Kaldath’s Corner: Scandal

Scandal

 

Greetings once again fellow machiners, as you know Kaldath’s Corner is here for me to share things with you that I have recently found and liked. This week is another music addition. I would like to share with you this time the Japanese Rock band “Scandal”.  Now Scandal is not a new band as I have seen 8+ albums for sale on itunes, however they are a new TO ME band!

I just learn of this band about 3 days ago and I must say that I think they are absolutely fantastic! I just love their sound. Now they have not yet taken Babymetals place as my favorite band though they are running a very close second at this time. A nice dream concert for me would be a Scandal / BabyMetal show here in the New Jersey / New York area!!

After the Jump Below I will link you to a few of their videos for your listening.Viewing enjoyment. The first two are my two current favorite songs of theirs and the third I am sharing because it fits in well with the theme of this site.

Enjoy!

Superman 1

The normal rules apply, which are: You are limited to Three (3) entries which are due by 5:00 PM Eastern Time on Tuesday April 21st.

That being said I wish you all Good luck!

Apologies

I want to apologize for not putting up a new caption contest this week. I just started back to work this past weekend and my days all kind of ran together as I am adjusting to my new schedule and it slipped my mind. I will have the new caption contest up next week instead of this week.

Kaldath’s Caption Contest #62: Results

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen of the HeroMachine community! I want to take a moment before getting to the Contest results to remind everyone that going forward that caption contest will be Bi-Weekly so there will not be a new caption contest today.

Feedback Wanted

Something happened today that has gotten me extremely disgusted and pissed off. A former member of this community has accused me of abuse of power and to paraphrase, in a nut shell has said I am being a bully here on the site. At this exact moment in time I am so angry that I am considering walking away and quitting my position as a moderator and blogger for Heromachine.

Now I know after I cool off and allow more rational thought to settle in I will realize just how foolish that line of thought is, especially considering the source of this accusation. Quitting will just be allowing him to win! But this does lead me to the point of this post. I want some honest feedback without any fear of reprisal on my part for what you have to say here. I need to know if any one else in the HeroMachine community feels I am abusing my power here?

I know I am not as friendly as JR or Linea24 I have not been known to go out of my way to greet new member like they do and I only tend to put up to handle technical issues or deal with rules violations, heck even I think Jr is the Current “Face” of Heromachine. My role has always been more in the background keeping the wheels turning,  even when it was just me and HammerKnight running things. Sure I am strict when it comes to enforcing our rules here on the site but I don’t think I am unfriendly or that I  abuse my power, but maybe I’m wrong. SO I want your opinion on my performance here. I am not looking for a pity party or a pat on the back to cheer me up. I want to know what you honestly think good or bad, so please leave a comment below

 

Thank You!

 

New Policy On Contests!

Okay folks, I am going to say this just once. I will NO LONGER TOLERATE  complaints about how contests are judged on any of the comment sections of any post on this blog. If you feel you have a legitimate complaint then contact JR via email please. If you can not find his email address then contact me and I will forward it on.My email address (Kaldath@Heromachine.com) is rather easy to find as it is listed at the bottom of any of my blog posts just before the comment section.

I had a member of this community back when I first took the site over to run for Jeff that became a big problem when it came to contests and had to eventually Ban him from this site. He is the only person aside from Spam Bots that I have ever had to ban and I really would like to keep it that way so if you have a complaint take it up in private with Jr, myself, or as a last resort Jeff. Thank you!

MODERATOR NOTE:

I Have closed the comments to this Topic and will be deleting all comments in it tomorrow ( Sunday March 29th ).

 

 

Kaldath’s Caption Contest #62

Ladies and Gentlemen it is once again time for our caption contest, however before we get started I have a bit of an announcement. I have decided to stop doing this contest as a weekly thing and instead will be returning to the format I had when I first started it. Starting with this one the caption contest will be bi-weekly from now on, meaning that I will be posting a new contest every other week with the contest winners being announced during the off weeks.

Now with that out of the way, it is time for all you machiners out there to give me your best dialogue for this image:
