Post R.I.P. Musicscene
I just discovered that musicscene.org has apparently closed up shop. They had a nice farewell posted from So Long and Thanks for All the Fish which I thought was fitting and clever.

For those who don't know, Musicscene had a somewhat popular message forum where people would gather to lambaste local bands and share uninformed opinions on how the music biz works. It was also great for promoting shows to users that were too cool to ever actually go to a concert, yet knew everything about them. In recent years, it became a place to talk about everything except music, as musicians were trained to avoid talking about their own bands for fear of inevitable harsh critique.

At one point I recognized that their forums had been taken over by a half dozen d-bags who were ruining the site for everyone and turning active users into lurkers. They stopped accepting new users too, but that didn't stop these folks from lording over that stupid message board. I made it my hobby to annoy these dorks, and I concocted a master plan that would show them to be the talentless hacks I knew them to be. It was working great for nearly two years and I was putting the final touches on my masterpiece when it closed up. A shame, because it was truly a work of art that now will go unfinished and unappreciated. Oh well.

I have no doubt that some of these fools will now begin posting here, as they have nothing else to do with their lives. So be prepared for them because some of those folks are truly pathetic human beings whose only joy in life is pointing out how irrelevent your music is, how pointless it is to be in a band, and how utterly awful it is to be a musician.

RIP Musicscene

I read it years ago, can't remember if I posted there at all but I always use the same online name.

It was awful. Many posters on it make me look like Mr. Rogers.

You bet! :)

Seriously though, the folks on this forum are a definitnely a cut above. I respect quite a few who post here. Sure, there are your token morons that I like to cut to bits- but overall a decent collection of folks here IMHO.

I can't stop weeping... so this is 2011 huh?

how will I connect with my fellow local musicians now that the one true bastion of hope has gone gurgling under?!?!? Where will I go for debate between two anonymous foe's slinging half-truths around like turds from the ass of a drunken ape?! Where else can I get that home-spun minnesota nice hatchet job on an upstart band just looking for a little support from their supposed 'community'?! Will those minor grammatical errors just go unnoticed?!!? What will become of us all!?!?!!?

Where will I go?! What will I do?
Frankly my dear online community, I don't give a damn.

I have quite a bit of "Star Power" around here, so my misspelling acceptance by others is just one of the many perks iget for being so famous! :D

xxxooo I love you all!

Damn, wish I could have checked out musicscene.org, did they talk about me there too?!

I quit going over to modernradio as well
Same hatchet job trolling and freeze outs
I managed to have one good conversation about Zappa
The rest was lazy douchebag trolling and trivial conversations about useless topics

and

Among the many reasons to jump on Fisty
Spelling isn't one of them

Post Re: R.I.P. Musicscene
I went over there because Zom alerted me to some noise douche was talking shit about me
It turned into the predictable bait and troll session with lots of people egging us on like Jr Hi kids in a lunchroom fight
There were a couple of topics thare that I enjoyed bit most of the time I was being freezed out
The people there didn't appreciate my participation and I got a lot of hostile reactions
I decided I was wasting my time when I couldn't even get people to participate in a Devo thread

I don't mind and adversarial exchange and I don't even mind someone telling me what they think "my problem" is
I never got one decent response when I openly invited any of them to expound on their one sentnence criticisms
They said I talked too much

WTF?

Isn't the purpose of a message board to have a discussion?

Geez, that was a creepy thread. Scary to think people can just make shit up & accuse you of being a narc? & no one there challenges them (except z in a way)?
Suprised they even let you respond at all, looks like you have to be known among the "cool" people first! :lol:

Post Re: R.I.P. Musicscene
Here's the funniest part
They didn't think I was a Narc
They honestly thought I was trying to infiltrate their scene
I asked the obvious question which was "Do you really think that your scene is so important that the police would have an undercover agent manufacture all of the hours of media that is on my homepage just to spy on you?

Al I got in response was a bunch of threats and no real answer
The last threat was that he was gonna stick me in the neck with a steak knife if he ever saw me at one of his gigs

Of course, the concept itself is ridiculous and I am sure many people thought so
But that didn't mean they were gonna chime in and say "That's ridiculous"
Instead, they just tried to fuel the conflict for their own amusement

Say what you will but a very large percentage of the people on there are my friends.

They're wonderful, friendly and talented people for the most part. Fisty, you're much more of a hipster poseur than just about any of them.

You probably know many of them as well.

Just like on any board, there are dummies and trolls like you.

Whoa! I never called anyone a "poseur". I just thought it was cute that they invoke me & others there in order to get your attention. I know they are fine folks, smart shoppers too!

If it makes you happy I could stroll over there & say... "hello" I guess. A fig leaf of apreash?

You could have chosen to have the last part of your conversation in IM
You chose to post it in open forum
OPEN forum means that it is open for anyone to say anything
This is especially hypocritical coming from the sole member of this board that manages to dump STD comments like cold water all over any event posting remotely containing ay sexual overtones

If Fisty is this board's crazy ranting lunatic then you have to be out Debbie Downer
Maybe you should put this link in your signature

http://www.sadtrombone.com/

That way, we can hear the appropriate sound after reading your posts

That's fine.. I like it. It's very Goth.


I keep trying to think of a "mental picture" of either one of you but all I get is a vaguely human shaped head with no face.

kind of like talk radio people. sure, sometimes you see what they supposedly look like on billboards and such, but that's just so the actual lack of face seems less disturbing.

You guys are brilliant.

With enough work, we just might get a similar eulogy with gothdarktwinling finally dies.

Though that which never lived, cannot die.
