I saw Ptee in a bar last night. He didn't see me though. Crap bar too.

Ah Dave, as a Birkbeck student I have to go to the Birkbeck bar occasionally.

Great game of football on the TV though. I know we should support our boys in Europe but its a long time since Chelsea could ever be considered as OUR boys. We probably have more in common with the Vikings.

Pete (Pete), Friday, 4 October 2002 10:58 (nineteen years ago) link

I know. Magic wasn't it. This made me laff lots this morning...

Dave B (daveb), Friday, 4 October 2002 11:19 (nineteen years ago) link

Its worth leaving that going in another window abnd waiting for it to get to £10000000. You should have tipped me the wink Dave - there's nothing that makes you look more popular around your coursemates than random punter attack (they don't get more random than the President of Birkbeck SU mind and he homed in on me). Nice to see they left the screen on for the Chuck Norris actioner GOod Guys Wear Black too - Anne Archers finest hour.

Pete (Pete), Friday, 4 October 2002 12:22 (nineteen years ago) link

i already did this thread for when i was on the bus in shoreditch and saw graham wandering around looking lost. i saw chris brassica in the embassy bar the other week too...

gareth (gareth), Friday, 4 October 2002 23:25 (nineteen years ago) link

Ah this reminds me. Anna, were you walking through Clapham Junctuion last Friday?

RickyT (RickyT), Saturday, 5 October 2002 09:06 (nineteen years ago) link

i saw a picture of the lollies the other day.
does that count as random sighting?

joan vich (joan vich), Saturday, 5 October 2002 09:47 (nineteen years ago) link

Yes, I was. I never go there, but it was my friend Dan's birthday, so I was on the way to his house. Did I look lost and stressed with phone clamped to ear?

Anna (Anna), Saturday, 5 October 2002 16:25 (nineteen years ago) link

oh yes, and i saw rickyt in belsize park

gareth (gareth), Saturday, 5 October 2002 18:32 (nineteen years ago) link

ptee got on the bus we were going home on last nite, but as he only lives up the road this is hardly entirely random...

i did bump into sam norman (ex-s*n*sterine) at the rachel stamp gig last nite (RoX0r!!), which was particularly random but as he's not an ilxer i'm not sure if it counts...

CarsmileSteve (CarsmileSteve), Sunday, 6 October 2002 12:28 (nineteen years ago) link

I grabbed an old forgotten Fierce Panda sampler out the other day (because I remember it had a Chris T-T track on it) and found that it had Tompaulin on it, does that count?

Dom Passantino (Dom Passantino), Sunday, 6 October 2002 12:29 (nineteen years ago) link

North America is bigger but I thought I saw Kerry Dymaxion sitting out on State Street one morning a few weeks ago.

At Earls Court station, Tuesday, a 40 something woman that looked exactly like DG from accross the platform.

At Paddington Station, also Tuesday, a 40 something woman that looked just like Carsmile.

In Tesco, Manchester, just now, a woman that looked just like Tom, sans beard, but with HAIR GROWN LONG JUST LIKE NED. A more terrifying sight I hope I never see.

Graham (graham), Friday, 10 January 2003 18:49 (nineteen years ago) link

Somebody better start Photoshopping.

Ned Raggett (Ned), Friday, 10 January 2003 20:46 (nineteen years ago) link

On 25 St. and 6th Tim H. and I ran into Yanc3y, roommates and friend.

Yanc3y was carrying a painting he had bought at one of the flea markets. It looked like a portrait of a sad clown without the clown make-up.

Starry were you at London Bridge tube station this morning?

Sam (chirombo), Wednesday, 16 April 2003 14:55 (eighteen years ago) link

To Charles, that ILX-lurker i randomly met in Sydney: Chris Wu has your jacket. I was thinking of jizzing in the pockets, but I didn't.

phil-two (phil-two), Wednesday, 16 April 2003 14:59 (eighteen years ago) link

oh god, Chr1s Wu. you should have stolen one of *his* jackets and jizzed in it

electric sound of jim (electricsound), Wednesday, 16 April 2003 22:41 (eighteen years ago) link

I ran into trife today!

James Blount (James Blount), Thursday, 17 April 2003 01:01 (eighteen years ago) link

any broken bones?

James Blount (James Blount), Thursday, 17 April 2003 01:04 (eighteen years ago) link

oh god, Chr1s Wu. you should have stolen one of *his* jackets and jizzed in it

what, you dont like him?

phil-two (phil-two), Thursday, 17 April 2003 05:37 (eighteen years ago) link

i don't dislike him, he's just, uh, a little unreliable with the things he promises. plus he's an ex of my best friend's girlfriend.

electric sound of jim (electricsound), Thursday, 17 April 2003 05:42 (eighteen years ago) link

wait... you mean bonnie & oscar?

phil-two (phil-two), Thursday, 17 April 2003 05:45 (eighteen years ago) link

no, kate and mark. ooh, bonnie! i had a crush on her

electric sound of jim (electricsound), Thursday, 17 April 2003 05:47 (eighteen years ago) link

Oh, so two random ILX sightings:

1. I'm in Sydney at a bar, and I'm just introduced to a friend of a friend, and he goes... "Phil? From New York? I've been reading your posts on ILE!" [what the fuck??]

2. That SAME day at the same bar, this other friend of a friend who I've met a few times and hung out with a few times turns out to be Charlie No.4 from ILM... craziness. insanity.

phil-two (phil-two), Thursday, 17 April 2003 05:48 (eighteen years ago) link

Sam - yes I was! Looking horrifically in a state? Pink tshirt, brown skirt and black trousers? *waves*!

I didn't see you, but I did randomly see a goth that I met last Saturday night (I did not say hello cos I've forgotten his name).

Sarah (starry), Thursday, 17 April 2003 11:47 (eighteen years ago) link

Just say "Sebastian" -- that's usually a boy goth's name.

Ned Raggett (Ned), Thursday, 17 April 2003 12:15 (eighteen years ago) link

I see Cprek pretty often (almost as often as I listen to his radio show), but I've known Cprek since long before ILX even EXISTED.

I saw a sign on a church that said "BINGO" and I thought of Chris V.

nickalicious (nickalicious), Thursday, 17 April 2003 14:06 (eighteen years ago) link

I am suspicious at how rarely I spot any ILXers. There are loads here in london, and apart from Pete once I have never bumped into any of them. What are the odds? I mean, I've only spent like four or five days in Paris, and I ran into a pal there (I've mentioned this before - it was comic writer Grant Morrison). I think they are hiding from me.

Martin Skidmore (Martin Skidmore), Thursday, 17 April 2003 17:25 (eighteen years ago) link

I saw Carsmile Steve from the window of the 41 bus. He was wearing a long blue coat and looked very dashing.

toby (tsg20), Thursday, 17 April 2003 19:19 (eighteen years ago) link

Sorry, cookies, that would have been me, Anna, who saw Steve.

Matos in Starbucks
Matos in Kim's
Matos at the Voice (not so random)

Mary (Mary), Thursday, 17 April 2003 21:53 (eighteen years ago) link

Ha! One of my friends told me she thought she saw Matos at a bar in TriBeCa a couple weeks ago. He's everywhere!

felicity (felicity), Thursday, 17 April 2003 22:00 (eighteen years ago) link

i saw tim f at his work (so i guess it wasnt that random), and keith mcd at the buzzcocks show a while ago

minna (minna), Friday, 18 April 2003 02:52 (eighteen years ago) link

Oh Andy B. on Bowery.

Mary (Mary), Friday, 18 April 2003 05:15 (eighteen years ago) link

I was walking down 7th Street the other day and I heard someone yell my name. It was Matos. I felt like such a celebrity.

hstencil, Friday, 18 April 2003 05:36 (eighteen years ago) link

The East Village is teeming with IlXoRs!

Mary (Mary), Friday, 18 April 2003 06:46 (eighteen years ago) link

Julio pointed out Dave Q to me on Angel tube station last night.

Andrew L (Andrew L), Friday, 18 April 2003 06:49 (eighteen years ago) link

what I wanna know is: did matos shout out "HSTENCIL! I blame you!"?

haha amazing this got revived.

Julio Desouza (jdesouza), Friday, 18 April 2003 09:31 (eighteen years ago) link

Downtown is teeming with Matos!

felicity (felicity), Friday, 18 April 2003 15:06 (eighteen years ago) link

No, he shouted out my real name, which was prolly even more disturbing.

hstencil, Friday, 18 April 2003 16:38 (eighteen years ago) link

and was it out of a car h?

Julio Desouza (jdesouza), Friday, 18 April 2003 17:18 (eighteen years ago) link

it was out of a LIMO, plebes

Merdeyeux, Monday, 19 May 2014 00:13 (seven years ago) link

i was there myself, because i turned up not knowing that my friends had gone to the OTHER craft beer co. pub down the road and i bought a drink before realising this.

Riffle through several WDYLL threads and the idea of ilxors having beards will seem as natural as their having personality disorders.

A couple of months ago I was at the pub to meet edwardo for music trivia, but he texted to say he was ill and wouldn't make it. However! old-time ilx0r colin s. barrow was having a few with his good lady wife before leaving for dinner, and they stuck around to play the first half.

Doubtless they are toss. (sic), Wednesday, 17 May 2017 14:58 (four years ago) link

(this was just two weeks after I'd seen colin at all for the first time in almost five years, supporting S3vered H3ads at the next pub down the road)
