I'm way too easy. 

 

The infinity of the internet never ceases to gobsmack me - a search for 'pistachio mondegreen' delivered me instant confirmation of your guess, @WalkingCivilWar. And guess further what! The site was called 'amIright'! (#WCWcatchphrases)

A little off-topic I know, but since when has that ever stopped me, amirite?! 

One day I got to thinking about how if someone dies suddenly their online contacts may never know. To this end I had a convo with my middle son. I said, “if I was to die suddenly, don’t worry about FB, nor Insta, nor any of the band forums I’ve ever been on, there’s just one thing I want you to do online. I want you to tell my friends on Demonland that I’m dead. You don’t have to create an account, just log in under my account and let them know.”

 

AF recently joked about someone having a username or comment that sounded like one of his bad passwords. A bit of effort and I could probably crack half the people on here, this thread potentially one of the biggest contributors.

Why did Coldplay win the war when Augie March and Mercury Rev were doing the same thing at the same time but better?

Lol: Mercury Rev 'Holes' with balloons floating down the street. I'll never understand why TV companies advertise their wares by showing how great it looks on their old stuff. Why not keep their old stuff? Balloons. Paolo Nutini. Done.

Right?! It’s a crying shame. 😡

But to answer your question… because people are spoon-fed their music. It’s either golden oldies (classic rock) or the [censored] they dish up on nova or whatever banal FM station that happens to be on. Things weren’t so bad before Triple J went the way of every other rubbish radio station. 
Mercury Rev and Augie March so deserve the plaudits. 
Hashtag you’ve just hit a nerve Skortie

I always assumed it was an unhealthy dose of cognitive dissonance.

You assumed right, FD. It’s many, many things and not one of em’s good. 😜

I think you've identified the right song, but the mistaken lyric is more likely to be "... you make a grown man cry".

How does “pistachio” sound like “you make a grown man cry”??? 
 

@skortcan you please adjudicate?

WCW wins. But she knows I don't listen to lyrics and have hearing problems, so it's a slight draw.

Best subtle name change was Big_red_fire_engine (Broady) to @Lil_red_fire_engine(Bowser) late last year in the run towards the flag. The symbolism of letting go of the sad past and embracing the exciting new future couldn’t have hit the mark better for me. I believe he’d been BRFE since the Aimoo days too, so pre-2005.

A slight draw my a***.
You couldn’t just let me win this one?! And against @Demonstone??? Do you know how much I (or anyone for that matter) dream about beating him? In anything?????? 
Beware Skort: I have a killer memory.

"Pistachio ice cream" sounds very much like "you make a grown man cry" to my ears.

WCW wins by a mile. Demon's tone can't even get his apostrophes correct.

He said, “so, to be clear… if you die you want me to log into your fan forum, as you, to tell them you’re dead. Okaaay” 😳

So I said “ok then, create your own account for the purpose. You could call yourself SOWCW as in Son Of WCW.” He said, “nah, I’d be Walking Civil Unrest, and he (points to his younger brother) can be Walking Minor Spat.”  😂

Yep, we put the FUN in dysFUNctional!

I’ve thought about that a lot over the years too. I’ve been on Demonland for a really long time, but the only members I’ve ever personally spoken to are Andy and WJ, @Grapeviney@Jaded No More, @old55 and @Slartibartfast, and all only fairly anecdotally, and a really long time ago in the case of the latter three. Nevertheless many of the usernames here feel familiar to me and I feel like I know the personality attached, even if it’s a mostly imagined one based on what they write. It’s a community here. We all know each other, even if it’s a very curated version of ourselves. Every now and again I’ll see an old thread where a name I haven’t seen in ages comes up, and I see they haven’t visited in years and I wonder what happened?

Occasionally I also morbidly wonder if anyone on Demonland would know or care if I did die. Given I have no personal connection to anyone on here the news may never filter through. How depressing!

Oh I quite liked your user name having Bnag for the middle Bang!  It's a great user name regardless though

I believe they are different people. This BBB was previously “Sylvia Saint” and then “No Plan B”.

Question: when I click on people’s profile, there’s a little circular arrow that shows their name history. Does everyone see that, or do I only see that as admin? I used to have a non-admin account to check this stuff, but haven’t used it in too many years now.

Jake Lever on bike and walking up n down stairs, yelling out as he does. Melky copped a niggle so ran laps but

    TOUGH KENT'S TRAINING REPORT I journeyed out to Casey today and was fortunate enough to watch two quarters of match simulation. Here is a brief rundown of random occurrences/thoughts. First of all, there was no Jake Lever (ankle) or Joel Smith involved. AMW is still in rehab and was running strongly. It was Blue (Probables) v Red (Possibles) JvR was in blue. Ben Brown, T-Mac, Hibbo and Tom Sparrow were in red. Gus Brayshaw started at half back for blue and stayed there all game.

Williams yelling out to players to get their hands off hips during drills. Gus looks fine to me. Absolutely., first two mins of match sim and his kicking is exquisite on both sides. He’s moving incredibly well.  Some observations from a match sim drill that lasted about 15-20 mins. The purpose se
