For the record, I have nothing against your opinions, and you are entitled to post them to your heart's desire. But this is a rumors thread, so "WRONG KID DIED" etc., despite their comedic value, really don't inspire me to "take you seriously."
My post was aimed more at your followers than you, but still you manage to incite another one of your famous mudslinging board wars. Props.
Well, he is the most active poster, Mr. 37 posts ;-)
This board kinda runs on seniority, I've noticed. And most of the time, HG knows what he's talking about.
Well other "senior members" of this board (Pea and Know for example) aren't met with brown nosing of the same "oh, you just shat on my favorite band and my intelligence, but I still want you to accept me" nature that people seem to direct towards HG.

When I first saw that this was turning into a rapper possibilities thread on the first page, my immediate thought was to suggest outkast. Now I see I am not the only one with that thought. That dude on the educated guesses thread that claims to be bff's with Adam Zack('s) should suggest the FUCK out of those ATLiens if they do go on tour.
Alright so I was in the pit near the front before TV on the Radio last year, behind this hefty dude with an NIN tattoo on the back of his neck, and freshly purchased NIN sunglasses. He started ripping tough on TVOTR, calling for them to not even play to make space for a huge NIN set, etc., and this hipstery dude next to me started hating on the man's beloved NIN, which led "NIN man" to give said hipster a shove. Pretty irked and no doubt having heard previous conversations, the hipster grabbed the fresh shades off the visage of the bewildered NIN fan, and hurled them into the crowd. Being there for TVOTR, and not having a huge passion for Trent Reznor, I had to stifle a chuckle or two when my NIN-worshipping neighbor turned to me and started lamenting the "hipster trash" present, and the fact that he had made the trip from Santa Barbara. May not be a crazy occurrence, but it sure is a fond memory.
A more ridiculous anecdote:
At approximately 2 AM on one of the mornings last year (Monday?), while my friends and I sat merrymaking around our campsite, a long-haried 30-something man popped up from seemingly nowhere and asked my group if we would like to see something. I said sure, and he produced a metal object from his pocket very quickly, at first I thought it was a gun, but he then proceeded to serenade my campsite with an eloquent cover of The Rolling Stones "Miss You" on his Harmonica, occasionally accompanied by falsetto vocals. He introduced himself as "Jess" and told us pretty much his life story in five minutes. His story concluded with "Well, that's it I guess... Shadoobles, man." When questioned about his terminology, he revealed he used to say "shadoobie," but he got tired of it and changed to "shadoobles." I'm wondering if anyone else encountered this wandering, harmonica-plying, life-sharing man-- who asked only for a beer in return for his entertainment.
