Sorry to disappoint you, but there's no such thing as Journal of the Month.

Default The Music Banter Members' Journals Update Thread, November 2017



You may noticed I've lost a little weight, due to overwork and personal stuff happening at home. But I'm still here to guide you through what those who can still be bothered updating their journals have written over the last month, so let's get to it before I fade away...

Batty kicks us off with his top ten tracks played this month, which rather surprisingly, features quite a lot of Kesha. Read all about it here http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...ite-about.html or, if you have any musical taste at all, avoid it like the plague. But if you really won't be told, then head over to http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...s-journal.html where he's reviewing the entire new Kesha album. Hold me back.

A new job for Goofle means a new journal, and in http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...aves-safe.html he's going to be giving us a rundown of the gigs and festivals he works security on, kicking off with Slowdive at ... well, he doesn't say where. But then Mister Goofle Goes to Glastonbury. Read on, and weep, ye who were not there. Like me. I don't care. But you probably do.

If Ked is following Mord into self-imposed exile from here (see further), then she's left one hell of a journal entry to remember her by in http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...puc-scale.html!

You'll usually find weird and often wonderful artists in http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...ong-picks.html and this month is no exception, with The Dark Element , Luar Na Lubre, Nightwish, Men at Work, Vuur, Marillion (yay!), Calan, The Agonist and a full review of the new Tori Amos. Those bands mentioned aren't all he has this month, there just simply isn't enough room to list them all, so go check his journal out.

Mord continues to try to educate us to some of his favourite artists in http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...um-musica.html, including Anais Mitchell, Rich Mullins, Mumford and Sons (!), Nest, Of Monsters and Men, Penguin Cafe Orchestra and the usual slew (and I mean slew: we're talking pages and pages here!) of other artists. And it seems his journal is over, for now. Taking a long break, though for how long he don't say. Hey, we'll miss ya, ya crazy Christian!

http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...dern-rock.html has a feature on 7 Seconds, while in http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...antiquity.html there are Grannies about...

Philip Jeck, Bill Dixon, and a whole lot of close-to-porno on http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...p-lighter.html. Oh, and fuck Tim O'Reilly. Apparently.

http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...crap-heap.html is back, with some love for Holst and his Planets Suite.

A new journal from Rubber Soul as he promises to spill on his experiences in this writer's forum he belonged/still belongs to in http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...mb-sooner.html.

And now, appearing for I believe the first time in

it's Elphenor, with this rather good advice:

absolutely don't force it because it isn't a race or anything

but just like you usually start with a couple singles when getting into a brand new artist you're usually going to start with the more accessible bands in a genre and work your way up

I'm gonna give to MicShazam, who has really been putting in some serious work on his journal

Unnecessary Quote of the Month (haven't had the time/can't be arsed to create a logo yet) goes to Mindfulness. Not only did he quote the entire post of Batty's exhaustive review of Kesha's Animal to reply, but ALL the videos too. And all he added was a clapping emoticon. Jeez man: don't you know you can edit your quote? You don't need to include the whole thing!

Funny Post

of the Month

is again a sort of exchange. There's no point posting just the one reply; it's much funnier when you read the whole thing. From Mord's now-on-hold Journal, but courtesy of his better half:
As usual, it was Batty who kicked things off with this comment

to which Ked responded in a North Korean way, ie disproportionate response, though hilarious I think you'll agree...

It generally amuses me endlessly to read the screeds and attempted barbs of those who mock what they have never known. Clearly, you have neither given nor received, neither experienced nor observed, such devotion as my darling Sir inspires. I call him so, not because he forces me, nor even requires it, but because my love for him demands it. I initiated it, actually, and he permitted it because he knows how much I respect him. But this was simply too disrespectful of him for me to laugh, so instead I replied.

You have not known what it is to be so thoroughly loved, nor will you, for you lack the capacity to attract and retain even friends, let alone a lover. This is why, when the day ends, my darling Sir is neither lonely nor alone, while you--you are both.
Batty followed that up with an apology-not-apology

So you do you, but just know that nothing on this earth will ever stop me from being as big of a cock to you as I would anyone else. Cause you have a stupid beard.

Edit: Oh **** I didn't realize that was you and not Mord, but I guess all that still applies. You have a stupid beard.

Edit to the edit: Wait when did I impugn your chastity? Is this one of those things where your idea of chastity is vastly different from my own?
Time for me to stir the pot, then.

Note: this should not, repeat not, prevent you from casting some curse on him, if such is within your power.
And Batty came back with

Nah, she takes being called a witch as a compliment.
And I sign off in triumph! Sort of.

I kind of expected/thought/hoped she would. It was certainly meant as one.
Finally, let me just wish

on behalf of everyone here to Mord (and, I guess, Ked) who have taken a sabbatical from the forum, hopefully not a permanent one. We wish you both well and hope to see you back here at some point in time. Meanwhile, rest assured, we'll work on corrupting your daughter to the best of our collective ability! Sayonara!

Till next month,
Toodles!

Year. Not month. Year. Even I couldn't listen to that much Kesha in a month.

This was a good one! Most unecessary quote of the month was especially hilarious

Another thing I like about these summaries is that I always manage to miss something good in the journals section.

As for the workhorse of the month award, I'd like to thank my parents, the voices in my head and having no life. In defence of anyone who didn't win this prestigious award I'd like to point out that my journal is mostly just me posting a wad of Youtube links. I'd like to do more writing if I could stop being so lazy.
