I want to hear "the goss".
I want to see some pictures so I can see who I'm talking to.
Laura Groves was amazing
Yndi Halda rocked
and I got hugged by a smelly man called Donald
it was rilly rilly good, I think. Nothin went wrong, which is quite unbelievable really.
It was very nice to see so many DiSers. You're all luffly.
I stand by the rest of the typos. But that one annoys me more than the rest.
But being new and all i didn't think i really had the right.
The kitchen show was something special. And i'm sorry to guy in hat for being knackered and slightly off-kilter.
It was really really good :)
that was me!
...if you are guy in hat.
do you have a real name, or were you christened that?
all the bands were top. lanterns on the lake fit the church like a very tightly fitted glove.
paul, fran and laura were mesmerising, and wintermute sounded surprisingly tasty with all the echo!
i thought we did pretty well too...! thanks to the guy who gave tom a plaster, he was bleeding everywhere.
who won the raffle?!
are called worriedaboutsatan!
(sorry, plug over, back to talking about the day...!)
did you think i was a good public speaker? i'm a good public speaker aren't i.
everyone being fun
Kid_A and Parsefone wrestling on a bench
dancing alone to Julian Cope at the cockpit
jasmine & claire's company
thanks to werk and cheap-tat for letting me stay#
keith_tele's explanation of special relativity
it were mega fun!
mindyou, they are awful pictures. PV will have better ones, like of bands and stuff!
some folk don't have facebook :(
if anyone has a photo of me in my santa hat i'd like pointed in its direction please.
big up to the lovely folk who put the event on, it was brilliant. as were the folk who were there.
i have about 2 hours to pack and then try and get the evil train company to give me my train ticket minus my bank card, what fun.
I'll send you it when they're on my computer.
So so sorry.
Particularly heartfelt apologies go to:
- cheap-tat. You will have to come down to my end at some point so you too can take advantage of someone's kind hospitality and vomit copiously all over their stuff. I never thanked you either. Please think of some way I can make this up to you
- Kid A. You did win that thumb war. I was wrong to think that physical abuse could change that fact
- Paul Marshall, for laughing all the way through your set
- Jasminepearson, who I seem to remember recommending Canal Street as a great night out
- Anyone I talked to after about ten
Thank you very much WildSon, Guntrip and Paul for putting it on, it was uniformally excellent.
A memory has just surfaced. Why did you get into that highchair?
I was sleeping so I didn't know and it was gone when I awoke so therefore it didn't happen :)
ouch. my head/body/liver/everywhere.
definately worth it though, was an ace gig and wonderful to meet all the lovely dissers!
apologies for my behaviour, as usual.
special thanks to andy for the chicken bakes, paul for the awesome dancing, daniel for putting up with me being stupid and everyone for being rather dandy, fine examples of awesome fun.
Everyone was just LOVELY.
I was quite mashed.
I'm all about the pain today.
I think. Maybe with some slightly better organisation. And stuff. Yeah!
It's a christmas miracle that everything ran smoothly. All the new people I met were wonderful, although it all was a bit brief. Nice to see friendly familiar faces too...
Thanks so much to joel especially - he doesnt post here much but did tons of work towards the event, and also daniel, paul, and steve :D
Also, we need to play more Mario Kart next time. And not just 100CC... pft!
Did I miss much at the cockpit afterwards? did you all get IDd? :(
you missed the worst clubnight in the history of mankind. it was a fail of such spectacular levels that it kinda became fun again. i can't decide if the best thing was the £2 double vodka and lemonades made with the worst, most evil vodka i've ever had, or the DJ in the METAL ROOM playing 'Guerilla Radio'.
followed up with "all my best friends are metalheads" no less. THAT'S HOW HORRIFYING IT WAS.
That'd be properly brilliant.
Moshing >>>>> pansy indie dancing, whatever that is.
but it might have been after i wandered off to the indie room or something.
you should come to ROCK! here next time a bunch of us go, the only allowances they make for the last five years of alternative/kerrang! music are fall out boy, p!atd and paramore. it's 2001-tastic.
you should've seen the look of glee on bamos' face when they played Drowning Pool.
Awwww man :(
was seeing Daniel shake his head in a disapproving fashion when Brand New was played and leaving me by myself in my very own special way. I love Brand New.
Great to meet Tim, parsefone, Steve utm and Fiona and catching up with some familiar faces.
You all didn't scare my mate John, congratulations on that.
Walking to Greggs on a sunday morning when you're hungover is a surprisingly pleasant experience.
I'm glad I didn't have to see or smell that vomit in the kitchen.
Does anyone know what happened to my Paper Laser?
I really enjoyed Lanterns On The Lake and Yndi Halda. Acoustics in that place were wonderful.
Putting Die Hard 2 on the projector was an inspired choice.
It's a winner.
thanks again for the chicken bakes!
No problem at all!
that second one when down a treat with my 3litres of cider and dvd-fest on sunday night :D
hope you get your paper laser back!?!!?! (sorry i may have had a hand in daniel confiscating it)
today just incase I don't get it back.
was wonderful to meet you! and to be greeted with such exultations about my mixtape skillllz :) I EXPECT A MIXTAPE ON MY DESK BY THE END OF JANUARY YOUNG LADY
for giving me some gin.
i had SO MUCH fun yesterday. i love everyone x
i had the WORST BUS RIDE EVER. why did i decide to get a coach? not fun. two people threw up TEN MINUTES BEFORE WE GOT TO VICTORIA! so, what, you had hold it in for five hours, but those last ten minutes, which we've mostly spent sat in traffic, is too much for you?
Leeds to London coach journeys are the worst thing ever. I've done it about half a dozen times this year :(
where you on the national express or the megabus?
i remembered we didn't stop either, despite pulling into two service stations for no reasons i could work out. and we drove through luton. and the bus driver was really rude. YAY BOTTOM END PUBLIC TRANSPORT! i'm stumping up the extra for the train next time.
MY TRAIN HOME ALMOST DERAILED AND TOOK 8 HOURS LONGER THAN IT WAS MEANT TO. stupid trains.
Russell Sharp was a twat though, he totally saw it as an opportunity to get 15 seconds of fame. He said he was woken up by the impact in the thing on the bbc, which is the opposite of what he said when we were sitting around discussing it in the buffet bar. idiot.
i showed my appreciation of it in pistachio shells.
i was the girl the unfortunate looking man introduced you to by saying "this.. is CLAIRE!" and then i said "don't introduce me as if i'm a celebrity please". god my stories are boring.
has he kept the pistachio family safe, do you know?
he's a destructive type.
killed whole families. Perhaps they are of the same breed. :/
Is it wierd i get a little thrill out of writing/saying Voldemort?
i am not the author. tom did it up there though i think.
it's like genuinely exciting when I'm not The Drunkest Person At An Event.
it's like it was all for nothing
i like leeds! it's great!
my highlights all revolved around me:
- when i announced the winners of the raffle with catriona.
- not throwing up
- jasmine telling a northern man i would probably sleep with them because i am northern
- the coach journeys. like ripping off a plaster. strangely erotic.
- introducing myself to timwerk and being totally spurned more than anything ever in my life
- talking about northern accents
- hearing northern accents
- fihiki whispering "that's parsefone!" in everyone's ears
- so much more
when I first met him he was talking like Prince Philip. For about 3 hours. Then he spazzed out alone to Aphex Twin, and before you could say Bell's Irish Whiskey, we were friends.
do i too sound like Prince Phillip?
judging by his speech the next day.
though i had planned as a joke with my mate to spend the entire 3 days talking like that so i think thats where it came from...
he spent the rest of the evening apologising. and then i explained to him in full detail exactly why trying to put his santa hat on my head after i had said no numerous times is just like raping me.
you're fantastic too! :)
i take back any apology for spurning you, you deserve it.
thank you to everyone who came - it was great
anylove for twenty-seven club?
...we were really nervous seeing as weve only been together for about a month...but it was great fun
paul smacking his head really loudly on a pew in very quiet yndi halda bit...you fool!
and your bassist is incredible.
for putting us on joel, we had a wicked time! sorry we missed your band too, we were a little fragile after coming back from a gig in brum the night before!
I want to see catriona's pictures. I'm mega-jealous of her camera.
You must log in to see this page.
so I don't know what else I can do, really.
The one of you in the santa stetson is quite something.
i did have someone explain to me how to make them publicly visible but i can't remember, something to do with the album privacy settings or something!
how much I can't be arsed looking for those settings.
was daniel confiscating it from paul who was using it knock down cans of lager...
do you not remember?
Everyone had a go of it at somepoint or other I think.
It's basically paper on a stick that extends and comes back after.
It can be used to hit people a few rows infront of you on the back of the head, annoy people who are playing mario kart or what you decided to do, which was knock over cans of beer :)
Although I did fail to get into someones mouth after they had challenged me to do so.
I had a great time and getting lots of free band stuff after spending a fiver on raffle tickets was nice :)
that was me :)
Apologies all if I wasn't being my usual effervescent self, I was pretty hungover and tired and sober, plus I was feeling a little stupid after having taken a wrong turn on the way to the gig and ending up in Liverpool. But yeah! Fun! Lovely to meed Kid_A and Klaire and Nestor and Tristan for the first time (the latter of which showed Guantanamo-style levels of persistence in his attempts to get off with both me and my girlfriend) and to see Danny and Timmy again. Shame I missed utm's universally acclaimed set (I was soundchecking) but Fran Rodgers was good and I also enjoyed being harrassed by tramps. Also I hope everyone enjoyed how drunk my girlfriend/band mate was and that you enjoyed the rum she was forcing down everyone's throats!
were bothering so many people :(
Kinda an ironic problem. Do we ask the homeless to pay to get into a homeless-charity fundraiser??
Thanks for playing! :D
the tramps were brilliant
i wouldnt allow him to take a yndi halda tshirt so he asked for the tshirt i was wearing...
i'm on scary intetner hotel and can't be bithered to correct typos LOLZ
- telling nestor everyone looked like him (especially the guy in the black jacket who gave steve a pistachio ut family)
- steve's set was the best thing eveer
- cats in paris were liek, the second best thing ever
-meeting parsefone, OMG
- goinginto a vestry. a VESTRY. it was like a rock star's dressing room
- the japanese food
- the crazy locks on the toilet door n meant i kept on walking in on people peeing
thank you nestor and joel and dannyel. i had fun.
happy christmas everyne.
sorry aboyt the typos.
usually mu spellings is so nice.
would have made michael's life exciting! LOLZ I DID A FUNNIE
feel free to steal photoz if you like, i even have one of phil collins :)
