昨晚看了 Wembledon 決賽 XDrz
媽呀 Nadal 索到嘔渣呀！！！！
他一整個人就是索呀，特愛他擊球時發出的叫聲 XDDDD （喂）
另一邊廂， Ferderer 不愧是老牌貨，好自信好優雅好攻呀呀！！！
沒錯。自信笑 + 優雅笑 = 攻
好吧，我期待下屆 Wembledon ~
往上望望，標題明明是「 Son Of Dork: Interviews + Others 」嘛…囧
"Loserville is a state of mind. Everyone gets to a stage in their life where they get a ticket out of Loserville. It could be a job that they've got that they always wanted, they've done something that they're proud of and that's good." - James Bourne, Son of Dork
（ Quoted from ilikemusic ）
Interview from I Like Music
ILM = I Like Music
ILM: How has this week been?
David: I'm quite tired and smelly, but it's been good.
（很少男孩子會說覺得自己 smelly 的吧 XDDD 沒甚麼…我只是覺得很可愛ˇ ←結果我是在廢話 囧rz）
ILM: Your debut single Ticket Outta Loserville did well and is a real energetic number. Can you give us your own personal description of its whole vibe?
David: The song itself is very upbeat and fast-paced and catchy. I'm rubbish at reading into songs though.
ILM: Your debut album, 'Welcome To Loserville' is out now. Which track on the album did you have the most fun laying down in the studio?
David: I'd probably say Slacker. It's a lot more fast-paced than the other songs and stays up all the time, that's my kind of thing. I really enjoy playing that one, I started doing my guitar and I remember doing that one in the studio really late. We started on it about 11pm and I couldn't finish it that night, so I was really gutted, because I wanted to finish it that night because I like the song so much and I wanted to get it done and hear it. We had to wait until the next day to get it finished and when it was done, I was like, 'this song is awesome!'
Stephen: Murdered In The Mosh because the lyrics are really cool, it's a fun song and I think the majority of them are, so I really like it.
ILM: You had Gil Norton, the man behind albums for the Pixies, Foo Fighters and Jimmy Eat World working on it. What did you learn from Gil?
David: Man… that guy! I mean, walking into a studio with a producer with a name like that, you don't know what to expect, and I had an image in my head that he'd be really high pressure, fast-paced, but he was really patient, really nice and knows exactly what he's on about, so you walk in and he's just so patient, he's like 'what can you do with that bit,' and he's not over-analytical on tuning, everything has to be perfectly tuned, but every time you hit the note he's like, 'let's just tune that up again,' and it's exactly the same tuning as it was before, but he's like, 'we'll just do it again just in case.' And he'll sometimes pick up your guitar and do the tuning himself, he's so up on that. He was so amazing to watch working. Years and years of music experience, he's just so smart. He's a great musician but overall as a person, he's just such a good guy man. He's funny.
ILM: James wrote all the tracks on the album. Can you describe the Son of Dork process of making such energetic poprocktastic music please?
David: When we were doing the songs, James showed us some in practice, and basically he gives us the bones and we all put the flesh on it together (if you think of it in a really sick and sad way) （媽呀…這個比喻好索。我愛。 XDrz ） , so you get the basic structure and then we add everything into it to make it better. For the upbeat songs, like Loserville and Slacker, I like those songs because I'm a big fan of pop punk bands like Blink 182 and they have these fast bits and fiddly things, and I'm really into all that kind of stuff, so my aspect of it will be to add bits like that into some of the songs. And Danny just chills and listens to it, and whatever it needs, we'll just chuck it in; if it sounds like it needs to be more upbeat in this part, Danny will just go a bit mental and we'll play around with it, so everyone brought their own thing into it, because everyone's influence in music is slightly different.
We all have mutual agreements on certain bands we all like, but we all have different favourites, and we all have different influences and they shone through in our music. The slower ones you can see Chris's influence coming through. On Sick where he does a bit fat solo, that's like Chris's input; he's really in to Guns N Roses and stuff, he's a big solo guy. So that's what we did, we took the basic structure and then made the song based round our own influences. It gives the songs colour. I think that's my smartest line for a while.
James: I racked my brain to write the lyrics and I think people listening to the album must think, how the hell did they come up with all the stories, because I don't write songs and won't even bother finishing them if there's not a strong lyrical meaning, because that's what a song is - a three and half minute story. All the best songs and my favourite songs have great lyrics and stories and they've all got a message in there somewhere. It's good when you can listen to a song and forget about the music and just read the lyrics. I think you can read our lyrics, you really can, you can open up the album cover and read the lyrics like a book, and it's interesting. You could sell them as poems. Maybe there should be a Son Of Dork poem book?
（完全同意！！！我也喜歡有意思的歌詞。不過詹詹你也太自信了吧……我記得他還曾說過，覺得自己的歌詞比 Simple Plan 的好上 10 倍。串得佢丫 XDDDrz
ILM: The first real song you wrote was What I Go To School For, which is just brilliant. How did it feel when you heard it on the radio?
James: Me and Matt wrote that, and it was after we wrote that song that we realized this song is good enough to be on the radio and be in the charts. We felt like we'd written a hit, you know when you do something and just know it's going to do well? It was like that, and it was cool hearing it on the radio. It wasn't number one but it still did very well.
（其實 Matt 也很讚的……大家也不妨留意他一下喔。哈哈。）
ILM: You started to learn the guitar age 7 and now look what you've done! How does it feel being responsible for more kids learning to play the guitar, having inspired a whole new generation?
James: It feels amazing. I went to buy my kid brother a guitar in town and the guy behind the counter looked at me, pointed and said, 'you're the reason we're selling so many guitars,' and I was like, 'cool, commission?'
David: I wish I'd been playing that long, man. I'd be more on top of my game. Everyone in this band is playing the guitar better than me! It's quite scary really, Danny's been playing the guitar for about ten years and he's the drummer. I started when I was 14 or so have been playing four or five years. Steve's been playing for seven or eight years. It's cool though, because you can jam with anyone in the band. It's cool though, because you see a lot more people playing the guitar these days.
ILM: James - you love being in a band rather than being solo. What's the best thing about being in Son Of Dork compared to being in Busted.
James: It's hard to sum up you know. This band isn't really like Busted where we were all so different, but we're all on the same page. We're all the same kind of people. Busted was really a one-off thing. Everyone in this band are really nice guys, so we're just five guys who really like the same music and have a good time. We have a common ground and that's what our music is, all bands will tell you that. It's very similar to Busted, but it just rocks more. It's almost like someone took Busted and put it through a rock-rock-rock machine.
ILM: Steve - your stepdad is an Elvis impersonator and encouraged you to get up on stage and play the guitar. What does he think of your success so far with your debut?
Steve: He's chuffed to bits, really chuffed with me. That's where I got a lot of my influences from because I'm really into 50s and 60s rock n roll. Elvis is my idol, but I also like punk. Green Day is my second best thing in the whole world and Billie Joe Armstrong is another idol. So it's thanks to my step-dad that I'm on stage and playing the guitar.
ILM: I hear you visited Graceland too, what was that like?
Steve: It was emotional that - really cool. It's like a different world, so much fun.
ILM: Have you met Billie Joe Armstrong from Green Day yet?
Steve: Not yet, but I'm hoping to meet him when they tour next year. I hope so.
ILM: Well you never know, you might get asked to support them?
Steve: Nah, not a chance. But I just want to meet him even if it was just for two minutes, to say, 'Billie Joe - you're the reason I'm playing the guitar.'
ILM: Can you describe your favourite place on earth?
Steve: Gracelands - Memphis. I'd love to have a house in Memphis, it means a lot. Sun studios are there, where he did his first recording, and his house.
James: ...and Justin Timberlake comes from there too!
（補充……沒錯。是跳舞那個，以前在 'N Sync 的那個 Justin Timberlake 。）
Steve: Oh yeah, and Justin Timberlake. I'd love to have a house in San Francisco too, where Billie Joe lives.
ILM: What are you doing for Christmas?
Steve: I'm going home and I might be taking a vacation with Danny, because he's like a bigger brother, so that'll be fun.
ILM: James placed ads in NME and The Stage to get you all together. Was James like Simon Cowell at a table in front of auditionees?
Danny: It was a little bit like that and there were thousands of people there. We had to go in to the room in groups of ten, and there were two preliminary auditions, the first of which was basically to see if you could play or not. Because there were lots of 16 year olds who just liked the idea of being in a band who couldn't play or who'd been playing for a couple or weeks. The first audition they got rid of people who couldn't play. The first one we had to play for 30 seconds and the second one for 45 seconds. So there were only 10 drummers left for the second audition and I didn't think I was going to get it, to be honest, and it was really mad.
ILM: Danny - you spent ten years playing with hardcore metal band Spiral Rock. How does being in Son Of Dork compare?
（ 10 年！！原來 Danny 你的事業歷史這麼遠久了的啊〔毆〕…對不起我白目了。〔跑走〕）
Danny: It's very strange to be truthful. It's just as challenging, but it's challenging in a different way from a drummer perspective. Being in a pop band is completely the opposite end of the scale to what I'm used to. It's just different. All my mates back home are taking the p out of me and that, but, at the end of the day, they'd give their right arms to do what I'm doing. And it's good music anyway. I like being in this band, it's amazing.
ILM: The name Son Of Dork came from a scene in Problem Child. What inspires you about 'loser' movies? Do you think it's important to get across the message that it's good to be different?
James: Everyone out there is so hell bent on being cool and people forget that being cool is just about being yourself and whatever makes you happy. And people get called geeks or dorks or whatever because they're different to everyone else, but everyone is supposed to be unique and different
（ I TOTALLY AGREE WITH THIS!!!!!!!! 我想，這就是我喜歡 SOD 的主要原因了。你們令我感動。 ）
Exclusive Interview: Son Of Dork
Son of Dork recently enjoyed top ten success with their second single Eddie's Song. Celebrity Scoop caught up with former Busted member James Bourne, and his new bandmates, at Virgin Megastores in Nottingham where they signed for hundreds of young girls... What's your new single about?
James: Eddie has got 27 kids, but he doesn't know. Eddie is a fictional rock character. We can't put it on somebody else, because we tried to put it on Eddie Van Halen, but we googled him and realised he doesn't have 27 kids, and he's married.
Steve: He has one kid called Wolfgang.
Chris: But we like the name Eddie, and also me and James were in L.A. to see Eddie Van Halen's house, and next to it was Eddie Murphy's house, so we called him Eddie.
Are your lyrics important to you?
James: Of course, because I like to think people can read the lyrics on the album as poems. They can work without music, as poetry.
Dave, why do you play the character in the video for Eddie's Song, have you got 27 kids or something?
Dave: I don't know. They just pushed me into it I think. I turned up and they said it was me doing it. I think they just wanted to see me in tight, tight pants.
（被屈機 XDDDrz 不過這樣不是很可愛嗎~~~~〔滾地〕…再補多個原因：大家都想看小 Dave 被御姐團壓 + 推倒的模樣！！是吧！！ XDDDDD ）
Is there cynicism in your music?
James: Yeah. We're sinister. I think there might be a little bit of angry sarcasm in our music.
Are you happy with how successful the album has been?
James: I don't know if it's as successful as we want it to be yet. I think there's still a long way for it to go yet. We don't want it to be one o those albums that you see for a month, and then you don't see it an more. We hope that this album will still be living on next year.
Chris: We've got more singles to release which will hopefully carry this album further.
James: Yeah, we want this album to last.
Is your schedule really tough?
James: It keeps us moving.
Chris: It does. It's when you're in a band and you're not busy that you need to worry.
James: I hate not being busy. I cannot stand waking up in the morning, and going “Oh what are we gonna do today?", These days are fun.
Did you realise that Son of Dork abbreviates to spell SOD?
（沒錯… "SOD" 在英文裏是罵人用的。可是我覺得這樣的名字才帥啊～ XDrz ）
James: We did realise that.
Chris: It wasn't a deliberate thing, but we're cool with it.
James: We also realised that dork is the whale's penis, which is the largest of the penises of the world, and the wahlrus is second. If you're gonna be named after a penis, it might as well be a big one.
Your name implies you might want to break America eventually...
（ "Dork" 在美式俚語裏是罵人笨蛋的意思。但這主持問這題真是想太多了吧… XDrz ）
James: What, because dork is in the title? I think it's also in the English dictionary. I suppose it's because it's from an American film called Problem Child. It comes from a scene where a boy is in a football team ,and his dad is coaching, and he can't hit the ball, and the whole team is shouting son of dork.
（ James 你說過你們名字的由來 N 百萬次啦……幾乎每次訪問也會說一遍。我快要倒過頭來也懂得背啦 XDrz 看的出他真的很喜歡很喜歡這個名字，和那部電影。）
Chris, did you end up joining the group because you've toured with Busted in the past?
Chris: Yeah, I did the tours, and I've known James for a few years. When this opportunity came up he asked if I wanted to come down and play with the rest of the guys at the audition. We knew we got on well from time spent on the tour before. He liked my playing, and I like James and what he does.
James: We knew we could go on tour and not kill each other. （這個… XDrz 果然是重點。〔噗〕）
Chris: Yeah, which is important.
Have you spoken to Matt or Charlie recently, James?
（天…十次訪問有九點五次都有向 James 問這條問題的。大家好像都好掛念 Busted 的樣子……不不，應該說，大家都想看八卦吧？ XD ）
James: I was with Matt Last night. Funny you should speak of the devil. Our friend played an unplugged show in a pub called the Wilmington in Angel. Charlie, we don't really hear much from him, but I don't think his mum does either. （詹詹你這樣說好衰！！ XDrz 〔指〕不過，的確是與 Matt 碰頭比較多呢。我也有點想念 Charlie 說… T人T ）
Chris: We bumped into Charlie at the studio, randomly, didn't we? He was cool.
James, why did you decide to form another band after Busted split up?
James: I had so much fun the first time, I thought I might as well do it a second time. I had the opportunity to do it a second time, I thought I might as well do it again.
Steve, at seventeen, aren't you a bit young to be dealing with all this pressure?
Steve: I'm just eighteen actually. （嗯…現在 19 了…） James started when he was my age. Dougie was 15 when he started. （揭發！！ McFly 成員的辛秘 XDrz 〔不是啦〕…好吧我承認我在搞 GAG
Is it true you live with McFly?
Chris: They live in the same building, the same complex. Girls Aloud are there as well. I think some of them have moved out, but some of the girls are still there. They're quiet though, they're boring.
Do you talk to them?
Chris: We'd like to!
Steve: We joined the gym just because Girls Aloud go there.
（ XDDDDDDDDD Steve 你真是誠實的好孩子 XD ）
Are they as thin as they look?
Steve: Yeah, if they're gonna eat lunch, they don't eat much.
James: Cheryl used to watch me swim before she went out with Ashley Cole.
Dave: Cheryl Tweedy used to watch you swim!?
Steve: Cheryl Tweedy did not watch you swim!
James: She used to watch me swim. This is before I knew Dave. Dave has no basis for comparison.
Dave: I know for a fact that Cheryl Tweedy would no way sit and watch you swim.
Danny: You can't even swim, can you?
James: Of course I can swim.
（媽呀 XDDDDrz 我超級喜歡上面這段！！！〔心〕大家小爭吵好可愛，而且我一想他們說話的內容那場面就覺得好笑…… Cheryl 看著游泳的 James ，還是要穿著泳褲的…媽呀太惡搞啦 XDDDDDDDrz 詹詹你會不會吹牛過份啊，聽你的語氣好像說到自己很多女孩子黏過來似的！ XDD
What have you got coming up after the single?
Chris: We've got a movie theme tune that we're doing for the new Ant and Dec movie.
James: It's called Alien Autopsy. It's a little bit like Shaun of the Dead. It's got British comediennes in it like Jimmy Carr, and Bill Pullman from Independence Day.
以下是視頻s~~大家可以看得沒那麼辛苦啦（如果有人在看的話。 XDrz ）
Son Of Dork - Interview (X-Change)
這個重點是最末粉絲 send 來的那條問題 XDDD
"If you were a girl fan, who of the band would you find slim?"（大概是這樣）

Son of Dork backstage
我幾乎沒留意他們說話的內容 XDDDDD 我注意的是某詹和 Dave 的互動啦！！
