    even "art" is pushing it, i'd call it a bad joke gone too far. He was probably having a bad day on the writing front and just thought, "why even write, why not just sell silence, people are dumb enough" and 4:33 was born. If I ever find someone with that song on their ipod they will be impaled upon my jackson at record speed.

    my problem with everything you've been saying is that you're like Stace in his defense of his freewill thesis: you define your own version, and then pass it off as the same thing we're debating. your version of music. your version of the word progressive, your version of prog. basically, you're arguing via your own opinion, which cannot be supported because it doesn't translate.

    earlier i called this equivocation. let's give an example: if i say 'blue' means a particular shade of electromagnetic radiation in the visible spectrum, i cannot then use that definition of 'blue' to describe an emotion termed 'blue'. same word. different meaning. in fact it's actually a different word with the same spelling. there may be a relationship between the two words (in this case, the feeling of sadness we describe as 'blue' is associated with the color because of certain aesthetic symbols and ideas) however this relationship again does not imply equality. there are cases where 'blue' does not fit the other 'blue', and vice versa. the reason the two share the same spelling is because one was named after the other, when people discovered (or created) the connection between them for those cases they were looking at. you're doing this with 'prog'/'progressive' and now with 'music'/'music'. it's a logical fallacy and i'm done even replying to it.

    You should have finished him off when you had him in the foot-lock Kenneth.
