Hi folks,
Just stumbled across this one, anyone know if this is just a collection of copy/paste wiki content or an actual legit publication?
headscratcher/viral publishing?

Thought it was something along those lines, it’s almost like tabloid publishing.
Just use somebodys career to make a quick buck at their expense.
Though that aside I do think it would great to read a piece by the Rev. Funk on composition.
There is a definitely a book in that subject.

Do you think there is any chance venetian snares could publish a book on wiki content on Betascript publishing so?
That would be a shit read, but hey why not …

On the other hand. The material may be released under copyleft, but then again, Venetian Snares is a trademark, and using his trademark without permission is a clear violation of trademark laws.

There’s always the book on Breakcore:

I’m just wondering how this book manages to be 126 pages long, considering the length of the original wikipedia article. Maybe they put one word on each page.

haha, i was thinking the same.
Maybe is like: page 1 venetian snares, page 2 trackers, page 3 atari, page 4 shitty house… page 85 aphex twin wikipage, etc…

I guess this is for people like my dad who has trouble using google. Don’t know why he would read a book about V Snares.

Now you got me all excited.
