>OK, six months ago the long-awaited Best of Both Worlds DVD was finally 
>released, and there was precious little discussion of it on the list.
>Over a week ago, Mark's "Beds Are Burning" Oils book was released, - which 
>I for one am DYING to read -  and there has been NO discussion whatsoever, 
>despite my query of several days ago, to which there was no response.
>Seems everybody is too busy trying to score political points off each other 
>just to prove their intellectual and/or moral superiority.  Good for you.
>Yes, Bush won.  51% of the US is apparently happy, and 49% is not (and 
>don't split hairs with me over the exact fucking percentage, either, I'm 
>just making a point).  Most of the rest of the world is probably not happy 
>and had no say in it.  But nevertheless we now have to live with it, so 
>it's time to quit whingeing and work for change if change is what you want.
>Yes, the Oils often carried a political message and "the music and politics 
>of Midnight Oil" is apparently enshrined in the subject description of the 
>list.  But they have said themselves that first and foremost it was about 
>the MUSIC.
>So how about some discussion of what they were *really* doing that 
>unforgettable 25 years - that is, the music.
>P.S.  Flames will be returned with extra Tabasco sauce.
>P.S.S.  Unlike some who wanna pack up their toys and go home when someone 
>disagrees with them, I will not be quitting the list.  But recent posts are 
>getting more and more distant from the original purpose of the forum, and 
>frankly, it's fucking depressing.  Coming up on the 2-year anniversary, I 
>want to hear some Oils.
