Go to the NEW FORUM
ok, here we go.. as a tribute to the infinite Velvet Underground vs the Henry case and our last contributor of the previously stated über:obvious, Mr. BillAdama, why don't we just merge all of our common "been there, said that, said that again, and said it another time" comments, so nobody ever has to say them again..
my first ten entries:
10. nicolas doesn't like cold music
9. greg doesn't like Animal Collective
8. nj doesn't like The Arcade Fire
7. schleuse doesn't like The Doors
6. Moonbeam doesn't like The Beatles
5. Jonathon DOES like Wilco (a LOT)
4. schleuse DOES like R.E.M. (and suggests that everybody who doesn't is a Taliban)
3. Moonbeam doesn't like the Beatles
2. listyguy likes everything prior to 1972 and hates the rest
1. Moonbeam cannot stand the fucking Beatles
- GOT IT??
this clearly belongs into another, yet-to-be-made thread: The drum-drum-drum ultimate "Ummm, excuse me, my clichés have expired" list..
Good thread idea. I'll add a few
11. Jackson does not like Bob Marley, Simon & Garfunkel, or Bruce Springsteen (except "Thunder Road" and "Born to Run," I might add).
12. Sonofsamiam loves jazz, soul, rap, and pretty much any kind of black music you can think of
13. Romain hates Bob Dylan
14. Moonbeam loves Prince (might be the most obvious one on the whole board)
15. Tim E loves a certain kind of indie pop and absolutely hates the rest of it
We could have an entire list just for Moonbeam.
stephan has a crush on kim carnes
john hates songs that are loger than 4:00 mn
romain and nassim can't stand dylan's music
mindrocker can't make a list with less than 250 items including 175 youtube links
no one can beat honorio's decade polls (with the final result coming 6 months after the poll
(but hon that's cool)
nj can't make a list with more than 10 % of acclaimed stuff
Andre is back
but we still miss damosuzuki
but not Sinder Velvin
henry is amused because so many AMers are enthralled with the VU
nicolas loves to post demographic threads avery 6 months even if everybody has already done it 10 times
nj found a sort of funny demographic thread
I love Arcade Fire. And I love Moonbeam's posts - withouth them this forum would be boring. But you can't seriously have a top 10 of "We Get It" without Moonbeam's dislike for The Suburbs. Examples below...
like the perfect moment for the ventriloquist to quietly leave the stage..
i just made fun of myself...
step 1: MB actually likes the previous records of AF, stupid lil nj clearly doesn't
step 2: MB thinks The Suburbs is underwhelming, nj greedily agrees with him
step 3: chat by chat, stupid lil greedy nj proceeds to convince MB that The Suburbs is taah worst album evvvaaaa
you're quoting all of these MB bash posts and not one single bit of mine... and whyyyyyy....?
echoing some pathetic super villain laughter all along the night rite now..
Kevin loves the shit out of anything belonging in the Animal Collective.
anyone got anything for me?
The idea that Moonbeam is anyone's puppet is laughable... although if anyone is enough of an inscrutably evil genius to pull it off, it's nj.
This thread is awesome! On the topic of The Suburbs, I actually think Anthony did say something along the lines of "we get it already, Moonbeam".
It seems like I have the easiest taste to define here on AMF. I must shout my opinions really loudly. Sorry about that!
And in conclusion, I think this post sums it up perfectly!
Henry loves modern mainstream pop songs that everyone else finds annoying.
What's Harold Wexler gonna do when he finally gets to 3000 ?
I like this thread! I hope no one thinks it is too offensive. I think the heart is in the right place in all these posts.
Should I be proud that I haven't been mentioned yet? Or ashamed because no one dares to?
A couple more observations:
Tim E hates Tom Waits, Pavement and Depeche Mode.
Also, JR lives to tell us about...who's that girl?

we can make this game a little more difficult and learn about each other's tastes
Well, I can feel my beard growing and my flight is being diverted to Kandahar...
Seriously, I wouldn't listen to the Pixies everyday or every week, but I recognize they're a great band. They created a very special universe of their own.
Can't believe "schleuse is from Texas" hasn't come up yet.
Glad to see I haven't been flogging any dead horses.
Everyone except Dan M and nicolas pretend they understand nj, but nothing she has ever said has made any sense.
plus Jandl invented the internet slang...
1 W4NTZ M0AR V4N DIK P4RX, doggammit!!!
(good one, nic, and thanks for skipping the stupid Flips)
and in honor of one of our latest members:
HRS most obviously hates white chick music.
I don't post too often, but when I do, it's pretty much for 2 things:
1. Promoting The National (Stephan helps a lot with this)
2. Dislike of most of the things nj likes
BillAdama is nj's biggest follower. He likes rap but hates rappers.
Harold Wexler has never met a record he didn't like.
Although I secretly hope I am not mentioned here because my taste it too complex to pin down (right...), I know I am not mentioned because I haven't been around for too long (bit more than a year) and I haven't participated in an All-time best album poll yet (which I hope will change soon). I guess it's easier for people to nail down my film preferences.
Henrik is compatible with basically everyone on RYM.
Which one did Schleuse run again?
nj loves her thesaurus
beefsupreme loves action films
Ah, yes, those were good ones. The original ones were done before my time.
Oh, and in my previous post, I was remiss in not giving props to Matt Schroeder and listyguy for reviving bracketology and Survivor, respectively.
I should apologize to listyguy for not getting involved in Survivor II. I still have very ambivalent feelings about the original. But I see it's still going on...maybe I'll check out that thread.
-Nick's lists are coincidentally (and unwittingly) all equal to the ones in AM rank.
-John loves the "bridge" Beatles.
-Daniel really loves Christian rock.
And talking about missing people: where has been Slush?
I would just like to take this opportunity to let you all know how awesome Summerteeth is...
lol... but Jon thanks we get it ...
Believe it or not, on the Wilco boards, I'm known as that "Weird Nirvana fan."
There is suddenly a refreshing interest in international music. Here's hoping the interest will last. Expanding horizons is never a bad idea.
Oh! I have one! Jonathon and I are the only two obsessive "Summerteeth" fans on the AMF.
nj is the only guy, with my very poor english, I'm never understand...never ! I don't even know what language he uses
Yeah, thanks, we get it... YOUR vote would have changed the results of the entire poll, HAD YOU VOTED. But, see, the problem is... YOU DIDN'T VOTE!
Henrik had mentioned my obvious one.

Maybe we can make a new thread with top 10 (or 5 or 3) and bottom 10 for each of us for knowing who is the most acclaimed and most hated artists in AM forum.
With al the statistician here, maybe it's simple to make a rule for this ?
nj likes posting about how she is too cool to post in this forum
