i fancy drinking with all you cunts. shall we make it happen?
19th march, yeah?
i'm in glasgow that weekend
i'm going to a wedding
or during the weekend?
but my friday has already been taken up :(
it will require negotiation
glasgow is perhaps possible
definitely the NINETEENTH OF MARCH, put it in your diaries folks!
Close enough for me to demand FREE BIRTHDAY DRINKS, I reckon :D
me and ghostpony jenny are putting on a night at the wee red bar in edinburgh on the 19th, so you should all come and get drunk and dance to single ladies and fleetwood mac yeah? YEAH!
better make them early though, my last train home is at half eleven :'( I can only stay out late in Glasgow (my parents have a flat I can use)
BOO HOO TOMATRON
:D you're in.
i'm not very good at remembering these sorts of things :(
YOU CAN STAY AT MY HOUSE
can I bring a girl and then perhaps bagsy a double bed? I promise not to DO IT on your sheets :D
although this means you should probably organise a PRE-NINO in order to vet people before you start bandying about such invitations :D
some vague space.
no doing it anywhere though, GROSSSS
and this is true. maybe we should make the WEST trip the week before! :D
It would be BEAUTIFUL and MEANINGFUL
but yeah, no doing it, GROSSSS!
trip to West brewery in Glasgay, it's definitely going to happen
wasn't it originally supposed to be in january? ;)
Not that I'm fussed, cos I can actually come to it now :D
Tomatron, I am going to cause some damage to you.
We'll see who's the bitch, bitch.
I'm going to the gym NOW! Once I've worked out what my 'guns' are and where they are supposed to be, I'm totally going to work on them :D
Work on those.
I'm a "swift kick to the shins and run away" kinda fighter anyway :D
seeing as the last one was glasgow
we're talking about a meat, not low life-expectancy ;)
Translation for non-Scots speakers: Would you mind refraining from that particular action.
So what is Zonino anyway? Not that I couldnt look it up or owt.
can i appropriate this please? I like it!
Zonino = woohoo in predictive text, and also a fun dance party that sometimes happens in London. We need one further north for sure.
But with any luck i will be at SxSW on the 19th.
Not sure i could deal with meeting so many Dissers in 1 night :)
I GOT FRIENDS ON DA INTERNET! I GOT FRIENDS ON DA INTERNET! I GOT FRIENDS ON DA INTERNET! I GOT FRIENDS ON DA INTERNET! I GOT FRIENDS ON DA INTERNET! I GOT FRIENDS ON DA INTERNET! I GOT FRIENDS ON DA INTERNET! I GOT FRIENDS ON DA INTERNET! I GOT FRIENDS ON DA INTERNET! I GOT FRIENDS ON DA INTERNET! I GOT FRIENDS ON DA INTERNET! I GOT FRIENDS ON DA INTERNET! I GOT FRIENDS ON DA INTERNET! I GOT FRIENDS ON DA INTERNET!
despite having put in the holiday request LAST YEAR. Apart from anything else, flight prices are going to be prohibitively expensive now, and i've held off and held off booking whilst work fanny about with my life. I'm pretty much resigned to not being able to go :(
We can't really justify me going but i am trying to negotiate. I'll be gutted if i can't go, fucking love it!
and we can have a proper DiS AustinMEAT.
Come out in Glasgow on the 19th! Bring Jackson! I will bring him a choice of two birds :)
How fucking good would that be?!
A choice of 2 birds eh, the wee man would love that.
I CAN'T BELIEVE I'M PIMPING OUT MY BABIES. AGAIN.
and call it North By Northwest?
Which means Friday i'll be alcohol free and saturday i'll be a massive dehydrated lightweight.
but I broke my ribs and couldn't do it. I was really quite relieved. You're completely radio.
And xylo, that sounds like a stupidly amazing plan.
like i did the night before I had to run up ben nevis. I still managed to do it (after a snooze and a vom on the side of the mountain halfway up). Really stupid, arrogant and irresponsible behaviour, but really REALLY funny in hindsight. One day I'll track down the American lady who helped me and buy her a (soft) drink .
you should stay for the party, it is a major reason why that race has gone from 600 entries to 2500...
*crazy event duly noted for next year*
playing Mad Hatters in Glasgow on 4th. Please come say hi, we'll be looking for friends.
What's the place like anyway? What we letting ourselves in for?
AND NOW I KNOW WHY
I say Mad Hatters but that's Inverness. I meant Captain's Rest in Glasgow.
Captain's Rest is cool. Playing in some terrifying bar in Milngavie would probably give you better tour stories though :D
would provide better tour stories only if we made it home?
Glad to hear Capatin's Rest gets a decent reference though, thanks.
although it was better when it was still full of old men who would glare at you as you made your way through the bar down to the venue which was COVERED IN MIRRORS. no mirrors now though :(
Can't remember the name of the place now, but there was a place in Berlin that was full of mirrors too and all the more fun for it. Drunken mirror maze ftw
May look in. Would I like your band? Your profile suggests I might!
we like phoneboxes! We're there on 6th
I hope you'd like the band, is that an invitation to shamelessly JAG? Why thankyou...
anyway, I liked the sound of that - I'll make a point of coming if I am allowed out...
Madness, madness i tells ye.
I'm in London that weekend, otherwise i'd be there :)
Nae worries...thought that counts eh :)
On another front, how has my post moved? I didn't reply in the wrong place (honest!)...I posted at 11:54, yet somehow I'm replying to Reckoning's post of 12:02, hmmm??
so I look like a tool again. Prolly just this shitty work pooter.
Especially since i'm the one who "rebuilt the thread" *beams like a simpleton*
All my favourite posters on here appear to be scottish, oddly. So it's time to get drunk.
because i think i should point out that i'm not scottish, to avoid another theo-esque situation.
It wasn't you, but I am developing a gradual fondness for sure. Give it time hun, give it time.
you told me we hadn't but im not so sure anymore
and that's only because he wanted a kickback.
Edinburgh on the 19th, and anybody who wants to join me, xylopwn and sheeldz on the 20th in Glasgow (most likely at sleazy's) gets a bonus poking from xylo.
I've got nothing planned for the 19th March, and therefore no excuses for not meating you bunch of semipaedos. Apart from it being the day after the Why? gig.
See you at WEST then, mebbes.
in edinburgh and i'll come
Also, CLARIFICATION QUESTION PLEASE, DiSSERS OF SCOTLAND:
Is this the 19th or 20th and is it Glasgow or the 'burgh? Edinburgh would be a bit of a ballache, but doable on the saturday. (or the friday if we fly to edinurgh instead of Glasgow. Hmmm.)
edinburgh. specifically, the wee red bar at the art college between 11pm and late.
SO there will be funtimes there!
"British Sea Power, Friendly Fires, Johnny Foreigner, Hot Club de Paris, Jeffrey Lewis, Joe Goddard, Fenech Soler, bleech, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Wave Pictures, Ambulances, French Wives, Midnight Lion, Make Sparks, Little Yellow Ukuleles, Grecoroman Soundsystem and Kitty And The Lion..." - £10
come to my night at the GRV in two weeks and a bit time
25th of february at GRV in edinburgh
im gonna be probably playing freddie mercury
except not but imagine if I did? LOL!
but it's the day my sister comes out of hospital, so i'll be about 400 miles away :'(
I DIDNT CHOOSE THE NAME!
seriously its only £2 why don't you all just man up and come. We're gonna give out free ice cream sandwiches for like the first 30 people or something. Get the fuck down.
all the flyers we're giving out are handmade - we just got one huge big fuck off potato and carved ICE CREAM SPIRITUAL into it and done them in loads of different colours. Seriously not DIY as fuck or what?
i will probably come
COME ON edinburghHHHHHH WHERE ARE YOU
I am a genius. I reckon 19th edinburgh, and then on the 20th, I'm taking xylo to sleazys to get fucked up on buckitinis. Reckoning, you'll just have to drag your broken carcass westwards.
now I only go back to take pictures of the people's palace and climb up the necropolis. ROLE REVERSAL
and listen to ex-Xfm djs playing the fratellis on a loop.
I think I have my head in joey santiagos crotch :-D
excellent work! It's dangerous though. Once we went there for one drink then it was like, hmm, i can buy five of these for £10..
....4 hours later :(((((((((
Fucking love it!
Sleazys rules :) (the stairs are VERY dangerous though. They come up and hit you and take you by surprise. I think they might be uneven).
apart from a 50p mix
everyone round to mine and p_v's to listen to me play Andrew WK records then?
(not really, everyone to p_v and ghostpony's night at the Wee Red on February 19th to listen to me play Andrew Wk records)
it makes me say pee vee HERMAN in my head
sometimes out loud
What's the verdict?
we should all go out on Friday 19th February in Glasgow
Friday 19th March in Edinburgh
AND THEN ANY TIME THERE IS A FRIDAY THE 19TH WE WILL ALL REMEMBER OUR INTERNET FRIENDZ
it's a saturday! yeah!!! plus i could get there for like £2.
doesn't look promising. soz.
We'll come to yours if you come to ours.
i might come
everyone who can/wants to come, get yourself over to edinburgh on friday 19th march for drinks and dancing at me and p_v's night. i'm sure we can put the un-edinburger's up somewhere.
are we adding a glasgow leg to this?
gotta keep myself busy then i suppose too. awesome
Have no idea what to make of it/any of you's/me tho.
But I don't think people would like to meet up with me.
I would like to meet John D who runs pin-up's?? seems like a sound guy
(totally not coming to this)
I am not John D!! I have never met him as I live in Edinburgh and he lives in Glasgow. He is the only person that I know from lurking about Jockrock & Dis to put a name to a person to have a drink with. I am intrested in meeting up with the folks from Edinburgh if that's still going ahead??
Internet Forever! Plus another really good and awesome band which i don't know the name of yet! Sneaky Petes! Fun Times All Round!
you should be there
come along, you snotbag ;)
i need to get a ticket though.
My girlfriend's band are being filmed by some weird website tonight in Glasgow and apparently I'm going so that I can stand around going "i wish they'd learn some new songs LOL". But then we're going for dinner at RUMOURS <3 <3
lol the first comment on this review is amazing :D
but we have yet to decide where to go. Probably somewhere west (crabshakk) no doubt.
we can silently pass each other notes that say 'LOL' or '^this' during the meal :D
with 'BOO HOO FAGGOT' written on the inside
Could eat there everyday no bother at all.
It looks amazing.
But no, I'm going to GRV to watch young power-pop bands THRASH. itzgonnabegr8.
ICE CREAM SPIRITUAL
What're the finalised details? I have far too much to be doing to be perusing the contents of this thread for a resolution to the West Brewery vs, eh...Edinburgh's choice debate.
are there any scotch>english translators coming?
I'm off to the cinema and busy for the next couple of days, so please text me the finalised details of this ASAP.
And if not you, then James, Mark or Catriona. Thank you. Bye bye.
This is in MARCH. Calm down mister!
And chop chop with the text.
Um...if it's Edinburger i may not make it, though. Glasgow and i'm all over it.
and I demand to have your company.
Make it happen.
And yes, I can translate. I have lived in Scotland and england an equal number of years throughout my life :-)
It was nice.
Sauchiehall Street on Saturday night was bloody carnage, I dread to think what foreigners coming over and seeing that think...
they'll probably be mightily impressed by how civilised it all is.
Glad you enjoyed it. Do come again.
Round Ashton Lane seems to have become like a mini, slightly smarter-dressed version of Sauchiehall Street at the weekend in recent times. It makes me sad, like this -> :'(
i didn't think it had changed much though i didn't venture there on the busy nights, maybe it's only full of dickheads on these nights.
Ashton lane still has a couple of good pubs, brel, the chip but stefan 'the bawsac' king has brought a new 'element' to the west end.
Still lots of other good pubs in and around the west end where i frequent :)
Not all of sauchiehall street is bad. I mean, the mighty SLEAZY's. C'MON!
I do agree that the west end is becoming worryingly crap at the weekend though. (Last few times I've been home I've stuck to the likes of Sleazy's, Stereo, or the brunswick.) In fact, is that not just true of all city centres and their seemingly 'trendy' areas? I had to get out of the northern quarter on Saturday night because it seemed to be full of hen parties (or girls dressed as it they should be at a hen).
but poor foreigners once they spill out onto sauchiehall st :)
We have covered this before Oeuf but you and i must have passed like ships in the night many times :)
is more of a nightmare HENSMASH than Sauchiehall.
or can we entice you to sleazy's on the 20th?
It will be funny if we take one look at each other and KNOW we've met/dropped kebab all over other before :)
Also, puppy update PLEASE!
I like the CCA bar as well, just a shame you have to go past Campus / Sports bar to get to it, and then if you want to go on to Sleazy's you're pushing through a whole world of hurt / vomit / orange skin tones... :D
Agreed that all 'trendy' areas come up against this.. all the nicer stuff just gets pushed further afield. 'Gentrification' and whatnot?
JOIN! and COME ALONG!
we also have an event page:
at 19:53 yesterday
Billy Idol is the greatest punk rocker of all.
Can I still stay at someone's house? My girlfriend cannot come so it will just be me and I am only little. I could probably fit in a bin or something.
it'll be sleepover funtimes, and there's even a bin to make you feel at home
also medulla you should come too, i don't like clubs and i don't know any of these fools, you can stand in the corner with me and look uncomfortable, HOW ABOUT IT? YAYYYYYYyyyyy
Sat 20th March - Pub crawl from WEST to Sleazy's?
this is important as it precludes his non attendance in edinburgh. the wza looks like he wants it to happen so it shall be so. plus it will allow me to avoid meeting my ex for dinner.
Sorry about Edinburgh, but i really hate clubs. I'd just stand miserably in the corner.
i met you once, it'll be FUN.
I really do dislike clubs though, i'm afraid. Not necessarily yours, but any...I feel awkward and the loud music that prevents me speaking at any decent level harasses me.
ok you're forgiven. just like... advertise it to your edinburger friends ;)
n no one wants to go the the wee red bar because it's "too cliquey!" :(
What you say to DAT! (a rly wanna know, coz i'd really like to go sometime (Y))
but THIS WON'T BE, i promise! It'll be excellent and non cliquey and we promise not to ever play belle and sebastien.
or even less so.
remember to invite all your friends, family, flatmates... everyone. no pets.
Edinbugger: 19th - Maps @ Wee Red Bar
Glasgovia: 20th - Pub crawl from WEST to Sleazys?
Will people actually talk to each other? Is it named after that amazing Yeah Yeah Yeahs song?
alcohol will be involved, so i'm sure it'll be fine and not awkward at all.
i'm not 100% sure... i was listening to that song at the time, but it was at the time where we were a bit delirious from suggesting so many names.
Gary Bussey's Sex Party
Flubber feat. Robin Williams
people staying at my flat update: tomatron + mrs tomatron, sheeldz, ??
does anyone else need a floor/bed/sofa/hug? lemme know folkaroos
I missed this. After much pondering, etc, I was very up for coming to this, but sadly succumbed to a bed ridden snottery mess who had 32p to his name :(
Everyone makes lots of new friends and talk about the good times? FUCK.
