I went into Boston the other day, and we walked by several men playing on a "ghetto" drumset, consisting of tin cans and plastic bins. What is correct name for this genre of music? My friends all said it was Calypso, but I don't think it is. Does anyone know the name of the genre and/or anywhere where one can download tracks of this style of music?

I did Google it. And I don't see why you should insult someone's intelligence by linking to Google.

Google doesn't give any results on it.

You shouldn't get downrepped by a person for agreeing with that person. Rashakil Foil told me that he was rite :)
How is this insulting... she was obviously being nice.
She thinks you're dumb.
Suggestions are not insults.

Disregard Rashakil's comment.
He's an idiot. I'll give you good rep to cancel out his bad.
You have no idea what the OP is talking about, but chimed anyway.

I don't know...
Try googling it. ;o)

linux is correct for the most part. While it was a "suggestion", it's not as if you didn't expect him to think of trying that first, right? By suggesting something simple, you'd better be sure that it works. Or perhaps it's just the way you worded your post. Subtle things, like providing a link to Google; it makes it sound like the OP doesn't know what Google is.

And you wonder why you get negative reputation. :icon_rolleyes:

Please disregard Rashakil's ignorance.

And how is Rashakil Fol ignorant?

Regarding the original topic: I'm not really that knowledgeable about that type of music; the closest that has already been mentioned in this thread is probably Calypso. If you're really interested, I'd suggest visiting a forum more specialized in foreign music.

Okay you may be right, and I see what you are saying but I sincerely didn't mean it to be an insult.
What does OP stand for?

And how is Rashakil Fol ignorant?

Rashakil is ignorant for this reason: he told linux that I thought he was dumb. Although nothing I suggested even swayed to that kind of statement. All it does is create conflict. So if it wasn't ignorance... was it simply stupidity?

She thinks you're dumb.

>I sincerely didn't mean it to be an insult.
I believe you, but next time if it's something that's not so definitive, google it yourself to see if anything can be found with it.

>What does OP stand for?
Original Poster. It's a common forum abbreviation.

>he told linux that I thought he was dumb.
And you've never called him anything dumb or idiotic before?

>Although nothing I suggested even swayed to that kind of statement.
While I'm not offended by someone providing a link to Google to me, there are many people who do take this as an insult (if it doesn't work). If you aren't completely sure it's going to work, be safe and check it first.

In that case, linking to google with a proper search term would have been more like it since its likely that with a proper search term, the results would have been more rewarding. Linking to just Google, makes no sense.

Umm of course not! I don't even know him.

I was referring to Rashakil, not linux. In other words, if Rashakil Fol tells linux that you think he's dumb, I suppose that justifies you in saying that Rashakil's an idiot?

Regardless, think of it this way: you would probably think of someone as a fool if they used the internet and didn't know what Google was, correct? So by linking to Google, you're basically saying (I know it was unintentional) that the OP is in fact, a fool. So Rashakil's comment isn't actually that far off.

Just so you know for next time. I think ~s.o.s~ pretty much says it all here:

Actually it is completely 'off.' Rashakil had no right to tell linux that I thought he was dumb, which I in fact was not trying to imply. (Haven't I already said that??...) Rashakil just simply 'put words in my mouth.' So you can stop trying to "justify" your friend's mistake.
And btw: I've had plenty of people tell me to look a certain subject up on google and I had no hard feelings against them for that statement.

>Rashakil had no right to tell linux that I thought he was dumb
True.

>which I in fact was not trying to imply. (Haven't I already said that??...)
And I've said several times that I believe you. However, you did unintentionally imply that you thought he was dumb. Just because Rashakil said what your post was portraying doesn't mean he's ignorant. Rude, yes. But definitely not ignorant.

>So you can stop trying to "justify" your friend's mistake.
Who said he was my friend?

>lets all calm down...
I think we're calm.

I didn't mean for this to become Dramafest 2007... Anyways thanks for all of your help. Calypso music includes singing, which isn't really what I was after (I was after just the drumming...), however I do appreciate the replys.

Enough. No need to keep handing out -rep for pointless reasons.
Don't whine about me giving you bad rep, it was a good reason.
