WTF is that?

Picture responses that aren't obvious remind me of my DJ friend who thinks just because I've been on beatport he can start rifling off obscure artists like I hang out with all of them on weekends.

No offense Beats Me, but jeez man, he's Aphex Twin. LOL, that cracked me up. I guess it shows that there's music famous, and then there's Mohamed Ali famous. A lot of very smart people say he's the guy from the 2nd half of the 20th century that people will have heard of a hundred years from now, if that makes sense. Guy's ridiculous.

Well in that case, I said PROS, not mental patients pumping out digital farts for art fags while going "I can't believe people are buying this shit. That's hilarious."















Joke. :)

I never get the Mac vs. PC thing. I think Macs are vastly superior from most PC's, for a many reasons. I just think Apple are good at what they do. World altering good actually. But you could easily build a PC to do anything you wanted it to do. It's like saying you can only play guitar well on a Fender, and anyone who plays a Gibson is obviously going to have more difficulty playing well. It's the guitarist that counts. That said, I think some people who are well known and use PC's used them years ago. If you're starting out now, Macs seem to be a good option because they just work. Think about the guy that designed the Macbooks, Macbook Pro, iPod, iPod Touch, iPhone- what's up with that guy? If you own a Mac there's just something effortless about them, like a computer a human would have. But that doesn't help you make music. Music's in your head. And the air.
