Default Reasons to listen to music?

Other than for enjoyment?

Billy was talking about this during the recent ustream chat. Can you think of a reason?

On a cool, clear night (typical to Southern California) Warren G travels through his neighborhood, searching for women with whom he might initiate sexual intercourse. He has chosen to engage in this pursuit alone.[6]

Nate Dogg, having just arrived in Long Beach, seeks Warren. On his way to find Warren, Nate passes a car full of women who are excited to see him. Regardless, he insists to the women that there is no cause for excitement.

Warren makes a left turn at 21st Street and Lewis Ave, in the East Hill/Salt Lake neighborhood[7], where he sees a group of young men enjoying a game of dice together. He parks his car and greets them. He is excited to find people to play with, but to his chagrin, he discovers they intend to relieve him of his material possessions. Once the hopeful robbers reveal their firearms, Warren realizes he is in a less than favorable predicament.

Meanwhile, Nate passes the women, as they are low on his list of priorities. His primary concern is locating Warren. After curtly casting away the strumpets (whose interest in Nate was such that they crashed their automobile), he serendipitously stumbles upon his friend, Warren G, being held up by the young miscreants.

Warren, unaware that Nate is surreptitiously observing the scene unfold, is in disbelief that he is being robbed. The perpetrators have taken jewelry and a name brand designer watch from Warren, who is so incredulous that he asks what else the robbers intend to steal. This is most likely a rhetorical question.

Observing these unfortunate proceedings, Nate realizes that he may have to use his firearm to deliver his friend from harm.

The tension crescendos as the robbers point their guns to Warren's head. Warren senses the gravity of his situation. He cannot believe the events unfolding could happen in his own neighborhood. As he imagines himself in a fantastical escape, he catches a glimpse of his friend, Nate.

Nate has seventeen cartridges to expend (sixteen residing in the pistol's magazine, with a solitary round placed in the chamber and ready to be fired) on the group of robbers, and he uses many of them. Afterward, he generously shares the credit for neutralizing the situation with Warren, though it is clear that Nate did all of the difficult work. Putting congratulations aside, Nate quickly reminds himself that he has committed multiple homicides to save Warren before letting his friend know that there are females nearby if he wishes to fornicate with them.

Warren recalls that it was the promise of copulation that coaxed him away from his previous activities, and is thankful that Nate knows a way to satisfy these urges.

Nate quickly finds the women who earlier crashed their car on Nate's account. He remarks to one that he is fond of her physical appeal. The woman, impressed by Nate's singing ability, asks that he and Warren allow her and her friends to share transportation. Soon, both friends are driving with automobiles full of women to the East Side Motel, presumably to consummate their flirtation in an orgy.

The third verse is more expository, with Warren and Nate explaining their G Funk musical style. Warren displays his bravado by claiming that individuals with equivalent knowledge could not even attempt to approach his level of lyrical mastery. There follows a brief discussion of the genre's musicological features, with special care taken to point out that in said milieu the rhythm is not in fact the rhythm, as one might assume, but actually the bass. Similarly the bass serves a purpose closer to that which the treble would in more traditional musical forms. Nate goes on to note that if any third party smokes as he does, they would find themselves in a state of intoxication daily (from Nate's other works, it can be inferred that the substance referenced is marijuana). Nate concludes his delineation of the night by issuing a vague threat to "busters," suggesting that he and Warren will further "regulate" any potential incidents in the future (presumably by engaging their enemies with small arms fire).

Anyway, I think listening to music is like any other art for personal consumption, with the addition of functioning as a communal experience as well. So, individually it can be meant for enjoyment, or like poetry/literature, to explore new ideas or convey an emotion or champion a social cause or whatever you use those things for. Communally, you can use it for enjoyment, or dance, or to communicate something to people around you- I'm a badass, I'm ironic, I follow the latest trends, I'm classy, I'm intellectual, whatever, just like clothing or architecture in your home. And finally, it can add texture and depth to other art forms, like theatre or movies, or even as a soundtrack in an art museum.

Also, with the possible exception of films, it seems to be the only art form that can brazenly be used to influence commercial decision-making (calculated tunes at restaurants or shopping malls).

Bring on the hate

Lets say that Billy is listening to one of John Lennon's sound college records. Now most of us would say man that sucks. But what would Billy be looking for in something like that? How could he utilize the ideas in that to further his own musical aspirations?

If Corgan made a Two Virgins-type of album, that would be a 756% improvement on what's going on now.

To get ideas for song productions, hear how certain guitars sounds come through in production (he has admitted he loves listening to Rainbow for that reason), and so on.

Billy Corgan buys a piece of the Gold Coast

From the Chicago Tribune:

Billy Corgan buys a piece of the Gold Coast

Ten months after shbnmelling his Victorian painted lady mansion in Lake View for $1 million, former Smashing Pumpkins lead singer and chief songwriter Billy Corgan has paid $2.95 million for a recently renovated, historic six-room condominium on the Gold Coast.

After disbanding the Smashing Pumpkins, Corgan formed a new group, Zwan, which is playing three sold-out shows at the Double Door this weekend.

Through his tour manager, Corgan declined to comment on the purchase of the two-bedroom condo. His tour manager confirmed that the singer-songwriter recently has been staying at the condo while rehearsing for Zwan's current tour, but said the Chicago-area native ultimately intends to lease the condo in a 110-year-old building to someone else. The unit has an oak-paneled living room, reception room, balcony framed by granite columns, four fireplaces, walnut parquet floors and a large terrace.

Corgan has shown an affinity for vintage properties. After moving out of the more than 100-year-old Lake View home at 3448 N. Greenview Ave., which he owned from 1993 to 2001, Corgan temporarily stayed in a penthouse in the Haberdasher Square loft development, 728 W. Jackson Blvd., a former manufacturing building that dates to 1926. And in 2000, the Landmarks Preservation Council of Illinois awarded Corgan its President's Award for his commitment to historic preservation.

Since Corgan sold his Lake View home, one Smashing Pumpkins Web site reported that he has been living in Italy, but in interviews he has declined any comment on his permanent residence.

Singer Courtney Love, whom Corgan dated many years ago, just sold her loft in downtown Manhattan for $3 million after buying it for $2.6 million in January 2001, according to the New York Post. The loft is in the same building where rocker Lenny Kravitz just listed his own, five-bedroom, 7,000-square-foot, multilevel loft for $16 million, after buying the space unfinished in October 2000 for $8 million, the Post reported.

Love also recently listed her almost 3,700-square-foot Spanish-style house on Los Angeles' Westside -- which she bought last June for $3 million -- for about the same price, according to the Los Angeles Times. Love reportedly is looking for another house in the area because her five-bedroom house, which was built in the 1920s, is too small.

Ironically, Love told the Times last year that she sold a four-bedroom, 4,700-square-foot French country-style house on almost 2 acres in the Hollywood Hills -- which she had purchased from Ellen DeGeneres in 1997 for about $3 million -- because she was planning to spend more time in New York and actually wanted something smaller in L.A. She sold the Hollywood Hills home for $3.995 million in March 2001 to British businessman Mike Walley. Love's former Hollywood Hills house made the news in November 2001, after Paul McCartney's fellow Beatle George Harrison died. After Harrison's representatives gave a bogus L.A. address on his death certificate, the county's district attorney revealed in February that Harrison actually had died at Walley's house.

Rocker Tom Petty has paid close to $2.5 million for a three-bedroom oceanfront home in Malibu, Calif., according to the Los Angeles Times. Built in 1974, the house has three fireplaces, Malibu tiles and a courtyard with a fountain, the paper reported ... Fred Durst, frontman for the rock group Limp Bizkit, has sold a house he never moved into in Bel Air, Calif., for $3.7 million because it had "vibes that were not quite correct for him," according to the Los Angeles Times. Last fall, Durst bought the four-bedroom, 6,600-square-foot house, which was once owned by the Doors' Robbie Krieger and has a carving of the Doors playing on one wall, for just under $4 million, the paper reported. Durst recently bought a house with a sound studio in L.A.'s Hollywood Hills, and has listed that home for $1.4 million, the Times reported.

The only reason I listen to music is to satisfy my own need for hedonistic pleasure. So whatever.

Yeah, this, and I get the sense that Billy would be the type to want to try and absorb the "spirit" (zeitgeist, if you will) of those "golden era" recordings. To get inside the head of the artist, the attitude they were bringing to making the recording, the sense of what influences they were bringing to the table and what they wanted to say and the process they used to say it...

All those detailed things would probably mean a lot to someone who has been making music for a long time, has had commercial and critical success, and now is wondering where to go next. Especially since he has voiced cynicism in the past about Rock being dead or everything having already been done in rock etc... maybe he is simply looking for how John Lennon came up with novel ideas, what mindset he was in (other than stoned).

Funny you mention that, because Radiohead was at an Olivia Tremor Control gig back in '96 and Johnny Greenwood was hounding W C Hart about how exactly he was doing his on-stage guitar effects, he was so impressed.

Totally. Take any pitchfork review, it's overwrought and elaborate to the point when it makes any 4/4 handclaps Little Boots record seem like a Pink Floyd mixed with Genesis.

For example I bet they call that idiotic godawful forced strummy off-key song above a "psych pop".

Which is fun by the way how the use the word "pop". It's like "oh, pop was always a pejorative term, so we use it ironically for something sub-par that we like, hinting that it doesn't need to be dissected".

Which is fun by the way how the use the word "pop". It's like "oh, pop was always a pejorative term, so we use it ironically for something sub-par that we like, hinting that it doesn't need to be dissected".
You're kind of an idiot, aren't you?

It's mostly nothing personal this time. I remember you had a good point on many subjects, for example Machina production, etc.

But this song pretty much sums up everything that could be hated in 2000's culture (sans synthpop and faux-house music perhaps).

OK, well listen. Do you know anything about the Elephant 6 Recording Company? That is mainly what I listen to now, and has been since 2002. This is just one of those bands. This has nothing to do with Pitchfork--I haven't read that garbage for ten years. I don't even know what they thought of the new Circulatory System album. All I know is I loved it. It's fucking brilliant.

Also, I don't care about hipsters. Maybe I am one because I'm wearing a Neutral Milk Hotel shirt right now. Maybe I'm not because I just turned 30 in February. Either way, I don't care.

EDIT: Oh, you're not an idiot, but your comment was idiotic. To just label this band as "Hipster bullshit" is not really understanding what these guys are about. I posted a mediafire link to this record in another thread, just listen to it and give it a chance as a piece of music, rather than attaching whatever "hipster" images you want to attach it to first, you know?

To each his own, yes, but it seems everyone is writing this off just to be "anti-hipster" or whatever.

EDIT EDIT:
I'm gonna shoot myself in the foot here. I just googled it, and this is the Pitchfork review of it. They gave it an 8.1
Pitchfork: Album Reviews: Circulatory System: Signal Morning
...and that was the first I've read Pitchfork in ten years folks.
