Recommended Posts

The new Retrospect Records disc called Alleyrat is total junk!! I can't beileve they have ripped off another band!!

 

LOL!!! Just joking, I think the new Alleyrat CD is KILLER!! Well done Sam, fantastic artwork too!!

 

I look forward to more top notch Retrospect releases.

 

P.S. When I saw that you had released the Big Guns album, I nearly fell of my chair as we, Suncity Records have signed the Brittish version of the band and will be releasing their AWESOME second unreleased album early next year!!

 

Kind Regards

Dave

Hummmm....

 

I'm not sure what this wise arse is trying to do but it seems like I can't even say anything positive about Sam's releases?? I have never said I don't buy Sam's releases, it's just that before I do buy them, I have to know that the band is getting their rightful royalties due to Sam's checked past. Sweat Teaze, Boss, etc.... What don't you understand about that?? I pride myself on my morals, you can do what you want!!

 

I have tried to refrain myself from answering these wise arse troublemakers (Mullethead comes to mind), this is my last time.

 

Kind regards

I feel special that I am mentioned. Thanks David! Since you brought me up, I guess I'll give my opinion....When you go after someone every single time you post...you can expect people to respond as they do. I think part of the problem is that no one can take you as being sincere when you say something nice about Sam because it comes off as YOU being the smart arse. Just my two cents...

 

By the way, if you would like to start posting nice & people really believing you are being sincere...don't start off a post like this: The new Retrospect Records disc called Alleyrat is total junk!! I can't beileve they have ripped off another band!!

 

Not everyone thinks you are kidding....

 

The Wise Arse Troublemaker,

My 2 cents, but I don't think there was anything wrong with David's original post at all. It comes across as a sincere compliment. The other people in this thread responding to it are the ones acting like pinheads IMO.

P.S. I say this having wished on many occasions that David would just keep his trap shut, as he has a tendency to post in a manner that does his label no good whatsoever, but in this case I think he's done nothing wrong...

Well, me being one of those pinheads :P , you have to admit Dan that when you read a zillion posts that go something like this...

 

 

You're a fraud, you're an a-hole, you're not honest, etc...

 

that it kind of makes it tough to believe David is sincere. Constantly bashing someone and then saying great job is a bit of a 180 wouldn't you agree? If Sam were to do the same thing to David I would feel no different. Maybe I missed something, I dunno...

 

Again, just my perspective.

I usually don't get involved in these conversations but fuck it, you only live once right? And no, I'm not just agreeing with Dan to suck up, not sure what that would get me anyway. ;)

 

David's post sounded like a sincere compliment to me as well. In general David does do some (okay more than some) slagging, no doubt about it and I think we (and Suncity) would all be better off without it. That being said, the totally over the top responses from a variety of sources (and not just in this particular thread) kinda make me want to defend him. But that's just me, and who am I to be taken seriously? :D

I disagree,

I found the opening joke very tasteless and the second part is self-promotion. Between those I didnt see any complimenting at all, but it is my own opinion anyway, which I should have kept for myself, oh well... whatever

Look , I don't really care if David was sincere or not.....this guy is obviously obsessed with monitoring my existence 24/7 and keeps bringing up shit from a long time ago. His comments are not wanted and not needed in the forum, so from now on my response to David will always be to 'fuck off'.

David is a smarmy , slimey , two-faced , back-stabbing , under-handed antagonist who I have NO respect for. He'll PM me being as nice as can be and then the next minute , take every cheap shot he can in a public forum.

Why even bother David? Just don't even comment.

The irony is simply mind boggling... in one fell swoop, you've managed to do the very thing that you're accusing David of doing at the same time you're calling him out.

 

Both of you spend far too much time and energy needling, provoking, and responding to, one another...

David is not just responding to threads about Restrospect, he's starting them. I don't care how 'innocent' or 'friendly' the intent was, everybody knows this thread was going to eventually get ugly.

 

Just like Marium and Emily, two grade one kids in my wife's class who are now no longer allowed to sit beside each other, talk to each other, play together at recess or even look at each other. When they get in line one is at the front and the other at the back, when they are in the gym they are never on the same team and when they are asked to leave each other alone, it seems to add fuel to the fire and the fighting escalates.

BTW, my wife can't wait for this school year to be over and I don't blame her.

Ok guys, new rule...Sam can't respond in any thread related to Sun City & Dave can't respond in any thread related to Retrospect. Sheesh...

 

 

I suggested this a few weeks ago but it never worked.

 

Ok, here's a an idea:

 

To keep the peace, the mods and I will delete any post made by either Sam or David either in response to one another, or referring to one another or their respective businesses. This also applies to any employees or represenatives of either party.

 

I've been tempted to do this at times in the past, but figured it would not be fair to delete one's posts but not the others... also I had said that "anything goes" in the Retrospect section.

 

With this, there will be no wondering if certain topics are off limits: any reference is off limits, including vague allusions.

 

If folks behave themselves, we'll never have to delete anything. Just pretend the other does not exist.

 

How's that? Fair?

Believe it or not.... I've gotta side with Dave on this one. I know... shocking ...huh?

 

I for one didn't see anything wrong with the original post. Maybe Dave has just come to realize that Retrospect isn't going away... and he actually just wanted to compliment Retrospect on what it is doing right. He may not agree with everything Retrospect is doing, but it seemed to me like a honest compliment.

 

This is coming from someone who has had some very negative things to say about Dave & Suncity.

Dave , I didn't have a problem either until his 2nd post.

 

Anyhoo , I actually agree with Dan (for a change) on the 'idea' , so let's get it started.

 

Announcement coming soon in regards to lots of new signings and releases....

 

Retrospect is on track to slate its 200th release before Xmas.

 

Isn't that unbelievable? 200 releases within 15 months - Who would have thought? Thanks goes to so many here at the forum for hooking me up with so many artists and believing in this label...

 

You guys rock!

Sounds like a great idea, plus I'll save a ton of money on popcorn. ;)

 

 

Blue.... That's one way to look at it.

 

I agree that maybe they shouldn't post in the others "area". David shouldn't post in the Retrospect topic. But to be fair... I think maybe David and Suncity should be given their own "area" also. That way Sam will have a more clear view of where to stay away from.

 

At this point in time, everyone knows where the regulars here at HH stand. So there really is no need to keep this bickering going.

 

Best of luck to both Retrospect & Suncity.

 

I know many of you don't care what I think.... but there it is anyway. :P

    • You brought the man out of me, so many times, easily. 
    • One of my all-time favorite Christian rock-ballads.
    • I don't mind at all. That was the only way I could make you say, "Oh God!" without it being blasphemy. 
    • For the record, I would totally check out a "Do you want to Bang your Librarian?" thread. Also, when I first glanced at this post, I thought it read, "Do you want to Bang your Libertarian?" and I immediately thought, "No way in hell does anybody here want to bang Leykis." 
    • Agree...that sounds better. Still potential here and Erik makes it listenable.    This first single could've been pretty good with a different structured chorus so hopefully other tunes are a bit better. Still not sure its going to be melodic/catchy enough for my tastes which is generally my problem with this  genre.
    • My apologies, cob, but didn't Cody say "the only thing Atheists all have in common is we do not subscribe to the myth of the deity, god or higher power, of any kind, this is it, then we are worm food, not all Atheists subscribe to the same meaning or philosophy, we don't all believe in the same science, or anything, I personally feel as though..." Sorry if I misread, but that doesn't really sound like a group that are fundamentalist in their certainty. In fact, none of that really sounded to me how you describe it.  What does intrigue me, though, is that you acknowledge that we are just a speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant... yet religious folk believe that there's a god out there somewhere and his only concern is whether this speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant follows the gospel or not? And not only this speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant, but every single other speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant that has ever existed? Of the entire universe throughout the entirety of time, all this god really cares about is whether each speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant is following the gospel. Because if not, that speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant is sure as heck going to hell. Sounds like the type of being I'd like to devote my single human life to.  Sorry dudes, like I say, I'm not an atheist (that I know of), and I'm sure as heck not a religious man. What do you call someone who is just honest enough to admit that I don't have a clue how we started, or why we are, or what will happen when we're dead? And I also believe that no one alive now, or whom has lived before us, has these answers either. Nor will they ever have them. No matter how steadfast someone is in their belief of whatever they believe, no one will ever be able to answer, with 100% certainty, those questions. 
    • And a small but important  update. Had an MRI scan two weeks back and just before I went in for a weeks chemo. The day I was discharged the doctor who discharged me gave me the results of the MRI scan and confirmed my feelings that the brain cancer had reduced in size, so everything it seems is going to plan.
    • I'd like to think so too, but I don't think it is. But I am always weary of what's being reported in Australian media. Are we just seeing everything from the hysterical, moronic and blown out of proportion version that the Aussie media feeds us? Or are there actually things happening outside of this country that are as hysterically panic driven as they are here? From the few other things I've heard, globally, it does seem that this variant has earned it's own little slice of worldwide panic, so I guess we'll see. This Panic First, Ask Questions Later mentality that the world has adopted is honestly an (even further) embarrassment to humanity. If I didn't have children I would confess that the time has certainly well and truly come for the human race to be nuked and made extinct. I ponder how much I hated humans in 2019. It took 40 years to build up that level of hatred. I am not even kidding to say that those 40 years of built up hatred has probably doubled, if not tripled or even quadrupled in the space of the two years since. What I think of what has become of the human race in the space of two years has no words left to describe it.
