Re: “The Legend of Zelda

I liked this review. You're all right, Burbank.

Re: “Rebel Girl, Redux

"In our obsession with antagonisms of the moment, we often forget how much unites all the members of humanity. Perhaps we need some outside, universal threat to make us recognize this common bond. I occasionally think, how quickly our differences worldwide would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world.

And yet, I ask is not an alien force ALREADY among us?"

"There are only a handful of people who know the truth about this."

--Ronald Reagan to a full session of the United Nations, September 21, 1987

Re: “Rebel Girl, Redux

Nirvana got it's break because Clive Davis introduced the CD, named after himself, and did away with LP albums, thus, grounds for rewriting recording contracts which paid less, and required more. The dinosaurs refused to sign, so Clive went to Seattle and signed every hack Grunge act he could find, thereby saving a fortune on expensive production costs by taking creative control and limiting the amount of time bands were allowed in the studio. Then Rap was found to be cheaper yet to produce. The amazing thing is that consumers bought it all.

Re: “Rebel Girl, Redux

Musical satire is barely tolerable to listen to one song, even if it is funny. PSU Professor Jon Newton, the guy who produced the soundtrack for Will Vinton's, California Raisins commercial, once had a band called, Dahnce Combo. Ostensibly made up of French musicians who had to learn English lyrics, phonetically. In the middle of each and every song, of a forty song set, there was the same circus music, bridge. What was funny is that it took a few songs before you realized what was happening. After that, it was time to leave.

Re: “Rebel Girl, Redux

Punk's not music, except for Blondie and The Clash.

If I want to listen to rough guitar and the best female Blues/Rock singer to ever live, thank God we've got Janis on film.

Ball & Chain
Janis Joplin
Monterey Pop Festival

Kathleen can't touch this.

Re: “Rebel Girl, Redux

...but if I want to hear such rough vocals, I'll listen to Marc Biedermann.

Julie Ruin isn't any worse that most rap.

Re: “Rebel Girl, Redux

I don't care what style of music women get involved in as long as there is passion. As musicians, we create from a place of inspiration not imitation. Millennial Mamas are removed from music not by age, but by their own self-doubts. Furthermore, as a musician who rocked the nineties, I can honestly say there is no time more exciting to me than now. Kathleen Hanna gets it. Julie Ruin is sweet punktronica bliss.

Re: “Rebel Girl, Redux

I must've been living under a rock during the 90s. Oh, I was really addicted to watching Full House at that time. 15 years clean. Hope the remake sucks

Re: “Rebel Girl, Redux

She's an interesting performance artist, and iconic counter-celebrity, but even the Sex Pistols were self admittedly not really musicians, which was actually their point.

The fact that Hanna has a new act, illustrates that perhaps she is an artist, after all.

Bravo for her encouraging young fans to become what they most admire for themselves.

Re: “Rebel Girl, Redux

Anyone who's ever had to deal with her in person knows she's actually a lot of a jerk. And anyone who was there knows that riot grrl was a step back for feminism, but hey; what a movement in fashion.
She's right about the punk thing, though. Somebody had to bust into the stupid macho with stupid macha. It sounds like I'm damning with faint praise, but I mean it.

Re: “Save Your Sassy Asides

Very excited to see him tonight. His show has been disappointing, though there's a charm to it, and sometimes it's genuinely hilarious. I'd also like to see it get a second season and hope it takes more risks and finds its own voice instead of just regurgitating the formulas he grew up on.

He puts you in a double bind, like Quentin Tarantino does with Kill Bill. If you laugh, you must be a sick psycho, but if you don't laugh, you have no sense of humor.
