    nice name
  3. avatar omgwtfdisco
    cheers! you were playing Lavs last week? nice set. good to hear something a bit different too.
  4. avatar Niall Harden
    um, yeah, as Julip.
    which means i now feel rather awkward about the fact that i was being facetious - it isn't a nice name, it's daft. i can't see myself or anyone i know going "hey, are you coming to oh em gee doubleyou tee eff disco tonight?" or "fancy oh-my-god-what-the-fuck down at white's?".

    which is a shame, cos the playlist looks decent and white's is a great place.
  5. avatar omgwtfdisco
    it's hard to gauge tone via text. i thought you were serious. oops. cheers for being honest tho. :) hopefully not everyone will subscribe to your opinion. we intentionally selected a rather garish name hoping it would look good against a simple backdrop on the poster. they're not quite finished yet so i can't show you what i mean yet.

    to solve the problem of not knowing what to call it you could invite your friends to "whites on a tuesday night" ;)

    anyways, don't let the name put you off. you should check it out.

    ps. you're Marinas brother right? small world.
  6. avatar the*optimist
    Ha, What are you on about? That's a Genius name.
  7. avatar omgwtfdisco
    cheers. i think... my sarcasm detector is broken.
  8. avatar dOUBLEwONDERFUL
    I would avoid it on the name alone and I know thats shallow but seriously its really cringe-worthy and thats an awful shame as F.A.U.X. being residents is class.
  9. avatar omgwtfdisco
    it's a shame people might might avoid the night based on the name especially since there is no turning back now.

    hopefully the music will conquer all......
  10. avatar the*optimist
    Aww come on!!? The name should never stop you liking anything, it's all about the music!

    Good luck mate, tough crowd here apparently.
  11. avatar omgwtfdisco
    tough crowd everywhere. cheers for the support tho. keep your eyes peeled for more mixes appearing soon. :)
  12. avatar dOUBLEwONDERFUL
    I know its just a name but whenever I read OMGWTF disco all it springs to mind is some 16 year old with a Crystal Castles t-shirt taking photos for her "INSERT SOCIAL NETWORK OF THE MONTH" and preening.
  13. avatar goodonpaper
    A clever name does not a quality club make, and vice versa. It'll stand on the reputation of the music and promotion. Skibunny, Radio K, TwoStep, Gifted, etc are all daft names out of context.

    The only potential postive outcome of further debate would be the instant revival of Belfast Dance Party. Which really should genuinely happen.
  14. avatar omgwtfdisco
    belfast dance party? sound intriguing. exactly what it says on the tin?

    if nothing else people will remember the name OMGWTFDISCO. like being slapped in the face with letters.

    xox
  15. avatar Steven Dedalus
    Surely the amount of letters is irrelevant, considering the fact that it's a completely unpronounceable name?

    Literally no-one will be able to say, "Are you going to OMGWTFDISCO tonight?"

    In the words of Artie, the Strongest Man in the World, "Brave.....but foolish!"
  16. avatar HePingPing
    I'm amazed at the reaction this topic has gotten. Actually, I'm not really. Isn't the name is irrelevant? I'd have thought it's just a good thing that someone is trying to provide a decent night out? If it ends up being a bit crap then fair enough, but doesn't logic dictate that you actually go and then take a disliking to it based on something with substance?

    It's very depressing that anyone who tries to do something new is met with such cynicism, surely we should all be banding together in support of new projects that hope to expand and improve the local scene? Rather than jumping on insignificant details and declaring that nobody will go, which is a ridiculous attitude to have. It's typical of the aul dour mindset people in this city have.

    [/quote:20ad8f147f]

    Erm, the majority of the posts on this thread have wished the night good luck but pointed out the sheer folly of calling it something like that.

    1. The name is unpronounceable, therefore making it difficult to say. Ahem.

    2. The nature of the name is something almost scientifically designed to get my back up. It stinks of Topshop, nu-rave, and hipsters. I hate irony.

    But, to be fair, I'm not the target audience, and if that's what the skinny jeans and the pointy shoes are into, fair play to them.

    But it was much better back in my day, etc, etc.
  18. avatar omgwtfdisco
    a good point, but, like i said before, you can invite your friends to whites on a tuesday night. just like you would, theoretically, invite your friends to the limelight instead of SHAG or menage-a-trois.

    at the end of the day the name isn't THAT important... right? :/

    xox
  19. avatar the*optimist
    Is it not the "Oh my god, what the fuc k disco?" Thats pretty memorable.
  20. avatar Lap Dog Shuffle
    TBH I think the name perfectly sums up the tunes in that mix... That or "OMGWTFISITSUMMER2007AGAIN" :?

    My first post!
    Would a rose by any other name smell as sweet? Unless you called it a crapweed, I suppose. The name is an eyecatcher alright.

    lol out loud @ not going to a club night based solely on the name.
  30. avatar dOUBLEwONDERFUL
    Its not the name though, its the connotations that go along with it and going by current "hipper than thou" box socials around, they aren't enjoyable affairs. If I just saw OMGWTF on a poster I would shake my head and walk on.
  31. avatar JTM
    Regardless of the name I will be checking this out.

    The alleys aren't shown on Google Maps though, so I've helpfully put arrows where they should be. Now there is no excuse for not being able to find it.

    EXCELLENT! thank you very much. :) top marks for helpfulness and presentation.

    agreed. you might as well call it ROFLCOPTERDISCO.

    the idea of someone using webspeak and not on the web is just annoying. it conjures up an image of a room filled with hairboys and twatgirls comparing their latest outfit from urban outfitters.

    What he said.

    Forget about this, I'm much more looking forward to the UVFUDARHCFTPUTQUTHLOLORANGEPARADE.

    I personally think that OMGWTFDISCO should be renamed Lalty Fun Fest.
  38. avatar fopp
    "webspeak" in generally is more than a bit annoying.
  39. avatar omgwtfdisco
    i like the sound of Lalty Fun Fest! either that or Club Purple Monkey Dishwasher.

  40. avatar Flatyre
    I hope it goes well. And also that those that had no intention of going anyway stop pretending that the name of a club really makes a difference.


    Want to go to an indie dance club tonight?

    I dunno, whats it called?
  41. avatar omgwtfdisco
    cheers. everyone has been very supportive... except a few. but they haven't really been that negative and in some cases pretty funny. my fav so far is...

    "you might as well call it ROFLCOPTERDISCO."

    although that was just an extension of ROFLOLDISCO... but still. props.

    So used to sarcasm in this place that I figured that's what those arrows were all about...


    True enough though, there are some songs in that play list that I like, but could I really enjoy them in this club despite it's name?........... Probably, yes.
