Face it, Isaac, you wouldn't continually respond to Ingrown in this manner if you didn't love to argue. And Ingrown wouldn't continually argue with you if you just stopped.

Face it. You complete eachother!

I think the fact that I am not arguing in that post, but pointing out when someone else is arguing, blows your theory out of the water.

And... you can't possibly stand to be on the losing side of an argument, so now you're setting yourself up to be the victor by debunking my theory that you just love to argue. Quid Pro Quo, Doctor.

Why are you arguing about whether or not this is an argument?

Your circular reasoning will not confound me, Doctor. You can't spin your way out of this one!

Some Guy: The sky is blue.
Ingrown Asshair: No, it's not. It's turquoise!

The sky ISN'T blue, it just appears that way... and if you were half as smart as you think you are, you'd realize that.
my entry made my girlfriend laugh a few times, the best I can hope for really.

I'd say Whalberg definately qualifies as really good.

This isn't an argument, it's just contradiction!

I'm beginning to think Isaac is setting himself up to be "lucky Pierre."

Look, if I argue with you, I must take a contrary position.

Secondly, "Nu metal"? Seriously? You actually think that's an ACTUAL genre? That vague, bizarre label that has been tagged onto everything from Faith No More to Rob Zombie? Okay, I'll play along.


Faith No More was called a nu-metal band? This is news to me. And I am a huge Mike Patton fanboy.

Back on topic, I looked up Hollywood Undead on iTunes, hoping that it wasn't as bad as this topic makes it sound.

It's probably even worse.

Why are you so extreme? STOP ARGUING.

and if you were half as smart as you think you are, you'd realize that.

Goddamn, you're stupid. Here's an idea: find a brick and talk to it. There! You've met your intellectual match! Have a fun conversation!

Isaac, are you this argumentative in real life? Does your mother come into your room and ask you to clean up that pile of dirty dishes on the floor, only to have you reason that you shouldn't have to clean them up because you're not a maid?

Lay off the crack pipe, mon. Try a little sensimilla.

...anyway.




So the album bombed?  I'm suprised since it seemed on par with a lot of other stuff I hear on commercial 'youth radio', I'd say how trend-driven the US music scene is would be more to blame than anything.

I bring you Hollywood Undead:



From their wiki:

Quote
Hollywood Undead is a band whose music has been described as a mixture of hip hop, emo and metal.[1]

The band originated in 2005 from a song Deuce and J-Dog posted on MySpace to positive views and which led them to form the group Hollywood Undead with their friends Johnny 3 Tears, Charlie Scene, Funny Man and Da Kurlzz.[1] In their first nine weeks on MySpace they had almost a million plays and by 2006 they were said to be leading MySpace's top unsigned artists list with over 8 million plays.[2][3] In 2005 they became the first band to sign up with MySpace Records.[4] By 2008 the band had over 40 million plays and over 400,000 friends on MySpace.[5]

The band perform in individual masks in order to maintain an air of mystery.[1] This originated from their MySpace page which they filled with pictures of themselves in hockey masks.[2] They made their live debut in August 2008 at the Virgin Mobile Festival after winning 285,000 votes, over half the total, in a Book the Band contest against four other bands.[6] Their popular song Undead is featured on the Madden 2009 Soundtrack and was released as an official single on August 19, 2008, making it the second single from Swan Songs.

Though the group first signed a record contract in 2005, they spent nearly three years working on their debut album.[7] Hollywood Undead have signed a contract with A&M/Octone Records and will release their debut album Swan Songs on 02 September 2008.[6]


UGH.  We have been mocking this album at work since we got a promo last week. Especially the guy who calls himself "Johnny 3 Tears". What is really sad is that it is going to sell like hotcakes. We even had some guy offer us $100 to sell him our promo copy so he could get it early....

Bet you anything that this is a "manufactured" band and the management came up with the idea of the masks so that if anybody thinks they're the star, they can be replaced by just another skinny assed wannabe they can get cheap.

No way.. how are you going to replace the hammer and sickle hand tattoo guy? He's the Justin Timberlake of the group!
