I have a friend, let us call him DJ JD, who regularly and generously provides me with 1) the latest hippest music reviews, and 2) amazing stories from his law practice.
Today I received a delightful missive combining both, which I have received permission to share below.
New Single: This morning’s conference call (feat. Daft Punk)
Review: I suspect that the blatherskite du jour (and nominal presenter on the call), having determined (as I had) that this meeting would be a waste of time, decided to recoup the otherwise lost time by taking a taxi (or, likely as not, “a car”) across the city during the same time slot as the call.
As a result, I infer, he was talking on his (smart) phone, and (I further infer) failed to lock the screen, meaning that every time the car went over a bump or he nodded his head, he hit a button on the touch keypad.
So his presentation came out, as often as not, as “And when buying data transport BEEP between sovereign international zones BEEDLDY BOOP one must take care that net protocol conversions BEEP BEEDY BEEP BEEDY remain consistent under the BOODOOBEEPBOODOOBEEP relevant frameworks”
OVERALL RATING: 7/10. On the whole I thought the mixed media and “found sound” approach was a clever commentary on the banality of white collar work. Nevertheless, I had to dock some points as I felt that it lacked the cohesiveness of recurring motifs or at least a unifying theme (to wit, a bass line) to truly be evaluated as music.
