What are some things that really bug you?
Things that genuinely piss you off?

I thought it would be nice to have a thread to vent about any little annoyance, no mater how big or small.
Any and all complains about the world around you are welcome here!

Old one reached bumb limit I think.

>I think that if people are exposed to better music when they're growing up and music appreciation is part of their education, they wont choose to listen to mutilated music samples with somebody half-singing, half-whining put on top.
Being exposed to and subsequently being able to reflect on and appreciate traditional music is entirely dependent on the listener. Free will determines what genres of music people gravitate to because the quality of a particular song is a matter of personal opinion. I listened to a few songs from Yousuke Yasui. I wouldn't classify his works as bad music, but they do absolutely nothing to my heart rate or emotional state like a trance or any high-BPM genre song would. The songs "sound neat" and that is the extent of it, nothing more, nothing less. Granted, I don't typically listen to VGM outside of the games they're featured in. What I heard doesn't deviate from other songs I've overheard in JRPGs and the like. I enjoy my DJ-produced, spliced together, mutilated songs because I'm able to close my eyes and mentally synchronize with the music.

>Just to clarify, by sampling I mean taking audio clips from somebody else's music and shoving/butchering it into your own.
>If they call themself DJ something, they're admitting that they just splice together shit so normalfags can grind to it in nightclubs.
Okay, so it's still eighty-five percent of all electronic music you're choosing to avoid. You're restricting yourself to only ambient works and videogame soundtracks. I'll post three random songs that fail to meet your criteria.

Yeah yeah, everything is subjective, there's no such thing as educated taste. This thing that anybody could hack together is just as good as something which requires hard-work, creativity, learning and extensive practice. I've heard it a million times already. It's bs.
>they do absolutely nothing to my heart rate or emotional state like a trance or any high-BPM genre song
A fast tempo is pretty much the easiest way to make a piece of music "exciting". It's kind of like how bad dramas rely on excessive crying, killing off cute kids and amnesia. Fast tempo is just a tool in the toolbox, it's not something that should characterize an entire genre. It's easier to appreciate musical development and intricacies when you've learned to pay attention to those things.
>Okay, so it's still eighty-five percent of all electronic music you're choosing to avoid.
Most of anything is shit. I avoid most of all movies too. Whatever might be good in those tracks comes from the samples and just listening to the source material would definitely be more enjoyable to me because it wasn't muddled and cut up by some swaggot on their macbook.
>You're restricting yourself to only ambient works and videogame soundtracks.

Personal opinions are not facts. There are musical compositions that are universally accepted as works of art and being culturally significant by academic sources. Despite this, if someone chooses to listen to some SoundCloud freelancers music over the music from a critically-acclaimed artist, they are neither right nor wrong for having that opinion. Debating music is more along the lines of debating historical events rather than debating science or mathematics.

I won't disagree with you on the point that utilizing a fast tempo is taking the easier route during songwriting. As a matter of personal taste, I don't feel that it's necessarily a drawback if an artist chooses to go that route. Most electronic music I listen to is in the range of 180-200BPM. The absolute lowest I can usually stomach is around 130BPM. I alternate my focus on each instrumental layer while listening to a particular song. I'm not sure if that is what you mean by appreciating the development and intricacies of a song, but that is my interpretation of doing so.

>Note that all of my examples are electronic music, convey a different mood and do not use samples.
Yes, all of your examples fit the definition of electronic music and convey specific moods. The examples from the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure OST are hacked together in my opinion. First Bomb fits your description of "mutilated music samples with somebody half-singing, half-whining put on top". I enjoyed listening to the examples from the Death Note and School-Live! OSTs even

Right and wrong has nothing to do with it. People's choices and tastes are effected by their education.

I'm talking about melody, harmony and ornamentation.
>First Bomb fits your description of "mutilated music samples with somebody half-singing, half-whining put on top".
There's neither samples nor singing in First Bomb. The type of singing I was talking about is something you can see in anything Joji makes for example. Using audio of someone shouting is not sampling. Even if you didn't enjoy it, the ticking bomb motif, shouting and theme is memorable and successfully conveys a specific mood. It also incorporates Kira's music motif, as did one of the other Jojo tracks I posted. Most importantly, it's all original. Iwanami Yoshikazu most likely came up with Kira's motif, the melodies, and how things develop over the course of a track. The was no previously existing music he stole from and just edited. Making music "from scratch" like that, or mostly from scratch like using somebody elses' theme in a fugue, requires a hell of a lot of learning and work.

In this climate? No. It really only hurts your movement in a way as well. I don't think the US ever introduced proper lock downs anyway but here they did and for many it really smarts to see people on the street protesting and then a few days later to be locked down for a fortnight. I'm not going to name names but there are movements here that have been increasingly angering the average citizen by doing things like this and by blocking traffic and I don't think it helps there cause.

It's simply irresponsible.

I'm from California. Our mayor announced a "lockdown" but no one really knew what it meant, so everyone took it to mean we should buy guns and TP. We had a mandatory curfew for one night, but that was only because of the partly unrelated riots. A lot of businesses were asked to close, but enforcement is pretty poor to say the least. Due to a horrible system (intentional or not) in which people are punished by being made to pay fines, those with a lot of money don't need to obey any of the politics if they don't want to and it doesn't hurt them much. In some cases, businesses stand to earn so much in profit they can stay open and pay fines as part of the operating costs. An example being a gym my dad has become obsessed with (I make fun of him for having a crush on the owner), Said gym had it's power shut off by the city, but they installed a solar system, they were made to pay $1000 a day in fines, but being the only gym in the area still open they were making four times that a day. The city also cut off their water but no one seemed to care.

I was talking about that with someone over irc just last week, mainly about how dead it was even when it launched, and that the Japanese players would always freak out and run away from English speaking players. I remember it had a few nice colabs, like with Navel, touhou, and KEY. I feel like it was a bit ahead of it's time. Something like that would be much more popular these days now that we actually have not only a use but a need for virtual hang outs.

It was very ahead of its time. It's also interesting in that it was something that was cult in both the west and Japan, you don't see that very often aside from maybe furrydom. I guess there is VRChat but that has kind of a weird connotation about that in the west with the dreaded ironic weeb label being put on it and all.
Yeah, it sounds nice, reading about the islands and whatever else info there is on the english-speaking internet is both interesting and wistful at the same time.
I suppose Mabonigi was filling the same niche with more stuff to do, just without the IPs.
In general, MMOs are kind of sad, considering that most of them will eventually die, and while most do get private servers, they are usually not the same as it was during live.

In their defense, motorists can be assholes regardless of your vehicle but their recklessness can cost the cyclist their life. It probably only makes them angrier to know that motorists would react with annoyed dismissal for endangering someone instead of at least feeling sorry about it. Besides, you've already had other anons complaining about cyclists in the thread made for cycling, why do you need to complain like nobody's on your side?
