View Full Version : ATTENTION GRABBER: Moderately important thread.

Grabbed your attention eh?
Awesome.


Down to business.



In the golden era of R&M, I remember witnessing some classic bands being defended by R&M members. It was all in good fun, it was friendly, yet it was highly competitive.

I propose that we revive the practice of defending your band!


It will of course be done in organised threads, whereby options will be available for you to vote.


This is just a bit of fun, to show the compassion that you may have for a certain band.

If you wish to partake, please leave your name in this thread, but before you do, read the following rules.


This is not a "WHO DO YOU PREFER?" thread, it is based on inteligent competition, and using reasoning and clever wit.

Only 2 bands will be competing against each other at one time.

If this goes ahead, and a user who is moderately disliked poses a band, no tactical voting shal go on. It is all about writing skill and intelligence.

I am aiming to get two bands who are moderately similar. I.E: Tesla and Twisted Sister for example.


With that in mind, if you wish to participate, be quick! Not many places can be guaranteed.


Leave your name, the band you wish to support at my email:
iomiangushendrixpage66_6@ hotmail.com.


I already have a band whom I wish to support, yet if another user shows enough compassion for said band, I will be glad to hand it over to them.


Chin up, head down, and remember, it's only a bit of fun, so no gratuitous slandering!


-Craig (:p)

The reason why it died last time is because people kept dropping out over time. Lets hope people keep with it this time. I wont be entering since I suck at this stuff.

IAJP
10-28-2005, 12:36 PM
Yeah I suppose so, I think you'd rule at a Pink Floyd one though.


Take into account that the forum has matured a lot since the last one, I can think of a lot of people doing it this time. We'll see what happens eh.

if you are a Motley Crue fanboy, i would like you to send me a load of songs (including Sick Love Song) to me at josh_mark_barber @ hotmail.com

You can have it. I may not have enough time to post often on the forums for the next month or so. Sorry for all of this. I just looked at my calender and I have several important papers due, as well as, finishing my college applications.


I withdraw my participation for the time being. I may rejoin at a later date if its still possible. Joe can have matallica if he wants.

But you probably know that if I'm correct with my assumption.

What's that got to do with anything? You're right that I'm an NIN fan, but all of my favorite bands probably have influences I'm not crazy about myself.

I might consider doing this. It could only improve my writing skills. However, due to exams/moving out of college I'll need to know what period of time this will be run over, as there are times ahead when I won't be on mx.

If time isn't a problem, I'll do T:rolleyes::rolleyes:L (if none of the Tool thread regs want to)

Yeah you did, it was in my junk email box, weird.

Anyway, I have a list of following participants, it is as follows:

Joe (Gocaps) - Metallica.
IAJP (Me, :cool:.) - The Smiths.
Rothmans - Neurosis.
toaster135 - Meshuggah.

Creeping_Deth - Judas Priest.

ICB- Shadows Fall.

TheDMV - The Who.
G_Mac07 - Tool.
panthersfan16 - Slipknot.

Spat Out Plath - Motley Crue.
Diego - Mushroom Head.
shamed-angel - Dream Theater.
Magicaltroll - Pig Destroyer.
Wish - Machine Head.
Jacaranda - Jane's Addiction.
I Am Vikingcore - Korn.


OKAY!

So, we have 33 entrants, I need one more to make it complete. Only one.

The way the thread will work, is I shall open the thread, and commence / introduce the argument, then in no more less than 10 paragraphs, the participants must defend their band.
I shall put the bands in fair competition, as the Doors -VS- Korn would be slightly askew.


I was also thinking of doing it like 4 bands versus each other? Whatever, decide for yourselves, and let me know.

Other than that, a big Round of applause for all our entrants, they're very brave, it's not easy you know, and as you can see, it should be fun.

So maybe 1 more entrant? Thanks!

I'll decide that later.

I'm going to put them in order according to whoever desperately WANTS to put their argument forth first.

I'll be happy to go after the first couple are done. I'm still not sure if I'm doing this in the right kind of format. Plus I need more time to listen to Machine Head ;P

There is no "right" way.

Every way is right, and the more different, the more interesting.:)

Are rebuttal (sp?) posts also something we are judged on?

Sorry for all the questions, but I can't find anything on the last competition to check up on this stuff myself.

I know I'm going to lose in the first round because I'm against Med.

:upset:

What's the first round? Who's Med fighting for?

EDIT: If you fail to prove that Priest are better than Nirvana, I'll set fire to you...

It's Med though. He could beat me while in a coma.

whoa damn. i wasnt expecting it so quickly. the smiths vs jeff beck? how did that come to be.

iajp, give me some time to do my write up?

edit: and just for clarification, is there a length limit? you wrote, "no more less than ten paragraphs," and that's not really clear....

Stealth Bumped to attract attention/get questions answered whilst IAJP is online.

:)

IAJP

Righto.

What do you wanna know?


#1: I will start mine whenever, tonight if Pink Freud is ready.
#2: I have changed the rules, do as much as you feel is neccessary in order to convince people to vote for you.
#3: We will probbably do about 1 every 2 days, depending on popularity.
#4: Give me a list of how many people have finnished their's and I shall do a write up indicating who does which band when.


I hope I clarified that a bit, I've been really busy recently, I've had to revivse for some Mock exams. :o

These are the two main questions that I think need answering.

#1: No particular limit, it's all about substance, you know, "Quality over quantity" etc.

#2: Whenever you have finnished your article, post in this thread indicating so, therefore I will be able to make a nice little table detailing thus so.


That is very important actually, ideally I would like to do my own first, but if anyone else would like to precede me, then I'm not too bothered. We could start this here tonight if needs be! :)

The original thread by Betsy was the first time I heard Cryptopsy. The bands were Linkin Park, The Beatles and Cryptopsy. Good stuff.

That's not a problem. I haven't done a great deal on mine yet either, but tomorrow will be the first break from exams I've had to start putting this together properly.

Take your time. :)

Exactly, quantity over quality and that, :p.

That's a really tough decision. I've never heard anything from the Smiths at all though, so I don't think I'll vote.

IAJP

Heh heh, so, anyone have any questions about how this is being/is going to be done?

Can we take hits at the other band? Is it alright trashing the other band, if the trashing has a point and is not mindless of course. Or semi-not mindless?


Just in case I need to use that style :P.

dUSK

Well, I must say the first round threw a surprise my way. It seems as this is not an argument/debate as such, but more of a competition comparing our writing skills. It's written more like an article than argument, if you get what I mean.

This is all well and good, although it leaves me wondering what will occur in the second round. I presume we will just be required to extend upon what we have already established. Correct?

Toaster
11-13-2005, 01:52 PM
I figured it would be like a Q and A from your opponent. And you would have to defend aspects of your band that are widely unappreciated.

Well that is similiar to how I began writing my article. Although I was finding it hard to defend a band without an argument. This way makes things a little easier to write, although it leaves the "Defend A Band" title a little misleading.

It shall be interesting to say the least. :thumb:

Essentially yes, but remember, it's all in good nature, we're not doing this because we hate each other, we're bassically showing aleigances to said bands and then arguing their case.

If you follow.

Doctor Night
11-13-2005, 02:30 PM

What are you waiting for now?

Right, and we're back.

The thread was a success, now I need to know who else has finnished theirs.
