    Big mistake! this guy obviously likes repetitive base beats going on & on & on, like a heartbeat on Angel Dust. His “music” just ruins the watching experience by being to distractive. It’s as if he’s trying to say “look here I am, look at me, don’t bother with the TV program, I’m much more interesting!”
