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.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
