    hi u guys! luv politics, and music, altthough film is my only whore, i think politics should be on music as well, though i think one should not make a whole political fed album, cuz then the music will suffer from it, use politics, just dont let politics own u

    That's the main problem, MS constantly changes Office's file formats to get people to upgrade (since there's hardly any other reason to do that). If you want other people (perhaps even Linux users) to be able to open your files you have to choose to save as an older Office format.

    yeah, I didn't have the latest MS version and those files don't work when you get rid of the x.

    Yeah, you're right. And I do still like some techno, but it's usually the subgenres that are more closely related to hip hop (trip hop, drum 'n bass, breakbeat, turntablism, etc.).

    This is a really cool idea. I look forward to seeing how it turns out.

    I used to be really into techno and some of its subgenres, so it's weird that I don't like them.

    Exactly: Beyonce? I think it's the dance-pop part that puts me off about ATR.

    December 2007
  • anarchoqueer

    I find it perfectly easy to listen to political lyrics, as most music I listen to has them. I'm just well-acquainted with reality, I guess.

    December 2007
  • anarchoqueer

    Well, I mean the way their music sounds. It's too dance-y for my taste.

    December 2007
  • anarchoqueer

    The (International) Noise Conspiracy is good. I've heard some Atari Teenage Riot, and I like their lyrics, but their music is hard for me to listen to...

    That's group for political music but I see just a little of it in charts. Guys, try groups like LoopTroop, Keny Arkana, fun-da-mental, The (international) noise conspiracy, Atari teenage riot, Asian dub foundation... There's plenty of political music that you maybe just don't know. By political I mean left-leaning.

  • anarchoqueer

    Also, what do you mean by purist anarchism? Like classical anarchism?

    December 2007
  • anarchoqueer

    Well, I had a socialist teacher, I've met some Independents, and my dad is a libertarian (but not a capitalist one). Those are sort of unconventional ideologies. And I suppose I'm an anarcho-communist. But if it could work, I wouldn't mind having a gift economy. I don't think anarchism would require reconditioning, just some enlightenment (for lack of a better word).

    On another note, bollocks to parties who limit participation in their primaries. Only Democrats will let me vote in the California primary since I have no party affiliation.

    December 2007
  • theGabriel

    Appropriation of some anarchist principles is what seems more practical to me. I haven't the confidence in people to maintain whole-sale, viable anarchy. It would require some reconditioning--which would conflict with individualists.

    December 2007
  • theGabriel

    No particular branch of anarchism or just an anarchist in the purist sense of the term? Most people seem to be apolitical to begin with so I'm not surprised you that haven't encountered someone who embraces an ideology outside of the confines of convention. The history of the Spanish Civil War familiarized me to a degree with anarcho-syndicalism but it's not something I completely advocate for.

    December 2007
  • anarchoqueer

    And to be honest, I've never met another anarchist either. Except online, but that doesn't really count.

    December 2007
  • anarchoqueer

    There's a metaphorical saying: If it's humiliating to take orders from your bosses, how much more so is it to choose between them? But I know there are anarchists who vote tactically, AKA voting for the least competent candidate in hopes that it will bring more people to action or even radicalize them. I don't think that's for me, though.

    December 2007
  • anarchoqueer

    I'm an anarchist because I believe that all government is does more harm than good, and is unnecessary. I'm also anti-capitalist. Being non-mainstream does not make you an anarchist, although that pretty much fits me, too. I'm 19, so I haven't had a chance to vote yet. I doubt I will.

    December 2007

    Good group. :)

    what makes you an anarchist? or are you anarchist to be among the non-mainstream? (i haven't met an anarchist so far..)

    December 2007
  • anarchoqueer

    I tend to feel like there's nothing to say about it that hasn't already been said, so I feel like I'm being unoriginal. Sadly, I also can't get pissed off enough about something if most other people are mad, too. But I'll shut up about my writer problems now, haha.

    December 2007
  • anarchoqueer

    Also, if your political views are reflected by the majority of people, or even a sizable amount, I think it's less likely that you'd feel the need to write a song about them. But maybe that's just me, because I write lyrics. They're mostly political, and I find it pretty hard/not much fun to write about the few issues where I stand with the majority.

    December 2007
  • anarchoqueer

    Well, I'm an anarchist (if you couldn't tell from my username). But I don't know what the rest of the group member's politics are. Anyway, I might be biased since I haven't heard much country (or, for that matter, right-wing Oi!), but it seems like most political music is either radical or progressive. So it's not that surprising to me if people in this group have those views.

  • anarchoqueer

    Yeah, Beck got kinda poppy. But his old stuff is good, and that's what counts.

    That's true. And now Radiohead is getting pretty low. Sweet, Beck is #3.

    did anyone receive my survey? do you have more of those?

    November 2007
  • anarchoqueer

    The charts still have Radiohead at #1, though. And the ones I've heard of (which is most) don't have political lyrics.
