    Default 'The Future' Weaponized For Intergenerational Warfare.

    I'm not stupid I do understand why third and (occasionally) Barty want to undo the power of this framework because it very obviously is used as a way to dismiss whole generations.

    When I was in my twenties and I wanted to have a seat at the table and join in the conversation grime was very useful to me because no one could with any conviction pretend it didn't sound utterly alien.

    All this stuff is in some respects a battlefield

    I’m very pro-future. I love it.

    I went to this planetarium once and it was space projected all over the walls and you were being launched through all these stars and galaxies and it had all these things where all these machines were being disassembled and all this. 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.

    Of course. I think me and third are unlucky in the context if dissensus to have found all these people we love to chat to 15 years after they’ve given a fuck about music.

    Yeah and I partly started the thread to apologise and say I do understand the frustration. It's bad that weve all gone braindead

    There's always an urge to break the frame if a generation can't get it to work for them

    I've talked about it a lot in terms of the dissensus post dubstep wars where the post dubstep lot decided they're only option was to trash the hardcore continuum frame

    Because it is seen as a device to dismiss their music. Which it was. But the music obviously was still shit.

    But there's always this thing of if you can break the frame you can break the power of those who wield it and in some way derive their authority from it.

    This is my reflection for the day. About my role as supreme leader of dissensus the oppressive overlord and malevolent dictator. And the kind of resistance that inspires.

    Anyway I was trying to do something different before not really to do with hardcore continuum or the future. So in a way I don't really care. I wanted to do another thing like in this or that and time barrier etc I don't need the future or hardcore continuum to smash young people's hopes.

    To get the best out of people you have to make sure they feel heard and appreciated. This is like become I g a magament theory thread like the extinction rebellion one. But also you will yourself be a partisan adopting partisan positions and having a particular vision of what things should be like so you, as both prince and Machiavell have to balance these things
