Thoughts -was- RE: OT $1.95 synth!

   Mark said,

Well then.  Next time I run into a cute single girl I'll ask her about her
feelings towards computer based audio loopers.

lol!  -hate to say this, but the only reasons I'm back in this again, are

1)  Rick showed me a lot of respect for the art I can create / share, and 
few others have echoed it...  Which I'm truly grateful for beyond words.


2)  I don't look at what I'm doing as "looping" necessarily, and view it 
simply as another creative voice I have.  Quite frankly, to be honest, the 
whole geek factor associated with this form of music, is just not 
I can stomach!  lol!  I could care less about how complex a piece someone 
can put together in front of me, while I'm waiting, wondering where the 
groove is?  :)  And I also am really not interested in how many loops 
someone might be juggling at a time, with what gear...  I mean, like, gag 
me!!!  :)

Obviously, I need to consider the instruments that are available as this 
a performance which is centered around this act of looping?  :)  -but the 
interest stops there...

If the music makes me move and it's got IT, then I'm totally there!, and I 
don't care how they're making it.  If someone is up there just wrestling 
with their equip or their own creativity and losing, lol!  or is merely 
relying on the gear factor to either make the piece or somehow impress me, 
then it's like *yawn* -will go for a walk and come back laters....  :)

   I don't want to give the impression that I'm dissing this whole thing, 
because I'm not.  As I said, this to me, is another avenue with which one 
can express themselves, which to me, is the key; -What's being expressed, 
geekie love of gear, :) or way passionate art and amazingly hot 

Anyway, I'm betting I've said quite enough for now.  :)  So I'll just be 
quiet for a bit and wish y'all a wonderful evening!...  -And I truly look 
forward to hearing some amazingly hot grooves later this year!!!  :)
