Bitter Recriminations 2011 - A New Dawn

Postby Butch Manly » 24 Jan 2011, 18:35

HOW THE HELL DID THAT PILE OF SHITE MANAGE TO BEAT YOUR LIST?

Angry? (You bet! :x )

You know the drill.



RULES:

1. Moan like fuck - this is
crucial.
2. Don't spare anyone's feelings but your own - fuck 'em. You don't even know them, anyway.
3. Be as petty and petulant as you were feeling at that point when you were dumped out of this stupid competition.
4. Slag off the pile of utter shite that somehow beat you and the morons that voted for it.
5. Generally act like a complete arse - you're good at it!
6. Apologise to no-one.
7. Good grace and being reasonable strictly forbidden.

Griff - shouldn't point 6 read 'Apologise to noone'? You know how touchy he gets about these things!

More like a little 'et', don't you think?

I get a lot of comments from people when I'm walking my dog, and one of the most popular ones is "Ooh, she looks like a giant polar bear!". I never say anything, but I always think, "Don't you mean she looks like a tiny polar bear?"

Um, okay.

No, "giant polar bear" is correct. Polar Bears are actually a species of rodent, and in terms of size, are similar to rabbits:

Fascinating!

This is her when she was a regular sized polar bear:

Right, I'm off to call the Guinness Book Of Records.

Those boots really compliment your complexion, Harvey. You should wear them more often.

I'm hoping this thread improves when people actually start getting dumped out of the Cup.

I think it's going to get ugly. There's been a lot of nasty comments directed toward the lists this year so far and I can only imagine how the BR will shape up. We're in for a mean-spirited Cup and that's even without andymacandy playing.

Really? I can't say I've seen anything that untoward. Can you give examples of what you mean?

Belle Lettre wrote:The comments are already of a preciosity to make one puke, I agree.


To be honest those people who have the balls to actually critically comment always put themselves on the line because there's always going to be someone who doesn't agree with those comments. It's easier to just type 'A & B' sure..but how interesting is it to read that? I think comments make the threads more interesting for everyone to read, whether you agree with what's been said or not.

So far I haven't made comments, just cast my votes. I think the good tracks speak for themselves, and the ones I don't know I just ignore, probably a mistake, but I know what I like.

It's impossible to listen to everything you don't know and youtube sampling will never give you a full appreciation, however you're really missing out if you just limit yourself in that way.
Still you're not the only one to think like that. But you should try sampling the odd thing -it might make for some eye-opening leads into different music.

Will do. I benefited from the youtube recommendations in the Shoegazer thread. :)
