  • amanwithahammer You're right that there's not that many actually, but there's more than one, Carnival and Funny Bunny. If they'd overdone it putting on multiple tracks from single albums I don't think it would've worked so well though, so I think it's just right the way it is. That's basically what I meant, that there's enough (I'm probably just happy cos those are my favourite pillows songs ever alongside Swanky Street also)

  • scottpilgrim10 Thanks dude, I've been jamming BTMI! a lot lately, I'm still listening to AMB and GBC. I can't quite wrap my ahead around SCRAMBLES and vacation but they still rule.
    September 3 10:40 PM
  • scottpilgrim10 You seem like a very level headed guy, so you're a great sputnik user. Also BTMI! and TWY rule!

  • BMDrummer nice soundoffs

  • NorthernSkylark that make him a sympathetic character and that's why most people will just sit back and enjoy his antics. You raise a very interesting question as well, how large of a role does our emotional investment in the character play in our overall assesment of a novel? i could go on, but i won't.
    August 19 07:46 PM
  • NorthernSkylark it's a very nice essay on Holden Caulfield as character dimsim, but don't rule the word search out just because he isn't conscious about a final goal as such. I consider Caulfield to be dreamer (and a rover boy), like when he goes on about how he wants to live in the forest/country in some cabin, even though it is perfectly clear that it will never happen. He needs something to distract him from the situation that he's in, so he builds a beautiful future for himself. Anyway, there plenty things

  • Butkuiss Yeah, Aus shipping is a killer and being a uni student sucks (financially). But ah well. C'est la vie.
    May 3 05:52 AM
  • Butkuiss No $ because I've spent it all on gear for the gig next week and no cassette player anyway. :(

  • Comatorium. The album was worth the wait and all the hype and disappointment with the delays.
    April 15 10:49 PM
  • Comatorium. I downloaded that s*** this morning at 1030am fifteen minutes after it leaked so i could play it on repeat at work, fool.
    April 15 05:06 PM
  • hogan900 Or.......I can pray to my golden kinsella statue that it is a new album.:D
    April 11 08:29 PM
  • hogan900 Way to crush my spirit, I'm actually rather curious about what the countdown is about then.
    April 10 09:58 AM
  • hogan900 Kinsella is a very talented man. There's a countdown for some American football secret, I'm kinda starting to believe it may be a new album or touring so that would be pretty damn sweet. And thanks for the compliments as well!
    April 9 05:44 PM
  • hogan900 I read a few of your recent reviews and may I say your doing a great job with them man. I can also see your into a lot of Kinsella stuff, you like Owen at all?
    April 8 09:37 PM
  • Atari the stream sounds great to me, but suit yourself : 3
    March 21 04:57 PM
  • Atari fireworks are streaming their new album in case you didn't know
    March 20 03:59 PM
  • Voltimand Thank you (a bit late) for the avatar compliment.
    February 9 06:57 PM
  • Rev i'm waiting until my copy comes in the mail, or at least until the SPF show

  • Iluvatar hey so what was it that dev said in the am! thread?
    January 14 11:23 AM
  • MosesMalone So is it stylistically anything like their old s***? I absolutely love Axl Rose and Eternal Cowboy and that's where I tend to draw the line with Against Me.
    January 13 01:28 PM
  • Athom I still don't find it to be an enjoyable listen, but I understand the recording now. It's an interesting record and is definitely worth a listen as far as music that eschews structure goes. I prefer Brotzmann's Machine Gun if I'm going for far left of center Free Jazz
    January 2 01:43 PM
  • demigod! you should write one of your signature beast sound offs for Music Has the Right to Chlidren. love reading them, you always hit the nail on the head.
    December 2 09:51 PM
  • Rev haha no worries dude. i'm just trying to obnoxiously push it onto everyone in hopes that I can crack the tip of the site user list lol. and i've been good, just busy as hell. the new banshee ep i was planning on putting out on new years probably won't come out until like march :///
    November 28 06:31 PM
  • Rev bro why wasn't spiral power on yr 2013 list????? jk bro how are you doing dude?
    November 28 11:52 AM
  • Gwyn. That's because it's actually not done, I'm still trying to find a way to really explain in a convincing way why I think that. Thanks man.
    November 16 03:39 AM
  • Gwyn. Thanks, man. Just for some feedback, mind reading what I have for the review I'm making so far? It is for J Dilla's 'Donuts', I don't write very often and I've been on a writer block for months but I really feel that album needs a better review, and a 5 one at that. http://jeromes-in-da-house.tumblr.com/post/67060101370/ignore-this-just-a-random-review-template
    November 15 10:12 AM
  • Gwyn. hey bruv, you mind telling me exactly how do you get your text to look separate when you quote? like in this review: http://www.sputnikmusic.com/review/57748/Bomb-the-Music-Industry!-Vacation/ for the "final minute" part. What coding is it, and all. Thanks.
    November 15 09:42 AM
  • FourthReich really love your death grips sound off. I am on my tenth listen and I still have no idea what to make of it. I want to love everything they do because I am such a fan(I am from their city) but I came to the realization when no love dropped that, that is impossible. I think this is overall a good record, there are certainly standouts, but the reason I love this group is because of the crazy word play to match the even crazier production. though I am finding gov plates lacks both.
    November 14 03:10 PM
  • EaglesBecomeVultures omg stfu
    November 6 05:55 PM
  • demigod! wow, beast soundoff for Goodbye Cool World. it's probably my favourite album by them as well; its energetic, sardonic and sarcastic tone pretty much define everything that I love about BTMI!, and the cohesiveness of that record is pretty unparalleled. it's a 30 minute high-velocity run through the mind of a man on the fringe of isolation-induced insanity.

  • Butkuiss Go to bed mang it's too late to be up I just finished a shift and I'm going to get like 4 hrs sleep before uni.

    August 15 11:27 AM
  • Gwyn. since it's been there for quite sometime I think it's worth pointing out that Nicki Minaj wasn't in "All of The Lights"
    July 27 06:48 PM
  • Athom I'll send you a message on FB about how the whole thing for Love American just died in a single show once I hop this bus to go to a bar downtown. Like there was a single instance where we just knew even though we never had discussed it.
    July 24 10:56 PM
  • Athom I've know the dudes in Letlive for almost a decade. They're sweethearts and deserve all the best but I don't really like that style of post-hardcore anymore. I can't even listen to Fake History because of it's so over produced (I have no interest in the new on so I havent heard it outside that one song they had a video for). I will say that at least homie learned how to sing. dude used to not even be able to hold a note on key back in the day.
    July 24 10:11 PM
  • Athom when it comes to how we looked at screamo and how a band like Alaska or My Iron Lung does. It was just really hard to relate because it used to be as much as a political statement as it was a personal one. but yeah, a lot of the newer bands basically look to stuff like Oceana, As Cities Burn, Oh Sleeper, Emery, Mae, and the rest of that whole Christian movement as their first real musical influence and that is a scene I mostly tried my hardest to avoid even in its heyday
    July 24 09:45 PM
  • Athom cont. This last tour I did really nailed that home to me. I got into more traditional emo/screamo about 10 years ago and a lot of friends of mine that I grew up in the music scene with are now in some bigger bands that were part of that last wave of bands that peaked in popularity over the last coupe years. Love American always got lumped in with the 18-22 year old up and comers crowd even though we're all in our mid/late 20's. There's a noticeable disconnect of politics, influence, and approach
    July 24 09:39 PM
  • Athom I really don't like a lot of the up and coming emo and screamo bands. It's not that I have anything against them or what they're doing it's just that they're influenced by things outside of the genre that I never got into because I sorta outgrew the popular post hardcore scene in about 2007 and that's what a lot of the new bands came into their own listening to in high school etc.
    July 24 09:33 PM
  • Athom They remind me of bands like Copeland and Mae, and basically sum up the pop-rock-ification of modern emo into nothing more than a jangly version of adult contemporary music.

    March 23 10:48 PM
  • SowingSeason would you mind writing a very brief (5-10 sentences) summary/soundoff for the song you chose for the sputnik playlist? i think the feature would look a lot better with writing. if so, please let me know and email it to sowingsputnik@gmail.com. thanks again for being a part of things!
    March 2 08:25 PM
  • Knott- Glad you like it! I think it looks so much better than the first issue, personally. And some of the writing is amazing. Share it? :D

  • Irving More interestingly, over half the Contrib list has been demoted to normal User status, and the Staff list is looking bizarrely fat. It's strange times indeed, but oh so exciting! If you're interested in promotion, the best advice I can give you is to write and write and write. Make sure your next work is always better than your last! You'll be noticed before long! =)
    October 28 01:43 PM
  • Irving Thanks man! And I honestly don't think there's a "proper" answer to your question - all of us were just promoted overnight! Usually there's an application session where you submit a writing sample, but I guess this year they decided to forgo it entirely lol (I'm confused too).
    October 28 01:42 PM
  • Comatorium. Ballad is worth watching as well. Im so happy i took those videos. i basically left from in front of the stage after Queen and filmed the rest.
    September 26 11:17 PM
  • Comatorium. It was something to behold for sure.
    September 26 11:16 PM
  • Comatorium. yes, it was perfect... http://www.youtube.com/user/WeeklyWars?feature=mhee#p/a/u/1/W_2cyUaKGvE I dont think I've ever yelled 1,2,1,2,3,4 louder in my life lol

    June 20 12:56 PM
  • Irving To answer your question on who does promotions (which you posted to my latest review), I think it's a combination of the Staff and the Mods. I'm not sure how much input mx has (especially considering one barely sees him on here these days).
    June 13 10:34 PM

    June 11 08:17 PM
