Came in search of a better life.
I don't know who you are, pal.
could me that much of a bell
(Secretly excited to be mentioned)
Yeah, I went there.
he ignored it.
To me, the guy can go BURN.
he failed to develop as a character.
wow. Didn't realise I had so many art projects just lying around my flat
I might've bought his trainers but I absolutely WILL NOT shell out for his used bus tickets
crying a little
his art projects are funnier than Hal Incandenza's filmography.
(you mean Himself)
he used to post all these really needy threads that he would pretend were attempts at trolling when really he was just desperate to talk to people.
he did this whole thing about pretending to be the boss in a factory, which was sort of designed to be funny because it was so obviously not true, but ended up being quite depressing. You got the impression he desperately wanted at least someone to believe it. Poor cunt.
haven't heard from him in ages, wonder what he's up to.
i can't be angry with you, mate. whenever you try to wind me up i can't help but picture your cartoon head.
Why do cunts change their usernames? If you've fucked it up so bad the first time round, maybe you shouldn't post again.
over the last six months.
you spend most days on here, surely it's quite easy to differentiate between regular posters by subject matter and posting style?
I can't tell. You're less important than you think.
you pop up, and the first time I notice is you telling me I'm a whiny dick for saying CrispinA shouldn't be banned.
I've had rows on here but never personal ones, just about politics and stuff.
You however are being a bell. Reign it in and be a gent.
your posting style has dramatically changed over the last few months. me (and several others) have joked about it. that's pretty much it. if that makes you uncomfortable i'll knock it on the head, but it's at odds with your new in everyones face DiS persona. there's never been any row of any kind that i can remember.
How am I meant to argue with reasonable?
But I'm fairly sure some popular/funny/likeable users in the past had multiple profiles.
shocking and completely unfounded allegations
it's always the ones you least suspect
but the day-glow bike rants are the definite high point so far.
either marcofella, MrScagden playing away, or the old guy who I can't remember's name saying he was the Official Avante Garde Editor of DiS or whatever
what was MrscagdenSir thing? he seems pretty nice generally
someone (brusma?) worked it out via the posting style or something
if I remember correctly.
I hope that's not true, despite a few slip-ups every now and then, Cronin was one of the better posters around here. All things aside, he was interesting at least.
It spoiled it a bit when he came back and was all like *shrug*.
Marcofella coming back and being all 'what's up guys?!!' was great. Icing on the big-knickers-fiasco cake.
when he kept denying it and was all "do you honestly think that was me?" and everyone was like, ".... yes."
Today is a day of returns. A joyous day.
not a boat for animals.
Like "Arc! I've hit my hand!"
a character will go from lonely to socially content
a happy family man will lose contact with his family and become an outsider
For the same reaso n
That's pretty much an achievement of sorts.
Being relatively new, lots of these are going over my head.
Please Explain: Ho_Fo Marcofella Cronin*
*was he the guy who was angry about people not claiming Lana Del Rey was the best thing in the world?
Marcofella (the downfall): http://drownedinsound.com/community/boards/social/4146423
Brainlove (the downfall part 2)http://drownedinsound.com/community/boards/social/4416017
I can't find part 1. Probably for the best actually.
I wish I had all his phrases as a big poster. I remember something about Menstrual blood too
But he posted recently and a little Cronin goes an awfully long way.
that's the geezer who lives in LA and was banged up and on heroin or something.
left in disgrace after banging AndyVine
and then left in disgrace after banging AndyVine
Serious answer: Accidentally pressed the nuclear button on the admin setting, wiping every post she's ever written and permanently deleting her account.
Pretty harsh but I guess it's a bit Reggie Perrin.
eltham had an arc?
I've pretty much been an idiot from day one. Michael Corleone I am not.
I just wondered if you'd suffered some horrible Scagdenesque fate (and wanted to know all about it, obvs =D )
not ragging on him, the bloke's a cliff curtis fan and you can't disrespect that, but isn't it just:
be solid > change name from ArtVandelay > mack on Gabrielle for a bit > generally continue to be solid
Hasn't been an arc of OBT proportions though.
making a comeback near you soon
It's extra-curricular. I think...it's not an issue that's ever come up before for anyone on here
I mean, I like the guy but it really sounds like you're calling him a poo.
and the challenges they've faced / been beaten by / overcome
This is the most patronising sounding post I've ever made. Sorry Maz.
Thought it was code for something.
dunno what he's done, maybe been a bit snarky from time to time? idk
and so began to post exclusively about Danish footballers. Struggled to deal with forza's attentions.
from idealistic young go getter to paranoid kurtz figure
When they used to flirt so much we all thought they wanted to suck each other off? Happy days
if you know what I mean
Do you mean they sucked each other off?
Royter sucking DanielKelly off?
Is that what you were meaning or something else?
Just for us
' it ' is the spunk.
Because it went out of their systems.
they got the spunk out of their systems?
so what does "system" mean??
and suddenly Royter just didn't have time for me any more ...
Like one of those little birds that lives on, and has a symbiotic relationship with, a hippo
Meths has backpedalled his dayglo bike out of it leaving these two titans to clash heads.
the above list is the people who he followed around because he wanted to suck them off, if you get what I mean ;)
Being super best friends over the past year or so
Didn't you join after me?
At least 1,000 of mine weren't all in a thread about Reef.
where is it?
No innuendo please.
usually a slow demise #meat #grave
I, for instance, took ownership of my deteriorating quality by increasing the frequency that I posted badly
it's too much.
"When you die, would you rather be forgotten forever or hatefully remembered". Guess you plumped for the latter in that case.
he's just pissed all over our curtains
from best poster on DiS to extinction.
From clean cut, sensible with money, decent chap to drug-addled drain on society.
turned into a humming bird
you know who I think has an arc?
Great music board contributor, often took things a little too personally/seriously but he had some good points when he took things lightly. People started getting a bit upset though and started wetting themselves in anger because he was quite often contrary and didn't really hold back. He knew how to dish it out, but unfortunately didn't know how to take it. Things kinda hit their apex on the 'A lack of diversity in music tastes' (http://drownedinsound.com/community/boards/music/4426637) thread, and then infamously shots were fired in the 'DiS's Favourite Albums' thread.
<3 u deep-blue come back the fire's on and we miss u
Favourite quotes: a retrospective
"IMPORTANT: haters, out!"
"Garbage are excellent
And yes, I'm original. Unlike the herd..."
Also, this exchange is great: http://drownedinsound.com/community/boards/music/4426637#r7377706
Obligatory: "Who the fuck are you, asshole? I've never seen you posting something on this board. I, boring? My topics usually have over 50 replies. Just count them, cunt. And disappear in shame."
But in terms of actual contribution he was pretty rubbish. Frequently linked to wikipedia to prove his point and didn't understand why anyone listened to music made after about 1994. There's an "electronic recommendations" thread somewhere in which his contribution was to link to the last.fm tag "electronic".
which seems to explain why he's so overzealous in his love of certain semi-naff electronic music. something to do with music like New Order, Depeche Mode, other stuff with crap lyrics (...Garbage?) having huge appeal to non-native Anglophones with its broad, clumsy attempts at capturing concepts and emotions.
