i saw this yesterday and then read the "manifesto" they released upon breaking up and it makes their whole reunion seem all the more hilariously pathetic

A friend of mine liked them, so I figured I'd check them out.  I spent a couple of hours on one of their albums.  Then I switched to the next track.

This is a real bummer to hear about. Hasn't the cafe been fighting eviction since shortly after it first opened? it seems like the administration is determined to shut it down for good this time, though.
Woo Richmond! I'll see you there.

i guess i've struggled with something like depression for years now. it's not getting any better and this time of year is always a real killer so i finally went to the doctor and he started me off on a small dose of lexapro so we'll see where that goes

i never know if i'm "actually" depressed or if i need to make some major lifestyle changes (not that those are always easy or possible to do, but still)

Horror movies after 1995 are almost always garbage, I see maybe two movies on your list that aren't awful.

should this be merged with the drunk thread
i relax my eyes and stare off into space while trying not to look at the dentist. i also hope i don't think of a joke and chuckle to myself because that's my worst fear in those situations and seems to happen sometimes

does a culture have to be oppressed or exploited for something to be appropriative?

people of color adopting or caricaturing white culture in the US is never going to be seen as appropriative.

right, because whiteness is seen as the dominant culture. i only asked that because you said that ancient egypt wasn't an "oppressed culture," and i'm not sure that makes a difference
does a culture have to be oppressed or exploited for something to be appropriative? i never thought so.

just think of katy perry in the "dark horse" music video. is that really the line you want to be toeing
phil ochs is definitely underappreciated and i'm pretty sure i heard about him when evan greer covered "love me, i'm a liberal" years ago. from his political stuff to his softer personal stuff it's all so top-notch and i don't know why he isn't more well known today
QuoteThe most famous story concerning Phil Ochs and Bob Dylan deals with Ochs criticizing one of Dylan's songs and Dylan tossing Ochs out of a limousine, but the details have become muddied over time.

One of the more common explanations pegs the song in question as "Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window?" See, for example, Wikipedia's summary:
Dylan played the song to Phil Ochs as the two were riding in a limousine. When Ochs expressed a lukewarm feeling about the piece, Dylan kicked him out of the limousine, yelling "You're not a folk singer. You're a journalist."
The song, in fact, was not played in the car, and it was in fact another song recorded at the same session in 1965: "One of Us Must Know (Sooner or Later)." This was explained by Ochs to Rolling Stone and to author Marc Eliot (who included the anecdote in his revised outro to Death of a Rebel). The story as usually told at least captures the sentiment correctly: Ochs felt that Dylan was losing his songwriting clarity in the material recorded for Blonde On Blonde, and Dylan felt that Ochs' writing on political matters was "bullshit," and that only expressions of a personal nature mattered (this was a change, of course, from his early embrace of topical songwriting).

Undoubtedly Ochs didn't mind being called a journalist (his early shows billed him as the "singing journalist") but he remarked that it was upsetting to hear his idol (Dylan) saying that his songwriting efforts were in vain. The two wouldn't reconcile for nearly another ten years, with Ochs inviting Dylan to the benefit concert An Evening with Salvador Allende in 1974. Ochs also made a brief appearance in Dylan's film Renaldo & Clara, where he takes Dylan's hat before playing a set at Gerde's Folk City, which included his only serious cover of a Dylan song, "Lay Down Your Weary Tune." Somewhat aptly as a metaphor for their relationship, the concert footage cuts just as Ochs begins playing in what became the last film shot of him before his death.
