Dear Neil Tesser,

Thanks for yet another piece on a musician who fucking matters, namely Marilyn Crispell [Rock Etc., April 15]. To listen to her or others of kindred spirit--here and gone--is to walk with finger jade in hand inside pocket: something precious. Meanwhile, "men in suits" parade, hands in pockets, diddling themselves.



P.S. All these squares should leave Jonathan Rosenbaum alone. It's one thing to be a passive, politically correct fuckhead, as so many opinions seem to reflect. But here's a guy who's passionate and truly committed to the cinematic arts, and even somewhat erudite and opinionated--oh fucking no! Any thumbsucking, opinionated wimpy shit who feels compelled--ah . . . nevermind.
