How hot is Dominique Leone in person?

I'm a big fan of Leone's pitchforkmedia.com reviews, as well as her online presence on the threads here (see chords -> colors piece here).

I must know if the beauty of her virtual world prose is an indicator of her real world persona, or if her online alter-ego belies a very different person!

by the way, dominique, that color/chords thing you have is called synaesthesia (if you haven't already learned this in the two years since that thread) -- that is, if the colors/sounds are involuntarily linked in your mind and you always see the same colors and shapes with the same absolute pitches (therefore you also have absolute pitch). fascinating condition, i'm very envious of people who have it. you can read about it here.

if you're just asking about what you vaguely think of when you hear those chords then you're just like the rest of us, ie, projecting!

Well, that's a disappointment. I'm new to this msg board, so I guess it's forgivable since I've mostly read pitchfork and hoped that at least one of them was a girl....

does the idea of a female pitchfork writer make you horny? like a girl who knows and loves music AND writes about it. but she's a girl. and maybe she's pretty. and female. and maybe she knows more than you do. and she's got boobies.

does the idea of a male ILM poster posting about getting off on the idea of female music writers make you irritated and depressed? maybe he's a dork. and maybe he knows less than you do. and maybe he needs an attitude adjustment. (preferably a swift kick to the groin.)

no, it's just a classic case of seeking out an idealized version of oneself in form of what one is sexually attracted to -- which is lame.

2. j3ss harvell’s Wolfgang Voight review is the #1 review of the day and gets an 8.5 Best New Review — found it really frank and conversational, it reads like she sat down with us to try to explain why she couldn’t get into the new Wolfgang Voight record, but it’s respectful and avoids what i can imagine was a strong temptation to dismiss the fuck out of this record, which she makes sound wildly unappetizing

Dominique Leone getting in the paper is awesome and I'm all for it, but "what's new about his achievement is that he took Reich's piece and remixed it" seems a slightly weak angle, given that there have already been 2 pretty high-profile "Reich Remixed" compilations

anyhow, that doesn't matter - nice bit of publicity, hope it leads to some new ears listening to Dominique (Reich too, for that matter), look forward to hearing the remix

In retrospect it feels like Dominque was the only writer on earth who treated "V∞redoms" like an actual thing

oh god this thread again.

really? They were definitely going by that at shows for maybe 10 years or so after VCN. They never released anything as Voredoms afaik, but I always figured that was due more to publishing than anything.

yeah, iirc Eye made a big deal about the idea of the band being a dual turntable (which I always took as the meaning of the ∞ symbol). And to me, anything made w/the Eye + drummers formation = V∞redoms. Probably doesn't matter of course.
