    Trolling for arguments again.

    I prefer polyrhythmic death metal polka myself.

    The algorithm selected actual genres based on user data from the Shazam song recognition app.

    Now that is funny. I doubt many guys use Shazam to figure what hard bop song they a re listening to.

    Yeah, now that looks like a far left liberal alt right joke with some papal pedophilia mixed in all hovering around a non wall next to Alissa Milano, Michael Moore and Kathy Griffin while they slice and dice a zombie by a fire on the Rio Grand as a roving band of natives take to the water to claim new found sandwiches.
    That ought to be enough to end this sadness.

    Explains why Cobham once confided why he turned down the Lawrence Welk polka gig for the Mahavishnu gig.

    Air drumming is by far the hardest....no matter how well I play, there is nothing but silence!

    Yeah, but Paul Humphrey went from Jimmy Smith the Lawrence Welk polka gig (which blows my mind!).

    All I can say about the list is that none of those algorithms have been to Bulgaria.
