Mikey joe BS: IRISH (23) RE: BS: IRISH 14 Feb 01

Conrad Bladey is a sad no life specky little runt. he gets his kicks out of flaming various Irish music related (an who knows what else) newsgroups. And I don't care if it gets me in trouble with mudcat but I for one want him out. Everyone is entitled to thiee opinion. But there is no room in my book for people who just think it's funny to ridicule everyone else. If anyone would like a second opinion here are some typical posts from IRTRAD (usually posted under an alias, as above in the cases below the alias was John Sullivan.

Subject: All things from China end up breaking!
I was just reading the debate about Chinese made accordions. Were the people sticking up for the chinese smoking opium? Almost everything that I have bought from China falls apart. Since every thing made in that country is lousy(excluding fortune cookies), why would anyone risk spending hundreds of dollars on a piece of socialist junk? I offer the following challenge to to the pro-chinese faction: If you had something break on you go get it out of the garbage. It bet you it says Made in China. It's not true that some of the labor in China is slave labor. It all is. They are taxed at over 90%. If you worked and didn't get paid at all you would be called a slave. Doesn't it follow then that the Chinese should be considered 90% of a slave. Don't buy anything from China. The plastic on those accordions is probably toxic and will make you grow another arm. Anyone who purveys Chinese products ought to be ashamed of themselves. The human rights abuses occurring in that slave pit of hell are horrifying. What the hell are these people thinking selling that junk from China? Well I guess it's ok if they're making money. Did you know people in China sell their eyeballs and kidneys to make ends meet? The reason is because of their slave wages.

Not convinced????? try this....

Subject: Re: Sessions in Germany?

f you ever want to get a cheap thrill try listening to a german or a dutch attempting Irish music. I used to think that the Japanese made Irish music sound the most ridiculous but that has all changed after a recent visit to Europe. Something about the teutonics dictates that they play EVERY tune as if they were being accompanied by a couple of yodlers at an Oktober Sausage Packing fest. The sessions I encountered in those two countries were the most absurd thing I've ever heard. These people have absolutely no concept of ornanmentation. No wonder their folk music sucks so bad!!! When we did our last tour there it became a habit for us to go get really high in the cafes and then set out to find a session to mock. Whoopy!!! What Fun! I hate to sound closed minded or elitist but Irish people are really the only ones who can play Irish music properly. Even Irish Americans can't do it right. THe Scottish come the closest.
