by met you can interpret this as irl or otherwise.
My morning walking to work tally is two Joe Mahons and two of you. WHO WILL WIN IN 2009?
Some other people at ATP whose usernames escape me...
DiSers I plan to meat in 2009: Thommo!
I forgot Crablin - who has been beyond generous to me.
And of course, Sam CG, which was brilliantly entertaining.
Lets do this chronologically...
I think that's everyone...oh, I was introduced to Darkpigeon but I don't think I spoke to her.
I thought Darkpigeon was a short, timid looking girl. Saying that, I was pretty battered when I was introduced to him/her...!
I'm going to put the blame on Johnny, his introducing skills clearly aren't up to scrath!
Whoever it was, I met them at ATP. I think so anyway. Maybe I was imagining it.
Right before Kool Keith? And Stealthy was there, and I called him Pizza Hut Guy?
My memory of ATP is quite hazy, for many reasons.
And just bumping into people at gigs.
and it was glorious
I met Ho Fo this year, after flirting with him all over this board. Wonderful man.
well, we met briefly a year ago, but then I gave her the rutting of a lifetime after zonino.
are you still drunk?
I can taste tequila.
Yes, we shall have to go for a drink in 2009. Preferably on the day Crank 2 comes out.
we suffered for your art.
(just you, I was upset about Knapp)
One day I'll thank you, when I become a big strong man like you.
You were there? I thought I'd done a good job of being friendly and conversational!
Sorry for not saying hi :(
That's what literally *everyone* has said. It depends on who else is going. If you're going to be there, I guess I could put in an appearance. But not if I'm in Bristol. If I'm in Bristol, I'll only go if Mehodor goes. That's where you rank - slightly below Mehodor.
stay chez moi
I'll give you the let down of your life.
You insensitive bastard
but I drove myself through the pain barrier. And I'll do it again tonight godammit.
you were especially great
I suspect there may be more.
Crablin, Bamos (who's started stalking me at non-league football), Tom_fom_Sparks, Homesick Alien, Olegrich and a load at DiS Football.
I can't help but think that was typed with disappointment.
Had we won both matches that day on the other hand.... :)
I'm getting better at supporting brom now - last time they got a last minute equaliser. Watched 4, lost 3 (1 on pens), drawn 1
And far, far too many others as well. I think I've met about 30 of you now, and I don't even live in London. Royter chasing after me at ATP screaming 'CHUFF!' in front of all my normal friends was a highlight.
I know they may seem like a big bunch of internet losers, but they're actually just nerds.
I just can't remember introducing you to anyone off here. Merry Christmas to you too. If you don't come to OMG! on New Year's I'll kill myself.
you probably weren't in a good state to remember.
see you at your funeral. don't drink & drive on christmas day. tell sara i love her. x
you must mean ATP - and I seriously don't remember a thing about that. Glad to help! You better be doing something incredible on NYE that isn't some sort of ridiculously twee bring-and-buy cake sale in a treehouse or something.
me and lara are going to sit at home and make bunting!
You were great!
That was a great day!
dunno who anyone was tho
were you the one wearing the blue shorts?
I was the bald one
Before the next match can we have a special thread where everyone posts a police mugshot of themselves. For those who have never been arrested a full length photo of you in front of a well-known monument will do.
apart from Diver, who didn't know who I was.
i couldn't be sure though
Oh, you were at TANP, weren't you?
i had to strategically guess who most people there were really. Except the people i'd met before of course.
including passing a bored looking alcxxk and deciding not to engage him in conversation in case he merely looked at me blankly. For some reason I have it in my head that most prominent DiSers, as well as people who work on the second floor here and Alexei JoFo, don't know who I am when they clearly do.
but it was more a process of elimination i guess.
ps. merry christmas Simon
I think it was '08 anyway. God, I'm bored at work.
codswallop, bundoz, wireless-enthusiast, alex-in-ciderland, lofisongsarethebestkindofsongs, jook, danger, tennesseelamb + others I didn't really talk to. Was wasted. guntrip a few times now. alcxxk, zapsta and gabrielle/dolly on sunday at the windmill.
ps. Nice work dan-thw for organising that. Brilliant night had!
nice to meet you
nice to meet you too
I had a massive grin on my face during your set too. Good stuff.
maybe it'll turn up later
(didn't want to seem rude and abrupt!)
Nice to meet you. Still not sure why you're familiar though. hmmm.
IndieAndy_Jones at Reading fest x
and i don't think we even mentioned Friends or Wayne's World once!
did we talk about? I can't imagine us having a convo without talking about the above topics, or maybe Neighbours?
we probably just slagged off all the other dissers, like we normally do via PM.
...I do remember talking about FOTL left though, and you having a bottle of wodka in your bag or summat
that's cos we're THE BEST ONES!
I did indeed, that Reading cider and wine was nasty.
more than the previous 3 years combined, all were nice
i meated fishplums the most though. a saturday morning isn't the same without him fast a sleep on the living room floor.
i'll miss that this saturday :(
The DrillNBass guy who is her bf
Another guy who is called something like gambas (I don’t even think that’s his proper name either), but he doesn’t seem to post no more…
That's all I think
that was yes_! I know we're both dashingly handsome, but c'mon. Next time we meet, though, we'll have the greatest thumb war ever known
We done partied
have a great one, wub you xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
But LOADS before then. Although apparently nobody remembers. But thats understandable, its not like I've stayed in contact. :(
Except with my girlfriend obvs.
Remember me, Tom? REMEMBER?!
all genuinely nice people, even royter, which is surely breaking SOME statistical law
Good to finally meet Bamos (and the ladyfriend) and see who my musical doppelganger & namesake is
Also met many of you fine folks at the football (olegrich / verbal / etc) and a few of you at a drink at some Sam Smiths. But I was a bit hammered that night so can't remember who (lemonbrickcombo? tom_from_sparks? many others...)
Oh.. and Dan_thw. But I knew him already so he doesn't count.
Next year I plan to leave a trail of mini Mars bars extracted from unwanted Christmas calendars all the way from Broadmoor in an attempt to meet Marcofella.
bizzy, douchebag, (captain) fishplums, utm_usic, dash_and_blast, and some posh Altrincham crotch-stabber called moousee ;)
Sorry, and scarlet_apples too.
i wish introductions had been done sufficiently at the start of the night; could've done without that bit where everyone went "OHHHH" and stared at me.
pleasure was all mine though.
now now children
so, none at all
Going to drinks and then Something Serious one Friday night was slightly overwhelming, as was playing football. If I’ve met you and haven’t included you, it’s because I am terrible with names, especially if it’s different to your DiS handle.
This year I’ve (knowingly) met
Ricky_Blue (I think that’s his username)
I’ve also (unknowingly, at the time) met
fihiki (I think)
There are some more that I’ve seen from afar or that have come to our gigs, and several that came to our chalet party that I really can’t remember, and probably many more that have had one of our flyers thrust into their face.
I guess I’ll see a few more of you at Zonino.
no offence, but i dont remember it
I was your right back/centre back for most of the second half at the football.
*I'm going to break your nose.
Shame they both have illustrious and dashing boyfriends.
You're one of many that I'd probably now recognise but don't know the name of.
We spoke briefly in the pub afterwards.
Nice to have met you. Must do it again sometime!
He played gay chicken with my friend.
but caught it out of the corner of my eye: http://tinyurl.com/a3zzno
oh man, I was totally tricked. I WAS TRICKED!!
but I knew him before I started DiSing! Maybe me and the Jonty will make a mission and you can witness my curly locks.
Tom from sparks (I think)
I didn't introduce myself to Mr Alcxxk but I think we spoke briefly when he was with Stealthy and know I recognise him as the bloke with the moustache that I keep on seeing around.
He goes to SOAS
thanks, ferdy. you're pretty much the only one on my list. you ruled as you put on a hrash night of noise in soas. awesome stuff.
or a Hell yeah??
but I was only meant to be a hell yeah. HELL YEAH!
The best thing about being out with Bamos is that there is always a pre and post pub trip.
I was being both of us. I looked ravishing.
how were they?
Not heavy to the touch.
Mudhoney were good as well.
now that I have hacked mine off
I haven't publicised it on here or to anyone yet, as I want to get a bit more content on there and stuff. One of my new year tasks is to get that motherfucker up to speed. And to learn to do proper computer stuff.
Hopefully I'll have more £££ in the new year.
THAT SOUNDED LIKE SKINNY PUPPY!
NO IT SOUNDED LIKE JOY DIVISION!
i'll say hi properly next time i see you about
they are all really nice. It must be fairly overwhelming to meet like 80 of you at once.
I might listen to the ATP Wooden Shjips set and laugh at the guy's funny voice again to cap off the afternoon
Merry Coconut Christmas one and all
and melesmeles and seeingotherpeople and roastthemonaspit and olegrich once or twice and john_brainlove and lemonbrickcombo and chris alcock and fihiki and nestor and jamie_summers and maybe some others.
tobythecat though, mindblowing, best of all the animals!
i bought yr mbv ticket n ting.
no one ever remembers me :(
you. i had you in mind but couldn't remember. i remember you well. also i met zapsta. lol.
werk, keiths_tele, bizzy, gowman, douchebag, whiterussian, moousee, dash_and_blast, utm_usic, dionisio, katehewett, Ricky_B, fihiki, hannnnah.. um, i think that's it? i do have the worst memory in the world though.
i think i just forget people i talked to before this year or liked a lot a long time before i met them, so don't take it too hard. unless that's your kind of thing.
MelesMeles, thephotobooth, walkingwithwolves, Dicko and JohnM.
so sorry for being rude. Its just my 'way'.
i just figured you disliked me.
and I was mostly thinking: "is that crablin? Is that crablin? Is that crablin?" (next to you) and weighing up how likely it was that crablin would have any idea who I was. I decided he probably wouldn't though.
drunk and not concerned with the quality of music.
well i meated jake kenako in january and he's one of my favourites, even though i HATE HIM.
i think it was only the first time i met harru this year, and johnM and royter and brusma and bleak, i think was only this year oh and melesmeles in may oh and daisysteiner
I suppose so. I met a fair few folks, you know who you are. well most of you do. Basically everyone i've met off here I met this year except for 4 folks i think. One of those never posts (HI JASPER), two of them mainly post for promotion, and the other one looked at my insides.
it feels like we're old enemies.
you'll fall at my feet and whimper like the toad you are?
merry christmas and happy new year, I'm off to catch my train to brummidgeham and then Derby
I'm gonna be an uncle in July/August! (If all goes OK)
but same to you and have a lovely time
congrats on the uncle-dom :D
i became a proper auntie this year. babies are cute
dicko and jimi and bizzy and walkingwithwolves and fishplums and i possibly spoke to others at jingleallthedayer without knowing.
Gave up after counting almost 60 and realising I'd forget someone and offend them. But yeah I'd not met any before this year so there you go.
You're a pretty good bunch, you lot.
Avoided fewer, and liked most.
which I've used 12 times since Friday.
potimus, atbay, cat-g, melesmeles, yes_, pretty_vacant, commandercool, iwasalightningkitten (sidenote: i saw you in the subway on byres road the other day, hi!), craigfoley, medulla, soodoughnim, wishpig, colleen, and i stood next to gggg but didn't talk to him... pretty sure that's it
I met her at Zonino. She's nice :)
where did we stand next to eachother? huh? huh?
You were too busy sliding down poles with me and yes_ at the time, though
is what happens when you leave a tab open for ages and then reply without refreshing. JEEZ.
i seem to recall you being a little preoccupied with poledancing
i stood next to gggg once too
like ibzo, and danielkelly, and sophia and steve, and kenako, and gggg, and lord lucius, and probaly others at zononoes and ATPs and such.
they were nice
i thought we met before but i suppose seeing you at zonino two years ago but nopt talking to you or knowing you were toby isnt exactly meeting
About 30 of the buggers.
Can't get away from them, they're everywhere.
Someone pointed out Fishplums to me at EOTR but I didn't have my glasses on, so couldn't really see.
i heard about that whole thing. would've been interesting had you tried to negotiate a blurry drive home!
I would've come over and said hello otherwise...
i think lameosaur sat near me and i spoke to her friend and he said "she loves her xiu xiu"
a few others
and stood next to but wasn't introduced to fishplums and dash_and_blast, but i think i said hi and bye! to them. it was so embarassing.
maybe next time, eh?
i do love my xiu xiu, that's no lie.
was this at triptych? was it a really tall english guy?
I can't remember what he was like, he was nice and enthusiastic.
And i met bizzy and chuff this year.
i don't know. quite a few. i obviously hadn't met anyone before this year as i only started posting at the beginning of this year.
moousee, gowman, walkingwithwolves, dicko, hannah, fishplums, scarlet_apples, douchebag, lemonbrick, jimithexploder, zapsta, alcxxk..possibly some others from release the bats but my memory is shocking..
he said Zapsta is nice in real life
"so is Zapsta a shit in real life too?"
"Yeah, he is online, but he's nice in real life, to be fair"
'parently Zapsta's nice IRL
i thought you'd be really moody irl, but you weren't at all! your sunny personality only comes across properly irl, obviously :)
i like you
anyone who I met and neglected to add me to their lists.
evidently you'd have probably forgotten we'd even met moments after.
i hate the both of you
I end up getting on well with 2 or 3 people and talk to them for a bit, but mainly I realise I have very little in common with most of the people there and just feel awkward and out of place. If Shona and/or Mehodor go though, I'll probably make the effort.
This could be the only chance I get to meet those two.
Except that time I said I'd meet you at the coach station and then didn't because Spurs were playing. That was my fault. But apart from that - all you.
i think you're avoiding me. i'm not gonna daterape you, or beat you up, or anything like that. honest.
poptimusgrime is going
OR ARE YOU TOO COOL NOW OR SOMETHING?
guess i'm gonna get the bus down from edinburgh on the saturday, back up on sunday morning. gonna book it after the new year.
I think the only bus back up is at 9AM or something so it may be a case of "stay out all night"
Yeah, Helene said there's this hostel that's like £10 a night. !!!!!
I forced Laura Wolf into letting me "crash" on her sofa though, if need be. i.e. In case I go down on Friday, stay Saturday, home Sunday or something. Probably won't have to do that though, I guess.
for a gig!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
it's a long way to london and it's mostly a dayshift thing anyway. Ach.
I'd been thinking about not doing it for a while. I'd rather go to London for a week than spend, like, 20 hours on the bus and about 8 hours fannying about some club or other.
How about next November, in between our birthdays or something? Then you'll be in Wales and stuff.
mibby I'll go to Sweden?
not many people that I actively want to meet. it'll be bamos and all his lot talking about football and what it's like to work in an office and stuff, which is fair enough but not my scene, man.
There's like Helene, Jack, Phil... That's about all I would like to meet, I suppose. Can do that another time though.
or standing outside. I was only going because of walkingwithwolves originally, but I don't think she's going anymore.
"i'd rather meet [you] elsewhere". And I would. We'd have a hard enough time trying to understand one another in a noisy club. We can have an amazing time elsewhere.
it's so small and awkward to watch bands in
Where's the unity?
Is this the start of a breakaway faction or something? Is there going to be a separate night, called Wonion?
I don't buy into this nightshift/dayshift crap.
What do you drink dukebox? Do you sip whiskey on the end of the bar and do this:
where they are all singing
THIS BOOOY IS CRACKIN' UP
As I said above, I'd like to meet you. Plus it's your birthday. And stuff.
Don't pee yourself about there being a faction or anything though, pal
and staying at mine, I believe.
Seriously. It's just a lot of people, getting drunk and dancing to great music.
None of us talk about work. Unless it's funny.
but it's still gonna cost at least £30, 2 x hellish bus journeys and a whole weekend out of doing anything else.
With people you already know.
I dunno, just don't be prejudiced about people you haven't met. Just cause they're older and work in offices doesn't mean they're too far apart from you in terms of interests. You forget these guys go and see Mudhoney and Morrissey and buy albums by Nick Cave and Tom Waits just as much as you do. And there are so many dissers there that you'll find some to strike up conversation with about anything. Usually sex, but most conversations veer that way before too long.
PLUS IT'S MY BIRTHDAY AND I WANT TO MEET YOU
right i'm not going anymore. HAHAHA. I am such a tease. But seriously, i'm not going. Might go to london in summer.
and i couldn't remember what the song was called
I kept asking people what it was, and singing segments
and i burst out laughing when I remembered, cos of this video
needless to say, they think i'm a mental now
we can swap places for the night ;)
i've never been burned so badly.
im oblivious to my surroundings
man, i'm hurt :(
whereas tom came and introduced himself to me at a later date and was a Thoroughly Nice Chap(tm)
stealthy, both at ATP.
which i need to bump now, rlly.
Outside of that; crabbers at dananana...also bill_bill_bill at iLiKETRAiNS, but met both of them at footers too.
mainly because I only operate incognito.
'is that noise_annoys?' i should probably get a life.
I stand upright, five digits on each hand, etc.
But seriously, I'm short, wear glasses, an array of band shirts/hoodies, also slightly rotund, it's fair to say.
yeah, i imagine i'd probably stand out in a similar way.
we even went for ice cream and stuff. all this before he started telling me to fuck off on the internet. the glory days.
Either way, I'm pretty sure it was the best day of both of our lives.
it was a good time for me. you were a good lad. jp100 was with you. he didn't seem to like me.
That's how he ended up living with me.
and i didn't know who you were, sorry. I like you now though, from your internet postings, and you're the first person in this thread to remember meeting me, well done. :)
i just didn't name anyone at all cause i'm crap
because they were all crap
CHEER UP HELENE IT'S CHRISTMAS
that's why it's funny!
that's not a good thing :''''''''''(
Yr like my top DiSer I want to meet. Amongst the top anyway, probably. MelesMeles is still pretty high up there with like, seniority.
As I was saying: I likely won't meet any next year, either, unless Jordannumbers miraculously gets his Chicago placement. Or maybe, actually, if Nestor has his gap year trip next year, I forget. Ee.
When? Was it since I joined DiS and you really did snub me? Maybe it was post-1993 and I was here already and we were both littles and we actually like crossed paths at the zoo or frolicked on the shore of Lake Michigan together or something and we'll meet one day when I'm visiting Scotland or something and you're up there for work and it'll all come back to us and I'll already totally have met a DiSer, even before the invention of DiS.
Stopped over there for a few hours while I changed flights to DISNEY WORLD!
Well you weren't *in* Chicago then.
2009 is gonna be an expensive year
you should visit New York, or the Bay area, or the South, or basically anywhere but the Midwest. But I would totally maybe (cost/time-depending) meet up with you someplace cool if you were going to be there anyway and it was a place I planned to visit at some point.
but I might just get bored of staying here and do one of those jaunts across America. I can visit Alyssa in New York, you in Chicago, some relatives in Boston and my cousin in California.
Better: you can give me an excuse to get off my ass with saving and visit New York or California.
but I've only introduced myself to Iwillexplode and Nestor cause I'm shy and ting.
Theetersecrimp and Johnny_cashew! was great though!
spoke to one on the phone though
no one cares
highlight of my life, thus far, as i'm sure you can imagine. I EVEN MEATED HER IN HER HOUSE. hot.
emm... I was quite self-absorbed and interrupted Nestor having a conversation with gggg last month at p girls in manc. Sorry Nestor, I was a bit of a twat.
I'm quite sure I've forgotten someone but can't think who. i'm sure they've forgotten me too
Except less facepalm and more "Well, that was a lovely trip"
be able to add at least some to my list before the year is out
2009: LukeLeighfield, mass
I've talked to Countzero
been hugged by a sweaty CG
been surrounded by Dsers at Release the Bats and not realised.
but could do more...
you were all lovely.
