Trying to redefine relevancy is not a starting point

Why are you redefining relevancy then?

What seems sad to me is that most of the people who say it's still "relevant" believe that "classical music" is something along the lines of the soundtrack of Frozen, the inspiration behind Eric Carmen's "All by myself", and BBC's disgusting Last Night of the Proms. I'd rather become an ICP groupie and chug sugar water at every show than sit through 15 minutes of this:

I can see that, I love the whole carnivalesque aspect of it: a gathering of the juggalos is where all the rules that govern your normal life are suspended, you do the opposite of what you would do in everyday life etc. Seems cool.
