two entries for the price of one.

i have two out of three edits decided for my submissions into the SM tourney.

cock/ver10 by aphex twin, and my new Come On My Selector Edit.

The third one is a tossup. It's either going to be a new edit i make for G2 or an edit for the iidx version of Sync. The big problem is that i really want more than four keys to mess with for those edits. Creating a polyrhythmic finger edit with only four keys is damned difficult.

Part of me wants to be lazy and submit my Rusty Arm edit. that's pretty tough.

*shrug* we'll see how i feel once i'm done my cock/ver10 edit.

I saw Queer Eye for the Straight Guy for the first time yesterday.

*ponders*

i think it's safe to summarize my overall reaction as "highly offended" in a way not unsimilar to the way that American Idol highly offends me (which i have also only seen one episode of).

it would take a while to explain, and there's hockey on right now, so i'm not going to try at the moment.

I have issues with Queer Eye as well. I find it very offensive, most likely for the same reasons that you do, BUT at the same time, I find the show to be really entertaining and funny. It's just something that I have to file under the category of knowing that it's complete trash and just letting it be at that..

I'm curious what is offensive about Idol? Well, other than the horrible singing :)

i'm going to jump in and say that, at least for me, what is offensive about shows like american idol (and in general, most of what is on tv these days) is that the producers actually assume that my intelligence is so low that i would actually be entertained by what they're showing. i don't know. maybe that's a bit too harsh.

my issues with Queer eye has nothing to do with them being gay or stereotypes of gayness or anything like that. it has more to do with the issues i have with fashion and materialism being amplified.

i'll write about it in more detail later.
