    Hi guys, i'm in the process (alongside many other folk) of setting up a new website based solely around the Music in Northern Ireland. It'll feature interviews (video in nature) / reviews (live and demos) / Podcasts / video sessions / and a huge heap of other things that we're all clashing heads on at the minute.

    However, we have launched our Messageboard tonight, which is a cross between a Messageboard and a Social Network, just how we think it should be there days.

    Have a looksee : www.chordblossom.com/messageboard

    Thanks :)

    This is a class idea, just what this place needs. I,ve emailed the link to all my buds, if we all do the same we can make it work.

    While I'm here if anyone knows a drummer looking for a band, we do covers 70's rock right up todate rock etc. We are doing a charity gig in Sept and a couple more gigs in the pipeline. Need someone who will stick with it.

    What a wonderful oppurtunity.
  19. avatar Daveitferris
    Oh I might as well give up since clive who still ponders what interface to buy, is a sarcastic little firefly.
  20. avatar Clive
    I was making a joke because 'opportunities' is spelt incorrectly on the forum page. Funny stuff, eh?
  21. avatar Daveitferris
    I corrected it now clive. Fingers crossed it'll not keep you up tonight ;).
    Thanks for pointing it out.

    gosh, daveit ferris in "jumping to the wrong conclusion and making a dick of himself in the process" shocker!

    Just so you're clear, that was me being a dick and making fun of you.
  23. avatar Daveitferris
    That's okay iain.
    If I was responsible for your '[i:ad41753bce]experimental[/i:ad41753bce]' music, I'd have pent up vitriol, too.
  24. avatar iain
    again with the "i don't like your music" jab. I ignored it the last time you made it, but twice...? Here's the thing. I don't care if you don't like it, it doesn't matter in the slightest to me. What matters is that I do like it. I don't like your 50 albums of whiney emo shite, but I never bothered to tell you because I figured you weren't seeking my approval.

    So now we've established that we have different tastes in music, can you at least try to come up with some good retorts?
  25. avatar Daveitferris
    Iain, here's the thing ; You belittle almost every post i/most make on here, for no valid reason. But rather than get personal with my retorts, which is [i:a88874749a]your[/i:a88874749a] m.o, I decided to keep my reply at a music-only level. A bit Light-hearted, you see. Look at the [i:a88874749a]'whiney emo shite'[/i:a88874749a] comment versus my quip at your music above, and it's very clear that you [b:a88874749a]do[/b:a88874749a] care if I like it. Pick the toys back up fella.

    I'm not on here to reply to your endless drivel iain, but I will happily continue to do so.
