Noticed that Ilham has been quiet of late. Even old Lit has been quiet.

Haha I'm sorry, I just forgot, I've neglected my inbox in general, not you, you'll have an answer soon. Kind just got sick of the every day MS thing and changed up the way my days go, got myself a couple of minor clients, and been dedicated to working out a lot. I also started going to bed much earlier and going back to reading instead of forum spamming. But I'm sure I'll get depressed soon enough, drop all my efforts and go back here haha.

This month I got something of a black metal poisoning from listening to nothing but. Have been listening to Tool and Devin instead for a few weeks now and I suddenly feel like creating progressive or alt rock or metal now instead of writing for Dreadrealm. Man, I am one inconsistent mofo...

In Porjus, Sweden we have midnight sun from 2th june till mid july, Sun never sets, but why in winter there are no polar darkness? Even in Vietas where midnight sun are more longer , polar night is 7 days, same in Kiruna, Soppero? Why I thought it must be same as light as dark, equal days? why its that?

Here is a random topic I wanted to discuss here: What do y'all think of tribute bands? I personally don't really like the idea, but I wanted to know some other metalstormers thoughts on the subject.

It's not something which I care for personally. Tribute bands usually never tend to make it beyond the bar/night club.......and they shouldn't because it wouldn't be right to be a sort of main-stage band while at the same time riding on the coat tails of one single band......

I think that starting out as a tribute band (I believe Circus Maximus for example started by only playing Dream Theater stuff for example) is fine. Making a career of it with no intention of ever creating original material is something I simply don't understand at all. What is the point of being a 2nd or 3d best version of another band?

Off-topic:

As 2017 ends tonight, I think we should all applaud Whitney Houston for being drug-free for six years. Well done, clearly Houston hasn't got a problem.

Slayer started as a tribute band as well, playing Iron Maiden and Judas Priest songs live.

To me tribute bands always seemed the idea of those people mildly interested in playing instruments who just want to do a jam band to see if they can play together with other people and then after 4 months or so they disband... It also almost always seems to be the case.
I don't take those very seriously

I don't think there's anything wrong with playing in a cover or tribute band. I understand the feeling of just wanting to play live music with friends and having fun without having to put in all the work of writing/recording your own music. I would never be satisfied with it myself but I do understand it.

You chose the right words. Had you called Cynic "captain obvious", he could've come back with "sergeant sarcasm" or something like that.

Three days ago, I auditioned for a voice-acting role in a Final Fantasy VIII fandub, just for a goof. Now I look at the auditions on the Casting Call Club site, and I am the clear leader when it comes to upvotes from users. That doesn't mean that the project's director will choose me, but it is surprising nonetheless. What makes it extra weird is that the only available role was that of Irvine and I don't sound anything like the guy should imo. I'd make an excellent Squall, angsty, bored, indifferent and... emoish. We'll see how it goes. Deadline is the 8th and then they director will make their choice.

You know what sucks? Not having people to bounce your ideas off of as a musician. 0 people, who listen to doom or atmoblack on my FB friends list... :-/

For example, I came up with a riff today that sounds a bit like Black Sabbath meets J.S. Bach. Is it good? Is it awful? Is it too derivative? I can't tell, as the author, I am both too narcissistic and too critical at the same time.

So it turns out Rapidgator and Turbobit will always start a download, then slowly decrease download speed until stop and display "internet error"? I've been experiencing this for quite a while.
It's probably not my internet conenction because everything else seems to load just fine...

Anyone else has this problem?

I admit of pirating most of my library as well, but at least I have a common sense enough not to advertise it online.

And yes, I know my post can be seen as ironic.

Well for once you could say I didn't exactly say I was pirating in my post, I just said I was trying to download something. It could be something completely legal :yeahright:
But then again I also had blatantly admitted I pirated stuff in this forum before so...

In my country there (still) are no big restrictions when it comes to piracy so there is no problem in admitting it online.

My country is very liberal about it as well. I also have no moral qualms about it as I am piss poor, and buying a fuckton of albums is a luxury I can't afford. I do try to support the artists with merch and concert tickets whenever I can though.
