You know, I like to think of myself as a good sport. You post stuff about a goofy fusion and, hey, I can have some fun with it. But when you appear to treat Freestyle Acid House Flamenco music with the same frivolity as Twelve Tone Boy Groups, I just have to speak up. Of course there's no way you could know--I reserve a private part of my life that no one, not even dear C&F friends, knows anything about. But wouldn't it at least seem like a POSSIBILITY, Dale, that a fusion as significant, resonant, and meaningful as Freestyle Acid House Flamenco might be the kind of thing that gets a person through the night? I can't tell you how many crises I have endured--with hope and determination, no less--because of the inspiration I have taken from A Guy Called Geraldo's Andalusian Voodoo and other trance-enducing heel-clacking miracles. I don't know--to see this life-transforming music put on display for derision--I just feel so....violated.

Hate to be a buzz kill, but I gotta say what's in my heart.

Oh, my. :oops:

I'd apologize except that there's no place to put the apology.

Oh my! I think Carol just won a post-structuralists copy of Tom Wolfe's book, "The Kandy-Kolored Tangerine-Flake Streamline Baby" in audio book format, and read by P-Diddy or something like that.

Now, let's give Dale the benifit of the doubt. Perhaps he has only been
subjected to substandard artists in this genre. There's some awful
stuff to be had out there... I mean, MC Aspiro's music is nothing but
sampled castenets and Santana licks looped in an ever-accelerating
crecendo of God-awfulness. I mean, the man knows nothing of the
tradition.

At least Dale didn't bring up Celtic New-Age Flaminco...
Nobody, but nobody, disses Eña and gets away with it.

There was an Apology Suppository, but it disintegrated.

I guess it wasn't bad enough that I originally wrote "know" instead of "knows" in the third sentence (and then furtively edited it); NO, I also had to spell inducing wrong. I am *that* shaken. Thanks to all, though, for the expressions of understanding. At times like these, it helps, it really does.

*taps fist on chest in one of those 'hey bro we tight' kind of motions, having the streetwise coolness so many educational editors tend to have*

Whenever I am confronted by a gang of punk, streetwise educational editors in a dark street or dead end alley, I pull out a participle and dangle it in front of them to distract them. Then I toss it out into the roadway and make my escape as they pounce on it.

Ever notice that Preparation-H smells an awful lot like ragweed?

Didn't we have more tornado deaths in Oklahoma than Kansas did? Of course, we've got 715,152 more people to get in the way of tornadoes. And, we've shared more than a few tornadoes in the past century. Shared some with Missouri, Arkansas, Texas, and New Mexico too. Maybe even Colorado.
