Cor Heebie McJeebie rails against those damned Student Reviewers and their ill-informed opinions – “A very negative, 350-word review was published by the Hotel Cadillac’s student-run newspaper, The Weekly Rate, written by a part-time student named Spiro Fitch. Through the Tenured Faculty Freedom of Information Act, I was able to ascertain that Fitch is enrolled in only four classes this summer. He’s also a kitchen-worker in the cafeteria.”
(In no way related to Sequenza21’s recent and surprisingly, er, ‘high-spirited’ attack on the American Record Guide (and then each other) – now pulled. Basically, the gist was that insurance salesmen had no place doing a bit of part-time work reviewing concerts cos, well, whaddatheyknow? Show me the PhD, then we’ll talk…)
Here’s a thought – maybe people who aren’t ‘qualified’ to the hilt actually say more interesting things about music than those who aren’t.
Expect less music and more insurance salemanship from now on here at the Rambler 😉
