I actually called him Dis-Go Barf, to be exact - when I was still influenced by Disco Boy's incessant namecalling.

My own favourite from that period is this stupid haiku, which implies Nanook of the North as another name for the little bugger --

Well, I called DB an "attention whore" didn't I? Well, his overall demeanour, and this goes way back to the old pre-crash forum (see "Least favorite drummer" thread, lots of DB posts themselves are gone, but quoted heavily by still-intact users), does strike me as opinionated wankery at its worst. I can't really figure out how can a person get so bloody opinionated and give strong evidence of hostile aggression against any dissenting opinion, other than seeing underlying attention craving motives. If someone proves me that DB is not the kind of poster to whom there is "no such thing as a good or bad behaviour, only effective or ineffective"*, I'll take back my words.

* how my friend, a father of two girls himself, summed up the problem of misbehaving children once. Goes without saying that much of the bickering on this forum and DB is just one participant among several, is rather childish as well.

I remember the first argument I had with DB, probably 6 months after the forum first started or so. It was about Tim Buckley. DB had said something about having heard enough TB to know that he is terrible or some such equivalent. Knowing that TB can be a difficult listen, I suggested that before giving up on TB all together, he should try Dream Letter. I think that album is much better than any other album he did, so it seemed a reasonable thing to suggest. DB wouldn't hear of it and made it very clear he would never listen to any TB again. I figured different strokes, so let I it go. Who knows, maybe that conversation is still out there somewhere. I suppose 10+ years later, I probably have it all wrong, but that discussion has stuck with me. Especially in light of his recent comments about The Edge. See, I have no intention of listening to U2 and finding out if The Edge is a great guitarist because he is in a band with Bono, who I can't stand. So, while DB's stance on TB has bothered me for years, I guess I can't claim higher ground. That is, unless one considers TB worthwhile and U2 not so.

That was worth a quick peek. I had no idea. 8 years on and it's the same old story.
And Hell, I'd sooner listen to Fergie's Fergalicious on a 24 hour loop than ever, ever get near a dream theater or rush record. And U2? okay for girls, I guess. note: In this day and age I'm happy that anyone chooses music, whatever kind, over the boob tube, hollywood, celeb worship, etc. So enjoy it.

you can. One is art (the dead guy) and the other is pop, which is disposable.

U2 was pretty good when considering other pop music of the same era. When so many bands did the synth pop thing or that laughable hair metal thing, their brand of guitar pop certainly distinguished itself. However, if you compare them to The Fall for instance (or another edgy post-punk rock ensemble), U2 sounded pretty compromising and even stadium-y.

I don't see anything wrong with pop myself, but U2 are Christian pop; never one of my personal favourite genres.
Mind you, at least they inspired Harry & Paul to take the piss...

not that all pop is disposable, like everything it mutates or the innovative bits are lifted for other purposes. but the stadium variety sure is disposable, in which U2 was born to flourish.

I only vaguely remember this conversation. So I can't comment. But I do remember you stating you weren't interested in hearing Jeff Buckley's music, simply because after asking one of his fans outside of a club where he was playing, who was playing that night, the fan pretentiously stated that you wouldn't understand his music, or something to that effect.

I just listened to chunks of this album and I actually don't mind it. But it's a little too one dimensional for my tastes.

I don't think you realize how incredibly ignorant your above statement is. Not only since the word "disposable" is too subjective, but also because U2 never really made music that was considered "pop" until 2000. For example, listen to Achtung Baby (1991), Zooropa (1993) & Pop (1997) and then come back and tell me that the three aforementioned albums are "pop" music. Trust me, you'll be quite shocked...because these albums are some of the most innovative and experimental of the '90s...

It's Tim Buckley, not Jeff his lesser known contortionist side show speed freak cousin. You pulled a Bono. :mrgreen:

^I didn't think Arkay was referring to Tim's kid though was he? I mean until you brought that up Arkay wasn't interested because of some exit poll from one fan^. I think Arkay would make up his own mind and not just judge from an ex-fan that's just leaving, or his/her views.

...and thank you for for not calling me a name even though I might have pulled a Bono too or Boehner if you prefer! :wink:

I'm not a true blue U2 fan, but saw them in concert circa 1984, and I have to say it was a damn good show (outdoor, not raining, 40,000 people aprox)

Thats cool DB that you remember the conversation. I do like some Jeff Buckley, but I prefer TB in general.
The story you are referencing is when I was walking by a venue in Chicago where people were waiting outside to see Jeff Buckley. I casually asked who was playing and got the hipster "psssh" brush-off for not knowing who he was before the rest of the world.

It amazes me how DB does not realize that the first statement is contradicted by the second statement which, in turn, makes one slightly disinclined to engage in the third statement.

BTW, slime.oofytv.set I should have written the bottom of the list, not the top and I'll gladly move you upwards if you give us a good reason - but do you really want to be one of the herd? Either top or bottom, I say! :wink:

Yea, sure thing Granny!
I have this disturbing vision of db hobbling about in a black dress, glasses pinched to nose, waving a switch, maybe in an old wooden wheelchair.
So far, I've been told to STFU, that I am an asshole, a hypocrite, a joke, a cocksucker, etc.
All for a little gentle needling.

I bet Izzy'd love Jelly Roll Gum Drop. Fun song for kids, it's got candy in it! :wink:

I thought she'd know the lyrics to Brown Shoes Don't Make It by now. What's da matter, slow learner or teacher? :mrgreen:

I see now where I think we got our wires crossed. I should've separated the JB statements I made and included them in a second paragraph. My bad.

There's plenty of questions you could've answered pages ago (and in other threads too). And you haven't answered SHIT. ALL you've done in this thread is thrown ad hominems at me. :roll:

No bad to it DB, I'm not familiar with JB's music or name is all. It's nice to know we can get our wires crossed and not have a war break out over it though! :wink:

Now where's those setlists? :twisted: I've read the 1st show was just average and had equipment problems. I hope it all goes smooth for Dweezil's 44th Birthday tomorrow.
