friday posbang thread
This week, WE CAN'T LOSE. LET'S CELEBRATE.
What? It's almost 10am on Friday and no one has created a posbang thread yet?!?! Well, that certainly needs to change. Let the banging begin!!!
Today is the day I get the pleasure of changing my avatar. For those of you who don't know why I have a pink pony as my avatar (so probably all of you), I stuck my nose into a conversation I didn't belong in and paid the price dearly.
If you care for further explanation, that is the link.
I have gotten a couple suggestions about keeping this avatar. I've been told I stand out in the comments. Others have suggested I "slap a block m on that puppy" (per mgouser oldcityblue). So in honor of the last day to vote Denard for the cover, I will have a little vote myself.
It's simple, up-vote the post if I should keep it, down-vote if I should trash it.
Also, for all you crazy photo-shopperz out there, please find the enlarged photo in the link above, have fun, and submit it in the comments below. My favorite, if the people decide for me to keep the avatar, will be my new avatar!
Thanks for participating! Vote Denard! Go Blue! Beat Indiana!
Happy Posbangin' Friday, everyone! Time to do our civic duty (don't worry, it's nothing like jury duty) and upvote each poster to his/her full five. What better way to celebrate the weekend? This weekend's task for me is MacGuyvering some backpacking gear and making a few last-minute preparations for a hike.
- What are your weekend plans?
- Any MGoBackpackers out there?
- Have you ever met an MGoBlogger in real life, or found out someone you know is an MGoBlogger?
- Favorite grilled cheese variants?
I've actually only ever met two MGoBloggers, one who posts occasionally on the board, one who doesn't. This is rather surprising, given my residence in the Mitten State. Have you ever run into someone, guiltily admitted your obsession with MGoBlog, and discovered they were a fellow MGoAddict?
Happy Friday everyone! Right around now is when the winter doldrums reach their peak. Areas close to Lake Michigan should see more than half a foot of snow in the next day, and the UP will get in excess of a foot, because obviously. Looks like cross-country skiing is in the works for me this weekend. What are your weekend plans?
From time to time it's nice to refresh our stale music libraries with a few fresh songs or artists. I always enjoy hearing something a little off the beaten path. We've all heard the Beach Boys, Metallica, Toby Keith, etc. How about your favorite, less-well-known bands? I offer two:
Chaotech: A rather interesting metal outfit out of Helsinki, Finland. They've come out with one EP, €xi$t, and a couple singles. I strongly recommend listening to the EP straight-through in its entirety if you happen to be a headbanger. Tracks "Apparatus of Reason" and "Decreation" are particularly noteworthy (both Soundcloud links).
Barilari: Argentinian rocker. Adrian Barilari was one of the founders of the heavy metal movement in Argentina back in the 80s as a member of the group Rata Blanca. His current solo project is reminiscent of perhaps early-80s Iron Maiden. In addition to "Abuso de Poder" embedded below, I also suggest the track "Algo Magico"
Anyways, given the diversity of tastes on the board, it's pretty likely that if you suggest some of your favorite music (of any type or genre), at least one other poster will appreciate it. Happy listening!
Edit: By the way, a posbang thread isn't a posbang thread unless you posbang people. So posbang away!
