Why is that, ikke? Because I have a different opinion from yours?ikke wrote:youre a big jerk you know thathambone1 wrote:I can listen to a turntablist for about thirty seconds before it all starts sounding the same. I don't deny that is is skillful, sometimes musical, and possibly even talented, but IMO they're one-trick ponies, and more visual masturbation that music. It's show business. Kinda like spinning plates on sticks to me.
It's not just turntablists, though. Electronic musicians with their full-body-motion filter sweeps and head bobbing, rock guitarists pulling faces as they slam a simple power chord, DJs punching the air...it's all the same to me. Hollywood show business.
I'd much rather listen to quality musicianship and songwriting than watch a 21st-century Spinal Tap.
That's just me, though...
