I'm a mug
I go to register Myspace account under new project's name.
Find that there's already a band with that name
who are shit
get a bit confused as it's quite an individual name
approach them with myspace messages where it's promptly brought to my attention that they're semi-retarded, use "lol" much too much and are called Phil and Dom
Have quite an epic message convo which includes classics such as
"Howv you playd gigs as [band name]? Dat's OUR name lol"
Even offer them a nominal fee for the myspace url, all the time acting diplomatically in the face of wanton text speak and baffling replies.
They tell me that they got the name from the chap in the our (old band) myspace photo (Tom our guitarist) when he was drunk in Brighton.
I make a bit of a twat of myself but they relinquish the url to me free of charge.
I celebrate a bit and am relieved and stuff.
I go liek WTF?! at said Tom
Old band bassist emails me to inform me that it was a fake page with fake band pictures and even some very odd fake songs.
He did it all for Lulz.
I bet you've pulled Tom up on his use of the English language in the past!
Nice one Tom :D
Also: sucker!!! ;)
who was talking to this girl on IRC and being utterly, utterly filthy without realising that it was a bunch of guys stringing him along and distributing the transcripts around the school. They were hilarious and a half.
So, I know nothing about your practical joke drama, but you've got to love the internet.
Sorry to hear that. :(
