Welcome to the official Moblog for Maximo Park - the Maximoblog.

This is where the band post photos of whatever takes their fancy that they think might be of interest to the wider public, from the mundane (backstage) to the spectacular (Archis' hair).

But they are not the only ones, as this Maximoblog is open to you!

Anyone who wants to send in a photo, whatever they feel relevant, we would love to see. The more the merrier, the more creative the better.

Get involved!

RE: Sad Nerdy Fan Art

Sigh.. I've finally summoned the courage to post my pic of tiny, squishy
chibi Maximo Park. I think they're incredibly cute, non manga fans (ie
normal people) may find them disturbing...
Oh Paul, please post your proper grown-up art soon!

Oh, man it's well crappy resolution. And I have the nerve to comment on my own post first...

10th May 2006, 20:46

daz says:

That way, at least people know who posted it. :)

Bound(p_bound-at-hotmail-dot-com) says:

yeah, I was probably supposed to put my name up, wasn't I?

10th May 2006, 21:16

daz says:

Hm, I guess you could have put it in the email body.. But I think it would still have said, "posted by anonymous" because it wouldn't have recognized the submission address... I'm not sure, though.

Dishevelled Jen says:

vic says:

11th May 2006, 09:55

clara says:

Here I am! Weeelll....I quite like the drawing,but there's some sadness in it.It's got something.There's my opinion,for what it's worth.
It would be good to see some of Paul's art,if he can oblige.
Don't be offended,Bound,I'm not being critical-the drawing's definitely got something.You've caught a mood,Bound!
Well done.

11th May 2006, 14:27

Bound(p_bound-at-hotmail-dot-com) says:

Ta Clar, your opinion is important to me. X

11th May 2006, 15:54

That's a pleasure,glad you think my opinion is of help!

11th May 2006, 16:12

nerea says:

11th May 2006, 16:19

clara you say theres some saddness in it well, not really if you look back ove this hole blog there a lots of sad things in the same way, people have done are and made snowmen and had cakes made, those things are sad if you think they are i think this is a cool pic, bound good talent there! if you like it fantastic. nerea it would look quite cool on a t-shirt!

11th May 2006, 16:24

clara says:

I don't mean sad like that,Mr Lamb! I mean sad in that it gives out some emotional sadness,not as in SADDO sadness. Do you see what I mean? Nothing wrong with the artist,as far as I can tell. It is a cool pic,yes. (Whole is spelt whole,by the way.)

11th May 2006, 16:29

daz says:

Speaking of that, spaces are usually placed between punctuation marks and the following word.

EDIT: A comma does count as punctuation.

11th May 2006, 16:32

yeah i know hole was spelt wronG i dont really give a toos if i spel one word wrong!

i see what you mean in a saddness emotional way i get ya.

11th May 2006, 16:32

daz says:

11th May 2006, 16:34

11th May 2006, 16:43

11th May 2006, 16:51

11th May 2006, 16:52

anonymous says:

11th May 2006, 16:55

clara says:

Yes so do I,Bound-it's rubbish.
OK bmal,I wasn't accusing you of anything.......keep chilled.

11th May 2006, 17:06

oh i know that i was just saying you didnt need to apologise for saying i spelt something wrong just coz you found out i was dyslexic. that is all

11th May 2006, 17:07

daz says:

bmal: My last comment wasn't meant for you. ;)

11th May 2006, 17:09

oh i know daz i still thought it was a bit cheeky but very funny!

11th May 2006, 17:13

clara says:

Okay,so we're all a bit at cross-purposes,now.

11th May 2006, 17:14

i know exactly what is going on!

11th May 2006, 17:15

daz says:

Oh. Well, I aim to please. And be cheeky. :D Although you must admit that I'm not anywhere NEAR as cheeky as some of the other ladies have been for the last couple of days... ;)

11th May 2006, 17:15

yes that was a cheeky little thread it has calmed down a bit now tho!

11th May 2006, 17:16

heArtbeAt says:

I didn't know there was something abnormal about liking mangas... Anyway, I like your drawing Bound, it's very cute.

11th May 2006, 17:19

clara says:

I guess this is the internet;cheekiness is par for the course(within reason)?

11th May 2006, 17:22

clara says:

and there's a few cheeky anons on this thread today.

11th May 2006, 18:30

heArtbeAt says:

where? anons are almost always cheeky anyway...hehe

11th May 2006, 18:47

clara says:

I think Paul sometimes posts as anon on here,but don't think he's cheeky,somehow.

11th May 2006, 19:13

clara says:

(Of course I could be wrong.)

11th May 2006, 19:15

daz says:

You do have a wild imagination. ;)

11th May 2006, 19:16

clara says:

How's that?

11th May 2006, 19:17

clara says:

Never mind.
Don't think my imagination's that wild.
I'll take my leave now.

11th May 2006, 19:25

daz says:

I was being nice, y'know. ;)

11th May 2006, 19:35

Rich says:

My imagination's off the hizzook.

Love the picture, you should do a full comic strip of ver Park. Possibly fighting the Arctic Monkeys in their 500ft mecha-bots. That would totally rule.

11th May 2006, 23:50

Bound(p_bound-at-hotmail-dot-com) says:

Rich, that idea rocks nuts! I should also do a Smith vs. Vedder strip in honour of Reading.
I've decided that anon at 16.44 was Paul, 'cos that would make me very happy. It's highly unlikely, but I will console myself with happy delusion. X

12th May 2006, 08:00

anonymous says:

Paul said he rarely if ever goes on the moblog. he just takes pictures and sends them... he doesn't really ever read the moblog...

12th May 2006, 09:57

anon says: cover has been blown

12th May 2006, 10:00

anonymous says:


12th May 2006, 12:02

clara says:

Bound,that's a brilliant idea-Smith v Vedder!!Do it!
I also think that the anon at 4.44 was Paul,I think he does read this moblog and comments sometimes.
Otherwise, how could the band judge the cameraphone comp?

12th May 2006, 13:49

clara says:

Paul's a spy really,you know,it's
the hat that does it.

12th May 2006, 13:50

say something against the hat and you're in trouble my dear ;)

12th May 2006, 13:53

clara says:

I didn't mean it to sound uncomplimentary!That hat does suit him.

12th May 2006, 13:57

it's not about Paul, it's about the hat. We're married ya know? ;)
Na just kidding, but I love this thing with all of my heart :)

12th May 2006, 14:00

clara says:

Have you got a hat similar,L.R.?

12th May 2006, 14:11

no but there's a picture on here somewhere in which I wear a hat.
It's not mine though and I would look strange in Pauls anyways.

12th May 2006, 14:19

clara says:

I've seen that picture,it was sometime last year,I think. Days when the blog was a little more sane.

12th May 2006, 14:20

(there was something it's not anymore)

12th May 2006, 14:54

clara says:

I hope all's OK,L.R.

12th May 2006, 15:10

Don't behave like I'm insane or something. I know I must seem like I am..talking to no one and things.
But there's no other way for me to adress him/her..

12th May 2006, 15:13

clara says:

Oh I see. Perhaps someone's giving you hassle? Anything I can do to help?

12th May 2006, 15:16

no really.
and it's nothing personal either. I just came across this and wondered at why he/she is using his/her name and picture. That's all.
'nuff said. It's up to him/her's just I wouldn't leave it like this.
Well, hope the creepy creatures leave him/her alone.

Gah, that's more than I should say ..
Everyone forget all this :)

12th May 2006, 15:21


12th May 2006, 15:21

clara says:

well if you need anyone to talk to,L.R. let me know...

12th May 2006, 15:34

haha would you please stop this? I don't need any straight jackets, this person's existing.

12th May 2006, 15:40

clara says:

Yes,I'm aware you are perfectly normal,I feel this person's distressing you badly.And I believe they do exist,I do. You seem a very balanced person. If you need any help, I can give you my email address.

12th May 2006, 15:42

(same here)

12th May 2006, 15:45

I should have never brought this up, I'm sorry.

12th May 2006, 15:46

clara says:

I believe he/she's real.If he's reading this,perhaps he/she could stop whatever it is he's doing and give L.R. a break.

12th May 2006, 15:53

(and here)

12th May 2006, 15:59

Rich says:

This is possibly the most elliptical intarnet drama ever. Save it for livejournal, we're only interested if there's blood involved.

12th May 2006, 16:00

I never wanted to talk about that. I wanted to leave it at the comment for him..but I won't not reply when someone's talking to me like I'd have a problem, ya know..

12th May 2006, 16:05

Rich says:

Tha's coo, you're all fine.

I have to say the maximoblog amuses me greatly. Bless you all to hell.

12th May 2006, 16:21

*nods* same ere.

12th May 2006, 16:35

clara says:

Incdentally,what do you make of Live Journal,Rich?
I love the Maximoblog -it's a blast!

12th May 2006, 16:47

Rich says:

I'm a cynical old bastard and I have to say that on the whole livejournal, myspace and all that sort of thing really annoy me. But that's mainly because I'm an ugly old bastard with no life and nothing to write about.

Plus I chanced across the Encyclopedia Dramatica last night which fuelled my irrational hatreds.

12th May 2006, 17:22

clara says:

(oh blimey,is it that bad?)

12th May 2006, 17:24

clara says:

"The hate I part of what fuels me"

12th May 2006, 17:34

clara says:

Well,folks, I'll say cheerio for now.See you again soon.

12th May 2006, 18:07

daz says:

Rich: "most elliptical intarnet drama ever" - you just out it *perfectly*. :D

12th May 2006, 23:00

clara says:

What what we all do without internet drama?

13th May 2006, 18:14

clara says:

Have just accessed the Encycopedia Dramatica.........moving swiftly on.
