I've been using this style for my avatar on various sites over the years now. Is it now in vogue??

You copies Coil, or was it Swans?

Phoney!!!

mschreiber 13th February 2013 10:59 AM

10 years ago it was all about squares, now it's circles. if you change your avatar into a six dimensional spiral, you will sure be en vogue or 'ahead' for the next years too.

didnt autechre do it too?

Blunt 13th February 2013 11:04 AM

Not sure where you guys have been but its all about triangles in the hipster scenes of house, bass music, trap and indie. Alt+J being the most popular to come to mind.

possibly so ahead of the curve that it all came full cirlce...oh wait...a cosmic black hole circle logo... Your honour...my client existed before the wheel... physics don't play a role here... he invented trigonometry. good luck with that!

mschreiber 13th February 2013 11:06 AM

right about autechre, it's on the album art for 'oversteps'. caribou's 'swim' and gonjasufi's 'a sufi a killer' comes to mind too.

Why don't any modern analogs do circle waves? Square and triangle are so overused in electronic music. I mean, synth manufacturers are cutting corners left and right, but no circle osc?

If you look very very closely your circle is actually made of straight lines, the other guys might but I can't see it.

Technically, you are behind the curve!

Nah, it probably just has to do with Jung's concept of the collective unconscious and its archetypes, in which the circle represents the ultimate unity of personality or "self". gooof

Circle Jerk

pinkerton 13th February 2013 04:31 PM

How can you be ahead of the curve of a circle is nothing but one giant curve?mezed

Speaking of triangles, has anyone noticed that music video directors are now trolling Illuminati conspiracy theorists by putting superfluous triangles in their videos? kfhkh

My red circle is better then yours. Than what? freshflowe

peter_martin 13th February 2013 08:23 PM

Circle gets the square, its been around for a lot longer than the internets.



Brocef, as you can see, this Christmas 87' episode has a billion incantations of it.

So....

This stuff is old hat, totally totally old hat.

Social networking is swimming in prime-time networking's wake.



Seriously.
