Best Composers (All Genres) Of All Time

You Scarruffites keep on coming even though I suspect you are one person.

I know it's an old comment but I look back and think to myself, 'schizophrenic, anyone?'

Greatest Rock & Jazz Artists (in progress)

The Residents need to be in the top ten (if not five), two 8's and a 9! They're the perfect response to Frank Zappa, geniuses without doubt. I see you have Not Available on your list, but I didn't see Meet.. or Eskimo - didn't like or just not heard? I recommend both, the former for its epic expositional suite and the latter as it sounds like they've crossed over with Jon Hassell.

What are your latest-found favourites?

Only just found the other L Bangs? I thought he was common knowledge? I think he's possibly the second best critic of rock music, although his aesthetic isn't as diverse as Piero's, for instance I couldn't imagine him talking too favourably on Robert Wyatt or The Residents (seeing as he tends to favour noise rock, punk aesthetic and free jazz).

Major upheaval soon; some additions, a few dropouts and major placement changes. It's almost too much to cope with.

Side note: this Magic Dragon interview is hilarious

Interviewer: Are you part of the cultural elite?
Piero: Yes

Ahh, he confirms our suspicions; he loves himself.

I love Adam so much I could almost murder him with a blunt shovel.

I don't know James, I just don't know. Is he the most lovable historian of all times?

Haha. Beatles lovers just wait for any excuse to say that Piero is wrong. I think they secretly like him: I mean, what's not to like?

Movie Log, 2009

You once said of Eternal Sunshine that 'Fellini wishes he could make a film this good' and regarding your comments on Synedoche, New York (which are also quite critical) gives the impression you don't like Fellini. However, on your greatest films list I seem to remember 8½ being ranked 5th, and I'm not sure I fully understand why (unless of course the list takes into account historical significance). Could you please explain?

New Album Log, 25th April 2009 Onwards

I've reviewed Art of Walking up there; learn to read.
^^ There was my semi-colon.

Yeah, I enjoyed some of it loads, laughed at other bits and found others...juvenile, to say the least.
