How are Man City indie?

Dom Passantino (Dom Passantino), Tuesday, 15 February 2005 19:45 (sixteen years ago) link

Because Mark E. Smith and Mark Burgess are fans.

Ned Raggett (Ned), Tuesday, 15 February 2005 19:47 (sixteen years ago) link

Yeah, so are the Gallagher Brothers, so that pretty much disqualifies Man City as the indie team.

he seems like one of those guys who when he was younger kinda wanted to be "in" and never got there, so he got a little misanthropic, and that caused people to push him aside more, which caused him to be more misanthropic, and on and on, and now his existence boils down to picking fights with the girlfriends of indie rockers.

memo from norv turner (omar little), Friday, 13 February 2009 18:57 (twelve years ago) link

i'm just imagining a situation where someone calls the movie where james franco gets stuck in a rock inspirational and you respond "actually, it's only inspirational for people who want to cut their arms off"

qualx, Sunday, 18 October 2015 02:26 (six years ago) link

that would be a weird stance to take, which is why i corrected the impression in a post with your name in it that you reposted

da croupier, Sunday, 18 October 2015 02:29 (six years ago) link

but no one is arguing that some people can find it uninspiring, and you spent half that post continuing to position it as "you are either a person who finds this inspiring or uninspiring and that choice says stuff about you", which is why i said that two things can be true at the same time and also this is a bunch of semantic bullshit. it is possible to find the sale of pitchfork to conde nast uninspiring and depressing or whatever and still be inspired by schreiber's bizarre life turning out the way it has or whatever. which is kind of there already in the monumental whiney g weingarten post that set all this off.

i've become the thing i've hated so let's just say whiney's into compartmentalization and you're not and be done with it

qualx, Sunday, 18 October 2015 02:42 (six years ago) link

I dont recall saying being inspired by the sale says something about you - actively avoided casting aspersions. and Whiney specifically said it was inspiring to imagine getting to do nothing, so if the idea is that he was really saying it was the journey not the paycheck that was inspiring, I think you might have missed that.

da croupier, Sunday, 18 October 2015 02:59 (six years ago) link

It was chachi who took the "ahem the pitchfork story can clearly be inspiring" tack, earning a "FFS duh" before you even got here

da croupier, Sunday, 18 October 2015 03:03 (six years ago) link

and in case happy days wants to go down this route again, i'm not saying the filthy lucre makes everything uninspirational, or that there's nothing cool about how ryan went from "i love 12 rods" to "i got 12 million" blah blah all that shit

dude I made one fuckin post with some loose thoughts of very minor import to anybody in the world, just a response to what seemed to be a weirdly NO FUCKIN WAY IS THAT INSPIRING YOU GODDAMN CLOWNS thing you were mounting. just a personal "well, you know, there are are some ways in which that's kind of inspiring." in response, this multi-post ongoing jeremiad from you

like, I am usually the dude to whom people say "relax a little," but maybe relax just a tiny tiny bit?

Sorry when people claim I said something I didn't it gets my hackles up, trust I plan to avoid contradicting people on ilx in the future

da croupier, Sunday, 18 October 2015 03:11 (six years ago) link

For instance the "you goddamn clowns" tone came re: people pretending I was saying money is bad, not people saying it was inspiring

da croupier, Sunday, 18 October 2015 03:13 (six years ago) link

david geffen selling his stake in asylum records for millions in the 70s was certainly impressive, but it's inspirational only if your goal is to build something and then sell it for a large amount of money.

this is what you said; I think it's a false statement, thought I made my case for a different idea calmly and lucidly, since I wasn't mad at your claim, just disagreed. in response, you have been yelling a lot.

tremendous crime wave and killing wave (Joan Crawford Loves Chachi), Sunday, 18 October 2015 03:17 (six years ago) link

Tbf I can see why people might get defensive upon statements as simple as "selling your company is inspiring if you want to sell" - certainly leaves room for people to see extra words around it, but I can only point out the lack of them so many times.

da croupier, Sunday, 18 October 2015 03:18 (six years ago) link

it's the "only" that's the problem there, imo

tremendous crime wave and killing wave (Joan Crawford Loves Chachi), Sunday, 18 October 2015 03:20 (six years ago) link

Chachi if you look at my first response to you you'll see that I quoted the offending line of your post and repeated the previous post I made that makes clear why I'd find "croup why you saying money is bullshit" aggravating

da croupier, Sunday, 18 October 2015 03:21 (six years ago) link

it's inspirational only if your goal is to build something and then sell it for a large amount of money.

^^^

direct quote of a rather transparently false claim you made. in response to what I felt was a fairly mellow "well, no," you continue to be really snippy and weird ("I can only point out the lack of [other words] so many times")

tremendous crime wave and killing wave (Joan Crawford Loves Chachi), Sunday, 18 October 2015 03:23 (six years ago) link

Also "ffs...I'll repeat" is kinda the opposite of yelling

da croupier, Sunday, 18 October 2015 03:23 (six years ago) link

I am sorry if people were made defensive by my initial posts and yes I could have been nicer about clarifying

da croupier, Sunday, 18 October 2015 03:25 (six years ago) link

croup i'm sorry but we're just gonna have to agree to disagree here, murder is wrong imo even if it is for "shits and giggles"

Lol you goddamn clown

da croupier, Sunday, 18 October 2015 03:30 (six years ago) link

yeah i was trying to find net work for brett gurewitz as another likely candidate for someone who got rich off of indie rock. dexter holland is worth $65 million fwiw but they jumped to the majors earlier than i remembered. liz phair is worth $3 million but who knows what the various pathways for that income stream are.

thought it was 94K plus bennies...also that was probably quoting 2 years ago, so assuming even a 4% type cost of living bump for 2 years

he could be at over 98K plus bennies, however it's possible that that's been offset by rising health care premiums post ACA

i don't know, lots to think about

i actually managed to join his semi unofficial discord server once i caught a livestream. there were a fair deal of people considering how elusive the whole thing was, they weren't that friendly to newcomers like myself though. i actually had to send my rym account to an admin in order to "prove i was a real person" but come on that was obv to judge if my music taste was good enough lol.

i like some of the shallow rewards videos, mostly because i'm more interested in critics talking about the music industry as a whole rather than trying to sell me why an album is good/bad. if anyone knows any other critic that does this i'd be glad to hear
