Mugato: I think it's when people got over their prejudices and realized that the "douchebag" label isn't just for white men.
MiamiChef: This piece of shiat did the same thing at Bonnaroo a couple of years ago. He doesn't care about anything but himself.
The Baron: 45 minutes late? To Axl Rose, that is still 3 hours early.
Rapmaster2000: MiamiChef: This piece of shiat did the same thing at Bonnaroo a couple of years ago. He doesn't care about anything but himself.Wow. The only thing worse than being in a concentration camp with a bunch of hippies and DMB fans is to add a concert by Kanye West to the mix.
Sybarite: Forty-five minutes? Compared to some of his past festival appearances, that's practically on time.
Kuroshin: Kanye has fans?I always figured he was just the lame rapper du jour the cartel invested a bunch of money into because he was still "safe" while also using lyrics that were a half-step outside the standard PG line of your current average pop song. "Edgy" without being truly offensive. Manufactured pap.I mean, I understand that there will always be mindless drones who latch on to whatever flash is being thrust in their faces, but they've got loyalty to rival a goldfish so one can't really call them "fans."
Shakes999: Sybarite: Forty-five minutes? Compared to some of his past festival appearances, that's practically on time.Yeah, he sucks and I can't stand him but 45 mins late? Thats hardly a story or a Indictment. Most of the professional bands I see go on at least a 1/2 hour late. If they didn't it wouldn't be a concert.
fusillade762: Also: throwing ice at someone and screaming homophobic slurs because they're drinking the wrong brand of vodak probably doesn't help either. (new window)

Gunny Highway: He will put out another album with all the hottest acts, make a skillion bucks, and it will be labeled his "come back."I call it the "Usher Plan".
MontanaDave: I prefer to think his demise can be traced to his music being a waste of 1s an 0s on various electronic media.
ghost_who_walks: The promoters denied it was because of soft sales, blaming instead on issues with the local councils and the locations, meaning they could not get a site large enough to have the dual main stage areas.
ghost_who_walks: Kanye is going to get the blame for the demise of the Big Day Out. The touring festival has had no end of trouble this year.
Evilsmurf: ghost_who_walks: Kanye is going to get the blame for the demise of the Big Day Out. The touring festival has had no end of trouble this year.There's a few reasons the BDO is dying:- Weak line-up. This is a festival which is known for mostly alternative type music. I mean, the headliners at the first one was Nirvana and The Violent Femmes. Kanye and Kasabian certainly do not fit in that category.- Soundwave. This is the big one. It's stealing acts that are right in the BDO's wheelhouse from right under their noses. I know plenty of people who live in regional Australia who can only afford to go to one of the two. 2009, it seemed to be a 50/50 split. Last year it was around 70-30 tilted towards soundwave. This year was the first time where everyone chose soundwave (except one guy who picked the BDO on the grounds of Soundgarden and Cavalera Conspiracy).- General decline in the Australian music scene. Soundwave, to a degree, seems to be dealing with it by picking little-known Australian bands and beefing up on the internationals. The BDO just seems to pick the same old Australian bands (I see The Living End, Grinspoon, Frenzal Rhomb and Regurigitator on the BDO's line-up... that would have been a great set of Australian bands in 1999).
