AA Introducing the AWESOME APRIL NAME SURVIVOR SERIES
RIPPA posted a topic in DEFUNCT SIDE PROJECTSYeah... today is probably a weird day to announce this but this is real. Another "RIPPA wastes way to much time to hopefully distract y'all for even a few moments" thing. And it is so not March Madness. God I should have really spent more time on the name. Oh well. Ed and I were talking about the concept of the "best" wrestling name. (I think Ed has just finished watching a Terry Gordy match). Anyway - this spun out of that. I made 48 5 person Survivor Series teams and we will vote on them. I will explain how I made the teams and how the process will work in the next few posts. This is just a silly thing to be fun. It is not meant to be a "Best Name" tournament. If it was - I would have done things differently (IE: some teams could be WAY stronger). I am not really saying what criteria you should use to vote on since you will all have your own. Everything will start tomorrow (April 2) and run for at least a couple of weeks.
Because I thought it would be interesting to turn the other question around. I was thinking of putting he who must not be named in one of them, but I couldn't think who to compare him to. If there's an obvious omission somewhere, point it out.
Poll [MM17] WEEDING THROUGH THE WWE SLOG
RIPPA posted a topic in 2017 MARCH MADNESS (Archive)MAKE SURE YOU READ THIS BEFORE VOTING!!!! Since the field is going back to 64 - it is getting harder and harder to justify having 45 WWE affiliated wrestlers in the field. Especially when only about 3 of them had a legit year I would actually say was worthy of winning this. Now - I debated just making my own cuts but I am going to do this poll to at least let you have a say. No matter what - tough choices (well maybe for some) need to be made. KEEP READING ALL THIS BEFORE YOU VOTE This poll is only for MAIN ROSTER folks. I have CWC/205Live and NXT folks in their own separate lists I already have 12 "spots" filled for WWE MAIN ROSTER guys. They are: AJ Styles, Charlotte, Bayley, Becky Lynch, Chris Jericho, Kevin Owens, Roman Reigns, Miz, John Cena, Sami Zayn, Wyatt Family (Bray, Orton & Harper) and Cesaro/Sheamus. If they aren't in this list or in the poll - it is because I am not wasting my time with them. It is possible I spaced on someone but I just went through the roster on WWE.com so I think I am good. I mean I am already pushing it at 12 HOW TO ACTUALLY VOTE You may choose to vote for UP TO THREE people (It is the honor system so if it shows I can't trust you fucks - I will just end the poll and make my own picks) TOP TWO get into the tournament (the next two will be on the bubble and may or may not get in depending on the numbers.) Poll will stay open till the end of Tuesday (unless it is obvious who is winning)
THE BEST MUSIC OF 2014 General Thread
Lamp, broken circa 1988 posted a topic in MUSICHey my semester's over. Unlike this year, this thread is for clarifications AND pimping. Having two threads won't be necessary until it's results time. RULES * Ballot size between 10 and 15. Scoring will basically be the inversion of a hypothetical top 15, with a slight bonus given to your #1 rated release. The upper limit was lowered from 25 to 15 is to cutback on the Tie Festival from last year. * Eligible Releases include Albums, Mixtapes, EPs and soundtracks of largely original compositions. -Compilations are OK if the material was unavailable up until this point (rarities, b-sides, demos, covers). -Live albums are OK if the material is either currently unavailable as a studio recording or significantly different than the existing recordings. Realistically I'm not going to have time to check that, so scout's honor on this one, eh? * The initial release date of any piece MUST be within 2014. Format doesn't matter: if it was available digitally in 2013, it's a 2013 album. Exceptions granted to releases sold on tour that only became commercially available later, and 2014-intended albums that leaked in late 2013. * I will accept ballots FIVE ways this year. -Post it in this thread. If you do this, let me know when you are posting your finalized list. -Send me a private message. Let's face it, I haven't made lots of friends on here despite coming here every day, so 99% chance that there won't be any inbox capacity issues. -If you have a RateYourMusic account, send me a friend request (account name BL88) and I will use the list labeled as 2014. When your list is finalized, PM me on this message board and I will add it. Maybe put the link to your list in that PM if you want to be nice! -The same goes for anyone with a Discogs account. Same account name, same procedure as above. I only just made an account on discogs for this, so please do not try to talk to me through that. I imagine I'm not going to remember it exists most of the time. -Send email to DVDVRBestMusic2013 at gmail dot com. I am too lazy to make a new account, and didn't have the foresight to make a general one last time. Anyways, put “BALLOT” and your account name in the subject. I'm going to check it every Friday, and I'll reply with some gibberish to let you know when I receive it. Treasure this gibberish. It is for your eyes only. * Please try not to do a bunch of last minute changes. If you have to take it to the deadline, do it, but if you get it right the first time it'll make this all go faster. Also if you're using one of the list making sites above, PLEASE tell me when you change something. Once I have it entered into the spreadsheet I'm probably not going to look at that site again, and if I do I might not notice any changes. SUPER NEAT SUGGESTIONS * Seriously, RateYourMusic. Once you get a hang on how Early Internet that site is it's really easy to check information on albums and maintain lists. * If it's an album you think has gotten passed over or is relatively obscure, include sample tracks. Music requires hearing, so you need to suppliment your praise for a thing with a chance to hear it. At the same time, if a lot of your (my) releases are obscure like this, don't embed like twenty youtube videos into a post or something obnoxious like that. Just like make it a really obvious hyperlink or something. Or if the whole album's just availible somewhere like bandcamp or a huge youtube video, use that. *** I wouldn't recommend using Spotify for this. I listen to a ton of music and I don't have a spotify account, so don't assume it's a common thing. * To avoid burnout, don't make your queue rigid. Listen to whatever genre feels right that day, and do not force yourself to listen to stuff outside that genre if you don't want to. DEADLINE March 30th, 2015. I can move up the date if pressed to. REMINDER: Full-time college student. No idea how my work load or life load is going to shake out by March 31st, so if I can't get it done it'll be delayed until May 19th. I'll let you know in advance if this comes to pass. OKAY HAVE FUN WITH MUSIC NOW
THE BEST MUSIC OF 2013: THE COUNTDOWN
Lamp, broken circa 1988 posted a topic in MUSIC11 Ballots! 173 albums! 25 ties of albums with one vote! Only four albums recieved more than three votes! Three of them are the top three albums! I am pretty sure you have never seen a top twenty quite like THE DVDVRMB'S BEST MUSIC OF 2013! Like I said in the pimping thread, since there's 25 goddarn ties, the first few posts are going to be dumpsters of ties with an occasional album that managed to break out of tie-land by virtue of having more votes. Here we go! EDIT: And here's the full list.

Death From Above posted a topic in MUSICHad a request to rescue these from the void, so here you go. This is a direct copy/paste of my notes pretty much so nothing fancy to be seen, "hv" stands for high vote if that isn't obvious. There were a couple minor format changes between two of the polls so if some of the extra info seems confusing just ignore it. The rankings are the same as originally posted. 1960's: 1970's: 1980's: 1990's: 2000's: Dirty, but there you go.
