Hope you're alright.
but I'm going back today to buy a bag.
It'll still be there.
cold just about recovered from.
big inbox of crappo work.
but tomorrow night manics at astoria, should be fun.
next week ryan adams
2 days after that holiday to nashville :D :D
From the guy who said their latest ablum is "just totally bad"
and for the other peeps going
and it'll be fun
it went on sale before the album had leaked.
it's going to be good. if we get drunk.
a good word to describe this album
and I can't WAIT!
I'm really excited about seeing them, at the intimate Forum and back on form. Apparently, they are going to a medley of 'Motown Junk' and 'Condemned to Rock and Roll', also rumours of a bit of 'Born to End' chucked in there too. Ace!
for a gig they couldn't give two shits about, to essentially go and laugh at the band thus forcing "real" fans to miss out....
this is exactly what i'm doing.
i should be ashamed.
for the priviledge of doing it. DAMN I'M EVIL
by getting there at 9am to queue to try and get on the barrier in front of nicky.
you should be ashamed.
by simon price so its all good.
"Your Love Alone..." has just come on the radio - good times!
Well, if your earlier posts are anything to go by, it's not surprising I thought that...
people who don't give a shit spend £30 on a ticket and travel into london from the south coast. right, jamie?
i'm like the new stealthy or something.
but without the extra, obv
FUCK YOU CAPITALIST SCUM GO TO YOUR INTERVIEW WHILE WE LIVE FREE IN BISEXUAL GLORY
You must like them to some degree - but I've only ever seen you slag them off.
missed the 10000 blog posts i did about them where i talked about my teenage uber love obsession, and then slow disappointing realisation of their semi-crapness
i'm going cos it'll be fun, cos fun peeps are going, cos it'll probably be a good gig, for nostalgic reasons, and for curiousity's sake cos i havent seen them for years. and to laugh at the rael fans, obv.
YOU DON'T LIKE EVERYTHING THEY'VE EVER DONE!
FAKE FAN! FAKE FAN!
I didn't mean it in that way....
I would never, for instance, go to a Muse gig purely because all my mates were going and I would find it "funny" because someone who is a genuine fan of the band might miss out.
Jamie obv. has connections to the Manics that I was unaware of, and I have taken that statement back.
I can, and I will, just wanted to set the record straight.
Plus, I thought it said "Fake Tan!" - Sean trying to get noticed for once!?
seriously though, all of us love Manic Street Preachers, otherwise we wouldn't be going. But as Jamie says in his blog, they're a very unusual band to have a 'relationship' with. Even though I think much of their recent output is terrible, and now I'm not 15 any more I'm embarrassed by their style of politics, it's hard to stop being in love with them. That's why we're going, and why we also find it funny.
Imagine meeting your first girlfriend 10 years later, and realising that although you now know she's an idiot, she's still utterly beautiful and amazing. Just quite a lot fatter.
i love you.
that a scary girl i was obsessed with at the height of my manics fandom and teenage embarrassingness might be there, and it will be mega-awkward and you can all laugh at my awkwardness. some of you know the whole horrific story so i wont repeat it here. REPEAT AFTER ME OH NO IT'LL BE AWKWARD! WHWHWHAHAH!!!
I was the biggest Manics fan I knew, I won't have any issues like that.
i've just realised i might end up in a similar situation..
we definitely need to get drunk beforehand. jay-so, when are you getting to london?
near my work somewhere?
get yourself to the Wetherspoons on Kingsway, Summers.
in london town? LONDON? which tubes? do i need a wristband?
yes. yes. Holborn (Central and Piccadilly, go left when you come out). yes, did no-one tell you?
my train gets in at 6:45 so i can get to a pub for 7 i expect.
what times do doors open? anyone?
are we going for then or going in later in order to avoid The Enemy? (or not, cos they might be awfully funny).
and the queuing malarky. that way we can just push somewhere on the ground floor and cause some drama on foreverdelaued.
spoonies near holborn station as soon as i can get there after 6:45 then. mine's a kopparberg bludz
i'll try to drink on the train beforehand tho ;-)
you lot keep a space for me in the queue yo.
on little baby nothing.
you're a bad, bad man.
on her little baby nothing
I love that song too, it's being tainted!
cos i'm supposed to know everything little detail about everyone on this forum?!
Ok, I take it back then - but as I said before, I only really heard you sayiong bad things about them.
Seriously guys, that one post ^ would've sufficed rather than just ripping the piss.
Enjoy it then - I hope maybe the live performance might make you re-evaluate the new album.
you never know. i honestly do still have some manics love left in me, but its just...sooo....easy....to ....take....piss. if you know of the fan culture well they're the most lol-some band on earth.
sadly foreverdelayed has been blocked at work. my day is deprived of much amusement now.
It was easier when we were younger and could swept along with the eyeliner and sloganing.
I apologise for coming across as a dick. I just stick up for the things I'm passionate about.
we feel your cultural alienation boredom and despair.
Obviously new to DiS.
I just got a bit tetchy - I need my daily fix. It's ok, pubs are open in 18 minutes.
I'm still ripping the piss.
why would you do that? For £32, this better be the best gig of my life, or there's going to be another 'missing' Manic Street Preacher.
he was a clone of the original, created in order to preserve his INCREDIBLE ACTING TALENT!!! after his untimely death. and to make a sequel to Street Fighter possible. alas, he suffered mental breakdown and thought he was General Bison, and went on a rampage in downtown Houston. marine snipers had to take him out. a sad for all.
I thought he was simply wonderful in "Addams Family", especially his 'tache,
to give in and eat the wire?
see you tomorrow!!
Also, someone left a floater in the office toilet this morning. I think it was the boss.
in the third person again?
tying up veritable bunches of loose ends:
at least i have the tigger song to keep me sprightly.
I just realised a second 20.1" Philips 1680x1050 monitor for my computer back home will only cost about £230 and this one has a 90-degree swivel so I could run one vertically for coding/writing documents and the other horizontal for 'normal' work and make the best desktop ever!
what she's let herself in for, does she?
of Action Man then, who spends his evenings watching the footie and drinking the Stella?
If I'm going to work at home I may as well take advantage of my situation.
I'm happy cause I only have 2 days left in work this week
but thanks for asking.
I spend my mornings listening to Woman's Hour and drinking tea.
but thanks for asking
how about you?
