It's these new jeans
not by a festival...
I'm trying to cheer myself up by listening to MP3s on something called "The Runout Groove", but there's a really, really rubbish Leonard Cohen cover on there by Melys and it's kind of put me off.
listen to the nomeansno stuff loud!
The Day Everything Became Nothing
you get your pressie tomorrow!
Also, cheers for the Dick Dale/Black Keys stuff. Two fine acts who I'd almost forgotten about.
Also also, listen to this!
i've got 2 more black keys sessions somewhere i think...
I've liked what other stuff of theirs I've heard, but that cover didn't do it for me. Maybe I like the original too much. It's here, anyway:
i still haven't remade your truck/birthday cd that rich took last time around, i'm crap :(
1 x tent
3 x boxers
2 x pointy white shoes

I'll find someone to sleep on
I ain't packing til tomorrow morning though, otherwise I'll be up all night trying to work out qwhat I've forgotten.
I hear you're my new boyfriend now?
please PM me. and i'll attempt to answer any questions.
or, PM any well knownish DiSsers for my phone number. thanks.
Leaving Truck 11am 24th September.
have fun everyone.
i have 'packed':
tent (+ pegs)
i presume that's all i need.
I haven't got a lot of things, actually. It might be an interesting weekend.
the parrot with the laser eye beams, you'll be fine!
I miss that parrot.
can deliver to Oxford.
I have got carrots, however, which allegedly render torches totally unnecessary.
i thought i had one but all i could find is my plastic hammerhead shark which emits a small, red, LED, which i bought in the natural history museum. oh god.
i did try doing some last minute camping shopping in argos earlier but i've never been in an argos shop before so i got scared and ran out...
I've just been out and bought 2 crates of Budweiser though so I guess it could be worse.
I wonder if I'll meet any DiSers this weekend. Any offers?
you'll spot us, we'll all be together. I'll be down the front for I Was A Cub Scout, definitely.
I actually have no idea who is playing.
until I saw this today: http://www.drownedinsound.com/articles/2406035
now I'm excited!
Are you still at work? :(
I'm just about to leave, though.
as I can't open XL spreadsheets. I just had a look at Doubtful's lineup thread on the festivals board and I can count the bands I'm actually bothered about seeing on the fingers of one hand.
also, I saw about 5 bands last year, it feels like!!
Exit the Wizard
Baggy Bummer and the Bumbags
Marching Marge and Her Fists of Fury
Jimmy White and Kung Fu
400 Gallons of Whale Sperm
Stabbing an Elephant's Toenail
Fingerprinting and the Cravat
Thomas Blood and the Crown Jewels
Access To Fishplums
Wanking on Cider
Old Horse Face
Disguised as a Horsebox
Smoke Threw The Wond!
I'm excited now.
I apologise in advance if I drunkenly apprehend anyone shouting their username, just go with it.
I reckon Jamie Summers is the most recognisable of us. I look pretty much like my profile picture, although I probably won't have glasses on.
you would probably not have a cat either, but you have a new profile pic, and two great posters!
my head hides a Bonnie Prince Billy one too. They're by that blindjoedeath guy.
but given i've got at least 6 screenprints i've yet to do anything with, i should invest in framing them first.
are you telling him to just look for someone who looks like the singer from cribs?
Well, I'll be wearing the same shirt as I am in my (newly updated) profile picture tomorrow, so if anyone spots me say hello!
not drinking is bad for your health, so a couple of banana bread beers have sorted me out no end!
anyone got any suggestions as to nice canned alcohol i could take with me, and am likely to find en-route to the banter bus tomorrow? I stared blankly at the shelves in the supermarket earlier.
get Orchards from Morrisons!
i'm not a huge cider fan other than kopparberg tbh
it's fake Archers peach schnapps. £7 a bottle!
if i don't find owt better i may well go for that, just after a weekend of drinking kopparberg at connect i really don't want to drink shitty lager
to use our MusicDating stall in the market as a DIS meeting point. It wont be busy, ha! :'(
Right, better start packing. Gotta leave at 6. fkit.
ps We've got a couple of honeys helping out on the stall...
20-something skinny indie type WLTM similar for ice cream-sharing, little finger-linking and heckling, OHAT, GSOH WTF BBQ LOL.
See you all tomorrow.
AT THIS TIME
come round for an organic beer if you like?
those lanyards sponsored by the BBC that tell us what time all the bands are on? Cos I haven't printed out a lineup!
come steal one from me
i'm so excited i could do wee!
I don't have the plastic part yet....I figure, drink enough on the bus I'll only need a normal sized water bottle for the rest!!
after tipping Orchards into the bottle. I feel quite fancy now.
like chicken tonight.
oh the joys of communal computers.
feel fancy now sophie for tomorrow we will be drinking ditchwater....or something....
it's pretty exciting.
irn bru wkd
lime bacardi breezer
my old housemate used to drink nothing but blue WKD. It was disgusting.
or something useful.
rather than drawing on cups.
I was so meticulous about packing, I actually forgot to take a sleeping bag, and a tent. I'm not joking.
At least I had the cutlery and the tinned crab.
I'm actually quite looking forward to this weekend now!
Bet it pisses down.
might try and pick up a fresh one tomorrow.
Or some sardines.
and I should be leaving in about half an hour. Oops.
So, so, so excited.
I'm not packed, I'm tired and I have to leave soon :(
Just got out the shower and paked a pillow into my bag. It's SO on!
