THE ARGUMENT FOR 400 ALBUMS
R. Stevie Moore
Madison TN, 6 FEB 2018
SOMEBODY HAS COURAGEOUSLY GONE ONTO MY WIKIPEDIA PAGE AND EDITED/REDUCED THE TOTAL NUMBER OF 'REPORTED' R STEVIE MOORE ALBUMS FROM "over" 400 TO "more than" 200. || CUT IN HALF. BEING POLICED. I CAN EASILY GO IN AND REVERT THE EDIT BACK, BUT THEN THE DISPUTE BEGINS. NOT QUITE READY FOR THAT. YET.

FAMILY, FRIENDS, FINDS AND INSPIREDS

I SHARE, EXPOSE AND DISTRIBUTE AS A "DJ" = MY WORK (within limits)

UPDATES:

comments from close associates:

Alright...saw your page on your website about 400 albums controversy-pedia...after long scientific study (or summert) I've concluded there's 391 albums on the album list of your website and 344 on bandcamp. Therefore...close enough innit. RSM is above wikipedia. I could be a bit off on the numbers with the website list maybe. 400 albums matter? Bit topical an that...


You have 354 releases listed on your tapelist page. That's counting live and additional projects you've been involved with. If we add the videos, the total comes to 370. So, yeah, you have 400 albums ///

wow! huge thanks. how'd you know about this? my newspage entry? lol. --- and what videos? the full length collections? not the song youtubes, is it? wonder how many are listed THERE? http://www.rsteviemoore.com/vidclips.html ///

I found out from your news page, yeah. I counted the live videos and videography/VHS videos as full releases. Didn't look at YouTube stuff yet. ///

BTW, the Wikipedia page has suddenly gotten a great new overhaul, i assume it's the same user. much better written and referenced. the chronology is much more accurate now. it kinda jumped around before.
he also even quotes me from some interview, admitting that my total album count is NOT accurate, that i never consciously found 400 titles, just a rough guesstimate. ///

I noticed that. The page looks much better, but still a few inaccuracies (like the album count). Was that the Wire interview from 2012? ///

at first i was royally pissed off that someone vowed to cut my estimate down, but i sort of see where he's coming from. HOWEVER now i must make sure and build it back up with actual new webpages for all the many gigs' soundtracks etc. i have abandoned doing all the tedious hard work to keep it updated, especially since 2011, and my move back to TN + the 4 years of touring.
another thing wrong: he insists that any self-published webpage citations are unacceptable - but that's bullshit - my entire web presence data is self-published! and he knows it. so, hypocrisy there. ///

Yes, he quotes WIRE.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/R._Stevie_Moore#Discography ///

i hadnt even seen that when i wrote my new manifesto http://www.moorestevie.com/press/wire12.html ///

I found the quote (about 3/4 down). My interpretation of that is your saying "close to 400, but I haven't had time to count them all." That was six years ago, too. I would've cited something more current--the tapelist, for instance, which lists nearly everything--for a write up like that. I don't think the user did as much research as he should have, prior to making the edits.
