best thread of the year so far!
You know you've hit a nerve when the Isthmus staff goes into full on defense mode.
Mssr. Burns, that had to be the most absurd thing I think you've ever written, at least that I've read. Very dramatic!
Now that I know you feel that way I look forward to your article on how the work of greats like by D. Williams, J. Roland & Hoyt Curtin on the theme for "Josie and the Pussycats" is on par with Billie Holiday's interpretation of Lewis Allan's "Strange Fruit" when you profile The Outtatoons*.
I think your new tag line should be,
"Fuck you, it's all part of the canon!"
The PYG covering MIA would be relevant to this thread if PYG were a MIA cover band. Last I checked, they are not.*just for the record cartoon cover band musicians are *real* musicians and deserve your respect as well!
