Happy belated anniversary! Due to a glitch in the Matrix, we forgot to mark year number 6 since you first became a Sifter. The community wouldn\'t be the same without you. Thanks for your contributions!

Happy anniversary! Today marks year number 5 since you first became a Sifter and the community is better for having you. Thanks for your contributions!

Yes, for sure.

i don't feel a need to push down other people's videos, i just have a sense of frustration that inane, unfunny, bullshit is what people want and enjoy. does that make sense?

oritteropo says...

Two down votes would fix that at this point... if you don't mind fixing being a fairly long term project, I'll see what I can do about promoting your pqueue when I am in a position to do so.

Sifted is a fairly low bar though, getting a truly awful vid in the top 15 takes more effort.

hey man,
that was an awesome response to my query concerning the thrive trailer.
i discarded the video because i posted the full length video,so i was surprised to see your response.
my fear was that you may have taken my comment as a jab at you or even a defense for the video.

it was neither.

and to my pleasant surprise you were not offended.awesome..just awesome.

i always find the questions far more interesting than the answers.
peace brother.

my only point is that she's really talking about an ancient story archetype that isn't new or contained in the realm of contemporary pop culture. it's going to be a long time before we breed this meme out of our cultural DNA.

I don't think I get your point. Care to elaborate?
In reply to this comment by kir_mokum:
damsel in distress is still used and is usually sexist. gotcha.

You know what, I retract my earlier statement. On listening again in a quiet room, it has plenty of d'n'b, and I don't know why I initially got the impression that it didn't. Maybe I had the volume too low.

All right then. My revised statement reads that I didn't upvote because I didn't listen carefully enough. Sorry for the confusion!

p.s. My upvote is because after listening to it a few times it's started to grow on me, despite sounding a bit light on first time through.

what do you mean exactly?

In reply to this comment by oritteropo:
So can I call that tune the sub-genre of d'n'b with the classic d'n'b beat and structure, but without actually having much in the way of drums or bass?


oritteropo says...

[...]
I'll certainly check out your suggestions, and thanks for your replies Please keep posting more d'n'b, even if sometimes only the two of us watch the vid and only you upvote! I doubt that will happen often though.
In reply to this comment by kir_mokum:
well, d'n'b isn't defined by reese basslines and amens. that's the stereotype but it's a much, much more diverse genre. i assure you "madness" is a straight up d'n'b tune. check out good looking/looking good, creative source, early hospital, defunked, warm communications, soundtrax recordings, soul:r/revolv:r/signature. if you like that hive tune, you'd probably like some of seba's tunes or alaska or paradox or breakage or anything "drumfunk" (assuming you hadn't heard of them).
