If we start playing favorites, etcetera, the show wouldn't last very long. What Joe Public picks up on is that we love playing. If you win by playing well, well-played, have the money, but I never want them to win because I've screwed up.

How's Anne Hegerty doing? She's the best win / loss ratio on the British version.
(We're trying to get started, but as it's live video, it's going to be a little bit)
Do you prefer recording the UK version or the US version? I much prefer the US version. And my reasons why are: firstly, I like the audience. They bring a real buzz to the show, and the way they are arranged around the set gives it a gladiatorial feel. A bit of a bear pit, but it's fun. And the contestants are a higher standard - and before I get crucified by my compatriots, I'm playing free players, they are ALL good and good players make for great shows. While it's nice to win an easy game, you want a competitive match. This second series that we are showing (obviously I can't reveal the results) but SO many of them could have beaten me, and could be beaten. A guy named Chad was in charge of contestant selection, and it was great fun, win or lose. And I really can recommend it. We got the level of the contestant team perfectly. Whether they or I won, it was a good match.

Hi Mark! Huge fan of The Chase UK. One of the best, most simple game shows around. No, I have not come across a contestant. And let me explain why. In the British version, no, there are people who are quite good, but none that have made me go "wow." In America, the guy who beat me on season 1, Raj, was one of the top players in the world, but he wouldn't be a Chaser because his personality was not strong enough. He's find playing for himself, but obviously there's a mental side to this as well. Plus you have to be interesting. Some could be in a few year's time.
Have you ever come across a contestant that you genuinely thought "Wow, he could be a chaser"? And just a bit. With the famous "Fanny Chmelar" question, I was there in the studios and I think we couldn't stop laughing for about 10 minutes. Every once in a while, a good one gets through. There's a bird in New Zealand called a "rough-faced shag" and I think that's going to come up at some point, and people might snigger.
How long does it usually take Bradley to stop laughing when there's a slight amount of innuendo? Do they have to do a re-take? Link to
Whats tv? I'm assuming you mean TV? Or transvestitism? It's a system for passing images across a great series of distances.

Who won the FA Cup in 1899? I don't know! Those are what I call the "list-learner" type question. To some extent, who cares, unless you're a fan of the team.
I will go for Aston Villa.
(and these are the kind of questions that if you're hosting a trivia night, I would avoid for the following reasons: unless it's the local team, it's a charter for cheats because they will get their smart phone out and look up the answer, for the rest of the population it's a blind guess. If you're going to ask a specific question for a year there's got to be a bit of something relevant about it - so for example, the 100 meter winner in Seoul in 1988, "who won after Ben Johnson was disqualified" - that was a big event. Who won something in such and such a year is such a bland, boring question)

Is there any question that stands out as being the toughest one you've ever been asked? Did you get it right? The toughest question I've ever been asked was how far can a mole dig in 24 hours? There was quite a bit of.
We went for 50 yards and the correct answer was 100. We said the only way that could be true would be if the mole were called Usain.
Anyone can ask a question that is virtually unanswerable. It's whether you can prove the question right... And getting my question wrong on "Who wants to be a Millionaire" for 64,000 pounds hurt.

Do you know the term for obsessive nose-picking? No I don't. I know that epistaxis is nose bleeding... traditionally, rhinoplasty is nose surgery, and rhinitis is sinus congestion... what would be picking? Rhinifidilitis? You get half the way, but I think I've lost this one.
It's nearly always a Greek term. A knowledge of Greek and Latin goes a long way in competitive quizzing.

Hugh Heffner founded Playboy with thanks in part to a loan from whom? Interesting...
I haven't a clue, I suspect it's some big movie star. But I'd be interested to know who did.
Link to
Funnily enough, the answer was his mother! Mind you, he had so many investors that one of them probably was a movie star... PS, massive fan (from a maths first year student.) Hahaha! There's a good question there.
How do you consume your knowledge? By living life, by wandring round making notes, so if I'm the London Tube, making note of the new plays, books, having the TV on in the background to clock the adverts, reading things online, the Huffington Post is a great source of primary news. Just paying attention to things I guess.

My question for the Beast! Who is the only character to appear in all of the Monty Python Movies? I'm going to go for God. Although would you count him as a character? I'd like to find the answer to that. It's worth knowing, and passes the interest test, which passes the test for a good quiz.
Link to
God it is! Thought I had you there for a sec, thanks for the compliment on my question ;) Watching along and having a great time. I'm going to nick that question. poor artists borrow, the great ones steal. :)
Hey Mark, how did you get into quizzing? Have you always had a passion for knowledge, or known you had a good memory, or was it something that came later in life? I've never understood how someone makes a career out of quizzing. I've been lucky, I've been interested in quizzes or gameshows since I can remember, and as you get older.
I started playing quizzing seriously about 25 years ago, when I found I could make a pretty good living from Quiz Machines in Britain. It's paid for every car I've ever had. And it's always just been a bit of fun, but 4 years ago the Chase came along, and I've been a pro in the last 2 years. So who knew? And now you can make a living at it. I know there are many countries in the world which are considering running their version of the Chase, and they are looking for Chasers. So my advice to those people are: be INTERESTING. Have something visually interesting about you, or have a good persona, or if you can't have a good persona, fake it. You need to be interesting and put on a show.

What does the candy brand M&M stand for? I remember seeing the film "61" and there is some suggestion that is Mantle & Maris but - I don't know.

What is it like being the only Chaser (on the US version) as opposed to 1 of 4 (in the UK version)? Also as all of you have pretty much been on the quiz circuit, did you know any of the other Chasers before beginning work on The Chase? I love being the only Chaser! Both from the point of view of ego, and point of finances, because you're doing more shows. The British version you have a sense of camaraderie, when one of us has a bad game, we're all good we just have bad games. We have to have more than one Chaser on the British version because of the number of shows that we do. I really like that the American version you know you're doing it, it's kind of nice to have all the press and promotional work, on the British version we don't do anything like this, however with ITV we have limited resources. We're averaging 3 million viewers on what used to be the Graveyard slot for ITV, day in, day out. And gameshows are very cheap and easy to make, and we have the strongest endgame on a quiz show.

Yo beastman, if i don't like nude bodies, what's my phobia called?? Gymnophobia.

Hey Mark, massive fan of The Chase UK here, easily one of the best shows around at the minute. Loved the Christmas version you guys showed last year, I assume you've got something similar planned for next month? They were thinking about it, not sure if it's going to happen now because last year we did it as part of a run of other shows so it was tacking it onto an existing set. Not sure, but they are looking at it, maybe. Link to
1) do you ever go for a pint with the contestants after the show? 1) No, we haven't got time. It's a shame really. On the British version, it really is a conveyer belt, we are doing 3 shows a day, you are lucky if you even see them afterwards, and in fairness if you've ever been on a contestant research team, those boys and girls work 18 hours days, the last thing they want to do is you shooting the breeze with their contestants. The American one is not quite as rushed. I always meet the American contestants.
Why do men have nipples? Basic DNA genetics. Men have nipples, they just don't have mammary glands. That's why they can't produce milk.
Has there ever been a point where you have been asked to slow down your answers on the show, perhaps to make it seem more dramatic for tv or simply because nobody has won in a long time? No. Again, wouldn't do it. We're there to win.
What would be your wrestling name? Well I guess "The Beast" but I know some of the people who are trying to rebrand Rob Terry as the Beast.
I like "The Teacher" or "The Educator" or "The Principle." This is my schoolyard and I'm the biggest dog.
Link to
There's quite a bit of influence of the monster heel in the character you play on the show and you're known to be a wrestling fan. Who is your favourite monster heel of all time? If the answer is different, which one has had the greatest influence on your character on The Chase? Monster Heel, yeah - I always say the secret is that I'm actually borrowing from a biography I saw on Stone Cold Steve Austin. I forget who said this but "The best wrestlers are themselves with the volume turned up." I'm myself, with the volume tuned up. So in real life, you might think something about somebody, but you wouldn't say it. Well on the show, I think it, and providing it's clean language, I say it. You're still you, but with a bit more exuberance. I might think that someone is a beeping beep, but I'll say "that's a bit weak, wasn't it" or if I'm feeling really cheeky, I'll say "meow."

Alright, here's my question for the Beast. The Slaughter Stone is an important piece of which monument? I'm guessing it's Stonehenge. But it's a guess.
Link to
Damn, he really is good! Yep, Stonehenge was correct :) I used to live about 8 miles away from Stonehenge.
I'm addicted to the show, try and watch it every day. Would love to go on but I have a recurring dream of getting torn apart by the Governess. Anyway, what would you consider your strongest and weakest subjects? My strongest subject is sport, science, history, geography, literature, everything basically.
I have no weaknesses and I wouldn't give it away even if I did. People often ask me "how did you get on the show" and i always reply that if you want to get on the show, the last person you should speak to is the Chaser - because if I know you too well it' makes it difficult to get on. We've got to be Caesar's Wife in this regard - above suspicion and above reproach. So if someone tells me they are on the show, I report all the conversations to the S&P guys so they know.

If you was to be on mastermind what would your specialist category be? Oooh, that's a tough one, so much as I love the Simpsons that is pretty big. I would probably go for Flags of the World or something like the Superbowls, because there have only been like, 46 of them now? You try to make the subject as relatively small as possible.

Maths question. If you have seven coloured counters, how many different combinations of three counters are possible to have? 35 possible combinations.
Link to
Hey Mark. Love the show and have nothing but the highest respect for you. Outside of The Chase, what is your favorite game show/quiz show? My favorite traditionally is "15 to 1" because it was what we would call a pure quiz show, very few gimmicks you just got on and played the game. The luck element (as all quiz shows have to have) was there but it was very fair. 15 players started, you drew randomly for position which was a nice tough, and if the right question came when it was your turn, good, if the wrong question came you were in trouble, but at least it was fair in its randomness.
"Duel" is another show that I really liked which I thought had a wonderful format, in that to set the thing up you had 10 counters each which you got to use up, and each question was a multiple choice question with up to 4 answers, and you could put a counter to cover as many answers as you want, and if you got it right you got that one back, and any counters on a wrong answer got lost, but if you failed to cover the right answer you were instantly out, so it was a lovely test of your confidence as well as your strategy. It did okay but only got one series, which was a shame as it was a lovely show.
And there was a show called "Pokerface" that had a million-pound prize. And the winner of season 1, a girl called Sarah Lang from Wales, she did it by absolutely bluffing the contestants. She told people she had come in second in the European Quiz Championships, in Estonia, and I knew she was absolutely lying, but she scared everyone else and they all panicked and folded and let her win, and she won a million pounds as a result of it, which is tax-free winnings in the UK.
So sometimes it's not about being the smartest, it's about being the bravest or the luckiest. And some days it's your lucky day.

Hey beast! can't wait for the show tomorrow! trivia question: what does HTML stand for? Hypertext Markup Language.

How many people (counting pilots and guest hosts) have hosted the American version of Wheel of Fortune for at least one complete episode? I'd guess 7 but it's a blind guess. Admittedly, if you asked it the other way around, asking if how many people have hosted University Challenge (it's two) or Mastermind in the UK (three) over the years, I'd know those sort of things, but it's one of those things where you've had to be watching it for 30-40 years.

Good evening! My question is, what do you call a group of otters? I'd go for a holt of otters. I'm not right though. I know there's a crash of rhinos, and a leap of leopards, and a pride of lions, and an ambush of tigers.

Hi Mark, big fan of the chase (UK version) and was wondering how much say the chasers have over the offers or if the producers just tell you what to say. Also, because there aren't enough rugby league questions in TV quizzes, which team won 3 super league grand finals in a row in 2007, 2008, and 2009? Oh I hate Rugby League, I'm a Rugby Union Man.
For the Chase, it's a collaborative effort, and I can't go into more detail than that. Obviously like all shows there are obviously budgetary constraints, but that's all the detail I can go into here.
3 straight super league grand finals in a row. St. Helen's is my answer. Possible but I don't know.
Link to
Not a bad guess - St Helens were actually the losing side on all three occasions. Correct answer was Leeds Rhinos. One to reddit! I'm sorry, I apologize to Leeds fans.
Have you ever made one of your students cry? Probably. I'm not going to say any more than that. But not deliberately.

Hiram Maxim's self-cocking mousetrap he made in his teens inspired what later invention? Well he did the Maxim Machine gun, so I'm guessing that?

What is the English translation of the latin phrase 'Floreat Exon'? Well "Floreat Eton" means "Farewell to Eton" which were the last words of Captain Hook. So I know that "exon" is the shortened / Latinized word for Exeter, as in the City in Devon, so I am going to go for "Farewell to Exeter."
Sometimes it's difficult to pin down one answer to a question, when you're writing them! Especially with science, especially with questions short enough to ask in a quiz round.
Link to
Mark, it's your alma mater! Let Exeter (college) flourish! Yup, my Alma Mater.
What is your shoe size? I reckon it MUST be a UK 14 at the very least. No, it's only 11 or 12, thank goodness for that. My little brother has size 14s and they are very difficult to get shoes for.
Link to
Why is wisconsin the best state to live in? Because they're Cheeseheads and they have the Green Bay Packers!

Mark! I played a run-through game against you before the start of season 2 (it was the day you and Brooke snapped a photo with the Hoff). You were nursing some sort of foot injury. What happened to your foot and are you doing ok? Thanks for making me feel dumb that day with your great knowledge. Haha! Oh it's fine now, I just caught my leg on something and had a bandage. It's fine now.
What was the first movie with sound? Al Jolson, the Jazz Singer.

Who is the first recorded American serial killer defined as "a person who has murdered three or more people over a period of more than a month"? Chalk this one up to reddit, let's see what the answer is.
Link to
The answer is Herman Webster Mudgett better known as H. H. Holmes. From 1888 - 1894 he killed somewhere from 9 - 200 people, 27 he admitted to, 9 of which were confirmed by police. His story is actually really interesting if you look it up a bit more. Never heard of him but thank you for that!
Where do I start gathering all this knowledge? Books? The internet? Edit: Do you know that the microphone quality is pretty bad? Whatever works for you. There are now 4 Chasers in Russia. There is one Chaser in Germany. There are 4 in Britain. There are quite a few others in Europe. We all have different ways of picking up knowledge. Paul Sinha has a very different way of picking up knowledge than I do. Shawn Wallace reads old quiz books. I play quizzes, as many as I can find. And as I said, my main way of learning is reading a good paper, or when I am walking the streets of NY, LA, London, I will make a note of it, so I'm the great sponge. But it's different for different people. But you do have to put the effort in. Nobody's born a great quizzer. The rewards are great if you get good enough.
Question: Which fruit is the main ingredient in the Spanish drink Mosto? Avocado (let's be silly).
Link to
Now I really want an avocado flavoured drink. THANKS MARK. The answer was Grape, by the way. Also, thanks for AMAing, this is real fun.~ Fair enough!
Victoria Falls lies on the border of two countries which begin with what same letter? Zed. Zambia and Zimbabwe.
(It's an easy trivia question, but it cost me a probable £10,000 in a one question shoot-out against the Sinhaman on a recent edition of the UK show!) Link to
Is there an incentive (monetary or otherwise) for the Chaser to beat the contestants or is it all for the glory? The contents of my contract are between me and GSN. So as diplomatically as possible, not your business. I don't ask people what contracts they are under.
As for trivia, Carl McCoid holds the record for having the most tattoos of which popstar? Michael Jackson? I really don't care. Does not pass the interest test for me.
What's been the best invention in your lifetime? That's a really good question. What's changed the world in small but significant ways? You can argue is it things like dwarf wheat staving off potential starvation? The improvement in agribusiness is staggering. I think I'd have to go with the smartphone. For Star Trek, the communicator looked AMAZING, and I remember the first mobile phones, they were huge, the size of a brick. And you look now, but the vast majority of the population carries a smartphone, it's changed your behavior a little bit because everyone has a camera phone. I didn't get a contract phone until a few years ago, but I literally just got a smartphone for America. I was trying to text on an old phone, and it was so difficult. You look at old TV shows, and the plots "I have to get to a phone line." It's changed everything.
Link to
Is it staged? Come on you can share, we won't tell anyone. I can understand why people ask, because there have been problems on both side of the pond with quiz shows and TV fakery, but it's not faked in any way, shape or form. We are that damn good, we have independent adjudicators, but I can understand people's skepticism. But if you WAS faked, you wouldn't have someone like me doing the job, you'd have a much better, smarter looking actor doing the job. If you choose to believe that any tv game show or trivia show is faked, you've made your mind up, so please don't watch. Save yourself the aggravation. If you think it's fake, why are you even bothering watching it. We couldn't have it any other way.
