I hate everything about public speaking if I am the one giving the presentation. x'D
I am surprised that I don't mind singing in front of many people, in this case, I can really ignore people that are listening to me but...something is different if I have to speak in front of many people. I can't tell why I dislike it so much.

Mister Black, how do you do?

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀I'm doing great, as befits an aristocratic asshole.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Women, dancing, singing⠀ and a hell of⠀a lot of
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀alcohol. ⠀⠀Want to join?⠀⠀Or should I bite you?
Mister Black how do you do

Do you like to sing?

Yes I enjoy singing and I especially like singing background harmony whether it be 4 part harmony, 3 part or 2 part. I've always found 2 part harmony to have less constraints because you have more freedom to pick and choose harmonies without conflicting with other harmony lines being sung.
That was until I heard the following duet where their harmonies, in my opinion, are nicely arranged with complex counterpoint. The harmonies their two voices produce is a blessing and something that I will never get tired of listening to. Excellent work! /Alex

How do you celebrate Christmas where you live? Do you have any regional foods, traditions etc.? 🎄🎁

TobbeAsks’s Profile PhotoTobbe
I live in poland. I celebrate holidays according to the Christian faith. The main improvement on our table is carp in any form. We also have dumplings with cabbage and mushrooms, red borscht, Cabbage with peas, kutia, etc. They started the supper by singing any carol together, then they broke the wafer. After dinner, the star comes with presents.

TobbeAsks’s Profile PhotoTobbe
Yeah there are some odd regional traditions.
🔔 In Dewsbury they start ringing a church bell (the bell that Black Tom de Soothill once presented the church with as penance for murdering his servant) at 10am and therafter once for each year since the year 0. This must be a nightmare for local residents.
🏰 From Clifford’s Tower in York they hang mistletoe, if a woman stands underneath it it means she wants to be kissed by anyone passing by. (You’re still allowed to fire crossbows in York by the way, providing that you’re shooting at a Scottish person. Conversely, 45 minutes away in Hull, crossbows have been banned since the 1500s.)
🎼 In Dungworth xmas carols are only sung by locals in a local pub ever since carolling was banned in churches hundreds of years ago by Puritans. There’s also a local pub we used to go to for meals (its name escapes me, I think it’s in or near the village of Goodmanham, where a Temple of Odin lies buried beneath the local church) that does public carolling in the pub, and I wonder if this is rooted in the same tradition. Furthermore, the Yorkshire villages of Castleton, Oughtibridge, Bradfield, Ecclesfield and Worrall all have a 200 year old tradition of pub carol singing, and all have their own Christmas carols unique to that village.
🐴 Every Christmas Eve in Richmond marketplace a person wearing a horses head is sung to by a group of huntsmen who then ‘bring it to life’ with hunting sticks and a horn.
🌞 In York Every 21st December (usually the date of Yule or the Winter Solstice) the Sheriff is accompanied around the city by the York Waits playing music. The procession ends with a speech at the Mansion House.
🐠 On Boxing Day at Flamborough Head, eight fishermen perform a sword dance on the high street.
💈 On the common land of Beverley Westwood at Solstice Dawn or Dusk (winter and summer) , local Morris sides often meet to dance at The Black Tower, weather and other restrictions permitting. I have been to this myself, and danced at dawn. Beer and music is to be had in a local pub afterwards.
🍎 During the Christmas Day service at Ripon Cathedral, visitors and parishioners are each given the gift of an apple, a custom that began in Mediaeval times.
⚽️ In Scarborough on Boxing Day the 150-year-old tradition of Firemen versus Fishermen having a football (soccer) match on the beach continues. (I do not know if women can be members of either team, something for me to investigate).
🔥 On 31st December a Viking Fire Festival takes place at Flambrough, with fireballs and the traditional burning of a Viking longship, something that’s practiced in a number of towns in the UK with Viking heritage.
🦃 This year as you tuck into your turkey, give thanks to William Strickland, born on the Yorkshire coast, who brought the bird back to England in 1526. It became a popular Christmas food during the Victorian era.
🧀 for over 100 yers now, Yorkshire folk have enjoyed a slice of cheese with their xmas cake

When you listen to a song for the first time, would you say it’s mostly the beat or the lyrics that dictate how much you enjoy it? Or do they have equal significance to you? Does it change depending on the genre of music you’re listening to? 🎧🎶

anonamouse89887’s Profile Photoanonamouse
It very much depends on the genre of music, or more specifically if it's instrumental or not! When it comes to instrumental music it's obviously the beat and general sound that matters the most. While with music featuring someone who's singing, lyrics play a big part in my enjoyment of it. If it has lyrics that I don't exactly agree with it can honestly break a song for me 😬

* We'd meet, and it would be awkward at first.
*we'd walk, talk, and just observe each other.
*We would talk and accidentally stumble upon something that we both can talk about a lot.
*We'd both have the idea - hey, let's go somewhere, where we can enjoy nature, have food, and talk much more.
*we'd end up ordering something like Mcdonalds because we both love the fries? Or maybe not fries! They're all mine. After that we're going to chill by a river, lake, wherever.
* As we're laughing and done with the food, I come up with the idea that we could go to the night cinema because that'll be fun.
*We watch a movie, and then we're going to look for the car because we lost it. Something bad always happens after my suggestions.
*We find the car after hours. He drives me home with music blasting, me singing along and observing the sky through the "sunroof" and the forest.
*I go home, I have made some great memories through this journey, and my hair still smells like his perfume.
* and we never talk again
*or maybe we do 🤭

Have you recorded yourself singing then played it back & were disappointed?

Not a disappointment.. but I did use to record myself singing and put it on YouTube.
This was when I was back in school. I didn't tell anyone about my channel, and it didn't have my name... but someone at school found it, then proceeded to play it, mocking my voice, etc... haven't sang properly since :/
Granted that was back when I had no confidence lol

What's your special talent? xD

Nabeel1221’s Profile PhotoNabeel Hassan
Not so special BUT Yesterday I had a singing audition for Kalam e Iqbal singing Competition. There were around 50 participants who had an audition and it was kinda semi final round. Out of 50, only 10 have been selected who'll perform in the Final and Alhamdolillah I also got selected for the Final. I'm so excited and hopeful to win. 😊😍

Say you're going somewhere in the morning, how much time do you usually give yourself to get ready? 👕🚿🕖

TobbeAsks’s Profile PhotoTobbe
It depends where I'm going cause I have a tendency to get distracted or for things to start going wrong when I'm focusing on a time I need to leave by. If I'm just going out to work or to see the horses I can get ready in like ten minutes, if I'm going somewhere else or I wanna put more effort in then give me an hour so I have time to get distracted singing and find an outfit I actually want to wear. I will end up switching at least once 😅

What, in your opinion, is the greatest art form and why?

Oh man. That’s difficult really, as art is truly subjective, and I think that every art form has its own unique value, whether that be the wonder of immersing yourself in a book or film, the act of pouring yourself creatively through painting or singing, for example.
If I truly had to choose, it would be a toss up between visual art and music. They’re both the cornerstones of human communication, with legends and stories being passed down through the ages via the spoken word and song. Language - particularly cuneiform, dating back to Sumeria, the world’s first visual language (or at least one of - with it being the most widely spread language in the Middle East ); comprising of different lines and triangles. Hieroglyphs in particular are also incredible to look at and study. These art forms enabled us to survive and thrive throughout the changing world, and it has the ability to unite all of us, particularly music, as it’s so ingrained in our collective consciousness. It transcends barriers and cultures, has the ability to move the soul and inspire, and so much more. As a truly personal preference though, as I am very biased, I do love music and painting the most - both the act of creating and observing the works :)
(I hope this made sense as I’m pretty tired, so apologies for the rambling and sentence structure!) :)

Śpiewałaś kiedyś piosenkę ze słowami: "Umcia, umcia pękła gumcia" co sądzisz o takim poczuciu humoru i tego typu działalności piosenkarskiej? Niby piosenka nadaje się na wieczorne ognisko i wygłupy przy nim, jednak czy poziom artystyczny wystarczający?

KubaGR571’s Profile PhotoKubaGR571
Have you ever sang a song with the words: "Umcia, umcia burst rubber band" what do you think about such a sense of humor and this type of singing activity? Supposedly, the song is suitable for an evening bonfire and fooling around with it, but is the artistic level sufficient?
I know the words of this song, but it is not the content of this song that is not enough to make it even suitable for singing at the campfire in the evening. This is worse than the Music Act stipulates?
Znane mi są słowa tej piosenki. To jest gorsze niż ustawa o muzyce przewiduje 🎼🎶🎵🎤🎸💛🎶

Ever had to experience being laughed at for a rly stupid reason? I was in the car w/my cousin and his friend and my Spotify was on and Chaka Khan's 'I'm every woman' came on and I started singing along b/c it’s a bop and these overgrown kids started laughing at me cause I’m not a woman.

I mean... I get laughed at a lot for varying reasons lol it doesn't bother me :)
I laugh along too xD

I literally thought 50 Cent was saying "go Charlotte, it's your birthday" at the start of "In Da Club" for THE longest time. My friends heard me sing it like that and thought it was hilarious. The song made so much more sense when they explained the actual lyric to me.

Since childhood, I have loved the New Year and caroling, although I am Jewish by nationality, but I performed caroling once when I was already an adult, and those people really liked my singing. I still have good memories of those moments in my life😜
Я дуже полюбляла з дитинства Новий Рік та колядування, хоча я по національності єврейка, але колядувала один раз у вже дорослому віці та мій спів дуже сподобався тим людям. В мене досі гарні спогади залишилися про ті моменти життя😜

It’s Halloween!: What is your honest opinion of Halloween/Trick or Treating?

So long as it stays as just going around in costumes and getting sweets, I have no problem with it :3
I know my neighbours kids are dressing up tonight and they are gonna look adorable xD
I remember last year, a group of teens were going around with their younger siblings! They were singing "this is halloween" whilst walking around the village! It was awesome xD
It's the people who think "oh I'll trick instead"... and have done actual damage to people's properties... yeah no. That's what I have the problem with :s

Where'd you go? I miss u so

Seems like it's been forever,
That you've been gone.
She said "Some days I feel like shit,
Some days I wanna quit, and just be normal for a bit, "
I don't understand why you have to always be gone,
I get along but the trips always feel so long,
And, I find myself tryna stay by the phone,
'Cause your voice always helps me when I feel so alone,
But I feel like an idiot, workin' my day around the call,
But when I pick up I don't have much to say,
So, I want you to know it's a little fucked up,
That I'm stuck here waitin', at times debatin',
Tellin' you that I've had it with you and your career,
Me and the rest of the family here singing "Where'd you go?"

What are some small things that make your day better?

Nothing is making my days better so, lemme tell you about some little things that actually make me happy; lanterns, red capes and hoods, scented candles, old book shops, winter's first rain, sweat shirts, shawls, birds, nightingale's song, tree houses, butterflies, golden hours and sunsets, river sides, deserted curvy roads, long drives, cliff jumping, flute and violin instrumentals, star gazing, bare foot walks on dewy grass or crunchy maple leaves, wooden bridges, bamboo pens for calligraphy, singing and listening old ghazals, romantic ballads, sunflower fields, beaches, colorful stones, flower wreaths, night time outings, fireworks, full moon, and everything that is aesthetically pleasing. ❤️💯

➊ – singing, writing, drawing (being creative)
➋ – gaming, reading and watching movies/series, listening to music (entertaining myself with media)
➌ – exploring (being in nature or travelling around)
➍ – enjoying time with friends, family and animals (if that counts as a hobby)

Do you perhaps have any suggestions for games one can play to get to know each other better? Tomorrow I'll be hosting a dinner for novices at the student organiation I'm a part of, us mentors are tasked with coming up with such a game each 🗣🎲♣️

TobbeAsks’s Profile PhotoTobbe
Hi Tobbe. Unfortunately I am not familiar with many games but here are a few ideas:
- Monopoly - could pair users into teams where they need to work together to make informed financial decisions.
- Guessing Game - put names of people, places or things into a container and each participant selects a name and has to act it out w/o talking (non verbal) where people have to guess what it is.
- Karaoke - if the people are not shy (courageous) and you have the proper Karaoke equipment you could have people entertain by singing.
- Literary or Poetry game -
a. read a poem and see who can guess the author
b. Read passage from famous literary piece and have people guess writer.
c. Select a handful of famous poems and have people read the poem and have group discuss it's meaning.
d. Creative writing exercise: Provide a topic and have guests write a short story (paragraph) or short poem about topic. Then have them read what they wrote.
e. Roleplay: Choose a topic or historical figure or artist, etc and have people act out a script. For example, you could take a famous play (maybe one scene) with multiple characters and color code the text based upon each character. The participants could then read their lines. The props, music, background noise (horses, dogs, etc) could be supplied by the audience.
This assumes you are dealing with adults who do not mind expressing themselves in public.
Sorry I don't have much knowledge with games and so I just made this stuff up out of thin air. :)

What was your favorite concert or gig you’ve ever attended?

For me it has to be Jay Park’s concert back in 2020. Honestly, his stage presence, vocals, rap, energy was everything 🔥 I just enjoyed his concert so much 😄
Katy Perry has to be up there as well. I saw her in 2014 and her concert was just complete fun 🥳Lots of things going on: dancing, singing, interacting with the crowd. I remember she even brought a fan on stage and gave her pizza 🍕 (that was so cute hehe)
Overall, I reckon Jay Park and Katy Perry’s concerts are the best concerts I’ve ever attended ✅

I was 13 and we were getting ready for school. It’s was early morning ofc and I had to rush out of the room ‘cause I thought someone was crying *out loud* at that hour. Apparently my elder brother was just singing “in the end” I never heard him sing after that day and I feel bad for telling him, why I came out of the room that morning. 🥲

《 shoutout 》 What's one of the most fun childhood memories you have ?

heyitzlauren’s Profile Photolauren
Ooo, good question!
My favorite would have to be when me and my step-sister were growing up, we would make our own “music videos” to songs we liked at the time. And we would like set up props around the living room and put on a performance for our parents as well.
We’d even use the curtains on the window to hide behind as like “stage curtains.” 😆
It was a BLAST, and there used to be countless videos of us dancing around, singing, and “performing”, especially when we were like 4-8 years old.
Unfortunately though, most of those videos were lost several years ago, so I truly only have the memories of a lot of them.
But, I still remember the “home videos” we made so vividly, even beyond that age, like up until our early teens, and it makes me nostalgic even thinking about it. It was truly some of the best years, growing up with her. ☺️
