Kulturkampf LOL, how is it hilarious I listen to Oi music?

And by Oi music, I do mean Oi music; do not get me wrong on the issue and make you think that by Oi I mean punk bands that are slightly inspired by the classics and over-use the word in the name of seeming cool....

I mean, the absolute, ultimate, quintessential international sensation of Oi music in the must unapologetic and amazingly beautiful way.

Favorite bands =
The Clash (not Oi, I know)
Vanilla Muffins
The Oppressed
Pluton Svea
Jocke Karlsson (only one album, the singer of Pluton Svea, Pro Patria, and now Pitbull Farm)
Legion of St. George
The Headhunters (the Oi project of Ultima Thule)
Legion Of St. George
Angelic Upstarts
Sham 69

And even a liberal Oi band like Los Fastidios still tickles my ears (yes, angelic uptarts are also generally liberal).

Dole 'catholic samurai'
'conservative punk'


Hmm.



And Kulturekampf listens to Oi. Thats fucking hilarious.

He's never made an argument.

He has said:

"You suck at English."

"You.. suck in general."
Don't sweat it. If you want a good laugh, just look at a picture of Max that had been floating around these parts a couple of years ago. I can honestly say that I have never met your mother, but I'm willing to bet that Max has bigger tits.

Geggy Welcome to the new age fags when it is possible for hackers to break into journalists' email system to delete real photographs that they don't want you to see and plant fake, out-of-date photographs like that one photograph of paki boys standing around an unfired missile along with false information in order to make a mockery out of liberal presses.

Although while that makes sense to me, I'm just letting my imagination run wiiiiild, baby.
Jan 25th, 2006 11:02 AM

Most children at military camp, maybe. :/

But this isn't a "conversation of modern technology"; it's a news story about things blowing up, and when you're talking about explosives, artillery shells aren't that far from missiles.
I disagree. I think most children know the difference between a missile and a round you put into a giant gun.

Hey man, your comment is pretty funny, it made me laugh out loud (they really need to come up with an acronym for when that happens.)

Jaeger S Meistersen I'm feeling egotistical...maybe seeing Kulturekampf start a thread about the definition of his own name struck a chord within me...who knows. So I just want to point out that nobody, and i mean NOBODY has tried to argue that it's not a missile...i owned that part of the argument. Go me.

A baby is a fake photo...a photo of the wrong thing is a fakeD photo. If you're going to speak english, you may want to start by learning to speak english.

It's called Nuance, smart guy. NOOOO WANTS! Nuance. Dig that shit.

kahljorn Who cares if they used a fake photo, anyway. It's not like it had any real effect. If this was, say, a fake picture of george bush giving a rhinoceros a blowjob then I'd agree that they stepped too far. But a mistake like using the wrong picture of debris? Come on. Most pointless thing to complain about.

Yes, if you sell it to blind person.

mburbank KittyKat came back after he said he was done with the thread which means he's a liar.

And if you all argue any longer about Punk (even though I started it) you'll turn it into jazz.

I was never punk. BUT I was an adult when it happened. PAST TENSE! Pick a new fucking name, the one your using already got used. Their is no continous revolution. Start your own fucking revolution. OH! YOU CAN'T! Because you haven't got the brains to start anything new so you co-opt something old.

And Conservative punks are Log Cabin Republicans without the dignity to hate themselves.

No, because nobody will be fooled into thinking it's a tank. But if you take a photo of a baby that looks like it could be bin Laden as a baby, and sell it as that then I would say that's a fake.

Agreed, but they were the only ones surfing it by 1976, they showed that anybody could surf and they were followed by dozens of other surfers who saw how much fun it was.

punk77.co.uk is an excellent British punk website by an original '70s punk, there's a good punk history section on it.

Kulturkampf It is a fake photograph, adveritisng it as an unexploded part of the missile that hit the target when it is a completely in-tact artillery shell.


I guess on very abstract levels you would be right, but let's not pretend that it is considered as such consistently -- it is splitting hairs and defending absolutely shit journalism.

To use your Rolex analogy, if someone paid $600 for a watch for your Christmas present, and then after you unwrap it, your friend discovers that he was decieved about the item's authenticity, do you then get mad at your friend for buying you a fake Rolex?
No I would be mad at the seller.

And I believe the French agency who sold the photo knew it wasn't really of the US bombing, but presented it as such, and therefore the NYT bought a fake.
Although I accept the NYT may have been innocent, they printed a fake photo.

I just don't see how the French agency could have innocently made such a mistake.
