[Nettime-bold] Re: <nettime> Entertainment Globalization Initiative


I agree with Mary-Lou, this is freaky bad shit.  I mean, two million years of 
hell on earth bad.  I doubt if nn likes it either.  Eryk can't like it, can 
he?  What about Brad, Alex, JD Keller, and Dan Schneider?  I doubt if anyone 
likes it really.  They think it's a military necessity.  

People just don't see all the metaphorical implications!!!!!!!!!!!
