Heh... And while we're at it, what do people mean by "BASS!"?
Explain to me beautiful!

BASS is easier to explain.. it came from this prod which sampled chuck-d saying "BASS!" and got propagated by this band

i'll take the blame for the me beautiful. dont know exactly why it started though.. but the fix was the first register of the cliche on pouet iirc.

this video might also explain and/or illucidate certain peculiar aspects of the pouet BASS! trend.

I see now. Thanks! Anything else I should know about how sceners communicate?
(This is so... educational.)

Well, there is the (in)famous bbs-thread "fix me beautifull" which resulted in some minor threads like "merge me beautifull". After several times urls fucked up the oneliner (and partly the whole page) ps introduced the url-feature ("link me beautiful"). The later and the original beautifull with the less common double-l resulted in

* BASS *

-like posts. That's all. ;)
you put link into oneliner, no bbcodes or anything like that and it will turn into link me beautiful!!! wow, thats explained it.

I perfectly understand about BASS now that I've seen what ps suggested - I mean, who wouldn't give in?
But here's another one for you: "troll"? As a verb?

And imo, the "fix me beautiful" is quite obvious where it came from, then it seems like it all ended up in "me beautiful". Like...

A troll is a pain in the ass, usually, on bulleting board-like systems, the term [i think, correct me if i'm wrong] comes from the RPG troll creatures, which are usually dumb and aggressive.
The bestest troll so far, imo on pouet is / was EP, check out this topic to understand more, I think that's a great example of ult1mat3 tr0llage. Also, to understand more about that situation, you might also want to check this topic maybe.

Or maybe you shouldn't. :)

1st: Panamerican (see there) based demo scener, makes music, lives in the USA, is a compo organizer of Pilgrimage ("utah's annual demo party - the /only/ demo party in north america")
2nd: a person who acts like a dumbass in internet (see there) forums, resulting in huge useless threads. has his fun when people start to become angry about him and show their own stupidity. example for a troll: user 182
I somehow originally thought that "me beatifull" originates from a song, but I can't figure out now..

madenmann: way to go, now he'll ask about the pronstahr, you just like explaining how things work, admit it.
added on the 2005-10-11 08:06:30 by psenough psenough
i believe the original catch phrase for the me beatiful stuff came from that american comic movie with the suck me beautiful jokes. how it propagated into a pouet trend howhever is beyond my comprehension.

demo me beautiful
hypnoglow me beautiful

oh yeh, ask where hypnoglow came from next.. and explain how exactly it made us believe that lobsters are sexy to the extreme point.
added on the 2005-10-11 08:10:51 by psenough psenough
Haha, but for the pr0nstahr is the faq. ;)
(And the lobstars come from the lobstar god (who's a frog eater).)

But ps, tell us why no party is not ... Ok, forget it. Eurotrash me beautifull instead. ;)
added on the 2005-10-11 08:12:31 by psenough psenough
I tremble with excitement! Teach me about hypnoglow and lobsters and glöps!
And the FAQ doesn't tell me much about teh pr0nstahr since I know nothing about what (and who) goes on in the world, what with being a n00b and living in Argentina and whatnot.

argenTINA, so you're a female?
Ok, at least you should be familiar with the term "Panamerican" (no, it isn't an American with a pan).

Glöps are the currency here at pouet, check their value at the faq. And it's hard to teach someone about hypnoglow and lobsters. Just wait, someday it'll make *poop* and you'll know all about it.
HYPNOGLOW, search for hypnoglow at prods. lobsters. lobsters eggs in prostitutes pussy. thats all :)
