Sandwich boards for local merchants.
Big, long “Donald TRUMP” style neckties.
Dr. Seuss Hats
Lederhosen
“Napalm Death” t-shirts
Stilts.

Of course, Toto were accomplished musicians, who went on to play on Thriller after their best-selling Toto IV. 17 albums, 40 million units sold, can't all have been houseflies...

There are some very accomplished musicians who live up the block from me. I don’t like THEM either.

Things so bad that I would not wish them on TOTO (or the band up the block from me) even though I don’t like them:

A flesh eating virus.
“Montezuma’s Revenge”
A Buddy Holly/ Lynrd Skynrd type airplane disaster.
Throat cancer
An opening slot on a “monsters of Rock” type tour.

Fair enough. I’ll admit that I picked that one mainly because it’s fun to say.

To which I'd answer, "then don't click", but I won't, because your put-downs are too much fun to read!

The only active music thread on BCB is about fucking TOTO.
Drastic times require drastic measures.

you know, I've been meaning to talk to you about that. that is, unless you'd rather talk about TOTO of course.

I like it. It's a good board. first of all there are people over there who (for whatever reason) don't want to post over here. Now, my memory is not completely shot quite yet so I remember some of those people and it's nice seeing they are still around. However, there are posters I like over here who (for whatever reason) don't want to post over there. you see where I'm going with this?

there's another small matter that bears mentioning. there's an awful lot of talk over there about how much the people suck over here. well, in the immortal words of George Jones - I'm a people and I like the people over here.

I know complaining is the crickets and birdsong of an active forum but even though that board is more active in several ways - it is most active in this (bitching about this board. not entirely fair but look in your heart - there's something to it)

I guess I'm a lazy bastard. I just can't be assed to start threads most of the time. I'm like one of those little birds that eats out of the alligator's teeth - I have an appetite but I want somebody else to do most of the work. I don't really like the cups because I get bored fast and as soon as people start griping or I've seen too many matchups that perplex me - I'm out of there.

I think that's how a lot of people are with both boards right now. they'd love there to be active entertaining discussions but they've got a lot to do. this makes all the complaining a little easier to spot.
