I sent a PM to Mike_Diver. He is not replying.
i read that as "just do like everyone else does"
me = fail
and i'm anyone's
don't hate me
Not enough to actually ask, apparently. But still. Wouldn't mind.
its because u would of given Born Ruffians a 10
I back it
if you send him an email (mike.diver@..) with examples of your work.
If you've messaged him today - he'll be at Barden's so I doubt he's read it yet :)
some (losers) have weekends
Stalky, stalky, stalk.
HE NEVER REPLIED!
tried to get work experience... was told it would be sorted about 3 times. nothing happened. so oh well
not particularly endearing though
but you know, there are a lot of people who write about music and being endearing will only get you so far
i think its probably just i have different tastes than the majority of people who write on here.
i don't agree with a lot of what they say but can still find the reviews entertaining. unless they're just trying WAY too hard, that's just embarrassing and boring.
just i think they can be a bit annoying.. and i dont agree with a lot of what they say
as long as people actually have an opinion on what they write, that's generally the most important thing i think? and debates and stuff, reviewers love that stuff
i just get a bit annoyed sometimes
lets all go off and live in a world where we can't contextualise music at all then.
In fact why stop there? Lets just put a stop to all debate and human knowledge whatsoever. No one is ever going to be right enough to satisfy codswallop, apparently, so whats even the point if we can't satisfy the expectations of our magnificent leader codswallop?
Might be good, might be bad. I don't really know. I mean, I know what I think - I don't like it. But that's just my opinion. It might be great. Who am I to say? No one. So just buy it and see what you think. Then I guess you can always take it back if you agree with me. Exchange it or something."
and having an opinion
Like I said, a review is of little worth if the reviewer doesn't have any conviction in his own opinion.
reviewers write based on what they think they should say, rather than giving it a fair listen. e.g. pidgeon detectives, yeah theyre shit, but they were never ever going to get a positive review
i just remembered them getting a 4 for a single. bad example
"because they are shit"?
i just dont really pay much attention to manyt reviews.
to say what you think you should say rather than what you actually think?
rather than slating a band because theyre not radiohead or fuck buttons
if you are reviewing something, you should give your opinion of it. not what you think your opinion should be.
There is no way you can possibly construe somebody saying what they *think* they should say as them being arrogant.
you can say what you beleive with out coming across as self important and arrogant.
and its certainly possible for someone who thinks they should slag off a certain band coming across as arrogant, or using an arrogant tone.
which you evidently often do.
theres a difference between having conviction, and being arrogant.
worked for me (y)
If these boards have taught me just one thing, it is that very few people can distinguish the difference between having an opinion (particularly a well-founded one with differs from the 'popular' opinion) and being arrogant.
just say it on the normal account, it's okay, it's just the internet
Funny how you don't take it seriously and yet keep coming back to waste your time after being banned.
who badly wants some internet attention. I'm sure having more posts makes you a better person, don't worry.
there's no way I'll ever be THAT bored.
Anyway i thought the whole reason people went on this site was to read about music?
Ok, the odd review might not be your cup of tea but please tell me that the whole point of DiS is about discussing music etc? (and I don't mean just on the boards)
reviews fron the DiS possy and the music board is wicked too.
You can review anything you want. You don't need to write for the site - you can upload a user review if you want.
and thats one of the great things about the site! Its interactive editorial and the words thats provoke discussion etc etc..
after that line in the intro to a P.O.D. song.
No, mine's Clarence.
Still Snoop Dogg and D-R-E (Guess who's back)
Still, still doing that shit, right?
Oh for sure, check me out
It's still Dre Day, A.K.
Before I chrome the lot, can't keep it home a lot
'cause when I frequent the spots that I'm known to rock
You hear the bass from the trunk when I'm on the block
Ladies, they pay homage, but haters say Dre fell off
How? My last album was "The Chronic"
They want to know if he still got it
They say rap's changed, they want to know how I feel about it
[Snoop - singing]
If you ain't up on pace
Dr. Dre is the name, I'm ahead of my game
Still, puffing my leafs, still with the beats
Still not loving police (Uh huh)
Still rock my khakis with a cuff and a crease
Still got love for the streets, repping 213
Still the beat bangs, still doing my thang
Since I left, ain't too much changed, still
I'm representing for them gangsters all across the world
Still hitting them corners in them low low's girl
Still taking my time to perfect the beat
And I still got love for the streets, it's the D-R-E [Repeat 2x]
Since the last time you heard from me I lost some friends
Well, hell, me and Snoop, we dipping again
Kept my ear to the streets, signed Eminem
He's triple platinum, doing 50 a week
Still, I stay close to the heat
And even when I was close to defeat, I rose to my feet
My life is like a soundtrack I wrote to the beat
Treat my rap like Cali weed, I smoke till I sleep
Wake up in the A.M., compose a beat
I bring the fire till you're soaking in your seat
It's not a fluke, it's been tried, I'm the troop
It's "Turn Out the Lights" from the World Class Wreckin' Cru
I'm still at it, After-mathematic
In the home of drivebys and ak-matics
Swap meets, sticky green, and bad traffic
I dip through then I get skin, D-R-E
It ain't nothing but more hot shit
Another classic CD for y'all to vibe with
Whether you're cooling on a corner with your fly bitch
Laid back in the shack, play this track
I'm representing for the gangsters all across the world
(Still hitting them corners in them low low's girl)
I'll break your neck, damn near put your face in your lap
Try to be the king but the ace is back
[Snoop - singing]
So if you ain't up on thangs
Dr. Dre be the name still running the game
Still got it wrapped like a mummy
Still ain't tripping, love to see young blacks get money
Spend time out the hood, take they moms out the hood
Hit my boys off with jobs, no more living hard
Barbeques every day, driving fancy cars
Still gonna' get mine regardless
Like that, right back up in ya
'95 plus four pennies
Add that shit up, D-R-E right back on top of thangs
Smoke some with your dog
No stress, no seeds, no stems, no sticks!
Some of that real sticky icky
A little weed, put it in the air
For you's a fool D.R.
