Anonymous said: More substantive posts. Like with words and stuff. You know.
We’re in that weird time between when I have obligations that keep me in front of a computer regularly (i.e. school and work) and thus my posting has been lackluster as of late. Cool.
Catching up with Don
A couple notes as I avoid preparing for my four-hour Income Tax final that is tomorrow:
- This year, I picked up an odd habit of listening to dubstep/”EDM” as I did homework because I didn’t really like the music so it was really easy for me to tune it out and focus on the task at hand. As the year progressed, I started to notice patterns in the music (and not just because there are like 50 different versions of a given dubstep song). Formulas if you will. One formula is: song popularized by male singer + covered by female singer with small/faint/warbly voice + WWWWWWUBBBBWUBWUB = EDM HITZ. See Exhibit 1, above or Exhibit 2, here.
- College kids love this dubstep crap and listen to it for reasons beyond “blocking out the noise.” I know this is true because I have spent many a night at a bar in town where “EDM” “artists” “perform” and the kids go apesh*t. This particular bar has a balcony that overlooks the stage and I have concluded after watching many of these people perform that I could be an equally good EDM ARTIST PERFORMER because it mostly involves buying lots of expensive-looking equipment, pressing play on an mp3 player of some sort, holding a knob with one hand (try to turn it back and forth in rhythm with the music), pointing other hand at the crowd and/or waiving it like you just don’t carrreeee, mouthing the words to someone else’s music very emotionally, and pouring expensive vodka into peoples’ mouths. Also have someone around in a strange animal costume. I say all this b/c if law school doesn’t “pan out,” maybe I can look into becoming an EDMARTIST like 3LAU, pronounced “blau” b/c letters are 4 squarez.
Those are my thoughts. Did you REALIZE I had so many? Well then maybe you didn’t RECOGNIZE them either. INCOME TAX JOKEZ.
