Subject: RE: Show Of Hands - over the top?-Arrogance, Ignorance
Look forward to hearing your stuff (as you say, better done in another place!)

No offence meant. Glad to hear none taken. respect.

Outrageous, spiteful and snidey?
I don't think so.
You have admitted that you can't play, can't sing, have never organised anything, and yet you pontificate as to how the media, and indeed the world should obey your every whim.
When you have your own Radio/TV show, Run for government, whatever. Then you will be entitled to change the world.
Most real people realise that as individuals, we do not have that power.
What really annoys me, is that you are shouting at the little people...It's not nice!
Yes, I'd love to change the world...I'd love that everyone liked Soft Machine. But shouting at you won't make it happen.
So get your placard. do a Billy Bragg, go to Speakers Corner, and rant, if you must. Won't change a thing. Just please stop aiming your vitriol at us little people who are trying to have a life, and earn a small crust. WE ARE NOT THE ENEMY!

Leon Rosselsom (Yes, I know you've never heard of him) has written 1000 songs about inhumanity. Has it changed anything...has it Fuck...But, at least he tried. In Public, On Record. with some of the best musicians in the country. Maybe you should Google/Youtube him, and actually open your ears.

Do I bang on about him? No...I don't need to. everyone on this board knows about him...(He came to mind when you mentioned the Diggers...)
The first time I heard that was via Leon.

It's been said before Lizzie.
Will say it again
Glad you like the music. now do the research, and open your mouth before inserting your foot.Otherwise you just look foolish.
