    i’m not really connected to any sort of congoing fandom experience and i can confirm that discussion of Dune was typical of how folk in my peer group talk about fiction but i wouldn’t dream of generalizing so far as to say that’s how we talk about books”

      @beyla: Thanks for the comment–I didn’t mean to generalize, but obviously, I did. I’m sorry for that. I tend to talk about books mainly with people who are deeply embedded in various fiction-writing communities (SFF, romance), so my perspective is probably a bit skewed.

    Here’s my thing about Amanda Palmer: She does nasty things and calls it art, and then when people call her on it, either dismisses their criticism as them picking on her, or being blue meanies.

    I don’t care if she’s the bestest musician in the whole entire world – I’ve never heard any of her music, I don’t have any interest in hearing her music (see also: Roman Polanski, et al), I don’t have any opinion on her music.

    Personally, I’m done with that kind of bullshit, and won’t support it no matter how ‘nice’ the person is in real life, or what kind of artist they are, or what have you.
