  • ExplosiveOranges AND YES, I'M SMARTER THAN YOU!
    July 18 10:23 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Also just noticed that your forum title is "Bastard from a basket". All I can say to that is if you have a milkshake, and I have a milkshake, and I have a straw. There it is, that's a straw, you see? Watch it. Now, my straw reaches acroooooooss the room and starts to drink your milkshake.

  • ExplosiveOranges This is a bit random, but dude, your avatar is great. "I have a competition in me."

  • Feather Hmmm Interesting. I've never really considered but I've been finding myself more and more active.
    July 15 11:33 PM
  • Feather Nice I was unaware. Maybe if I actually start reviewing I'd have a shot at that then. Thanks.
    July 15 06:05 PM
  • Feather Is one review a month really enought to become "Contributor"? Just curious. I've been on the sight for years (I've had a few different accounts) and I always thought that requirement was higher.

  • Deviant. I've already added it to the database so that's covered. I get that the stream isn't the most official thing in the world, but every news site is linking to it. Couple that with the unique situation this album is in and I'd say go for it. No one can prove that you didn't receive a copy after donating to the kickstarter campaign ;)
    June 17 11:57 PM
  • Hyperion1001 its streaming so that anyone has access so im fairly certain its fair game as far as reviewing goes. if you want official confirmation though ask jom or deviant.

  • SeaAnemone thx
    May 18 04:02 PM
  • BigPleb She loves you dude :]
    May 11 06:09 AM
  • Jom Not a worry -- it's not like we're getting paid. Real life trumps Internet life.

  • SadAndHolyGlow It is so beautiful. And yeah, "Lost In Translation" is probably in my top ten.
    March 3 01:43 PM
  • SadAndHolyGlow Dude. Your profile pic is gorgeous. A painted still from "Lost In Translation," I presume.
    March 3 01:20 AM
  • SowingSeason Yeah I still remember my friend had it on a blank CD and didn't know what it was called so I had to google the lyrics. Was hooked on pretty much everything of his since then.

  • Lucid thanks! you too :
    February 16 06:07 PM
  • NocteDominum D you have fb?? https://www.facebook.com/robert.garland.16
    February 15 08:01 PM
  • NocteDominum Yep I'll throw to you over Facebook in about 15min, currently out and about.

    February 15 05:25 PM
  • NocteDominum Found something for you, hopefully it won't be too far out of the ordinary. http://whenicarusfalls.bandcamp.com/Let me know if you're interested, I have a d/l promo if you're interested.
    February 15 06:17 AM
  • klap of course man. glad it worked out and looking forward to reading more of your stuff
    February 14 05:24 PM
  • NocteDominum Awesome, you give me something to review and I'll return the favour!
    February 14 08:08 AM
  • NocteDominum I don't think there's many guys who could match my reach through the genre. Although I'd like to dabble more outside the genre, - maybe we could do a swap in reviews. Help stretch our writing a bit?
    February 14 08:05 AM
  • NocteDominum Yeah I was reading just now, short and sweet - maybe you should try some m/
    February 14 07:57 AM
  • NocteDominum I'll make a point of catching up on your reviews, I honestly think I have missed them all. Whoops, soon to be fixed
    February 14 07:27 AM
  • NocteDominum Done and done, congrats on the promotion again from me too champ. If you need anything you know where to find me. : )
    February 14 07:11 AM
  • Trebor. I love them all
    February 14 02:32 AM
  • Trebor. Blade Runner, Reservoir Dogs, and Royal Tenenbaums
    February 14 02:26 AM
  • Trebor. both are in my top 5
    February 14 02:21 AM
  • Trebor. you like movies that are good
    February 14 01:59 AM
  • Brostep Haha that'll be fun. I think it's good that you got promoted since the "CONTRIBUTOR" tag gives your comments an air of legitimacy that new reviewers might not respect otherwise, so keep it up and I look forward to seeing you around!
    February 13 07:37 AM
  • Gyromania sweet avatar! congrats on the promotion
    February 11 11:21 PM
  • Atari haha i forgot about that. Just review whatever your heart desires man!
    February 11 05:41 PM
  • Atari gratz dude.
    February 11 05:30 PM
  • Gyromania thanks man. i would if i had more reviews under my belt. i feel like it'd be insulting or something to vie for a staff position when i wrote like 2 reviews last year lol. appreciate the support though =]
    January 25 05:51 PM
  • Atari Haha sounds good man. Best of luck to you sir! you're an excellent writer
    January 25 05:40 PM
  • SadAndHolyGlow Agreed. I got it on cassette :P Even though the songs were all jumbled, I still think that it's an awesome collectible for the future.
    November 20 07:31 PM
  • SadAndHolyGlow Nice to see another rating on Rebuker's EP! Let me guess... You picked it up at The Chariot's show?
    November 20 04:10 PM
  • Atari there's at least a dozen songs i like better than that one lol but that being said - almost all their songs are great. Definitely one of my all-time favorite bands. You should check them out more pretty sure all their albums have streams on youtube
    October 24 05:25 PM
  • Atari Right on!
    October 24 05:16 PM
  • Atari I know you mostly listen to modern music but seeing that you like folk you should check out simon and garfunkel.
    October 24 05:04 PM
  • larrytheslug have you at least heard "welcome home" by rad face? it's a very well known song, but jams hard! im liking what i hear from the branches.
    October 24 12:39 AM
  • FiveLeavesLeft I haven't gotten anything published yet, but I'll be working on that
    October 18 03:29 PM
  • FiveLeavesLeft I write a lot of stuff in gangster (Godfather, Pulp Fiction, etc.), drama, and psychological thriller genres. I'm sorta mixing Stanley Kubrick and Quentin Tarantino with my writing, even with how weird that combination sounds :P
    October 18 03:29 PM
  • Atari pop punk = whiny vocals : 3 I grew up on the stuff though so i'll always have a soft spot for it prolly
    October 10 03:57 PM
  • Atari you might like new found glory - sticks and stones if you've never heard it. However, you might find the vocals to be too whiny lol
    October 10 03:12 PM
  • Atari who ADTR? but you like blink 182 and sum 41 so it's cool : )
    October 10 02:49 PM
  • Atari haha nah i kind of just gave up lol. I have failed you sir : / Wait, what are you doing listening to pop punk?!
    October 10 02:30 PM
  • Gyromania ha! i was wondering if you'd see that or not. i think she's pretty good looking too. not so much now, but back in her youth, definitely
    October 10 02:25 PM
  • klap and don't really follow up on them. having said that, i really dig the areas when you do go into a little detail, and your intro/conclusions are very sound. also, this is the perfect length for a review. i really enjoyed it and most of the below is just nitpicking
    September 29 12:15 PM
  • klap i'm not a huge fan of the chess analogy bc it seems like a stretch to me but it makes sense in this context and i like how you tie it back in w the "checkmate." at times this review gushes a little bit too much using words like "prowess," and a phrase like how you're explaining how the songs flow into each other is sort of a lame way to describe what you're getting at. also, you don't really describe the "brilliant lyricism" too much. as a whole, parts of the review state these big claims
    September 29 12:14 PM
  • klap for sure man, i'll read it over again. was great first time thru tho
    September 28 09:52 AM
  • Aids female artists, especially female pop artists, are always put under such heavy scrutiny. It actually really bugs me, but *oh well* that's the internet/our society for you. I re-rated it, 5/5. Seriously this album is god damn perfect. It's....it's glorious. Every track is a stunner imo. Review incoming (in the next few days).
    September 26 10:09 PM
  • XingKing I hope you watched the whole thing! James Franco is ****ing hilarious to watch whenever Jesse Eisenberg is speaking. You can just tell he is thinking about what a retard he is and his facial expressions are comedy gold
    September 26 12:53 AM
  • someguest Thank you. I think it's the best series I've seen so far in life.
    September 24 11:10 PM
  • Gyromania i go here: http://www.chess.com/ - if you make a profile, add me as a friend http://www.chess.com/members/view/MattF012
    September 24 08:49 PM
  • Gyromania aw! s'all good though - just looking for new chess enthusiasts to befriend :P i'll definitely check that album out, i actually liked the eps (listened to 'em both last night)
    September 24 08:05 PM
  • ashn0ted Understood. In a nutshell, it's a writing opportunity that I'd like to present to you owing to your clear ability. If you have Skype, my handle is ashley.collins649, we could IM there.
    September 24 04:09 PM
  • ashn0ted Sorta, call it a proposition, haha.
    September 24 02:13 PM
  • ashn0ted Hey man. Really like your writing style, could I get an email address at all so I can ask you something?
    September 24 01:01 PM
  • Atari haha i'm too old man. At this point writing is just something I really enjoy but if somebody ever wanted to pay me i wouldn't argue lol.
    September 23 05:56 PM
  • Atari that's sweet man. i always used to want to be a screen writer or a movie critic
    September 23 05:46 PM
  • Atari "a stylistic replacement for parantheses than anything". you stylish mofo ;) haha thanks for the response, that makes sense. Guess i'm gonna have to try it out in my future reviews. Also i second Gnarly's comment you should apply for contributor next time around
    September 23 05:32 PM
  • Atari yo i already asked omaha this but i'm sure i'll get a quicker response from you. In reviews when you do this -- (the double dashed lines) is that an alternative way of using parenthesis or a semicolon or what? prolly a dumb question i know but i've been curious about it : P
    September 23 05:22 PM
  • GnarlyShillelagh yeah absolutely that volcano choir review was one of the better reviews i've read in a while. you got talent bruh, just keep writing at a reasonable pace and you'll be a shoe in come applications
    September 12 01:17 AM
  • GnarlyShillelagh wtf dude you better apply for contrib this next round of applications
    September 6 01:43 PM
  • Atari haha you're one of the pickiest guys on sputnik prolly. Yeah i'll keep an eye out for something after 2000 : P
    August 30 07:19 PM
  • klap yo never read your stuff before but the volcano choir was ace keep it up
    August 23 03:08 AM
  • SowingSeason Glad you found it. Maybe I'll check it out sometime too.
    July 30 10:28 PM
  • Atari hope you're not in a rush i've been so busy lol i'll find something for you eventually
    July 29 06:02 PM
  • Atari How dare you!! Lmao of course dude ill see what else I can come up with.
    July 29 12:36 AM
  • Atari Well u should just give it a shot and if u don't like it ill find something else lol ;)
    July 27 05:50 PM
  • Atari U a fan of iron maiden, Judas Priest etc.? I can think of some metal albums that need reviewed just not metalcore.
    July 27 11:35 AM
  • Atari If u don't like it I can think of something else ;) they're not straight up pop punk though. I just can't think of any metalcore or post rock albums that need a review lol
    July 27 11:18 AM
  • Atari The hotel year - it never goes out. If u don't like it i can think of something else they're pop punk but kinda indie/emo too they remind me of piebald and maybe mewithoutyou a tiny bit
    July 27 12:56 AM
  • Atari What genre u want? I'm having trouble thinking of something lol
    July 26 05:50 PM
  • Atari I didn't forget about u I've just been busy lol ill assign u an album today!
    July 26 12:58 PM
  • Atari Cool just give me a bit to come up with an album ;)
    July 25 10:46 AM
  • Atari All the submissions are closed but I can look at your music taste and assign u a random album to review myself if u want?
    July 24 07:22 PM
  • SowingSeason Haha no it's Jesse Lacey from Brand New
    July 1 05:30 PM
  • SadAndHolyGlow Great ABR review.
    June 22 11:30 PM
  • PorkchopExpress Ha! Son of a bitch must pay. Just the best movie ever.
    January 27 09:32 PM
  • VlacDrac I think it's time we blow this scene. Get everybody and the stuff together.Okay three, two, one, lets jam!
