Tickets come out soon don't they? Who is envisaging attending? who wants to share a tent with me? :D
hopefully i will humiliate myself less this year. i'm still meeting people who met me there during my blackout :'(
alternatively, a £29.99 tent at argos ;o)
it's in exactly the same bag I rolled it up into at Reading '05, while trying not to touch the exploded bean plastered down one side. never been opened.
must smell delicious :)
baked beans, spilled vodka, and dirt. YUM.
hannah's since august.
and I'm making Branka share a tent with me.
I still have Matty's tent with me :)
I hope nobody will ask for it.
I'm so excited about Truck, it'll be the best!
I apologise if this puts anyone off.
i'm clean and an experienced camper/drinker/festivaler
I'm looking for youthful dissers to share is all.
21st-22nd or 28th-29th July?
on attending the shit out of Truck this year.
of sharing a tent with Hannah and Ann after they both bailed last year after mine and Bamos' drunkenly-erected (tee hee) tent nearly blew away in a storm....
i will be spending most of my time hiding from james :P
Plenty of room, and no danger of it blowing away. At all. Ever.
it was so much bigger at Reading, when it was actually put up properly.
It's not our fault we're two big useless alcoholics.
so I can't comment.
trying to keep it up.
it was a great effort.
i know, i know...this post sounds incredibly dirty. heh.
We thought we'd done so well on the night, too.
Then I fell in the river and everything went downhill from there.
i did not know this.
I blame the Jack Daniels. Hehe. It's making me giggle all over again. It's also practically the only thing I remember about the whole weekend...
how it happened, I just remember being in the river. Then I had to borrow Bamos' socks. And squelch around the pub.
Drinking a whole bottle of Jack Daniels between us on a 50 minute train ride wasn't a good idea....
I don't share with my girl, yes.
all seemed to have such a laugh last year...
which weekend is it?
if i can convince my friend that she can afford it
i will DEFINITELY go to this.
£60 is still decent value but it just seems to be quite a price hike.
That's why I wondered.
and have as little people there as last year. Might bring my own beer though. And food.
This is unheard of in my festival experiences.
But then I only drink hard alcohol.
I'm not that organised! But if you take your own beer, doesn't it get all warm?
Bamos - I still don't know what that blue stuff was!!
Will you take a fridge this year?
We have to celebrate Team Stripe's 1 year anniversary this year, you know.. And you know how we're gonna do it :)
It doesn't involve beer, does it?
We'll be throwing shapes in the drum'n'bass tent.. or the indie disco. Something like that anyway.
I've learnt that cans of John Smiths Original bitter taste okay when warm though, so it's all good.
Or I could just take Strongbow and see what that is like this year.
do you actually mean 'like shit as they always do'?
No, I mean they taste okay, as opposed to amazing as per usual.
A third day would be wishful thinking, no?
But the organisers have the attitude of making it easily accessible for those who've got work friday/monday, hence the whole finishing early on sunday in (most) previous years. so a 3rd day isn't likely to be the reason for a £20 hike, right?
and no, I guess they're probably going to justify the price hike by saying it's extra special or something because it's the tenth year.
The Arcade Fire would be wishful thinking, no?
I was hoping for a freestyle, a bit of beatboxing, and maybe some super-fresh breakdancing.
Wishful thinking, no?
which single DiSer wants to share a tent? all you with other halves, get away.
I just realised that Truck, my favourite festival and a general annual highlight of my life, will now be semi-tainted as I was there with my ex last year. Great.
that's got to count for something, hasn't it?
Your house? Camden? The Kebab Shop? No! So it will matter not. You'll have me and Bob to help ease the pain if you feel down at any point. We can do 'surrogate ex-girlfriend' very well.
'edgier' material at the festivals this year.
You'll forget you've ever been to Truck before.
shouting at a man in a wheelchair?
Don't sleep on the same patch of grass.
Either that or get junkplanet booked and spend the entire weekend in the artists enclosure, thus making it an almost completely different festival...
It's not as much fun as the main bit.
or no deal?
possibly why i went to so overboard last year.
but, y'know, meh - if i decided to think that every place we went to together was tainted, i wouldn't be able to go anywhere. that'd be no fun.
Who I was with, what I did, etc. So it will probably enter my mind at Truck. Being in a place you haven't been for a while does send echoes of how you were feeling last time you were there, doesn't it. But yes. I shall chase these thoughts out of my head with a big stick of fun. And probably drink.
i was at my old flat cleaning on sunday, and i had some takeaway for dinner and lay on the carpet to let it digest. i then had a sudden flashback to doing basically the same with her the day i signed the lease. i then packed up, and got the hell out of there :o)
did you go there and have fun before last year? WELL THEN.
truck was possibly the best weekend of 2006.
Having not been to Truck before, what can I expect? Other than bobbygeorge yelling at a man in a wheelchair and guntrip...doing something.
we had a nice civilised conversation.
where you can hear noise from all the stages at the same time.
dont be sad or blue for this year I will definately be there (Mrs Knees has given approval in good time)
If it would help either of you three, I could dress up
I like seeing people dressed up.
Are you coming to hang out with the DiS gang?! This is gonna be ace.
That would certainly cheer us up.
but if theres a very big tent \/
I've never been before, and it's my birthday on the Sunday
You know you wanna!!!
but I doubt my friends will want to. Bastards.
i might make it to some bands this year too!
probly not though
truck 2005 was good, but last year's sounded a bit crap for not being able to get to see bands and stuff.
i probably won't bother.
get to see bands (i saw loads), i think it was just that everyone on here was too drunk most of the time to remember.
the barn was too crowded for all the good bands and you couldn't get in. from what i remember, that only happened with electric soft parade and towers of london the year before, and i wasn't really that bothered about seeing either of them.
but you just have to be a little organised. i got in to see everyone i wanted to see.
i suppose you're right.
i'll probably be a little less apathetic when the tickets go on sale.
It's about sitting in a field!
as with truck 2005, i'll be going on my own. sitting in a field on your own isn't that exciting. i spent most of the time in between bands buying rubbish merchandise.
I DON'T EVEN LIKE FORWARD RUSSIA THAT MUCH.
I'll be sitting in a field drinking cider and I'll talk to anyone. Sometimes I'm relatively entertaining. It'll be good honestly!
As long as i remember to get a ticket in time.
and will avoid excess alcohol in an attempt to remember more than 10% of the festival this year
you might be right, I'll just avoid that instead
quality entertainment for us who remember about 50% of Truck :)
I'll try and be just as entertaining this year
and I'm going to try and replicate the AMAZING NON STOP projectile vomiting that I achieved last year.
That's one of my highlights of 2006. Apologies again to BobbyTomGeorge and Branka..
And Futureheads provided the best soundtrack to our night:
You got sick as they were singing WORRY ABOUT IT LATER!
That was my favourite night of 2006, it was just perfect.
try my bestest. might camp solo?
can i get in free?
But you can a free lift down with me and Mr Dalkin. The only price to pay is listening to obscene rap and watnot for hours..
so ner ner nerr nerrr ner.
ALSO: it sounds like one mega party.
this year. but I have no idea who i'll share with.
we can have rough sex
i'm really looking forward to it now.
I'll go this year oh yes.
'Aphex Twin'? The vacuum cleaner attack? Footlong turd in the sink? Good times?
to A Is For Action just the other day.
just.. the logistics!
they must have angled themselves alarmingly.
i'd totally forgotten about that Massive Shit! It was like an entire donner kebab.
we're playing with the Truck organizer chaps...Goldrush and it's tomorrow and it's at the Buffalo Bar. I've never been. DO like trucks though.
buffalo bar are you?...sorry..I've stopped now...that was excessive. apologies. Not much to do.
what, this one?
that's so big,. you could probably set your own laws
Although I'm not bringing that fuck off enormous tent again. Unless people are desperate to share with me and my friend.
all this talk of last years seems to consist of you all getting blind drunk, perhaps I should reconsider
me to son "Troy this is my mate gemma"
"This is my mate brainlove"
"see that large drunk man carrying two drunk tiny young girls under his arms back to his tent? Thats my mate bamos"
"see that drunk young man kissing brainlove, no kissing ho fo, no kissing bamos ,no now his kissing commander cool, no now he's kissing Klaire, thats my ma.....RUN HES COMING THIS wAY
OH NO YOU DON'T
he tasted funny.
i'm not coming.
you fucking are
so this'll be the first time in three years i miss Truck. Ah well.
With bells on. Not literally though.
even when they finally do sell out there'll still be loads going cheap at the end on ebay and the like.
are you bringing the amazing tent of amazingness again, bamos?
me, bamos and sophie, and that might be awkward.
You can come and sleep in the tent that flies with the wind.
It's like Howl's Moving Castle. But with a tent instead of the castle. And built by two drunk men, one of which fell in the river. And it's quite scary.
you can be Howl: the only thing stopping the tent from collapsing and falling to pieces
that keeps it in one piece (isnt it? <suddenly doubting self>)
Until Mike came along and did a better job of it.
I ended up lying between the flysheet and the inside bit holding on to things stopping them fly away.
I AM HOWL :D
(I heard all the girls fancy Howl, is this true?)
(dont know how to spell his name) the fire spirit.
Who fell in the water?
What are we talking about?
but it's Howls heart. So we're both right? I'm confused.
Yes, all the girls fancy you, James :P
I am immune to internet sarcasm :D
