Ah... your mental disorder has a name now:

http://politix.topix.com/homepage/4989-why-ar...

"Journalists are always lamenting that internet comments are "terrible," "horrible," "the radioactive waste of the web."

Aggressive comments aren't just offensive - apparently they can also skew your reality. A recent study showed that rude web comments polarize readers' perceptions.

Psychologists call what happens in online comment threads "deindividuation," the the human tendency to act badly in mobs. Online this often leads to extremism, as people gravitate towards more extreme positions to gain credibility in their group. It's partly encouraged by anonymity, but that's not the only factor, since plenty of people are happy to be crude and violent in Facebook posts with their real names attached..."

I really know little-to-nothing about that case, so you're complaining to the wrong person.

Sure did.

I thought everybody knew that:

Truck Stop Woman / Will Dockery & Henry Conley:

http://youtu.be/Hv6u6GNe6Kk

Truck Stop Woman

Pulled into Auburn, Alabama,
It was raining of course.
All I seemed to contemplate besides the weather
What a shame to be divorced.
Truck stop woman waving sideways
She'll be in my dreams tonight.
Fifteen minutes of eternal love
Then she's back out of sight.

Rode past Buena Vista,
There was sand in the sky.
Plastic Jesus started trembling
Then I seen her with my eyes.
Truck stop woman waving sideways
She'll light and warm my dreams tonight
Fifteen dollars worth of true love
Man that girl was out of sight.

Something about her was familiar
There was smoke in her eyes.

Back outside of Phenix City,
Pimps and their ilk all around.
Then it turned negative
When I seen her bouncing around.

Truck stop woman waving sideways
She'll be in my dreams tonight.
Fifteen minutes of eternal love
Then she's back out of sight.
Truck stop woman waving sideways
She'll be in my dreams tonight.
Fifteen dollars worth of true love
Man that girl was out of sight.
She's right back out of sight.

The Conley Bros are the bottom of the barrel Will.
It is beyond me how you cannot see how terrible they are. Reading back through the other posts I can see a unanimous opinion on this topix.
Their music is bad Will, real bad

If that's your opinion, fair enough, Commando.

But I'm puzzled how you can't seem to explain this opinion... makes you look like you're condemning The Conley Brothers of of some kind of grudge against them or something.

If they really seem this bad to you, why can't you put into intelligent form /why/ you think so?

Seems like an honest and simple enough request, no?

Everything. Their appearance. Hygiene. Smell. personal movements-ticks. off key. No melody-Cadence-Tempo-flow. Sound quality. Stage show. between Song talking. Hitting notes between songs. Sloppiness. poor songs even when performing covers. Endless list of why they are not good. I'll stop while they are still ahead.
Wow, I have no idea who you are and you location says Gainesville Georgia and I have no idea where that is at but you took the words I was going to post and plus some. I find it uncanny how so many feel so strongly against the Conley Bros.
For Will:
Hey, it's nothing personal, I don't even know them Conley Bros but I have heard them perform and it was bad, real bad.
See the "Everything" persons post for an explanation of why, dam didn't they do a good job explaining it!

Well, you said it best long ago, Commando, the Topix.com crowd is just of a naturally negative, "do nothing" bent:
Druid Hills Commando wrote:
I would agree that when Will uses Topix to "share" his or his friends music or musical event he is setting himself up for ridicule. Maybe not because the quality of the musicians but because Topix is not really the place for that, most people get on here to complain about whatever and to attack that which they hate.
I could start a post about some new movie I watched and liked and 9 out of 10 would say they hated it and I'm a idiot for posting, that's just the way it is.
Will, you seem like a nice guy but you are unrealistic if you think you can post what you do and get nice replies
The fact that despite all that negativity and worthlessness, we /still/ have 2000 "Yes" votes in favor of the Columbus-Phenix City music scene, and getting more votes every day.

I find that a significant positive force... indeed.

The Conley Brothers can be found performing at Del Ranch in Smith's Station Alabama every Thursday night, where they host the weekly open mic night.

Here's a sample of their music, for those unfamiliar with thier music to check out for themselves and form your own opinions... "I Need A Dumptruck" By The Conley Brothers:

http://www.artemisrecords.net/conley.html

That was from Henry Conley's first album, way back in 1996. Henry Conley's kept the "The Willfull Suspension of Disbelief" audio CD in print for almost 20 years now... first released way back in 1996:

http://www.artemisrecords.net/conley.html

==========Begin quoted text]=========
Columbus Ledger-Enquirer, Monday, July 29, 1996
"Henry Conley runs his sports card shop by day, but come nightfall, he turns into the soul of [...] a popular Columbus band...":

http://www.musik-news.org/post/3343/Henry_Con...

"By day, Henry Conley is the mild-mannered owner of a sports card shop
in Columbus. But as the shadows grow longer, the fingers on his left
hand begin to fidget. Chords from in the silent air, while his right
hand begins to strum at his side. Behind the huge, waist-high glass
cases of cards, his feet find a rhythm to notes only he can hear. By
nightfall, the transformation is complete. Henry Conley, sports card
guy; meet Henry Conley, jazz musician..."
[...]
Titled "The Willful Suspension of Disbelief," the cover shows a wide-
eyed, but detached Conley staring at a stripper on the front. On the
back, Conley stares with the same expression at a preacher n a
pulpit.
"Saturday night, Sunday morning," he says with a laugh. Songs
include "Pass Him Away," "It Ain't Bad to be Good" and "Mordecai" -
all written by Conley. "We really believe in his songs," says Gates.

[...]

Henry Conley, 35, is a gentle, likable man about the size of a small bear.
His hands are so large, he had to have a special specially made. He
loves sports and often plays softball with area teams.
As a kid in Savannah and later in Columbus, he wanted to play
professional baseball, "but I couldn't hit the curve ball". He still
can't. But while his sporting needs are met by baseball and softball,
his soul finds its freedom in music. On stage, his is constant energy
and the critical element that triggers the group's obvious chemistry.
Sometimes, he will drop his guitar to his side and hunch over, his
feet pounding away in a secret rhythm.
==========End quoted text]=========
"The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live,
mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time,
the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn,
burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across
the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and
everybody goes "Awww!" -Jack Kerouac
