Nice vid. smile

I think it was Emma Goldman who said, "If I can't dance to K Pop, it's not my revolution."

Then again, cocksucker is a word that puts down straight women and gay men, and people raped by men. I think it ties into sexist and homophobic ideas a fair bit. It also has a couple of other problematic implications. So maybe using another word would work better.

Saying that, I know you didn't mean it to be demeaning anyone. I'm just saying how it might be a word that works against our principles and may well be worth replacing.

Point taken and from this point onwards amended!
On trying to think of alternatives to describe my meaning I pretty quickly find myself back in the gutter so I think it best that I try to forget about my pet hate - Mr. Morello and his ilk - and turn my thoughts in a more meaningful direction. It was well over a year ago that I had the misfortune of watching this fucking wankstick droning on about politics and then performing a trio piece with the equally dreadful singer from Rise Against and, wait for it, BILLY FUCKING BRAGG!
I'm not sure if I'll ever recover, but I think I should try!

Dunno how to imbed videos - this is from my all time favourite anti-capitalist album, Setting Suns.

The link doesn't work but presumably it's a groovy little piece of vegan disco?

I'd rather you didn't call me baby Stalinski but a very tempting proposition all the same.

Fuck yeah! The late 70's and early 80's was an incredible era which produced a new-wave of anti-establishment art. What happened to the passionate empathic revolutionary vibe and poetry, it's been swamped by the modern narcissistic society's self-absorption in petty individuality!

How about this for a critique?

A very worthy critique it is for its parodying of the dominant bourgeois hippy ideology! Arthur Brown was an artist extraordinaire who associated with the avant-garde revolutionary committee of the 60s which etched its anarchist non-doctrine in acid upon concrete conformity!
There were the true hippies and then there were the bourgeois copycats, you had to have been around in the 60s to recognize the nuance. Just like these days one has to know the difference between hipsters and anarchists.

Blimey, I only met the plonkers and weekenders. None of them clocked in at 7.30am.

More prevalent in a non-urban collective, there did exist those who practiced the true hippy lifestyle. They clocked in at noon usually, were self-proclaimed anarchistic in their desires yet obeyed an informal dominant bourgeois alpha male , and ethically opposed the breaking of establishment laws outside of marijuana use.
But seriously, I mean those who had a pragmatic approach to food production and DIY independence and self-sufficiency and were sovereign collective associations who could survive and function without the State.

I'm just re-reading this thread (my .mp3 died and didn't have any of the music backed up cry ) to get.ideas and I just realised that I really like this line. Speaking as someone who can't dance to save my life, might I add.

That IS a good line, wasn't it originally an Oscar Wilde comment, but yeah, I'm going over old comments myself cos its randomly inspirational.

Tracy Chapman’s ‘Revolution’ is a good song, though I seem to remember her as a cheer leader for Mrs. Thatcher. It reminds me of Barry McGuire laughing off the lyrics of his version of ‘Eve of Destruction’. Wasn’t it Frank Zappa who said, “We’re only in it for the money”?

The big confusion lies in the fact that Tracy Chapman and Joan Armatrading both did a version of this song, and have a similar vocal tone and physiognomy but a different political view, which confuses white folk because other races often look the same, due to the phenomenon of cross-race effect. Anyway, Joan has a more sensual soulful sound which in my opinion would have made her an opponent of Thatcher!
