    Q. Hi Oracle! I'm curious to know if the daily Exhibition Room entry is selected from the current day's submissions, or from all the submissions sent in so far. Or what. Thanks.

    The Oracle replies:

    Apparently the Curator will choose from all submissions; given it will only display on weekdays yet you can still submit at weekends, that makes sense. Seems we have a competitive Curator; there's already gloating since over 600 entries in less than 24 hours beats the number of questions I receive.

    Q. Hello Oracle! Yesterday, I was watching a Coldplay video on YouTube and the boys were playing You Only Live Twice. I'm sure that I had seen the name of this song before but I can't remember where. I looked for it on the Recordings but I couldn't find anything... Was it released as a single, or an EP, etc? Thanks!

    The Oracle replies:

    Coldplay used to play a cover of the Bond theme You Only Live Twice live around ten years ago (with a Goldfinger finale). The song was available on the Don't Panic E.P import; it's not widely available and as it wasn't a full release it's not been included in the Recordings section.

    Q. Hello Oracle :~) The other day Lone from Denmark asked about seeing Guy. Could it be Guy's twin?

    The Oracle replies:

    I suppose it could have been Guy's brother (not twin) who as I have mentioned before lives in Scandinavia. I actually suspect it was neither.

    Q. My son Henry who's 4 is having a flu jab tomorrow, my wife says that we should tell him, I think not, what do you suggest?

    The Oracle replies:

    Personally I think you should definitely tell him but don't make a fuss. If you don't tell him you run the risk of him not trusting you in the future. All you have to do to avoid potentially having anxiety whenever you leave the house is sit him down and explain very matter of fact what will happen and why. I hate injections and if you do too, you may be assuming he will have a fear. Try to act calmly while he is having it done. If he does show signs of distress just remember the flu jab doesn't hurt - perhaps a sting - but may be necessary for a mere few seconds of discomfort.

    Q. Hey Oracle, I don't know if this was ever asked before, but I've always wondered when watching some live Yellow videos what that guitar Chris likes to use is. That really cute, yellow, teardrop-shaped one? Thanks Oracle!

    The Oracle replies:

    It's actually named after the shape you like so much; it's called a Gibson Teardrop.

    Q. Hey there... I`m sure I saw Guy here in Sora, Denmark yesterday, though I got the sun direct in eyes. What on earth is he doing in this hole, when all Music-Mecca is in UK? OK we have -particularly - some young bands here, that is worth listen to!

    The Oracle replies:

    The only connection between Scandinavia and Guy yesterday was that he was at the a-ha show in London. As you know they hail from Norway but that's as close as he was to Denmark.
