    Q. Dear Oracle, I know that Elbow has been supporting Coldplay in the last few weeks and I was wondering, are Chris Martin and Guy Garvey friends? If so how long have they known each other and is it possible they'll collaborate in the future?

    The Oracle replies:

    They get along well and have known each other for quite a while now not just from Elbow playing as special guests on the recent tour dates. Chris interviewed Guy back in 2004 but as they started to get attention on the unsigned circuit around the same time back in 1998, their paths crossed many times over the years.

    A collaboration isn't likely although they're mutual friends and fans.

    Q. Dear Oracle, The Coldplay-shaped puppets are becoming a little dirty, don't you think?? :))

    The Oracle replies:

    All this touring is certainly taking it out of them isn't it? Hopefully they'll be treated to some pampering soon. Luckily the band are in better shape themselves!

    Greetings Paraguay! It was a U.K. Bank Holiday Monday so I was out cycling in the rain!

    Q. Dear Oracle, I live in the U.S. and have no idea what the expression "ton up" - used by R#42 in his blog 100 - means. I bet nobody else here does, either! So...what DOES it mean exactly and where does it come from?

    The Oracle replies:

    Roadie #42 is referring to his blog number as a ton is a slang term for a hundred. It originates from a measurement term also meaning one hundred.

    Q. I am desperate to find what's going out with my buddy and I can't call him or text him because I have a Prepaid cell phone and I can't waste my minutes because my phone is ONLY for emergencies. I think my he's mad at me. What should I do? Please help me. Thanks!~

    The Oracle replies:

    Gosh what did we do before mobile phones were invented...? How about you use a public payphone? Or given that you obviously have internet access, why don't you email him or send him a letter?
