gareth wrote this on thread Just Blaze on board I Love Music on 30-Nov-2001

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

But all tickets are that ticket, unless/until they take explicitly take the position AGAINST being that ticket as a signature issue. That's what it means for white supremacy to be the default setting. That's why the term "anti-racism" is purposefully different from "not racist," because it has to be intentional or else things fall back to status quo, which is that black lives matter less.

I randomly remembered that I'd tweeted at the OED about this, and so it just occurred to me to check to see whether they'd done anything with it. So maybe it's been in there for a while. In any case, what a delight.

Only times I had something to do with them, theyve tried to beat me up, shoot in my direction (pretty close, but only one time) or arrest me. Im glad its in the past. But still, whenever I see a cop I react the same way as when I see a skinhead; with disgust. ACAB, for sure..

Dates back to the 1920s though - when there was no ILX, or even Belle & Sebastian forums.

aged 7 or 8 i remember my dad singing "all coppers are bastards" to the tune of the line "pop does the weasel" when he didn't know i could hear him -- and then (to my mum's tremendous glee) having to explain to me what it means, why someone would say it, and finally why "bastard" is a bad word that it isn't polite to use

"A million times more greasy than they actually are": are you suggesting some alien-derived mind control which actually makes crisps seem greasier than necessary to us, allowing a reduction in the use of expensive-but-tasty grease in the manufacture of our favourite potato based snack?
And search: bags of those fishy old Scampi Fries containing more than 5 fries. And destroy: Cheese Moments, which surely contain the most repulsive cheese-like substance ever to have been imported from space? Some competition here, I know.

On admission I will admit to having put a Scampi Fry between two Bacon Fries and eaten it like a very small sandwich.

Bob Seger is awesome. Anita Baker? What would anyone have against Anita Baker? She is awesome.
You have to remove "Wonderful, Tonight" and most other classics because I would imagine _someone_ on ILM will be down. And England Dan and JFC are also klassic. Love Is The Answer, indeed.

I would take aim on Hootie or Spin Doctors [Little Miss Can't Be Wrong, anyone?] for ILM most-hated. Semisonic's closing time would be my guess...

BUT I was thinking of Proud To Be An American this morning. I saw it on a bumper sticker and I'm certainly NOT, so... yes... mr. g-wood in tha funkee hiz-ouse.

two months pass...

Surprised this hasn't been posted here before:

Kerry's my guy for now, and I don't think that will change though I like him less personally the more I read about him.
I like Dean (especially) and Edwards (somewhat), but don't think either has enough experience. Gary Hart intrigues me, but I think he's running for a position of influence, not President, and I'm not sure he'd be a good one. Lieberman and Gephardt are definitely qualified, but I have substantive problems with both, and Gephardt is unelectable. Maybe Lieberman too.

Clinton, writ large, can run of course. Biden would be very interesting.

I will vote for whomever is the nominee, though.
