        so are you

        You said you wouldn't appeal to popularity, but you'll appeal to likes? Likes don't mean anything. You're acting hypocritical and your foundation is silly.

        But I deleted your post because ARGUING about likes in that thread, and probably any, is stupid.

        Also, you ASKED if something was mainstream (and it obviously is and you knew that beforehand). How is answering the question appealing to popularity anyway?

        Yeti demolished you pretty well, and would have absolutely wrecked you, but maybe not so great for the thread? Regardless, you need to work on your general behavior and common sense. It's not your opinion that I deleted.

        All he did was reply with his feelings. The closest I got to being disrespectful was my post about the Gulf Arab states, who are THE REASON Muslims have a bad name worldwide. Yeti demolished nothing because I am for refugees, I am just not for unrestricted immigration. It's amazing that you're moderating something you know so little about. But I guess that is the privileges of being a mod, huh? Always being right, even when you're wrong?

        I haven't weighed in on the issue at all. You're just being a colossal ponce, and I'd rather you do that on my wall than subject better users to it.

        But it does have its consequences too. Stop lashing out and acting like a fool.

      not that it matters but the producer wanted an american for the show so he pretended to be one, his natural voice is more pleasing to the ear. anyway the point was watch jeeves and wooster for early laurie -not sure why you jumped on the accent part and still got it wrong, but then you are american so maybe it offended you

        finally i wouldn't say it is a personal attack when your flaws are directly affecting your ability to argue, but you will continue to do as described anyway - you have no reason not to in this setting where you have the apparent authority. Ill try to resist the temptation to bite in the future; i should have read your wall before the first response and left it. anyway i hope this has been informative for you and given you the sort of rise/response/emotion you were looking for

        First off

        It's true that the producer was rather adamant about an American in that role... which is not something that Hugh Laurie knew and he decided to send in his audition tape the way it was on his own. That is the difference between a relevant and an irrelevant fact.

        Actors use accents all the time. You're being a rather openly beta-englishman... nobody in the world cares which accent is better. I have seen Jeeves and Wooster, I like Hugh Laurie, if you do maybe you should watch House before turning up your nose at it.

        Second

        "directly affects your ability to argue"

        You still cannot acknowledge that all I did was take your own dickish behavior and turn it back at you. If you find what I've done impeding anyone's ability to argue, it should be your own.

        My response post is literally point-by-point a mirror of yours.


        As far as your "temptation to bite". The real lesson here, since I see that you have 3 posts in it, is that Firebot is not a serious forum, and coming out of it and leaving a message on someone's wall with an intensity of 8/10 is very poor form. You insulted me twice in your first post (and maybe being bleh you're an American is a third??? but I'm not patriotic)

        I don't know how much you actually looked at the wall that you love to talk about, but I didn't mean to imply that Gato, the only other person I argued with on this page, has his head up his ass. That was only heated because we're both passionate about it. We're on good terms. So unless you really bothered looking at other pages (which is flattering), taking that, noticing that someone was arguing with me, and trying to vicariously gang up on me is rather self-serving. No one had to insult anyone just to have a heated discussion about some asshat hack musician.

        Next time you want to post on someone's wall, maybe watch some Jeeves and Wooster and chill out yourself beforehand.

      im curious as to why u deleted my post. u seem very pro-individual expression (and thus anti-trump) in ur posts, but i feel like deleting a post that u found disagreeable for that only that reason means ur perhaps embodying the very quality u wish to degenerate
      1. vonFiedler
        vonFiedler
        It's got nothing to do with it being disagreeable. Fuck, it's not like Old_Gregg is irreproachable.

        But posts that are just a whole paragraph of snide insults don't have a place in cong. There are other places to express yourself like that, in and outside of smogon.

      What turned you off zimmer originally? The 'loud inception noise' trend in every new movie and game trailer isn't even his doing, as that was the one piece of the soundtrack he never even composed.

        You're not listening at all.

        John Williams will repeat himself over the course of a movie because that's a THEME. It's a thing that has been around for hundreds of years.

        Or do you mean that he has melodies that only last maybe a minute or two and then repeat? That's pretty overachieving as is dude.

        Hans Zimmer repeats himself over the course of multiple movies. When he uses melodic emphasis, they repeat quicker (not a great sin), but his rhythmic emphasis songs never change up and are thus very repetitive as single pieces.

        But again, all I care about is that you can't walk 5 feet and not see his music or someone using his method. Creativity and artistic integrity are sacrificed because if something makes money once, you may as well do it until the end of time. Even if I loved Hans Zimmer, why should I think that he should be the alpha and the omega of the industry?

        It's true that he's the opposite of what I like. But he's the opposite of what he likes. He fancies Rota and Morricone. But he doesn't make music he likes. He makes base music because he's very willing to be a stooge for producers. He's talked about this, that they are the real power and that you should sacrifice everything for the bottom line if you want to work. What a fucking hero.
