Not trying to be ironic. I logged into my phone as RobotlandGirl a month ago or so when we were discussing alters in the Random Music Thread. And I've been too lazy to log out. I figured everyone knew that RG = HG, but apparently not.

I'm sorry - I shouldn't have said it was bullshit. I should have said it was silly or, at the very least, incorrect.


Edit: wait, that's really you? I'm confused right now. So you weren't calling this whole part of the forum as "hipsters" who don't like anything popular? Did you really mean it in relation to liking U2?

Because honestly, that changes the whole context, and I wouldn't have even responded at all. When someone who doesn't appear to hang out here much comes in and accuses us of being hipsters (see that Darkness thread), it bugs me. But you obviously know us and know we have varied tastes and wouldn't be all "oh, they're just hipsters here, they hate everything," which is how that post read to me.

Now I have to make this face, because I'm so confused:

I'd never seen the other name before and so it was pretty out of the blue - thought someone from EYKIW was just coming in for a B&C poster bashfest. My mistake.

Something similar happened when they pulled out One Tree Hill towards the end of 360. I can't really think of anyone on here, expect perhaps IWB, who expresses no fondness for U2.
I disagree. On the occasions where I speak with other interferencers off the board (in person, via phone, what have you), the anti-U2 flavor of B&C always comes up. It's not horrible, but it's there. In other words, it's bad enough for people to hyperbolically state that they're cringing at the thought of new U2 record, but not bad enough to stifle excitement when the band pulls off something cool or prevent people from admitting that they still love the band.

The mockery of the folks in EYKIW speaks to that vibe. Many of us used to be that obsessed U2 fan or still can be in certain aspects (setlists, traveling all over the see U2, etc.), so it's funny to me that we often mock those fans so mercilessly.

IF U2 announces a new album next year, I'll be excited, especially if it's produced by Danger Mouse. However, my dread is another year of them being coy and nothing.

I hope you one day research your family tree and discover that Gary Bettman is a close relative.

Every day I....die again and again...I'm reborn.

Every day I...have to find the courage to walk out into the street. With arms out. Got a love you can't defeat. Neither down nor out. There's nothing you have that I need.
