Sorry dude, all I'm seeing in your posts is "I'm better than you, so don't you even try and write a book". If you love the demo scene you should be encouraging, not trying to put people down who try to contribute to a fairly undocumented subject. Who cares if the book doesn't cover every Paralex demo, or leaves that elusive 6th version of Prowler out? As we've all already agreed on, having every demo in it is a futile project, so why not be happy about the fact that a book containing 13.000 of them is about to be published?rumblefist wrote:It's for knowing you a little bit that i can tell you're still too far of having a good demo collection.
On the other way - if you start a zine book - will be easier for you - for what i saw.
We're discussing a book with a potential 13.000 entries, and the first words that spring to my mind aren't "really weak" and "average". Give me a break. This just reeks of elitism and snobbery. If you're so much better at demo collecting, why not prove it? Produce something for the metal community yourself instead of bad mouthing people who are working hard to do their part. This is the same problem I have with people criticizing Metal Archives. Sure, it has flaws. Sure, there is stuff missing, incorrect information, bad moderators etc. But it's still a pretty darn impressive database of bands which has helped many a metal fan a lot.rumblefist wrote:I do care about the 9 demos of Paralex.
Or the 6 Prowler's.
And more other things - because i know his information and demo base is really weak.
I know many many people who thinks the same.
That's why - i won't buy the book.
Because i am free and i try not to support average metal.
But someone must do the book. And someone will buy it
And someone - later - will give me reason.
Quoting a few things from the fb page:Khnud wrote:Is it because Plantweed prefers to do most of the work himself?
Anyone have two demos by the British band F.K.M.? They are Demo 1987 and Broken Dreams (1989).
We’re in need of the 1985 rehearsal (sans vocals) from the L.A. metal/thrash outfit F.C.D.N. Tormentor.
ZINE WANTED: Douche Rag #1 (edited by Chris Chen, Denver, CO). Will pay for originals, but scans or photocopies are OK.
Trying to find the 1987 demo, Blow It Out Your Hole!, by the New Jersey crossover thrash band F.C.A. (Farting Catastrophe of the Anus), with bassist Tim Scott of Revenant.
We could use Makin' Noise, the 1980 demo from the Northern Irish NWOBHM group Ezy Meat.
and so on for quite a few years already.Looking for 1989’s Garden Dwarf Woman Driver, the demo by New Orleans sludge combo Eyehategod.
No way, dude. This is a forum meant for discussion. If you have a problem with someone having a different opinion than you and arguing against you, this might not be the place for you. If you claim that another person who's doing a project knows nothing and the project is a complete waste of time or whatever, the burden of proof is upon you. You have to prove why this person knows nothing and why the project is a complete waste. Otherwise it's just a slanderous comment. Oh, and trying to act intimidating and forcing other forums members into silence will get you nowhere. You're in no position telling me to stop expressing my opinion. So just cool it, ok?rumblefist wrote:Surely i won't prove you anything.
Who are you ?
Do i owe you any cent ?
Allow me to have my own opinion and stop .
Thank you for clarifying your position on this matter, and for responding in a calm and sober manner. I "get it", but this also means that it's basically impossible for anyone to actually get anything in writing without having to give credit to "the internet". And we all know it doesn't really work that way. Was it wrong by Janne Stark or Malc Macmillan to release their encyclopedias?ION BRITTON wrote:The impression this project personally gives me is that someone is trying to get credit for himself based on the work thousands of people have collectively done through the years. Don't take this last sentence word for word, I hope you know what I'm trying to say.
Asking for info in public through a media that counts some millions of users is not much of a "gathering" I'm afraid.bobo wrote:Gathering info from different sources is not uncommon.
If this is true, it seems a bit contradictory to ask for info every second day on fb.doomedplanet wrote:I'm skeptical it will ever come out. I tried to help the guy years ago and he didn't really really want any help. Or another way to put it he seemed against sharing information, and the little 'give and take' that a project like this requires.
