Is this a definition of 'self-delusion'?

    I think we've all been equally bad at one point in life, thinking we were better than we actually were. But at least I didn't make a video of myself and put it on the internet. People are strange.

    He's not the worst player I've encountered though...

    I'd laugh if his mum came in.
     
  3. That's pretty funny. I love when people, regardless of their suckiness, will try to rock out as hard as humanly possible, to the point that their focusing more on headbanging then they are on music.



    Oh wait, nevermind. This guy took his shirt off. No shirt=rock star. He's ok in my book :rolleyes:

    Ditto what Oysterman said.

    I read somewhere that once something is on the Internet it will always exist someplace. I hope this guy doesn't run for public office.

    Where was this found? Is there more?
     
  5. I found another candidate for the Most Delusional Bassist Award: This Guy
    Does he really think that sounds good? Why does the audience cheer him on? If I was there in person for this, I'd be bleeding from the ears and crying.

    Man, I suck, but I don't think I'm that bad. Maybe I should post a video of myself on the internet and find out? lol... :p

    Does he actually think those are notes???? :eek: :rollno:
     
  12. So, does that mean he has to be gay ? And if he is, how is that relevant ? And why do you not simply say "he must be gay for having that" instead of some lame movie reference ? And I love the titles of the emoticons you picked : confused, eek, and help. Very open minded.

    bravo.

    Not only that, it was very unobservant. The poster is a Scarface poster.

    My turn, my turn. The first 2 can't beat this guy for extreme delusional. Try pulling an ashlee simpson on a bass.
