don't remember the exact sequence of events, but it definitely started with discovering grimeCan anyone remember their first post? What made them join in?
well at least you posted this when it counted:You'd be wrong.
how come i keep seeing all these dubstep djs looking exactly the same? real skinny, real pale, ratty brown hair, bum fluff mostaches, timid looking types? who is producing these people? where do they come from?
90% of boys in north london look like this too now i come to think of it.
if anything deserves "ok boomer" it's fucking record collecting!! no way those old school record collectors knew more than us. isn't that what that james murphy song is about? they'd probably be amazed that I'd heard of tago mago. I'd need some kind of proof to be convinced otherwise.This is a different group of players embodying a different set of potentials. We don't have the post-grads, we don't have that academic background, and similarly we don't have that core contingent of old school record collectors. Those are the two serious knowledge bases that came along with Matt and Mark at the beginning. We don't know fuck all. We're blaggers. So what they did we can't do. But I think this is a good team, more human, more flexible, less inclined to ride their hobby horses up and down to borrow poetix phrase from earlier in the thread. Stupider certainly, less knowledgeable without a doubt, but with more emotional intelligence, more wit, better natured, humbler, more cooperative, wiser.
Also, dematerialisation, started by me, by myself, is the greatest thread of all time, and that was achieved with this current set of players so actually, we are the best I would say.
This is an interesting question. It was a different kind of knowledge. My feeling is there would have been a better grasp of the fundamentals, the canon, the bedrock, and less knowledge of the outer limits because of access and the kind of weird ecology of the Internet. We'd need woebot and bunnyhausen mms Bruno Francesco Dominic etc to confirm. Maybe Reynolds might have an opinion.
