The result of the discussion was Keep.
The article was a long list of quotes, to the effect that Pierre Boulez hates almost everyone, then a Wikitable with attributes such as penis size. When it appeared on VFD, I rewrote it based on a cursory misreading of the very scholarly Wikipedia article.23:57 24-Aug-10
- The entire point of this article is that as a musician Boulez has consistantly written off the entireity of music history with a series of controversial quotes. For anyone who actually knows anything about Boulez the re-write is one of the most unfunny and un-ironic articles ever written. Either keep the original, get someone who knows who Boulez is to re-write, or delete the whole affair.
- Also, the ENTIRE point of having a nocturne in G major, is because Boulez writes music that is in no key, and many describe as 'bangs and squeaks music'. Do please in the edit, at the very least do not point this out! The whole point is that it is ironic. I see very little point in keeping this article if you are intent on removing everything ironic from it. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by PaulMckenzieisafool (talk • contribs)
Sorry. I do know something about Boulez, now, and the current version does have humor, not just in the turns-of-phrase but in the description of his, er, talents, which is exactly ironic. It is preferable to your version, which did nothing but take one tack and beat it into the reader's head with repetition. I do see your joke on the G major illustration and have changed the caption so as not to spoil it.15:13, 15:31 20-May-12
