I like this thread better now that Khar yelled and cussed a lot.

It's only in sitting here and listening to acoustic lady gaga that I realize I never want to post about music in this forum again. It's actually a pretty awful experience all around, and the forced justification to discuss the things that I may or may not like is incredibly repelling. Yes, I do need to consider that the site and comic were launched as an indie-elitist haven, but given that indie-elitists tend to pride themselves on their intelligence, the total lack of tolerance is quite indicative of the opposite. It's like when atheists take their beliefs to a dogmatic level only comparable to radical muslims or the catholics without the slightest touch of irony.

That said, Lady Gaga's new cd is really great. I get the selling factors and the cult of personality that surrounds her, and I am thankful knowing that she's talented enough to back up the hype. I'm calling it now that she'll be around for a while, barring unforeseen extreme events.

On the flipside of overexposure, after 2007 being dubbed the year of Timbaland, Shock Value 2 has been an underwhelming pile of shit, with the only mentionable collaborating artists being Chad Kroger and an army of pre-legal teenaged girls. Result: generic and played out, even for him.

In a lot of cases, I would agree with you, Beat Mouse. Music is about having a good time, right? Except, in cases like Khar, I am near positive that Khar's musical tastes are based on nothing but what he enjoys listening to. There's a difference between elitist hipsters who are basing their music on what it is cool to like, and cool to hate, and people who just have very specific tastes in their music. And from what I can tell, Khar's tastes are not very limited at all.

I understand that Khar is not the rudimentary troll that he likes to play. I was more inclined to post something akin to that in the rap thread that fell to similar responses, but either one would serve the same deaf ears. Being special assholes who like other assholes is just the same something I'm totally used to (especially when it comes to forums) but there's a certain extent to which it's not even worth reading when it's a slim 10% of posts that are actually talking about the unpopular topic of discussion and you have to filter through the unnecessary opposition.

Especially when the response is "if you want to talk about that shit make a thread about it" and then that thread has the same people rebuking "this thread is full of stupid shit." It's exhausting eye-twitch internet behaviour.

what.

Man look I was a bit drunk and whatnot last night but it doesn't change the validity of what I was saying. Refusing to suck the cock of the big four record label and buy into the fake hype and marketing of their latest batch of renta-stars is not being 'elitist'. You can't say someone is an elitist because they punch above the lowest common denominator. You might as well go into the film and TV subforums and start calling people there elitists because they're not talking about Everybody Loves Raymond or Evan Almighty. You might as well go back in time to the USSR and call people elitists for reading samisdats and listening to bootleg western music rather than reading Pravda and listening to some Melodya contrived Stalinist Elvis clone. Foolishness is foolishness and that's that.

Khar, you don't listen to arguments by people just making points on this subject and you don't listen to anything resembling theoretical intellectual arguments for mass culture engagement so let me ask you if there's anything anyone possibly could say to make you realize how much of a posturing iconoclast you're being and how most of us are actually interested in discussing Jeremih simply because we're interested in Jeremih's music? We're interested in being aware of all of the culture around us? We can have this conversation about hegemony but it's a lot more complicated than you're making it out to be and so are our motives for discussing it. Flipping out like the living incarnation of the back cover of Yanqui U.X.O. isn't going to change that.

Also this is the last bit of Gaga chat I want to engage in until the next single and its accompanying (inevitably batshit) video drops but how weirdly audacious is packaging The Fame Monster with The Fame as one massive thing? It's basically Black Sheep Boy: The Definitive Edition or whatever Okkervil called it, I guess, but with Top 40. Still so weird.

You're pretty keen on deliberately misunderstanding where I'm coming from in order to make some bullshit arguments huh Johnny?

Also don't you think it's pretty intensely patronising to try and claim that Top 40 music is the genuine soundtrack of the working class when it's written by university graduates to be sung by millionaires and a huge proportion of the buying power that drives the charts comes from white middle class teenagers with high disposable income? Because I kinda do!

If there's anything Greg Gillis has taught me, it's I like Top 40 -- after Greg Gillis is done violating it.

Khar, you can always choose to perceive this thread as the ghetto to divert the pleebs without the musico-intellectual profundity to appreciate the music being discussed in every other thread.

But if you want to seriously engage on the subject of Top 40, why do you persist in ignoring that most would rather listen to music in order to participate in a shared social experience than an aesthetic one.  And if you can accept that, really, what else is there to discuss?

So you listen to music just because other people like it (based on corporate provided and manipulated sales figures)?

So if tomorrow I somehow managed to get the sound of me shoving a microphone up my arse to the top of the charts you would think that is awesome just because it is at the top of the charts?

Are you also like "MY COUNTRY RIGHT OR WRONG" and "YOU CAN'T CRITICISE THE GOVERNMENT BECAUSE THAT'S TREASON" because seriously.

Also, musico-intellectual profundity? One minute I'm getting denounced as a phillisitine because I don't think it's necessary for people to learn music theory to make music, the next I'm being slammed as a blue-blood elitist because I don't think that listening to Pussycat Dolls is somehow part of the social contract. I can't fucking win, can I?

You misunderstand, I'm not calling you anything.  I'm saying that if there is a thread where folks want to suck the cock of the big four record labels knowing full well what they are doing as consenting adults, they should be permitted to without recrimination.  And I'm suggesting that if you find that mentality genuinely difficult to comprehend,  you can rationalize the thread as a diversion of those with whom you brook little common ground from other threads.  Of course, if you are just spoiling for an argument for the sake of arguing....

In any event, the Paris Hilton album was more or less the aural equivalent of you shoving a microphone up your own arse, and yes it sold.  Demonstrating that plenty of folks will buy an album just because other folks are buying that album.  This phenomenon is one of great interest to media studies folks because the so-called "long tail" has failed to manifest.  In other words, the greater diversity of choice available through the internet was predicted to end the blockbuster, and it hasn't.  Instead we see a further stratification of the media market into the blockbuster and the niche product.  Why has greater choice failed to kill the blockbuster, despite the fact that logically it would provide more media products closer to the particular tastes of each individual?  Because, ultimately, a great number of folks simply want media that other people also want, so that they can discuss the media, experience it together, have a sense of belonging and common ground.

I'm not saying that this is why I, or you necessarily listen to music.  Nor am I saying that this is a necessarily worse reason to listen to music than any other.  But can you, with a straight face, deny that this is why many people who comprise the majority of the music buying population listen to music?

To be fair, the effect of the Internet/downloading/declining sales has greatly redefined the standards of what constitutes a "blockbuster"

I think it's because this way, you may as well buy the new CD and get both of her albums than buy the old one exclusively. The people buying these albums in this day and age are just buying a Lady Gaga CD because it's Lady Gaga and she's that bird off the telly/radio etc - "Yes I'm sure your granddaughter will love this album but why not get the new one because you get the old one too". Seems like good value to me regardless. Nobody is losing out.

Thus by packaging them together it looks like the newest album is selling a lot more than the last one, which had better reviews all round and more recognisable singles.

This is a point we kind of passed over.  I think an important distinction pilsner doesn't seem to be making here is: Of course Khar wouldn't think of this thread as a ghetto for "pleebs," because as he mentioned, the Top 40 tracks or whatever of the Billboard music charts don't necessarily best represent the music that "pleebs" like and listen to.

The thing about genuine music of the working class is that to discuss it we enter a space where geography and community actually are really significant, in contrast to top 40. Which is not to say that the Tops 40 in different countries aren't different, just that the Top 40 from one place to another is generally more similar from place to place than the music of the working class.

Refusing to suck the cock of the big four record label and buy into the fake hype and marketing of their latest batch of renta-stars is not being 'elitist'. You can't say someone is an elitist because they punch above the lowest common denominator. You might as well go into the film and TV subforums and start calling people there elitists because they're not talking about Everybody Loves Raymond or Evan Almighty.

so nothing popular is ever good?  i can't enjoy The Dark Knight because it made a bazillion dollars?

it's not that i don't understand what you're saying but i don't understand how you don't understand that what you're saying is dickish and elitist.  or that you should just stay away from a thread like this.

He does, and that's why he says it. Facetious doesn't aptly describe trolling, but it's about the best I can do at the moment.

So what is the music of the "working class," whatever you mean by that?

It's whatever any particular person who you might define as working class feels like listening to.

What did you fucking think?

khar doesn't troll outright, in a sense he believes what he's saying has importance and relevance.

sometimes he doesn't think his arguments through very well, though.  johnny nailed it with the "living incarnation of the back cover of yanqui u.x.o" line.

Guys just stop replying to the shit he says and eventually he'll get bored and go vent his frustration out by punching people at metal shows.

Holy shit that Jason Derulo song that samples Imogen Heap is at the top of the charts, how'd that even happen

It happened because it is fucking awesome.

My friend thinks it's a joke, that the song is awesome partially because it took this indie hipster thing and stripped it of any "soul" it may have had by electronifying it and making it a monster pop hit.

I just think it's an awesome song.
