It was nice to meet some of the Londoners who come here to my leetle website today. I ate vegan bangers and mash as well. Whoever invented bangers, I believe it was Nigel Banger, must be turning over in his grave. I also poured coffee on my teabag. I'm very amateur when it comes to being a British person.

Hey Jade! You've just got to get that British accent working for you and you'll be alright.

Daniellie-Butt said...

lol smooth exlax...with the coffee, i mean. j/m lol hope u had fun

UserCurrentlyUnavailabl said...

Nice.

Girls Don't Cry said...

Hey, if it makes you feel any better, I've totally poured coffee on my teabag before too. Then I threw a fit because I really loathe coffee. And it was a chai teabag too...I nearly cried.

Okay...I DID cry...but just a little...

...Fine. I freakin' bawled my head off, okay???

UserCurrentlyUnavailabl said...

Wait. Was that all I said?
Well, I REALLY meant to say that it's nice you're amateur because I am too!
So, good job Jade ans I'll see you on tour.<3

Pyrophoenix said...

lol! Will be fun to see you with the british accent on stage after tomorrow!
That remind me something. What did you said on stage in Berlin after you passed your head only for the "encore"? No one did understood? :S

veiled_static said...

tea and coffee? never had them together, but they taste delicious seperately, and therefore must also be drinkable together. what the hell is a "banger"?

shanagdi said...

After seeing the video for Silver & Cold, I thought you (& the rest of the boys) were British or at least European. I was still in a chemo haze at that time.

Sounds like you are having fun. Drink tea, it is yummy.

bobbyfasthands said...

HAHAHAHA

John said...

Thanks for having us!

Sheila Take A Bow said...

That's the neatest thing I've seen/read all week!

Tea + Coffee = ?

Girls Don't Cry said...

Oh, Jade! You probably won't see this, but I feel inclined to tell you anyway!

So I read your interview about loyalty of fans and how you, as a band, don't care, exactly, what people think of your music. I just wanted to say that I'm so happy for all of you and your wisdom. I'm very excited for you, and I know you're about to become very prominent in the music world. Just know that you will always have so many fans that really do appreciate your music for what it is and not for what people make it to be. Thank you for being such a wonderful, positive influence in my life. And no matter what, never forget or give up, though I know you won't.

Andy said...

Coffee + tea = bad.

Infact coffee tastes aweful. Only drink tea, herbal tea.

I plan on going over to good old Britian soon, in September.

Oh, btw the Smith is awesome (although you already know that). He's my favorite member of AFI.

Jessi said...

Good Job. I would have done the same thing. But, I don't really like tea, so I guess I wouldn't be making it would I?

Bandito said...

One time, while attemting to drink it, I poured a bunch of Pepsi on my pants. It sucked.
Apparently I havent quite got the hang of not being an idiot.

IAMSPARTACUS [DF] said...

UGH you came to the WRONG London. Ontario is where its at. We have bibs too. <333

Fluffo said...

Oh. I did well in England.

rockstar's girl! said...

teehehee aww, that sucks about the coffee- tea bag incident. i've done it before, and i just laughed. im jealous that you're in london...psh!

Thorb said...

vegan banger

stella said...

Sucks. Tea and coffee just don't get along. I always get confused about which one tastes better with cream, and which one tastes better with milk. But tea > coffee, hands down.
Tips- Post more tour videos. :)

WendyWearsBlack said...

Does that make it teaffee or coftea? Maybe you've invented a new beverage sensation?

Miss Lead said...

eww...bangers and mash is gross! and so is coffee....But somehow you've made me start craving eggrolls and rice again...odd!

i wonder if the chinese shop down the street is still open?

my.cure said...

aww, still sounds like fun...

Toby said...

You need to teabag someone.

Do it.

Now.

Desert Queen said...

Hahahaha. Being an amateur British person is a hard job, you know. I tried my British accent when I was there. I failed.

said...

Ha, I share your British retardation, Jade.

I lived with a British family for about a year, and they never let me forget the time I tried to eat shepards pie with bbq sauce.

Ulises said...

Hey!! i hope u doing well! just wanted to say hi and about your other post regarding the Adidas Campus, i know how u feel cause i used that model as well and noticed a while ago that my store only had them in navy and never saw them again in black... but why dont u start using Adidas Gazelle instead of Campus? they´re almost the same except that the Gazelles´s sole is green as well as the adidas retro logo...

Cucumber said...

Bangers and mash...

Sounds like a sex position to me.

Amanda said...

Wait a second- how do you eat vegan sausage?!


That's just weird.

Helen said...

To be a real Brit you have queue up all day in the rain. As I shall be doing in a couple of days time, outside the Electric Ballroom, heh. (Ok, so it might not be raining, but we Brits are also eternal pessimists and judging by the weather in the last few days, can't say I have my hopes up).

Enjoy it here. Wish I could come up to London and 'stalk' you guys but I need to conserve my energy for Thursday.

PS There's an exhibition at the Camden Arts Centre on the Dutch photographer/conceptual/performance artist Bas Jan Ader. He disappeared at sea over thirty years ago, mysterious or what. I haven't been to it yet but I plan to as I love his work and have read/heard very good reviews. So perhaps if you aren't completely bogged down with promoting, you should visit it.

PPS I don't think I've ever met anyone who actually calls them 'bangers' either :P

Frin said...

Heehee. With a little practise I'm sure you'll get it down. Being British is fun! When I got back for England my friends mocked my accent for months... I called them all prats. *giggle*
I hope your next cup of tea is slightly more successful... but who knows; maybe you invented a new drink! "Science and history show our real discoveries come from chaos."

Mel said...

Don´t know what the hell are you talking about... yes, my english really sucks (-.-"), but if you´re happy, then I´m happy too!

<3

- love vegan food!
- hate coffee!

xLoveLikeWinterx said...

Bangers and mash are awesome. Though I doubt even most brits even call it that anymore. Maybe its a London thing?

Tea is great, but I've never liked coffee much. Well, except latte but I wouldn't even call that real coffee.

Mayla Mortis said...

sounds like yopu had a fun day...not...

coffee in London isnt even coffee... it cant be...its disgusting...like, dish water with one coffee bean per million cups ^_^.

ew..

and you dont want a London accent!
I'm English and London accents make me giggle...Im not sure why.. but then again, the accents in my area suck too..

Finchy said...

Being British is easy if you know how... or if you are.

For example... its ARSE not ASS! an ASS is a type of Donkey.

We are also on of the only countries that uses a swear word before the word OFF. You say fuck you, we say Fuck off... it makes perfect sence to me... but then again i can fit a swear word into every sentense or word... abso-fucking-lutely! Easier said than fucking done!

Finchy said...

British people swear alot!

Nixx said...

Jaaaaade. You make me smile :).

miss murder;; keely said...

lol. i've always wanted to go to europe. your oh-so lucky..
<3 keely

Niki said...

I haven't heard anyone say bangers and mash in aaaages.
Good luck with your next cup of tea!

Shine said...

Welcome to England.
I'm sure you'll learn how to make tea eventually heheh, although I stil can't really - it usually tastes funny. But coffee's much nicer.
You now need to have some beans on toast to truly experience England.

I hope the weather isn't too bad for you; it's been pissing it down all day today here and was even worse yesterday, but that's england for you.

_xo_ said...

yea, sounds like you had fun!

ShellEy said...

Leetle.
Haha.

What is mash? :/

Finchy said...

I completely back the beans on toast comment...

Even better though... a proper english chippy by the seaside!

Finchy said...

mashed potatos... add cider to it....trust me!

stogaz said...

Haha, you fail. =]

Quick guide to being British:
~*~ Say mate after everything.
~*~ Drink Earl Grey tea with your little finger stuck out.
~*~ Go to the chippy.
~*~ When it's officially Summer wear very little and pretend you don't care it's raining.
~*~ Only ever smile in public if someone falls over in front of you.

And you're there.
=]]]

Kay said...

I have never been to London but I have always wanted to go.

You should keep posting these video blogs of you and the guys while you are touring. They are quite entertaining.

jonnyboy said...

hey jade, take some more video footage of you guys while your over here, i didnt get to speak to you yesterday at maida vale, but you seemed like you didnt really wanna be there. you did sign my behind the times though, thank you xxx

Lisaa said...

Hah.
Silly Jade.

=]<3
-Lisa

Lilith said...

Ah I'm sure you make an utterly superb British man.
I am no Londoner but we are just as Bristish here in Bristol. I vote you stop by sometime. I could show you around :P

xxxx

horrorstruck said...

Haha, coffee and tea sounds nasty.

and, hey. i'm listening to the refused song you picked for the lock up. I love refused. ^___^

Chelsea said...

I put coffee in my tea all the time.
I like it. A sufficient amount of sugar is necessary.

And what's a Banger?
Is it like...a waffle with hotsauce on it?

jadedgeekgirl said...

heh, so Nigel is
but how'd ya pour coffee on your teabag?
oh, wait, nevermind!
hang on, are you French?
Cos that might explain why you're amateur at being British
At least that's my reason
But then I'm also Mexican, soooooo that's another reason why I can't get the accent right, and instead I end up getting a Hispanic accent when I try British
.........
oooooo you should try vegan shepherd's pie!
It's interesting
btw, what kind of tea was it? =D
........
hahahaha, Jade you're a vegan banger!
I just got that!
God, I am slow!
hahaha.....
was that even a joke?
or a fiction of my imagination?

secretshow said...

i've never been to england.

and i've never poured coffee on a teabag either.

for the record, i must say that that is a most unique experience.

jadedgeekgirl said...

But my friend Maddie can do awesome Cockney
just listen to Blur and you're good to go!

ThisCelluloidDreamer said...

Jade I Doubt You Will Read this but im gona make a SHY BOYS WIN SIGN for London

LET ME HOLLA AT YOU

Finchy said...

When your in London don't do all the shitty sight seeing things, they are a complete waste of time... pop into the soho area and check out hooker alley and some of the best record stores London has to offer.

Supreme General of Evil said...

I invented bangers.

I also invented fuzzy bunny slippers.

Isn't the association obvious?

Supreme General of Evil said...

p.s.....

Do you like/have you ever listened to Dir en Grey? I was insanely happy to find their album "Withering to Death" in a local store (it's so hard to find Japanese music in stores where I live).

It's so powerful. You don't have to speak Japanese for it to blow you away. Dir en Grey has the ability to make one wet their panties (on so many levels of panty-wetting).

Lori said...

You said banger. Three times. lol.

falconer said...

When I was in Scotland last year I had vegan Haggis. /random

Chelsea said...

Maybe a Vegan Banger is british for Vegan hooker....if so, damn Jade, you're kinda pervie.

Or maybe it's a salad with a firecracker in it.

Or some kind of mini spicey sandwitch...That's it I'm googleing it.

Chelsea said...

Hahahah! I know what it is now.

xvinsanityx said...

bangers!

volare said...

you poured coffee on your..

...that's really kinda TMI. hope you saw a doctor after!




i jest, i jest. just remember to look the OTHER WAY when crossing streets...

The Timid Wild One said...

Very nice. I'm sure one day you'll be an expert. We still love you, no matter how much coffee you pour on your tea.

art de noyade said...

it doesnt make a difference your not from there.. ha ha..

later jade,

Derek

little Sammy said...

awww thats ok Jade. Being British takes some time to master!

Just try not to pour coffee on your tea bags anymore ok.


Oh and what do vegan bangers consist of?

love little Sammy x.

volare said...

dammit man, you got vegan sausages stuck in my brain with this post so i hadda go climbing all over my state trying to find some :p


...fwiw, I found vegan chorizo (Portuguese sausage) which wasn't bad a'tall but er.. somewhat lacked in texture. is chorizo supposed to squish?

Cone Hat said...

Imagine having a six pack on your chin.
You'd totally get the babes then.

Bowlingcade? said...

I'll be seeing you at Warped Tour!! I hope!!

M. said...

Okay, so you were eating sausages, is that why you had a bottle of HP Sauce in your pocket after the gig on Thursday? Haha. I tell ya what; ketchup and brown sauce together is good, very good.

For true Britishness, eat crumpets, and as someone already mentioned; go to a nice chippy.

Did Smith flip off any babies in London?

Finchy said...

I gave Jade the HP sauce!!!

I forgot to tell him that it is quite an aquired taste!!!

I was also the chippy girl...and my best mate was the one with the cool tattoo that everyone kept stroking!

Helen said...

Dude the concert last night was insane! I loved it, thankyou so much! Was there at 8.30am queuing and it didn't rain. We had the umbrellas up though...sheltering from the sun haha.

Elizabeth said...

hey!!! good luck in London ...

miniSEANyseult said...

hii jade!
just thought id say youre awesome.

Oh, I <3 You.

secretshow said...

and in agreement with youthinasia...

c'mon, you have the time to go online once in a while.
what the hell happened to davey and his long meaningless blogs?

Mel said...

I know you are busy, but I miss your posts...
It makes me happy when days are boring (and that happens a lot)!
I can´t be mad about it, ´cause I know that your life is not resumed to a blog (or myspace, or something like that), but I had to tell ya that what you do here with ´shyboyswin´ is not useless... it´s kinda cool, actually ^^

Best wishes with DU (wiiii... 6/6/06 is so close now)!!!

Ah! And your hair in MM is SUPER COOL!

:D

kel. said...

I couldn't have the teeth it takes to be British.

Becky said...

It was an amazing show, and my FIRST AFI show. Which made it even more spectacular. My friend and I travelled from Devon to get there. In case you don't know, Devon is about 4 hours away from London. And I totally didn't cut school. *coughcough*
Please thank Smith for the hug, although I'm sure he's given so many hugs in the past month that he doesn't remember us three 14-year-old British DF girls. :)
I've never tried tea and coffee together. I hate the taste of coffee, but I LOVE tea.
I heard someone gave you a bottle of HP sauce to help you be more British. I found this quite ironic as an American company has just taken over HP sauce and is moving it to Holland.
I think your best bet is to practice your British accent. We'd all love to hear that. <3

formyowngood said...

i am calling in sick to work on 8/4 to see you at street scene all the way in san diego. cant wait, although i heard last time you guys were there it got crazy... like scary crazy. dosn't matter. im down for whatever.

Willow said...

tea and coffee together?
thats uh...interesting XD
banger is a strange name...up here in Scotland we call them links haha

Nish said...

i dont think coffee is supposed to go with tea but whatever floats your boat
