Obviously the only way to make things right with the world is to start a Hip-Hop group fronted by Ducks. Obviously we are to be called something involving the word Quackers. Obviously these are both terrifically terrible ideas...

Hmm, apparently they advertise being strict vegans. I hope that doesn't include the pit bulls. Already loses them kvlt points, though, it's hard to look badass eating tofu.

Nice shirt today, Tommy! You look excellent.

Thanks man, I got it last week. It was only ten bucks. Last one in my size too, I got lucky.

Man, quit hijacking your own thread, tommy. You can't make a thread and hijack it, you gotta let someone someone else do at least one of those things. Season of sharing, etc. etc.

I was recently burned after I went all in pre-flop on JQ Diamonds when my opponent had pocket nines. Would you have play this hand?

Heads-up (against only one opponent) is a raising hand and even if you knew your opponent had 99 you would be only a small underdog to him and you could call a significant re-raise.

I wouldn't open-raise all-in pre-flop unless there were other things (blinds high enough to be a significant portion of your stack, opponent being prone to fold strong hands to pressure, or opponent has been moving-in a lot to steal blinds) indicating it would be a good offensive or defensive move.

I don't think you blew it badly but committing all of your chips before you have any information about your opponent's hand is very risky. Next time, don't be so anxious to win the tournament on one hand. It's not as dramatic as a single monster pot but incrementally increasing your stack is more likely to make you a winner.

They did a split with Hatebeak, who are better than they are:

They make the parrot listen to Morbid Angel, then they poke a microphone in his face.

Incidentally, the Danish word for "quack" is "Rap".

Tommy what the fuck is an undie rock

It sounds sort of sexy?

Also you don't want to hear the recordings I made when I was twelve and the birds were the real band members. so annoying

I think "undie rock" is a term used to describe independent/underground bands without the marketing-appropriation implications attached to it that the term "indie" has.

Correct me if I am wrong.
Title: Re: This Metal Band is Fronted by Dogs
Post by: tommydski on 01 Dec 2008, 18:09
Right. I think I discussed this before on the forums. I coined the word 'undie' because now indie is a haircut or some bullshit.

Undies are what we call underwear here.

Also, someone should make an experimental electronica outfit that uses a bunch of Lyre Birds as samplers.


Title: Re: This Metal Band is Fronted by Dogs
Post by: Spluff on 01 Dec 2008, 18:23
Wouldn't it be easier just to say underground or independent?

I ask this because undie rock makes me think of dancing around in your underwear playing air guitar.

[EDIT] Wait, undies is a regional thing?

I am 100% certain that the popular '90s Australian electronic tune "Sweetness and Light" by Itchee and Scratchee used a sample of the call of the Grey Shrike Thrush as a recurring motif.

Or at least something that sounded exactly like it.

No because undie is five letters and only two syllables.

Post by: Spluff on 01 Dec 2008, 19:17
But it makes little sense to the uniformed, and the inevitable explanation you'll have to make will be far more letters/syllables than it would have taken to just say it properly.
Title: Re: This Metal Band is Fronted by Dogs
Post by: tommydski on 01 Dec 2008, 19:23
Wait, the fact that's it's needlessly, obtusely esoteric will limit the appeal and usage?

Oh no.
Title: Re: This Metal Band is Fronted by Dogs
Post by: Nodaisho on 01 Dec 2008, 19:29
Actually, I think the relation to underwear will increase the usage.
Title: Re: This Metal Band is Fronted by Dogs
Post by: Johnny C on 01 Dec 2008, 19:42
Indie, hipster and scene are going to be used interchangeably to describe the music of this decade five years down the road anyways. We might as well coin a term to help us recognize what we listen to versus what Rolling Stone will say we listened to.

Honestly, it's just a joke word. I've used it about five times on this forum in total.

It's not actually some grand sweeping statement, just a silly little in-joke.

It's weird that this band has had two threads on two forums I frequent in the last two days, since my friend first told me about them like 4 years ago. They had completely left my consciousness until this week.
