10 things i want to do before i die

1. Go hangliding across the Grand Canyon
2. Live in New York City
3. Climb a really high mountain
4. Hike across Morocco with really good friends
5. Rob a bank
6. Meet Noam Chomsky
7. Play live to at least 10,000 people
8. Fly a fighter jet
9. See the Smashing Pumpkins live (never say never... :blink: )
10. Hold a rave in Canterbury Cathedral

and it would be cool to road trip across america, either in a car with mates or do the whole easy rider thing...
I get into so much trouble for this list, but two of the things i really want to do (and i know this sounds terrible but admit, it would be fascinating) are:

1. kill someone
2. have sex with a prostitute

but the other more normal things are:

3. fly a fighter jet
4. win the nobel prize for literature
5. hike round the scenery as seen in films like Hero/Crouching Tiger/Koyaaniquatsi
6. fall deeply in love in the true Romantic sense
7. lose that love (in a vaugely masochistic sense to see what it would feel like)
8. drive an F1 car
9. own a lambourghini Murcielago
10. get married to a truly beutiful woman and have four children

its not terrible really to want to kill someone... its glamorised so much in films/books, its natural that we all want to know what it feels like. i mean if you did kill someone just for the sake of wanting to kill someone then thats one thing... i kinda want something bad to happen to me which i'd have to get revenge for, like to kill somone with good reason.
the whore thing, would be interesting i suppose, i just hope i never get that desperate.
i thought it was a good thread, but havent had many replies...

1. have a child with anita
2. visit macchu pichu
3. parachute jump/skydive
4. go on safari
5. hot air balloon ride
6. cross country drive with anita from NY to LA
7. experience weightlessness
8. take anita on a round the world trip

10. take a sabbatical... head off into the wilderness for a year, solo

2: spend a while living in a jungle/rainforest
3: find true love

Having sex with a prossie is hardly abnormal. Most men won't admit it, but I'd put money on more than 50% having done so.

As for losing the love of your life - don't wish for it. Next to losing your kids, it's by far the worst thing that could ever happen to you.


You know, I'm finding it really hard to think of any, mainly 'cos in the overall scheme of things none of them really matter. Mmmm....

1. I want to come back as a woman, but I guess one day's experience would be interesting.

2. Spend a year going round Psy-Trance festivals, and playing at them whenever possible.

3. Have a kid with Wendy (bit old now)

4. Get a new body that has nothing wrong with it. (My brain's just fine thanks... :smoke: )

5. Meet the Dalai Lama

6. Put on a Party that's the best... EVER!

7. Glow with pure white light

8. Have no inhibitions (sod the rest of you, if you don't like it - tough :Wink3: )

9. Invent the Infinite Improbability Drive

10. See the Big Bang, (oh, and the end of the universe too ;-)

Hugs y'all,

the macchu pichu thing i wanna do too, would b proper sweet. weightlessness in space, that would rule too. also to play SEone or the annual Little Green Planet would be cool. :clubjump:
and i've always had a fantasy about setting up a HUGE treehouse village in the middle of the woods on massive trees with like branchy walkways in between n stuff.
and shagging kylie ten times, i wouldnt say no..
barclay, those are all such awesome ones :Smile3:

In the grand scheme of things all of our personal ambitions are not that important.. well they are , to us, but I'd like to see things like global peace and no one go hungry, before I'd wish for anything for me!

I do love playing at outdoor parties though! <hint hint god>


I love this little guy! he's so cute and blue... I like hugging so I'd wish that i could hug everyone in the world!

I'm with fromen ory on the playing live to lots of people, but my sights are a bit lower, just 1000 people all really enjoying themselves would do.

SO thats no. 1

8. Grow old disgracefully :grandad:
9. Live in a house in the country near where I grew up (also i've always liked the idea of wild horses roaming my estate)
10. Do the central/south american mayan/incan/aztec thing, see some temples, go to some mexican/brazilian parties. (maybe find a crystal skull)

There are loads more but they're mostly obssesive muso things, have record label blah... be known for my contribution to music blah... win an ivor novello award blah blah blah.

oh, and I love saturdays!!!!!!

I'd like to do everything before I die, because afterwards things might get a bit more tricky.
