  • Title: No Frills, non-commercial and black
    Descriptive info: tagg.. org.. Thinking sound and sound thinking.. I assume people visit this website for information and ideas.. I also assume they can read English.. Graphics and animation are minimised to save time and money.. The No Frills idea comes from the low-budget UK supermarket chain Kwik-Save, acquired by Somerfield in the mid 1990s and since merged with the Co-op.. This web site started in 1998 and was first registered as.. org.. in March 2000.. On 17 November 2013,.. was ranked.. among the top 10% of domains on the intern.. et (#.. 3,099,798.. am.. ong c.. 30 million).. Its estimated worth was $4.. ,000.. USD.. It has a good.. Pagerank (5/10).. and over.. 90.. backlinks.. Its reputation was quantified as 80/100 (whatever that means!).. It has a good SEO score (.. 37.. %) and is certified as safe.. Non-commercial and independent.. I d rather pay  ...   keep this site running another year.. Thanks to everyone who contributed by downloading an ebook!.. Is there anyone out there who d be prepared to take over the running of this site? Or who has any idea of how to make its services available in any other way? It s one of the internet s most visited sites for musicology and popular music studies.. It generates a lot of encouraging feedback.. Still, I d like to dedicate more of the time I have left to producing materials and less to running this site.. Please.. contact me.. if you can help.. WHY IS THIS SITE SO BLACK?.. An ecological reason.. If.. Google Black Blackle.. can save terawatts of eneregy worldwide each year, I can certainly help by reducing global warming by a watt or two!.. If you run a site, why not go black, too?..

  • Title: Tagg's 'No Friends' page
    Descriptive info: FACETWIT/TWITFACE.. and the target group CIA creation scam.. Why I don t tweet.. Everyone should understand that when they add their friends to Facebook they re doing free work for US intelligence agencies.. Watch the video.. [1 mins].. Heard of CISPA (Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act)? Now [t]here are almost no restrictions on what can be collected and how it can be used, provided a company can claim it was motivated by 'cybersecurity purposes' , says the Electronic Frontier Foundation.. For more, read.. this.. I posted that in April 2012.. One person told me I was paranoid and maliciously spreading conspiracy theories.. Since Edward Snowden s revelations this year (2013) about the NSA, no-one s accusing me of paranoia.. If we didn t have such spineless governments brown-tonguing Washington I'd campaign to grant Snowden asylum in the UK.. Facebook is a great tool for intelligence gathering about individuals, says a CIA deputy director.. It s no joke.. Facebook, Twitter, Google etc.. are seriously detrimental to our civil liberties.. Corporations like.. Microsoft and Facebook.. have agreed to share all user activity and content with US government agents who don t need a warrant for such searches.. It s all in the name of cyber-security.. I'm aware of enough repressive measures taken in the name of your own safety to know better than that.. It s true: I have no friends.. because I prefer.. f r i e n d s.. Cyber-corporations claim they know who my friends are.. Bollocks.. They ve no idea what they re talking about.. I have no friends because the reality behind having friends in their system of social networking is for me and those friends to provide, free of charge, the vultures of coporate sales departments with yet another personally tailored and neatly defined target group.. A cheap deal for the capitalists wanting to make money out of us but not much good for me or my (real) friends.. No service is ever free: you always have to pay some way or other.. I prefer to pay up front for the service I need.. I'm sick of consumerism's propaganda pedlars pestering me to part with my cash for the benefit of the company they're working for.. They say the product or service is on OFFER [not SALE], that I will SAVE [not SPEND], that I will WIN [not LOSE], that there's CASH BACK [money coming IN, not going OUT], that I m getting something (that I probably neither want nor need) FOR FREE, that prices have been SLASHED to AS LITTLE AS 9.. 99, etc.. They seem to take me for a moron.. I resent that.. I don t want anyone who visits this site to be exposed, directly or indirectly, to the evil ethics and infantile machinations of advertising.. That s why I pay for this site out of my own pocket and why I don t do social networking on line.. I can make what I like and dislike public, as I m doing here.. I ve chosen to do that even though (or maybe because) US government bodies access this site on a regular basis.. I ve already been refused entry to the USA for having been a member of the communist party and I would not let myself be intimidated if I were subjected to other measures taken in the interests of freedom.. Anyhow, if you want to tell me what you had  ...   ).. In 2009 I Googled |.. +facebook + I had for breakfast.. |: about 1,200,000 hits.. The equivalent result for MySpace was 600,000.. Here are some other search results documenting the riveting content of social networking sites:.. Hits : |Search string|.. ----------------------------.. 14,500: |+facebook + Bob is an idiot |.. million: |+MySpace + I like sex |.. million: |+facebook + my favourite OR my favorite |.. 2 million: |+facebook + I go to sleep.. 4 million: |+facebook + my boy friend |.. 4 million: |+facebook + my girl friend |.. 7 million: |+myspace + I hate |.. 22 million: |+myspace + I really like |.. A helluva lot of personal details and opinion, here, most of them belonging clearly to the private, sometimes even intimate, sphere.. This vast amount of private personalia is strewn all over the internet, just like all those ill-concealed yet strongly emphasised private parts plastered on billboards all over the cityscape.. I don t see why we should have to be exposed to it, even less why we ourselves would want to put the private parts of our own lives on public display.. I don t want to know what someone I ve never heard of had for breakfast, nor if they like or dislike celebrity.. X.. , nor what they look like in their underwear or in the nude.. The web is, like it or not, a.. public.. space allowing comparatively democratic access to anyone wanting to take part in the.. global.. forum.. it provides.. This is my personal opinion about a public issue, not an exposé of my private parts or foibles.. How can exposing your private foibles on line be considered substantially different from walking down town with your private parts on display?.. Penultimate thought.. I think it s sad and ironic that so many individuals using online social networking seem to believe that the things of least interest to a general public are those they should publicise.. It s a crazy upside-down world in which the overriding mode of public presentation of human beings is one of decontextualised and desocialised individual subjectivities.. The opportunity of online networking to organise and to make the world a better place seems to be the exception rather than the rule in the world of TwitFaced FaceTwits.. Thank goodness this old man's glum view does not apply to thousands of other blogs and sites out there in cyberspace.. How many people really care about what I like ? Not many, apart from capitalists targetting my tastes and foibles so they can sell me, and the friends they hijack through me, stuff that none of us have asked to know about.. I don t see why I should let marketing departments or the NSA hijack relationships of shared values between friends.. Do you? Or do you only have friends because you have no friends?.. Twitter collects.. personally identifiable information.. about its users and shares it with third parties.. The service reserves the right to sell this information as an asset.. [A]dvertisers can.. target.. users based on their history of tweets and may quote tweets in ads directed specifically to the user.. (Source:.. Wikipedia.. entry referring to.. Twitter Privacy Policy.. Advertisers watch your every Tweet.. , and.. Twitter Vulnerability.. Twitter also stores your tweets so they can be accessed and analysed by the NSA.. How cute IS the ickle blue birdie-wordie?.. Squawk.. (Huddersfield, 2010-07-30, upd.. 2010-09-09, 2010-12-12, 2011-12-09, 2011-12-15, 2012-12-19, 2013-04-03, 2013-11-17)..

  • Title: Background and Copyright Information (P Tagg's website)
    Descriptive info: P Tagg s website information:.. Copyright Issues.. Home.. Info.. Audiovisual.. Updated 2012-02-26.. WHY DO THESE WEB PAGES EXIST?.. Six reasons.. Reason 1 (professional).. Some people complain that they find my publications hard to get hold of.. This web site partially solves that problem.. Reason 2 (professional).. Other people, including students, produce some really good stuff that is difficult to get hold of.. This web site contributes in a small way to solving that problem.. Reason 3 (personal).. We are subjected to a lot of propaganda and disinformation via the dominant media which are owned by multinational corporate fat cats.. This site provides the opportunity to spread other notions of the world we live in.. Reason 4 (both).. It s the 21st century and dead trees aren t a good environmental idea.. Besides, standing in front of a photocopier in a small room is not good for my health and it wastes a lot of time.. I can also get information to my students quicker and cheaper (not for me but for the taxpayer) if I use this website.. Reason 5 (ethical).. I believe that.. freedom of information.. should mean exactly what it says, in this case that information, ideas and knowledge should be freely available (like universal health care) to all, rich or poor, powerful or disempowered, wherever they live and whatever their situation.. That s why I don t charge for any services available on this site.. Reason 6 (ethical).. I regard consumerist propaganda (a.. k.. a.. advertising) as a cultural, social and ideological scourge.. I think it is essential to provide.. non-commercial.. sources of ideas and information.. There is an unfortunate contradiction between reasons 5 and 6, which is why I have to ask for.. donations.. How do these web pages help solve the professional problem?.. In order to make as many of my own texts as possible available and in order to save time and expense organising photocopies, I have converted most of the articles I have published in English to online-readable formats.. I have also converted several previously unpublished writings for purposes of online accessibility (See.. Online texts.. Several key.. texts by other authors.. are also difficult to obtain (e.. Franco Fabbri's work on genre and style).. I intend to make more such work more readily available by publishing it online.. I also include important work by my own students.. Since published course literature is scarce for most of the courses I teach, and since I previously had to spend inordinate amounts of time in front of the photocopier, I have converted important handouts to web-readable format so that students can easily access such materials (See.. Sometimes students turn in work that may be of interest outside those following, or teaching, one of my courses.. It would be silly if  ...   examples may not be used for commercial ends.. A few extracts of recorded music under copyright by others than myself, which are used in analysis, or which students need to access in order to fulfil course requirements, are stored as MP3 files in password-protected folders on this site.. No financial gain whatsoever is derived from the presence of these MP3 files on this site, neither by myself nor by any body I may represent.. For one set of solutions to problems of quoting music in notated form, see.. MMMSP Inc.. For a more detailed discussion of.. conventional.. copyright law s effects on research and education in popular music, see the folowing documents:.. Copyright vs.. the democratic right to know.. YouTube, DMCA complaints, counter-claims: how to beat the big boys.. Mostly about how to keep academic clips up on YouTube but also contains general stuff.. Pay-for-knowledge: the other obstacle to internet information.. Fair use definitions in US Code ('Copyright Law of the United States', 2011), §107 (p.. 19) and §118 (p.. 74).. [PDF, government document].. Fair use: the transformative factor.. (Wikipedia explanations and citations).. The Electronic Frontier Fo.. undation (eff.. org).. Lessig s.. Free Culture!.. Wikipedia's.. Critique of copyright.. Copyright and research in the humanities and social sciences.. British Academy report (Sept.. 2006) says that the copyright system may in important respects be impeding, rather than stimulating, the production of new ideas and new scholarship in the humanities and social sciences.. Cory Doctorow's stand on copyright.. Fair Use in the U.. S.. Economy.. Economic contribution of industries relying on fair use (Computer & Communications Industry Association (CCIA), 2007: Companies benefiting from fair use generate substantial revenue, employ millions of workers, and, in 2006, represented one-sixth of total U.. GDP ).. Wipout.. musicandcopyright.. More links.. CONDITIONS OF USE.. see.. http://www.. org/CC-conditions.. I assume people come to this website for information and that they can read.. I have excluded animation altogether and tried to keep graphics to a minimum so that pages will load faster, all in an effort to save both you and me time and money online.. There is already enough clutter on the web! The No Frills idea comes from the low-budget UK supermarket chain Kwik-Save.. Non-commercial and independent.. I pay out of my own pocket to keep this website running.. I'd rather do that than become dependent on income from sources whose activities I oppose or on those who don't like some of the things I have to say here: for example that advertising, like the capitalism it belongs to, sucks.. The reasons I don t use MySpace, FaceBook or similar arrangements are: [1] they include advertising; [2] they force everyone to join or sign up to their system; [3] they don't allow for my free book download service..
