Have I missed anyone?
Who else have we managed to lure from the 3D world and into DiS?
She's quite pretty.
LiS is Marina Hyde in the Guardian, who Bumbler has also slagged off (and he posted their email correspondence here).
I knew I knew it.
Bumbler was slagging her off, she posted "What are you on about?"
It turned out he was thinking of Julie Burchill :D
He was at war with every female columnist in the country at one point.
did Leo ever actually post or was that someone pretending to be him?
Probably was. I guess he never posted again because every female member of the board immediately PM'd him when he signed up. Fuckin' playa, that lad.
and it turned out to be a DiSer's housemate or something, yeah?
Or the Brian May one. Or the Jonathan King one. And Indie Amy just makes me embarrassed.
about the BRITS/up and coming young artists or something.
The thread wasn't actually about him, but when people discovered who he was hilarity ensued.
It involved a then-DiSer, a none too complementary thread and her Myspace: http://drownedinsound.com/community/boards/social/1797726#r2355530
and I'm sure it turned out that she somehow read the thread or something. Could be wrong though.
in which jesus_son said that one of her 'people' had seen the thread and told her about it.
if ONLY you knew the truth.
(think SWAGGERING MANC and you wouldn't be far off)
Add Liam Gallagher to the list.
alanjmcgee60 or something.
He got slagged off AFTER he started posting on here.
Although he did get ask a load of his friends to come and help him fight his corner, so I suppose there are parallels.
mentioned the site in a guest lecture he did at uni the other day.
only a passing remark when someone asked him a question about something.
If ever a guy had Google Alerts set up on his own name, it's that guy.
Seemed like a complete asshole, but one I quite like, if that makes sense.
posting in that thread where the guy complained they were raising money for a homeless shelter at a gig?
they made a comment on their site/blog/Twitter or something referring to the accusation on here.
There was some beef between him and sean or something.
on a thread about ATR.
Lots of people were excited about their late 2010 tour and he wrote something about what they wanted to play and confirmed that there'd be an album out in 2011.
you boys took one hell of a beating
merely slagged the site off on his own blog.

I read that through in his accent too.
Keep thinking of bands who became more famous after being on here (LC!, JoFo, Danana, Esben)
John Earls off Planet Sound, I suppose. And Tim Jonze once researched a Guardian Guide piece about message board trolls by pretending to be one praising Phil Collins.
When you act like an annoying tit on the internet, people on the internet get annoyed! MORE ON PAGES 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 & 9
Followed by Brian May then Amy the Indie.
The Editors one wasn't all that fun.
though i doubt he actually posted.
MARCOFELLA, THAT'S WHO!
Does that count?
I was always a big fan of the video.
it's here: http://drownedinsound.com/community/boards/social/3107739
You probably don't even know what cunt means. It does not mean a vagina, thats only in its slang form.
It's just made me angry rather than amused.
He and I ended up emailing each other for ages after I made a flippant comment on the music board about his new video. I'm sure he posted a reply.
I was left with the intense impression of someone who REALLY MEANS IT.
Probably the closest this country has come to producing Steve Albini.
I think I just said it was 'a bit meh' or something.
He totally called me on it - said I couldn't dismiss his life's work based on one half-listend snippet of a crappy youtube stream
Anyway, he was right. It's a great record and it needed proper digesting, I have tried hard not to form snap judgements based on internet clips ever since :)
I can't remember.
All these people back on DiS. For one night only?
What better than this?
How to lure him?
wasnt so much lured as here to jag
....after we outed him as *something*
