  1. Zen Arcade by Husker Du is an absolute must-listen IMO. New Day Rising is actually the better album, but Zen Arcade is just so influential in its own right.
  2. I agree with you, but imagine how it looked to see Jamesy berating and threatening someone who had seemingly done nothing and who didn't even know who Jamesy was? I had no dog in the fight, but it was unsettling to see how Jamesy was kicking off on someone who was an obvious victim of mistaken identity. Then when you get told through friends about how Jamesy's going to jump me if he sees me - it just added to my perception of him taking the internet way too seriously. Like you and Phil say, he wouldn't have done it - but it was surreal to be told this by different people, as it was obvious that he was at least telling people about it. In hindsight, it would have made more sense to go see him and sort it out face to face, but then it all went back to seeing him rage outside Moshulu. I wouldn't have blamed Ben for kicking off for some of the things people said about him, but I always had a lot of respect for him for not doing so. He might have been different among other people, but he was always decent around me, and I could never understand why a certain group of people were always insulting him behind his back. His online persona was one thing, but I always put that down to him being bored and enjoying a good wind-up. Hahaha, you're right, half the site did threaten something like that, but only two people seemingly took it seriously enough to pass threats on through other people. I wonder if anyone did actually physically fight over what was posted on here?
  3. Thinking back, Jamesy didn't do himself or MMW any favours at times. I remember him getting in someone's face outside Moshulu and threatening to give them a hiding, all because of some scene politics. The wise thing to do would have been to sit down with the guy over a beer, but instead he lost the plot and went way over the line. I didn't know the guy, but Jamesy made an absolute arse out of himself in front of a crowd of people. It wasn't the only time he responded with aggression as well - I remember being told by several different people that he was going to kick my head in over what I'd posted on here and that I should watch my back. I don't think he would have, but his temper really did get the better of him at times. I don't doubt his work ethic, but he was the worst example of taking the internet too seriously. Ben on the other hand never got involved in that stuff offline - I remember you'd normally find Ben in Moshulu just quietly drinking, and like you said, he never acted like a prima donna in public. He was also a good guy to a lot of young bands, but he never boasted about it on here or sang his own praises. I always had a lot of respect for him for that, because a lot of scene people were just nasty and spiteful towards young bands.

    What game are you currently playing?

    Hahahaha, that explains everything! Fortnite is just weird, there's no reason whatsoever to pay for anything, yet people spending huge amounts of cash on it. I don't get it.

    What game are you currently playing?

    I've been playing Fortnite: Battle Royale for something to drop quickly in and out of, and it's astonishing how bad the players are. I can finish in the top 10 every time without any effort at all, and usually in the top 5. I'm not even any good at these games, but the other players are just bad.

    Wrestling Thread

    I watched it a few nights ago, and fucking hell, I could barely watch after the first couple of chairshots. I remember loving it at the time, but now? It just made me shudder, knowing how much damage was being done with each one.

    Aberdeen Celebrities!

    Kimmett is living in Fife, ripping people off a joiner as only Roger can do. https://www.yell.com/biz/roofing-joinery-and-renovations-7635150/ I miss the days of being at a party and him turning up unannounced and uninvited. It would almost always end in him a) harassing women and b) getting battered by someone for it.
  8. Peter, have you ever considered starting your own political party in order to take advantage of lavish donations from key supporters?
  9. I suggest Peter should star in a reality TV show.

    Got it in one. What possessed him to walk around with a receding mullet is beyond me!

    Just think how much was deleted too, especially when The Wasteland was binned. I remember plenty of misogynistic incidents that went on too, especially with certain 'musicians' taking advantage of Moshulu's rather...shall we say 'hands-off' approach to ID'ing people.

    Some quality contenders right there, especially Terry Taylor's beautiful mane! Sid did do the business with that mullet-perm combination that few dared to emulate. Yeah, just no.

    That's boring. I'd prefer Top 5 professional wrestler haircuts. 1. Barry Hardy. Top of the list, and for good reason. This badboy never went out of style. 2. The Rockers. Just splendid. Nothing but splendid. 3. Bob "Sparky Plugg" Holly. Look at it, what is more manly than racing cars and that incredible hair? . 4. Rick Rude. Hard as nails and with the hair to prove it. 5. Crush's mullet. Just a two tone work of art. (sorry, bored at work :D)
  14. @Peter Dow Aberdeen I feel rather upset that you haven't taken the time to educate us as to the extent of your conquests in paradise.

    And the use of the comment system attached to them to abuse other members. Mind My Weapon! I actually quite liked Starfall though.
