Yeah, I can imagine a typical Batty update:

"This week some losers did something in their crappy journals, but who cares? My journal has [fifty pages later] Oh and there are other journals here but they all suck balls so check them out if you're a poser, I don't care.
Toodles!"

You could just copy/paste that for a few weeks, and no one would know the difference.

Alright, so maybe I'll give this a shot. I'm not about to go figure out almost two months of updates by myself, let alone read (i.e. skim) them all, so if you've made updates since Trollheart's last post here, then shoot me a PM. If I don't hear from you, then I'll just try do what's been done since the beginning of October. Or just be lazy. No promises.

I think it was more your contention that his, and everyone else's journal, is boring that annoyed him. Perhaps if you had wrote "About a millionth as awesome as mine", he would have understood...

I don't really care either way. It was about time for Ki's weekly bitch-a-thon anyway.

Well, at least I'm consistent.

Default Because you guys asked for it....


Previously, in Journal Land:

After taking a month off in September I of course missed out on a whole lot of updates, so this is going to try to address that, while skimming even more over your journals than I do usually. Itís just to try to give an overall flavour of what you guys have been doing while I was relaxing by the Ö I mean, hard at work, writing Metal Month III. As it will cover all the entries since my departure at the very end of August, however, there will be no other sections, awards, cartoons or anything like that. Itís going to be something of a minor miracle if I can get all the updates done and ready for publication before tonight, so letís get going.

Going back as far as then, it would appear that Anteater is again first to get the show on the road, and in Anteater's Yacht Rock Extravaganza it seems he just had the one update, back at the begining of September, with his Yacht Rock playlist, featuring among others Ed Motta, Bobby Caldwell, Boz Scaggs and Donald Fagen. Music to sail to!

He was much busier in AOR: The Journal where, along with his partner in music Unknown Solider, they were finishing counting down the top albums of 1976, with Styx at number 2 with The Grand Illusion and who else but Boston with their self-titled classic debut right at the top? Oddly enough, US either got confused or there was a misprint, or theyíre skipping 1977 entirely and heading into the top ten for 1978? Anyway, before that (and Iím sure the boys will clear up any confusion) theyíre looking at the self-titled debut (you know what? Iím making that an acronym from now on!) from The Babys. Their last meaningful entry through was September 23, so that was almost a month ago. Expect to see them explode back into this journal soon. I hope.

[url]http://www.musicbanter.com/members-journal/82818-batlords-manowar-discography-hell-music-banter.html[/img] got kicked back into life as he finished off the studio albums last week with The Triumph of Steel and Sign of the Hammer. Even if you hate Manowar you really need to read these reviews as they can be bloody hilarious! Batty wasnít done there though, as he opened a whole new journal at the end of September which he titled The Batlord's Kitchen Sink Journal of Anything and Everything He Wants to Write About, and afdter writing some scathing prose about Dave Mustaine, Megadeth and Metallica, he is now into YouTubes who play games online for the enjoyment of others, as well as meeting up with Kesha to kick some cop ass. Definitely worth a look.

Black Francis mused on some sequels or remakes he would enjoy in Retro gems: From NES to the PS, with Pokemon Snap and Megaman among them, also looking into Discworld and Brigandine.

Two more - Log files for Weekend Astronauts - from Freebase Dali, with Nameless and The End. Though it isn't. The end, I mean.

One entry from Fiddler's Adventures On Patrol which came early in September as he told us all about the Community Outreach Program heís involved in. Good work, man!

Goofle posts unreal bangers and maybe talks about them if he stops grooving for a sec like Carly Rae Jepsen and Kitty, while http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...63-2015-a.html winds to a close as he hits 2014 with the likes of Kitty, Lana del Rey, Liz and Run The Jewels.

A journal that Iíve ben a little apprehensive about approaching is Sounds from Innerspace, as I know Innerspaceboy writes a phenomenal amount in a week, and god knows what heís been getting up to over almost two months! So here are some edited highlights: Flea Market Funk, Downtempo classics, Psybient Dreams, The Last.fm project, The End of Scrobbling, Basic Hip Ö. and thatís just September! This month, so far, heís written about Underworldís 20th anniversary LP, K-Mart and taken us on a guide around his house! Phew! And thatís only some of what you can find in his journal. This guy is intense!

September was Horror Game Month down at http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...is-arcade.html, all of which I missed, and I hope he wonít mind if, instead of going through all the entries, I instead reproduce his handy index to that month, here
[QUOTE=Ki;1632256]

September 1st: Introduction & Outlast

September 9th: Why Jump Scares Are Awesome

Week 5: Sept. 28th - 30th

September 28th: Favorite Characters From Horror Games II
September 29th: Creepy / Depressing Moments in Video Games
September 30th: The End / Finale

Having completed this mega-feat, he then moved on, as this month dawned, to ďCompanions in Video GamesĒ, with first pets and then humans focussed on. Now heís moved on to Rampage Knights and This War of Mine. Lots of work put in there Ki: sorry I missed it, though Iím no games fan nor indeed one of horror, so I probably would just have skimmed it anyway. I can see it was something of a labour of love through, so kudos.

Another new journal to start up during this period was 100 albums worthy of your time, which as yet has to come up with an entry, but itís early days: only began this week.

There was more Experimental Music on Spotify Worth Checking Out as Occulthawk introduced us to Aufgehoben at the end of August, the sailing-close-to-the-line named Psacal Niggenhemper in September and Anthony Pateras and Robin Fox last week.

Oriphiel brought the very entertaining Blood and Diamonds: A High Energy Story to a close with the final chapters and even an epilogue

and as one journal ends so another starts up (Circle of life!), with Overcast's Music Journal featuring his favourite album so far this year, Mount Eerieís Sauna.

Planktons - What The Hell Am I Listening To? answered that question last week with Eric Mantel

while in Qwertyy's Journal of Music Reviews and Other Assorted Ramblings he was talking about the movie Straight Outta Compton and his vinyl collection

The Extensive History of Music continues as TechnicLePanther tells us about the ancient music of Grece

while a new journal opens from a new member, looks like heíll have plenty to contribute to the community as Traveling Alone takes us onA Trip Through Americana, with Uncle Tupelo and Todd Snider.

My own journals of course went into stasis while I was away, and even now that Iím back I dont have time to attend to any ofthem while Metal Month III is in full swing. Rather than drone on about whatís been happening in that, with up to four updates per day every day, Iím just going to direct you to The Metal Month III Progress Thread here where you can check out whatís being posted. Nothing new will happen in any of my other journals until this completes, as Iím sure you all understand.

That just leaves the ever-reliable Pounding Decibels- A Hard and Heavy History, where Unknown Soldier is wrapping up the top ten for 1985, with Possessed, SOD and Exodus before we hit the top three with Slayer, Megadeth and number one for this year, Celtic Frost.

and of course where would we be without Yorkedaddyís seminal Music Banterus: A Fantasy Epic? Catch up on the latest episodes now! And tell me what theyíre about: I havenít had a minute to read them yet..

So sorry for the long delay guys; hope I got everyone and if I didn't, well let me know. Next week we'll try to get things back to some semblance of normality.

Till then, as ever,
Toodles!
