'Cos that's the impression I'm getting.
I think I'm about 70% confirmed to be there.
you HAVE to be there. Yes, I'm going. 100%.
tickets are cheap right? like Â£40 or something...
if the YAY kids dont buy up all the tickets 2 mintutes before they go on sale- anyway Look At ME! I went in 2000 blah de blah
down south willing to get me two tickets seeing as they're on sale down there now and not up here in 'the regions'?
you're in welshville.
was more in relation to my other post down there. I wish people would stop panic-buying up all the tickets.
It's like the petrol crisis all over again.
all the people going to Oxford to get there tickets have me slightly worried. Everyone should wait untill after March the 5th so that mine is all nice and secured.
but I think that although the WHOLE of DiS are going, the rest of the world in general don't care very much. I hope.
LET'S DO BRUNCH.
Last year, Brainlove wanted to organise a DiS pic-nic. We should maybe attempt one this year.
I will be there. When do tickets go onsale to people who aren't bumpkins?
I should be able to get one then.
I think me and 'nicey' have come to some sort of deal to stop me whining like a stuck pig. I hope its improved since 2000(cue canned snoring from everyone)
can I be in on the deal? does it involve clandestine meetings in dark alleys? If not can it be altered so it does?
I'm going to say this over and over until it happens. It's a bit annoying if you can't eat wheat - I just had to take lots of snacks and eat pineapple all weekend.
There'll be more food this year. Fingers crossed for a hog-roast.
you speak of?
weekend in July.
and its certainly got better in pretty mcuh every way.
be there, all being well
maybe. someone pretend that they want me to come and make me feel loved.
ps- last year was ace.
so long as you speak to me, not just spy on me.
anyone got tent space for me?
tequila and cheap continental lager.
thanks h_f, that's a kind offer.
i may invest in my own tent from argos before the time if i'm feeling flush.
simultaneously hang and suffocate yourself because you don't have a tent?
don't do it wishpig!
we should get tickets and all stay together, and sew WUT and JAG on our tent...
i camped with -Raz- tho, so that was exciting. he didnt like me.
but shoulda camped wit hmore DiSers.
I was just camped on the other side of the field to everything else I think.
Was it only 4 people? I met; you, PeeVee, Rock-AND-RollMascara, QuiteCrown, Johnny Brizz-lizzle, Fellalady, NiceyNiceSquizzySuirell, and utm_perved on me but didn't say hell.
Oh, and of course, I met Thommo -who was totally ace.
I might make a 'SHAZAM!' tshirt for Truck actually.
what i mean is that i didnt meet monpot or shpig. and havent subsequently. and they are possibly the DiS users that make me LoL on teh most frequent basis. so that was a shame.
How kind of you :-)
where is it?
and is it suitable for children/families?
I trucked. I met some people of DiS, but not a LOT of people of DiS, just some.
I would like to meet more, so I may go this year.
It's some of my local friends who are doing this bloody panic buying. I said DON'T DO IT IT'S WRONG, but would they listen? No.
Just like the sitcom, awful people.
Oh, I also met colly_kunoichi at Truck, but I didn't say much to her, as she was getting in the way of my burger-eating.
I also met a talking tent.
though burger eating is wrong obvs.
you bet your bottom I'm going
Seeing as how it's the best festival and all.
tickets and flog them on ebay
and smash you!
FELL OUT over it, for about an hour. Fucking tards, if the tickets sell out I don't get one, I will blame them personally. Why is it only me that has 15 local friends who want to attend, and who are terrified of all DiSsers they ever saw?
for about five seconds. you were like "hi. i used to post on DiS. rachel with three 'r's"
which i found silly, cos your name is clearly "Rachel with a rolled r"
try pronouncing it with a rolled R! it is for the welsh only that pronunciation, bet only monpot could make a decent go of it!
oh i've got truck excitement now. why is it still february?
YES i AM. True story.
I will be sharing someone's tent. At the moment, this is Rocknrollmassacre. I don't think he quite knows what he's let himself in for...
I've got room in my tent, but it's all for me. I'm a no-tent-sharing bastard.
stay in a tent on my own but I don't know how to put them up. Anyone want to volunteer to put mine up, in return for some free cider and/or food?
But i don't know how to put them up either. I will struggle manfully with you though
I'll give you a hand, don't worry.
can only stay if he brings shortbread
by official decree
I'll help you put up your tent, I have a Girl Guide Advanced Camping Badge. FACT.
maybe, possibly, depends. growl.
And it's the day after my 21st yay yay yay yay yay yay!
Have to get some tickets first, though...
we are going too!
"Oh, and of course, I met Thommo -who was totally ace.
monpot | 02 Feb '06, 19:52"
with thommo. he is a very brilliant person
from bad hangover
with thommo. he tried to buy me salad, but i said no i'll buy it because that's mean.
that's all I have to add to this thread really.
unless any kind person wants to buy one for me from oxford?
BUT when do tickets go on sale to us non-Oxford schmos??
10 days before my birthday
5 days before monpot's
14 before someone else's
and stubrcye too at some point
days before mine!
Rrrachel why dont you put a P in front of your name then you can get me to say your name, I can guarentee that it will have everyone in stitches...ask rapscallion
wut sort of bands? and would my family like it?, bearing in mind my sone callum is 10 times the dancer i am
family friendly. under 14s in free with paying adult (i think).
indie bands. from oxford and further afield. surprisingly big headliners.
i will look forward to showing hollywood_freak a thing or two about camping, and tent erections.
(sorry Ill calm down)
i'm going. hannah82 is my camping buddy but i'm not sure if either of us have a tent.
I have a NON DiS camping buddy! Shocker.
you're so twee :D
That is stunning!
how many people i can get to buddy me in my two person tent.....
always be able to find your tent!
whos going to let me hang around with them for truck?!!?
you can hang around with us. I will allow you.
with me too.
:) yes you can
then I'll come
It'll be rock and roll. Well, i'll bring rolls.
the jam and margarine for the rolls then?
I'm not hangin' with your crew, maaaaan.
sugar-free marmalade to Truck last year. And oatcakes. And Pimms. Mmmm.
oh my god.
i am soo bringing Pimms. lots and lots of it :):):)
this is the highlight of the year
just made myself seem more fey than my photo haven't i?
or a garden croquet party?
quite fun to bring a croquet set....
That would be fun!
I brought Pimms, lemonade, and a small tupperware of lemon, cucumber, and mint. It was BRILLIANT.
I have prractised Prrrachel in the mirror and it works just as well as Prrole
at least for her...
you need to film it. i've still not put up the prole video. but i will...
You videoed me going 'prrrole' ?
please please dear god not with the lipstick on?
i have a video of darcy with lipstick, but only photos of you
My thread got more than a hundred replies.
Anyone who wants can stand near me at Truck, they can do so for as long as they can tolerate me.
But 'diolch' none the less.
I think i would have found it easier to have learnt languages in a pub, specially welsh, all pubs could do it have one welsh sentence per night. That way once could come back and claim you have been to evening classes.
Two pints please barman (except you have to say it in welsh) ....oh thats just like a pub in wales isn't it
or 'chwerw' if you're asking for bitter.
that doesnt help me much can you help with some phrenetics please
saying prole or prachel
following ...translation and pronunciation please
mae bola tos tavi
"sut wyt ti?" means 'how are you?'-phonetically; 'sit ooeee teee?' is the best I can offer sorry
"Mae bola tost 'da fi" -'I have a stomach ache"
phonetically; 'my bola tost da vee'
dai paint oar goorrroooooo
you are a gent
come to Truck. I'm good at putting up tents, I think I've got one but I wanna get a new one with a living room and stuff this year.
me and PW turned up and emptied the tent bag only to find the tent poles were still in Cardiff. Her dad had to drive all the way up there with them.
he was well happy.
that sounds like something I would do!
does anyone know how much it is?
I don't know but it's not at baskerville hall this time.
in 2004 it cost Â£35 for both days. last year it was Â£60 + about Â£20 for camping etc.
this year they're hoping to get 5,000 people. I reckon it'll be anything up to Â£80 though they may keep it at Â£60.
apparently will oldham's fee last year was massive.
Green Man too!
let's all go to green man!!
Lets do it
Green Man and Truck!
a suitable new venue and smooth out the problems they had last year it should be Zonino!
I just wanted to cry the whole weekend last year at all the joy I was missing.
the line-up was SO good last year
BRILLIANT. didn't you accidental? I bet anyone who missed it must HATE themselves so much they don't want to LIVE.
that's why i hate myself. :*(
miss it this year!
I thought up there ^^^^ where you said 'I wAnt to green man' you said 'I wEnt to green man'.
rumour is Silver Jews are headlining.
I will kill to go to this. When is it?
august. weekend before aug bank holiday I think.
otherwise I'm out - as I'm best man on August 19th!
augsut 18th - 20th, campsite open 17th.
venue still unconfirmed.
cant be too difficult to do a weekend in the british countryside can it?
Some people are saying British Sea Power. Part of me is thinking Brakes.
Brakes have played last 2 years running. 2 of their members are Electric Soft Parade, who have an EP out on Truck Records and have also played the festival a few times.
Brakes also have a special song just for the Truck-Fest.
I'd be happy with Brakes.
and i'll say it again.
if bearsuit play, i'm going to cream myself.
will come if i can get a ticket.
they're not that rare are they...
going then. provided it doesnt clash with anything important
i just looked at the dates and it may do.
TROT headlined the first year i went.
i sawe bsp play a few 2003. dont think brakes have played twice.
anyway, i've heard pretty reliable rumours of who's headlining. and theyre bigger than bsp. by far.
is that possible?!
And Brakes have played three times, the last three i believe
The Ordinary Boys?
Fingers crossed, Preston is LUSH!
sexiest mod since paul weller. msn says so.
I raise you:
Last year in the Trailer Park tent, and year before in the tiny-tiny tent. Eamon was stood behind me in the queue for tea, talking to an attractive girl who came from somewhere on mainland Europe.
Last year, i really wanted Eamon's coat. It was an ace-o leather jacket, it was fitted and a bit modd-ish, and it had a patch on the shoulder. He looked cool.
either = YAYAYAYAY
trucktrucktruck! woooooo *flails*
Then we might get to see Eeamon banging his drum and just generally being The Official Fleet Reserve again.
But they're still liek, friends and stuff. So if Brakes and BSP were there then Eamon might get back to banging his drum.
knees is really into them and that would provide a big incentive for me to help her overcome her DIS reticense
in edinburgh, without a computer :( i miss the internet!
-my friend's going off to South America to look after bears or something. She'll be Two and A Half hours away from an internect connection.
Sounds like Hell to me.
and a half HOURS. !
these ones don't have any sound either :'( i really need a laptop.
what happens if myspace is down when she gets there?
now that i use it. true fact
Nothing goes down on Rapscalion, NOTHING.
