Re: How come pop music never comes up here?

Part of the reason is that this list is composed mostly of people
for whom the word "Colonoscopy" has taken on a profound
and unwelcome relevancy.

As the father of two teenagers, I am exposed to hazmat levels of
pop music.  Some of it is quite good, some of it makes me want
to set myself on fire.  None of it is what most people here would
call looping, it is more sample manipulation than a live
performance technique.

The "live looping" vs..I don't know "dead looping" debate comes up
here all the time.  I don't really care, I enjoy both.  But the bias
here is certainly toward loops created live rather than molesting samples.
