also, this pretentious bullshit...yeah, we just like to make like we're down with black people. every fucker on the board is that shallow. slimy little cocksucker.


My feelings on Parliament/Funkadelic have little to do with my feelings about imposed multiculturalism; that argument was runoff from the "Obnoxious Bumper Stickers" thread brought about by Mark Hansen.

fuck you, ya little shit.

here's the deal, pretty simple: good music equals good regardless of anything. good is good. funkadelic is good. if you don't get moved by the song "maggotbrain" you're a cynical little shit who's head is so far up his ass he's fucking deaf anyway.


I didn't pin you for a believer in absolutes.

It's maybe colon deep.

parliament, a different band: why are they good? for me it's as simple as party music. you can get up and dance, sit back and drink, drive around with the windows down in the summer, clean your house, and feel good in general. if you don't like parliament, it's clear you don't want to feel good.


Hell is other people and a playlist that, eventually, makes its way to an extensive Parliament collection.

anyone who chooses to listen to these two groups has not had a goddamned thing forced upon them.


I already ironed out this misconception.

anyone who thinks that we who have good taste force our good taste on another under the reason "multiculturalism" is a fucking racist.


Solid reasoning here.

you probably don't like james brown, motown, or stax either you ignorant little cunt.


I made it clear that I don't like James Brown in the "indie rock confession" thread.

I don't listen to Motown or Stax.

get fucked.

seriously, get fucked. go out, get some.

you might find you like funk after all, once you understand it, virgin.

If only I could push my life into a post coital status, maybe I would then be able to lead a happier life.

you know, there was a book i read, a book by a sound biologist who related things ape to things human. in one book he compared zoos to cities. a damn fine read.

anyways, he said that apes in a zoo create problems to solve and related such issues to problems human in a sound fashion.

you invent your own issues to make yourself seem more interesting than you are.

you probably could get fucked, but why dissolve what you believe makes you interesting.

twerp.


honestly though, i believe your nerblybear. on top of that, i believe you enjoy the attention you get by being a twat. i should start ignoring you again, and the board should follow suit. air your neuroses elsewhere.

There's no doubt in my mind that people create issues to resolve them, or even to leave the unresolved.

You're mistaking irony for honesty, in some instances; though I'm not exactly sure what other neuroses you're referring to.

You're free to believe what you like. I honestly don't have anything against you.

I'm not sure whether you're trying to insult fly or Heliotropic, but either way it failed.

You mean a song which openly and directly and shamelessly bites from Parliament for five minutes and fifty seconds?

Do you only listen to funk if it has a white guy in front of it and people pretend it's by a rock band?

Do you listen to the music you listen to?

[Side comment: I would fucking love to hear Parliament/Funkadelic cover "Born Under Punches." They'd add the low end meat and treble saturation that the song is begging for. And then a raspy George Clinton drawling out "I'm a tumbler, I'm a government maaaaaan"? Perfection.]

"Born Under Punches" is much more eerie and paranoid than anything that Parliament or Funkadelic has ever done. It also bares the mark of Brian Eno, a talent that also far outshines Parliament or Funkadelic, though it's not as if that's hard to do.

George Clinton would embarrass himself if he ever tried to cover "Born Under Punches."

The racist/nationalist conclusion is the only logical one I can really think of for liking an art rock band over a funk band. I mean, it can't be more obvious; David Byrne is white, while all of the members of Parliament/Funkadelic are, you know, black. How could liking the former over the later be a coincidence? How is it that no one has picked up on this? This is big news!

I don't think you read my post correctly. You used "coincidence" in an attempt to make a pointed comment regarding influence and reverence, where as I used it ironically to deal with the assertion of racism.

If you're trying to refute some misconstrued claim you think I made that the Talking Heads and Parliament aren't similar in some aspects I won't stop you; I just hope you wont take it personally if, assuming you continue using high school debating tactics and uncritical reading, I don't take the time answer any more of your responses.

That the Talking Heads (much like Dr. Octagon, mentioned earlier in this thread) were probably influenced by, and had a respect for, Parliament is not something I even suggested was false. But the end results are separated by enough degrees that to even suggest that the Talking Heads plagiarized Parliament or Funkadelic is laughable. The Talking Heads were, in both song content and song structure, almost nothing like Parliament; proving the lowly, knee-jerk Liberal Artists education origin of the white-face-on-black-music suggestion.
