One of the few times I have to disagree with you on music. Love me some Ramones.

It is strange though, I still like 'Green Day' reminds me so much of the 'Ramones' from my time. And Pink Floyd is the ultimate mellow out at night band, especially the no vocal cuts, just the music coursing through the minds edge.

Or Cliff Burton was Metallica's second bass player ( and best IMO)

Agreed on Pink Floyd.

As far early punk, it's hard to top the Misfits in my opinion.

Yeah, compared to a lot of other DJ's out there, he's got really rough transitions, poor beat matching, and generally, wouldn't get past playing small clubs and weddings if it weren't for his Jersey Shore fame.

He's not great by any long shot, I'd even be tempted to call him bad-ish. Not terrible, but not really any good either.


Now, if he were on the Oakenfold/Paul Van Dyk/Sander Van Doorn level, the girls would have good reason to be excited.

Also, I've got to agree with Kayback on the wanting to punch House DJ's in the head. Way, way, way too many are just doing "mashups" these days without really creating anything new or of their own. With Ableton and 2 hours of practice, you really don't have an excuse anymore.

Agreed. How someone can have more reverance over a music player than a music maker is a sad sign of the times.

I happen to want to punch about 99% of "house DJ's" in the face. They are by and large crap and the garbage they add is generally just that. While there are some good ones all the others should just stop.

Just stop.

Meh . . . it's just not that funny.

Now what would be funny would be if someone played into to some meme about totally misconstruing the intent/meaning of an internet forum post to the point where their negative rebuttal comments didn't even really apply.

THAT would be funny.

It's a shame it just doesn't happen.

As much as I appreciate the effort you're putting into what you're saying, I think you're overreading why I found this conversation so funny.
 
Let's rewind and just ignore the entirety of the conversation up to one point-
 
Originally posted by Musically oblivious coworker Musically oblivious coworker wrote:

That's stupid. Why would you want to meet the musician it's the DJ that does all the work. That's like wanting to meet the guy who built your car.
 
Had she said something like "I don't value music based on acknowldgement of authorship I enjoy the communal aspect of it" this wouldn't have been postworthy, though it would have made for better conversation.

Obviously we could dig into this as an abstract idea all day, and I'm totally down for that, but none of that relates to why I found her comment so funny-she basically played into an internet meme that I always thought only applied to 12 year olds.

I think they'd find their manager posting their pictures on the internet kind of creepy-ish Wink

They're both fairly cute but they're in serious relationships and honestly we have basically nothing in common past being work friends.

That's actually an interesting distinction that frustrates a lot of people, such as strato. Dance music has a history of being relatively anonymous with regard to authorship; it is a communal activity, facilitated by the DJ. The producers of the music are relatively unimportant, what matters is the experience of the dance, which is much more directly related to the DJ, hence the importance. The value mismatch between someone who is experientally driven rather than authorship-concerned is the gulf between strato and his coworker.

DeTrevni's experience is just a mismatch in era, he's concerned with older pop, she with newer.

I'm so glad Jersey Shore doesn't exist any more.

Wow. That goes both ways.
