    There is no way back. Forums "oldschool style" are like vinyl. There will be - some - renaissance - but the times have changed.

    possibly. but i have a messianic dream of dissensus at the centre of all discourse.

    i cant see their forum really taking off cos ive never heard of them. you never know i guess
    but sounds like it will just be another dubstep fourm. they'll probably just give up and come
    here. path of least resistance.

    bottom line is you cant generate interesting conversation when all your mates are so basic

    BTW, I don't think it's the "forum format" per se, but the fact most people go online on their phones these days, which was the real web-forum killer.

    Poor old dissensus doesn't even get a mention

    Mind you we don't actually talk about new music on here anymore

    we talk about new music! every journalist that wanted to talk about juke came here. everyone that wanted to know about deep tech was taking notes off trilliam. that's just a fact.

    I am pushing 40 for crying out loud. I would feel idiotic to enthusiastically big up new music. Doesn't mean I am not interested.

    I thought we all agreed that the most interesting things to talk about on here are metaphysics and DMT, not PC music or whatever

    Discussing music is fun but it would be more fun if it actually mattered

    Like we were the chorus in a greek tragedy and the musicians had to listen to us

    Mind you then the music would probably turn shite

    I was thinking only the other day about critics vs. musicians - has there been many/any good critic-practitioners in music?
