who are the BIG HOOS of metal

J0rdan S., Thursday, 14 April 2011 03:03 (nine years ago) link

btw, I meant this thread kinda srs (like, I actually stand by my estimation - even tho it is largely arbitrary), but mostly in the lighthearted sense of a parody thread, in light of all the B4 threads of recent vintage. So yall can get meticulously analytical and/or butthurt if u feel so inclined, but know that it was not in such a spirit that this was meant!

I would definitely withdraw myself from the initial list and substitute Alex in NYC. And probably slip J0rdan S. out to slip Alfred in. So, Ned/Alex in NYC/lex/Alfred

ILM's all-time mount rushmore is prob Ned/Ethan/Geir/Alex in NYC

Specific Ocean Blue (dog latin), Friday, 6 November 2020 15:49 (three weeks ago) link

Is this a most famous posters on ILM? For musicians I’d say Owen Pallett is one of the biggest in here that is frequently active.

✖✖✖ (Moka), Friday, 6 November 2020 17:15 (three weeks ago) link

i think neil young (neanderthal) is more famous than owen pallett

treeship., Friday, 6 November 2020 17:18 (three weeks ago) link

Neanderthal is Neil Young!? How did I not know this.

Is there a thread for a who’s who or how do you all have this common knowledge.

I just very recently found out JD Twitch is around ILM too.

agreed

brimstead, Friday, 6 November 2020 18:20 (three weeks ago) link

instead of a big 4 posters imo we should work out the big 4 differences ILM has from other music communities

here's my effort

- poptimism was won so long ago and so firmly that pop is kind of ancient lore & rite here, not something new and exotic that we're suddenly allowed to like. this puts ILM at odds with other communities that I've seen going through the same wars we did 15 years ago

- by far the best EOY polls & celebrations in existence

- absolute intolerance of fatuous thinking, which is mostly a positive but also sometimes i do feel a tiny, tiny bit sorry for the Turricans of this earth. adapt or die tho tbh, i did

- definite progressive agenda forcing regular posters to go without their usual anglocentric listening habits (while also still catering to the latter plenty) - again, a v good thing, even if u all diss indie 2 much sometimes

imago, Friday, 6 November 2020 18:28 (three weeks ago) link

anglocentric/manocentric. an ilx alltime canon would be much, much more female than almost all the other canons, and frankly, good
