So I'm still trying to figure out how to get this stupid blog shit to work the way it's supposed to...maybe this will stick.

I hate the internet. How odd is that? A meduim with the potential to connect every person on the planet, a global marketplace capable of offering me almost any product or service imaginable...this is evil. Well, not really. Maybe I'm just a little jaded. Have you read "McWorld vs. Jihad"? Don't let the title fool you, it's about economics/politics. Good read. Kinda dry though.
I miss the fact that once upon a time, you had to talk to people. Typing words at folks around the globe is cool, but I know the kind of impact I have on people in RL and it's hard to bring that across in cyberspace. Body language, facial expressions, and vocal tone are the majority of communication, and this medium takes all that away. The average person barely skims what they read (I'm guilty of doing this too!) and we only half listen to what others tell us (cuz we're so busy waiting to say what ever it is that buzzes around in our craniums that we just don't really LISTEN), so how am I to communicate effectively with my fellow humans?
If you tell me the sky is blue and I disagree, am I crazy? U might think so, but I'd have one question for you: what is the sky made of?
RZA said on the Wu Forever cd that most won't understand because they were not meant to. What's your percentage?

Maybe it's just me, but I feel RZA is a hell of a producer.

He shaped a unique concept of ideas with a group many thought was WAY too large and forced it down the throat of the media. If one were to compare some of the Wu's early work to what's being put out today it would make one wonder if the kids today have suddenly gone retarded.

As a producer I've seen RZA criticized by some saying that he hasn't been the same since the IRONMAN/Wu Forever era, but I say that he's changed as a person and his music reflects it.
RZA went from bass-heavy funk and R/B samples over kung-fu themes to composing his own music and incorporating a whole new suite of instruments, simultaneously recreating his signature sound and branching into something new.
Timberland and Dr. Dre have both evolved over the years (and they are considered "A" list producers by most) and so did RZA.

In short, let the man do him and if you like it support the Wu and stop crying about the "good old days". All things change in life.
