OOH DOUBLE ENTENDRE!
I'm scared to go there tbh, I went on a adventure though the forums and found out that the General section is, well, creepy. It's good that we are sane in the Audio section.

WUUUR SANE, AARRWENT WE? NIHUAHA

Actually, it's not that bad. I mean, once you get a bit involved in it, it is quite addicting.
Also, you have to have the ability to laugh at stupidity and sillyness.

as long as you avoid the obvious trolls and a few dickheaded regulars - you're fine.

The thing bout general though is the more you're known, the more people tend to pick at you.

Everybody thinks everyone is stupid. Make of that what you will.

People in the General Forum are stupid.

You won't be looked down upon for being an asshole in the general forum. It would make them hypocrites.

lol wtf.

also general is corrosive - you can only be seen negatively as time wears on there unless you pretty much keep your head low. Look at bahamut - he was helpful - buti n the where is/how to area - not general.

General is a den of vipers. Kinda like a noble court in a castle. But more in your face.

LOLWUT!?!?!?! Did you really use the word noble and General in the same context.

I would say its more like a combination of a manic depressive and tourettes syndrome convention where someone had spiked the punch with meth.

lol noble, really?

I hope to God that's the case, because maybe if the movie bombs, Hollywood exec morons will stop trying to make these atrocious live-action/CGI crossovers of cartoons. Seriously, Rocky and Bullwinkle was shit awful, Loony Tunes Back in Action was meh, and the dozen others I can't even remember are just that- completely forgettable.

Pretentious Music Thread

I dont see any purpose in straight up bashing/disrespecting an artists musicality and aesthetic values just for the sake of it. Does it make you feel good about yourself? Do you try and make people feel ashamed in hopes that someday their opinion will mold to fit yours?

Especially when on the other hand there is so much amazing music to be appreciated and discussed in a positive light.

And a lot of the electronic music may be compositionally generic and basic, and the "anti-electronic" or "anti-trance" critics overlook the fact that there is so much more control over sound design than an instrument crafter would have before the digital age. I've heard the term "tone snob" used at my school...well, OK....but composition is only HALF the battle of making music. The 21st century has the luxury of containing such tools and opportunities to manipulate sounds like never before. Without tone, you have no sound coming to play the notes within the composition; and without composition, you have no notes to utilize the tones. And then there's always the response of "there is no soul behind the tweaking of knobs" but its only up to the individual to decide what soul to them is.

I used to try and belittle other musicians and people in the past, but that was when I was insecure, had a large(r) ego, hadn't reached puberty yet and had a small penis.

Also, "pretentious" has to be the most overused word on the internet. It lost its effectiveness back in 2008.

lol, the last few years of my music education has been grappling with these same ideas. I'm an art major but i feel as if everything i've learned about contemporary art applies more to the music world. i've come to the conclusion that there really is no difference between art and music aside from the senses they stimulate. if anything, music is more abstract than the visual arts could ever hope to be. a music teacher of mine once pointed out the difference between minor and major chords in Russian vs. european music. She said that in general western standards major is happy and uplifting while minor is dissonant and sad. meanwhile things evolved differently in russia with major being minor and minor being major. I know it's not the best example but try comparing the music of mario to tetris. while both intervals give off a different feeling to us, think of how the tempo changes as things go bad in either song.

im aware of my hypocrisy for saying it, but people need to lay off heavy opinions when it comes to music. it's all abstract and things could have evolved in any number of different ways. while opinions ultimately define our music culture, how fair is it to assume that yours is the correct one?

i guess what im trying to say is say nothing but nice things. otherwise you sound like a fuck twat.
