PDA

View Full Version : The most entertaining thing happened on MySpace

Some time ago, a bulletin topic was posted on what bands you think are overrated. One band I listed were The Strokes, since (I like them but...) don't find them as good as allegedly "everyone" does. I posted another bulletin saying how my opinion had nothing to do with how overrated they are, and how I was probably wrong to list them. Some die-hard fans from my school saw this, misread because "we cant b arsed 2 rd blocks of text!!!q!bg!11" and completely misinterpreted what I was saying, and a lot of moronic comments followed. Therefore, just for provocation, I listed why the Strokes aren't so good, and as a result one person even sent a personal message saying:


STOOPID. everyone knows the strokes are AwesomeMcAwesome. BETTER THAN YOU. they can do NO wrong. yeh. how you like that?

Now, I tried my best to cut this story short, especially as I know that no-one wants to know about my businesses. I didn't make this so people would side with me, or to be two faced, since I never actually said anything offensive about them (and I am aware of how pathetic it is). But I posted this topic to make a general point, and it takes into account some of the 14-year-old idiots who post on this BBS and think "the offspring r punx u fagz". It doesn't matter what age group, what label (be it "retros/indie rockers", chavs, goths, emos or whatever) or general taste in music is involved, you will always get someone or an entire group of people who know either absolutely fuck all about music, or act all high and mighty when you "diss" their favourite band. I made this to bring up two points:

1) The BBS is not the only place where up-their-arse "punks" or musical non-experts exist. They are surprisingly much closer to home than you think. What is very scary is that these lads are in my year, and some have already turned 18
2) People are so closed minded and take music so seriously that they have spasms and unnecessary paddy-wacks over the sliiiightest bad thing said about a band they like/love.

But, it is always good to laugh at these people. I have never been entertained so much. And if you like a lot of genres / are broad minded / have a slightly broad taste (you actually DO like a bit of everything and not just "lol rap rnb and a bit of garage which i guess means i like a bit of everything lol") and don't get so bothered of someone thinks your favourite band are crap/doesn't like them, be proud. It is understandable to want to strangle some people for knowing jack shit about real music, but have the last laugh and love yourself for loving and knowing more.

I do truly apologise to anyone on MySpace who had to endure too many bulletins of mine though.

Fuck the Strokes and fuck you. No one cares about your pathetic MySpace bullshit. Race traitor.

You actually had something fairly worthwhile on your bulletins? All I seem to get are those stupid chain mail things that you have to send to 10 people within 5 minutes or you're balls will explode or whatever. Words really can't express how much I hate those chains. I'm talking to you, Leah! :cool:

If it happens, I'll post a picture up in the photo thread. Just for you Maria, just for you

Andy

Well, if my balls explode that'll be a problem.

Andy

I think that first question is probably better answered by a historian. However, I think I can answer this; a castrate is one who had their balls cut off before they reached puberty, meaning no testosterone could get released (no testes = no testosterone). This allowed for them to have their girlish light voices for the whole of their life (a life, incidentally, that was lived like a king).
A eunoch, however, (i think) was one who were castrated by Alexander the great as a means of control, or punishment. Either way, eunochs were castrated after they reached puberty - I think it was a way of making them more focused so they didn't think about sex.

And if a man get's his penis cut off he will bleed. Quite a lot. He would also have no penis.

Andy

well, if he doesn't get any medical attention he will die (if not blood loss, or infection of wound, he'd die due to a bladder infection.

If he does get medical attention quick enough, they could probably re-attach said penis. However, if this isn't the case then I guess a penis transplant? Or, they would have to re-route the urethra like they do in sex-change ops.

Andy
01-11-2006, 03:39 PM
Never! It is one of my quotes of the day. I shall change it when someone posts something funnier.

Oh, and apologies to Kerr for overtaking his thread with penis information.

Andy
01-11-2006, 03:42 PM
That's not what I meant. It was just a little bizarre, that's all.

Andy
01-11-2006, 03:48 PM
Haha treat me BAD Maria! Well, if you were here maybe I wouldn't be so unresponsive. Eh, eh, wink wink, nudge nudge.

Andy
01-11-2006, 03:58 PM
Well that's the price you pay when you're as pretty as this :cool:

lol, this thread has gotten so bizarre

Andy

Imagine having sex with God! That would be fucking awesome. Get it, fucking awesome? Yeah you do.

I think I should be praised for not asking you if you've been drinking yet, lol.

Oh god, The Strokes. Ergh, they are mediocre, man. Shit, I thought they were gonna fucking rule...but they didn't. =(

The Strokes are easily one of the most trite, boring, pretentious, and all around horrible bands ever.

I remember liking one song from them, but that was back when I was stupid.

They're one of the bands that never seemed to have any potential from what I've heard, so I've never bothered to go more in depth.

01-11-2006, 07:21 PM
Goddammit, I have Is This It. I thought it would rule, like all the other 100 albums recommended by Spin that I had gotten already, and to my dismay, IT SUCKED BAD. No, there is NO potential for them whatsoever. They are THE WORST band I have EVER heard.

Andy
01-11-2006, 07:23 PM
I personally couldn't give a shit about them.

Careful. You might have already torn your hymen, but I've heard it could hurt as far as the first few times.

You have a very strange definition of "brain melting". Not to mention "cyber sex".

Well they may have it set to 40 posts a page.

Both of those are the same extremely good point worded differently.

And that sounded completely retarded.

Yeah, but their post was still on the first page. It's like saying "this page".

All About Eve
01-11-2006, 08:05 PM
maybe it's like, 38 per page.

T-6005
01-11-2006, 08:07 PM
38 or 40, you'd still see the "cyber sex".

Bets on how long until Andy receives poems of undying love?

The Strokes are overrated although saying that their new song isn't too bad.

I hate people who say contemporary bands are overrated. Overrated is a completely subjective term that depends entirely on how much their friends and social circles like that particular band.

That being said I like the Strokes a lot.

Your MySpace experience sucks.

Actually, everyone's MySpace experience sucks unless they have gotten messages from
1) at least 3 million Nigerians in bad English
2) a pervy married American asking to get naughty with them
3) a fake person with a picture scanned off a jeans ad

Kerr, um, sorry about your experience. Maria, wtf? Just when I think I'm used to you and you can't "wtf" me anymore, you go and do it again. Andy, you might want to double-bag it.

Andy
01-12-2006, 10:33 AM
Hah, don't worry guys; I know to take everything Maria says with a pinch of salt!

Kerr

I thought that MySpace experience was quite funny, actually, almost like self-pwnage. But point is, there are all kinds of people who know nothing about music and think so highly of themselves and their tastes, and these people can easily be your own friends. I think I just gave this thread the wrong title.

I think that's happened to me once.
