UPDATE: I bumped this back up to the top after I received a comment from a reader.
ANOTHER UPDATE: The person who left the comment took me to task for taking his words out of context- I have restored his entire comment: (you tell me if that makes it any better-restored parts in italics)
"I have always enjoyed the music selections you have presented. The uniqueness and variety of the materials you offer are exceptional and I truly do appreciate them being made available to all.
I would like, however, to see the music postings somehow seperated from your other postings. I, like many others, do not hold with the same political views as you and I would like to not have to sift through your vitriole simply to access the better materials you offer. Perhaps a seperate site or some kind of sorting method can be implemented?
Again, thank you for the great materials. You are wise to have used them as a platform to ambush visitors with your ideas, but that is not what I visit this site for.
Surely, it is your site in the end and you will run it any way you like. I am merely making a request."
Are you f*cking crazy? I'm gonna re-design my site so I don't offend the type of people that I think are ruining America? Why are you wasting my time with a question like that? Isn't it enough that that the mainstream media is overwhelmingly slanted to the right? You want my blog too? F*ck You. How's that for "vitriole"? Bottom line is I'm not gonna change anything to make wingnuts feel better about themselves while they're here. Sorry.
I've decided to disable comments for any post that might be considered "political". I don't have the time to answer every wingnut comment, and I'd rather spend my time cooking up some more fun entertainment stuff for everybody.
Anyway, I KNOW what they're gonna say before they say it, and if I didn't I could just turn on FOX (or CNN or almost any news show on TV) and find out. The media in America is overwhelmingly biased against progressives and democrats (even PBS has a 60% to 40% split between Conservative and Liberal pundits- and could everybody stop pronouncing that work pundint?). So I just feel like I'm balancing the scales in my own small way.
Think of it as a little tax. If you wanna come here and enjoy the videos, you're gonna have to put up with a little left-wing attitude (if that bothers you). I have to put up with right-wing proselytizing everytime I turn a fucking knob on my TV or radio, so I don't feel too bad about it (actually, I feel great about it).
All comments and trackbacks, by the way, have to be approved by me in any case, as we've been getting a lotta comment and trackback spam.
