OK, too much serious discussion, time for a joke:
Michael Damian Catano <mcatano\!/is.dal.ca> said
}yes, you're right, you can't avoid politics by not paying attention to
}them, but that is precisely my point. if enough people are acting or
}thinking thew same way it is politically important. look at sloan net,
}for example. the fact is, out of 200, only about 5 or 6 are actually
}contributing to this thread, and god knows how many are just hitting
}delete without reading anything. the fact that you and i and a few
}others are contributing goes to show that we are not among the general
}majority who are not interested.
OK, I propose a poll. I want all the people who are following this
thread to mail me, and those who aren't to also mail me. I expect
of course to have 200 mail messages in my mailbox on Monday Morning.
}you've got to use the forces and channels that exist already in order to
}make any lasting change. you've got to change things from the inside
}out, instea of trying to tear everything apart from the outside, because
}face it, if you can't get work from the inside, you'r never going to work
But when it comes to making music, if you have any integrity you
have to release your work independently rather than sign a record
company contract. Please explain this contradiction to me.
PS this was all in jest, I don't want a poll, and I do want the
discussion to continue. I don't understand it, but I enjoy it.
