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.

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 (3 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.

e.g.:

"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.

'FranKo' are a young, pop-rock band from South London UK.[5] Their blistering live style is matched by their unique, savvy songwriting and sharp looks. Having already made their mark, the 4 piece has achieved plenty - playing for London's City Showcase, touring in Thailand, taking their live show to NYC and supporting Elliot Minor on their Solaris UK national tour.
Hard working and naturally charismatic, they are currently putting together the finishing touches for their latest collection of songs, which finds them realising a compelling new sound. They have just completed 2 tours of the UK (supporting ROOM 94, then Dave Giles) and just before that returned from Music Matters in Singapore (and a sold out show in Bangkok) where they were lauded as one of THE bands to see at the festival. During Music Matters, FRANKO contributed performances to international charitable single 'Fix You' by Music Matters For Japan - which is out now.[6] Their international and home-grown fanbases continue to swell as more and more towns and territories latch onto their distinctive sound. Fan pages have been springing up all over, including those in the US, Canada, France, Germany, Holland, Australia, Malaysia, Singapore, Mexico, Chile, Uruguay, Argentina - and the guys make sure they service their fans diligently, and with the respect they deserve.
Earlier in the year, FRANKO were nominated as finalists in 2 categories at the inaugural St Helier Cider Online Music Awards: Best Rock Act 2011 & Best International Unsigned - and winning Best Rock Act.
December will see them playing to a potential 100,000 people over 6 days at Birmingham's NEC, where they are the only live band appearing at the Clothes Show Live event, lining up alongside acts like Alexandra Burke and Parade. And January 2012 sees them looking to take their live show to the Asian market, including a slot supporting Incubus in Thailand.
On the 29th March 2013, FranKo announced on their Facebook page they were going on a break to Re-invent themselves. [7]

the entry does not mention the most interesting thing about FranKo, IE that their singer is one of the flatmates from the BT adverts.

also their name makes them sound like they were named after frank kogan, but I think that's just a coincidence
