Yes I am still around. I have just been busy doing that whole performing thing.
I was watching a magic video on a random webpage and decided to delve into the comments (never has their been a more wretched hive of scum and villainy than internet video comments). One sentance caught my eye. It also struck a chord with me because this was said by a non-magician.
"How is it that magicians/illusionists always have the worst taste in music... ?"
Well? What's your excuses magicians? I have a few theories.
The major one is that magic is a decade behind most art forms because that is where our influences tend to come from. Most humans tend to stick with what they know and aren't terribly open to new things like modern music, technology, etc. throw the stubbornness of magic into the mix and well... you know.
Odd are the real reason is that most of you just have really shitty taste in music.
