Idiot #3. I said I'd have 5 before the year was over...

I thought I'd share this funny exchange with you all. It was posted here:

It starts out innocently enough with a guy giving a simple but perfectly reasonable opinion.

its good but id say megolomania,sabbath bloody sabbath,thrill of it all,and under the sun have to be some of their all time best
Fair enough right? Then of course an asshole shows up. There's many different kinds of assholes that post stupid shit in the comments of my videos. Usually I complain about the types that are about 14 years old and don't know jackshit about anything, but this is the polar opposite of that. The guy I'm talking about is the 40 some year old Ozzy-sabbath only fan that thinks he knows everything, and that anyone younger than him knows absolutely nothing. Of course he makes no distinctions...if you're younger, you're automatically an idiot. See where I'm going with this...I'm sure all of you have had to deal with someone like this at some point in your lives. Anyway, our douchebag idiot friend shows up and responds to zzellner9.

nah......sabbath's best ? best ever ? let me think kid...i'll shoot from the hipi'll list sabbath's best songs ever (not in order) here we gowheels of confusion/the straightenerhand of doomwarning/behind the wall of sleep/n.i.bkilling yourself to livefairies wear bootsafter foreverthe writunder the sun----megolomania ? lol not even close, bloody sabbath a classic, but sabatoge was weak and the writ is all thats worthy !
This is what irriatates me. It's not the fact he has a differing opinion. It's his haughty know-it-all attitude. Calling people "kid", and trying to act like he's some epic all-knowing Sabbath badass by saying he's going to "shoot from the hip" and name a whopping 10 songs that are automatically the greatest, and fuck what anyone else says. He makes it sound like fucking Iommi himself decreed that those songs are best and he's right and everyone else is just a stupid punk kid. That's what I hate. It's that attitude. Important's not always the opinion you have about something, it's how you deliver it. I can deliver my opinions in a very civil manner, or I can be the biggest dick in the world. Word choice and tone is really the only difference. So here's how I responded to the douche. I think it was fair.

You make it sound like there is some definitive list of Sabbath's best songs that is 100% fact. Ha. I think Megalomania is one of their best songs, and I know a few other people who think like I do. I also don't think Fairies Wear Boots belongs in any Sabbath top ten. I don't think Warning belongs in a top ten either. It's not even an original...I wouldn't normally give a shit about this, but you calling people "kid" and talking like you're some expert makes you look like a douche.

I got a little harsh at the end, but I'm opinionated. You don't call anyone kid unless they mouth off or say something stupid. That's the only time I've ever used it.

Of course the douchebag responds. This time I'm going to receive his wrath.

warning isnt an original ?drop your nut sack kidthen talk to mewarning is argueably the best fuckin song off the "original" BLACK SABBATH/BLACK SABBATHdont put your lack of knowledge against my sabbath wisdom....douchebet you don't even know what half the songs are abouthow could you ? you dont know wether your ass is punched or bored so shut your face kiddo
Wow. Now he's not only acting like an idiot. He's proving that he is one. "Warning" is a cover. Most Sabbath fans know this. I'm not even sure what he's going for in the last line, but it's sort of hilarious. I also like how he made a list and said Warning was one of their greatest songs...but then throws in the word "argueably". Dipshit, if something is arguable, then that means it can be debated. It's not automatic fact. One minute he is spouting off something like it's concrete fact and the next it's arguable. What a fucking tool. I guess it's on now...

Oh, and I should mention...this guy subscribed to my channel 5 hrs before his comment. Obviously he liked my I'm not really sure why he's trying to pick a fight with me. I also don't understand why he thinks I'm an idiot, when I've posted 150+ Sabbath audios and seem to know at least a little bit about you'd have to think I might know just a little bit about Sabbath...just a little...

See why I get pissed off?...there's nothing in anything he's saying or doing that remotely makes any logical sense.
blacksabfan (12 hours ago)

You shouldn't bite the hand that feeds you...ever hear that quote?

Since you're obviously an idiot, let me enlighten you. "Warning" was first written and performed by Aynsley Dunbar's 'Retaliation'. It is a COVER. Go look it up if you want. I already did. Way to make a complete ass of yourself...

Oh, and after my nuts drop, do you want to suck on them for me? That would be fantastic. Thanks. Can't wait for your next message. I'm sure you'll further enlighten us all...

i dont give a shit if it isa cover...its off their first album 20 years before you were born...furthermore its still better than whatever i said it was better than in my previous postsabbath got worse as they went along not betterbut you and the other dopey kids in here feel just the opposite...fuck sabatoge it just cant compare to the earlier stuff periodthats an opinion the majority would hold without doubt ps. fuck you man

i'm fuckin 17 years older than you punkjust because you read a little fine print inside an album cover....(i mean dvd sleave, your to young to have ever enjoyed albums) you think you know somethingyou know 1985 when you were born i was a junior in high school and had already been listening to sabbath for 5 years (7th grade) by the time you picked up a sabbath tape in say the year 2000 i was 32 years old and listening to my wife yell, your a punk kid is all
Well I like how he sidestepped the whole '"Warning" isn't a cover' issue. And as usual, the douchebag 40+ year old Ozzy Sabbath fan retorts to spouting off about his age. As if that somehow makes you superior. Just like owning LPs somehow makes you superior. Last time I checked age was a number and it had nothing to do with how smart a person is.
blacksabfan (10 minutes ago)

I know lots of idiots who are older than me, I also know a few people younger than me who are smarter than I was when I was their age...what the fuck is your point exactly? I don't need to hear your life story. I don't give a fuck what supposed credentials you THINK you have that makes you an 'expert'. You're not. You got owned. I never even said Sabotage as a whole was better than any of their earlier albums. Just the one song. Reading comprehension really isn't your thing though I guess.

Nevermind that you actually subscribed to my channel, presumably because you like what I post, but then turn around and talk shit to me like I don't have a clue about anything. That will definitely bring out my good side...dolt. Yeah, I only posted all this stuff and I don't know ANYTHING about it. Nevermind that this issue started because of a difference of PERSONAL OPINION. Then you mouthed off and blew it out of porportion.That's what douches like yourself do though. Enjoy the ban asshole.
Last night, I also personally sent him a PM congratulating him on being the fastest person to subscribe and then be forcibly unsubscribed by me. He's also the first person to receive a lifetime ban. Usually the people I ban get about a year tops and I delete the list and start over. Hey, I'm a forgiving guy. I hope that idiots reflect on their actions and come back a year later as smarter people...especially since most of them are young anyway. Too bad this idiot isn't young. He's a 41 year old that acts like he's 5, so he will get no sympathy from me. All he gets is to be one of my 5 nominees for idiot of the year. I think he's in the lead right now...although 'expiredgoose' is still a possible winner too... maybe someone else will step up and prove that this isn't the dumbest person I've ever had the misfortune of talking to.

6 more songs for you Lynott diehards.

Hi again everyone.

Here's another link with 6 more rare Lynott tracks from the 1984-1985 period. The only difference between these and the other links is that these tracks are in .mp3 @ 256kbps. For these tracks it's the best available quality that I personally have. If anyone has something better, I'd be more than happy to hear from you...or better yet, post it on a torrent or something and let everyone enjoy them.

The tracks are:
No More (w/Steve Johnson)
Revolution (w/Steve Johnson)
Guiding Light
What's the Matter Baby (w/Junior Giscombe)
Catholic Charm

This brings me to my second point. I've been contacted by a few people about some of the shows I requested in an earlier post, a few of which were posted within the last two years on places like DIME and TTD. I've never been a big trader mostly do to the time and prep work it takes to work out a trade-with addition to having a couple bad experiences along the way. Besides that, I've always never been truly possessive over the music that is in my collection. It's just that--music. I've never understood why people boast huge collections and then never share any of it (or only share when something amazing appears.) I'd just like to make an appeal to people:

Share your stuff.

I know for a fact my collection could of been a lot bigger had I decided to trade shows to a select few, rather than share them over the net with everyone. I decided against this a long time ago, and that I would much rather allow people to hear it for free (truly for free) than to boast an insane collection, only to be despised and accused of being in it for some kind of ego-driven purpose. I've been accused of having one anyway with the whole YouTube page and my sometimes heavy-handed way of dealing with people, but I like to think of myself as quite humble, at least in person and to those I truly care about.

I'm not out of stuff to post. I have plenty of Sabbath material, some Lizzy interviews, a few tracks here and there...but someday I'm sure I will be. I know I've made enemies in the trading world with how I've gone about things. I don't care though, I'm 100% convinced I've done the right thing, although because of it, I know I'm sort of blacklisted from some people's trading pools. Also, I don't intend on posting 74 versions of the "Boys are Back In Town" or "Paranoid" just to stay relevant on YouTube. Once I feel I've exhaused my collection...that's it. I'll have done my part. I guess I'm hoping that a few other people out there (and some have) step up and continue to post, or some new people start posting gems from their collections. It's not about entitlement or trying to get something for free. I truly believe its the right thing to do. I might have rare tracks in my collection, but I certainly don't feel that I 'own' them, or that I'm more entitled to them than anyone else, hence the reason I share everything I get my hands on in the first place. I just happen to be lucky to have them.

I make this request now because it's the anniversary of what would of been Mr. Philip Lynott's 60th birthday on Thursday. I would love to see people who have shows, even if they might be fairly common or not long absent from the torrent trackers on DIME, TTD, TapeCity, etc. to make an appearance come Wed-Fri. I mean what better occasion is there? What is there to wait for? Rapture? Remember, you can't take it with you.

I myself will let the cat out of the bag now and say that I am uploading a show on TTD. I don't want to say which one, but it's a good one. I've had it almost a year now and have been careful not to post anything from it, just for this occasion. However, if things don't change, it might be the last Lizzy/Lynott related thing I offer on any torrent tracker. I know there's people out there with shows and while there's a few that have done so much already...there's other people that can do so much more.

"Now the time has come to use our's the time to let it all go..."

Thunder & Lightning Demos

Here's another link.

This is the complete set of Thunder and Lightning Demos. 12 tracks. Includes two versions of Baby Please Don't Go, and as requested by many people, the two versions of "Don't Let Him/It Slip Away". There's also a demo of "Cold Sweat" with different lyrics, a demo of "Holy War" with different lyrics, and a few others. This is also in .flac, so again, if you want to convert it, please do it for your own personal use.

Thanks and enjoy.

Links to rare Lynott tracks.

Hi all.

Phil Lynott's 60th Birthday is coming up next week, and to get the party started off right, I plan on posting a few links around on some of the places I frequent on the net. That includes my blog.

A few people have requested copies of these so I'll make them available here. They are in FLAC however, so if you want to convert them to .mp3, you'll have to do it yourself. There's a lot of ways to do this, so if you don't know how, consult Google. All I ask is that they don't get reposted in .mp3 format. I'll be posting these links (including some others I haven't made yet) on various websites, but if you know of a friend who doesn't frequent those websites or if you want to post them on your own blogs, that's totally fine with me.

Without further ado...

Freedom Comes, Hard Times, and Partner In Crime

He Fell Like A Soldier and Time (and Again)

I should have more links this weekend and into next week. I also have a brand new torrent planned for upload on TheTradersDen. Stay tuned.
