I'll start with MartinClunes' one-man demolition of DiSers' music:
That somebody would be so committed to being a dick is the sort of thing that makes me want to never leave the house again.
who either doesn't know any better or doesn't have anything better to do with their time than be embarrassingly unfunny on the internet while attacking faceless people.
In which case, he's done his own band.
I didn't take it as mean-spirited. If he'd singled out one or two bands for criticism then maybe. But he's gone after pretty-much everything submitted. It's impressive.
They're so obviously tongue in cheek
and even if they were, they're still not funny or clever. Sorry maosm, or whoever else it may be. I just don't get it at all, and it goes further than that I find it irksome.
(it is normally quite a funny account, just not this thread.)
you means classically shite then.
The Martin Clunes thing isn't funny, it's weak and really mean spirited, with a nice borderline ebola reference in there too.
I didn't really like it. And I'm awful.
I thought it was just me.
I missed the borderline ebola reference (it's quite a long thread).
Would welcome an alternative suggestion, PO!
Occasionally ruining The Quietus.
Didn't get through all of it but yeah, I liked it.
suggest some better threads, then.
Why are venues so horrible
Never play the good ship
I can only dream that one day, I might go on to have a baby Balonz < 3
laughed out loud at "Judge Balonz Gladstone"
and the fact he has been consistently vile makes it fine... I think?
that it was anything more than an extended and slightly mean joke? I underestimate DiS sometimes, I really do!
and this is not, to many people. not being po-faced (or maybe I ma. am I?). but really, i'm not trying to be difficult. I tried to laugh along with it and then I thought, why am I trying to make myself laugh at this, it's just not funny.
Personally I find "combined weight" jokes quite funny. A bit like how you'd watch the first episode of The Fast Show and be a bit "..." and then by the end of the series it'd be hilarious because of the combined weight of a repeated joke.
Each to their own though - definitely seems to have divided opinion!
The Fast Show comment is apt
It's a character I've noticed around but I hadn't realised it was meant to be a thing. hence I guess why I've not been 'getting it'.
didn't realise Traynor was in that thread.
I see him all the time on twitter getting into scraps with journalists/anyone who doesn't share his `blinkered` view of the world these days. Great to see.
He was just a bit too much in the end.
and he crops up all the time.
Geezer's a lunatic.
Creaky drove him down to London. When I asked how the drive was, Creaky just said 'long'.
Got stranded in west London and Daniel Kelly offered to lend him 50p for the bus?
I've tried to find him but I just found a thread from Feb 2008 started by MITS where everyone was discussing how amazing ZONINO 2 was (it was amazing, I was there).
suddenly seems less funny
