so who is all going???
anyone up for a DiS 5-a side/minigolf/singstar tournament?
competitive karaoke FTW.
right back atcha!
my mate is driving a 17 seater minibus from aberdeen, via inverness, then glasgow, all the way to minehead. if we make it alive, i'll be impressed.
how long will that journey take?!
leaving in an hour. there is no engine.
nah, theyre leaving aberdeen at midday thurs, they'll get down to glasgow at teatime, then some scran and a snooze, then we leave glasgow at 2am, and should scoot into butlins at about 11, happy days!
i want to do that.
up to glasgow first, then you can.
or if not, we are going to have a teenwolf stlye van-surfing competition on the saturday morning...
I have to get there from glasgow and I have absolutely no idea how Imgoing to do it yet.
are you taking your singstar then? I was thinking about taking mine. I have Rock Ballads which is by far the best disc so could bring that along.
i need to remind you all how good at knights of cydonia i am.
ive got singstar rocks, legends, 80's, 90's and anthems.
we had a competition last year against some swedish folk and some japanese folk. Considering that english wasnt their first language, they were suprisingly good.
but seriously Ballads is where it's at. Wall to wall classics. It's got Cutting Crew!
ever met anyone who can actually do the rap ones? they're just soooooo hard.
me trying to do 'it's tricky' at 3am the other day = FAIL
i can totally hit those notes.
unfortunately I won't be at ATP to show off my skills. :(
i'm going!! should i book train tickets now or what???
Primary aim: hang out with Ghostface Killah in his chalet
Secondary aim: hook up Jens Lekman with Ghostface for killer collab
i'll be the one with a massive, fuck-off cast on my leg as i was lucky enough to break my ankle yesterday.
I'll look back and lol about it in the years to come. Really i will...
Oh hell, i'm too excited already.
ladylumps and mr adrian or something like that anyway
ladylumps and mr adrian pitchfork one.my mistake :(((o
Camber first then a slow meander sampling the delights of southern England, finally this
AND THE OTHER ONE
I am also in.
Until mid-way through the Sunday, when I have to go home to sit an exam.
just says "ATP Explosions" etc doesnt say what kind of room i've got or anything on it, what's the procedure with the tickets then ?
is a go. two teams sorted already (though a couple arent DiSers)
i actually factually cant wait.
3am beach football is mucho funo
beach football is even better though. taking someone down big time with a two foot tackle while the sun rises is so romantic.
...I'm driving down from Oxfordshire in my luxury comedy 7-seater Japanese drunk-exec carrier. I may be able to fit a couple more people in, for petrol money, so give me a shout if you're interested.
what did you actually get ? just the 2 tickets ??? nothing else ?
bugger all about chalets or anything else
shall be there, providing we don't get lost.
Can we please please pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease play minigolf this time? It better not be shut. Grrr.
I can bring some singstar too. And provide half a goal for the 6am footy match.
Not long now! I'm well excited!
r GETTING BOSHED. yas.
and totally up for minigolf/gocarting/singstar!
and bringing my team for that bizarre card-based fantasy football game, ready for all comers. BOOYAH
a ATP virgin, so be gentle with me.
first time i have ever been
We have singstar in our chalet
everyone is welcome to knock out total eclipse of the heart or a spanish song from el singstaro
i will be staring at people i kind of recognise from afar. please don't get freaked out...
but i'd love to play 5-a-side as well...
i thought he would be what with the national playing
what a poofter.
and i will be there with bells on... and real-life friends.
but truly yes i do.
and we have a 7berth P.A.R.T.Y. chalet which is going to be hella fun. so if anyone saw me post-whiskey last year imagine that x7 for 3 days. (y)
sixteen, in a minibus from cardiff.
think there will be a strong cardiff contingent at this one. despite a certain football team being in the cup final that saturday.
OH YEAH, sports bar ahoy
the last weekend of the SPL too...
fingers crossed for a final day title decider, maybe aberdeen can do celtic a favour and beat rangers at pittodrie, like they did last year...
Me too. Do you know Dyfan or Mark?
3 weeks this weekend!
that is so soon! i can't wait.
Practising throwing up my W's for Ghostface & Raekwon as we speak. Which looks odd in an office environment.
I wonder if EITS use their exploding amp episode at the Astoria as a gimmick at their gigs now? (Or was it the mean fiddler, always get those two mixed up)
you all bring your dookers.
because the rapids in the swimming pool = instant hangover cure.
its like taking a bath, without the effort of having to run one.
i'm i'm i'm
and have text two fellow goers about it today. neither have replied :(
without any chalet details n stuff?
Got the bumpf through on Wednesday and there's only the tickets and the invoice in there.
Thou shalt not panic...
and are there TV's in the rooms too? V.V. Important!
the ticket agencies claim to have sent out emails to everyone with the forms you need to fill in. but from the amount of emails i'm getting it seems they didnt. so if anyone hasnt got the insurance + chalet occupant forms, email me at:
jamie AT atpfestival DOT com
but please check all your email inboxes first...
its slightly irritating to my brain. email me pls.
can't wait can't wait can't wait
even excited enough to make a profile just to say it?
im going to attempt a chalet party, but these breakage costs are putting me off.
relying on boozehounds at the best of times and especially when you know there's gonna be a £50 bill when someone inevitable smashes an ikea lampshade... saying that, i'm well up for some P.A.R.T.Y-ing. Last one in the whirlpool's a mulletcock...
our party will be bringing two litres of vodka, lots of Relentless and a crate of beer for the weekend.
i cant wait
Hehe I thought it was about time I got a DIS profile...what better to co-inside with it than ATP excitement?
i brought a football today for future ATP beach football fun.
Stars Of The Lid, De La Soul & beach football on the same day=perfection?
as close to it as you could get. It's going to be a beautiful weekend. Who are you most looking forward to seeing, apart from SOTL and De la Soul?
Mono for sure. Animal Collective and Broken Social Scene too. and Polvo. dont make me choose!
maybe i can guess from yr profile..
Yeah, all of those...Four tet, silver jews, jens lekman... I hear Battles are quite good live, too....(twice!!) :D
And showers....nuff said.
im a creature of comfort too (read; emo)
also; pizza hut in midst of watching bands=fantastic.
will four tet be an actual live set or just kieran checking his facebook?
Live, should be good. Did you see him at Indigo2 the other night? I was going to go but apathy won out. My flatmate went though, said it was good... I'm sure you wanted to know that...
Also looking forward to explosions, of course, I saw them when they played in London last year, it was pretty good.. Kieren Hebdon was there :D They didn't blow me away though, it wasn't too dissimilar to listening to their record, which was a little disappointing.
i live in Nottingham, indigo2 is far too long a trip to see someone mess around on his laptop.
not too bothered with EITS to be honest, you can add Worlds End Girlfriend to my list though :)
this weekend will be fantastic...
I used to be really into them but I'm a bit bored with them now.. they have undeniably good taste in music though, it has to be said.
you got mail (i think)
i didnt even realise Western Keys were playing. aaaeee.
I'm with him.
i feel i can legitimately be excited now the tickets have arrived :D
We even have our return train tickets from London now. Hurrah!
the cheapest way to travel by train? How much did your tickets cost you?
I am travelling from Blackpool though.
5 hours, 3 changes.
6am start. Should be fun.
to the happy rock cause squire... although the original poster has a 17 seater minibus coming down from Aberdeen- i'm sure you could join his fun truck at some point along the way. A can of ironbru and a cholesterol sandwich should be enough consideration
Can. Not. Wait.
i am going to come too
actual physical tickets?
or gigantic, yes.
if wegottickets, no. cos theygotthetickets.
and two idiots
are you staying with tom whyman?
flying in on Friday from Ireland. Cannot wait. Its going to be immense.
it says rain
but its by a beach. would be better if it was sunny, no?
The christmas ATP is still awesome and it's cold then.
oh what will happen to beach football plans now? :(
I'm a sun-shirker anyway. Sun would be a bonus but it's going to be stupidly ace regardless.
If so YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!
oh lucy :( (or should that be :S )
twelve outside pizza hut yeah?
George Foreman breakfast the morning after at my chalet yeah?
to make it more DiS friendly the meet-up will have an ever worsening layout and Santogold will start playing after seven seconds. oh ho ho
Anyone disturbing my hangover sleep gets some Forest aggro, right Dowling!
what if you're woken to my delightful strains
"Nottingham are you listening?..."
i can imagine i might get a kicking as i have zero back up.
Sheepwear then mate!
and i'll be in a chalet/hanging around with someone i know you've met so i imagine our paths will cross!
he is an exceedingly close friend of mine and i asked him if he'd met you at the DiS gig they did. he said he had.
You Slut! are ace.
It'll be mucho fun.
I should be seeing We Are The Physics the night before for free, has anyone seen them before/are they good?
Now I have an excuse to walk up to people and say "Hello, Monogoat!"
If you see anyone looking like Jarvis Cocker 15 years ago, come and say hi to me.
i only have one day of work left after today!
so im looking for alan carr and jarvis cocker? ill keep my eyes peeled!
But still: :D
Which youthful celebrity do you resemble? And everyone else? We can all look out for each other, and then whoever finds the most wins*.
* A strictly moral victory. There will be no prize.
think i resemble a celebrity!
i do however look like my father could have been a bear,
so possibily the bear in the big blue house
travellin down from london to taunton on thursday, holiday inn or something then getting to the site mid day friday. extremely excited especially as im meetin mates i've not seen for a while.
i'm the old man in a replacements t-shirt.
if its sunny i may even don long-shorts.
is it worth buying the coach tickets in advance (taunton - the site I mean)?
how much is a cab from the station to the site?
40 quid for a cab
can you not just turn up and get a coach though? the news page is confusing me
i dont see why they cant just run a free shuttle bus service
You can but there was a huge queue last year for the normal buses. Book tickets in advance if you can.
i usually get to taunton for about 12 and never have a problem getting the coach
around 11. i suspect this will be plenty of time, amirite?
i find a lot of londoners seem to arrive at taunton at 2pm or 3pm and are surprised by having to wait a bit for a coach...
might as well get there earlier for maximum drinking time
just phoned the bus ticket line listed on the website - apparently they're all fully booked now.
i want to get there as early as possible
I get in about 11 :)
so should be there for 12 1ish
i apparently look like KT tunstall (oh dear), but like a midget version...
Ooo and i'll have a camera so will have some, er, 'interesting' dance moves!
Because that's going to make you seriously easy to spot.
I AM BLIND! AAAAGH! MY EYES!
i have a mammoth crush of the Tunstall. If you do indeed look like her i may need to be restrained!!!1!!!
i think we used to have the same hair and i have a big moon face but I'm not as pretty alas - but see if you can spot me! :)
But yeah I'm sure I'll give you no reason to be restrained!
And sadly i have no gold trousers nor glitterball bass...
I'm so excited!
What should I expect?
we can lose our virginity together! also it will be the first time we have both gone to an ATP festival.
We should commssion a portrait to remember the event
let's rub beards and generate a massive amount of static electricity.
(I hear that's the initiation ritual, then Jamie Summers presents you with a document that allows you to change your middle names to Steve Albini)
ive not shaved in 2 weeks in preperation
if you want respect from the ATP top brass.
wear fake stick on beards
a beard competition like a knobbly knees contest on the beach?
This makes them more attractive.
and his girfrield are looking for 2 tickets. They're both lovely and I've never seen either of them with an axe.
I'll send him a PM :)
but if that doesn't happen i'll be right on these
send me an up to date spreadsheet of the weekends activities, it is now time to get excited all over again.
is almost recovered.
on monday after travel and then working meat puppets my throat hurt so much that i think my vocal cords were bleeding a bit. SEBADOH!
"Just need to book train tickets now"
"Where is it?"
"It's near Minehead, at Butlins"
"*pause* All Tomorr...oh, right, that's what it's called"
Why do these people never let on? To me, I mean?
Or maybe certain keywords in conversation.
Try walking behind them and saying "Did you know, two pints of milk costs 80p", and see if they react.
i was pretty shocked, but it was cool, unfortunately he laft a month later :(
or they will charge you £150?
I booked a late-ish train back so I could have some nice comedown time in bed
too excited for words.
What's the plan for the football? I want some jumpers and goalposts action.
you spot a really racist chink, it's probably me - say hi!
my boyfriend will shit. I don't care, I have a hairdryer. Fuck you all.
a george foreman grill
presents for two people
have i have I?!?! Can't believe you're bringing the grill :)
Only kidding bro! what time you getting there?
unless vodka in my chalet and a toastie is a pressie? then i have..
we will be there for 2-3ish i reckon. shall we meet to watch Mono or will you be in photo pit?
NO BALL GAMES ALLOWED >:(
I have a change of clothes for every situation. Plus my straighteners. And my knitting.
i have, like, £100 partitioned for this weekend.
there's a fairly high probability that £60 of this will go in train fair on friday
some of you good folks fancy grouping up and getting discount group travel for £28.50 each, if there's a group of four or more.
i'm going with my friend alex. she's great. so am i. honest. any 2's interested in cheap travel/4+'s willing to let us tag along with their plan?
for ATP? It can't be done. Even when I'm teetotal it can't be done.
Then I am off for a BBQ at friends and my weekend of gin will begin. Yesh.
I was going to make one tonight, but I think I will too busy making ipod playlists and running around the house.
Ahh, it reminds me of the ATP Vs The Fans one from last year that stood me in good stead. Screw that tiny little cards they give you, it's all about the A4 sheet.
I amended it from someone's vs fans last year! Great use of work time.
people, we have space for 2 people in a minibus from Cardiff to ATP if anyone's interested - leaving at 10am tomorrow, £25 return. PM me if interested!
brown hair dye has dyed my hair black. i look emo.*cries*
Oops! ;o) see you at Mono bro (I'll be snapping)!
referring to Jordan's post.
I wasn't laughing at monogoat's trip to Taunton.. :)
Do you call yourselves stereogoat?
or constantines? will call you for sure.
remember; DiS MEET AT PIZZA HUT AT TWELVE. TOMMMOOORRROOOWW
