TW, the travelling message board new  

In the 1920s, there was a notion known as "The travelling party". Rich people travelled from country to country, only to
meet up with each other at the most luxurious hotels and party all they could. So it was essentially the same people having an ongoing party that moved from capital to capital. Or so I've read.

Now, we all know that TW is doomed. It could go down terminally tomorrow. Then what will we do? Some TWers will go to Bowieaudio, some to Bnet, some traitors to BWW. Strawman already made an honorable effort to create a refuge in Hunky Dory and before that Sugar created the ghetto. But none of those is the answer. And we don't want to be scattered all over the net, do we?

No, Monkeyboy already created the solution for us with this idea. We should become a travelling message board! We should infect host MBs like parasites, frolic around there (is the allegory already halting?) until we have emptied it if all its comic potential, then move on to the next. Worried that the musical (or otherwise) profile of the host MB doesn't fit yours? Don't worry, we'll just carry on our Bowie discussions just like we're doing right now. After atease, we invade a Britney site, a Nazi site, one for gay policemen, or whatever we see fit. It is imperative that we stay together as a TW collective, so I propose that Adam, advised by an advisory board consisting of Monkeyboy plus the mods of TW single-handedly is to make the decision on where and when to move TW to a new board.

There are endless possibilities for extending this concept. At every move, we should have lotteries where the most popular usernames, Dara, Adam, Beltene and Monkeyboy, are handed out. And so on...

Hell, if waking up in the morning felt like this song sounds, I think I'd appreciate every day of my life a hell of a lot more. (guiltpuppy on 'Speed of Life')

Re: TW, the travelling message board new [re: Emil]  

Great idea. I'm dreading the day when I come to TW to find it a dead, rotting carcass...and sad as it sounds it would be horrible not to know where everyone is and for us to be scattered around the web all lost....

I agree Emil.....we should at least arrange for some kind of contigency plan where we can all go when this place kicks the bucket.

It is an excellent idea, we could become something like a cross between gypsies, locusts and battlestar gallactica.

I think invading a Nazi site is a bad idea. Those people are crazed motherfuckers and they'll cause a lot of trouble if you get them angry. Look at that judge who was just murdered in Chicago.

OK, so I don't insist on invading a Nazi site. It is certainly not central to my idea. Pick a discussion site for the plumbing industry instead, or whatever.

iyou could try britney of you want to be bored. they all would say one of the following:

'She's pretty!'

'She can too sing!'

and of course 'you're just jealous because you're ugly and gay.'

Britney


While this might have been fun a few years ago, I think that at this point they've been invaded and trolled so many times over they have either learned to ignore it or developed some pretty hair-trigger mods.

This is why I think Radiohead has worked:
- It's a band that most of us have some level of knowledge about to begin with.
- The fans fancy themselves to be arty, intellectual, and open-minded typed but really aren't.
- Their appeal to different age groups is a plus. I don't know why.
- The range in fandom from "I like them but they're just a band" to "I collect Thom droppings" is wide.

If we put our heads together and keep an eye on further possibilities, I'm sure the next location will be so obvious when we find it that it will be like atease never happened.

Re: TW, the travelling message board new [re: Monkeyboy]  

The Alice Cooper board, "SickThingsUk" was fun, until I got banned. It would be nice if you guys invaded them and pissed them off big time.

- Everyone knows at least a few of the Coop's songs, right?
- The people there are your basic 40 year olds who "try" to be cool and funny. There is still great diversity though. Some 13 year olds there too, I believe.
- There are tons of people there who collect things like cyclops' arms and canes, and then others who like School's Out and call themselves fans.

C'mon! Avenge me. AVENGE ME!

Hee hee. Staples. Alice Cooper is a weirdo.

And I once went to a Radiohead listening party, and everyone, like everyone were a bunch of modern hippies. I really felt out of place there. But i won a prize so that was cool.

The sad thing was before the album was played they showed music videos, and everyone cheered for Paranoid Android but nothing else. I felt like I was in a room with a bunch of casual trendy fans. Which emphasizes one of Monkeyboy's points.

Boo, boo. Get off the stage.

Because, in the words of a Radiohead fan friend of mine:

"It's like the angel doesn't have to be in the helicopter because she has wings...but she is, and that's like, just so cool how they took it to another level like that."

Like what?

"You know, like having an angel in a helicopter."

Re: TW, the travelling message board new [re: pablopicasso]  

When it was released, it had to be edited because of the content. In The United States, they edited out the nudity and sexuality, but left in the guy hacking himself up. In Canada, they edited out the hacking and breast squeezing, but left the mermaids alone. i watched a program on the issue on latenight muchmusic once, and they showed clips of the band saying how ridiculous the Americans were that violence was okay, but nudity was wrong.

a similar incident happened with the video for rabbit in your headlights. it was only allowed to play after 9 pm in both countries, but for different reasons. in canada, again, it was the violence of the man being hit by cars and run over again and again. in the states, it was because the guy was creepy.

Boo, boo. Get off the stage.

The angel is quite clearly male. It doesn't have any breasts like all of the other female characters (which are really quite prominent). Clearly your friend had no idea what they were talking about.
