Attention seeking.



Quite possibly. Or trying to raise the profile of his own entry?

First it was all that shit soul-jazz and African stuff he's constantly bleating about, then it was crap Mix Club discs that were the aural version of sleeping tablets, and now it's disrespectful comments towards chart-topping, award-winning 70s rock stars and their fans! The bastard's out of fucking control. He's bringing BCB to it's knees, and yet he's still allowed to post his poison here in the sanctified BCB Cup.

Won't somebody please think of the children and finally ban him?! :evil:


Damn straight! :twisted:

You know, I haven't told anybody this, but my wife and I decided to have our baby only as a means of keeping me busier around the house, thereby giving me a valid excuse for not spending as much time here, all as a means of not having to read any of that fucker's stuff.

Holy shit, that's why we had our baby too! The fucker is responsible for a goddamn population explosion!.

















Actually we had a child so I can give my records and CDs to somebody.

Nah, he's just an attention seeker, quite unlike the poster who is taking him to task for posting in a way he doesn't agree with, pointing out incorrect links he assumes the "afficianados" have missed and mithering about people mixing up the group Heart with the mainstays of the group Heart.

Self-awareness? What's that?

I had no idea that the situation was this dire. I believed that Michael McDonald’s poison had dissipated since his heydey of the 80s, but I see now I was wrong. I had dabbled with irony in my early 20s, but the way today’s youth immerse themselves in it is alarming to me. Michael McDonald saw this irony opening in what was once a pretty formidable fortress that blocked out his evil; saw it and pounced. The following story is not pleasant, but I think you’ll agree that due to current circumstances that I had no choice but to share it with the board.

During Spring Break 1986 my cousin Debbie came to visit, choosing to spend her week away from her small college in Iowa with us. I hadn’t known Debbie that well; she seemed a pleasant enough sort, but at least two times a day she would bust out her cassette of McDonald’s No Looking Back. Often times, after the track Yah Mo Be There played, she would immediately rewind it and play again. It seemed the overall temperature of the house would drop a degree or two after every playing of the cassette. By the end of the week, the house was freezing. It was April, we lived in the high desert of Southern California; we weren’t prepared.

We tried everything to raise the temperature, but to no avail. One day while shopping at Miller’s Outpost, I heard McDonald’s familiar melody come over the store’s system and again felt the chill. I consulted a DJ the next day. He explained that within McDonald’s vocals (even recorded) there are 23 pathogens that aggressively attack and consume soul agents that occur naturally in an ecosystem. He said the only thing to do was to quarantine the place and prescribed a steady diet of Ohio Players, the Meters, and Cameo (it was the 80s) to restore the tainted environment’s soul equilibrium.

Googa, I know dabbling in 80s soul can be fun. That slaphappy Seinfeldian bass mixed with those Casio keyboards, pulling out those record sleeves, looking at all that hair before that what-the-fuck-were-they-thinking moment of realization overtakes us, but Michael McDonald is a different manner all together. He is dangerous.

Update on my cousin Debbie. She lives in a gated community in Scottsdale, Arizona and works as a dental hygienist. Her favorite restaurant is Panda Express and the last time I spoke with her (in 2008) she said she loved this new band and thought I’d really dig them. I asked her what they were called and she replied, “Matchbox 20.” Truth be told, I think we lost Debbie a long time ago. I tell you this, Googa, because I care.

Thanks Snarfy. Why someone couldn't have made this obvious point at the beginning of the thread I don't know. Invective and hyperbole have always been part of the BCB cup.


I would also add I'd take Michael MacDonald over any number of tedious "keeping it real" rock bands espoused on here.

I'm not actually sure exactly what your problem is with me, but this is the latest in a long running series of sly digs at me, by your good self.

Care to elaborate?

I thought getting ones panties in a wad over some trivially contentious issue of song choice during the cup was pretty much de rigueur.

What next? Accusing someone of being intentionally obscure? Heaven forfend!

Marvellous.

I love you all.


By the way - I'm in a classroom with interactive whiteboards and (inadvertently) all of THIS suddenly came up on the big fuck-off board (I thought I'd blanked it) for the whole group to see. A few muttered questions in Czech, and me: 'get on with your work, please!'. Could have been worse, I suppose.

A while ago a colleague had his computer hooked up to the projector in front of his whole class of 13-year-olds, and accidentally clicked the Outlook tab at the bottom, to reveal an email I'd sent him simply saying "FUCK THIS".
