does the 13 hands tribal council of love and good music actually have 13 hands, love, good music?
A MONTCLAIR THYMES INVESTIGATIVE REPORT
yesterday someone called out a musician named “13 hands dalien / daniel mcbride (grammy nominee/world music genre)” for always mentioning about how he was grammy nominated, and the “13 hands tribal council of love and good music,” who we at the thymes are assuming is 13 hands himself, responded with a 2400+ word comment/Western European history study.
let’s look at how grammy nominations work by using wikipedia, since it is much easier to read how something is done without being interrupted by 13 hands’ 5-period ellipses points:
Record companies and individuals may submit recordings to be nominated. Nominations are made online and a physical copy of the work is sent to the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences. Once a work is entered, reviewing sessions are held, by more than 150 experts from the recording industry, to determine whether the work is eligible and entered in the correct category for official nomination.
ultimately, 13 hands was officially nominated early in the process. no one can take away the fact that he was nominated.
you can’t blame folks for thinking this 13 hands guy is a bit pretentious, since he always follows his name with the fact that he was on the first round of grammy nomination ballots 6 years ago. also, that professor title he usually adds onto himself is a bit misleading, as he’s actually an adjunct that teaches 1 credit yoga courses at montclair state university. that professor title alone assumes he has a phd, which he does not - if he did, we’re sure he’d be “grammy nominated doctor.”
he’s not necessarily wrong for adding this stuff, but we’re not necessarily wrong for finding it a bit delusive and outstandingly hilarious.
but he, or whoever his “tribal council” representative is, is totally wrong for writing a way-too-long and incomprehensible essay of nonsense in response to a tiny bit of criticism by an anonymous commenter on baristanet.
dear many-handed men: don’t ever do that, ever. i swear.
