By request, this sticky is here to recognize those which are considered the all time classic threads here at KC. Not only are they all entertaining reads, but if we don't bump them every year or so, they will fall beneath the ability of the search engine to find them again (it has a limit of 2 years).

Here then, your honorees:

==

"So what chord is this?"

I'd like to nominate the "So what chord is this?" thread. I think this one falls more into the shame category.

Do any of the original "vocoder" thread(s) exist? I've heard about them a lot but have never seen one.

I looked for them as I had been a participant. I found the general variety of them, but I think the most entertaining ones were either deleted by CYLON VOCODER or a moderator. I could only find a few of his last and they are not that great.

Eric

Don't worry, I missed many of them the first time around too. If you read the one about West Virginia, it was a while before I understood where Eric's old avatar came from.

There will be more threads that are created that end up here in The Hall. wink

Not to worry, Maximus, we'll get our chances to get in on some upcoming hall o' famers/shamers.

I think this one can't be missing. With the award-winning Joe Gerardi's flaming post.

Starting Trouble

Joe Gerardi's flaming post was a brilliant, twisted chapter in "Starting Trouble" (sort of like what might happen if Sam Kinison, George Carlin & Lisa Lampanelli were somehow able to forge a collaboration - with liberal amounts of Quaaludes and espresso).

But for sheer bombasticity "Trombone players rule" is epic in its' scope.


( However I still believe - with fond memories of my beloved Conn 8D French Horn - that Horn Players Rule ! )

Ehhhhh...I can't say I'd mind if that thread stayed buried. It's full of epic fail to be sure...but as someone who works in the MI industry, it was amazingly painful to watch that guy commit professional suicide. eek

So no one is interested in re-reading the epic flaming from Gerardi and others? Personally, I didn't partecipate in the flame war, but some of the posts were so virtuosic in their insulting nature, that I couldn't help laughing wildly.

+1, and then some. I laughed my arse off reading both last night.
Great concept: 'Virtuosic insulting'...

I nominate Carlo/Marino's NAMM Dinner 2009 Report. Because not everyone gets to meet and greet the other forumites!

Edit: Plus, it showcases the generosity of dB, Steve, and others. Not to mention the awesome community!

Shucks, now I'm really curous about that Coakley thread. If it is not added, can you at least pm me a link?

In more recent times I thought that the 'Keyboard Stereotypes' and 'Order of the 88' threads had some good ideas.
