Re: FaceBook and vidos + Quadropede and "good" looping

That's kind of a ridiculous position. More importantly, and I'm no expert 
on copy write law, but I can tell you that of the common services out 
there and based on passed peeks into the license agreements back when I 
cared more, Facebook may own that content once you post it there. The 
other's may too by now, I don't know, these things shift, but it's 
something to be aware of.

> I just enjoyed Quadropede a LOT!

I thought of a new thing to say about them that helps make the point I 
sometimes, like now, feel compelled to make here for the sake of 
philosophical conversation (and because it bothers me to hear feedback 
without specifics...) a different way of putting it as regards that 
delicate balance act of looping and how "good" it the final product really 
is... looping must be wielded like a weapon or a tool... active rather 
then passive. When it becomes too passive it runs the risk of failing as 
something I, at any rate, actually want to hear. Anyway, Quadroped 
definitely does that well. Active, intentional use looping. Like how their 
2nd song starts as a minimalist song would, at least with the guitar, but 
that's just a starting point. They don't get stuck there. (I know, then 
its not minimalism, you say, but it's that SOUND and that's what is 
awesome about minimalism at its best, so just take that part, which is 
what they did.)

Clearly I don't want to work this afternoon so I am waxing philosophical. 
Hopefully someone finds it interesting or useful. Apologies if not. Back 
to work I go.
