    I have to wonder at times just how "extreme" the concept of
unauthorized sampling is. I just found a tape in a thrift store of some
stoned people who made an audio letter on one side of the tape, then made a
fairly basic collage on the other. Kids in grade school are shuttled into
art class where they cut up magazines and collage them together onto
construction paper. I think that the desire to make cut-ups is fairly
natural, which is why even fairly mainstream types can enjoy things like
"Christianity Is Stupid". We might not be as extreme as we (or they) think.
