    I realized earlier that ACM is good friends with Charlotte Wessels from Delain, so perhaps ACM could be my way in...

    You know Sputnikmusic, the site? It's quite OK for any alternative genres including metal, reviews are used by metacritic, etc. Check the progressive metal charts. BNW at 10th best prog metal release of Y2K, and Powerslave is the top scoring "progressive metal release" in the entire 1980s. Followed by Operation:Mindcrime. Then Seventh Son. Then Abigail. Then TNOTB :D According to Sputnikmusic, Iron Maiden is the most influential progressive metal band of the 1980s and they're well received even now (EOTC at 20-something for 2016, TBOS similar ranking).

    I'm genuinely excited about Dave's surprise.

    Tell them they make their music to full these days and demand that they write good melodies again like in the nineties.

    Sure you get an autograph afterwards. ;)

    No problem Foro! Shall I pass on your phone number so they can get in touch with you directly to find out exactly what you want from them?

    It always annoyed me that when Paul Simon sings about 50 ways to leave your lover, he actually only happens to mention, like, five ways in the end and then he just repeats it. What about the other 45, dude?


    Get up and scram, Sam
    Start up the lorry, Rory
    Break off your chains, James
    Go take a hike, Mike
    Make yourself gone, John
    Give her a slip, Kip
    Turn a new leaf, Steve
    Abandon your pad, Jed
    Pretend you’re deaf, Jeff
    Say that that’s all, Paul
    Let’s pack a bag, Reg
    Don’t worry and book, Luke
    If it snows then plough, Joe
    Give her the bill, Will
    Stop bein‘ a slave, Dave
    Just go and split, Kit
    Ask her to peg, Greg
    Leave with a man, Dan
    Take back the diamond, Simon
    Hack her to pieces, Reece
    …and get yourself free.

    I need another 25. <_<

    You can direct them here as well. Have been in touch with a German metal band before when I started analyzing their lyrics/song titles on their forum.

    By the way, first ask for the autograph, then the questions and demands. ;)
  12. Black Abyss Babe

    Black Abyss Babe Ocean soul

    None of those suitable then?

    My favourite Paul Simon lyric is "he ducked back down the alley with some roly-poly little bat-faced girl" - anyone up for a new thread along the lines of "lyrics we thought must be misheard but turned out to be genuine"?

    Meat in a plastic sack probably fits in a thread like that. ;)

    Travis The Dragon The dreamers may die, but the dreams live on.

    Or do a co-headliner with Sabaton. Even though I didn't get a chance to go see either bands when they came here.

    You ate too much for breakfast and it's carried over.

    I'm using an ancient calculator at work. One of those where you type 100/3*3 and receive 99,9999999 if you know what I mean.

    It occurred to me that with their smartphones, kids today probably aren't using those anymore. So they will never learn about the joy you get out of typing BOOBIES into a calculator. They won't understand the joy of typing any word into a calculator.

    What a loss of culture.

    I don't think smartphones are generally allowed for calculations at school, not for me at least. You can do so much more with a proper calculator, including staring at boobs.

    Calculators weren't allowed at all during my time in school.
