minkwest, I have told this story before, but a few years ago, I was listening to Suzy Hotrod's show with a friend, while playing a game, and we were both really into it. His partner came home, thought it was too staticky, and put on a Spotify rockabilly station. We went from finding new songs in every set to knowing every song that came on.

Long live a little bit of static.

I try to be ethical in my Spotify use. If I really enjoy something I hear I buy a physical CD or buy a copy off Bandcamp. Then any time I want to listen to it via mobile the fraction of a penny is at least a tiny gain on top of what I already spent for the physical media or digital file. Which is more than they got back when I was a kid and I would just tape the records I bought for mobile use.

As far a Rogan goes, well, I haven't stopped using the public library because they have Rush Limbaugh's books, so.....

drr: the source, and the full quote: “My sound is big, heavy and a bit distorted because it has to overlap the guitar,” he said in a 2000 interview. “Someone once asked me to describe my tone, and I said it was like farting in a trash can. What I meant is it’s raw, but you’ve got to have the tone in there.”

@karlward When I was taking bass guitar lessons in middle school I asked the teacher what a fretless bass sounded like and his answer was "A well-tamed fart". Something about the bass that lends itself to comparisons of flatulence.
