Now that I have your attention, what struck me as odd about the original objections to Marc Gartman’s Ween post was how the comments were so out-of-context and un-community in nature. I did see the “bigger boobed” version, am familiar with Ween, and have a fairly well-honed ability to read and comprehend.
In other words, I saw the photo was clearly the cover art for the album by Ween that Gartman and friends would be covering in December. And most importantly, Gartman was asking the PDD community if anyone knew a videographer for their Ween experiment.
Out of 47 comments, only one pertained to Gartman’s request. When Chase & others encouraged dismayed commentators to investigate the history of the album cover, instead of doing so another thread began, rehashing the old comments. So a viscous cycle of communicating about what is objectionable VS artistic intent began again. Brought me back to Gore VS Zappa.
I don’t really know Gartman; he could be a misogynistic one who fucks (see Lundgren, I did read your comment). What I do know is that he does not force Jerree Small to dress as Wonder Woman and gyrate when Coyote performs live. Nor was he asking for strippers to perform in a video. He stated his artistic project & asked for assistance.
I’m glad PDD gives everyone a voice, but really I’m more of an action kind of gal. In other words Emmadog, Carla & others, what do you do in your community to make the world better for girls & women ?
At the heart of PDD is a community of people reaching out to enlighten, entertain, assist and inform. But do we really need to censor others and bitch when we don’t get our way? If you’re going to do the talk, then do the walk. If you are going to bitch, then show me how you are making a change. I will post possible projects, courses of action, in the comments, but I’d really like to hear from PDDers.
