Hee Hee! I couldn't be bothered to post this to everyone.
}first of all i would like to point out that the conversation between
}myself and Mr. Pound started in PRIVATE MAIL. where i come from, ,mr.
}pound, private mail stays private.
OK, you have permission to shred him.
}> believes quite strongly in her belief, mind you these beliefs are not
}> always shared by everyone(does this signify stupidity?). I realize
}are you trying to say your girlfriend has strong convictions? again, i
}am kind of lost...
I was too. To believe that someone could use the word believe or
variations on the word belief so many times in a sentence is beyond my
belief, I believe.
}> who liked them for the music and not because she is some stupid tinny
}> bopper, but now to be a Pearl Jam fan, you get treated worse than
}> being a lepper. It is so tempting to denie you liked them because of
}yeah a lepper colony with millions and millions of leppers.
I thought Leppers were Def Leppard fans. Now I'm really confused!
And Tinny Boppers must be people who listen to 50's rock on $9 AM radios??
}i would hardly say that her love of pj has
}ostricized her from the rest of society.
A process which must involve burying one's head in the sand??
}> pier pressure, but this happens to all bands who you like , but get too big.
}> If some band gives you a strong positive feeling than the music's important.
Now he brings the Montreal dockworkers strike into it. Boy is he confused!
}since when were pearl jam not a corporate rock band??? since when were
}they not huge and popular? i wouldn't think that they are any more or
}less popular or commercial than they were four years (?) ago when that
}shitty blues rock extravaganza that was "ten" came out.
Serious questions: Didn't they have some existence before the contract?
Not even a demo tape? Was Temple of the Dog originally a Warner (or
whatever label) release, or did it not even come out until after the
singer buddy was dead?
And I still have a fundamental misunderstanding of the whole "indie rock
snob" scene, being an admitted bandwagonesque jumper. I can accept that a
major label deal means that you are by definition not "alternative". But
does not being indie really mean that you can't be original or creative?
Can't you produce worthwhile music *and* sell it to the huddled masses?
Isn't it a shame if someone is producing great art but not letting the
world experience it because of some alternative idealism? If a tree falls
in a forest but only presses 500 copies, nobody hears. Please discuss in
100 words or less.
}defeating the evil monster catano. well jfuck you mr. pound, it didn't
Jfuck? That's a new one! Please explain!
}work. you broke the rules - if you had something worthwhile to say you
}would've said it to be, instead of plaguing the whole of sloan net with
Try Dristad Dasal Bist, it works for be!
}> p.s. I realize I will now be torn apart for some aspect of this letter,
}> but I will at least respect their opinion and will not make false
}could even talk to mr. pound, since it seems he knows exactly what his
}girlfriend is thinking. maybe he even does the thinking for both of
No, I suspect that Mr. Pound is not a "straight A student" and is
therefore defending his girlfriend because he knows she's smarter than him
and thus he worships her intelligence :)
}don't lie, no one put a gun to your head.
