      STMB   01/22/2017

      Sorry for the outage. The board went down for repairs on January 5th, and we didn't expect to be out for a full 16 days.  STMB is using a default skin, as you can see, and that will probably be the case for a few weeks.  Meanwhile, the board is working better than it ever has before.

Nah, you can use your own drums. The over-whelming majority of the melody has to derive from the sample posted, though. Check the rules in the beginning of the thread.

sounds like you're not really happy with my choice. Maybe it's not the best track to sample from, but it's challenging, at least for me.............hence more of a competition to get the most out of that.

can't wait to hear how ya'll flip it.

Nah, (at least, that isn't how I feel). In this battle situation, there is no good sample or bad sample, the sample is what it is. Some are more of a challenge than others.

This one will be fun.

The last battle was my first attempt at the battle. This one will be fun.

I'm interested to see the tracks that relies minimally on outside sounds (not considering the drums, that is) and really flips the subject matter to make something serious....

Hey folks, its me Bill.......The stbot has banned me from the message board and deleted all of my posts.....because i was abusive to 'miss stress' in a retarded post she made about burgers......im a strict non meat eater, so it obviously got me annoyed. all i did was call her a cunt and pasted the lyrics from krs1's 'beef' and a picture of masta killa promoting the 'go veg' campaign, i know the majority of you will be thinking so what..i eat meat too, but that aint the point....each to there own innit, a person should be able to say what they like without some politically correct censorship bullshit...its not like my point of view is gonna do any real harm to anyone....she must have her head up the ass of the st bot (RB whoever that is?) cause he got real shirty with me about bieng abusive so i told him to firmly stick the messageboard right up his arse, i found it pretty contradictory seem as nearly every member of the board called dansmith a cunt....but oh well, it was nice making beats with you folks.....thanks to all who made cool comments about my beats......happy christmas & stay in touch. you can get at me through my myspace page www.myspace.com/pbill

peace.

Daaaaamn, knocked out the box. Sounds familiar:

What you called someone a cunt for talking about burgers? Didn't you also get on someone's ass for talking about getting a tattoo? AND, you're the "holier than thou" cat when it comes to sharing samples and sounds and shit? 3 strikes homie.....these ST cats are from the left coast...3 strikes.

Don't hit your head on the turnbuckle on your way out.

I'll miss your beats though. They are dope as shit. Doesn't mean shit when it comes to personality though.

**Sorry for interrupting the thread, ya'll**

Later.

Bill...it IS pretty douchey to talk shit on someone for liking meat...that said I dunno bout a ban for that.

But I will close with some words of wisdom from Immortal Technique:

Immortal Technique - Beef & Broccoli

look, let me make something

abundantly clear for people

who are so bereft of activities

they feel like they gotta comment on mine.

first of all being a vegetarian should

never be associated with being

a revolutionary or being open-minded.

that's a dietary choice.

if someone wants to proliferate the

type of ignorance we're supposed to

be fighting by thinking that,

you're just fucking yourself.

i don't go around promoting

beef in poetry...shoving it in

people's faces.

i don't castigate people for not

eating steak sandwiches;

and i would never diss someone

for being a fucking broccoli-head,

or living off of radishes,

or eating grass or tofu.

i like a lot of vegan cuisine.

but the illogicality of expecting

everyone to adopt their particular

idea of what being healthy is

is just preposterous.

i've seen some of you herbivores;

and if you want to argue health,

y'all need to eat some kind of supplement

because some of y'all are so skinny

that it's disgusting; looking like the

only hip-hop motherfuckers on schindler's list.

being a malnutritioned-ass got nothing to do

with being revolutionary or being on-point.

i'll be damned if i let somebody else push

their agenda on me. you know i don't eat pork,

not because i'm a muslim, i just don't

really like it, but i really will

fuck a bird up. and fish is good

when that shit is fresh. it's like my nigga

from Can-Ox...if you don't like

the smell of burning meat, well then get

the fuck off the planet. you know i don't

criticize people for eating moss,

then don't open your fucking mouth

about my food, man. i like beef

and broccoli motherfucker. mind

your god-damn business. matter of fact...

you know what? i'm out. i feel like some

arroz con pollo, a banana daiquiri, and

a motherfucking bistec aponado.

ive seen much more offensive shit (e.g. about poeples faiths - recent tread that got taken down because of comments about jews)

but hey, back to the battles: hows it going yo?

Im having MAD trouble fitting my drums over what ive done already for some reason. Think its because i didnt use snapping with my very short samples that i cut it up into, but its sounding a mess ;)

all i did was call her a cunt

That's kinda funny right there.

Dude that sucks, I can't believe you got banned. I'm gonna seriously miss hearing your music. You gotta chill out I guess, I dunno...I know how it is sometimes you want to release a little tension or stress on a message board by starting shit and whatnot, but damn. Calling someone a cunt for eating a burger...I can't defend that.

Anyway just come up with a new moniker...it may be impossible to top the sheer creativity and uniqueness of "Bill," but I have faith in ya. :lol:

Bottom line, short temper, dope beats. Stick around, we'll know it's you from your sound.

I banged out a "test" beat for #43 just threw my chops together real quick...then last night I went and spent hours reassembling all my chops and fckn hated it. Last night was a waste. Oh well, my first beat will have to do it sounds pretty good. I just used one little drum break and everything else is from the source, including some sampled kicks and snares. Gotta love the stereo separation on the sample track!

ive ended upsing bass soudns primarily from the sample, actaully only use about 2 bars of it... not really got the hang of this yet, beats pretty scrappy but i guess it kinda sums up what i do. Ready to post on myspaz tomorrow (fucked the mastering, its really quiet, and the sample at the start is loud, sorry about that) alsso acidently double the drums at one point... im just making excuses. anyway,. look forward to tomorrow! peace out
