Awww.. 'twas nuthin' (blush)
The booklet is yours to keep. I made 4 of them, and VT has an exact duplicate, as do I. It is the liner notes to accompany the tape. If we have VT's ominous comments to go by:
"hey swaffy, speaking of "terrorism", as it so happens i finally got around to giving your mixtape an initial listen today & yesterday. my reaction? let's just say i'm dispatching a few More "strike force ships" in your direction as we speak"
...well, I hope you find more to enjoy than our VenerableTunemeister compadre. As I've said in other posts, music, as is true of all art, is probably the most subjective of all subjects. I would never choose or dismiss friends based solely upon their differing opinions of a piece of music.
I anxiously await your honest critique of the contents of the tape. Same for VT, beyond the few words he issued above.
or if not Peace, then Victory!
jdah: "nigh-intolerant despatches"?
-is that a uk way of saying "nagging & whining"? ;)
swaffy: music, as is true of all art, is probably the most subjective of all subjects"
-i would agree in the sense that context is crucial; but i also believe there exists an empiricism of artistic merit which proves itself over time. for example, matisse will always be capable of evoking a superior range, complexity and depth of response than norman rockwell. recognizing this is not the same thing as being a snob; as the recently-deceased pauline kael wrote, "i don't trust critics who say they only care for the highest and best. it's an inhuman position, and i don't believe them." :cool:
"I would never choose or dismiss friends based solely upon their differing opinions"
-Now we're cookin ;) E Pluribus Unum, baby! :D
"I anxiously await your honest critique. . . beyond the few words issued above"
-all things come. . . ;)
np: chic, "strike up the band"
