Happy new year!

Posted: January 2nd, 2003, by Marceline Smith

Well, I suppose it’s down to me to make the first post of 2003 and wish all our readers a happy new year! Everyone at diskant’s new year resolution is to blog more..ahem! Not that I’ve got anything to post, unless you want to hear the intricacies of postal sorting. You do? Ah, great. Oh, wait, I’m bound by the Official Secrets Act and can’t tell.

Err, right. Well, let’s bring back THINGS I LIKE.

Things I like:
– boingy retro sounding dance music [Yummy Fur, 808 State, Autechre, Pet Shop Boys]
– my new sandwich press. mmm, toasted sandwiches
– my old keyboard which apparently is the same one Low use!
– the enormous pile of books sitting by my bed waiting to be read

Things I don’t like:
– digging out old 7″s and discovering they’re not really that good any more
– not getting anything edible for christmas [unless yellow flower bulbs count]
– waiting for the diskant badges to arrive

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.
