MOD [12 Jul 2006|10:47pm]

[ mood | bitchy ]

OK. Guys, I'm so sorry I've been a terrible MOD. I had grade 12 happening and a new job, so I was under crazy stress. School is over for me now, so I'll have more time to be on livejournal and such.

... Anyone have any ideas for the community? It was never really that active, but it seems almost dead now (again, mostly my fault. lol)... please don't let it die!

Haha, so yeah, leave your ideas in the comments, and we'll work on making this community snazzy.

Love, your slacker mod,

Don't know how to do this [05 May 2006|09:26am]

I just wanted to share with everyone a song by The Who called "The Real Me"

It's not as well known as some of their other works, but Entwhistle's bass work on this song is just beautiful and I thought I would share it with everyone.

On Yousendit: The Real Me- The Who

I have a question to all you single people.

I'm writing a story on how over-rated Valentine's Day is...and I wanna know your thoughts.

"Let’s steer away from the couples, and go to the single people. This is such a depressing time for us single folks. Yes, we have our friends to give those cheap Valentine cards to and our families to think about, but what about that special someone?
There isn’t a special someone. Single people just sit there on the sidelines watching other lovey-dovey couples stroll by sucking face and holding hands, giggling and looking starry-eyed.
There’s already enough of that in school as it is.
Valentine’s day is over-rated and just ridiculous. Love should be celebrated everyday, whether with a significant other or not. It’s called mutual love, people, and it doesn’t hurt to love your friends."

That was just a couple paragraphs from my article.
I need a single person's pov to get this done. I'd prefer the negative side, but if you've got some good, sweet, but I prefer the negative.

Thanks guys!

Yes. I am promoting.... but it's a cool music community. I'd encourage you to join. You claim 4 bands, and then earn points and use them to challenge for other bands, or change your claims and stuff. It's pretty cool, actually.

[ mood | hopeful ]

Guys, I'm sorry... Beth and I have been slacker, nonexhistant mods, and there's no excuse (unless you count school...).

I looked back, and added the bassists to the interests that you all suggested, and if there's others you want added, just post about it.

Also, if someone else wants to be a co-mod with me and Beth, just let us know. Perhaps if we had more people in charge, this community might become better.

So, yes.. comment if you want to be a mod, or if you have any suggestions for improvement of this community... we don't want to see it die!

I have a totally random question...

has anyone ever used a guitar slide on a bass before?
My friend Colby said that he did and it was pretty sick.
He played it for me and now I'm tempted to try it.

Hello all!

Ok, I'm up and working on French, but I was just wondering: Does anybody have any bassists that aren't in the community's interests that they would like to be there? Beth and I started the community, and just put all the bassists we could think of, but I was thinking that we'd add some of your favorite bassists, too.

Just comment with some bassists you want to add :)

Hello everybody!
Name: Steve
Age: 28
Favourite Bassists: Les Claypool, Billy Sheehan, Peter Steele and Melissa Auf der Maur.
But usually I listen to lots of different bassist like Jaco Pastorius, Victor Wooten, Jeff Berlin Alan Caron and etc.

Why you love bassists: Well first of all because I am bassist! And another good, question why I’ve become bassist? Bass Guitar is a unique instrument that stands between rhythm section and solo instrument. You can use it what ever you want. It’s just the matter of your imagination ;) Can you imagine Primus with out Les?! Or Rush with out Geddy?

Favourite Bands: Primus, Smashing Pumpkins, Type O Negative, Therion, Lacrimosa… And lots of more…

I am playing Schecter Devil Tribal Bass, and I love it so much. I found so comfortable for all types of playing (taps, slap, thingering). What else should I say?! My life could be so boring with out bass!
