Mind fuzzy. Anon...I'm sure you're right.

It's not the decline of pop culture that I care about. It's her. Good enough? Sorry, not thinking clearly. Everytime I try to have a coherent thought, I just get a mental image of Kate Winslet's lips. And when she had to pry her frozen hand from his?? *shudder*

Looking pensive. People with giants cheeses on their head. Hmm. Oooh, 7 all. Another ad break. Sigh. It's nice Gary Imlach. What's going on? I have no idea. Oh, another car ad. Let's have another aerial view of the stadium. Another car ad. And now a computer ad. Hang on, here's a bit of action. Still 7 all. Bit of shoving going on. They're all on the ground again. They're up. No, now they're on the ground again. Just under two minutes remaining in the opening quarter apparently. Man in a blue top is taking a long time to get up. Hmm. Reporter seems concerned.

QUeenie: I responded to the apparent threat you were undoubtedly feeling regarding the Spice Whores; that's why I said, Meow. You were being catty. I was letting you know nobody around here spend a lot of time THINKING about the importance or lack of importance of the Spice Girls as a way of saying, Hey Queenie, we don't care about them. You don't have to either. If you want to talk about the decline and fall of popular culture, you will find deaf ears here because nobody cares, and that's why our culture is dying. You on the other hand have admitted to Really Thinking About The Spice Girls; the deeper meaning of it all. Fine! But do not perceive a persecution where none exists. We don't care about the spice girls; we do care about your opinions. I for one wish you would shoot a little higher than the spice girls. And now I am going to watch the pinnacle of pop culture events, the super bowl.

FROM: Myk Murphy
DATE: Sat Jan 24 16:29:11 PST 1998
here's a thought: we should thank the cheesy acts of the world, such as the Spice Girls. it is sometimes pointed out by record execs and other money people in the industry that the cash cows like the spice girls (note the nasty bovine reference toward them) allow less profitable artists to remain on large labels, with large label support. anyone who thinks that robyn h. has been particularly profitable for warner should have his head checked. consider the greatness of artists like joe jackson, now on sony's Classical label... he embodies true musical "high art" talent, and heavily uses sony's extensive resources (lots of session musicians, super-high production quality, guest "stars" on the recordings, etc.) but the "low art" pop music pays for his activities. such is the music biz today. (1)it is well-known that pop music subsidizes classical, specialty, and other niche styles of music. (2)it is also recognized that we cannot turn many people on to quality music. if we accept the 2 preceding statements, then we should encourage all our friends and neighbors to go buy the top-40 crap from the various record labels, in order to subsidize our "niche" interest: robyn.

Fair enough. There are no Spice Girls supporters or 'defenders' on this board Queenie, merely posters who tolerate them as a fact of life, knowing that if they weren't here, another equally shallow band would fill their (very high) shoes in an instant.

Once I had to abandon my own Dandy Warhols chat room because I kept irritating all the Dandy's fans by complaining about their phony, Oasis-like rock star attitudes and the effects it had on our little community and the music scene in general. I realized that it was a Dandy Warhol room, and a place for fans of the group to come and talk about how much they liked them. I realized that it was unfair of me to show up and bad mouth their favorite band on what I considered to be their "turf." So I never posted there again out of respect for those kids. I found myself a minute ago sitting here thinking I should do the same thing now and stop posting on this board because I don't want to offend all the Spice Girls supporters but then I realized Hey! THis is a goddamn Robyn Hitchc--k message board, who is, the last time I checked, the polar opposite of everything the Spice Girls are. I have every right to speak my mind about this here. And I, for the LIFE of me, cannot comprehend how someone who listens to RH, an inarguably more clever and intelligent brand of music, could defend talentless trash like the Spice Girls. But I will take steps to keep the peace. Being a person that does not make snap judgements or tries not to have knee-jerk reactions, my reasons for thinking the Spice Girls are threatning are very well explored and thought out. I would be happy to share these reasons with anyone who wants to hear and maybe open some eyes, but I will no longer just offer them out to the world because my opinions are clearly not wanted here by some. I don't want to upset the people that I consider my new friends over something so dopey. And, if left un-provoked, that should be my last statement on the subject.
