View Full Version : Lost Riff?

I'm sure you have all seen the Splinter making-of video where Dexter plays a couple of the guitar sections for Can't Get My Head Around You. After he plays the first two parts, there is a beautiful bass riff. Does anyone know if anything happened with that or if there is a complete version or song? ...or was it just an idea that got lost while recording the album.

I don't get why you post shit like this if you aren't trying to be funny. Because it's not funny, it's not informative, it's not mean, it doesn't make you look smart or special. It's purely mindless dribble that nobody cares about.

Yeah, so it posting shit like "zomg what's teh riff in the "CGMHAY" demo video?!?!".

Nobody cares about that, because anyone worth anything already knows it.

Post pointless shit, get pointless shit replies.

He wasn't telling people about it. He didn't know it so he asked. When I joined this board, I didn't know what it was, either. Fortunately, people were currently talking about, so I found out quickly. It was a harmless question, and just because he didn't know the answer doesn't mean that his post was stupid or pointless. So you posted stupid pointless shit to a guy who was asking a simple question, and not beint an ass about it. He even typed relatively well and such.

Hmm I'd say you do have a problem, in fact, with posting stupid pointless shit for no reason. Also you have a problem with thinking you're funny or smart. And when people call you out on your shit, you either stop posting in the thread or give some "whatever" cop out.

Well, thanks very much to dirtymagic92 for answering my question.

And Venom Symbiote, please grow up and get a life. I suppose I didn't know the answer because I've been busy living mine...

Le sigh. God forbid someone says something contrary to popular beliefs.

I mean, come on. I'm not intentionally sounding like a prick, but this thread has been made like...20 times this year. No exaggeration.

It's not your fault, but if you're the one posting the latest iteration, expect it to be taken out on you.

What did you expect him to do? He didn't know the title of it, so he couldn't search for "pass me by". That's the only search he could've done that would've helped. And it's not like he's going to filter through 100s of pages to find something that he doesn't even know what to look for. What did you honestly expect him to do? Asking questions that have been asked before only deserve insults when they're things like "when is the new album coming out?" or "who drummed on "can't repeat"?"

there was nothign dumb or annoying about this thread. So stfu because the only annoying thing about this thread is you.

No, there was nothing dumb or annoying about this thread, until you completely derailed it by harping on the stupid but completely predictable reply of Venom's. Just let it the hell go. Here and in every thread.

The first one is sort of a Bb, then it goes to an Ab. Then????

You have a BIG problems my friend...just because you think that's good to look "smart or special".And please don't use absolute words like "nobody","everybody".You can't be sure in everybody's minds and cares so you are just talking bullshit and trying to show it as a voice of community.
There is a very good russian phrase "pustoi chelovek", that means "an empty man"...I think that's a very appropriate word for you.That's my subjective opinion.

damn...I "look so smart and special" :D ...

That's exactly the kinda shit llamas used on me when I referred to "The Offspring" as "The 'Spring!" "Smart or special blah blah blah!!!!" She likes to act all better than everyone by being all condescending and shit!

This thread had no other place to go. The thread starter got the question answered, so if there's any place to stop Venom's idiotic replies in their tracks, this is a better than average place to do that. Wouldn't you say so?

1. I never said it is good to look "smart or special". I didn't even imply it.

2. "Everybody", in general conversational context, does not necessarily mean that I believe that EVERY SINGLE PERSON HERE agrees with me. It's just a lot easier than saying "for the most part, generally most people". "Everyone" or "no one" is a lot easier. And people can make their own decisions and figure out whether or not I really believe that every single person here would ever share the exact same opinion.

3. I'm not a man, so I'm pretty positive your Russian phrase doesn't work for me.

No, I would not say so. Unless, of course, you're a big fan of exercises in futility.

Bottom line, let Tijs and I delete when trolling/insults get out of hand, and don't leave us more to delete by trying to reason with the unreasonable.

She's correct, the basic consensus of the BBS it that Venom is excessively annoying.

I think someone pointed this out already, but I may just be imagining it. It is not a bass riff, it's just a non-distorted guitar if I remember correctly. The idea that Greg would play something audible nowadays is also very funny.


This is an entirely different topic, but Tijs/1565 seem to delete very sporadically. you'll delete responses to posts that are perfectly legible but leave the idiotic off-topic posts that spawned them.
I'm not really complaining, because I'd rather just have them both gone, just a point.

And I agree with you. But until we get to ban people just for being "excessively annoying," he stays.

PM me with examples if you really want to talk about this, and I'll make a new topic, because me replying twice about this is too much (meaning any more discussion of this here will be deleted). Tijs and I try to be as hands-off as possible, but we delete anywhere from 5-50 posts per week from the new album thread. In general can't expect everyone to be 100% on the topic listed in the subject line, so we'll prune back to where the derailment happened and just remove the derailment.

This reply shows that it was neither futile nor unreasonable. Now I'm not one to scream "PWN3D!!" or anything, but llamas did a fine job on this one. And I'll give credit to Venom as well for owning up to his douchebaggery.

Thanks.

I did make sure I wasn't derailing a thread that is on topic this time, because it even annoys me when it happens in something like the "new album" thread or something. I knew this thread was done with and no new conversation or information was going to come up, and I thought venom's comments were unreasonable, even more so than usual. So, I decided to say something about it. And venom did concede, which does also deserve credit.

Bottom line is that I wasn't starting a flame war or ruining a thread... I was just putting venom in his place in a time that I really felt it should be done. And it's not futile or pointless, because we all know that there are times when venom does realize he's wrong and maybe even learns from his mistakes. I think venom has something interesting to say maybe 40% of the time, and it'd be great if he can build his way up to becoming interesting much more often.

Then please take it to PM, because this forum cannot become trying to get someone to have something interesting to say 100% of the time. If every concession is going to take that many posts, it's really not worth it to me to let the board get overrun with it. XylophontreeZ, the ends do not justify the means.

Again, if you'd like to continue discussing moderation things with me, please PM me.

If you're talking about Pass Me By, go to YouTube and search "Offspring Recording Splinter". It's on the last 30 seconds of that clip.
