Post #17,000 get!

Well, I've got some writing to do - thankfully, I don't do stories for every single 1,000 point milestone, or I'd be snowed under today :P

Just passed 4,000 saves. Looks less impressive when it's surrounded by people posting 20,000+ stats.

Nope, you still need port 2 to beat Mantis.

How about Bahamut7? He handles the Character Battle polls very well. :P
Ah, of course! Well, we know who will handle the awards, if they ever happen.

And he gets my vote for "favourite Bahamut alt"!

Good. :) Toohot is a slacker in terms of blams so Bahamut7 is indeed my best alt.

Yeah, I can name Rocking All Over the World, Whatever You Want...Uhh, that's it.
In the army now is great as well.

Oh yeah, Rain is another one but only because Helloween covered them. I could probably name a few more songs of theirs but not right now.

Soldier didn't know anything about port 2.
Stupid soldier. The colonel didn't tell him?

No-one nominated Colonel for the Character Battle so he couldn't do a thing.

Indeed. It's just a warm-up to the big thing. Sometimes the crowd doesn't even know the band, which was my case in the Metallica concert. I had no idea what Hybria was about. =P

That is often the case I think. Although the bigger bands usually have more familiar names in the supporting act.

But U2 also had Arkansas 101 or something once. They weren't bad, but it was five years ago and I haven't heard anything of them ever since.

You should check out Pink Floyd - Shine On You Crazy Diamond then. It's a ~24 minute song divided in nine parts of which the first five are played at the beginning of their album* and the last four at the end. It's quite a relaxing and interesting song to listen to.
Hahahaha, I know that song! My dad has Wish You Were Here, we listen to it in his car every now and then. I'm a Pink Floyd fan, I don't know why I didn't mention them in the long songs thing.

Lol. Well I checked your favorites and Pink Floyd didn't seem to be in there so I just assumed you might not know about them. Or just don't like them of course, but in that case you would probably not know their songs that well.

Dogs isn't split, but it's a 17-minute epic song. Another brick in the wall has three parts, although they're split in the album. Pink Floyd is one of my favourite bands! =)

Yeah, but you could easily split up Dogs in two at that quiet barking point. And I love that song as well, it's probably one of my favorites. Well actually the entire Animals album might be among my favorite Pink Floyd stuff.

Another Brick in the Wall is indeed another one, although the parts are not that long. Another album that comes to mind is Ummagumma. I haven't listened to it all that much yet, but I believe there are many songs with many parts on it.

And of course there is Echoes. I guess Pink Floyd just really loved to split up their songs for some reason.

I love that track (those tracks), but they really do disagree with iTunes, since it's always on shuffle. I'd end up in the middle of the track, but listening to Absolute Classic rock in work does help this, as they put the radio edit of Shine on you Crazy Diamond at least once a week.

I believe they have actually brought out a 'single' of the song once. It's the entire 24 minutes in one track. So you might want to put that version on your iPod if you can find it.

Now that was a good idea, to raise the Blam limit on collabs. Of course it might be more effective if you couldn't add nine co-authors after passing judgment to dance around the rule.

Heh, indeed. I remember that Afro_Stud did that after he submitted his old Pokemon flashes. And yeah, that had also been suggested at the time, but the staff didn't take that idea.

Yeah, yesterday was a hard day for blams, I got only 9 blams + 3 flagged ones. Soon my saves count will match my blams one. =/

Ah, right. At first, I thought about football, but there were league games that day, so... Plus, Wales only have Ryan Giggs as player, I think. :P
Yeah, but we've got to play the Welsh in the football to qualify for the European Championships, which should be fun.

Ah, but we all know who wins all the time (unless it's a HUGE upset!).

Speaking of which, I'll make the FIFA World Cup thread. But should I make it now or wait a little more, closer to the first game date?

No, save that wit for the lock messages, where the enjoyment is public. ;)
And that's what causes the most butthurt, sometimes.

But it also draws a fan base. "Look, it's Coop, that mod with cool and witty lock messages!"

It got a bit better in recent years, but it's still kind of rare that a game is released uncut in Germany. Ah well, since importing is much cheaper plus my english skills are quite good I don't mind too much.

Hahahha, yes. I try to avoid subtitles, just to check if I can understand everything. I try that with musics sometimes. But I end up giving up. =(

Also, it's weird that only their drummer remains from their original line-up. =P
Yeah, that's really weird. ^^
Even weirder than his glasses he always wears. XD

Ah, the blue glasses? They actually look good on him. It's like Bono Vox, you wouldn't recognise him without glasses.

That is often the case I think. Although the bigger bands usually have more familiar names in the supporting act.

Either that or bands with a "rising" success. That would help the band promote themselves, opening for a famous band.

Hahahaha, I know that song! My dad has Wish You Were Here, we listen to it in his car every now and then. I'm a Pink Floyd fan, I don't know why I didn't mention them in the long songs thing.

Heh, I really need to organize my favourites. =P

But I really like Pink Floyd. I remember listening to them since I was 6 years old. My dad used to play "Animals" all the time in his car, and I liked them since the beginning!

Dogs isn't split, but it's a 17-minute epic song. Another brick in the wall has three parts, although they're split in the album. Pink Floyd is one of my favourite bands! =)
Yeah, but you could easily split up Dogs in two at that quiet barking point. And I love that song as well, it's probably one of my favorites. Well actually the entire Animals album might be among my favorite Pink Floyd stuff.

Yeah, the song has a pretty big "jamming" part. In a Roger Waters DVD, during that part, some of the bands members stop to play poker in the middle of the stage, with the backing vocals as the dealers. Neat stuff.

Another Brick in the Wall is indeed another one, although the parts are not that long.

And it's hard to count them as one song, since they're "bonded" with other songs. I mean, you can't listen to parts 1 and 2 without "The Happiest Days In Our Lives" between them. I'd rather listening to The Wall as a whole.

Another album that comes to mind is Ummagumma. I haven't listened to it all that much yet, but I believe there are many songs with many parts on it.

I've never heard it, despite my dad having it (I think). I'll give a listen to some of his old LPs one day, there are some great (and rare) things in there.

Now I feel like listening to Pink Floyd. =)

Yeah I guess the reasoning behind that would be because it would make life difficult for those who legitimately want to add people.

To me it's not that fact that spam movies pass judgment but what happens afterwords is what really bothers me. They are either lightning rods for abusive reviews or either they are designed to steal awards, noticeably Under Dog of the Week. If we could figure a way to solve that problem then I would be fine with it.

Alternative Character Battle 2 - Battle 10: Engineer vs Dogen

Today, I entered the Top 200 in EXP! Sadly, I couldn't be exactly #200 but oh well, I'll take the extra rank for granted. I entered the top 250 on 19th July 2009 so that's taken me almost 7 months from 250 to 200. I'm guessing I won't see a top 150 entry until the end of the year.

Also, I decided to make my Top 10 metal intros but bare in mind that due to copyright claims, you may not be able to see this video. :( WMG and Sony took copyright claim on this video (but it's still up there) the second it was uploaded. Damn!

Listening to:

Immortal - All Shall Fall

Bioshock 2 will win, and if Gears of War 3 is out this year, then that will win over it aswell.

Achievement of the Day
Bahamut: Top 200 Experience

You don't get so many achievements anymore nowadays, but when you do it's always a pretty impressive one. Congrats on this nice achievement Bahamut!

Congrats to:

Heh, I really need to organize my favourites. =P

But I really like Pink Floyd. I remember listening to them since I was 6 years old. My dad used to play "Animals" all the time in his car, and I liked them since the beginning!

6 years old? That's quite young then. I think I really got into Pink Floyd when I turned 17 or so. Before that I never listened to them much and only knew their famous songs.

Yeah, but you could easily split up Dogs in two at that quiet barking point. And I love that song as well, it's probably one of my favorites. Well actually the entire Animals album might be among my favorite Pink Floyd stuff.
Yeah, the song has a pretty big "jamming" part. In a Roger Waters DVD, during that part, some of the bands members stop to play poker in the middle of the stage, with the backing vocals as the dealers. Neat stuff.

Really? I have never seen that performance, but it sounds pretty cool. Can you tell me which DVD that was?

Another Brick in the Wall is indeed another one, although the parts are not that long.
And it's hard to count them as one song, since they're "bonded" with other songs. I mean, you can't listen to parts 1 and 2 without "The Happiest Days In Our Lives" between them. I'd rather listening to The Wall as a whole.

Indeed and the second part does not really set the right tone for the third part. I think you'll need Don't Leave Me Now.

Another album that comes to mind is Ummagumma. I haven't listened to it all that much yet, but I believe there are many songs with many parts on it.
I've never heard it, despite my dad having it (I think). I'll give a listen to some of his old LPs one day, there are some great (and rare) things in there.

All I know is that there is some pretty odd stuff on that album. I do like the song The Narrow Way part 3 very much though.

Then it will be a case that someone like my girlfriend will skip it when it comes on in the car, much to my protest.

Heh, so you two got different tastes in music?

And no, iTunes store doesn't have it :( Just the 5/6 minutes versions.

Well there are also other places to get music from.

Very nice, congrats. I'm slowly climbing ranks towards the top 300. But this will still take a while, I don't think I'll reach it before summer.

WMG and Sony took copyright claim on this video (but it's still up there) the second it was uploaded. Damn!

This is just another example of how Copyright is being misused nowadays... seriously, how much does a simple video where a user does a small compilation of his favorite metal intros hurt the companies? >:(

Hey, we have been over this already. -.-

Also Manowar sucks monkey balls
That makes no sense whatsoever.
It does.
Not when you put Manowar and sucks monkey balls together. Also, that page mentioned AC/DC and not Manowar, lol.

Haha, yeah. I was thinking: "Well, AC/DC isn't that great, but why didn't he put Manowar there?" ^^

No-one nominated Colonel for the Character Battle so he couldn't do a thing.
The colonel still could have given Soldier a call on his codec.
Why would Colonel talk to Soldier anyway?

Because he's a nice guy and doesn't like Mantis at all.

Yeah I guess the reasoning behind that would be because it would make life difficult for those who legitimately want to add people.

In my opinion, they should make a "more flashes, higher score" thing. For every 10 flashes an account has, the score for other flashes of his to pass should raise. That could work as well.

To me it's not that fact that spam movies pass judgment but what happens afterwords is what really bothers me...

Portal Mods. I've said that a couple of times already, along with a thousand other users.

Go man, go!

I'm trying to push for at least 30 a day, but I managed to get over 40 in the past two days. Huzzah!

Heh, that happens. I'd rather put the CD on the computer and play it on order, anyway. I do that with most CDs I have.
On occasion, I do just want one kind of music - when I'm practising for my band, I just stick the playlist on with our repertoire and run through that, without shuffle on, for example.

I do that as well. I've made some playlists, including a Metallica and Iron Maiden setlists for their shows. =)

Yeah, yesterday was a hard day for blams, I got only 9 blams + 3 flagged ones. Soon my saves count will match my blams one. =/
I think I only managed 8. I still cracked 50 B/P though and I'm now within 2 digits of passing gfoxcook :D

Hey, nice! Maybe when you pass him he'll pop up again to congratulate you. He hasn't gained much B/P lately, anyway...

Ah, but we all know who wins all the time (unless it's a HUGE upset!).
Yeah, but it's been a long while since we played a match that means something against Wales ;)

For what cup/league was it, anyway?

Speaking of which, I'll make the FIFA World Cup thread. But should I make it now or wait a little more, closer to the first game date?
Save it for a while - we've only just started talking about the Winter Olympics, so leave it until about May.

Sure. But the 2006 World Cup thread was created in the middle of February... I'll save it for later, anyway.

Also, I decided to make my Top 10 metal intros but bare in mind that due to copyright claims, you may not be able to see this video. :( WMG and Sony took copyright claim on this video (but it's still up there) the second it was uploaded. Damn!

You uploaded it somewhere else as well, didn't you?

6 years old? That's quite young then. I think I really got into Pink Floyd when I turned 17 or so. Before that I never listened to them much and only knew their famous songs.

I started listening to rock in general early as well. It helped me with English and defining what songs I like nowadays. I loved Pink Floyd, David Bowie, Zeppelin, Mike Oldfield, Genesis... All the songs that my dad listens to, basically.

Yeah, the song has a pretty big "jamming" part. In a Roger Waters DVD, during that part, some of the bands members stop to play poker in the middle of the stage, with the backing vocals as the dealers. Neat stuff.

In The Flesh, a really good DVD. It's part Pink Floyd/part Roger Waters' songs.

Another Brick in the Wall is indeed another one, although the parts are not that long.
And it's hard to count them as one song, since they're "bonded" with other songs. I mean, you can't listen to parts 1 and 2 without "The Happiest Days In Our Lives" between them. I'd rather listening to The Wall as a whole.

Agreed. Part 3 has a different... mood from the other 2 parts.

Speaking of which, have you ever watched The Wall movie?

You might as well forget about trying to put mainstream music on Youtube. You should try some other site like Veho.

You know, that doesn't sound like a bad idea. You would think the more as a user submits the better he should get. I like this idea but it might be difficult to implement because they might break out an alt just to submit garbage.

Portal Mods. I've said that a couple of times already, along with a thousand other users.

Eh, I think the staff feels very hesitant about having users mess around with other user submitted content. They typically want all of the responsibility of deleting stuff on Wade or another Staff's shoulders in case they are wrong.

What I really think they can use is another Admin to help carry Wade's burden of dealing with stolen content and such. What's Luis really doing; let's get him to do some work. :)

Yeah, Wade isn't too quick with this stuff due to the volume of PM's he gets. It's been five days since I pm'd him about a stolen submission and it's still here. More staff would be great.

Also, this is my 9000th post!

Achievements are taking a while to attain these days which is having the knock-on effect of me not having any real reason to post in the level up! lounge, except to drop in on the people I know here.

So this is me saying hello and sorry I have nothing else to post :(
