    I love Chris so much! Brilliant guy. He arranged the horn quartet in the song "Afrikaner Barista." I wish he was a full-time member of our band!

    I think the original poster is a bit confused on this. Asian is the term you use when referring to people. But "oriental" is perfectly fine when referring to objects. There's nothing offensive about it. It's offensive whe…

    Also, I described the monome as "a zen koan in physical form," which is maybe a bit over-poetic or hyperbolic, but I was having a hard time describing it succinctly. - c
