Re: Are you speaking? new [re: Marquis]  

Ok, so let's recap!

You're:

~ judgemental
~ a hypocrite
~ an assclown
~ showing no signs of intelligence
~ an over-analytical deranged pseudo-psychologist who thinks he can tell things about someone even when only speaking to them a couple of times

Am I missing anything?

A wrong assumption of myself on the part of you.

Wow, I like the ring of the old one, but this one makes sense out of context. Please change your signature to this, actually. Or maybe we oughta have a vote? You can take whichever one doesn't win the popular vote, so that way you can still be contradictory.

I'd like to reiterate, though, please:
-keep your mouth foaming into one post at a time. Five of your biting witticisms in a row is a little tough to stomach.
-Speaking of which, you really ought to refrain from humor from the time being. You've got enough of a burden being right all the time without worrying about trying to get my goat as well.
-eat a bag of dicks

And come on, assclown? That is so 2002.

Where's my little trouble girl?

"Wow, I like the ring of the old one, but this one makes sense out of context."

Okkkkkkkkk.

" Please change your signature to this, actually. Or maybe we oughta have a vote? You can take whichever one doesn't win the popular vote, so that way you can still be contradictory. "

I love when hypocrites like yourself talk. You provide humour while continuing to make yourself look as assoholic as ever.

"I'd like to reiterate, though, please:

But what about six though?

"-Speaking of which, you really ought to refrain from humor from the time being. You've got enough of a burden being right all the time without worrying about trying to get my goat as well."

You own a goat? Can I meet him? Or is it a her? I must know!!!!!!!!!

"-eat a bag of dicks"

Eating a bag of kicks is conducive to my tastes.

"And come on, assclown? That is so 2002"

Really? I didn't hear it until 2003!

Re: Manic new [re: Nature_Boy]  

Thank you for that.

In which case i shall refrain from using it.

I can understand abbreviations on mobiles ( space and cost ),But on a board like this, I consider it stupid.

Baby you just keep me coming back [re: NoControl]  

Wow, you're priceless. If you ever left NVQ, you could be the next TJ. I mean that. You should be proud.

I'm worried, though, by your lack of profile. I'd feel a little bad if you turned out to be as much of a child as you seem like; then again, I'd probably feel a lot worse that there was someone over the age of 17 who would actually behave like you.

And I guess I should put a note here about how not every 17 and under person here is an idiot, and not every older poster is great. You all know that.

Seriously, though, hypocrisy? Do you even know what that means? Where have I ever told you 'I'm right, you're wrong. Period'? Please, find it.

What with our Culture and our charm and our brains [re: White Prism]  

I’ve long held the belief that the ‘true’ experts in these matters are the musically-illiterate hoi polloi; the ones who are able to grope with a few technical terms such as ‘Fab Four’ and ‘great!!’ which they then attempt to cohere into the foundation for a solid argument. As I’m sure you’d guess, a rich source for such people is the undergraduate literati; particularly those who consider themselves too cutting-edge to give oral group-presentations on novels or subjects in which they have an ounce of knowledge, so tackle LPs they found in their dad’s attic instead. Well, what better way to gauge the Small Faces’ cultural impact than to get a couple of smashed students to draw up some random facts at 4 am the night before their talk?

Actually, the band they wanted to sell to the world was The Beatles. I admire originality, but fair enough. Up for discussion: What was their social impact on youth & drug culture? Pretty big, yep. Why is Sgt Peppers continually tipped as the greatest album ever made by critics and fans alike? Uh-oh. . . NME reader? How did they maintain their popularity while remaining the most experimental 60s band? Hmmm. . .

Among some of the other honours bestowed upon them were:
-first band ever to write their own music!
-first band ever to use backward tape loops!
-they were experimenting a full 30 years before Radiohead!

‘Fuck you!’ I muttered. Actually, I didn’t; I bit my tongue. But they placed undue emphasis on ‘Revolution #9’, considering how unrepresentative it is of their canon, and disparaged their own argument a little by saying that no-one ever listened to it.

- APPLAUSE -

Question One comes from someone who believes that the Beach Boys (esp. Smile) and the Small Faces (c.f. my first post ) were more experimental than the Beatles. What makes ‘Revolution #9’ so good? Nice question. --Actually, for your information, no one had attempted anything like ‘Revolution #9’ prior to the Beatles. Brian Wilson was struggling desperately to keep up with the Beatles all through the 60s and this was why he finally had a nervous breakdown. Nice put down. Even though I know jack about Brian Wilson, I imagine it was a little more complicated than that. No matter. . .

I mention something about ‘Interstellar Overdrive’ and ‘The Return Of The Son Of Monster Magnet!’ I couldn’t remember whether they used tape loops or not (the tape loop argument is becoming rather tedious by now), but the unexpected positioning of those tracks on a pop record surely made them the Beatles’ equal?

Suddenly, there’s a confusion over release dates and I’m tricked into thinking that Sgt Peppers is The White Album. Wait! Let me see. . . 1966, 1967, 1968. . .

And as it turns out, they’d barely heard of Zappa’s name. (Sorry, NoControl.. )

- Moving on!

Next question is about whether the Beatles would have made it big if Epstein hadn’t discovered them. (Not relevant to this discussion here, but the answer was ‘yes’, of course).

Time for one final question: (from dizzy, unshaven nonce on the front row) Would you say that Sgt Peppers is more experimental than Exile on Main Street? Now, I like Exile very much, but as experimental albums go. . .

- APPLAUSE -

So Marquis is correct: According to Manchester’s two esteemed Beatle-nerds, ‘The White Album’ is the most popular experimental record ever!

As John, Paul, George and Ringo leave the hot seat, we’re informed that the next group are giving presentations on American Beauty and whether it deconstructs the American Dream. . . Ah. Needless to say, I pay no attention, and I'm left fondling a handout which has Paul McCartney's grinning mug gleaming from it, with far greater concerns over resolving the tape loop argument which looping in my head. . .

‘Deboraarobed!’
Fuck.

Weave a circle round him thrice,
And close your eyes with holy dread

Wow! You're a moron!

"I'm worried, though, by your lack of profile. I'd feel a little bad if you turned out to be as much of a child as you seem like; then again, I'd probably feel a lot worse that there was someone over the age of 17 who would actually behave like you."

You're talking to me about demeanor? Good christ! A walking contradiction indeed!

"And I guess I should put a note here about how not every 17 and under person here is an idiot, and not every older poster is great. You all know that. "

Does that even make sense?

"Seriously, though, hypocrisy? Do you even know what that means? Where have I ever told you 'I'm right, you're wrong. Period'? Please, find it."

You're taking your own hypocrisy out of context. Your above quotes are not how or why I called you that. You must be blind.
