NP:Deftones-No Ordinary Love (Sade cover)

after breezing through some of Ian Robinson's articles on Metal, i finally understand why people hated this guy so much. he represents everything i hate about internet elitists, particualry of the metal variety.

- he hates what he's supposed to hate (emo, Fred Durst, movies that don't have zombies in them, new Metallica, Paris Hilton, boy bands, etc) and tries to make it look like he's "telling it likes it is".

- he complains about bands like Lamb of God, Shadows Fall, Unearth, and Hatebreed not getting their due (Hatebreed's vocalist gets a "promote your band week in and week out" Free Card when he hosts Headgiver's Ball every saturday, featuring on a regular basis videos by bands such as Lamb of God, Shadows Fall, Unearth, and their overexpsoed peers) and then trashes people who don't like them as try-hards who try to hard to try hard.

- he pulls out the "you all don't have diverse musical taste" card everytime he brings up Slipknot, System of a Down, and the fucking White Stripes, saying how anyone who makes fun of him for liking them must only listen to one kind of music or some such shit.

- he talks shit about the Red Chord and Yob, but then goes on to praise Killswitch Engage and Hopesfall.

- he's causing me to yell and grind my teeth at nothing.

- he said Lost in Translation was a bad movie because "hipsters liked it". (i wonder if he said this on the set of the Dawn of the Dead remake?)

in short, this guy really is a cunt and i hate him. he's like the male equivalent of that Uranium brat in the sense that he comes off as a smug overbearing obnoxious ass-clown who got a lucky break because MTV decided they wanted to cater more to video game nerds and people who like Mudvayne.

this is going nowhere. this is dumb. i'm no better than him i guess. whatever.
