Twelve paces behind the cool kids

Posted: January 27th, 2003, by Marceline Smith

diskant finally notices that Pitchfork have a new design and a new weblog thing called Repeat. Don’t think much of the redesign [the vertical menu is just…wrong!] but the weblog, where they’re writing short bits about single songs, is looking pretty cool. I’ll go add it to our links then.

I don’t like anything at the moment but I can tell you I hate sitting doing nothing, sitting reading books, trying to remember to take bright orange pills three times a day and dealing with the damned housing benefit fools. I don’t even know what day it is.

Marceline is the fierce, terrifying force behind diskant.net, laughing with disdain as she fires sharpened blades of sarcasm in all directions. Based in Scotland, her lexicon consists of words such as 'jings', 'aboot' and 'aye': our trained voice analysts are yet to decipher some of the relentless stream of genius uttered on a twenty-four hour basis. Marceline's hobbies include working too much and going out in bad weather.
