In other news from two day old Reddit posts. I've never seen an erection the likes of which Fark has for Gawker media. Except of course for the erection that Gawker has for ripping off Reddit posts.

Doesn't it seem you could just stick with reddit instead of spreading to corners of the web that aren't reddit only to complain that those places aren't reddit?

Agreed.

Just another anything-is-more-interesting-the-closer-it-is-to-a-New-York-media person story. You know every Catholic or Baptist college station has the same kind of list, but somebody at The Hall knows somebody at Gawker.

It's all fairly ridiculous Roman Catholic university stuff, but you'll be quick to forgive once you realize that mentioning Nickleback and/or Justin Bieber will result in a DJ's immediate termination.

As it should be.

Give us a break. Some of us are all grown up now and don't read Reddit or Gawker and appreciate the kids posting this stuff.

Oh, I just knew it was going to be WSOU. This is my favorite local station and they play great stuff.  Weirdest station for a Catholic school ever, but it generally rocks.  Just looked at what was on recently and it seems to be an hour of unusually clean vocals.  You can keep Morbid Angel, they suck.

Testament "Into the Pit"
Motorhead "The Game"
H2O "ROLE MODEL"
Dream Theater "PANIC ATTACK"
P.Jeans "Romanticize Me"
Nightwish "Nemo"
Chimara "Born In Blood"
Megadeth "Rattlehead"
Black Label Society "Death March"
Funeral for a Friend "Best Frieds And Hospital Beds"

There is this magical thing called "life" that some if us have, you may know it better referred to as "IRL" and those of us who have it, or at least a little bit of it, don't actually spend every waking hour trolling every website available on the whole of the inner tubes. So, if something also happens to be on one of the other sites and if it happened this morning, yesterday, a week or a month ago-- WE DON'T GIVE A FARK. Seriously, STFU and GBTReddit.

I suspect no one at Gawker has actually listened to WSOU.  Despite Seton Hall's religious connections, it's the heaviest metal-format radio station I've ever tuned in.

Transvaginal Ultrasound.

Of course we're a trance act so they wouldn't play us anyway.

Yeah, but Reddit comment threads are unreadable.


Not to mention that the sites layout makes your eyes bleed.

doczoidberg: Anal C*nt is my favorite.

Look them up.

Hilarious!


IIRC they had some rather amusing song titles as well.  Unfortunately their creativity didn't extend to their actual music, as most songs I heard were intelligible screaming along with a shiatty drummer and overly distorted power chords.  The only exception being "I just saw the gayest guy on earth", which was just vocals and what sounded like a didgeridoo.  But I guess with a name like Anal coont you can't really expect them to take themselves seriously.

Also, if you have an official list of bands whose name you can't even speak on air, let alone play, how do you justify calling yourself 'pirate radio'?  That's about as far away from 'pirate radio' as you can get.

Some people think killing god and cannibalism are offensive, and in not for polite, god-fearing company.

Interesting to Pucifer is on there. And Dark Angel. Reading it seems like I should have written down all the "good names for a band" comments I've read on Fark over the years to post in this very thread.
