What other music forums do you guys read and contribute to?

I was about to link to an interesting forum post from ?uestlove in here but i thought better of it as no one in here would have been slightly interested so i posted it elsewhere.

It kind of made me wonder where the rest of the people on here post since the scope of what you can actually talk about here is pretty limited due to the lack of people willing to post and the varying tastes of everyone here.

I check out the Dubstep Forum, Slam forum, Miscreat, Soulstrut, Hollertronix and a couple of others sporadically.

What are you folks looking at?

When I was in a band and putting on gigs I used to use UGS, HUBL, Jockrock and Alternative Nation.

Only skim read them from time to time now though.

I sometimes read dogsonacid but it really is just a load of juvenile stoner pish.

I also read emocorner when dogsonacid board-raided it.

I used to use UGS quite often, rarely do so now, due to it being dire. Used to read the guitar techniques (magazine) forum before it was changed to/merged with musicradar.com. Sometimes lurk on the Guthrie Govan forum.

I used to be a regular on Punktastic, but I got banned - twice actually. Once for a practical joke where I posted photographic evidence that made everyone believe I'd shat in a box and posted it to some girl I hated. People didn't realise it was't actual human waste, but melted cooking chocolate and kidney beans, and it never even had a stamp on it. Good times.

And the second time for threatening to shitkick some lad for publically announcing some pretty nasty gripes about me from many years ago that didn't need to be brought up.

I love the internet.

I've tried a few but don't really have time. I do find the unofficial virusTI site pretty useful in terms of problem solving when writing music. Other sites are pretty good for this too. Kind of gotten used to all the punks on here and can't really be assed doing this with another site.

As well as on here, I post on Punktastic and Collective-Zine. I get Red Ultra emails from time to time so might well be signed up on a Dons board or something.

Occasionally visit the UndergroundScene and the Edinburgh DIY boards (run by Kingmob and that...I forget the name), too.

czines great for buying records, but a lot the discussion looks like a screenshot of a messenger service or something. UndergroundScene is good to see whats going on in gigwise in the rest of scotland... its a bit dry though, not much goes on, shame.

It was a bit more serious than a slanging match about some media-whore from the Iceland adverts. Given that this fella was an Admin on another forum I posted on, who used to snoop peoples Private Messages. From this he seemed to collate a nice collection of stuff about me I would have preferred to have kept behind closed doors, which he publically aired. Just because he could.

So, y'know.
