New Heights in Ambient Snobbery

I have spoken of my enjoyment of and experimentation with sleeping to the ambient sounds of certain things offered on Youtube. One day, I again found myself perusing the vast and baffling selection on there and I shared this particular finding with my longtime friend, Kevin. He and I had not discussed this interest of mine before, and I was delighted and then dismayed to find that he, too, has opinions about this genre of sound. He came at me with some pretension, sweet readers! Sure, that overwrought description wasn’t his own wording, but he DID quote it at me, and he even put in a “[sic]” note. Also the fact that he immediately thought of this track… are these tracks? No. I guess they are audio experiences. He probably had a dozen other youtube sounds that he also thought of, but this is the one we get.

And as an added bonus, you get to be exposed to two wonderful new sleepy videos! Truly, we are all #blessed.

This comic is called Kevin Has Opinions about Noise. A real chat between him and Amandoll. It starts out with him saying to Amandoll in quotes: "An exercise in sample manipulation, DWM draws exclusively from source audiogenerated by swinging a cheap microphone in front of a misfiring heating unit, itself congested with the fibrous dust of advanced decrepitude and exhuming a near death-rattle from its fractured internal respiratory systems."

Amandoll looks disgusted and says that its a new pretentious level of ambient noise, and Kevin defends it, saying it is good. He goes on to say, "Oh you like an oscillating fan? That's cool I guess. Anyone who's anyone listens to malfunctioning heater units."

Amandoll has been Judged.

I used to have a link here to his preferred masterpiece, the Malfunctioning Heater Unit on youtube. But now it’s GONE! I hope they took it down because they are going to come out with a descending Shepard tone remix of it soon!! Enjoy.
