unclear phrase in description of backing band[edit]

I'm not familiar with the phrase "term-time" - as far as I can tell (from web searches), it appears to be a Britishism. I'd suggest a more generally known term, particularly in an article on an American guitarist and songwriter. ( Unsigned comment by User:72.131.53.37 )

Possibly so. Can you recommend an American equivalent? Wwwhatsup (talk) 07:55, 14 January 2008 (UTC)

Official Website[edit]

Apparently the domain www.marniestern.com listed as an external reference is not hers at all and it is for sell. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 87.8.21.106 (talk) 22:16, 8 June 2008 (UTC)

Well spotted! I've removed it. Wwwhatsup (talk) 18:49, 9 June 2008 (UTC)

An External Link was removed for no apparent reason[edit]

a direct link to a recent career-spanning audio intervie was removed even thopugh it follows the description on the wikipedia external links description:

"Wikipedia articles may include links to web pages outside Wikipedia, but must conform to certain formatting restrictions. Such pages could contain further research that is accurate and on-topic; information that could not be added to the article for reasons such as copyright or amount of detail; or other meaningful, relevant content that is not suitable for inclusion in an article for reasons unrelated to its accuracy."

this is a direct link to the radio show, all rights reserved to the radio station, yet the direct link is to the online archive.

The interview is career spanning, recent, and includes a lot of vital information missing from the article.

cheers,

History Section is Plagiarized[edit]

Compare the Wikipedia Entry: "It wasn't until she was 21, that Marnie Stern's life began to the take her in the direction of the noise and punk-inspired experimental rock that would later define her music. She soon began learning finger-tapping techniques on her electric guitar and began assiduously practicing and recording songs until she had enough for a demo. Stern sent the tape to Kill Rock Stars, which immediately signed the young singer/guitarist to their 5RC imprint. The folding of the company, after the departure of founder Slim Moon in 2006, caused a slight delay in the release of her debut, In Advance of the Broken Arm, but the record, whose songs had been written over a period of two years in Stern's New York apartment, and featured drums from Hella's Zach Hill, finally came out in early 2007. Stern took somewhat less time to record her follow-up, releasing This Is It and I Am It and You Are It and So Is That and He Is It and She Is It and It Is It and That Is That in 2008."

To the Allmusic.com Entry (http://www.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&sql=11:jvfexqrdldje): "It wasn't until she was 23, when she heard Sleater-Kinney for the first time, that Marnie Stern's life began to the take her in the direction of the noise and punk-inspired experimental rock that would later define her music. She soon began learning finger-tapping techniques on her electric guitar and began assiduously practicing and recording songs until she had enough for a demo. Stern sent the tape to Kill Rock Stars, which immediately signed the young singer/guitarist to their 5RC imprint. The folding of the company, after the departure of founder Slim Moon in 2006, caused a slight delay in the release of her debut, In Advance of the Broken Arm, but the record, whose songs had been written over a period of more than two years in Stern's Upper East Side New York apartment, and featured drums from Hella's Zach Hill, finally came out in early 2007. Stern took somewhat less time to record her follow-up, releasing This Is It and I Am It and You Are It and So Is That and He Is It in 2008."

The plagiarized edit was done by Rockstar499 on 07:40, 10 April 2009. Although not every single word is the same between the entries, this still constitutes plagiarism. I don't know what the Wikipedia policy is on this sort of thing. Can we just use the entirety of the allmusic entry, then add a link and quotes to the history section here? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 169.234.129.216 (talk)

Gone, thanks. --Closedmouth (talk) 06:26, 9 May 2009 (UTC)

References for use go here![edit]

Hello- the External links section of biography articles is not a "parking lot" for unused sources. I removed the link farm sprouting up there and am placing all the sources that were there here. Please do the same in the future! Once you are convinced that the source has been used up, just cross it off the list here! Thanks. Leahtwosaints (talk) 08:51, 19 February 2011 (UTC)
