15 years - ask me anything.
I quite like the idea of that 2minutes of being frozen to reboot your immune system thing that athletes do.
Did you ever see this Martin Rossiter video? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AuFjmEB61qM
Thank you sean - textbook reply.
Get him out pls.
MY (and now Sean's) PROUDEST MOMENT OF THE LAST 15 YEARS!!!
Particularity loved your most recent writings about Lana Del Ray.
The sign foretold!
Lucien is coming back!!!
not really a cool thing to say...
the weather's meant to stay nice this weekend so maybe get some fresh air, yeah?
STAY CLASSY SAN DIEGO!
God bless you Silks, but what the fuck?
single your bought
album you bought
gig you went to
music based crush
Then.. how many lampshades are currently in your home right now?
single your bought: MC Hammer 'U Can't Touch This'
album you bought: Travis - Good Feeling
gig you went to: Reef on Fistral Beach for Surfer's Against Sewage (although the far cooler answer is that my mum went to see Bowie a few weeks before I was born)
favourite band: Deftones
music based crush: Gameboy earphones.
Snark aside, I'm listening to dEUS' The Ideal Crash now. On a scale of 1-10, how good is that album?
(no-one subbed it)
It's an 11.
I'd say it's at least 31/10.
Extended snark detail here: http://drownedinsound.com/community/boards/social/4467939#r8725263
you have to cook two courses.. a main plus either a starter or dessert...
which dishes do you cook..?
Main - salmon steaks in my GF with sweet potato chips and feta-stuff peppers.
Dessert - Beetroot chocolate cake. Bosh! http://www.jamieoliver.com/recipes/chocolate-recipes/epic-chocolate-and-beetroot-cake/
not a bad answer..
*leaves the boards*
Pretending to be ok. Another day, another onslaught of abuse.
whilst you're here.. seen as though 'Matt' has fucked off into the sunset.. can I have his account please..?
this isn't possible.
especially as that Matt is the guy who built the site.
Preferably one of us that you haven't met / can't remember seeing a picture of.
They seem to have ripped off Medium.
Where do you see drownedinsound.com in 15 years from now?
How does it feel knowing you've brought so many people from so many different walks of life together here on drownedinsound.com/community/boards/social?
which is kind of terrifying.
did sean go to the wedding..?
but a lot of the DiS forum circa 2005 were there and I mentioned it in my speech.
I hear it was a fantastic day.
Get him lads!
1) Probably when the first single I released by a band called The Koreans got played by Lamacq. I'd grown up listening to the Evening Session and Lamacq introduced it, and said he reads the website. That was kinda bonkers.
2) Hopefully still going in some form. Maybe we'll get some new forums by then that actually work?
3) I can be terrifying, but you know what, there are some amazing people on here. Whenever I meet some of you I fear for a second it's going to be weird but so many DiSsers I've met have been amazing humans. I wish I saw you all more often.
all those server costs!
It's only 50mins to Marylebone but it can feel a world away when you over hear conversations in the pub. Nice pubs tho.
I've had so many real jobs alongside doing DiS over the years, but much-like mid-level indie bands I don't tend to talk about it.
I'd probably be running a newsagent. I love newsagents.
Are you aware that a good deal of us are pretty grateful to you for providing us with a forum to waste time and our employers' money while keeping ourselves entertained?
If not, I'd like to assert that it's true - however it might seem sometimes.
Like me. A fucking hero.
(i already know the correct answer btw)
I worked there once. Boring office job doing graphic design with my very limited graphic design skills.
But I've always been surprised that Marissa Nadler hasn't become at least as big as Sharon Van Etten.
You'll be jiggling in your seat.
Tho if you really hate pop music, then go for the new HEALTH record - although they do sound like a dissonant Pet Shop Boys on a few tracks.
taylor swift or carley rae jepsen
Taylor would 'I just wanted to destroy something beautiful' from Fight Club her face into a plump, then step aside and let her bouncer get covered in just enough blood to take the fall. Then she'd get her dad to pay for Jeppo's body to be disposed of.
Do you still like music? If no, when did you stop?
But I'm much less forgiving.
I seem to be the only person who liked the most recent Hunger Games, so don't take my movie recommendations.
Then I could shout I AM THE WALRUS and someone would post it on the internet and my dental surgery would be burnt down.
Thanks in advance x
1. Salt & Vinegar.
2. Ready Salted.
4. Prawn Cocktail.
6-12: Any involving ketchup.
And we let this guy help shape music tastes?
adding it to the database. THANKS SEAN x
lots of lumps.
it didn't have a name.
you felt the shame the day after.
i work with a lad who worked with you very briefly once and he says you were nice. When you have a full english breakfast do you have ketchup or hp? also can you take a picture of yourself saying 'poisson' with your lips like a fish, it makes me laugh
tezzers, mozzers or sainos?
Presumed as much. Didn't want to harangue you about it.
Sufty was good. It felt a bit much at times, but loved the ending.

zxcvbnm or me?
what ever happened to scan? how many times a day do you get asked by the media about notes-gate? do you still remain in close contact with rupert murdoch?
I know it sounds trite but bloody hell I love Ed Harcourt so next time you meet up give him a wee kiss from me and make sure he plays Manchester again.
Or the same amount of ninnies overreacting to obvious jokes on here?
Sorry for everything.
