A friend once told me rap is twenty first century poetry. I don't personally like it, but I suppose a lot of people don't like poetry either. So, whatever floats your boat.

Found this video trying to use some dialogue from Interstellar as proof that the moon landings were a hoax ("There was a physicist involved with the movie so every line in it comes from his expert opinion!"). 99% of these conspiracy nuts are just funny to me but this one got me irrationally angry. Aside from the fact that this yokel is trying to coöpt one of my favorite movies ever to justify his position, it requires a special level of stupidity to not realize that the scene literally implies that people like this guy are holding society back.

I don't give a shite about rap's subject matter, it sounds awful.
I'm sure the lyrics are terrible as well, but that's a moot point.

Attempting to decipher your posts is getting rather tiresome.

I'm sad to say, it doesn't seem entirely surprising to me, either. This guy takes his comedy act rather seriously, after all. :P

putnam's claim is that your experience with the medium is lacking, and you are unfairly condemning an artform

moreover, he goes on to imply, your opinion lacks the weight of objectivity or the presence of any sort of argument required to be convincing

it is an opinion, to which you are certainly entitled, but with no reason in particular to agree with it and some reasons to believe it is not well-founded, it is an opinion that seems to him distasteful, and therefore it is worthy of dissent

this deciphering is not that hard man come on

In the days when Sussman was a novice, Minsky once came to him as he sat hacking at the PDP-6.
“What are you doing?”, asked Minsky. “I am training a randomly wired neural net to play Tic-Tac-Toe” Sussman replied. “Why is the net wired randomly?”, asked Minsky. “I do not want it to have any preconceptions of how to play”, Sussman said.
Minsky then shut his eyes. “Why do you close your eyes?”, Sussman asked his teacher.
“So that the room will be empty.”
At that moment, Sussman was enlightened.

He's saying it's freaking ridiculous to say that you know for SURE that all rap is awful, or at least the subject matter is as well as the lyrics. To say this for truth, you must've heard every single rap song ever.
I do not understand what was complicated about that post, but there.

Oh, are we still stuck on this?
The elements of rap music that cause it to be defined as "rap" (or hip-hop or whatever you prefer to call it) are the very things that make it sound bad, i.e. not good. If you took a rap song and removed the badness, it would cease to be a rap song and become something more akin to soul, funk, blues or some form of electronica.

I'm getting a strong sense of deja vu from that time you guys tried to convince me that I couldn't possibly dislike all manga/anime unless I had sampled absolutely every existing instance of the stuff. Except, of course, that this time I feel far more strongly on the subject and your arguments seem somewhat less than well-worded.

rap is not a genre

and wait you actually think that about manga

but like

i was actually going to use that as a comparison to show some measure of absurdity in your argument

but apparently you're pretty consistent on managing to dislike things that are so utterly inconsistent and broad that certain things within themselves are incomparable to each other?

Not so much as WTF, but mixed feelings:

Today I'm called to a posse comitatus for the Finnish Defence Forces. Citizen's duty and all that, but I'm not really much of a militarist.
