*$750 on Amazon Marketplace
Let U be the set of all united sets, K be the set of the kids and D be the set of things divided.
Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

You are, of course, correct. But that's a sad excuse for Coan's behavior. And that behavior would be just as bad at your dinner party as anything that Googa has done. Probably worse.


i like the dinner party analogy, if you go far enough with it.

everybody at that party does not respond in the same way to googa. it's a matter of degree. some like him. some think he's entirely harmless. some are rubbed the wrong way, but no more than any other party guests might bother em, and they blow it off. then there are some who can't stand him and feel the need to be very vocal about it, repeatedly.

if yer a guest at that party, yer reaction to it all depends on where you fall on the scale. if a person doesn't think googa is THAT big of a deal, and that person listens to the can't-stander's repeated slinging, well, guess which one might be ruining the party? and if the can't-stander is not the one actually running the party or in charge in any way (regardless of constant claims that he represents some majority of party taste there)... isn't he just as guilty of not giving a shit about the humans around him?

don't get me wrong. i think coan does many groovy things on this board. but that doesn't mean at this particular party, he hasn't been acting like a grade-a overdone fucquenaut. degree. everyone's entitled to act like an ass around here, of course. no one needs anyone's approval to post or comment on posts. and googa at his worst is just as unreadable to me as coan at his worst. they can become entirely indistinguishable to me, at the core of it. like, ick, just fucquin get over it and quit dancing with each other. it aint like tryin to quit smoking, for fucque's sake. that's hard.

but what really nags under my skin the most: the idea that googa is asking to have repeated shit slung on him, just by his very presence, seemingly. just in posting CD titles. (i've known real cops who thought that way... talk about a fucquin neighborhood breaker.) i think that mentality says much more about the slinger than the target, at least when it's this pronounced and this regular. i just don't see any rational reason for it to be this way. just how many times are you gonna stand up at that party and yell, yer an idiot! yer an idiot! yer an idiot! what exactly is the point of that? does it feel good? who exactly are you gonna run off? how exactly are you making the party BCB better?

it's patently ridiculous to justify slinging shit on someone becuz you think you are somehow more entitled to do it, only to turn around and claim you are part of the taste panel who judges what smells BCB sweet. yeah, well, yer covered in shit, man. the bathroom is the second door down the hall on the right.

Of course, many of them are quite overt, holding John's coat and backing him up at every chance.


What rankles me almost as much as anything on this board is the snickering cronyism. There's a coterie of lager louts that backs up any and all bad behaviour on the part of their cronies on this board.

"Ideological battle" you say?

:shock:

Well I guess then that GoogaMooga would be on the side of the open music board. How then would you characterize Coan's side?

I'm perplexed myself, unless an asterisk has been left out.

People want to talk about this stuff more than they want to talk about music.

Unless it's Frank Zappa, of course. Or Yes.

Perhaps you'd take your own advice next time you feel the need to vent spleen about GM's harmless Pooterisms?

The fellow lauding the Icelandic wine wouldn't be the idiot either. Wine snobs have been duped time and again by label switching:

Pity, I thought you nailed it.

For my part, googa definitely brings out the worst in me for some reason. I didn't set out to attack him all the time, but after the sheer bulk of shitty music posts and crowing about finding the most common bullshit cds I just couldn't hold back.
