Comments from James Smith

I was going to make a joke, but then I read through his filmography on IMDB and realized he has actually been in a fair amount of decent films. My favorite is probably the original Mission Impossible movie.

People seriously need to learn the difference between "Selling-out" and simply "Selling". There is nothing artistically destructive about making money for your art. If your art is of any worth people will want to pay for it. So what? There is nothing that is more artistically pure simply because no one wants to pay for it. "Selling-out" refers to artists that change their art, or allow it to be manipulated into something they do not believe in for the purpose of selling more of it. It is when their art becomes more about making money than making art. This is a hard line to judge (Did Modest Mouse sell-out? Or where their last few albums just less interesting?) But when you call someone a "sell-out" at least be prepared to have an intelligent basis for your claim.

It hasn't. Although, It has dropped off quite a bit since the invention of plastics and polymers.

This was actually a very solid album. It's a shame it got such poor reviews.

Hey Guys! I found something I think you should all see! I was complaining last week about not being able to reset my login password ever since Juliet smashed that bomb with a rock and reboot the Videogum universe. Well, I discovered a hatch in the forest that lead me to a Videogum backroom of sorts. It leads to a place that is smokey-white and sortof scary, and there are holes in the wall that look through our avatars' eyes so you can spy on people without actually being in the room with them. Which reminds me, I have to talk to a few of you about some things I saw happen in the Topher Grace thread last week when you thought no one was around. when I tried to change my password from within the hatch, it actually worked. So, I thought I should share. I really don't think there is anything sensitive about accessing the site through this though. Seriously it just seems like a deeper level of the new website's structure. Follow the White Rabbit: http://videogum.com/wp-admin/index.php -- By the way. From the stats written on the wall in here, it appears there have been 140,450 total comments on Videogum, and 140,443 "approved" comments on Videogum. I'm going to refer to the difference in these numbers as the "Videogum 7", and I bet you anything Videogum ends the season without explaining what 7 comments in the history of the site are not "approved". Mysteries abound!
