Yeah, I have no problem with classic rock but it's just getting boring. I can't quit because this is the only band in town. I'm the only bassist in town. I've tried talking to them to maybe speed things up a bit (our originals) and they refuse to.

EDIT: and everyone in the band is awesome, I just can't stand playing our originals.

Phil Collins makes probably the worst rock Iīve ever listened (thatīs exaggerated, but you get the point)

Phil Collins does indeed suck. And so does Cliff Richard.

I like Pink Floyd and Jethro Tull because they have talent and are thought provoking, plus I have numbed my brain with drugs to the point that not everything has to be hard out rock and roll anymore.

I like The Doors, because Robbie Krieger is a longtime underrated guitarist and their songs are brilliant, and I like Mirrorball of Neil Young, because itīs awesome and I like The Kinks and The Who for what theyīre doing, but NOT Phil Collins

I agree. The world would be a much better place if Phil Collins would have just stopped making music. A long time ago.

I personally like Jethro Tull and the Rolling Stones, but I can't stand any of the other bands I listened to while I was smoking marijuana. Black Sabbath is okay once in a while. But other than that, I can't really stand classic rock.

I like my music fast. I like the Boston bands that played at breakneck speed. I like the Dead Kennedys ability to make slow songs. I like Flipper. But classic rock is just unlistenable to me nowadays.

Also I think Mike Huckabee should be kicked out of the presidential race for using Chuck Norris in his campaign. That was the most childish stunt I've ever seen anyone pull in a campaign.

Since I know that Chuck Norris is a ****ing republican I started disliking him, but it really funny that the republican candidates are either religious fanatics or people who had 4 wives and got divorced 4 times

5 or 6 years ago I was a really big Uriah Heep fan (from this era I have 11 original CDs) and I liked Nazareth and Whitesanke, nowadays I hate them and hate listen to them

Why the hell can't I get anything to download on soulseek or Utorrent?

Seriously!

On UTorrent I'll have like 30 seeders and 40 peers and get no activity.

On Soulseek nothing happens. Ever.

Anyone know the inner workings of these things?

But I won't be at that, either, I'll be seeing Hostage Calm in Bellemore.

First thing that comes to mind is a firewall. It will block these kind of things without warning you of it first.

Just check it out, and tell me if turning off a firewall helps.

Just a thought: Why is punk my favourite genre when I HATE so much about it? So much elitism, violence, ignorance, jock-mentality, sexism...(I suppose this just defines earth, but still)

Obviously there is a lot of good associated with it or else we wouldn't love it so much but I'm in too negative a mood to focus on that. I just find it funny how I can love something so much but also hate so much about it. It's almost like an annoying little brother whom you have to love and forgive. I don't know.

You love it because you want to look cool in front of the other Sum 41 and Green Day fans.

I know a lot of sexist punks.

Sure, I make the odd slunge joke myself, but if a member of the fairer sex takes me to the side and tells me that my behaviour is downright offensive and will apologise / offer to compensate with a drink.

Then spike it with rohypnol and rat poison.

As for my two cents, I use to love the punk rock movement and its music. I've moved on musically, but I still have some healthy skepticism that I think I picked up while I was into punk. I love the political/ethical side of the movement, however a lot of the bands today think being total dicks is punk. Usually today the punk bands I see think that vulgarity and rudeness is punk, and I don't think it neccesarily is. You have to build communities, not enemies.

Alright, there's my two cents.

It's not a firewall...

Utorrent works kinda well, but it takes awhile for the download to get started now.

I have no idea how to download stuff on Soulseek. I right click, and then click download and nothing happens...
