First topic message reminder :

Round 2 of the Culture Cup 2.0 finally comes to an end, and what a controversial round it turned out to be.  There were accusations of vote rigging (by me, about Adam.  I still think he has cheated), arguments, swearing and threats of physical violence.  But, that’s what great art does.  It inspires opinions, it creates extremes of emotion, it forces people to look into their souls.  Round 2 was great art.  Great art happening in front of our eyes, people.  There were one or two questions about the validity of some picks and, as usual, some invective spewed my way.  But I can handle it.  That’s what great leaders do, provide inspiration in the face of adversity.  It’s water of a ducks back to me.  Or jizz off Sean’s chin if you need a better metaphor.

So who were the movers and shakers in round 2?  Well, the biggest winners were Hero and Harrier who both scored 10 points with Madge and Dusty.  I voted for Madge so I can’t say I’m too disappointed with those choices.  Son Of A Preacher Man is a great song as well so no complaints from me.  Hero and Hammer are at the top of the table with Paul, Treb “Tik Tok” Trebs and 'fathead' Adam breathing down their necks.  That f*cking lunatic Ziggler somehow managed to lobby enough people to vote for his choon and finds himself in second place for round 2 with 8 points.  Adam with Hit Me Baby One More Time somehow claims the last podium position in round 2 with a truly awful song. I’d like to hit all the people that voted for it one more time with a massive claw hammer.  Although that would just involve hitting Adam over his stupid, fat head numerous times as he clearly cheated and rigged the votes.  Jeff and superfly continue their titanic “who is the least sh*t out of two sh*t posters” battle with Jeff’s solitary vote this round enabling him to snuggle up to his great rival on 2 points each in the table.

A few posters continue to languish with no points, with Sean “I lie more than Jay from the Inbetweeners” Michaels, Galted “Massively Gay Way” Mears and Julius “I’m old so I moan.  Deal with it” Marx all yet to break their 2.0 virginity.  Stella has become a bit of an enigma.  He joined late, and now won’t answer my PM’s.  This has forced me to choose for him in round 3.  Hopefully my choice will lift him from the foot of the table.

So the updated table looks like this:

1) Hero 16 pts
2) Harrier 14 pts
3) Paul 12 pts
4) Trebs 10 pts
5) Adam 10 pts
6) Ziggler 9 pts
7) SerialDAVE 7 pts
8) C&R 6 pts
9) Azzy 6 pts
10) weeman 5 pts
11) Nakatomi 4 pts
12) Beadle 4 pts
13) Union Cane 3 pts
14) Shah-abu bakr 3 pts
15) The Boss 3 pts
16) superfly 2 pts
17) Jeff 2 pts
18) Grumpy G*lfer 2 pts
19) Dagless 1 pt
20) Michaels 0 pts
21) Jules 0 pts
22) Ray Mears 0 pts
23) Stella 0 pts

Round 3 takes us to books and question was this:  WHAT IS THE BEST PIECE OF FICTION WRITTEN BY A EUROPEAN?

Please remember, THIS IS OPEN FOR ANYONE ON 606v2 TO VOTE

Thanks.

Hi-Tec also do an extensive range of rugged hiking boots and shoes.
Perhaps I have not sufficiently emphasised this.

I would go so far as to suggest this knowledge of children's footwear stems from an inappropriate interest in lonely kids. I think yew know what I'm talking about.

I think it more stems from once being a child who had feet.
Or now being a parent of children who also have feet.

Bald man in a SLAYER T Shirt, Jeff.  Don't forget the bald bit.
They're not style tips, they're lifestyle tips....be not a slave to fashion and the opinion of some overpaid bag of horse dung who decides that checks/spots/stripes are "in" this month. Walk your own path (preferably not in Hi-Tec or Gore-Tex..as I mentioned before, you'll just look like GALTED and GALTED is a c*nt...and not even a young c*nt...just a c*nt...who makes gloves out of toilet paper to touch his own poo)

You're all bags of meat anyway irrespective of how gaudily you dress yourselves...just meat for the blade.

While we are talking style, I had a haircut and beard trim last Saturday. As well as solving my batting woes (Damien Martyn-like 43 out of a 117 total), it made the very fit bird at work say I look 10 years younger. Dress down day today, sporting a turquoise themed set of new balance, blue jeans and a burgundy polo from Reiss.

No, Sean. Myself, Galted (to a degree), SerialDAVE, Jeff, Hero, Edam and Dolphin are talking 'style'.

You wear a Tech By Tumi and/or a 1990's Parka. At no point were you invited to talk 'style'.

Klopp looks like the sort of man who would be arrested for loitering outside a nursery even if the nearest one was 30 miles away...he's THAT dodgy. For you to compare yourself to him is, to be honest, unsurprising.

I went for Lord of the Flies. I might have gone for Ulysses if I'd ever read it.

I'd have voted for Terry Pratchett if Small Gods, Guards! Guards or Nation had been an option, but Colour of Magic, while very funny, is really just an extended string of fantasy parodies without even a proper plot.

Pratchett...nice bloke, sad loss but only found him sporadically funny if I'm honest. Downloaded his books with a view to reading them Couldn't get past Colour of Magic....just don't get what the fuss is about.

Maybe I'm bitter that no fecker is voting for my choice....that's probably it!

Hard to tell if people are nominating the "classics" because they read/enjoyed them or are simply appealing to the populist vote. Same goes for people who listen to Vivaldi's "Four Seasons" or Bach's "Air on a G String" or Beethoven's Fifth.

Never trust any man who picks the fifth over the glorious ninth for Beethoven Dave. Agree about those classical types Dave, now jazz listeners on the other hand, those boys are cultured up to the eyeballs.

michaels'd that you spaz.
Same with those silly ****s who think
MALEVOLENT CREATION's "Retribution" is better than "The Ten Commandments"
SEPULTURA's "Roots" is better than "Beneath the Remains"
METALLICA's "Black Album" is better than "Master of Puppets"
and on it goes......


Or anyone who thinks Sepultura's "Beneath the Remains" is better than "Chaos A.D.".
F*ck "Chaos A.D." It was the death knell for Sepultura...even "Arise" was better than that turdburger. They tried leaping onto the nu-metal bandwagon and it was downhill from then on in as far as I'm concerned.[/quote]

You are so wrong Dave, Kaiowas is the single best song they ever did which considering it was an instrumental demonstrates what I think of Cavalera's singing, good band don't get me wrong but very over rated. Beneath the Remains is to Sepultura what Catch Thirty Three is to Meshuggah, effectively one song split up into individual sections, all too samey for me to consider it a thrash classic.

Same, I have an odd loyalty to Golding for no other reason than he taught at my old school some 50 years before I was there.

No, no, a thousand times NO.

Despite straddling the Thrash/Death genres, Beneath the Remains stands comfortably alongside the likes of Altars of Madness, Slowly We Rot, Consuming Impulse and Left Hand Path. Raw, visceral and punishing. Full of youthful spite and venom and, arguably, never bettered.

Also, you Michaelsed up the quote function which makes my points infinitely more valid

Despite straddling the Thrash/Death genres, Beneath the Remains stands comfortably alongside the likes of Altars of Madness, Slowly We Rot, Consuming Impulse and Left Hand Path. Raw, visceral and punishing. Full of youthful spite and venom and, arguably, never bettered.

Also, you Michaelsed up the quote function which makes my points infinitely more valid

None of them are exactly 1987 by WHITESNAKE.
Can't argue with that

I meant sugarcane.  I think they only mention coffee beans in one of their songs.

Albums by bands who give Death Metal a bad name, give me Act III by the brilliant Death Angel or Focus by Cynic any day of the week over any of that uncontrolled aggression, a great album needs some up and down rather than a single relentless tempo. Any death metal album that pre-dates Human is a bit hit and miss, it was a scene that needed direction, Schuldiner and Masvidal gave it that with the finest bit of guitar work you'll find on the other side of the Atlantic.

Right, here is the question for round 4 of the Culture Cup 2.0

We are back to films for the second and final time, and the question is this this:

WHAT IS THE GREATEST FILM TO HAVE INCLUDED THE THE ACADEMY AWARD WINNERS FOR EITHER BEST ACTOR OR ACTRESS ?

Answers either on a postcard or via PM to me please.  Can you send a few choices as there is bound to be cross overs.  I'm shaking things up a little by not posting the list of who gets first picks till everyone has selected their choices.

Thanks.

Oh how I cherish Julius my love.

A discussion on the relative merits of various death METAL bands will tend to do that to a thread.

I skipped reading this thread some time ago and have just finished reading War and Peace 2. Gripping from start to finish but I do worry I finished it and we're still on the same ruddy round.

Think you have got me confused with Tina, was my interest in insects to be billed as indifferent you'd be grossly overselling it.

Correction there Rowley, I was discussing the merits of Metal bands, Dave however was discussing bands guilty of crimes against all musicality.

It all blurs into one to be fair...anyway there's a grindcore band called INSECT WARFARE that someone could use as the soundtrack to one of their arthro-paedo videos
