Yeah same. I honestly feel like a real outlier when it comes to electronic music in general because it sounds like if you do anything with less than 118 BPM everyone loses their mind. Same thing with the last few Nick Cave records. Like, what is this ****? If I play notes, hold them over other random electronic noises, suddenly I'm a genius.

I'm happy to sit this zeitgeist out.

You shouldn't deprive us of your genius, especially if it'd be so easy.

Did I do something to you at some point? You always seem to unnecessarily hostile, even when there's really no reason.

For example, I think most people reading:

Would understand that I wasn't implying I was a genius. But you still read it the way that allowed you to take a swipe at me. Even on a topic that, given your previous comment, would probably be inclined to agree with me.

So what's the issue?

I'm making fun of your boomer reductionism. The genius of the rock zeitgeist could similarly be described as someone just plucking some strings, playing a repetitive beat, and moving their voice up and down over it.

I didn't get as much Pharoah as I'd have liked, but this is still really great for those late nights where you slowly down the 4th cocktail, staring into the void and wondering where it all went wrong.
Yeah I thought it was nice background music. I was thinking of incorporating it into my massage soundtrack playlist.
