Tool Vinyl BUYING GUIDE (Original/Boots, etc.)

Recommended Posts

Fuckin thank you jhulud. So tired of a certain few individuals on here that like to lord their musical tastes over everyone else's. Always showing up in threads for bands they apparently can't stand. Spewing their sarcasm and circle jerk jokes. It's fucking annoying and one of the main reason I don't visit VC much anymore. Funny thing is they all know who they are too. Fuck you dudes.

I had a pretty long hiatus from this place not long ago. I'm beginning to recall the specific instances of why I drifted away from here. Its not a big deal but it certainly doesn't qualify as an incentive to keep coming back.

I almost want to believe McPherson is Maynard and that was Adam Jones

Maynard would never take to the time to justify the sound of his bandmates. I'm the fool who thought describing why people might find themselves disinterested in new Tool might be helpful. Maynard would have just said "bummer."

Sooooo...let me understand this. 

 

Dude walks in here and gives his honest & lengthy opinion & review of the song as a fan of the band, and people are giving him shit & calling him pretentious?!?! 

 

Get the fuck out of here with that shitty attitude. He’s a fan who loves the band & expressed his appreciation.  If you don’t like it, take your toxic bashing somewhere else. 

 

Promote what you love instead of bashing what you hate. 

 

 

Toxic bashing? Damn, the threshold for toxicity is really low these days. Pretty sure real toxicity is slut shaming and personal attacks a la the AILD thread, or maybe JFC personally threatening people from this thread via PM... but hey maybe toxicity really IS sarcasm and snarky one-offs that fade into obscurity and from everyone's consciousness within an hour or two... Who knew you'd ever find sarcasm and snark on the internet?

 

It was totally a dick comment but the level of personal outrage is pretty funny, and this is from someone who thinks intentionally antagonizing online for the sole purpose of eliciting a reaction is fuckin' lame.

 

PS- I'm finding that I am quite indifferent to Tool, so asserting that I made an offhand comment because I am filled with hate for Tool/Tool fans is a logical fallacy. Not doing much to dispel those Tool fan stereotypes, though.

 

PPS- That shit WAS pretentious, just like his essay sig about how only black vinyl is good enough for his cultured, audiophile certified ears. Read his essay again. He wasn't even critiquing the song. Because within his first two sentences he says he didn't listen to it. But he did say this:

"If you half-listen to any of their songs waiting for a special guest to come in and do a hook and flip the whole dynamic of the core band on its head, you're listening to the wrong band. If you're looking for traditional tropes of a growing and changing artist or band that is led by a single songwriter who decides now we have a fiddle and an accordion on this track and then we have a piano leading these two tracks and we're ex-Beatles who are writing 3 minute pop songs, you're listening to the wrong band. These guys paint with the same brushes and explore how to make new textures using the same types of voices and the same exact instrumentation for the most part on every album."

 

...Nah you're right, there's no pretension there whatsoever. This dude has never talked down to anyone, I'm sure.

You really got me figured out!

 

I think you just don't like people in general and get off on being a dickhead and don't like the people who call you out for it.

 

I actually used to like you on here believe it or not. Then I followed you on Instagram and your whole sad/notice me attitude made me want to go crawl in a hole and die. Do you actually enjoy life or are you attracted to the negativity? Talk about someone not adding anything to the boards. You are the definition of useless here.

The irony is palpable. I don’t think sunshine likes me much but dude is capable of taking barbs online, dishing them back out, AND is able to talk about music without launching into vitriolic personal attacks. That’s more than you can say.

I literally treat everyone the same way, the difference between you and Justin though is he takes EVERYTHING to heart and keeps it there like a goddamn ex girlfriend. It doesn't help that he only posts in meme band threads i poke fun at so he assumes I'm one way only which isn't true at all.

The irony is palpable? Personal attacks? Did you not just read his last comment? How is what I'm doing any different than him?

But but he actually used to like you! Doesn’t that just tear you apart inside?

 

anyways since this IS a tool thread and I’m done crying about the internet meanies, I listened to Aenima and it was pretty cool but I’m not having the transcendental experiences others seem to have. I’m gonna give lateralus a whirl today.

 

maybe a couple tabs of lsd will get me there...

 

edit- hey Justin, two wrongs don’t make a right, but they definitely make you a fuckin asshole who went all in on personal attacks after someone said you didn’t add anything to discussions.

See what I mean? "Meme band threads" You just won't get over the fact that music is subjective and people can like who they want. Sorry I don't dick ride everything that Nothing puts out.

 

Maybe I do take things too seriously sometimes. Who cares. I just don't like you and when this stuff I read has your handle attached to it I just can't help but say something.

 

Also, I do realize that what I said about Instagram and your personality was a bit far. I apologize for that...that's not usually who I am.
