I like the way things are going.
Orbited, you make great points, and you're level headed. I like your approach - a listener not much concerned with whether or not something is or isn't something or other. That's exactly the approach I think we need to have toward this stuff.
Frindia, you have been ON IT! I wish I would have been there to see it all unfold!
So, what we have now is some great music, an ARG or two or three that may have ended (I have no clue on that part of this) and right now it seems like, at least for me, the thought is, "What happens next?"
Perhaps, the artist will come out. Clayton is here now, so there's that bit of hope and optimism that we actually CAN meet the artists behind some of this great music coming out.
I think there is a connection to Dan Fingerman. His other videos show lots of things that point to him being VERY capable of making such music, and he originally posted the thing. BUT, will he commit to answering whether or not he was involved?
And then, recently I had this thought: "Instead of saying 'BoC vibes', how about just calling it 'BoC', whatever it is, if it sounds like it's in the same vein?"
I'm going to go ahead and do this.
For the sake of example, see the next sentence. "Tycho? Yeah, totally Boards of Canada, man." "That one track by that artist that I can't find any info on? That's Boards of Canada. I don't care if YOU found the artist name and it's 'The Beatles', I'm telling you that it's totally Boards of Canada."
VHS Tape and Random Tunes? It's Boards of Canada. It ticks the boxes that I need ticked, it satisfies the insatiable thirst for new and interesting music...the ARG component seems right up a lot of people's alley, which is great. I suck at them but I am amazed by their complexity and the spirit of adventure they bring out of everyone (not everyone, just the cool people here).
I think the next step is to wait for something. Just a little bit longer...
