Timbaland and The Neptunes feature pretty big on ILM, but what do people think of Just Blaze (and indeed, Kanye West)?

i love the way the Blueprint sort of steps back, for the most part, from the Tim aesthetic, into this histrionic, even classicist, symphonic soul vibe. it should sound backward looking but it seemed to suit what Jay is saying ("i'm looking past you"). I only really know of Just Blaze because of The Blueprint, and also the last Beanie Sigel album (those last 3 tracks would have been a credit to the Blueprint, they just as good, no?)

so, forgive my ignorance, but what else have JB and KW done, and how long have they been doing stuff in this style (have they always been like this, or is this like a new direction). Why do they get less props than Tim/Neptunes (i imagine it is because Tim/Neptunes are more forward looking and 'sonically inventive'?)

Album charts: Dido (imminently to be done on Naked Maja) still at #1, Strokes in at #2 same as last time. Two new entries for Rod the Sod; Songs By Old People Vol 2 in at #4, early Rod/Faces Changing Faces 2CD comp in at #13. Other greatest hits compilations entering: Texas (5), Erasure (15), Suede (31). Kish Kash enters at #17. Jamie Cullum, who'll probably end up outselling every one of these albums, in at #22. Lower down: Myleene Klass (32), Joe Strummer (50) and Amy Winehouse (60).

Slimzee, Dizzee Rascal and Rolldeep Cru: wrestling UKG from the grubby Cristal staind mitts of So Solid et al, these and a slew of underground pirate operating dudes from all over London are making music ostensibly designed to dance to but more suited to mugging old ladies in Holloway. Abrasive, aggresive, alkaline and lots of other adjectives starting with 'A' (most importantly, ACE) the beats are more akin to neptunes productions like 'Grindin'; really minimal with blooping bass hiccups and industrial synthetic bells. Dizzee Rascal is 19 and arguably one of the finest mc's in london right now (rolldeep also have a 14 year old mc) his seminal release to date is 'I Love You' which you may've heard already... basically, sit by your radio tonight and flick through the original pirate material until you find the rolldeep show, it will blow your head off.

I think it's a precarious situtaion. A lot of his GOP support is of the reluctant 'tow the party line' variety (unlike, say Obama, whose fans seem determined to make this election the second coming of Beatlemania). So, on the one hand, he'd be wise to choose someone who represents a more traditionally conservative ideology. Huckabee or Romney would be the obvious (ie WRONG) choices in this regard.

However, he stands to lose the moderates and independents he's been courting since day one if he brings in some hardliner. I think he's acutrely aware of all this.

If he wants my vote he'll have to choose smart, sexy libertarian Sarah Palin.

They are a mixed bag live. Opening for Sonic Youth recently and for Bobby Conn last year (?) they were great, powerful noisy stuff. The two other times I saw them they seemed a little directionless and were boring. And besides, the one time they had to play after the Animal Collective at a gallery in Detroit and they couldn't come anywhere near the genius of those guys that night. Seen them in various solo set-ups and it was mixed as well.

It's one of my favourite albums of the year, and I think Make You Feel That Way is an extraordinarily beautiful track. And fuck trying to guess what will stand the test of time, I just like it because it sounds good to me now, and I don't think I can guess what will last anyway. Remember John Peel telling Tony Blackburn in the late '60s that Peel's favourites like Iron Butterfly and It's A Beautiful Day would be universally revered in the future while Blackburn's favourites like Marvin Gaye and Smokey Robinson would be contemptuously forgotten.

And fuck all this macho nonsense about not wanting to admit to liking it because it isn't all hard and aggressive. I like much softer stuff than this! And Nabisco is OTM (thanks to Graham's 'while you were writing...' feature).

All other donut shops are toast once Tim Horton's creeps in. They're on every corner here - WORSE THAN STARBUCKS - sometimes they put one on both sides of the street so that you don't have to go to the 'trouble' of turning across the traffic.
About that fast food smell - McDonald's is the worst for that. It's the beef flavouring that they put into the oil (to make the taste consistent with when the fries were done in beef tallow) - blearghhh. During my fast food tour of duty I was a cook for Arthur Treacher's Fish and Chips. Now the smell of fried fish is *so* lovely let me tell you...

Subway's veggie and cheese subs rock - especially now that they've added all those fancy ass new breads. Dairy Queen, ironically, makes the best cheeseburgers. A&W is a close second. Harvey's Hamburgers aren't - but hey, if you like soy. Licks is good but weird and expensive.

I also like that Wendy's spicy chicken sandwich. Speaking of spicy chicken - has anyone else ever had a Nando's chicken sandwich? Oh so yummy! Unfortunately, all known outlets here appear to have closed.

Actually quantizing something happens whenever a signal goes from analog to d - to digitize it means you have to turn it into a number, or a quantity, thus the term.

Cher's voice was recorded and then adjusted with tuning plugins for Pro Tools - Autotune, which you can hear on a ton of studio records nowadays (Linkin Park anyone?) forces notes to adhere to a pitch-perfect steady tone, which kind of makes a voice sound vocoderish, and other plugins which allow for pitch to be transposed an octave or two without losing too much of its timbre.

Matt Maxwell is right about the method except I'm not so sure about the 'on-the-fly' part.

I hate Pro Tools plugins.

The Ramones comparison is apt, to be sure, but I feel that all the Bon-era stuff and the first couple of Brian Johnson albums belong in every home. Also, the bottle opener key chain that came with the box-set has proven incredibly useful over the years.

I didn't like the hype around the Strokes for a couple of months and I let that colour my perception of the band. I was wrong - started liking them a bit after "Hard To Explain" came out, bought the album rather nervously and immediately enjoyed it. I'm sorry to break up the ILM consensus, not that there was one.

The reason FT's talking about them now is that all the hype and anti- hype about the Strokes was saying basically the same things and that wasn't what I was hearing on the record, so I thought I might as well write about that.

I'm always glad to see the return of Nick's "internet hardman" persona, too.

OTM. I listened without prejudice and I came away praying for the day when Basement Jaxx are producing popular teen idols and Richard X's girl group are up and running to happen really bloody soon.

Indeed, the main problem for me here is confusing lighthearted with lightweight. The airy way the song carries itself around screams of desperate grabs at SAW-type instant memorableness and the groove is...ordinary. You could tell me Hilary Duff sang this, or maybe her sister, for her latest movie, and I'd probably believe you for a sec - and no, that's not a compliment. 5/10

1 month passes...

There was very little music written exclusively for flute as a solo instrument until Debussy's Syrinx. Many think Syrinx is about Pan chasing Syrinx...but in fact the piece was written for a play. It was performed at then end of Mourey's play, Psyche, and the only piece of music in this play (although it originally was intended that more should happen). So Syrinx was a commissioned piece by Mourey. The flute was laid alongside pan in the last scene as he dies. A short line was read, and then the piece was played offstage, originally debuted by Louis Fleury Dec. 1, 1913. Syrinx is the name of the woman that Pan (half man/half goat) chased through the woods in pursuit of her (she was completely and utterly disgusted by this half beast who lusted after her), and she came to the river begging the nymphs to assist her, and they allowed her to be disguised as a reed. Unfortunately Pan plucked the reed and whittled an instrument, the pan pipes, if you will, out of this reed. The original title which is still on the sheet music is, is La Flute de Pan (the flute of pan)....which fits the play by Mourey.....Debussy did not think of this piece nor his sound ideas as "impressionistic" but rather he called them an "arabesque".....

The deal is, Debussy opened the door for solo flute works. Edgar Varese walked through that door, ahead of his time. Trained as an engineer he was very excited by new sounds....attempting to transcend city sounds into new ideas of dissonance and consonance and such. One must recall, that cities were being built, new ideas of construction and the skyscraper came into being. To this end, he explored the full range of acoustic instrument preferring not to reinvent the wheel, theoretically speaking. Even in school, he chose not to follow the rules of theory to compose. He was well liked, and knew everyone of his time. Density 21.5 was also a commissioned piece: George Barerres (sp?) requested he compose it for the inauguration of the Platinum flute at the 1938 (I think was the year) World's Fair. The title is derived from the density of platinum; however, recent study shows that the density is actually something like 21.53 (or whatever...another digit) and Varese wanted the title corrected, but it never took. The piece is about exploring acoustically electronic sounds. Varese is considered the 'Father of Electronic Music.' Varese was french born but spent most of his adult life in America. He knew, among other famous personalities such as Picasso, Anais Nin, who wrote in her 3rd diary (if memory serves) around page 140 or so where she quotes him in the peak of his depression something to the effect of "America does not like my music...." After Density, Varese really fell into quite a funk and didn't compose a thing!

His house was quite interesting with all kinds of instruments donated to him by friends. It wasn't until the late 50s that he received his first anonymous donation of some electronic equipment from Ampex Corporation in Redwood City, California, USA. He was ecstatic. He also worked with Phillips Corp. and he was at several other world fairs. Philips pulled him out of retirement, for all intense purposes, in his 70s! People had forgotten he was still alive.

Density 21.5 explored the hemiola (3 notes evenly distributed against 2 beats), the triplet, duples (8th notes), and the idea of dramatic expression wherein, I sense, the loud/soft dynamic markings are not so much about a "classical" creation of volume, rather about an "electric" sound of wooshing or leaning in and out, and sometimes suddenly the volume is turned up. This piece explores the complete range of the flute, from middle C to D4....although there are a few other 4th octave notes the flute can play.

Between Debussy & Varese, the literature for solo flute was opened widely between these 2 efforts, and other pieces are in the fore as pieces to play for solo flute, Jolivet....Honegger.....and much more. Density isn't played publicly as much anymore, which is sad. It's a piece you either love or hate, generally....I, as a flutist, like it very much because it feels like a whole new vocabulary of notes.

Many up & coming flutists tend to not play this piece accurately, ignoring the rhythms at times, playing parts too fast, not understanding the "electric" nature of the piece.

Varese is a very interesting personality to me. He was clearly an intelligent and passionate man. I have records of his with brass, percussion and other instruments. It takes a bit of getting used to, and for those who are more major/minor oriented, this music is disturbing and aggressive and senseless. However, as a musician, his music is difficult to play effectively, requires volumes of air, control and thinking your way through the story, and knowledge of one's instrument.

I am pleased to say that I am lucky in that I've been asked to play these 2 pieces back to back at a modern music concert tomorrow, and I chose them as contrasting pieces of the 20th century in the flute repertoire, the Syrinx being rather melodic and somewhat haunting and the story line quite clear and the colors expressive versus the angularity, the wide intervals, the intensity of the dramatic dynamic markings, the key clicks (which should sound like a cork popping), and not rushing through the rests. Syrinx keeps that Bb coming back, so having a steady Bb every time one arrives at it is important. The section on the second page is clearly about modes and many flub this section (Bb/B/Db/Ebb....). Varese is about the rhythmic structure, that hemiola keeps coming back and the last note of these always gets short shrift unless well practiced....the F/E/F# figure (2 16ths/8th notes into a tie....)

Both Debussy & Varese were also interested in expanding the range of individual instruments.....

In this way, both Debussy & Varese contributed greatly to pulling the flute out of the orchestra and into a place in its own right, and other composers followed suit exploring yet further the timbre of this instrument, changing it from its perception of something ethereal and uplifting to being nearly brassy and brash, with a voice of its own.

hmm. if you look back, what i said is not "accept happyslapping" but "accept the increased probability of it happening in the city". small difference, but important.

society is in a bit of a mess (nothing new there). i believe the onus is on all of us - individuals, the "state", schools, places of employment, whatever - to do whatever we can to improve things. this isn't easy, and what you say in your last post is absolutely right: it's just that when you say "POLITICS" (yr caps) it all sounds a little reductionist, like you're just waiting for someone else to do all the hard work. i'm not accusing you personally of doing that: i'm sure you'd agree, however, it does seem to be many people's modus operandi.

christ, i could do more. a lot more. and i know i should.

what riled me originally is what i perceived in some posts as an assumption that happyslappers are just this absolute aberration; that they're a tiny number of bad apples and that once we've rounded them up and shot them all, we'll be fine. what i'm suggesting instead is that instead of condemning, we - as a "society", whatever the fuck that might be - try to understand why a small but significant number of young people do this kind of thing. basically: what is society (that word again) doing to these people to turn them into such disenfranchised, antisocial, fucked-up pieces of shit?

remember when john major came out with "understand less, condemn more"? that was proof incarnate that he was a total cunt. i was being overly glib above when i said we shouldn't condemn/blame the individual: but FFS, if we don't try to work out WHY this is happening, we're all fucked.

Gov. Bush & his mystical buddy

After more than an hour of solemn ceremony naming Rep. Marco Rubio, R-West Miami, as the 2007-08 House speaker, Gov. Jeb Bush stepped to the podium in the House chamber last week and told a short story about "unleashing Chang," his "mystical warrior" friend.

Here are Bush's words, spoken before hundreds of lawmakers and politicians:
''Chang is a mystical warrior. Chang is somebody who believes in conservative principles, believes in entrepreneurial capitalism, believes in moral values that underpin a free society.

''I rely on Chang with great regularity in my public life. He has been by my side and sometimes I let him down. But Chang, this mystical warrior, has never let me down.''

Bush then unsheathed a golden sword and gave it to Rubio as a gift.

''I'm going to bestow to you the sword of a great conservative warrior,'' he said, as the crowd roared.

The crowd, however, could be excused for not understanding Bush's enigmatic foray into the realm of Eastern mysticism.

We're here to help.

In a 1989 Washington Post article on the politics of tennis, former President George Bush was quoted as threatening to ''unleash Chang'' as a means of intimidating other players.

The saying was apparently quite popular with Gov. Bush's father, and referred to a legendary warrior named Chang who was called upon to settle political disputes in Chinese dynasties of yore.

The phrase has evolved, under Gov. Jeb Bush's use, to mean the need to fix conflicts or disagreements over an issue. Faced with a stalemate, the governor apparently "unleashes Chang" as a rhetorical device, signaling it's time to stop arguing and start agreeing.

No word on if Rubio will unleash Chang, or the sword, as he faces squabbles in the future.

“These guys [newly elected Tea Party candidates]” are going to force Romney to the right,” said Andrea Shell, a spokeswoman for Tea Party group Freedom Works. “That is our entire mission.”…

“If we can elect a really conservative House and Senate that will force Romney to go along with our bold conservative agenda,” Shell said. “He’s going to have to really, really go to the right. He’ll be working with guys in the House and Senate. He won’t be able to get away with too many middle of the road policies, especially on things like the deficit.”…

“It’s not going to be a Romney driven presidency,” Norman Orenstein, a researcher at the conservative think tank AEI recently told ABC News. “It’s going to be a Congressional, conservative, Republican driven presidency from Congress.”

idk, there's a certain honor in being an early adopter of sa/4chan/reddit/imgur. I feel like those gentlemen will all have some interesting stories to tell their grandkids about the heyday of internet trash culture ("believe it or not, newfags, there was a time when IT IS A MYSTERY truly was a mystery, and we would spend hours...")

I dislike Paris Hilton as much as the next person, but any guy here who says he wouldn't hit it it given the chance, especially if they were drunk, is lying. I don't think that she's particularly good-looking, but I definitely wouldn't kick her out of bed. I wouldn't even care if she answered the phone during. It might turn out to be Kim Kardashian, which would be hot.

Violence Reverses Gains In Iraq.

Iraqi security officials say al Qaeda-linked fighters from the militant group Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham, or ISIS, are moving aggressively to re-establish a base of operations in Anbar province, the stronghold of the Sunni insurgency during the U.S.-led war.

If the extremists succeed, they would undo one of the hardest-fought gains of U.S. forces and their Iraqi allies. By the time of the U.S. pullout at the end of 2011, the insurgency had been significantly weakened, in large part by a U.S. alliance with moderate Sunni tribesmen.
