Re: re: what do loopers do when they're not looping?
I find television very interesting, being a bit of a McLuhan headed type
being. at my place it is almost always on, cable (unless The Establishment
has turned it off!) with a few extras, but man it's just always on, usally
with the sound off, so i can hear myself play/think. But I find I am even
more satisfied while semi-surfing the net/playing ill gtr/watching
t.v./having a phone conversation/reading a book or mag. the more different
things going on the better for me. they're just kind of on different levels
of import. that and growing up playing guitar and always watching tv,
soundtracks to whatever was on, so.
