People wasted no time; love it!
Question (from Sean): “How many feathers are on a Perdue chicken?”
Answer: I’ll get to that once I figure out how many times the Batmobile caught a flat.
Question (from Jay Yo): “Any interest in the large influx of new UK house/bass/dubstep talent of recent years? Artists, labels, sounds that piquÃ© your interest?”
Answer: The simple response to the first question is: no (thereby making the second question besides the point).
The truth is – as this site is evidence of – I’ve never gotten into most forms of contemporary electronic dance music. It’s not for any real reason besides time: learning any new genre takes a great deal of time and I’d rather spend that time digging deeper into the genres I’m already invested in. Occasionally, when a song from that world crosses my path, I find myself really enjoying it so it’s certainly not for any taste reason. As a disco fan, there’s definitely a lot of house music that I could get into though I find dubstep a bit too over-the-top for my taste (but maybe I’ve only heard crappy dubstep).
By the way, this is a tangent, but I recently had lunch with an acquaintance who thinks there’s real connection between the growth in computer programming types and the popularity of EDMâ€¦something about how the same skill set can be applied to both. Also something about how EDM is easy to listen to while programming. Anyways, just a random anecdote.
