Especially one where people camp out for several days on the festival grounds. You couldn't pay me enough to do that fucking job - free entry into the festival or no. FUCK THAT. :barf:


MDF is not all indoors. It is half indoors and half outdoors, and the street outside the Sonar gets pretty fucked up after three or four days of metalheads abusing every which way but loose. I wouldn't volunteer for that shit either, and I've been to MDF and know how awesome it is. I'll just buy my ticket, thanks. :eyes:

Yeah, I'm cheap/frugal like that. Jewish instincts and all.

But the people at Vanilla are a lot of fun to talk to. But over all, I did enjoy the official boards a lot. We had a solid group of people, with just the right amounts of trolls/assholes to keep things really entertaining. I miss it :bouville:

The rejection letters have been coming in for me as well. Vanderbilt, Northwestern, UVA, Colorado College. Waitlisted at Hamilton, though.

Also, have you noticed that every single letter/email you've gotten so far says "We got an incredibly large pool of applicants this year?" I thought it was bullshit just to make us feel better about not getting in until I read how many applications the school received and the number they accepted, and Northwestern is 6.66667 PERCENT.

What the hell is with people applying to so many goddamn schools this year? :eyes:

Fellas, college is what you make it. You can be a burnout at Stanford or a diligent worker at Cardinal Direction State University. Go to the best place you got into/can afford, work hard and take the opportunities that are put before you, and you'll be great.

I know people in their third year here at Indiana who still bitch about not getting into Northwestern or wherever. That's no way to live. Unless your dad is a CEO somewhere, your destiny is entirely on you from the day you set foot on campus.

Haha, I wasn't bitching about the fact I've been rejected from so many schools (most of those I didn't expect to get into anyway), I'm just saying these acceptance rates this year are appallingly low, in general.

Also: I applied to exactly one school. I wish they didn't accept as many people as they did because it turns out it was the backup for a lot of people who didn't get into more prestigious schools, and I ended up in a class with a lot of idiots and overcrowded courses.

The rejection letters have been coming in for me as well. Vanderbilt, Northwestern, UVA, Colorado College. Waitlisted at Hamilton, though.

Also, have you noticed that every single letter/email you've gotten so far says "We got an incredibly large pool of applicants this year?" I thought it was bullshit just to make us feel better about not getting in until I read how many applications the school received and the number they accepted, and Northwestern is 6.66667 PERCENT.

What the hell is with people applying to so many goddamn schools this year? :eyes:

The number is rising. I thought it was a little bit much to apply to 9, but there are people at my school who have applied to 20.

I really don't care who lets me in and who doesn't. I just want to know where I'll be spending the next four years of my life.

This. I didn't get into Northwestern and GWU was way too expensive, so I had to go to OSU. I'm making the most of it, and love being here, but I still have to deal with the folks hat applied because "they love football", "bleed scarlet and gray", etc.

Fellas, college is what you make it. You can be a burnout at Stanford or a diligent worker at Cardinal Direction State University. Go to the best place you got into/can afford, work hard and take the opportunities that are put before you, and you'll be great.

I know people in their third year here at Indiana who still bitch about not getting into Northwestern or wherever. That's no way to live. Unless your dad is a CEO somewhere, your destiny is entirely on you from the day you set foot on campus.

To me there's a very fine line between metalcore and groove metal. LOG still has tons of breakdowns, so I still usually label them as metalcore, which isn't always a bad thing. Most people tend to think that the term "metalcore" is as bad as cancer.

I'm pleased you made this.

Progressive elements (in music) almost 100% of the time change what it is I liked about the original genre. I do not give a fuck about impressive musicianship, complex music, etc. I really, do not care. Impressed? Maybe. Does it make for good listening? No. Fancy scales and time signatures just lead to upsetting me. If it didnt have to be attached to a genre I liked I'd care a lot less since I'd just simply ignore it, but "progressive black metal" is not the kind of black metal I want to hear, and as far as I'm concerned kills the real genre. Regression is best in most extreme metal, because everyone seems to have a tendency to fuck things up after 1994.

Fair enough. Metal is so broad of a genre that we have the leisure of choosing what parts we like. Personally, bands like Opeth, Enslaved, Mastodon, and Between the Buried and Me are some of my favorites for those very reasons you dislike them.

Ok, I have to say Meshuggah, from the few songs I've heard, is uninspiring and boring. This djent shit is, by extension, one of the most unoriginal trends in metal, and I wish it would stop ruining good tours. I can hardly tell it apart from deathcore, since that weird down-tuned boing-boing sound fills the majority of the songs.

Couldn't agree more. The song Bleed is ok but Catch 33 may be the worst album I've ever heard. Meshuggah holds the dubious honor of being the only headlining band that I've ever walked out on. Simply awful live band.

Like I said, I've only heard a few songs. I can hear some similarities to Gojira, and I liked Mars to Sirius.

Case in point as to why its boring to me: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h4n_KNX4KIk&feature=related. Its literally the same "noise" through the entire song. Same with Anatomy Lost. And it isn't a good noise. I can dig some WITTR or post-rock/metal that plays on the same "sound" throughout the entire song. But this crunchy industrial sounding....crunch, is the only word I can think of, is really unappealing to me. I don't know.

Had to take a drug test for a job I got last Friday. I prepped this morning :drinking: two cups of coffee, and four full Speedway cups of filtered water. Definitely, was a :badidea: not leaving the house when I felt the need to relieve myself the first time. By the time I left, it was getting serious.

Driving in a torrential downpour down the highway, while trying to keep my mind on anything besides :leak: was HELL! The radio was not helping at all since even on sports talk radio they were taking about liquid, water and flowing streams. :confused: :wtf: I get less than 10 minutes from the testing facility and hit every red light. :angry: :pissed:

At this point, I start having minor convulsions and cursing the traffic lights, I'm sure the people in the cars around me thought I was certifiable. Eureka! Finally I saw the golden arches where I would make an :leak: offering to the porcelain gods.

Immediately, parked my car sideways and sprinted into Mcd's like I was covered in antelope entrails being chased by hungry lions. :scared: I believed at any moment my bladder would cause a massive explosion, possibly disemboweling me in the process :grim: . Relieved :bliss: I made it in the nick of time, I cruised over to the center and gave a sample. :cool: Man, I hate taking drug tests. :grrr:

I can hardly tell it apart from deathcore, since that weird down-tuned boing-boing sound fills the majority of the songs.

First off, your comment is basically true, except I would rephrase it thusly:

The so-called djent sub-genre should be abolished, and all bands who are currently included in it should be razed from the face of the Earth. It is stupid, and all the bands who are included in it suck. Except Meshuggah. They are their own genre. People have been saying for years that "so and so band sounds like Meshuggah" - and they never do. Meshuggah is a phenomenon in and of themselves, and no one will ever repeat what they do. No one. Ever.

...and secondly, you've obviously been listening to the wrong songs (especially if all you've listened to is "Catch 33").

EDIT: Try "New Millenium Cyanide Christ" or "The Mouth Licking What You've Bled" from "Chaosphere", "Perpetual Black Second" or "Straws Pulled at Random" from "Nothing" or "Bleed" or "Pravus" from "obZen". If you don't like a single bit of that, then you probably don't like Meshuggah.



Simply awful live band.http://www.metalteamuk.net/features/meshuggah1.jpg

Bright side - one of those interviews is a job interview (internship, actually) with The Quietus, and the way these things apparently usually go is that it's just a formality to make sure I'm not a racist/rapist and it's a foregone conclusion that I got it, so, yay! :party:

Yeah, Meshuggah is like a cult, though I would've imagined that their fans would be more mature than that (though I'm sure that's only a minority).

Btw, check out "Combustion." It's pretty thrashy.

A UK one called Metal Meltdown.

Some guy on Last.fm invited me, so I joined to check it out. It's basically a little foxhole of cheapskate metal "fans" swapping blog links to leaked albums and uploading stuff on request so none of them have to buy CDs.

They got super pissy when I joined in a conversation about the doom band Argus, recommending they check out the new album due out at the end of the month but refused to share my copy with them.

Hilariously, they're so insecure that the board they've got for people to share their website addresses has a rule banning the sharing of other metal websites and forums. One of the moderators even removed the links to my sites from my signature.

I pretty quickly concluded the whole thing was a waste of my time. None of their threads were at all up to date. None of the shared tour/band info was current. It was basically dead.
