Russian Glue

  Racial supremacists usually don't bother me very much, they only get press on slow news days and even then the liberal media usually manages to show them as the misguided misanthropes that they are, in spite of allowing them the publicity so shamelessly for ratings. I don't have any feelings about the Gaede twins beyond the perception that they are not especially talented but have gained notoriety by way of their subject matter. Exactly the same as mediocre pop bands that get record contracts by turning 'christian rock', NTTAWWT.  

  These girls are 14 years old; so of course they have no idea what they are talking about, someone in their management makes all those decisions for them. So one of them says that they admire Hitler and other white power nonsense - seriously, they just don't know any better. Jessica Simpson sings gospel music yet usually appears in public only as cleavage; at least these girl's message is consistent. (Well, 'Jesus' and 'cleavage' almost rhyme, in a cleft palate sort of way.) The twin girls of Prussian Blue don't like you or want to be around you if you are not white. Simple enough, I'm white and I don't want to be around them.  

  It is what you do that matters, not your motivation, regardless what your shrink says. Sure, it makes a difference to the individual and those in his/her life - but not to the rest of us. If you make lame music and only 20% of it is racially insensitive/provocative; you still make lame music. Or say you are a comedian and all of your jokes are about Jews. If you're not Jewish then you'll probably get a lot of grief but if you are Jewish you'll get a pass; just not from me. You're still a hack if you can't find material beyond stereotypes. Every black comedian has at least 20 minutes of "white guys walk like this" material, the successful ones get beyond using it eventually, if they're any good. Not that Chris Rock is horrible, just one of the top three most overrated anythings ever. That said, everyone should see CB4 at least once. (And yes, it was a black girl that never returned the CB4 soundtrack that she borrowed from me, but you knew that. Anything that isn't nailed down, sigh.)

  The biggest offender concerning Prussian Blue and their music is the ABC television network. People that are active in supremacist/separatist causes already knew about these li'l angels, who do you think their management was selling their records to, Sam Goody? It is some of my neighbors, and probably some of yours, that don't seek out such things yet quietly hold their racist beliefs - these are the people that would have never heard of them otherwise but are now buying their records and visiting their website. Freedom of the press and all that, sure, yeah, but you and I and the mousepad all know that "exposing" basically innocuous unknowns on national television has nothing to do with journalism. It's sensational and controversial, which is all they are reaching for when they do these 'articles' on their magazine shows. Usually I blame the media blamers, but in the case of making worthless trash famous I have to side with them. It works for more well-known acts too, did anyone think Insane Clown Posse were good role models for their teenagers before Bill O'Reilly harassed them? Way to tackle the tough issues, Bill.  

  On the lighter side, if you want to contact Prussian Blue; the Gaede Twins mediocre folk music group, you'll have to have a look around.  Prussianblue.com belongs to a UK-based blues band, which is really one of the funniest things I've seen online in a while. (That they beat the li'l angels to the domain name; I don't mean their music is any better or worse or funny or anything like that.) Oh, BTW, they have also registered the name Prussian Blue®!

  Duty Freebie: Newsfromme -  Mark Evanier is an opinionated print and show business veteran that I have been aware of since reading the Groo the Wanderer comics he wrote with Sergio Aragon├ęs back in the 80s. (They are still doing them.) He writes about everything, he's equally likely to mention something about Jessica Simpson as Dick "Dick" Cheney and updates frequently, very often with video clips and great links. I don't think I've ever read anything there about Squeaky though, hmm?  

You should know by the context of the rest of this entry that I was kidding about black people taking anything not nailed down. If not, now you do. It is a true story, but I have more white people on my 'borrowed stuff and never returned it' list, so whom should I be more wary of, right?
