"O, Mr. Subject-Changer! La-la-la, Mr. Subject-Changer!"
"Hey, everybody! It's time for another episode of Mr. Subject-
"Yay! Yay!" <much applause>
"What subject are you gonna change today, Mr. Subject-
"Well, as you remember, I stated that The Who have 'never been
all that popular....except for a brief period when Tommy and WN
came out.' Then, Schrade said that The Who were voted "Band
of the Year" in Rolling Stone Magazine in 1979, clearly well after
TOMMY & WHO'S NEXT. So, I'm gonna *change the subject*
<cheers from the audience> by diverting attention from his debate-
winning comment & focusing instead on unrelated subjects such
as Moon's death & Rolling Stone Magazine album reviews."
"Brilliant, Mr. Subject-Changer! I bet people will completely
forget that Schrade proved that The Who were popular at another
time besides the years immediately following TOMMY & WHO'S
"Well, that's my hope. You see, whether Moon died around 1979
or not is completely irrelevant to my statement that The Who were
only really popular after TOMMY & WHO'S NEXT. Popular is
popular. And my 'icing on the cake' <wild applause from the aud-
ience> is throwing in the *even more* irrelevant subject of Who
album reviews that *appeared in* Rolling Stone Magazine!"
"You're the best, Mr. Subject-Changer!"
"In the end, I'm going to paint Schrade as an agenda-wielding
supporter of Rolling Stone Magazine. And before you know it,
this whole thread will be about Rolling Stone & Jann Wenner."
"Absolutely first-rate, Mr. Subject-Changer. You've outdone your-
self again. Well, that's all we have time for today, everybody. Tune
in next time when Mr. Subject-Changer takes an offensive statement
about Pearl Jam & twists it into a discussion about concert ticket
prices in the 1970s! You won't wanna miss that! Goodnight, every-
