    Most Pointless Moment 2019

    by cowboy71 » Sun Feb 10, 2019 6:09 pm

    :P

    This is all in fun but just wondering what you thought was the most pointless moment of 2019?

    For me, as much as I ADORE Delain, I thought given that they only had 45 minute sets, to do an extended drum and guitar solo was POINTLESS!

    Also even though I only caught one Kamelot set, looks like they did their usual amount of time wasting with solos, singalongs etc.

    Save it for your headlining shows people!!

    As anticipated, Kamelot did almost identical sets with the usual wankery strewn amongst it.

    When the Visions of Atlantis singer sent all the other musicians off-stage and started singing a solo (just her and piano) that sounded suspiciously like something out of the Celine Dion playbook. I find VoA a overly cheesy to begin with, but that display just put it waaaaaaay over the top.

    About 20 seconds into that song, we - and about a dozen people around us - got up and walked out of the ice rink. I can only handle so much cheese before my brain breaks, that that did it. :lol:

    Yeah, something about "knowing your audience". Van Canto clearly did, as they were very smart with both their sets by both mixing it up and also by doing original-cover version-original-cover etc.

    The wedding proposal during Van Canto. Not metal. Next year, hopefully someone comes up on stage and serves their significant other divorce papers.
    I should get around to updating my signature

    Delain, Kamelot, Visions of Atlantis, Van Canto ... I mean, is it that surprising? :lol:

    My friend and I decided to dangerously check Dragony at the ice rink. As soon as we got in, we hear the singer imitiating Arnold Schwarzenegger and then delivering this hideous, hideous high-pitch scream that made us storm out of the venue at once

    Pointless:
    - Any musician from FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE except the drummer. Especially this poor woman who was trying to sing, while being perfectly inaudible. All I could hear was a continuous wall of very fast drum double bass, uninterrupted for 3 minutes, repeat for the next song. I left after 3 songs, even though it was the last show, and there was a pillow fight.
    - The singer for NEKROGOBLIKON speaking between songs. I don't know where he's from (probably somewhere in the US), but I could not understand a single word of anything he said (and I stayed for the whole show).
    - Speaking of goblins, John Goblin. It looks like his only job is to photo-bomb the show.
    - The "jokes" from the singer for KALMAH, I couldn't understand anything, even when I understood individual words. Apparently he did the exact same thing last time.

    Oh wow, I missed this and I'm kinda glad, because I ended up enjoying them despite thinking most of their music was a little too sad for my taste.

    The Kalmah frontman's jokes. At least their sound was overall better this year!

    Most pointless moment: The muster drill in the Star Lounge (old Diamond/Pyramid).

    I've always been on the outside for muster drills. Being in there was body to body packed, took forever, couldn't hear a word anything that was said over the intercom, couldn't see any of the several muster seargents displaying how to put on a life preserver. It was a total waste of time. Is this new or has it been hosted in there before and always this way.

    PS: I think it was the gal that took our $3 bucks for the meet-n-greet stickers, told me she got so wasted from taking free drinks vs the $3 that she passed out in her cabin. She never made it to the muster drill even when they were banging on her cabin door, she never heard them. LOL I know they delay the begining of the muster drill until everybody is accounted for.

    I was in the Pyramid Lounge in 2017. My buds and I were actually fortunate enough to get a seat, but it was awful in there. In 2015 I think we were in the dining room, and that was okay? But they've probably stopped doing that now to make way for merch.

    The Theater is infamous for having bad sound depending on where you are. Ironically, right behind the sound booth is one of the worst places.

    On the theater floor, or in the wings sound MUCH better. From where I was, the sound was great, but I know your milage may very in that venue.

    Unless you love buttercream. I swear it was about 90% buttercream and 10% cake.

    I've always been on the outside for muster drills. Being in there was body to body packed, took forever, couldn't hear a word anything that was said over the intercom, couldn't see any of the several muster seargents displaying how to put on a life preserver. It was a total waste of time. Is this new or has it been hosted in there before and always this way.
    I was in the Pyramid Lounge in 2017. My buds and I were actually fortunate enough to get a seat, but it was awful in there. In 2015 I think we were in the dining room, and that was okay? But they've probably stopped doing that now to make way for merch.
    My muster station was in the dining room this year. I sat at a table with Mooyagi.
    Fun times! I've been lucky enough to get a dining room muster for the last 4 or 5 cruises. Makes up for being stuck in the sun on the rest of them.
    I should get around to updating my signature

    Which I always do, since hotel breakfast isn't compatible with my stupid insides. Most years there's cake, though I've never had it because I'm not a fan of GOOD cake. I think one year there was an ice sculpture of devil horns? Or something like that? Always worth checking out.

    They actually did two cakes this year. There was one on boarding day, and another one on day 3(?). I have no idea when they were actually served though, so I didn't get any. I remember there being devil horn ice sculptures on boarding day my first year (2016).

    After 3 previous years of outdoor muster, we got a dining room muster this year as well. Being indoors, seated, and out of the sun was pretty awesome. Actually sat with another couple from Utah...what are the odds?

    They did it more than once than, because 2016 was the year I missed.

    Most pointless? The dude who goes into the pit with a blow-up doll on his shoulders. It's a medium funny joke for 5 seconds, but then it just gets in the way of sightlines.

    (Note: Pikachu pit during Kalmah was a much better joke with way better execution.)

    In my opinion, the Skipper’s speech was pretty pointless this year. Maybe next year we’ll get a few band announcements during his speech?!!! :roll:

    Yes. Very annoying... he's always been a clown.. He was at karaoke and was bumping into everyone at the tables--hard to see at the best of times, then I saw whining about assholes--guess someone flattened his gf..

    ...
    This makes me think of times when people will hold up flags blocking everybody's sightlines behind them, how rude. I didn't witness it this year or can remember it being a problem on 70K. I'm just glad I've never been behind one of those. I'd probably just chicken it out and move my ass so it's not blocking my view. But I know others would definetely go crazy over that chit and have words.

    For the first time in 5 years I actually got a piece of the embark-day cake -- it wasn't bad, just yer basic cafeteria-sized cake.
    I also wandered in during the second cake, and there was something "foreign" in the piece that I got.
    I had to spit it out. Still no idea what it was. :shock:

    I really envy you people who got the indoor muster --even the ones stuck in an overcrowded Sphinct-- Pyrami-- err, STAR Lounge. Once again we got stuck with an outdoor muster, and EVERY year it seems we're stuck on the sun-facing side of the ship. :bitch:

    As for pointless moments, I have to agree that Kalmah's "jokes" also took the cake. (Just not the embark-day cake. :D )

    Putting all that plywood around the top deck only to have it warp when it rained. Then they had to rip it out because of the tripping hazzard it created. Why was that put there anyway?

    Dining room muster was awesome. First time for that.

    Putting all that plywood around the top deck only to have it warp when it rained. Then they had to rip it out because of the tripping hazzard it created. Why was that put there anyway?
    They will be filing that one away under "it seemed like a good idea at the time" :P
    But what was it for? I was trying to figure it out the first day? People dropping beer and cigarettes?

    They have done this every year since 2015 when we changed ships. I can't imagine the reasoning behind it other then Royal Caribbean wanting to protect the deck from something. What that something could be is the question of the day.

    The Kalmah frontman's jokes. At least their sound was overall better this year!
    This. And the muster drill, like every year, outside and facing the sun. Damnit.
