universal, blah-blah, da-da-da, optimistic, futuristic
"The idea came up at the time when I was completely bereft of ideas. I'd been working on my own music for a while and was quite lost, actually. And I really appreciated someone coming along and saying, "Here's a specific problem – solve it." The thing from the agency said, "We want a piece of music that is inspiring, universal, blah-blah, da-da-da, optimistic, futuristic, sentimental, emotional," this whole list of adjectives, and then at the bottom it said "and it must be 3¼ seconds long." I thought this was so funny and an amazing thought to actually try to make a little piece of music. It's like making a tiny little jewel. In fact, I made 84 pieces. I got completely into this world of tiny, tiny little pieces of music. I was so sensitive to microseconds at the end of this that it really broke a logjam in my own work. Then when I'd finished that and I went back to working with pieces that were like three minutes long, it seemed like oceans of time."

Beethoven had pauses that lasted longer, and sounded better.

I agree. Brian Eno is a homo of the worst sort: mac user, musician. Bach was better, used PC, was not gay.

Nah, Bach used an Apricot.
(And don't forget, Trent Reznor used a Mac, and despite that he's pretty cool.)
Hm. Didn't know reznor used a mac. I guess he's a poof too. Fuck now I have to throw out my NiN CDs...

Hate to break it to you, but anyone with a decent amount of money in the music biz uses a mac.

I'm pretty sure Ted Nugent does NOT use a mac. Nor did Bach or Mozard or Sebastian Bach . Whatever ou mac lovers american gays want to believe, so be it!!! I for one will be throwning out my NiN cds... you can keep yours.
still don't know what to do with windows now that I know homo mac user Eno designed the sounds... sigh.

Better pitch it.
Clearly you can't use Linux, so that leaves...

Look just because a couple things happened back in your Dutch army days doesn't mean you are a homo. That said I hate gays and will put my computer on mute unless one of you people have a "hack".

I bet some of the icons were designed on a Mac, too.
Probably a few of the images you see on the internet came from someone on a Mac.

Ted Nugent uses a Mac.

Buy it, use it, break it, fix it,
Trash it, change it, melt - upgrade it,
Charge it, pawn it, zoom it, press it,
Snap it, work it, quick - erase it,
Write it, cut it, paste it, save it,
Load it, check it, quick - rewrite it,
Plug it, play it, burn it, rip it,
Drag and drop it, zip - unzip it,
Lock it, fill it, curl it, find it,
View it, coat it, jam - unlock it,
Surf it, scroll it, pose it, click it,
Cross it, crack it, twitch - update it,
Name it, rate it, tune it, print it,
Scan it, send it, fax - rename it
Touch it, bring it, obey it, watch it,
Turn it, leave it, stop - format it.
the Nuge does NOT use a mac!!!

You foolios. There would be so much less music and art were it not for gays.
The AIDs epidemic wiped out some of our most talented.
But somehow missed George Michael.

George Michael isn't gay. He's in love with his cousin.
