A bit worrying?
I never talk about this place. DiS is like a mistress.
and at the end of the night, out the front, with friends, was chatting to this guy. He said, 'I think I know you and we have met before - you were a bit scary' - or 'I used to be scared of you.'
I just got a myspace from this guy (I must have given him my url - don't recall - I was pretty plastered) and he just messaged me saying he knew me from DiS as he occasionally posts on here, AND that he wasn't scared of me any more.
I do not know his user name as he logged off...
This was out with a social group of people that really, I'd be extremely surprised would have anything to do with, or knowledge of DiS.
I guess it just demonstrates the popularity of this board.
But it still surprised me all the same.
a new low.
I'd feel they'd found out about my secret past. BOO!
he said because he knew lots of jonathans, he had me down as 'john plums'.
i get 'fish' every now and then, but only certain DiSers are allowed to call me 'shplums'. these are: monpot, twentynine, joeymahone and yo_soy_welshmun.
at The Salsbury in Green Lane. The DJ was a friendly chap that really looked like JacobJones. I asked him if he was and he said no, but, he said he knew him and went on to say what a nice chap he was. I cant remember what else he said cos i was so hammered.
which is preferable to Dave. Isn't it, fishplums?
david is quite nice. from now on, whenever we have our brief IRL chats, i will call you david.
moribund rang me up last night to confirm it was me who was sending him my new number, only to try to abort the conversation a minute in. LORD, that was an awkward 30 seconds or so.
what is an irl friend?
you know.. real life?
i don't know how else to put it.
i get you now.
if people call me anything other than tom i refuse to respond. you should try that.
i had a slight inkling that you weren't being funny but i went ahead with it anyway :(
In Real Life.
ta ta for now.
tracked me down on here because she had seen me when i had been on it before. i thought this was a world seperate from my other life. :(
none of my 'real' friends come on. they call me a loser for it.
a profile of one of my best friends on here, it was a big surprise.
makes me glad i'm so uncontroversial on here though...
unknown person: "oh yeah, i've lurked on DiS for ages now. what's your username?"
me: "it's fishplums"
unknown person: "you said our band was the worst band you'd ever seen live!"
awkward situation: "hi! i'm an awkward situation!"
what band was that (or are they still lurking)?
i saw them support foals a couple of weeks later and was well impressed, so went to eat some humble pie in front of afore-mentioned band member.
we're alright now! still, i was sober enough that night to feel the awkward situation tick by second by second.
Which, given that neither of us are from Liverpool, and I was only there for one day, was an incredibly bizarre coincidence.
our hotel room was actually directly above where you were playing, too.
i like DiS to be a safe place. i only have one person from here who i regularly see, and that stemmed from DiS originally. it would worry me if the two worlds became overly linked.
You and others seem ashamed of your interests that stem from here. Why is that?
and I've sasid who I am and they've said "oh, you're moker!" BUT THAT WAS ABOUT IT.
Posting on DiS is cool... it's all the other internet activity I'm worried about!
but i enjoy the slight semblance of anonymity that DiS provides. i like to think that the internet is somewhat distinct from real life because the way i behave on the internet isnt necessarily the way i behave in real life.
But I didn't say anything. Even though you;re huge and I couldnt; see future of the left cos of you.
I coplained about it here aftwards though ;).
I have seen lots of you out and about but I haven't approached any of you apart from Theo I think
never seen you before.
I was thinking of jasmine pearson.
the rest is still true
