Rob, you're acting just like the "shit-smeared ayatollah of Iran", except that it's in a smaller scale, that you don't rule a country and ain't got any power on here. Wishing to ban a whole culture on the basis that you don't like it.

Alright, but that does not mean everyone should enjoy every musical genre, or does it?

Techno, I think it sucks, and it's not music designed to be listened to, but to make people dance, so they can focus on what happens on the dance floor without being distracted by the music. (Autechre doesn't fit in the category imo)

I didn't say everyone should enjoy every musical genre. But to diss up a whole genre (in that case, any music created with electronic instruments!), say your favorite music is superior, and saying a board has gone to shit because some people talk about music you don't like is plain ridiculous and sheer stupidity.

I totally disagree with your point of view on techno music - I can listen to 4 to the floor EQ'd techno without dancing to it -, but at least you admit it's subjective and don't pretend everyone should stop talking about techno because of this.

I refuse to understand that my obsessions are not all of yours.

Yes but, this is a forum about SY, a VERY guitar-oriented band, and still you can find people here who dislike Daydream Nation, or anything else the band did record.
So why wouldn't electronic music be criticized, in that regard?

Sure. I like some electronic music myself.
But maybe you'll admit that there's a lot of dull techno (listen to 'fréquence gay'!)

so many touchy people.

the whole "too many people talkin bout techno" was a JOKE! I am known for my dislike of the techno, and seeing the title of the thread....

guess people just not feelin the anti-techno humor

OK. I will switch to anti-Justin Bieber. Easy! we all agree on that right? ha ha

and so what if I hate an entire genre? Big fucking deal.

genre's hated by rob I


champagne music
techno (I know it is not really a genre, so chills)
slow jams (Rhythm & bullshit)
ambient
polka
easy listening
smooth jazz
pop punk, or more specifically punky pop.
light opera
reggaeton

etc etc

if we were all to list the genres we do not enjoy it would lead to a cataclysm seeing as how touchy people are about their personal faves.


I am the hugest sonic youth fanatic, and daydream antion is my masterpiece for living, the only album I would take to a desert island if I had to pick, but I can understand why someone would have a difering opinion./

so many people post on here about how that album is boring to them. doesn't upset me (I don;t agree of course),

I think the whole point of this forum is to bring together disparate minds with dispaarte tastes who just so happen to overlap when it comes to sonic youth.

there are peopel on this board tha really do not like sonic youth's studio albums preferring the severity of their SYR series. There are people here who only like the first 6 LP's. It takes all kinds, yes, even people who HATE techno music.

yes, things fall apart and will never stop doing that.

funny thing, you've managed to stir some controversy & get more people to post. good strategy! i'd rep you if i could, but it appears i'm out of ammunition.

some of the things you say i think are right, but i don't get your hate for satana-- you may not like how she demands attention (who here doesn't, in one way or another, for their own reasons), but she hasn't done you any harm, has she? i like the brat for her shitkicking attitude, that's why i ask.

and amerikangod, ok, he says the same things over and over, and his humor might not be agreeable to all, but even in his repetitive gimmick he can be funny because of his rhethorical skills. and yes, flotters tends to repeat things that make you impatient-- but if people are not harming you, why not skip ahead and let them live?

then again, people took offense at your thread and that got them posting-- good job! 100+ posts less than 24 hours? that hasn't happened here in ages.
I don't hate anyone on this or any forum. I make a very good internet impersonation of one who does, though, and mainly to entartain myself when I don't have anything better to do. Messing around with the medium and stuff.

Because Sonic Youth is one band, while electronic music is a whole culture (or rather, actually, many different cultures). You may criticize, I don't know, fidget house, or dubstep, or minimal techno, I don't know, whatever your taste is. But criticizing any music made with electronic instruments? Ridiculous.

In my opinion there is much more dull rock music than dull techno. And dull rock is REALLY, REALLY dull, to the point that it makes you want to puke, while you can often forget the super shit aspects of stupid techno tunes and still have fun - I did not say ALWAYS.

fuck all techno.


there you have it

get a grip on it

so fucking WHAT?

a person who is a righteous follower of electronic music and hates all forms of blues-based rock is entitled to say he thinks "ROCK SUCKS"

I am entitled to think TECHNO SUCKS.

I bolded and enlarged the exact part of yr statement that you should take into consideration when deciding to berate someone for thinking the exact same thing but about your chosen genre.
