I give up. Some people seem determined to perpetuate the bad feeling, and my harping on about it will only encourage them. So I've decided to take a break from HL. I'm not flouncing off in the huff, it's just not a nice place to be any more. I may come back or I may not, but for now I don't particul...

i thought it was obvious in this instance that i wasnt joking or being conciliatory- i was pissed off and being confrontational with intent to upset. :? how do you fight back where you come from? :?: I thought I'd made it clear I was asking everyone to stop fighting. We're all pissed off and look w...

of course confront me directly as i usually have to correct a misinterpretation or misunderstanding of things i've said (my inefficient communication skills i'm sure rather than your incomprehension).

OK, as I've been named x times as one of the obviously guilty ... I see that I've partly behaved like in this lovely video (and worse) with the clear difference that I lack (lost) the humour that is thankfully present there ... Personal attacks and shouting rounds are neither helpful nor pleasant. ...

Agreed, as little actual touching as possible. Now everyone go to your rooms and think about what you've done. (AAE optional.)

First, let me make clear that of course I agree mods have every right to personal opinions. That argument was unfair and unworthy. However, I do agree HL isn't as nice a place as it was. I don't think it's entrenched opinions, though, or taking sides. I think it's simply that some people here (and n...

If the article was actually funny, I might have some sympathy, but saying musicians shouldn't voice their opinions on big issues, or that being wealthy invalidates any opinion on poverty or homelessness is just mean-spirited. And if a song's well-written, then the subject can't make it a bad song. I...

Attempted the dwarf musician and had a nervous breakdown just doing the base! I hate it when that happens. There's one of Satoshi Kamiya's Dragon models that I've tried folding three times and I still can't do it. One of his weird half-sink-unsink folds and whoops the paper rips. At exactly the sam...

I've never tried any of Eric Joisel's models, but a quick look at his old site is pretty daunting! Well, you weren't wrong. Attempted the dwarf musician and had a nervous breakdown just doing the base! Having got that far, I will be foolhardy enough to try and finish it, but I definitely won't get ...

I think you're missing the point there. He's not trying to sound like the Sisters. He's saying people criticise him for sounding like the Sisters, when really some similarity is inevitable because he's the guitarist on both.

It's really strange, but the last Sisters gig I was at - Manchester Ritz last year - didn't feel like that at all. It's very subjective though. In fairness I haven't been for a while, but that's because I wasn't prepared to go any more, and still am not. Even when people say they've improved, "not ...

"Adam dislikes digital releases." Going with that narrative, Adam, effectively, withheld :von: from releasing music. An employee. Simply impossible. There's little doubt a written agreement exists, which very much lays out how much say Adam has over Sisters material created during his tenure. No. C...

It's a habit of Von-bashing that started already in the early days ... and was happily continued by ... they know who they are.

Thought of all of those, but can't do recognisable models. Clues (such as sugar cubes) and clever hints would be great for one of those puzzle pictures, but for something like this, people need to see it straight away or they'll just go away confused. But I've now done my ten lords in their hunting ...

Who’s to say that Von isn’t doing the songs the way HE wants them to sound currently? If he wanted them to sound the same as they did back in the day, he’d surely do that wouldn’t he? He certainly doesn't want anyone to hear the vocals. Or much else other than white noise. But I think the c...

More stuff about Corgan & 12 string guitars.
Personally, I think "jingle jangle" is the wrong description.
I'd have said "shimmering". It's much more goff :D
He says "shimmer" too. Jingle jangle shimmer. I've always thought of them as jangly guitars.

I know. I'll probably fail miserably, but nothing ventured. I might at least get something usable. And if not, the figure I've used to make the lord is quite variable (it's already appeared as three of my dancers), so that's a fallback. As far as lords are concerned, I think we may have a winner.

Ooh blimey I've never attempted anything by Eric Joisel. There might be something in his work that could do as a Lord?
