> ...morrison just frustrates me. for all the talk about how it's a good thing as long as people are discussing one's work, i don't recall ever reading any constructive debates about him. it's always one person insisting that it's genius and another saying it's crap.
> i haven't been around these boards to see what the texture of the discussion is like, but i get the feeling from past history and from the frustration i'm sensing from you that it's no different.
> when i see people discussing things morrison wrote that i consider lazy and uncreative, my instinct is to write something snarky about him, because i can't think of a single writer who gets more credit than he does for work that i find entirely unremarkable and sloppy (not that i hate everything he's done; i like a very, very small portion of his output just fine), and every time i've tried to constructively criticize his work, it gets me nowhere. so it's a lose-lose for me.
> saying that "i know better," is merely my equivalent to the responses i'm used to getting from morrison's fans, because there's almost always a perceived implication that people who enjoy his work do so because they are smarter than the rest of us. that's why i tend towards snarkiness on the issue. i just wanted to voice my opinion.
