Ooooh and we been getting along fine lately: dub step? Boring, too much sampling, no instruments, talent? Na don't ge me wrong two step was cool, but dub step is not fly enough, it aint black enough to be cool. Ok now I'm sounding like I is black, not but them guys do know their music. It's gone off the rails recently, what can I say...

Well nice knowing ya. :P

If you have to be stoned to like music then it's not good music, this is not the 60s. ;)

If you have to put restrictions on music, then you don't know what good music is, this is not the 1300's.

Oh you have to put restrictions on good music, people who just steal other peoples music and have no discernible talent of their own, that's not good music, that's regurgitating stuff someone went out of their way to create (remixes piss me off the most, no wonder you're getting no money for that, you didn't do jack shit). Don't be so naïve. We judge music by how long a band lasts, how many people like them, how different it is, how talented the performers are, whether live they don't just turn up on stage and push a button and walk off, or can't sing and just mime, all sorts. We don't judge music by a passing fad that will probably be deader than disco in no time. Not referring to any music genres per se but get real dude. ;)

Seriously spare me the "free form" everything is good crap, some bands are just not going to last. Hell some music forms are just so trite, and so copying other people they didn't deserve to be there in the first place. Let me tell you what producers look for, they look for the next best thing, not something that is an iteration of someone else's talent. Get real, you can't put a label on just damn good, my ass. There are bands I can't stand that are damned good. There is some objectivity in any art form.

Let me tell you what I value, I value sheer musical talent, and ability to play music in a way that just works, I value someone who doesn't play to the crowd but develops their own flavour. I value creativity, a muse of fire, that would ascend the very heavens of invention. What I don't value is some twat singing or using someone else's song because they don't have the creativity to make their own songs. It doesn't have to be all their own work, it doesn't even have to be any of it, but it has to be composed in such a way that it is not overly derivative. It has to have something of a muse.

Now I am not a big fan of "dance music", but occasionally someone just does something amazing: it's not all their own music it's not therefore original but it is put together in such a away that the talent is obvious:



And what do you have against the 1300's anyway, a lot of the late middle age music was very original, I wish we had preserved it all. It's only now in the 21st century where we have so much music at our command, that some artists at least feel no needed to have any talent any more.

If music only sounds good when you're off your nut on your favourite drug, and not when you're sitting there listening to it sober and appreciating it as well, it aint good music. Live with it.

Favorite protein shake flavors:
1. original
2. peanut butter
3. All the others taste like sick.

Favourite action movie one liners:

1.(The Dark Knight) Joker: "I like it when they've got a little fight in them". Batman (appearing from nowhere): "Then you're gonna love me".
2. (Predator) Blain: "I Ain't got time to bleed"
3. (Matrix) Trinity: "Dodge this"
4. (Predator) Dutch: "Stick around"
5. (Total Recall) Quaid: "Consider this a divorce"
Life is infinitely stranger than anything which the mind of man could invent. We would not dare to conceive the things which are really mere commonplaces of existence. If we could fly out of that window hand in hand, hover over this great city, gently remove the roofs, and peep in at the queer things which are going on, the strange coincidences, the plannings, the cross-purposes, the wonderful chains of events, working through generations, and leading to the most outre results, it would make all fiction with its conventionalities and foreseen conclusions most stale and unprofitable.

Favourite action movie one-liners:

1.) "Draw." Kurt Russell-"Escape From L.A."

-In the scene Snake Plissken (Russell) is surrounded by four guys armed to the teeth. He raises his hand and picks up a pop can saying, "What do you say we play a little, 'Bangkok Rules,' nobody draws 'til this can hits the ground." Russell then throws the can high into the air, and as the four guys are staring up at the can, he blows them all to Hell. A second later, the can hits the ground and Russell says, "Draw."

2.) "Yippeee-Kiyaayyyy, motherfucker!" Bruce Willis-"Die Hard"

3.) "Go fuck yourself." Last words of Neal McDonough's character in, "The Hitcher." This is technically a horror movie, sorry.

4.) "You missed. (Picks up the Uzi and shoots the gang members' car) I missed too. (Shoots the gang member in the ankle) You see, that's the concept. Take some shooting lessons, asshole." Michael Douglas-"Falling Down."

I consider that a one-liner as it is unbroken dialogue.

5.) "Sounds like you've had a hard life. Good thing it's over." Steve Austin-"The Condemned"

TOP 5 SONGS IN A LANGUAGE OTHER THAN YOUR OWN:

1.) Rammstein: "Du Hast"

2.) Falco: "Rock Me Amadeus"

3.) Nena: "99 Luftballoons"

4.) Ritchie Valens "La Bamba"

5.) Arash "Tike Tike Kardi"

5 overated things in life:

1) sex ( yes I am doing it right, it's not as important as people make out, listen up, you can, and this may shock you have more fun doing something else, it is possible)
2) chocolate, don't get it, it's not better than sex and hence less important
3) Business men, don't get me wrong I've been one, but hell such a pretentious group of cnuts
4) TV, by law it was always better than when you were a kid, it just seems so meh now
5) American comedy, what the fuck happened there?

5 things I couldn't do without

1) my PC, no brainer
2) family, seriously they help me atm to keep sane, I guess I'm lucky only 80% of my family suck
3) alcohol, it eases the pain in the operation I call life.
4) mistakes
5) A lovely cup of tea

Just looking for a movie, I've seen As Good as it Gets, but not in ages, I remember really liking it so thanks for the reminder Ed. :)

Blue Velvet is a great movie, disturbing but if you can watch it to the end, it is well worth the effort. That sex scene still haunts me, you know what I mean. ;)
