How sweet, Necromancer.
You were my first friend on this forum, and are one of only 2 on my friends list. I instantly started butting heads with a few people, but you were the only one who saw where I was coming from. Although I am somewhat surprised to see you mention me. I didn't know you liked me that much. The feeling is mutual.
Mighty Salami- You are the other one of my 2 friends. You and Necromancer should feel honored, it's a very exclusive list . We hit it off right when you joined the forum. You made a harmless Neil Young joke and someone was pretty rude about it. I had your back though, and that's what started our friendship. Then I came to see that we had a pretty similar taste in music, and that's always cool. I really took notice when you said Duane Allman was one of your favorite guitarists, as well as Blind Lemon Jefferson.
Il Duce- I've always thought you were a cool and reasonable guy. We always meet up at the Bob Dylan thread. I think that's how I really came to know you. I'm not sure what you think of me, but we've never really had any problems.
Chives- You've always been a cool guy. We first met on the Bob Dylan thread. You were looking for some recommendations and I gave you a few. It's always cool to meet someone who is trying to introduce himself to Dylan's music.
I think that about completes my list

Confusion will be my epitaph...

Duga just popping up there reminded me:
Duga: His posts in the "Evolution of Music: Accident or Adaptation?" were the very wisest I've come across. Even wiser than Tore. Sorry for quoting the whole thing, but every sentence is just so good:
Blaster: It can upset me a bit that people keep saying things like "angriest member" or "worst debater". What he says is very convincing and he clearly knows a fair bit about music. Sometimes emotions manifest themselves differently on the internet, and someone trying to put an argument across sensibly might sound really condescending without meaning to. I know he told someone to *@#! off, but people do that quite a bit. I also think it was very nice of him to only post about members he likes. He could have said some really unpleasant things, but he chose not to.
Odyshape: Really starting to like this guy. Everything he says is adorable, and his watch looks very nice. I want him to come over to Scotland soon.
Killcreek: It got a bit annoying when people were discussing some aspect of guitar artistry in blues music and she posted something like "Scott Stapp". Got on my nerves whenever she turned up. She just didn't want to relate to anyone.
Loathsome Pete: Worst username ever. Firstly, he is not loathsome in any way. He is a very funny, thoughtful and generally amicable contributor. And secondly, I don't think his name's really Pete. I think he's more of a Horatio, to be honest.

Haha. I can see how people can vote me "angriest member". However, I'm an a-hole when someone is an a-hole to me, and that has happened quite a bit. I get bullied a lot and people have even admitted to bullying me; Janszoon, for example. And yes, I did tell someone to f-off, but he was pretty rude to me and was quite deserving of being told to f-off.
As for the "worst debater" title, I have debated on subjects that I didnt know very much about. It probably would have been best to just stay out of it. However, I can debate just fine when it comes to subjects that I am knowledgable about.
I think what it comes down to is, some people just flat out don't like me, so they only remember negative things about me.
The "worst debater" award could easily go to Jew Sun Ra. Some of the worst debating I've ever seen came from him In the marijuana and Bob Dylan threads, but nobody has anything to say about that because he's more popular on here than I am.
It's kind of like high school, the most popular guys are the real douche bags, but nobody says anything because they don't want to ruin their popularity by association. Hahaha. I kid, I kid.

So..I will try to finish the second part of my Spill Your Guts post.
Jedey: Jedey likes a lot of the same styles and genres of music I like as well, and he just loves to correct people when they fuck up, whatever the reason may be. I suspect he walks around with 3 or 4 red ink pens sticking out of his front shirt pocket.
LoathsomePete: You just cant ask for a nicer guy, he has never refused anything that Ive ever asked him.
LOLPOCALYPSE: I just like the hell out of this guy, he is really up on his metal. One of my favorite newer members here.
Lone Misfit: I don't really know him very well, but we have talked a few times, and by reading his post, I can tell that he is a very intelligent and nice person.
MA Student: This is my Brother in the soul and funk forum. I would just love to see his band play sometimes, but he lives on the other side of the states, so.. I wish that he would show up more often, the soul/funk forum really needs a lot of more members participating there. And MA knows his funk and soul music.
Mighty Salami: I liked this guy right from the get go, its easy to tell that he has a deep passion for music, and that is a very important attribute to posses. He is quite an impressive young man to be only 16 years old. Another one of my MB Brothers.
nonsubmissivewife: She seems like to be such a caring and compassionate person. And not only that, shes also a Texan Lady.
Paloma: I just love reading her post and from time to time, I read her statements in the shout box. Shes very pretty and has a great sense of humor as well.
RezZ: This is one of first members I talked to when I first joined MB. And I have the highest of respect for him and his opinions. He likes a lot of the same music and artist that I do. The only member here at MB who recognized Eddie Money as being a good artist also. RezZ is the Man!
RMR: One of my favorite newer members also, has some outstanding thread reviews. This guy is going to go far..is my guess.
RVCA: Ive always liked this young man too. He is always very courteous and considerate as well.
SoungardenRocks: He always ask for advise and is very appreciative when others help him. Hes #1 in my book.
sk: Seems like a nice enough guy, don't really know much about him. But I think that he deserves mention.
The Batlord: This person knows his metal as well as some of the other members, if not more than most. Very entertaining at times which is a big plus.
The Big3: One of the older members that doesn't always get the respect that he definatly deserves for his contributions through the years.
The Phanastasio: She doesn't live very far from me. I think that she is just absolutely captivating as a person, with a wonderful personality. I just love her.
Tumor: She already knows that I love her very much so I don't have to say anymore than that.
Urban Hatemonger: This place just wouldn't ever be the same without him.
Vanilla: Has the kind of personality and attitude that I admire in women.
Vegangelica: If it wasn't for Erica, I would more than likely not be here as a member of MB. I actually owe it all to, and because of her. She will always be the sweetheart of MB.
Violent & Funky: One of my home state Brothers, he knows his music and is a very intelligent dude. As well as one of my good friends.

I've literally no idea if I've ever bothered doing this, and I've no particular desire to find out. Here goes, then:
AwwSugar: Tireless in welcoming new members, always respectful and level-headed. An incredibly nice girl.
Paloma: She might appear to be incredibly angry, controversial, offensive, defensive and other things that end with "sive", but she's got a heart of gold, really. I've seen her go back in a lot of the pet peeves she's had with other members, myself included.
She's also quite knowledgeable on several issues and has a penchant for some good old post-punk, which is always a good trait, especially considering the fact that I got quite a few brilliant recommendations from her. And let's not forget the fact that she devours books well beyond the humanly possible.
Kayleigh: Again, one of the nicest members on this forum. She seems to stick to more mainstream dance music mostly, but I think she has quite an open mind regarding music in general. And you know, I might just stop by Glasgow one day, I apparently have family there!
mojopinuk: Absolutely terrific taste in comedy; recommended me quite a few series which are now unquestionable favourites. Always seems calm and collected. I've very rarely seen him flying off the handle, and never without sufficient cause.
James: Brilliant lad, no question about it. He contributed to this site enormously, and at such a young age! Very easy to talk to, always a good time. And what can I say? Terrific taste in music.
TheCunningStunt: Effortlessly witty, seemingly addicted to "american indie music" and...well, and all around spiffing chap!
NumberNineDream: Incredibly knowlegeable about 60's psych, quite the skilled drawer and a fascinating person in general. Terrific singing voice as well, crystal clear!
Urban Hatemonger: Wit and hair metal, such things don't often intertwine.
right-track: This man is above any other member. He may have stopped modding, but there's still this certain je ne sais quoi that gives him that status. A Northern Soul Encyclopaedia as well.
Bulldog: Great chap, always seems in good spirits!
Janszoon One day I'll earn one of those laughing emoticons...
Pedestrian: I remember feeling she was quite passive-agressive towards me when I first joined, but she seems quite passionate about music and writing, likes Green Wing and seems to be doing a great job as a mod.
This said, I should probably get to know some of the more recent members, post more and read and comment on more of the journals.
