junglesmacks - so, you dump on my post about if the Chemical Brothers are playing because apparently they are not to your liking. Then, dump on another from someone looking for a ride in an art car that you misunderstood to be for use of an art car, then post the following about not ridiculing or belittling?!? Jeesch, some people. None the less, I sincerely do hope you enjoy your burn.
See.. this is the thing.
We must all be careful not to ridicule or belittle that which we do not understand or care for. Say that you don't like it.. fine. But to start judging what is art or talent and what is not.. well.. that's just plain ignorance.
Electronic music is most definitely an art form.. albeit one that takes engaging and understanding to appreciate. The mathematical perfection of rhythm and tempos and being able to not only manipulate on an immediate basis, but to form a great movement over time is something that is incredible and does take talent regardless of how much you care for the end result. It's far from just "twisting knobs" of other people's music.. it's understanding rhythm and being able to manipulate it to the nth degree.
I mean.. why don't we get monkeys to stand up there and strum those guitar strings up and down? That doesn't take any talent, does it? That stupid accordion.. all you do is squeeze it in and out.. that doesn't take any talent.. does it? Drums.. bah.. drums.. all you do is beat things with sticks, right? Who needs talent for that?
Art? What's art? Who needs talent for art?
Live and let live and let create. Judge not lest ye be judged.No, that's not a stock photo..
