I don't believe anything MadForIt has said is ban-worthy (in a perfect world he'd have gotten the boot by now just for being an insensitive ass), but would it be possible to get a group of us to commit to not responding to anything by him in the future?

Hopefully the silent treatment from enough people will cause him to either disappear, stay out of threads where he's now essentially a troll, or rethink the way he acts on this forum, and hopefully towards other people.

It saddens me that a quote of that evil witch Margaret Thatcher doesn't even elicit a response.

Anyone with me?

I mistakenly thought pointing out that many others feel exactly the same about Oasis as he does about essentially every other band on earth would sorta make him realize that, "OMG, people are different and like and dislike different things!". It did nothing other than egg him on though, so I kinda feel bad I stooped down to his level. Sadly, I actually enjoy the first two Oasis albums, but people like him and LastEdgeOnEarth sure do a great job of completely turning people off of the things they think are great. As LJT said, I too never understand people who think it's appropriate to repeatedly piss on everyone else's parades. You'd think someone who has absolutely nothing good to say about any music other than Oasis wouldn't even come to a "general music discussion" forum.

In summary, I'm in. I'm even tempted to put the kid on ignore. Interference does still have that, don't they?

I didn't even think about that. I told myself I'd never do that, but it would certainly lessen the temptation to want to respond to a bunch of idiotic comments.

I just can't believe someone would actually type "I don't care about anyone except for my friends and family" and expect anything but contempt. And if he's not being serious, then he's a troll and should at least get a warning.

You mean I haven't turned you off to Starflyer 59 yet?

I would never have participated at all had I known what we were really dealing with. I should venture out beyond 4 basic forums now and then so I know who these people are but it's scary out there.

I was laughing my ass off, though.

So yeah, I'm in.

Why not listen to songs that make you want to do something with your life rather than think "gosh, the world is a terrible place" - Radiohead caters for people who are depressed

I like Radiohead but they are massivley overrated - its clear from their lyrics and whiny frontman they need some Prozac
To be fair this is how I felt about Radiohead before I became a fan, I thought they were an ultra-depressing band, pointless to listen to for anyone remotely depressed should it make them even more so.

Am I always in the mood to listen to Radiohead's occasionally morbid imagery and self-loathing? Of course not. But it doesn't make them any less of a band for indulging in that. Furthermore, the first impression you get from a set of lyrics can often be tinted by the music behind them. Study the lyrics and you'll find there's more to them than you originally assumed; this depth is what makes Radiohead such a great band.
This post wins. The reason I love Radiohead now is solely because of the depth. There is incredible substance behind every song/album Radiohead's made that I've heard. Yeah, the music may be a little disconsolate at times, but I've found that there's always something to be solaced from their music. Even Thom's admitted this.

Take songs like Airbag, for example. I think that's great imagery. A song about "that wonderful, positive emotion you feel when you've just failed to have a car accident... jump out of the car and scream, 'I'm alive, I'm alive!'" No Surprises? Not a lot of hope in the lyrics there. Beguilingly pretty song however. Weird Fishes? "I hit the bottom and escape..." is evocative and cathartic for me, at least. The end of Videotape, "because I know today has been the most perfecct day I've ever seen."

This is a great example, and I feel the same. I couldn't go and listen to BD if it contrasted too much with my mood.

Why?

I just received the HOC recycled plastic t-shirt I ordered.

They sent the wrong size.

I don't think I can even get it over my head.

Last night was a lot of fun

I must say a big thanyou to U2popmofo, impy13 and phillyfan26 whom without such fun would not have been possible

I make one comment on In Rainbows where i said i LIKE it, yet it descends into a 6 page post fest - i dont even mention the O word yet everyone else brings it up

Same time next week?

First off, kudos on bolding their names

Secondly you did not make one comment or can you not count along with not read?

why was it so painful to say i think In Rainbows wipes the floor with the 2 previous efforts?

That was the ONE comment I initially made

"talk about over analysing things
9 parts for one album!
I would not expect anything less from Radiohead fans
To be fair i like In Rainbows - better than Amnesiac and Hail to the Theif which were pretty shit"

The rest was just reactionary
