the first feedback i received after i invited people to pass by, was a friend who, among many nice things, couldn't beleive
i hadn't put the Stones and the Doors in the list of Consolidated Musical Harbours. He touched a delicate point, so i feel
i can write something on the subject; that is to say that i WAS uneasy exposing a list of this sort, 'cause i know so many
of you guys would have reacted like Marco.
I don't feel guilty.
First of all because this is a "first-hand site" I threw on the web without much thinking, ESPECIALLY as for
what concerns words, personal likes and commercial or social issues; i speak better in images.
secondly, my lack of sense of guilt obeys my life up to today: neither my parents, nor my big brothers, nor my highschool
friends, nor my girlfriends, nor my ex-wife, nor the people i worked with were so fond of the stones or the doors to make
me absorb a passion for them. Of course i know them, and i've always liked the hits i heard on the radio, but i never felt
i needed to buy a whole record: Didn't even ever received one as a gift, so, as a matter of fact, i don't have them. Other
musics filled the gap, i'm sure, since i live my days with some music playing in the background (now it's chet baker and art
pepper, on the radio). I said passion and i referred to intimate relations; i guess i absorb a musical passion better when
i'm deeply involved with the original listener... if it's a fault, it's been a groovy one!
Thirdly, i am struggling to get free from memes, in the way that i'd be fairly satisfied if i could at least recognize
them when they try to use me. To enjoy the good ones and to get rid of the bad ones. It's a nonsense in itself, since i can
only make such a distinction with the use of other memes, but one thing is to be born in a certain world, with it's meme population
symbiotically living with us human carriers, and another thing is to see humans launching artificial memes trained to drain
our pockets or, worse, our minds, for their personal advantage. (we) advertisers of all types do this for a living.
(This speech, as i type it, is a thought. When you read it, it's still my thought. If it makes you think, it's a meme-embryo.
If you tell somebody you liked it, it has become a meme. if your listener refers it along, confirming it's cool, it will become
cooler, and cooler and it transforms in a strong meme, which doesn't mean it has to be a good meme! Do the same with a brand,
and you have our cool meme-wars filling our lives)
((On a personal level, i think this is like the memory of a memory, like when i have an opinion i know i always had, so
i stick to it))
So i don't really care if it's not cool not to know the stones or whoever. once more i know it's a strong meme, constantly
pushing to get in my list, and i'll be happy for it the day it'll win :-). I'm sure they're already doing castings to detect
the surf-girl that will help me absorb their music, hahahahahaaaaaa... nooo, an agreement with my children seems to be more
No need for particular defenses from music, anyway; the serious stuff is elsewhere: the world can't agree on deciding
which ancestral memes are correct and which are not, and it's a mess. some artificial memes have their damn responsabilities
in all this confusion.
I want to concentrate on this, now.
It's fucking hard, whith human carriers burping or not burping, celebrating death in black or in white, and feeling guilts
they don't even understand, given such old origins...
Ah, i also like zydeco; heard in ignorance, loved instantly, decided to shoot a support-meme right now.

Mine is bullshit; some experts are here:
