Well, I saw Ghost World this afternoon

Posted: November 22nd, 2001, by Marceline Smith

There’s something just great about going to the cinema in the afternoon, particularly how it’s daylight when you go in and evening when you come out. I’m going to do it more often. Anyway, the film was pretty damn good. All cartoony looking and funny and true. I was kind of perturbed by the storyline though. Either I’m a complete stereotype or they based that movie on me, just changing the location and details so I could complain it wasn’t like how it really happened. It was kind of funny actually although a bit too deja vu on occasions. I did think Thora Birch was too pretty to be believable though and I didn’t really like the ending much. Still, it’s probably the best film I’ve seen this year [out of all the, er, three films I’ve seen this year]. Yeah, go see. Unless you’re Greg Kitten and they’re not showing it anywhere near you. Hoho.

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.
