Re: Belle and Sebastian

I was on Sinister, but I only posted twice or so. But I had time to get to know Astrid and receive two mix tapes, one of them from Dimitra. I kept in touch with Astrid, writing letters actually, and she made me join That Other Forum a couple of years after - and now I'm here. THE END - this was the...

Re: Belle and Sebastian

that gave it a flavour which was different to a forum: people posted less often, but generally posted much longer, more thought-out posts (or perhaps that's just how i remember it!) That's how I remember it, too. ... but all the traffic was conducted by e-mail(and there used to be such a lot! i rem...

Perhaps we should start a 'where you on sinister?' thread. I was! I joined in June 2001, and it seemed like everyone had been there for ages before me at the time.

Re: The Budgies

Isn't there a Nixon thread somewhere? Shall we rename this the Budgies / Nixon thread? It seems appropriate :) discography question: i have the 'only ugly people smoke' cd (blackbean); 'november 1985' cd (strings of nashville); 'crazy sexy cool' cd-r (popkonst) & the 'snow day' cd-r (popkonst). did ...

Re: Belle and Sebastian

That live in Belfast CD is pretty much a shortened version of the CD of them I had playing at the QMU around the same time. I think it may have been called The Boys are Back in Town and I bought it in Avalanche. It seems to be lost now though. I somehow happened to have been at both those shows! An...

Re: Greece / Ελλάδα

Thank you, Dimitra! I'll bring some notes down there and be my family's local guide to restaurants and cafes. Heh, this made me find that mix tape you made me back in 2002 or whenever it was, if you can remember that - it's still good! It was just about the first mix I received from anyone ever, I ...

Re: They should have released less...

Yes, Belle and Sebastian. Absolutely. They should have stopped after 'Dear Catastrophe Waitress' at the latest. Although 'Arab Strap' might have been good too.

Is there anything else I need to see when I'm in Athens? Ooooh. I kind of wish I still lived there, then I could have shown you around... you did promise to show me around Oslo once upon a time, remember? Hmmm. Well, besides wandering around Plaka, Monstiraki and Thissio, and taking lots of photos ...

Re: The Budgies

Calm down Christos dear. I do still like Nixon (just perhaps not exactly as much as I used to, which is only fair, because I do need to have space in my head for other things you know). And I like Free Loan Investments and the Garlands too. I even almost like Cloetta Paris. And I did sing my heart o...

Re: The Budgies

I, too, remember a time when Nixon and the Tidy-Ups were all that mattered to me... aaaah. And the joy of discovering Ian and realising that he actually cared about Nixon too. It was a bit of a miracle. Anyway, this is a Budgies thread, isn't it? So I'd better say something about them. Like this: Th...

"and i find it strange how a single day could capture every shade of the summer" It is brilliant! It is! It is! I've always thought this line is the definition of indiepop in a way. I think Martijn thinks so too. Oh, and I believe the exact line is "and it's strange, looking back, how a single day ...

Re: Best Love Song Ever

I love the Pipettes' 'I love you'. I mean, I realise it is slightly ridiculous to say that the Pipettes have written the greatest love song ever but it is so happy . Exuberant is the word I need, I think. Apart from that, Belle and Sebastian's 'Dog on wheel's', and Jens's 'A higher power'. Or 'You a...

Re: what book are you reading?

Does that annoy you, Martijn? I find that, on the very rare occassions I read Greek books nowadays, I feel like the author is trying to show just how Greek everyone is. But it's probably because we are looking at our countries from the outside now. But, Marianthi. That cannot be. No author can be t...

Thank you, all. There is no copy of Quark Xpress lying around. I used to have one, back in the day, ah, in 2004, but I remember it was so old already it crashed if you so much as sneezed.

Help! (with InDesign and Photoshop and stuff like that)

Hello! I need to design a school's prospectus. I would like to avoid Microsoft Publisher if at all possible, if nothing else because I don't have it and I don't want to go out of my way to acquire it. I have Photoshop, but it is my understanding that it is not ideal. Oh, and I would like not to have...

Re: Which laptop?

would you not be able to buy a replacement power supply, if that's all that's wrong with it? We did. We bought one, and then it broke too. And then Toshiba kindly replaced the original one, except it broke too, and then we bought another one, and, guess what! It broke too! I really don't do anythin...
