I'm holding my shoulders.

If you're really worried, you could log onto the IRC server but not join the channel at first, register your nick, get a vhost, then join the channel.
That way, even if someone somehow was your mortal enemy secretly lurking as one of the regulars of the channel, you won't risk showing what internet provider you use.

Or just don't worry about it, who cares about your IP address being shown lol

canaki
May 6th, 2018, 04:31 PM
If the IRC server can't resolve(?) your hostname, it shows a part of your IP address instead of your host, but that's just a part of it, something that looks like ihw-[random characters].[random characters].[3 digits].[3 digits].IP so I think that's not enough information to people to track you down just from IP.

Realtalk that article is really bad and misinformed, though. It over-emphasizes music as being necessarily for a broad audience, and very particularly one that enjoys dancing. Just like blues has always been a musical form emphasizing collaboration, jazz has always been an ensemble style. Jazz and blues are really fun for musicians, because you play with and for each other as both entertainment and art form. Music doesn't have to exist for the sole purpose of appeasing wide groups of people that want to dance.

The article also has a very teleological, inorganic understanding of the development of (specifically, in this case; I can't speak for more broadly) jazz as form and genre. Jazz didn't unilaterally shift from one mode, to another, eliminating its descendants and predecessors as it went along; instead it branched out, with new styles emerging according to different popular tastes. Different types of jazz existed for different people; swing remained and still does, as did ragtime, bebop, bossa nova/Latin jazz, and even smooth jazz. Counter to the article, jazz isn't and never was a monolithic genre, defined entirely by one method of playing, popular or not.

It also has a very strange summary of the social/cultural history of jazz, seeming to portray it as typically 'new-fangled' music that "stuffy conservative types... and parents didn't like" because it was New and they were Old. The truth has much more to do with American race relations and (African-)American musical history (something virtually swept under the rug in the article) than simply being wholly 'music' without any cultural background.

Jazz is a varied, dynamic, organic genre and musical form that, as with anything else, one can enjoy or not. However, the problem in the article lies in how it attempts to rationalize an opinion about music into a material fact. It does so with faulty evidence, uncritical bias, ad a general desire to reach a stated end and bend truth to fit that mold. There's nothing wrong with simply saying, "I don't like jazz." That's an opinion, and it's fine to have. Unless you come from a family with deep traditions of jazz, the music itself doesn't have any impact on you, personally, and how you live your life. Enjoying jazz or not enjoying jazz is not a moral or historical stand to make. The deep, and not uncommon, problem is in trying to justify opinion through pseudo-academic evidence-building. This never ends well, because it isn't a critical, open-minded attempt at furthering knowledge, but a direct attempt at bringing facts together in a haphazard way that 'proves' a point already decided on.

If you think jazz is boring, you think jazz is boring, that's that. If you try to construct an academic-styled defence of why jazz is inherently bad and in doing so deliberately misinform people, you become the bad thing. It's really, really not good. Being open-minded, thoughtful, and critical is good.

Idk why you expected an academic article on a dude's kpop blog where he writes about things he hates and enjoys freely but kpop in general is the sort of scene where you either learn to not take everything so butt seriously or you drown in standom with little chance of recovery so his audience is on the same wavelength as him.

Okay first of all it's called THINGS KPOPALYPSE DISLIKES IN MUSIC, so that should make it clear enough that he writes his own opinions, and he's not here to educate anyone.

I can respect that, but that isn't how the article is positioned. It makes objective statements without reservation in-text of them being opinions and summarizes them as fact.


He's a dude with extensive musical background, both academic and performing, so his vocabulary in expressing WHY he doesn't like the things he dislikes is much broader, but that doesn't change the fact that it's his opinion and if anyone is high-horsey about it it's definitely not him, that's why I like reading his stuff.

Someone can have an extensive background and still be wrong, there're plenty of these in every field. Also, "Stravinsky’s dull modernist twaddle" is a pretty high-horsey and bizarre statement. Again, this article goes forward to the end of explaining why jazz is lesser as music, not as opinion. I can't speak for the history of KPop and jazz because that's not anything I've ever been curious about, and I trust the writer's understanding of that insofar as I lack knowledge to critically contradict it.


Idk why you expected an academic article on a dude's kpop blog where he writes about things he hates and enjoys freely but kpop in general is the sort of scene where you either learn to not take everything so butt seriously or you drown in standom with little chance of recovery so his audience is on the same wavelength as him.

I don't take things deadly seriously, but I do enjoy reading things critically inside and out of my actual job. More importantly, regardless of enjoyment or non-seriousness or fun or anything, this article is misinformed and makes unsupported statements of fact. People download their opinions a lot on the internet, you can't get away with that. With this sort of thing it's easy for people to read an article like this and decide to share the view expressed in whatever they're reading/watching even if it's not substantively supported and is just a pseudo-factual opinion. That leads to people spreading ideas and opinions uncritically as though they're absolutely correct, without regard for further evidence. This is a problem in published writing too, for sure, but the internet exacerbates these things.


And where did he say it's a monolithic genre he mentions like at least five different subgenres??

"By the 1960s, rock and pop music was moving into all sorts of new directions that actually made some degree of musical sense (plus a few that didn’t), meanwhile jazz was well and truly masturbating itself to death as it had mutated into “free jazz” where they didn’t even have proper chords and structure anymore" is a chiefly relevant example: contrasting rock/pop as evolving, becoming new things, with jazz which - allegedly, here - was not. This is another thing that can be noted as being factually incorrect by bringing into the argument Latin jazz and bossa nova.

I'm not writing this because I'm Serious and Upset on the internet, I'd probably be playing video games or something kinda dumb and inconsequential if I wasn't typing this. I don't get upset at things so much as I get sad at misinformation. Regardless of the title of the blog or article, in its language and structure this article positions itself as being factually authoritative. I've pointed out how it isn't, because being open-minded and critical of things you read is more valuable than just accepting them. If it's an opinion it's an opinion, there's nothing wrong with that. If you say, "I really think jazz got pretty stagnant and didn't go anywhere as a genre" then that's okay because you establish the perspective (yourself) and the proceeding relativism of the given statement.

I'm writing this because I'm a fucking academia nut nerd and also I like helping people better understand things and avoid misinformation.

It actually is one of their best.

Really? Off the top of my head, I'd put "Planet Earth", "Come Undone", "Ordinary World", "Hungry Like the Wolf", "Rio", and "A View to a Kill" ahead of it.

I'd like to point out that it was the so called barbaric peoples coming in from the east that drank wine straight up. Romans attributed their bloodthirst to it. Roman drink of choice was the bevanda. Wine and water.
