...you start reminiscing about arguing with Marcofella.
You have all the original podcasts. They were really really good, too :(
of a great new band in the making and we pooh pooh like jaded old farts.
A very recent and apt example of this is a tip for the top and future wonders Craine.
^^ Yeah!! what the hell does Bf mean?
I beg you.

from Senses and think 'Wow, I remember that guy...'
fighting his hardest to get the 1000th post in the 'People With No Pictures on yr profile' thread.
Bring back the old days!
It was for the 2000th post, fact fans.
in the head
on a cool sunday morning. You are in a slight luxurious haze. Meths walks in to your bedroom and although you are half asleep, you can feel his presence. He pats your head, whispers something unintelligible yet comforting into your ear, and you are left with a feeling of awe.
then you say "OMG!"
i'm glad my bosses have all gone home!
If meths didn't exist, I would have made him up anyway.
last time the site was re-designed. and the time before. and the time before...
before and after. It sends a chill down my spine!
it'd make an interesting topic for debate on DiS.
and you realise that you're a completely different person to the one you were when you posted in it back then, and you want to punch the old you in the chops for being such a dickface.
also, when you use "^this" on a meta-meta-meta-meta-ironic level
even when I read little posts like this one I hate myself.
I did that. The trouble is that all my posts are gold. I'll never be able to keep it up in the long run.
and I were talking about this last night...downloading tracks by Vision State just because DiS hand them in the downloads section. I've been here ages but haven't always been as frequant of a poster as I have become since coming to uni. I think I probably have the worst time on DiS : Posts posted ration.
when julesfella claied she was chris tarrant's long lost daughter.
when I'm not sat at a computer.
Although I guess that's more too much than too long.
How long ago was this actually, anyone know?
Correct me if I'm wrong.
or bronze bear, i can't remember.
the old blue boards.
the trolls...(that danish one that lived on a boat)
troll hell, html hell.
when wishpig had about 3 posts.
he was born a few months before my son !
to what I was then... in many ways.
But yes, when you find yourself on the tube chuckling about something that was written on a thread.. or if you try to relay what was said to someone who doesn't know or 'get' DiS... well, that's when it's the wierdest and most geekiest secret horror for me.
OR when members of the public say they know you from DiS... this can be kind of daunting.
That IS fucking old-skool.
how long have you been a member? You have always been one whom I respect a lot. Oh and creakyknees. This may just be because you have both been members for a long time so your names stick in my head.
I worked there for two.
I'm user number 800, which is quite low.
your user number? I think I have been on here since I was in year 10...and I am in first year of Uni. So I think I may be around 4-5 years. Whatever Kid_A is, I am.
and look at the address bar
which is nice round number too!
One of the first things that happened for me on DiS.
and it was "someone who had hacked into my account" :D :D
doesn't even post anymore.
is that intellectual model guy?
i've forgotten his name
but i think he was the one who quoted the classic line about (when sexing a girl on her period) "you pull the little mouse out by its tail...." which then went on to get about 30000 replies.
messages in your inbox from DrFurry.
has he quit?
We're 7171 and 7172 respectivly. Ain't that cute!
if i remember right
was in defence of Placebo when you were 15.
and various other people who haven't used the boards in a couple of years.
in terms of "subject" and "reply".
because you were on the 'pirates side'.
and Crablin death.
Billy Joe getting cancer was on the Rumours board. That should be brought back.
me vs bobbygrindrod and the 'blank thread' (RIP).
trying to listen to John_Brainlove old band...
(I know he still posts occasionally).
the DiS chatroom. :(
and is surprised to see a wall of DiS threads on the results page!
even 'Inside Hoops' (MEGALOLZ etc etc) comes higher up on that than us.
that chatroom was constantly empty! it was shit!
i'm going home.
when he went to Amsterdam for a few days.
but you remember the inexplicable, agonising struggle you went through to be distinctive, recognised, established.
The slight smirk you wore when you saw a DiSism and knew what it meant where others did not.
The miraculous delight you experienced when somebody mentioned you by name in a thread you hadn't posted in.
The first, vaguely uncomfortable pint you had with another DiSer.
The jaded worry which set in around the year and a half mark, where you sat staring at the screen, wondering what you were doing with your life. Your vain attempt to fill the time with something else, like going outside.
The day when DiS stopped being a music website and became a social hub; the same jaded worry which surfaced in your mind, which this time is quashed by the wisdom you have gained over the years; that this in fact the best thing you could be doing, for as long as it takes you to make real friends and a real life.
only to realise you are on pitchfork media
over whether one killers a man properly or seriously
you remember when Sophia barely posted, and had her profile pic as her sat in some kind of blue parka
You remember Klaire joining, and Crablin starting a thread revealing that he'd seen her PM's, and accused several DiS males of fancying her
You remember the original 'downloads' section. And you remember downloading a rather good Clap Your Hands Say Yeah mp3 from it
You remember reading DiS for months before even realising there was a message board on here
You remember that Wiggie briefly loved Noam Chomsky
You remember that the DiS social 'crew' consisted of only about ten or fifteen people that had actually met each other
You remember when everyone wanted Stealthy banned
I still want the cunt banned
and wished he'd get banned.
And then did.
Repeat to fade. This is a recurring DiS theme.
Bring back 'Bowski!
you remember the first mix CD swap
when you remember the time when that annoying guy kept going on about this band called the Arctic Monkeys who were really shit, and kept talking about how they were going to be massive
when you were quite scared about going to Zonino 1.0 because everyone already knew each other really well
