This is not gonna turn into a slow burn on Miles is it? Gotta love the man who was coked out of his skull and went and mainstreamed improv jazz, then did it all again with fusion. Yeah.
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.

Yeah, that's the one. What's the Miles one called?


Oh, Walrus, sorry.... I've never listened to Ben Folds, so I can't offer an opinion.

i think its just miles davis , its a auto biography

he talks about pussy just as much as i do, and the storys are great


i have some cool miles storys

did you know that before he died keaunu reeves did heroin with him, and also before he died he loved pauls boutique by the beastie boys

the keaunu reeves thing i read that once, but afterwards i looked for more info on it and couldnt find it, but how cool would that be to get high with one of the great men of all time, but ya know as long as you are not sharing a needle


and pauls boutique is one of the greatest albums ever made, by a band that went to shit right after they made it

yeah. it was really weird he was like the only one (still alive) that didnt participate.  they just kept talking ABOUT him. it would have been really nice to get his insight into the whole thing.

Thank you for ruining this thread Alguien, it reminds of that other one you posted in...

As for Ben Folds, I think he's very talented, I like his album a lot, though I don't own it, just borrowed from a friend. Probably why I didn't even know he had been in a band before  :shock:

quiet you, you bring shame to the great nation that gave us sonowthen, norm mcdonald and the late great john candy

and not to mention all the fine nude bars

O Canada!
Our home and native land!
True patriot love in all thy sons command.

With glowing hearts we see thee rise,
The True North strong and free!...........

eddie is bitter about SNL, most people are after they leave

but eddie thinks that he saved the show from being cancelled ( which he did) so he deserves better

and the final straw was david spade calling him a falling star on one of those celeb news skits he did

that really pissed him off, and well to bad for us

but someday eddie needs a proper biography so people know that he is just not dr dolttle, what he is in fact is the best stand up comic ever

and one of the best SNL Cast members ever

yeah, Raw is truly one of the most brilliant pieces of stand-up ever.

And the Mr Robinson stuff, and Velvet Jones, and Gumbi... fucking classic.
