Conversation between Inglume and thomasny18
Jun 23, 2020
It's great to hear from you again. I'm doing fine myself, though admittedly fatigued. Been trying to find a balance after everything got messed up cause of quarantine. Think I'm finding my sense of direction again. Watching films and listening to music helps with some of the stress. For me, I'm equally interested in both film and music, hence why I finally started up a Letterboxd. (If you were wondering: I know you're still on Twitter, but I don't check anymore so I originally felt inclined to leave a shout here).
Jun 22, 2020
I feel like you asked me how was I around a month ago, but I was busy and not really on here, so I didn't get to responding. I'm fine. Getting back into watching films, which in a way makes me less interested to listen to music. I guess for me, I can only have one thing or the other. I've looked at your letterboxd, you've got a great knowledge on films. Other than that, I decided to start screenwriting again. I hope you're doing well too.

Hey, I have a song out! When you have the chance to, give it a listen. Haven't added it to AOTY yet, so here the YouTube music video link:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j5a0jTc9S10

I wrote this song and filmed the video while in quarantine. Took many inspirations from Chinese folk and alt-country. The concept of the video and song, I'll leave as a surprise (no spoilers of course), plus it's up to interpretation. Hope I can cheer some people up and get everyone together in these uncertain times, enjoy!

Hey thomas, you should probably update the "Reviews that need more attention" section now lol.

What's your favorite album to █▀█ █▄█ ▀█▀ to? It's for a list.

I need to change my display name, but I've been lazy and I'm not sure who to shout out :/

Know this was a reference to my Discord name, thought I'd mention that too tho

Twitter is addictive and especially hip hop Twitter can be a bit boring, but yes, you should use it more.
Jul 23, 2019
I accidentally clicked your Twitter link and saw your FaceApp tweets, lol. Speaking of Twitter, I should get back to using it a bit more.
Jul 23, 2019
Wait, you have a Twitter?
Jul 23, 2019
Lmao I see you've been messin' around with FaceApp
Jul 23, 2019
But honestly, I can relate with you. I've noticed the amount of attention I've accumulated in just the last 3 months and how sudden my growth was. I think I write so many long reviews, talk to Rob more often on Discord, and be more active on here cause it makes me get rid of the little bit of guilt I have for being such a "big" user
Jul 23, 2019
Sure, I'll get you a list of smaller users when I go through them later on, or you can look through my 500-followers shoutout list.

Also, I don't think you should feel so guilty about having so many followers. I definitely think you deserve the attention for being such a friendly person and for helping out with the site by giving Rob suggestions. Not everyone on here is like that (if you know what I mean ;)
Jul 23, 2019
Also, you seem to be aware about smaller users a lot more than me. By any chance, could you list some smaller users, preferably ones that put some effort in their reviews, in case I haven't followed them already?
Jul 23, 2019
Btw, I will reply to properly regarding him, but not right now if that's alright. I'm really sorry. I've just been in a really stressed out mood in these last few hours, so I'd rather respond when I'm thinking more clearly.

Thanks for the praise. I don't think I really deserve the followers that much at all tbh. For example, i realised i just passed Throwbackgmac in followers and that's a real shame. I think I promote smaller users because it makes me feel less guilty about the attention.
Jul 22, 2019
But of course, if you don't want to talk about it, that's perfectly fine. I don't want to pressure you to talk about something you're not comfortable with.
Jul 22, 2019
Hi Thomas! Just wanted to drop by and say that you've done a spectacular job of promoting smaller AOTY users on this site that deserve the attention! I know you're going through difficult situations atm, but on behalf of AOTY users, I just wanted to say thank you! Congrats on 350 followers too.

Sorry if this seems very out of place, but what's going on between you and B***? I'm concerned cause you've been frustrated for the last few days and I don't want things to escalate like last time.
Jul 20, 2019
Tysm! :) Yes, I was indeed Bart Simpson at one point, but the really old heads like Joao remembered that I was once a Chinese philosopher. That was before you even existed on the site and back when I was stuck at 40-50 followers, lol. My account will officially be a year old very soon. Man, it feels like I've been here for so much longer!
Jul 20, 2019
Congrats on 500 followers! I remember the days when you were Bart Simpson. At least I'm pretty sure that was you. Honestly, that feels so long ago that could've been anyone.

also you hurt my feelings :(

hey thebibleparttwo, stop pretending to be thomasny18 and go back to your hentai
Jul 15, 2019
no, inferior scum
Jul 3, 2019
Actually, no I was asleep at the time and was on like 201 or 202 when I woke up, so I wouldn't have
Jul 3, 2019
And thanks! I might have a screenshot of when I reached 200 followers imma check
Jul 3, 2019
What does the list title say btw? And why is my pfp there?
Jul 3, 2019
Yeah I broke the AOTY list system. I can add stuff to it, but I can't edit it, which means I can't delete it, LOL. Also, congrats on 300 followers man! Wish I kept a screenshot for you when you reached 200 followers
Jul 3, 2019
I think I broke the system
Jul 3, 2019
Whenever I try to access your list I get sent to the AOTY home page
Jul 2, 2019
Yeah, I'm like 90% sure he's fine, but doesn't want to make reviews anymore. The 10% of me was worried that this was something more serious. I found his channel on a Otoboke Beaver - Itekoma Hits video. He had one of the top comments and the comment left on the video was oddly similar to his review of the album. So, it's not detective work, just sheer coincidence!
Jul 2, 2019
Also, how did you find that channel? That's some serious detective work
Jul 2, 2019
That means he might've also seen our shouts, but isn't in the mood for saying anything.
Jul 2, 2019
So, if it's changed, then he had to manually change it
Jul 2, 2019
I checked his profile again just after you seeing your shouts. My guess is he's alive. His account doesn't have a bio anymore, but it used to say something like "I guess it's goodbye. Thanks for memories."
Jul 2, 2019
I could be wrong and I'm not trying to invade anyone's privacy. That's not my intention. I'm just trying to figure out if everything's fine
Jul 2, 2019
Hey man, I've noticed that you're pretty concerned about usedtobe and I am too. However, I think I discovered a YouTube channel profile that's most likely his. If you can find him commenting on YouTube if he never responds here, then I'm sure that means everything is ok. It even has one of the profile pics he used on AOTY. https://www.youtube.com/user/sourcherry23/featured?disable_polymer=1
Jun 26, 2019
Glad you're feeling a bit better today. :) I can't wait to see you try to prove me, a Madvillainy intellectual, wrong. lol
Jun 26, 2019
Thanks you. In all honesty, I've barely seen any Etika videos, I barely know his stuff, though obviously the situation is still saddening. That's why I didn't say anything about him in that post with the suicide prevention helplines. It feels wrong to act like I was fan because I weren't, especially when it's on a review that could get you likes. I'm feeling a bit better today though and I'm working on a Piñata review.
Jun 26, 2019
Hey don't worry, I understood what you meant by "terrible timing". One of the reasons why I was concerned about you when you made the review was the whole Etika situation that was also happening. I didn't want you to feel too overwhelmed with what was going on. I felt the need to say something to see if everything's alright instead of not responding and just liking the review.
Jun 25, 2019
Oh shit, I just realised what I said could be taken the wrong way. What I meant by "terrible timing" was that I don't want my own issues to be mixed in with his loss. If I knew he was going to be found dead so soon after that "review" I would've held back from saying anything about myself.
Jun 25, 2019
Hey, thanks for the comment you left on my review last night. I was just in such a low mood and really anxious to the point of almost throwing up lol. I'm feeling a bit uncomfortable how that review was just before Etika being found dead. Terrible timing, but I'll probably still keep it. It's not something I can just remove, just to add it back a week later. It's not one of types of "reviews"
Jun 14, 2019
The people on the AOTY server are just confused as to what the heck is going on. They don't know how to react, lol.

Yeah, I tend to like Fantano's negative reviews a fair bit more cause they're so entertaining. There's no reason to get mad at a bald man's opinion on the Internet, which is not the case for the general, somewhat toxic audience that he's had since MBDTF. Either way, I've kinda moved on from his content. I wasn't even aware of his 7/10 1000 gecs rating until I saw your "review".
Jun 14, 2019
I'm not on the AOTY discord server btw. Are they mad? Or are they fine?

I thought the Cupid Deluxe review was hilarious, but I heavily disagreed with it still. I can't get too mad when he negatively reviews something though. It's always funny. Also yeah, haven't really thought about how the users must listen label would fit, but I certainly agree that an album should be at least a week old before any such label gets given.
Jun 9, 2019
FANTANO GAVE CUPID DELUXE A 2/10?!?! Anyways, I do think a "must listen" for users would actually be a great idea, especially for lesser known albums that need more attention. I'm not too sure how it will fit alongside the critic "must listen" label though. Like critic "must hear" labels, I'm sure there will be a required number of ratings. Maybe moderators can verify ratings or make sure an album is over a week old so hyped up and bot invaded albums don't get the spotlight so easily.
Jun 9, 2019
I hope you didn't ignore MBDTF because of Fantano's 6/10 lol. But yeah, there's quite a few albums I love that he didn't love so much, such as Nick Cave - Push the Sky Away, Beach House - Depression Cherry, especially Little Women - Lung. Blood Orange - Cupid Deluxe he gave a 2/10 and I actually really liked it. I think someone might've said this before, but there should be a "must listen" for users and not just critics personally. I get how stan movements could make that plan flawed tho.
