need a reason to hate self-righteous music journalists? really? okay, here's Constellation Records reaction
to an article attacking label mainstay godspeed you! black emperor's 'unwillingness' to do an interview and send the article's writer a free copy of their last cd before it came out. the correspondence between him and the guy at the label are especially sad. after reading the whole thing and looking at his article again, you can see what an oxymoron music journalism can be. his entire article was just about his burned sense of ""privilege"", and it's only real content was rumors that he probably found on the internet [which constellation shows to be complete crap]. his article ends up being more of a bitchy blog entry than anything related to real journalism. i say that as someone who knows a lot about bitchy blog entries first-handedly, and as someone who really enjoys good, analytical music writing, and sorely doesn't get enough of it.
