Andrew WTF June 10, 2010 7:48 PM   Subscribe

Wasn't there an FPP not too long ago linking to an interview in which Andrew WK admits he's a constructed personality played by several different guys? I seem to remember a lot of discussion and digging about it.

Is this even a MeTalk issue?

Yes.

It was established to my satisfaction that he was speaking figuratively in that interview.

Andrew WK and Lady GaGa need to mate so we can exile their offspring of sucjkitude somewhere.

Oh hey I think someone might have mentioned some musicians of whom jonmc disapproves.

It's worth noting that the post isn't precisely correct about Andrew WK "admitting" any of that - the multiple characters, et cetera. What he actually said in the video was:

“... [I] want to confess something to all of you. I - I'm actually not Andrew WK... [yadda yadda yadda] What I mean is that since that time, I have changed, and for any of you that happened to be there during that time, perhaps you have changed as well.”

For future reference, here's how to Google it.

jonmc only hates Andrew WK ironically. His hate for Lady Gaga is true.

Well, at least some of my memories correspond to reality.

And for the record, I actually looked at that thread and didn't think it was the one I was looking for.

after years on this site, i've yet to figure out what jonmc likes.

(unless, of course, he only likes to hate)

I think he really likes the Rolling Stones album Exile on Main St.

And he likes it a whole lot. But I don't really know of anything else.

Well, the Dictators. Also, cheap beer and junk food. But not expensive beer or liquor, because that's just for pretentious elitists who are lying to themselves about the fact that really they just want to get drunk.

Me-ouch! That's a "purr"fect putdown!

but he hates hipsters, right? so the beer and junk food can't be TOO cheap...

exile on main st does, in fact, rock the socks off.

He likes big butts, and he cannot lie.

He might actually be several different posters.

All of them haters though.

jonmc also likes drinking on rooftops.

I can assure you he is a single entity and is quite nice and fun in person.

What are they gonna say about jonmc? What are they gonna say? That he was a kind man? That he was a wise man? That he had plans, man? That he had wisdom? Bullshit, man!
