I'm not trolling!

I'll admit I did form that last sentence in a pretty trollish way, but I really don't like them at all. I've heard about 4 songs of theirs, and they're god awful.

Like, each of the songs was like 10 minutes long, with the same repetitive shitty riff in the most asymmetrical time signature and the singer sounds like he's sucking on eggs while attempting to sing.

Whoa is us.

Where is the line between "trolling" and "genuinely stating one's opinion"?

I've only seen Lady Gaga sing in a video of a TV interview. She was at an electronic keyboard, playing and singing. I don't even think she was singing one of her songs. (I think it was normally sung by another artist.) Her singing was good; her playing was good (no really) but the thing that hit me (because I look at these things) was she was actually having a blast. This wasn't some big mega concert where everything was way too loud, the lights are always way to hot and you are always too tired, but a friendly chat with an anchor and she was having a blast.

I have trolled certain forums by stating my genuine opinions in a "straightforward" manner. Much fun can be had on the Internet if you know where to look.

AoG and BBS-

I used to hate Tool as well (for the same reasons you stated AoG), but only because I was only familiar w/ their radio stuff. My buddy, who is a huge fan, made me start listening to them. I like them a lot now. It sucks that radio only plays some of their most boring, radio-friendly songs, but really they are quite talented. It is an acquired taste, I'll admit. And yes if you're on shrooms then that's a whole other experience.

Shrooms, you say? Hmm....

TAAKA vodka is an acquired taste too. =P

My friends have incessantly hammered my skull with Tool, but I still find the singer's voice lame and lackluster, the lyrics OKAY + YAWN, but I do like the guitarist, bassist, and drummer, but not enough to become a fanboy.

I'm not someone whose taken in by pure technical ability so Tool doesn't have a lot to offer to me. I know that their songs have meaning but it's just to dark and foreboding for me to listen to on a regular basis. However the 2 times I've been Shrooming I thought that Tool Was the undisputed best band in the world! When the shrooms wore off so did that sentiment.

God dammit.

So I added Pantera to my Pandora and I get a shitload of Tool songs. I'm an idiot for just skipping them instead of not down-thumbing them.

John Lennon - Imagine (Christian version)

It should say "Tzor Version." I found out that many choirs sing this song, but change the line to "and one religion too." John Lennon would have loved that.

You may say I'm a christian, but I'm not the only one :o :roll:
