the whitless strike back

"Whitless" (sic): see here.

For those of you who haven't seen it, the masses have been extending the Ornette-Darius debate in a way too multi-threaded and densely-argued to summarise right now. Check it out.


The award-winning Steve Smith and the Germany-hitting Darcy James Argue have both contributed excellent super-listening suggestions:


Cyclops can't/won't dance, but he does enjoy the math rock (power+control).

Hollywood probably would set Preacher to a soundtrack of Lamb of God and Rob Zombie, but I personally hear the '80s Touch & Go roster -- the Butthole Surfers and the Jesus Lizard, especially.

The young Cerebus was into Wagner and Basil Pouledouris, but from the time he was Prime Minister onward, he had no use for music. That was definitely true during his papacy and the long years he spent railing against feminism. He might have embraced traditional religious music in his final years, but in his last days I suspect Wagner's "Liebestod" from Tristan und Isolde was playing in the back of his head.

And TBP validated the Spiderman connection.
