    The Sickness is a great album.  Still holds up today.

    The Sickness is number two of all the albums in 2000? Ewwwww. I thought that came out in 2001 for some reason.
    I mean given the audience the winner was never in doubt, but with number two I expected a hell of a lot better from you guys.

    Sheep?  Whether Democrat or Republican voters we are all sheep.  Trump's a bigot.  Hillary is a criminal.  It's a joke.  We're voting between a douchebag and a shit sandwich.

    My Letter is a great song.  I'm sure it'll be awesome on piano.  I love Only the Strong on piano, so I know they're capable of doing another great remake.

    I've only recently discovered Meriwether and this is one of my favorites from them. I love how it changes from an all out rocker to bluesy near the end.

    While I'm not advocating banning him or getting a whole other conversation going on this...isn't sexism and rampant objectification at the level of consistency/persistence that jmg has displayed at anything Meg Myers related on par with Harty and DD? The only difference really is that Harty/DD had years of a track record, but that track record also included them being solidified in the community so it should work equally for and against them in comparison to jmg. I guess I don't get the differential treatment other than WHO is annoyed by him. I will say that jmg has more actively and overtly tried to start shit than either of the people who got banned so whether you like it or not, that is kinda the precedent that was set and the bar to which future banning conversations will be held. I get why Dylan is going there and I get his adamant reply to the idea being totally dismissed.

    Now I happen to like having jmg here, but I also voted to keep Harty/DD so my pushing for jmg to leave is about a sense of consistent handling of things and feeling like their banning was fair/just as far as the standards people are going to be held to on here.

  18. Follow the Hollow gave reputation to Mike in Topic regarding singing!   
    Welcome to the forums, @dogtrain. I used to be the singer of a relatively well-known Czechoslovakian industrial J-pop rock band called Fixing Harry. When I sing, I tend to tighten my stomach. One time I kept it relaxed and in the middle of the high note I shit myself right there on stage in front of 47,000 people. Ever since that fateful night, I always tighten my stomach when I'm singing.

    There's too much negativity on Facebook and gullible people that will believe any meme circulated.

    Y'all got rid of a couple of trolls, but forgot to take out the bridge.

    Can we  trade DD for Jmg? 
  22. Follow the Hollow gave reputation to Jamie in Should We Ban Harty & DarkDragon?   
    I have to say as a semi-frequent poster here (but perhaps not all-time core member), I've found Break's comments to be way more incendiary than DD's/Harty's from the sample size that I've seen. Perhaps that comes from a bias of having seen DD contribute positively in the music community and Harty have some fun with us in the fantasy forums whereas I've had fewer favorable interactions with Break to balance out the negative. Honestly, if we were voting to ban anybody, people like Break or jmg seem more like they actively try to start shit. But jmg is entertaining enough that his doucherie adds a bit of color to the community, I suppose. 

    And as Tilley said, I do understand why some people have difficulty with Andrew. I do think Andrew is obviously a core member of this community and contributes positively, but part of why I'm so swift to come to DD's defense is that from my perspective, I see Andrew as having the propensity to be brash and rough around the edges. I feel that I've had to put more effort to be on good terms with Andrew than I'd have to with say Pen or Jason or Chris or Jman as far as people are quite easy for most anyone on here to get along with. I guess that's what I don't like about the ban of DD. In that case it feels like taking a side in the DD vs. Andrew thing. Are DD's social difficulties clearly the main problem in their ongoing conflict? Absolutely, unequivocally, and without question, yes. But I do think it's more complicated than that, and just as I used to have a bit of conflict with Omar and some other conflicts that popped up over the years, it takes two to tango, and while Omar and I each made effort to make good and get along and respect/like each other quite well now, I think both DD and Andrew could have done a lot better over the years to coexist in that relationship. And while Tilley may be a relative outsider, what Tilley says there in observing Andrew as brash is not wrong, and that's why I've been quite vocal and persistent in coming to DD's defense.

    I really don't think DD should be banned for two months but thats just me. Yes he's a troll, but his comments are much easier to ignore than Harty's have been in the past. DD contributes a ton to the bands to know section and I have found a lot of great music from him. He may troll a lot but it seems like a lot of the tension can be avoided with him vs Harty whos comments seem to go over the top a lot.

    Still might be interesting.  It's a shame they can't make up with Zack.  I do wonder though why they just don't keep using the Rage Against the Machine moniker and find a suitable replacement.  The other three members seem to want to play together first Audioslave ( who I wish were still together as well) and now this band.

    We can only hope.
