i made the mistake of going through a section of the wcbn cd library called "world: other" this weekend. for anyone who doesn't know the genre, "world: other" is a kind of music combining celtic instrumentation with african rhythms and some other shit to make music that expresses the unity of all humans and the beauty of mother earth. that shit will fuck with your head. it's also really hard to explain to your therapist how it makes you feel about the world.

i guess i got too cocky after my extreme success dividing the section formerly known as the local section into two sections: "the local section" and "the mid-90s bar bands from sterling heights section." the latter section is filled with a lot of very good music that's really just not for us.

by anarchivist's logic, i can say right here on the internet, "black tent sounds like kraftwerk meets modest mouse," and he'd have a really vicious criticism of that music (the only one) and make fun of how much it sucks a lot. you'd expect more acceptance from someone who weasels his way into every possible show that's woefully inappropriate for boring-as-fuck derivative noise music with no real content of any kind.

You don't think noise is content?

i think his opinion of my music is rather low, rather than of noise in general.
