glueman Writing folk music reviews (124* d) RE: Writing folk music reviews 20 Jul 11


Not skewed, evasive or misleading. Flora G asked, "Does anybody actually read reviews?"
I said, "No, but then I don't watch TV or take a newspaper and my radio listening is limited to a few choice items each month. It's an informational Galapagos but it suits me."

Anyone with a modicum of sense would understand it was a personal response to an open question. In the time I took to reply it was likely another two or three posters might have answered yes, no and maybe. Your gripe is derived from the fact I believe most reviews are so much hot air and you apparently, write them. You can challenge me on my belief but you chose to launch into an ad hominem instead. Poor show, plus you used the word 'valedictions' in an informal discussion which suggests our dialogue is indeed a complete waste of my time.
