  • LordePots haha good point. also i disagree about snox. he comes off a lot worse online to a lot of people than he actually is. plus he's got a handicap for being australian. as far as australian males go id say hes one of the least ignorant ive ever had the displeasure of conversing with lol
    March 21 06:59 PM

  • LordePots apology would have been warranted if u hadnt demanded it and been so condescending about it agreed but u were a being big twat and i dont apologize to people who are being twatty. that is the sole reason i didnt apologize, none of that other stuff. trve facts. but agreed on that last bit

  • Jacquibim It's all good, I'm going to keep writing and doing my best to improve and hope the mods recognise my efforts :)
    February 20 08:22 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Thanks, man. Good to see that you started reviewing again as well.
    February 20 03:43 PM
  • Jom Sounds good, I appreciate you keeping me in the loop!
    February 20 02:56 PM
  • StrangerofSorts thanks man (: glad to see you posting reviews again
    February 20 01:29 PM
  • VheissuCrisis Thanks Matt! Really pleasantly surprised here. As mark says below, hope you get a ghost promotion in the near future man!
    February 20 11:45 AM
  • cryptside Yeah, by all accounts it seems there will be a secondary set of promos due to the fact that they talk specifically about this being the first round. Just me hoping though. :]
    February 20 10:21 AM
  • ComeToDaddy Someone had to fly the flag, might even put something together for Ristorante now that I've got the little tag to get it some attention haha. Thanks man, pretty stoked (:
    February 20 10:11 AM
  • cryptside Thanks man, seriously appreciate it. I'm very happy that it happened, I'm hoping that they just ghost promote you and get it over with.
    February 20 10:06 AM
  • SnakeDelilah yup, they're like brand new with horns
    February 17 10:30 PM
  • SnakeDelilah check foxing
    February 17 09:39 PM
  • AmericanFlagAsh Haha I know I know. It gave me a good laugh exactly for that reason.
    February 16 08:29 PM
  • AmericanFlagAsh This post from you in 2010 on the All Delighted People thread made me laugh: "I'll probably never listen to this, but nice review Kirg" and now you have it at a 5
    February 16 09:57 AM
  • Metalstyles Busy! Busy but increasingly positive. 2014 was pretty rough for me (which is more than a little weird for me to type knowing what hell you went through that year), but I'm slowly getting back on track, finding little things to appreciate and finding more motivation for everything. And how are you man, what's up?
    February 11 08:07 AM
  • Jacquibim I went with my Autechre, Krusseldorf and Ulcerate reviews, the latter has been pretty much completely re-written since you last read it.
    February 6 08:02 PM
  • Arcade why p4k sucks -
    February 6 06:58 PM
  • Ponton I got drunk but why not. Give her another go
    February 6 05:36 AM
  • Trebor. Thanks man. It sure is, I see you've been listening to crash of rhinos and wu lyf and 5d Moon
    February 6 12:34 AM
  • Hurricanslash Ayyyyy, sorry about the whole discussion in your thread.
    February 4 12:50 PM
  • LordePots not enough to feel the need to bring it to your shoutbox, jesus man
    February 4 04:30 AM
  • Jacquibim Will do, any reviews you think I should reference?
    February 3 02:01 PM
  • Mongi123 Awesome but no Floating Away In Every Direction or Kenotic? Those are my two favs so far.
    February 3 12:01 PM
  • Mongi123 I've only heard Raising Your Voice and Kenotic but they're both amazing even though Raising Your Voice does drag at times.
    February 3 11:58 AM
  • Mongi123 Ok and also checked out Kenotic for the first time. Blown away and it may be a 5 soon haha
    February 3 11:56 AM
  • Mongi123 Hey bro check out my latest rev. I think you'd love them.
    February 2 11:44 PM
  • TalonsOfFire I'm glad you think I have a chance haha, there's so many applicants this year and Jom said they'd up the stakes for the position. But they cut 15 people so that might mean they're gonna let like 5 users be promoted
    February 2 06:40 PM
  • Gameofmetal That means a lot man, thank you. And yeah I'd agree with all your other choices.
    February 2 02:20 PM
  • Gameofmetal Do you really think that? I'm pretty sure I wouldn't get it, but thelastsignal has convinced me to throw in my hat just because.
    February 2 01:59 PM
  • Deviant. Glad I could help, and nice buy. Marley's a freaking gem. There's a Jamaican "rasta' styled pair, and I swear to god the volume gets louder whenever I jam some reggae haha
    February 2 05:04 AM
  • TalonsOfFire Cool thanks a lot. I'm guessing they promote only a few people per year, Oranges and Johnny will almost certainly get it and maybe Scuro or gameofmetal.
    January 31 02:53 PM
  • TalonsOfFire I'm still waiting for the news article and will probably apply but idk what my chances will be, especially against some of the other applicants but we'll see. Do you remember the process being very stressful or difficult to get the position?
    January 31 02:35 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Did you used to be a contributor?
    January 31 01:58 PM
  • Hyperion1001 haha well im glad you found something to like about it, tbh uviol is my favorite track too and one of my favorite Ae tracks in general. it reminds me of being in a quiet industrial environment with lots of steel and glass at very sharp angles all around me with snow glently falling from the sky. its a very evocative track.
    January 30 04:29 PM
  • IntriguingSergei Haha, very true; I'm sure I'd already know! :P That's actually very interesting, if unsurprising - this site does work a lot from prejudice. To be honest, I wouldn't say that Sergei circumvents perceptions of my main account - it's more of a means to write some pretty silly experiments and see what people think without any context (which, I suppose, is similar...)
    January 30 11:37 AM
  • cryptside I don't think we are friends on fb, and of course I am at work where I have horrible reception on my phone and no access to fb on my work comp. Let me try to find on fb though.
    January 30 10:31 AM
  • cryptside Don't know if any of this is helping you lol.
    January 30 10:28 AM
  • cryptside who didn't seem to care if he lived or died the last six months of his life. He was my best friend, and that was rough. As hard as it is right now for you, I know that that only way I survived was by doing my best to lean on people that wanted to be around me even with everything going on.
    January 30 10:27 AM
  • cryptside The truth was that even though my family went through the roughest time I have ever personally gone through, the only thing that healed me or my brother and mom was the time that it took for things to right themselves. When my mom gave up on her life, I did the best I could to take care of her still. But (as you well know), I couldn't help someone see a light that they refused to see. No matter what I did, how hard I tried, it didn't seem to matter. And even before that, I dealt with my father
    January 30 10:18 AM
  • cryptside You have to try to resolve some of the guilt and depression that you're feeling. I took the weight of the world on my shoulders, and I lived with that for a long time. I let myself believe that no matter what I do in my life, it will be overshadowed by my failure to keep my family whole. (cont.)
    January 30 10:15 AM
  • cryptside When you take on a certain responsibility with your family, and they allow you to do that, then you just feel like you are the one that fails them time after time. The truth is a little more harsh than that, even though it's harder to see through the veil of depression. As difficult as things are for you right now, (cont.)
    January 30 10:13 AM
  • cryptside No man, I totally get it. Crippling is the right word for depression, and it truly felt like no one understood. I spent a lot of my time escaping reality after my dad passed. I was so involved with my family, and it was easy to blame myself for when things went wrong because I was the one that took care of everything. (cont)
    January 30 10:12 AM
  • cryptside Hey buddy, doing well. Work is good, personal life is good. There was a time when all of that was a mess, so I can't complain at all. How are you doing, dude? Everything good?
    January 30 08:40 AM
  • Hyperion1001 its 100% totally cool if you dont like it, there is no stipulation that anyone has to like anything. i just like defending my point of view because it gives me a chance to really digest my own perspective, which is what i consider "fun" lol.
    January 30 08:32 AM
  • Hyperion1001 haha i didnt think you were attacking at all man. on the contrary, i love having discussions like that, not only because it helps strengthen my perspective because i have to really think about why i enjoy something, but in the end it might mean that someone else gets to enjoy something in the same way that i enjoy it, which is one of my favorite things. i tried my best to not come off as snarky too so it it did i apologize, but i much prefer an even discussion and discourse.
    January 30 08:30 AM
  • NorthernSkylark i've only heard those two and swoon and it was alright. but steve mcqueen is where it's at, so no shame in only having heard that one :]
    January 28 12:01 PM
  • NorthernSkylark yes, prefab sprout is so cool. have you heard their new album, it had some cool tunes too!
    January 28 11:51 AM
  • Mongi123 I always see people saying "omg best album ever written!" and crap like that and I'm just like "What how?" lol
    January 28 11:43 AM
  • Mongi123 And idk man Aeroplane isn't bad but I just don't get it. The lyrics are superb and everything but the vocals are bad and the music isn't anything that interesting to me haha
    January 28 11:38 AM
  • Mongi123 Ahh ok you only have DE rated so just wondering. WP is ****ing amazing and the one after DE is Koi No Yokan.
    January 28 11:37 AM
  • Mongi123 Also you ever listen to White Pony? Deftones?
    January 28 11:33 AM
  • Mongi123 Yea there's certain albums I'd like to go back to now too since my opinion always changes as well. That's the beauty of music. Sadly though my opinion of In The Aeroplane Over The Sea hasn't changed after countless listens haha
    January 28 11:26 AM
  • Mongi123 Glad you came around to loving Judgment dude!
    January 28 11:13 AM
  • Mongi123 I plan to man she's so amazing
    January 28 10:51 AM
  • Mongi123 Liking those Bjork ratings bud. I've gotta hear more of her work I've only heard Homogenic and Vespertine.
    January 26 12:25 PM
  • Deviant. A little drop in price will net you these bad boys: and they're absurdly underpriced. Or for a cool $100 more than you're thinking you could net yourself some Sony Prestige's, which I've heard good things about. At the moment I'm rocking these: but without bluetooth
    January 26 04:48 AM
  • Deviant. A mate of mine has those headphones and they're pretty good, though a little bit overpriced. I always feel like you never get the best clarity of sound with noise cancelling headphones, it's like they're sacrificing fidelity by limiting its output spectrum. Which is odd, because they're designed with DJ'ing in mind
    January 26 04:46 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot hey dude hmu later
    January 24 03:39 PM
  • Rowan5215 Sup Gyro. I read your list a while back and it was incredibly moving but I didn't have any money to donate at the time. Now I do so if the option's still there I'd love to donate some of what I have. Also since I'm leaving sputnik, hit me up with your fb profile if you like, I wouldn't mind chatting with you in the future. Peace man
    January 15 03:02 AM
  • cryptside Hell yeah man, that was an album that I discovered recently and fell in love with.
    January 14 06:40 PM
  • Hovse sup beautiful
    January 13 10:04 PM
  • cryptside Hey man, what's up? How are things?
    January 9 07:18 PM
  • Arcade i've heard 'The Party Line' and 'Nobody's Empire' and they were both fairly average. i guess that they're not the same band they once were but the new stuff is starting to sound like Dear Catastrophe Waitress castoffs. I'm seeing them live in a month so I'll give the album a chance but hopes aren't high :/
    January 6 08:32 PM
  • Mongi123 Same here man it's always changing. And Thin Air as well as A Simple Mistake and Hindsight are amazing. On the surface Judgement may not seem like much but if you listen harder, it's depression in a nutshell. I've never heard another album that portrayed it more realistically.
    January 6 12:28 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot ayy
    January 6 12:10 PM
  • Arcade it's a relief to hear man :) you keen for the new Belle
    January 5 07:45 AM
  • Mongi123 Nice WHBWH rating. Definitely the perfect album for you right now. I personally prefer Judgement though.
    January 4 10:00 PM
  • ComeToDaddy hey Gyro, it's been on the backburner for a long time but I finally got around to that Samurai Champloo - Departure review that we talked about a couple of months back, would love if you'd swing by and give some feedback. Hope everything's well on your end
    January 1 04:17 AM
  • Jacquibim Yeah, had a good Christmas, lots of running around but I enjoyed myself
    December 31 07:23 AM
  • Arcade probs the thousandth dude to ask, but how you been holding up?
    December 30 08:30 AM
  • Jacquibim I see you've been posting a tad more, hope everything's going alright on your end :)
    December 29 04:17 AM
  • Mongi123 Haha ok I'll check them later
    December 28 12:14 PM
  • Mongi123 Nah not at all dude haha enjoy then you love anything else in my list of 5s then hit me up I'm always down to talk about them!
    December 28 12:10 PM
  • Mongi123 So are you just going through my 5s or something? haha
    December 28 12:05 PM
  • Mongi123 It's not even that it's nostalgic for me. It just accomplishes what it's supposed to do with substance and intelligence: View drug addiction from all sides of it. The user, the drug itself, family and the judgement side of it like The Outsider.
    December 28 12:04 PM
  • Mongi123 Yo enjoy the ****ing journey dude it's nearly as good as TDDB for me. Also nice rating for 13th Step. Yet another album i think is a masterpiece.
    December 28 11:56 AM
  • Mongi123 Well Jane doe is awesome haha but Alcest is so underrated omg
    December 28 11:49 AM
  • Mongi123 Cool man yea Ecallies is thoroughly amazing it's kinda a shame people don't really wanna talk about Alcest on here. I wanna listen to his debut today actually still haven't heard it.
    December 28 11:42 AM
  • Mongi123 Oh you don't have them rated so just asking. I think it's really good but doesn't beat Ecallies. One of my fav albums of all time. What you think of Voyages? The first two tracks on it are perfect.
    December 28 11:36 AM
  • Mongi123 Yo you ever jam Alcest?
    December 28 11:33 AM
  • RadicalEd I' happy to hear that, really needs some love. I wonder if I ever will hear it in one session =D. Cheer's
    December 27 07:35 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot good man, message me
    December 26 10:59 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot sup man, have a good xmas?
    December 26 10:19 PM
  • Rowan5215 Honestly of all bands, Hammock are the ones to have that kind of effect. Few bands make music as stunningly beautiful as they do and yes the title track especially is a masterpiece. Nothing to be embarrassed by! And likewise I listened to Oblivion Hymns, I'd have to say it's probably my least favourite of their LPs but when you're talking about Hammock that's still some fantastic music. It just seemed a little bit... dry, compared to the others. But I Could Hear the Water is an all-time greatest
    December 23 07:22 PM
  • Rowan5215 also I'm listening to Oblivion Hymns later today
    December 20 11:06 PM
  • Rowan5215 yo man I can't remember whether you said you'd heard Maybe They Will Sing For Us by Hammock yet or not, but I'm listening to it now and realising it really is an overlooked black sheep in their discography. It's so much calmer than Kenotic, Raising Your Voice or Departure Songs yet somehow more meaty and fulfilling than the Sleepover Series. The closest it's to is Chasing after Shadows but they're still very different beasts, anyway I definitely recommend a listen. Title track is immense
    December 20 11:05 PM
  • Mongi123 Will do man! Just requested you.
    December 18 05:35 PM
  • Mongi123 I'm sorry to hear that man. You can't have an expectation to move so quickly though. You had so many losses so it'll take time. And sorry to be nosy haha but I've been around people in pain and I honestly can't bare to have anyone around me in pain. My mom had a surgery to correct a horrible condition, though oddly enough not life threatening, that made her life a living hell and she'll never fully recover from the surgery. So yea seeing or eating about people in pain just makes me wanna help.
    December 18 05:26 PM
  • Mongi123 Oh sweet. Yea just wondering cause my rev of that was basically my review like that but kinda in disguise. It let me know that there was always a light atb the end of the tunnel despite how terrible things can get. How's it going?
    December 18 05:13 PM
  • Mongi123 Hey dude, was reading through the number of horridly ignorant posts on Trebs Hotelier review lol and I was just wondering: Have you ever listened to Judgement by Anathema?
    December 18 05:06 PM
  • VheissuCrisis Supposed to read - work and voluntary life providing emotional support to people, and from my experience people are rarely as strong as you seem to be, you should be proud of yourself man. Stick to those who will support you, and never be afraid to reach out - you've already realised the importance of that one though.
    December 15 08:01 AM
  • Rowan5215 Will definitely let you know what I think about it
    December 15 02:31 AM
  • VheissuCrisis Hi Matt. I've no idea how the list you made passed me by, but I want to echo the sentiments of those that have already sent you supportive messages. I spend much of my life (work
    December 12 03:40 PM
  • CrimsonFloyd I wouldn't expect you to just stop thinking about your past and what you could have done differently, but regret and guilt may be exactly the reason your mother chose to act how she did, and was a major issue for me. I felt guilty, erased the guilt temporarily with dope and then had more guilt to deal with afterwards. All I'm saying is, you need to take steps out of that frame of mind or you might find yourself feeling like s*** the same way you do now decades away.
    December 5 09:30 PM
  • SowingSeason I do use facebook but I keep it well hidden from most people on this site. I will hit you up with a request I just ask that you don't go telling everyone who I am. I'm kind of protective/weird like that. But yeah man I wouldn't expect it to get easy quickly. It will never be "easy." But in time you'll become more self-sufficient as a result, which is something that most people with a cushioned upbringing struggle with. But yeah emotionally it hurts to lose parents, whether you're 16 or 60.
    December 4 12:52 PM
  • SowingSeason I'm glad this community has had such a positive impact, I only hope that aspects closer to your real life start to take shape. In any regard, please feel free to message me at any time. You're not alone and I think I speak for every user when I say that we'd do everything within our limited reach to help you. Just keep your head up, the best thing you can do is push forward, even if it isn't remotely bearable. At some point, even if it is years from now, things will get better.
    December 4 12:43 PM
  • SowingSeason Your situation comes to mind every single time I visit this site, sometimes when I'm nowhere near the internet as well. I can't begin to imagine what you're going through, but I'm keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. Just try to remember that in the end everything eventually does work out, even if the road to that point is sheer hell. Never give up, and just continue to utilize whatever support systems you have going on. You're a good guy and I wish you better luck henceforth.
    December 4 12:09 PM
  • CrimsonFloyd Yeah, that drug ****ed my life man, I count my blessings everyday that I am off of that s***. Took many different outlets to finally find an outing of that life. Don't blame yourself for how you dealt with her, no one should have to deal with an addict of that degree. Look at everything you did do, not what you didn't do. Considering different outcomes based on different choices you could have made won't make you feel better.
    November 30 06:03 PM
  • Emim Have we clashed? Lol I don't even remember; I've always respected you on some level. In any case, I've been through a similar situation, so my heart is close to this sort of tragedy.
    November 30 03:10 AM
  • IntriguingSergei You're more than welcome, I hope it helped :] Oh haha, who did you ask (I don't think it was the right person...)? I might reveal all later, but I'm going to have some more fun first.
    November 29 05:15 PM
  • IntriguingSergei Glad to see that someone's astute enough to notice I'm not a real user; I'm still undercover for now. If you want a clue, I donated on your page irl
    November 29 02:21 PM
  • Mongi123 Dude it's okay. If anyone read what you went through they'd understand, trust me. And for the record, don't turn to alcohol man. Self medicating will only make it worse in the long run. Try different things that'll clear your head, like a long hike, or therapy like I said. But I'm hungover myself right now, so that after affects of alc are s***ty lol
    November 29 08:23 AM
  • cryptside Hey Matt, it's no problem at all. I know how it feels to feel as though all is lost, and there was a point in time where I truly thought I wasn't going to make it out. It was only through leaning on some strong friends and my brother that I was able to understand that life still had something pure and beautiful for me to hold onto. Stay strong, but don't be afraid to reach out. I will be here to the best of my ability if things get dark.
    November 29 07:54 AM
  • Mongi123 So dude if you're getting to that level, I really recommend trying therapy. Believe me, it can't hurt because i partake in it myself. And it's also not a sign of weakness asking for help. It's a good thing.
    November 29 12:56 AM
  • Mongi123 Hey dude I just wanted to say to you directly that I hope you're doing alright. I read that list and though my loss wasn't truly the magnitude of yours, I could help but relate. If you ever wanna talk I'm always around.
    November 17 09:44 AM
  • Jacquibim I just saw your list and I actually got a little bit choked up, really hope everything begins to work out for you soon
    November 17 04:33 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges A 5 for Damien Rice? Damn.
    November 10 06:00 PM
  • Futures man i am so sorry to hear that. that must be the worst feeling in the world. hope you are doing alright man.
    November 10 04:48 PM
  • Futures was going to rec you the new damien rice album but you already 4.5d it! very nice. its definitely one of the best albums i have heard in a long time.
    November 7 04:20 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot I guess scope my latest review if you want, though I'd recommend Willpower pretty highly
    October 12 10:58 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot ever hear of Today is the Day? Pretty dope 'noisecore' group (might not be your kinda thing though, idk)
    October 12 10:56 AM
  • Hyperion1001 ken russell is a forgotten auteur imo. his later stuff gets weirder than that but i like most of it. his other classic is The Devils but there exists no known uncut copy other than a spliced together bootleg of bad quality stuff, which sucks because its a classic.
    October 10 02:06 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot well, I suppose you could still go with that Nujabes review
    October 9 01:03 PM
  • scottpilgrim10 Sowing showed some interest in it, so if he listened to it/reviewed it. It would probably at least get enough ratings to chart. But that seems very unlikely. What are the other under appreciated albums from this year? One that I love and only has 4 ratings is Meshes of Voice by Jenny Hval and Susanna.
    October 7 02:20 AM
  • scottpilgrim10 Muna is fantastic, I'm glad you checked the album out. I might prefer This Right Here to any Swell Season material. And thanks, it's definitely my favorite review so far.
    October 6 01:12 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Oh. Haha, I can see why.

  • trackbytrackreviews You're not the first one that hast told me that, actually. I just don't find any album yet interesting enought to review, and the ones I do, have like 2 pages of them.
    October 4 05:36 PM
  • Futures you're like my favorite user now tbh
    October 4 03:32 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot I'm just laughing at my typo "if you're caught up with your IRL business" lmao wow that's actually pretty bad, changes the entire dynamic
    October 4 01:51 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot caught up in*
    October 4 01:43 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot oh no prob if you're caught up with your IRL business, I won't submit until tomorrow evening probably, but many thanks dude. you're singlehandedly the biggest help I've had on my reviews
    October 4 01:32 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot hmmm never really got into the Knife but I'll give it a whirl one day. did you end up peeking my review I sent? I mean, you said there were no obvious mistakes, but do you think it's good to go?
    October 4 01:24 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot yeah. I like that it requires that certain 'mood' though. a lot of people were disappointed with it, but I like how it can be a 'go-to' album for that specific moment you might need it, if only rarely
    October 4 01:20 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot did you end up digging their newest?
    October 4 12:57 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot yeah dude, but I have a hard on for good neoclassical ambient s*** that gives me feeeeelings, so
    October 4 12:52 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot cheers. pretty meh review, but I'm going stir crazy waiting for the Winged Victory - Atomos release date to poke its head around the corner so I can submit =/
    October 4 12:32 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Is she ok?
    October 4 09:25 AM

    October 2 10:08 PM
  • Futures dude that's awesome. i've been on a huge oasis kick lately. one of my favorite bands. you a fan of any of their other albums? some of them get massive hate pretty much just because they're not morning glory haha. never jammed u2 might have to give them a go if you rec them.
    October 2 03:16 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Glad to hear it, man! I just wish you still had that contributor tag under your name.
    October 2 11:27 AM
  • Arcade no problem, i don't mind if you add critique to the existing comments but if you feel like they're too harsh or what not, just email them to songdownloader (dot) 100 @ (without the spaces obv, and yes, unfortunately that is a real email address). I have another review in the pipeline I wouldn't mind giving to you to read through first if you don't mind, just so there's not as many issues when it's posted
    October 2 02:43 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges Hey dude, did you ever work out that whole reinstatement of your position thing with Jom? Just curious.
    October 1 04:36 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot I actually messaged your FB, though idk if you have messages from non contacts disabled
    September 29 12:27 PM
  • Futures man i really really like it. these nights were ours holy s***. i'm starting to notice how similar our tastes are like damn haha!
    September 29 12:17 PM
  • Arcade cheers mahbah
    September 29 10:00 AM
  • Arcade hey could you give me some tips on my Gerard Way review? Would be very helpful =)
    September 29 06:37 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Yeah man, though I barely use it tbh. I kinda prefer to keep my personal life separate from forum life, if that makes sense
    September 28 10:29 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot You're one of the best writers here so you should be a shoe in. I'll probably apply come February and cross my fingers
    September 28 10:18 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Probably my favourite Nujabes (I have a tattoo of it ffs, lol). Right on man. If you don't mind my asking.. why aren't you a contrib?
    September 28 10:13 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Damn dude, sorry to hear it
    September 28 10:07 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot I heard you plan on getting back into reviewing a bit... any particular album you're working on?
    September 28 10:01 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot do you think using a lot of prepositions (be, is, can..) is something that needs to be remedied, and if so... how?
    September 28 09:48 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot hey man do you have a moment?
    September 28 09:42 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot What are your thoughts on requesting features? Yay/nay?
    September 27 12:32 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot yo man can I message you on last fm?
    September 27 10:45 AM
  • LordePots haha well im glad u feel my pain on that one its one of my many big pet peeves
    September 26 09:36 PM
  • LordePots use the terrible argument of "thats the point" because it never is haha.
    September 26 09:27 PM
  • LordePots haha i know dude its just terrible! actually tho, i have ONE real life friend who really loves trout mask and i remember discussing why i hate that album and i brought up that point because so many people have used that terrible rationalization on me and he was like "wtf dude its not supposed to be intentionally s***ty at all!" and he began to describe what he loved about it and what he thought its artistic merits were. respect to him for that. you can defend anything without having to
    September 26 09:26 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot S'all good man, any tips for my Hammock review? I definitely hyped it a little, but do you think it turned out alright?
    September 22 07:17 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot hey man I sent you an email
    September 21 01:13 PM
  • motopitchman Explosive, I removed some of the more negative comments. Basically he was just being a dick to everyone. I don't see how that's worth praise.
    September 18 06:51 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges "i'm objectively right though. bwp is just not great. anyone who disagrees is wrong" Goddammit, Matt, I love you.
    September 18 05:58 AM
  • motopitchman Argumentation is only good if it's productive, you were not being productive, you were being unnecessarily rude, so I removed your comments.
    September 18 05:10 AM
  • motopitchman Look, I have no problem with you sharing your opinion and even discussing dissenting opinions. I do have a problem with you being an immature entitled sounding child who is telling people to leave threads because they're wrong in your mind. You said that you had a right to free speech, do you also have the right to infringe on other people's by telling them to leave? You are a hypocrit, I hope you realize this soon.
    September 18 05:09 AM
  • Arcade I'm a complete Dropbox retard lol so soz can't haha. It's all over the place though so shouldn't be too hard to get a link
    September 18 02:51 AM
  • Arcade Syro is really great, it doesn't really sound like anything he's done before but if I had to compare it to anything I'd say it's like SAW with more pop and RnB textures
    September 18 02:45 AM
  • Fieryfenderz I've only watched the show, and am slowly making my way through the books, so all I know is that she gave off that impression for the first few seasons, but is now using that to her advantage. She can manipulate people much easier when they think she knows nothing. Like she now has Baelish pretty much wrapped around her finger. And having Baelish is having a good bit of power.
    September 16 03:35 PM
  • Fieryfenderz 1. She's like my girl crush haha.2. I love her character arc. She's gone from puppet of pretty much everyone to taking control of her life and playing the game better than most.3. She's like my girl crush
    September 16 11:32 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot cool, probably more efficient than begging you to look at them when they're already posted I s'pose. thanks man, will do
    September 15 07:04 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot ok. for example, would you say my Morning Effort review is decent in that sense?
    September 15 06:58 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Let's play 20 questions :/ what are your general thoughts on personal-ish reviews? Dos, Don'ts, yays, nays?
    September 15 05:22 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot yeah lemme know if you sort the band name is/are thing out. I've never really come across anything definitive tbh so I just went with what made sense to me and stuck with it, but who knows
    September 14 06:02 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot yeah I need to slow down so I can write reviews that are actually good lol. I responded to a couple of your points, lemme know if I'm still outta whack
    September 14 05:26 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot lol, in all seriousness it's no biggie, but I definitely like your input man. I'll take whatever I can syphon from you
    September 14 04:56 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot :)
    September 14 04:28 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot yo man, definitely curious what your thoughts are on my newest... only if you aren't busy
    September 9 07:33 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Ah. Well, thanks. It seems like the main problem most people have with the rev is the first paragraph, so I'll change that around when I get the chance .
    September 8 06:19 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot are you a fan of musique concrete? If so, I highly recommend giving Lionel Marchetti a try..
    September 7 10:24 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Ah s***, your comment got cut off!
