    The only attack YOU misconstrued and refused to comprehend is the comment I pasted for you. So instead of attempting to reslove the misunderstanding, you posted your thoughts about HMAS - a forum which has NOTHING to do with this issue, much less this forum. I'm seeing it as a scramble for some sort of thwarting. I thought I knew you better than that.

    Easy enough. Don't start them. :)

    Cheers.

    What hospitality? You never stayed at my home :)
    But thank you for your kind words, let's do it again some time (so you can get your cap back).

    Perfectly stated, rahvin. Would you like to take over my forums? :lol: Anyway, seriously...

    I figured I'd interject my moderately sized proboscis into this, mainly because my OUOIFF (© 2003 Sic) forums seem to have come up, here. I fully admit that we have some problems with activity, over there. I mean it isn't Baghdad on an air raid empty, yet, but it can be pretty quiet over there. Problem is when you have a forum that generally covers one specific band that has no official interraction, even with off topic forums, you can really only discuss so much. God knows, just like every forum, we've had our shares of "Your favorite album/song/band/member/whatever" threads or "The longest thread ever!!!!!" threads. I do pin a lot of blame on me, however. I like to run a tight ship over there. Have some standards but still keep it a little laid back. Basically a heaping helping of order with just a dash of chaos mixed in liberally. The positives out of this is I've had almost virtually no problems with posters, but, it can make things a little dead. I took an initiative to get all the forum posters involved in mnaking the place a little better and doing a little "think tank" between our visitors to try and get ideas and gears turning for better and more fun topics. In the case of rahvin I may be preaching to the choir, here, but I figured I'd corroborate what he said (albeit in an extremely longwinded sort of way... hey, I gotta be me, y'know..).

    In the end, am I piss-poor admin, perhaps, but I try to run a place where I can make the highest percentage of people happy as I possibly can. But in the end, I'm human. And I'm fallable. Hey, Einstein was fallable, too, so I guess we're all in good company. In the end, it all comes down to one thing. It's a bunch of text on the internet and in the grand scheme of things, will anyone remember HMAS.org forums, Ultimatemetal.com or hell, even the internet itself, in 1,000 years?

    Probably not.

    Ramblin' Ramblin' Ramblin....

    Oh well. So much for fucking forgetting it or letting it float quietly under the bridge. Ok. I can go the distance if that's what it takes. Sorry this has to come on the heels of Reno's calm and collected post, but more clarity is called for.

    Alright, let me see if I can get this straight. You are upset because you brought to my attention the fact that you are able to schmooze passes for shows by supplying food/drink/other supplies to bands, and then when I tell you that I'm glad that you have the ability to schmooze well - in situations like that - you get all defensive? I'm sorry, that just baffles me. All I did was share my experience and views just like you did.

    This part baffles me even more: If you're actually saying that I EVER accused you of using the Milwaukee situation to your advantage with the beer that I brought, then you are dreaming! I never thought that then and I hadn't entertained such a thought in my head about it until you implied it in this thread. WTFUCKINHELL is that all about? Didn't I already ask where the hell that came from? GeezuzHC! Outer'fucking'space, apparently.

    Re: The UOIFF or OUOIFF - Whatever. I drop by there sometimes and read but it's my choice to post or not post, and for the most part I choose not to post for reasons I feel no need to repeat.
    The "yawner" comment: Heh, I thought it might help light a fire under you, however I see it's a different kind of fire that has ignited. :\ In addition, apart from the yawner comment and as far as the rest of what I wrote in that paragraph is concerned, it wasn't inflammatory toward you or the UOIFF. In fact, I thought you might have taken that challenge with enthusiasm or something - not become Defendor the Great. :eek:

    I'm sorry if I've misjudged you, but the truth is we really don't know much about each other except for what we've gleaned from online communication or the brief encounters at shows. Oh yeah, plus that one time you, Rachel and I went out to map out Oasis One-Sixty when we thought Arch Enemy was going to come there. Remember that? :lol: That was fun. :) Rating people's appearance, shoes, clothing, etc, was a blast! We should do that again some time. ;)


    Indeed. :)

    After reading this Wildfyr/Episode666 thing, Episode666 comes off as a hostile, over-sensitive, snotty person.

    And now for something completely different -
    Going to concerts for one band -
    When DT is playing live in Finland - I'll be at a County Music Festival - crowds for this festival average 100000 beer drinking rednecks - I'm only going late in the day, Saturday to see ZZ Top - how They ended up playing at this festival is a thing of mystery to me other than maybe the Texas connection -
    Here's the lineup -
    Thursday - Diamond Rio, Kentucky Headhunters, Montgomery Gentry, Neal McCoy and Patty Loveless;
    Friday - Aaron Tippin, Charlie Daniels Band, Lonestar, Merle Haggard and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band;
    Saturday - Buddy Jewell, Chris LeDoux, Collin Raye, Jo Dee Messina, the Oak Ridge Boys, Rodney Atkins, Tracy Byrd, ZZ Top and 1170
    Sunday - Bering Strait, Kenny Rogers, Randy Travis and Reba McEntire.
    ^^^ who are some of these people? ^^^
    btw a ticket for 1 day, Saturday is $110 - I'll be getting in free thanks to a Friend (love You, Teri )
    I don't know if this is off topic but I go to see live music at times not only never heard the music but never heard of the group - I'll see an advertisement and say to myself this looks interesting -
    To clear my head of this Country Thing - going to see W.A.S.P soon -
