Are the Olympics over and done with already? If so, good! I'm glad the burden is put behind us all now.

There is a very distinctive sound for the pieces by Thin Lizzy, but the same can be said for bands like Status Quo, AC/DC and so forth. I'm not sure it hurts them, though.

Can't say I like Status Quo all that much. They only have a few standout songs and the rest is highly forgettable and even now they're still recording new albums. AC/DC may fall to repetition but they at least were able to write a fair amount of good tunes.

Also, what do you make of Muse saying that Dubstep is the new Metal? I couldn't resist giving this hornet's nest a kick!

I even listened to the new Muse song. I guess I'll have to write them off now as they couldn't hold out much with The Resistance and it doesn't look like they'll do well here either. I really hate the popularity of dubstep. It's a genre with very little innovation that was blown out of proportion. This genre is certainly nothing like prog rock that still lives today in various forms.

Eh, quality over quantity.
My news posts of late have hardly been of quality - I just write a lot of words, that make vague sense.

I have an idea for another post later on so stay tuned.

I've been there myself. Not reviewing anything because I didn't feel like it. At the same time I was telling myself that, I "didn't have the time", when in reality, all I did was sitting in front of the PC, not doing anything. >_>

I have loads of free time but I spend it all just lazing around on the laptop. I should earn medals on here, I should make more icons but nope, all I'm doing is being a lazy fuck. I suppose video games and TV are great ways to make yourself lazy.

You can go ahead and piss whoever off, I have other things to worry about.
On the other hand, it may not be a smart move to piss of a dragon.

It was one of the few things that I disliked about the Olympics. Their song "Now you're a winner", or whatever bollocks it was called kept getting played, despite the fact that it's the same as most of their other works and therefore as deserving of airtime, i.e. as little as possible.

Also, what do you make of Muse saying that Dubstep is the new Metal? I couldn't resist giving this hornet's nest a kick!

Dubstep I certainly don't see right with. It might have been alright if they were doing something different with dubstep but... they're not really doing anything special. It's that same obnoxious noise that I hear from other dubstep.

The human brain is good in denying unpleasant things.

Like the death strip, for example.

11 gold (thanks to Field Hockey) to 13 south korean gold. Close, but not good enough.
However, 44 medals in total is NOT even close to what was expected from official side: 80 medals+. LOL!
I was thoroughly impressed with team GB's performance in the Olympics, from the athletes themselves, to the behind the scenes crew, which made this a very successful and enjoyable games.

But the IOC failed big time on a few occasions. Like, disqualifying the wrong athlete, or "forgetting" to deduct points for a mistake in Gymnastics.

Because I'm enthusiastic and I don't think that anything that is not metal is not music. Seriously, I dislike Madonna, but she just writes music and songs that I don't like. She's got to be good, because otherwise she would not sell so many records.

29,000 posts!

I was hoping to make 30k before the end of 2012 but due to decline of activity on the BBS overall, it's not easy to make over 10 posts a day. Infact, I only find myself doing half of that these days. If I was to estimate when 30k will happen, I'll say February 2013. I'll have 30k EXP well before that happens.

That Bender was wrong? You get medals as well! Bear in mind that in some events, we finished first and second or first and third.

Yeah, because that's all that drives people these days, isn't it? Not everyone is a Premiership Footballer!

Dubstep I certainly don't see right with. It might have been alright if they were doing something different with dubstep but... they're not really doing anything special. It's that same obnoxious noise that I hear from other dubstep.

It gave us a few decent bands - System of a Down, for example.

I managed more than 1/10th of my output from Clock Day 2007, but that was because I got over 100 points. I think on my best Clock Day, it was around 950 Saves. I'd have happilly killed for a Blam on that day back then.

Admittedly, I haven't been around for about the second half of the day. I assumed Clock Day was going to disappoint again anyway. I think it did.

It was my first real Clock Day (the first one where I gained more than 10 saves), and I think it was pretty good. The second half was the busiest half.

I got 144 saves on clock day, and I wasn't on Newgrounds from 6 in the evening until midnight (Newgrounds time). After that, another 50 flash were probably submitted. Over 200 flash is a lot for me.

Also, to I've just reached 190,000 medal points. And that is from medals in 1200 games.

Saves: 5706 (+739 since last log) - 2007, never going to beat that. Good news, NG log said I got a blam which (I think) has happened every Clock day now.

Back in 2007, I wouldn't say I saw most of clock day, now I have a laptop (which I didn't back then), I can see the portal more and that was pretty much all day active. I guess I didn't get over 100 because I tried to blam the shit.

That Bender was wrong? You get medals as well! Bear in mind that in some events, we finished first and second or first and third.

You mean you don't trust that robot?

It's not that there's non-metal music being played. There would be the odd notable rock artist there but on the other hand, if they cannot give any credit to heavy metal, then simply, FUCK YOU!
That's a very blinkered view of things.

It's still truthful, though. There's no reason to praise all this crap when they don't do it right. I'm pretty sure I got headache from all that noise they threw in for the crappy ceremonies.

Unless of course, all the big acts like Iron Maiden and Black Sabbath simply said no to this tripe. I know for a fact that David Bowie and The Rolling Stones declined and I'll say good on them. I'm willing to assume everyone who was there did it for the money.
Yeah, because that's all that drives people these days, isn't it? Not everyone is a Premiership Footballer!

That's expecting too much from this world. Of course it's all for the money.

Last time we had nu metal, it sucked balls.
It gave us a few decent bands - System of a Down, for example.

I never understood their association with nu-metal at all. They're a decent band unlike Shitknot and Korn.

Eh, standard format can be a bit of a hassle if you're not active in Magic.
My friends have decks and theirs escalate in power much faster than mine. I can't keep up.

My deck has some reckless power to it now. Now if only I had two more of this guy.

Don't be so cynical Bahamut. Its unbecoming of you.

So Clock Day had 210 submissions. I managed 90 saves and 2 blams, (yes I got blams, amazing hey!). So I only wasted 118 Blam votes. God I can't wait for the Whistle to return and Portal Mods to be instigated. It's like LittleWashu says, I to am sick and tired of seeing savewhores get rewarded for bad voting habits. It's about time they fixed this problem and took away the save votes received from those that vote to pass shit through judgement and give them back to the people who voted to remove that shit from the portal. If this small problem was to be fixed and people suddenly realize they are wasting their votes and losing their save points, just watch how quickly their voting habits change back to blamming the shit.

Well it could've been worse, but it pales in comparison to the Clock Days of '05, '06 and '07.

I think I casted a blam or two, but to no avail. Generally I'm okay with the crappy spam submissions on Clock Day though. They're tradition after all.

It's just that one can get the feeling that the "usual suspects" always get higher scores from the judges.

The Paralympics will start in a few weeks.
At least the MAIN burden is over.

Hey, at least London was able to pull it all off without any major screw ups. Now Hamburg on the other hand... they try to get the Olympics to Hamburg for quite some time now. And yet, they can't even finish the "Elbe Philharmonic Hall". It was schedulded to open in 2010 and cost around 241 million Euros (and at the same time, they tell me I have to pay tuition fees because it costs too much money??). Now we have 2012, the damn thing still isn't finished and the costs are somewhere around 450 million Euros now! WTF?!

I have loads of free time but I spend it all just lazing around on the laptop. I should earn medals on here, I should make more icons but nope, all I'm doing is being a lazy fuck. I suppose video games and TV are great ways to make yourself lazy.
The TV is to blame. It's like, if you turn it on, one hour has passed in just a blink of an eye.
Well, I don't use TV itself to watch TV shows. I would if Futurama wouldn't take a fucking eternity for new episodes to be aired over here. At least Red Dwarf X is only a few months away.

I know the problem. It's nearly impossible to watch any US series, since the TV stations decide to butcher the whole season and show the episodes whenever they feel like it. But hey, I just buy the DVDs now and I can enjoy the series's (is that the correct plural of "series"?) in english and don't have to resort to badly translated dubs.
