I used to like Ariel Pink quite a bit but for some reason I just got sick of him. Back then I would occasionally listen to Steevie Moore and Gary War too. I'm actually about to listen to Ducktails now since I recently discovered the enigma that is Sam Mehran.
Ha, seriously. He goes on for an entire paragraph and now says he doesn't care enough to click on a couple of links. I also like how he says you don't appreciate music/history, yet continues to remain willfully ignorant about one of the more influential genres. http://i.imgur.com/1cDgc3r.jpg
"Then why the fuck have you been lecturing to me about the differences between hauntology and post-hauntology?" Are you saying that you have to be a Marxist or Derrida fan in order to appreciate a genre of music? I would think it would go without saying, but you don't have to agree with an artist's politics in order to like their art. After all, they are artists, not politicians. That's nice that you think a post that I made was lame. I care, really, much like I'm in a rush to go see what D-A-N- had to say.
The potluck insult was mostly written as an amusing anecdote. If that is not how you actually are, then you should really work on integrating your self in real life with your online persona. No, I haven't read that book as I'm not a fan of Marx or Derrida. Aside from school which has been keeping me busy as of late (my last math class ever, my last english class ever, medical terminology and psychology which are fun), I've actually been educating myself on the Mexican Drug War and the various cartels.
I couldn't care less if you don't like the Dum Dum Girls, much less any particular track by them that I have scrobbled the most in the last two weeks. You pay more attention to my charts than I do, but I couldn't care less what you think of them as you're probably somebody who thinks the Ramones sucked and frequently cited Morrissey's review for back up until you realized that even he had taken back what he said about them. It's just as easy to be asshole and talk shit as it is to enjoy music.
I don't ever remember saying that afrobeat is lame but that could be one way to describe it. Any culture with a beat attached to it sounds lame to me, if not just because it's stupid to attach a title like that to any culture, or beat. Having said that, I can only enjoy jazz, funk, and cheap beer in small doses so naturally a fusion genre of that wouldn't appeal to someone like me. It's good that people like you continue to enjoy and archive it though, or it might completely fade away into obscurity.
To be honest, I can't remember the last time that I went to Pitchfork, other than to laugh at how bad a review they gave something or somebody. At this point, only lamestreamers consider that site relevant. My age has nothing to do with anything unless you are trying to imply that I should have boring taste by now. If that is the case, than I am sorry to disappoint you. I have no idea what else you were going on about toward the end there, but if you post a lame song or video on my page then I am going to call you out for it. Next time maybe try harder, or perhaps less hard.
Actually, I find Jamie Stewart amusing and I'm really looking forward to Xiu Xiu's next album. Regardless, he is like a poor man's Morrissey, but that is precisely what makes him and their music so great to me. When I wrote the status that you misinterpreted as "internet > reality", I was actually mocking that position by illustrating how you can get your hopes up based on false internet personas.
