    Q. Hello, O wise and all-knowing Oracle. It's known that Roadie #42 has his own office at The Bakery, as far as I know and understand (at least is written in his blog #123). So, O dear Oracle, this is my question: do you also have your own office at The Bakery or at The Beehive?

    The Oracle replies:

    42's office is not in The Bakery; it's in the Beehive. I favour The Bakery myself and depending on what I'm doing have various places I sit ranging from a bean bag or a spare desk as I don't have my own office; I don't need one.

    Q. Hi Oracle, can you tell me what musical instrument plays at the beginning of the song Baba O'Riley by The Who? Thanks

    The Oracle replies:

    That happens to be my favourite song by The Who. I'm (sort of) reliably informed that the instrument is a "Lowrey Berkshire Deluxe TBO-1 organ using its marimba repeat feature".

    Q. Dear Oracle, I feel I need to lose a couple of pounds but I don't know how tell my parents. What should I say?

    The Oracle replies:

    It would really help with these types of questions to know more about you. You may be below your ideal weight for all I know... Ideal weight may depend on many factors. You may have medical conditions or family history that contribute. Let's say for argument's sake that you are overweight and are trying to shift a couple of pounds to feel fitter and healthier in which case I am sure your parents would welcome the idea. Or am I to assume that your parents make all your meals and that's why you don't want to tell them as they'd perhaps feel you're blaming them? Whatever your position I commend you for wanting to talk to your parents. Eating disorders are a big problem in society commonly kept secret so you won't be giving cause for concern by being open with them. Explain your reasons clearly for wanting to lose weight. I'd have been interested in hearing those myself! I don't actually agree with diets, I prefer the sensible eating approach. I'd say just watch what you eat without over (or under) eating. One thing to keep in mind is when we're growing up weight sometimes plays a huge part of how others look at us and judge - such is the nature of the magazines and shallow celebrity idolising culture - but never want to lose weight for that reason. Be happy with who you are and as long as you're healthy don't ever feel the pressure to drop a few pounds to fit in.

    Q. Hi Oracle. Can you ask the guys, their management, their families and crew if they have signed up to Hugh's Fish Fight? If they haven't ask them all nicely if they would take the time and trouble to go to www.fighfight.net and sign up. Thank you. If they could take to time and trouble to be a famous sign up that would be real great.

    The Oracle replies:

    Oops, it would seem you didn't check your typing of the link! Luckily I already know it from having signed the petition. By the way, I'm guessing you haven't noticed there's a link to it already on this very website in our hypnofeed ticker along the top of the home page.

    Q. Dear Oracle, I like this girl a lot. She is very beautiful and has a great personality, but I feel as though I am way out of my league. I am also scared of being rejected. Any tips on how I can tell her how I feel? Sincerely, Zach

    The Oracle replies:

    Hmmm, I think you mean that you think she's way out of your league. I hate the thought that someone is deemed out of someone else's league. I don't think it's true and people shouldn't ever think that. Sometimes it's only their good looks that people base that decision on; confidence is actually far more attractive.

    I don't know what you look like and I don't care because although I understand your fear of rejection, no-one likes that feeling, try to look at it this way... we don't all fancy every single person we see so it's not rejection it's more that we might not fit their type. That said, people are attracted to others for all manner of reasons: personality, charm or sense of humour etc... so just tell her how you feel. Unless she already has a boyfriend of course. I guess you could try a different approach if you feel it would help, maybe write her a letter or just casually invite her along to something and if she agrees you could wait until you go out to talk to her.

    Q. Hey Mr. Oracle, at 2:13 how could Chris do


    The Oracle replies:

    I assume you're referring to what looks like Chris giving his guitar away? What you can't see in that shot, because of the angle and the dark, is the roadie below who catches it. There are gaps between all stages and the audience with walkways for access.
