so this girl was in my hs grad class, I only noticed it cause she is not listed under famous hs alum and I had no idea she 'made it'.

nobody has heard of this meme, right? sorta impressive that she'd cite 48 sources.

she is now*

That's news to me, but tbh there are plenty of meme-ish link which show up on my facebook page that I completely ignore.

Pretty clear she wrote this all herself, though.

lol you do not know any singers I guess, because that went around to all of my friends several times starting in 2009, culminating in several of them seeing her perform live with various Broadway casts like Billy Elliot

a board in which there is lively and fuiud debate? (dayo), Monday, 9 May 2011 04:52 (five years ago) Permalink

Article ranges from untrue to unverifiable. Supposedly a musician. Also supposedly "more notorious as an Internet phenomenon than as a musician". Let's put it this way, a mere 932 Google hits, inflated by Wikipedia mirrors and postings on a message board that is itself barely notable at best (see Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/I Love Music), does not qualify as an Internet phenomenon by any stretch of the imagination.

new board description imo

I have a relative who clearly did this. She had a relatively impressive career in a couple of different areas but at most might be worthy of a stub-sized entry for one of them, and instead wrote this super long bio detailing everything she's ever done and exaggerating minor accomplishments.

Keep or Delete, it's up to you, but if you're going to keep, then for god's sake get some better content than that in - none of the names cited are "much-loved internet personalities" they are music writers, apart from the last-named, who is a homophobic nuisance poster on the board (who is also probably responsible for putting the article up in the first place).

Excuse me, but I am that "homophobic nuisance poster". I didn't put up the article in the first place (it was Tuomas, don't you know) and I am an internet personality. Just the other day, someone walked up to me and said "I KNOW YOU FROM THE INTERNET. TO BE SPECIFIC, I LOVE MUSIC!" -- Love, Esteban Buttez

I'm sure the folks at Wikipdeia are fascinated by this, "Esteban".

Whatever that means. Also, I hope you know that I have several gay and lesbian friends. One of them works at Officeworks, and he gets me discounts there now and again. He's such a nice guy. -- Cheers Bigears! Love, Esteban Buttez!

Keep. The content of the article could be improved, but ILM/ILX is of cultural significance.
Delete. As per the above exchange, any entry about "I Love Music" is likely to be persistently changed back and forth for "humorous" purposes by board trolls, such as "Esteban", above. I'm a long-term regular poster on "I Love Music", it's a fun place, but to be honest I really have my doubts about its "cultural significance", despite its appearing in newspapers, and some of the other regulars being published authors etc.

Not exactly the same, but I can guarantee you that Mitt Romney's Wikipedia article was written by one of his staffers.


"Although the campus was becoming radicalized with the beginnings of 1960s social and political movements, Romney kept a well-groomed appearance and enjoyed traditional campus events.[15]"

"In any case, maximizing the value of acquired companies and the return to Bain's investors, not job creation, was the firm's fundamental goal, as it was for most private equity operations.[61][69]"

"While there have been many biographical parallels between the lives of George Romney and his son Mitt,[nb 23] one particular difference is that while George was willing to defy political trends, Mitt has been much more willing to adapt to them.[13][20] "

"Throughout his business, Olympics, and political career, Romney's instinct has been to apply the "Bain way" towards problems.[173][293][312]"

Jonathan Edwards, folk musician

Edwards toured as the lead in the Broadway musical Pumpboys and Dinettes when he met an old friend from the folk circuit, Wendy Waldman, in Nashville. She and Mike Robertson convinced Edwards to come to town and record a country album. "I've been making country-sounding records all my life, but never in Nashville. Yeah, let's do it." Edwards said. So, Natural Thing was produced, recorded, and released on MCA/Curb Records in 1989. "I was crazy about the songs we selected from those great Nashville writers, and the acoustic-based production that Wendy and I put together was just a joy to make and to listen to. I count that as one of the best albums I've ever been involved with."[citation needed]

Brandyn "H*Wood" Bordeaux (born March 6, 1988)[1] is an American born mash-up recording artist. H*Wood is a proud Denver, Colorado musician whose music reflects his elecletic upbringing ranging between electronic, pop, dance and dub-step all while effortlessly rapping the lyrics; the style is considered to be innovative considering electronic and dub-step are generally genres known for its music production rather than its lyrics.

In September 2007, the band announced that they were going to take a break from touring to focus on their education, with Maughan studying English Literature at Oxford University and Anderson studying English and Film at Sheffield Hallam.[citation needed] The decision was explained in an article in The Times newspaper entitled "Bands Balancing Uni With Fame", although it was criticised by the NME in the magazine's review of "The Sad History Of The Village Of Alnerique" in September 2008.[citation needed] Dartz have had three videos featured on MTV2, all of which were directed by Teesside University lecturer Marcus T. Diamond. A fourth video, for the track "Cold Holidays", was recorded by Wife Swap cameraman Rob Taylor during the band's tour with I Was A Cub Scout.[citation needed]
