hmmm green shoes...  
Here is a brand spanking new picture of Bob and the boys of Franz from ff.co.uk... 

I'm loving Bob's new shoes...and do i see that Mr. Hardy got a new bass on his time off?

jamygabbjamygabb on March 8th, 2007 03:43 am (UTC)
The bass looks pretty nice, but like you said, I prefer his rickenbackers. But the shoes, keep 'em.
Lauraslave_to_franz on March 8th, 2007 01:46 pm (UTC)
We should call him. 'Hi Bob - you don't know us. But we're relatively obsessed with you. Anyway, get rid of your new bass. And give us your shoes. Thanks. Have a nice day!'

well Bob DOES read slacken ties and maybe he reads bob daily. He might have stumbled upon this comment already. :O Or we could send him a letter!
Laura: Bob awwslave_to_franz on March 8th, 2007 08:34 pm (UTC)
Maybe I'll send a letter by way of the fan club. Or I'll save up some money, fly to Glasgow, and walk around until I find Bob, and when I do, I'll give him the message. And then I'll steal whatever shoes he's wearing, whether they're the green ones or not.
jamygabb: Philippejamygabb on March 8th, 2007 08:38 pm (UTC)
I'm thinking about sending Bob a letter. Definitely going to ask him that question and where he gets his shoes from. :D YES! Go to Glasgow and steal his shoes :P

If one were to send a letter to Bob, where should one send it? The fan club? To every single address in Glasgow?
beebs_perreaultbeebs_perreault on March 8th, 2007 10:38 pm (UTC)
I love the idea of stealing Bob's shoes, it is a very funny one indeed. Imagine his reaction LOL! Anyways, i think that sending them a message on Myspace should do the job....if one of the members of Franz sees it, they'll surely pass the message along to Bob....at least i hope they would
jamygabbjamygabb on March 8th, 2007 10:45 pm (UTC)
Slave to franz...I sent a few messages to the band on myspace. Bob responded to the ones I directed towards him. But he hasn't been on their myspace recently, that's why I'm thinking about sending a letter. Send to the fan club one. Put Bob Hardy c/o above the Franz Ferdinand Fan Club thing.

Got it. Does anyone know how much postage is required to send a letter from the US to the UK?

jamygabbjamygabb on March 9th, 2007 12:03 pm (UTC)
Postage is about 79 cents or so.

Yes, yes! He did! :D When I first saw them in my inbox I said "SQUEEE". Anyways, I first asked him what was his favorite albums of 2006. He replied "I do not like music. It gives me a bad headache." (Silly Bob) Then I asked him about his beard. He said "I still have my beard. It makes me look wiser than my bandmates, which I am." The last two messages was a conversation about his hat collection and mine too. He envies my conductor hat. Told me he has a satin winnipeg hat that his bandmates don't know about. Also has a train ticket seller's hat too, cos he asked for it.
Lauraslave_to_franz on March 9th, 2007 08:35 pm (UTC)
That is so cool! I'm gonna try sending him a message on myspace now... but it probably won't be anything about the new bass/shoes. Just wondering, what did you put in the message title? Was it directed right at Bob, or was it a generic title?

Anyway, I'm about 94% sure that I am going to send a letter. Am I going to be the only one in this adventure, or are other people going to join me?
jamygabbjamygabb on March 9th, 2007 08:40 pm (UTC)
The title had "Bob, *insert subject*" so Bob knew it was directed towards him. Bob hasn't been on the myspace much, but good luck! I'll also send him a letter! I'll join you. Hehe. I think I will also send a paper hat too, so he can add that to his collection.
Lauraslave_to_franz on March 9th, 2007 08:50 pm (UTC)
That's so weird...my friend told me a year ago to send him a paper hat that I made! That's actually kinda creepy. It was black and said 'Captain Bob' on the bottom in gold. If I find it, I might send it too.
Laura: Bob Oh My Gawd!slave_to_franz on March 10th, 2007 03:06 am (UTC)
I ended up re-making my captain's hat. The other one was..well, it was eaten to pieces by my cat. Anyway, Captain's Hat Redux!

SEND IT! I was going to make a bishop paper hat! It almost looks like a peter pan hat!

We'll send individual letters. Good time to send them, cos they are still at home!
Lauraslave_to_franz on March 10th, 2007 04:48 am (UTC)
I'll probably send mine out tomorrow. It's going to be a typical fan-girl letter, with the addition of the green shoes/bass comments.

Oh, and thank you so much for giving me the idea of sending Bob a message via myspace. I got a reply! (See here for more info if you want: http://slave-to-franz.livejournal.com/6474.html)
Laura: Bob what?slave_to_franz on March 10th, 2007 04:51 am (UTC)
Actually, I was thinking - what kind of stuff are you guys putting in your letters?
jamygabb: Bobjamygabb on March 10th, 2007 04:58 am (UTC)
Good idea! He'll love the comments about his shoes. You're welcome about the idea. Glad that he responded! You communicated with the Bobbeh!

I was first pondering that for a while. So far, I'll mention about the places he traveled to and probably also comment about his sense of style.

OH! And working in the kitchen with Alex. That's all I thought up so far. My friend told me a poem I should send to Bob. It goes like this:

"Bobsley, Bobsley, you're so godly. You might think I'm weird, I like your beard. Facial hair; it's ace!"
Lauraslave_to_franz on March 10th, 2007 05:06 am (UTC)
That's a beautiful poem. It should win an award.

I think I'm gonna add my address at the end of my letter under my name. You know...just in case. Maybe I'll discuss his hats in order to explain the hat that I'm sending. Should we put something that references to bobdaily? Or, we should at least put something in that will link all letters together. Maybe something about the fact that we're part of a wonderful organization on livejournal devoted to him.
jamygabbjamygabb on March 10th, 2007 05:10 am (UTC)
Oh oh! You're so right! We should mention something about bob daily, so he could see how much we love him. Bob always seems shy thinking that Alex gets all the attention. Nooo...we have boboholics in a livejournal group! I might too, add my address. You never know. I forgot to say, I'll also put a picture of him I drew. Going to be fangirlish, but oh well. He might like it.
Lauraslave_to_franz on March 10th, 2007 05:15 am (UTC)
Let's give him the royal fangirl treatment. But I think that we should all put in something about bobdaily because: 1. bobdaily is the shit!, 2. to have a common thread in all of our letters, and 3. again, bob daily is the shit!
jamygabb: Grrrjamygabb on March 10th, 2007 05:17 am (UTC)
Ah, but as fangirls, we should still act intelligent and try to bring up good topics. hehe. YES. We will mention the Bob Daily. Of course it's the shit! We track his every move...which is pretty stalkerish, but we love him that much.
Lauraslave_to_franz on March 10th, 2007 05:20 am (UTC)
It's a sign of devotion, and it lets him know that he will always have people that love him - no matter how bad his new basses are.
jamygabb: Yet another drinkjamygabb on March 10th, 2007 05:24 am (UTC)
Haha! Even if he shaves his beard *tears* But now he grew it back! And come on, that pout is just adorable. How can people not be devoted to him?

I'm pretty devoted. I seriously think I have a 1000 pictures of him now.
Lauraslave_to_franz on March 10th, 2007 05:28 am (UTC)
And now that horrible song "Hopelessly Devoted To You" is stuck in my head. Damn you bob daily for being so catchy!!

Oh, I just want to make sure that I have the address right..

Bob Hardy c/o
Franz Ferdinand Fan Club, PO BOX 545, Walton-On-Thames, KT12 9BE, UK
jamygabb: Bobjamygabb on March 10th, 2007 05:34 am (UTC)
Correcto! I'll probably send my letter on Saturday or Monday. Either would do for me, I'm not in a rush. hehe.
Lauraslave_to_franz on March 10th, 2007 05:36 am (UTC)
Actually, mine will probably get sent out Monday. But I'm going to aim for Saturday, cause I'm snazzy like that. Check it.
jamygabbjamygabb on March 10th, 2007 05:39 am (UTC)
I usually procrasinate in sending fanmail, but I think I'll send it ASAP. Bob deserves that sort of treatment. You don't see many bassists that are bearded AND has a grand hat collection
beebs_perreaultbeebs_perreault on March 9th, 2007 08:47 pm (UTC)
i'll join you! is it a joint letter?
Lauraslave_to_franz on March 9th, 2007 08:49 pm (UTC)
I think we're going to send individual letters. Unless we want to make a joint letter. I don't mind.
beebs_perreaultbeebs_perreault on March 9th, 2007 02:20 am (UTC)
if you dont mind me asking...what did you ask him????
