Any interest in a GNE Last.fm group?
« on: April 04, 2008, 11:04:59 pm »
Just looking through Last.fm, and was thinking we might try putting together a group for people on the forums and soforth. Probably also invite the GoRC people to join, since I don't see a point in having two small groups instead of one large one. Who's interested?

I am. However, GoRCers tend to be very Christian, so we'll get things like Skillet and Disciple interplexed with Nine Inch Nails, Alice Cooper, and SlipKnot. Fine for me, might not be so fine for the GoRCers. That's my only concern with the combined group.

And if anyone on my forums spams last.fm with backstreet boys, Celine Dion, or any other regurgitated monkey vomit, I swear to the Infernal God V'kryanoae I will remove your genitalia, and replace it with used hypodermic needles. I will then proceed to throw you into the middle of a masochistic communist buttfuck orgy with a sign that says 'Capitalist Pig' tattooed on your back, but I'm probably stretching the metaphor a bit.

Well, that's their problem, honestly. If they want to form their own group, awesome, but if that's their concern then I wouldn't be very welcome there either. But since the groups are related, and have several common members, and they're both pretty small, I figure it's better to have just one group than two. That's their call, and I'll post in the GoRC forums after I've made the group (assuming there's more interest here), unless Dawn or Cae has a problem with it.

It's not like we're making them listen to evil devil rock music, either - it'll just make it easier to find what people in the group are listening to, etc. I like it, and I like finding new music, so to me it seems like bringing this group into that is a logical next step.

Just a bit.

Actually, you'll find for the most part the GoRCers listen to all sorts of good stuff.  Piece loves AC/DC, Gun Slinger likes Lamb of God, I'm big into anything rock.  Music is one area you won't get any complaints from those gorc people that would sign up.

Kinda figured, but good to hear nonetheless. :-)

I'm interested.

Does anybody here like punk? Like... actual punk? Not Simple Plan, and Good Charlotte horse shit right?

After Chris explained to me what it is, HELL YES.
I love sharing and discovering new music.  :rockon:

@MissTake: I like classic punk in a certain space and time. One of the only CDs I actually own is Never Mind the Bollocks; Here Come the Sex Pistols. Wewt.
And I love Green Day. Classic Green Day.  ;)

My taste is extremely eclectic, so I'll try anything once.  :blush:

Kinky.

Also - cplan, you might not post on the gorc forums, those that would be into it are over here already.  What I WILL do it toss a post into the h3ads section so the h3ads can get into it.

That works.

Chris, IM me when you get on, so I can get the info (description, etc.) right.

In the meantime, here's me. If you're interested, go here, download the client and sync it to WMP / Winamp / ITunes (and it integrates with your IPod! :clint: ) / whatever. That's it; just check in occasionally to see what people are playing. I've mainly been doing Hurt, Lacuna Coil, and Red Sparowes lately, for instance.

Piece loves AC/DC

Hmm... Now where did I tell you that? :uhm:

Just so you'll know, you didn't get it wrong, however, I don't remember ever mentioning it. And I like so much more than that. :rara:

Oh, and as for the Last.fm, I'll try to make an account before long, and I will personally barter with Morgul to ban anyone putting up rap. (Linkin Park style is fine, but rap has got to go. :crazy:)

I concur... Rap would... just make my brain hurt.

Maybe it was someone else who posted that on gorc.  Ah well.

And Piece, how many LAN parties does one need to attend to learn that you love AC/DC?
