Hell yah. Now if all the contributions sampled some of it, and synced up to the actual video, it would be the best thing on my internets.

Thanks !

Did you pick up anything else from the gigantic first poll for another round or are all contenders already in here ? That's already a lot of gold material !

 

Nope. The winners of this round will go on into the next.

Well, fuck. How do I choose between these two?

 

  1. Unorthodox use of side-chain compression
  2. 4/4 time signatures that sound like odd meters

Infinity to the power of nothing is such a massive concept that I'm not surprised it's losing out to listening to fast podcasts.

 

I suspect most people here cannot even comprehend the scope of ∞ ^ 0 and what it entails, probably beyond IDM TBH IDK WTF.

Acshully, 0^0 is already interesting. Is it 0 (0^x=0) or 1 (x^0=1).

 

Mind belongs to the set "blown".

Do you think it's note-worthy that 2 topics are about delaying some action until vaporwave is officially dead, and 2 other topics are about cutting off a body part and replacing it with something?

 

EDIT: what a time to be alive!

Tricky choice between 'A video of a dude with small but still within the range or normal-sized legs jamming in Southbank on synths that are powered by a car battery, while people walk by with angry expressions and a single old bearded drunk man dances gleeful' and 'Telling a robot to check its privilege because if you can't feel, no one can hurt you'!
