RE: Shadow, not a comment on his music as I’ve not heard any, but his interview with wired seems like he’s floating on a protesting cloud without a base – or a well thought out perspective. Many points in his interview seem like presentations of straw-man arguments, essentially calling the internet an ‘entity’ which is failing ‘us’, etc..basically protesting techno-corporatism and mislabeling the internet as being ‘sold’ to people as a ‘savior’ in a spiritual sense… I’m not really a fan of that kinda nonsense.

I’m not leaving Chengdu til the 3rd though, so might check out his tunes on the 2nd and ignore the interview content and his positions on licensing. 😀
