1 Name: Elkkun : 2012-11-23 11:09 ID:O0XnAyZO

It's been a while since I've checked this board, and all the posts seem to be from 2009-2011...

So-- is anybody out there?

2 Name: Anonymous : 2012-12-26 13:33 ID:12mdZScS

The site only gets 20 views a day, unfortunately. People stopped coming about a year ago because of how slow it was, and how much spam was piling up.

3 Name: Dr.Natas : 2015-04-14 10:34 ID:pe6lCUgl

What is the most popular board on this list on the left? 4chan?
Is there any place where older (20+) are hanging and posting some old school stuff ? Everything else seems to be infested with kids and their sense of humor and "intellectualism". I mean those stories and trends they talk about (mainly on 4chan) ... its beyond any sense of anything , spoiled demented people with too much time on their hands and too little brain and ambitions in their skull.

4 Name: Dr.Natas : 2015-04-14 10:38 ID:pe6lCUgl

Holy fuck I just noticed the last post was 3 years ago. Its somewhat awesome that this thread still hangs here...

5 Name: Anonymous : 2017-02-18 13:56 ID:GiEP7jf1

Even though there are general chat boards like this one and so on, the main topic for this place is for fan made works, which is not something to terribly popular. The only other reason for people to come here would be if there was activity, even if there was only a new post every week, people would get excited.

I bet this place could have snowballed if it had rss features when it was built: that way people wouldn't manually check for new posts and when they see it in their feed they might be inclined to post, even if the thing in their feed was spam.

More websites need overboards, or for some boards to be trimmed. I know that it gets thrown around a lot but these places really aren't what they used to be; the userbase is spread too thinly over many sites (many of which I'm sure get the same posters anyway). It doesn't make sense to compound that by spreading your site users even thinner.
As you said though this place isn't really a standard textboard.

Does anyone still write/read Buffy and Angel fanfics? (5)

1 Name: Misty1986 : 2009-11-13 19:49 ID:qJARdSpa

It's been 6 years since the shows ended and I still love it. I know there are other shows out there that are have better graphics and stuff. But I loved watching Buffy and Angel. Once it ended, I loved reading other people's fanfics on ff.net

What I want to know is, are there still people loving this show and reading the fics or has the love gone? Died down coz Twilight & True Blood has taken over (APPARANTLY)?

2 Name: Nadine : 2009-11-13 22:52 ID:N3DZIa1G

i will read one now and again :) i actually watched ALL of buffy a couple of week ago, me and my friend decided it had been a while and sat and watced them.

Buffy was a world of its own as was angel, and twilight and trueblood wont change that. Those shows are more mainstream now.

3 Name: Misty1986 : 2009-11-14 09:46 ID:qJARdSpa

I know what you mean.. I'm watching the old seasons as their on repeat at the moment and I lve watching them... But I have a feeling soon they'll stop showing the repeats too. Which is so sad as Buffy was one of the biggest shows I watched when I was in school.

1 Name: Princess Tiger : 2009-10-17 09:58 ID:eoarKs/f

...No, I'm not inviting you to watch a film with me. This thread is just like the others what's your favorite film? Do you know pratically all the words to it? Do you laugh at every joke, even though you've seen it a million times and knew it was coming? Yeah you get the idea. Do not be ashamed if you think it's lame. Kids movies are among the awesomest ever. Oh and mine's either Mulan or Johnny English (I'm a little undecided). So you know I'm fourteen and evryone in school thinks they're cool and watch stuff like Superbad, I couldn't care less and haven't even seen it, so yeah...
On one last note, in the words of Bough (JE)

All Star Wars, Rambo movies, Rocky movies, Chicago, walk the line, Cats, Both Ace Venturas, From Hell, Original Willy Wonka and the Chocolate factory, Labyrinth, POTC, LOTR, and most other musicals....my brain is abit dead right now or I'd be able to think haha.

28 Name: MaloryCullen14 : 2009-11-02 10:33 ID:ciUAM4yG

Twilight, harry potter series (not the new one so much), St trinians (know all the words to the theme).

29 Name: Harbinger of Doom : 2009-11-02 12:30 ID:G/V9XILn

>>28
I thought the newest HP film was the best. And the scene Where Harry chases bella from the burning burrow and he and Ginny are surrounded? It happens in a fic iv read somwhere, im sure of it. They are using fanfic in the movies!!! O_O
It was awesome. I knew what would happen from the moment the burrow caught on fire. xD

30 Name: E.Blade : 2009-11-11 07:25 ID:5jQSrEDN

Any movie that originates from a book is usually nowhere near as good as the book. Honestly twilight was horrible to me in both instances but on to my list.

-Armegeddon
-Space jam

  • Resident evil series( love the game)

-The departed
-Mulan
-V for vendetta
-Rocky series

  • and finally my all time favorite I don't know why

Mean Girls - i know it's pretty sad, and anywhere else, I CAN'T STAND Lindsay Lohan, but it just cracks me up at how they take thie crap out of all the 'plastic' girls in American schools.
Have loved Rachel McAdams ever since :D

35 Name: Tenshi-chan : 2009-11-29 13:56 ID:V7iePjoV

It's hard to narrow it down but out of the films that i've seen that i still occasionally remember and enjoy thinking about are:

  1. Alice in Wonderland (loved it since i watched it in my childhood) ^^
  2. Pirates of the Caribbean Series
  3. Johnny English (Agreed, is awesome)
  4. Lion King II (I prefer it to the prequel)

worst film or anime? (49)

1 Name: moonphase : 2010-05-19 14:41 ID:TzmuqCMr

I saw 'Wild Child' the other day. I had low expectations...but...my gawd is was awful. I mean, so, so awful it was painful in some parts (example- at one point, they're at a school disco and the Head girl puts on some ahem 'urban' music. Th protagonist does this really lame dance, and all the up tight English are like "woooow!")

I was wondering what other films people hate, and why. Oh, and I have yet to see an anime or cartoon that I hate, but was interested.

40 Name: warper : 2010-08-21 06:25 ID:WxPCTfsu

No, I know about it (saw previews for it when I saw A-Team...awesome movie btw), the only reason it's not in the list for me is because it hasn't come out YET...when it does, then it's on the list...Seriously, I had friends that made me sit through several episodes and the movies...that was the second most traumatizing experience in my TV viewing exploits.

41 Name: YamiTenshi : 2010-08-21 09:30 ID:fK02PNjm

I still don't see the point of it being in 3D.

Dare I ask what the most traumatizing TV experience was?

42 Name: warper : 2010-08-21 11:31 ID:WxPCTfsu

Being forced to sit through a all the current parodies movies of the time (this was in 2006-ish), (Several Scary Movies, Date Movie, Superhero movie and another I can't remember), the First Borat, on a charter bus, and then at the hotel, during a NJROTC trip because my friends wouldn't let me watch my anime until they all saw their movies...SEVERAL TIMES!!!!

43 Name: YamiTenshi : 2010-08-21 19:09 ID:fK02PNjm

I'm sorry. No one should have to view that much cinematic garbage.

44 Name: warper : 2010-08-21 19:11 ID:WxPCTfsu

Never did get to watch my anime on that trip :_(

45 Name: YamiTenshi : 2010-08-24 12:58 ID:fK02PNjm

That is truly unfortunate.

46 Name: warper : 2010-08-24 13:15 ID:z/zmOcrW

Oh, hopefully this is the last of my list:

The entire Saw series (and this time I WILL include the unreleased upcoming 3D verision (also known as Saw VII I believe)).

47 Name: woosh : 2010-10-06 00:40 ID:jfSKh5CX

lol, I see I'm not the only one who dislikes Eragon, I watched the movie first, and I was like Hell yeah give me part 2. but a few weeks later I read the books and when I noticed how different it was I decided to watch the movie again and compare (nasty habbit of mine). the more I watched it, the more I disliked it. the only things I did like were Saphirra and Murtagh, well and the way the movie is made, not the storyline. that was awful T_T every movie should stick to the bookXD

48 Name: Mikano Zirake : 2010-10-09 23:18 ID:QIftb06i

Fullmetal Alchemist: Conqueror of Shamballa.

As much as I love FMA, the movie just sucked. Half the important characters DIE, the gate leads to freaking Germany during WWII, and Edward and Winry don't end up together!!! It's such a depressing movie.

Weird and Embarrasing Fears (158)

1 Name: Tenshi-chan : 2009-12-12 15:09 ID:xcJagiWd

Anybody have any fears or phobias that are maybe really weird or either embarrasing and not easy to tell others?

I have about three off the top of my head:

3. Ravens - It seems that a lot of horror books and movies i saw when i was younger mentioned ravens. And so whenever i see a raven or hear one i get goosebumps and if i'm outside will run away. :| It's kind of embarrasing...

2. The Ocean - I don't mind swimming in the pool but i refuse to swim in the sea. I hate places i can't see the bottom and i'm always scared something will come out and get me from under the sand. :S

AND 1. Touching People - Yeah, it's a weird phobia that people know about. I'm fine with touching family members but when it comes to stranges or close friends, i always feel tense when in near proximity to them and if my friends try to hug me i'll quickly flinch and dart away.

Weirdly enough, i'm fine with just 'normal friends' touching me but when it comes to friends who are 'closer' than that then i go frantic. I think my friends are a bit upset that im fine with classmates hugging me but not them.

149 Name: Neil Dunsmore : 2011-06-13 17:59 ID:iGMwR1hE

1) Losing either my hearing, eyesight or both. I just couldn't imagine life without either one. My favorite things in life involve me being able to see/hear. If I lose either one of those things, I'm screwed.

2) Asking out a girl who may be nothing like me: Yeah, although I have dealt with a break-up before, I keep searching for who I would consider my soulmate in the hopes that we'll remain a couple forever.

3) Raggedy Ann Dolls... GAH, THOSE SOUL-PIERCING EYES!!!!!!! (Though I actually like the Richard Williams film starring Ann and Andy... odd...)

150 Name: Anon : 2011-06-17 12:06 ID:9f3LSpQf

151 Name: GirlInTheShadows : 2011-06-17 16:50 ID:KIwqliAe

I have a horrible fear of seagulls. I can't even go to the beach without having a panic attack.

And I'm scared of oranges :/

Tall people also scare me, for some reason.

152 Name: Regas : 2011-06-22 16:45 ID:j69KbDOj

...bathroom windows.

I hate it, and absolutely refuse to go pee if it isn't shut locked and covered in some way shape or form. I don't know why though...

relationships.

for some reason the thought of someone being to into my life and shit bothers me...alot.

the dark outside.

only outside though...

153 Name: KaidaChan414 : 2011-06-26 22:32 ID:F6P0h8Vd

Even though I hate hugs for year several of my best friend just don't get that so I've gotten some what used to hugs. I fear open water like oceans and lakes but pools don't bother me. I fear small spaces and people being really close too.

154 Name: thecrimson : 2011-07-09 18:38 ID:DW7pxfpK

1.) Zombies
2.) the dark. I sleep with my tv on and muted. Though that is connected with the zombie thing because of The Walking Dead.
3.) Showers. I just freak out when it hits my face. I've been getting over it recently, thank goodness. I still don't let it hit my face, though >.<

4.) My bathroom window. that's connected to zombies and shaun of the living dead.

155 Name: Anake14 : 2011-07-27 13:43 ID:Fh9s/CEE

One of my best friends was afraid of girls. He would totally spaz out if it was any other girl aside from hime-sama or me, but it was really funny, especially at school. Another weird fear discovered through my friends, Flowers. How the hell that one worked out when none of them are allergic I don't know.

156 Name: Elkkun : 2011-12-15 04:38 ID:88/a7+PH

This is going to sound incredibly obvious but
I'm scared of scary things |D.

Okay, to be more specific, I'm scared of anything that I can see close up- for example I watched an episode of Ao Oni...
I couldn't sleep for two-three nights straight. I kept seeing that face and I heard breathing in my ear whenever I turned my back to the door... I have a bad overactive imagination of a night time.
I had to get a lamp because I didn't want to walk across my room to turn the light off //sob.

1 Name: Carmzziiee : 2010-03-22 06:34 ID:Zcrhay3f

....Don't You hate it when you get Favourite Sories/Authors and Not Reviews?
It's o annoying!!! If you can click the Favourite Story/Author button you can write awsome in a simple box.

76 Name: Elkkun : 2011-05-28 03:26 ID:btZTcFFK

>>75 amazing weird... it's like they're long lost triplets, and are on the same brainwave! -legasp!- that explains EVERYTHING.

On another note, I think it's alright to get favourite story/author alerts, it lets me know people are reading it. c:

77 Name: KnightNinja13 : 2011-06-10 01:08 ID:om+Ulll4

It does get a bit annoying. At least I know someone somewhere is reading one of my stories.....I'd still like to know why. (saying it was really good doesn't necessarily do me any good)

78 Name: Grapes : 2011-07-18 03:39 ID:NNspSD+Y

I love giving men reviews my favourite is:

I hate your story, its bad speling and punctation. please delete it or i will spontaniously combust

79 Name: moonphase : 2011-07-24 09:26 ID:IjwC+Zbk

>>78 Why do you love giving just men reviews?

80 Name: Neil Dunsmore : 2011-07-24 15:07 ID:kI5i6nTb

>>79 I think Grapes is implying that all men overreact and all girls know how to handle flaming... if that's the implication, I take offense to that.

81 Name: Marth : 2011-07-24 18:56 ID:nRiqMbNQ

>>80 Also, it's <i>hilariously</i> wrong. If Grapes has never had a female writer go apeshit over a review, she needs to flame more female writers. It's not that hard to find the crazies. :D

82 Name: Anake14 : 2011-07-25 22:11 ID:g8oEPI1T

Honestly it shouldn't matter because you know they like it, but still a polite, 'this is good, keep it going!' would be nice every once in a while. I don't review often, but that's because I sound like I'm repeating myself. As for reviews I've never been flamed, so I'm kind of waiting for someone to do it...Anyone here willing to read a story and find something wrong with it? (Other than grammar or spelling please I have a personal guard who takes a dictionary and hits me over the head for each thing I get wrong and am too lazy to fix.)
>>81 everyone is a tiny bit crazy, if they weren't they'd never be able to handle reality. Actually I think reality is crazier than most people could ever be, I mean think of the politicians...shudders never mind that was a scary thought...

83 Name: enchantedsleeper : 2012-09-28 12:38 ID:EREJ/Cv8

Personally, I think a review reading "awsome" is a waste of even the two seconds that it takes to write it. So in that case I would rather just have a +fav and a follow. I do like to get reviews but only if the reader has taken the time to write multiple words about my story.

84 Name: enchantedsleeper : 2012-09-28 12:39 ID:EREJ/Cv8

(Not to mention that "awesome" has two 'e's in it)

Why Do People Obsess So Much Over Twilight? (140)

1 Name: Tenshi-chan : 2009-11-29 13:58 ID:EwHlMaZX

Just to say this first, i'm not trashing or bad-mouthing the books (i've read plenty of other books that are worse than that and i wonder how they were even made into books).

I've read the books but... What's so good about them?
Everwhere i go, all i ever hear about is the series. And it didn't bother me at first, but it is starting to annoy me (again, not bad mouthing the books).

I just want people to tell me why the books are so good, i mean there's plenty of other books previous to the series which involve a human and vampire falling in love. I'm curious as to why this particular series has so many fans.

Would people tell me please? :o I want to hear your thoughts.

P.S - Please don't just reply with the whole 'Edwards is so hot OMG!' etc etc.

131 Name: Elkkun : 2011-05-28 03:21 ID:X1STo1Yi

Just to add something else to this thread.

If you find your boyfriend watching you sleep, and calling you beautiful, yeah that's romantic and blush-worthy. If it's your crush, and you actually INVITED them to sleep over, fair enough that's kinda cute, and could start a relationship.

In other words, if you've INVITED them in, it's alright with me, even if they told me they needed to watch somebody asleep to fall asleep themself c: (yeahIdkwhoactuallydoesthatbutitsoundsnice)

However, if they BREAK INTO YOUR HOUSE to watch you sleep. FTSh- I'd scream, which'd wake up my parents, my dad would beat the sh-t outta them, and my mum would phone the police c: I love my family.

I prefered RPatz when he was a hero of Harry Potter :c (he practically died for HP <3, if that isn't heroic and plot-worthy [and soul moving] IDK what is...)

Can you imagine waking up to see a ghost staring at you? XD

132 Name: EdwardIsHellaCute : 2011-07-01 22:27 ID:PiOt4mSW

UH, If You Were A Girl , You Would Understand Why So Many Of Us Obsess Over Him. Ugh , He's So Damn Cute.

133 Name: Anonymous : 2011-07-02 08:04 ID:ysYfeEQK

>>131 Perhaps, then, the appeal is that it's safe? It's like the whole boyfriend-watches-you-sleeping-is-so-romaaaaaantic thing, but just more thrilling and rebellious. Bella knows the eternal gorgeous teenage boy Edward from school and some pretty pointless chitchat, and so knows that he's responsible and well-trained and isn't gonna 'do anything' to her even if she begs him. On her knees. Wearing nothing. So even if she was completely as his mercy, she's still safe?
(DISCLAIMER: Do not believe any of the lessons you get from this book, for Smeyer is a twat. In real life if boy, even a gorgeous teenage one, breaks into your house it is sooo not to watch you sleep.)

134 Name: Elkkun : 2011-07-04 07:49 ID:X1STo1Yi

>>132 cough cough, most of us are girls. unless you're trolling... I can't tell the difference anymorreee DX.

>>133 perhaps it's that yes... Like the audience, she's only ever heard him say that he's dangerous, but never actually SEEN him be dangerous ONCE. Infact, he's been pretty stupid and friendly around her (for most the part). Over here in England, if a guy insults you in a way that's to you etc he fancies you, which is terrible in itself, but you can tell they do it 'cause they like you, rather than the other way around. But anyway, since she's never really been shown he's dangerous, she might know that he won't really do anything too bad to her.
Since she knows that he likes her-- because of the 'signals' he's been giving.

That or we're just attempting to swim deeper down in the kiddy pool- aka, we're thinking too much.

135 Name: Anonymous : 2011-07-06 06:07 ID:jIyRvbXj

>>134 ...if a guy insults you it's because he fancies you... That sounds... fruitful.
You basically got my point though, Smeyer's all about: "Well he COULD pin me to the bed and ravish me senseless, but he's well trained so he's not going to until we're married and ready"
I suppose it is a little psycoanalytical of us, but I think that's why Twilight has such a large but specific audience. People (I won't limit it to women or an age group) seeking a kind of sexual adventure.
(Out of interest, is this site too young for that kind of discussion? =3 If so, please tell me now.)

136 Name: Krazy kitty : 2011-07-08 13:45 ID:Bs0hs7MF

Twilight seems really stupid to me. I kinda feel like jacob black is a rip off of Harry Potters sirius black, First off the last name is still Black and they're both werewolves, honestly.

137 Name: Krazy kitty : 2011-07-08 13:45 ID:Bs0hs7MF

Twilight seems really stupid to me. I kinda feel like jacob black is a rip off of Harry Potters sirius black, First off the last name is still Black and they're both werewolves, honestly.

138 Name: rachelcabbit : 2011-08-26 16:13 ID:Xnkfp5pR

>>136 lol, no, I believe that Sirius Black is an animagi, and takes the form of a big black DOG, not a wolf of any kind, and especially not a werewolf. Though he is friends with a werewolf.

Also, they are otally different ages, take totally different roles in the stories, and have totally different personalities.

So the only way meyer 'rips off' Harry potter is that the two characters share the same surname. Which really, isn't an uncommon surname either.

I hate twilight as much as the next anti, but you need to fight it with true facts not made-up stuff XD

139 Name: moonphase : 2011-08-28 06:02 ID:dEW5reO1

This girl goes into some detail, critically analysing twilight and why fans enjoy such negative characters so much.

I think some of you (if you have the time) may be interested in her 5 peice segment called 'Validation- desire to be dominated' peice. The first part is just a run down of what she'll be saying and is just over a minute, so you can watch that and decide if it is worth watching. But I thought it was interesting.

There is another series of video's by a young girl called Melina Pendulum, she does reviews of books and films and tv series. She goes into why she cannot respect Meyer as an author and reviews Bree Tanner and the Twilight films. Here's one of her reviews (on the Eclipse film)

Reviews that don’t make sense. Do they drive anyone else mad? (182)

1 Name: juanafever : 2010-01-05 17:50 ID:D5qZCEX+

I understand the constructive criticism and people telling you that there is something you could do to improve (my spelling mostly, it sucks sometimes I honestly admit) they point out something in plot twist that you keep forgetting and so on. All that is nice and good. That way we all improve.
But how to react when you get a review stating very firmly that it hates the main ship of the story and the story itself is crap and can hardly be read and so on and so forth ... submitted on CHAPTER 27???? Honestly! Who reads this far just to give a useless feedback? The way I see it you don’t like =you don’t read. But the best was still to come. Guess what? Couple of weeks later... when will you update? .... The same person! The same ff.net ID! Probably forgot to logout before sending the review! I don’t think I ever laughed so hard in my life.
Anyone else had reviews that just don't make sense?

They weren't ashamed. That was so obviously sarcasm it's not even funny.

174 Name: RayRay : 2010-03-17 18:20 ID:V3vx5TQ3

Doesn't come across as sarcasm, genuinely sounds like they're trying to avoid something, so I really hope you just left it there. There isn't a point in getting into a review war with someone you know.

My friend had a case where someone read what she had completed of the fic, and then told her that it was OOC, that she didn't like the fact that it wasn't set in the same thing that it didn't have enough of the trio (Harry Potter fanfiction btw)...

She was fairly rude about it though, so my friend wrote back saying like, you know, why did you read so much of it then, it was clear from chapter one that it was going to be this way, so you know.. I made it clear. I think you were a little harsh and I'd like to say that if you're going to be like that then I'd rather you didn't review again..

The girl actually apologised though, explained what she had meant a little better, and then conceded that although it was well writtten, it just wasnt her thing. Said good work on the writing skills and said she wouldn't be continuing to read.

I think she was lucky that she got a reader that actually apologised for coming across the way she did though, she had another person who would review every chapter, on the day it was posted, saying variations of:

yeah, sounds to me like the person felt genuinly kinda silly, so I would let it go. I've never had any really nonsensical reviews, esp like the one RayRay pointed out. I am more careful when I review now, I try and make them as clear and (if necessary) as constructive as possible.

176 Name: soul surfing : 2010-03-21 13:45 ID:88+LFp7W

What annoys me incredibly is when they spell things ridiculously, so you can barely tell what they're saying.
Example:
"Ehm, some parts are really cousin"

That actually is from one of my stories, and I was tempted to e-mail them something sarcastic. Instead, I ignored it. Works fine. :D

177 Name: Fee : 2010-03-21 13:55 ID:DvJy6Zf0

>>176 Did the reviewer mean confusing? That's the only word I can get out of that.

178 Name: Lupa Dracolis : 2010-03-21 14:49 ID:8g/eAeXB

>>176 Some parts are really like my cousin's? As in a cousin who writes fanfic?

179 Name: Carmzziiee : 2010-03-22 06:30 ID:NthUXmD4

Lol. I totally agree. I may not be the best speller, but I once got an inbox critizing my grammar on one of my stories. It just made me lol so hard becase:
a) They spellt Idiot- idot Grammar- grammer ect.
b) Eg. you idot. carnt you now how 2 spell a simpl word.
And he/ she critizises me?

1 Name: Sara : 2010-01-11 15:31 ID:Zhh5Ee6j

I've been listening to the same old crap forever, so can any recommend any good music?

Open to any suggestions :)

16 Name: Sara : 2010-01-16 17:32 ID:Zhh5Ee6j

i guess i was pretty vague!

>>12
at the moment been listening to a lot of kasabian and snow patrol and muse.

-----

18 Name: LASER : 2010-01-16 19:17 ID:MCQu53kE

Kasabian? there is hope for you yet

I'd say Radiohead definately and you might want to check out Modest Mouse (probably their ealier stuff) The Coral (newer stuff) and possibly Elbow even though I think they're kind of sucky, still some of their stuff is good.

oh yeah and Keane if you're into Snow Patrol kind of stuff, personally I think steamy shit > Jonas Brothers > Snow Patrol but thats just my opinion, enjoy

19 Name: KiteRunner : 2010-01-17 04:43 ID:6MrwH7pa

>>17 Wow, somebody has actually heard of Idlewild? I think you deserve a high five.

How about Stereophonics? Kings of Leon and The Pigeon Detectives you might also like, although you've probably heard of all of those already.

20 Name: Anonymous : 2010-01-17 06:28 ID:hHFs47aj

>>18

"Jonas Brothers > Snow Patrol"????????? That is shocking!
lol To each his own :)

21 Name: Princess Tiger : 2010-01-17 06:35 ID:MAbJrlGb

If you listen to Snow Patrol, I'll agree with >>18, try Keane and Coldplay fit in that genre too. Also try Counting Crows (August and Everything After is brilliant).
Where 'old' music is concerned try The Kinks, The Beatles, The Beach Boys, Deacon Blue and The Jam, they're all really good and fit in with the different genres you seem to have picked.

Ooh, and The Temper Trap and The Genuine Articles, the latter aren't at all big, but they're really quite good, look them up on MySpace.

22 Name: Crowbar Gazoolies : 2010-01-19 12:39 ID:pVTxyKdf

Im more of a Marmaduke Duke fan-their stuff is a little strange at first but it grows on ya.
Melt-Banana are neat too. none fo their songs make any sense but awesome just the same.
Friendly Fires are another band that I'm crazy about right now. Photobooth and Skepeton boy are a couple of my fave songs of theirs.
Joy Division are pure awesomeness. They've lasted through the ages for a reason, you know :]
Enslaved are great to had band to.
Zack Wylde
Evile
Avenged Sevenfold (older stuff is better)
Mindless Self Indulgence (again, older stuff is better)
Empire of the Sun- sound a bit like MGMT but are really rather good.
Florence and the Machine
Cold War Kids -totally unique in their style

Some Japanese bands!

... So, I'm learning to get to grips with this site. Is there anything I need to know about how things are done here? I don't want to make a fool of myself...

2 Name: moonphase : 2011-08-29 12:03 ID:jHhrk2JR

Hmmm, it takes ages to post, so try not to keep clicking or you'll post the same thing about 80 times.

That's all I can think of. Welcome to the site.

3 Name: Anonymous : 2011-08-29 15:18 ID:W/OWVOgj

Yep, you only need to hit the reply button once and then wait a minute for something to happen.

Also, if you want to start a thread about fanfiction or whatever, please check the listed threads to see if it's already been done. There's some old ones in 'All threads'. You probably know this, but if you post on that thread you can bump it up to this here main page.

Finally, try and keep the topic related to the board your on, so comics don't go in Offline Meetings kinda thing. You're more likely to get a response that way.

I think that's it. Hello there! =)

4 Name: Regas : 2011-08-30 12:26 ID:wvFW8zzv

they pretty much covered it.

Welcome!

5 Name: Marth : 2011-08-30 21:47 ID:9fCYEC4u

You may wanna pick a name, since your ID changes between threads, but that's not strictly necessary.

6 Name: TV Geek : 2011-09-01 19:50 ID:0MyTfmk8

You can also make your name a link, like your fanfic profile, or something. If you can be bothered.

This also means that you can use the 'link-in-your-name' thing to play practical jokes on people. Not that that's something I would ever do.

WELCOME!
