I'm voting for Brau as well. Fake Edge may have spawned a great interference joke but the thread isn't all that entertaining. It's just one post after another of Brau's meltdown is hilarious. The funniest bit being that all the posters in there have very broad tastes in music.

Plus, DI features this, which is almost impossible to comprehend from this poster now Desert Island Album Game: Grand Final!

I'm glad I didn't mercy rule this. DI deserves some love even though I did not personally vote for it.

No new matches until Monday, probably. This place is slow on the weekend and it's not fair for one match to garner significantly more votes than another. Besides, maybe a couple people will post in LS over the weekend and bury the other polls. The slowness is causing the tournament to pack the top of the forum, which I would feel bad about if anyone still cared about LS.

Actually, having finally read the brau meltdown, I'm kind of surprised that even qualifies as a meltdown. Seems at there are about four or five of us who seem to just as legitimately flip our shit about christgau every half dozen random music threads. Much more name-calling and general animosity seems to ensue. And unless the rest of you are all Facebook buddies, kissing, making up, and/or jerking each other off elsewhere on the net where I'm not around to see it, no one ever apologizes. There were apologies from all sides in that thread, and I don't see how that even ranks when laz goes apeshit everytime someone expresses certain opinions regarding a particular Beatles song--er..I mean piece of music.

If anything, the brau thread is just proof that much more is acceptable and tolerable these days.

The better Fake Edge thread was the one where everyone lost their shit on the mods for the whole thing.

True. I selected one thread, when I suggested this one, to represent the entire debacle.

Can you link to that one? Sounds like an interesting read.

Did anybody save the interviews with Fake Edge that Interference subsequently took down?

I wonder how many PMs were sent to this Fake Edge must be a record for anyone on Interf. Folks baring their souls about how U2's music changed their life, sending links to their demos and so on...all to some spotty teenager. Wowzers, no wonder so many were pissed!

Had to give a throwaway vote to Brau, because it's funny enough that he takes "desert island disc" in a much more serious, almost literal sense than anyone else, but then you've got him, a white guy (a bold guess!) complaining that people don't have enough non-white guy music in their playlists. On a U2 forum.

Yeah, I fucked up. 2 pages in and I'm already far more interested in that second thread.

You could just replace one with the other for future rounds.

Is perhaps most basic idea.

Man, I dunno though. Part of the joke is watching people get fucked over and totally buying it.

I Squirtigo'd the shit out of this tournament starting it so soon. Oh well, it'll turn out fine when it's all said and done.

So much more enjoyable than reading for my two assignments.

What I can't really believe is that the whole Fake Edge thing is sooooo long ago!
