Cause my friends go there. I don't have to listen to it, there's always loads of people outside in the smoking area. It's kind of weird, during the day the outside part is kind of a public area but at night it's a part of the club. i just end up talking to people out there.
^Maybe you should try not being closeminded and actually listening to new music?
I'm not being close minded, I've tried to listen to dance music. I don't like it, can't help what I like and don't like. Just because someone doesn't like a type of music doesn't mean they're close minded.
I don't even like AC/DC it's just by the end of the night I'm so deprived of music that I consider halfway decent that I'll generally dance to anything with an instrument. It seems to always be played at the end of the night.
Anyone headed to Evile in Cork? I'm about 50/50 at the moment as I'm trying to convince my friend who does not like metal to go. My bargaining chip is that he can get lots of drink in a different city and a day off school. It would have been easier if they came to Limerick.
Wow, I actually liked the Eragon movie, never read the books I mean, it wasn't anything special, but I enjoyed watching it. Is Eldest being made into a movie?
Probably not because from what I heard ( I didn't watch the film, haven't watched a film based on a book I've read since Harry Potter 3) they completely butchered the storyline and killed off two characters that are vital in the next books.
what is your favorite genre of music? Metal: Megadeth, Evile, Iron Maiden, Metallica, Deicide etc. why does this genre of music appeal to you? It's fast and aggressive, can't explain why, I just like it. what first got you into heavy music? Tear's don't Fall by Bullet For My Valentine surprisingly
what do you think of the current state of the music industry/mass media? I don't think about it.
what do you think specifically of todays mainstream/successful bands? Most of them bore me.
describe your usual style of dress and why you dress this way. I normally wear tracksuit and t shirt around the house or just out on the road with my friends. It's comfortable. Going into town or anything I wear jeans and a band t-shirt and going out out (if that makes sense) I wear jeans and a shirt. if you were at a heavy metal concert and you saw a cowboy looking kind of guy or a total gangsta, what would be going through your mind? 'That's strange'
define poser Someone who pretends like a type of music to fit in with other people?
do you take pride in the music you listen to? Yeah.
describe a typical concert experience for your favorite genre of music I've only been at one so there was moshing, headbanging and singing along with the band. what are your opinions on hardcore dancing? love it? hate it? why do it? if you hate it, tell us what you do in a mosh pit when you see someone doing it... I don't like it but don't hate it. Though if someone's purposefully trying to hurt people the they're idiots.
One time I was playing a rugby match and we were losing 20-0 at half time. During half-time I heard some laughter from their team. We came back and won 28-25. That was pretty great. They were sickened after it.
Thanks for the replies and yes I get the picture, I couldn't have been more wrong. Bass is just as, if not harder than guitar. I'm still going to try it but wait until summer when I'm officially finished school and have more time on my hands.
a bass is not easier to play because of only having 4 strings nor is it for failed guitarists.
I know that but I think I might be better at it because I'll be finished school and have more time on my hands and also think I might like it more, generally if you like something you're more inclined to practice and with practice comes improvement.
Also to Macabre_Turtle I know it'll take a lot of work, my friend said I could learn how to play if I actually put some effort in but the problem is for me Rugby comes before guitar/bass which means it'll always come second.
O.K. So the term 'switching' is to be taken very loosely. Basically I've tried learning guitar and have failed, probably because I can't give it the time I need because of school and rugby. So I was at first thinking of postponing my learning until I'm finished school but then I heard a bass. I really liked it and also think it would be easier to play.
Note to all bassists here I am in no way saying that bass is easy, I'm sure it's not but it'll be easier for me to learn based on my logic of less strings = less learning time. Probably not the case but I was thinking of trying it, anyway my friend said he'll buy my guitar that he sold me back from me for 1/10 of the price (not inclined to go along with it) and he can get me a good bass for €30.
So what do you think, should I continue on with guitar which to be honest I don't particularly enjoy because I view it as a chore and move on to a bass which I think I might enjoy because I like the way it sounds.
I'm also a hooker/prop/wing-forward. Rugby (Union that is) is the best sport in the world. Any Americans want to watch it, USA is playing Munster, the team I support on Saturday. I think it's being shown on ESPN, though not sure.
Not quite a funny story but once for my school we were 20 - 0 down at half time. We came back and won 28 - 25. It was great because I'd heard one or two of them laughing at half-time.
Master of Puppets is Metallica's third album. It was released by Elektra Records on February 21 1986. The album is quite possibly the single most overrated album in the history of metal, topping almost any "Greatest Heavy Metal Album List" for no apparent reason other than being rather tame for thrash metal and containing many unrelated acoustic passages deemed "revolutionary" and "groundbreaking".
EDIT: Damn, that's what I get for not reading the entire topic.
