keep dualing cats
i love them
People that deny it are wrong.
because people who have a different opinion to you are incorrect in life. Don't yo see?
I don't think Brainlove will appreciate being quoted without his approval.
he is a leniant master like that.
or is it like watching naked female oil wrestling? where it really doesn't matter who wins....
only without the females. or the oil. or the wrestling.
they are both naked though.
in my mind.
sometimes i'm with brainlove
other times with wrightylew.
being a yoof i should probably side with wrightylew.
its hard to decide
Brainlove IS Hogan to wrighty's Kurt Angle
^^ to ImageChange
i had to say it.
besides. no he's not. he's 27.
I always imagined that Brainlove would be handy at wrestling crocodiles and selling Fosters.
generic formula non?
Wrighty takes a band that brainlove likes. Slags them off unnecessarily. Evryone goes on Brainlove's side.
i don't get involved in these nonsense fights, even tho they are good clean fun
is never unnecessary, unless a member has recently died or something.
it's always unnecessary, unless it's necessary.
What do you think of them?
(I know you're going to answer with "They are not very good." or something now)
But still, yeah.
because i saw them live and they made me want to throw things at them. you haven't heard anything by this robochrist act.
i just think the general ethos should be towards constructive criticism if you've heard them, or no comment if you haven't.
this has a giant 'unless they come across as arrogant cunts and / or you resent having paid money to see a bill of which they were a part' caveat.
slagging for the sake of it (as wrighty)does is totally unnecessary, as it just breeds discontent and annoys people.
Voicing negative opinions, but still constructive ones ('i dont like this band because... i dont like the drumming style' or whatever) IS necessary though
Hulk Hogan giving Crocs the Leg Drop would be aceness. ALl Hulk Hogan films are legendary. FACT
they're generally both right
that if they ever met it would be like a particularly violent scene from Jerry Springer.
But in reality it'd probably just be really uncomfortable
I don't think he really has that much to say to be honest, and yet he creates a loud, vitriolic anti-me racket from time to time.
Maybe it's an attention thing.
It is just banter though really. on both sides.
It's probably a good sign that he's prepared to criticise your music. Must mean he takes it seriously.
And putting your music out for people to listen to, you have to expect this kind of thing. I'm sure the Zutons dont like what's been written about them on here, and I'm sure Ricky Wilson of Kaiser Chiefs would be justified in being pissed off at a lot of the stuff you've said about him.
as they count their piles of gold
my point wasnt anything to do with the amount of money they make. If you want to talk about eslling out, it can apply to pretty much everyone. You could say that whatever wage Crablin and Sean pay themselves, however meagre, is making money out of music, so selling out. I probably wouldnt say that, because it's a stupid concept.
My point was that if it's okay for us to slag off bands that put their music out for people to listen to, as Brainlove does with Kaiser Chiefs, Crablin did with the Zutons, then surely it's okay for Wrightylew to do the same about Brainlove's.
Admittedly sometimes he takes it too far and it gets personal. But I dont see why personal insults against bigger indie pop stars, who could potentially read what is said here, are any different.
He just goes on a bit too much, and gets personal as you say, and doesn't give fair critique I think that's the issue. But yes, the same argument could be put about a lot of the bands that get slated on here...
i think we pretty much agree.
I'd much prefer it if these things didnt get so personal. I try not to do that.
But I know there's a school of thought that would say that's a bit boring. It's difficult. Depends how you take it really. If you treat it as a game, like Wrighty and Brainlove seem to, then i guess it's fair enough.
ho is portey loo?
ho is joan bran loaf?
where does Brianlove get his fitted shirts?
Bet Wrightylew doesn't dress as well. So I go with Brainlove on all future arguments. No matter what is said.
Until he tells me where he buys his shirts.
Green squares on white.
It is way to short for me in the arm but very skinny fitting so it looks like a 3/4 length arm shirt - perfect for summer.
From the best 2nd hand clothes shop in North London...
... but which one could it be?
i like that one
thats my sisters street.
Isn't it? That's a good one.
there. never even seen it!
Skinny shirts have short arms. Ridiculous.
they're 80's kids ones
I'm not telling you where I get my shirts. It's no good begging! I won't budge on this one.
'they bore me to tears' are foolish.
As soon as you see an argument starting, click back and look at something else. No one's forcing you to scroll through it all, you idiots.
Image Change is right also. If this was The Zutons I was laughing at for wearing such ridiculous clothes, you'd be licking my rectum.
So basically. Shut up. Because you're all wrong.
