Who is the painter?
"Well, it's just from headbanging and lifting weights
when I was younger, My dad had a business where he did
painting, roofing and everything, so I'd work with him all
day long.. Then I'd jog over to my friend's house, and
we'd lift weights. If you compare old pictures from when
I was in VILE to now, it's obviously grown and the only
thing I've really done since is headbanging, which must
be fairly similar to weightlifting.
I had it measured maybe when I got married in '98, but I
don't remember and it's bigger now. If you really look at
it, it's bigger than the base of my head or where my ears

I did the film because I liked the story of the rehabilitation of a
prostitute. I had problem with just one bedroom scene where my
character was supposed to be nude. It was impossible for me to actually
do a nude scene. I kept asking the director about it until he must've
thought I'm interested in doing it. My hairdresser Maria bailed me out.
She styled my hair with a wig in such a way that it covered my upper
torso completely. As for the controversial shot of my legs in an inverted V,
I had to do nothing, just hitch up my skirt a bit. But the effect was very
bold. I'd say the bold scenes were more in the mind than body.”

X is a much-covered New Orleans song that tells of a parade collision
between two "tribes" of Mardi Gras Indians and the traditional
confrontation. The song tells of a "spy boy" (i.e. a lookout for one

another "tribe." He threatens to "set the flag on fire.“

X was set out to be a film by Y and another collaborator Z. Y said it
is a surreal "ghost story," and "the idea's ultimately that this
album will form a kind of companion with the feature film." He
stated that David Lynch and Stanley Kubrick were major
influences for the film-script. The first 15 pages of the script made
it to the MySpace accounts of Y and Z but nothing came of it. So,
Y released X’s OST as an album with his band which became the
band’s highest selling record at that given date.
Although, Y and Z initially set out to make it as a film first it still
awaits the required funding to be greenlit. The picture in the next

The song is one of the most recognizable songs. Its emergence as a
popular sporting anthem started when, on October 22 2003, supporters
of Club Brugge K.V. overheard the song being played in a bar in C, while
preparing to attend a UEFA Champions League group match against
C1 and began to sing along. After a 0-1 upset win, the fans brought the
song back with them to Belgium, where Brugge began playing it at their
home games during matches. After Brugge hosted A.S. Roma in a UEFA
Cup match on February 15, 2006, the Italian side brought the song back
home with them and it began to be played inside the stadium. By the
time the World Cup had begun in June, the song had become the
national team's unofficial anthem.
These are only a couple of instances but after this the song
caught on and it is played in many football games.
There have been many chants where the song’s lyrics have been
tweaked as per need. The most famous of those come for D who
plays for Manchester United and E who plays for Arsenal.
