It's for EDM all the kids use it. it gives you fat, one button control over your mixes.. it's supposed to make you sound like skrillex or whoever is famous now. whoever that is, they endorse it. or at least make your coffee taste like skrillex.

Yea, but. Was Skrillex even really a thing? At this point, it just seems like a bad suggestion. Maybe a nearly-forgotten nightmare. A foggy afterthought.

Yes, according to Web Reportz in EDM land, Skrillex still gets paid The Big Bucks to Deejay and is still, I guess, relevant. In Arena EDM land, that is (a land which is not relevant to everyone, of course.)

Although I'm not sure what he's actually done music wise since, say, 2011 when he hooked up with THA KORN and whatnot. The wiki on him suggests that he's possibly going back to his emo days as From First To Last's vocalist. Yes... it *has* been around 20 years since emo was the Big Thing, right? Must be about time for EMO NOSTALGIA.

On the other hand, it seems like the "top arena DJs" in EDM land are basically the same every year. It's like, Calvin Harris and David Guetta and Tiesto and whatnot. Christ, Tiesto was a "rising star" when I started listening to the trance thing like nearly 20 years ago. There's some "new blood" out there (Chainsmokers, Marshmello, Diplo, blah blah) but it's starting to feel like a bit like, uh, a stale scene in Arena Electronic Music Land, however much you care about that.

Crystal Lite was the first thing with Aspartame, I think. I gave up diet pop a year ago & I'm no fatter that I was.* I never liked water with meals but most of the time I do it anyway.

*Maybe because I can't be buggered to change any other dietary habits.

I put away my glowsticks and bad drug habits in the 90's. Likely, I would not even recognize the "scene" anymore. Last I knew, The Prodigy and Chemical Bros were main attractions. DJs? What even are those?

Ben is addicted to Hallmark Channel Xmas movies. Personally, I hate them - they're cheesy and corny like, BEYOND; they're totally white-washed - no blacks, Asians, Hispanics - all white, and they're just stupid. But Ben loves them. Candace Cameron clearly has signed some sort of 2,000 movie contract with Hallmark because she's in EVERY DAMN ONE.

Yes, I know. :samsh:

On the bright side, this is not a bad idea, Plinkster. Our "wives" could hang out and watch STUPID HALLMARK MOVIES while we go into the lab and JAM. :jam:

My wife's mother is addicted to them too, I feel your pain.

(Though at the same time, it's easy enough to see why in her case: every cliche and motif in a Hallmark movie pretty much targets the middle America, middle age and up, white female demographic. It's the perfect network for those who feel Lifetime is too "edgy".)

Christmas cartoon movies where the problem with the world is that people aren't cheery enough on Christmas, are the worst.

And yes, we expect the topic on this thread to change with every page, or sooner even :thu:

I'm in! But let's hire someone to take them tea and tissues & all that. I was in and out so often that I might as well have watched the flics anyway, they're so predictable. I swear, I saw the ending of at least three of them where 'Mr. Right' proffered the engagement ring in a box clearly marked "Kay". M&Ms were also shamefully shilled, I noticed.

Well then, Benedict Cumberbatch might make a pretty good Grinch, if I can be convinced that we need another one.
