are actually saying, which makes you even more superficial than your previous
pseudo-revolutionary garbish-grammar would imply.
If you took the time to read the various mails posted to this list on the topic,
you would notice that there's actually been some arguments presented, and that
the reason most of us disagree with the article is that the entire premise of
the concept of the mentioned concert seems beyond the reviewer. Sending a
reviewer that doesn't seem to like sometimes atonal, sometimes free-flowing,
sometimes even noisey music to a concert featuring these very things might be an
interesting sociological experiment, but it's not really interesting (for me) on
a musical level (unless, of course, you think that every arty experience is
purely sociological, but I won't offend diskonos sensible fucking ego by going

integrity and integrity only you would find yourself honouring the integrity of
all the Daniel Bells of the world just because their bell curve "calls it as
they see it", which is just as one-sided as what you are accusing the "pious
fucks" on this list for being.
The discussion this time wasn't about integrity, but about relevance; integrity
is well and good but means microscopically little if what you're actually saying
is just crap or beside the point (if you accept that such a thing as "a point"
even exist). Open your eyes a little wider next time. Eyes wide shut. You agree
with Maddy ('s integrity) because it fits your quasicountercultural attitude
that dictates you to oppose everything supported by more than three people. What
does that say about your integrity?

are talking about. You would notice if you actually read it. Don't expect The
Guardian to cover it. It's quite a big mainstream newspaper, remember? And once
a mainstream newspaper decides to cover the margins you know exactly what
happens. Be very glad it ain't so, unless reterritorialization gives you some
kind of masochistic satisfaction.

The Wire team can object to Rob's suggestions. Rob decided to put Scanner on the
cover all by himself. Rob is the big bad Ulf.
Would it be better to not put him on the cover because he knows him? It would
still be within the same either/or you are trying to construct.

masturbatory as the next wavefield of aesthetic interest desperately trying to
penetrate the fabrics of social discourse. Putting the diskono web address in
every mail would count as masturbatory in many circles, which I'm sure you are
aware of. Not that you should remove it. Just be aware that you're playing a
game just like the rest of us, even if your game involves writing fuck with big
letters. You are one of the blind revolutionaries. Which one-eyed man is leading
