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.

"The new Snagel von Flusceen is pretty sick, Huh?"
You, my friend, are an idiot.

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.
oh god please no.

anybody human wrote: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.
Who's Mohamed Ali? JK

Seriously though I've always felt that Richard D. James is probably the closest thing we have to a true pioneering genius in our times.

please tell me you're doing a kind of parody of a mac fan boi post. or perhaps you work for apple marketing?? i've always felt the difffernce in an apple marketing employee and a mac fan boi is that one guy gets paid and the other actually pays to do the same thing.

As far as I know Rick Astley never used a Mac on stage either.

Hendrix only played good guitar processing his sound thru ableton and using looper on a mac... otherwise he sucked.

Modern Gibsons are overpriced garbage and you'd have to be a moron to buy one over a Fender, plus if you fuck the neck on a Fender you don't need to buy a new guitar... and you could beat a man to death with a Telecaster and it'll still be in tune and never get lost in a mix.
