He did "spoken word" readings around SF and tours. Does he still do that?
Is he from the dead Kennedy's ?
Yes he is R5. Real name Eric Boucher.
A really boring musician who is past his prime and 5 seconds of fame.
Acronyms' capital letter belong for only the first letter of entire words, you ninny, not syllables.
It's not Main Stream Media, is it? No. Because the media is not about streams.
Your stupidity in using a non-acronym is matched by your presumption in thinking others use it.
No doubt you're also one of the legions of twits who don't know the difference between it's and its.
"MSM" is common Internet shorthand for the mainstream media, R9. Is this your first time on the computer?
r8 = Anita, trolling.
Actually, even if it was Main Stream Media, MSM wouldn't be an acronym.
An acronym is an abbreviation that is pronounced as a word, like LASER or NATO or PETA.
MSM is an initialism, an abbreviation formed by the first letters of words - like ATM or USA (or syllables, as in the case of ESP or MSM) - that is pronounced letter by letter.
That's not the point R12. The point is that everybody who uses the internet extensively has heard this abbreviation many times.
Isn't that the blue Jello?
[quote]The point is
Shouldn't "the point" have something to do with Jello Biafra?
r15, are you new here?
r12 is part of a long tradition of a)pedantic posters, and b)off-topic thread posts.
I love them; I always learn finer points of language most people don't use anymore.
On topic, I'm not sure what the OP meant.
Do you mean the fact that he flames in interviews and it isn't discussed, or his radical (for the time) political/cultural opinions, or his subpar music?
MSM has been in regular use for several years. R9 just woke up from a 20 year booze-induced sleep.
Or s/he doesn't read right or centre-right media, r18.
I rarely see that used on lefty sites. It started as a Conservative political term in c. 2008.
Here's what I know about Jello Biafra aka Eric Boucher.
He has a sister somewhere, there's Rabbis in his family line.
He did like trashy women at some point then when the wife took off with another man he was very very damaged.
An underage teen runaway-groupie with a drug problem Native American named Aris or Eris was living with him and sleeping with him in the later 80's.
He's not very tall, he's rather snarky & mean to people, never nice and friendly.
He was then attracted to really preppy trust funder plain women for a while.
After that I would see him in the Castro dressed in drag at times, and I think he was either experimenting with being bi/gay or was coming into himself really being bi or full on gay.
He's not tall, he's short. And really unattractive. It looks like he's always plucked his eyebrows.
He's got to be heading towards 60 years old at this point.
He hasn't been heard from since the mid 90s when he lost that debate with actor Luke Edwards who said he had a "whiny way of speaking."
""MSM" is common Internet shorthand for the mainstream media,"
Only to acolytes of the Alaskan harpy, Sarah Palincunt.
Have you ever BEEN to a punk show or seen the Dead Kennedys? Doubtful.
I have, so fuck off.
I love that someone can post an completely bizarre remark about a media blackout around Jello Biafra and the only response here is an argument about whether "MSM" is an acceptable abbreviation of "mainstream media."
Absurdist diversionary tactics are part and parcel of "Pointless Bitchery."
Happy to Serve.
There's always room for jello. It's what's for desert.
I remember the debate in r21. It was a panel and they were talking about NAFTA but Edwards was there for the earlier baseball discussion and stayed. This was after he was in Little Big League I think. He really handed it to Biafra.
Anybody Luke Evans is against, I am for.
r27, it was Luke EDWARDS for fuck's sake.
R9 obviously lacks actual knowledge of the concept, derivations, diversity and cultural determination of acronym construction, nor the difference between acronyms and handy abbreviations.
While Wikipedia is not usually the definitive source information, it's good enough for this pretentious cunt. Read up, fool.
Nothing is worse than a false expert. Do note the ineptness of the rhetorical devices this poster attempted to apply, and the illogical connection made between use of the abbreviation and an unrelated language error.
Obviously not just a cunt but a self-deluded and uneducated one. Presumption indeed.
