"A Week In Posts" - Week of 8/9/09

edited August 2009 in Less Rokk More Talk
Okay, guys. I'm going to try a weekly event for the forums. Here's the deal:

The Rock Band forums gets thousands of posts a day. I want you guys to "nominate" memorable, funny, smart, or whatever posts that you see. If it's interesting, quote it! Post these "nominations" in this thread and at the end of the week I will post the top 5 posts of the week in the OP. It'll be kind of a hall of fame for memorable posts. If you read "Kotaku" you may be familiar with this.

Nominators will get E-Cookies. :D


By the way, if you feel necessary to help your nomination make sense you should post a link to the thread the post was in, or if the nomination was a reply to a quote, post what the nomination was replying to. Though, not all posts need this.

After examination of the thread I felt that it was best to not allow self nominations unless someone else nominates it for you. Feel free to show the thread something you posted, and if someone is kind of enough to nominate it then I'll consider it for the weekly top 5. Otherwise, this thread is just here for some good laughs. :)



Current Nominations:

Topic: Things That I Have Learned... (Page 20)

I realize that, but I HATE how people do it in such a rude, in-your-face attitude. I love it when people say, "(insert band) is not my thing, but if you want them in Rock Band, variety is always welcome." Where some people say, "WTF is wrong with you? Are you serious? That band makes me want to throw up!" What I'm saying is, I know speaking what you think is important, but doing it with the right attitude is also essential.

Well, How Soon Is Now?.

I've already told you about how much I Want The One I Can't Have. He is a Sweet and Tender Hooligan, but we're getting Nowhere Fast.

Yes, it is true that my Bigmouth Strikes Again, but This Charming Man makes me feel Still Ill.

As much as I wanted to, I couldn't wish him an Unhappy Birthday. Instead, with Hand In Glove, I realized that in his smile There Is A Light That Never Goes Out.

    EWWWW, nominating your own posts is not the right thing to do.

    I don't really know how this will work though, the forums is lacking in funny humor on sundays.

    To reduce the tooting of our own horns, I'll nominate this instead, then, because I should've done so in the first place... if only because this is a way of approaching things I'd love to see more often on the forums.

    He's using his confusion attack!

    Counteract with tackle Pikachu!

    Wait, you aren't a pokeemon, your just a crazy cat with beading yellow eyes.

    Oh, and the great power of a mighty banhammer.

    So I have nothing to worry about, right?

    Also, I have pie.

    [QUOTE=AKALink;2849270][QUOTE=zander420;2849230]I don't know if anyone else has noticed this or not but I am highly upset!

    In the song "Casey Jones" the word "Cocaine" is not muted.. I mean they sing it over and over, but in the song "Rock your socks off" every little cuss word is MUTED! I do not understand that? How can you have one song that is about a dude driving while on cocaine, but in rock your socks off every cuss word is taken out (which kills the song BTW!)

    It seems totally hypocritical to me.... I can imagine the guys at the rating board "ummm lets leave COCAINE in this song (cause I like doing that) but let's take out all the cuss words in every other song so parents won't get upset".....???

    makes sense to me... NOT....

    How come they didn't just leave all the songs alone and set the "Parental Controls" in the PSP so little kids would not have their little brain corrupted? Or they could have made it 18+ game??

    Just my 2 cents... everything in this country is back asswards! It kills me!!!!!
    Because the word cocaine is not a cuss word. Last time I checked the word cocaine is not insulting anyone anytime soon.[/QUOTE]You are such a cocaine[/QUOTE]

    I'm not nominating it, but honestly I personally think this is one of the best posts I've had in a while, mainly because I can't help but laugh even though I'm the one that wrote it

    did you really need that many posts in reserve?

    I would like to nominate ALL of my posts please, as well as the post in which Apples mentioned genital flashing in Xbox Live's Uno game. It changed my online experience tremendously and gives a whole new meaning to the "draw four" card.

    Why of course, what's a prize without bacon, e-dollars, and cookies?



    By the way, if you feel your nominated post is "incomplete" or doesn't seem to make much sense without the previous post (like, someone says something, then you make a joke about it) then you can post the thread page link and say which posts to look at, or just quote the previous posts like neckermanncj or overdriveguitarman did.

    Nah, your post was informative. You could tell you were talking about people complaining about bands being or coming to RB. Some people like to be a gentlemen about it and accept any incoming artists, and others just like to spout nonsense and flaunt their opinions to make their e-peen look big.
