duke of harringay: I had to say this
"So when a copy of ŚWaitressą fell in my lap, I had the review all ready to go. It talked of Moments and Memories and dismissed their current effort with a toss of the hand, a flick of the wrist and a Śweąre all different people nową. I thought Iąd let them off lightly, thought I had played the drifted-apart former lovers part pretty well.
Then I listened to the album. And then I listened again."

"Fuck me, it's the Duke of Harringay."

... which was my reaction exactly, and i thought, oh hell, ree, you know you've been secretly reading all (well, almost all) those emails that get filtered into your "sinister" email folder... go on, speak up. besides, my 5-year anniversary is coming up."

"Christ, If the duke can manage it so can I.
I shall start, If I may, with some true knowledge from my considerably sized noggin."
Genevieve Wesley: when you're 21 you're no fun
"A ChristoperLeonard post! That makes my heart feel happy. There have been some good posts. I want more travel narratives from The Pinefox though."
robin stout: Soup
"Well, it seems that Sinister has RISEN FROM THE D!E!A!D! like something, well, sinister. All these old faces remind me of the Sinister back in 1986, when I was still in short trousers and Sinister posts were delivered by folding them into paper aeroplanes and throwing them from the tallest building in town. In Kidderminster that meant climbing up to the fourth storey of the Art College. Some of the locals said that if you went up that high your brain would pop, so they would stand at the bottom with umbrellas over their heads just in case. It never did, though."...
"Also, I love September because it makes me want to make SOUP!! In fact, I am making some soup right now to keep me warm till the morning. Do you want to know how to make soup? Here is HOW:
Salt and pepper
2 large carrots, diced
2 large parsnips, diced
1 onion, diced
600ml vegetable stock
1/2 teaspoon of fresh thyme
Put the butter and carrots and parsnips and onion in a pan and cook for 7 minutes. Add the vegetable stock and cook for 10-20 minutes, until the vegetables are soft. Blend vegetables until smooth. Serve HOT. :)
I know what you're thinking: "I'd like to make some soup, but I just don't have the thyme." Well, neither did I, so I just used some basil. I don't think it matters. It's all just leaves. If I didn't have that I'd have used bits of cactus, or rubbings from the grassy underbelly of a sheep. Hey, improvise! Making soup is fun!!"
David Hewitt: when i'm cleanin' windows
"Boy howdy, that Mark Casarotto, eh? Is there anything he CAN'T do?
DON'T MIND ME
Well, with a few years under my belt, I'm neither a fresh-faced newcomer, bursting with potential, nor am I a grizzled veteran, who's seen it all before. But I'm going to post anyway, dammit.
Here's to the overlooked middle children of Sinister. We've been around long enough for you to decide that you definitely don't want to shag us after all, but not quite long enough for you to have developed a nostalgic fondness for us. We don't promise brand-new, happy, good times, nor do we remind you of your slimmer, prettier, more popular days. In many respects, we're the worst of both worlds. I haven't earned the right to get all nostalgic about the bad old days, nor can I really justify introducing myself. So sod it. I'm just going to post the same rambling load of old bollocks I always do. You've been warned."
