    What a bunch of biased horseshit.  Too many Dodgers got off the hook, and Hinske didn't do jackshit in the brawl and gets five games?  I'm all about the Kennedy suspension; it's deserved and I won't make a fuss otherwise.  Most of that is absolute horseshit though.  Puig only gets a fine for throwing punches at half of our team?  Greinke gets off despite intentionally throwing at a player?  Howell only gets two games for literally throwing and pinning a Dback into the railing? 
     
    Horseshit horseshit horseshit.  This is the biggest bunch of Dodger biased bullcrap I've ever seen.

    Pledging an amount to help create an album/create a piece of that band's history for a smaller, unsigned, or non-(previously) huge band = good
     
    Pledging to help a band tour the world that used to be big  = meh

    The UI transition guide lays all that out for developers.  On existing apps, it'll actually use the retina iPad icon now (if it has one) on the iPhone, because Apple changed the icon size across the board for developers to use (probably for scaling purposes).  It even lays out how to support iOS6 and iOS7 in one app.  So a test app I was working on had different icons for the different resolutions (for testing purposes) and it was odd for the iPad icon to show up on the iPhone.  Existing apps that are iPhone-only and don't have high enough resolution icons, or have icons with the pre-rendered flag set in the plist file, have a small black pixel border around them.  All existing apps also still keep the iOS UI appearance.  They have to be specifically compiled against the 7.0 target to get the new UI elements.  And if you compile targed for 7, you can't submit to the App Store.  So anyone running the betas won't see their existing apps change to have the new look until the final version is out in the fall.  They can update the icon to work, but that's about it (unless they manually recreate all the UI elements to look like the iOS7 elements, but that seems like an unnecessary amount of work and a waste of developer time).

    It's about time. Their first few albums were good, screw the rest.

  6. wired.illusion received reputation from pen in New NIN album is finished!   
    Presale is today for a lot of dates.

    Looks like I'm for sure going to the Orlando Halloween show (Gary Numan is opening!). I really wanted to see GY!BE as well and the wife has really been wanting to vacation to Washington, DC... so think I'm going to the Washington, DC show as well!

    Edit: Washington GA tickets acquired! Holy fuck expensive

    Nope, kill it all and restart.

    Issue is fixed, happy to catch it now.

    Don't worry. We have three flights of stairs in my apartment building.
  10. wired.illusion received reputation from Chris. in MM Round 1 Set 3: Grinspoon vs. InMe   
    Felt the desire to vote for InMe just to fuck with DD, but I do prefer Grinspoon.
  11. wired.illusion received reputation from pen in MM Round 1 Set 3: Daniel Powter vs. Stone Sour   
    Obvious win for Stone Sour...
    Far from it. Pen by far has the more difficult job figuring out the albums, setting up the bracket, keeping it going, and putting up with everyone critiquing the hell out of him (including me!). Not everyone gets what they want in, shit even some of the stuff I want to see in it doesn't get in (and I help run it!).Annnddd this.

    I think what DD fails to realize is that, if he were perhaps a bit less of an asshole, Pen would be more open to adding his obscure-ass bands.  He jumped through hoops to try and get a few bands in for some of the more-respected members here.  It's no one's fault but his own.

    Also, there are quite a few bands in this tournament that I don't like. I didn't put in Dinosaur Jr. because no one gives a fucking shit about Dinosaur Jr., kind of much like no one gives a fucking shit about DarkDragon.

  16. wired.illusion received reputation from pen in Favorite Venue   
    I've only been to venues around Florida, some in Atlanta, and then some in Wisconsin. So not much travel experience to other venues If I had to pick a favorite local venue it would be House of Blues Orlando. Though The Plaza Live is starting to become a favorite as well.

    Heh, Anna-Sun is pretty fucking catchy. Not my thing, but certainly catchy. Fuck it, they get my vote. Who cares.
  18. wired.illusion received reputation from Ruiner in Randy Blythe Has Been ACQUITTED Of Manslaughter Charges in the Czech Republic   
    You guys against Randy on this simply because you don't like Lamb of God are fucking pathetic, come on now.
     
    First off, I'm still incredibly impressed Randy actually went back to the country to stand trial and take whatever he had coming to him. Fucking impressive, I don't think I could have done that. I'm happy the court made the right descision on this one, it would have been absurd had he been found guilty (or anything else in similar situtions).

    Darn. I was hoping Lamb of God would go away

    That's what music madness is all about, right? Giving all the slackers a chance to catch up on what they missed throughout the year.
     
    At least that's what it does for me. I remember when Eye Empire dominated the last one, I had not checked them out yet, and after seeing them go through MM, I had to check out Moment of Impact.
  22. wired.illusion gave reputation to kyle1020 in Oh Hay, It's A Tournament   
    Hooray! Now I can cram all the listening I didn't do over the course an entire year into the short time span of a single tournament. This is why I love Music Madness: it let's me accomplish my goals in a shortened time frame.
     
    Thanks to Pen and Wired for doing another kick-ass job!

    Also got a US release on their Best Of CD from 2005.
  24. wired.illusion received reputation from Lucas in Voting Site Updates   
    Okay so I just made two suggested changes to the voting site for Music Madness.
    Increase the size of the video to a more watchable size. Add in a "similar artists" type feature. You'll see this on the left column when you open up an album. This is populated from last.fm, so quality may vary... but it should give you a quick idea of who an artist may sound like or is related to. Is there anything else you guys would like to see added or changed up? At this point the system is a few years old, I'm open to changing this up a bit (ugh I hate looking at this old code though!). At some point I need to re-write the entire thing...
