Questions Answers
Mr. Posford. I Just want to let you know I am a huge fan. Your music, and projects you have been involved in have been hugely influential to me. The soundscapes you have created have helped change me through the years, and for that I have always wanted to say thank you. My question is what artists and music have influenced you, or do you enjoy listening to? So many artists... we often list them in the album credits... How about i make a Spotify playlist that shares some of my influences & what i enjoy listening to?
At your NYC Shpongle LIVE show at Hammerstein ballroom on Halloween 2011, I may have gotten a bit too "Shpongled" and decided to join you and the band up on stage not once, but twice. I wrongly thought the entire show was the culmination of my whole life and that I was going to be transitioning on to another dimension once the show ended. The first time the security was really nice to me and let me back in, but in my altered state of mind I figured I should go back up for a second go. Security was not so nice this time and dragged me out leaving me to wander the streets of New York Shpongled beyond all belief. Primarily, I want to apologize for making such a rude entry into your grand production... As for my question: Do you often listen to and/or produce your own music under the influence of psychedelics? Or are you naturally attuned to creating such incredibly mind bending music without the aid of substances? I think that one is able to draw from the experiences of the past, which is enough to help inspire creativity in the present... But to work a computer whilst under the influence is too much of a Brain Bocca... so i stay off them whilst actually working.,...
Can you briefly describe the sound collection process for an album? I mean, do you go out in the street, cave, or wilderness with a microphone? I have a handheld recorder made by zoom which i take with me when i go somewhere that i suspect might contain a rich seam of sonic ore - India, Bali, Japan etc. ... And i take as many recordings as possible. With some (like in India my ex-girlfriend and i recorded the singer and various samples that made it onto Ineffable Mysteries) it works very well... other times i will get the recordings 'home' and find that it is all wind noise... and i already make plenty of that myself!
Wow, so that was an original sample! Amazing. I had always assumed it came from a sample compilation. Where did you find that singer? How did it happen? For the 1st two records we used sample CDs, but around the 3rd we decided it's much better to use only our own recordings... My ex-girlfriend and i found the singer through our rickshaw driver in Jaipur, India... we went to a local music shop and recorded what we could, before discovering the singer and inviting him back to our hotel room to record him properly... i gave him a lo string drone and a soft beat to sing along to... The story is in the CD booklet i believe...
Greetings Simon. Thank you for a great new album and a whole career of great music! You've influenced modern trance music in many ways that most listeners probably don't realize. What's your opinion on the current genre of trance and psy-trance? What do you see as the future of Shpongle and the future of Simon Posford? More big live shows at festivals? DJ sets? Something completely new? I can't really offer an opinion on the current genre of pay-trance as i don't listen to it anymore. About 10 years ago it seemed to me that the music was sort of imploding - it was all starting to sound the same with very little innovation... The same basslines, the same Kik sounds and very little unique defining character that separated not just different artists, but different tracks... Very quickly i got jaded by the scene and lost interest in music that didn't appear to be progressing anywhere new... The trance musicians in the early and mid 90s had already performed all those tricks, played those riffs, and over-used those sounds... So if you show me the current innovators, i'll be better able to answer...
Do you use entheogens while actually in the studio during production? I have done... but it has never been conducive to actually progressing with the track we are working on... it ends with me on the sofa, listening to tunes and spacing out... which is exactly what we make Shpongle for! But to actually make the music i need to be able to follow thought processes... Raj will usually give each tune "The Acid Test" when i am close to mixing it...
making first contact with an extraterrestrial species? For this i think the best way is to use a chemical key, that opens the door to other universes & dimensions, allowing you to explore for a brief time... although it is difficult to bring back the treasures you can find there...
What's your normal life like? Is it like the average persons? Or do you do something different like shop at farmers markets or anything that would differentiate someone? Unremarkable. I live in a small town, i go to supermarkets buy junk food and consume it in bed while watching junk TV. Those are the good days. Other days i am racked with guilt at achieving nothing but completing a whole season of 24 on Netflix... my studio is calling but i'm not listening. Some days i'm typing absolute drivel into my laptop, humbled by the fact that a few people somewhere actually are mildly interested in what i have to say. Very occasionally i am on a stage in front of thousands of people... but that isn't really me... I'm out of my body by that point. I wish i could be out of my body when my physical form is sitting uncomfortably on a plane, about to be probed by an un-enlightened security guard who gropes people in an airport for a meagre wage. We are all the same but different... aren't we?
So what is the Kugla effect? The song titles on each album offer a lot of visual representation of the journey one goes through while listening to your music. How does that process come about? I imagine Raja Ram laying on a couch spitting out angelic banter while you're working away. That is very much how we work :) Raj fills books and books with drawings and entertains me with stories about growing up as a young Jew in Melbourne in the 40s... he tries to make me laugh & put me off my concentration, so sometimes i'll stick a microphone in front of him while he does it, to provide more sonic fodder for the track. He once told me about a housekeeper his family had called Mrs Kugla who cooked with preposterous amounts of oil... Even to boil an egg she would use pints of the stuff... One evening Raj decided to cook dinner at my house, and whilst it was delicious, he had definitely studied at Mrs Kugla's school of cooking... i started calling him "Mrs Kugla" as a joke. There are many boring hours during the making of an album, where i am engrossed in programming on the computer and Raj is clearly getting impatient and twitchy, so he will come up with a few ridiculous song titles or anecdotes that will lead to song titles...
Any chance for us to see Rajs drawings? Sure... they are all over the CD booklet! LOL... I might photograph a few also.
What's the story of how you met Raja Ram? We met at Butterfly studios, enjoying some home-cooked Indian food with the other artists that were recording there. We became instant friends and went to many parties and festivals together, making music under a variety of names. Raj provides the inspiration and running commentary, while i compose all the parts on the computer. It's a winning combination! If i can get him to stop talking for a moment :P
He does have a way with words. He certainly does... he is a cunning linguist, you might say...
Could you please ask Raja how to grow such a majestic mustache? I believe we posted a video explaining: Link to vk.com
What psychedelic experience/drug has influenced your musical composition and creativity the most? Marijuana.
What is your favorite song you have produced? Shpongle - And the Day turned to Night. Younger Brother - Your Friends Are Scary. Hallucinogen - Shamanix.
> Shpongle - And the Day turned to Night. Younger Brother - Your Friends Are Scary. Hallucinogen - Shamanix.
Is there any truth to a US live band tour? I recall you hinted at a live show at Red Rocks during Feed the Rocks. Also, your sunrise set in the Negev Desert a couple years ago blew my mind something great. Thanks for being the man! None at all. We will never tour with the band - it's too many people, too expensive, and too complicated. But we all would love to do a couple of one-off shows in the US... Red Rocks being one of them. If we can find anything exciting, fun and different that will persuade the 13 musicians we employ in the band to all give up their day jobs for a moment (which range from touring with Further, Bjørk, playing West End shows, to writing scores for 300 musicians in Dubai) then it becomes feasible... but most of the time it's just not practical, I'm sorry.

Thanks for doing this AMA Simon! What's your favourite genre/artist that people would find surprising? Probably the album "Breakfast in America" by Supertramp... part of the soundtrack of my childhood... I've always loved The Cure since i was 13...
What inspired you to include a tribute to Pink Floyd's On the Run in your most recent album? I turned to my friend at the Atlanta show a few weeks ago and said "is that, is that Pink Floyd???" Then I hear you say something like, "here's some Pink Floyd for ya!" Good times. In Atlanta is actually was Pink Floyd... with a Kik drum underneath... I have written many tracks inspired by On The Run... it's a great piece!
When are you going be working with Ott next? Ott and i recently discussed working on something... he lives quite far away though.
Are you performing at Burning Man this year? If not, do you plan to in the future? Working on it, but it's looking unlikely right now.
How much of your music is sampled vs composed? Like are the horn parts in "my head feels like a frisbee" sampled from something else is or did you and raja compose it? That was one of the last commercially available samples we used... We probably tweaked it around quite a bit, but a couple of times i have identified the original samples on other tunes... so eventually we realised, "Wow - everybody is using samples! Let's never use them again... and only record our own stuff from now on."
Follow up: who played the bass clarinet and bari parts on ineffable mysteries? was it raja or just some virtual instrument? I wrote that on the keyboard, using Vienna Instruments for the sound.
1) You always have an awesome bass tone, usually carrying the song, what machine makes that guy? 2) Any good DMT stories? 1..Whatever is convenient... On the first album i strung a massive elastic band across a wooden chair and used that... Often i will play bass guitar, sometimes i'll play the sh101 or another synth... Moog is good... 2... Yes, loads!
Hi, Thanks for doing this! What is your creative process? To clarify: When making music, do you start with some kind of a seed, an idea, or even emotion? Or do you start de novo, trying anything and expanding it when you start to feel it? What layer do you prefer to start with (bassline? main theme?) Amost always i begin with a blank canvas. Once i've chosen a tempo and a key, i like to start with the drums, then bassline, then synths and vocals and other stuff... I'll usually work with whatever is easiest and to hand: if a synth isn't plugged in then i won't use it... but if there is a crisp packet lying around and a microphone plugged in, i'll use that... I'm fundamentally lazy.
Mr Posford, Your music uses influences from cultures from all over the world. I have never run into another shpongler in the wild here in the us.So I was wondering what countries have given you the biggest reception to your music? Where are some of your largest concerts held? Without a doubt, Israel. Then there are pockets around the world: Russia, Japan, Colorado, Hungary...
Haha awesome! Hopefully you tried out the experiment to feel your nose a few feet in front of your face. It's such an unexpected experience. Again, thanks for the new album. It's nice to hear the finished project after all of those shows on the Masquerade tour. Stay Shpongled :::) I tried the hand one many years ago... It's extremely disconcerting!
Simon, I have every album that you and your music collaborations have released. I have to admit though, I have paid for very few of them. As someone that owns your own record label what is your opinion on piracy? How do you think it has affected your music and label? Don't get me started! Really?
Simon, What is your favorite type of pie? Also, what other types of music do you listen to on the reg? 3.14159265359 ... What's the reg?
I remember seeing half a promise of a new Hallucinogen album on the Twisted forums long time ago. Will it ever happen? Thank you for being great! Bought the new album, and can't wait to see you on the Troxy in October! Half a promise yes! The truth is i don't know if i will do another Hallucinogen album... I notice with Shpongle that some people's reaction to a new album is "I'm disappointed - it doesn't sound like my favourite earlier album" or "I'm disappointed it sounds too much like earlier albums"... in any case there is so much baggage associated with previous albums that it can weigh you down, so i'm more likely to release under another name... maybe even 'Simon Posford' :)
Who are some of the newer electronic music artists that you enjoy? Depends what you mean by new... Does Delia Derbyshire count?
E: favorite ways to process vocals? Favourite was to process vocals... mmm i spend not hours doing this, but possibly days! I love processing... If i'm feeling exceptionally brave, i might dig out Kyma, otherwise it's usually plug-ins... UAD, Waves, AutoTune, SugarBytes, Reaktor... for Filtering i'll use my hardware MS20 or Moog Voyager (or the UAD moog in software), for compression my hardware Distressor or LA-3A are unbeatable... For reverb, the Eventide H3000 or Lexicon PCM 91 hardware units, or Altiverb and UAD EMT plates in software... EQ my BAE audio 1028 or Thermionic Culture Rooster cover the hardware... Software would be UAD - Never or SSL or Sony Oxford. For mangling i usually use Reaktor.
Hi Simon, You recently posted a video on your Facebook page of a Logic Pro session, I beleive it was one of your new tracks. This session had over 200 tracks in it, is this normal for you guys to produce a song with so many tracks? Yes... Normally we have between 130 - 250 tracks before either the computer or my head caves in... On one tune i remember recording 75 tracks of guitar!! Of course we only used about 12...
Is Logic what you use primarily? Do you use Ableton as well? I use Logic in the studio and Ableton on the stage.
I'm a huge fan of Shpongle and Younger Brother in particular (like tons of folks here on this IAmA). What do you think of the Israeli crowd? What do you think is the reason Twisted and Psybient in general are so insanely popular down here? My biggest fans! I think there are possibly many reasons why psy-trance took off so massively in Israel, too long to go into here... but it's to do with oppression, national service in the army, escaping authoritarianism but through a heavily bonded bunch of people that leave the army and go to places like Goa, & experience freedom and counterculture with their friends...
What does a good idea taste like? Deliciously sweet, but not sickly... slightly tangy with surprise and a full-bodied satisfaction. William James describes somebody on laughing gas or laudanum or something who discovers the secret of the Universe... He fully understood the divine plan, why we are here and the answer to everything... luckily he had a pen close by and managed to scribble down his thoughts before they were lost forever... When he finally sobered up, he rushed to see what pearls of wisdom he had captured... on a piece of paper, he had written "A smell of petroleum prevails throughout."
Is your October gig in London Troxy a full live experience like the one in the Roundhouse or a dj set like last year's Twistival? I absolutely enjoyed Twistival, but would be pretty stoked if it was a live concert! It is one of the rare full band shows...
How is your relationship with Ott currently? What is the reason he split from the Twisted Label? (I understand if you would like to refrain from answering this one) We are still friends... there were no hard feelings and Twisted are proud to part of Ott's transition from recording engineer to successful musician.
Any future plans for Shpongle? What's next, album/sound wise? Any anniversary treats coming up? We are already talking about Shpongle 6!
How did you meet Michele Adamson? What's she like? I almost ran her over with my car leaving a party. She's one of my best friends.
What do you feel like when you're playing for a group of people and you look out over the crowd and just see a ton of teenagers zoned out on ecstasy and LSD at your shows. I mean, I personally am glad that MDMA and LSD exist on this Earth because I think they can be a positive influence when used correctly by the right people, but I also know that they are abused to ridiculous, extreme lengths every single weekend at shows across America. I think you make amazing music and I wouldn't want you to stop, but has there ever been a point where you look out at your crowd and think to yourself that for once in your life you'd like a play a show to a crowd that isn't 6 pills deep and completely zoned off various amphetamines, research chemicals and piperazines? I don't mind. I certainly don't condemn people for escaping their usual reality for a few hours... It works for me :::) Everything in moderation...INCLUDING moderation! I'd rather play to a crowd on LSD, or psychedelics, than a crowd on amphetamines or stimulants.
Simon, you have influenced how my roommate and I live our life more than any other source. What sources influenced you early in life to become the producer you are today? Robert Anton Wilson. More than a particular person however, i would say it's the friends we hold dear, the natural world around us, the books we read, the music we listen to, the stories we share and the culture that we absorb that influence us... Try to dive deep into the pool of creativity that mankind has sprung... and revel in Nature and Nurture...
I have seen you perform at the aggie and the Mishawka in fort collins and i have also seen you perform at red rock. You shows are all vary unique and each had its own touch, from the black light dancers at the aggie to the masquerade set up at red rocks. You have done a lot of visual artistry with your shows. Who does the Lights for your shows? Are you a big part of the visual performance? When you set up for a show, do you mainly use turntable, or do you incorporate other gadgets into your sets? DO you also do midi controller sets? What would be a normal Sphongle DJ set up any what would be a extravagant set up? For home production i know you work closely with Raja Ram, who is Bad Ass by the way. I was wondering what recording tech. do you use, both digital and analogue(Mic's, AMP's, Synths, D.A.W.'s, vst's... ect) Do you find any Big differences between the use of analogue and Digital and how do you like to incorporate these into your producrtion style and music? I'm not a massive part of the visual look... Zebbler has done visuals for the Shpongletron tours, and Xendarboh for the Masquerade tour. On stage i use Ableton running on a laptop with an Akai MIDI controller, an SH101 analog synthesiser, Eventide Time Factor and Eventide Space FX units. I tried using an OP-1, but didn't get much joy from it. The computer runs 10 outputs into a mixing desk, which i tweak and arrange on the fly. Occasionally i'll do a DJ set with good old fashioned CDJs, but this is increasingly rare.
Lastly what tools do you use to master? Other then your ear of corse, that is always number one haha. What is your home studio like, and do you use it for mastering or do you tend to go and master at other studios? I like analogue & digital. I love my BAE audio pre-amps, Distressor compressors, Eventide, Lexicon, Sh101, OScar, SH5, Moog voyager, Arp 2600, and Alesis Quadraverb. I run Logic on a Mac. For plug-ins i use UAD, Waves, Soundtoys, Melodyne and Native Instruments.
A mastering engineer! Another set of ears is vital... and not a mix engineer, either... I use Kevin Metcalfe at Soundmasters, UK.
Who would you pick as the emissary of our species if we're ever contacted by aliens? Great question!! I'd happily send Raja Ram... the right combination of Love, Humour, Fun, knowledge of art and music, and smooth talking...
Hi Simon, I'm a huge fan (my username is part of a line from a Younger Brother song). Can't wait to hear the new album! Where has been your favorite place to play in the US? How did you and Raja Ram meet? Colorado... and I answered the Raja Ram question earlier...
Thanks for all the great music over the years, Simon! I have only one question: Where did you get the audio of that hippie guy from "Even Dwarves Start Small?" The guy who doesn't like to work too often unless it's for something groovy... That was from a documentary about The Isle of Wight festival... in the 70s i think... the sample was from a carpenter who helped build the stage. I'm sure it's on YouTube... funny documentary, complete with a desperate promoter getting on stage and telling crowd to "F*ck Off!" and warnings about bad acid etc...
How is Raj doing? :) He is good... He's going out for Pizza with his grand-daughter tonight, i believe...
What Shpongle album do you and Raja Ram sit back and listen to the most? I will usually listen to whatever i've just completed a lot, until mastering... by the time it is released i have stopped listening. Occasionally i'll hear something in someone's car, for example, years later and for the first time i'll be able to hear it without all the mistakes and errors in judgement that i was so concerned about at the time... If i was going to put on a shpongle album right now, it would be the new one...
What's some of your favorite music you're listening to right now? Trentemoller, Flanger, Placebo, massive attack... i'm into audiobooks right now... David Sedaris, Alan Partridge...
Younger Brother has been one of my favorite groups to listen to over the last couple of years. I know the vocal tracks on the Last Days of Gravity were some of the most popular. Vaccine switched to a style that was much more focused on vocals, and a more mainstream sound. Has that effected the popularity of Younger Brother? Did Ruu Campbell write a lot of the lyrics for the songs? Ruu wrote the lyrics yes. I don't know how you measure popularity... We have only ever done what inspires us at the time... back then it was Indie Bands, now it is Electronic music again... who knows where we will end up. I have little time to work on YB, with my Shpongle duties... and Benji is now CEO of a multi-million dollar app company!
Have you ever seen someone frown at a Shpongle concert? From my experience at one I believe it is the happiest environment and people you can ever be around. Still the best night of my life. No, but i don't like it when people in the front row are just staring at me like dogs being shown a card trick!
Does the Shpongle "mascot" have a name? (Kind of like how Iron Maiden's mascot is named Eddie.) We just call it "the shpongle mask"
As someone who also recently turned their project into a live band I have a few questions to ask... What is your decision process for deciding what stems you separate for the backing tracks? What performance advantages come from a 20+ channel ableton mix? Also what's your workflow like for transcribing the sheet music for the string players? -Supersillyus. Ahhh, Supersillyus! How are you doing? I like to split the stems into Kik, Bass, Hats, Drums Lo, Drums Hi, Perc Lo, Perc Hi, Synths Lead, Guitars, Vocals, Strings, Horns, FX, Pads, Synths other... i'll space it over 16 outputs into a mixer, and this allows me to mix on the fly - to mute stuff or start with different parts or whatever and to bring out certain parts. As for the score, i can't read music so Harry Escott our cello player will transcribe the string parts, and Pete Callard our guitarist will do the guitar parts. All the musicians do their own notation once we have discussed what they are going to play.
A while ago I read 'the Night Circus' by Erin Morgenstern after seeing you recommend it, and massively enjoyed it. What did you like about that book, and what else would you recommend to the Shpongled reader? I liked the magic... the atmosphere of the book. Other recommendations: anything by Robert Anton Wilson, The Dice Man by Luke Reinhardt (and the sequels), The curious incident of the dog in the night... I'm just finishing "The Sense of an Ending" which is pretty good although i'm not at the end yet...
Is the accordion sound on 'My head feels like a frisbee" a real accordion? If so what post-processing made it sound that good? I don't remember... surely the best processing for an accordion is the MUTE button...?
of all, thank you so much for the new album. It is absolutely incredible! It makes me very happy and I haven't been able to stop listening to it since we got the download early! It's really sucks that you didn't get to play at Wakarusa this year because of the storm! My question is, on Divine Moments of Truth what did you use for that amazing springy/jiggly sound around the 2:10 mark? It was a drum loop through a buckety old phaser made by AMS. I turned off the LFO and tweaked it on the fly, to try and get it in tune and flow with the song...
I know that you like exploring new genres and I've loved watching your sound evolve. However, I live in Portland, Oregon and I live for true old-school Goa and Psytrance. Twisted introduced me to electronic music and remains my favorite electronic album. Your Shpongle sets do tend to get a bit heavy towards the end, but I am wondering: Do you think you might be inspired to play a true Hallucinogen full-speed psytrance set in the Northwest USA at some point soon? I'm certainly not against performing Hallucinogen anywhere there is demand for it.
At the live Halloween show you did in NY I remember seeing you outside the venue recording on a video camera all the fans that were in line around the block. Were you gonna release any behind the scenes footage of that, or did it come out somewhere and I missed it? I'd love to reminisce!! :::) My ex threw me in a swimming pool and i lost everything on that phone :(
Will you be releasing the song you did for the Magic Ball anywhere officially? Probably not.
I know you said a US tour is not in the cards, but is there a chance/plan to do what you did last time and play a couple of shows in NY and LA? Maybe Red Rocks. I don't think Raj is interested in repeating ourselves...
What inspired you to start creating music? The urge to create...
Simon, Where do you come up with your amazingly awesome percussion patterns? It's my favorite aspect of your music. Is this done via improv instrumentation in the studio? Or preconceived in your head? Made up as i go along...
A while back, you had mentioned an interest in having a subscription service app that would give subscribers access to the stream whole Twisted catalog. Did you scrap this idea? No, it has taken off in a BIG way... Benji is now CEO of a multi-million dollar app company, and it will be used to supply content from many other people... Twisted have rather been left behind by Benji now!
Thank you for many transcendent times, especially the few times you've blessed us with unexpected visits in Atlanta! :::) Where do you go to, physically, geographically or otherwise, for inspiration and relaxation? My bed, India, New York, Tokyo, Cornwall, my studio and my fridge.
When does the Museums of Consciousness US tour start? Not yet.
Simon, What's the best book you've ever read? Also, send my regards to Raja Ram. Oh and see you in at the Troxy in October! Cosmic Trigger by RAW.
Why, why, whyyy was Shpongle not at Bisco this year!? You guys were literally the only reason I even went to year prior, and y'all never even showed up:( Because we weren't asked. Simples.
You should look into playing at the Gorge in washington, absolutely the best venue in the world. That looks amazing! I'm not sure we could fill it though...
Hello, I remember seeing you at the Masquerade on May 21, 2011 which was the supposed date of the Rapture. I remembered when you walked back up for the encore you just simply said "unlike Jesus I'm back". That was cool. Lol... wasn't the venue called "Heaven", too?
I've never stumbled upon another Shpongler in the U.S. either. I find this strange. I'm from Oklahoma...not the most cultured state in the union, but still... I've stumbled across plenty! Maybe it's the hat ;)

Questions Answers
Why do so many gypsies (I apologize if you take it as a generalization) rely on begging for a living? Is it just supplemental income? Do many gypsies lack the documentation to be given "real" jobs, or is it purely a lifestyle choice? Some gypsies women need to feed there kids they have to beg my mom wanted me to see her and we had no money to see so had to beg for it. I never cried so hard for her when I found out she did that for me. so yes and no. we can get jobs we just don't want to gypsy look down on it if we did. well from what i read every day and watch TV you be that way to make money but we just know how to talk to someone but we are good people.
If there was more of an emphasis on education in gypsy culture then they wouldn't have to and could compete for real jobs. Sir I don't get mad when a hobo is doing the same thing and ask some white guy why is he doing that why is he not working.
Yes but lack of emphasis on education is part of gypsy culture, it is not part of "white" culture. Dude why do you hate gypsies so much.
It's not a question. I'm angry when Romani try to scam me for not being one. The culture can be very prejudiced. Sir you have a right to be angry but my kind was almost wiped out by a white man who couldn't paint. Then we got over it maybe thats root of it all.
Edit: spelling.
How do you make money to live? We work. I buy and sell cars on my own we can get a job if we want to but its looks down on. but if have your own business its ok.
Why is having a job looked down upon? In a way yes but if have you a business of your own it's ok.
Give us your best car selling tips. Well have pics of it clean it if you smoke in don't tell you do in the ad also always put o.b.o and don't talk to much about your life when you're showing it a lot we just want to buy the car and last of all if they offer you 200 less take it i now we all need money but it could be the last time someone looks at it . =)
Do your tears protect against the AIDS? Yes. but i'm just telling you to that so you can buy them.
But man I died laughing when he went to the dealership.
What's your attitude to the Channel 4 show 'Big Fat Gypsy Wedding'? Do you feel it portrayed the community in a good light? I just seen a tiny bit of the start but we pay for our wife's we can't date... well we can just no one can know or we pay a claba (fine) of 2,500 or more if her mother and father find out. women cant wear jeans and can't show to much skin to there sakara and sakro (mother and father in law) and we live in house's and we have darker skin. if you want I can show a link of a real gypsy wedding you want.
That would be very interesting and I would like to see that :)... Link to www.youtube.com pics.
Link to www.youtube.com sorry but i could not find good video but here is a buch of hot gypsy girls is that ok.
You've got a great sense of humor, thanks for doing this. What are the places that you have lived before? Do you have many friends outside of the gypsy community? How do you deal with the obvious anti-gypsy bias of reddit? Does it personally bother you, or do you have some empathy for their perspective? I did not know reddit hated gypsies. but I won't lie gypsies need to live so do what we have to they have a right to hate but maybe if they knew there's a good and bad gypsy it would make it more easy. I have a few good good friends. and I lived in Oregon and Washington I know so many places my soon to be wife want to go everywhere once she with me i'll get back to on that my friend.
I had a close friend in Washington who is romani. she's a nurse and she's fantastic. her family is awesome, too. viva gypsies! Is her name erica
I'm sorry that you had to subject yourself to reddit's anti-gypsy hivemind. :( There's no reasoning with it. It's fine I never knew about all this I allways wondered what if people think we are real or not.
Gypsies need to live so do what we have to. Up to and including crime? In Europe there is prejudice that gypsies, both Roma and Irish travellers are criminals involved in pick pocketing, aggressive begging, theft etc. To a degree this is true What are your thoughts on this? Is crime accepted more if it is at the expense of non-travellers or is it frowned upon as it is in wider society? I said this before there are good and bad gypsies a like there good and bad white people.
Nope! Genevieve. Sorry I used to live in tacoma thought it was her I miss that girl. :'( good friend.
You kind of totally avoided my questions there. We are a race
1.Is crime seen as an acceptable thing to do "to survive"? I think its a bad if you do that and i would not know if they do that.
2.Is crime accepted more if it is at the expense of non-travellers or is it frowned upon in gypsy culture as it is in wider society? 2.you already know that.
In response to 2., I thought I'd ask because in the UK there have been documentaries on both gypsies and travellers and the general feeling you get from them is "fuck 'em, they're settled folk, they're fair game". Not me sir I have a heart im sorry if you think that.
Cool, to be honest I think the gypsies shown on this documentaries and certainly the gypsies that I've met (that I was aware were gypsies) probably aren't the types of guys that would use reddit so I guess US and UK/EU gypsies may have grown apart very differently... I just found that out today also.
Let's get real, here. how many curses do you know? Me, none but there is a one saying we like to say in gypsy baki bach(fuck your luck)
That just rolls off the tongue, fuck your luck! So does your username
I don't know if you're still answering questions, but if so: I'm curious about some of the answers you've given regarding dating. You said that gypsy youth aren't allowed to date - and if they do date, they must date in secret or pay the claba. My question is this: how many people do date in secret before they are married? In your experience, I mean - was it a rather common occurrence, or very rare? Is the dating ever sexual in nature, or strictly talking to one another? I still am when I need to take a brake I will say it.
Also, since you pay for your wife, is she sort of like property to you? Do you (or would you) value her opinion on decisions you're making, or is her role something different entirely? We date a lot some are players some are looking for love but we can't tell the girls family or we have to pay. there is sex some gypsy like to go out a get with girl and have sex with it we call it "going out" it's easier then saying "did ya fuck her".
If my questions are too personal, I understand - I don't want to be rude, I'm just curious about your beliefs. When we pay for our wife she is not property I will value her opinion like it says in the bible we are one we make the decisions.
Also, I just want to thank you for doing this AMA - I find it fascinating, and appreciate the chance to learn more about your culture. :)
I have some gypsy friends. They always seem to have money, never seem to have jobs. Why is it so important to many gypsies to show off their "wealth" when they also have huge amounts of debt? You need money to have respect and you get a good wife like that to. but why is it important it's not they just like to show off. the whole debt thing i do not know. sorry if i didn't help you.
Thanks for answering, it's just something I noticed among their family, it is a large one, and also, the Roma Gypsy photo album showing the houses that revealed opulence and grandiosity. My comment was not intended to be derogatory, just trying to get an inside view on what drives this. It was not derogatory.
I live near a traveler community in South Carolina. At an elementary school, there were reports of Romani families asking parents of children at the school if they could have a few of their children, literally, to prevent in breeding in their community. Is this a common occurrence where you live? >I live near a traveler community in South Carolina.

Is this a common occurrence where you live?
Are females discriminated against more or treated "unfairly"? Like, are they less likely to work outside the home or be forced out of school earlier? Do they have less rights with regards to property, etc.? The females treated good we paid up to 25'000 for them some go good homes some don't. and the whole school thing it depends on there family my cousins was home schooled and owning property i thinks it ok.
When you say you paid $25,000 for a female...what do you mean? Like a dowry upon marriage or something? We have arranged marriages so we don't pick who we want but could runaway with the girl and pay them plus a fine if they say yes.
How does the gypsy community in general feel about birth control? You said in response to another person's question that gypsy don't wear condoms. How about birth control pills, or IUD's, or vasectomies, or any other form of birth control? We have no reason for birth control but if we have sex outside our race we warp it and sometimes and no vasectomies none of that.
Is it considered good to have many children, or is better to have fewer children? Having many children Is not a bad thing one is good too.
I'm curious about the language. How similar is to Hindi? Maybe a few words but we took bits a pieces from different languages.
You can look up a gypsy movie that a famous director made they talk gypsy in it with subtitles i forgot the name of him and the movie.
Like us English people :) Yes i grew up learning both but now a days less and less speak it hurts me sometimes.
Is there any way you can keep in contact with your language? I grew up in London and I miss speaking to people with the same accent, it's part of who I am (I live in Australia now). Well i am never from it i still live with my family they talk a lot gypsy.
What's the longest you have lived in one place? Well I have been in Oregon for half my life then went to Washington for 6 years but came back to Oregon because my mother got sick, that was 4 years ago. but we moved like every year, my mom got bored a lot.
Who needs school for knowing grammer is stupid. I do I said that 20 times already.
How important is it for you to marry within the Roma community? You can say gypsy man we like it now. but it is a big part in the gypsy community if i marry a gashie (white women we have names for all races) i would be alone they would not and could not take me as a gypsy. it took my uncle about 20 years to come back from that. for me if i fall in love i can't help but i found a gypsy girl who I do love.
This may be too late for a response, but how does it work with Roma with gashie traits? My family says Roma only. They hate "gypsy". But we sorta assimilated big time and intermarried. A Slovak Roma married a Ukranian. Their son married an Irish woman. I'm the result. Most ppl say I can't call myself Roma. I don't really care except when ppl talk shit on Eastern European Roma, cause my grandfather is a good man. Point of this....would your family/friends consider me gashie? half breed? tainted goods? Dude you're making it sound bad being half is not bad. now you can get gypsy and white women. ;)
What are some names for other races... like... all of them lol. I don't how to spell any of this but will try well all Asians are chinamia, Caucasians gashey, African americans kalocos all Spanish mexconos. that's all i know.
Huh, what was your education like? ow old are you? I am 22 my good sir we had a gypsy school in oregon when I was 10 every gypsy went there good times. when came to learning I never got it. i learned how to read and more but math and spelling I could not get. then went to high school got to grade 11 my grades got bad and I left and it was a fun time.
Also I am 23, figured I'd let you know.... whatever.... Niceeeee this comments.......not black.
How did your family feel about that? Is education/learning important to them? No education was not to important to them but did not try to stop me when I wanted to know more.
And: ideally, what would you like from the laws of your country of residence (I'm getting from the rest of this AMA that you live in the US?) As in, how would you like the government to protect your right to live in your family tradition? How would you like the government to support minorities such as gypsies financially, or in terms welfare (healthcare, food stamps, etc.?) Do you approve of affirmative action? Basically, how would you like the government to treat gypsies? How i want the government to treat my kind........ just the same as everyone else no less no more. maybe a free smoothie maker
Huh? Borat.
Ask for a pony! now's your chance! Omg. I will take one ranbow dash please
What do you think of the stereotypes that are thought of? The stereotypes well we love to sing and dance and we like punting on a good show some are true what have u heard about us.
Do you also have the hatred against Hitler along with the jews for what they did to your ancestors? I don't hate Hitler I don't hate no one. but he was a bad man for what he did and yes if I could I would go back in time to stop him. and the jews come on guys don't act like the only kind who was in there......ok bad joke but it's staying.
That you are crooks and just rumors seem to give you a bad rep.. I know many people were effected ie retarted, disabled, anyone 'imperfect'. It is bad having someone think that where I can't say I am a gypsy. if I say I am one i know i won't be making money that day.
I still wonder why Hitler would go after gypsies I know there a dozen reasons why but why did he pick us I'm thinking the homeless thing got him i don't know.
He wanted the perfect german race. And i think he viewed gypsys unperfect. But we like to dance =(
Do not try shrink me gypsy, I' serious. You made my day.
Negative, what? What his tribe was i am a ristick i forgot the rom way of saying it sorry.
A vitsa is a tribe? Idk man he's really lost touch with the gypsy side of his family, well he didn't really ever know them, his grandfather married his grandmother and she is white. Ohhhh yea that happen but when you do that no threats you the same as long they are happy that's good.
On average, how many children do you all have? I've seen a few Tony Gatlif films for a French class that I took, and children were always abundant. My mom had two kids my aunt had seven but gypsy don't wear condom so that could be why there's see so many kids. yup gypsy men don't know when to pull out =)
Are you catholic? Christian.
How do you communicate with gypsy communities in different areas? are you welcomed into any community in the world, or are the different groups? Well 90% gypsies are christian so we go to church to start and it go on from there i think i never been to a new community but i know you can't work there and if you they will run out of town. and we can go anywhere.
They want people to think they are poor? I don't know about American gypsies but all of former Yugoslavia there are a lot of gypsies and they are most definitely dirt poor. Ok from what I read gypsies from Europe are bad and i am sorry for that I just thought all gypsy kind was the same i was worng thank you all for teaching me.
What are some cultural differences/peculiarities that most people aren't aware of when dealing with gypsies? For example, is there any type of behaviour or custom that often gets interpreted as rude, but is misunderstood? No only between gypsies a woman can't walk in fount of a man or show her stomach when she is pregnant and its bad to have twins.
Hey, thanks for doing this AMA! I grew up in Cincinnati, and whenever my family and I would go to Spring Grove cemetery we would ALWAYS see gypsies and their GIGANTIC headstones. what's the deal with your headstones? Because we love are family that we have to give a good send off to them.
Yeah, I figured that was part of it but I mean, the stones are literally the largest in the cemetery. 15-20ft+. They're beautiful. Why do you and your people get the larger stones? Is it a money thing or? It could be but my reason is I love my mother and father i want them to have something nice.
That's something I've noticed after living by large groups of gypsies nearly my entire life. Gypsies are some of the most genuinely loving and caring people I've ever met. The world needs more people like your kind. Why thank you if we had more people who want us in the world.
I've been reading all your answers in an accent (like, non-American accent). But now I realize it might just be from the nonstandard spelling and grammar. So do you have an accent when you speak? I was bad in school I can't help it ill try harder and I to forget read it before I hit the save button.
Also, how long has your family been in the US? And my family have been in the US for more then a 100 years i think. no one helps me with that kind of stuff.
No worries. I was trying really hard to word my question so you didn't take it as a criticism- it wasn't meant as one. But I take your response to mean you don't have a non-American accent. Thanks so much for the interesting AMA! Thank you for reading and not getting pissed off at a guy who can't spell.
You said earlier you'd like help with grammar and spelling. Here is a resource for grammar: Link to www.englishclub.com which includes little quizzes on each sections and for vocabulary here is a set of essential words for the TOEFL test or english as a second language test: Link to www.memrise.com. Wow thank you so much that made me so happy.
Two unrelated questions for you: What's your food like? Does it resemble Indian food? Do you generally live at home until you marry? Nothing like indian food but we like spice there is a dessert that we that has egg noodles cream cheese eggs suger and your choice of fruit.
We staty home till we are married but stay a little bit longer to save money and teach the girl the ropes of being a wife.
How often are you discriminated against? Is there any laws in your country that protects Romas from discrimination? Well its hard working if i tell people i'm a gypsy so its not bad but its not good. And we live everywhere.
You shouldn't. It's not you doing it but I know what you mean. P.s. Those gypsy girls you posted don't look anything like the ones I'm used to in London. Are you hiding them all away ? I just seen the first video and posted it all i seen was one girl and said cool.
You did well. Serious question; Gypsy culture seems quite macho. How is the issue of homosexuality treated ? Does it even exist openly in the gypsy world ? Wow you're asking the hard questions. there are gay gypsies so i know there is one openly gay in oregon and there is a gay gypsy youtube Channel but they are attention whores so no link lol.
Good to know it's not completely shunned. I just can't imagine it going down well with the gypsies over here. Well they don't kill them and they don't shake there hands but you get what I mean
Are people in your community treated differently if they live in a permanent structure home than trailers? That's hard to say because no one lives in trailers in oregon but if you can make money it doesn't matter.
Can I have my stereo back please? WHAT I CAN'T HEAR YOU JUST GOT A NEW STEREO SYSTEM.
What do you think of stochelo Rosenberg, jimmy Rosenberg, or django Reinhardt? And also, what is tzigane? Django Reinhardt good jazz man everyone should pick up his book up if want to know how a gypsy lived in the holocaust and i never heard of the rosenbergs I need to look them up and I do know what tzigane means sorry bro.
Why not just say that? I would be soooo much more open to helping out with some free food and toiletries and stuff if you were honest. But if someone comes up to me and it's so blatant they're trying to game me or scam something, it's not going to work. Sir some gypsies want free stuff some don't.
Show us proof, like your house or something. Do you like dags? I love dags (dicks) so much we can't call it dick if fount of our family so we all call it dags and I can't show my house but my vitsa is ristick.
Whats up with you and Pokeporn? Can't a guy like pokemon and porn and blend it together.
What area of Europe are you located around? My family came from the Hungary so I was just curious. None we live in the USA or 'meraca
Lol. what country do you descend from? I do not know my family has been here 100 year or more we tend to lose a lot of stuff like old papers from we have been and so on =)
Are you into Palm Reading? I have always been interested just because I think a person's hands can tall a lot about them and I would be interested what mine say about me. I don't do palm reading but a lot us do.
What are your dating rituals? We don't have any we to do in secret or we pay a fine.
Who gets the money from the fines?? Her family
Are you the guy who intimidated me into giving you money for TGIF a string around my finger? The only reason it worked was because my roommate was an idiot and I didn't want him to walk off alone with a stranger. No sir and fuck them who ever did to you.
That happened the first day of my study abroad in Rome. Wasn't cool, but I had a great trip anyway. Wake up call to be more careful I suppose. Actually, I feel kind of dumb at the moment because when I first read the topic I immediately thought of Roma as in the city, not the people. Don't feel dumb I thought it was the city the first time too.
Where did your family live before the US? I do not know we lived here since my great grand papo (grandad). Over a 100 years
Accurate?: Link to www.guardian.co.uk. For me no for a lot of gypsies yes just replace horse with car. and thank you for finding this
Where is your family from, if you don't mind sharing? My grandmother is from Romania, supposedly gypsy heritage but I don't think it works like that.. Portland Oregon. but she could be we don't know what are race is
Link to www.oregonlive.com. No I wish he got out and they give him his money back I don't know much they gave back.
What part of Portland? You don't need to get super specific, but I'd be interested to hear if you're in a burb like Beaverton, or up in North Portland. Near blue lake park. if you ever see a fat ass trying catch a dog while a women is crying for the dog that's me.
Why would he have to give any of it back? He lied about how much he made in order to not have to pay taxes, and he did it many times. That's what happens when you lie to the IRS, they take your money away and throw you in the slammer. No he got 3 days later out and hes at his car lot selling cars as i send this out
Is there a gypsy neighborhood over there? Not a big one.
This may sound like the most unbelievably retarded comment ever. But does the 'roma' part of the name 'roma gypsy' come from the old name for 'Rome'? Like the city?
Do you feel more loyal to your country or to the gypsy diaspora? USA USA USA.
You like dags? Dags is what we call a burger place in seattle you guys call it dick's.
I was trying to make a Snatch joke.... I suck... Never heard of it thats why I didn't get it. and you don't suck.
A Gypsy huh? Cockhead is the best you can come up with.
Well FUCK YOU COCKHEAD!!!!! . Do not feed the the trolls.
I hate Gypsies. I really do. Fucking A beggars and violent motherfuckers. Do NOT touch me asshole or I will rip you in half. Did you ever talk to a gypsy sir
Yes you illiterate fuck. So why do you hate us.
Do you play accordion? No i wish..... How I long to like weird al. But I do wish that.
Do Romani Gypsies ever interact with Irish gypsies (travelers)? Also do Romani gypsies fight as the Irish Gypsies do with their bare knuckles, or is that tradition solely for the Irish? would love to hear back from you :) Me I have never talked with one but would love too. and no we do not fight but that is kinda cool.
What do you think of Gogol Bordello? I have never heard of him I shall look him up.
Any familial ties to the circus? I wish my good buddy I wish :'(
Are you romanian? just asking cause i'm romanian No american gypsy.
Please do not turn me into doll gypsy. To late mahahahahahah.
We're from the same haplogroup. I am Indian. Very strange how the patterns of the two groups have diverged so much... Yes I know that. I love reading about the Indian culture. but sorry bro I think gypsies stole the whole arranged marriage thing from them.
What do you think about My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding on TLC. Seen like 5 minutes of it we are american gypsies so not to much difference just we can't date people
This one is very good. Wow thank you so much do they speak in gypsy too.
Because 99% of the rest are dirt poor... No they just want you to think that we show are friends and family what we have
Not sure full lips or duck lips... Its ok i still don't know
Your comment has caused great butthurt. How is that a butthurt the comment is funny made me laugh hard I up voted it to.
I realize you live in America and sound like a good guy. I just want you opinion about roma gypsy groups that are being send out all over europe to steal and then bring it back to romania to make those tacky (yet impressive) houses. We really didn't need that. I never heard of that could you give me a link or something before i tell you if that's ok.
Explain. It is my race and my community we have our own unwritten language also.
Please don't shrink my head. Maybe. first you buy.
Travelers aren't gypsies. Travelers come from the British Isles mainly and have their own community rules different from gypsies. There are large communities of Travelers in SC and they have inbreeding problems because they only marry cousins. Romanis do not. TILA.
Thanks for an interesting thread. I've never known any gypsies personally but I remember a grave at Farnborough churchyard, a really outstanding grave - I just looked it up and it says there was a lot of gypsies lived in the area and about the grave - Link to romanygenes.webeden.co.uk. Why thank you I love a good read I love the past gypsy stuff but could never find it.
Tabor uhodit v nebo. Ummmm soka dun bary (hi how you doing man).
Fuck you gypsy, stop trying to sell me flowers wherever i go. Sorry but they have kids to feed they need to make money some how plus she makes more money then you anyways.
I didn't know the point of AMAs was to be bigoted trash at the person taking time out of their day. I guess I learned something. you are defending me right Yay.
Fuck yeah I am. Roma seem to be the last group it's publically okay to shit on, and jokes like that aren't helping. Thank you for that. but you can call all US roma gypsy just gypsy now.
If we ever meet I will have my mom make us some good gypsy food hope you like spicy.
Sounds good to me homie, i was under the impression gypsy was a touchy word for outsiders to use, so i figured play it safe. No we like it now. If you played assassins creed revelations ezio auditore talks with a lot of roma/gypsy.
