RU Sirius, Louis Rossetto, Countercultures Deluxe


Last week, I reviewed RU Sirius' Counterculture Through the Ages for the Wash Post (online here).

Tomorrow in San Francisco, Sirius, along with Wired cofounder (and Reason devotee) Louis Rossetto, Burning Man creater Larry Harvey, and former punk star and expropriator of surplus value Jello Biafra, mix it up at the Commonwealth Club. Here's the 411 right from Sirius:

  1. “here’s the 411”? Nick, you’re too cool for school.

  2. Ironically with regard to another thread, “411,” when pronounced aloud, is the Algonquin word (“fouree leh hen”) for “cunt.”

  3. Yeah, like members of the “counter-culture” have $7 to their name. Hope you can get in with food-stamps or the audience might be lacking.

  4. Gary,

    He’s basically in your Michael Moore/Noam Chomsky camp.

    He was also responsible for bringing the world Wesley Willis, which may or may not be a plus in your book but it certainly is in mine.

  5. He’s got a liberal side and an anarchist side, but for the last decade-plus the liberal side has been dominant. Too bad: He has the distinction of writing one of rock’s best anti-Communist songs (“Holiday in Cambodia”) and one of its best anti-mellow songs (“California Uber Alles”).
