- I hate when I see ads saying "MP10, MP11" and above. I can understand up to MP5s, but after that, isn't it easier just calling it a cellphone?
- Super Bowl tonight! I'm not too excited, though. I'd rather today's Capitals victory over the Penguins, marking their 14th straight victory! :)

Oh yeah, that song. One of the high points of their concert, when they played Enter Sandman right after.I'm trying to get the guys to play Nothing Else matters as a part of our repertoire, since we need something that effectively has vocal solos, since we cater to everything else :P
Hey, try convincing them, it'll sure be a great addition to your band's repertoire. I mean, everyone knows Nothing Else Matters, so you can always shout "sing along now!" :)

Now, aiming for best or worst mod 2010? :PBest, obviously ;) I'm not on General often enough to win worst :P
Hahahaha, of course. Make sure your ban messages cause the less butthurt possible, so you won't even be nominated.
Oh yeah, I want to hear that one! Hey Johnny Park is one of my favourite Foo Fighters' song, oddly. :)It's one of those that I get caught up in trying to sing the backing and lead vocals at the same time with. Still, a big of encouragement for the guys and we can make that work :D
It must be hard then, since the back vocals are more melodic and the main ones are more "dry", mostly in the chorus.
If you're still taking suggestions, listen to "Walking A Line". It's a B-Side, but it's an excellent song as well. I dare you to scream like Dave Grohl. ;)One of the very few Foos songs I haven't heard... I'll search for it.
Give it a listen: I have this one in a "One by One" special edition, that has some B-sides and a couple of live songs. It's worth trying it, since it's a quite heavy song, but with a catchy chorus. =)

It'll be a long shot asking Tom to raise the blam limits.I know - I'm just frustrated, I guess. With how things look, particularly on Clock Day, we do need to get a bunch of submissions removed, but with Tom's "There's some good in everything" attitude, we can't really move, which can't be helped - it is his website, after all.
Indeed. He already tried making things harder for collabs, in a "more authors, better flash" attitude. Really, the normal threshold could be raised a little. He should listen to the community's ideas more often.

Uber thanks for all those additions!

Vista (a "crime", according to them)Sadly, I have Vista and I have noticed some slow issues with it. If Windows 7 is said to be faster, then I will consider getting it. However, I need to think about it before going ahead with installing a new OS onto this laptop.
It's really good, it's much lighter than Vista is. And I believe that most hardware compatible with Vista works with W7 as well. At least on our laptop, only one thing was left out, a "card reader", I think.
How come the Soldier lost? =/Because Psycho Mantis has special powers the Soldier doesn't have.
So? I want to see Psycho Mantis dodging a Direct Hit!
Ehh... not really. =PAww shucks.
Indeed. I won't ever risk installing Steam there.
Hey, not a bad idea. Since he deals with the interesting stuff around here ;)Have you even seen how terrible he is at news reporting? Everyone hates that guy!
But since he's the only reporter around, what else can we do? Get S-k-y to "tweet" the winners? =P
Oh, and are you going to give a go at CS?Of course but I may as well wait until I get onto C. I'm close to finishing off A but Oddworld got in my way. However, I could cheat and say it is part of my A-Z Steam games challenge and say Abe's Oddysee and Exoddus start with A. XD
Hahahaha, cheat for CS as well, then.

And I've seen them live on a festival last summer, which was probably the best performance I've seen of them yet. But that's most likely because they were actually the main act and not just a supporting act, so they could make more use of the stage and all.
Yeah, you can't really tell if someone's concert is really good if they're only the opening act. The concert is shorter and the crowd is probably "saving" themselves for the main act.
I especially liked the last 16-minute track of the album consisting of three parts called "The Lightning Strike". They also had some nice animations for that song during the live performance (could be one of the reasons why I like it so much).
Nice, I'll check The Lighting Strike. I usually like songs that are divided in many parts, I think the bands tend to put more effort in them. Muse's Exogenesis Symphony and Dream Theater's "Trial of Tears" are good examples of this.

Really? I like S&M a lot. I have both the CD and the DVD, they're great. I think some song could've been included though, like The Unforgiven and Fade to Black. But it's still worth listening.I don't know... sure some songs sound nice with the orchestra, but most of the time it just doesn't fit so well.
Yeah, I agree. I also don't know why they included so many songs from their recent albums (at the time). I mean, it's an special occasion, you don't play with an orchestra every day. But I agree, some songs don't really go well with the orchestra.
Same thing for albums. It just feels good when you have the real thing in your hands, not just a mere copy. Too bad most games in here are really expensive. This is why there's so much piracy in here (and the PS3 not being very popular =P).
...Plus, the UK doesn't get stupid cut games like we get in Germany most of the time (yeah, green blood in horror games... or no blood at all like in Resident Evil 3!).
Really? Wow, that's a bit too much!
Oh.. back to topic. I used to have pirated copies of many games, but I threw them all out one day and bought the original games. I still download music from time to time, though, but I also buy a lot more albums than "back in the days" now.
I admit that I still download some songs from time to time, but I really try searching for the albums. I'm still looking for a 311 album in here, heh.
I wake up and the street lights are still turned on. It's really tough now that we're in DST. But yeah, at least the day are longer. =)DST? I wish... :P
It's not that hard to wake up when the street lights are still turned on here. ^^
But at least the days are getting longer now. :P
Well, where I was, we could say that it was eight in the afternoon, since the sun was still up by then. =P
Another band that is mostly recognized by one song (one riff, actually). Deep Purple also has great songs, but Smoke on the Water blanks them most of the times.Yeah, it's a shame. Painter is really good as well as is Speed King or Child in Time.
I really like Highway Star and Woman From Tokyo. Real classics!
Also, it's weird that only their drummer remains from their original line-up. =P
