I know what you mean man. I stopped listening to music altogether a few years ago. I just have my friends listen to the albums and then write me explanations about the music. Those, when accompanied by the lyrics make for a much richer experience than listening to the music itself.
This is obvious sarcasm. I thought it was clear too.
I'm down wit the youtube, keep postin' peeps! Scroll down otherwise

"Here's how youtube works, everyone:
1.) Pick your video. Let's say I want to appreciate the fine musicianship of Red Hot Chili Peppers, who do not care about image and are Legitimate Artists (R). So I pick the following video: www.youtube.com/watch?v=06Dql7EiMWE
2.) Then, click the youtube tag. It will look like this: (youtube)(/youtube) EXCEPT instead of parentheses, there will be brackets.
3.) Then, take the part of the link that comes after watch?v= which, in this instance, is 06Dql7EiMWE.
4.) Then, put THAT between the youtube tags. It will look like this, but once again -- brackets instead of parentheses: (youtube)06Dql7EiMWE(/youtube)"
I say blame this guy
What is wrong with awesome videos by awesome bands?????
It is true that searching a bands name on YouTube can lead to some very strange results, its nice having someone with knowledge of the band post the video for you. The comment about Ween on youtube is so true, none of their good videos come up at first.
Exactly. People that are familiar with a band posting their favorite youtubes is much more of a service than a hindarence.

I know from being a regular on a non-music web board that there is a large cross-section of the population who despise videos and GIFs on message boards, and would spend two minutes browsing this Lineup/Artists forum before deciding to never come back, which is why I started the thread.
This board is obviously very new (no one has 600 posts). It means we can make the board what we want it to be. If we want to scare off all the sarcastic intellectuals, and cater to lingo typing youngsters, we can easily do this. It all depends on what we want.
I never said the videos piss me off, or that I dislike youtube. I said it is being overdone, and said it is sloppy, like posting your wish lists in the rumors thread. It's about maintaining some sort of organization on a board with virtually no supervision.
If we want the Killer Vids thread to become the greatest collection of worthy youtube videos any web board has ever seen, we can do that. If we want to lower our maturity level 12 notches and excessively post more youtube videos in other threads out of spite, we can do that too. I don't care either way, it's all about community.
Well I have 5,267 posts over a 5 year span on another music related forum (if we're discussing LEET INTERNET STATS) so I'm going to assume I know a thing or two about "forum culture." Yes this is my first year on this board, but I'm going to assume that for 3/4 of the year this place is pretty dead. I'll also assume that ALOT of new traffic shows up to a forum like this around festival time in order to get quick answers and easy info. The videos are entertaining and absolutely perfect for this situation. Don't get so hyped over it dude, seriously. If the worst part of your day is the result of 3 extra spins on the old mouse scroller then I think you're doing alright for yourself.
And I have to add, close to 100% (if not 100%) of the videos that have been posted on this forum have been completely on topic and related to the content. I think everyone has been very tasteful and respectful with all of the videos they have added to the threads. I've seen some abominations of gif's and videos before that have turned forums into complete zoo's. At least these ones are rich in content and help us form worthwhile opinions on up-coming Sasquatch artists.
