The rules are: Comment to this post and I will give you 5 subjects/things I associate you with. Then post this in your LJ and elaborate on the subjects given.

So to start off with, I got five from Val:

father - My father, Ruairí MacEibhir. My namesake, in fact, Rory is an Anglicized version and Stone a stage name I chose because MacEibhir's too easily mangled. Other than that ... he's my da. Always there for me in one way or another, I don't know what I'd be without him. He's the center around which my family orbits.

music - If you want me to elaborate on music, I could go on for some time. Suffice to say that for me music is true love and true frustration, the highs and the lows all blended. To meld notes and lyrics together, polish them with the rest of Breaker Street, each member adding a bit of his or her essence to it, then present the end result to a crowd hungry for the sound and emotion ... that's what makes me feel completely me.

fame - I've learned about fame on a small scale, as Breaker Street gained a reputation and following in the NYC club scene. If we're as lucky as we are good, we'll soon be learning about it on a larger scale. I'm equal parts excited and nervous about that prospect. It's ... strange, having people so focused on you. All kinds of strange.

Irish - Well. Yes, I am, exceedingly. I was born and raised in Connemara, and am one of a dwindling minority who speaks Irish Gaelic as a first language. My mother always said we were a nation of poets and warriors. I've tried to stick to the former, but I can be the latter if need demands.

cool - I'll take this as a compliment and thank you for it. I don't know how cool I really am ... I certainly have plenty of what Sascha calls dorky moments. But I think cool is at bottom a quality of liking yourself and being comfortable in your own skin. Which I do and am, most of the time.

Hedonism: I plead guilty to this one. I enjoy indulging all five of my senses, as well as encouraging others to do the same. We all have to deal with the harsh and ugly in life, but who could not want to enjoy the beautiful and the sensual to make up for that? I've never understood the attitude that pleasure is somehow bad for the soul.

Incredible Sex: It was for me as well, sweet.

Beautiful Man: I'm ... glad you still think so. I can't really claim much credit for my looks, of course. And I hope they're not the only kind of beauty you see in me anymore.

Strong Hands: They have to be, since I use a fairly heavy gauge for my guitar strings. Of course they do have other applications as well.

Endurance: Yes, well ... for this again I mainly have to credit my genetics, at least for my physical endurance. I've certainly never found myself in short supply of that.

Moving: I was glad to help you move into your new place, a chara. Lord knows I've moved around often enough, usually with my family's help. Or were you referring to a different type of moving?

Stage Presence: I've always thought of my stage presence as an energy that the audience gives me and that the band and I give back through the music. It's like a positive feedback loop, amplifying the experience.

RAF: Thanks for reminding me to look for that uniform. I'd hate to lose any of the insignia or anything ...

Tall: Six feet, three inches to be precise. Da's girlfriend calls me 'obnoxiously tall and annoyingly cheerful'.

Or was that the other way around?

Flirt: Yes, I'll confess, I do enjoy flirting and being flirted with. It's a bit of a weakness of mine.

Stinky old man pubs in Buttfuckshire, Ireland: *laughs* If you ever have a chance to visit Eire and her pubs, my friend, you'll find that each has it's own character. I've been in a few that merit your description, but others are young, rough, urbane, gritty or genteel according to the kind of people who show up.

Aloofness: Have I come across as aloof? My apologies if I have, Jean Paul. Maybe I'm becoming more cautious about how much I share of myself when I'm off stage, but I'd rather set that attitude aside with my friends.

Sex: And were my answers to your questionnaire satisfactory, Mr. Beaubier? No wait, Sascha said you asked what sex act I was most ashamed of. Only the very few in which I misread someone's intentions, and that usually lead to more regret than shame.

Peter: A great fan, an even better friend, and a wonderful dancer.

Music, naturally: I could just refer you to Val's answer above, but why not delve a little deeper into my favorite subject? I've steeped myself in music for as long as I can remember, starting with the church hymns and cei li dances of my childhood and wending my way through classical, rock, jazz, folk, and more. It all influences me.

Would you mind telling Junie I say hello?

Actually, that I say: Il mio aeroscivolante è pieno di anguille.

She'll appreciate that.

I'll do my best. Hopefully my accent won't completely butcher the message.

And for your five: gaffing, jewelry, beauty, grace, passion.

You picked those particular words just to be difficult, didn't you?

I picked those because they were what came to mind. I can choose some others if you prefer.

From: [identity profile] sand-andwater.livejournal.com

No need. I managed to figure something out for each, even if they may not have been particularly what you had in mind.

Send five my way, please.

Those were good answers - and what does... acharawhasit mean?

A chara is Gaeilge for "my friend".

Sensitivity, drums, smiles, hats, uncles.

Oh, why not? Ain't got nothin' better to do.

Every time I look at that icon I nearly fall out of my chair laughing, just so you know.

For my dear sister in law ... Determination, cutting and herding, Stones, Bump, damned fool

He weren't none too pleased with me for that, I don't think. But ask me if I care any...

For you: friendship, sister, choir, dancing, cookies.

The last answer was a cop out and I admit that but well. Cookies.

If I pretend to fangirl you, can I play?

That is very sweet of you, Chuck, but I wouldn't want you to rupture anything.

Smart, the B&J or Haagen Dazs debate, treasure hunts, popcorn fights, cootie attacks.

I admit that last one is a blast from the past.

Okay. I'll just go tell a reporter that I am carrying your love child. Won't that be fun?

blah blah blah cool blah blah blah lies blah blah blah...

Loopy wants five.

From: [identity profile] fey-fire.livejournal.com
Loopy does, does she?

Sleeping with her boy
Being a footwarmer
Stealing socks

And for her owner:
Bossing the band

Ha. Ha.

Quit goofing around, where are my other three?

Date: 2009-02-26 03:43 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] fey-fire.livejournal.com
We're being serious, are we? All right.

Long talks
Kiss the Girl

Oh, my God. I did not give you those...I am so sorry, Ro. I do not remember even listing those out. When did I?

And for the record, you are beautiful, Rory. I have always thought so and that isn't a superficial comment about solely your looks.

It was a bit more than a week ago now, sorry about the delay. And I certainly didn't mind answering them for you.

Date: 2009-03-08 06:33 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] sand-andwater.livejournal.com
Be that as it may, Ro, I am sorry. I shouldn't have...wouldn't have done that if I...I really have no excuse. I'm sorry.
