  1. FORGIVE ME FOR USING MY 1000TH POST FOR SAYING, IN GLORIOUS ALL CAPS, THAT I'M LOSING MY SHIT RIGHT HERE. CAN I ALSO HAVE A NW PUMPKINS UNITED TOUR AND MAYBE A PONY FOR CHRISTMAS? THANKS
  2. Well, "one"...
  3. Awwww thanks.
  4. Cultural differences.
  5. I know. Does anyone have a sense of humour in here
  6. Wait, since when do we have to ask permission to call Tolkki a jerk.
  7. How come nobody has posted this gem yet? Awesome song: check. Awful video: well, Dio miming every word of the lyrics is funny enough, but when you see Vivian Campbell essentially scaring the protagonist's stalker away with his shredding... oh, man. Also check.
  8. You'd have to see my face right now.
  9. Little point, schlittle point, this stuff is awesome, every bit of it. Martina included.
  10. <troll> Actually, probably her contract said they did. </troll>
  11. Why are you so defensive? I said nothing to invalidate your opinion, with which I fully agree. In fact, since a man of impeccable taste like me shares your opinion you could very well say the aesthetics are objectively bad. I was mostly lamenting that, well, diluting its identity -- visual and otherwise -- is where the genre is going. I find the recent popularity of top hats (a rather un-metal accessory for which Mustis caught a lot of flak back in the day) among metal musicians, including Nightwish, to be particularly emblematic. EDIT: No, it was Aarstad, much to the outrage of Burger fans.
  12. "More conservative" is the understatement of the century. Most European states have a strong tradition of welfare, heavy regulations, public everything and varying degrees of anti-militarism (whereas America just loves its military). The average American's opinions on these same subjects would probably be labeled somewhere between "far right" and "come on, it's got to be a parody". To be fair, since the mid-90s and particularly over the last 10 years several European countries are steering towards a... more American worldview. Go figure: when I was born, the Communist and the Socialist party together held nearly 40% of the seats in the Italian parliament, and the Communists were the majority. Meanwhile, the US had Reagan as president. The fun part is that in America they also use "liberal" to mean "left-wing", whereas in Europe you mostly hear about "the [economically] liberal right". Nobody loves top hats, right? But hey, if you look around, I suppose the traditional "denim & leather" metal aesthetic is mostly dead - along with what it used to mean, socially. I mean, look at us, here we are, on an internet forum, discussing Chris' hat.
  13. I teach a class in high school and by God, if I had a student like you I would bring a cane to school, and possibly dogs. BAM, Godwined in 90 pages. Well played, Anette thread.
  14. Make the forum great again! Awwwww. Wine, you say? You've got that. Is it? Let me try... +1! ...I can confirm, it's easier. But really, feel free to relieve us of the toil of spamming the forum
