Posted: Jul 24, 2007 1:51 am

Posted: Jul 24, 2007 1:53 am
 
How do I get records on my computer?
Posted: Jul 24, 2007 1:53 am
 
i mean it seems like their really isn't much to be learned. you can't teach taste, and i'm the only one around here who has it anyway. fag.

What's up in Memphis? Chicago? The Upper Antilles? Akron? NYC? Louisville? Mexico?
Top 10? Best of?
Why is Jay Reatard so touchy about the word "ghetto"?
Can saispas top the last "how do I fix my?..."
What's up with a whole Memphis category? What do you remember?
How do you cook shrimp, pork, BBQ?
Who's playing where?

There's a lot to be learned, but I wonder what the thesis of all this is. What is there to independent study? It's kind of a narrow field...

Just remember the three B's.

You can devote a full semester to the study of whether the Black Lips live record will be released on vinyl, and what label will be putting it out.
Posted: Jul 24, 2007 2:55 am
 
If someone put that out on vinyl I'd totally buy it
Posted: Jul 24, 2007 3:55 am
 
you're a I'd totally buy it

Awesome idea dcr.
Posted: Jul 24, 2007 1:50 pm
 
I'd like to add as a sub thesis, that some very informed folks, such as myself, get all our new via the goner board. It is way less slanted than reuters or ap.
Posted: Jul 24, 2007 3:37 pm
 
please leave me divorcing my husband almost 3 years ago and still not finding a decent man to date out of it. that's boring anyway.

and please make sure there are lots and LOTS of references to ROCK. i will then feel dutifully represented. if i'm being represented at all, that is...

and can you get a young coked-out, rock star slutting janice dickinson to play me in the goner movie? i'm reading her book "check please!" and she's making me laugh.

ah laughter...
Posted: Jul 24, 2007 3:39 pm
 
and don't forget a slideshow presentation of all our pets.
Posted: Jul 24, 2007 3:39 pm

Please do not leave out my quest for a hug from jenna. It came to me in a dream once, for chrissakes. And my wife already busted me for it.

Posted: Jul 24, 2007 5:29 pm
 
You should leave Jenna out just to piss her off.

to answer a few burning questions, this class will be concentrating on the mechanisms of culture. i'm using "goners" because my professor and i feel this little group of people is unique in that you all have defied, in some way or another, some of the theories surrounding culture. my aim is to explore this. with the various interests we have here, its hard for anyone entity to exploit them. look at what rachelandthecity is always trying to do. it never works. are we punk? are we losers? are we so out of touch that no one else cares? are we so hip that no one can keep up? i'm very interested in developing an argument for another approach to cultures like this. in theory this group is situated in emergence and is feeding off residual elements in culture awaiting dominant exploitation. this group is different; instead of using these residual elements as a basis for nostalgia (which i see as detrimental), the group uses it to effectively proliferate itself as a constantly re-emerging culture, somehow avoiding the dominant. there are always exceptions, but generally i've noticed this group is very aware of itself, is very self-reflexive, and very critical of each component of itself.

HEE-HAW!!!
Posted: Jul 24, 2007 5:37 pm
 
oh, and i've just been talking about it, now i'll actually have time to put all my ideas together into a paper.

when i'm done i'll send it to anyone wanting to read it.

You should explore why Mormons aren't fond of Arkansans.

ha, trickknee! subterfuge is far superior to celebrity.

in theory this group is situated in emergence and is feeding off residual elements in culture awaiting dominant exploitation.

uh, i came to this board because i was an oblivians fan.

Posted: Jul 24, 2007 6:05 pm

Just messin' with you, chippy. I honestly didn't know anything about this, until I saw that documentary on PBS a few weeks back.
Posted: Jul 25, 2007 5:13 pm
 
yeah. i'm glad i'm not any of those people. i do not want to have to explain that to jesus.

you wouldn't have to anyway. when you die, your dead.
Posted: Jul 25, 2007 5:35 pm
 
Is "love, goner style" going to be a part of the paper?
Posted: Jul 25, 2007 5:53 pm
 
your dead.

your dead? what about my dead?
Posted: Jul 25, 2007 5:55 pm

DCR - you should read my friend Stacy Horn's book, Cyberville: Clicks, Culture and the Creation of an Online Town and talk to her about the mechanisms of culture yadda yadda yadda....

also - i had her on one of the talk shows i produced... she's kind of the expert w/ bonafides in the "online community" field, so you'll be getting MORE than anecdotal stuff from your "friends" for your paper
Posted: Aug 8, 2007 6:44 pm
 
look at what rachelandthecity is always trying to do. it never works.


what exactly am I always trying to do?

the thing about this board is - when i think I have an iron clad idea about something, that there could be no logical argument, I just come here and I get the other side.

I hear things here that I would have never come up with on my own in a million years - and thats fine, I usually respect the other person's idea and relearn that there is never only one way to look at something.

you should write about "i'm gay.... it's true"
a lot of people want to be gay. it's probably a whole other paper.
Posted: Aug 9, 2007 8:56 pm
 
DCR: I am totally graduating on the basis of my thesis documentary about women involved in The Rock and Roll, which basically means i have been driving around partying all summer. It isn't any feminist manifesto, for those of you who dont know me. It is basically about ROCKING OUT and being a girl>

It seems only natural that we, as Goners, should GD do what we want to do. I am NOT sure that this will in turn get me a high paying luxurious job, but at least I didn't have to read about mass communication theories for six months or work at a right-wing local 8 page newspaper. Not to mention validating any reason to hang out and watch bands at anytime. It's research.

That pretty much makes us all PH fucking DEEs

Thank you
Dr. VanWinkle, PH.D

Interviewer: Your skill set looks solid, and your graduating status shows determination. In order to determine your interpersonal skills, I'd like to know how you handle inter-personal relationships. Have you any experience there?
Interviewee: Have you read the Goner-board, you fucking faggot?
Posted: Aug 10, 2007 12:41 pm
 
Or as the guy who gave me my only bad Ebay feedback put it, "Go hell you wee wee"!
Posted: Aug 10, 2007 6:45 pm

exploit. and everyone here is all to aware of what exploitation does. it may not be intentional, but you're still doing it.

Posted: Aug 14, 2007 1:52 am

Posted: Aug 14, 2007 2:09 am
 
i have volume 1 with the glow in the dark cover and the "hidden" lyres track and shitty liner notes.
Posted: Aug 14, 2007 2:24 am
 
arent the early pressings mastered poorly? i remember hearing that somewhere...
Posted: Aug 14, 2007 2:33 am
 
sounds alright. i haven't had too much a reason to actually listen to it, except for the lyres track.
