My parents went there twice in two years
there is erm...fortune drive...oh hang on
Or are you from north-west London?
how did you guess?
that you know Rich Manber.
damn. And how do you know where he's from?
A really long conversation. Like a two hour conversation. Then I went to his clubnight and we talked a bit there. Now when I see him, he acts like I'm not even there :'(
to have this problem with a lot of people.
there isnt anyone there? :S
I wouldn't be too upset he wouldn't ignore someone intentionally he is just a bit of a daydreamer type sometimes and either wouldn't register you or wouldn't remember. :)
But I'm going to pretend that that didn't happen and you just made me feel much better about myself. Thanks!
but then you could also try and right me, the horrors.
I just said I tried :P. After you said you knew Rich, I tried to work out who you were to see if I knew you, but I didn't get very far. Although I did find out he was friends with fishplums. Then I asked fishplums how they knew each other and fishplums told me. FUN TIMES.
is fishplums? I did try but gave up when I realised you could be anyone of a number of bristol profiles which i cant actually look at.
Facebook is ruining our lives.
He's head admin on here.
and also the very same Ricardo Manber would rip the piss if he knew I was on the DiS boards
He is the indiest person ever but then also it's just *Rich* I've got pictures of him in a Spunge hoodie with spiky hair! It's not that he's cooler than here it's just all my friends have quite a low opinion of DiS.
Hating Park Street at the moment though. *shakes first in direction of Park Street*
every flippin' morning. My quads and hams are like marble now but there has yet to be a day where I haven't arrived to work LITERALLY melting.
I won't be able to pay my rent.
Well not yet. It's supposed to open on Thursday where Waterstones was at College Green. Can't wait!
I can't stop stroking my calves. Or did you mean the sweating?
It's horrible. I was actually going to say "But Park Street has *always* been on a hill", because that is true, but it might not have been what you were getting at.
this bold proclamation anyway?
James said there hadn't been a Bristol thread in a while, I told him to start one, he told me to start one, I started one.
a few times, and went for a gig once at the Trinity Centre. I got lost on my way there and got ripped off in the taxi to Parkway after the gig :(
what should I do? I already have the Arnolfini bookshop down, but what else? Ideas, people!
i love my hometown so much.
arnolfini art gallery is ace
the watershed for films and food
the zoo for animals
the downs for dogging
And you're forgetting the amazingness of thekla. Even if they do put on some shit sometimes.
Good fruit bats.
favourite bristol road
down there shortly to see how much isn't open
have a nice potter around
but surprisingly embarrassing
if there will at any point be dis drinks in Bristol, I want in.
BriDiStol meat up?
I'll miss out then :(
im only just eighteen me
Most my friends are 18. :)
that was a completely useless post. It would of course be stupidly selfish of me to demand you wait for me to return to the country, but if you should decide that after the 13th would be ok, I wouldn't MIND. ;)
Let's find a gig. It'll be like Trail of Dead last year.
everyone is coming to merzbow no?
see you there though
bristol people are truely nice.
although my friend from guilford tell me we stare at people a lot.
he's just wierd.
What about those Johnny Foreigners at The Kla? Next week is it not?
I'm boycotting that place.
The Louie is probably my favourite venue in Bristol. Not that I can go, so this is something of a worthless conversation.
We didn't expect to get paid, nor did we ask. But, you know. It would have been nice. How are these things supposed to work?
I can get my shoe back :)
and your tupperware!
I'm going to see Black Mountain \m/
and it's in the middle of my exams, so late nights are outtathaquestion.
Is that what you're saying? Black Mountain isn't the same night.
with Chris Tarrant at Oceana? (y)
i just didnt notice you
and quite looking forward to it. Anyone else starting at Bristol this year?
Friday 18th April
4 or 5 Magicians
Who be in? Who be out? Who be shakin' it all about?
"big boy" so-called.
Man Man at Start the Bus. If you could just have some *patience*, I'll start a thread in due course.
we could like, now im just throwing this out there, but we could meet more than once, non?
and betterer. And I can make it more easily. Start the Bus finishes too late.
:'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'(
Is a member of your close family planning on dying then?
I could come up early I guess, but I don't really want.
yeah!? no spiders here!
I'm at the Cube for Phosphorescent that night. Plus I hate Mr Wolf's.
Do you know what I did today? I only went and completely failed to find Cribbs Causeway. Where the fuck is it?? I ended up on the M4 in the end so just gave up. Then there was an excruciatingly hot 15 minute drive to Leigh Delamere services as I still had my coat on as I hadnt anticipated being in the car for so long.
Went past the MOD, through Filton, past Rolls Royce. And out again. There were no signs at all. Poor shout. Poor, poor shout.
you wanted to turn left on the a38 where it splits into northbound/southbound and take first exit on roundabout and follow highwood road all the way. You pretty much are just driving round the airfield and you are there.
I knew it. You'd think there'd at least be some kind of sign from the M32. It's like they're ashamed of the place or something.
that is why the tramline didnt get built
If there's one thing Bristol definitely needs it is trams. There are already rails all over the place!
So... I went to Stutter last night. Pretty empty. When is everyone coming back? Or were they all at JoFo?
I really wanted to go, but no could afford.
There were drums on the floor in front of the stage though so what madness went on there we can only but imagine.
I'm going to the Apple that night for my birfdeah, I'd appreciate it if you could come along with a few hot indie-soc girls in tow.
Where/what's the Apple?
cider bar on a boat near old dukes. £1 for half a pint of old bristolian (8% vol) on mondays!
it's become my favourite pre gig drink stop off. Bath Spa>Temple Meads>The Apple>Venue.
THAT'S WHERE IT'S AT.
you started a thread about how great bristol is and you don't know what the apple is?!?!??!?!?
that's the place that did most of the damage on my birthday last year.
which is coming up in three weeks!
let's delay the magicians gig by a week.
I haven't seen you in a long time, which saddens me.
no idea what i'm doing yet, but it'll be in either newport, bristol or chepstow. for the ones on the welsh side of the bridge, you'd be more than welcome to stay over etc etc.
but yeah! it would be ace to 'hang' again.
I'll bring tekken and bulgarian red wine.
i remember that one last year. amazing incredible scenes
the year before that i fell, half-naked, into a thorny bush following two bottles of red wine and a cat food supper.
need to find a good club night on saturday the 26th for more "FUCK! I'M TWENTY ONE! YEAH! AMAZING! FOALS! YEAHHH!" scenes
that I am also celebrating my birthday on the 26th - will probably be around King Street then onto the Hatchet for Lipstick on Your Collar. Good times.
It's been a while since I've disgraced myself in front of you 'plums.
I am confused
when is this happening?
They need to play better music though.
regulars card and just offer drinks at a proper price all the time. im a big fan of the drawings on the wall, especially the little man who is having a crafty tug
in the toilets the tiles are slanted so it looks like the room is falling on you.
thats pretttty exciting after a couple of double G&T's
Don't you just ask over the bar for one?
OFF THE PRICE OF A PINT
towards buying another pint and getting wasted. And spending exactly as much money.
So in the end, you lose.
I'd go for that.
ROBERT H FRANK ECONOMICS HOLIDAY READING BOOK ARRGH!
thanks for not ruining the magic of economics (y)
After 4 or 5 Magicians?
out Friday night?
Black Lips and No Age though... You going to that?
I might have to move to London now....
i am a fool, i was going to go to cardiff to see them. ha ha.
Finch at TJs?
at the academy?
in welsh wales leik
If it were Bristol, I'd have been well up for it :(
i used to love those guys.
COS EVERY STAR THAT I SEE IS BRIGHTER THAN THE LASTTTT
in The White Hart on Wednesday?
see you there
And why is the Facebook event hosted by "Beef!"? :(
that is going to be sick.
There are about 20 White Hartes in Brizzle.
Brislington has a good one
it looks horrible now :(
i always call it the scream pub. cos of the edvard munch picture hanging outside. easier to make plans, because there are too many white harts and it gets confusing......
I missed a Bristol thread.
Can someone summise please?
Unless it was:
Melbourne (at a push).
they're what make Bristol, Bristol. And I'm returning there tomorrow yay!
i would prefer it to not be 'bristol bristol', when i'm stumbling home at 4 in the morning twatted off my face and completely incapable of climbing up hills. let alone walking.
mind you, the views are nice!
I seem to find them more manageable then. Also, for a Bristol thread there's not nearly enough of the following:
Magic Roll! Thekla! Cliftonsuspensionbridge!
is it slang for pushing a fatty down park street?
my friend works there. he goes in when he's pissed in the early hours and makes himself a roll! ha.
prefer my version, at least you
and possibly some other people unconnected to DiS. Some people may be there on Thursday. Lots will be there the Thursday after (May 1).
may 1st. zinnngggg.
coverage of the British Islam convert who refused to live in W-o-T because it was full of white middle class types only made it on to page 54 of the Daily Mail today. If the Mail aint worried...
hello, wow people love bristol
im a final year at bristol uni and have a radio show on their radio station
it is called trash in the static, and it accompanies club nights that have in the past put on the likes of This Town Needs Guns.
check out myspaces and things, perhaps see you this term x
so does zapsta!
Trash in the Static = pretty cool
we wont be able to do the ol' in before 10 for free thing.
let's do it yeah?
also: lets not sit in the cold corner. or let me have any balloons.
LET'S NOT SIT AT ALL!
We should meet up for drinks somewhere beforehand, where we can sit, then move on to STB, where we can dance.
not really...but i do want to go to the canadian film festival short films film thing there though.
watching bands in an ex-porn theater is brilliant fun.
Appley Appley goodness.
Yes, maybe. I guess. We'll see what other people have to say (in the official Bristol meet thread which I shall start soon).
+ most of them probably aren't in my contacts.
the only thing that pisses me off about start the bus. is the lack of a sodding cloak room. grrrr....
2030 @ The Apple
then on to StB.
Oh and dont forget the rules...Standard issue DiS ID badges at the ready. Only talk to people using dis in phrases, refer at all times to usernames only, mock any outsider who looks interested. no circle jerking (y)
I've lost my standard issue DiS id badge, will I still get it?
Although it's a well known fact that DiSsers can only copulate with their own kind so I suppose it still makes sense.
pase rock saturday?
Pah! Too many hills!
Man Man at Start the Bus, Thursday May 15.
In so far:
it will be sunny and light outside and fun and equally light inside
Say hello to me, and I'll punch you in the cunt.
I need to check my exam schedule though. I have a feeling I've an exam the day after :(
should go to Times New Viking at the Louie.
Cause I can't go, and it's tearing me up inside. Plus an ex disser who is pretty famous told me they might be going.
He's coming back from ATP that day, and is off to America on the 13th.
I'm not sure.
i'll bump this in the morning, i'm off for now.
Man-O-Man hosted by Chris Tarrant.
come on bristolians
are we still on for thursday?
HeartbrokenStar is scarecrow's boyfriend.
I love Man Man.
jp100 is my bitch.
So I imagine so, yes.
anyone else coming along?
capiche (or something)
i dont know
fuck right off
Anyone else for Man Man on Thursday?
I've just been speaking to Jo about it.
Part of Stutter, so FREE entry before 10!
can someone give me some directions and stuff
just tell me how to get there
am currently trying to make sense of a map
the bane of my life.
which sucks. so i think i'm going for the bus.
what on earth?!! thats pretty unusual.
but the returning one is from parkway, and the bus is cheaper.
sexy wink ;)
volunteer to exchange numbers with me in case i get lost, i always fucking get lost
here is adam's
start the bus
how did you know?! *squeals with excitement*
then throws up.
who's got my number fancies a pre-gig drink, do drop me a line
Looks like doors are at 10 tonight, not 9, and there is no free entry (still only £3 though).
Still, I'm ditching revision and coming.
Matt says nothing about it in his Facebook messages.
i'm still really quite excited. I'll try and say hello, if I can penetrate the circle of hot DiS ladies that will inevitably be surrounding you...
just good to know
He told the barmaid I fancied her :(
That's why he told her. Then I was going to give her my number but she went home before I could </3
sad story. you should start hanging out there all the time and stalking her, girls love that.
even though I have an exam the morning after :D :D :(
have you seen her there before, is she like a regular one? was it the short one with funny hair?
It was the slightly less short one with the not funny hair. Aka the hot one. And yes, I've seen her there before.
damn you psychology exam.
politics essay due in the morn.... :(
I study in Bristol, would love to come, but maybe some other time.
St Michael's Hill...any good? Didn't fancy proper halls.
close to the centre and good pubs e.g.the white bear
very good choice sir.
But thanks, good to know it's in a good place! Was tempted by Unite for its proximity to the Academy, but remembered that Frogmore Street's not a particularly nice place to walk alone at night. Enormous halls sound horribly unappealing, I picture numerous students who've never lived away from home before running round screaming and being wacky cunts...accurate presumption?
sorry lady :D
your so right..
wooooo, close to everything there..the gym..the centre..the park..the hospital..park street...PERFECT
:) :) :) :) :) :) :|
That is all.
Dot to Dot meat up next then...all to the fleece for dan deacon or trinity for most serene republic?
def will be at trinity.
probably at fleece also, if dan deacon doesnt clash with something else uberness
smells a bit of piss though, i find. And there's nowhere to park your fucking car.
Meat up Saturday or Sunday?
I think i will be camped out at Trinity centre Saturday but will be in town from 11am to collect wristband and eat lunch and see Bristol City get promotion.
Sunday i think i will be fairly spread, like a cheap tart, across venues.
Also: are we all going to see "dis band" FOTB? and where the frick did SoKo go from the lineup :(
not to be found!! what happened! i am thoroughly dissapointed by this.
If they do I seriously WILL leave Bristol for good this time.
yourself with nothing to do between 17:30 and 18:00 then please come to the Louisiana. You won't even have to go up the stairs as we're in the bar. I didn't even know bands could fit down there but there you go. Yeah? Cool!!
when hull go up.
when will i see you again shplumso? i havent seen you since we djed
gimme a ring on saturday to direct us to a pub.
but srsly, will be supporting hull so hard.
i don't want to make my girlfriend storm out of the pub with me if hull lose. i don't want to unleash rage in front of james and jo though. especially not alone..
if Bristol City lose I'm going to cry and you are both going to be RIGHT THERE laughing in my face.
It's ok though because they are going to win. I hope. PLEASE LET THEM WIN.
I scared many Canadians with my screaming at the tv when they beat Palace.
going to watch Dodos in the Louisiana.
all depends on essay progress though.
YAY TOMOS! Paned?
if you want to come say hello.
YAY for team "barney" cooper
come hither to my pad in clifton and ride in my open top carriage down park street and we can take in some sweet french cinema at le watershed
there would be the chance to feast on some difficult jazz at the elbow rooms?
ARE YOU IMPLYING I TALK LIKE THAT
I'll send you a copy of my schedule.
was really hot and busy today
between 1500 and 1700?
i was wearing tight that were too much and they rubbed into between my legs so i got a bit of heat rash!?
thats bad right!
it was about 1600...
OOOO i nearly got run over by a bike too at about 1530!
if you have given too much information or not enough
sorry about that..
iam clearly cursed...
i can't really go.. too much work..how depressing.. if anyone wants it i can sell it cheap....
Glad I went to Sainsbury's this morning, and I can spend the afternoon at my desk laughing at the people running past caught in the rain. Fools.
Too many exams and all that jazz. Bit gutted. Will definitely go next year though if I can.
Next year I plan on doing as much as possible in May, purely in celebration of the fact that I won't have exams then for the first time in about 8 years.
although only for 2 more weeks now. I saw the thing you're putting on at Thekla - might pop down to that if I'm around at the time. I kind of wish I'd joined Indie Soc this year, but it's a bit late for that now...
We can hang. It'll be fun.
its only spitting now. i was enoying that.
also: you are getting near to the period of day where you get hurt...take cover! Wear rubber soles!
ive put fluffy slippers on
(if i fall over ill be padded)
i have eaten and drunken so i wont have to till after 5 or move...
is anyone going to Friends of the Bride or Mae Shi?
Not really a fan of this Dot to Dot business.
also: balloon fiesta may struggle to get off the ground. Red Arrows on Sunday!!!!!!!
please let it be a little sunny!
much less in Bristol.
Dodos + Euros Childs + SJ Esau sounds like a good meat-up gig as any. 15th Sept
i say Bristol but i also mean Bath:
JoFo and Dananananan @ Moles is only £3 27th Sept and there isnt a Bristol date.
