What a jerk this guy is! His last top 40 single and his last top 40 album were back in 1976! He has too much to do? 10 of his albums failed to even reach the top 100! Yeah, this no talent creep is a real chartbuster! LOL

weird. how did Mo end up in Albany, GA? I lived there for about four years when i was in elementary/ jr high

also, it's one thing to dislike how our govt spends (wastes) tax dollars, but getting in bed w/ Newt & FreedomWorks?? how's about "fuck you"? if you don't know by now that these guys only care about "less" govt for corporations and the extremely wealthy, then srsly, fuck you. sorry, that goes for you, too, Mom, Dad, Grandpa, etc.

It's going to be awkward in a some years when Georgia Hubley calls the liberal president a Communist, and I have to explain to Beeps that she was in fact cool at one time.

she worked at wal-mart? i assumed she was living on fat royalties, lighting virginia slims 120s with burning five dollar bills.

daniel love you man but I am just continually shocked by how people think this vague quality called "royalties" is really enough to sustain anybody except the top .001 of performers at anything above the bare-subsistence level

they only sold 1000 record iirc

They don't get to collect royalties from the 1000 bands that they spawned?

those bands never sold any records

the actual quote has been corrupted over the years - originally it was not a lot of people bought the first velvets album, but everyone who did was suggest-banned

I actually had the same train of thought w/r/t mo tucker and royalties and wal-mart today, just when trying to figure out how the hell mo tucker becomes a republican

I'm pretty sure the only VU payday Moe got was after the '93 reunion show. In one of my Velvet books, she reveals to the interviewer that she and Sterl ceded their "points" for $600 or $800 each in the seventies. "Worst mistake I ever made," she said.

Wait, why would being a working-class senior make someone an economic conservative?

i interviewed moe about 9 or 10 years ago and she was bitter as hell about wal-mart -- hated it, but it was the only place in town to work, and also the only place to shop, like in a lot of small towns. at the time it scanned as aging-beatnik anti-corporate stuff, but i think really she was just pissed off that she's had a hard life. the tea party thing makes sense in that light.

To be fair: some people work very hard, awwww, but they never move to the right.

Guayaquil (eephus!), Sunday, 3 October 2010 02:48 (3 years ago) Permalink

that's because your "old people get more conservative" thing is as I say something young cats like to think that isn't really true

This gets complicated when you discuss social issues. If the general trend is for society to move towards the left and your opinions don't change at all over the years, you're still going to be characterized as "moving towards the right," by people e.g. In the last thirty years if someone says "marriage is between a man and a woman" the left-wing reaction to that will have changed from "duh!" to "ugh..."

Cunga, Sunday, 3 October 2010 03:12 (3 years ago) Permalink

So if people's opinions don't get more left-wing as they age they are, potentially, "getting more conservative"

Cunga, Sunday, 3 October 2010 03:13 (3 years ago) Permalink

tbh I have more sympathy (albeit marginal) with Moe's purported rightwards shift than Lou's crackpot shit on New York.

raging hetero lifechill (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Sunday, 3 October 2010 03:15 (3 years ago) Permalink

if -- as i assume -- lou reed is the person to whom tucker "ceded" her interest in VU for, what, $600.00, i have no sympathy for him.
