(Thanks to Stereogum for the heads up on this one.)
Let me present a 10 minute BEP video that is about 10 minutes too long.
In any case, it is worth watching the intro skit. The irony of will.i.am discussing some new piece of future technology that would essentially allow computers to generate all the music, with no human input or "soul" as Fergie puts it, is just hilarious. OH THE IRONY!!!
Fergie asks, "so you're saying a machine can do anything that an artist of group can do?"
Let me answer that question for you Fergie.
"Yes. A machine can do pretty much anything you and your Peas have been doing for the last 1/2 decade or more. As a matter of fact, I have been wondering for a while if a machine has been producing your music. And I'm not talking about the major record label / mainstream radio / mindless entertainment kabal that has been making, promoting, buying (and nominating for grammys) your music. That machine is quite obvious. I think an increasingly bland-o-matic has been making your music for a while."
Most people should have tuned you guys out soon after "Bridging the Gap" was released. This is just further evidence of the devolution in progress.
Behold: the downfall of western civilization
