haha i'm really not a person who gets off on "being right" but i honestly want to do everyone a favor and help their left-brain reason this out a
first off: the "facts".
- you nitpicked at what i said without actually responding to any of the thoughts presented.. is it weird to think like that all the time? cuz i
think you know very well that what i said wasn't "false"...
- (wikipedia): "MDMA acts as a releasing agent of serotonin, norepinephrine, and dopamine (DA).."
... so yeah.. you added a variable to the equation, but didn't disprove (or acknowledge) what i suggested.. this drug among others is going to
create a strong "imprint" (a great timothy leary concept) of that experience, which the brain will then look-to and reference in relation to future
a vicious cycle that is encouraged in most mainstream realms of electronic music concerts and FESTIVALS. (am i the only one who has noticed that 2 out
of 3 festivals in 2011 and 2012 are comprised purely of DJs and laptop jockeys..? anyone?)
dude. first off '___' is everywhere and considering i haven't taken the drug myself, i'm DEFINITELY not saying it's... "bad". if we have to
use such words.. but if you actually read what i was saying..
it IS pretty obvious that drugs such as '___' (or mushrooms and '___' for that matter... (which i have taken)) do indeed create a very potent
experience (and hence memory/imprint) on the mind. the setting is what ultimately characterizes the experience. this is true in every realm of
reality and perception. do you disagree?
well..golly you got me here. i guess i'm wronnnn.... oh wait.
i was thinking of the band the two founding members started in 1968 called The Organisation. which was even more innovative and experimental than
kraftwerk.. but okay since that "fact" was wrong.. by your reasoning.. everything else i said is not valid enough to respond to..
lemme keep it short so you can easily understand:
-the 4/4 dance-beat is nothing new. the fact that strong bass influencing the primal parts of the mind is nothing new. with the accessibility of the
laptop, anyone who can click a mouse can create a composition... and in theory this is cool... right? but with "dubstep" essentially promoting a
pattern of repetition, imitation, remixing etc... it's a low standard. and its an easy "scene" one can "join" and feel like "they belong" with
the rest of the weak-willed, half-assed composers riding the bandwagon to an already eager fan-base that "just can't get enough of that wob wob
-oh and btw... the "wob wob wob wubwubwubwubwubwub" in actual-musician-talk is called "accenting the triplet beats by using an envelope on the
effect" ..sorry to ruin the pony's one good magic trick
it's an automated feature in whatever laptop program they happen to be running. ProTools, Sonar, Ableton etc are all very capable of it..
and it really is a matter of pointing and clicking folks..
however since i don't want to come off as complete "hater" (although i don't really care how i come off anyhow..)
i gotta say that i do enjoy quite a lot of electronic music that doesn't use a knowledge of basic human-psychology to market their music to the
-Boards of Canada
etc etc etc..
stop thinking about what your friends like and use wikipedia and youtube for one of the very few things they ARE good for: wading through the
over-diluted sea of filth to find the media that actually communicates something with some real sincerity.
