What the hell is going on in this comment from Dave ‘Johnson’?
His ‘triumphant’ link against me is simply a collection of youtube hyperlinks, dozens of entry’s long.
BEST CLIPS ON ATHEIST:
link 5*SNIP – 50 videos later*we don’t care about the atheist, either!
He is linking to a post on a conspiracy nut website. Dave Mabus can be seen there pretending not to be Dave Mabus / Dennis Markuze. Rather, he’s ‘just a fan’! Sounds legit.
I’m reminded of avante-garde noise artist, Masami Akita / A.K.A. Merzbow’s 50-disc boxset – the Merzbox. It’s all hisses, feedback, clicks, screeches, tape manipulation, and other abrasive sounds. The Merzbox is downright absurd.
The rumor was that if you listened to the whole thing back to back, you’d go insane. Famously, a college radio station (WREK – Georgia Tech) aired all 50 hours of the Merzbox in its entirety. Mabus’ playlist is similarly time-prohibitive and built on incoherent noise.
I once met a guy who had been collecting mp3’s of the Merzbox for months, but had yet to snag the last few discs. He was proud of how close he was. His friend approached during this conversation, and mentioned that he had seen Merzbow perform live.
“How awesome was it?”
“Yeah. He just walked out with a guitar, then set it down next to a speaker. Then he walked a few feet away and stood there staring at us – taking sips from his beer.”
“That’s shitty. I mean, like, you have to at least pretend to be into it, right?”
Come on Mabus. You have to put words in your posts. You have to at least pretend to be into it.
