Re: “Moogfest Announces Daytime Programming of Interviews and Workshops

Good points David,

I just don't understand them begging already broke Durham City and County for $150,000 of our tax revenue to pay for "Moog community events" when they don't book any LOCAL artists?!

What in the Hell type of Money Laundering Scheme are they running ?!?

Re: “Moogfest Announces Daytime Programming of Interviews and Workshops

What a boring set of talks, many of these topics have been covered 10-15 years ago, Daniel Lanois and GZA would be interesting, but bozos like Jaron Lanier failed Silicon Valley d-bag, and nuskool hiphop kids discussing AfroFuturism will be like SouljaBoy fawning over Sun-Ra, and Kowdo Eshun, We're all fans of the movement, but the speakers have absolutely NOTHING to do with creating or perpetuating it.

Coupled with the complete lack of LOCAL Triangle Electronic Artists and Musicians (besides Professor Toon, great rapper, but never once used a Moog!)

I'll be skipping this years lack luster, carpet bagging, sorry excuse of a music event.

Re: “Laughing at Your Counterfeit: On Franklin Street, Mandey Brown Will Take Your Fake

Fakies aside. Who can recall the last time they went dancing at your creepy bar and why slut shame your potential customers, they can grind on whomever they'd like. You're one to talk about running a gross club, the bathrooms in Zogs haven't been cleaned since Hell was across the street. Where else can one get a warm beer, play pool on a tiny crooked billiards table, and feel pressured into buying absolutely horrible folk art decorating your "Etsy-in-real-life" dive. I'm surprised CHFD hasn't shut down your fire trap of a venue, it needs a good scrubbing. Zog's must be drunk speak for herpes, it just won't go away.

Re: “Party Illegal is the Inclusive Dance Party Durham Has Long Deserved. Can the Series Shape its Wider Scene's Future?

Disguising garbage technique behind politics, gender or otherwise, is absolutely counter productive to the very movement they are promoting.

AntiSalt you need to clear that privilege outcha ears, and get some damned education

Eric, you've ignored or refused to address my point, that they can NOT Dj.

Masquerading these hacks behind a Rainbow doesn't hide the fact they are Poor performers.

It's simply despicable to continue pedaling such trite, vacuous, lacks of talent as "wild".

In the words of Sweet P.Pauline, "Leave the coins on the dresser and hit the Door! NEXT"

Definitely NOT Durham's first dance or gay club, you're probably too Post-Gentrified Bull City to remember Ringside and other venues. It's cute and fuzzy that y'all try to spin on such bunk equipment, but have some self respect when it comes to your abilities.

Why do you persist on veiling your low commitment to performance behind gender politics? Why does every blend wreck? DJs at Legends don't wreck, DJs at The Bar don't wreck. You don't get a pass because your sexuality. This music is "of and for the repressed." Present it with more dignity!

There are plenty of talented Local, Female, and Gay DJs, this 'group' is not one of them. Hater Trigger... Nope, this is Real Talk, and in the words of Beyonce "Y'all got NOT sauce in your bag, slags"

Re: “How UNC professor Lee Weisert turns 10,000 tiny bubbles into hours of sound.

The boring ambient chirps have literally nothing to do with the pond water... neat?
No, amateur!

Why not connect a modular synth to the arduino boards or use cameras to monitor distribution density of the particles and play back sounds, or amplify actual pond water creatures swimming around, or if you're so into performance pieces set a flautist on fire and listen to them scream while gazing at a tub of water only inches away...

My point dear "artist" is try harder!
