Yoiks...

Sometimes these things just write themselves, with no input whatsoever from me. Case in point. Jodi is the root of this particular evil.

You are all a bunch of player haters! PLAYER... HATERS! :)

Seriously though... while I am not a fan of his music, he at least:

1. Created his own custom midi controller... which is inherently cool, even if it is a totally dorky midi controller.

2. Like the music is any worse than this Tiesto crap:

I fully concur with RexRhino. Don't hate the player, hate the game.

The beat. did not change. even once.

I think I will officially enunciate CRandall's law:

I = 1/Cm

The interestingness of the music is inversely proportional to the complexity of the custom midi controller.

I can appreciate all the hard work and craft that went into the midi controller, I just don't understand making such conventional music through such unconventional means. Clearly, the guy has an imagination, it's just not being applied to the music.

That is in fact the first time I have ever heard anything by Tiesto. So that's Tiesto, eh?

How/for what exactly is he famous? I see that he preens much like a famous person would, but he doesn't seem to be responsible for any of the sounds that are playing.

Give me utenzil any day (or at least most days, this really is a toss up).

Look, I'm really sorry. I had Pam Anderson lined up for the vid, and I was going to jump over canyons and stuff *PLUS* balance a bunch of drunken Europeans on precariously stacked furniture, but Pam's hep flared up and the money backers pulled out.

so i was left with the consumer cam and youtube.

Err, was that a Justice Vs Simian reference I just caught? I love them ed banger records! Okay, "Never Be Alone" gets old after about 90 seconds, but uffie/feadz and sebastiAn are just hot, hot, hot! The Medhi/Chromeo record isn't bad, either.

I'm just going to go ahead and say it, because it needs to be said. And this is coming from someone who has spent two solid weeks playing a Z-Tar (I'm filling in for my boy in Deadsy for a week on tour... I didn't choose to play the wanky glorified toy guitar, and btw he hates it too)

ALL MANNER OF GUITAR/KEYBOARD/KEYTAR/Z-TARs/SYNTHAXE CONTROLLERS, WHATEVER SUCK A BIG THORNY DICK.

They don't make very good guitars, and they make even worse keyboards. Why, oh, why!?!?! If you want to play guitar, play guitar. If you want to play a synth, play a keyboard. If you could figure out how to play a guitar, you can figure out a keyboard. And if it's too complex, that means you're playing music that is too complex, and girls will not have sex with you if you do that, and that's what we're really trying to accomplish here anyway, right? And the kind of guy who plays a keytar ALREADY has the cards stacked against him in the getting chicks realm anyway because he's probably constantly playing a wankfest like 2112 or Dream Theater or some other vag-dispersing music (yes, that's what you thought it was... as in, clearing all vagina from the room, except maybe your mother whom you probably still live with who is begging you to turn it down and stop posing with your Roland Axis).

Deep breaths, deep breaths...

btw, did anyone notice the music in that vid kinda sounded like a KMFDM filler track?
