  3. 3.  After a brief chat with The Beatles, X asked John, Paul, Ringo, George, and Brian Epstein if they wanted to smoke a joint. Epstein looked apprehensive and said that the band hadn‟t tried marijuana for years. X was immediately surprised because he had been under the impression that they smoked weed because of the song I Want to Hold Your Hand. He mistook the lyrics “I can‟t hide” with “I get high.” The Beatles were never one to back down from a new experience and agreed. Lennon took the joint and passed it to Ringo whom he called his “royal taster.” Ringo smoked the entire thing, not knowing the tradition of sharing the joint between people. In response, X rolled a joint for each of The Beatles and they smoked.

  7. 7.  In 2220 A.D. mankind has conquered the solar system and is reaching out into space. Earth is ruled by a World Government, with headquarters in Delhi. Space stations have been established on many planets of the Solar System. One of these stations is a high security prison on Io, a moon of Jupiter. Here, the twelve most dangerous criminals are held up in suspended animation. Each one of them is an expert in their field. When a meteorite strike hits the base, destroying its security system, these criminals break free and escape. The Earth Government assigns its top law enforcer, X, the mission to arrest these fugitives. X is the son of one of the Earths top scientists and the grandson of the ruler of the Parajeevs from the thirteenth dimension, a race of beings ten million years ahead of us in civilization. He was brought up in a monastery in Ladakh, and he has yogic powers of concentration. Apart from Y, who portrayed X in the series, Rahul Bose, Parizad Zorabian and Tom Alter and Z portrayed other significant characters.

  11. 11.  X drew inspiration from Chinese communist propaganda art that they saw in art galleries on Melrose Avenue, and recruited artist Chris Bilheimer, to create the cover. The band aimed for the cover to be "at once uniform and powerful". After listening to the new music on his computer, Bilheimer took note of the lyric "And shes holding on my heart like a ____ _______“ and somehow replicated it on the cover. Influenced by artist Saul Basss poster for the 1955 drama film The Man with the Golden Arm, Bilheimer created it. Although he felt that red is the "most overused color in graphic design", he felt that the "immediate" qualities of the color deemed it appropriate for use on the cover, explaining: "Im sure theres psychological theories of it being the same color of blood and therefore has the powers of life and death...And as a designer I always feel its kind of a cop-out, so I never used it before. But there was no way you couldnt use it on this cover."

  23. 23.  The X, also known as Two Sons, Lost Son and The Running Father is one of the parables of Jesus. It appears in only one of the Canonical gospels of the New Testament. According to the Gospel of Luke (Luke 15:11-32), a father, in response to his demands, gives the younger of his two sons his inheritance before he dies. The younger son, after wasting his fortune (the word Z means wastefully extravagant), goes hungry during a famine. He then repents and returns home, where the father holds a feast to celebrate his return. The older son refuses to participate, stating that in all the time the son has worked for the father, he did not even give him a goat to celebrate with his friends. His father reminds the older son that everything the father has is the older sons, but that they should still celebrate the return of the younger son as he has come back to them. Dutch artist Rembrandt has also depicted this in one of his noted paintings, The Return of the X.

  27. 27.  X was born on 7 October 1968, in Wellingborough, Northamptonshire. At birth, his left eye was fixed shut; the doctors determined that the eye was paralyzed and that the condition was permanent. Xs parents took him to an eye specialist, who suggested a muscle graft. X underwent five eye operations before he was six years old. X‟s father, a chemical equipment salesman, was hired by a firm in Scotland shortly after his sons birth and the family lived there until X was seven. During this time X had to wear a patch over his eye. He has stated that the last surgery was "botched", giving him a drooping eyelid. Who?

  35. 35.  The original cover art angered some Hindus, who felt the artwork (taken from Hindu imagery and altered by giving the dancing figure a cats head) was offensive. The image depicts Lord Krishna (with a cats head) dancing on the head of the snake demon, Kāliyā, a popular episode from Stefan Sagmeisters (designer of the cover) childhood. The band had been unaware of the source of the artwork, and the record company apologized, and changed the artwork to a revised version.

Together, they form the Philosophical Society, discussing such "great thinkers" as Nietzsche, matters of existentialism, and the relevance of time. X enjoys experiencing new things. To name a few adventures, X made a video game for himself in one episode and performed nude in a fashion show in another (possibly an homage to "The Emperors New Clothes).

  47. 47.  The sword in Ps hand carries an abbreviated inscription H-AS OS; this has been interpreted as an abbreviation of the Latin phrase Humilitas occidit superbiam. In the painting, P is perturbed, "his expression mingling sadness and compassion." The decision to depict him as pensive rather than jubilant creates an unusual psychological bond between him and Q. The artist completes this bond by depicting himself as Q.

  51. 51.  A blues song of anonymous authorship, “X” is a tale of sin, sexual ruin and a tortured soul. The song has been recorded by various artists including Bob Dylan and Dolly Parton. Many debate the true meaning of the title, arguing that it could be a euphemism for a whorehouse, a jail, a slave plantation or a specific establishment in the French Quarter. The most famous version of the song was by the British- Invasion-era band Y, who maintained it was an old English folk song emigrants brought to America (originally it was a Soho brothel instead of a New Orleans one).

On his deviantART profile page, he notes that he "created X in 2004 because I cant help but draw stupid looking characters to spew out my stupid ideas." One of the earliest X comics, #15, was posted by Wilson on on January 26, 2005. A variant of the comics title is first mentioned in #121, in which one character sells cotton candy, and explains that it is made of "X", after which the other character replies: “_________!? Hot damn! Ill take 4“.

  97. 97.  X, world-weary, looks at the bust of blind, humble Y, on which he rests one of his hands. This has variously been interpreted as the man of sound, methodical science deferring to Art, or as the wealthy and famous philosopher, wearing the jeweled belt given to him by Alexander the Great, envying the life of the poor blind bard. The interpretation of methodical science deferring to art is that Xs right hand, in which he held notes in, traditionally the favored hand, is on the bust of Y, is higher, and painted lighter than the left hand on the gold chain given to him by Alexander. The painting forms the central theme of Joseph Hellers 1988 novel “Picture This”.

After his uncle‟s death, the British took away the lands he owned and reduced the pension to 3,000 rupees a year out of which X‟s share was 60 rupees.

It was written by Y himself, while in his parents barn. Y commented that he wrote the song "in quite a linear way", explaining that "I wrote the first verse, the second verse and Id got to the end of the first chorus and for the first time ever I thought, Theres no interesting way to add to this guys story. It felt weak". Y stated that the song was "definitely drawn from various experiences Ive had in relationships breaking up, and in the parts of the more reflective parts of the song, in the aftermath and the memory of those different relationships and what they were and how they broke up and whats going on in everyones minds. Yeah, so its an amalgam of different feelings but not completely made up as such".

"My Own Boy, Your sonnet is quite lovely, and it is a marvel that those red- roseleaf lips of yours should be made no less for the madness of music and song than for the madness of kissing. Your slim gilt soul walks between passion and poetry. I know Hyacinthus, whom Apollo loved so madly, was you in Greek days. Why are you alone in London, and when do you go to Salisbury? Do go there to cool your hands in the grey twilight of Gothic things, and come here whenever you like. It is a lovely place and lacks only you; but go to Salisbury first. Always, with undying love, Yours, X"
