… is the essence. Said it before – here – and here – now saying it again. Here. But this one is a bit different. Let’s see what it looks like in the morning.

No – not an AI …

Experimentation – sometimes “the essence of life” on other occasions “the catalyst of creativity”.

Can’t argue with that!

… though I am sure someone will!

Well — sometimes “the excuse for consciousness-alteration to excess accompanied by atypical expression of sexuality” but yes.

see what I mean?

Did that constitute an argument? Or just an overly-disclosing projection accompanied by unconscious disclosure of embarassing personal experience… Oh.

I see what I did there.

  1. Not sure where to put this, but can probably wedge it in here as creativity in music.

    From the most recent issue of the New Yorker (June 19, 2017):

    “People called it progressive rock, or prog rock: a genre intent on proving that rock and roll didn’t have to be simple and silly — it could be complicated and silly as well”

    But then this too:

    “The genre’s bad reputation has been remarkable durable, even though its musical legacy keeps growing.”

    1. hmmm – the online reference : http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2017/06/19/the-persistence-of-prog-rock

      take out any reference to ELP and Crimson and the article will reduce by 50% – moreover kill Genesis and Yes – that will take out another 50%.

      oh and peter gabriel left genesis to become a pop star ? i agree collins did – that is how he single handily destroyed genesis – but gabriel?

      take out all references to prog before ’75 and there is 1% of the article left

      i agree with him – radiohead is NOT a progressive band .. in any shape or form – great – yes – but not progressive

      confusing kansas and styx with progressive is the usual confusion that i so hate – they were rock bands – that by the way is why i describe my interest in progressive music as ‘english progressive’ … despite my best shots rush and tool are not my taste

      finally an entire paragraph on progressive post ”75′ … Kelefa – who was coincidentally born in 75 – needs to explore a little more.

      1. Thought you might have an opinion on this.

        I do wonder if the writer didn’t give himself away:

        “…rock and roll didn’t have to be simple and silly — it could be complicated and silly as well.”
