i really don't get what the fuss is about, i don't even listen to music anymore (waste of time to me.) But i also find that it give the mods whom post personality.

WAIT!!! i get it! This is another one of those "Quit posting your personal life!" things isn't it. Seriously, who are you people? You're frickin' lame.

P.S. sorry for the personal attack, but if you're going to post attacks of personalities then........

What's next? "Currently masterbating to..."? Sorry, this not a K.I.L.E.R. thread.

I found the "listening to" to be the highlight of me dreary day. :/

Yes its true without it I couldn't do any work at all! :\

Didn't mean to sound like a bastard and bruise anyone's ego and or make a personal attack. Half the original post was "Over the top, outrageous comedy"..

Why do people always miss it?

Maybe I am the only one that doesn't :P

I got it Nick thought it was a very comical read, bought a smile to me face at 4 in the morning !!

Sorry guys, but I agree with the topic, this 'listening to' thing is nonsense and totally unneccessary on a news page, I'll be happy if and when it stops.

Yeah, same here. It's not even like what you're doing is original either. Matt at 3DGPU has been doing that as long as I've been visiting there. I don't like it when he does it, and I certainly am against it here. IMO, it clutters the front page with unnecessary material. And when a site posts as much news as NVN does it gets rather distracting.

It would be great if this would stop, and we can bring the news page back the way it was. Clean and to the point. All news, no BS.

I would say that we need Less Talk, More Rock, but that seems counterproductive at the moment

Muya did it.

Muya initially got no bad feedback.

Mike did it.



...Mike's site.

hmmmm...

distracting? ok, i don't get that... a newspost is much like a forum post. forum posts have sigs... god forbid ONE MORE LINE at the end...

I WANNA know what Mike and MUYA are listening to. Like many people in this world, I coexist with music. It's a neverending interest, and a good conversation piece.

Speaking of which, music talky-talky is severely lacking in open forum... Is too political IMO. Don't get me wrong, I dig the 1stflight/Riptide/etc. wars/discussions as much as the next guy, but... where's the talk about the bands y'all dig? Heck, where's the talk on everyone's favorite in-dash reciever? Where's the talk on everyone's favorite mudding tires? Favorite sunglasses? Favorite comedian? Favorite Pop Culture movie? Favorite *good* movie? ... OTHER THAN POLITICAL TALK!!

... sorry for the /rant/ ... the "listening to" thingie is cool IMO...

...and I'm already on an "all work, no BS" forum. Its called the IPC TechNet forum, it's for manufacturers of electronic assemblies as well as cable assemblies... all work talky-talky... bleh

Seriously, what's wrong with you lately. Who cares if it's original or not, it's not infringing on a patent is it? NO!. It's not there to feed an ego either afaik. There have been several threads here in the forums dedicated to what people are listening to, and they went on for several pages too. I'm just saying that there is interest in the community.

I don't even really care either way. The only thing that's irking me about this is that people can get thier panties bunched so far up thier ass over something so small. It really is insignificant. bahh.

So why don't you start a few topics then? You talk a good game, let's see you walk it.
