No, but we will come here to talk about deodorant, cruelty free shampoo, lunch, etc, as well as to have occasional meltdowns followed by the community analyses of said meltdowns. :lol: :banana:

and bman coming on to state the PerryEtty Christmas show was the best ever.

I got nothing bad to say about Eric and Handsome Mike. I go there if I am feeling especially excited about Jane's Addiction. I go here if I want to complain about them. It is a nice option. Sonny has the trading cred of a shit like Feek. I gave him something rare and he would not return the favor. He was a real Eric ass kisser too, so my opinion about how Eric was as much of a douche as the rest of Jane's, pissed him off at the time. If I posted my own thread it got deleted at Xiola. Even so I think he is a little more reasonable with his critiques and I was not invested enough to pay much attention to all the drama. I do agree with Sonny about the whole point of these forums. I come here mostly to read about Jane's Addiction. If something even mildly amusing occurs in the Jane's world ANR / Xiola would have it posted. I don't care about the other topics, but it's fun to look around when Jane's news is slow. I enjoy Sonny's perspective more than some of the posters around here. I think he is less likely to have a pissing match than most. I wouldn't bother if there was no Jane's news here. Jane's Addiction will always have fans because those first 3 records are classic. Plus the PFP is just as good. Even tho Page / Plant material is week, people still get into Zep, so I am sure another generation will come around. I totally appreciate Creep and Hoka keeping this going, even if it is a pain in the ass sometimes.

shit!

good point. i didn't even think of that.

this probably wouldn't sell as well but add etty to it and it could be the next viral hit.

I'm not sure that he's too fussed in the distinction. After all on the recording of Pete's Dad on the Sadness single, he tells the crowd that the song is their Christmas song...

it's rad, you go to your mates' or if you have to, family's houses, sit in the pool or blow up pool, drink beers, have bbqs and generally have a blast. fuck cold Christmases, that's unnatural, and I might add, unAustralian.....

When I was a kid I always thought it would be weird, spending a winter christmas. Here it's in the middle of summer vacations, which go from December to March, so I couldn't get my head around the fact that one or two weeks after christmas you'd have to go back to school. Seemed the cruelest thing in the world.

Handsome Mike sent me the 5 disc Cabinet of Curiosities from Best Buy. Because, we don't have best buy in Belgium.

I thought that was a very friendly thing to do. So, Mike, thanks again!

It's like you said "Beatlejuice" three times.

feel bad i said it sonny came out spoke from his heart and hoka jumped all over him


When Sonny can grow up and post without reminding everyone how much better Xiola was and how we'll never be as wonderful as his ultimate creation I'll give him a pass.

I couldn't care less about measuring penises. But good lord. The guy disappears for like a year, and comes back still riding that high horse.

He's a sad little man with a superiority complex, masked with smugness.

And I'm not going to bite my tongue just because he ran a Jane's board and said "y'all" a bunch to Eric Avery.


i was only responding to someone that said something about my initial prediction about this board, when i said it will never be xiola.org. i never said one was better or not.

xiola.org was mainly about jane's addiction for me. this board is not. for that reason i don't really want to participate in the various discussions. some of this stuff went on at xiola.org, but it was never the reason i ran the site or visited.

so don't misunderstand what i was saying by inserting "wonderful" or other "superiority" words to slant what i actually said.

what is great here and what was great about xiola.org is completely subjective. i'm sure mike and erik think ja.org has the superior board. it serves their interest.

the era with which i ran xiola.org was one of hope for a band we loved. we had some controversial contact with the band.

hoka seems quickly offended. that was not my intention. as you can see when i post, things get ugly with very old feelings. i've moved on from jane's addiction and xiola.org. i visit this site from time to time, for nostalgia only. most of the folks i interacted with are on facebook or twitter or instagram.

in the spirit of discussion, i was extremely disappointed in eric avery's decision to quite NIN. it seemed like a cop-out or a cover for the real reason. sorta like when politicians quit to spend more time with their family. for someone who was so honest about jane's addiction, it seemed like a flimsy reason to quit a challenging role.

anyway, i'm sure etty has complained about something or dave did blah or perry's teeth are straight or perkins is trying to make jane's into aerosmith. old arguments abound. :tiphat:

Sonny,

I do believe people were talking about your "prediction" that this place would crash and burn quickly - one I remember you making - not that this place wouldn't be xiola. But oh well. water under the bridge. :wiggle:

I agree to a point. Just going strictly on what was said by Eric and Reznor, I think Trent reached out to him when Reznor first decided to put together a touring band and Eric didn't think it through and agreed before knowing or understanding the full scope both musically and logistically what the tour would encompass. I'm sure there's more to it than that, but that basic explanation fits Erics typical lifetime MO - meaning he bails at his convenience, he doesn't stick around a gig for months or years past his time he feels he's done with it. Looking at how the current band presents itself live, I don't think Eric would have been a good fit unlike if he had been a part of NIN in any of the last decade's lineups.
