flag them again!

2) any of these are terrible gay homo awful NON-house music and should be removed from ballet for indie-friendliness

― the late great

House music is very rooted in gay culture so I don't think starting the poll by using homo and gay as derogatory terms is adequate.

Error in:

boy 8 - bit

It should read: Boy 8 Bit - Suspense is Killing Me

as a derogatory gay i find 'gay culture' more derogatory than any joke the lovely late great makes. i didn't realize we could flag tracks from the poll, i was just talking about the spotify playlist linked to above, which is mostly great.

just to make things clear

"terrible gay homo awful house music"

^^ is a meme from past dance threads, i think it was something ronan first said which then got picked up by others, cf

awful gay, political deep house music.

from the dj sprinkles thread

no homophobia intended, sorry if anyone not in on the joke was offended

the late great, Wednesday, 9 May 2012 20:32 (2 years ago) Permalink

now i am not sure if moka was in on the joke or not but just in case anyone is lurking, some of my best friends are gay

the late great, Wednesday, 9 May 2012 20:35 (2 years ago) Permalink

The meme actually came from Chaki's putdown of house music in some unrelated post.

Tuomas, Wednesday, 9 May 2012 20:40 (2 years ago) Permalink

ah yes

passion (sometimes misinterpreted as crankiness) is what makes life worth living. without it you are a sting fan with milquetoast posting style or end up listening to gay, awful, horrible, house music all the time.

I was joking. I suck at textual humor.

Moka, Wednesday, 9 May 2012 20:43 (2 years ago) Permalink

50 is too few options btw, I ended up with a 160 song shortlist. Ballot complete and sent.

Moka, Wednesday, 9 May 2012 20:44 (2 years ago) Permalink

Yeah, I nommed a Greek house tune by Αλλού, it's a collab between Savvas Ysatis and some other guy, and it's really dope (basically these half-spoken, half sung, kinda sleazy sounding vocals on top of deep and minimalist house beat). I used the Greeks letter because I don't how to translitterate them, the record sleeve has only Greek text. Here's Discogs link to the album, the track is called Όνειρα. Maybe someone here knows how to write it in Western alphabet?

― Tuomas, Tuesday, May 8, 2012 9:25 PM (Yesterday)

Kind've curious to hear this, Tuomas - is it on YouTube, or could you upload it to YT? Couldn't find it, but my Greek is about as good as you'd expect for someone from NZ.

I just realized I actually nominated the wrong Αλλού track, as I nommed it without listening to the album. The Late Great, can you change my nomination from "Αλλού - Όνειρα" to "Αλλού - Γυμνή Φωτογραφία". Thanks! (Not that I think many people are gonna vote for it, but just to be sure.)

Etc, I don't have a Youtube account, but you can find the track here. (That's the actual track I meant to nominate, not the wrong one.)

Moka, Wednesday, 9 May 2012 21:01 (2 years ago) Permalink

i see jaymc nominated this terrible digitalism track

Haha, I was actually surprised that it didn't get any blowback earlier.

Carrie Antwoord (jaymc), Wednesday, 9 May 2012 21:01 (2 years ago) Permalink

Thanks Tuomas. I just bought that Αλλού CD..

mmmm, Wednesday, 9 May 2012 21:24 (2 years ago) Permalink

ok cool, all of the things people have pointed out have been fixed (except removing bros and digitalism)

thanks all for your help

three ballots are in - everyone ranked theirs 1-50, i assume?

the late great, Wednesday, 9 May 2012 21:48 (2 years ago) Permalink

Thanks Tuomas. I just bought that Αλλού CD..

Not a bad choice! The tracks are kinda samey (except for two that have a more electro/hip hop flavour), but the vibe is rather unique, and if you like that vibe, the album's consistently good.

Tuomas, Wednesday, 9 May 2012 21:55 (2 years ago) Permalink

Yeah mine are ranked at least the top 20 are the rest were picked more randomly. There's 7 of pattern's votes in mine. 22 in my shortlist.

Moka, Wednesday, 9 May 2012 23:39 (2 years ago) Permalink

Αλλού means 'elsewhere'

also ordered this CD

Crackle Box, Thursday, 10 May 2012 10:48 (2 years ago) Permalink

will do my ballot this afternoon, it's so grey and shitty here i fear everything i vote for will have (superpitcher remix) in brackets after it

Crackle Box, Thursday, 10 May 2012 10:49 (2 years ago) Permalink

yo this better not be some more daft punk bullshit

Now that I've posted my awful gay homo house list the rest of you are free to vote for that really real shit.

pattern loader, Thursday, 10 May 2012 12:38 (2 years ago) Permalink

I want to see nothing that wasn't made by a black man in Detroit or Chicago in the Top 20 people.

You didn't vote for any awful gay homo house though.

Shame on you.

Tim F, Thursday, 10 May 2012 12:41 (2 years ago) Permalink

Whoa, when I nominated that Αλλού track, I didn't expect people would actually get interested in the record. That's great! :)

Tuomas, Thursday, 10 May 2012 12:50 (2 years ago) Permalink

X-post But, but Ewan Pearson! And DJ Sprinkles!

Sigh, people around here have very high standards.

pattern loader, Thursday, 10 May 2012 12:57 (2 years ago) Permalink

And Felix Da Housecat!

I admit I didn't vote for any Freemason's remixes but I did my best.

pattern loader, Thursday, 10 May 2012 12:59 (2 years ago) Permalink

Which of awful, gay and/or homo is ewan pearson?

Tim F, Thursday, 10 May 2012 13:06 (2 years ago) Permalink

I don't know I'm not speculating about the man's sexuality, but that Goldfrapp remix is not terribly hetero.

pattern loader, Thursday, 10 May 2012 13:08 (2 years ago) Permalink

Perhaps it's DJ Naughty's contribution to it, I believe he had co-writing credit on that one.

pattern loader, Thursday, 10 May 2012 13:10 (2 years ago) Permalink

Trust DJ Naughty.

Tim F, Thursday, 10 May 2012 13:26 (2 years ago) Permalink

Somewhere within me the nerdy whiteboy Moodymann fan is in a deadly struggle against the Euro electrohouse loving DJ.

Chinbeard vs. body wax? Truly an epic struggle.

pattern loader, Thursday, 10 May 2012 13:35 (2 years ago) Permalink

If you were truly an awful gay homo you would know that you can have both a chinbeard and a body wax.

Tim F, Thursday, 10 May 2012 13:41 (2 years ago) Permalink

Sorry, I'm being distracted by Tuomas' Greek thing at the moment. And I'll consider my awful gay homo status revoked.

I've got a lot of High NRG I need to sell, anybody want my Patrick Cowley records?

pattern loader, Thursday, 10 May 2012 13:52 (2 years ago) Permalink

I need to go to sleep, please carry on.

pattern loader, Thursday, 10 May 2012 13:57 (2 years ago) Permalink

can't stand terre sprinkles so i intentionally defaced one of his entries

the late great, Thursday, 10 May 2012 14:36 (2 years ago) Permalink

When you move on to a new thread, can you put a link on the old thread (as I've just done)? Some of us just check bookmarked threads 90% of the time, rather than scanning all the new answers. Cheers.
