Can someone translate this for me? Certainly some folks are familiarI don't think anyone can. She is right about a lot of things, but
with Catherine's point of view and can give it a try. It sounds like a
well developed delusional system. As such, it is useless to argue.
Donating to an archive does not solve the problem of allowing people to
hear themselves play.
then she takes it to distortion levels that only the finest joksters
take for a laugh. It is impossible for most of us to know if she's
just messing with us or a bit...errr, off.
(sorry Catherine, I won't be able to see your reply about me being
some sort of liar or ...whatever you accuse me of being.)
Anyone who says they "don't understand" today's "evolved drum corps activity" - when
the presence of those who not only understand, but understand well enough to exploit
and manipulate by pretending to such understanding is well-documented (if only in
RAMD archives, let alone elsewhere) - makes a good front man, but not someone to
trust about anything.
As to some people deriving a benefit, you've just described the meaning and
motivation of nonprofit scams and frauds.
There's nothing stopping you from donating copies of all you have NOW to the Library
of Congress. Or, if they ain't interested in the recordings of such a purely
American art form using American instrumentation, surely in the vast sea of all these
"educators" out there, there must be a University who could be persuaded to become a
Too bad Ken Kobold's collection didn't wind up in such nonprofit's hands, rather than
the business disguised as a nonprofit fraud that did.
Speaking of DCI - if you haven't gotten some "understanding" as yet - they claim all
the time that their "teams" have been worthwhile experiences for some, and have also
brought some people to tears. Trouble is, EVERYONE making such claims also laugh
amongst themselves regarding the sorts of tears those are, and their "power" and
"cleverness" in causing such - while using such well- or ill-intentioned (whichever)
front men and women like you to continue prolonging such exploitation.
Donate your service all you like. But the fact that your collection is still for
sale as well as being used by those well-involved in "compromises", and your neglect
of such facts, tends to argue my case. You can bring the "discussion" back to
whatever you like, but your neglect of other realities - especially why there isn't
still a thriving drum & bugle corps which preserved and added to all that you
archive, so that your efforts wouldn't be needed - is telling enough.
That you "don't understand" is yet another issue. As far as I can tell, you are
simply "evolving" your marketing some more, all of it still nondocumented. If I'm
wrong, no problem for you. Trouble is, I'm still looking for a genuine instance of
the truth not being far, far worse than I thought.
