Being into classical music certainly lumps me in with the world's worst people.

Oh but it gets even better!

Noted, I'm just so disappointed — I mean, look, I'm a blowhard myself, but when I've been proven wrong I'm man enough to admit it. I'm pretty sure that I've thoroughly discredited Geir's "what the Greeks meant by music" schtick (all that money I keep paying my alma mater finally justified hurrah!), and what's he do? modestly admit defeat, as I hope I'd do in his shoes? no: silence! big brass ones, I tells ya

There is no such thing as "defeat" here anyway. I know what is my opinion on this, and I know I will stick to this opinion on this. I will NEVER EVER be willing to accept ANYTHING that cannot be played on a tuned piano or notated in notes as music!
THAT and ONLY THAT is music!

There goes hildagard von bingen, renaissance polyphony, and er... shuffles notes... Bach seen as his music was originally intended for harpsichords which are not well tempered. Oh wait. Beethovens string quartets are out as well, because violin strings are not divided like pianos are. White supremacy just ain't runnin is it anymore, soon they will be arguing that the only valid white music is anticon because computer generated beats don't have the pesky inability not to be notated by miniscule degrees. Vanilla Ice's nocturnal emition, as it were.

What is it with Norwegians having absolutely no opinions of any worth whatsoever? If Anglos are caricature German, then Norwegians are some ungodly hydra-headed caricature of the French and Swedish.

@chava does Denmark have a healthy brutal rivalry with Norway?
Obviously. Although more with the Swedes. But norwegian are puritan and barbaric simpleton-come-nouveau riches without any taste or sophistication whatsoever. The Saudis of Scandinavia. Terrible, terrible people.

🤣

I love this cos I tend to (unthinkingly) think of Scandinavians as all mature and liberal and not prey to the same petty territorialism as us beefy brits.

I don't. If Africans make melodic music, then they make good music. If Europeans make rhythmic music, then they make bad music.

tbf to ilm here they all queued up to abuse hongo and call him a kook

Oh, he's basically a fascist. no doubt about that. But when he makes absurd statements like this I just end up cackling, it's hard not to when one is separated from that milieu.

If there will ever possibly be any hip-hop song which
- contains absolutely no rap at all
- has a lot of compilated and sophisticated chord changes
- takes zero inspiration from R&B and a lot of inspiration from European classical music and Tin Pan Alley
- Puts a lot of emphasis on melody and harmony and absolutely no emphasis on rhythm at all
- the melodic parts are one hundred per cent originally composed, there is no sampling or turntablismn at all
- is throughoutly pre-composed with absolutely no improvisation
- takes one hundred per cent of its influences from European, European and absolutely nothing but European music
....then I'd probably like it.

like this one makes me laugh, clearly greek or Macedonian or Albanian music isn't absolutely European.

hes also musicologically wrong, European music is very harmonic but not absolutely melodic, 12 tones are too limited to master melodic supremacy. Although ILM's weird anglocentrism probably never got on that, Stelfox excluded - although he's our boy so he doesn't count as the ideological enemy (ha.)
