"I don't want to say musician unless if you can play an instrument."

YES! Oh dear lord usually Dan's antics dont affect me, I just laugh. But this one got to me. Im not even that into typical edm, dubstep, idm, house, etc style music, but if you're gonna sit there and tell me Flying Lotus, Tim Hecker, Tobacco, Death Grips, and many others aren't proper "musicians" just because a computer is integral to creating their art, we're gonna have to throw down Dan.

Throw. DOWN.

I mean, I agree with you 100% that a computer is an instrument but those artists you named all play traditional instruments on their stuff. Hecker plays guitars, church organs, pianos. FlyLo is a pretty skilled keyboard player and his last three albums have featured virtuoso musicians like Thundercat and Ravi Coltrane as well as string arrangements by Miguel Atwood Ferguson. Tobacco plays analog synths all over his stuff. Dude above already mentioned the fact that Zac Hill of Death Grips is probably the most talented drummer alive. I know your point is that their music wouldn't be possible without computers but Dan would just say "yeah but they aren't using the computer as an instrument, they're just using it to record 'real' instruments".

I think the best, most undeniable example of musicians who do not play traditional instruments of any kind is Autechre. They make some of the weirdest most complex music ever and they don't play any instruments, including midi keyboards. They use keyboards but its all sequenced from other gear.

Anyway, Dan says some dumb shit. Thats just Dan tho innit?

What kind of books are you into? Cos I'd make different suggestions based on whether you were into someone like Kurt Vonnegut vs someone like J.K Rowling.

I really don't understand peoples fascination with Star Wars on any level, and it makes me feel like theres something wrong with me. Didn't even like them as a kid. Glad people are excited, but I cannot imagine a world where I watch Star Wars by choice at any point in the future.

Well, I guess we're in agreement then. Maybe it'll be the most popular if it got a real English release.

A proper Mother 3 release outside of Japan would be amazing. I've never understood Nintendo's complete disregard for the franchise. A Mother collection on 3ds would be fucking great.
