State of Music – From 2005

The State of Music

So I go over to George’s site. ( I used to work with George in the bowels of M$ subcontracting. Most of the people there were complete morons. But then again…umm….that is true everywhere.)

Actually the M$ people were complete f*cktards. I remember that in that call center I had been there two weeks and was doing the walk-around assistance to the ‘techs’ that worked there. I offered the solutions to the more difficult problems. The M$ reps said
“How long has he been here?”
“2 weeks.”
“Why the hell is he doing advanced trouble-shooting?”
“He is good.”

Let me answer that here and now.
Your product SUCKED.
It still sucks.
Working as a subcontractor for you was when I decided that I needed to get away from Windows entirely….

I get this off his site

all the great artists are gone now.
johnny cash, frank sinatra, william s burroughs, mel torme, john lennon, miles davis, count basie, stevie ray vaughan, and many others
I feel like a baby while writing this, I cant stop tearing up, because I sincerely believe that there will not be anymore great musicians. everything is in the past
what do we have to look forward to now?
good charlottes new cd?
yay 50 cent is going back on tour.

dearest readers, if you never believe anything I say, please believe this

music is dead

I have to sternly disgagree with you George.

So I went to his MSN ID and type:

(08:42:21) OsIgnis: music is not dead
(08:42:33) OsIgnis: Tool and The Black Crowes still make music
(08:42:35) burn: is it just taking a loooong nap?
(08:42:46) burn: tool broke up
(08:42:52) OsIgnis: nope
(08:42:55) OsIgnis: in studio now
(08:43:08) OsIgnis: Crowes broke up but are back together and coming HERE NEXT MONTH
(08:43:10) OsIgnis: w00t
(08:43:26) burn: can you compare those two bands to anyone that i listed?
(08:43:36) burn: or in fact any band around now to those people?
(08:44:05) OsIgnis: no they are better…that is my point…just because the ‘tards that comprise the majority of america listen to shite
(08:44:09) OsIgnis: doesn’t mean that music is dead
(08:44:16) OsIgnis: just that stupidity is rampant
(08:44:46) OsIgnis: HEY……you know what…you just gave me part two of my daily three part blog
(08:45:00) burn: oh really
(08:45:04) OsIgnis: 🙂
(08:45:06) burn: ill have to read that 😛

I misunderstood the part of comparing the bands he listed to those exist now.
He had listed that Thug Idiot 50 cent and those poppy ‘tards Good Charlotte in the post.
The Beatles.
Single greatest rock band EVER.
Sinatra was good, Basie good, etc…
William Burroughs was not in their class. Torme’ either.
Johnny Cash was the f*cking man.
But let us get something straight.
Stevie Ray Vaughn was WAY over-rated.
You left out some people to George.
Pink Floyd
Led Zeppelin
The Doors
James Brown
Black Sabbath
ZZ Top
Jimi Hendrix
I am sure I ma leaving some out but there you go.
The state of music does suck.
There are not as many greats as there once were.
They are still here though.
Blues rock?
Robert Randolph and the Family Band will make you LOVE! (yes they are the Debian of blues)

You like your rock with a LIBERAL dash of a blues flavor?
The Black Crowes are the best at that.

You like heavier stuff?
Tool will rock you. Intellectual flavored. Amazing stuff.

We are in a funk void though. We were doing great until Prince lost his mind. He is probably the most brilliant musician to be born in the last couple hundred years and he just kind of lost it. We are less musically for his void.

Music is not DEAD.
It is hurting.

Prince is a Complete F&^%tarded TOOL – My Open Letter

11/17/2008 Leave a comment

Look up above this line. This was Prince when he was ultra cool.
ANYONE who knows me can attest to the fact that I am huge prince fan. I have followed his music since 1981. Controversy hit the airwaves and I was just blown away by his intensity and sheer vibrant groove. I followed his career avidly up until Graffiti Bridge…
Prince then wandered a bit into suckness. I started to just gain as much older material as I could. Since Bridge he has been hit and miss. Well..
I guess since Lovesexy then if we want to get all technical.
He came back with strength and stuff on Diamonds and Pearls…
Prince lost his way after that. he has been lucky to have 3 good songs an album….Crystal Ball…..3 cds…..3 good songs….
Here is a little message to Prince:
Prince you are a musical genius but you have lost your way…You are sending fan sites cease and desist letters….AGAIN…..yeah I remember when you did it before. These are your fans you dumbass. These are the people that BUY your music.
I personally don’t know why anymore. Planet Earth is a travesty of a brilliant musician lost in the mire of your own retardation and ego. When you let go you rock like nobodies business. Stop preaching and get funky you asshat.
Since you are clueless let me tell what Prince Fans United’s logo really says…..well maybe you can get it if you THINK for once. Take a look.
That’s right “Prince F*&^k U”.
Does it even enter your head that it might be a bad thing when the people who buy your music put this kind of thing on their page. The pages that the fans go to MORE than yours?
Attacking a lady because her kid was dancing to Let’s Go Crazy on youtube?
WTF is wrong with you?
I found out about this because I, once again, was trying to see the Partyup performance on SNL. I have never seen it and figured someone must share a love of your music and have put it up…..oh but NOoOoOOoOOo your ego has forbidden that.
I will go you one further. You are an @sshole and I am sorry that all this wonderful music I have has to be created by a shortsighted money grubbing little napoleon @sshole such as yourself. If I could NOT like your music I would.
My children will not hear your music if possible. I have already started my two older sons on James Brown to teach them the value of funk. You can go screw.
I hope more people take this tact and you get no further money until you find your way back into the fold. Stop preaching about love you d*&k. No one buys your BS.

Radiohead – In Rainbows

11/09/2008 Leave a comment

I am a big Radiohead fan.
This is not an “I hate Radiohead thing
What I hate is the retarded publicity around their album and the RIAA props swooshing round it.
A “study” showed that 60 someodd% of people opted for the downloaded version of the new, and I must say BRILLIANT, album.
Yes. I am, honestly, surprised it was not more.
Well. If you download it you can choose NOT to pay for it. If you choose the “Diskbox” version you will not get it until AFTER December third. It will also COST YOU FORTY STERLING!.
Folks: 40.00 British Pounds = 84.51 U.S. Dollars.
Good (*&$)# LORD!. I love Radiohead but I don’t &*$(*&% love them that much.
60 someodd% of the people chose to download it and the 40 someodd% that paid MORE than made up for it! They don’t TELL you that part.

Things to do with a Zombie

01/31/2008 Leave a comment

I am a big White Zombie fan….
Well that is not entirely true.
Most of their music is crap.
Two of their albums are pure genius.
La Sexorcisto: Devil Music Vol.1 being the pinnacle of their achievment….IMNSHO.
It is in my top ten fave albums of all time and has been since I first heard it so many years ago.
This is so true that my Ork army is ‘SoulKrusherZ’ and most of the units/bosses are named from that song if not the LSDMV1 album as well as the follow up Astro Creep.
This brings me to my next point.
Just how many times does Rob say Yeah!
Well…..It got me wondering once so I counted in one song: Soulcrusher (my absolute favorite).
He says yeah! 10 times in Soulcrusher.
I have a 45minute to hour drive each way to work so I took it upon myself to count over a couple 3 days:
Songs From LSDMV1:

(Keep in mind this is SONGS. Not the little radio edit filler)

Welcome to the Planet MotherBleeper/Psychoholic Slag: 7

ThunderKiss ’65: 13

Black Sunshine: 18

Soulcrusher: 10

Cosmic Monsters Inc: 9

Spiderbaby (yeah yeah yeah) : an ironic 8 (you would have thought more given the title)

I am Legend: 9

Thrust: 12

Grindhouse a go-go: This is a toss up in my mind. It is either 8 or 32 depending on how you count it. At number 7 they echoplex his vocal on the YEAH! 24 times. now a regular echo might net you two times and I did not count that as I did not count obviously layered effects. This goes as 8/32

Starface: 9

Warp Asylum: This surprised me. I thought this would be the least. Came in at 8

So we have a total of 111/135
An average of 10/12 times per track of SONG.

How lame is my drive home?

Band of Horses

01/28/2008 Leave a comment

This is the best new band I have heard in awhile.
New to me anyhow. Apparently they have been a round for a bit and escaped my notice. The sound is like they are channeling late 80s drone with a melodic hook not seen then.
They will then switch to aching, beautiful acoustic or slow numbers that just fill you up.
Ben Bridwells vocal is a light crystal tone that soars above and comes back to earth to pierce you with its vibrant beautiful sadness.
In case you were unclear….
I love this album.
I love this band.
I am furious there is not more music by them to consume. Shoegazing awesomeness.

I caught them on one of my On-Demand channels on Cox cable (the ‘I Hate’ is silent)
The video for ‘Is There a Ghost’ is kind of ‘meh’ but the music……
The music was great enough for me to seek out their album to give it the full taste.
It has been on repeat for awhile now with no end in sight.
For a day filled with Centaur, Hum, Ryan Adams, Brant Bjork, James F***ing Brown, White Zombie, White Stripes, or the Black Crowes that is saying a LOT.
The album is Cease to Begin by Band of Horses and is available from subpop.
