Sick of these idiots recommending Ae's early albums

This is just a rant.

 

I am so fucking sick of people dismissing Ae's post-Chiastic output ("where are the tunes?!") and recommending their early albums instead as "absolute masterpieces" with "soul" and "melody" and "blah blah blah".

 

It just screams "I am a stupid, impatient, close-minded, casual, basic, stuck-in-the-past, not-capable-of-listening, knowing-nothing-about-music-melody-rhythm-and-structure, accidentally-bumped-into-IDM-when-I-was-young-and-now-I-am-old-and-tired-with-kids-in-need-of-easy-fun, rather-listen-to-boards-of-canada-because-deep-emotions-tunes-nature-and-geocatching-for-rare-eps, I-can't-hum-it-in-a-shower dumbass".

 

I fucking hate those idiots (especially when they talk about melodies when they actually mean timbres...).

 

I absolutely get they don't like the music (and that is perfectly fine, don't get me wrong) but their arguments and points are asking for a punch in their faces. So fucking stupid it actually hurts.

 

 

Sorry, couldn't help it anymore. I have just read some Amazon reviews...

 

 

 

I like BOC too.

Well more people will connect with the earlier albums, then potentially get into the later albums. I wouldn't recommend the other way around. Just like I recommend Syro or RDJ album with Aphex.

i can't believe this thread isn't from 2007

 

But seriously, just calm down. Yes, while I perfer Autechre's newer works, records like Amber are absolute masterpieces. If someone can't get into the new stuff, that just isn't a big deal. It's basically Intelligent Noise Music (not saying that noise music is dumb as I love noise) and some people really don't want to go that far out.

Autechre have evolved for the better IMO, and they evolved for themselves and their artistic vision. Not many artists can say that. But people don't have to evolve with them.

Shit, sorry guys. I forgot to say that I enjoy early Autechre too (Tri Rep and Chiastic aren't really special to me though, as I already said that I consider Chiastic their weakest). It's just the basic idiots I can't stand. So I am sorry for misunderstanding that this rant was implying that I consider early Autechre bad.

regarding Confield: "we never considered that album very difficult," asserts Booth. "It's like pop music compared to some of the stuff we had considered putting out!"

and who wouldn't love to hear Madonna's Like A Virgin followed up by pen expers or the entirety of lentic catachresis being blasted from cars, shops and open windows on prime time radio lol

 

 

I guess Amber would be considered as being actual pink bubblegum by this ratio

Just ignore them or have a laugh about it, but don't pretend like you or any of us are any better. Waste of energy to get triggered by this.

 

(Also, welcome back :catrecline: )

      Continuing on from here, let's keep talking about games!

      So for the next day and a half, Humble Bundle has a cheap deal on some shitty games as usual, but more importantly this deal includes a copy of Gamemaker, which is a seemingly entry-level game making application. The bundle altogether is only $12 to get the Android Export portion which I'm guessing means you can publish your games on Android for like 10 zillion people to not see. Here's the link: https://www.humblebundle.com/weekly to the bundle.
       
      I watched a couple tutorial videos about the absolute basics, doesn't seem too crazy. The code is something I've never delved much into, though I can dabble and not fuck shit up too much (I can use Processing okay for a beginner, and I could usually do really simply HTML shit...)
       
      Anyway, is that actually a good deal? And would I be getting in over my head? Like, I'm thinking of it as a means of just trying my hand at getting some simple/weird game ideas down, not like making Call of Duty for Android or anything. And more so just to try my hand at some more advanced code-style project stuff. Obviously Gamemaker's whole appeal is that you don't need to know code, but I'm quite sure I'd have to use some to really get through to an end product 'finished' game.
       
      Has anyone used Gamemaker? Or, have any of you made little games yourselves? Advice, thoughts? I mean, yeah, it's only $12, but I'm just curious about any thoughts on that system or if I shouldn't waste my time unless I would really wanna go head first down that path of making games (which I don't).

      Anyone else been playing Elite: Dangerous recently? I've got it and have been enjoying it like hell. I've recently been playing around Alliance territory in my ultra-modified Viper Mk III destroying any wanted ships in my path. Although it's amazing, the game still feels a little empty, but I'm sure the developers will flesh it out more soon enough.
