http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/I_Love_Music

Delete - content is non-notable, verging on the nonsensical. --Whouk (talk) 18:55, 13 December 2005 (UTC)

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.

Its content was recently replaced with an unrelated article about trees, which was then vandalized Bill 18:00, 13 December 2005 (UTC)

Comment this vote for keep is from the same ip address that replaced the article with one about pine trees. Must not think its too important.Bill 22:37, 13 December 2005 (UTC)

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.

Concerning his writing lyrics, he has stated in one interview, "...it's a connection to the sub-conscious a side-stepping of the rational brain to let what's in you spiritually manifest itself in your creative medium. I mess with words as they come flying out of my brain uninvited. I think it's more like prose-poetry sometimes, hypertext, concentrated meaning in a seemingly abstract construction. It can be a little puzzling but there is a narrative but not in the literal sense we are used to... You have to absorb and translate...";and in another, "...you have to make the words count, but the order in which you put them is the really fun time. It's all code, puzzles, concentrated meaning. It has a surreal coloring but it's much less random than you'd expect."
About how his writing style has changed over the years, he has said, “...I began with a much more structured style of writing that fit the conventional pop song structure, I think within that structure you can create puzzles and language is a beautiful instrument to manipulate in this way. I have tried to move into more abstract , DADA territory with some of the later work, the meaning becomes coded like hypertext. The narrative is back to front or a zig-zag pattern of small movies. Tone Poet is a balance that can be achieved between narrative and nonsense, they’re interchangeable and I really have no idea sometimes what is going to happen until I sing, it’s instinctive mostly but occasionally the words are written down randomly and call to you in a sequence that fits."

Clearly a genius.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Professional_Children%27s_School

Professional Children's School was founded by two reform-minded New Yorkers, Jane Harris Hall and Jean Greer Robinson. Ardent theatre-goers, the women learned of the plight of the city's professional children - young people working on the New York stage. Public and private schools of the day did not accommodate the schedules of stage children and, more often than not, children were simply skipping school to work on the stage. Some reformers talked of banning children from the stage entirely. Determined to help these "unknown friends on the other side of the footlights," as Mrs. Robinson would later write, the women decided to found a school especially for New York's professional children. On 6 January 1914, PCS admitted its first two students in borrowed quarters in the Theater District. An immediate success, the school enrolled over 100 students within its first year.[1]

The Mau-Mau's [sic] were started in 1978 by Rick Wilder (formerly the singer of the Berlin Brats)
The original line-up from Hollywood, California was Greg Salva on guitar, Roderick Donahue on bass, and Rick Sherman on drums. They started out playing at The Masque in Hollywood. Greg was replaced by Mike R. Livingston in 1979 after Greg moved to New York and Rod was replaced first by Oscar Harvey and then by Scott Franklin (onetime bassist in The Cramps). Rick had been chosen to be MC of the Penelope Spheeris movie The Decline of Western Civilization but was dumped after he insisted he be able to say what he really thought of every act before their clip (it was probably not going to be too complimentary).
The Mau-Mau's are probably the only one of the original bands from The Masque era that do not appear in The Decline. Wilder’s somewhat eccentric attitude toward the record industry and the generally extreme lifestyle of the band members contributed towards a long period of obscurity despite being well known by most in the early Los Angeles punk rock scene. The Mau-Mau's can be seen briefly in the movie Rock 'n' Roll High School, have appeared the movie "Cocaine and Blue Eyes" starring OJ Simpson and were included in the compilation Hell Comes to Your House II.
The Mau-Mau’s are releasing SCORCHED EARTH POLICIES..THEN AND NOW, featuring Doors guitarist, Robbie Krieger, playing the solo on a cover of the Wilder-Campbell punk classic, "(I'm) Psychotic", as well as Krieger's production work & also that of punk pioneer, Geza X. Gideon.

'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
