I had a friend said that regueton was a revolution the same way as salsa, of the same magnitude and transcendence. Not, he was quick to point out, obviously in terms of musical quality.

Gritty Indie-Brit vibes.. just how I like my music ;)

The possibility of anything we can imagine existing is endless and infinite

I haven't got the time to spend the time reading something that is telling me nothing, as I will never be able to get that time back, and I may need it for something at some point in time. Wait! What?

Turn back time. Reason why. Break neck speed.
History waiting, waning, exasperating, unstrung, tethered, hoping forever.

No! I tried to settle bets with my own soul.
Bless my lips for the first time before you don't.
Gripping to the last touch of your hand I grow to loathe.
Hope that you remember just how far I'll go.
I'll spend the rest of my life wishing I'm enough.

Resist. Resist. Resist.
Resist. Resist. Resist.

Even nothing, is something.
If one is to live balanced with expectations, then one must learn to appreciate the negative as well, to respect darkness in its own home.

All smoke fades, as do all delicate mirrors shatter.

"My ancestors are smiling on me, Imperials. Can you say the same?"

"Science Fiction today ~ Science Fact tomorrow"

Change is inevitable, it can only be delayed or sped up. Choose wisely.

Truth is pain, and pain is gain.

A lot of people don't remember this song https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=spt1zvbezyE . In fact, 2 years after it came out in 2007, already nobody remembered it. But I did, I marked it carefuly. It was the turning point, the day a song came out that took the balls out from under regueton, allowing people who had previously been offended by its violence but secretly were moved by its rhythm to fully indulge. In my own classroom, all the so-called "sifrinas," or what we might call "too good for you" upper class girls, suddenly were openly listening to and proclaiming their love for a regueton song.

It was downhill from there, I already knew the second I saw those girls playing the song in recess. Suddenly, about half or more of the hits were of that style. And then, well.

Despa fucking cito. Non-threatening. The motions of sex without the penetration.

It took over the world there. Sex without the danger. That's what's inheriting the Earth. Obviously Christianity, or Platonism as we go up the ladder, is largely to blame. To castrate people while convincing them that it is not a thing that exists and that sex is for the castratd, which castration is not something that exists, but Satan or whatever, panic-point forget-all-everything moment. Does not compute point. But that rhythm... Pum, ka-pum-ka, Pum, ka-pum-ka. Sneakily, regueton has been making its way into rap and Beiber hits for a while now, and more and more.

Damn, love or lust
Damn, all of us
Give me a run for my money
There is nobody, no one to outrun me
(Another world premier!)
So give me a run for my money
Sipping bubbly, feeling lovely, living lovely
Just love me
I wanna be with you, ayy, I wanna be with
I wanna be with you, ayy, I wanna be with
I wanna be with you
If I didn't ride blade on curb, would you still (love me)
If I made up my mind at work, would you still (love me)
Keep it a hundred, I’d rather you trust me than to (love me)
Keep it a whole one hund', don't got you I got nothing
Ay, I got something (I got something)
Hol’ up, we gon' function, no assumptions
Feeling like Tyson wit' it, knock it out twice
I'm with it, only for the night, I'm kidding
Only for life, yeah, only for life, yeah
Only for life, let's get it
Hit that shoulder lean, I know what comin’ over me
Backstroke oversea, I know what you need
Already on ten, our money come in
All feeling go out, this feeling don’t drought
This party won't end
If I didn’t ride blade on curb, would you still (love me)
If I made up my mind at work, would you still (love me)
Keep it a hundred, I'd rather you trust me than to (love me)
Keep it a whole one hund', don't got you I got nothing
Give me a run for my money
There is nobody, no one to outrun me
So give me a run for my money
Sipping bubbly, feeling lovely, living lovely
Just love me
I wanna be with you, ayy, I wanna be with
I wanna be with you, ayy, I wanna be with
I wanna be with you
I’m on the way
We ain't got no time to waste
Popping your gum on the way
Am I in the way?
I don't want to pressure you none
I want your blessing today
Oh by the way, open the door by the way
Told you that I'm on the way
I'm on the way, I know connection is vague
Pick up the phone for me babe
Dammit, we jammin'
Bad attitude from your nanny
Curves and your hips from yo' mammy
Remember Gardena, I took the studio camera
I know Top will be mad at me
I had to do it, I want your body, your music
I bought the big one to prove it
Look what you made
Told you that I'm on the way
I'm like an exit away, yup
If didn't ride blade on curb, would you still (love me)
If I made up my mind at work, would you still (love me)
Keep it a hundred, I'd rather you trust me than to (love me)
Keep it a whole one hund', don't got you I got nothing
Give me a run for my money
There is nobody, no one to outrun me
So give me a run for my money
Sipping bubbly, feeling lovely, living lovely
Just love me
I wanna be with you, ayy, I wanna be with
I wanna be with you, ayy, I wanna be with

no fair dude. you edited your post, which was a reasonable and legitimate objection to frank's music. i'm somewhat responsible for this because i've been moving too fast and not providing you with introductory material. so let's start over... something simpler...



okay okay, i'm kidding man. chill out. for real this time. you'll love this one....

Didn't want to be disrespectful to the girl, is all.

No man! Frank Zappa doesn't take himself or the objects of his musics seriously, why should I?

Look at this guy. He takes Cora, and his responsibility in singing about her, very seriously.

a great deal of his music is comedic and tongue-in-cheek to wit, but make no mistake; he was a very serious composer who was forced to adapt to popular culture and its music in order to 'pay the bills', as he put it. there simply wasn't a market for strictly orchestral stuff in the 60's and 70's, so being that he was incidentally fond of both classical and blues, he engineered a unique genre of not-really-rock-and-not-really-classical-but-some-weird-fusion-of-them-both as a style. this characterizes his serious stuff (which there is plenty). on the other hand, the fact that he had to 'lower' himself to the expectations of the typically musically illiterate consumer, pissed him off... and this is the source of that signature sardonic and offensive sarcasm that is found everywhere throughout his music. seriously, what do you do when you're in a position of not wanting to play music style x, but having to play music style x to make a living? you use it as a medium to attack the conventions you're forced to conform to. you get dangerously close to violating the limits, for fun, but you don't dare cross them. that's what you do. that's all you can do. you have to know what the secret frank zappa handshake is to understand any of this, mang.

And saying this I find Zappa a very intelligent and interesting person. I still remember the interview you posted on him talking about the hippie days. I also respect his legacy and standing in music. He's part of what makes Vermont kinda what Vermont is, which is awesome in all ways.

There is just absolutely nothing that draws me to his music. For the reasons stated above.
