The bit where the door opens on Kid Buzzo in detention reminds me of the scene in Empire with Vadar at the end of the table!  :lol:

The star of the show tho is the gong!  :wink:

It's not the greatest video ever but it's pretty amusing seeing kids rock out to The Melvins.

cool video.  but did it bug anyone else that the kids playing wasn't properly synced with the audio?  they're kids, i know, so i'm sure they couldn't get it exactly right, but there was a part where lil' jared was playing bass....and there was no bass in the song.  a minor nitpick.

Great video concept.  It seemed to flow perfectly with the song changes.  I was never a hater when it came to this song but I like it tons more with the video.

This is quality entertainment as usual.  I love this band!

ok, so anyway, the part when HAZE said his banning fingers were heavy on those that just ripped blatant mindless jeers without any founding reasoning were like the drunks being tossed out at the party around hmeah, I share this sentiment, If you don't like it fine, but you can't piss on hospitality!

I wont allow it!

 this is place is still full of ingrates, everyone is a critic though. 

What happened to the whole Banned fiasco here not too long ago, the whole "if you don't like it get the fuck outta here"  like I thought we were all squared right up to the way things are going to be around here from now on... :? go ahead and feel free to be dissapointed but don't just pop out of nowhere and drop your trousers and yell "DEUCES WILD!!!"

if you have NOTHING but four letter words like, Shit, crud,crap, lame, whatever instead of something constuctive, no soup for you.

I think the terms were "within reason"...negativity is just going nowhere here and were all an inch away from going down the tubes here on this forum...I LIKE IT HERE< so don't make me drop in on your place when I got nowhere else to go, I promise the funk will be there miles before you see me coming.

yet like a deviant little ADHD child, thinks mom and dad's not watching..

5 seconds later...were back at square one, how red is your ass gonna be after the spanking of a lifetime?

does the phrase "don't shit where you eat" bring anything back from about 2 weeks ago..

I smoke pounds of Marijuana and my memory is STILL better than what I just read here.

If it's any consolation I don't think Lunica has said anything positive about anything I like ever.

GREAT video, I guess one of the guys from the Warlock Pinchers directed it? Also really liking the song, and all the new songs really. Jared's got a nice mean bass tone on that one.

 I just now, finally lost all respect for a couple of you bigtime. and lost interest in taking a gander myself, I'm a FAN, I get inside the animals! but that doesn't mean I'm less than a man for making a beast of myself. The critic around here is too painfully ignorant and impulsive. 

Wonder if  even I AM  (and I am really "that" cool of a guy most of the time)  pretty pissed at a couple of you, what about the essential source of this wellspring of fan forums....I GOT TO wonder how they feel about your hasty words???

HERE'S A GREAT RIDDLE FOR YA!

Yeah ok...but why did Li'l Jared have more camera time than Li'l Buzz and really are supposed to believe that these kids are actually singing?  They sound off key, stupid lil Jared couldn't sync to the lyrics exactly (he's off by a 16th of a second.  Oh yeah I timed it!) and in the 12th frame 3rd shot when they do a close up of li'l Buzz he commits the mother of all music video sins.  He hit the wrong note on the fret board (gasp!).  I mean are actually supposed to believe this?!?!  That these are the little mighty melvins!?!?  Puhleese!
Why did a 2 year old film this?  Futhermore, why did they even have a Li'l Jared?  Jared should just stay out of the band.
Jared, Jared, Jared!

Hello Mr. drama queen!
I am here because i love the melvins, but that does not mean I have to love every single thing they do. Not liking the video is not an attack on the band, and it's also not a personal attack on you. I can like a video by a crappy band, and I can dislike a video by one of my favorite bands. If this is a "positive comments only" thread, it should be specified in the subject. I would say you really don't have to teach me how this forum works, but if the rules have changed and it is no longer allowed to have an opinion that differs with yours here, I suggest you report me to the moderators and have me banned. Then you can pretend it never happened.

Post by: Dumpster D on March 14, 2012, 03:54:41 PM
Did you ever stop and think they wanted to make a video you weren't going to like just because they are pissed at their fans for ripping on them?(just a wild theory) I'd be pretty sick and tired of hearing bad stuff from my fans (ESPECIALLY if I was actually TRYING to make something good). That is STILL beside the point however.

 I can relate to that when I've created something I worked hard on, someone always comes up to tell me their negative opinion before I ever asked them.

It gets to the point where I whip out some crayons, m-80's and donkey manure. just light the fuse and run away.

and make something just for you negative critics to finally feel like you have a "purpose". 

 the melvins would be happy deliberately making something intolerable just to piss you off if you're not going to like it anyway.


I have not watched this, and I'll be damned if that's going to change if this place wont.

if the video is good or bad, it's still subjectional and irrelavant to THE REAL ISSUE!

pretty soon you won't HAVE a fan forum to even complain in if you keep it up.

again why do work yourself, if someone has already done it for you?

I just see how hard these boys are working and it's dissapointing not too many people have such a great creative vision.

Buzz always said "more is more" and I think we would be very sorry to lose this place.

I'm cool as a cucumber.

here's a good example of getting someone else to work FOR you.

Buzz-yo hazelemeyer old buddy, you want to run the melvins BBS for a bit?

Haze-why, what for?

Buzz-well we just want to let you explore your creative side a little

Dude, I know what youtube is, I know a live video can be for free, I'm not stupid. Where do you even get the impression that I think everyone is made of money? Please explain.

The days when the music video had a lot to say seems to be over, it doesn`t seem like bands in general make too much effort in making some new and creative. The new Melvins video is not bad, but my reason to check a track via youtube is just to hear it, doesn`t matter if it`s a still photo of a cover or some visualizing of the story of the track played. I don`t blame Melvins for not putting too much money in on the production, very few bands elsewise seems to do it either nowadays. Except for the pointless, crappy Kanye West, Rihanna etc.

Neither do I. And she has not used foul words either.

exactly! thank you.
that's what i didn't get. i wasn't even saying it was really horrible, and the video doesn't bother me at all, it's just not my cup of tea. then i get this whole shitstorm of drama thrown at me by some guy who gets offended merely because my opinion differs from his, and keeps calling for Haze to ban me for it.
i mean come on, if dumpster was a pregnant, emotionally unstable hormon-fighting woman who just lost her husband because he spent the last days of his life editing the video (it wouldn't have been his last days if he had remembered to eat), i could sort of get why he would be offended. But i take it thats not the real situation here :D

I didn't mind it - thought it was decent for what its intended for.

Even though I can't stand political correctness, I still couldn't escape the undertones of high school massacres. Not sure if it was intentional or not, I wasn't even thinking about the production or the music - just that.  :shock:

Lunica, you are obviously entitled to your opinion.  I'm not personally not offended if you don't like anything the melvins do.  Free or paid for. 
Maybe temperatures would calm if you explained why you didn't like it rather than making a drive by statement about how it was poorly shot.    It might help or make things worse either way at least we'd know your opinion was based on intelligent thought prosess and not a knee-jerk reaction.

i'm not gonna fault the melvins for not putting in a million bucks into the production, i don't think they even care about videos to really try. but the idea of touching on a taboo subject like school violence in the video shows their opinions on political correctness. which is cool with me. at least its not a bad video!

If those people who like the video had more to say than "cool" it would be more interesting to read bit you missed my point.  Those "cool vid" type of comments aren't causing a ruckus.  I still consider myself new here so I don't know who's legit and who's here just to ruffle feathers.  An explanation would help understanding of an opinion.

Besides, for me its more interesting to read why someone didnt like something and have an intelligent reason about a topic.

Hey Lunica, don't get too worked up by the inarticulate ramblings of pot-addled posters.  Useless posts from certain people, along with the snark-fueled vitriol of Pinky, are the two biggest wastes of space on this otherwise wonderful board. The fact that both of them are allowed to stick around under Haze's regime while someone with something truly meaningful to say, like Stallion, is banned is a cause for alarm.

I for one was utterly shocked to learn of the new policy. It does a serious disservice to the board and the Melvins community in general. The biggest problem comes with context. To have someone who has contributed to this board on a daily basis with wit and clarity expunged for one pithy negative comment is a travesty. I get a lot more out of the occasional trite comment from someone whose opinion I have come to acknowledge and respect over the course of the last several years than some Johnny-Come-Lately who waxes like a hysterical halfwit.

I have been a member of this board for nigh eight years and although I post rarely, I visit on an almost daily basis. While we've had our fair share of dust-ups and occasional troll invasions, for the most part this board has been a paragon of virtue compared to most other boards in this series of tubes. Thanks to Brian's benevolent patronage and the expert work of the moderators, we have managed to keep this place mostly civil for quite a long time. To have that cheapened by knee-jerk reactionism is an outright shame.

With that I bid you all a fond adieu. I expect to be taken out back and shot for this, and if I'm mistaken than Haze's banishments are even more ludicrous than I thought.

Oh and for good measure, the video is pretty bad. I could go into a series of salient points about how it plays cute and there is nothing of worth to chew on, but what's the point?

you know something?

I was going to watch this, just like I was going to have a listen to the Bull&the Bees.

 I just now, finally lost all respect for a couple of you bigtime. and lost interest in taking a gander myself, I'm a FAN, I get inside the animals! but that doesn't mean I'm less than a man for making a beast of myself. The critic around here is too painfully ignorant and impulsive. 

Wonder if  even I AM  (and I am really "that" cool of a guy most of the time)  pretty pissed at a couple of you, what about the essential source of this wellspring of fan forums....I GOT TO wonder how they feel about your hasty words???

HERE'S A GREAT RIDDLE FOR YA! 

HOW MANY HAZE XXL's does it take to BAN A MELVINS FAN?

bonvoyage I guess.  :(
so you cant listen to bulls and the bees and watch the video because some people said something that you dont like?

Fine, I'm out of line.

Lunica, I wasn't exactly being specific to just you, taking it as a direct attack on you was NOT my intention so chill, please? plus you call me a Drama queen and whiner?   

Why not just blame this whole thing all on me?

I am completely responsible for this "bad" video ok? I did it. It was ALL me. SERIOUSLY.

I put them up to it. Just ask Jules, he knows what I'm talking about.

I put subliminal thoughts into all of your heads while you sleep.

so from now on if you don't like what the melvins are putting out, just call me at home and yell and hiss and moan, I am here for you.

I'm opening the complaint holtine if you got problems from now on.

just PM me with all your concerns and qualms, I'll give you my number and you can Deliver pizza to my house I didn't order or something ok? or call me at 4 in the morning (that wont exactly work since I rarely sleep)

but it won't make you happy.

Post by: Lunica on March 16, 2012, 06:59:18 AM
So... First of all, the video never bothered me. I always knew the melvins were not about the videos, and that is also not my reason for liking them - I don't see their videos as something really important.. other than maybe introducing them to new fans, which seems to be working. And it will most likely never hit the big telly screens, so of course its a waste to invest too much money in it. I don't get worked up by something that is posted by a complete stranger here.

Dumpster: I did call you a drama queen, and I did call you whiny - a rather reasonable description, I think, if you take a look at your posts. I also find what you are doing now very childish, but I hope it will get you the attention you long for.

Michael: I don't think you'll get banned - I think people are stressing too much about this banning thing, and many are (perhaps) being too careful with what they say in fear - when it probably isn't neccessary. believe me, I think it was complete bullshit that people were banned in the first place, and I'll keep on saying what I believe - I think it's a great loss for this forum if people start censoring themselves - or others.  Thanks for the support though :)

I don't mind explaining why I think it seems like a school project - since that is what seems to have sparked this whole mess. But be warned, it might make you want to cut your wrists if you're a softy :D

Before I start, I want to make it completely clear that this is only MY personal opinion. I like the song, so that has nothing to do with it. I do not hate the video or think it's horrible, I'm just not lovin' it.

First of all, the story.. some kids play in a garage and save their friend from detention, ok... to me that sounds like a story you come up with last minute, just because if you don't have a story, you have nothing to film, so "it will have to do".

The lighting, or lack of lighting makes it look like its been filmed with a regular (not high definition, not razor sharp filming etc) camera - like what you bring when you go on a holiday, or like the local commercials in the movie theatre before the movie starts.

I prefer it when the director SHOWS me where we are or what happened before rather than simply adding a caption like "earlier" - we also often did this on school projects as we didn't have enough time to shoot all the scenes properly.

And the thing that annoys me the most.. is the idea of "why not let kids play them!!!". I didn't like that idea in the first place, and the average lip-syncing and the fact that the kids don't even look like who they are supposed to look like didn't make it better.

Just to make it clear, this is not an attack on anyone, it is just the personal opinion of one individual (me!). It has not made me like the melvins any less, and to be honest, I never cared that much about their videos, I prefer seeing them live or listening to them. And I've understood that a lot of you love this video, and that's great! Hopefully it will generate even more new fans.

I believe I have explained my view rather clearly now, more than I had initially intended to do, so I consider myself done with this thread.

wait, did you JUST say you DON'T get worked up by what a complete stranger posts?

then why is it still something you need to explain so profusely?

PM me and we can work out our differences in private Lunica, that's what I should have done in the first place, and again why you took what I said it so directly, I didn't mean for that.  didn't come off sounding as General as I was trying to make it. not JUST for you.

same for the rest of you who want to call me out for being-over the line.

at this point I already said I was out of line, and I guess that just isn't enough?

sounds like there's no pleasing you. but seriously, I'll keep my issues with what people here are saying PRIVATE from now on. Lesson learned already.

And from now on.
