can it get totally trashed, because the band member is anonymous, and he included some songs by little known bands...that turn out to be u2's new stuff? that everyone hates on. and then loves when they find out it's u2.

Oh, absolutely. Larry will fill it with absolute shit songs that everyone hates, and the bashing that results will completely destroy his psyche.

Basically, LM is a rabble rouser who's radical views of DI's rules & code of conduct have become a threat to the very fabric of the game and could lead to the detonation of the Doomsday Machine

You say it is against the rules, and yet to fail to explain why, when I have pointed out - as the author of the rules - that it is within both letter and spirit. For a song to be permissible, it must meet the following criteria:

1. It must be officially released. Let's break this down. "Officially" means it is released by the artist or with the explicit permission of the artist. Therefore, bootlegs - even those implicitly allowed by the artist - are out. "Released" means that it has been made available for the listening public to access, without any limitation to the format - vinyl, CD, MP3, FLAC, whatever. Online releases have always been allowed, and playlists - including in this current edition - have featured tracks only available from MySpace, iTunes, or the artist's website. I myself have used Pure Reason Revolution's Victorious Cupid (MySpace; Prog Island Supertracklist) and Sörskogen's Mordet i Grottan (artist's website; DI III). LM's tracks will very satisfactorily fulfill this requirement.

2. It must not be a repeat of an earlier artist. LM's using four unique artists, thus he satisfies this rule too. You may say "BUT HE'S IN ALL OF THEM!" To which I say - are you unfamiliar with the concept of a musician having multiple projects? If you employ this objection, then you must ban me for using Porcupine Tree and Incredible Expanding Mindfuck, both Steven Wilson projects - IEM is SW only, and the same goes for all PT studio material up to and including The Sky Moves Sideways. My next playlist at this stage has a track from the SW-only PT era, and an IEM track. What do you say to that?

And you completely ignored my point about PT's origins being fundamentally the same to what LM's doing.

If you ban LM's songs, then you by extension have to ban anything by Porcupine Tree pre-Signify (funny how you used a pre-Signify track this time, eh?), anything by Eluvium (who phanan used), anything by Martin Phillipps (who I used), etc. Your logic is going to eradicate just about any diversity because of your peculiar definition of a "real" artist. LM's not a real artist because he posts here? Is Andrew not a real artist because he posts here too?

I think through this post and my earlier one, I have thoroughly dismissed your untenable position.

And any attempts to disarm it will result in the annihilation of the human race.

Larry's perfect, given his collection of Westlife CDs!

You're at a bringing-the-laughs creative peak right now, you realise?

1. Westlife - "Queen Of My Heart" - World Of Our Own
2. Spice Girls - "Viva Forever" - Spiceworld
3. U2 - "October" - October
4. Duran Duran - "White Lines" - Thank You

Khan will appreciate the reference, I'm sure.

I'll like it.
What poppy obscure Kiwi artists are we talking here? The Chills, Able Tasmans, The Clean, Headless Chickens, Goblin Mix, etc., or are you not into the Dunedin Sound/Flying Nun scene?

[longwindednerd]

Nowadays, since conductors/guards tend to be a thing of the past, it's usually a warning - say when a train is approaching a level crossing, to alert motorists to the train's approach. So it could mean there are more idiots than usual fouling the lines, or it could mean there are just more trains.

Alternatively, if your part of the world is lucky enough to still have conductors/guards, then whistles are often used to communicate between the locomotive crew and the conductor/guard. For example, in New Zealand, three short blasts of the horn meant that the guard was to apply the emergency brakes.

I like that idea too. It's also a delightfully subtle nod to the Fake List.
