Subject: RE: CD Reviewer accepting Trad entries
I understand that there are many who like to read unfavorable reviews. They are not unlike the millions who love to see who gets voted off the island and love to watch the faces of the runners up in beauty contests. Embarrassment makes great television and is so much more acceptable than car crashes at Indy.
So, in order to be fair, I invite those brave souls, who feel that my writing lacks bite and vindictiveness, to send me their products and I will tear them a new one to their hearts' delight. I realize that harsh John Simon-like criticism is some kind of recognition and recognition, to most "artists" is harder to attain than a useful erection.
No, on second thought, the hell with them. I would rather deal with professionals who make records to sell rather than to kvell.
