mixed feelings?

This was a disclaimer appended to a show on the nonsensenyc mailing list. I feel this way sometimes about events, products or performers, and I just like the passion and thought I would share the quote with you.

NOTE: We weren’t going to list this show or the one tomorrow because we have all these rules on this list about sponsored events and whatnot, and BAM and the Brooklyn Museum, as much as we love them and appreciate their existence, are, to soft-pedal a little, obnoxious branding machines drunk on the fatty overspill of corporations slavering over young, rich, and pre-rich Brooklynites. But, hell,
then we just felt like a fussy, know-it-all Nader and decided that these are our friends, and the friends of our friends, and they are being booked by people we like and respect, and hey, purity is boring. Enjoy a free night — and check out the stylish, comfortable furniture while you’re at it. Just remember, someone is paying for all of it, and they’re not expecting nothing.
