Some of these messages I get on My Space. People involved with Van's Warped Tour(!) I don't have anything in common with that kind of frat-boy fake-punk crap! Punk is dead, period...

Bat Chain Puller: HUGE disappoint!

Read this book by Kurt Loder not so long ago. A book that promised much but was just reprints of articles from Rolling Stone everyone's read already. So much for a bitter critique of rock music dating around 1990. Only thing good about it is one essay about jingoism -- gee, things haven't changed, have they?


BTW, doing research on Max Martin, the guy who singlehandedly ruined pop-music. Get aload of his soulless factory-cum-studio site:

Hey Bobby Steele, I just KNOW you read my blog. Maybe you should hire Max Martin as another perverse stunt like you pulled with the Church of Satan and David Peel? But I bet 'cos you're just a flat-broke cripple ya wouldn't have the money, would'ya?

Dipshit Kfir Alfia, listen up!

So much for security!

At the Bush airport. (Natch!)

Bright Lights, Dark Shadows

I have just read Carl Magnus Palm's recent book about ABBA (name of the title above) with a keen interest. Maybe it's just memories of my 70's childhood hearing songs such as "Dancing Queen" and curious as to what "dark shadows" existed in such a group. Much of this is written about the business end of the group, which would bore some ABBA fans I suppose but it gives an angle to the story of a pop-band from the unlikely place of Sweden, mostly known previously for schlager music and what's leftover from the country's pre-Christian past in the form of folk. Imagine how impossible it was to export such music outside of Europe let-alone Sweden itself, then imagine trying to make something more in the line of Western pop-music, the results of which weren't always successful. This was a group that formed from playing folk songs at a private get-together, but it wasn't all fairy-land dreams-come-true, with impending relationship breakups and conceited mismanagement...

Indeed this tale is very much the "be careful what you wish for" kind. In the book there is revealed the conflict between Polar Music's Stig Anderson and the left-wing, wilfully amateurist Music Movement. I'm pretty sure the humorless likes of Conservative Punk would sneer at something like the Music Movement and would hope this tome would reaffirm the success of crass Capitalism. But that's not to be. Poor man Anderson becomes rich and then increasingly unhealthy as well as unhappy, and his cash-cow ABBA's success was never gonna last, no matter how good the music was.

There's also more about how the cynical likes of Stock, Aitken and Waterman and (ugh!) Max Marten took the sound of ABBA as the base but then speeding it up and taking the life and the melody out of it, leaving only pounding headache-music any geek with a cheap techno sequencer could make. Truth is if ABBA didn't have those Euro-folk roots and a gift for harmony and melody and that certain something that clicked and gave something to remember and (perhaps) cherish, they would've been long forgotten.

Military recruitment and sexual abuse

Can the Bush Administration do ANYTHING right?

Of course they did show...

Looks like the killer of Jon Benet Ramsey has been arrested(!)

After 10 whole years! A total mystery of how it happened, but I'll bet we'll know pretty soon now. Turns out a teacher was the killer... Anyone remember how Jon Benet sang "I'm Jon Benet Ramsey" like she was pretending to be a pop star? The free CD that came with Waitress by Peter Sotos, and even the CD that came with Proxy come to think of it, had that clip looped for a 10 minute duration. If you've read Selfish, Little you probably know why too... And the wait for the new Sotos book gets agonizingly longer...

Anyways, and I said this before, it still perturbs me how Jon Benet was sexualized by her supposedly X-tian and proper father. Like it exposed how perverse X-tianity is despite its so-called moralism. By the grace of God he hath turned his daughter into a slut and acheived success, only to lose her to a perverted teacher. By the grace of God is that what these Bush-loving X-tians and their beliefs only really amount to?

Vincent Gallo: no Warhol

Just proves what I think of him. Just a weak hippy/yuppie musician...

Some good news

Robert Jones may be a fuckhead, but at least HE knows the truth about Bush... I'd be happy if ALL con-tards like him would drop Bush.

Just to think that all those con-tard scum were so smug about their support for Bush. Now that Bush is revealed for what he really is, we can mock them for not choosing a better candidate. Because they all deserve it...

Savagery, AmeriKKKan style,,1839522,00.html?gusrc=rss&feed=12

Makes me think of a short film I saw about political prisoner clowns. No, I'm not being sarcastic -- these were clowns about to be executed and the main one pretended to be joyous until the very bitter end, and when he was shot the expression on his face betrayed all the anger. "We shall all be free" as the song went...

Well what disgusts me is not the attempts to supplant my own freedom, it's just how arrogant people are. It could very well be from the Left as well as the Right, sure. Frankly I'd like freedom from all those loudmouthed, arrogant pro-Bush types. They are the most irritating filth on earth. Think they're so superior over me, think I cannot be happy. Ha!

Happier news: People Power!

These are the kind of stories that give me hope. Is it naive? Stupid? As misanthropic as I am, I still have that part in me that wants to believe man is basically good.

Usually happens at high-security prisons

...of course.

What else is old?
