The [Ninja Turtles] henchmen Bebop and Rocksteady have hijacked the musical genres for us just like the Lone Ranger hijacked the William Tell Overture for our parents.

Modest Musicalness, Redux and Expanded with Special Features

A short discussion of The Animal Collective will hopefully ensue once this is posted. I sit here at my desk listening to the album by The Animal Collective I bought a week or two ago. I have no idea what the title of the album is and WMP doesn't really seem to have a clue. I am trying to catch up on work that I should have finished by 5 on Thursday, but United decided otherwise. It is almost 11 pm on Thursday night and I am getting a little thick headed. I think the recent weather changes in DC have a bit to do with that, along with my poor sleep of the last week and the music emanating from my Standard Speaker Units from Dell. I am not really sure what is happening with this music, but I am willing to give a lot of replay until I condemn it. fulsome has that way on a person's taste in this areas.

I think that if The Animal Collective had been around in the 25th century, the crew of the Enterprise would have stopped the Borg by simply piping a transmission of this CD into the Borg cubes. This CD is an aural version of a Dada piece or perhaps the problem so complex math can not answer it. Fermi's Other Last Theorem?

PS If you aren't reading this comic, then you aren't cool.

I love Animal Collective almost as much as I hate Shoelimpy™

I thought Fermi would be funnier.

I don't know how appropriate dada is to describe the AC because I feel that there is a fairly earnest undercurrent. They might think music needs to get a little more primal and pulsing but it's the joy of teasing out signal from the noise that makes it such fun.

Yeah, that and mentioning dada makes me sound better than saying, I think I would get it better if I was stoned.
