Thursday 24/04/08

This is obviously not London Preppy. Too fucking jolly to be London Preppy. He's just a friend.

GONE

And this friend said:

So I'm going to Athens for the weekend and I thought I'd tell you this in person, because it's the decent thing to do. And if I sound too gay I'm not going to put this up. Which means I'll now get 35 anonymous comments saying "oh you sound too fucking gay"; but...that's it. Bye.

93 comments:

franck said...

Your friend seems really nice.

London Preppy said...

franck: Thanks. He's OK. He seems to be smiling a lot which I don't understand myself, but there you go

Brad said...

He looks so much like you too! But at least he sounds too guy and you don't.

London Preppy said...

brad: Too gay, right?

Brad said...

Yep - sorry.

Anonymous said...

What a strange accent

FireFawkes said...

He seems way too happy to be your friend (and I suspect he might be a gayer as well!)

Looks good though!

Anonymous said...

YEYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!! oh please london preppy do i have to even say it?....finally you have revealed u!...and its very diff to what i imagined, a lot more human, a lot more gay...a lot more friendly and open and i know you wont like this but u sound a lot more foreign.... is it that you want to keep a bit of mystery or is it that your insecure that your afraid of being rejected so u say its a friend?

Should Know Better said...

Not gay enough if you ask me. You need to get your friend into one of your harnesses or some skimpy shorts.

Dick Pics said...

i don't like him. he seems too happy. cut him off. and then give him to me. not that i like him or anything. i just want to play with him a bit.

Anonymous said...

You are hawt... Im flying to athens to stalk you this weekend.

Jamie said...

You couldnt of waited till the bells had (if) stopped?

Honestly LP.

Are you posting while your in Athens?

p.s. Your friend is hawt

AlwaysReadySF said...

HAHAHA!
definitely too fucking gay but also definitely very fucking cute :-)

Jeremy said...

is that how the greek accent sounds like?

London Preppy said...

anon: I know! Told you

firefawkes: Yeah, I don't like him really. Just an acquaintance

anon: It is my friend. This isn't me

should know better: Oh dear, who would ever wear such things. There are some right fags out there

London Preppy said...

London Preppy said...

dick: Cut him off or cut him up?

anon: Eeek

jamie: That was Mean's idea (filming)! That the bells should be going. I can't explain why

alwaysready: Thanks. He can be very straight acting but eventually he'll have to move or speak

jeremy: That's how a Greek accent sounds when you've lived in England for 10 years I guess

george said...

what the f#%k?!!! knife the guy with scotts dagger......LP is so much cooler....have fun in athens....good luck hiding the knee tatt......george

Alex said...

Is he from a scandinavian country, or Germany perhaps? It's a very deep-throated accent.

Anonymous said...

is your friend single?........

AlwaysReadySF said...

as someone else said on here, gay is good. not complaints from this side.
and i vote for the leather harness too ;-)

Maluminas said...

Be careful with your clone, he'll take over your life when the timing is right. He knows where the rusty dagger is. And Momo is his friend.

Steven said...

Only Liberace is gayer than this dude. Where's his glittery cape and piano?

Nah.

This dude isn't LP because he's wearing clothes and doesn't have the red stripe across his eyes.

seescapist said...

Well, I thought your friend would be cuter, but I didn't expect he would be that nice.

'Cute' is not a compliment in my dictionary, by the way.

Tim in Italy said...

Wait... no red blocks? Fully clothed? Smiling? Are you sure this is a friend of yours and not some bloke you pulled in off the street and offered 20 quid?

And the accent? I don't know... Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels? Snatch? Either way, it's hot!

London Preppy said...

goerge: It's true, this guy ain't cool at all. Look how fuckign nervous he is, Jesus

alex: Scandinavian? I don't care if you're just trying to flatter him, my friend likes that very much

maluminas: Nah, look at him. He can't hurt anyone

steven: Yep, this guy is dressed most of the time. What a loser

seescapist: My friend thanks you. (he thinks!)

Forehand Pass said...

Years from now, your, ahem, friend will appreciate sounding just slightly different from everyone else. It adds to the mystery and depth (even if there's none). It keeps people guessing.

"He" could be from anywhere in Central Europe (or elsewhere in this increasingly global world, really). Maybe he was born to Dutch parents on an English plane making an emergency pit stop in Hawaii. Or a international spy of mixed Greek-Icelandic heritage raised in Madagascar, with allegiance to no one flag. Hence the impossible-to-pin-down looks and accent.

The nervousness is sweet, but shows he's still a junior spy in training.

Trybaby said...

Wow, that kinda just blew my mind to a billion pieces!! I'm really quite unsettled.

Your 22 year old 'friend' doesn't act gay at all to me, unless by gay you mean retardedly friendly. But I do enjoy the fact that by the end of the video it seems like he's so filled with unbridled joy, that he can't handle it and is about to explode. So funny.

ps: bells do add to it

kim said...

no wonder scott doesn't like your mates; now we all see why

Brian said...

He sounds like he is from London.. with a beautiful voice... not gay at all I think...

Oldyeller said...

I can't view the vid cause the govt. where I work blocks such things, but have a good holiday. One last piece of advice--don't try to hide the tatoo--it will only make matters worse when the family eventually discovers it. Its part of what you are now.

Grace said...

Awww hes sooo cute can you send him to me in Birmingham!

Mike said...

I was SHOCKED to see a face uncovered on your blog, no less hear a voice and watch a live image!!!

What’s the world coming to…

Loved the smile at the end, though…

Have a great holiday.

michael01 said...

My, you do have bedroom eyes! Actually, your quite dishy friend does not strike me as "gay"--just a metro dude with, to my non-expert ear, a London accent. Of course, there are those bells... But I'd almost say he gives off an aura of U-class butch. If I'm hedging it's only because I'd need to hear more, and in a quieter setting. I hope this vid represents a future trend, though.

Anonymous said...

DAMO

YEEEEEY!!!!! Today is a special day!!!!! hahaa!
At bloody last!
Your freind is cool
Luv that shirt! :-)

Wish my voice had that clear diction, eastern european voices r the boiz noiz!

nick said...

The bells thing must be deliberate, right? Is it a John Donne reference? For whom is the bell tolling? Anyway have a good trip and good luck in Athens with your new tattoo!

If you want to see the output of the parser, uncomment the line. I used that quite a bit while I was debugging the parser.

BY23 said...

Pretty likeable guy, your friend :-)

fleetmonkey said...

I thought your "friend" had a bit of Geordie/Generic Northern in the accent as well.

Jim said...

In the states we have a saying (immortalized in Legally Blonde The Musical) "Gay or European?"

Your friend comes across as very European. And about as gay as every straight man I've met from Britain.

mr man said...

shockingly cute

Kevin said...

While your friend does seem jolly, maybe even happy, looking into his eyes, all i see is pain and sadness, and a life filled with tragedy that he keeps buried inside...life on the streets is like a trifular beat, it'll echo in ya head till you're dead on concrete.

Daver said...

Definitely mistook him for the only gay in the village bloke

Anonymous said...

Very brave! Well done.

Anonymous said...

Too fucking cute, more like.

Tell your "friend" that, would you?

-Tal

David said...

I think i watched this video around 30 times. I want to see more of your friend and his smile is really nice. Im going to go watch again.

Matty tbay said...

Awww you're adorable!

william said...

This is completely off topic, but my friend wants to know if you've read "The Immoralist," by Andre Gide. He thinks you would like it.

London Preppy said...

tim: Busted! Just a random idiot off the street...

forehand: I like all these options for my friend's background. And the junior spy thing is hilarious

tryababy: Ha ha, he is retardedly friendly. What an accurate description. That's what he does when he's nervous, he smiles. Nervously

kim: Scott is always bloody right, isn't he?

brian: That's very sweet, ha ha, never has his voice been described as beautiful, but thanks

London Preppy said...

oldy: That's not a bad point about the tattoo

grace: Address please, I'll pack him off

mike: That's right, another threshold innit

michael: More like "I haven't slept for 56 hours" eyes (see tomorrow's post). Might be a future trend yes

damo: Hmm...I don't know about diction, he was trying very hard you know. He usually mumbles

nick: I take no credit for the bells - Mean was directing

London Preppy said...

anon: I do not understand any part of this I'm afraid

by23: Nice one, thanks

fleetmonkey: Well he did live up North for 6 years

jim: Ha ha, let's hope no straight Brits are reading this (hello Mean)

mr man: Thank you :-)

daver: He is a bit queeny

London Preppy said...

anon: Yeah, it wasn't as hard as I thought in the end

anon: Cheers :-)

david: Ha ha. I would not like to be you right now - I would have shot the screen on the 7th time

matty tbay: Thank you!

Daver said...

I kid. I thought it was just an accent I was hearing. I guess I'm just uncultured as I'm North American, over-tanned and live at the beach.

London Preppy said...

william: No I haven't. I'll look it up. I don't judge a book by its title - no wait I do - but it sounds interesting

Dick Pics said...

if you cut him up he's of no use to me. after I'm done with him though you can do whatever you want to him.

Robert said...

That vid of your "friend" just made my day...he seems such a chipper and happy bloke...but usually those types are are crying on the inside - like clowns
love 'ya - ta!

London Preppy said...

robert: That's a very valid point. Also maybe by Kevin above, very well put

All i can say is..Thank you for doing that. :-P

London Preppy said...

anon: Excellent, thanks! I really enjoyed that

neb: You're welcome, was fun

Rogue said...

You are soooo fucking gay!

(not)

London Preppy said...

rogue: I'm happy with the 5-6/10 rating that Mean gave me. I think it's accurate

Anonymous said...

Its like John F. Kennedy, Jr. come back to life! You're voice is as hot as your face.

London Preppy said...

anon: Brilliant, that's the best compliment ever, thanks

Christopher said...

Nice umbrella.

Lincoln's Inn?

London Preppy said...

christopher: Ralph Lauren!

the one in your dreams said...

whomever your friend is, too gay or not gay enough, point to him for a nice smile and pleasant personality.

(or more points for good acting)

Craig said...

Thanks for revealing your good-looking friend for us (I think Mean put you up to it). Pretty gutsy on your part as you clearly have some issues regarding how we would react to hearing your voice. Not to worry. You're more endearing to us than ever.

London Preppy said...

the one: Nah, he's not acting, look at him! He's a wreck genuinely

craig: Thanks, that's sweet. My friend decided to face his fears - that's the basis of successful therapy, right?

Anonymous said...

So cool of you to do this! We finally get to meet the real "London Preppy"

Nicer than the persona

Gabriel said...

your friend's appearance on your blog really made my day. i never thought that day will come! have a good break.

London Preppy said...

anon: Cool, thanks. I might have to continue writing as London Preppy though, I wouldn't know how to do it differently

gabriel: Nice, and the comments have made mine. Thanks

Anonymous said...

so impressed that you did this! you really have moved on....

Graham said...

This is awful. That guy is sooooo nice and happy and friendly, he's definitely schizophrenic. That explains his overly symmetrical face!
Looks wise, he's obviously hot and he doesn't sound too gay at all really.

Now I know why you wanted to change your name and distance yourself from all things Greek. Your friend has basically been living his life in your shadow, living up north, emulating your style. It must be very worrying. Next he'll be tattooing himself with YOUR name!! Keep a close eye on him, thats my advice.

London Preppy said...

anon: Thanks! The question is, is there going back now?

graham: Ha ha, very good. I've always wanted a stalker, it seems that I've got one now. It's not as sweet as I thought...

Trybaby said...

Mmm I don't know, it seems like you've jumped the shark Johnny.

Daniel said...

Well, this is a smile inducing suprise...

What a lovely lad.

Just perfect in his gayness, jollyness and accentedness.

Is this the prelude to a big revelation in Athens over Easter?

Anonymous said...

Hi LP, does your accent get thicker when you're nervous? Because you seemed very nervous, not in a bad way though... Funny vid.

Rambunctious WhipperSnapper said...

Which means I'll now get 35 anonymous comments saying "oh you sound too fucking gay".

You clearly know your demographic too well.

And the way you said the whole Too fucking gay .... it was not only funny, it was Seinfeld funny. (somehow, in my book that's a complement.)

And your "friend". He's laughing. He's animated. He has hope. He's dressed. Are we to beleive that there is a world beyond nudity, sadness, hope and despair?

I think the medical marijuana has now taken over.

Anonymous said...

Your friend is both charming and animated. Thanks for sharing. I love your blog! Long live LP!

Anonymous said...

I know how to get rid of his cheeriness: put a red bar over his eyes.

I'm just sayin'...

Bale

London Preppy said...

trybaby: Who's Johnny? And what does the jump the shark comment refer to here? (I know what it means)

daniel: Definitely not!

anon: Nah, it's always thick I'm afraid. It get even worse when I'm angry though

rambunctious: If there is such a world, I don't want to know about it

anon: You're welcome

anon: It's a good thing he forgot his sunglasses in the office then before filming this eh

Trybaby said...

Darn should have said Fonzie, oh well, you can't be on all the time I suppose :/

A HA~! I knew you were eventually gonna pull it :D, now the world makes sense :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

Dory D said...

Why is the vidio gone!!

The Neighbors Will Hear said...

I'm sorry to see that you took it down. I watched it at work yesterday, but without the sound. I have always, always, always wanted to know what a moderately gay Greek filtered through ten years in England voice sounds like, and now I never will. Perhaps you could put it back up. From the visual, I can understand how you might be distressed that people would mistake your friend for you and, accordingly, think that you're a pleasant looking pleasant person, but if you put it back on, I promise to always think of you as a detached bastard with a hot body.

Rico said...

shit... I forget to check the blog ONE DAY and I miss the video of the century... :(

Bobby Vanquish said...

Someone once left a comment on my blog that said: "I have a feeling this is one of those posts that will come down tomorrow morning, so I'm glad I've read it now."

I would change it to - "I'm glad I got to see it..." :-)

AmateurHunk said...

Hey Preppy, nice to see a cheery side of your persona. You looked very cute.

London Preppy said...

to people enquiring: Sorry I took the video down. I want to maintain the theme of the blog so far and I'll continue with the pseudo-anonymity.

Saying that, I liked putting the video up and I appreciate the overwhelming response, so I will be posting more videos talking to the camera etc, but I will be taking them down eventually

kim said...

i'm just sorry for all those folk who missed it ... but then, maybe they're the lucky ones?

timbo said...

That guy was surprisingly relatable and endearing, as someone else mentioned. I think it was great to post that and also to take it away as well. That's a good marketing strategy to get more hits per day -- check back often or you may miss something because it's not going to be around infinitively!

London Preppy said...

timbo: Finally that stupid Marketing degree pays off!
