out of your relationship with DiS.
Cos overrall i'd say i've got a lot.
So yay for DiS
my current tiled desktop image of that bathrobe picture that was on arsenal's website before they realised it was really dodgy and took it down
quite a few brilliant bands
a few brilliant people
wasted a lot of time.
but then I've also lost about 8 hours a day, so I'm not sure any of it was worth it.
Killed lots of office boredom, the paper plane and helicopter games, new bands and nice people :D
and i also got to see 2girls1cup.
These two things may or may not be related.
who is that?
if you don't mind?
i want a DiS boyfriend! ha that'd be so funny..everyone would go "how'd you meet?" and you'd have to either say you MET ON THE INTERNET or make up a really interesting circus story or something
go out with other DiSers....
I'm surprised by the lack of dirt that comes out on these boards considering. Is there some blood oath Dis'ers take that forbids them from spilling the beans when it all goes tits up?
I can't speak for other people, but we don't see the point of dragging our personal stuff onto the internet and made an agreement to not do it.
I've seen it happen on other boards. Terrific entertainment value for those not involved, but pretty horrible for those who were involved.
I hadn't really considered that happening.
I think DiS has largely avoided that....with a couple of minor exceptions.
and if you spill something about one person, chances are they can do it too.
and you'd both look like cunts
i DO have a DiS boyfriend! but we didn't meet on here, so that's why i forgot :(
oh i feel sheepish :)
lols, rofls and near impenetrable in jokes.
the most horrible thing i have seen in a long time!
And a rather humiliating afternoon in Regents Park a few months ago.
- a far greater conciousness of what's going on
- introduced me to Last.fm
- prompted into buying an i-pod
- Drownloads especially for Fanfarlo, Holy Fuck and The Twilight Sad
- introducing me to a lot of bands/acts
- discovering experimental music
Well, most of the bands this site plugs are pretty awful, so musically absolutely nothing. The community features, however, are pretty snazzy.
Some gigs, some snidey comments on the boards, me loves it.
and the music suggestions are constant. I haven't been here long but I'm happy :-)
but when the chips are down, its been good.
from about 2004 so a fair few, well, a Lot of bands that tbh i would never have heard or got into without recommendations etc.
lots of office boredom killed in the last few months.
lots of excellent youtube links.
quite a few gigs too that kinda links with the first one but i mean specificaly like Russian Circles at Water Rats, DiS gigs.
Heard loads of bands I may have otherwise missed
Made some awesome friends
Got to attend two Zoninos
a love for British Garden Birds
many, many fantastic bands/gigs
met some ace people
plus, learnt that not many people use the question mark option on minesweeper.
i hope you asked for a refund.
ive made a few posts when i needed help on techie stuff and people have been kind enough to help
I've met a few people
Gone on a mini roadtrip from Oxford to Secret Garden Party
Killeds a whole load of time in my old job.
Discovered a few bands
Watched 2girls1cup and 2girls1finger
Received 1 threat of death from an angry man in Northern Ireland via a PM
Secured tickets to Morrissey after a DiSer posted the pre-release link.
Watched more You Tube videos of Ella Strawberry's bunny 'Trousies' (Yes, really, that's what it's called!) than is strictly necessary.
several really awesome friends
more self confidence! (maybe)
better taste in music! (probably)
and loads of other things too.
not a hell of a lot, i don't really know that many folk here due to living in scotland and well... not knowing many folk on here! most of the people on here i DO know, i was friends with previously.
although i have made a couple of friends which is always good, so it has not been a gigantic waste of my time. hurray.
- Given myself the twitching attention-span of a two year-old child constantly refreshing threads and the likes
- Found a way to neatly intertwine my actual and internet social lives.
- Become even more of a music geek.
- Found a bassist
- Conjured up a fictional and cartoonish underground crime world
a social life in london
much better use of the internet (as in, most of the other stuff i do on the internet i found out about on DiS)
