Surely if you don’t listen to crap, you don’t understand how good the greats are?
I’m suffering one of my periodic bouts of insomnia, and spent most of the dark hours of the morning watching Schiff vidz. I watched Bond and Shang-Chi earlier in the week and was disappointed by both.
Anyway. In his Goldberg lecture-recital, he takes a swipe at millions of Korean and Chinese children for playing da varz note-perfect but with no understanding, feeling, or style. He also takes a pot shot at da WANKAH a bit later on, n generally acts like your urbane uncle who likes to be provocative after a couple of sherries. Poss he’ll end up as da thinking man’s lebresheeyat?
Anyway. He said that the Goldbergs were intellectually and emotionally out of reach of children, but in the subsequent 90 minutes completely failed to identify or plumb any depths at all, restricting his comments to pointing out the canon intervals, rhythmic correspondences and other stuff that is evident with study, and obvious to children with guidance.
I mean, fuck, I do think that far too many people play da Goldbergs with no comprehension, but if you’re going to stand up in public and take a shit on specific ethnicities you really ought to be able to pinpoint exactly why they’re falling short in your opinion.
I dunno, this prob old news (vid was from 2017 after all) n I’m just addled from lack of sleep.
But hey - enjoy the hot alt chicks I posted in da other thread.
