sorry to waste your time, feareless sloan netter, but somethings deserve
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. the mere fact that you decided to
"expose me" for thinking your girlfriend is a bubblehead says a lot
about you. i am forced to ask myself what ever possesed you to do this
stupidstupidstupid thing. but we'll talk more about that later...

maybe your girlfriend would be a better authority on "what she was trying
to say" than you would be. why are you telling me what she thinks? are
you that big a macho, over-protective lunkhead that you have to run to
your girlfriends defense at the first sound of trouble? maybe she is
quite capable of telling me what she was trying to say, and i think she
did that weeks ago on the radio. if she wanted to continue the debate
she can do it with me personally, she knows where to find me. if she
doesn't think that this little business needs anymore discussion (which i
would assume she doesn't - since she is not the one who wrote the letter)
it should probably just be layed to rest. i don't think she needs you
charging in on your white steed to save her from mr. Big Nasty Radio Man.
(that would be me =) )

yeah a lepper colony with millions and millions of leppers. at least
she's got friends to play with. pearl jam is one of the most popular
alternarenarock bands in the world. they sell millions of albums and
tour the world over and over. i would hardly say that her love of pj has
ostricized her from the rest of society.

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. they have always
been and always will be a corporate rock band - their fates are sealed.
the only people who really believe that pj were ever NOT a sell-out band
are the little kids to whom eddie vedder was their first exposure to
anything even remotely resembling "alternative music". they managed to
jump onto the seattle bandwagon and rode it to the hilt, all the while
convincing a genberation of youth that putting out your first album on
warner bros. internationally was a really fucking punk rock thing to do.
it's a sham, they are a crassly and masterfully marketed product - one
that has sold millions of units all over the world. thanks to suckers

pearl jam were never "cool" in the elitest indie way i think you are
implying it. unless you consider "spin" magazine and "rolling stone" as
really alternative sources of music news (guffaw!).
> should be about. Anyway I didn't write this to start a flame or cause
> any shit, I just thought I'd clarify a statement that was made that was
that is a big load of bull shit. the only reason you wrote this was to
pump up your pitiful male ego, so you could show off to young lorraine by
defeating the evil monster catano. well jfuck you mr. pound, it didn't
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
the witless juvenile ranting. i'm sorry to have dignified it with a
response, but the fact that you had the sheer audacity to take a private
thread of e-mail to the list has offended me to no end.

no false accusations were made by myself. if anyone really cares what
the hell went on (i assume no one does so i won't bother with telling
you) they can send me some PRIVATE mail, and i will fill them in. they
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

don't lie, no one put a gun to your head. the inly thing compelling you
to get involved in something that you had no business getting involved
with was your stupid little ego.
ps - if your friend lorraine has any desire to ever think for herself and
not let her "man" be her mouthpeice, she's more than welcome to call me.
i have some nice bikini kill records she could borrow.
who loves ya', baby?
ps - tlw, this one's for you!
