    Default The VHLinks Overused Cliche and Remark Thread!

    So Seen got me thinking...here's a list of things that just drive me bonkers.

    1. Mike being a class act
    2. Anyone doing something "for the fans"
    - especially as it pertains to selling really expensive tickets to shows, charging people a boatload for the chance to interact with them etc.
    3. Music as fast food analogies
    4. Chickenfoot being about "fun"
    5. The eddie as a troll pic
    6. cup jokes (I still like 'em though)
    7. two-bands jokes...(i still like these too!)
    8. Dave being on a gag order and his balls being locked in a safebox at 5150


    That's all I can think off the top of my head. I'm starting to get to the point where I think we should all just adopt some some sort of universal acronymn to be used when we would otherwise bring one of these things up.

    for instance: YBMIACA = yeah, but mike is a class act

    for cup jokes we could do something like = ()
    does that look like a cup?

    Stay out of it, dude.

    I'm cool with most of the cliche's around here. I have to confess, I never read the one about Dave's beanbag in a safe at 5150 though.
    I do have trouble with one cliche though....and it's not even from the Links, but I-I-I, gotta get it off my chest!

    it's new but it's gathering steam in a big way. Hang around the VH Present forum and you'll see endless references to him handing over his balls, taking it up the ass, accepting a gag order and on and on and on. My favourite one though is the one about his balls being in a lockbox at 5150.
    Stay out of it, dude.

    Translation: Broken is tired of people diggin' Chickenfoot and ripping on VH4.

    Maybe when VH4 actually does something worth noting, you can rally behind the excitement then.

    "Eddie is a fucking piece of shit."

    I really get tired of sa...hearing that one.
    Sammy did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.
    Michael did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    A: Eddie Van Halen hands down he threatened all the stage hands that if we wernt all pushed to the side when he got off stage that he would "bash our faces in"

    nah...VH4 isn't going to do anything worth rallying around...at least I doubt it.

    I'm definitely not tired of people digging chickenfoot, i kinda dig 'em myself. Looking forward to getting the record and hoping they come to Houston....and yet again, I'll give my wet dream show at the Verizon Wireless: Chickenfoot, Mr. Big and Extreme!

    But c'mon Squalen...you have to admit, some of these things are just waaaaaay over mentioned!

    Hell, I'll even add another: my consistent enthusiasm of VHIII. Hell, you can set your watch by the posts!
    Stay out of it, dude.

    I'd say cup jokes never quite 'hit' me in the right place. Two band jokes I genuinely find hilarious. Dave being on a gag order's a serious statement, not an issue with that.

    Eddie as a troll forever!

    Chickenfoot being about fun...that's kinda an interesting one since Sammy goes on about growing artistically and loving that this allows him to return to Europe now he has a bigger audience there with these guys. I'd say that Chickenfoot is far less about fun than Sammy & The Waboritas, and until For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge Van Halen were pretty fun with the exception of Fair Warning.

    Mike being a class act is a phrase I think should be made illegal. It annoys me so much, I don't even understand why it annoys me as much as it is. It just makes me think "a few people thought it seemed cool so they're not going to attempt to come up with an adjective of equal value" and it also is such an "answer for everything" type comment that people are no longer thinking of a word appropriate to the scenario, just any comment about Mike's behaviour - be it honourable, brave, cool, fun, smart, whatever - is now a "class act" when far more suitable and descriptive words could be used. Makes it impossible to see what people think of him other than "good guy" really. And I've lately seen it applied to Sammy Hagar and in the "Sheehan on Mike" thread...and I can never tell if people are comparing them to Mike or just using the term.

    musically chickenfoot seems like a much more serious outfit than Sammys solo work of late but time and time again I see remarks about Chickenfoot bringing "fun" music back. That this is music to have "fun" by and if you don't understand having "fun" well...you should go listen to emo.

    I think there are a lot more accurate words to describe Chickenfoot.
    Stay out of it, dude.

    When doing reviews of VH gigs....

    "And Al was just, well ..... Al"

    What the fuck does that mean? Why not "And Al was just, well .......... Liza Minelli"?


    "Dave's schtick is getting a bit old"

    YA think? If I had a dog that spouted the same bullshit for 30 years I would kick it's arse and tell it to get a new script. As for humping inflatable microphones? A puppy gets a two week window before doggy chunk dinner is withheld until the little bastard grows up.

    "perhaps Ed isn't the player he once once"

    Ah yes. The lesser known dictionary defintion of "perhaps" which is " .... As sure as there is gravity and a poltician worth punching in the fucking head"
    A man could lose himself in a country like this.
