i see jaymc nominated this terrible digitalism track

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

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?

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.

Αλλού means 'elsewhere'

also ordered this CD

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.

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

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.

Azzido Da Bass is 90s

Chewshabadoo, Thursday, 10 May 2012 18:40 (2 years ago) Permalink

I love 'Barbara Morgenstern', but it's not really danceable is it? Maybe I'm wrong. Don't want to open up that debate again though!

Chewshabadoo, Thursday, 10 May 2012 18:42 (2 years ago) Permalink

Exactly my thoughts on Barbara Morgan's turn too.

btw didn't i braek ur heart (NickB), Thursday, 10 May 2012 18:46 (2 years ago) Permalink

ok i'll get those when i get back from lunch

the late great, Thursday, 10 May 2012 19:15 (2 years ago) Permalink

done, done and done

the late great, Thursday, 10 May 2012 20:35 (2 years ago) Permalink

barbara morgenstern fans feel free to make a case for re-inclusion

the late great, Thursday, 10 May 2012 20:41 (2 years ago) Permalink

Well, there's plenty of other stuff on the list that's not danceable: Deepchord, Voices from the Lake, Fever Ray, The Fires of Ork, Panda Bear, Pole, etc. So if you want to remove Barbara Panther, you should remove all those others too.

Tuomas, Thursday, 10 May 2012 21:41 (2 years ago) Permalink

ok tuomas i removed fever ray, fires of ork, panda bear and pole

motion to remove deepchord and vftl rejected

anything else you want removed?

the late great, Thursday, 10 May 2012 22:03 (2 years ago) Permalink

motion to remove deepchord and vftl rejected

Why? They aren't any more danceable than the Barbara Morgenstern tracks I nominated.

Tuomas, Thursday, 10 May 2012 22:05 (2 years ago) Permalink

why? common sense, that's why.

now use those down votes sparingly tuomas, i'm going to weigh any other requests you have very carefully, four down votes is a hell of a lot more than i intend to give anyone else, so consider yourself lucky.

the late great, Thursday, 10 May 2012 22:07 (2 years ago) Permalink

What "common sense"? What does that even mean?

Tuomas, Thursday, 10 May 2012 22:10 (2 years ago) Permalink

we already know you don't know, tuomas, don't beat a dead horse

the late great, Thursday, 10 May 2012 22:11 (2 years ago) Permalink

FWIW, I'm not for removing anything from the list; I don't really like the idea that this poll should correspond to a specific aesthetic of electronic music that's defined by the bobbins crew, and that stuff that's outside this aesthetic gets removed, even though people had nominated those tunes.

Tuomas, Thursday, 10 May 2012 22:14 (2 years ago) Permalink

well, that's going to happen anyway based on the voting, isn't it?

anyway, if you don't like it, don't vote, feel free to organize a boycott, etc

or come up w/ a better argument than finger-pointing for why an artist pitchfork described as one of the leading exponents of the "synthification of indie pop" should be included in the poll

the late great, Thursday, 10 May 2012 22:18 (2 years ago) Permalink

tell you what tuomas, on the off-chance that i'm being unfair to you (because your faux-naif posting style irritates me) i'm going to add morgenstern back to the list

BUT i'm NOT going to add the ones you x'd out back to the list ... don't know how you do it in finland, but in america we hardmen choose our words carefully.

let that be a lesson to you

>:-(
