Well, on Neighborhoods he also had songs about other stuff - Up All Night, Natives, Wishing Well, This Is Home aren't about girls. Snake Charmer is about Adam and eve and not necessarily a relationship song either. On that whole album there's literally only After Midnight and Even If She Falls. 

On DED Disaster and When I Was Young were also not about girls. My point still stands. 

How does your point stand though? You said it's not normal for Tom in general to sing about girls. He has always sang about girls, and never stopped singing about girls. The fact he had other subject matter does not negate the fact he has always sang about girls lol.

I'm saying you and Tombots who call it epic only say that because Tom described it as such. If he had described it as "experimental," that is what you would call it. If he said it was sex music, that's what you'd call it. If he said it was space jams, you would call it that. You aren't thinking for yourself, there is nothing epic about AVA. What is he doing that hasn't been done much better by someone else? Ripping off U2, singing out of key sounding like a dying cat, and dancing around like a fairie is not epic lol. 

1. I haven't stated my opinion on the matter.

2. You say repeatedly that you don't find AVA to be epic and is annoyed that others do, again - that is the definition of subjectiveness.

3. Do you think that epicness is the definition of innovation?

the fact that Tombots call AVA epic and believe it, despite the fact that nobody else sees it that way is annoying. the fact tombots don't have the wherewithal to step outside of their Tom bubble to realize this is what is annoying. 

Epic is certainly not shittily ripping off a lame band (U2), not being able to sing at all, and dancing around clueless. I know this much. And yes, innovation is a huge factor in being epic.

The idea of AVA was pretty epic at the beginning. The first album hits in a couple spots. The Adventure in particular.

Besides that, it's just something trying to be epic that never accomplishes it. Cheesy for the most part

And yes, obviously this is subjective. All opinions about music are subjective

Also, I don't consider any of my favorite music to be epic. I just love it for what it is. I am not that asinine like these programmed Tom Bots who wish they could suck a fart out of Tom's ass.

It's just incredibly asinine to sit here and act like it's epic, just because they love Tom and what he does. There is nothing he is doing that is actually epic. I don't sit here and say my favorite bands are epic, I just enjoy them because I do. Trying to act like they're better than they are is ridiculous, but such is the life of a TomBot.

Again, you're only stating the fact that you find it annoying that others don't share your opinions. 

"the fact that Tombots call AVA epic and believe it, despite the fact that nobody else sees it that way is annoying." - example #1. 

"shittily ripping off a lame band (U2)" - example #2.

Just accept that everyone is different man..

I do accept everyone is different. Epic is a very strong word. Tombots use it way too loosely, that's all I am saying. Just because you like it and just because he ventured out a little bit from blink's style does not make it epic. The dude can't sing at all and can barely play guitar (certainly sucks at it live), but sure, go ahead and call it epic. He's about as epic as Taco Bell coming out with a breakfast menu.

We must preserve the word epic for epic situations. The misuse of that word by Tom and his fans is usually done for exaggerating and creative thinking. It made sense with Valkyrie Missile and The Adventure when WDNTW came out though.

Exactly. It's been used wayyy to loosely. And I agree, those songs made it seem like he could be starting something Epic, but it didn't pan out that way.

Wow, he must be good enough though right? Why would you even be here at the first place if not?

What is it that you find so epic about Valkyrie Missile and The Adventure?

Again, I have never stated my opinion in the matter. I just find it weird when you're being a hypocrite with your "everyone have to think the way I do or else they're brainwashed" speech..

Find one person who isn't a Tom Bot that describes AVA as epic. Most of society considers it MEH.

But the FACT remains there are not normal people in society going around talking about how epic AVA is.
