Orbital fuckin rocks. Sucks I have never had to chance to see them live.
It needs posting again. 🙂
This skit from Henry Rollins made me loose all respect for him..censoring techno music..really? what a fascist sellout….just because he knows that a lot of techno music kicks more balls then his sorry ass music…Hardcore 4 Life! Gabbers Unite! 🙂
Don’t be hatin’ on Mad Stan… He’ll Blow it all up.
Your probably right. I would not hurt the guy if i’d meet him.
He is probably a slave of corporate america, paid by universal or sony to undermine independent music publishers. There is nothing to gain from bitchslapping him.
The best response is the DJ that took that skit and made a techno song about it. (It’s listed as the Techno Viking thing on the related videos tab on youtube)
However techno sux. Source? A gay bouncer who has to listen to that crap all f-in weekend while working. Listen to some Berg/Webbern 20’th century Opera (Wozzek is a personal fave) or some Non Slavonic/New World Dvorjak. Or Dropkick Murphys. (I get the wierdest looks when I buy music)
Rollins is not the man he used to be and I don’t respect him as much as I once did. And I am sure he is all tore up about it too.
To be fair, Dance music was to Punk what Punk was to Prog-Rock back in the day, so it’s gone full circle
wow,. you are so off about that.
That skit from Henry Rollins made me gain all respect for him. Techno sucks.
Haha..let the battle begin 🙂
No, but all kidding aside, I went a little overboard with my comments, just like Henry.
Besides, the guy even has some good points in the vid and he probably does some good things for the community too..and if he can make Cballsack happy, the guy still has a purpose in this life.
Dude that is not cool man. Techno, house, tech house, power noise KICKS MAJOR ASS! 🙂
I’m with you and hackslash on this one Rush. Music like anything artistic is subjective. But to say that something “sucks”? That’s just being childish or a troll.
True. Not all techno is bad.
I’ll raise you one wildcat
love me some Ratatat
just turned me on too something new
Someone needs to sample this rant and make a Techno tune out of it
Looks like someone already dunnit!
Henry Rollins is a cunt, I’ve always thought he was full of shit.
Theres plenty of good electronic music and plenty of shit too, just like theres a whole gamut of rock, pop, r’n’b etc. Just to dismiss an entire genre music as shit is crass in the extreme, even with country music not all of it is shit 😉
Something like Borgore for instance, which is getting a lot of play around Mortis Towers these days are more interesting and innovative than Henry Rollins has been since someone else was writing records for him.
Well thank god he’s not wasting his time doing constant USO tours and advocating for Gay rights. I mean, that’d improve the world and stuff…
And he redefined punk and hardcore. He = Gawd. And he judged on Rupaul’s Drag Race. And he was Mother-F***ing Mad Stan. (Altho not looking forward to his Robotman bit on Brave and the Bold. I wanna hear rants dangit!)
I fuckin love this too.
Gotta love the filth!
This track is sick!
And thanks Micah for needlessly starting shit on a post they I had put up that was meant to be fun.
You’re entirely welcome.
Ya, I really should have known that was the response I was going to get.
Unemployed/Underemployed Music Teacher. Besides, think of it this way, there’re worse things out there.
That, for instance.
Best headline ever.
there’s a guy that seems to be enjoying the heck of himself
good for him
Thank you so much Jose. This really just made me so happy!
LOVE IT!!!!!! Yeah!!!!!!! The Doctor goes to Glastonbury would be a great story for the show. Come on Moffat, get on it!
this brilliant song only has 130 views.
Going back a bit, but still…
Nice one. Cool old stuff. 83? Didnt know it went that far back. Most old tracks i know are from 90+
There were some amazing Italo Disco tracks in the early 80’s which influenced basically everything. But that scene went crap very quickly and everything just sounded like that Axel F/Beverly Hills Cop tune
My pal ( http://soundcloud.com/btechdj ) did this proper bangin’ Techno mix a while back, hope you like!
Wo ist der techno by bTECH
I dig this.
How can you have a discussion about techno and not include these guys
I have to say I preferred their earlier stuff when the music was a bit more stripped down and they hadn’t become superstars yet
Any of you familiar with Ofra Haza? She had one of the best singers in the world. Her vocal on the Love Song remix always give me chills.
I remember her alright, this was a hit in the UK back in the late 80’s/early 90’s
This remix by Deadmau5 kicks ass.
Who doesn’t like daft Punk, they’re awesome
Hell ya. The dance floor has gone nuts when he has dropped this remix at some clubs I’ve been to.
Hi.I was going to wait until the next Open Thread,but since everyone’s talking about music,etc I’ll go ahead and make a fool of myself now.I recently saw Velvet Goldmine.NOT what I expected AT ALL,but I’m fascinated by this film. This is me attempting to review it.
I know it was a flop. Does anyone else here like this film or am I on my own?
FUCK! let’s try again…
…what’s sad is it took me 3 tries and I haven’t had a drink since the weekend…
I guess..(mumble grumble) Goddam kids with their iphones and their downloads..don’t know how easy they got it.I had to walk five miles in the snow for MY records! (smiley face)
Here is progressive house set I did a while back.
Aw great stuff man 🙂
Thanks MIKE F.
Not my thing, but you have talent
Thanks man. I still need a shit load of practice.
Better than most techno I’v heard
what’s your genre of choice?
Hip-hop, RnB, classic blues,some alt rock, Neo Soul and my one lone country artist Johnny Cash.
I’m all over the map and you?
Old school rock, metal, Industrial, power noise, experimental, ambient, house, tech house, minimal mainly electronic. Though I make room for anything that sounds good to me.
Same I’m totally prepared to like stuff I haven’t heard before or had a interest in.
such as these guys
I like the sampling of Zepplin 🙂
Yeah it’s pretty bangin!
Now for weird pay close attention to the eggs
I’ve been DJing 80’s Soul/Synth Pop/New Romantic stuff for years but I’ve been slowly easing myself into the 90’s recently via Italo, Chicago House and Acid…This is nice stuff. Thanks for sharing!
Well JMS just jumped the Grizzly Shark!
I kinda like the new look, those spangly hot pants did look a bit dumb. As for the story I’m willing to give it a shot, I like the sound of a Wonder Woman thats a bit less aloof.
The look I can live with, its the direction.
JMS bemoans and cry foul about OMD and he goes and does the same thing to Wonder Woman.
Hell when questioned about the effects it’ll have on continuity he gave a half-assed answered and when pressed about characters directly related to WW like Wonder Girl and Donna Troy, you know what his answer was?
“Well those guys can figure it out”
He gets all bitchy when another writer wants to use Thor or when he’s forced into a storyline then he goes right ahead and does it to someone else.
So basically JMS is saying fuck Teen Titans, fuck Donna Troy and fuck anyone who might have plans for them.
What a hypocrite
WOW! I can feel a disturbance in the force already from the rising nerd rage. It’ll be interesting to see what comes of this and his Superman doing a Caine impersonation.
Superman “Grounded” sounds like a solid idea, his plans for WW not so much
I am really surprised by this. I doubt this new direction will last. I have a feeling this is somehow going to be tied into the Bruce Wayne thing.
JMS don’t care about sharing and he sure as hell don’t care about making stuff line up with Bruce Wayne’s return.
Unless Geoff Johns has a hand in this it’s unlikely
My curiosity is piqued though.
We’ll see I’ll give him 3 issues and if it don’t smell right, Later WW.
Damn! I’m a Webster Bater
Myself, I might give him a few moreissues than three unless its a flat out train wreck. Thos B&B’s Hooked me. Sure they were mostly ones and dones, but for the most part they were excellent! So I’ll give him a chance. Maybe 6 issues.
On the new suit: Not the worst thing I’ve ever seen, But I think the average comic buyer should be able to see a picture of WW without her title showing and say “Hey WW’s gotta new costume, instead I think most of ’em would say ” What’s this, a new get up for Donna Troy?
It’s a bit 90s
The 3 issues limit, he’s proven he can do compressed stories so 3 is enough
I agree the costume does look a bit 90s.
I just think its funny, JMS is right, the Wonder Woman book desperately needed to be revived.
I just think the guy is a EPIC hypocrite.
Plus making WW “Urban” is pretty damn stupid.
How do you know until you’ve actually READ the book?
He said it in the interview, straight from the horses mouth.
As I said he gets 3 issues too change my mind.
Wasn’t this in a John Holmes movie? 🙂
