Holiday Schedule

Posted: June 22nd, 2008, by Marceline Smith

I’m off gallivanting yet again, this time to Bangkok to visit my good friend Claire and escape the horrible weather forecast for the UK. However, thanks to the wonders of WordPress, there will be new content nearly every day of my absence, even if no-one else at diskant lifts a finger. It’s a bit like when the school holidays rolled round and the TV schedules were suddenly full of Why Don’t You? and terrible Australian dramas, only even better!

Wil Forbis’s Bargain Bin Culture
diskant will still bring you a fresh dose of Forbis every Tuesday and Friday around 10am, ready for your morning coffee break. Try not to spit it all over your computer screen.

diskant Summer Catch-up 2008
This was going to be an article but it got way out of hand so instead every day at 4pm you’ll get a new blog installment of what the diskant team have been enjoying this Summer, starting with records and continuing with books, films, video games, bands, television & radio, zines, places & events and websites. It all starts properly tomorrow but look out later today for a special introductory offering from the legendary Greg Kitten.

And that’s not all!
I also present the first Talentspotter interview in approximately 15 years; a chat with Stonehaven’s finest export, Copy Haho. You’ll be hearing lots more from them soon, I predict, so why not read up on them now and you can make yourself look cool. They’re quite amusing too. Go go go >>

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.
