The ultimate troll?
Quote by L2112Lif
I put a ton of my capital into SW Airlines... The next day, THE NEXT DAY these nutters fly into the WTC. What the hell? Apparently no one wanted to fly anymore, and I was like "What gives? God damnit Osama, let me win a fuggin' game!"

Maybe you should tell people who he is or what he's done...

I'm gonna google it, but honestly.
You don't know John Cage?

You've never heard of John Cage?

He innovated the shadow kick. What's not to like about him.

No, he's very honest in what he does. I may not like or agree with it, but he's not trollin'.

Sure, he's come back to life over a million times but Shang Tsung is a bigger troll

I think that he was that pretentious in earnest.

As soon as I read the thread title these 3 exact words came into my mind.

I wasn't sure if he was referring to Mr. "4'33" or someone else.

the son of a bitch should be shot.
The illegality of cannabis is outrageous, an impediment to full utilization of a drug which helps produce the serenity and insight, sensitivity and fellowship so desperately needed in this increasingly mad and dangerous world.

Also, I figured that I should add that the performance of "as slow as possible" will be hitting another note on the 5th of August.

Sigh... I really like some of his prepared piano pieces and I think they really set the stage for the prepared guitar pieces that came later.

But everyone is always like "OMGLOL 4:33 LOLHAHAH IM DUMB"
#25
No trollin'. I mean sure 4'33 is funny, but I do like the idea of it. He wanted people to listen to their surroundings.

I have a couple of his sonatas where he plays a prepared piano, they're kinda cool.

This thread is as terrible as music, which sucks balls.

I have no idea at all who John Cage is. In fact I spent 10 minutes just staring into the thread title wondering if it's that actor. After the 10 minutes I finally remembered that that's Nicholas Cage.
EDIT: I remembered hearing about him in Music Class, when I saw the 4'33" video. But we just mentioned him, nothing more.


Gozd in gora poj,

uboga gmajna, le vpup, le vkup,
le vkup, le vkup z menoj,
staro pravdo v mrak tulimo,
da se pretulimo skozi to zimo

Walden did 4'33 before him (although it had a different name) and it most certainly was trolling.
The UG Awards exist only to instill me with existential doubt.


For me, the 60's ended that day in 1978...

Willies. Fuck the lick and fuck you too.

He can come back when people have rioted because of his music.
