a byproduct of the churn is that there is something intensely pleasurable and throwback-blissful about those rarer and rarer times when you do get stuck on something and just have to replay it over and over - it's like slipping back into analogue time and an attention economy based around scarcity of options
Yes, this is a rare and joyful experience. I think it last happened to me with this

Interesting re: critics/practitioners. I sometimes wonder if all of us music nerds on dissensus should put our money where our mouth is, so to speak, and make the music we yearn for, but then I think 'isn't the music we all love made by people who wouldn't be pontificating about music on dissensus?' And then I cry and I want to die.

I think you would be a perfect sounding board if I was making music or something cos I know you wouldn't be polite - you'd call a shite a shite

few things get my back up as much as what we students of human nature call self-defeating scripts

music critics who aren't musicians themselves are better - although usually focus on wrong things when writing bout music - than lapsed musicians-turned-critics. Those usually are full of resentment and jealousy.

and speaking of musicians - or in this specific case rather producers - the popularity of youtube was also - somewhat - a blow to music-based webforums which often had subforums focussing on music productions. Those countless youtube tutorials on DAWs and whatnot rendered those parts of the forums totally useless.

I was going to order a book on NLP recently cos I heard enough to make it sound interesting as a therapeutic method but I looked it up online and the wikipedia said its widely recognised as pseudoscience

Just going to show once again that I'm always just one wikipedia search away from joining a death cult

freud is pseudoscience. reich is pseudoscience. i think that misses the point though.

it's about finding ways to conceptualise what happens. how to model processes and systems.

NLP has its strongest presence in the world of buisness and sales becasue it promises
to teach ways to manipulate people. i know them obviously but i dont need them.

I have no interest in controlling other people, I just wish they'd spontaneously do everything I want them to

I'm more interested in controlling myself, something I find impossible as a general rule
