I had a look through and there’s actually more chat in there than I expected. People in general must be better than me at recognising album art


#42

The entire music board. Nobody gives a shit that you, anonymous bearded white internet male, incorrectly think that the Red album is better than Pinkerton. Bore off and alphabetise your vinyls. Prick.

I like the music board. People here make a lot of jokes about it supposedly being a more aggressive board, but considering the absolute garbage I post there very rarely results in people sending me angry PMs, I think it’s a good place to post stuff about music.

Just yesterday there was a great sincere post from @Owensmaterob about Nu Metal on there and I discovered my favourite album of the year (Idles - Brutalism) on there after multiple people whose tastes often align with mine recommended it. I also recently discovered The Prep Tempel there whose back catalogue has already secured their place as my favourite Australian band (thanks again @PaintyCanNed).

I know a lot of the ire aimed at that board is in hyperbolic jest, but I do wonder why it has such a particularly bad reputation.

I find album rankings, end of year lists etc etc to be a really tedious (very male? dunno) way of talking about music/culture in general. Proper High Fidelity bollocks. Puts me off engaging with anything other than the My Vitriol thread.

I do follow the Emo Revival thread and the Heavy Music one to see what @shucks is into these days, tbf.


#45

Years ago I used to be a prominent poster on the Football Manager forums, but mainly posted in the music threads.
Here I mainly post in the football forums.

A bit weird really.

It sounds like we have similar thoughts on the more boring threads on there, but I find the same with this board too. Some are good, most are not.

If anything, I find the My Vitriol one often gets a bit OTT with its joy in the failures of that band. The speculation on the Trail Of Dead cancellation felt overly harsh.


#48

I totally agree. music board has really put me off talking about music in recent years. tried really hard to make good conversation on there, but :expressionless:


#49

You should rate your favourite ways to talk about music, and put lists at the bottom. That’ll reel them in.


#50

maybe I’ll try and gamify actually talking about music. they might go for that?


#51

I’ve gotten good chat out of there in some threads, notably the Deerhunter and Jazz threads. Avoid a lot of things in there though.


#52

This is true but i don’t think that music board regulars are generally like that?
cultural discussions on the social boards are much more likely to go that way imo


#53

The daily threads really are the absolute arse end of the site. All the worst DiSers telling everyone about how they had a shit and cycled to work.


#54

The music board always seems really friendly tbh. Great bunch of boring listicle music bastards


#55

Actually, it’s probably just because they don’t know me yet over there


#56

All my muted threads that have been active in the last 24hrs. I don’t see any of 'em! As soon as I know something I’m not interested is going to linger or reappear regularly, just get rid.


#57

The beer one that’s got about ten thousand replies. I like beer.


#58

hiya


#59

The "I READ A BOOK/IWATCHED A FILM’ threads. Nobody cares about your tedious life, Craig.


#60

Also kind of can’t be bothered with the ‘Terrible Things Posted on Social Media’ thread, and I created that thread. Always get a sinking disappointment when I see my notifications are people posting in that thread.
