I got pointed in the direction of Nat from OXES old Baltimore Rowdy Collective website. It’s very very funny and stupid [“We talked in the destructo voice”] but in their list of Rowdy Slogans is one Break Stuff [the name of our stupid Trail of Dead site]. I always thought we just stole that off Fred Durst and he was going to come round and kick my ass one day but no, we also stole it off a bunch of crazy psychos. Nice one. However if I ever get killed I’d like you all to point the finger at Fred Durst, those OXES boys were no trouble when they stayed round our house.

I think we need to make up some slogans for Break Stuff though. The BRC ones are great: Education is for the Stupid; Don’t Eat, Die; WHHHHYYYYY!! and, my favourite, Crying. . . Heard it Before.

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.
