Who were the five guys who were in love with Luna?

Dom Passantino, Saturday, 23 February 2008 16:58 (eleven years ago) Permalink

That would be mean to answer.

What is the thirty-nine steps?

Noodle Vague, Saturday, 23 February 2008 17:03 (eleven years ago) Permalink

The five guys answer was emailed to you. Thanks, Dom. You're a great poster and a important part of THE HISTORY OF ILX. ;-)

Mr. ILX, Saturday, 23 February 2008 17:03 (eleven years ago) Permalink

The Thirty-nine Steps is an adventure novel by the Scottish author John Buchan, first published in 1915 by William Blackwood and Sons, Edinburgh. It is the first of five novels featuring Richard Hannay, an all-action hero with a stiff upper lip and a miraculous habit of getting himself out of sticky situations.

The novel formed the basis for a number of film adaptations, notably Alfred Hitchcock's 1935 adaptation The 39 Steps, a 1959 colour remake and a more authentic 1978 version.

Why was "Can't Hardly Wait" kept off _Tim_, re-recorded, and stuck on the next album instead?

Which much-loved ILXors have their own "BAN ________" threads?

Noodle Vague, Saturday, 23 February 2008 17:07 (eleven years ago) Permalink

Kingfish: Your question has nothing to do with ILX.

NV: You question can be answered by simply using the SEARCH link at the top of this page.

Mr. ILX, Saturday, 23 February 2008 17:09 (eleven years ago) Permalink

If you know everything about ILX how come you don't know the search function sucks?

I had no problem finding the "BAN_____" threads using the sucky search function though, NV.

DG, Saturday, 23 February 2008 17:22 (eleven years ago) Permalink

I think it "Songs about quitting your job" but please correct me if I am wrong, DG.

Mr. ILX, Saturday, 23 February 2008 17:24 (eleven years ago) Permalink

it was like 'welcome to ile' or something but i can't find it

second was 'you and your blog'

DG, Saturday, 23 February 2008 17:25 (eleven years ago) Permalink

"Correct me if I am wrong"? whatta lolthority

Rock Hardy, Saturday, 23 February 2008 17:26 (eleven years ago) Permalink

ILM was before ILE so it couldn't have been "Welcome to ILE."

Mr. ILX, Saturday, 23 February 2008 17:27 (eleven years ago) Permalink

I thought it was something about indie rock, an response to an FT article by Tom. I feel somewhat sure that it wasn't "songs about quitting your job" but I could be wrong.
