If you don't know about something, you have two options: a) find out about it, or b) keep your mouth shut about it.

My my, touchy aren't we? I just asked "Who?" IMO, considering they're still 20 years away from eligibility, a poll for them is still a bit premature.

Not touchy at all. It seems incredibly arrogant to go onto the thread of an artist you know nothing about and expect to be informed as to who they are. If you wanted to know so badly, you could have easily used AMG or Wiki.

Liam - people come to this site, peruse it some, enjoy the commentary, post their own statement and have a little fun. Who the hell made you the gate-keeper? You are the one who likes to b*tch that this is an open forum. If someone wants to type "who", let them. It is not your job to police everyone's knowledge of music. This site has become an absolute bore because of you and you alone. But I will keep stopping by every now and then to see what bile and arrogance is spewing from your little fingertips. Really - you need to get out more. Stay away from the computer.

Philip - have fun here and don't pay attention to "Grumpy". And I agree with you - who?

Ofcourse, because we all know that Dameon is absolutely vituous to a fault, void of any arrogance and bile. Thank you for setting me straight, oh holy one.

A bit hypocritical to accuse me of acting the "gate-keeper" when you're doing the same right now, don't you think?

Keep thinking that in your head little boy. The only thing I even respond to these days are you ridiculous comments and I will continue to do that.

What was the point of responding Philip's harmless sarcastic question? The answer - none! You did it just to attempt to make yourself feel superior. I have dealt with little geeks like you my entire life and the fun part is that you all still don't get it. As long as you continue to attempt to put yourself on a higher plane than everyone else here, no one is going to care about what you have to say. And you know what makes that sad? It is because you actually have some knowledge in that pinhead of yours. It's just too that bad you have no idea how to communicate with people, because someone might actually learn something from you.

I have a new nickname for you - Hilary Clinton Jr.

First, how was his quesion sarcastic?

I didn't do anything to make myself feel superior at all. It was actually to do with the amount of times I see people use their own ignorance as some sort of argument against an artist.

Be sure to follow this up with the exact same patronising crap I've come to expect from you - something about arrogance and bile, I'll bet - although I'll take the chance to remind you that you haven't always been Mr. Niceguy yourself.

My 2 cents: neither Phillip nor Liam did anything "wrong" and they both got the responses they deserved.

If you are going to post on anartists thread and simply say "Who?" = "I have no knowledge of theis artists and therefore am implying by virtue of my current ignorance (not a judgment there, just a dry fact) that they may not merit a thread..", then you are fair game for a Liam to come along behind and call that out as kinda dumb.

By the same token, if you're going to be as blunt an instrument as Liam chose to be, he's gotta predict that he's about to be perceived as an bit of an asshole, and challenged as such.

I personally have no ojections to Liam's occasional abrasiveness - I find it entertaining in conversations that would otherwise become polite and BORING!!!!!! Tea and crumpet crap - I'm OK, you're OK blandness.

You have to remember that this is not like real world contact and doesn't follow the same rules of protocl and decorum - it's a hybrid of debate and video game; its fun to watch two posters hit each other with swords and hammers; for me it is, anyway.

Go ahead and saddle up on that high horse and swing away at Liam - but for me I hope to see him chuck a brick at ya and knock ya off!

I am actually in love with your analogies, Shawn! Classic :D

ps tried any of those albums yet?

Posted by Liam on Friday, 04.25.08 @ 13:51pm

wow. lol just wow. Maybe it's just because that's how the site is set up, but I do think having a poll set up for every new artist is premature. That's just me. No, I wasn't being sarcastic or arrogant. The only reason I noticed this one in the first place was because it had appeared on the left side of the monitor among recently voted for artists, so I was hoping I could find something out. Instead, there was nothing. I was actually hoping someone could recommend some songs of theirs I should check out. When it comes to checking out groups I've not heard of, I'd rather get recommendations from fans than cold info from wiki or allmusic. Call me crazy.

So with all that said, and hopefully people's piss and vinegar fully, if not wrongfully, played out... can I get some descriptions and recommendations from the peeps here?

I'll take the chance to remind you that you haven't always been Mr. Niceguy yourself. - Liam

Only at you, Liam my boy. Only at you.

Posted by Dameon on Saturday, 04.26.08 @ 10:03am

The Def Leppard thread would beg to differ.

Posted by Liam on Saturday, 04.26.08 @ 12:35pm

That is the best you can do - one thread. Keep trying little buddy. Like I said, personally, I enjoy your goes at people and their tastes.

Posted by Dameon on Saturday, 04.26.08 @ 14:35pm

Well, you've had goes at lightlinli, Kit, Casper and Shawn (at the very least).

And you're saying that "that is the best you can do" almost makes it sound as if you're making this into some sort of contest. So grow up.

"You telling me to grow up. Now that is funny, little boy."

Posted by Liam on Saturday, 04.26.08 @ 14:39pm

And by "you've had goes at" I actually mean "you've personally attacked."

Posted by Liam on Saturday, 04.26.08 @ 14:40pm

Looks to me as if this whole thread went into an argument between liam and everybody else. In other words, it went off topic from Autolux. I guess that says something about their significance.

Autolux roxors; stupid new album taking forever...

Posted by BLAHMASTER on Sunday, 03.21.10 @ 09:28am
