- I wrote a review, and then due to a Wikia error it lost my session data before I could save it and I then lost what I wrote. So I've given up trying to write the fucking thing again because Wikia and iPhone are a crap combination. And FU to both of them! Pup 05:53 10 Mar '12
|Humour:||6||Okay, longer version, started again.
Firstly the issues. The_Great_Gig_in_the_Sky and HowTo:Recognise a dubstep song both use a similar joke to the wubwubwub joke. The addition of the power tools adds a new element to it, but not so much that it makes the joke new again.
For many readers it will be new, so definitely keep it. But because for many it won't be, it cannot dominate half the article. That means you'll have to add something more to this to counterbalance.
My initial though was a discography along similar lines to the way the humour in Street fighter works. If all his work sounds the same, make jokes in a repetitive fashion about the repetitive nature.
Also play more with the fact the guy is a douche bag of maximum douchebaggery value. Draw into the light all his douchebaggery foibles and make light of them.
Beyond that, the material you have in here is good so far, but it needs more to be able to elevate it to feature imnho.
|Concept:||7||Ditto the above bit.
This guy has obvious douchebag about him. I'm saying it a few times, because my first feeling on reading this is that I still don't know enough about him to quite get all the humour.
I'm also reviewing this from the standpoint that I came into this having no prior knowledge of your topic. That has coloured the way I've seen this, but by the same token you should assume that most of your audience won't have any prior knowledge of the topic.
I want to know what it is about this guy - other than his hair and his inability to make original music - makes him such a douche. The dancing and not hitting pause line is a start on that sort of thing. I'd like to see more of it.
Is he also only working with big name bands for a short period at a time as his douchery can only be taken in small doses?
|Prose and formatting:||7||Good spelling and formatting. I would add in an infobox similar to the one found on Wikipedia:Skrillex and if you are going to do something along the lines of the discography I'd have it in a table similar to Wikipedia:Skrillex discography but without the stupid chart placement bits.
Always wanted to do that in an article. This seems to be the best place.
|Images:||8||Informing the power tools - which are more like punctuation than images in their own right, but they do add to the article - the picture selection is good.
The first image sets up the douchebaggery angle.
The second is completely out of place but the immaturity of the image along with the wub link back in makes it work on two different levels. The caption is masterful.
The third image is a brilliant one but I can't help feeling the caption is letting it down somewhat. Having said that, I have nothing in mind for a better caption for it.
If you do extend the article then I'd suggest more images may be needed. Parody of album/single covers as a maybe?
|Miscellaneous:||7||Okay, this is a little shorter than what I lost before but covers off the main points I would have made if my phone hadn't let me down.
Hopefully it's detailed enough to give you an idea of what you may change, but the reality is that it's not what has to change. I noticed it's on VFH. I'm vacillating as to wether or not I'm going to vote for. This means that my gut feel is that it will scrape through as a feature, but it isn't the best you have ever done, and it wouldn't take a huge amount to push it a level higher.
|Final Score:||35||Written once. Written as a synopsis for second time. Written a third time, and I've gone back over this review and written additional stuff in. This review was a bastard, so I hope you get something worthwhile out of it.|
