Fair enough man, i take your point. I think probably as always the truth nlies somewere in the middle of both our arguments, with it having a bearing on the prospect of young folks breacking throught, or even being inspired enough to try

and i totally agree with your point about them being freekshows, but thats not new either, if you ever see the gong show they alawys had one delibratly terrible act on ever week.

I never did see the Gong show but I saw the movie where the host claimed to be a spy for the CIA - it was very entertaining! The show looked awful though!

I was chatting to a mate about this the other day, about how reality tv has now just decended into pure nastiness, even though they try to dress it up as something else. I wish they'd be a bit more honest and admit that the audience is baying for blood, humiliation, terror, etc. How long before Running Man type shows become real I wonder?

But I agree with Alan in that I think there is also a lot of great stuff out there, it just needs to be found. All the amazing music and culture that I discover on an ongoing basis still gives me a glimmer of hope in people and the world...the difference here is that IMO a large majority of people in the world will simply accept whatever bullshit is thrown at them. They seem to have lost their ability to discern what they actually like/are interested in.


don't get me wrong, i absolutely agree that there is indeed a lot of great stuff out there. it's just that one has to wade through an ever growing stinking pile of shite to get to it.


well, in the pile of shite you get sent, i became aware of dan deacon and his craziness because you helped to put it out there. it is miles ahead of any-style driven fakery out there and makes me want to dance like i'm 7 again.

good is out there.

with more people in the world it just gets harder to winnow out what is magical.



I have not seen a talent like this for quite some time, such flow.

Have to watch the whole video to appreciate is true beauty
