:: [Prev] another reason to love The Mountain Goats [Next]
People who say they don't like feminism don't know anything about it. All they know is that they read some selected Andrea Dworkin quotes that they didn't like. None of them have ever read any Andrea Dworkin books, much less done the really intense mind-fucking work you have to do to understand what's going on in an Andrea Dworkin book. I would rant for Andrea Dworkin all day. She was really messed up in a lot of ways, but also brave enough to say, "Is it possible that the bedrock of our sexuality is essentially violent?" The simple answer is, "Of course not, because I enjoy myself. What's not to like there?" Well it takes a big person to go, "Maybe we enjoy ourselves because we're damaged." I got so mad when I saw this outpouring of scorn for her when she died. People weren't allowed to do that to Reagan, and he was an evil villain who rots in hell as we speak.
Go see the Mountain Goats tomorrow night at the Logan Square Auditorium. And get the new CD from your local independent record outlet, because it is very, very good.

Good article. I really should listen to his actual recordings, and not just the three songs that Atom and His Package recorded.
Also, I didn't know John Darnielle lived only 30 miles from me.
