  • Wildcard-Search
    With the help of a so-called wildcard you can look for several search words, which have the same word beginning. If you search e.g. for "Typo*", the search will find everything that begins with "Typo" : Typo3, Typoscript, Typocode, Typo3user... etc.
  • Negative search
    If you do not want to find certain expressions in your search result, you can cause this with placing a hyphen in front. Terms containing this phrase are excluded from the search result.
  • Search for user
    It is possible to limit the search result on answers of certain users. In addition to the retrieval query attach still another "user:username" and find the results, which were written by this certain user. If the username could not be found this will be ignored.

don't know if it's postet yet, but the crazy person karsten olesen has made his traditionel complete guide to the roskilde lineup.

as usual he's wrong in a lot of places, but it's impressive none the less:

Why do you think he is crazy?

I think it is refreshing to get a review of the RF bands from someone else besides RF themselves in their rather undechiffrable descriptions.
That said I disagree a lot with his ratings of the bands, so the guide does not seem that useful to me.

Its scary.. You could almost take my personal must-see/most propably will list and merge it on his "Green Spots" an you have a match. This is especially interesting as it true for the bands in the small print as well as headliners and subs.
Maybe I just agree with him when it comes to quality in music.

On another note, I think his review is important because he is not dependend on his readers. I personally dont give a lot for the reviews by Soundvenue, B.T or EB.. Politikken is a bit better, but still very much in line with a certain group of readers. Roskildes own reviews/band descriptions are IMO borderline useless, as they in general are very bias.
So this is a fresh subjective input, that hasn't been tempered to fit the readers opinions..

(I dont need to say that I believe that everyone is entitled to have their own opinion on whats good music and whats not, do I?)

Peace out..

As a hobbyist writer for Soundvenue, I can honestly say that I don't give two shits about what my readers may think of me or how I fit into the "profile". I write what I want to, period. I have had one review out of 400 rejected by the editors and that wasn't because of the opinion expressed in it, but merely because we realised that the record it was about had come out a year earlier and thus it was a bit too late to be of any interest. Still, Karsten Olesen's guide is a good read. Sometimes a bit out there, but nevertheless interesting because he never makes compromises.

Thats noted Coldblooded... I guess Soundvenue has become a little to much music&STYLE for my liking, but reading the actual magasin reviews, they do tend to have a good edge to them... maybe I was a bit harsh in my reviewicon_smile.gif

One major flaw in his guide is that he completely ignores the Apollo Countdown stage, deriding it with a note that it probably won't even be there next year. Admittedly I don't have heaps of must-sees from that list either, but that's not to say that it completely lacks anything of interest or substance. Khalazer for example will blow the socks off of many a hiphop-listener, I predict.

I took a quit look at the guide stopped at page 7, where I saw that he gave The Shins a red minus. At best he just doesn't have the same music taste as me, but I really think he just write something just to write it, and therefore I see no reason for reading the rest of the 88 pages.

Crazy... my thoughts exactly. I mean, props to the guy that he's taken the time to write 88 pages on his own opinion, but I'm fine with just keeping it in my head. Also, I think the major flaw of this guide is that it is not an unbiased guide. An 88 page comprehensive guide like this deserves to be more than just the ramblings of a hyperactive festival-goer.

And what is more, he obviously feels the need to flash his Master degree to emphasize his opinion - cand.scient.bibl. (master in Library/Information Sciences) has absolutely nothing to do with music. Very little, to the most. So why the hell do i need to know? Well, to me it just seems like some guy badly needs to tell the world his opinion.

And yes, I do disagree with a lot of his marks, but I'm not gonna comment on them since that's probably just what he wants me to.

It could be the fact that he is actually a music librarian at bibzoom.dk? The site name is terrible but it's still the digital music service of the danish libraries. You might not agree with him - I often don't - but his education and his day job has quite a lot to do with music. Disagree as you migt, but be fair.
