"That's all as maybe, but just what is the point of the question in the first place?"


You hit the nail on the head.

You're not gonna loike me answer.

The point is to do some dredging.

I wanneur knos wot audiofools on this forum have collectros so opposed to my taste that I must needs ignore them.


Also, I don't like conversing with teenagers, so...if we may clear that up as well....

Not even 1%.

And Blind Chile is determined to keep it that low.
Why?
Paul: your intent is conspicuously decrepit; out there for all to marvel at.

Your out to make me a racist.

Alright then: I DO abhor the vast majority of music coming out of Africa. But China too and Latin America (but not South America & Mexico cos there was a period when these countries made good hard/psych/prog.). Anything made by nomadic peoples is shit to my ears also - that alone encompases lotta races.

So wot?

Blind Chile yam MUSICALLY a bigot.

And, while we are at it, who is to say Blind chile is not BLACK? Is it strange for , say a Ukrainian or Latvian , to hate his own country's history of music ?

I am a bigot for fucking PARTY music - that includes lotta races from salsa races down to, yes, African. (But there is some King Sunny Ade-wotsit that I can stomach.

I enjoy the music that comes out of India and the Balkans, but I generally hate "music" that is tribal. Does that make me a racist?

It is EVEN questionable to label me a MUSICAL racist.

Simply put: the standards I espouse in my choice of music are the sole reason why my collectro is less than 1% black. Not the colour.
Coltrane, miles Davis,Grant green (he IS black, isn't he?) do NOTHING for me.
And, on the other end of the totem, black party pop and much, much worse yet....brrrrr...I don't want to even think of that SHIT.


You can retreat to the comforting fantasy that I am a racist.

Tell you wot: I will even help you along that road: I hate "the Jeffersons" and basically all black/Jewish television.


Is Joe a racist cos he listens to mainly classical music.

Ahh no. But I am cos I listen to prog, right?


Fark off.


And I'm calling ad hom on Paul.

Ad Hominey-grits.
'Why?' does not imply, decrepit or otherwise.

If your intention is to demonstrate that you buy the music you like and avoid the music you don't like, then you have gone a rather long (and strange) way about it.

Regarding your offer of a "comforting fantasy that I am a racist", I can promise that my fantasies will never involve yourself... ;)

The tone of this post and many others are couched to cause offense.
While every now and then this may stimulate discussion, I don’t think that’s what’s going on here.

I AM promoting prog.

There is implicit conflict of interest between that which is merely amusing (your average audiofool musics) and that which is highly elucidating (pwog).

I "stick" to pwog everytime I post in opposition to inferior musics - and Blind Chile does this all the time.


This ill-bred Welder person is a disruptor. He talks of stimulating discussion yet I see no threads started by him here. (Perhaps he knows that to start a thread possibly entails becoming a target.)

He is out to lay asphyziation on me thread.
