    I don't care either way, I despise a great deal of any given generation

    the music nerd elders talked down to or ignored us when were in our 20s-30s, why should we make it any easier on the young 'uns now that we've risen up the ladder and have our boot on their neck?

    being a bit facetious of course, but isn't this the case with most sorts of generational divides? elders feel entitled because they've paid their dues and young ones feel dissed, "you just don't understand, man!".

    it's like the waves of immigrants who come to an area: the Dutch and Germans were early settlers in my neighborhood, and they treated the newcomer Irish like shit, who a few decades later rose up the social and economic ladder and started treating the newcomer Italians like shit, who in turn over time started treating the new hispanic immigrants like shit, who now often shit on the recently arrived Koreans and Vietnamese.

    a time-honored tradition of feeling superior to those who come after you!

Amazing. I told the girl I was with (who was baffled by my taste in music) “this looks like what the music I like sounds like”.

    A couple of years ago I was really sad listening to jungle thinking “fuck, the future happened before I was born”. Why I love the music of the last couple of years so much is that it’s the first proper future in decades. Not just a little tinkering with ing frameworks we already have, but full on alien music.

    I feel sorry for dance music fans; you have a music who’s whole lexicon is based on the future and yet it’s been relegated to being the past. Dance music hasn’t had a new idea in maybe 20 years.
    Again this seems to be a question of how the future imaginary works for someone. I'm not sad when listening to jungle because it was the future it forecasted backwards from the 70s into today - well, maybe not so much the more jazzy stuff I'm talking about the ruffer polyrhythmic clattering breaks business. Similar thing with acid.

    But i can imagine that if what attracted me to jungle was its utopian promise like progressive trance or something then i can very much imagine feeling melancholic and sad. The thing with the 'future' is not just dance music, the whole concept is stuck in the past. noone is actually confused by the concept of futurism or futurist music.

    you have to bring something to the table of future. it is quite selfish in that regard it doesn't hold out a helping hand. you take its hand and it sucks you in. but it in my experience doesn't work the other way. If my idea of future was ethereal space I wouldn't be listening to nasty techno in 2019. sci-fi as a genre of literature is quite boring. it's not deep enough to be proper novels but it's not pulp enough to be crime/gangster/skinhead fiction. it's stuck in that sort of aching middle. what makes Ursula Le Guin so great in that regard is how she wrote her books like novels, very heavy on the dialogue and quite terrestrial. But you read Isaac Asimov and he's a terrible writer in terms of structure. he tries to tell basic cold war stories by crambing as many cool robotic devices and imperial galaxies into them. not for me in 2019 (nothing to do with the politics, just crap writing and crap literature.)

    usually what I mean by future is mad headfuck shit. but future just sounds like so mmuch more of an appealing proposition than headfuck. But it's bragadosio, and pimping, really.

    No, but I did see the Contortions and Teenage Jesus and the Jerks at Max's Kansas City.

    Old Castro remembered bits of hideous legend that paled the speculations of theosophists and made man and the world seem recent and transient indeed. There had been aeons when Leo ruled on the earth, and He had had great cities. Remains of Leo, he said the deathless Chinamen had told him, were still to be found as Cyclopean stones on islands in the Pacific. Leo died vast epochs of time before men came, but there were arts which could revive Him when the stars had come round again to the right positions in the cycle of eternity. He had, indeed, come himself from the stars, and brought His images with Him.
