What if I hijack the feminist reading thread though?

Or, you know, you could read things from the feminist reading thread, hank.

JSIA.

Yeah I suppose that could happen.

Breadboy:

Why classical?

In a word: complexity.

No no, I get all of that. In a word, though: obvious.

I don't dislike classical. But I also think much of the music I and others have listed is uniquely complicated, original, and intelligent.


Bingo.  Which is why breadboy's a f-ing retard.

It only sounds original, complicated and intelligent because you haven't trained your ear to distinguish the difference. Essentially, you're comparing Judy Bloom to Goethe because you don't have a proper frame of reference from which to draw. Just read through that thread.  ;)

Right now listening to Olivia Tremor Control's "Dusk at Cubist Castle."  Someone on here recommended it to me; excellent choice!

And Breadboy, perhaps you could elaborate on why you think complexity is desirable?  Is complex music inherently better than simple music?  What does "complex music" even mean?

No, its quite more than that. It's experimenting with different sounds, tones, approaches to music, timing signatures, vocal melodies, emotional and intellectual expressions, etc.

It's more like comparing Pynchon or Eggers or Carver or Munro to Goethe. Only not.

Music is so tied to era, and music is currently so very vast that this argument is ridiculous.

Proper frame of reference. I know you say that tongue in cheek. Nice try, though.

I promise that you'll figure this out if you just read through a few of those pages.

I would have no problem writing a 250 page analysis of Judy Blume.

What are you trying to point out, besides the obvious?

Yawn. Done. Nothing I haven't heard before.

Make your point.
