it looks like you're speaking tautologically when you ascribe the
nose-snubbing behavior to the artist in question axiomatically.  essentially
you're saying that "snobs is snobs".  i wouldn't debate that!

shoehorning this safe statement into a binary relationship ("snot-nosaed

nor proscribes nothing.  what if you just don't like the alternatives?
anecdotally, i still have a lot to learn about synthesis and modulation.
