I think that's a "to the left", don't you?

RIGHT, this comm has been dormant for TOO LONG. Arbitrarily speaking in behalf of all the mods, I want to announce our glorious return. We want field observations. We want self-defined celeb* smells. Re-acquaint yourselves with Da Rules and have at it! Post, dammit, post!

*Anyone anyone's heard of ever. We're not proud.

It's taken me a whole week to get over this, but here goes! [Feb. 11th, 2006|01:54 am]

Smell info on comedians Simon Pegg (star of Spaced, Hippies, Shaun of the Dead and more!) and Adam Bloom (star of not much, but he's lovely)

Date and Place of Observation
Friday, 3rd Feb at 1.30 a.m. approx at the Comedy Store, London

Myself and fellow community mods alchemywow and porlock were on one of our regular stalking missions enjoying a night out at the Comedy Store. At corking Thursday night midnight show Maxwell's Full Mooner, to be precise, whereat Mr Pegg was doing his first standup gig for 8 years. Funny, it was, but that's not what this post is about, is it?

Aaaaaanyway, having left the valiant porlock in charge of the drinks whilst we went for a wee-wee, me and alchemywow accosted Mr Adam Bloom, standup comic and all round lovely geezer, lurking down the back of the venue and decided to pop the question. He did mull it over for a bit, so we told him that The Mighty Boosh had answered us no probs and suddenly it was game on! Mr Bloom, for the record, smells of Concern, Worry and Venn diagrams, and is, by common consensus, the nicest famous-type person we've ever met. He chatted to us for ages despite us being mental strangers who want to know what he smells like and who also quizzed him in a thoroughly comedy geek manner about the scripting for sitcom he was in almost ten years ago. Bless.

So, on to Mr Pegg. Adam Bloom did the accosting, having asked us if we'd like to pop the question to Pegg as well. Pegg was in a bit of a hurry, so Adam Bloom physically restrained him for us, alchemywow did the "Mr Pegg, sir, we have a quick question for you" routine and, quick as you like, he told us he smells of Baby and off he went! Thrilling!

We didn't make any trouser-based observations, alas. Simon Pegg was clad in something roomy and Adam Bloom had a parka on. Andrew Maxwell, our host for the evening, did have a simulated wank onstage, but the fine detail was hidden under his fiendish warlock cloak.

(i)Name of subjects:
Keith Murray and Chris Cain of We Are Scientists

(ii)Date and venue of observation:
16th January 2006, Subterranean, Chicago, IL USA

(iii)Why were you even looking?
Because I am an upstanding citizen of totheleft_ and I think we should be told.

(iv)To the left or to the right?
To the right. Subtly, on both counts. Evidence as follows.Collapse )

(v) Any additional information:
This band are deliberately misleading with their name, as they are not actual scientists. If they were, they would have revealed a proper dinosaur as their favourite when asked. Mr. Murray is also wanted for crimes of impersonating one Drew Babyshambles. Further evidence.Collapse )

Upon the inquiry as to scent, Keith revealed that he smells of "yellow cake." My observation would place him closer to the "hazelnut coffee" family. Chris described his scent as that of "a library." My research could not produce credible evidence to dispute this claim.

narie assisted in inquiries and is the sole collector of photographic evidence. She also got a kickass t-shirt. We both got badges. We expect our hearing to make a complete recovery in time for our next assignment.

It's the time of year when there's a decided nip in the air and many a young man decides to get the woolly jumpers out and leave the ball-crusher trousers in the summer end of the wardrobe. This could be for purposes of comfort, or, indeed, this could be due to a shrinkage of the parts caused by the drop in temperature and an understandable reluctance to advertise said shrinkage to an unkind world.

Nevertheless, there are a brave, brave few still prepared to - erm - fly the flag, as it were, in the skinny jeans department and we at totheleft_ salute you for it. So, on with the observations:

Name of subject
Noel Fielding, comedian about town, whom some of you may know from popular TV and radio comedy series, The Mighty Boosh. Possesser of the Loveliest Hair in Comedy. His scent is already recorded in a previous totheleft_ post. By his own admission, he smells of "duchess".

Date and venue of observation
12th November 2005, at the Amused Moose comedy club, Soho, London

Why were you even looking?
Well, he would keep stroking his stomach and general belt area during his performance. Ostensibly, he was telling jokes, but I did begin to suspect that his real purpose was to draw the audience's attention to his supertight skinny black jeans

To the left or to the right?
A pronounced "to the left" bias. Independent verification from tosayok and her friend Vix. Fellow community mods alchemywow and porlock were there present too, but porlock seemed mostly to be having a "look at his lovely hair!" moment and alchemywow was hiding behind her own necktie for reasons we needn't go into here. Nevertheless, they may have made observations of a groinal nature too and I'm sure they'll comment to that effect if that is the case.

Any additional information, such as suspicions of padding and/or any other artificial enhancements
With jeans that tight? No way. He'd have done himself physical damage if he'd tried to fit anything else down there. The ambient temperature in the sweaty Soho cellar wherein these events took place was several degrees above the somewhat Baltic weather conditions prevailing in the dark, November night outside, so I doubt shrinkage was an issue either. Am driven to conclude that what we saw was exactly as Nature intended. In which case, props to Nature!

I cannot express the joyous occasion discovering this community has become. Not only do I find a group of people interested in and willing to share observations on (mostly) indie-ish boys groins, but also you are as interested in the scent of these esteemed entertainers.

I asked some David Tennant fangirls who had been at the Harry Potter premiere what he smelt like and THEY DIDN'T KNOW! What is wrong with them??? They asked for autographs, why didn't they JUST ASK? I'd rather have a smell than a bleeding signature!

I had not really thought that careful observation would be of much use outside of the realm of day dreaming, but now I have a mission to share with you. I am on the case as of now.

Oh and hello!

Smell Updates [Oct. 7th, 2005|11:31 am]

[mood |amusedamused]

Who: The League of Gentlemen, British comedy ensemble
When: 3rd October, 19.30
Where: Oxford Street HMV, signing copies of their film just out on dvd.

I was rather pleased to be able to interrogate a full compliment of The League of Gents, including Jeremy Dyson who writes but does not perform with them. They were all very jovial and took to the questioning very well. Their answers were as follows:

Jeremy Dyson - "roses"
Mark Gatiss - "rosemary"
Reece Shearsmith - "bergamot"
Steve Pemberton - "manly musk"

I feel Mr Pemberton let the side down there, but perhaps his scent is so overwhelmingly manly that there simply is no room left for more complex scents.
